What makes Michael Bublé unique
2020.04.05 10:18 PockASqueenoWhat makes Michael Bublé unique
Lately I’ve been hearing lots of critique about Michael. Which is fine; everyone has the right to their own opinion, and critique is great for all artists for the sake of their own improvement. Anyway, the biggest critique I’ve seen lately is that “I love Frank Sinatra’s music, but nobody sings Frank Sinatra as well as Frank Sinatra.” This is fair. Generally speaking, the original musician performs their music better than anyone who covers the song. But to those who present this critique, I have two rebuttals:
Yes, Frank Sinatra sang his music better than anyone else ever will. The beauty of (and need for) covers is that old recordings of the greats will always sound old, regardless of how well you digitally remaster them. If it came off an old, scratchy, vinyl record, it will never sound like a newly recorded mp3 or m4a file. As a DJ, high fidelity music is really important to me, and covers by talented singers like Mr. Bublé can provide this.
Even more importantly, let’s talk about what makes him truly talented. Michael Bublé is absolutely legendary at taking an old song and making it a totally new song! My favorite song of his is his rendition of “My Funny Valentine.” This has always been a sweet, lovely jazz standard. What did he do with it? Turned it into an incredibly dramatic, 007-esque, action-packed song! Even though it’s still the same song with the same notes and words, you’d never guess they’re the same song if you didn’t know it ahead of time. Another great example is his version of “Help Me Make It Through the Night.” It’s a Willie Nelson, outlaw country classic, but Michael turned it into a Mexican mariachi! Who’d have thunk it? His magical way of transforming classic standards into a unique and creative new song is just as—if not more—impressive as his amazing voice.
I will admit one thing to the “haters” though. Michael’s original songs are horribly bland and boring. “Home?” “Haven’t Met You Yet?” “Forever Now?” YAWN These songs could literally put me to sleep. If I wanted to hear more generic, uncreative, modern pop, I’d listen to Justin Bieber. My mom loves Michael’s originals, and I just don’t get the appeal. Yeah, his voice is nice and better than most pop singers, but just a nice voice isn’t enough to hook me on a song.
2019.12.31 00:50 ManySleeplessNightsFarewell to the 2010's
First post here. (Long post/vent ahead) Idk if people will even care about this or read it through, so far all I've seen here are mostly memes, but I'll still put this here cos I needed to vent it out. The decade passing is something you never really think about until it's time for it to happen. In a few hours here it will be the last day of 2019 and, looking back in retrospect, these 10 years were truly the most beautiful years in my life. As a kid I was really carefree, not worrying about homework, projects or social life or any of that. There was good music, good TV, good Youtubers on Youtube, good games (even though I was never allowed a video game console or phone when I was a kid), and a ton of good friends to share memories with (most of who I barely even talk to anymore since we've all drifted apart so much). And as we slowly grew up, we never realized just how good a decade we were living in. Seeing how our entire generation was so interconnected by memes, music, favourite youtubers, movies etc in the course of ten years, and how in the blink of an eye everything we ever knew would be gone and we would be (probably not) mature adults and it would all be a memory, it kinda breaks my heart. I found a video on Youtube that basically sums up the 2010's and I thought I'd share it with you all. I find it difficult to watch sometimes because the memories are a bit too much to handle and I get a lil choked up over it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldSopRF66oQ Here it is. In the little time we have left in this decade I just want to say goodbye to it and all the things that made it so memorable, made it the best one of my life so far.

Farewell to going to arcades in the cinemas after seeing a film or just going for the fun (farewell to the House of the Dead games, idk if anyone remembers them but I loved them despite the horrible voice acting), farewell to birthday parties and actually feeling happy (I still do feel happy on birthdays, but it's more melancholic), farewell to laser tag and the fun we had in those games, farewell to Club Penguin, to Moshi Monsters, to Bin Weevils.

Farewell to when getting to go out and play with your friends was the most exciting thing ever. Farewell to when falling out with a friend would only last a day before youall got on like nothing happened.

Farewell to when "I'm telling on you" were the scariest words you could hear. Farewell to school discos and the glowsticks and the lil sherbert straws nobody could open without scissors. Farewell to playing Minecraft for hours into the night when your family is asleep. Farewell to thinking "Wow, that's so complicated, I could never understand that, not even when I'm older!" Farewell to when we were carefree and enjoyed life to its fullest, because we can never go back to those days again. Goodbye 2010-2019. You truly were the best years of my life. And to those of you who are reading this (I'm impressed if you made it this far), I wish you all the best in 2020 and the future.
2018.12.14 20:06 Luv2dapandaQuick and natural birth story (no time for epidural...) mostly positive, no complications
My daughter's birth story was a lot different from my son. To recap, his was a scheduled induction due to being too big, got an epidural and then vaginal birth. You can read it in my post history :) 39 weeks today and waiting to pop again, will post that story as soon as she comes. So here's my daughter's birth. Sorry it's long, When I wrote it I didn't want to forget anything. I tried to narrow it down a bit but it is still long! Background: My son, husband and I traveled to Guatemala in August 2013 to visit family and handle some business. At first, I was having a blast, enjoying my in laws and finally meeting my husband's side of the family. I was playing with the kids of the family every day. I still remember them begging me to play Justin Bieber videos for them on my laptop. Then, one day, I stopped having an appetite. Didn't want to eat anything. Everything smelled weird to me, including the paint on the walls. I started telling the kids I wanted to be alone and locking the door to our guest room. I felt terrible because they would come and knock and beg to hang out with me. Still feel bad about it to this day! I felt awful, and I told my husband I thought I had food poisoning. It actually happens a lot to Americans who travel abroad. I pretty much stopped eating and was afraid to touch anything, even water. I remember we got home one day and I got out of the car. My mother in law (abuela) smiled at me and took my arm. She told me in spanish "I will help you up the hill since you are expecting another baby" I laughed and thought she was joking but she was absolutely serious. I told her I wasn't pregnant, that there was no way and brushed it off....but she knew before me haha. Well, after she said that, I started to think about it. I realized I hadn't gotten my period yet. I wasn't quite late yet but I didn't have any symptoms of it coming. So we went to the Guatemalan Walmart (a really different experience btw) and bought a pregnancy test. I thought my period would come that day just to make me look like an idiot but it didn't. Well, we all know what happened. Took the test and saw the positive!! I didn't scream in the bathroom this time like my first. I silently went to the kitchen where abuela and my husband were waiting. Abuela had a knowing smile on her face and hubby looked at me curiously. I burst into tears and handed him the test. I couldn't say anything. Well, after that I think I lasted 2 more weeks over there and decided to come back to the US. I had a weird blood pressure issue (always do when pregnant where it is super low and causes me to faint). I was sitting on the couch eating a sandwich and got spots in my eyes and almost fainted....yea...I wasn't even standing lol. Well, we went to the doctor over there and the doctor just confirmed my pregnancy and said "don't know why that's happening. Here's a tylenol?? " and sent me home. Well, I didn't feel comfortable anymore and booked a flight home on 9/10...without my husband because he had to finish business. We had been planning to stay quite long and he couldn't leave in the middle of everything. I still remember the drive to the airport. I was so nauseas I threw up out the window and it went down the side of my brother in laws car (his baby) ew....I was so embarrassed! Well, we got there too late and I missed my flight. I was secretly happy because leaving my husband behind hurt...a lot. So our flight was rescheduled to the next day...9/11. Did NOT want to fly on that date but that's what ended up happening! My 1 year old son and I got on the plane alone. It was horrible. He was crying constantly missing daddy and I was sick and pregnant. I cried on the plane and a sweet 80 year old Guatemalan man comforted me...he didn't know english but he could feel my pain. Anyways, sorry for all that background but I feel like it related to this pregnancy. The pregnancy went smoothly except for that fainting thing. It happened at the dollar store and a nice lady gave me cold water and I got better...ugh. Fast forward to March, 8 months pregnant and Husband finally came home. It was the best day ever! He didn't work at the time so we spent every day together until the baby's due date. It was the best 1-2 months of my life!! However, toward the end I started to get very impatient and sick of being pregnant. Constant heartburn every day, pain in the hips and back, etc. I started to wonder if she would ever come! I kept swimming right up until the end and took walks as well. I only gained about 30 lbs compared to 70+ with my son...yikes! Then, I started to get super impatient and asked hubby to buy castor oil at the store for me. He flat out refused. We were really set on going natural this time. Our first birth wasn't traumatic but we wanted to do everything differently. So, instead of buying the oil, we went to the park. The parking lot was super full due to an event so we had to walk the long way over a bunch of hills. I think this is what finally set labor off for some reason. Not sure why though. Got home still in desperation. I walked into the bathroom and PSSHHHH!!!! My water broke right then. It was 5pm. I looked at my husband and said ".....this is it......" His face turned white. Contractions actually started right away and just felt like Braxton hicks for awhile. Maybe a slight difference I guess. I would gush more water with each contractions so I ended up getting one of my toddlers' diapers and putting it under a pad in my underwear (lol). Sounds so weird I know but it worked so well. I'm planning on getting actual adult female diapers this time just because I've read so many posts on here that recommend them. Anyways, I ended up posting on facebook that my water broke (big mistake) and soon everyone knew I was in labor and kept asking "how are you? baby here yet?" Drove me crazy and I won't be doing that again. My parents got dinner delivered for us and we all had an amazing meal at home watching funny tv shows while I labored. I started timing them while eating and they were speeding up fairly quickly. They jumped from every 10 minutes to every 5 or 4. I was writing them down and remember thinking "hmmm, I think it's getting close" but I still wasn't in much pain. Just felt like period cramps with pressure and for some crazy reason part of me thought this might not be the real deal. I read a lot about prodromal labor and was convinced this wasn't it. I still remember going in the kitchen to clean up after eating and suddenly having to stop during a contraction and focus on getting through it. My mom noticed and said it might be hospital time. Stubborn me said no and that I just wasn't sure yet. That paper I was writing times on? They eventually went to every 2-3 minutes and I left the paper downstairs. My mom found it later and totally freaked out. I went upstairs to my room and put my labor music on. I put all of my favorite songs on my mp3 player with headphones. This didn't work quite like I thought it would. They were my favorite songs that gave me energy for workouts and things like that but during labor you really need peaceful, relaxing calming music to keep you from freaking out. One of Adele's songs came on. I think it was 'rumor has it' and the contractions stepped up. I couldn't focus on the music anymore. It just sounded like loud static noise in my years and I ripped the headphones off. Maybe it was instinct, I'm not sure, but I ended up in the bathroom after this. I sat on the toilet thinking maybe I needed to go or something and ended up somewhat comfortable there. The contractions got even worse and were almost nonstop. No breaks! I started yelling at this point, I couldn't control it. My husband showed up pale faced (no idea where he was all this time). He saw me on the toilet and apparently remembered this was something women do when they're close. He grabbed me and said I had to MOVE. I refused at first. I just wanted to stay there and yell. But he forced me up. I grabbed the sink as another huge contraction hit and yelled some more. Note: Even though I read a lot of birth stories for this labor, I didn't prepare for my fear or anxiety at all. No yoga, no calming nothing so I kind of lost control at this point with my fear. I screamed a lot because I wasn't sure what was happening and was afraid which made the pain 10 times worse. In between contractions, my husband managed to get me back in our room and I grabbed the dresser as another one hit. I remember my mom showing up and she got in a huge fight with my husband......great......just the best time for an argument right? She was on the phone with a 911 EMT and they were telling her I should stay home and let the baby come and they would be there soon to deliver. My husband fought with her saying we needed to be in the hospital ASAP. Finally I started screaming that I was going and just wanted relief. Between contractions I managed to get down the stairs...and another one hit. Then I got to the car somehow and after that it felt like there were literally NO breaks between contractions. The entire car ride is just a blur of pain because of the bumps and my husband's crazy fast driving. We finally got to the hospital and my husband ran in and got a wheelchair. I don't remember it but I think they tried to make me register but I was screaming so loud they didn't push too hard and just waved me through. The poor security guard. He had this awkward look on his face and pushed my wheelchair. I guess for liability reasons because I would have preferred my husband to push me. I literally screamed the entire way to labor and delivery upstairs. Once in my delivery room, there were 4-5 nurses there just waiting for me. They somehow got me on the bed and I was screaming for an epidural. Well, they checked me and I was a 10 and almost crowning so...no...lol. My anxiety really took over and I screamed even louder. The nurses told me to quiet down and try breathing as though I was blowing out birthday candles to try and stop the baby from crowning. I didn't listen much because at this point the urge to push took over. My whole body was in control and pushing actively. I tried to do the breathing but it felt like a lost cause. The doctor showed up and she took one look between my legs and freaked out. She actually pushed my legs together and told me to stop pushing because she wasn't ready. Ok, when she pushed my legs together it was the most painful thing ever. I immediately kicked her in the chest, it was like a reflex or something...or maybe she pissed me off a bit but wow. She was a bit mad after that but hurried up. She was finally ready and told me to try and slow down so I wouldn't tear. I did my best but like I said, my body was in control. I remember finally calming down at this point. I was still scared and pushing was painful but I felt like the end was coming and there was nothing else I could do. I remember thinking how weird it was that I was actually doing this...me...no medicine no help. Just me. I think it both terrified me and empowered me. The head hurt to push out and I felt the ring of fire but I let out a battle cry and pushed her out when the doctor said. The relief was amazing! The