Santana was the only band that could still sound tight while playing on acid, and even Carlos's psychedelic days were short lived. He realized very quickly that tight blues jams are rarely produced by hallucinogenics.

Selam
Dylan? Hendrix? The Beatles?

Dylan and The Beatles didn't paly blues jams (and Dylan certainly wasn't a good harmonica player). Hendrix did play blues, but in spite of his talent, I would never describe his playing as "tight." He was all over the place, and he sounded like he was playing on acid. Great guitarist, but I never really liked his music. But that's just my two cents.

Dylan was a singer-songwriter.  As a songwriter he was great.  As a singer...not so much.

I'm not all that sold on the beetles.  They had a few good songs.  None were exceptionally great, IMHO.

Hendrix.  I really like some of his stuff.

Of all the old music, David Bowie will always be my hero.

Yeah, I like David Bowie a lot. I think David Byrne of Talking Heads was heavily influenced by Bowie.

I saw something like this on the Aliens and Nazis (History) Channel back on the Eve of the Annunciation (Catholic Good Friday).  Very interesting!  They did a reconstruction of what the face imprinted on the shroud would have looked like.  Very similar to how the Icons show our Lord.  True science and true religion usually agree!

So the tax refund will pay for my tuition this summer!!! Smiley Gonna take two courses: 1. Epistemology, 2. The Philosophy of Human Nature.

Also, this Fall I will begin my Latin courses. Smiley

Out of curiosity, what type of course on epistemology? I mean, are you going to have an overview type thing, or more like exploring one particular view in depth?
The first half of the course will be an overview of different thinkers and topics in epistemology. The second half will focus on Thomistic realism and Thomistic responses to non-realisits.

Hmm, well, enjoy, I suppose Smiley

Haha, I know not quite your cup of tea. Smiley

I was going to make a new thread of this but then I realized that probably none was interested in this. Cheesy So I just leave it here instead.

The National Library of Finland has digitalized all of it's copies of the first book ever printed for Finland. It's a Dominican missale from 15th century. The Dominican tradition had been adopted as official liturgical tradition for diocese of Turku i.e. Finnish RCs in the 14th century.

The Missale can be seen here. Click "Avaa tiedosto" in order to see different copies of it.

Fair enough. I'm not especially familiar with blues music or terminology. I've found myself listening to a lot of Springsteen and Aerosmith lately, so I might make the transition from blues-rock to blues eventually. I'll let you know what I think about LSD then.

The best anti-LSD speech I ever got was from a guy I worked with at Pizza Hut who liked his weed and drank A LOT.  He said that he would never do LSD again after he took a couple tabs, blew his entire paycheck on snacks, and laughed at a wall for 12 hours straight that he thought was pulsating and purple, and then slept for the next 36 hours.

Never gotten a speech against it per se, but I did have a friend whose dealer gave him acid-laced weed by accident. Hanging out with him kind of sucked for a little while until he figured out how to manage flashbacks.

I'll also tell you that LSD and Blues go together about as well as flutes and blues. And now, come to think of it, I can surmise how the misguided idea for "Blues flute" came about.  Wink

It's going to be cool next week for those of us in my part of GA. High is supposed to be around 50-something the entire week.

Or, as Lady Whiteadder of the second Blackadder series might say: "Cold is God's way of telling us to burn more Catholics!" Tongue

So the tax refund will pay for my tuition this summer!!! Smiley Gonna take two courses: 1. Epistemology, 2. The Philosophy of Human Nature.

Also, this Fall I will begin my Latin courses. Smiley

Out of curiosity, what type of course on epistemology? I mean, are you going to have an overview type thing, or more like exploring one particular view in depth?
The first half of the course will be an overview of different thinkers and topics in epistemology. The second half will focus on Thomistic realism and Thomistic responses to non-realisits.

Hmm, well, enjoy, I suppose Smiley

Haha, I know not quite your cup of tea. Smiley

Maybe. I don't know. Hmm. Well why not? Who knows. Wait, wut? I'm so confused! Or is it confuzzled? Anyway, carry on then  Smiley

That's how I always heard it as well, until a few years ago when I was watching youtube vids.

Americans have a tendency to try to "standardise" the pronunciation of English with little regard for etymological quirks and the like. I say, we should all just accept that English is inconistent and there is often little clue in the spelling of a word as to how it should pronounced.

Dictionary.com, while not the most reputable source, lists buh-nal, -nahl, beyn-l as acceptable.

Anyway, I have only ever heard buh-NAHL, never BEYN-l.

I am going to have to re-take my road test. I can't believe it.

It's mostly my fault because of my procrastination, but I'm going to blame it on Ohio's stupid laws. Long story short: my current license is out-of-state, and I have to take Ohio's written exam before they'll issue me an Ohio license. Fine. BUT, my New Mexico license expires tomorrow- and of course, is nowhere to be found. So, when I go to take my written test tomorrow, if I don't have it to show them, they can't waive the road test. So unless I can persuade the nice lady at the examination station to let me pull up my driving record on the NM DMV's website (for a fee of $6) to prove I'm licensed (which is not likely), I will have to re-take the damned test. In most other states (in my experience, anyway), your license has to be expired for 4-5 years before they'll make you take the road test again... but nooooooooooo. Not Ohio.

It would be hilarious if it weren't happening to me.  Undecided

I can confirm that getting a driver's license in Ohio is a serious hassle.

We are all going to have to agree that English spoken in different parts of the world are in fact different languages.  Like Chinese, they are still written the same, but spoken entirely differently.  I've never heard buh-NAHL, always pronounced it BEYN-l!

I posed the pronunciation question on my Twitter account. Every response I got back was the "beyn-l/bay-nul" version.

What a banal question you ask us. Wink

Personally, I prefer BAY-nul, because it rhymes with anal.
