Kiefer and Mark, you may be interested in a band named the Soft Moon out of the Bay area. They've released some singles, an EP, and an LP. Their music is reminiscent of Twitch-era Ministry. Their new album Zeros comes out Oct 30th. Great date for release. Here's the first single Die Life from Zeros:


And the Soft Moon's frightening midnight drum circle on top of Mt. Doom title track from last year's EP Total Decay:




Right now, I'm enjoying the new album by The xx that was released this morning. Been listening to parts of it all day long. Just finished listening in it's entirety. The record won't be everyone's cup of tea, but when it comes to setting that mood for me, it's hard to beat. Minimal, delicate, and sexy, it's a record to play on cool breezy nights with the windows wide open. In fact it's the perfect mood setter for tonight, as the season's first cold rain falls down outside. Like vicoden for the soul.

I love the song Sunset on the record, but the single Chained is pretty damn good too:

All great records.

Over 60 pages on an Alpinist site and this hasn't come up yet? :shock:

1968: Where Eagles Dare starring Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood

(If you prefer it without sound effects.)
What's the movie about? Here's a movie trailer in HD.
For you OCD math types, here's a different kind of "bagging" from the film.

1979: "Where Eagles Dare" by the Misfits (best version, decent video, terrible dub over at end)


1983: "Where Eagles Dare by Iron Maiden (lyrics inspired and based on the movie complete with simulated machine :guns: )
Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

The evolution of a song. I just knew this was from the 80s when I first heard the Flo Rida version on the radio.

1988:


2011:


2012:
"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."

Open the windows wide at night and swim in autumn's winds...



A beautiful song and video from Grizzly Bear's wistful new record Shields that was released earlier this week. So far, September's better records have been drenched in melancholia. Sign of the times I suppose.

Marilyn Manson's version of, "I put a spell on you."
This thing is frigging awesome. Great version. A lot darker than the CCR version.
With Haloween around the corner, thought it would be more appropriate.