shoulders were still hard but compared to the head were pretty easy. My daughter was born at 12:25pm after midnight on April 14th. I was really happy because I didn't want her to come on April 13th (superstituous) After she was out, I felt this amazinging feeling wash over me. A mixture of relief and some kind of endorphin high. I felt so strong, it was crazy! I didn't tear at all, just a small scrape and I owe that to the doctor. Even though she made me so angry she did a great job at coaching me and preventing me from going to fast. She pissed me off again though because she wouldn't let my husband cut the cord. She wanted to do it herself because that was "her way of doing things to prevent problems" whatever. They cleaned her up a bit and brought her to me to breastfeed. I passed the placenta at this point, it was super easy and breastfed. I remember how weird it was to hold a newborn again but also marveling at how beautiful she was and feeling love for her. This was shortlived though because I suddenly started shivering like crazy. They say it's from an adrenaline dump after birth and all that fear processing. I felt so cold and just shivered away. The doctor assured me it was normal so I just let it happen. At one point a nurse asked me to try to use the bathroom to make sure I could go. I brushed it off and said I didn't have any urge to go. The nurse then said I needed to empty my bladder, it was important so I went in. Well, after 5 minutes trying I came out and said "no go". She then threatened to put a catheter in if I was unable to do it on my own. I told her I'd try again!! After my experience in my first labor, I was DETERMINED to avoid the catheter! I went in the bathroom, turned the sink on and flushed the toilet to hear running water. I put my hand in the sink water and imagined the water coming out. Luckily it worked and I went. I felt so much better! The rest of the stay was uneventful. Just getting to know my newborn and recovering. Recovery was MUCH easier this time. I felt almost normal by the 2nd day. Just a little weak like I overexercised or something. No tear, no painful sitting etc. Now I will say this, I really didn't prepare well for this labor. I was conflicted and torn between getting the epidural or trying natural so I didn't read up on it very much because I just wasn't sure. The amazing recovery made it worth doing it that way but for this 3rd time around I've really tried to prepare myself more. I've read several books on calm birthing, getting through transition (the time that hurt the most) and reducing anxiety. The birth started at 5 pm after water breaking and lasted a little over 7 hours...so yea, definitely went quick. I attribute the quickness due to my ability to relax so much at home and laugh with my family. Everyone says to rush to the hospital right away but I've read countless stories of labor stalling, stopping or becoming long and painful because of that. I plan on leaving a bit earlier this time around but want to stay home a bit too. I'll definitely not wait for 2-3 minutes like last time! This could easily have been a car birth if I lived a bit farther away......doh! I'm hoping to go natural again but will keep my mind open in case of emergencies etc. I've done hypnobirthing and practice exercises every night and as much as I can on weekends. So that's my birth stories. I posted my first one already and after this third one comes will post that one as well. It's nice to have it all written out for me to read again and again when I feel the want to. Ask me any questions you have! Amanda
2018.08.12 04:59 TragicKingdom1I compiled some interesting or unusual artist merch
hi everyone, i'm back with another product of my neuroses probably like once a month i browse official musician merch to find limited edition things that aren't heavily advertised or just to get a sense of how much money my faves are making. i've noticed that some artists have some quirky or unusual items that might be of interest to people on this subreddit. some disclaimers:
i couldn't go through every artist obviously so this list is not comprehensive whatsoever
i avoided overlap as much as possible, in the case of only a few artists having a similar unusual item i went with who i thought the sub cared about more
i only went for items that were in stock and generally reasonably priced (a lot of artists have exorbitant collector's items but they're not designed to be wide-appeal merch like these items)
some of these items do fall under the general fare of merch (your t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, hats, jewelry, CDs, vinyl, patches, enamel pins, posters, etc) but have some unique aspect that make them stand out!
this one is just baffling to me, for one it's really random that fifth harmony of all artists is the only ones to be selling extra battery packs for your phones. secondly the description lists an iPhone 7 case as part of the deal but it's not in the image so who knows if you'll actually get it
this one made me scream lmao, first of all they're the cheapest item i found, secondly i love how the packaging doesn't use the trademarked phrase "silly bands" so the title of the listing has to clarify what they actually are

Sup trappers and ho ho ho[es]! I decided to make this month's post a bit early in celebration of the holidays and the spirit of giving. Last month I posted my favorite tracks from November, and now I bring you December. Again, a bit of a disclaimer: I may not be into the same kind of trap or bass music as you, this is strictly the stuff I enjoy. Most of these tracks are free, if not, you can probably figure out how to acquire them. I know Jersey Club and Baltimore Club are not really trap, but it goes well together and in Trap sets they are usually played as well, so.. why not? If you think something doesn't fit, shout it out, I won't remove it, but you can correct another person on the internet, so there is that. As always, please feel free to contribute your tracks in the comments. Lastly, You can follow me on SC, I mix a lot of genres for the funk of it. Cheers and happy holidays! _ Trap
2013.11.09 11:03 katihathorAdvice on being a good role-model for my 11-year old niece? (wall-of-text)
I'm a 35yr old woman who is child-free. On some levels I do have some maternal instincts just not to the degree that I want my life to revolve around creating new life. I "make babies" in the form of my artistic pursuits (the way previously "started a family" in my entrepreneurial pursuits)…I literally tend to refer to the project I'm working on at the time as one of "my babies" and use those biological nurturing skills to take ideas and turn them into tangible things. That being said, I would like to influence the younger generation positively. My step sister is a decade younger than me and has five daughters. I love my sis but frankly she's a bad role-model. We were both raised mormon but I managed to escape it, while she ended up getting pregnant...multiple times from multiple guys. :O She just moved back in with my parents because she decided she wasn't in love with her husband anymore and just up and left him kind of on a whim so my parents are stuck dealing with her and the kids. She shelters her daughters because even though she's a hypocrite and doesn't seem to actually believe in or follow the mormony stuff more than superficially, that is all she knows, so she is easily swayed by the role that they project onto her and doesn't see it as important to become independent rather than expecting her current bf or hubby take care of her. Since she's living with my parents then we're in close proximity again so I can see her closer to monthly instead of yearly or longer. I've come to realize that her eldest daughter, the 11-year old, is really craving a quality role model of some kind and is looking for direction. My niece really looks up to me a whole lot and genuinely appreciates and listens to my advice. I feel like I resonate really well with her, because at her age I didn't know what I didn't know. On the very rare occasions when I got to see my great-aunt and her wife it really helped me a lot just even knowing there were other perspectives for women out there…that wasn't my lifestyle either but it was so different from mormon perspective that it really enlightened me. So on some level I