Can Sports Show The Way To Smarter Voting?

Electoral reform is coming to America. This year in MLB, a simple first-past-the-post voting system will no longer determine all-star starters. Fans will instead select three finalists in a Primary Round and then vote from among those finalists on a single Election Day.

grey water disposal?

So,I just finished spending over 2 months living in the corner of a garage down here in Fl..long story.Not only survived,but thrived.Had a single power outlet,and access to a bathroom. I've lived with alternative power,and cold outdoor showers,so no need to practice that. Played "what if" excecises every night in my head. Doing laundry by hand is such a huge time killer,and drying it. Kinda forget how easy it is to throw an armfull in the washer,turn it on,and walk away in 30 seconds vs.2 ho...

Gamer Was A Batshit Great Bad Movie That Was A Decade Ahead Of Its Time

cats brought me a new present

I'm back to my "homestead" in Fl. for a few months.I'm used to the cats bringing birds,rabbits,lizards,etc, in thru the pet door,and leaving them on the floor to find in the morning. I get up this morning to make coffee,and find a 8 inch walking catfish on the floor.Had about 3 inches of rain the other night,so it must have came from the canal out back,crossing the yard. 100% true story,not internet bs.

Who's Killing The Soul Of Sneaker Culture?

PITTSBURGH — In East Liberty sits a store that never looks open. While nobody would ever admit it, it’s possible that this is a deliberate move. Tinted windows obscure the inside of the store until you’re up close, and those windows are adorned with decorative oak bars all giving the impression of an aesthetically…

FL Studio gets Akai Fire, and it’s serious about step sequencing

As the Akai APC40 was to Ableton Live, so the Akai Fire hardware controller is to FL Studio. It looks like the step sequencing grid you see when you open FL, and it was created in collaboration with Image-Line. So can it bring something new to the integrated controller world? Okay, so the pitch here is easy: yes, you can use any number of controllers with FL Studio. But first-time users may want an integrated package, and dedicated hardware can be pre-mapped to do useful stuff. Price: US$199. ...

FL Studio 20 for Windows and now Mac, with Hell-freezing functionality

FL Studio aka Fruity Loops has hit a version the developers are dubbing FL Studio 20. At age 20, the software still includes lifetime free updates – and a bunch of new features, including freezing of audio, and Hell freezing over. The “Hell freezing over” bit you’ll see a lot around this release. It’s a reference to a claim developers Image-Line made that they’d add native Mac support “when Hell freezes over.” The comment at the time wasn’t so outrageous: FL Studio had been built a Windows-nat...
