  1. Thanks

    I personally know multiple fully-vaccinated people who got Covid since being vaccinated, and there are many such stories all over the place. Many have even died. 
     
    Also, "vaccination works," yes, but do keep in mind that these shots (most of them anyway) are mRNA injections that didn't even fit the definition of "vaccine" until Merriam-Webster dictionary changed their definition of the word earlier this year, to accommodate. The CDC recently changed their definition of the word, too.
     
    Actual vaccination works, but that doesn't mean these particular shots work so well. That's why you're seeing many places with extremely high vaccination rates still experiencing surges in cases (among the vaccinated; see 118%-vaccinated Gibraltar for example).
     
    The data is out there; have a look.

    After he dies, maybe his estate will demand that all of his micro edits are preserved in all future re-releases of his scores.

    Apparently USB isn't as clean an interconnect as you'd think, especially if the cable runs longer or thinner, and bits can become lost along the way. And it doesn't transmit a steady stream like optical cables do, rather it sends data in "packets", which can make it prone to errors, and some soundcards aren't as good as others. Very interesting.
     
    I'll have to switch computers and see if my other one sounds better. If not, it might be the cheapie USB cable itself that came with the DAC.

    I'd never heard of this Cyborg character before seeing JL.
     
    I'd never seen him in DC cartoons, shows like Smallville, etc.

    Unlucky Bastard got a reaction from bruce marshall in Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity   
    I'd watch a version without that crappy score. Goes to show how magnificant they thought its Oscar winning score was by including a track without it.

    Drax, please don't create second accounts just to like your own posts.  That's truly pathetic.

    I deleted the account and that removed all the likes it provided with it.

    In all seriousness though, I think an outright prohibition on such discussion, treating us with kid gloves, is a disappointing overreaction. I'd have thought that simply having prudent rule enforcement (forum moderation) in regards to the handling of user disagreement, personal attacks etc (of which I myself can be guilty of) would have been a more proportionate middle ground to land on. The truth is, some of us just find this old place to be more interesting with more topical items to talk about. Film music is pretty boring and uninteresting these days; but there's always something in the news worth talking about. I think we're all grown up enough to calmly disagree about a great deal of it, if we really try.

    It's pointless to point out that you just posted about anyway, so I don't feel like mentioning it.

    It's the natural aging process of CD jewel case finishing. Best to just accept it as a nice patina effect.
