Garlic?

20 August 2016 - 10:42 PM

What are your feelings about this vegetable?

It seems quite versatile to me and I've always liked it, it's just unfortunate how long it will stay on your palate and give you bad breath. Sometimes I'll have a drink after eating something with garlic and realize it interferes with the taste.

It apparently has some significant health benefits and the plant itself has practical uses for adhesive properties among other things.

In mythology it also serves as a vampire repellent, which is kinda neat. We had a few kids who fancied themselves vampires at our school and one day a kid threw garlic at them. They awkwardly explained that their lack of reaction to it wasn't proof that they weren't vampires. This didn't really happen but it would be funny if it all did I think.

Some suggest that it serves as a somewhat effective rabbit and mole repellent as well.

One time I accidentally used more than twice the amount of recommended garlic for a grilled eggplant recipe, and I was the only one willing to eat it. It wasn't that bad really.

I would say I'm a fan of garlic, probably above average enthusiasm for it.

Music nerds please help

I've been making music-ish stuff in ableton more often lately and my ears are hurting. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong, overusing something or whatever. I'm a total layman with mixing, I just use it to make arrangements using midi and play around with different effects.

I've tried lowering the volume(obvious) but it's only somewhat helpful. I'm wondering if there's like a checklist of common causes for this sort of problem and I can tweak things as necessary.

Ladder slid out from under me today

10 August 2016 - 08:27 PM

So I was helping my mom clear out some property that was kinda trashed by a problematic tenant she evicted. Was using a ladder and I don't even know for sure what happened but judging by the aftermath it seems it slid off what it was leaning on.

Was pretty scary for that brief period of free falling(only ~12ft or so but still). Weird experience 'cause I barely registered it but somehow landed on my feet, then kinda fell back onto my hands. No injury just a bit sore in a few spots. It seemed like I landed optimally despite barely any conscious choices. Reflexes are crazy.

what the shit windows 10

I upgraded to windows 10 'cause I figured I may as well before the freeness expires, but my firewall is now failing to block programs from accessing the internet.

Ableton Live is now asking me for authorization. :confused:

Also apparently the new administrator account has gone full retard and randomly can't do things, so I have to operate on a non-admin account.


Wondering if I even should've upgraded, it's mostly a bunch of unwanted features and limitations for only a bit better performance.


Poor choice of name for their little helper/search bar thing as well. Cortana? Really?
