Today jells as a hoppy yet wet experience despite your umbrella, then flames up into an endless parade bridging tail and heads, before rolling over into endless praise and a great leap forward. Vermeer (or his daughter) could not paint a sexier way to wind up behind the woodpile wearing a ring.

My 20 year old niece saw a youtube video a couple of times and now she can solve a Rubik's cube in 1 minute 40 seconds if it's well lubricated, longer if it's not. Silicone spray is supposed to work well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 8:17am Nymor:

I've had a few cubes but the only one I have left that hasn't fallen apart is ~35 years old and still turns beautifully (with no maintenance)

The "pros" just see it but I use a formula/plan - top layer, middle layer, cross on the bottom and then the final bottom corners. It's all muscle memory now and 1-2 minutes is about the norm - although I got some lucky breaks once to do it in 46 secs.

World record is x10 fater than that at an insane 4.22 secs - what!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 9:27am Irwin:

From Wiki:
Bowie's vocal was recorded with a "multi-latch" system devised by Visconti that creatively misused gating. Three microphones were used to capture the vocal, with one microphone nine inches from Bowie, one 20 feet away and one 50 feet away. Each microphone was muted as the next one was triggered. As the music built, Bowie was forced to sing at increased volumes to overcome the gating effect, leading to an increasingly impassioned vocal performance as the song progresses. Jay Hodgson writes, "Bowie's performance thus grows in intensity precisely as ever more ambience infuses his delivery until, by the final verse, he has to shout just to be heard....The more Bowie shouts just to be heard, in fact, the further back in the mix Visconti's multi-latch system pushes his vocal tracks, creating a stark metaphor for the situation of Bowie's doomed lovers".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/1/18 9:28am TDK60:

Everything Is Everything's album was "jazz-rock" before the term "fusion" got coined. // I still listen to some WBAI. Some news shows. And that medieval/Early/classical music show with the English fellow Sunday morns.

Anyone offering guarantied safety is to be ignored, but a limited domain of reasonable expectation of relative safety is part of what civilisation's about and what makes it possible. Fear is, in fact, a mind-killer.

Noöne should go into a classroom expecting only agreement and support, but 'You don' t belong here!, and here's why….',for example, is primate territory-claiming-by-excrement-throwing disguised as argument.

I have some "white van" speakers I bought at a garage sale from the unsuspecting sap who actually bought them from a guys in a white van. If you are going to sell WFMU swag that way you'll have to come up with a convoluted story about how it's worth much more than you are offering it for while still selling it for way more than it is worth. You may be on to a great new fund raising source. We just need folks with white vans to pull it off.
