Re: Awesome Music (related) Videos

Is the 9th telegraphed or just gratuitous coloration?



It didn’t feel appropriate to put this on the other thread, but i love this tribute to a hell of a songwriter. Seriously, we’ll miss you Adam.

Re: Rest In Peace

I’d say “rest in peace”, but I don’t think that’s what he’d have wanted. Instead I say peace be with his family and I hope he’s up there with a cocktail and a nine-mile long cigarette, hanging out with his brother and his cousin and his mom’s sisters.

Re: Playing a guitar with compressed air.

That was really cool!

Also, it took me a stupid long time to get the “Air on a G string” joke. I am not a smart man.

Man, this is really sad. Such a great talent to lose so young.

Re: Goodbye Kenny Rogers

The best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep. Rest in peace, Kenny.

I admit to having a soft spot for the movie Six Pack. And I will watch it tomorrow. And I will cry. and that is OK.

While it is strongly believed that e is disjunctive, I don’t believe it has yet been proven.

Re: Song Fight! Live #20 in 2020 for Song Fight! 20th anniversary SF Bay Area

So, the Berkeley venue we used last time has asked us if we would like August 28th and 29th. That's the Friday and Saturday of the last weekend in August. What do y'all think about that? Bad weekend for me, but you should absolutely not count mine as an important vote. It would make me very sad to ...

Re: Backup Planning - what's your scheme?

I always thought it might be neat to dump my projects into git lfs. I often want to start projects on my laptop and continue on my desktop or vice-versa, and it seems like that would be a lot easier to keep track of than my current technique of “rsync shitcircus”. But then again in the absence of a ...

I currently do time machine to an external USB drive, but I don’t like it. I’ve had way too many drive failures. I tried to do time machine over iSCSI to a freebsd machine, but every (I tried a few) OSX initiator was… less than reliable. There must be a better answer, c’mon, it’s 2020, people. Flyin...

Re: Cooking

One of my weeknight go-tos is taco night followed by using up the leftover taco meat in chili. My recipe is more or less the same as JB’s, though I don’t do corn in mine (serve with cornbread instead). I like to do a tablespoon each of dark chili powder, chipoatle chili powder, and smoked paprika, a...

My Christmas gift was Lego so I have spent the week playing with Lego instead of writing a song. :P
