    Speeding up tempos feels like changing the color of a painting. Sure, you can do it, it may look interesting ... but why?

    I don't think you're crazy! It's just not something I would ever think to do. Tempos are a pretty deliberate songwriting choice in most cases, and I think the tempos of those two songs are completely a match with the lyrical content.

    Speeding up songs is a very strange thing, IMO.

    I love dark mode on Mojave so much. Each time I open something new and see it for the first time I smile.

    Is it weird that I always look at the last accounts created on the site and delete a bunch for spammy profiles? I'm playing the minority report game.

  12. Jason Tate liked Serh's post in the thread Movie Aquaman (James Wan; December 21, 2018).

    I thought this was... good. There's a lot going on here (it's damn near two and half hours long), and while you'll probably feel the length, I don't see too many people being bored by this. However, a couple subplots could've been shaved off, and none of the villains are especially remarkable. But Momoa kills it every chance he gets, and he's great together with Amber Heard. It's also amazing to look at most of the time, at least in IMAX. It's not incredible overall (and I did feel somewhat underwhelmed in spots seeing it a couple days after Spider-Verse), but it should be enough for DC fans to have faith that things are moving in the right direction

    I was like 20 when I started posting on AP, I’ve literally spent a decade of my life posting on Jason’s forums as of this month. It’s been a long, strange trip filled with internet arguments and personal growth.

    I just don’t know why it wouldn’t occur to someone like Tim Lambesis to take this opportunity to disappear. Your message doesn’t mean a thing Tim, because you thoughtfully and meticulously carried out an intentionally violent plan, all while claiming moral superiority. If you’ve changed, go be a monk somewhere. Find a way to give back instead of continuing to take, which is transparently and exactly what this is.

    the invasion is true I was the bike lock anyway on the article, while this definitely isn't an issue exclusive to new jersey (and I don't believe that was what the article was trying to say) it's being talked about because of a growing focus on that music scene. The biggest thing I can say as someone who has performed, worked with/in venues, and been a fan is to actively patron and show up when artists who don't fall into the cis male category are playing (i.e. if they are supporting and you only know the headliner, come out early), when audience members and specifical men in the audience try to shout their "witty" but often times annoying at best/creepy at worst comments tell them to shut up and watch. If you're a performer or artist active in the NJ scene or any music scene, boost the voices of those who've experienced harassment and abuse when they have decided to be public about it, if they have decided based off their experiences to blacklist a venue or promoter or another performer, do the same in solidarity. Venues should look to diversify their staff (not just with gender obviously) as having more people working the venue that directly understand the experience will make those affected by prejudice more comfortable in speaking up, as they know they are more likely to be heard and believed.
