Nah talking about beats or bass is fine if the beats/bass are ok.

If you brag about drinking/smoking weed/drugs, your song sucks. It's uniformly the worst part of most rap and country and the biggest signifier that the singer is a 19 year-old who got lucky and has nothing to share. This can be offset if the beat or construction is good enough, but being real it's almost never good enough. It can also be offset if you've actually going a thematic point to the subject like how the substances are a crutch or communicate what the drug is like (good trap music does this). Instead you could at least talk about loving. loving implies some level of effort and achievement at getting another human being to do something with you. All drug/alcohol talk does is say "I had money and time."

No, this is strawberries and cream:



If they're labelling strawberry ice-cream "strawberries and cream", that's misleading and dumb. It's literally just strawberry ice-cream, not "strawberry and cream ice-cream".

Also gently caress mechanical keyboards. Y'all fuckers sound like a bunch of yalkity sax.

They're just nice to type on. The physical pressure required to press the keys and the actual click when you do makes it easier to type quickly and accurately.

mech keyboards are probably better when youre a touch typist because the individual clicks turn into a rhythmic buzzing sort of sound

I have a mechanical keyboard but I only use my index fingers and have to stare at my hands when I type.

If left hand leaves wasd, I can't get back without stopping what I'm doing and looking at it when playing anything.

Function keys on laptops should only do their assigned keybind stuff by default. Making them do poo poo like change the volume or mute things or alter brightness should require hitting Fn or changing a setting.

It does when your hands are fast but you have the overall dexterity of a drunken macaw trying to find a groove in a coconut. I mean I can type on low-profiles fine but my pinky and the backspace key get real real acquainted. Mechanical keyboards are nice for giving me a tactile roadmap for my stupid, fat fingers to follow. Quiet keycaps though, because I live with other people and am not a monster.

The lack of an industry standard on this is especially annoying, as you can get very used to one function and then look like a clod using someone else's equipment.

i didnt mean you could type better on them but when you type fast the sound becomes less like a series of clicks and more like a pleasing rattle

I frankly love my logi cheap rear end kb with nighttime functions like play/skip for my classical collection on itunes.

And then I drop it off the bed and it hits the calculator button located on the top right.