feel a sense of responsibility to be that person for my niece; the aunt who shows her that there is in fact life outside of the mormon bubble. She doesn't have a smartphone or access to the internet, save perhaps whatever terminals they might have set up at her school library. She doesn't really watch TV, and whatever she watches is vetted. In some ways that really sucks because she's so sheltered, but in other ways it's an opportunity because if she finds a passion now she won't have all these distractions keeping her from focusing on it. She is actually now living in the same room I grew up in (although sharing it with her sister). She is an avid reader and she told me she read all the books in her school library and any money she gets she usually ends up buying books...which mirrors me at her age; there was no internet back then so for me learning about stuff consisted of going to the library and reading as much as I could about the topics I found interesting. I'm not really sure what she's into besides reading fiction and occasionally playing sports at school. As sheltered as she is in some ways, she's not being indoctrinated much the way I was at her age. She just has a lot of excess energy and doesn't get enough attention from adults because she's competing with four younger siblings (which is also similar to my circumstances growing up as the oldest sibling) She begged me to load up her mp3 player with some music that doesn't suck (which in her mind is Justin Bieber or Rachel Black since her friends talk about them). So I'm taking that as an opportunity to be subversive and subtly push my agenda, in a way that neither my sis nor my parents get upset about. Essentially I want to give her the tools she needs to arrive at similar conclusions that I did, that she has options and that she can reach for the stars, and should try to find a passion and focus her energies on it, whatever that passion may be. I'm not going to tell her not to get married or start a family or to even to leave the religious BS behind...I just want to plant the notion in her head that she doesn't have to let her environment prevent her from finding a passion in life. So if she decides she wants to go to school or pursue a career path she can find the resolve within herself to pursue those goals, when it's likely that her mom will be rather apathetic since she never saw those things as important. So I have this window of opportunity to where I feel like I can make a difference, because once puberty hits and hormones start distracting her, I don't want her to end up being like her mom and getting preggers because subconsciously she's conditioned to that reality and doesn't know any better. I definitely don't want her thinking that she has to depend on a guy to take care of her; she comes off as very independent and I want to ignite that spark further so it doesn't get suppressed. I haven't figured out what books to recommend since it's hard to remember reading anything in particular that influenced me at that age. But I do want to fill up her mp3 player with lots of female-empowerment kind of songs that have a good positive message to build her self-esteem before the inevitable puberty/teenage hell. Here are some of the ones that came to mind so far:
Christina Aguilera - Soar
Ace of Base - Beautiful Life
Des'ree - You Gotta Be
India Arie - Beautiful Flower
Kaskade - Don’t Stop Dancing Girl
Katy Perry - Firework
Natasha Bedingfield - Unwritten
Popstars On Stage Allstars - Never Give Up
Bob Sinclair - Love Generation
The Brand New Heavies - Brother Sister
Unfortunately her hand-me-down mp3 player sucks and I can't afford to get her another one so I only have one gig to work with…however that sure is a lot better than anyone could have done for me at her age. She has some hearing problems and used to wear a hearing aid and may have had surgery or speech therapy or something…she seems fine now, but I think that the best bet is stuff with lyrics that are pretty easy to follow. As a musician I really would love to expose her to all sorts of music so she knows she has more options than the billboard top 50 but I'm not entirely sure if she can hear all the frequency ranges necessary appreciate the nuances in certain styles.

We have here a Canadian tween pop sensation with 24 music videos and 3 studio albums. Needless to say nothing is wrong with that picture. Rising from the media ruins that is youtube in other countries, Justin Bieber would become one of the world's most sought after Tiger Beat cover models, as well as one of the world's least respected individuals. A man, his music, a monkey. -Youtube Career Justin Bieber's career began after he was "discovered" by talent agent Scooter Braun. Legend has it that Braun accidentally clicked on a video of Justin covering Ne-Yo (statistically the worst artist ever for a white child to cover acoustically) and was certain that this Canadian would validate his career as a "Talent Agent" (An occupation traditionally used as an alibi for witness protection, superheros, dropouts, ect.) Braun quickly contacted Bieber's mother, who, because Justin wasn't of T-videogame-age, was in charge of most of his scheduling. Justin's mother was initially against the idea of letting Braun sign her son because Braun was a Jew, and not a follower of Christ After praying to God for a while, he didn't answer. So she had to, like any good Christian, go talk to an actual entity. Her church leaders convinced her that she had gone full retard and to let Justin pursue his opportunity, even if a Jew was in charge. No other artist has a rise story so filled with anti-semitism, divine intervention, and commercial success. Oh yeah, I forgot Hitler. Despite the similarity, Justin's first single One Time has been bought 2,132,000 times by people all around the world, while Mien Kampf only sold 240,000 copies by war's end. This clear outdoing reaffirms a common belief that Justin is a newer, better Hitler. -My World After the success of his first single, the world was moist and waiting for a big, fat album to penetrate into the music scene. My World was met with clear commercial reception, selling 137,000 copies in it's first week. While this was a stunning record for the year, the streak was immediately broken by the release of Susan Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream, proving that nothing sells better that everyone underestimating you because you are old and ugly. The album was rated 3 stars by Rolling Stone, scoring slightly higher than Astralwerk's Ice on the Dune, or Empire of the Sun, or whatever the fuck. -My World 2.0 Justin's second album My World 2.0 is titled so jerkoffly titled because it was the originally unplanned second part of his debut release. Conspiracy theorists believe that My World's platinum status had something to do with the direction the artist took. -Under the Mistletoe Of course, what respectable artist can not make a christmas album (Pink Floyd, The Police, [The Beatles actually did do this] George Gershwin, Gwar, end of list). This Mp3 of poetry contains verses so elaborately constructed, only Canadian poetry experts fully understand what they are listening to. A sample for the children. You leave some cookies out, Imma eat em all. Nobody can see me but you, It's so magical. Yes Justin, is is magical. This track, Christmas Eve is one of the few songs that Justin holds any percent of the songwriting credit. Lets wrap this music discussion up and transition over to the more important things, like Bieber's personal beliefs and family life. -Religion and Politics Bieber is a Christian. He claims to have a strong relationship with Jesus (although they've never been seen in public) and to talk to him personally. Bieber believes that abortion is murder, and that you should have to be in love to have sex. Justin has made comments in support of Canada's healthcare system and comments in criticism of America's healthcare system. Following these comments America's healthcare system reformed to be more like that of Canada. Bieber erroneously believes that he is an African, despite his pasty mug and public opinion. -Relationships Justin has had one public relationship with Family Wizard Selena Gomez. This relationship was likely brought to an end by Bieber's fathering of an illegitimate child, a claim for which there is no evidence.
