    Hey matey,

    That's pretty 'funny' taking the piss out of people's request for help,
    when, obviously, they should be as fluent and literate as yourself.

    properly then just repeat IT LOUDER to them :(

            Yeah, dude. I just saw part of a Spring Break thing I taped a
    while back (I watched it because The State was on) where The cast of The
    State did this really interesting (and hilarious) take on Macbeth.

    Well, you can just ask all the jammers who are sleeping at my place tonight what angle my halo is on after they had a nice comfortable floor to sleep on and didn't have to drive 5 hours home :P

    OR, you can just come see for yourself. :P

    Actually, I saw it on the news. Pat is doing this as a dare type of thing and apparently is having fun with it. :D Speaking on the news, here in LA last night, there was this film clip shot from a helicopter of this guy on a motorcycle who was being chased by the cops on the LA freeway. The cops gave up because they were concerned on hurting innocent people in this high speed chase so they sent a helicopter to follow. Anyway, the cyclist was reported to have been doing in the neighborhood of 120 mph at times. He took an offramp and at the top of the offramp, he slammed into the side of a bus. It was all there, right on film. Miraculously, the biker only suffered a broken wrist. Bizarre.

    i thought about it, but i think our prof wants us to do something more interactive... and for 23 minutes, i'd need WAY more than 75MB...i digitized just 1.5 minutes of video from the Live In Tokyo video, and it was 100 MB :) currently we each have a 200MB quota, which may be increased soon.

    thanks for the idea though...i wanted to do something like that for my first assignment, but we could only do a 1 minute video...

    any other ideas? also, please use a subject such as "DT Multimedia project" or something like that...because if it's YTSEJAM Digest #xxxx i will delete it. i don't have time to examine every post these days...

    From: Achilles <> Subject: Logic...

    I just had some rotten Logic exam, and I thought I'd say something here ;)

    Alternative is Shit ( p =3D> q ) Load is Alternative ( p is true for Load) Load is Shit ( q is true for Load)

    ok, now go ahead and tell me my logic is flawed!!! ;=DE

    Sure. Your assumption is false--- "p" is not true for Load, since Load is not Alternative.

    Of course, this does not mean that Load is not shit.

    Unless, "shit" is a property exclusive to Alternative. In that case, Load may be something else, but it is definitely not shit.



    Date: Tue, 18 Jun 1996 14:48:26 -0700 From: Adam Barnhart <> To: Message-ID: <>

    Hello all...I'm new to the list and don't have the sense to know when to keep my mouth shut. So, with that in mind, I'll go ahead and plug along on a number of issues:

    1) I would agree with the notion that John Myung wouldn't be the second most difficult member of the band to replace. That having been said, I'll get in touch with my radical bass player instincts -- I'd say he'd be the toughest to replace with a comparable musician. Petrucci's a dominant player, but there just AREN'T that many people who can do what Myung does without playing an over the top role in the band. He's phenomenal.

    2) I've been heartened to see a few messages lately in the digest to the effect that Metallica's latest DOESN'T mean they're suddenly headed downhill; that they're taking a new direction. This is NOT unprecedented in the history of music. And I'd have to say, in fact, that most of the bands that I've been fond of -- Rush, Yes, Iron Maiden, Tull, ELP, Sabbath, Zeppelin, Floyd -- who've had longer careers HAVE made radical changes in direction through they're history. I think interpreting "integrity" as 32nd notes is wrong....I like Steve Howe's notion of "Progressive," which includes pedal steel and funk playing, along with virtuosity. And that's where Metallica is now. "Load" is quite an effort. Probably not on par with "Ride The Lightning," but better, I'd say than "Kill 'Em All" (which is more Euro-metal sounding than thrash, anyhow) and "...And Justice For All."

    3) For what it's worth, The Doors played live without a bass player for the most part, but 95% of they're studio work has a live bass player, rather than the keyboard bass.

    4) Vernon Reid is a phenomenal musician...on par (heart be still!) with Petrucci and Tony MacAlpine and Jeff Beck -- that first line of great players. I'm particularly impressed with his playing with Ronald Shannon Jackson and on "Time's Up." I'm eager to hear his new stuff....

    5) "A Love Supreme" should be required listening for anyone who really enjoys music -- and is a great building block for any musician. Coltrane is amazing... most people consider this his magnum opus, though I'd opt for "My Favorite Things," it's a little more lyrical.

    6) The notion that Dream Theater ought to be considered a progressive band first and foremost is interesting. I'm not sure, myself. I'd say there's at least as much agressive content as progressive, meaning I'd trace a lineage to Maiden, Metallica, Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and the NWOBHM as much as I would to Genesis and Yes (there are the special issues of Rush and Tull, who're something like hard rock/progressive).

    My observations oughta be taken with a grain of salt, though. I don't have the sens to not like Silverchair and Bad Religion and Dar Williams and Bush. I don't have the good taste to recognize bad taste, I guess....

    Also, my survey of the 'jams TOP 10 favorite muscians with their instruments is near nil! I have only gotten 3 1/2 Top 10s(without counting my mom's :) ). Monty Newberry where is the new Top 10. So far the only person to have more than 1 vote is Geddy Lee with his bass! Come on I know you 'jammers who are not bassists really don't want a bassist to beat out your personal instrument. And to all bassist let's keep bassist where they should be on...FIRST! ;D

    I would like it if everyone would follow these directions for sending in their list. 10 artists only! You can have 2 of the same artist but you have to pick a different instrument! (i.e. John McCabe / Bass and John McCabe / Vocals) Also I will count lyrics as a instrument! You CAN pick Dream Threater members!

    Come on don't just scroll by this post! Don't you people at least want a DT member to get first place! I mean this is a DT mailing list. So please VOTE!

    Naturally, cost overruns hit me, and I'm in the hole for the latest batch of CDs. No big deal, since there are still plenty to sell. If you have an Antiquities, Scenes, WDATU, or Critical Mass on reservation, please Take The Time to send the order along... once the speed of orders finally matches the speed of cost, everything will be back on track. This happened with Acoustic Dreams just before WDATU and it all worked out.

    If anyone is interested in the very-limited-edition CDs by Dream Theater "When Dream And Today Unite", "Antiquities", or "Scenes From A Memory", please contact me right away, I don't want you to miss it! Antiquities has less than 30 copies remaining unreserved!

    Just to shed some light on the title "Dead Winter Dead". "Dead Winter Dead" refers to the "seasons" in Bosnia. During the bitter winter the fighting slows down. Before and after the winter the fighting is intense, so are the tragedies, and the death count rises.

    Well, that is my understanding of it. If any one else has another interpretation I'd love to hear it.
