I've been playing bass guitar for nine years, and a friend of mine (who was intentionally trying to offend me) says, "You really are an amazing bassist... so when are you gonna move up to guitar?" I laughed hysterically and replied, "Touché."
I can see why most people would hate this, but I actually listened to every track. I'm a weird ****, however, and I'm not sure if my opinion matters. I was playing bass-lines over some of it... I love that kind of stuff.
I quit for two years, realized I was still dying, and started again... it's been fun. Seriously, though, it only takes about two weeks to be over the nicotine addiction. The mental addiction is the hardest to break... that's why nicotine gum and patches fail so often. It's best to just stop... it takes three days to get out of your system (the nicotine)... it gets easier after that.
I've really never been too concerned with gear, honestly... I do prefer certain brands, but at times when I've been less fortunate financially, I've comfortably settled for less... f-ckin' Rondo Music was a lifesaver a few years back.
I agree completely, but it's not something I see a lot with the more experienced players. It's usually over-privileged kids who's parents bought them a guitar two Christmases ago, and now they're (in their own minds) the greatest f-ckin' thing to happen to music. They're the ones who talk about 'real music', sh-t on bassists who use picks, watch YouTube videos about shredding, and worship Avenged Sevenfold. They'll grow out of it, though... it's very common for kids to lose their heads up their asses.
I honestly don't remember; this was several years ago. Not very far... I had it on my iPod, and I would listen to it at work. I think I only tried for two or three days. Maybe I should buy it (rather than downloading it illegally); that might give me some incentive to really listen to it.
I didn't get through the entire course... ironically, it was because I found his voice to be really boring, and I couldn't focus. He had some interesting things to say, though... I really should give it a second chance.
So just cause the baby hasn't had much of a life yet that means you can kill it?
So I guess we could kill a a day old baby too right? Cause he hasn't had any life experiences?
Wouldn't bother me if you did... go for it. However, it IS illegal to kill a day-old baby. It is not illegal to destroy the fetus (depending on the age of that, as well)... so, sorry, you can't kill the doctor because you disagree with what he does.
IMO, the abortion doctor is just as much a murderer as the aforementioned killer
Yeah... that doctor killed a fetus... a fetus with a degree, a loving family, thoughts, emotions, a name in the phone book, etc. Makes sense, right? Even if you would consider it a murder, it's a legal and justifiable homicide... so killing the doctor would be the same as someone killing a war veteran.
I was actually thinking about something very similar a few hours ago (would I chose my ability to create music or my girlfriend of seven years)... I decided I've been playing music longer... so I'd stick with that one.

A guy at work told me this. I replied with, "I don't know who that is." He named a few things she acted in... the only thing that rang a bell was King of the Hill. If I ever watched Clueless or 8 Mile, I'd have to follow it up with a good ol' suicide.
Edit : Just looked her up on Wikipedia. How hilarious is it that one of her movies was called "The Dead Girl"?
I dreamed two nights in a row that I was taking weed.
I tend to have dreams about doing really hard drugs... but probably for different reasons than you. I did drugs (heavily) a few years ago, and I guess it's just a subconscious mental addiction still lingering. I don't know, though. Maybe you want to smoke some pot.
Once I had a dream about a fretless six-string bass, so the next day I bought one.
Seriously, though... stop being so angry with each other. As someone who plays both instruments equally, I know that neither is "better." They're very different instruments and neither takes more talent. Awesome bassists are better than shit guitarists and vice versa.
I do prefer to hang out with bassists, though... they're generally cool people.
well people can play harmonica and guitar at the same time so i cant see it being excesively hard if both can be played at the same time
Very talented/skillful people play both at the same time. Blues harp is pretty much like learning any other instrument. Playing both at the same time is (for me) harder than singing while playing. But who knows? You might pick it up faster than I did.