This mix is almost entirely made up of house remixes of current Top 40 hits, with a few popular "real" dance music songs thrown in. Transition times can be found in Mixcloud timestamps. Pros: Harmonic mixing Cons: Some of the transitions are a little sloppy. All feedback/constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated. I've only been DJing for a little over a year, so I would really enjoy hearing your comments and advice. I hope you like it! -DJ MaRy Melodic Listen on Mixcloud: http://www.mixcloud.com/RyanM24/car-wash-2013-mix/ Download from Dropbox: dropbox.com/sh/kgwc4z6r19b4qwi/c6rO80NQaO/Car%20Wash%20Mix%20mp3.mp3 Track List:
Yes, but I can't name names. We never do on principal. I can say at country awards shows it's usually about 2/3rds pre-tracked except for lead vocals. It's much less in the rock world. I've heard only 3 bands are using tracks tonight.
Last time we had a show with usher he had tons of laptops running. 3 keyboard players onstage and not even one of them even bothered to mime playing that 2 note intro.
Electronic aids is pretty vague. There are plenty of drum machines playing click tracks in our ears...ear monitors could be considered electronic aid.
There's definitely a machismo to playing live as opposed to doing the milli-vanilli. But pre-recording means you get paid twice...for the performance and the recording, so they kinda win that way.
Dave matthews came offstage at an award show and his response when we complimented him was (approximate quote) "I almost shat my pants I was so scared". We thought somebody with his experience still being that moved by it was awesome.
Miranda is definitely one who thrives on the performance. sometimes you have to reassure the producers that it will pick up for the real show. I feel that for sure. The stakes get high and I get lost in the fun of the moment. I liken it to mountain biking. It forces you to be as focused on the moment as you are capable of. Seeing Pink doing pushups and jumping around like a badass just before she hit the stage at iHeartRadio was awesome to see. However you feel about a star's music sometimes you can't deny the energy and entertainment they provide live.
We often get lectured on being careful because we represent Miranda's name...but it truly is funny how much people exaggerate when celebrities have messups. I have a little inside info on that one: The driver for one of the crew busses, probably full of technicians that never even interact with dave, decided to dump his toilet illegally...it smells awful when they get full and sometimes the drivers are too lazy to find a truck stop to empty the shitter properly. Years ago I stepped in a stream of pee from Miranda's bus when her driver dumped on the desert roadside right when I was walking up barefoot to check on another crew member...pee mud, ugh. I boiled my foot. Anyways, going over a river on a grated bridge seems like a sneaky place to dump without getting caught. But the decision had nothing to do with Dave himself...I'm sure he was asleep on another bus miles in front or on a jet. And I'm sure that driver was a good man who got fired over a careless decision. Still, it makes fun enough headline that people latch on to and don't care about details.
Everything I've heard about Frank Ocean paints him as one of the nicest people on the planet. His dressing room isn't far from ours, maybe I'll try for a fiver. Last time I saw the bieb's he was flanked by 4 bodyguards who tensed up when we said hi. It's fun being an unknown backstage because the celebrities always say hi back in case you might be somebody they should know.
It seems like rock is going through an 80's sounding phase but with more modern and tasteful production. Keyboards are suddenly cool again. #1 songs may not have an acoustic instrument but they are far from say AHA. I don't really follow pop though.
It seems to be going through a hair-metalish phase. A lotta drop D loaded with distortion. Country is more rock than it's ever been. It's growing in popularity and I think that's a good thing. Good music will always be made, what sells or gets radio play in a given year is not directly related. I'm a fan of more songwriterish stuff.
No, the Chris Kline of Bioshock fame is not me but I've been meaning to invite him out to a show. I've seen him on youtube and he is a shredding guitar player. As a CS majomusician he gives me a nerd boner. Also I loved bioshock.
He's definitely the most famous Chris Kline unless you count Chris Klein of American Pie fame (I've gotten so many funny emails meant for him). But there are literally hundreds of us on facebook last I checked.
It's one of those John Smith kind of names... hundreds on Facebook. There's another Chris Kline I know of who is a drummer. We grew up in the same city, went to the same college, have the same middle initial... We easily spent 2 decades in the same city and somehow never met. But I thought it would be cool to track down all the CK musicians and make an album. Of course, people would just think it's a Hunter Hayes kind of thing.
I saw plenty of funny things happen and I love to tell stories, but as a high-school nerd the word "gossip" makes me think of degrading somebody for entertainment and I'm really not into that. As far as fun little details involving celebs: Kelly Clarkson was still going on about getting stuck on Miranda when she made her way back to the dressing rooms just after her grammy. Miranda later said Kelly was not the first or last person to get stuck on her dress...it was an accident waiting to happen with every hug and many a faux diamond was lost.
It's all about incognito mode if you want unbiased results, and it still might use your IP region. The kind of tailor made results and advertising that goes on with your average google search is a little creepy.
We did the grammy's a couple of years ago so not crazy jitters...but we were a little shaky at rehearsals so there is a little danger factor.
No...playing a sold out wrigley field with paisley felt biggemore significant.
We are combining 2 bands for a medley,,,lots of musicians onstage who haven't jammed together much playing through quickly built ear mixes.. it's a bit like walking a tightrope together but we try to relax and remember to have fun.
I'm playing B3 on a song with no B3 so im completely improvising...I've been changing up some inversions on the fly...just feeling it out. I'm not the sort of musician who knows exactly what I'm going to play but there's not too much wiggle room when just padding some big chords.
Dat dress... i hope it's not too sexist to recount my most special 53rd grammy rehearsal experience. We sat out in the empty audience seats while the rest of the bands rehearsed. Katy Perry had a bubble machine going during the rehearsals which put out smoke filled bubbles everywhere. They looked really cool, caught the light, and made little smoke poofs when they popped. But they popped a lot and the dancers started slipping on the pools of soap. After the song she announced into the mic that it was too slippery and they couldn't dance with the floor that way. As she demonstrated to the producer how the bubbles made them slip she lost her balance for real... and to catch herself she had to double over in a full forward fold with her ass to the audience. She was wearing a very short skirt and very thin underwear. I'll be in my bunk.
He is effortlessly funny. It's not just for the camera. He could easily be a comedian for a living in an alternate universe where he didn't play country. He's a kind soul as well...Its that certain honesty that goes hand in hand with being a comedian. If he has a bad side I haven't seen it.
