What combination of items could you buy which will make the cashier uncomfortable?

Christinewhat’s Profile PhotoChristine
23 boxes of elastic bands.
Then keep going back to the checkout with more boxes, each time wearing the rubber bands that you’ve already bought on your face until eventually you just have a giant rubber head.

Have you ever had a "friend" who turned on you and became a hater for no reason?

Yes, I believe most people have.
Although, most people who hate me probably have a reason for hating me. For example, I've been known to suddenly quit bands or employment because either the band sounded awful and I could not take it anymore or the place of employment treated their employees without respect. So whenever I walk out on a relationship, I am quite certain those affected literally hate me. Oh well.... such is life.

Ich habe mich ja richtig über deine Slayer vs. Slipknot Umfrage gefreut aber ich kann mich absolut nicht entscheiden 😩 Beide sehr gute Bands für ihr Genre! Auch Live sind beide der absolute Hammer! Wenn ich könnte, würde ich beide nehmen 😂

Last time you cried?

The last time I cried was 2-21-2021 when my dearest friend Matt passed away from cancer. We first met in high school, attended college together, performed together in various bands and played golf and watched baseball games together. Since 2011 we even lived in the same city and often hung around together, debated politics, discussed history, literature and many other topics. Losing your best friend causes great pain and anguish because, as most would agree, developing a genuine friendship is a lifelong process full of surprises and obstacles that must be handled with great patience and care.

Warst du schon mal auf einem Konzert? Wenn Ja, auf wie vielen und welche/r Band/Musiker?

Mein erstes Konzert war von der EAV (Erste allgemeine Verunsicherung). Da ich zu dem Zeitpunkt noch nicht volljährig war, begleiteten mich meine Eltern zu dem Konzert, das sehr geil war. Später war ich dann auf Konzerten folgender Bands:

Auf die Band hatte ich mich einfach mega gefreut, doch leider war ein oder gar mehrere Bandmitglieder krank und das Konzert musste abgesagt werden. Als Ersatz kam dann Thumb. Da war ich einfach enttäuscht obwohl Thumb wie gesagt auch sehr geil war.

is pop punk still a thing? maybe i'm just not updated, but it feels to me as if pop punk died somewhere in the 2000s. like you know those super famous bands like panic at the disco, fall out boy, green day, paramore, blink 182, sum 41, avril (i think avril was pop punk too idk)

i personally like to think it’s dead because the alternative means that machine gun kelly & yungblud are the “new” punk pop and that’s so, so much worse

Was college different in your days than it is now?

Yes. Big Time!
When I attended college we did not study: gender studies, black history, feminism, equity and inclusion, etc. I studied composition, arranging, harmony, counterpoint, improvisation, music history, conducting, ear training, guitar, piano, bass guitar, digital systems, analog systems, power supplies, electricity, physics, calculus, English Literature, US History, Ancient History, Fine Arts, Public Speaking, Psychology, Philosophy, Network engineering, machine language, basic programming, pascal programming, C Programming, IP addressing, Subnet masking, OSPF, BGP, RIP, WAN, LAN, Routers, Switches, Firewalls, OSI Model, Access Lists, etc
And after acquiring all of this knowledge I worked hard to apply what I had learned. In the case of music, I performed in bands and practiced to continuously improve. In the case of engineering I became a Cisco Certified and Baynetworks Certified Network Engineer and worked for many organizations over a 40 year career i.e. Motorola, Nortel, Cabletron, Bay Networks, Cisco, State of New Hampshire, Vital Networks, Bloomin Brands and Tech Data.
Whenever possible, I studied subjects that interested me and that I knew would allow me to earn money and provide for my family. I also studied music, not for the money, but because I love Music and that has always been my dream to earn a degree from Berklee College of Music. Some people say, so what? Who cares? Here is the thing, when we are moments away from death and we reflect upon the life we have lived, what will we think? Will we regret our life because we only did those things that made us money? Or will we have a more balanced appreciation that we utilized our time to not only provide for our family but that we also achieved our dream and thus satisfied our soul? The choice is ours to make and only we, as individuals, can make those choices and be honest enough to own whatever choice we make, and refrain from blaming other people or society, and thus become "victims."
My father once told me the following: "son you've made your bed, and now you must lie in it." Which translated, means that we are responsible for the decisions we make and the consequences of those decisions whether good or bad. Said differently, we must take responsibility for what we think, say and do.

