Spent 2.5 weeks in Italy in July. My phone was totally shut off and we only had my wife's phone for our technology. Spent limited time on her phone and zero TV. Probably got more exercise and relaxation in those 2.5 weeks than the previous 25 years combined


When you actually peel your arse off the couch and get out there, you wonder why you didn't do it sooner. I love being outside. And I love exercise. Hence why I work construction. The dang technology has a way of sucking you in. And then leaving you feeling empty at the end of the day.

That is exactly the phrase I've been looking for to describe what too much technology does!!!!!!  

 

And to fill that empty feeling, more technology.    Sad addiction, that's what it is.

My doctor told me to start killing people.   Well, not  in those exact words.   He said I had to reduce the stress in my life.    Same thing, really.

Here's my unpopular opinion I'll get slammed for here.

I play guitar, piano, and make electronic music. I use a popular program called Ableton Live for that. A little violin but I suck at it and haven't touched it in years.

Making electronic music is incredibly difficult. I don't know how some people do it. And this is coming from someone who uses computers and electronics and software every single day to make videos.

Personally, I would argue that it is easier to master the guitar than it is to master a computer program such as ableton live. And in effect, it can be more difficult to make electronic or EDM music than it is to make "classic" guitar/drum whatever music.

...Hear that!...I used to play music, and record with multiple electronics including computers....at times I had more gear that the freakin' Beatles...lol....but I still sucked overall!...jus' sayin' ;)

Unabomber wrote a manifesto about it. Good read.

I think George Strait was just a pretty good singer, nothing special.   Though I do love to dance to a ton of his songs. 

 

Well,  yeah he's not a threat to win American Idol or The Voice,   but he can sure as hell write a song.  The guy has  60 #1 hits.

Honestly, the song "Check Yes or No" just might be the worst song ever written.

Far from it.  I refer you to the entire genre of rap music.

Yup, that's why it's an unpopular opinion!!!!!!!

 

I've been around a pile of George Strait fans for years.   He could sing "Piddle paddly cheese" and it would be a #1 hit.

Bacon is more overrated than the smell of popcorn.

Only when it's used in conjunction with other ingredients.  Bacon by itself is one of the best flavors on Earth, IMO.

Oh I don't think that's what I said. Lol
But I think the donuts would be better without the bacon, and the bacon would be better without the donuts.
