Generally most people's favorite music is whatever they listened to around the decades they were of ages 15-25 is my assumption.

I read a study about 2 years ago which states that most people's peak attachment to music was between 16-19. Basically more time to commit to music, etc. I wonder if that will change given how music is now consumed (for those not named GG).

Personally is true; 1985 to about 1990 is when the bulk of my favorite records/artists were released. But I prob listen to more music across a larger time frame than most

Yeah my view is based on nothing other than my personal experience haha.

For me it was about 1995-2001. But I have been exploring lately and just been listening to random stuff to see if I like it. And I've found quite a lot.

I've always used Google play though just because it's bundled with youtube premium. I'm guessing the majority of users use iTunes or Spotify though.

Somewhat related, one of my favorite comedic bits is the Elephant in the room from Patrice O'Neal where he talks about the difference between Natalie Holloway and some Peruvian girl. And if he ever goes sailing he'd have a white baby on a key chain for safety.

We actually pulled off a bomb pot at 1/2 last week. My room usually has too many old nits that look at you like youre an ahole for even suggesting it, but we managed to have none at this table.

I came close to having a bomb pot once. Old guy UTG was the lone holdout. He then looked at his cards, folded, went for a smoke break, and waited for his next BB before coming back in.

re: ***"The Pen:" Official LLSNL Chat Thread***

I played at a table where we actually pulled off one every down. It was 1/3 $300 max buy-in and we'd put in $20 so it was basically jam or fold on the flop. I hit two pair twice and held up against 2 all ins and in another pot against 3 all ins.

I hated it, felt so thin each time because lots of draws were out there.

Hi guys!

Sorry I missed the big send-off.


Its around that time of the year and since I have know so many inspiring people in this thread im curious if you fellas would share with me your 2020 new years resolutions.

I'll go first:

1) I hope to be AT LEAST interviewing for some type of position relating to programming/technology before the years end.

2) I've managed to get the boozahol under control and am maintaining a relatively stable weight of 208-210. I think instead of setting a weight loss goal I am going to set a strength goal. Tbh im not sure what type of process-oriented goal I should set. I am open to your guise fawts.


3) Start divorce proceedings || Mrs.Deadfish gets it together.

3a) Marry my girlfriend 3b) Breakup with my girlfriend

4) Learn basic Hokkien.

5) harvest at least one deer. (this season kinda sucked for me)

Is there anything you can't actually hear on youtube regular.

In a related story, I'm still waiting for a horror movie where a beer gutted MAWG develops psychic powers.

idk I haven't had youtube regular in maybe 3 or 4yrs. For me the main thing is
that everything I watch is ad free. I was over a friend's house once and pulled up something on their computer and I thought it was unwatchable with the amount of ads they put in each video now.

I think they also have some other content like movies and tv shows.

I mainly use it to watch stand up comedy, battle rap, Funk Flex freestyles, Joe Rogan's podcast, and look up different tutorials on things.

Do you guise think there will ever be a time where everyone is super white and privileged like Mr. Spyutastic where most people live in a world where advertising doesn't exist because they are so rich they can literally pay companies money to keep doing what they are doing which is providing a free service to hundreds of millions of people.

Crack rock in any time interval is clearly the best choice. With enough crack rock, I dont even care that ads are playing.

sounds like good goals, as someone who speaks fluent Chinese though, unless you already speak Mandarin fluently and/or your new girl Haka then that's literaly going to be the biggest waste of time you could possibly do

non-native speakers sound utterly ridiculous and unintelligible and the amount of people who speak Hokkien shrinks by the year so it's utility is ever decreasing

seriously, imagine combining the worst elements of Bruno and Borat's accents... but it's worse than that, because those guys still speak fluently and intelligibly, add in that nobody can understand half of the words you say and it'll become an utter shat show

there are major male/female styles of speech in the Chinese dialects as well as distinctive differences based on your social class. The son of a taxi driver from Beijing will sound nothing like the son of a government official from Beijing even if they lived in the same apartment building. They'll use different accents and very different word choices as well.

So most non native speakers, they pick up off who they interact with more. Which is almost always women and people who deal in customer service. So you'll almost always sound like their equivalent of white trash plus over the top effeminate and have utterly no idea. You'll think it's cool you're communicating in another language and have no idea you're a laughingstock.

Not saying that can't be overcome, but it adds in a difficulty factor and few, if anyone will tell you because they are just impressed you can speak at all.

I am fluent in mandarin, yet I'll speak in English and rely upon translators in anything formal because I'll lose all credibility once I speak their language. It's not at all rational but if you keep it in English you maintain dignity despite that they'll be the ones speaking in a second language, if you learn their language, then suddenly all bets are off.

As for coding stuff... it sounds like you're doing a late career switch. All I can say is that you should build, build, build. If you have something functional to show off, even a website or a script you used to data mine for fantasy football research then it'll go a very long way because then they can see tangible accomplishments.

good luck and feel free to pm me about learning Chinese... which I'll try to help you with if you still refuse to take my advice and give up on trying to learn it

realistically, it'll take you 1 years of constant study and practice before you could handle someone being able to understand 80% of what you say when you tell them about the weather and another year before they understand it more or less - but you could practice daily for years and still sound like a blathering idiot each time you talk - that's the real ceiling to the language and few not born speaking it can "blend in" so to speak, this isn't like an Indian English accent, this is as i described full on worst of borat and bruno combined

then you gotta factor in that the people you are learning from may not even be speaking standard hokkien... for example, most chinese still need to learn Chinese, it's a highly fragmented language - during the civil war in the 40s, when an army crossed a river or mountain pass, the first thing they'd do was find a translator who spoke the same dialect because most of China was unable to communicate with each other verbally until they started teaching a common dialect of mandarin under Mao
