Hey boys and girls,

My family recently decided to renovate our basement which was nothing more than a storage area until a few months ago. So for the first time in my life I have a basement to hang out in and have people over etc.

Since we've remodelled it, it doesn't have that warm, cozy, hangout feeling that basements should have. The walls are bare, we've got a few couches down there, a tv, some recording equipment, an old juke box, a shuffleboard table, and a few other pieces to try and bring the room together.

I know I should be writing this in the interior design forum, but I'm looking for the ultimate hangout and who better to ask than fellow musicians. So give me your best ideas on how to make this place the best basement ever.

Whether it's a record player, Hendrix posters, a hookah bong, whatever just send me some ideas.

I should post pictures of my basement. Tripping on acid is mad fun in it.

I recommend a good color scheme and a disco ball.
My style is impetuous.
My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious.
I want your heart.
I want to eat your children.

Loads of posters, drum kit, guitars and big amps and shizz.

And what better than a fridge!
#7
You sound like that Fritzl fellow

But seriously, get a nice bong, awesome posters, some DVDs, ping pong/pool table, and a mini fridge.

Well the ghosts at my place tend to just hang out upstairs, rarely making the trek downstairs.

Come on you pit junkies, give me some ideas.
#9
Dark walls, shag carpet, leopard print rug, disco ball, some leather ****

Get some candles too, or some low lighting and ****, nothing too fancy, just loads of tacky crap that you would never actually put in any other room of your house.

Dig a hole in the middle of the room. A big one, don't be a pussy. Then plant a tomato tree in the hole. Do it.
#17
Get thick, light colored carpeting for the basement floor. Studio lights.

If for general entertainment, built a fake wall and install a flatscreen in it.

If for music production...let me know first.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Flatscreen TV + surround sound where the couches are, that'll definitely give it a brighter feel. Paint the walls possibly? Oh and if you're into movies, get a bookshelf and fill it with your DVD's and get a popcorn machine .

POOL TABLE...ive always wanted to own a pool table, and have the space to use it
"Music is moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and a gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order and leads to all that is good, true, and beautiful"

Whatever you do, don't get a dancing washing machine down there.. I heard some other guy had trouble with this problem once.

Tomatoes grow on plants not trees...


Im agreeing with the Disco ball, shag carpet, and a leopard print rug.

But a disco ball the actually spins, and lights to bounce off on it. Or go hardcore and get a fog machine and some lasers to bounce off of it. Play some Floyd, smoke some weed and take some acid, lay down on the leopard rug, and trip.

Get a record player, Hendrix posters, and Hookah. Then put some rugs on the floor/walls to make it less bare and echoey. Try and get some natural light in there too.

Man I would kill for a finished basement. I would put a bar, and big flat screen.

Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

Maybe he meant like a spider or something.

Wall Stacks, pool table, Penis statue.
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"
