re: Is anyone familiar with Phantom Time Hypothesis? - kingbob
[quote]Basically, fringe historians create ridiculous theories with circumstantial support and peddle and use them for notoriety.[/quote] Is this really any different than sports writers, movie reviewers, journalists and bogging SJW's making "hot takes" trolling for clicks?...

re: Equipment Progression Question - kingbob
1. Equipment won't make your playing or technique any better. It can only make what you play sound more clear. If you're good, you'll sound better. If you're bad, you'll sound worse. 2. A quality instrument is only a slight difference in tone. The real difference is in its ability to consiste...

re: Who here has made the switch from primarily Fender guitars to Gibson? - kingbob
I would say the opposite. Strats have those cutting highs and are easy to play while doing bends, dive bombs, and tapping arpeggios. Gibsons have that thick, rich sound perfect for powerful chords. Plus Strats typically have whammy bars whereas LP’s rarely, if ever, have a bridge which can support a...

re: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? - kingbob
Surviving Christmas Home Alone Christmas with the Kranks Christmas Vacation Just Friends All would be basically the same movie if they simply changed the name, and changed the calendar from Christmas to Thanksgiving. No one would argue those aren't Christmas movies, yet people often use th...

re: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? - kingbob
[quote]There are a million reasons why it isn’t.[/quote] And several obvious reasons why it is, like the repeated use of Christmas themes and jokes, the fact that it takes place around Christmas, and involves a Christmas party which is integral to the plot. The same logic pattern used to say t...

[quote]The caveat you mentioned about it copying is true of pretty much every ancient work.[/quote] THAT'S THE POINT!!!! The whole point is that we can't trust any sources which causes the whole theory to become a reducto ad absurdum. The whole purpose is to question what you think you know a...

re: Is anyone familiar with Phantom Time Hypothesis? - kingbob
The oldest copy of that book is written from after the phantom time. The dates could have been changed. That’s the whole point of this stupid theory, to point out that there really are no primary sources written prior to the 15th century, only copies, largely made by a small group of people all belo...

[quote] By the time of the Umayyad invasion, North Africa was once again a province of Rome, with the Vandals having been defeated in 530 or so[/quote] Which means both events happened in largely the same fashion in fairly close proximity with the same people being attacked in much the same way a...

re: Who here has made the switch from primarily Fender guitars to Gibson? - kingbob
[quote]their new guitars are pure shite.[/quote] There’s no consistency or quality control, which is unacceptable for a product at that price point. Gibson still makes some seriously incredible guitars, but they also make a lot of lemons, and there’s no way to predict which you’re going to get buy...
