Have you guys tried this app yet? Been mining free pi crypto for the last day already at 16 coins and its releasing end of the year! It's invite only right now if you want an invite code you can try to use my link if it's not maxed out already my code is Greeksta Also does anyone know more sites like this where I can mine free unreleased coins? I heard about a few but not as good as Pi right now I guess

This is your dark cave for discussion surrounding everything from the musical genres of rock and metal, along with its rolling prototype form. "Quick" riff samples and licks of history from its creators right here for your back & forth movement necessities. Nowadays i only listen to certain sub-genres, mainly the psychedelic, but sure as hellfire will upload artists of old playlists of mine ranging from progressive to the classic hardies and heavies.

How popular is rock with young people nowadays? I imagine it's kind of a niche thing nowadays. I went to school back when its glory days were over, but it still seemed to be the music of choice for adolescent males. I might dislike the metalcore music that was popular then, but at least it wasn't rap.
>>1128 As far as i've seen it became underground or "obscure" again, something ironically many of us wanted back in the day. I also found myself in the days of metalcore/emo, which i disliked, but among them there's was also oldheads (Toto, Scorpions, Deep Purple, etc, "dadrock") the tougher chain draggers (death/black metal, some thrash metal), the goths popular with women (Nightwish, Stratovarius, basically Goth and Power Metal along with Evanessence) and the actually rare stoners, which i related the most despite actually not using substances hence why i separated myself from them (Psychedelic Rock, Shoegaze, Stoner Metal, some electronica like Goia Trance). Nowadays i've identified that only a strange combination of the oldhead/chainman exists in the teenager/high school years, dudes who really like rock/metal in general and may know stuff far away from the mainstream but who never go the distance of using leather items, square metal belts or sometimes even the classic black shirt under the school uniform. In my region these days it's mostly nigger babble rap, events around rap battles, abstract nigger sounds akin to Death Grips, hipster pop or /mu/ pop (popular with women), the much maligned reggaeton/dance hall pop and, thank God, a lot of country/regional music (belittled but never dies because the people never do unless replaced) So in short, a much smaller presence but it's there, kinda like how real punk had its followers but were niche even inside the rock circles. I can imagine the only trace Punk has nowadays is some chicks wearing Misfits t-shirts and some legit madhouse material breaking glass bottles for fun outside bars.
>>1131 >Nowadays i've identified that only a strange combination of the oldhead/chainman exists in the teenager/high school years, That part sounds like how I was back then. I don't listen to much '60 and '70s rock anymore, but I used to listen to pretty much anything hard that wasn't what the Hot Topic kids were listening to. These days I'm even willing to give some of their music a chance. >I can imagine the only trace Punk has nowadays is some chicks wearing Misfits t-shirts and some legit madhouse material breaking glass bottles for fun outside bars. Even a decade ago it seemed to be getting less popular. A lot of the time you'd see people mention "hardcore," but by that they'd mean metalcore crap and not actual hardcore.
>>1132 >These days I'm even willing to give some of their music a chance. Same here, i did venerate the classics back in the day but i was also fond of the then-new efforts from a bunch of euro psychedelia, nowadays kinda faded away but other than that i am more willing to explore the stuff from 2005 and on... except the metalcore/deathcore thingies, i just don't feel them yet. Although some other things are confusing, Math Rock is nowadays called Djent and practically became a meme, it is the natural evolution of technique bragging some bands did in the progressive and even death metal sub-genres. And to this day my favorite instrument, the bass, is still ignored by all of those except some psych bands. >but by that they'd mean metalcore crap and not actual hardcore. Back in my day (mid-late 00s) Hardcore was still a thing among a couple dozen guys but they were hated by everyone, they didn't kid around the anarchy thing and didn't leave anything valuable behind like, for example, the others did with local scene bands or special places with particular rituals (going to a soda bar, drinking cream soda with ice cream and blasting only classic rock from 2 to 3). I've seen a couple of those old punks "recently" and they stayed high in their substances, real deadbeats but one thing is true, nobody messes with them other than hitmen groups who crash at bars high on coke sometimes My concern is that back then urban groups were highly recognizable and varied, nowadays it's 3 brands of afro-american shit mixed together, some candy pop girls/homos and the regional style. It seems tastes in music and shows became substituted with identity politics, ironically those urban sub-groups practically were identity warring bands and worked somewhat the same in terms of bragging/social brownie points/signaling but they focused more on things you could set aside at the end of the day to drink a few beers with others instead of what's happening nowadays.
>>1133 >except the metalcore/deathcore thingies, i just don't feel them yet. I don't either and am not sure I ever will. I hardly listen to much rock from this century as it is. >And to this day my favorite instrument, the bass, is still ignored by all of those except some psych bands. It always bothered me how bass is underutilized in most rock music. You can do a lot more with it than just play simplified version of whatever line the guitarist is playing. >My concern is that back then urban groups were highly recognizable and varied, nowadays it's 3 brands of afro-american shit mixed together, some candy pop girls/homos and the regional style.

I only ever really identified with a musical subculture for a pretty short time, but I miss the variety there used to be. Now everything has become completely bland and homogenized.

