  1. I'm sure I've posted about this in this thread but: I'm in work/income purgatory. My current gig is nearly unbearable at times and forces me to work odd times at a moments notice. I had to fly to Boston to confirm that someone didn't connect a fucking pipe. I kid you not, they were like 'uhhh no water' and my bosses were like 'uhhhh well just get Blysky on a plane from the other end of the country, not like he has a life'. Any and all glamour or prestige wore off during COVID and it's been just getting worse. I say it's purgatory because I'm stuck with the pay. This gig pays me around 40%+ what I could find right now in any other gig. I'm not willing to take a 40%+ dip in pay after clawing my way into doing this specialty shit. So I'm at the point of wanting to quit, knowing I can't and dreaming that I could. It's also a little shitty to not have the capital to start my own projects. I work for people who have deep pockets and all I do is make them deeper with my skills. In my industry, capital is not easy to come by without massive strings attached. Anyways, enough of that. Hope everyone is having a good day 🙂
  2. Get ahead of it and eat more plastic. There was that one dude who ate an entire airplane piece by piece and he's not dead. All this quitter talk in here is just making up excuses to not do the work of eating your snickers bars with the wrappers ON. Some would say it's the way God intended it if it is indeed the future. Adapt, Improvise, and eat more plastic.
  3. Holding a gun to Zuck's head and screaming DO IIIIIIT Until he deletes all of this mess. Metaverse? For christ sakes just go fuck off to your island and do drugs + live like a king like a sane person would. Rich people are so weird. You won the game. Fuck off and go enjoy the life all of us are missing out on while trying to stay financially afloat. Cunts.
  4. Oh you bet your ass I can make you the most delicious and convoluted cup of coffee ever - but I don't drink coffee or caffeinated beverages these days. I used to roast beans on the side when I was a baker at this cafe forever ago, that shit tapped my inner mental illness and I became OBSESSED. Drank like 6-8 shots of espresso daily, minimum. Kinda burnt myself out on it.
  5. Sorry I'm late and if this was already explained but. Acid precursors of cannabinoids are just the cannabinoid before undergoing decarboxylation. Usually with the most common cannabinoid (THC)- the stuff on your buds is predominantly THCa, by burning it you're decarboxylating it by taking it well above the temp needed to do so and thus making it active. Same reason why people simmer weed butter on low. Sure cannabinoids are highly lipophilic, but THCa isn't gonna do much. You're aiming to convert it to its non acid counterpart. Most common psychoactive cannabis has very, very low levels of minor cannabinoids. Hemp is more what you'd be looking for here. In short, unless one is getting certain chemovars of non-psychoactive hemp and eating raw biomass or doing cryo-extraction + winterization for a cleaner extract - you aren't going to find much CBGa or CBDa in things out on the market. It looks like CBGa is more potent in regards to what the desired outcome of the study would be and it is a relatively minor cannabinoid relative to the amount of breeding work done to steer biosynthetic pathways towards heavy CBD or THC production; though such work does exist on the market. Cell studies are dumb to extrapolate so far too. The study is interesting to note, but not much to write home about
  6. Strong sad-times in life are attached to a few pieces of music. Nanou2 still crushes me. Happy crying is usually reserved for laughter, or intense moments / times with lovers, friends and family. Not much music with that particular release of overwhelming positivity :)
  7. How would you know you were brainwashed if it was an effective brainwash?
  8. I have the 808 clone and find it a bit underwhelming without some post-processing. The snare is stupid quiet and some of the other sounds (claves, cowbell, clap) seem to be much louder at the same volume. Is this what actual 808s are like lol?
  9. I smell toast… who knows, my idiot coworkers post I screen capped here could be interpreted out of context as the ramblings of a deranged hobo -or- is it the bold vision of the future we’re just too old to see?
  10. I swear I can actually speak english. You're going to have to trust me on this one. The fuck happened to the edit function?
  11. Re: the nurse story -- My girlfriend is a cardiac ICU nurse at a super fancy hospital here and can confirm - shits fucked, yo. Older/more experienced nurses are making a mass exodus out of working at hospitals. They're looking for travel nurse work (way higher pay, longer time off/breaks) clinic work (some fancy private clinics pay a ton and are way less stress) or to just retire/move on from nursing. Short staffing, lack of trained PCT's, lack of adequate hazard pay. Hospitals have been getting whomped. This shit has stressed the human part of healthcare so badly and it has to be exhausting on a mental, physical and spiritual level in a way IDK if I can comprehend fully. Small Example: My girl will come home from work and told me about this one sweet older man she had in the hospital a while back that was recovering from open heart surgery that came back in the ICU dying within a month of COVID complications. The guy said to her multiple times about how he was scared to go home because he has nowhere else to go after the surgery but his crazy ass son's place where his entire family are actively not giving a fuck about covid or getting vaccinated or even believing it's real. Sure enough, the entire family caught it and spread it to him as he was fuckin bedridden and recovering. Being immunocompromised after surgery, he was even more at risk. He didn't even get to enjoy the new lease on life because his own goddamn family couldn't care enough to not bring that shit home to their ailing grandfather/father. That def fucked with her. I could not imagine dealing with life and death in my work + getting to know and care about people in a time where nobody gives a fuck about anyone. (sorry for the long post)
  12. NFT’s are what gives me hope thaT my brain stroked out during a whopper acid/mdma combo on New Year’s Eve 2014. every time I smell burnt toast I just know that someone has minted a slack-jawed monkey wearing the zippered clothing from MJ’s ‘Bad’ music video and it sold for 134k in online pedo dubloons is this heaven or did I fuck up somewhere?
  13. my favorite thing about the Jan 6th pathetic display of boomerism was the concessions stand at the 'riot' I can imagine nothing more supremely American than needing to get some chicken tenders and a funnel cake while trying to overthrow your government.
  14. people who use their kids as pawns for their own agenda are a special kind of sick. I’m going to counter this energy by coming in completely nude with a face mask on and saying “why would you want to cover this up” while gesturing at my penis wearing a top hat.
  15. I've been on this site over 10 years. 

