I had 2 uppies, including you, QA, and you still went with a person who only had 1?
@HazelEyedMusician You are mistaken about how the MHO system works. It is dealer's choice, not a democracy of counted votes. I upvote quite liberally to say thank you for a contribution, but I don't care how others vote, I have my preferences, as does everyone. You sound incredibly bitter to be questioning this twice now. I don't even see you on this question. Kuraj is my pick. End of story.
Who the fuck bitches over not getting MHO?
@MAINEVENTMAFlA Ikr? That's a first for me, seeing that. And esp since I've made countless comments, and even written a mytake, about how I don't believe in the automated system. That's not true social media, that's senseless pandering.
An interesting, fragmented, creative list. I like it.
We all have those kinds of thoughts.

"It has a 5/8 drum pattern on top of a 4/4 beat at 0:12, making it very difficult." Ok my brain just melted now. Remember those 'This is your brain on drugs' eggs in the frying pan commercials? Yeah.Yes isn't it weird how we can read words in a book or wherever, yet simultaneously not be thinking about them, so ine one way you did read them, but it's like having a bunch of random objects, unrelated, next to each other. I do that often. Will re-read a sentence like 10x. It is annoying, but I am also fascinated that it works like that. Attention Economy now, right? Most valuable thing we have left."It didn't get rid of the replay though." That's interesting. If it was something trivial, like for me I forget the names of actors I clearly know really well by their filmography, or the name of a restaurant I may have been to more than once, sometimes I lie in bed and though I could look it up, I mess around with trying to remember it because I always wonder if our brains were slightly better before we were relying on all this technology to support us. (However I can't tell if it helps anything. So sometimes I suffer, and eventually remember, or I look it up and feel like, "Ahhhhh" much better.) You are then releasing it from its task. But I can think of another, different scenario, where, say, you spent many hours (or more) working on some project. So much so, that you dream about it, or fixate on it while you're trying to fall asleep. That's all part of the brain's way of filing it, processing it.cont'd...I really need a longer character limit...
Hmm. I've always wondered what's going on in a guy's mind when you see him sitting and his foot is almost violently shaking. Nervous energy? So maybe he's got a frantic song in his head?Does the urge to listen and replay correlate with either the complexity of the song, or your strong like of it?"Mind-Pod" heehehee.During an exam? Whoa. That's weird. That pushes this into a whole other realm.Remember that teenager on here who was asking 'Can you ever be too creative?' who had thoughts rushing in, associations with all sorts of objects, and finding it hard to slow them down. Ah ha, found it! Ha, we are still two of only 5 people who answered it. Yep, still interesting.Is too much creativity a bad thing? ↗My left hand has never been able to snap. I feel like a lame duck. Ever seen Steve Martin try to snap in The Jerk? Omg so funny. He was learning rhythm (thought he was black, but "born a poor Black child from the South" he felt very deficient.) Clearly that is not you.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeDgOUoDTsY
The notation if you're curious:It's basically your left hand and feet going snare, 4 kicks, repeat without any rests. The right hand is going quarter notes.I suppose it's kind of like the tip-of-the-tongue phenomenon like you mentioned. For real complicated beats like Kascade though, it becomes less of remembering it and more so mentally playing it until I know it extremely solidly. Like I'll have the theoretical understanding of it notation-wise, but since I'm not perfect at it, it's not deemed 'good enough' and I'll keep thinking about it.I think for a lot of guys the leg shaking is a bit of restlessness. I use it as a sort of practice now for leg independence. Like alternating left and right leg, doing paradiddles, etc.. (Lowkey-- I was raised Catholic. On long sermons, I'd be bouncing my legs because I'd be losing focus of the sermon and thinking of music to pass the time.) I suppose for me it's restlessness in the end as well, since it's usually a means when I'm bored lol (i.e. school, long drives-- using my left leg of course, waiting rooms, etc.).
You are challenging yourself to perfect something, so your mind won't let it go, which although annoying like an earworm, shows a lot of determination.Speaking of complicated beats (and syncopation):Another fabulous VOX video. I am in awe every time I watch this. I asked a q recently about watching competition shows (which I generally dislike) but as some others said, watching people trying to figure out an intellectual challenge, now that can be interesting, when the work is of a very high level.www.youtube.com/watch
That was beautiful, Bluemax. Your wife sounds like a lovely woman. I'm so sorry for your loss.
