Buffett Supports Florida’s Marijuana Initiative

Jimmy Buffett has come out in support of the Make It Legal Florida campaign to legalize recreational marijuana in the Sunshine State: “Pot, weed, marijuana, cannabis — whatever you call it, it’s good medicine,” Buffett says in a video released by the campaign today. “Make it legal.” Make It Legal Florida has received verified 190,000 signatures in support of its adult-use marijuana initiative and says it is waiting for thousands more to be verified by supervisors of elections around the state.

Mumford -- Art and Technics (ivb)

If the acronym STEM once found merely prosaic use, it now by its mere existence and invocation encapsulates quite neatly the territory which the objective has pillaged from the non-objective. STEM encompasses the most lucrative professions and growthiest growth industries, and also demands the most rigorous academic and technical skills. It experiences shortages of qualified (home-grown) workers, and it is also too white and too male for its own good. For all of these reasons and more, STEM Matt...

In Toronto, Classical Music Seems To Be Thriving

Classical music and opera are not an old wooded sailing ship about to break into pieces in a fierce storm. They are the thin, iridescent film of soap bubbles stretched and borne aloft by the breath of eager, expectant believers. – Toronto Star

Suhr Guitar Talk :: RE: 2 Standards need help

Author: Drew7 Posted: Mon Dec 23, 2019 7:42 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 4 Honestly, unless you're not already comfortable doing all this work, your best bet is to find a good tech in your area and bring it to them, and tell them what you're looking for. Setting up a guitar may not be rocket science, but it does take a bit of practice to be good at and reading between the lines (basically, that you're not happy with the setup, and you haven't already addressed it yourself) I imagine you don't ...

  ((originally posted in 2007)) Christmas Album to play on the stereo. There was also a NatKing Cole album and a Mitch Miller “Sing Along With Mitch”Christmas edition. But for me, even rock and roll dinosaurthat I am, it’s the Andy Williams album that “feels” likeChristmas to me. I need to hear that "It's the MostWonderful Time of the Year." As I’ve gotten older and my musical tastes expanded, I findmyself listening to New Age and Celtic Christmas music. AndJosh Groban just put out a holiday alb...

“Hallelujah” Is Not A Christmas Song

There are many reasons one might be annoyed at Pentatonix, the ruling a cappella group of our time. The singing quintet is hokey and saccharine in the way only a cappella groups can be. They were birthed by reality TV. They temporarily operated with four members despite being called Pentatonix. If you dislike … More »

Hey Metronome: this $1 iOS app doesn’t threaten privacy or require online access

Now you can get hands-free metronome features while you practice and play – without worrying about privacy or needing signal. Hands-free music makes sense. If you’re an instrumentalist, it means the ability to use your music gadgets along with your instrument, without taking your hands off the keys, string, bow, and so on. But there are some issues with the way major tech providers generally provide voice recognition. Big corporate Internet-powered online assistants pose some real...

Sensory-Friendly Orchestra Performances Tap Unserved Audiences

Typically kids, adolescents and adults with autism take in information differently than their neurotypical peers. They can be easily overwhelmed by the senses, noises, visuals and smells. The loud music and the crowds and flashing lights at traditional concerts can overwhelm someone with autism such that they need to leave. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

50 Cent Bought His Son an Unlimited Toys ‘R’ Us Shopping Spree for Christmas, So Top That Santa

Rapper 50 Cent just gave his 7-year-old son a Christmas present that is so outlandishly over-the-top that no mere mortal parent could possibly top it. According to USA Today, Curtis James Jackson III, known professionally as 50 Cent, brought his family to the Toys “R” Us store in the Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, N.J., on Saturday. A camera crew followed the family and captured the moment 50 Cent ruined it for the rest of us by telling his son, Sire, “You can have whatever you se...
