Pilots For 9/11 Truth Forum _ Chill _ Chill

Posted by: Sanders Oct 19 2006, 01:36 PM

There are a lot of people here that are what can only be described as, friends. We have been through a lot together.

Sometimes people just want to talk. Thinking and talking about nothing but 9/11 and the government and the world going to s#hit before our eyes makes jack a dull boy. Here we talk about whatever we want. (Within reason, lol !!)

I was a little hesitant about naming this "chill", because there was another place on another board somewhere for the same purpose with the exact same thread title .... but you know what, I can't think of anything better, and, it was I who pegged the name in the first place so I own the freakin' rights biggrin.gif.

Enjoy -

One of my favorite albums is Smashmouth, "Get the Picture". I was out of town and wanted to get ahold of it (I forgot to bring it with me) for reference, for my work (I work in the music business - there was a band I was going to work with and I wanted them to hear that record). So I bought the record again, except it was different - lots of the mixes were different. (!!?WTF??) I have to say, I was not impressed, I think they screwed up a few songs by re-working them (don't fix it if it ain't broken, I always say...) - but, there are a couple of new tracks on the album I hadn't ever heard. And the last track, "Boulevard", is KILLING ME! I can't stop playing it on my laptop as I'm typing. OMG what a great song. Anyone hip to Smashmouth? Listened to that track?

Without revealing too much information (because every good intelligence agent knows not to do that -though I'm sure someone could "find out who I was" if they really wanted to), I'm curious: what is the general age range of the moderators that were kicked off LC and are now posting on this site?

I know that "Painter" said he was in his late 50's. I'm in my 30's.

For those of you in your early 20's, can you ever imagine behaving like Dylan has?

edited to add - if you ever considered emigrating to another country with less ignorant officials/voting public, bear in mind (I learned this yesterday) that many don't accept older individuals, and have cut-off ages (some in the mid-40's, but New Zealand accepts immigrants as old as 56!). I think that if you have $$$, some countries (ie: Switzerland) will waive the age limit.
There's a really good thread about emigration http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=609120

30's

Posted by: Cary Oct 19 2006, 02:31 PM

I'm 52 riptide. Most of the mods and admins who left are in the 30 to 60 range, but I'll let everyone speak for themselves. I have a son who's 23. He's gone through the "rebelion phase" but has calmed down a lot since he turned 21.

Posted by: Sanders Oct 19 2006, 02:56 PM

49

Can't wait to join Cary and painter's club ! (just a few months !!!!)

I think 50 's must rock. I can feel it.

Posted by: Cary Oct 19 2006, 03:14 PM

LOL Yeah, right. Just wait till you hit the 50's. I'll try to find Bill Cosby's bit about turning 40 and then turning 50. The body just doesn't do what it used to do.

Posted by: Sanders Oct 19 2006, 03:25 PM

Cary, you just gotta go out and DANCE

Chicks love older guys like us, especially if they see our hearts are young - like ours undoubtedly are ohmy.gif

I'm 22, and no I could never imagine acting like Dylan has. Granted I've never been close to the situation he's in but I feel that does not matter. Everyone at all points in their lives must stop, evaluate and make sure that they are treating the people around them the way they would like to be treated. That's called "maturity" and it comes with age. It shouldn't take till you're 30, 40 or even 50... I learned that when I was feckin' 10 for pete's sake.

You should always respect your elder's and listen to what they have to say. It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with them, you'll always learn something from it. If you’re smart enough you should take the disagreements you have and learn from them, "what not to do". There's always something to take from people that are more experienced and wise.

The glass is ALWAYS half-full.




Just my thoughts.

Method, I thought you were about 36. Ahhhh, the mind of a 36 year old in the virile body of a 22 year old. MORE COWBELL PLEASE !!!!!!!!! I just GOTTA have more COWBELL !

HAHAHAHAHAHA

22 !???? You rock, dude.

Forty is like a defeat. Fifty is an accomplishment!

Posted by: Sanders Oct 19 2006, 04:20 PM

SCREW the Gradpa thang... I spent today dancing and jumping up and down like a schoolgirl recording a song called (in Japanese) "Kimi to Fruits" (you and fruit). SWEAR TO GOD ! Jumping up and down the whole day, dancing to "You and fruit". At 49. And I'm just finding my stride.

50's here I come - LOOK OUT !!!!!

Posted by: Sinewy Oct 19 2006, 05:13 PM

I am 28. Maturity is more socio-culturally enhanced I believe. Through out my experiences, many people abroad who are in their teens are more mature when compared to adults in their 20s and 30s here in USA.

Posted by: Sanders Oct 19 2006, 05:28 PM

SINEWY !!!!!

I was thinking about you today !

I was thinking about some things I wanted to post, but was not up to the task, and thought, if only Sinewy was around to help me out...

Good to see you, my friend !

Yeah, but you have to be able to dance for that to happen. LOL I remember back in my college days. My younger sister showed up at a frat event my fraternity had. I never saw her, but she told my mother that I looked like I graduated from the King Kong School of Dance. Yeeha.

Oh yeah. Great to see you here Sinewy. Glad you made the jump.

Posted by: Sanders Oct 19 2006, 05:38 PM

When you hit your 50s, it doesn't matter if it looks anything like dancing - just hop around like you don't give a crap. Key word - I'm in my 50's and I DON'T GIVE A CRAP, WOOHOO!

Posted by: Cary Oct 19 2006, 05:41 PM

LMFAO!! Okay, "make a fool of myself" time next time I get near a dance floor. The wife will be pissed, but that's kinda normal.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Damn glad you're here bud.

