I thought some people here would appreciate this: Steve Vai has an open question thread in the "IaMA/ AMA" section of reddit.com, i could not believe it until he posted this

So if any users here have a reddit account go for it... i don't think this is advertising for another website (well it is kinda), its only a great opportunity!

EDIT: forgot the direct link STEVE VAI THREAD

Strike him down with sleight of hand.
And if heaven rides against us
Then God himself must be damned.

Oh really?

Did Mikael Åkerfeldt, and Jimmy Chamberlin etc respond to you?
#13
I'm still in shock that he so explicitly admitted he was Steva Vai, most "ask me anything" threads are anonymous... I have so many things i want to say in my mind but cannot process them due to the sheer awesomeness of Vai

Shens on that picture... How did it get reflected correctly when it isn't even facing the mirror

Yeah, lots of guys actually answer their own emails. Me and my buddy had a decent sized conversation with Paul Gilbert.

Guys, this is STEVE. ****ING. VAI. His mirrors don't need to obey your stupid laws of nature and physics.

Actually, on closer inspection (I leaned in a lot), looks like he wrote it backwards on the opposite side of the paper. Can't explain the hotel's stationary being printed double-sided though not no way.

I don't get what's messing with people about that pic, he took a pic facing the mirror with the paper facing towards the camera. The marker bled through the paper so it was automatically reversed, so the paper in the mirror looks right from the camera.
#25
no ****ing way.

I'm in amazement right now. I know that at least a couple times celebrities have posted on 4chan, but they weren't any Steve Vai.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

thats not how markers work, dude.

he must have written it on both sides, backwards on the back. i just dont see how the pen didnt bleed through even a little.

not to mention the second mirror to the left of him, which makes absolutely no sense.

no offense but what do you mean by thats not how markers work..
if i take a marker and write on a piece of paper i reckon it would bleed..
also the emblem reflected in the mirror is just the silhouette of the front page (on closer inspection)

look at the shapes of the letters, especially the O. its a completely different shape. also, the R is a different proportion of top to bottom.

If you look closer, the writing is different. Looks like he wrote it on the back of the page too.

okay, I just went to take a pic, but my cellphone is shitty.


i swear to you, go write on a piece of regular paper with a marker and hold it up in front of a mirror, proceed to feeling like a dumbass.

steve vai makes a thread for questions and the pit discusses his photo and the possibilities of a Escher-esque reality, i love UG
#34


There. Now there's nothing.

End this damn discussion about the mirrors.

i did and i did.

but anyway, that looks like a ballpoint pen, and the writing is different on each side.


EDIT: wait. correct me if im wrong, but shouldnt the third hand(the one on the left side) have the hand on the other side of the paper?

im assuming that the second mirror is at a right angle with the first. because if it isnt, that means there are two people in the room holding up that paper.

VICTORY IS MINE! (stewie voice)


lol, I'll grant that. once I looked again I realized you are right about the letters being different, maybe it's the mirror is at a slight angle to make people feel short?

and there are tons of different kinds of pens, there's no telling.


edit: maybe vai was holding his phone up and holding the paper, but someone else was holding the paper that's right in front of the camera (they took the picture, they just did weird shit with the angle to mess with your head.


if you don't get what I'm saying I'll try to explain my theory better.

wait, is the mirror on the left at an angle to reflect his actual hand, not the reflection? maybe a 20 or 30 degree angle?

but then the dimensions of the sink make no sense, because they would be reflected in two different places, the angles of the sink should be off.
