        I dont love all of their stuff. mostly just a fever you can't sweat out and death of a bachelor, but this is still a bummer. he's an incredibly talented singer

        @SoupRKnowva Other than Death of a Bachelor I mostly prefer their first few albums, really don't care much for Viva. That said, IIRC he's just taking time to focus on his new child which makes sense.

        @Thad E Ginathom long story but I just learned some things that would have made that theoretical arrangement very uncomfortable for the guy. Doggo probably staying with us longer term.

        Right before he vanished did he throw up a blanket above his head and then it dropped and he was gone? If so I know how that works.

        My brain hurts now. Sorry for the bad sentence structure there. That's what happens to pedants: the next thing they say on the internet goes all wrong!

        The semicolon is both overused and underutilised. It's one of my favourite bits of punctuation right next to the interrobang.

        Also, I personally blame this on my inability to parse what I read correctly XD

        I actually go into most gear demos expecting to be disappointed since I figure that's a far better barometer of my being contented with buying them than elsewise, which likely explains why I try my best to include negatives in every impressions post I make. Seems more sensible as a buyer's guide thing.

        Guess this means I should raise expectations over the next week or two before I get to get ears on it :P

        Forgot: @Deep Funk prose that eloquently and succinctly conveys idea is indeed no different from poetry. Thing is, nuances in bourbon and beer are different; the more delicate notes are obfuscated in the distillation so greater risk of glossing over.

        It was simple disagreement, but presented in a kind of over-the-top way, because of the fear and mistrust caused by HF and the like. That's understandable, though it doesn't excuse any genuine rudeness. And it should, at least, have been balanced with a *mountain* of gratitude.

        They didn't really have a pan console to blend between L-R. So all you got was one track L, Mono, or R. Mixing stereo became a new thing and an pan-pot had to be invented. Jimi Hendix did it too for fun blending and panning on Axis and Electric Ladyland. And Brian Wilson hated stereo at first.
