Walkingdead's Deep Thoughts: November 1, 20-12

  • I can't believe it's already November

  • It's true what they say, the older you get, the fast time is perceived.

  • That experiment was done before.  It holds true.

  • If you wan't to do it yourself try it at home like this.

  • Get a large group of children, a large group of adults, and a large group of old people.

  • Tell them to count to one minute in their head,   when they get to one minute they raise their hands.

  • the majority of old people will get to one minute before the majority of regular adults, and them faster than the children.

  • The actual time doesn't matter, its all about the perception of time.

  • Lets see the Daily Kos do an article about that.

  • I'm really excited for Tuesday.  I have no idea what I'm going to make for dinner, but it's gonna be great.

  • I'm not sure if I wan't to treat it like a drinking holiday or not... you know like Christmas.

  • I just found out about THESE guys today, they're pretty good.

  • All I've been reading about the past day or so is all the people who are angry because of power and gas outages due to Sandy.

  • I can understand being frustrated, and bummed because of this or that due to the hurricane.

  • But how can you be angry that you don't have power?  This isn't some random power outage that just hit a few blocks because a transformer blew.

  • This was  a storm caused by Al Gore that trampled the east coast.


  1. Banjo, mandolin, fiddle...I'm sold.

    That Trampled By Turtles song actually would work as a punk song I think. It was definitely fast enough, and the guy's singing style kind of reminded me of 90s punk.

    I think the banjo player was so fat the rest of the band, and the singer, were having some trouble keeping up.

    Fine pickin'.

  2. yeah I had a buddy recommend them to me because I love both punk and old country... it is the perfect blend of the two... well close to the perfect blend.

    1. I don't think I can zumba to that, is all I'm saying.

    2. I like punk, hate country, but love bluegrass. Don't get silly country confused with bluegrass.

      There are few sounds worse in this world than that whiney steel guitar. I think all steel guitars should be deported to Antarctica, along with Bloomberg, Obama, Gore, and Michael Moore.

    3. Ok, Keln, I hate country. Period. What is the difference between country and bluegrass?

      Hahaha I know Lactose agrees about the steel guitar. I am ashamed to admit I don't even know what it sounds like.

    4. Country is like redneck pop music, basically.

      Bluegrass is American folk music. All stringed instruments and a focus on harmony in singing. It uses instruments like the fiddle, mandolin, guitars, banjo, the upright bass, and the dolbro. A lot of people consider the banjo to be the premier instrument of bluegrass, but not all bands necessarily use it. Bluegrass songs are generally of an old-time quality, and most modern bluegrass bands still play and sing songs that are very old.

      I love bluegrass for all of the reasons I can't stand country.

      And the steel guitar is that whiny noise you hear during country songs. It is also used for Hawaiian music a lot. Bad, touristy Hawaiian music.
