Re: Musicians' thread

agvs - yeah, I think you might be right about the different worlds part. I study opera at a very traditional university so that's probably why I'm stressing technique, but I do stand by my previous comments and I do believe strongly in the importance of singing in a healthy way. BobbyZamora - I thi...

Re: Musicians' thread

agvs can see where you're coming from, but there is a "right" and a "wrong" way of singing. What you're talking about is more style, not singing. They are linked, but technique is the basis for everything. Even blues and rock singers need to know how to breathe correctly. You're...

Re: Musicians' thread

BobbyZamora - regarding singing, I'm going to have to agree with the people who suggest you get a vocal coach. If you're at all interested in seriously singing, you will need one. It is easy to damage your vocal cords/voice irreparably with incorrect or sloppy technique. I'm a little biased (ok may...

Re: the constant canvas: skincare!

It cleared up my acne in about 6 months and I haven't really broken out since. Retin-A is prescription only in the U.S. and I haven't ...

I've been trying to read Anna Karenina for about three years now, and it's only been this week that I've managed to make any headway. I'm about halfway through, on page 400. It's the first Tolstoy I've ever read and really the first book by a Russian author I've ever read. Amazing characterization, ...

Re: ramdom thoughts

while on the topic of speech, how often do you use swear words?

where do you come from?

are there any words commonly described as a "swear" or "curse" words that you feel uncomfortable using?

what is the most creative use of fuck in a sentence?

etc.

if you text someone and they wait 24 hours to respond. you respond promptly, and they wait another long period of time to respond. basically implicitly letting you know that you are a low priority in their life.

Re: ramdom fashion thoughts

I'm starting to care less and less about what I wear. I can't even remember the last time I visited a fashion blog and I haven't been following any of the new collections.

I probably shouldn't be on this board anymore. On the plus side, I will suddenly have a lot of money.

I didn't mean to imply that sexism is equal to grudges.

This simply isn't true. For vario...