     

    Good god.

      My condolences.

      me too bro. I tried to escape for some years but ultimately came back.

  16. lol he's gonna go full African Warlord on the whole deal. Full get-up of: beret, aviators, golden AK-47, while for some reason wearing dress pants and tuxedo shoes + an army of child soldiers. That's the only way I'm going to respect this call for a state funded militia
  17. The only show I've watched in the last two years besides re-watching the sopranos and the simpsons is the great british bakeoff. My GF started putting it on a few weeks ago and I got sucked in. NGL that shit is entertaining as hell. I used to be a baker/pastry chef in my early 20's/late teens so it tickles my brain. Plus Brits are funny. I love when there's someone with just an awful accent. There was a lady from Liverpool who every time she spoke I would just start laughing. The amount of accents you guys have there is wild!
  18. About to wrap up ‘Voltaire’s Bastards: The Dictatorship of Reason in the West’ by John Ralston Saul I’m not the smartest fella out there, but it has been an enlightening read.
  19. I'm far too lazy/incompetent to do all those steps. Someone copy and paste the juice so my tiny brain doesn't stroke out
  20. Huh. Neat. Does it handle pitch bending with regards to whistling or singing? I tried some midi guitar thing and it was clunky but fun. Did not do gliding at all. That's one of the things that seems to be the thing I want to mess with the most sometimes with programming melodies and leads. the input being a voice lets you do so many cool pitch bends and portamento stuff on the fly vs programming it in. I'd imagine thats hard to suss out reliably lol
  21. 65923672071__3D0CC301-43D1-47B9-A6A4-47CF81A90497.heic Drilled through 8" of concrete and plumbed out a new fixture for the attached 'greenhouse'. No more having to bring a hose in through a door and having to deal with outdoor fixtures freezing in the winter. It's not pretty, but it's built well and functional.
  22. Good art should be cranked out in less than a week. All this talk of 'magnum opuses' and 'masterpieces' are bullshit. It should be a cut and dry 2:30 mostly centered around an 808 sample, autotuned vocals about eating ass and random corporate jingles playing every once in a while. All other music is the equivalent to shaking it more than 3 times at the urinal or double dipping a chip in some salsa at a party.
  23. I’d say Syro takes the cake only because of the sheer amount of equipment being controlled and automated + the modern/expensive ass mixing. go plastic is neck and neck. Every time I hear that record I’m shocked it was made with no DAW sequencing. Automating and programming eventide shit like Tom does deserves its own tier lol
