Not while I'm outside working with the chainsaw. If it's working fine: then I don't need it. If it's NOT working; I use hand tools cause there is a job that brought me out there. No time to read.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 April 2020 - 03:07 AM)

You can Google manuals these days.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

Oh goddammit another Nemesis Prime to covet.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Why can't we get some transformers crossovers with groups that have actual musical talent?

I'd buy a Sabaton themed redeco Blitzwing.

Or an Ozzy Osborne Mindwipe.

Or rotf Hubcap decked out in ZZTop regalia.

Is that a dis against both Wu Tang Clan and Linkin Park?

Putting together verse and beats may not be one's cup of tea, but that doesn't talent and skill isn't still required to make it happen.

I hope this isn't one of those "rap real isn't music" things....

It is a dig on them. Though I do feel a little remorseful about taking a swing at the recently departed Chester Bennington, but a tragic death does not absolve one of their sins against my ears.

And no, I do not consider rap to be music. Music involves playing an instrument or training your voice to carry a tune.
Rappers pay some anonymous shmuck to prerecord a beat with an electronic keyboard (that could be considered talent I guess) and them spend 3 minutes mumbling incoherently about "Poppin bub in da club" or "wearing yo grand dad's clothes"
I may not like country music, but I can at least respect it since Garth Brooks and Patsy Cline are actually singing and spent the time and effort learn guitar.

And don't even get me started on autotune.

Are drummers musicians? Is a drum solo "music"?

 

Given that most drums in a basic kit are unpitched instrument, simply performing at a set rhythm...drumming is music and drummers are musicians. Therefore, verse performed at a set rhythm is also music...and the performers of such are also musician.

 

To argue otherwise is to simply redefine music expressly for the purpose of excluding something that just happens not to fit one's own personal tastes.

 

Also...you brought up Chester by name on your own. He's a singer, duh.  Mike and Chester are not the entire band. There are members of the band that perform live bass, guitar, keys, percussion, etc. (actually including both Chester and Mike).

 

 

Again, if you don't like what they do, that's fine, but the argument that it's not real music is wiggity wiggity wiggity whack.

Basically modern music as we know it straight up stole EVERYTHING from more talented black musicians. So many classics are just absolutely stolen. I'm betting you think Led Zeppelin were musicians? Whole Lotta Love - stolen from Willie Dixon, slightly rearranged, used without credit. I consider Bob Dylan the greatest lyricist of all time - the man stole more melodies than I could even begin to count. Like we could have an entire thread just on that.

 

So I've got to stand up and support rap music being music because it takes incredible skill to takes samples and develop them into a song. Takes incredible skill to rap at an elite level like Wu Tang does. DJ equipment is legit music - if I have to accept that a fucking Mellotron is a damned instrument than so is a turntable, And since in the modern age of music people get paid for all of those samples who cares. Muddy Waters sure wishes he got paid everytime some one ripped him off in the 60's & 70's.

 

Linkin Park I won't say much about because I don't enjoy their music or that style - but I'll damn sure concede the band are musicians who make music. Just like Ghostface & company.

 

I'll just leave the rest because every artist has cringeworthy lyrics if you take them out of context and singling out just the black folk for it makes me feel dirty. Previously mentioned Dylan once said the prophetic line "wiggle, wiggle, wiggle all dressed in green." He also wrote Gates of Eden, so...

 

And you know what I'll go there - I can't say this about Black Sabbath but Ozzy Osbourne wishes he had ever made an album as good as Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

This is a terrible place to have this conversation, but modern music also owes heavily to Southern American white-people music that's mostly derived from old Scottish/Celtic stuff. There's no denying how much of it comes from the culture of American black people (and let's face it, that means "slaves") but the cartoon of "rock music is just white people playing black people music" is way too simple a history for anything that comes from this country.
