GENERAL DISCUSSION / Re: Musicological banter
« Last post by sweetcell on Today at 07:37:31 pm »




Bronx and Mariachi el Bronx drummer Jorma Vik called out Warped headlining act, Black Veil Brides for using potemkin (i.e. fake) amplifiers during their set

edit...this was from 5 years ago

"We use staging in our stage show. Also these are tattoos, I wasn't born with the batman logo on my arm."

AKA "no shit sherlock".  every band with a wall of speaker cabinets behind them is using them as stage props.  even *if* they are real Marshall cabs, with actual speakers inside them, they aren't plugged in and powered by an amp - but generally they're pure props.  having an wall of actually plugged-in stacks makes no sense technically, musically, logistically nor financially.  this article is the equivalent of "exposing" the lip-syncing of boy-bands or pop-tarts. 

that being said, i shit on this band for not even slapping some black-painted particle board across the back of those fake cabs.  that's just sloppy.  amateurs.

was a little bit redeeming/equalizing that Mandzukic first scored an own goal then later on scored a real goal (and making the goalie look stupid)

The second was also very much an own goal by the keeper but just won't be scored that way....

Absolute none sense! He pressures the goalie into making mistake

I haven't read a Thomas Friedman op-ed from start to finish in a while:

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/16/opinion/trump-and-putin-vs-america.html

"From the beginning of his administration, President Trump has responded to every new bit of evidence from the C.I.A., F.B.I. and N.S.A. that Russia intervened in our last election on his behalf by either attacking Barack Obama or the Democrats for being too lax ó never President Vladimir Putin of Russia for his unprecedented cyberhit on our democratic process. Such behavior by an American president is so perverse, so contrary to American interests and values, that it leads to only one conclusion: Donald Trump is either an asset of Russian intelligence or really enjoys playing one on TV."

Felt like reviewing the genesis of this thread

One one hand, he and almost all of his supporters are the kind of people who are wrong about everything, have no idea what's going on, are mad for no real reason, and aren't interested in learning anything.
On the other hand, it might be fun to have a president that just yells and insults people all the time.
Relaxer called it first here in this thread...only jokingly 
sept 2015...jez those were halcyon days

I do have to disagree on the fun part...it was fun in the election cycle when we thought there was no chance he could win


I know this is the conventional wisdom, but I just cannot see Trump winning the nomination. At some point, he's going to be confronted with questions about what he would actually DO as president. And even if he gets some ghost-written "positions" he's going to have a Perry moment where someone questions him on "his" positions and he'll have no idea. I mean, the guy has zero shame so maybe he can blowhard past that, but at some point, this has to catch up with him. Doesn't it? I mean, he's defied all the laws of politics for months now, but I just cannot see The Establishment allowing him to be the nominee.

And if/when he goes down, who replaces him depends on who's left. Jeb and Rubio seem like the most mainstream options but it feels like Jeb is slowly flaming out and joining Walker and Paul in the LOL category.

 but even as the Primary debates were happening even he didn't think Trump had a chance
 some how nothing stuck, Teflon Don for reals

I guess no one factored the Russian meddling...

Can we just change the name of this topic to "Maybe we should just elect Putin President" and be done with it?

Others across the country are also raising money for Trump Baby blimps. Areas with campaigns include Silver Spring, Maryland

so I guess this is the Fillmore?

Come on Seth...the blimp would go great in the anthem...let's do this!!

Trump and Republicans are traitors
I don't understand why Republicans would continue to go along with this. What is different about Republicans in 2018 than Republicans in the Nixon era? Do the Russians have compromising information on them as well as Trump?

That is the theory that was floated this weekend by a friend of mine
that during the primaries...senior GOP officials also worked with Russia...but at that time it was to make sure Trump didn't win
but it kinda backfired and they got stuck in the middle of this
but the prints are all over the gun...

Not sure I buy that, but makes sense as they are so willing to go to the mat for him

Why does everything go Putinís way...

Modric was sick
Glad he got the Golden Ball, was one of my favorites to watch this tourney

That was an exciting game, there were few times the Croats were 'this close' to scoring in the last 15 mins

not bad for a team ranked 20th before the cup (although France was ranked 7th...but were a favorite the whole time)

was a little bit redeeming/equalizing that Mandzukic first scored an own goal then later on scored a real goal (and making the goalie look stupid)
