Does anyone on the forums know him IRL? (IE can reach out to him in person to confirm he's at least alright?)

Hope he's alive and well and just taking a break from the watmmz....

Bologna can also be spelled "baloney" or "boloney" or "balony" but not "bolony".  Language is so stupid.

I started on Cuphead again and I have relearned what frustration is.

I'm spending less and less time on YouTube lately. Whereas last year and the year before it sapped countless hours out of my life. I reckon it's for the best.

I just realized today that a tambourine Man could never play a song for anyone. It is impossible to play a song on a tambourine

A tambourine player should be a part of any grindcore band.

If I ever have kids, I'm going to name one of them Doctor so they can get some respect around the playground.

Apparently I'm absolute shit at striking up conversation with random chicks at social events. Then again, I always have been.

There's three bassy sounds in this track I'm working on: 2 contra bass tracks + 1 pitched tom, all acoustic samples.  I just discovered quite by accident that when I combine them to form a major triad, a harmonic one octave below the root note appears which is VERY prominent and sounds amazing.  It's actually pretty spooky, as the note does note exist anywhere unless you put the 3 together.  Really weird/fascinating.

 

The pointlessness of this observation is debatable.  I'll make my next one extra pointless to compensate.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undertone_series
If a monochord string is lightly damped at the halfway point, then at 1/3, then 1/4, 1/5, etc., then the string will produce the overtone series, which includes the major triad. If instead, the length of the string is doubled in the opposite ratios, the undertones series is produced...

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intermodulation
In music, for instance, IMD is intentionally applied to electric guitars using overdriven amplifiers or effects pedals to produce new tones at subharmonics of the tones being played on the instrument. See Power chord#Analysis.

 

sorry if i'm being too pedantic, maybe u already know most of this...

working on a theater repeating the same stand up acts over and over really takes all the fun from the acts themselves and you kinda get disappointed at the comedians cause you get to understand that there's no spontaneity whatsoever, even if it looks like there is...

I've been living in California so long that when I see people smoking cigarettes in a movie, I assume they're joints.

I should quit smoking tobacco, it really is the stupidest thing ever. My mind is already all for the idea, but body keeps craving. So every morning is like:

mind: wow, so fresh, really nice
body: *under breath* roll a cigarette
mind: nah, I don't need it
*two hours later*
body: you think you can get away with this? Roll it!
mind: shut up, you don't need it.
body: but I do! Right now.
mind: nah, you're fine.
*an hour later*
body: you know why I'm here
mind: shut up
*half hour later*
body: oh c'mon, it's really nothing. You've done some work, Mind, you deserve it. And you know it feels good for you too.
mind: well...
body: just roll it
mind: you know, if I just ignore you, eventually you will shut up, I have that kind of power...
body: TOBACCO
mind: ...
body: TOBACCO
*ten minutes later*
mind: *occupied*
body: *hands a 50 euro bill to the muscle memory*

I finally encountered what's popularly referred to as a "neck beard".  I was delivering a Subway footlong to the gentleman in question, who indeed had a lush beard which covered only his neck.  He also had a wispy moustache, strikingly incongruent with the fullness of the hair upon his neck.  He lived in a basement suite too, just like the meme said he would.  Anyway, he seemed like a very nice person.

Second half of Aerosmith's Night in the Ruts album is basically Led Zeppelin.  

Also, just noticed a squashed dead fly that's stuck to the top corner, bottom half of my lap top that's presumably been there all morning.
