    THERE'S A NEW KAPTAINKRISTIAN VIDEO. Only his third in as many years.

    This is good but every time I see a Shining analysis I can't help but think of

    The Theme to Flash Gordon is probably my favorite Queen song, what's yours?

    Somebody to Love is such a fucking all timer killer jam and one of my go-to karaoke choices.

    Killer Queen here.

    It’s just got so much lyrical quality to it.

    Yes, one of my absolute favs, as well

    Along with, of course:

    my basic bitch opinion is Under Pressure is probably up there as far as my favorite go to Queen. Partly for the lyrics/musicality and partly because it's also david bowie so like, bonus

    The only Queen song I ever karaoke is Bohemian Rhapsody, and even that only when there's a nice big group to join in and drown me out.

    I don't mind being bad at singing, but for most any other Queen song I can't even come close to getting it right, to the point that it annoys even me (an extreme rarity when it comes to me and karaoke).

    "Too much love will kill you, just as sure as none at all" is cemented into my brain.

    Generally, Made In Heaven is an amazing album. "Mother Love" from it is the last song he recorded for.

    On his website, May discussed the writing process he and Mercury had (writing both separately and together, and conscious of the nature of the song and the lyrics), the statement that he made, "And Freddie at that time said 'Write me stuff... I know I don't have very long; keep writing me words, keep giving me things I will sing, then you can do what you like with it afterwards, you know; finish it off' and so I was writing on scraps of paper these lines of 'Mother Love', and every time I gave him another line he'd sing it, sing it again, and sing it again, so we had three takes for every line, and that was it... and we got the last verse and he said 'I'm not up to this, and I need to go away and have a rest, I'll come back and finish it off...' and he never came back".The last part of song was sung by Brian May.

    The best way to go to a theme park is to live near and have an annual pass so you can just ignore rides with wait times over half an hour, or go by yourself and do single rider.

    as someone who lives a 5 minute drive from one of the best parks in America yes this

    also @Stilts Cedar Point rules but it can certainly be extremely busy too. If you manage to go on a relatively light day though it IS possible to ride every coaster in the park in one day. I've done it (granted, when there were a couple less), although hoo boy was I exhausted. I used to live about a two hour drive away and we'd go about once a year. Since I moved south though I haven't been back and I really want to, especially now that Mean Streak, which was genuinely HORRIBLE to ride, has been fixed/remade into what looks like one of the best coasters in the world, Steel Vengeance.

    ... I'm kind of an amusement park/roller coaster aficionado, ok

    Yep. Old jazz trombone technique, using a (toilet) plunger as a mute.



    Jazz trumpeters often use sink plungers instead because of the size difference.

    Seems pretty hard to make one of your hands a reverse mirror of the other so you can play the same stuff on two different keyboards while doing hyper fast jazz calculus off the cuff.

    The idea of using both a straight mute and a plunger mute at the same time just blows my 20-year elapsed Euphonium playing mind.

    Euphoniums and Trombones sound very similar, just one is valved and obviously can't easily do the sliding parts. I have all the respect in the world for trombone players.

    While we're obliquely talking about Wynton Marsalis, here is a video of still the most impressive thing I've ever seen someone do on a brass instrument with special guest conductor John Williams the Star Wars guy.

    Fun fact, that last note is what it sounds like when an angel reaches orgasm.

    Trombones have a cylindrical bore and Euphoniums have a conical bore so there's a difference in tone.

    Instruments with a conical bore sound more mellow, thicker and richer. Trumpets have a cylindrical bore and sound bright, cornets have a conical bore and sound more rich, and flugel horns have an even more pronounced conical bore and sound richer still even though all three are chromatically the same instrument.

    new wayneradiotv series, a
    sort of successor to Half-Life VR But The AI Is Self-Aware

    On June 1st, 2021, twitch streamer 'wayneradiotv' was linked to a workshop page for a newly uploaded mod for Half-Life: Alyx. A mod that would "breathe life" into Gnome Chompski. He installed it, hoping to make the stream of his "gnome run" more interesting. He was not aware of the myth, but that didn't matter anymore. The following footage is documentation of the "Gnome Edition's" existence and what its discovery unleashed into the world.

    A "gnome run" is a phenomenon that exists within a handful of Valve titles. Unlike a normal playthrough, the player must collect a small garden gnome at the start of the run, referred to as "Gnome Chompski", and carry him to the end of the game. This run can be completed in Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Left 4 Dead 2, and Half-Life: Alyx. 1.5% of Alyx players have successfully completed a "gnome run", granting them the achievement "Gnome Vault of My Own".

    In an interview shortly after Half-Life: Alyx's SDK release in 2020, Gabe Newell requested that the modding community avoid tampering with files pertaining to the "gnome run" claiming that "certain modifications may make completing the challenge next to impossible, and render the achievement unobtainable". As players speculated on his words, rumors sprung forth that there is a special version of the "gnome run" that can only be accessed via the modification of said files. Exactly what must be done to the game to access this "Gnome Edition" of Half-Life: Alyx is not known.

    Some tried to find the truth of the "Gnome Edition", but all documented attempts led to dead ends or bricked games. The "Gnome Edition" was dismissed as mere myth hyped up by overzealous fans.

    It wasn't a myth.

    So I live in Kenosha (yes, *that* Kenosha). Right now, there is no train service between Milwaukee and Chicago unless you take Amtrak's Hiawatha line, which doesn't stop in my city. (There is a second line, Metra, that goes from Kenosha to Chicago, but not North, and at a train station that is no where near the Amtrak line). Hiawatha leaves 5 times a day, and one-way is $25 with a reservation.

    The locomotives they use are absolutely ill-fitted for these lines.
    Hiawatha uses a F40PHR for the north half and...
    Metra uses a F40PHM-2 for the southern half.
    Both of these are diesel–electric designed for hauling a half-mile of fright cars as opposed to 3 to 4 cars of a commuter line.

    My area was selected to be a new high-speed rail location during the Obama administration which our then governor pissed and moaned about. It was set to go from Chicago, to Milwaukee and then off to Madison and to the Twin Cities.
    Having grew up in Japan, I was hoping for a nice shared commuter line with a train something along the lines of the 205 you would find on the Yamanote line and then something sleek and sexy like a 500 series for the high speed express route.
    When the line was fighting for it's life, they finally announced the train they would be using. It was the MP36PH-3S. The same tired diesel-electric fright hauler that is is just a sneeze away from it fright counterparts. After that I gave up on the whole thing.
    The incumbent fright lines around here will be damned if we are going to electrify any line of track. Trying got get an actual commuter/high speed line started will require so much political capital it will not be worth the effort.

    The F40PH is actually designed as a short haul passenger train. It does not have the gearbox to haul freight (although some variants have been modified to make it suitable for freight cargo).

    It's from the 70s however, and diesel trains have been horribly underdeveloped until very recently since none of the wealthy countries really operate diesel-passenger lines except ireland, northern england and the US (and Canada?). I think the only really "modern" diesel or diesel-electrics for passenger use that are rolling around are the Siemens Charger trains and the Bombardier ALP-45s (trains that are capable of operating at high speed in both diesel and electric mode). And they only entered the market in the last 10 years.

    Another problem is that most US backbone lines are operated Cargo First, meaning that it's generally difficult to operate a train on those lines that doesn't move at the relatively sedate pace of a mile-long cargo hauler.
