^ it doesn't matter. as the thread starter, i am allowed to change my opinion multiple times while never humbling myself or admitting any level of fail, wrong, or D. None of the above.

this is how it's done mang. i learned here at the Ableton forum from people who we're not even allowed to talk about because their level of self is so profound it's like looking directly into the ark of the covenant.

they'll lock this thread if you fuck around. lock, it's like freeze but less cold.

Music is a word. The word has several meanings. It can refer to methods of representation (eg "sheet music"). It can refer to certain sounds generated by musicians, or by machines. The various meanings of the word "music" are referred to a "semantics", which will probably be lost on many non-native speakers of a language.

Music is a phenomenon. It is experienced by (some) humans. The experience of music appears to be a uniquely human ability, possibly derived from the neuronal machinery that allows humans to process speech sounds. Like all psychological phenomena music is poorly understood. Only the unsophisticated will attempt to define it. Yours is a trick question. The biggest fool can ask a question that the wisest person can not answer.

they aren't proper welders anyway because a) i haven't heard of them, 2) they don't weld using the correct code, and iii) riveting is real metalwork :roll:

You folks may pooh pooh the art of the metal fabricator but celebrity welding is the next big thing, riveting is so 19th century.

I know the answer to this one, but you wouldn't understand it because only every other Italian would be able to comprehend the answer. It's a cultural thing.

celebrity welding? what, like welding them together? that i'd pay to see.

although i'd wager the rivet gun would be a popular addition to this forward thinking spectacle.
