Well, if you mean a certain stairway to a certain conception of an afterlife, then no, partly because the bassline starts about halfway through but mostly because even if I did play it, they wouldn't recognise it, it sounds nothing like the guitar part lol. It's actually got a pretty difficult bassline, I need to learn it properly methinks...

And yes, it will be mine. Oh yes. (*drools at Fender Highway 1 J-Bass*)

Your hobby wins. It wins epicly. I have no idea why you are single, because I would consider that hobby a reason to marry you.

Hey, somewhat related to the opening hobby, does anybody know if it's illegal to get music from the google trick where you type
"index of" "Artist Name" mp3 -php -htm -html

I've been doing that a lot recently, and just now kinda remembered that getting music online for free is kinda, well, illegal. I was under the impression for like a minute that maybe since I was snagging it from google it'd be cool, but now I realize I may have a lawsuit on my hands.

"Is it legal?" may be contested. (Lots of the RIAA's arguments for damages revolve around the idea that you're not just getting it for free, you're making it available to others for free as well, which is how they "justify" $3,000/song damages.) You are at virtually no risk for lawsuits, though, as I think they prefer to go after bigger fish or at the very least torrent-users and people whom the "making available" claim applies to.

I have this effect on apple computers. Considering my College English for Non-Lit Majors (actually called Rhetoric) takes place in one of the schools 'Apple computer Labs'... yea, I've had to retake that class, second time I just used my laptop and that seemed to work.

A varient on this, I imagine large robots fighting each other in the city. Some buildings get totalled, some remain relativly undamaged, it depends totally on how the fight goes.
