i'm looking into ways to expand the the multimedia in these things, preferably through video production, but the film analysis alone takes hours on top of hours to get through. maybe next season i will expand it to include some cool graphics stuff
yeah it's pretty hard to tone down. chances are i'll just keep current setup for playing at home but grab a full stack for gigs. 100w on that stack is more than enough to play a small to medium sized set with full accompaniment and not have to plug into a system
gibson es-335. for now i just have a 15w tube head on top of a 4x10 slanted cab but within a few months i'll grab a 100w head and full 4x12 stack. this is my first tube head... i'll never go back to solid state
lol cops execute black people all the time for starting to drive away from the scene and call it use of a deadly weapon because it was in gear. major props to the officer on the scene for not emptying his firearm through the front windshield, but it's hard to imagine this going down exactly the same way if the suspect was a 20-something black male. especially in gastonia
i don't think the nfl is actively deciding that these actions are equivalent. the penalty probably encompasses a wide variety of offenses and penalizes them uniformly, regardless of where on the scale of bad to awful the offense actually falls. maybe the nfl should review that policy though.
one of the (perhaps unintentional) results of the southern strategy was the courting a fundamentalist evangelical bloc that prior to the 1980s had very little expression politically. combined with a post-vietnam malaise that he reached critical mass by the time reagan took office, it helped spark a religious and patriotic fervor in the 1980s as a backlash to everything that'd come out of the 60s: social upheaval, sexual immorality, post-nationalism. crusaders from lynn cheney to ronald reagan demanded returns to an older image of america, and as part of this crusade they appealed to the evangelical base and integrated them into the GOP constituency. they haven't looked back since, and the explosion of evangelical affiliation (the church is growing, not dying, contrary to popular beliefs) has led to an increased presence in the voting power of fundamentalist christians, as seen with the rise of the tea party, a movement that aligns itself with theologies and doctrines that insist its political values are scriptural. in turn, the movement itself (and its kin movements) help inform the nature of religious belief in an ever-evolving, symbiotic relationship. there's no other way to explain someone as patently dumb as ben carson developing such deep base of supporters. no breadth, just depth. barry goldwater was right.
