Rocksmith is where it's at, at least for guitar and bass. Especially considering the ridiculous quantity of free community tracks on customforge. Somewhere north of 5,000 last time I looked.

They're suing over the chord progression, which AFAIK, you can't copyright.

I don't know how he could sit there and say with a straight face that it wasn't the circus he's talking about.

Because he knows the work that went behind creating them. If you want to educate yourself, there's volumes of material on the subject.

Here's some good ones to start off with.
Power of Myth
The Magic Myth
Making of Star Wars
Making of ESB
Making of TPM

The right-wingers on this board have been oddly quiet so far.

I watched all 6 over the holiday break for the first time. I can honestly say that ROTS is currently my favorite of the bunch. Best opening, best effects, best light-saber fights. Watching ROTS and ROTJ back-to-back, I also noticed for the first time how similar the Emperor's performance is between the two.

...And Anakin just going "Well shit, I'm confused, let me just go murder Jedi children because this dude who both Jedi Masters said was evil told me so."

This criticism bugs me. It's like people are ignoring that ROTS is part of a series. Lucas spent 5 and half movies establishing and explaining Anakin's fall to the dark side, but people claim it was abrupt?

"If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny"

"Your father... was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and "became" Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed."

"Hmm. Much anger in him, like his father."

"His mind is twisted and evil."

"do not underestimate the powers of the Emperor or suffer your father's fate you will."

"The hate is swelling in you now. Take your Jedi weapon. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant. "

"Your hate has made you powerful. Now, fulfill your destiny and take your father's place at my side!"

"Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you."

"I... I killed them. I killed them all. They're
dead, every single one of them...Not just the men, but the women and the children too. They're like animals, and I slaughtered them like animals... I hate them!"

"I will be the most powerful Jedi ever! I promise you, I will even
learn to stop people from dying."

"The fear of loss is a path to the Dark Side."

"I won't let her die. I want the power to stop death."

"Do what must be done, Lord Vader. Do not hesitate. Show no mercy. Only then will you be strong enough with the dark side to save Padme."

Loving that TCM is now actually HD. I also watched one of the movies last night, but recorded the others.

To quote the wife, "Marx brothers are a lot funnier than I expected."

That oak sticks kickstarter is a first class scam. Not because they don't work, but because the things have been available for many, many years.

That does not look promising. Besides the cheap look of the productions, I don't see much resemblance to the characters, either, and I'm not talking physically. Lots of over-acting, too.

Yet there are people who still insist that a UI that was designed for a single screen running at 800x600 is still the greatest thing ever.

I was running X-windows on multi-monitor 21" high-res displays in computer labs more than 20 years ago. There were plenty of tablets around then, too (although mostly pen based). There's more horsepower for prettier graphics, but the actual human-computer interface has changed very little over the past 30 years.

We ran xeyes for a reason.

So why doesn't Californy ban all violent media in that case?

For those not familiar, Marin County is politically controlled by old, rich hippies. Sort of the anti-Orange County.

If you hadn't told me it was a different band, I would have assumed it was Best Coast. Almost exactly the same sound.

I live in California and those prices are straight off of shop.safeway.com. Feel free to look them up yourself if you don't believe me. If I went to an Asian or Latino market, it'd be even less.

I'm also willing to admit it's entirely possible I'm spoiled by cheap produce here, but I didn't think the price differences would be that drastic around the country.

I use a simple salsa recipe (roma tomato, green onion, garlic, salt, lime juice, cilantro, hot sauce) that costs significantly more than simply buying a jar of Pace.

Some stuff, like ice cream or cheese, is cheaper to buy than make, but produce is cheap. These are the prices from my local store:

Pace:
$3.00 24 oz
$.125 per oz

Homemade salsa:
0.68 2 lb tomatoes
1.09 1 bundle green onions
0.10 1/2 head garlic
0.30 1/2 bundle cilantro
0.20 1 lime
0.20 2 jalapeno peppers

That's around $2.50 for about 40 oz of salsa, or $0.0625 an oz -- about half the price of Pace. You could use all organic ingredients and still come in a bit cheaper.

It's made it clear that 'game journalists' are for sale (either through sex or cash/goods)

Pardon me for barely paying attention to this issue, but is this actually news to anyone? Games journalism has been the pit of integrity for as long as I can remember. With rare exception, game reviews have always had a bad rep. For Christ's sake -- console companies had their own magazines in which they reviewed their own games.

All that said, the I still think issue has been blown well out of proportion.

I don't know about that, considering the future of human civilization is at stake, and that's not an exaggeration. Look at all the ways the Internet has transformed the world over the past 20 years. How this plays out will determine the shape of the internet.

First, I turned off automatic updates for everything. When they forced Australis, I switched to Pale Moon. Now it's all good.

I'm surprised they didn't call it rape. They would have gotten even more clicks.

But their private sex life should be their private sex life.

Now meet reality. I expect my credit card number to be secure, but I've had to replace it twice this year due to hacks. Unfortunately, I don't have a choice about giving out my card info. They did.