Just turned 46 a few days ago - and I am not sure, if many of the teens here in Europe are more mature then yours' over there. They (still) might have some advantage re education in public schools.
But we are catching up rapidly…

Posted by: mo fiya Oct 20 2006, 08:58 PM

hey sanders, im curious about what your best accomplishments are in your music work. like i told you before, i also produce and engineer music (self taught), and i would personally love to accomplish at least SOMETHING big before this world finally goes to sh*t. i exclusively work with hip hop, although i love many types of music. i have a real shot at this, too. i work with some very good artists and my local buzz is very strong. i have people practically beating down my door to work with me, and i am no where NEAR as good as i could be. its been tough on me since my apartment fire back in the summer, i've had the whole thing on hold since then. i kind of needed the break anyway, and with my girlfriend getting pregnant, and helping her with her 3 year old daughter, i'm literally exhausted. but barring a really crazy winter, politically-wise, or even year for that matter, i plan on making these upcoming months all about my music again. anyway, let me stop rambling and ask the original question again in case you forgot...what is your biggest accomplishment with your music?

Posted by: ICE420 Oct 22 2006, 12:34 AM

37 ,

Posted by: Carl Bank Oct 27 2006, 08:24 AM

I'm 69 (model-year) and that means this are 'feld' 29 years.

So, at my 30th birthday, i started to add a letter to 29.
Toay, I am 29g or 29h, depending on who I am talking to.

I can see no problem in beeing 50 or 60 at all, but i feld some
problems reching this age, when I read about the plans for NWO.

In case, I will not reach 29z or older, will you please tell everyone,
I was younger than i appeared?

Thanks in advance: Carl

hmmmmm ... volume? rolleyes.gif

The thing that kind-of sucks is that equipment keeps getting more and more elaborate, flexible and sophisticated - but sounds worse and worse. People rage about how great records sounded in the 60's and 70's, really it wasn't that hard back then (I started in 1980, just in time for the crappy sounding consoles to come in) to make a good sounding record - you just plugged everything in and hit record - the equipment, the tape, it just sounded like that. To make a record now that has that kind of warmth, punch, etc. is very difficult. I think the recording business is the only industry in the world where yearly technological advancements make it harder and harder for people to do their job (make records that sound good). Every few years some new thing comes along that becomes the new standard and we (engineers, mixers) have to figure out ways to make up for the loss in actual audio quality, cursing and muttering the whole time, lol. <_<

The thing that's great these days, and this addresses the other part of your post, is that anyone can make a record. The home version of pro-tools (the recording/editing software that all the pros use) is only about a thousand dollars I think. You can make records with it.

The only other thing you need is ideas and other people to goof around with.

Posted by: mo fiya Oct 27 2006, 04:26 PM

yeah i've used pro-tools before. i like Acid and Cubase better actually. I got a "hot" version of Acid (if you know what i mean B)) and used that for a while until i tried out Cubase at a different studio where we would go to sometimes, and i liked it so much i purchased it. its a great program. great sounding records to me are in the ears of the beholder. a scratchy, hissy, analog sounding recording can make a certain song better sometimes. its 10% knowledge and 90% creativity most of the time for me. 10% knowledge to know how to use your hardware/software and know your processors, and the rest is your good old ears telling how good or bad it sounds. i love it when i create something the so many other people love. its a great feeling, and i couldn't imagine doing anything else with my life. (besides help save the world, of course)

Posted by: Sanders Oct 27 2006, 05:33 PM

Acid is the S#IT !!!! Acid rocks, IMO !!!!!!!!

I WISH I was using acid - do they have it for mac yet???

Posted by: e-dog Oct 27 2006, 05:42 PM

lol acid pro is great!
Only down-part is that if you have a lot of "layers", it laggs like crazy...
My brother is a rapper and he uses it lol.

Well, I just turned 27 a few weeks ago and now I thinking 30 is coming awfully fast!

Posted by: CrazyBlade Nov 8 2006, 08:01 AM

I turned 30 earlier this year. It's not so bad, to me age is irrelevant - it's how old you feel inside that matters.

Sadly, I feel like a 70 year old inside sometimes lmao.

Ok, seeing as this is the chill section, let me ask a question to you all:

When we're all not knee-deep in this ****, what do you do to relax and kick back?

Me, I'm very much into my music - rock and metal mostly, but I am open. Right now I'm on a real AC/DC trip, got "Thunderstruck" blasting right now. I love movies too, a wide range. I'm a gamer too, although my Myspace says I play XBox 360 and that's a lie, I had to sell it.

sad.gif

Posted by: Method Nov 8 2006, 10:16 AM

I love music. I really only stay away from country and extreme punk. Emo doesn't appeal to me either. Oldies, Rock, Hip-Hop, Classical, to name a few.

I'm a huge movie buff. Historical films and comedies are my 2 favorites.

I used to be big into online gaming but that consumed way to much of my life and I had to get away from that.

I LOVE to read. Historical non-fiction or fiction is right up my alley.

I LOVE beer. I enjoy endulging in different types of beers. I have many favorites.

The woman takes up alot of my time as well. <_< biggrin.gif

Did you see the South Park episode on "World of Warcraft". Hilarious.

Esp. the part when Stan's mom comes up with a load of laundry, asking what's going on, and Stan's father and Stan are like "the World of Warcraft is at stake," and she's like, "It's just a computer game."

Silly boys..

Working on the Library, reading nothing but you-know-what for a week, I think I'm going a little bonkers
