    Music Forum?

    I know this has been discussed before, and there is a music social group, but I think it would definitely be cool to have a music forum set up. It's easily one of, if not the most commonly brought up subject in off-topic, much like politics/religion was prior to the Cave. Although the social group exists, it's definitely an "out of sight, out of mind" type thing. Mods, would this be difficult to implement? Angie, jdewaard, I'm looking at you guys. I think (and it's just my opinion) that this subject could warrant it's own forum...

    I think it would be cool. I'm always interested in new (and old) stuff people are listening to. There are certainly plenty of topics to discuss.

    Sounds like Napster v2.0...LOL

    Music seems like a limited conversation unless people start trading MP3 files and I'm not sure Jeremy wants that.

    Possibly. I don't think it's anymore limited than forums like Campus Life. Also, people already trade files through PMs, giving out emails, etc. If you bring people together on the internet, music files get traded. Inevitable.

    it would be nice.

    Sorry for not responding earlier. I think maybe even a whole "Pop Culture" forum could be helpful - movies/TV shows/music could all be reviewed/discussed in there.

    That would be nice. Two other boards I post on have "Entertainment" subsections that are fairly active. Not that the OT forum isn't great, but it would help declutter it a bit.

    If you read Paul Shirley's blog on ESPN....he is pretty up to date with up and coming bands.....you know, just to make conversation. I actually look up the random band on www.songza.com and give them a shot. Shirley has some great rock taste.

    Check these guys out: The Gaslight Anthem

    They're good. Thanks Paul Shirley.
