More jokes from the patent office! Grin

Via Sarah Burstein and the Design Law Blog, we discovered that just this week the US Patent Office granted a design patent... on a toothpick:

I do like the "remember my preference" bit. That's just icing on the cake!

On baritone guitars:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baritone_guitar

Quote
Metal bands started using baritone guitars in the late 1980s, as it became increasingly popular to "down-tune" or "drop-tune". Early examples include Carcass (using B Standard) and Bolt Thrower (Using A Standard on Realms of Chaos). Pat O'Brien of the band Cannibal Corpse has a baritone guitar to allow him to use the tuning G# without experiencing tuning problems because of his use of a Floyd Rose Tremolo.Dylan Carlson of drone metal band Earth played a baritone guitar on Hex (Or Printing in the Infernal Method). Machine Head also uses baritone guitars tuned to Drop B and C# standard (tuned 40 cents sharp). Robb Flynn, singer and guitarist from the band also has a signature Epiphone Baritone Flying V called "Love Death".

FWIW - I will NEVER use a Floyd again. They're just crap. I hate them. Got one now, and still hating it. I just don't like them - they decay like milk on a hot day. F that.

But I never thought about a guitar that way. I just thought of them as they were. (I grew up with different tunings.) I've done down-tunings, but never thought of "baritone". Then there were the 7-string Ibanez guitars too. Take Korn for example. Great stuff. Heavy low strings.

This is a great tune that shows that low thumping:

NSFW or NSFL!!!!

More Korn with that low thump (SFW):

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAWjsVoDpm0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAWjsVoDpm0</a>

This is a tune that would really have benefited from lower tunings or a 7th string:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SCzzZT2qH8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SCzzZT2qH8</a>

I think a lot of metal could really benefit from those low notes more.

For example, can you see Angel of Death dropped a fifth for the main riff and that signature riff?

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6_zsJ8KPP0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6_zsJ8KPP0</a>

How much heavier would the heaviest tune of all time be?

And yeah, I like cello more than violin. smiley

It's an image.  That trick was pulled a few pages back, also.

Ah... got it. I knew that it was an image, but figured it was just posted in the wrong place and took it seriously.

This file is reduced by 6 dB. So, it's significantly quieter. I kept it as an MP3. Not sure if it will be quiet enough, and I'd still recommend reducing volume in the mix instead.

You're doing everything wrong.

You want to go from MP3 to WAV and do everything there, then mix it in with anything else that you need to mix with and reduce the volume then. Not before. Not after.

If you go MP3 > WAV > MP3 > mix > MP3 you will have audio degradation that you can avoid.

The fewer steps, the better, unless you are purely dealing in a lossless format like WAV or FLAC. I wouldn't recommend ALAC or RIFF.

But, then again, you probably don't need the best audio quality you can get either. Good enough is enough a lot of the time. smiley

My software does it (mostly). Send me the file and I'll get it back to you looped for 3 min exactlly.

What you're asking for can only be done in looping software or a DAW.

Some good examples of software that is well suited are:

  • Fruity Loops
  • Saw Studio
  • Samplitude
  • etc.

For the volume reduction, that's a bad question. You need to know where it will be mixed, and the best thing to do is to mix it in there with the volume reduced.

^ Are you bored?  Grin  That was a lot of work for a punchline!  Grin

Hehehe! I had a couple minutes, and it's an idea that I've been throwing around for a fun NANY project. (A program to do funky things with BBCode to decorate posts and just do cool stuff that would otherwise take way too much effort.

Formatted for C# with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1.        private void txtOriginal_MouseUp(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
  2.        {
  3.            int start = txtOriginal.SelectionStart;
  4.            int end = txtOriginal.SelectionStart + txtOriginal.SelectionLength + txtLeftSurround.TextLength;
  5.            string s = txtOriginal.Text;
  6.            s = s.Insert(start, txtLeftSurround.Text);
  7.            s = s.Insert(end, txtRightSurround.Text);
  8.            txtOriginal.Text = s;
  9.        }
  10.  
  11.        private void btnPaste_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  12.        {
  13.            txtOriginal.Text = Clipboard.GetText();
  14.        }

  17.        {
  18.            Clipboard.SetText(txtOriginal.Text);
  19.        }

That was a lot easier than actually doing it manually.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to notice that draino isn't a clear liquid. Not to mention that this thing was effectively in the middle of no where at that time of day. No this was a typically spastic hyper-over-reaction that is so idiotically common in our society today. Litter bugs aren't terrorists ... They're just really annoying.

...

Clear liquids don't tent to imply an impending (BLEVE) energetic reaction. First cop on the scene should have just kicked it over and tossed it in the trash.

Hmmm... Let me see...


If we dig down a bit deeper into SJ's post, I think we can find a hidden message...

"Academy of Ideas" is an interesting channel. I've not seen all of them, but the ones I have seen have been good summaries of philosophers and the like. The "Frédéric Bastiat - The Law" video is really good.

On the downside, there's quite a bit of Nietzsche in there, and while I enjoy reading Nietzsche for giggles, his philosophy is a waste unless you're hell-bent on becoming the evilest, most psychopathic monster you possibly can be.

But, still more good topics in there.

COPYRIGHT APOCALYPSE: TROLLS ATTACK THE NET, FROM THE FUTURE

Imagine an Internet in which every possible creative work uploaded results in a copyright claim - because it's already been created. That's the nightmare scenario being painted by a Russian company which says it has a plan to use copyright and trolling to free humans from ever having to create digital content again.

...

That’s the staggering notion being put forward by Qentis Corporation. The outfit, which claims a base in Russia, says that its business model is to use massive computing power to generate digital intellectual property on a never-seen-before scale and transfer the rights to its partners.

...

What Qentis are proposing is the bulk algorithmic creation of content – music, text, images etc – on such a large scale that in a few years its clients will own the rights to just about anything people might care to create and upload.

...

In terms of graphics, Qentis promotional material states that a subsidiary has already generated 3.23% of “all possible images” in the 1000×800 pixel format.
