Re: Recently I've been listening to ...

Does music theory actually give any understand about how/why music works? Yes, very. Music is subjective of course, and nobody knows quite WHY we like it so much, but that's why it's such an interesting topic. However, HOW it works is extremely well known. Over centuries of musical evolution, there...

Re: What's your best time on Freefall without any shortcuts?

I've done it twice. Me. Hoyled for about a day I'd say. If I can then anyone can, and if that is not motivation enough then I don't know what is.

I found the most important part is landing correctly on the triangle, so you don't headbang but also get enough speed to get back.

I just don't see why people have to shroud things in mystery and magic in order to enjoy it.

Re: Recently I've been listening to ...

Music is quite a lot less literal than movies and books, which in some ways is more forgiving (a melody, unlike a character, doesn't need agency). However, it is also much harder to get an intricate insight into the finer details of music, which is why I think a lot of people apply some sort of myst...