Was the proposal a surprise or did you know? :o

sophiw3’s Profile PhotoSophie H.
For the most part, it was a total surprise! Although I knew that my partner was planning on proposing sometime this year, he had said so himself back in January, but I didn't know exactly when he was planning. I had a couple of guesses. Part of me did suspect that he would propose while were in Manchester, but I also thought it might happen on our anniversary in July.
I didn't, for a moment, think that he would ask me to marry him during the Ghost concert! I love that he did, though. Ghost are one of our favourite bands and they hold a special significance to us. Back in the very early days of our relationship, we would bond over our shared love of their music...
So the fact that he proposed during their concert is just so special to me. I am always going to remember that moment.

Which brand of clothing do you own most of?

baurde001’s Profile Photo[e_o]
I am not a brand enthusiast, in the way that many people are.
Branded gear is generally overpriced, for no good reason.
My shorts, socks and boots come from either Walmart or Amazon, depending on whats more convenient at the time.
I do tend to get the same brands of each, but not out of loyalty, simply because they're what exists.
Wrangler, Dickies & Brahma, respectively.
They're cheap, durable, and most importantly...comfortable.
My shirts come from bands, various artistic sources, or online stores that have entertainment-based merch.
As far as individual t-shirt brand, I'd say Gildan is my preferred, because they understand a 2x shirt needs to be longer, as well as wider...but I still get other brands if I like the art on it.

Name 10 band from your state? I bet you can't do it. If you can get 10 I'll tell you the 10 from my state

I’d be hard pressed to think of many bands that hail from my county! Without googling, I can only think of two bands, which are Keane and The Kooks. I’m guessing that Brighton would be the main music hub of the area.
Just googled it and wow, I had no idea that The Cure (!), Fatboy Slim, Passenger and Royal Blood are from this area too :)

Geht ihr auch so gerne auf Konzerte wie ich? Und wenn ja….wo wart ihr schon so bei welchen Künstlern? 😊

cleverfred’s Profile PhotoDirk
So super gerne gehe ich eigentlich nicht auf Konzerte. Aber die, auf denen ich war, haben mir alle gefallen und ich hatte einen schönen Abend.
Als Teenie bin ich auf alle möglichen Punkkonzerte gegangen, aber da kann ich es mir sparen, die Bands aufzuzählen. Das waren fast immer kleine regionale Bands, die nicht wirklich bekannt und erst Recht nicht massenpopulär waren.
Ansonsten habe ich gesehen:
- Kirlian Camera (🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤)
- Depeche Mode
- Crüxshadows
- VNV Nation
- Manowar
- Faun
- Solstafir
- Mila Mar
- And One
- Feindflug
Und noch haufenweise andere Bands auf Festivals

Bands from Texas: selena quintanilla, willie nelson, george straight, zz top, buddy holly, waylon jennings, roy orbison, charley pride, billy preston, george jones :) p.s. I think these musicians started out in Texas

Of course! I was thinking of rock/alternative. If it were specifically country; that list would be so long ☺️🎶

Would you rather be a singer or actor?

Well, I've never had any interest in acting. I might be more creative as a writer. With singing, I've done backup vocals in some bands (and lead in my own projects) but with a vocal range which is limited to two or three styles, singing isn't my forte and I should probably avoid being anywhere near a microphone... =P

favorite band? mines slipknot

itsMena36019’s Profile PhotoitsMena
Probably Metallica. I’m not really sure. I listen to a lot of bands. I have a friend who loves death metal bands like Slipknot. He always wants me to go to a concert with him, but it’s just not my kind of music.

What's the best present for a 9 year old?

FreshICYGirl’s Profile PhotoV3rs3 7
Maybe sit down with the 9 year old and make a list of 5 potential presents and discuss the pros and cons of each gift along with cost and potential applications now and in the future. As a parent I enjoyed negotiating with my children.
For example, when my teenage boy wanted to upgrade his $1,000 Yamaha alto sax to a Selmer Super80 which cost 3x as much, I asked him how much $$$ he was willing to contribute. He agreed to 50%. So I told him that when he had $1,500 saved we would go purchase the sax. In the meantime he continued taking lessons, performing in big bands and youth symphonies while also working 20 hours a week. Within one year he saved the money and we went and purchased the super80 as promised.
Today my son is a professional musician with several degrees and has appeared on many recordings and performed around the world and is now the director of Arts and Music at a prestigious private school in the United States.
I consider these moments to be critical learning opportunities that can help the child develop essential skills such as goal setting, self discipline, responsibility, determination and passion. I hope this helps.