Staring at seated celebrities instead of wild fans is way different...and occasionally a camera gets in your face and you have to pretend its not messing with you. I intentionally don't wear my contacts so I don't space out looking at say Elton John or Jack White.
We will be backstage gherming after we play. We stand by the stage exit and say hi to the celebs as they pass...it's tons of fun.
Of course! I think most stars don't think of themselves as stars unless they buy into the ego trip. And as much as people love shitting on celebs, the majority of them get to where they are by having an amazing talent. At awards shows stars bump into each other in the hall constantly and as they are walking away you will hear them saying stuff like "OMG that was amazing". It's kind of a mutual admiration society (older than facebook)... and I think that's half the purpose of putting all the dressing rooms in close proximity. Miranda loves Beyonce and was giddy to talk to her. Dierks looked like Mcauley Caulkin saying "yes" to himself after talking to Steve Martin at the ACM's, it was sweet to see. Dave Grohl seemed excited to talk to everybody, but I think he's just the human equivalent of a happy puppy.
As a band we pretty much did that. Nobody came up with anything relevant to say besides "we loved your performance" so the awkward small-talk came to an end with him walking away saying "see you around Nashville".
In retrospect some good ice-breakers would have been "We are guys from the rock world playing in the Nashville scene...we love what you're doing there...You'd be welcome to jam with us anytime (you never know)."...but no, instead we hosted our own little Chris Farley show.
I doubt I'll get any camera time...and there's no way for me to know if they do have me in a shot. I wore a reddit pin for many of the country award shows we've done but they are psycho abour not allowing logo's onstage at the grammy's.
Oh jeez, yes a few times. Never sober. Everybody thinks they are clever signing me up for a miranda karaoke song. The thing is I sing all her songs for soundcheck every day so I'm very experienced with performing them. But this one time I was in hell when Blake's sister secretly voluteered me to take over for the pianist at a crowded piano bar and play Kerosene. This was downtown little rock after a concert so it was packed with fans. I had never actually played the song on anything but harmonica and I was unsure of the chords or how it could even be done with a piano. I mouthed to Miranda "help me" but it was too late to let the bar down. The bar crowd ended up being so noisy that nobody minded me searching for a few chords and lines...but I still catch flack from Blake's sister for not knowing all the words. We ended up getting escorted from the bar to the busses later by a team of 4 mounted police.
Sort of. I post my new songs to chriskline.com/mp3 when I finish them... But I got this gig after I was finally crushed enough by the harsh reality that is the music industry...and started looking for work as a side-man. I've been kicking around getting involved in the Nashville songwriting scene but I'm mostly a rock guy and the one point everybody makes about country these days is it doesn't need more people trying to dress up rock songs as country songs.
Nobody cares about the art you nurture and birth to the world. Also, nobody will tell you if your art simply isn't original or passionate enough to be interesting... You just get ignored until you can bring warm bodies into clubs or sell records. Then everybody wants a piece whether it's good or not. Also, it takes money to make money... The day of the starving artist getting discovered is over.
I do think girls should find more things like band instruments or science fun, but american culture just doesn't reward these sorts of activities right now...it's all about popularity and fun. Don't get me started. But the cool nerd does seem to be making a comeback lately.
"The hang" is so important. And we had so many revolving crew positions when we were a Texas based band... hiring friends and friends of friends to tune the guitars and such...but somewhere between 2008 & 2010 it got so big that we hired mostly nashville professional technicians, which is a professional pool that just isnt as big in texas. To put it another way, we outgrew the supply of TX touring professionals. Now we are such a well oiled organization that suggesting a friend for a position would just be laughed off if that friend hasn't already proven themselves in the hellfire that is the touring industry. There were too many people at the shows to just stop things and say "sorry, the guitar tech put the capo on the wrong fret", as happened from time to time in our clubbier days. People expect a bigger, tighter production once thousands start showing up for the show.
It's important to note that the texas region is big enough that it has its own country market that is often at odds with "nashville country". Bigger Texas bands never have to stray far from Texas to make enough money to support themselves. But if you want to play arenas you have to make it to a national market and Texas alone can't provide that...it's a hard or impossible transition for many southern country/rock bands. Once you become a nationally famous band the Texas markets might reject you for not being Texas enough. These are very vague generalizations but my point is that the nashville vs. texas tension is quantifiable.
It's all who you know basically...networking, networking, networking. Having enough talent only puts you on the field, not in the game.
I record my own songs for fun and have the occasional session, but my touring (and insecurity about my skills) keeps me from any regular studio work. Also, producers in Nashville generally have sets of musicians they prefer working with.
Before I moved to nashville, which is geographically convenient, I was gone more days than I was home. We worked it out to 191 days on the road in 2009. Now it's mostly Wednesday evening through Sunday morning and back home. On a normal day I roll out of bed, sing a few songs for soundcheck, work out or work on songs, pretty myself up, then rock out for 90 minutes...and usually have some fun after the show until we roll to the next city in the wee hours.
I haven't worked with anybody as big as Miranda except in Miranda-related events.. I got to back up Fogerty when he joined us onstage. I got to trade vocals with Carrie Underwood while standing in for ML at a rehearsal. I got to jam with Charlie Daniels once and he tossed me a solo. Paul Shaffer wanted me to do a solo on Honky Tonk Woman at a Letterman commercial break...but I didn't see his gesture...when he told me later all I could say was "wow" and froze up like a giddy little girl. We have Blake join us every now and then. Dierks, Paisley, Urban, whomever Miranda happens to be jamming a song with on a given night. I almost forgot: I played keys on Will Hoge's latest single "Song Nobody Will Hear"
She treats us like family. We are a band and we love being that way. She's said we should get our own name, but we never play as a group without her. I'm still the new guy after more than 6 years. She likes us being able to roll with situations on the fly and not clam up when shit goes wrong. Bands that don't really know each other are more susceptible to train wrecks without that trust. We've finished out playing unplanned songs, the wrong song we started but played anyways, capo's being in the wrong place so we transpose on the fly, jamming until the microphone can be fixed, or when she wants to talk...that sort of stuff.
I had piano lessons as a kid and a teenager but I didn't really fall in love with music until I could learn songs I loved on guitar. I had the odd guitar lesson here and there but nothing consistant. University of Texas' music program was very old school: Jazz or Classical only. But I took studio engineering classes at Austin Community College in the 90's. I ran a music studio and played with local bands for next to nothing for years until I got this gig.
In the current set Over You is my favorite because I get to play a prominant guitar part, sing a big harmony, and swell an organ note in and out with my feet.
