I really know nada about coffee, being a Ten Ren loose-leaf tea guy. @RTD, does good Ethiopian restaurants & groceries in D.C. also mean good Ethiopian java beans? Do they have a hint of injera and/or a whisper of sauteed collards?

True, Cecile: It could be placebo nonsense, but there seems to be a huge difference with just filtering DC tap water vs. straight. The beans are worth it. They died so that we might live.

Trader Joe's has the best placebos. They're cheap and they work better than any other brand.

Dean:

It's all in your head, Claw!

Dean, you joke, but I was involved in setting up a clinical trial of a dietary supplement, and it was hard to get the placebo & product to match in appearance.

  4:12pm
Dean:

Robert, that seems totally plausible. As a layman, I find the whole concept of placebos fascinating. The term "placebo" tends to the layman to mean "ineffective" (as in, "It was just a placebo."), but of course that's the very question under investigation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm
DCE:

@ Robert, I noticed that too about that first track
Avatar 4:13pm
Chris from DC:

And of course we know the ones that mother gives you don't do anything at all.
  4:14pm
Dean:

Just imagine that all those '60s psychedelic bands were in fact inspired by placebos.
  4:18pm
Robert:

Well, it wouldn't've been that hard had the sponsor not changed the product from a pill to a capsule. The contents were different-colored powders, and you could see them thru the capsule wall. And that was after they'd gone to some previous trouble to get a slightly mottled-shell pill made to match their one-off production run!
  4:21pm
Robert:

Whew, DCE, I thought nobody else noticed music similarities I did! Lately I've been trying to get others to acknowledge a similarity--not in melody, but other ways--between "Promises" by Barreracudas & "You May Think I'm Crazy" by the Cars. I think they deliberately tried to evoke it as a pastiche, an inside joke, whatever.

And if you think it's hard for me to get others to notice "echoes" in MUSIC I hear, you should see the trouble I have convincing others that "Lost" was deliberately modeled on some earlier stories that were clues to its real, inapparent, solution.
