Response - Hmm, I didn't know the classic composers had periods, odd with them being males and all. Would explain why they dressed like trannies though

The more a person focuses on the importance which period another composer came from, the more you can bet that person will basically have a period if you dare to say anything historically wrong in his presence. :-D

Jan 29, 2009 - Is music merely mathematics?

Response - Yes..... at least digital music is :D

Jan 13, 2009 - Is our perception of reality real?

Response - Yes, and for those of you that don't think so do this experiment: Go to the nearest highway, stand in the middle of it. Use your "perception" to determine when you should be hit, if perception is fake you will not be pulverized

Response - I'm not sure which city is the best to live in..... have heard Rio in brazil is great to party in though.

And the smell of last Tuesday's tuna fish sandwich.

Dec 16, 2008 - Is copying/pirating music okay?

Response - Imo sharing with friends is allright, however putting up a server dedicated to "sharing" (pirated) music is not as innocent.
No matter where you live, cd's have a sort of high price tag to buy if you listen to alot of music and need stuff like food and housing too, chances are you cant afford it.

Dec 14, 2008 - Is the music industry guilty for destroying the true meaning of music?

Response - No, it is guilty for making all music you hear on the radio sound alike though and thus limited peoples apparent choice of music.

Dec 13, 2008 - Did U.S. President George Walker Bush do anything right during his terms as president? If so what?

Response - He made the rich richer, but then felt bad and collapsed the economy to take it away again. Oh, and he also removed most of that pesky freedom that would only make people hurt themselves. [/sarcasm]

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

Secrets in the Fields: The Science and Mysticism of Crop Circles by Freddy Silva. if you have not read it...you should. it's quite interesting. among other things, it talks about how some crop circle patterns represent 4 dimentional objects, while others seem to hold hidden messages (mathmatically)

No, but checked it out after you mentioned it.... SWEET. however, the julia set circle is even more amazing :S http://www.phils.com.au/crop3.gif

have you seen the crop circle that is in the EXACT shape and proportions to the Madnelbrot set? it's pretty sweet.

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

Response - While we music makers might think it isn't reliable it gives listeners that stumble upon the site something to check out. Lets be fair, if you just arrive at a site, and you see 10000 songs with good ratings, chances are he'll get overwhelmed and leave.
Also in the pop world, there is ALOT of music out there, a top 100 list is a quality stamp of sorts that may help you narrow down your choices.

I never said that that made it good music, just that it isn't bad. Popular music is usually popular for a reason, its safe music for just about anybody. If you want amazing music you are usually doomed to look for it yourself.

Posted on Dec 09 2008

But then you'd need charts broken down by genre so disco, glam-rock, and bluegrass fans are given the same convenience. Otherwise, only the most popular songs and genres are represented, and popular doesn't by default equal good.

Posted on Dec 09 2008
by Tyr

But sticking to the charts prevents you from accidentally buying a horrible circus theme album. Sticking to charts is "safe" if you don't want to waste time looking for music. Good for grandmothers and people that don't have the time/interest to choose their music theirselves

Quality? I'd rather call it "quantity", one letter difference, but alas nothing to do with each other. And even quantity is open for discussion.

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

Response - Either one or both. Some are impressed with laser shows and guys in costumes, some are impressed with music. Personally I'd like to hear some talent.

Dec 05, 2008 - Which is more important: Music or Books?

Response - Well, if it wasn't for books we'd pretty much be in the stone age right now. We could have a great musical culture but we'd still just be cavemen or dark age serfs.
I have to say books....

Dec 04, 2008 - If you could go back in time and witness one event, what would it be?

Response - Big bang sounds interesting (not the porno although that sounds cool too), however I have to say I'd like to see what caused it. One theory says that the world will end in big bangs opposite, "big crunch" and if that happens, then big bangs/big crunches might actually happen with some frequency, that is, new univeses form every time one is destroyed.

Dec 03, 2008 - Which animal sound represents you and why?

Response - Wierd question :S. Whales humping, why becouse it sounds like red octobers engines.

Dec 02, 2008 - What is the nature of Knowledge?

Response - Knowledge is defined as expertise, and skills acquired by a person through experience and/or education.
Therefore, one could say knowledge is a byproduct of living.
Nature of knowledge, however vague that statement is might be , might then be a tool devised in our evolving line of ancestors that just happened to help us find food/mate/not touch the stove twice if you burned yourself the first time.
Crappy answer innit

Dec 01, 2008 - If a band rocks out in a forest, and there’s no one there to hear them, do they make a sound?

Response - Yes, definately. Saying the opposite would mean that the laws of physics only work if you are around.

Hmm, so do I. *nudges mysterium* // What I was getting at was that physics often runs counter to our natural intuition, because we filter reality.

Of course, you then have to ask yourself if what we *perceive* to be laws, are, in fact, so. After all, we perceive the world to be an essentially three-dimensional space, moving through time. But in superstring theory, the universe is eleven-dimensional, with the eight extra dimensions 'wrapped around' in such a small space (around the Planck length), that we don't perceive them. Now that's counter-intuitive, but it's something that's considered by many to be closer to the *true* reality than w

I've always wondered about these kinds of so-called philosophical questions, too.

Nov 30, 2008 - Why does music exist?

Response - I suppose I could say it exists as a result of listening to nature make "ambient" music for a billion years, listening to birds communicate can be interesting, they have one "melody" for attracting a mate, another for danger and so on. I suppose that learning how to read into those could have helped the pre-human survive in the wild. Why they suddenly started to think they were beautiful I have no idea though

Nov 29, 2008 - What's the best romance song?