I absolutely love Fine Tune but we never play it because the crowd gives us blank stares. It's not very country. I miss Crazy Ex Girlfriend too because the B3 part is wacky but she's been tired of that one for a while.
She gets choked up and lets the crowd sing sometimes. It's about the same with House That Built Me...she didn't write it but she's internalized it. As far as Blake, that's not something I know or would ask about...but I can say he has been side of stage at plenty of shows when she sang it and spoke about it's significance beforehand.
I sang. I was not as confidant about it as I was at rehearsals...not as clear an ear mix but there are a million possible reasons for that. Hopefully didn't muff any notes, I haven't heard it yet.
Did you mean Beyonce'? If you're going to pick on an entertainer for prioritizing entertainment over a live display of musicianship then put it in an envelope and mail it to madonna in the 80's...nothing has changed. Ill bet if Beyonce' thought she could relate more to her crowd by strumming an acoustic and singing with a bluegrass band around a single microphone she could pull it off. Just my impression of her. I didn't see the inauguration but I'm guessing it was enough of a formality rather than her regular crowd having a good time that she might have said "fuck it, let's run the vocal track tonight". Or maybe she had a cold. I don't know why I'm defending her, she just seems like she genuinely cares about music and has talent... and that's good enough for me.
Absolutely, it's the most fun part. Last time I got to make a fool of myself with Neil Patrick Harris, Jamie Foxx, Usher, Gwennyth Paltrow, Beyonce', Polly Peret, said hi to the beibs. I invited NPH to go get "a sandwich"...I'm pretty sure he was very unamused but he was nice about the gag. Usher held my hand for about 10 seconds when the crowd pushed in...he looked back and presumably realized I wasn't his bodyguard and let go without any explanation. Jamie Foxx loves Miranda's music and recognized us from the performance...he approached US which was awesome! I hope this year is as exciting as the 53rd was!
The term "session musican" means staying in town and recording in studios to me, not filling in on the road. For the most part the nashville recording clique is seperate from the touring clique. I haven't tried to break in. I'm a bit insecure about my abilities in the studio...I lean more towards the showman side.
Miranda's songwriting process? No. I do hole up in the back lounge and write songs while we're on the road but that's just my own thing. She gives us rough mixes as the albums are in progress so we can have the songs ready to play before the album is released. We often make nashville chord charts to get started and Keith always writes drum charts, but the songs are always quickly memorized. It's all done by listening. We use our own best judgement as a band on how to translate studio parts to a live performance by a 6 piece band. We're very against using tracks to have a slick production in the live show.
Well, nobody can tour FOREVER! I hope to get involved in the songwriting scene so I can continue to pay my bills with music and not computer skillz...it's just more fun. Although I do enjoy programming, I enjoy it much more when it's not for a company that I am not attached to..I like hobby programming like VST plugins and the Reaper SWS extensions i'm playing around with.

'First Post' was actually really irritating to me, because there would be a dozen or more of them on many articles. This made the REAL discussion a significant hunk of scroll away to read.
A number of users wrote bots designed to get the First Post, which created a lot of unnecessary load on our servers in an era when we were pretty starved for resources.
We solved that for a few years by writing a script that posted an automatic 'First Post' to stories before readers actually saw it. And then a few minutes later, we would remove the robot created post.
This worked for awhile, but then readers started noticing comments were disappearing, and the system was explicitly designed to never delete a comment... but by then the 'First Post' game had died down, and the moderation system became highly effective at sending them down to Score:-1 almost immediately.
I was sad because so much of Kuro5hin in the early days was built around hostility towards Slashdot. I had no problem with someone building a competitor- but didn't have to be so venomous. I remember symlink, but not very strongly. I wish Slashdot the best- I still think that the editorial guys are finding a number of good stories per day. A casual tech person can still use it as a good Cliff Notes of the tech space.
Remember that I had run Slashdot for 14 years. I had watched countless corp re-orgs. Numerous executives coming and going. And what felt like a perennial round of layoffs. I had been ready to leave for a few years, but I had a couple of kids and didn't want to be job hunting with a pregnant wife.
A year before i left, several of my friends were let go (including Jeff "Hemos" Bates) in a particularly brutal round of layoffs. For a time, Slashdot had a single engineer (the long suffering Tim Vroom!). I stayed, fearful that new hands would end the site.
But what became clear is that I was ultimately damaged by the last year. I wasn't happy doing the work any more. Management and I had a different vision for what Slashdot was meant to be: I'm not saying that their version of the site was BAD, but it really wasn't the site I had been trying to run for all these years.
We were originally purchased by Andover.net, and I honestly didn't feel anything significant change for awhile. They served the ads, we produced the site. Over time they increasingly helped with engineering, HR, ops etc. It was pretty ideal. It wasn't until a couple years later where things started changing.
If GeekNet offered to sell it to me for $1, I'd consider it... but I imagine they think it is worth far more! I'm not working on anything directly that you can see. But little bits and pieces of my work is trickling out. I'm sure the Labs guys have their own opinions, but I'd like to think I've had some small influence on the plans for the Washington Post Social Reader for example.
Windows Support, replacing the mechanical wheel with the static one, the original iTunes was really a mess, and the iTunes Store. Also making it just a few gigs bigger let me fit my entire library. That helped too ;)
I imagine I could talk Hemos & Nate into doing it if there was a reason to... but we're all amazingly busy. Nate has a startup. Jeff travels back and forth across this country every other week. And I am working plenty hard at the post. Getting 3 people in a room for 90 minutes a week is tricky when you're as mobile as we are. The funny thing is that now that podcasting and home studio recording is so easy, we could do it now for virtually nothing. It's just a matter of scheduling.
Communities tend to cycle: as they grow, commercial interests try to shape it. Reddit might be the exception: they've held closely to a minimalist aesthetic and avoided commercial influence. But their success has rendered the homepage pretty mediocre. THe sub-reddits are where the action is. So to a certain extend, Reddit's greatest success was containing the chaos in one giant swimming pool, and letting the cool kids hide just barely out of site.
Data is just data. When I ran Slashdot, I logged everything I practically could because without it, I couldn't make informed decisions.
What corporations DO with that data will pretty much define the future of the internet. I don't think people truly understand the implications.
The biggest databases- things like Facebook and Google could be used in so many awful ways. But I collected all the data I possibly could too, and I really tried to impress upon everyone I worked with the RESPONSIBILITY that this data entails. Like, just because you gave me your email address is not permission for me to sell it or spam you.
I hope that the giants play nicely. I want the cool shiny things they make... and I'll give them the benefit of the doubt in most cases.
