Re: Songs you should listen to

That was actually quite interesting to watch. Although I'm not that big a fan of electronic music, I quite enjoyed seeing part of how it's made. I'm curious as to what his left hand was doing for much of the time. Is that a pitch-shifter he's using? Seemed to get the same effect as a tremolo arm on...

Re: The near-term future of the Republican Party

Nothing about the founding of America was patterned after or even consistent with Christianity. The only reason people try to imply that is because the way visitors worked out most of the founders were born into some version of Christianity or another. This isn't the point. I said I disagreed with ...

Re: Windows 10

Microsoft desperately wants people to move on from Windows 7 and are willing to give free upgrades to do so. Why? Among other reasons, they don't want it to become another "Windows XP". You get a lot of folks really happy with a particular version of an OS and they'll have to be dragged kicking and...

Re: Songs you should listen to

I'm a pretty big fan of Ronald Jenkees. He's recently produced a new song, Try the Bass. It's a bit meandering, but lots of fun, especially if you're into electronic music in general.

Re: The near-term future of the Republican Party

It would help enormously if those principles were something other than, "Well, my religion says so." The same people who so obnoxiously insist that the citizens and government of the United States should operate according to their church's interpretation of Christianity will instantly go red in the...

Well, of course, anyway, first off, okay, yeah. I'll say just about anything to postpone the starting of a useful sentence for a word or two. That said, I've been trying to catch mys- dammit!

Re: Entertaining Rants and Raves

Rail shooter? Nothing like that! Imagine a game in which you are simultaneously an architect, an adventurer, an explorer, and some sort of odd cubicle man. You are placed in a massive wilderness with nothing but your blocky body and the materials in your environment. You are asked to survive - nay, ...

Personally, I prefer just to lie for the sake of lying. You should try it some time. All the cool kids are doing it.

Re: 67th Anniversary of D-Day

Yeah, but you're annoying as hell and nobody complains - well, crap. Carry on.

(You know, I've noticed a pattern in that I only seem to respond to CS22 much lately. I'm becoming worried I'm enamored of you, sir.)

Re: Just throwing that out there

"I was hacked" has got to be the stupidest lie I have ever heard. Isn't that what everyone says when they say something embarrassing on Facebook? I don't have the details of this, so I'm pretty much going off of what you've written here - Facebook profiles being "hacked" is actually a fairly common...

Re: The Pet Peeve Thread.

No, you don't. If you really did, you would have told me when I asked you out in the first place. You really don't have to lie about it - just tell me you aren't interested when I ask. For one, the conversation will be less awkward and annoying, while ending sooner. Or just lie right off the bat. S...
