Plus I was in a doctor's office recently where in the waiting room they were playing some old game shows, like from the 70s. Along with soap operas they did a GREAT job of INCREDIBLY vacuous programming for stay-at-home moms of the time. Like no fucking wonder they were ready to work FFS.

Heh, well I had a high-miles 300SD (bought for $800) and it was solid but for all the little things wearing out. Like window regulators where you have to buy the whole arm instead of the little plastic piece that breaks. Once I was up to about 5 grand on things like that (about 2 years) I sold it.

I'm glad I have no idea what that is nor will I

Well, I have to disagree with the analogy here. When I first saw RHPS it was out in public with all that going on and I thought it suuuucked. Eventually I got curious and rented the thing, and was like, wait a minute, this is actually surprisingly well done. The music, the cinematography, to a certain extent the acting (purposefully bad, which is a trick in and of itself), Curry's outrageous performance - not to mention that when you really look at it, it is not glorifying all the excess and debauchery, but rather pointing out it's not that great after all.

It's precisely because "you must see it in a movie theater etc etc" that for most it remains criminally underrated as an actual movie.

The comments about his outfit are great. Fucking trying to be Joe Everyman I guess.

The fact that he's had such a long ass career really doesn't speak well of the musical sensibilities of many many people. I think "Jack and Diane" is fucking insufferable, and really very boring both lyrically and musically. And that's his high point.

I think I saw even the GTI will no longer have them with the next gen. Might even be now, not sure. I will be hanging on to my 2016 for a lonnnnng time.

Indeed. Then there was the Mercedes diesel motor (as in the 300D, 300SD) that would do 300,000+ MILES with ease.

Well "lots of power" is not a claim it could make, I'll grant you that!

Same in the US, we call them subsidies (so I learned a new word today, cool!). Same thing is happening with other shit, for instance PG&E (California power company) is slashing the rate they buy power back at for solar as it's now flooding the system during the day enough they don't know what to do with it, so orders for new solar are plummeting and companies laying workers off etc. Funny how this kind of thing happens ANY time the government tries to interfere in the market....

So do guns.

Edit: I'm sure you see what I did there.

True but early ZZ Top is far better.

And parabolic mics (for those unaware, you can see them if you watch football for example on the sidelines with the TV crews) are amazing, and quite directional.

Here is Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto using one for gathering actual sounds and voices for the album Actual Sounds and Voices.

Right, because responsible alcohol or tobacco use is as wrong as responsible drug use (i.e. NOT AT ALL).

LOL it's hard to win the internet today, these days. There's so much hilarity from all angles.

Well played, sirOrMaam.

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfucker. Pigs sleep and root in shit. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.
