  1. Another one with a glance. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/in-one-lifespan/201507/the-adaptive-functions-music-listening
  2. Update: Bought/closed on land...house sold in 4 days!

    Congratulations. It CAN be very stressful, as you know. I hope this one goes smooth. Travis
  3. How does Hans Zimmer keep doing it? Or Enricco Morricon?
  4. Songs selected for movies seem to have a lot of impact at times, and can open a door to a lot of new things.
  5. I agree completely on Steely Dan being something you never get tired of. That duo was influenced by the writing of Burroughs, but not the other way around. I think on simpler pop a lot has to do with publicists and "star makers" doing what they do to shape or influence tastes. In the end it is still all personal taste.
  6. “These people are too fancy, they’re too sophisticated,” William S. Burroughs said of Steely Dan in 1977. “They’re doing too many things at once in a song.” Burroughs, who had no personal connection to the band, had been asked to comment on Aja, Steely Dan’s new record, because co-founder Walter Becker and Donald Fagen had named themselves after “Steely Dan III from Yokohama,” Burroughs apparently doesn't like complex.

    It's the "skip" or captain position. They call all shots and can throw last two stones.
  8. Gotta Look at Your Phone in 5:00 Traffic?

    In some states "reckless conduct" can trigger punitive damages.
  9. Gotta Look at Your Phone in 5:00 Traffic?

    If the other driver is "at fault" then it doesn't matter what the driver was doing at time of collision (unless the conduct triggers punitive damages in your state, and then it does begin to matter). In a "no-fault" state, they don't look at who is responsible, they limit and specify what you can recover. Cell phone records are routinely checked in serious accident cases, they have been for over 20 years. It would be pretty stupid to get yourself hemmed up on a purgery charge on something as simple as this.

    They won't NDA your photos when you settle, just a release with no admission of liability.
  11. Gotta Look at Your Phone in 5:00 Traffic?

    It's a state law in Texas, however, the numbskulls wrote it in such a way that it can't be enforced.

  13. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Sound by Luther @Wardsweb BBQ by @dwilawyer Pissed of neighbours? It was St. Patrick's so we didn't care
  14. Static? Pops

    I have had that happen on occasion. It has either been one of two things. Ground problem Internal to amp. Or, power grid problem that was fixed with line conditioner. If you have spare receiver, sub it in and see. If it persists, look at a line conditioner. Travis
  15. RIP Stephen Hawking

    It was Leonard Susskind at Stanford. That war went on for two decades.
