Re: What (if anything) do you listen to when playing BZ?

e.s. posthumus Absolute Genius. Boresnake, I couldn't agree more. Until about 6 months ago, I had never listened to vinyls - but just before I left for university, my dad gave me his vinyl collection. It amazes me how rich and warm it sounds. Even though the bitrate of CDs supposedly gives a high e...

Re: What (if anything) do you listen to when playing BZ?

With a good table, arm, cartridge, and phono stage, vinyl just gets even better. The clicks and pops that some people hear is usually just dirt on the records, and with a good cleaning, LPs can be dead quiet.

Re: What (if anything) do you listen to when playing BZ?

I am very serious about two channel audio, and I usually listen to music in the background while I play bzf. I like alternative pop, rock, soul, jazz, and alternative folk, although I usually listen to Led Zepplin, The Who, or other rock bands when I play bzf. When I am not playing bzf, female singe...

I don't think the maps make the game, although there are a few maps on which I don't play. I think that the players that make the game.

Uh, how would you KNOW thats before his time, exactly? Maybe it IS his time!
Because the album was released before he was born.
