Re: Free will is an illusion....?

For sure, keep it coming Matz...Hype is right; you don't need a PhD to weigh in. In fact, I have been arguing for years that academics live to impress other very smart academics to the exclusion of their serviceable utility in everyday life. I actually think its a massive disservice to culture and s...

Re: The Dead Musicians thread

Btw, watched The Devil and Daniel Johnstone last night...fairly excruciating. His good work reminds me of the stripped down work of Jane's at Wilton in personality.

Re: The Dead Musicians thread

He was advanced and beyond such stuff...but I was doing blow on the tables at Trader Vic's drinking the whatever drink was their reservoir of sweet alc and he chuckled. Must have been late 80's early 90's...I don't remember. The rest of the night was great and not great. I loved seeing him.

Well, here is the data for the General by top tier Dem candidates...most well outside reasonable margins of error https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/general_election/ And yes, Hype....I too fear what can't be accomplished by the more progressive candidates, but it's enough to know...

Re: Free will is an illusion....?

Yes, this is important. To non academics who are intensely curious, the nihilistic result of determinism seems like the logical sum. Science, to the layman does too....more so

Re: Democratic Presidential Campaign 2020

Yeah, I don't really understand what you are saying. If I do, it is overly reductive. Reducing this election and the disparate interests of a disparate electorate to love and hate is a bit to simple for me to wrap my head around. I agree people are pissed though, but not to the point of anarchy or r...

Re: Democratic Presidential Campaign 2020

Well, these summaries completely ignore the General Election polling. I'll save you the effort....I am aware of the polling issues in 16. Booker has no chance. Biden will be an issue if he gets the nomination. I viewed the debate a bit differently than what I have heard described. I saw a couple of ...

Re: We Are Not Your Kind

If I could recognize one song, I don't know it. But I am a huge Corey Taylor fan. Love his voice musically and otherwise. I went to a Drop in the Bucket benny years ago, and Rollins mc'd. He went into this story about how their first choice for vox had committed and then decommitted at the 11th hour...

Re: Post your Jane's / Jane's related buy

Seriously don't recall a thread on Jane's pics so I'll drop this here. I had never seen this, but I found it yesterday. I love this pic as it really captures the vibe of LA and the true underground nature of the time. This is the PF that makes me happy happy. I cropped the other party goers out and ...

That is some serious cardboard. There must be some very real investment criteria collectors go by that, in addition to emotion and card production, set the prices?
