Yes, there is abuse here at WP. Yes, I've seen who it has come from over the years. No, I have seen NOTHING done about his cavalier, "holier than thou, smarter than thou" attitude. No doubt, he alone has cause A LOT of sensitive folks to leave WP, me included. And yes, he continues to stal...

The Devil All The Time I saw this Tom Holland offering on Netflix last night. It was okay. I only tuned in to it because every review I read said it was ultra violent (it wasn't). In a nutshell, it falls in with a long line of movies where religion is used as a weapon, or whip, to keep people in ch...

When i was 26, I met a 23-year-old Vietnamese guy from a newspaper personal ad in NY. I wasn't attracted to him at all but decided to date him anyway because he liked me. About 6 or 7 months later, because he was getting in the way of me trying to be a professional musician, I told him goodbye over ...

About 10/15 years ago, electronic instrument makers decided, "You know, why create yet another synth to duplicate real sounds. Why not come up with a technology where the musical instrument is real, not just a fabrication?" This led to physical modelling. In effect, when Pianoteq created a...

The Salt Lake Tribune made a mention of his mental episode which, in all actuality, given that he's autistic, was a meltdown - very common with us. Meltdowns, which can be triggered by sensory overload or other various factors, are difficult to deal with even for professionals working in the autisti...

As a musician who've recorded and released songs using real instruments and synthesizers, I'd agree each of them have their own place. I wouldn't use a real drumset, for instance, in an EDM track especially since the genre requires I stick to the well-known 808 or 909 drum sounds. Similarly, i would...

If Rittenhouse goes to prison for murder, and Trump is still in office, chances are he'll pardon the young man. Of course, the president can only pardon someone if their act was a federal offense and murders are usually state offenses. I'll bet Rittenhouse's attorneys might finagle a way to make his...

Land of Mine A Danish war film, or should I say, post-war, as it deals with young captured Nazis who are forced to clear landmines from the beaches of western Denmark. It's fairly brutal, psychologically and physically, at times and will remind you of The Bridge on the River Kwai, To End All Wars, ...

I'm a Black person who votes democratic, but yeah, i thought Biden's comment was insulting. Black people are not the Borg. We don't have a hive mind. Not all of us watch basketball, eat fried chicken and watermelon, listen to the music of Kanye, Jay-Z, Beyonce, or even rap, and many of us are not Ba...

Groundhog Day. I saw this because it was recommended to me. In the end, it wasn't my cup of tea at all. It was cute, just not for me. Rage 2016 Japanese crime thriller/romance/drama/mystery. In the end, it was nothing more than a cinematic cryfest. Cry, cry, cry. That's what was on display, kind of...

In any case, i don't take meds now because i know what triggers me negativ...

Yep. Sounds like bipolar disorder to me. In my down periods, I don't want to do squat but sleep. In my up periods, I've written hundreds of poems, novels, screenplays, songs, etc. I guess it's just something you learn to live with. What helps me is I try my level best to avoid things that can trigge...

The Shining [Director's Cut] I'd seen the regular theatrical version many moons ago then recently acquired this new remastered version after watching its sequel, Doctor Sleep , about two months ago. The film is pretty much what I remember although it seems a bit dated now. Shelley Duvall's open-eye...

You Should Have Left Horror film with Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried. It was worth the price of admission even though I saw it for free on a streaming site. The bluesy millennial version of The Clash's "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" over the end titles was a nice wrap to the film. Overal...

Bloodshot

A Vin Diesel action film. VERY predictable, but then, if I was producing it and spent $50M on it, you can bet your sweet tookus I'd want it as commercial as possible. (Gotta keep my mansion in the Hollywood Hills, you know!)

^ Mandy was pretty good...and colorfully violent. Nicholas Cage played who he plays best - Nicholas Cage.
