  • I don't know if this is old news or not, but we all know about the alligator that follows your mouse around on avey's website. Well i just noticed a white circle on it and i double clicked it, and it started playing music in my windows media player. Lyricless, short, swampy music.
  • wow that's pretty cool. i really like the layout on the side its really cool
  • where is this White Circle that you speak of? I seek yet do not find!
  • look inside yourself! what does yr heart tell you?

(see the pictures I posted on page 18 of this thread)
  • [quote="winilula"]where is this White Circle that you speak of? I seek yet do not find![/quote] hmm. i was just clicking around and there is a white circle on top of the alligator that follows your cursor. and you click the circle. Actually, i just checked. SOmetime it doesnt apear, but if you still click on the alligator a couple times it plays.
  • The strawberries on the Strawberry Jam album cover look a lot like alligator heads
  • wally wally wallace i see what you mean the alligators are present but only subtly !! praise the alligators and thier unique references !
  • bi jetz 50i - peach weber thats what came up when i played laughing heiroglyphics into Tunatic (Which identifies songs by sound) Looks like avey sampled a german song by a comedian(i dont even know) in switzerland. its so weird.
  • On Keep and Down There, especially on Ghost of Books and Heads Hammock, it sound like Avey is inspired by Fever Ray/The Knife, and Karin Dreijer´s way of singing. Anybody else thought of it?
  • I think Wini mentioned something in this thread about it being difficult to listen to since it's such an emotionally charged piece of music. I've listened to it through a second time now and I'm starting to understand that.

  • It's almost Fall...it's almost time to start listening to Down There again. I realized I haven't listened to it at all during these hot months, but I know I will once it gets colder again.
  • i listened to it about a month back and enjoyed it just fine... maybe even a bit more than usual! maybe the really hot weather of the time made me feel all the more swampy (&depressed) laze the day away Hey!
  • That's true, the sounds and rhythms and bleep blorps are very swampy, and swampy signifies hot and humid (although swamps exist year round). I should listen to it again. Sometimes my life goes in directions where they just don't fit, and so I don't listen to them at all. It has been one of Those Times for a long time.
  • There are cold swamps, you know. Cold swamps. Cold rainforests, too.
  • I've actually been listening to it more often this summer than I had when it came out... I know it's got a fall vibe to it, but I never really gave it a chance when I first heard it. I 're-discovered' it near the end of spring, and now I listen to it nearly every day! It's really a great album. <!-- s:)) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt=":))" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:)) -->
  • I really really love this album now. Something about the pain in his voice just makes the songs very powerful to me. Depressing, but powerful.
  • Album schmalbum. It's a schmaulblum. The best dern schmaulblum we've dealt with 'round these 'ere parts.
  • [quote="MoonDog"]I really really love this album now. Something about the pain in his voice just makes the songs very powerful to me. Depressing, but powerful.[/quote] Exactly. I don't think there is any other song out there (by anyone) that can trigger as much emotion in me as "Laughing Hieroglyphic" does. It really grabs ahold of me- mind and body. This album really came through for me a couple weeks ago when I needed it most. Helped me through some rough times.
  • It's true that when I think swampy, I do think humid weather, but the album as a whole just has this fall/October feel to it. Anyway, I'm going to give it a shot tonight while driving around. Perhaps it will be even better especially since I haven't listened to it in quite a while.
  • I'll listen to it, too!
