Oh wow nice! I've been trying to fix my record player for a couple of weeks, the turntable stopped spinning.

Awesome! This is exactly what I wanted, that mans voice is fantastic and King Gizzard really evoke that western film sound, similar to Ennio Morriconne (The Good the bad and the ugly soundtrack composer)

I've had bouts of that, its no better than the late night insomnia because you still end up tired all day.

Could someone more musically competent than me explain the chords played on piano? I mean in the sense is it in minor key or something, this song and a few similar evoke a great emotion in my AI can't rightly name. Kind of a everything-is-fucked-ehich-is-sad-but-im-happy-about-it.

Same reason I gave up on Ultimate Guitar. Used to be the best site for guitar tableture, now you can't load tabs on mobile without having their app forced down your throat.

We must have a different recipie for snakebite; as a teen I was taught it was half a pint of cider mixed with half a pint of lager. I wouldn't recommend my version outside a morbid curiosity.

What I've found with them, is that you don't feel bad, but you also don't feel especially good. You just feel kind of..middle of the road. It's good, you'll be alright with things, and that feeling in itself is a great relief.

FWIW, I was on mood stabilising drugs, which I think are what antidepressants are here.

Kerbobotat  ·  3245 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Dear Hubski, Is Art Subjective or Objective and how do we Determine Good Art?

Personally, I hate a lot of modern and post modern art. Some of it, like the silent composition, or a completely blank canvas, intended to make a statement, are purely stupid to me. Picassos guernica to me, is nothing special, it looks like a childs attempt. The concept I get, but II feel I only enjoy art I can appreciate on a technical and aesthetic level. Yet there are technically brilliant pieces of art that I don't even get a reaction to, I find them boring.

Your own personal life experience will shape what you consider to be "good art". Which sounds like I'm arguing in favor of subjectivity, yet you can still make bad art, in my opinion. It's just not binary, things can have redeeming features, ita a rare piece of art that doesn't even have one.

I'm unable to take a compliment.

Lately I've been getting more involved in art, something I've loved my whole life. I'm not bad, per say, but obviously improvements can always be made (that's the main reason I drawing something every day) Its impossible for me not to feel like an imposter, someone will comment on a picture (Literally just now I got a bunch of "wow!" And "that's amazing!" Comments on Facebook on my latest one) and I immediately think 'are they being sarcastic?'

That's why I've been posting some stuff here on hubski, part of it is getting myself out there, trying to learn to take praise, and actually be proud of what I do. I still prefer when people tell me "its good but x is wrong/could be done better if you try like this". I'd rather people criticise my faults so I can improve than just outright compliment me.
