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.

I would have been so tempted by that Vox deal if it was available in the UK.
That’s funny. I hate all these regional restrictions in general, but of all things, the Vox deal not being available in the UK. Amusing.

Re: Gear Acquisition Syndrome

Also to Lunkhead & irwin: I have an SG and I don't really like it... :\ but I don't really like Teles either, so you may enjoy the SG more than I do... other than the terrible neck dive mine suffers from (partly due to heavy neck/partly due to terrible strap button placement) even with "weights" in...

I am lusting after the Sequential Pro 3. Three oscillator mono/paraphonic synth with a super cool routing matrix and arpeggiator.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

It seems the best song about chupacabras has already been made. I guess we can all go home.

Seriously, though, that is hard to top.

If you’ve never seen Richard Thompson’s 1000 Years of Popular Music, it’s well worth a listen.

Re: Modern democracy (was: COVID-19 freakout thread)

I live in California. I have voted in every presidential election since 1992 (the first I was of legal age). I cannot recall a single election in which my vote had any bearing on the outcome.

I was going to say _maybe_ Clinton in ’92, but I just looked it up, and nope that wasn’t close either.

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.

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.

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.
