All this reminds me of people in the suburbs bitching about how they don't want to pay property taxes to fund the schools because they don't have any children who go to those schools.

Then they act shocked when a fifth grader can't find the US on a world map.

Havne't listened to it yet, but have you considered using delay effects to anticipate the tempo shifts?  For example, a dotted quarter note, or even dotted half note delay during the 142 section would carry the beat over several measures/bar lines, shifting the beat around.  If you send it pre-delay and cross-fade the original track, you can easily settle into the 71. 

To go from 71 to 142, try setting the delay to an eighth note triplet. The energy will kick up, and should make the transition easier.


But again, I haven't listened to it yet, so I might be talking shit here...

Does "the bottle" count as a glass?

Not to get too theological here, but the addage "Everyone is a Discordian*, whether they know it or not" seems to imply that even if they don't know about Discordia, they will still behave according to Discordian principles: The Eristic/Aneristic Illusions, Law of Fives, etc.


Or to put it another way, "we're all in Prison, even if some can't see the bars."
























*Except TGRR.

Copper is currently incredibly expensive.  Around Boston, people are breaking into houses to steal copper wiring and such.

That's where the "principle" comes in.

Still, none of this is convicting a person simply because the evidence is a secret.

Well, you might want to compare it to record labels like Mute, which while owned by EMI, still puts out quality music.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: The Authoritarian Personality

Ok, read it.  I liked this paragraph:

Quote
I have discovered in my investigations that, by and large, high RWA students had simply missed many of the experiences that might have lowered their authoritarianism.

Take that first item on page 59 about fathers being the head of the family. Authoritarian followers often said they didnít know any other kind of families. And they hadnít known any unpatriotic people, nor had they broken many rules.

They simply had not met many different kinds of people or done their share of wild and crazy things. Instead they had grown up in an enclosed, rather homogeneous environment--with their friends, their schools, their readings, their amusements all controlled to keep them out of harmís way and Satanís evil clutches.

They had contentedly traveled around on short leashes in relatively small, tight, safe circles all their lives.


It suggests that some aspects of O:M are indeed beneficial.

Well, yes, but I was looking for a citation where the trial was decided because the evidence was secret.  As in, "if the evidence is secret, then you are guilty."
