Open Discussion / Re: The experimental political thread - be cool
« on: November 17, 2016, 12:20:32 AM »
I've been laying low for a while, partly because of the election, but I want to get in here before the thread gets closed.

If anyone's been feeling helpless and nihilistic in the wake of this election, I want to offer one concrete thing that you can do. I don't think anyone here wants to see Stephen Bannon in the White House, so if you who feel up to it, call your representatives and ask them to speak out against him. It's true that his appointment isn't subject to a Congressional vote, but presidents have been forced to withdraw nominations after public outcry in the past (remember Bill Clinton and Nannygate?).

If you don't know who your representatives are, you can look up your Senators here:

And your Representatives in the House here:

Call them up, they'll listen! It only takes five minutes of your time, and it could make a real difference.

And remember: if you're upset, do not let this become normal. This is not normal. Pay attention, hold your leaders accountable, and make your voices heard.

Your wiring on that 8Ball is how I want all my builds to look.

I refuse to believe that's only your eighth build. I've been doing this for six years and I wish I could make my wiring look that good!

I'm a few days late on this, but what an etch!

Also, come on, no video of the LED meter in action? Hook us up!

I've been away for a few days, but this is a wiring job to aspire to for sure.

Another flawless victory.

So where can we read about your gate adventures?

I guess the build doc never did get updated.

Open Discussion / Re: Music Is Dead

It's worth noting that in response to that keynote address, Marc Ribot publicly asked Steve Albini to put all of his music in the public domain, since “… the intellectual construct of copyright and intellectual property ownership is not realistic…That old copyright model of the person who wrote something down owns it and anyone else who wants to use it or see it has to pay him, I think that model has expired.”

Albini has not responded, nor has he given up his copyright claims.

I agree with Marc Ribot -- copyright is still necessary for working artists and musicians to attempt to make a living off of their music. (I say "attempt" because nobody's really getting paid anymore. It's awful.)

Duck knobs.

Duck. Knobs.

Duck knobs.

That is all.

Man, wow. That Rangemaster is incredible.

So glad to see you're branching out, Dan! Keep up the excellent work.
