You know... Like how Russia used to have camps for gymnasts and that's all they did all day.

yeah, because the same motor skills should be kept to mastering Call Of Duty 18 on the PS3.

I take it that you don't play an instrument.

i don't agree with any communist ideals but I don't think that the american childhood lifestyle is superior in any way.

The op was stating how the fact of life of these children was "creepy" rather than "cute". So I don't agree with communist ideals but at the same time the capitalist lifestyle is not superior.

North Korea is not a communist country. True communism is the purest form of democracy and North Korea is not democratic.

its probably easier for kids that age to learn to play than for an adult. don't get me wrong, i'm sure it takes some serious effort on their part as well as the instructor(s), but at least they're not bringing a bunch of pre-conceived notions to the table. kinda like the way that peeps who've been to bar-tending college often get turned away from bars that need a new bartender.

I'm kind of new to posting here as seen from my low post count. Sorry for the opened bag of worms...didn't expect to coax everyone into a communist ideal debate.

I got it forwarded in my usual pile of shite mid day emails.

For sure I think those guys are cool and I absolutely respect their skills. I wasn't beating em down. I just can't deny that they super do creep me out a wee bit.

I can't help but wonder if given their origin (again, probably a bit of stereotyping on my part) if they were deprived of a childhood in order to get them: that good on their own, get them jamming together, get their routing spotless. Kids are receptive, but that's a huge effort I would have thought.

But as someone said, if they are smiling and enjoying it, fair play.




Still super creepy in their costumes.

Cheers dude.

I was creeping for a while a few years ago, got an account when I bought my APC the other year then had literally no time to play with it or peruse the forum.

I've now jumped jobs and have time to dust Ableton off.

Should really upgrade from 8.0.9 but kinda scared of what 8.2 may do.


A fairly wank effort at contributing / welcome to the forum...I may just reply to stuff for a few weeks... Walk before Run :roll:
