Thank you very much for displaying the old fogey stuck in his training and perceptions wishing to impose his archaic sense of what is right and proper on subsequent generations I said you were.
You wish to squelch youth and advancement, and enslave them to YOUR training. Those youngin's are playing nature, you are playing strict accordance to the rules you were taught.
And you claim to be an atheist and a freethinker. And oh so hip. You would make a better fundie Baptist preacher. You missed your calling.
Tsk...
Really, involving yourself in a conversation you know nothing about is rather stupid. You're way out of your league here. It's like someone arguing with a neurosurgeon over a surgical procedure.

For those who truly enjoy the beauty and imagery that music has to offer, certain parameters are extremely important. There are two essential elements in any kind of music, makes no difference if it's classical, jazz, pop, rock and roll, or your pukebucket, those two elements are MELODY and HARMONY. If either one is missing then the descriptive elements are non-existent, at least the complex descriptive elements. I suppose you can have someone beating two rocks together and chanting and this will create some kind of imagery or emotional response, but strictly on an elementary level. Those who actually value the art form need so much more than that.

You are a shallow listener as are most mundane folks, they appreciate the old cream pie right in the kisser, can't be bothered with more involved and complex music. It takes a highly intelligent mind to decipher the beauty and complexity of higher forms of music, apparently you lack that intelligence, or are just to lazy to explore.

I'm sure that 98% of people prefer the "cream pie"in the kisser, people after all are pretty lazy as evidence by the success of "fast food" ATM's, pizza deliveries. Have you watched T.V lately, completely mindless bullshit geared to the general public who will have nothing to do with anything thought provoking, yeah thats right, the same brain dead that listen to pukebucket.

Thankfully there are still a great number of sophisticated people who enjoy the elegance and beauty of well thought out music, these are the people I deal with, and these are the musical principals I impress on my students.

Now go order your McDonald's happy meal, flip on some mindless T.V show, punch up your favor mind numbing Pukebucket song, and leave the elegance and sophistication to those with superior intellects.

Elitism through "educational" indoctrination.

An artifical world.

Two rocks beat together can be better background while doing some things than listening to your blaring away on a trumpet with your interpretation of what is "good" music.

If it sounds OK, it is OK. If it sounds good, it is good.

Buckethead has some serious fans, and more than you do. His music appeals to a wider base.

You have your loyal audience at the park. As long as you bring the peanuts.

Jingos stay in your head longer than your trumpet blaring.

Tell you what. Bring a couple of cans of boiled peanuts and I will attend one of your park concerts. I'll just turn my deaf ear towards you. The look of bliss on my face while eating boiled peanuts and my ear turned toward you may attract another human to stop by to see what is going on, then you can say you have an audience.

Deal?

That is your opinion, and while I accept it as you fact, in your world. The true statement should be, and this is by your standards. Every time you post some thing about your faith, you are going off topic. Perhaps you could suggest a topic tread that would be more towards your questioning. It's not as if I claimed fact. That is the claim that needs to be proven, your standard is backwards.

False. Nearly every post you write demonstrates your hate.

You do so with belittling name-calling.

You do so by denigrating them as a person.

You do so by **refusing** to discuss IDEAS, but instead, you attack the PERSON.

That's hate bub.

You are full of it.

You're still a dozy cult, I see.

Pluto is not past Neptune.
They are at right angles to each other when compared to us or our Sun.

If only you'd used the word "farther" instead of "past", you wouldn't appear to be such a stultifying fuckwit.

But then you a religitard loser.

Nearly 50%.
So I don't really think you're an authority on "Pluto's place", twart.
50%. LMFAO
What a dolt!
"Is Pluto sometimes closer to us than Neptune?
Because Pluto has an orbit around the sun which is very elliptical, there are times when it crosses Neptune's orbit and is actually closer to the sun than Neptune. This happened recently during a twenty year period from 1979 to 1999. For now, Pluto is back to being farther away from the sun than Neptune. It will be more than 230 years before Pluto and Neptune trade places again. Pluto slips inside of Neptune's orbit once every 248 Earth years for a period of twenty years."
That's less then 10%.
What a nut job.
Oh and it will be 230 more years that I'm right with my comment.
Ya you sure showed me. Bawhahaha

Totally correct. A few percent of the time Pluto is inside Neptune's orbit.

zlmighty twart reckons Pluto is "past" Neptune even when they're on opposite sides of the Sun.

I learnt the difference between the words "past" and "farther" when I was very young. Maybe almighty twart will catch up one day.
