As advanced and modular papolar DAW have become nothing will replace a live performance. But that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about recorded sounds that are assembled to create a score. It's still valid and the composer still put hard work into composing arranging this piece of music.

As I sit at the lunch table and see half of the people with their faces buried in their cell phone. twitching at every creek, buzz , bleep like it was the most important thing in the world.

I am just sad.

I am just not narcissistic enough to believe that everything that is sent to my phone is that important that I have to break the conversation that we're having. whether it’s last night's game or the trip Kev just took.

NSA spying on people is like 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon except it's 2 degrees and it's you and the rest of the world.
(If I knew how to make a tag line this would be it)

If they are following a member of Al-Qaida in the US and you come within 10 feet of him knowingly or not. Your phone will be tagged.

by setrops (#44640927) Attached to: <em>Diablo 3</em> Expansion Announced: <em>Reaper of Souls</em>

They turned a good stand alone game, Diablo 2 into a semi MMO grind. With a real money auction house and short content.

They basically sucked all the fun out of the game.

Blizzard changed about 3 or 4 years ago when they wanted to implement Real ID. They wanted to make WoW a Facebook of sort. Ever since it's all been about how to extract more money from their game than making a game shine on it;s own merits.

The day of the stand alone game is over. They all want you connected. You;re a revenue stream.

It's all sad really