Response - I have to agree with orkabot on this one, fucking her gently with tenacious d :), me and a friend once sung it with a guitar at a festival here and both got lucky :D (not a part of the festival program of course)
no comments
Nov 28, 2008 - Which music composer, singer or band living or dead would you spend the day with and what would you do?

Response - Beethoven I guess. An amazing composer. Coffee, brandy and cigars along with a good talk about song structure. Too bad my German isn't all that

Nov 26, 2008 - What song should be played during Obama's inauguration ceremony?

Response - I think they should save money on fancy music playing at ceremonies and get finance and health care in order.....
no comments
Nov 25, 2008 - What can music do to help the world financial crisis?

Response - Well, I doubt music will play a large part in that. The possible scenarios where music may play part is:
A) Music will help those people through the hard times. (help ease the pain of losing your house)
B) Music will be played while some person will come up with the plan to solve the financial crisis (inspiration)

Nov 24, 2008 - Is artistic genius purely genetic or can it be taught? What is the best way to identify geniuses early and help them unlock their potential?

Response - Artistic genius is partly genetic, partly taught and partly related to the amount of interest you have in music in the first place, (I don't think many music masterpieces were written with the hate of music in mind).
Genetics, (born) deaf people are unlikely to become musicians, and blind people are not the best painters, if your perception is particularly good/bad it will affect an art that relies on that sense I think.
But honestly, I think good old hard work is the major contibuter to artistic skills.

Nov 23, 2008 - Who or What is the scariest movie villain?

Response - Any of the teletubbies, they are taking so much acid they should scare the hell out of anyone :S
no comments
Nov 22, 2008 - Why do people listen to music?

Response - Perhaps somewhere in our world history some forefather of ours used sound for "emotion" communication, sound that described different emotions based on tone/octave. The mandarin chinese have 4 meanings for every word, based on rising pitch, dropping pitch and 2 other things I don't remember.
Nowdays the languages I know have a slight tonal and rythmic elements, small change in it can turn the meaning of sincere sentance into a sarcastic one for example.
Of course, in the end I have to say I just dont know "why" exactly we listen to music :)
no comments
Nov 21, 2008 - What genre(s) of music should be forbidden and why?

Response - Hiphop or rnb, preferably both. They have vocals, but no material. Al hip hop songs are about ridiculous looking gangstas singing about how much money they have, and rnb is about a girl or a man.
no comments
Nov 20, 2008 - Which object, totally not meant for making music, would you like to try as a music instrument?

Response - Explosives..... timed to make a cool rythm. "Boom, pwak,pwack, boom pop"
If the instrument in question is supposed to be reuseable, I'd choose the iron ropes on those hangbridges, play them with a specially fittet chaisaw which would be like the bow for a violin :O

Nov 19, 2008 - What drugs do the best musicians abuse the most and why?

Response - Well, the most famous ones seem to like heroin (rolling stones and aerosmith), crack seems to do wonders for Amy Winehouse, maybe that is THE music drug, but honestly I think both of those will make you burn out pretty fast. I have heard of many that use amphetamines and weed, and that is supposedly great for inspiration, perhaps I am not a great musician since I only abuse coffee during productions :)
Anyhow, I do think that while the "stars" abuse drugs like there is no tomorrow, maybe the producers don't, of course we don't hear about their drug abuses, since they are more in the background.

Nov 18, 2008 - Which music instrument would you identify yourself with to impress a member of the opposite sex?

Response - Some kind of a keyboard based instrument, only thing I know how to use (well, the flute too, but flutes arn't considered hot now, are they)
no comments
Nov 17, 2008 - What music style will be the next "big" thing to change music in the same Nirvana did?

Response - Well, amazingly many dj's are playing dubstep and nu-electro nowdays, but that's not living room music though.
I'm just not sure, but I'm pretty sure it involves electronic music + vocals though.

Nov 16, 2008 - If God asked you, on the day you died and stood before him, to pick one popular song that you think represented your entire life on Earth the best, what would that song be?

Response - No one song would suffice, so many movements and events. I think I would have to choose a symphony, but since I don't listen to entire symponies, I guess I'll have to go with a song remixed from some songs I have no idea who are by Dj Shadow, Midnight in a perfect world
no comments
Nov 15, 2008 - What is the worst thing to have happened to music (event or a person). Why?

Response - Remixes that are basically voiceovers over old tracks, some rapper takes a 10-30 year old hit, adds a few beats and leaves the song unchanged exept he says his name "puff daddy in the house" "yeah, yeah". It gives remixing a bad name

Nov 13, 2008 - If Beethoven/Bach/Ravel/[Insert Famous Composer Here] were alive today, would they still write 'classical' music? If not, what would they be doing?

Response - Well, Beethoven would still be deaf I suppose so he would not be in any danger of hearing anything new :P
But, those guys were "sorta" the experimental dudes of the time (of course, they were great experimental dudes), I bet they would go into electronic music and try and dicover the wonders

Nov 12, 2008 - Pick any Star Wars character. What real life band would that character most likely want to join and what role/position would they have in it?

Response - Chewbacka in almost any heavy metal band, hairy, can't understand what he is saying and looks like he doesn't do hygene. Any role in the band would be fine, but singer would be my choice "wooooooooohhhhhhhh"

edit: wtf, 3 Chewbacka's in a row :O

Nov 11, 2008 - Are DJs artists? Defend yourself.

Response - They can be, yes and no. Some of them are easily replaced with winamp with fade in fade out function enabled (in which case winamp would be an artist too).
Some of them however use perfect eqing and beatmatching for two seemingly unsyncable songs on the fly and can make a dancefloor go wild.
The problem with dj's is that many ppl seem to think they make all their songs, which is very very rarely the case........
