Ok picture the scene.

A phoenix grabbed you from your house and flew with you all the way to a mysterious desert island with a mains plug and a massive CD player.

Just before the flight, the phoenix said to you,

"You can bring 5 CD's with you". That is all.

So you grabbed your Cd's and off you go.

And remember you are on this island for ever, so you can't get bored of them, they have to be good albums.

(you survive by eating coconuts and drinking the milk)

So, what 5 Cd's would you take to a desert island with electricity and a CD player...

Oh my, this is certainly hard. If it's going for something I'll never get bored of, I have to say:

Coheed And Cambria - Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV
The Ataris - So Long, Astoria
Finch - What It Is To Burn
Kanye West - Late Registration
Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends

These aren't my 5 favorite CD's necessarily, just ones that I can listen to for a very long time without ever getting tired of them.

Brand Nizzle - Deja Entizzle
(For those moments when I feel like being told stories by Mr. Lacey, and for some jazzy pop-punk

Refizzle - The Shape Of Pizzle To Cizzle
(For those angrier moments, and so I can shout as loud as I can "CAN I SCREAM?!"

The Fall Of Trizzle - Dopplizzle
(To remind me how a band can be played so amazingly by people under 20 and for some mind-blowing guitar licks)

Blinkizzle - Dude Rizzle
(For those moments you wanna run around naked and fornecate with fish. What, just me? Fine, how about some funtastic pop-punk)

Jimmy Eat Wizzle (LOL) - Clarizzle
(For some awesome lyricary and songwriting by legend pop-punkers)

Geez, Joel didn't you read the story, the phoenix said to bring 5 CD's, not an ipod ?! :rolleyes:

Now that I've read the story, I wanna know why an island would have electricity on it anyway. In which case, I'd wander off looking for the source, because someone must've been there to install it, then I'd try and get help to get off the island. Lost style :cool:

10-26-2005, 09:30 AM
Geez, Kif.

It's a mysterious island, it's magical, leave it man.

MINE:

Rancid - And out come the wolves
For the times where i want to listen to the best band in the world.

Refused - The Shape of Punk to come
A bit of hardcore for me to listen to and scream to.

Thrice - The Illuison of Safety
To listen to some amazingly good guitar work and get blown away by awesome heavy songs, song after song.

Against Me! - Reinventing Axl Rose
For when i want to get up chant, scream and shout my heart away!

Coheed and cambria - In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth 3
For when i want to listen to something a little differnet and amazingly catchy.

I think that's right.

If its magical, the chances are there is a magic pixie, you could talk to him and he could magic you home to change you cds everyone once in a while.

I love how you deleted your post and then made it again with all the extra bits. Very smooth.

:D

Hmm this is pretty impossible. Instead of getting 5 CDs i'd probably get a cricket bat and batter that f'uckin pheonix into oblivion, but as me doing that would ruin the thread i'll take...

NOFX- The Greatest Songs Ever Written By Us

Descendents- Everything Sucks

Lightyear- Chris Gentleman's Hairdresser (which i can't currently find and it f'ucking me off. The phoenix won't be happy waiting for me to find it)

Captain Everything- It's Not Rocket Science

The final CD would have lots of Bad Religion, Rise Against, Bouncing Souls, Filaments, Leftover Crack, Subhumans, TSOL, Good Riddance and many others copied onh to it.

Geez, Joel didn't you read the story, the phoenix said to bring 5 CD's, not an ipod ?! :rolleyes:

But an Ipod obviously has more songs on it than 5 CDs. I think the phoenix would be pretty reasonable about it.

Angry Balled Fists!
10-26-2005, 09:54 AM
Er, no.

It would be a waste of mains and cd player if you just brought your ipod.

The phoenix isn't reasonable, it sticks to the rules.

Yeah but I'd rather listen to 5 great CDs really well through an awesome sound system, than use my Creative Zen to listen to 20GB of music only to get

A) My ears hurt from headphones
B) The battery to run out and nowhere to charge it

Exactly, Kifs got the idea !

By the way Dan you could've avoided this whole deal with a simple "What's your favourite 5 albums ever?" thread title

You know, just for future reference...

Thursday - Full Collapse
Amazing album. Plus my favourite Thursday song Standing On The Edge Of Summer.

Poison The Well - Tear From The Red
It's a mix of old and new. Basically the transition between YCBY and TOoD. I could have both styles in one cd instead of taking two.

Coheed & Cambria - Second Stage Turbine Blade
My favourite Coheed cd. A great cd overall, one that I can't get bored of.

The Get Up Kids - Four Minute Mile
Classic, has my 2 favourite songs by them. Plus it's the first one I ever heard of theirs so it holds some nostalgiac value.

JamisonParker - Sleepwalker
Currently one of my favourite bands. If they weren't this would probably be replaced by The Changing Of Times.

Say It Like You Mean It - The Starting Line

Coheed and Cambria-Good Apollo I'm Burning Star IV Volume One:From Fear Through The Eyes of Madness

Coheed and Cambria-In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3

Taking Back Sunday-Tell All Your Friends

Brand New-Deja Entendu

Senses Fail-I'd take a burnt CD of theirs with their EP and their full length because I like the EP more but it only has 8 tracks on it so I want the full length too.

I might take Rise Against-Revolutions Per Minute instead of the Senses Fail and if the bird said I couldn't take burnt CD's I would take Rise Against-Revolutions Per Minute.

I didn't put Second Stage Turbine Blade because it doesn't have as many tracks as the other Coheed CD's, I'd rather have some variety too.
