Hey there Carmichael! I hear chiropractors are doing brisk business since the pandemic began; treating everyone working from home who doesn't have ergonomic seating/computing set-ups, heh.

Question to the auto-tune haters: is a vocoded voice more, or less, tolerable than autotuned voice?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm ⓘⓚⓔ:

My chiropractor definitely seems to be getting more biz. And now -- watch out, I'm about to continue my major TMI streak in this comments section -- I need to ask a medical professional about a possible hernia. I'm, uh, asking for a friend, of course. A friend in Canada. Who definitely totally exists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Handy Haversack:

He was on Ken's show, Ken, but seemed to be having some internet troubles.

βrian, how do you make your tofu chewy and savory?
Avatar 12:46pm Really Lisa:

Down vote to all voice altering, here. Except SM Ken's devil dj voice shenanigans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Carmichael:

I have no issue with vocoders. They sound more like a church organ or synth. Autotune is just annoying to me, like "Hey, look at the neat electronic trick I can do!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Handy Haversack:

I had one when I was eight, Ike. My dad thought it was the height of comedy to call me Little Three Balls until that was resolved.

I've made some rather spicy guacemole. I need a beer.........
Good, I've got a beer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm ɨkɛ:

I wonder if it's due to poor home ergonomics. As in, my friend probably ordered the wrong Aeron-knockoff chair for his home office and then spent 12 hours a day sitting in it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm David (in London):

I'm in the pro-coder camp.
Avatar 12:49pm Mary Wing:

Hi Ike, what a bummer for your friend! Is it possible to get a hernia from sitting though? I thought it was caused from lifting heavy things?
Avatar 12:50pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

same, vocoder ok, autotune not ok

no they don't. it's underlying cause is nutritional; then a stress that is too much. (like lifting heavy boxes or pushing cars)

Hmmm, my Canadian friend is going to ask his medical professional in an hour or two, so maybe we'll find out! Meanwhile, in other groin/backside-related news, following up on previous comments, the water at Chez Ike has gotten very cold lately! Yikes! I hope this is just a temporary winter-related issue....
Avatar 12:54pm Mary Wing:

Cher's song "Believe" is one of the first to use autotune, I think.

i like Cher's use of it because it was first innovative and also it was treated as a novelty. most of the time i won't tolerate it.
aurally it sucks but also it's a bit of an insult.

i had surgery for a hernia (inguinal - abdominal wall) on the left when i was 17. pushing cars out of snow for dollars was the trigger.
when it happened on the right 10-12 years later i cured it nutritionally and with exercises.

OH YUCK, David in London! I sure hope it's not called "The Roseland" and now I will have to go look the next time I'm in that neighborhood.

Hyena Club?
(I really ought to find my reading specs)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12pm Handy Haversack:

Hubig, I was complaining to my dr. about how annoying it was to have health complaints after *giving up years ago* such vices as smoking and meat eating. I said something along the lines of, "And I'm definitely not about to give up booze, even if it *would* get any results!" and she nodded fervently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm coelacanth∅:

Hubig probably not - although most doctors don't knw shit about nutrition or preventative medicine.
one thing i thought curious when i was living with my 2nd one is that the days after i drank rum my hernia was not evident. i looked into it and found that sugar cane, the source of rum, contains lots of manganese. the nutritional cure was partially blackstrap molasses. (sugar cane)
  1:13pm wenzo llc.:

@David sounds popular, even addictive
Avatar 1:13pm Mary Wing:

Well, wenzo, the real issue is that I pre-recorded this show, and actually *listened* to the mic breaks already, and didn't hear the mispronunciation when I could have corrected it before submitting the show for air, duh!
  1:15pm wenzo llc.:

@mary wing at least you didn't say Shamus instead of Shaman
Avatar 1:15pm Really Lisa:

Real question for anyone renting living space: If you know your kitchen's wall of cabinets is back-to-back with someone else's, would you take care not to slam the doors? It's not as critical as hernia talk, but jeebus, it's making me loony.
  1:17pm wenzo llc.:

@coel, ever tried date molasses? dunno if it's got manganese but it's very tasty
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm Handy Haversack:

Lisa, I never slam cabinet doors because I don't like cleaning up broken glass. *Kate* has a different philosophy, her family being members of the Smasher sect from way back.
Avatar 1:18pm Mary Wing:

I simply cannot understand why anyone needs to slam ANY FUCKING DOOR anywhere on the planet, Lisa, so I feel your pain.
  1:18pm wenzo llc.:

@really lisa Id wait till they go out, drill a hole in the back of my cabinets & see if they have any good snacks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19pm coelacanth∅:

some people just slam things.
they don't care enough about anyone besides themselves to think about that.
Avatar 1:19pm Mary Wing:

My downstairs neighbor, who is a lovely woman, i will say, tends to let the toilet lid drop down with a THUD. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm coelacanth∅:

wenzo that's got to be good! i don't know about manganese but it must have a ton of potassium

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Well Stanley, at least you still have Ritz crackers post-Brexit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Stanley:

Phillippe - what we have chez nous is the balanced bottle/jar top technique of putting the lid back on, ready for the unsuspecting chump (me) to pick it up only to let it fall where and how it may.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Handy Haversack:

Can I also say that while I was glad that (secularly) decorating a tree and having it light up the cats for the past couple of weeks made Kate happy, I am SO JAZZED to have the full extent of our (already small) front room back. It's like working in Montana in here now! See you in hell, fraser fir!

Thank you, Mary and all! This is me, talking toward the wall, asking WHY! But not loud enough for her to hear me. I'm a doormat.
I've reacted a few times over the weeks, with a retaliatory slam, then feel awful about it.
Thanks for the chance to rant. ✌

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Phillippe Bastille:

@coel I recently saw a video (or maybe commercial?) where the parents went and visited one of their offspring in their new home and went around the house dropping their coats, opening cabinet doors and leaving them open, leaving dirty dishes on the counter, then waving bye and leaving. It's my dream. My oldest settles on his first house on Friday, and it'll be hard to not reenact that video.

@stanley I feel your pain.

I replaced my toilet lid/seat a couple years ago and for a couple bucks extra, went for one with a springy hinge that falls down slowly with no slams. Works great!

@coel I still remember a large number of years ago when several of us were sitting in a burger joint and discussing the effects of livestock methane on the ozone layer. One guy said he thought it was a bunch of bullshit and sat back and started grinning. It took a bit for us to get the joke.

Baked tofu has a great texture - I get it already baked and seasoned from the Trader Joe and other places.

Two inguinal hernias here - one when I was 9 from pulling another kid around in a wagon, the other years later from reasons unknown. Have been told I have poor connective tissue but would be interested in nutritional repair.

When I was a kid I was in the hospital for several days, now it's outpatient and they keep you awake so you can cough and stuff! Sounded barbaric but it was fine.

Handy, my doctor told me that people who drink two drinks a day live longer than people who drink one drink a day. So it is written, so it shall be done.

Lizzie, if you're still here
initially:
1 tablespoonful blackstrap molasses in a cup of warm water with freshly squeezed lemon juice. i forget how much was recommended at first. ultimately i just squeezed some in, maybe 1/3 of a lemon's worth.
did this morning and evening. after a few years i grew to hate it (i liked it first) and started taking manganese supplements. once/day. kal makes a good one.
also i did inverted sit-ups, or slantboard sit-ups.
made sure to not overeat. made sure to never be blocked-up in my intestines.