Was ist denn Zombiecore? Könntest du da irgendwelche Bands empfehlen?

gichi97’s Profile Photogichi
Zombiecore ist eine Ästhetik, die auf dem Gefühl, der Empfindung und der Optik basiert, ein Zombie zu sein. Die Texte sind sehr tiefgründig und sprechen beispielsweise über das Gefühl von Schlaflosigkeit oder Depression, wodurch man sich taub und müde fühlt..
Da wäre einmal die Band Zombiez, die ich gerne höre.. Ja, es geht lediglich in vielen Texten darum, dass man ein Zombie ist. In manchen anderen, wie das Leben ist etc. Dunkel, düster, deep. Wahre Aussagen in manchen Liedern, daher höre ich sie gerne.
Callejon soll auch darunter fallen, aber dass sehe ich nicht so. Sie haben auch tiefgründige Texte, aber es ist eine deutsche Metelcore Band.
Aber wenn du googelst, solltest du vielleicht paar mehr Bands finden. Ich habe tatsächlich nur die eine Band unter Zombiecore, gibt aber bestimmt noch mehr..
Hoffe, dass hat dir jetzt etwas geholfen. 😊

If you could join any past or current music group which would you want to join?

Any of these bands but not in any particular order. When I play along with recordings at home I imagine myself playing on stage with that band so I try to capture the feeling or groove and interpretation whether on guitar or bass guitar. Each one of the bands listed who provide me with an opportunity to learn while playing music/sounds that I personally enjoy. There are many other bands I could have listed, for example Steely Dan who I love especially their great well formed guitar solos. Unfortunately, the Steely Dan you hear in the studio (which is amazing) is NOT the same band you hear live (which is not impressive).
1. The Beatles - to learn how to sing 3 part harmony, compose songs and recording techniques. I would not want to perform live with the Beatles, only studio work. However, I would appreciate playing with Paul McCartney's band because they are absolutely amazing live. In fact, I am going to see Paul and his band perform May 28th in Florida. Got floor seating right next the the mixer. Best sound in the house. :) x1,000
2. The Eagles - to sing 4 part harmony
3. James Taylor - for harmony, song writing and performance
4. Bruce Hornsby and the Range - band has great feel and interesting guitar parts
5. Billy Joel - for song writing, performance and because his music is very guitar centric an demanding for the guitarist
6. The Allman Brothers - two drummers, guitar solos in 3rds, slide guitar and just a great kick ass blues sound. What could be better. Check this out!
The Allman Brothers Band - Statesboro Blues ( At Fillmore East, 1971 )

OK so it doesnt bother you personally if 2nd wavers look down on you ? Why it bother others in your wave and why nobody talks about 1st wave ?

> OK so it doesnt bother you personally if 2nd wavers look down on you ?
Why should it? They're older guys and while they did have a tremendous influence on me, they "paid their dues" and they have every right to view anybody as the wish. I'm still in touch with some of them and to be honest, they have never disrespected me.
> Why it bother others in your wave
No idea. It's not my concern.
> and why nobody talks about 1st wave ?
Good luck defining the 1st Wave of BM - people still argue over which band came first and similar nonsense. Truth be told, the genre was still formative in those early days. Very few bands and most used elements which were borrowed from other styles. With a few exceptions, the genre was not very distinguishable until the 2nd Wave appeared.

What do you see in future? 🔮✍️ ✨

Which group started Heavy Metal in your opinion?

I don't believe that one group in particular deserves credit but certain musical elements were introduced by bands like Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. None of them could be defined as "Heavy Metal" but they helped to lay a foundation which other bands could build on until the genre developed and became easily identifiable. Groups like Saxon, Motorhead and Judas Priest pushed boundaries further and while their earliest efforts weren't "Heavy Metal" either, they certainly moved in that direction and I would consider them as being among the earliest pioneers. In my opinion, the Hard Rock band AC/DC deserved some credit too. As far as the earliest reference to "Heavy Metal" is concerned, it is found on Steppenwolf's debut album from 1968 in their song "Born To Be Wild." Their style was typical Rock music of that era and while there was nothing "heavy" about their music, the song was "catchy" and I'm sure that it inspired a few ideas which became commonplace in Heavy Metal circles. ;-)

What kind of music did you listen to as a teenager? What do you listen to now?

amycheetham09’s Profile PhotoAmy Rose
Heavy metal, punk, hard core, black metal, hc/punk, ska punk, grunge, rock, blues and classical.
My taste hasn't changed as much. I'd still listen to most of the same stuff I did back than, plus some new bands I've discovered over the years, and minus the punk scene (although I still go back to some most notable ones).

