  1. I came across this study about a week ago. The goal was to find the most timeless songs based on Spotify playbacks: http://poly-graph.co/timeless/ It's interesting to see how a lot of songs that were not particularly famous or popular when they came out are the songs that people today remember from previous decades. I thought it was a very cool study and the interactive graphs are awesome so I thought I'd share.
  2. This is why I bring a set of V-Moda faders with me to every live show I attend. They're ear plugs which are specifically tuned for listening to live music: http://v-moda.com/faders-vip I'm 21 and I attend a lot of live shows for all different kinds of music. I value my hearing and I would rather not go deaf before I'm 30.
  3. For me it's the blues. I love rock too but I can sit down with a guitar a crank out the blues all day long. It just has so much soul and feel. I never get tired of it.
  4. I've been running a 64 bit OS for 7 years. A 64 bit copy of Windows should be fully backwards compatible with any 32 bit software. I've never heard of that being an issue.
  5. That sounds like a personal problem. I lost nothing when I upgraded.
  6. I'm inclined to agree. It's a vast improvement over Windows 8/8.1.
  7. I have Cortana activated and setup to respond to voice commands. It's incredibly useful. I don't really care what it gives Microsoft permission to do. It's not like they're going to come to my house and kill my family.
  8. I've been running it on my laptop for a few days. I went ahead and deleted everything and did a fresh install since there was nothing important on my laptop. It runs fine. It's the same old Windows with a few new features and a new skin on top of it. They've also made some performance improvements but other than that it's nothing amazing. I'm currently out of town but when I get home I'm going to try the upgrade on my desktop without doing a fresh install. Hopefully that goes well because I do have important stuff on that computer.
  9. Yes it is. I see these kinds of cars all the time. I've seen almost every modern expensive car you can think of up close and personal. I've seen a LaFerrari, two different McLaren P1s, several 918 Spyders, and a Bugatti Veyron. I've also seen countless Ferraris, McLarens, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Lamborghinis, etc in person as well as many other rare cars from all different manufacturers. When you're an automotive enthusiast you know where to find them. It also helps that I live near one of the richest areas in the US. Here's a few more examples:
  10. I'm also a photographer. Those shots look great. For some reason, insects just seem to make fantastic subjects: However, my subjects are usually cars. Automotive photography is my favorite kind of photography:

    NPD!

    Just picked this up the other day on Reverb. Needed something to control my Strymon BigSky and this does the job very well:
  12. I'll admit that a lot of electronic tracks use the same drum beat for the entire track such as those two that you listened to. But a lot of tracks do not. A very famous technique in electronic music, and EDM especially, is something called a drop. The tempo of the song will suddenly increase either slowly or very quickly and then the sound is cut all together for a split second followed by the music coming back in very strong and hard. That is probably the most commonly used dynamic in electronic music. It is actually very hard to reproduce real instrument dynamics in electronic music which is why you will very rarely ever hear it.
  13. I understand what you're saying but I'm going to have to disagree. Modern recording equipment and software is not an instant bad player fixer. There are some fantastic upcoming guitarists out there with real skill and it shows on the recording. There's a major point that you're not taking into consideration - the importance of the guitar in modern music. It's not what it used to be. In the 70s it was normal for a guitarist to run the stage on his own for 10+ minutes at time and every song on an album had to have a guitar solo. This is not true anymore. People got tired of the self glorification of past musicians and now you'll be lucky to hear a guitar solo on a single song on an album. The guitar has been moved to a supporting role as opposed to the leading role it once played. It doesn't take years of practice to lay down a simple rhythm part on a studio recording which is was most modern guitar parts are.
  14. Is there any particular reason you are so delusional? Do you also believe aliens are coming to take over the world?
  15. And lastly here's another example a track created entirely by the producer. This one has recently been a massive radio hit as were the last two when they were first released: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjHMDlAPMUw
