Jun 03, 2009 - If there were a $50 per year donation for TiS, would you contribute to keep the servers paid for? (which is about $200/month)

Response - I'll have to steal everyone else's answer here. I would pay $50 a year to keep the site alive, but only if the operators of the site showed an interest in keeping it alive. As it stands right now, I probably would just cancel my membership if money were required. I don't know of many other places where I can get feedback on my music, but I don't get a lot here, so- sadly- I'm not sure how much of a loss it would be.

Apr 18, 2009 - What band should Guitar Hero use for their next game?

>"learning how to press corresponding buttons in >rhythm." Sadly, that's the gist of it. When you think about it...all these games are ultimately spin-offs of Dance Dance Revolution that way. Not that DDR is bad: it's a great workout. Only...you can't learn how to play music from either one at all. The only problem I see with classical composers, not matter how skilled or worth learning from...is that most kids would get bored of them very quickly and just not play (Wii musi

Yes.... I think it's sad that the games don't at least have a melodic mode so you can learn something from the game.... motzart would be good though

Didn't he want to turn them to gold or something?

Dec 21, 2008 - What is the most memorable event (music related) in your life?

Response - Most memorable? I'm tempted to give the same answer as I did for the question about what the best concert was that I ever went to... but I guess I'll go a different direction. The most memorable for me was probably the first rave I went to where I heard drum 'n' bass- it certainly had the most impact on who I am as a musician (and as a person) to this day.

Dec 20, 2008 - What's the best concert/performance you've ever been to? Why?

Response - I went to see Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and Joni Mitchell at the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington State about 10 years ago. Bob Dylan was the headliner. Joni Mitchell was absolutely awful- she kept stopping in between each song to espouse her political and environmental agendas for ten minutes at a time and people were booing her off the stage. Bob Dylan's performance was mediocre at best- but Van Morrison was absolutely amazing. It was either that concert, or a rave that I went to called Eclipse- I saw Technical Itch and Decoder, and my best friend lost his mind on LSD and forgot who I was. Amazing.

Response - Yes.
no comments
Dec 13, 2008 - Did U.S. President George Walker Bush do anything right during his terms as president? If so what?

Response - I can recall quite a few times when he said things on national television that made him look and sound like a complete ass. That seemed pretty appropriate.

Dec 11, 2008 - Instead of "1, 2, 3... Cheese!", what other phrase or action would you use to get people to pose for photos?

Response - I've found that a gun to the head is usually a fairly convincing method of getting people to do just about anything... but maybe that's just me...

Dec 09, 2008 - Is a Top 100 system like Billboard good for musicians and listeners?

Response - Top 100 systems like Billboard, or things like MTV's top 20 countdown are good for musicians- but only if their primary concern is gaining recognition. I think they are ultimately bad for listeners because most such lists are based on "popularity"... and maybe it's just me, but "popular" rarely seems to coincide with "good"...

Dec 08, 2008 - Are concerts more about show or talent?

Response - Concerts are more about drugs, I think. That's just one American's perspective, though.
