Rest in peace, Joe Porcaro. I hope you’re up there jamming with Jeff and Mike.

Re: Rest In Peace

I meant to post this one earlier, US comedy legend Carl Reiner passed away too: https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/01/entertainment/carl-reiner-death-obit/index.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_Year_Old_Man Surprised that one didn’t get more headlines. I grew up watching reruns of the Dick Van Dyke...

Re: Fun (easy) Games for my Google Phone?

If you are on android, check out the f-droid market . Most of it Truly Free(tm) and they warn you when it isn’t. There are some decent games on there. There are a lot of terrible games on there. The problem being it’s up to you to sort them out. Welcome to open source. My kids enjoy https://f-droid....

Re: Cooking

‘round these parts most of the Mexican joints use crema fresca instead of sour cream. I mean, I’m sure Taco Bell and the like use sour cream. But they don’t really count.

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

Congrats Jon Eric!

Strong competition this year, I do not envy the task of the judges. So many fantiastic songs, choosing which to eliminate is an impossible choice.

Great work everyone!

I've gotten plenty of reviews that were harsh, but I don't think I ever got one that was wrong. To me that's part of what makes this a great community.

Re: Song Fight! Is 20 Years Old!!!

Such a great community, so many memories. Went to the SongFight! presents in late 2003 at that weird venue above in an industrial neighborhood near 280 (is my recollection?). I remember Brother Machine rocking the house, and Son of Supercar being so loud they forced half the crowd outside. Epic. Att...

Director Joel Schumacher passed at 80 after a battle with cancer. I remember seeing St. Elmo’s Fire as a teenager in the mid 80s and it made a huge impact on me. The breakup scene where they argue about who gets which albums in particular has stuck with me. NO SPRINGSTEEN IS LEAVING THIS HOUSE. Res...

Re: Rest In Peace

Not sure why it didn’t make the news (OK, I know why it didn’t make the news), but I just read recently that Annie Glenn died last month (COVID). Arguably did more for the American space effort than her husband John and just an incredible advocate for humanity. Rest in peace. https://en.wikipedia.or...

At this rate we're almost in sidefight territory...
I like that idea. Would we all be given the same output and see who can make the best song out of it? Or does each of us get our own uniquely generated output?

Re: Who wants to collab with the the DeepOrb AI?

I have questions. Will the vocal melody be MIDI as well, or will the human provide it? Can the human replace a MIDI instrumental track with one played by a human (maintaining the notes as much as is physically possible on the instrument)? How much song structure should be kept? Is it acceptable for ...

Liner notes. Come watch me make questionable decisions:
I'm addicted to watching your videos now. I hope you're happy.
I have mentioned it on irc, but these videos are probably my favorite part of this nur ein. It is a beautiful window into the creative mind.