Hello sir, I am in dilemma to change my career, do you have any advice on it. Would love to hear from you

Changing careers is difficult because it takes honest soul searching and the willpower and self discipline to create realistic goals, define objectives and then execute your plan. I can only answer this question based upon my own experience.
When I was a teenager I decided to be a full time musician and so I took guitar lessons, practiced, formed a band and graduated from Berklee College of Music. To survive, I lived at home with my parents, taught guitar lessons, performed in bands and worked part time jobs for extra money.
In 1979 I rented an apartment, got married and we had our first child. It was at this point that I realized that being a full time musician would NOT pay the bills. So I started reading some self help books and came across a writer/speaker named Zig Ziglar who taught me how to create realistic goals and to prioritize what is important to me. So I created two lists: one list consisted of the careers I was interested in and the other list contained careers I was not interested in. One career that stood out was Electrical Engineering. I was always interested in electricity and electronic devices. My father would fix televisions and radios in the basement and I would frequently watch him and ask him questions.
However, the obstacle I had to confront was both financial and time related. Since I had a family and had recently graduated from Berklee but also needed decent employment, I had some difficult decisions to make. And so I found a two year Electronic Engineering program nearby where I could earn my ASEE within a few years and I enrolled. Next, I found employment at a high tech company working 3rd shift as a janitor. Within 2 years I was working 1st shift as a janitor and was cleaning and emptying trash for the CEO and the Vice Presidents. During this time period an electronic technician job became available and I mentioned my interest and my background to senior management. They promised me they would "look into it." Within one week, I had a job interview and was immediately hired to setup, configure and troubleshoot computer/networking equipment in their world wide technical training department. And from there I became a Product Support Engineer and ultimately a Senior Network Engineer with Certifications from Codex, Motorola, Nortel, BayNetworks, Cisco and Cabletron, to name a few. My career lasted 40+ years until retirement 4 years ago.
I hope this information helps you with your own career choice. Remember, it is not easy... but, it is worth the time and effort. Most importantly, NEVER give up!

What should I do for my 30th birthday?

🎸 I never did anything for mine, I was going to wait decades and have one big music bash with bands for my Oldenth birthday, but Covid has put it off three years in a row.
🎉 So you should seize the day and have a massive party while you can!

Have you ever seen a band or artist perform live? Which ones?

So, so many! My ex is a musician and I would almost always come along to their concerts. So I have met many other bands and artists and also seen a lot from my own many. Like Architects, Beartooth, 30 Seconds To Mars, Tokio Hotel, Melanie Martinez, The Neighbourhood, Rise Against, Issues, Alesana, Twenty One Pilots, the list is endless.

Name an artist whose music shaped who you are today 🎶

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
I am not sure whether music can shape a person, but during my childhood my favourite music bands were ABBA, BoneyM, Smokie, Blondie and Bee Gees ❤️ + Bonnie Tyler and Amanda Lear 🤩 Songs of they all had perfect melody 👍 and after Bonnie I named my dog when I was 13 😅

What was your fave subject during your uni days?

When I was studying engineering I enjoyed Physics, Digital Electronics, Microprocessor theory and Networking (routers and switches). Designing, configuring and troubleshooting networks is what I enjoyed most in my career as a Network Engineer.
While studying Music at Berklee College I enjoyed playing in ensembles, harmonic theory, counterpoint, and conducting. As a musician, I enjoy playing my guitars and performing live with bands.

Wann hast du angefangen dich für Musik zu interessieren und welche Interpreten waren die ersten, die dich begeistert haben? Wie findest du sie heute?

Hat bei mir schon im Kindesalter angefangen da habe ich in 2 verschiedenen Chören gesungen und später auch mal kurze Zeit in einer Band. Eine der Bands die mich am meisten geprägt haben ware letztendlich A day to remember, aber auch Bands wie Nirvana, Metallica, Papa Roach haben mich so zum Metal geführt.

Shaireen, if you enjoy listening to the Beatles you might consider downloading their Abbey Road mp3 file. Abbey Road, in my humble opinion, is their greatest achievement and it is a wonderful recording. That said, all of their records are excellent. Abbey Road gets better with each listen.

Awee thank you for the recommendation, Alex. I actually grew up listening to the Beatles and some 60s bands coz my father was such a music lover and also loved to play guitar (haven't got the talent from him, unfortunately😂). I like the Revolver album tho☺️
