Music at your place?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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.

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.

    • They are owned by Media Resources in Canada. They have there own accounts and will also take work from National Sign companies like Philly, MC / Icon, AGI and other and than try to job them out.  If you can come to an agreement on price they are good pay. 
    • $ 1,120. a week to stay home.     PLUS a $ 600. Food Voucher a month to stay home on the couch.  TOTAL ........$ 1,270. a week.   And Here in NYC, Our Mayor,  Mayor DumBlasio purchased 34,000 Air Conditioners to GIVE away FREE to people who are ...? And the City will pay their Electric Bill  WHY WORK ?  
    • We still have some money from our PPP grant, thank goodness, so today we wrote another salary check, 35 hours to our three full time employees, 15 hours to a couple of part time "as needed" employees. We actually got a couple of emails from some regular customers, like Pepperdine College. We also snagged a new customer, even though it's just tiny vinyl jobs. It is our landlord. I told them that if they would buy their signs from us, we'd just take out the cost of the materials for the time being, and put everything else back into paying them our lease payment. Hopefully a couple of months of that, we'll have made a dent in what we now owe them, and we'll have a good new client for the future.    For anyone who sells ADA signs and gets them wholesale, we're working on something new that might interest you, especially if you do color printing and vinyl but don't have any way to do raised characters and braille. We've come out with a new line called "ADA/SterilEaze™." It takes advantage of a change in the ADA Standards from 2010 that almost no one knows about. You can have a completely separate raised character/braille message and corresponding visual message that is much larger, bolder, serif font if you want and placed much higher on the wall. It's just that the information has to be the same identification of the door or floor level. So, in other words, you could have a big hospital room number, say A135, mounted up above where most people could touch it and then down at the legal location have a very small virtually invisible raised sign, also A135, with braille below it. The visual sign's major requirements is that it must have high contrast and be non-glare and not use decorative fonts. The tactile sign doesn't need any color at all and it's even preferable to use tiny 5/8 inch high letters because that makes it easier and faster to read by touch. You could paint it on the back to match the wall color, for instance. Or, you could order a larger tactile plaque and put the company logo on the second surface or a message that says "Did you wash your hands?" or for a religious institution, a scriptural verse. A school might have the school mascot. Obviously, the blind person who only reads by touch is unaware of all this, and it does not interfere with reading the information needed.    The good thing is that the tactile sign will be extremely easy and fast to sterilize and it absolutely will not disintegrate or degrade in any way. For anyone who wants to sell ADA signs but can't do thermoforming it gives them an opportunity to provide the visual sign, and to provide any subsurface color or even decoration they might want to add to customize the background of the tactile sign. I should add why it's so important that the sign be thermoformed. Although photopolymer is advertised as a one piece sign, it's not. It's a water soluble gel layer on either plastic or metal. Too much moisture and the braille dots and edges of the characters disintegrate. Metal won't disintegrate, but it needs to be painted, so that's another porous virus catcher, and too much cleaning will eventually start to wear the paint away. You can apply letters and rasters to acrylic, but those signs may also start losing the adhesive adhered letters or braille dots may fall out if they need to be cleaned a lot. Thermoforming is a true one-piece or monolithic piece of molded acrylic with no coating of any kind on the surface required. Because it is molded, you can create perfectly rounded braille dots and also completely rounded character profiles, so its not only very easy to read, but easy to clean.    So, we invite all our electrical sign friends who have clients who would benefit, to inquire about our new ADA compliant SterilEaze™ system.  Steril-Eaze_Signs.pdf
    • I'm hearing a lot of conversations about Sign Company Employers having issues getting employees "back" to work.   Some find it easier to stay "unemployed" and collect a check.  Some want to stay partial employed to get the "Covid $600" check.     Some states like mine, the Grand State of California dripping back the Shut Down slooooowly, while a lot of states are almost fully open.   Anyone running into this issue?
    • I would love to see a sign magazine Call the " Sign Syndicate Magazine"  and I bet most of us would agree. A true sign trade magazine not catering to the corporate advertisers. Just the facts mam!  I wonder how much funding it would take to get it off the ground? What you say Eric?  We could all do our part by sending in articles and subscribing to it.
