201  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Your favorite cartoons of yesterday and today? on: October 07, 2014, 07:24:45 AM
Most of the ones on this list, I used to watch Cartoons of the 60s

Particularly these: 1-6, 16, 25, 42, 46, 64, 70, 75, 79, 81.  too numerous to mention by name.  I couldn't find the road runner and Wiley e coyote on the list, maybe that was later. 

#5 - Davey and Goliath - isn't a cartoon. It's stop motion. But if we include those, I'd add in Shaun the Sheep as a fun one! cheesy

Oh, and #80 - Fractured Fairy Tales - great stuff!  Thmbsup

#12 on that list (Spider-Man (1967)) is fantastic! The original "we all friggin' dropped acid" show. That was my first exposure to seriously trippy drug-art.  Thmbsup

When I was a kid I dropped anything and everything to watch 'Battle of the Planets'...unfortunately, it doesn't stand the test of time for me. I always liked the Looney Tunes better than Tom &Jerry. Especially Wiley E. Coyote. If there is one cartoon character that will teach you about determination...

Battle of the Planets was a favourite here also.

And Wile E. Coyote - hands down my favourite character from Looney Tunes.

Oh - another good show -- Count Duckula! It does seem to stand the test of time even.

Sorry. That wasn't my intention. It just happened that Tom & Jerry was in the news recently and I thought it was of interest. I've deleted it.

+1 for Archer. Great show.

South Park. Just brilliant stuff. This is hands down my favourite cartoon with nothing else coming close.

So... Now we're calling out the bomb squad for litter bugs
Note: Sadly this completely absurd overreaction is an actual -currently happening - real live event.

We just had a similar incident over an abandoned suitcase full of stuffed animals.

And my daughter's boyfriend just announced that he wants a job on the bomb squad...specifically, the Teddy Ruxpin Disposal Unit.

"So, in other words, some debris fell off a truck. A paranoid motorist called it in. An overreacting police department shuts down a highway during rush hour and calls the bomb squad, causing countless motorist to spend hours sitting in traffic and thousands of dollars of police overtime," the user wrote. "When, they probably could have just kicked whatever it was to the side of the road and call he public works department out to through it out."

And Krev offered in response: "And if it exploded you'd be screeching about how careless the police are."

We should have another poll for companions.  For me it's between Martha Jones and Amy Pond.

That's even harder.

Adric?

K-9?

I really liked Adric and K-9. Adric was a lot of fun. A bit clumsy and all, but smart and a great foil.

Musician Shows How to Sing Two Notes at Once in Mesmerizing Video

in Music | October 6th, 2014

Anna-Maria Hefele, a musician based in Munich, has an unusual talent. She can sing two notes at once. In the music world, it’s known as polyphonic overtone singing, and it’s believed that the practice originated and still endures in Mongolia. Above, Hefele offers a pretty captivating five-minute display of her technique. On her website, she notes that she offers concerts, lecture performances, and workshops in overtone singing. In fact, there’s a workshop being held later this month near Salzburg, Austria. Find updates on Hefele’s Facebook page. Enjoy!

She's pretty amazing! (She's also rather pretty too.  Wink )

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC9Qh709gas" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC9Qh709gas</a>

 Thmbsup

1. HA! Let's see the pitch correction* software deal with that! tongue
2. Bah, that can all be done in the studio and fixed in the mix! tongue
3. Yeah... pretty damn amazing! cheesy

But seriously, that was darn cool.  Thmbsup

I do wish that she would have used words in some places.

From the page:

the video is live, and every human being is able learn overtone singing Wink ....well...not starting directly with polyphonic overtone singing.... but singing overtones on one fundamental isn't too hard.

I would like to see her do a tutorial on how to do it. Just a very basic one. But everyone can do it? Wow. That's a big claim.

(Think parts of Eddie Van Halen's solo in Panama or Somebody Get Me a Doctor for examples of where it does fit.)

+1 for 40hz's analysis.

Panama cued up to a mind bending solo: http://youtu.be/w-NshzYK9y0?t=2m10s

(I never could nail that solo. Everything else was easy and fun, but the solo? Nah. I could never get it right.)

Somebody Get Me a Doctor cued: http://youtu.be/NkJOZOOXJWk?t=1m10s

It's more obvious in Panama though. Somebody Get Me a Doctor is more subtle.

But, there's a reason why Eddie is venerated as a guitar (demi)god.

Art often involves "infanticide". You kill your babies. You work and work and come up with this uber cool riff/phrase/paragraph/plot line/method/UI/whatever, and then you realise that you have to kill it. Because, well, various reasons. That bit was beautiful, and you loved it - it was your baby... and then you realise that it can't see the light of day in the broader canvas that you'll present to the world.

Salt and cumin are great, but pouring an entire package in your meal doesn't work.

I would find it useful. I only use CHS in some specific situations because I find it is slow for me, but that would make it very fast & easy. (An assignable global hotkey for it would make it even faster, e.g. CTRL+SHIFT+1,2,3,4)

How To Protect Yourself Against Ebola

This week saw the first confirmed case of Ebola virus within the United States, the latest development in an outbreak that has already claimed over 3,000 lives. Here are some ways you can protect yourself against this deadly disease:


  • Boil all bodily fluids before consumption.
  • Regularly examine your DNA under an electron microscope for any indication that Ebola has attached itself to your cell membranes.
  • Recognize the symptoms of Ebola, which include fever, chills, and developing symptoms too late to do anything about them.
  • Cover the nose and mouth of Ebola patients when they sneeze to avoid spreading germs.
  • Avoid eating bat soup, which is actually pretty sound advice whether there’s an ongoing Ebola outbreak or not.
  • Ebola can only be spread once patients are symptomatic, so if you believe you’ve been exposed, get all your errands and public trips out of the way before your symptoms start showing.
  • Be sure to stay up to date on developments by signing up for the official CDC phone tree.
  • Try being born one of the 15 percent of rural Gabonese citizens with natural immunity to the virus.
  • Give billions of dollars to pharmaceutical companies.
  • If you see a suspicious-looking filamentous virus particle roughly one micron in length, stay away.
  • Continue following lifelong plan of avoiding Dallas, TX at all costs.

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!!!!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRPxao3e_jY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRPxao3e_jY</a>

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

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.
