I thought it would be a great idea to use this forum to share some ideas on music people listen to and get some ideas on new bands or good music. We always have music playing at our office and manufacturing plant.

Our latest two favorites are:

The FEELERS - Album: ONE WORLD - kick ass New Zealand band

Empire of the Sun - Album: WALKING ON A DREAM - very odd Austrialian band - all the rage in Australia, Europe, and Japan

And this does have to do with signs/art - we all listen to music at our offices/plant - it keeps us all moving.

We listen to Sirius (XM) satelite radio in my shop. We usually have it on Classic Vinyl, which is basically classic rock. When we get bored of that we listen to Alt Nation which is current alternative rock music. We also like the Coffee House, which is mostly acoustic songs.

When I am alone I listen to Howard Stern, but it's not very work appropriate so I only listen when no one else is around.

We sometimes listend to SLACKER RADIO on our iPhone system - the comedy channels make for a good break and make us laugh. Laughing is good medicine I have learned recently from top Dr. in State of Nevada. Improves your health in many ways.

Country makes me feel :usaflag: and :amerflag:

You would love some of the Australian country music - a lot of cowboys.

In fact since so many men went to work in concrete/building industry in Australia it left an opening for women to find a lot of work being cowgirls...or jilaroos

There was lot of Greek rap bands in Athens on a recent trip there - very odd.

My music depends on my mood.

• Blues

• Hiphop

• Punk

• soft mooshy music

• 80's

80% of the time it's talk radio. Country I can't stand, but love the message. Garett (Elite Lamp) and his wife, along with myself and my wife just got back from a Country concert here at the Cricket Amphitheater last weekend (They are fun as hell to hang out with), a fund raiser for all the fallen soldiers, namely their kids college funds. Charlie Daniels rocks :headbang: I'm not really down with country, but I truly enjoy watching that man with his Violin, he shreds that thing. It's like watching Santa Claus with a big belt buckle, and a big cowboy hat!.

It's once a year, the wife loves country, it's a good cause, so I go and endure for one night. :P

I feel you on the American thing though, so true!

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life. - Winston Churchill

Nice, I saw Charlie Daniels at Cricket a couple of years ago, along with the Marshal Tucker band.

I'm going to Brad Paisley there in October because my fiance told me so. :0wn3d:

anything with a fast tempo beat is good when I bend. It helps me make the glass dance.

During the day, no music

GOOD things happen for a reason......

I watched "Flight 666" on my flight home from LA the other night, and being a long time Iron Maiden fan I loved the movie, and it has me on a bit of a Maiden kick.

:headbang: Up the Irons! :headbang:

Marko, I too love Maiden. A little Judas Priest thrown in for good measure and I'm good for a road trip.

Then I'll change the channel and listen to Keith Urban, Brooks and Dunn ect...

Weird Huh??

You have no idea - will go from very heavy rock, to classical music, to off the beaten track foreign bands, and then to some of the new American acts. It is rather interesting how the music world is going global again - in a big way - it is like the 80s all over again.

I just got 5th row tickets to see U2.

I can easily flip from Maiden to Sinatra to Chili Peppers to Duran Duran to Croatian folk music.

But Keith Urban or Brooks and Dunn? Sorry - I honestly just don't get it.

Another one I just don't get, to be honest. I can handle everything up to Rattle and Hum, but after that I'm unable to listen. Ditto for AC/DC after Back in Black.

U2's new album is pretty good.

Went to a Duran Duran concert last month - they are getting old.

Hell, we just paid outrageous amounts for Depeche Mode tickets.

I cannot do Country - not my deal. Closest to it is the lady who is #1 in Japan and Australia - Delta Goodrem - she is just nice to look at as well.

On my weekend days alone at the shop it is blues as loud as I can take it. During hours I have always felt it should be oldies or country. I think these two styles are the ones that are basically accepted by everyone that may come through my shop at any given time. I dont mind the guys listening to other music styles, I just ask that they put headphones on to listen to their music or turn it down/off when someone comes through.

Ozark Mountain Daredevils or Old Crow Medicine Show. nuff said

Guess not here for most folks. But, I might of listened to a song or two of those particular bands.

I like country...

I grew up with my Dad listening to Southern rock type music and my Mom loving American Country. She listen to George Jones and Tammy, Slim Whitman (god, that is hard on the ears), Conway Twitty and what not. I heard CDB and was hooked and then caught the Bocephus bug. Learned my Waylon and the boys from there.

I setup custom playlists on www.justhearit.com as well as slacker radio. Right now, I have John Corbett on which will be followed by Rascal Flatts...

Slacker kicks ass.

Seriously Doug check out Empire of the Sun and then ask Rodney how popular they are.

You have two dates! Its been years since I've seen them

Saw Green Day at the Hard Rock Hotel parking lot concert venue a couple of years ago - was awesome concert.

We provided a lot of power supplies to YESCO on the new Hard Rock Hotel upgrades.

    • I went one year all excited to have a glass bender get together and it didnt happen...i sure as hell am not going being forced to wear a damn mask, its all a ploy...
    • Still working through the quarks.  At this point please contact us, reply back, if anything is not functioning correctly
    • After a lot of inquiries I'd just like to mention that we now have plenty of stock Brass Neon Tube Supports, the conventional 1.75" size.   You can place orders using out online cart in case quantities of 500 or smaller quantities of 100          
    • Anyone going?   I think I'm opting out this year.  I love the Vegas Show but the idea of walking around masked up doesn't sound enjoyable, especially trying to have conversations with them on in the middle of a convention hall.  The idea of walking around a resort with a mask on just doesn't bring excitement 
    • So, thought I'd give a sneak peek into our New 2021 BrightON Line.   CHANGES The big differences between our upcoming version vs our existing is the following.   • Slightly Better 6500K Bin • Aluminum PCB from Fiberglass.  Because our modules are already super efficient and under driven, this really isn't needed, but it sure is nice to have for thermal cooling (Except BrightON MINI) • Wider 180˙ High Efficient Optics from 175˙ (Picture below)   We added a 3 Diode Module BrightON III & Mini which will be a 12V Module.  The BrightON II and IV will remain 24V         BrightON II     BrightON IV     BrightON III     BrightON MINI         I underexposed these shots below to give shops the ability to see the light angle.  Last shot is what I would call real time and not under exposed     Current BrightON II     NEW BrightON II - Check out that angle!!     Real Time Shot         If our current BrightON Module Line wasn't already Super Fantastic as it was, it just got better.   Most important....besides all the usual specifications I listed above, it's more about the efficiency of the chip we are using in our LED Modules, it's Super...SUPER efficient which translates into more light for LESSER power.  This is why we are able to keep our LEDs "Under Driven" whereas other will run and operate right on Peak and in some ways push the limits which results in faster Lumen Maintenance, or Light Degradation over time or outright catastrophic failure.   Well, we're SUPER excited for what's coming