The in-spot for appreciation of Jazz and its multiple off-shots, chiefly among them the flamboyant and ever-shifting Fusion genre along with some House and its evolution into NĂ¼-Jazz. Pieces and solo-ing samples along with actual tiny bits of history (usually) will be served once in a while for performer context. These genres usually have the particularity that the bands are very temporal and/or have members with extensive side works so i will probably post the line-ups too in the webm dumps. Also fusion albums move very closely in the border of jazz, rock and funk so it won't be rare to post music that could very well fit into other genres, especially progressive rock. Check our mother thread /musicprod/ as well for more discussion: >>42
I was supposed to make this post earlier but i wanted to wait specifically on a March 21 to commemorate the birthday of what is, in my humble opinion after having heard plenty of music, the most advanced electric guitarist to have ever lived Two years ago was the date but procrastination impeded me, then one year ago i had most of it but J.W got the spam and today there's no limits other than never having completed it fully. I might wind some things and rush a bit, along with the topic being a bit too leaned on the Hard Rock side, but i want to express my fondness to this particular individual whom i never met but had in its scarce bio, but rich hearsay, the example of a man who lived life like not many did: In relative NEETdom, taking his careful and methodical time with his hobbies and reaching a technical pinnacle still seen as unreachable to this day, and without harming anything or anyone to the point of being considered a genuinely good person by most people who met him. If there ever was a kind of superior entity living among us in contemporary times, be it an "angel" or an "alien", this guy surely was one.
I don't really know anything about the genre, but I've loved this piece ever since I heard it.

>>1010 Williams were really good with their pinball machines. Although I'm not a pinball fanatic, the two tables that stuck with me the most were Swords of Fury and The Twilight Zone. The former because the music was kinda dynamic as it starts off kind small, then it builds on top of itself as you progress further into the game. The multiball theme is kinda rockin', too. Twilight Zone was different since I was a fan of the classic series, and I really liked the gumball mechanic and the references to some cut material like The Power. I didn't know the main theme for the table was taken from Twilight Zone by Golden Earring, specifically around the middle section when it breaks down and it is just the riff playing followed by a guitar solo. Honorable mention goes to Black Knight 2000 since Ritchie provided his voice for the soundtrack and Forden also worked on it, too. I've seen the table for Black Knight a few years ago, but I didn't get to play on it sadly. Pinball machines are a sleeper when it comes to good music, and Williams were one of the few American companies with a competent sound team in terms of FM. Fun fact: Brian Schmidt, the composer of BK 2000 and SoF, would go on to work for Microsoft, specifically in the Audio department for the Original Xbox and created the start-up sound for the console. I liked the theme song from BK 2000 so much, that I composed it on the online nokia composer: https://zserge.com/nokia-composer/#eyJicG0iOiIxODAiLCJzb25nIjoiOGUxIDhlMSA4ZTEgOGUxIDhlMSA4ZzEgOGExIDRiMSA4YjEgOGIxIDhiMSA4YjEgOGcxIDhiMSA4YTEgOGcxIDhnMSA4ZzEgOGcxIDhnMSA4YjEgOGMyIDRkMiA4ZDIgOGIxIDhhMSA4ZDIgOGIxIDhhMSA4ZzEgOGUxIDhlMSA4ZTEgOGUxIDhlMSA4ZzEgOGExIDRiMSA4YjEgOGIxIDhiMSA4YjEgOGcxIDhiMSA4YTEgOGcxIDhnMSA4ZzEgOGcxIDhkMiA4ZzIgOGIxIDRkMiA4ZzIgOCNmMiA4ZDIgOGcyIDgjZjIgNGQyIn0=
I just got a Prophet-10. It seems pretty neat so far, although I still need more practice with subtractive synthesis.

>>1017 Some of what you mention may have merit, but I think Mehran Keshe may be a fraud. I did actual experiments like with those "bottle reactors" and never got anything out of it. I had a totally open mind while working on those experiments but was forced to conclude that Keshe's claims are dubious or that my setup was lacking something. Anyone can spout a bunch of unprovable things and claim them as true. I think a better approach is to do as Boyd Bushman said and "Follow the data". If you're getting something practical out, like in the case of the electrostatic lifters, or litting lightbulbs with cold electricity, then you got some result which can be worked with. If the result doesn't give anything useful (like with my attempts at reproducing Keshe's designs) then its pretty useless. In my view the aether is right on the border between the physical and non physical. How does one work with such a thing? Even working with hydrogen is pretty difficult. The cone spiral shapes are prominent also in Otis Carr's design (which is also kinda difficult to prove because it needs a lot of materials to make and the controlling of said craft had to rely on the operator instead of physical controls) a pretty alien design. A new field of explorative merit is emerging, called psychotronics. I admit that maybe some of Keshe's and others devices may have such qualities as to only allow certain users to get effects out. But in those instances it can become difficult to work with. Like John Hutchison alluded to becoming "a part of the circuit" would then be required. Most scientists don't do that consciously.
herro? according to new research, it may now be possible to construct the alcubierre warp drive using currently-known physics. the press release for it is here: https://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/3240.html?id=6192 >what are alcubierre warp drives? these type of ftl drives move the space around them in order to achieve ftl speeds. some long-standing problems for the warp drive were that it would have needed the existence of exotic matter/energy and tons of conventional energy to work, but this might not be necessary anymore. more info here: https://www.andersoninstitute.com/alcubierre-warp-drive.html
>>1094 I think I read about something like that, but it wasn't "alcubierre" warp drive, just warp drive which be less than light speed (which is still a good achievement if made) But this article you linked does seem to be about faster than light travel, its good that someone else considers it possible because travelling at sub light speeds may generally make it take very long to get anywhere in our outer space neighbourhood.

>>159 Beta 1.7, a lot of complaints were made for the additions of hunger and changing of world generation that removed the wacky looking huge mountains & floating islands. There was also another huge world generation change in Release 1.2 but I don't remember what it did. Similarly, after Release 1.8 they shat all over the combat system as well which caused a lot of controversy too.
