"I dreamed a dream of days gone by, I dreamed a dream a life worth living. I dreamt that love would never die. I dreamt that life would be, forgiving...But the tigers come at night, with their voices loud as thunder. As they tear our dreams apart, as they turn our dreams to shame."

On the bright side, it's possible some of them could move on to other musical endeavours, so we'll just have to wait and see.

Currently listening to: Heartbeats with a Littmann Classic II S.E.

Talk back trembling lips, burning eyes don't start crying...

Ahoy all,

I may be a new guy here, but I've actually been listening to The Livid for years, I just never got around to chatting here. I've done my duty by telling friends about The Livid and such...but I must say I've had no success. It's tough being the one guy in the circle of friends who listens to indie...after a while your pals stop listening to all the band names you mention and songs you put on their mix CDs.

Anyway, I'm a Paramedic student in Ottawa preparing to fight the good fight on yet another front. If you're wondering what a Littmann Classic II S.E. is (see "Currently Listing To:", it's a fairly good (definitely not top of the line) stethoscope.

Musically I'm into everything except rap. I honestly forget how I got into The Livid. I can narrow it down to either an old Mp3.com section (were they ever there?) before the site had it's major overhaul, OR a link from the website of another indie band. In any case I estimate the year was 2001-ish when I first heard them.

Other bands I'm into include: The Alkaline Trio, Celebrity, Clutch, Cheerleader, Iconoclast, Saves The Day, Diamond Back (local band), The Creeps, and a myriad of classic rock bands including, but certainly not limited to CCR and Deep Purple. I really do listen to everything though, lots of oldies from the 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's.

I collect video games and flashlights (yes...flashlights) and hold a sizeable collection of both. I enjoy playing video games, and analyzing them for ideas and themes represented...as well as pointing out the devices and elements that are well done in them. Think of the way a scholar talks about books; that's the way I like to look at games...they may not be high art (yet?), but they are expressions of ideas. I don't have much of a collection of movies, mostly because many are not worth buying...but I do consider myself a movie buff of sorts. I studied Film in university but I'm not one of those elitist flim buffs who watches odd European art films exclusively. I haven't been to a theatre in quite a while though because I hate paying the highway robbery prices of my local cineplex to see rubbish. I don't mind renting rubbish though, it doesn't cost nearly as much and at least I can relax at home and discuss just how bad the film is as it plays with those in the room.

I've written reviews of games and flashlights online from a user's perspective (I'm not a professional in either industry) so you can find my ramblings all over if you really look carefully. Oh yes, and it's not that great of a story, but I can claim to have been on indie radio once on a station based out of Edmonton when I visited there once. And YES I did give the DJs some of The Livid, although I can't say if they ever played them...they probably got around to it eventually though. If nothing else they may have used it to get in their Canadian Content requirement for the show.

I played the trombone for two years, I can barely play the acoustic guitar, but I can sing (think Frank Sinatra/Marty Robbins) pretty well as long as I stay low, but I've never performed.

I'm sure this is really more than you care to know about me beyond my interest in The Livid, but I honestly hope you at least found my post to be an interesting read.

i'm interested in why you collect flashlights. big on X?





How do you communicate those emotions that are so intense that no physical expression or series of words can even scratch the surface?

Well, some people collect guns or knives or stamps...I collect flashlights. I see them as both useful tools and expressions of design ideas.

LED vs. incandescent is an interesting debate. LEDs are getting better and better all the time, with the eventual goal of replacing incandescent bulbs altogether. LEDs run cooler, last longer, are much more shock (drop) resistant), use batteries more efficiently and can come in various colours. Incans are cheaper to produce, tend to throw their light farther (this is really starting to change though), and their light cuts through smoke a bit better.

Incans are all the same colour though, a red/green/blue incan. light has a coloured lens, or the bulb itself is coloured glass. This makes coloured incans. much less effective because coloured lenses do not allow as much light to pass through them.

That's the short explanation of LED vs. incan. Both are capable of producing really white light, cheap LEDs tend to be more blue, while cheap incans are the familiar orange/yellow.

Personally I prefer LEDs all the way. Replacing bulbs is a huge pain, and if it's not a Maglite, you may have trouble finding replacement ones. I carry an LED flashlight with me at all times, and let's just say I would not be caught dead carrying my old Maglite Solitaire around anymore...unless it was modified in some way.

...and that's my flashlight schpeel.

Its been ages since anyone posted on here but i hope somebody's listening.
i cant remember how i came across The Livid but it was only recently. Unfortunately i hear the game is over for them. bummer.
i'm an aussie -(for those who dont know what that is, it means i come from australia, Oz, Down under whatever you want to call this little island where nobody knows anything)- not knowing anything referring to the fact that noone here seems to have EVER heard of The Livid!!I've only been sucessful in downloading two of their songs onto my media player so they're getting a good workout. I hope this makes sense and is not a foreign language to everyone or anyone who reads this, hence being a waste of time.
back to introducing myself... I'm loving a lot of bands at the moment, most you prob havnt heard of. Surely you've heard of Bush-the band. lovin them! Also Sarah Mcleod, formally of the SuperJesus, also Rogue Traders, aussie band fairly new on the scene.
Question... Is there any other Aussies out there? If so, how did you hear about The Livid?

sin is our aussie long-timer, and i think he still checks up every now and then. i'm sure he'll post to say hello. posts here are few and far between these days, but you can bet that the main regulars will see if anything's new once in a while and post their two aussie cents. so hi!

<----- Read.

Howdy doody. I heard about The Livid by accident in downloading Falling Behind (thinking it was an Incubus track, a method quite a few came across in discovering this band back in the days of Napster/early Kazaa).

Bush rock, Sarah McCloud is hot (and I had the good fortune of working with her a few years back when she was in Superjesus, my dad was supplying the P.A. for a gig in Wangaratta and I was helping out, mind you I was about 15/16 so I was stumbling over myself talking to her) and I've always been a Superjesus fan, Rogue Traders I'm not big on, though I haven't heard many tracks.

Anyway, hi and stuff.

welcome. The forums are pretty dormant, unfortunately, but still...welcome.

Yeah, since the bands no more, I can only imagine it getting harder to find any of their stuff. Good luck, though. If you keep looking, I'm sure you'll find some stuff.

What songs do you have?