Bingo. That's the key. When you learn about yourself (and the Myers-Briggs is a fantastic venue to do that), you feel less random, like there is more structure behind, or within you. You and I are at the veeery bottom of that list of 16. 1.5% of the population. I am not surprised you have felt listless. Comes with our type, the rarity. It can feel lonely, separate, at times. But not always, and not forever.
A lot of good stuff there...
Dude, that's deep.Pm sometime if you like. I'll talk about anything.
Yes I bet it is. Your mind is a fountain.
A fountain but one that is constantly overflowing, makes it hard to dedicate my mind to one particular task at any given time so perhaps useful but not efficient.
How refreshingly deep and honest.
I think about this too.
That is so awesome. I'd marry you.🐰🦊🦝🐨🐼🦓🐲🦆🦚🐦🦋
Good for you. I shall declare you unofficially Mr. Smartypants. But you'll have to think a little more 'base' around these parts...
Human emotions just cause me to think more about my response
I like the mister smarty pants title... It's at least as good as good as I was called in high school
Heh heh. Good. I’m glad. There was a restaurant my mum used to take me to when I was little - Smitty’s. They specialize in pancakes. I always got the Smartypants - crepes with strawberries and whipped cream (something I’ve eaten, on and off, ever since.) She used to lov ordering it for me in this certain way, always with a smirk. So I have good associations with the phrase.
Do you like having whipped cream licked off of you
Well, well, this topic has certainly taken a sudden turn. I suppose I walked right into that one, didn't I? And it's always the smart ones you should expect veering into that direction. Got to balance out all the 'hard' thinking. Yes, I suppose. But one must be thorough. I don't like any greasy residue. I like to be clean, on the outside.
Fun in the shower together
That would be clean on the outside
I don't want you to think I'm stalking you
Right. That's a perfect example.Max, I would never think that. This is social media. If a bunch of strangers, tens or hundreds of thousands of them just all wrote one line, on one question, and never crossed paths again, SM would be one mighty boring place. I've seen a couple people here mention, "I don't pay attention to the names." Meaning, they just make comments and don't really care about who's asking, or who's who. I am not like that. Like meeting at the 'water cooler', or going to restaurant-bar and seeing the same bartenders or patrons, I like familiarity. Though also, part of the surprise of life is not knowing who you're going to bump into (in this case, who will choose/see/be around to answer what questions.) I don't believe in online 'stalking.' I think it's perfectly normal and acceptable to look into someone's profile and read, or comment, or 'like' their older posts. The root of that is clearly about rejection/appearing too eager or interested. But what is life, if not just that. When it comes to people and relationships, I guess I don't believe in passivity. It's boring. Life is richer when it goes deeper.
Thanks for the opportunity to talk to you and all the people that answered you you blessed me with your attention
If you would like a new piece of physics to put into your head... Einstein's primarily known equation e equals MC square Thanksgiving... Is much deeper equation than most anybody knows about... It's a direct description of the nature of space-time... You have seen when people use a rubber sheet stretched across an opening... To represent space time then they put a mass usually all of some type of ball... What they should be doing instead if they want to keep it real...Is pucker up a part of that rubber sheet and that represents Mass... for we are not independent of space-time and anyway we are actually made of that material puckered up into different shapes bends and twists... We are each made of the same stuff each person each object you can point to. As well as all the forces that we know is made of the same stuff been to twisted space-time... You're made of the same stuff as a star.
I wasn't pulling your leg I really do think of this stuff
Ah, interesting. You clearly have 'the pudding'. (Comprende?)Carry on, if you like. Throw me some juicy morsels anytime you want. (But be gentle with me. Everything I ever learned about physics, I learned from Big Bang [Theory] so that is not quite at your level, I dare say.)
You're not fat...
If I'm alone, unfortunately, I think about why I am so bored too
You sound like you really like to work with your hands. Do you prefer more tangible things over abstract? Or are these problems/necessities that need fixing?
Wasn't expecting this... but
Not everyday with a thought like this
Try it sometime it makes u feel sexy
Good thing you're only 25. There's still lots of time.
