Re: Unpopular Musical Opinions

I thought it would be clear enough to everyone. The rock and metal bands were compared to mozart because of their tame use of harmony, melody and rhythm, which is clearly how the original poster views mozart.

Re: Unpopular Musical Opinions

Math rock isn't the only thing that makes it different from normal rock, you know, and it has a unique sound compared to any other section of 'rock music', so there is a need to coin a specific name for it. Anyways, just because the techniques used in math rock are similar to the ones used in rites ...

Re: Unpopular Musical Opinions

- Rock, punk, etc. "hardcore" genres are unbelievably tame in terms of melody, harmony, and even rhythm, that it's almost like they are writing Mozart.


Not all of them, though. Take math rock for example. Or progressive metal.

Given that you don't presently squat or deadlift you can expect large gains. Almost anything with squats would be an improvement over your current programming. SS will take the average male's squat to around 1.5x body weight in 3-9 months and if you eat enough you can also expect a 15-20 kg (30-45 ...

Re: Let's Talk About Theobromine - that means Chocolate.

I bought a bar of 85% today.

It seemed a little..pointless? I mean, I like the 70% for it's sweet but dark taste, and the 99% for it's bitter richness, but the 85% seemed blandly in the middle with neither of these qualities. :? Maybe it was just some inferior 85%?
