  • Several months ago, I was diagnosed with glaucoma. The eye drops I were prescribed also got rid of the frequent headaches that I'd had ever since I was a teenager.

  • The good camera work makes me think it was staged.

  • I don't have any problems with their actions. As long as they aren't hurting others, I don't see where anyone has the right to control someone's behavior. However, we all need to beware that our permanent records are much larger than they were wh…

  • Sailer has written an article in which he summarizes a lot of his beliefs.
  • I don't know if she is a good candidate, but I certainly find her interesting. I don't see any scenario that is at all likely in which she gets the Democratic nomination, though. Even if Biden's health fails and Warren gets taken out by a scandal, I…
  • Hillary Clinton says Tulsi Gabbard is a 'Russian asset' groomed to ensure Trump reelection Edit: Here is another source for the story.
  • Why do guitar bodies or necks cost more than complete guitars?
  • I now have a third guitar in playable condition. My late brother was a bit more than eight years older than I am. He bought a Teisco Audition electric guitar in, at a guess, 1969 or 1970. (It looks like this one.) His best friends were all musicians…
  • I like how she moves, too.

  • A guitar made out of clay?
  • What they call chromatic sounds atonal, but I don't see why you couldn't write tonal music using the chromatic scale as the basic frame of reference. Suppose the reference scale is a chromatic scale in which the notes are numbered 1 through 12. If y…
  • The popular blues scale isn't just a subset of the major scale, and there are three minor scales, two of which aren't subsets of the major scale. So the chromatic scale isn't used in its entirety, but a lot of popular music draws from it. This compl…
  • @fenomas said: I understand why you frame it that way, but what you wrote wasn't really predictions, so much as apologetics. I disagree. The rise of a white party and a non-white party is a prediction. Increased bloc voting is a predictio…

  • @filious said: that post reminds me of rudyard kipling Rudyard Kipling was an optimist.
  • I've been avoiding reading this thread, knowing that it would probably cause me distress. Fenomas, I'll be glad if none of what I think is going to happen comes to pass. I am not optimistic.
  • I've been studying music theory. One of the reasons that I wanted to learn guitar is so that I could learn music theory. I've always wondered why some sounds are musical and others are not. I don't find it difficult, but I've noticed that the numero…

  • Despite frequent backsliding, I've sworn off this stuff. Nevertheless, I'll try yet again. Consider the Lee Kwan Yew quote: In multiracial societies, you don't vote in accordance with your economic interests and social interests, you vote in a…
  • And Then They Came for Richard Stallman ...
  • I just realized that messed up the math on my fantasy guitar. The math is technically correct, but it is counting some capacitor selections for when the pickup would be turned off. The capacitors would be different, but they would make no practical …
  • Yes, from what I've read/watched tone wood is way down on the list of things that make a difference. I'm surprised that it makes any difference at all. I would have guesses that two pickups held up by a strip of Styrofoam would sound exactly the sam…
  • I cracked up: Justin Trudeau Wore Brownface at 2001 ‘Arabian Nights’ Party While He Taught at a Private School
  • Unfortunately, the format the emails are in make them difficult to quote. Pages 19 and 20 of the emails looks like a burn-the-heretics mode to me. Also, see the statement saying debating the definitions of rape and sexual assault isn't productive. G…
  • I looked through the leaked emails. I didn't feel like reading them slowly and carefully, so I might have missed something. The gist of the notes seems to be Stallman defending his late friend, Marvin Minsky. People have been accusing Minsky of s…
