It was a long time ago but that reminds me of how long it took me to realize the Bosstones in Mighty Mighty Bosstones was about them being from Boston

My dad always said "Boss" for things being good so I thought it was just that they did boss tones

Nowhere near 50 ways are listed in "50 ways to leave your lover"
Combarieu declares that the songs of birds are not "musical" either, because they are "very difficult to take down in notation." See his Music-Its Laws and Evolution, 155. Will some divine power please create a "Musical" bird to sing the Air for G String in exact Equal Temperament for M. Combarieu?

Right, he's just really sure there "must be 50 ways" but he can't be expected to come up with all of them himself.

When I was in high school I was at a music store in the mall browsing through CDs. I was looking through what they had by The Orb and there was one called "The Peel Sessions." I had no idea what that was but then I started to notice other artists had their own "Peel Sessions" CDs. Even the Smashing Pumpkins!

Somehow I formed the idea in my mind that these releases were the artists performing some of their songs in a "peeled back" style, like maybe the songs were simpler, any non-essential elements of the music "peeled" away, maybe like an MTV Unplugged theme but obviously done in some way that would still allow electronic music to be performed and recorded. It would be several years before I'd finally understand what these releases really were.

This wasn't a recent Don Don but I just like posting in this thread.

They are similar sounding but I don't think they're exactly the same chord. In both cases it's not a clearly identifiable chord because different voicings are played on different instruments at the same time.

The chord is here comes your man is definitely a homage to the beatles though.

I love how much sense this makes! I like imagining all those bands being like “ok in the tradition of Napalm Death and the Orb, let’s peel it back!

When I first got Napster I started seeing lots of live recordings show up in the search results.

Lots of these were "Live at Brixton Academy."

So many, in fact, that I would often think about Brixton Academy and imagine how lucky the students there must have been to be able to see so many cool bands come play at their campus.

I caught this on a whim the other day and can't believe I've never made this connection. It also led me down a hole of other adjectives like this that are really cool but could never be used outside like, McCarthy. I guess I've seen aqualine some, and chelonian sounds familiar, too.

Whoa “bufotenine” means “toad-like”. That is a wild ass don don for me. For those who don’t know, bufotenine is 5-hydroxy-DMT, as secreted from the cane toad and friends. 4-ho-dmt is the active chem in shrooms

In Polish a sport of volleyball is called "siatkówka", where the first part of the word, "siatka", means "net", so it can be literally translated as "netgame". Today I realised that the English meaning revolves around the rule of not letting the ball hitting the ground, not around a net, over which the ball is passed (the net itself cannot be touched by any of the player), and although I've known the rules this strucked me somehow cause for my whole life I felt that the net is the most important part of the sport and for an English speaking person the game is about not letting the ball touch the ground, which let me see the sport from entirely different perspective.

Poland won a world cup in volleyball yesterday, second time in a row, by the way 8-)

I have not watched, or played, much volleyball, but to me I did always focus on the fact that the players were just trying to keep the ball off the ground. If I were to watch it now, would I notice how frequently one team was trying to get the other team to accidentally touch, or play close to, the net? Is that part of the strategy that I have never been aware of?
