Interesting. Especially the bleeding retinas part.

Ugh I hate modern journalism. Why is the f-bomb dropped so effing often in this piece anyway? What added value does it bring? Call me old-fashioned, I don't care. I skimmed through most of the article because I found it increasingly difficult to take the author (who is obviously biased) serious in any way.

What a horrendous article. My favorite part is:

Quote:

Notice how the top line has almost five million (approx.) as many black dots as the second line? That top bit is the soloist, who is carrying the melody while everyone else is chugging along playing long tones. There is only one soloist, thus the name. So if you're in an orchestra, you're almost certainly in that "everyone else" category, basically serving as bland background noise for the guy everyone came to hear.


Not enough eye-rolling for this.

Because it is Cracked.com. I loathe that website and refuse to go to it. They are nothing but page hit/counter trolls! Stop giving them a reason to be around!
