"This thread came back from the dead ... :)
For virtual organs: I just downloaded Ubuntu Studio linux and installed it, and it came with Aolus, which is a pretty impressive classical organ soft-synth, if you want to experiment..."
Is it manly at all to whine about how society is so anti-manly? It's really mind-boggling for me to read all the BS on the internet that tries to portray white males as victims in America.
I'm a white male, and I think…"
"I think it's wrong to generalize about women in the corporate world. Sometimes, we tend to look at successful women, and view the traits that contributed their success through a magnifying lens. It's not that the woman who gets…"
"I was a wise-ass kid, hanging out with a crowd of wise ass kids. There was a playground in the neighborhood, where my grandfather and a bunch of other old Italian men would sit around on the "old man bench", talk, read the paper,…"
"Those do look fairly simple to me - basically bands, with some decoration. I've seen lots of wedding rings like that. But my "objection" was really more of a joke - If you like them, you should wear them. "
"Interesting comments on the watch. About the only thing I look for in a watch nowadays is being able to see what time it is without having to put on my reading glasses. Almost the only time I use a wristwatch is when I'm traveling -…"
"I just use an oversized, wide coffee cup (or maybe it's a soup bowl with a cup handle?) that I got at a yard sale for a quarter or so. The wide width relative to the height really helps build up lather.

I don't know any other Greek musicians here, unfortunately. But it's almost better that you're more interested in modern Greek culture since most members are more familiar with ancient Greece. But we always need a healthy dose of modern Greek culture to talk about. Speaking of which... I'm hungry for a gyro now...
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details.
"Alot of things decide sentence severity. One of those is previous record.
I could be wrong but my understanding of most of the statistics only include severity of the single crime, not previous offenses."
"and so there is a good argument to be made that the differences in sentences were motivated by racial animus, rather than a desire to punish trafficking in more dangerous substances more severely.
My instincts would be that the differences in…"
"There is documented evidence that, for otherwise identical crimes, whites routinely receive a significantly lighter sentence than people of color. So, yes, it does appear that a racial bias does exist.
Whether this is an institutional…"
