Just wondering about you guys, cause something that happened to me recently has really been bothering me.

I was at the house of one of my dads friends. He has a room full of instruments like guitars, basses, and keyboards. Also, a bunch of really good amps that he made himself. He is primarily a keyboard player.

He's into rock and blues music that that was popular when he was young. (Dragon, The Animals, Dire Straits a lot of blues guitarist and blues rock guitarists, and certainly nothing heavier than Jimi Hendrix or Deep Purple).

Not bad, a lot of stuff I enjoy too. We talk about that sort of music for a while, stuff we are both into. He asks more about what I listen to. I mention that as well as all that stuff that he listen too, I have been listening to metal for years and really love it. Bands like Iron Maiden and Metallica got me into it, and now I listen to all sorts of different things in the genre.

He looks at me with derision/contempt/scorn, and says "It's just a phase, you'll grow out of it"

-_-

I'd understand his comment if I was some 13 year old kid who went "OMG, METUL IS TEH BRUTAAALZ, DETH TO ALLZ BUT MHETUL!".

But I'm 17 years old, we showed a shared interest in one kind of music, and I mention that another kind that he doesn't enjoy is something I really love and have loved for a long time, and he called it a phase I'll grow out off. I was annoyed to say the least.

What abotu you guys?

He respects you enough to believe that you're better than being a metal fan. You should be flattered he has such faith in you to not be a knuckle-dragging plebe.

He isn't really worth the time you spend on him. Musical tastes =/= a measure of maturity. Unless you're listening to the Tweenies soundtrack, that is.

Eh, people don't really condescend me. The only time I can think of is when I was trying to inform a teacher that I was "double booked" and that I'd have to miss the tutor group (I had a project meeting thing for psychology), and she just brushed me off and said "That's very good" and ignored me. I just left for psychology. Why rise to it
they're coming to take me away

When I went to buy my first electric guitar and I asked the guy that was working there that I was looking to buy my first guitar the dude says: "Oh, you already finished Guitar Hero?". I wanted to fucking punch him

In my youth I used to swim white water rapids for fun and raced supercharged go-carts.

People Condescend to me all the time.

I am used to it.

I think they do it in self-defense.

HA! Yeah..well...not to sound harsh, but he's sort of right. The stuff I listened to three years ago are bands that I hardly think twice about, these days.

You'll probably ALWAYS like metal, but I'm sure, when he was 17, someone told him that he'll grow out of Dire Straits.

Obviously, he did not.

The bottom line is...I wouldn't let it bother you. This dude is like 40 or 50? Let him think what he wants.

I've noticed that a lot of older musicians take younger musicians lightly until you can show them what you can really do.

I've always been into the classics, growing up. I mean, I started, like most rock fans, with classic rock, moved to classic metal, and then onto newer stuff. I've never been able to hold a conversation with an older player because he will always interrupt with "Hey...I saw Sabbath in 78', two weeks before Ozzy was fired. You know nothing of their work."

It's a task, for sure.

Again, let it be.

I do feel awkward when I look back on things I felt in the past that people would probably say were "just a phase" and how annoyed I'd feel at them saying that, then realise now they'd be completely right...

As a teenager you feel so justified and sensible in your feelings, then you look back and think "Christ... what was that about..."

At this point, it's unlikely.

The only classes I've ever failed were English and Accounting.

This explains much.

Those older musicians often seem to be a bit up their own asses. The younguns havea lot of potential. I agree with bold.

i ask a lot of shit. when i asked my teacher in primary school 'why is the moon round' and 'why are all planets round' she said 'what else is it going to be, a square?'. i replied with 'why isn't it a square' and she sent me to the head teacher. i still have ****ing questions like that and discouraging them is the worst thing you can possibly do. i still don't understand the ****ing answer

I went to a local guitar tech who has a really good reputation to get my guitar fixed. Dude was an asshole in how he handled everything, and the weirdest/douchiest part was when I handed him my guitar, he looks it over and asks "Did you sand the neck, brah?"


Yes, Bill Richardson, I took fucking sand paper to my guitar.

The gravity of a planets pulls matter inward to the core thus, creating a sphere. Smaller celestial objects, such as asteroids, are often irregular shapes because they don't have enough force from gravity pulling the matter to the center.

I only skimmed his post. Originally, I wrote "capital letters" in place of "grammar". I changed it when I realised he'd made more grammatical mistakes than incorrect capital letter usage, I didn't correct any grammatical mistakes (if there were any) of my own.

Ok, imagine a billion ping-pong balls floating in space an equal distance apart.

They each have identical mass and density.

Over time they will start to move towards each other and form larger masses.

The larger masses will increase the local density and cause more ping-pong balls to float towards them.

The Force, assuming they were all equal distance apart in the beginning, wil lbe equal in all directions.

The result will be that the center of the original mass will wind up being the point where everything gathers.

As a result the even force in all directions will force the final mass to be round. The balls will essentially roll down hill until they reach the bottom.

Now, if you want to understand how gravity itself works, you are out of luck. Last I read on the subject, there were a lot of theories, but no one was really sure.