Slashdot was owned by GeekNet, which is a publicly traded company with fiduciary obligations, and a CEO beholden to a board and shareholders. I always made my opinions clear, and worked with them in mind. But I could be over-ruled. I always fought for what I believed in. If anything, I probably fought to hard since it really affected me at a personal level. I still like the approach of the original Slashdot: no bullshit. honesty. disclosure. personal. I don't see a need to build a website to continue that tradition today... you can follow me on G+ as +Rob Malda and on twitter as @cmdrtaco and on Link to cmdrtaco.ne and get the same general stuff from me without all the overhead.
I truthfully do miss the old days (although the Alpha technically never lived in my bedroom! It was under my desk at my employers... serving double duty as an SMTP/Web Server). I will never again work that hard- from the moment I woke up until the moment I fell asleep. And it was ultimately amazingly satisfying interacting with so many cool people. Many of whom I still see on Google+ +Rob Malda and on twitter @cmdrtaco so join them!
I love G+. And anyone who doubts it should follow me. I share good links, and get interesting discussions. Twitter is just to fragmented for my tastes. It works, but it's just not directed enough.
G+ is largely a ghost town, but I have a few thousand followers that actually have something to say. I'm not Robert Scoble or Justin Bieber, so I get to have meaingful feedback and discussion. I love G+. Seriously.
2) We lost for a number of reasons- but mostly I think it comes down to having a working machine that couldn't easily change. Reddit & Digg both brought new ideas to the space, and Slashdot couldn't simply change into those sites without changing what IT was. You dance with the date who brought you.
3) Enough to take a lot of time off if I need it. Not enough to put my kids through college and retire.
There were several moments- very high on the list was a few months in when we ran a poll question asking 'How many shots should Kurt Drink?' (Kurt was our roommate, and eventually the Blockstackers hlegal guy). The poll had hundreds of votes within a few hours.
I think I somewhat addressed this elsewhere, but for me it's more practical than ideological: the deeper into the system you go, the more open it should be. The more components that depend on a sub-system, the more open it should be.
This is necessary to make it possible for us to hack out the next generation, and to prevent us from all getting locked into crap.
Quitting was harder than selling it. I really hoped that i could work there forever. The sale of the site was really structured to make that possible. But 14 years changed me, GeekNet, and Slashdot in unexpected ways.
I primarily only read Slashdot now as an RSS feed. When I use the site natively, I start mentally making a list of things that need to be fixed or changed. And then I get a bit grumpy that I can't do anything about it.
The joke name was mine. I actually had a desktop that I named 'slashdot' back in the dorm rooms a couple years before I registered the DNS. And if ICANN approves the .DOT TLD, I better damn well get dibs on slashdot.dot so I can have Link to slashdot.org as my homepage!
The thing that made me sad was that Slashdot was meant for a very tiny group of people... unfortunately, that group of people was almost entirely already online in the late 90s. As the internet grew, our user base remained roughly the same!
It was incredibly awkward, and almost totally meaningless.
To be fair, it was nice to have a place to hang out and read email and chat with a few friends. Conferences are kinda boring otherwise.
Mostly tho, it seemed to me that we did these just to show advertisers that we were legit, and that we had lots of readers.
For me, I got a lot of really good feedback from people. I learned what people like, and what they didn't. When people hate you, they write you angry email. WHen they like you, they don't say anything. So we'd get a lot of honest information from people who just happened to walk by and recognize our logo.
But hells yes, it was awkward. I'm an introvert. After hour 3 I just wanted to hide in a cave.
At some point, it became clear that we needed 100x the hardware and bandwidth and many more employees to run things smoothly. The choice was to finance ourselves, or find a company that had infrastructure to help us scale.
It seemed easier at the time: Find a company that already had an HR department, already had racks of servers, already had a few hundred megabits of bandwidth and a couple of sysadmins and some ad sales guys.
I was really interested in building SLASHDOT, but I wasn't all that interested in building the support infrastructure necessary to hold it. What did I know about hiring a corp attorney? Ya, know?
Slashdot lags slower, but maintains a more consistent tone. You can read 25 Slashdot stories and get a good grasp of the world. Or you can read hundreds of Reddit articles, get mostly the same information, but it would require substantially more effort to weed through the noise.
I still have to read 300-500 headlines per day to find the dozen stories I think are worth reading each day. So far, no site has achieved that for me. I live in Google Reader.
I had to leave. It hurt more than I could ever explain. It ripped my guts to do it. But I wasn't happy any more. I no longer could see a future for the site I wanted to run. And it was eating me up inside. Eventually it ate right through and spilled back out.
My friends knew it. My wife knew it. I'm glad I left before my kids knew it too. I know that not everyone gets to work in a job they love... but nobody should work a job that actually makes them emotionally hurt. And by the end, that was where I was.
I was never able to separate "Slashdot" from "Rob". Quitting was the only way.
I wasn't forced out. I could have stayed. But it would have cost me other things.
If I try to register on a system that has been around for awhile, it's very likely taken. If I care (Twitter, Reddit) I can usually find a sympathetic admin to help me (Thanks Erik!). Else I just register something else and grumble.
It's been really great. I work with a bunch of really smart people, and on interesting problems. And more than just tech, there's a giant newsroom filled with passionate journalists who obsess with so many of the same things that I always did.
Finding a home where I would have the opportunity to write was important to me. I had other options, but this just felt right. But if you had told me that I would land at a newspaper 5 years ago, I would have laughed.
Someday I should probably write out the evolution of our mod system just so people understand why I made the design decisions I did. Basically we started with friends, and expanded the circle slowly. Eventually the circle got big enough that we couldn't trust everyone. I also learned that people get bored and squander or ignore their powers.
We tweaked most numbers in the system pretty extensively over the years. Even that 5 mod point number was subject to experiment. Some users got more!
See this is a classic case of someone not thinking about the big picture: Sure, that happens. Yup, it's annoying. But how often is it ACTUALLY an issue? Score:4 comments are relatively rare. Mod points are rare. The act of modding a 4 to a 5 is VERY rare. So the system loses what, 1% of mod points to this terrible tragedy? The system used to lose 50% of mod points on weekends to people not reading on SUNDAY. BIG PICTURE! See it!
The second design was just because it was time to make some space on the page for some new features, and to modernize things a bit. The third design was done because people who were paid a lot of money were convinced that it was the right thing to do. I wasn't one of those people. I was more of the if-it-ain't-broke mindset. TONS of effort went into countless versions. I was just happy that the new version wasn't hugely worse than the old one. There were some versions that were just awful.
The meta moderation system blindly showed random moderation acts to people and got their opinions. Comments that deviated from tolerances could be acted upon, and the busted moderators removed. It worked remarkably well for many years.
