Just Shmooze / Re: Jewish Music (New CDs, hock, and opinions)
« on: Yesterday at 03:46:12 PM »
I just listened to a couple of songs of Chabad classics. It's totally different than epic music. Regular instrumental music like chabad classics is just supposed to be nice music and if you happen to get chills from the music then even better.

Epic music has a totally different feel to it. It's music that's supposed to give you chills through a build up of the music. That is the purpose of it. I can't really explain it, you have to listen to it to get what I mean.
I hear you.
I had only clicked the first link from the samples you posted and compared to a lot of the other stuff it's, well, not quite so epic. That one seems more like the nigunim style.
Now that I listened to a bit more I know exactly what you're talking about.

Open letter to any composer and producer of music on the forums:

I think there is a certain niche in music that hasn't been touched by the Jewish industry that has potential. I don't think there is a name to this genre of music it's just called "epic music".  It's basically just music without any people singing. But it's not comparable at all to classical music. The emotions that can be evoked through this type of music is much more intense. I personally enjoy this type of music very very much and would love to see Jewish composers trying to make such music.

If you search on YouTube for "epic music" you can find plenty of examples made by goyim. But alot of them have choirs of men and women singing in them. And a lot of them have not tzniusdik thumbnails. So I'll try to find links that are suitable in that respect and post them here for you to understand how this music is different than anything else.

There is a reason that I think that this type of music might not be appropriate for frum people.

Let me start by saying that this type of music can be separated into two types. One is emotional/sad/uplifting type, and one is epic/heroic type. So the epic/heroic type can bring about a feeling of "kochi ve'otzem yodi asa li es hachayil hazeh". But I still think that if you have the proper mindset when listening to such music, it shouldn't be a problem.

This type of music isn't expensive to produce as far as I know. One person can do it all on FL Studio, it just takes time. So why isn't there a single CD with such music?
It sounds to me like instrumental nigunim albums (e.g. the Chabad Classics series) fit the bill of what you're looking for.

I'm gonna get a serious bellyache trying to swallow that one.  Run that math by me again?
As a lawyer you should have no trouble understanding this.

The same way 150 years worth of billable hours can fit into 100 years, 150 years' worth of climate data can fit into 100 years.

this empirical observation
I doubt you're using "empirical" properly here.

CMIIW but I don't think "empirical observation" is the correct term for an observation that "there seem to be many more now."

Way too many refugees moving in over the past 2 years. Don't need the marketing anymore.
How does that saying go? "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it?"

But one thing to remember is that Gates has given away a lot of his fortune to charity. Gates’ current net worth is $93.3 billion and over the past 20 years he has given away stock and cash that would be worth about $60 billion today That would put his net worth at more than $150 billion if he had kept it.

I don't get it though, ORD or MSP kids would never have school if that were true.
I'm gonna assume "too cold" is all relative to what you're used to / expect the typical child to have the gear to handle.

Now if I ask are blacks big on tans I could see why some might think that is racial.
well considering you're asking a question about skin coloring, I'm not sure grouping people based on their skin color is out of bounds for that question.

Just Shmooze / Re: Rubashkin freed from prison.
« on: January 07, 2018, 06:20:19 PM »
Now, what other excuse is there for such misconduct other than antisemitism?
Well one other possibility is just plain old fashioned corruption, maybe they were bought off by the unions who were warring with Rubashkin?

Whatever the motivation was, this entire case stinks from beginning to end. Is there any argument about that? Or are we only arguing about the motives of the judge and prosecution?
