Uncut Gems is on US Netflix now apparently, so if any of you haven’t seen it and are looking for a real suspenseful movie, check it out.
For bonus material make sure to follow Wayne Diamond and any other fashion and diamond district weirdos from the film that you can find on Instagram.
Watched this last night and yes it is very stressful but in a way that distracted me from real life stress plus it was good
been meaning to watch this since december & finally got to it tonight.
i'm glad i didn't watch it in the theater because i had to take a couple breaks (partly to piss, but also to steel my nerves). even though the ending had been spoiled for me, the last 15 minutes or so had my anxiety off the damn charts. great movie.
speaking of spoilers, this part really floored me:
there's a donation link on my stream page. if you've enjoyed the content thus far (or enjoy future content) and you have the means, please consider throwin a couple bucks my way. doing so will allow me to justify spending more money on records / vhs tapes to keep the streams from gettin stale.
For those that don't read sheet music: how do you subdivide beats?
i've always been awful at counting & when i would try to subdivide in my head i would concentrate so hard on the count / keeping up that i would forget to play or lose my place. that was when i was playing bass in high school jazz band & taking intro to music class in college.
since then, for better or worse, i've developed feeling timing out based on other instruments. its not ideal, and it can lead to some awkward situations in which i'm calling out parts differently than my bandmates (like instead of stating the amount of measures i state the 'parts' which is basically the full riff i'm playing or how many times i'm playing it), but it mostly works.
i hadn't really considered that too much til you asked and now i realize how rough that is / can be.
doing more transcribing & composing in midi has me considering timing in a more productive way, but i still fall on old habits when i'm playing.
