Armature night?

He performed for Kings and Queens, and a list of his concert tours is staggering. He left behind a fortune, 475.5 million. In the U.S. alone he had over 15 millions in assets. Grow the f--k up will ya. The sophisticated world is passing you by. You know nothing of grace and culture. Magnets and strings are your only joy. I can only feel intense pity for you, you poor slob.
Your "sophisticated world" is quite artificial.

No thank you, this is my one life, right? I will listen to what pleases me, not what an artificial creation and minion of that "sophisticated world" says should please me. Just because they said so.

Blacklagoon, and others on here, would have made great theologians a few hundred years ago. The learned class, teaching the ignorant masses what was good or not. Leading the flock to enlightenment.

Singing those rocking Gregorian chants and other sophisticated music.

Complex is not necessarily the best. Just complex. Makes work for musicians, though. Especially if they play instruments.

If there wasn't a polarity in the DNA, nothing would happen.
Oh, I'm sorry. it is all about polarity, right? Now, is that electrical polarity (separation of charges) or magnetic polarity or something else? Or do you even make a distinction?
Is that polarity caused by gravity, the nuclear forces, or virtual particles? Or EM? Chemistry is pretty much EM exchanges.
You need to learn the distinction between E&M fields and electricity. The latter is the motion of charges. The fields are a very different thing. Light, for example, has no moving charges. Chemistry is a matter of electromagnetic forces working at the quantum level. But almost no electrical current exists in DNA.
IS DNA living?
Being "alive" is a system where energy can be directed counter to environmental forces, moving part or the whole assemblage. You stepping into the shade, or a plant growing matter to bend its leaves toward the sun.
DNA doesn't direct energy, counter to environment or not. That is the job of proteins. So no, DNA is NOT alive, even by your strange definition.

I have a question for you about your country. What does the UK do about garbage? I mean you are a small country. What do you guys do with all that trash? How much of a problem is garbage for your country?

Here in the US we have plenty of land and therefore we have landfills.

Hell I don’t care if he participates in the wet tee shirt night at the Blue Lagoon. Some men may like their men small minded and small breasted.

I just want the guy to find out before a audience just how good of a comedian he is. He may end up getting his own show in Vegas. He needs to sell everything and put his talents on the big screen.

Not bad.

I like lots of music, and some(overall across a specific genre) I like less than others, but within each genre, I've found something I like just about as good as what I'd call my more favorite types of music. Be it country, rock, metal, black metal, electronic, jazz or whatever.

There's something good in all of it, once you find that one you like.

Poor blacklagoon.
He is still under the illusion that we are supposed bow to his declarations of what is art, and what ain't. He could be just one of those damned critics. They go to school and are taught it should be this way, and then go out and tell everyone else what they are supposed to like.
Art is what registers with people, not with the scholars and pros. It's a communication thingy.
Hey ,you can see how those radical two percenters are.

That's a huge question.

These guys are now considered more progressive metal, nevertheless...at one time they were black/death.


Not black metal, but some math metal(incredible playing, multiple time signatures, 8 strings etc...).

Try giving a listen(I recommend start to finish for both). It isn't for everyone.
