    I really need to hook up with a non-irritating philosophy professor so they can locate the exact philosophical terminology for my positions so I can avoid finding out that some term which in common speech means that meat tastes good actually means meat tastes good and you should masturbate on leather furniture only on Lent or something.

    So goddamn annoyed with philosophers ruining useful words.

    The song on the other, or "b" side of the record was most times not an album track

    Thus, b-side

    yeah, I was gonna say...Bare Naked Ladies?

    The 90's was a throwback to the 70's, it was a reaction to the almost futurism and abstraction of 80's music. It's why EVERYTHING is an acoustic or amplified acoustic instrument. The reason the 80's nostalgia in music has been going on for so long is not that it is not nostalgia at all -- the progression of pop music from 50's-80's has been resumed.

    This is some bullshit right here. Everything is an acoustic? What the shit is this? Nirvana did more than just their "unplugged" concert.

    The best music of the 90s was an outgrowth of the good half of 80s music. EG: Metal. You can trace it back to a very few pioneers in the 70s (Dead Kennedys, Queen etc...) but seriously: Fuck Disco

    I think the "nostalgia" for the shitty half of the 80s is more a testament to the popularity and availability of E than anything else.

    The guitar is an acoustic instrument. Even an electric guitar has a pick-up that picks up the acoustic waves. There is a reason that overdrive (Big muff Pi, etc) came back in the 80's but you do not see a lot of bit-crushing, wave-table moduluation, etc. Distortion is simply a degradation in acoustic audio quality. Sooooo...you're wrong there.

    Metal is not pop music. And people that say fuck disco are generally losers who don't like to dance.

    Annnnnnd you might be right about the last part :P

    Everything you just said about how an electric guitar works is either incorrect or stated sufficiently incorrectly that it would be unreasonable to expect people to assume you have any idea what you're talking about. Electric guitars are absolutely not acoustic instruments. The pickups translate fluctuating magnetic resonance into electrical signals, the sound happens at the amp. Distortion pedals can alter the electrical signals without degrading them perceptibly if it's a good pedal.

    Oh, does a guitar cord turn the electroacoustic wave into a digital oscillation somehow? Oh, I must be terribly wrong. You're right -- it turned the acoustic forments into binaries. How stupid of me.

    The signal the pickups pick up is not acoustic. And forment isn't a real word but I figured out what you meant and no, the signal the pickups pick up was never acoustic. There is an acoustic wave generated by the strings but it doesn't produce anything like the same sound, and it never enters the guitar. A functionally identical waveform is generated by the metal in the string moving, inducing, above the pickup which the pickup turns into an electrical signal that the amp then turns into sound. How are you a DJ?

    Because I'm right? It is not a digital or virtual or midi instrument -- which all use binary to make sound, it works on the electroacoustic wave. And, as usual, you're just being a troll.

    Making up a new word to pretend it was the word you were using all along doesn't make you right, ace. It also doesn't make me a troll. Your claim is that all guitars, including electric guitars, are acoustic. They are not by either definition or mechanism. And then you're trying to tell me that I must think the cord is magic if I don't think the sound comes from the sound of the strings moving, as if there were no such thing as an amp. And then the difference between the sound the same guitar makes on different amps. The machine cannot receive sound-input in any way, it is not an acoustic instrument. And distortion still doesn't necessitate loss. Just changes, it's one of those things people use math to make and if you pay them more some of them will use better math.
