Thanks for those posts @Ron Nasty and @meanmistermustard they made me realize that people who are both blind and deaf can do all of those things as well as live a normal life, I've never heard of touch sign language before and I haven't seen that great article before.

Ron Nasty said
There would be nothing to stop someone who was deaf and blind being a member of this forum without you having any idea unless they chose to reveal that information.

Except for the fact that deaf people can't listen to The Beatles.

meanmistermustard said
Can't hear The Beatles, might as well give up on life.

Although I don't believe you should give up life because you can't hear The Beatles, a lack of Beatles music really does make your life lose worth, especially considering the many people who have chosen to dedicate their lives to The Beatles in various ways.

Does she at least like The Beatles, I'd hate to have to live with someone who dislikes The Beatles.

*cough cough* no. It drives me and my monkey dad nuts!

Though I'm trying to find songs that she likes. She likes Piggies , though I think that is the only Beatles song she likes.

But, @Dark Overlord, Beethoven was virtually deaf by his death, he could no longer "hear" own his music. He experienced it differently.

Probably the greatest orchestral percussionist of the last fifty years, the wonderful Dame Evelyn Glennie, born in 1965, profoundly deaf by 1977, and one of the greatest musicians of her generation.

She has heard The Beatles in ways that you, I, and possibly no-one on this forum has heard them.

She "hears" the way vibrations interact with her body, a whole different way of "listening", but not one I am able to say is any lesser rewarding than my ears, while accepting it may be entirely more rewarding but in a different way.

After all, we have all experienced the feeling of the vibration of a sound passing through us - not the sound of a riff, a drum roll, or a bass line - but the rumbling thunder, the rolling thunder, passing through our bodies from a good loud pair of speakers, from the floor on up...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?.....kK0wBiV7C8

You decide if her ability to hear and listen to music in a different way to you makes her someone who shouldn't be considered a musician because she experiences music differently.

Deaf people may not be able to listen to The Beatles in the way you and I, but that does not mean they cannot "hear" The Beatles, and have an appreciation and understanding of their music that we will never get near...

Deaf people can become drummers since they can feel the vibrations and work accordingly.

Great post, if you and Joe weren't against the idea, I'd try to thank it as many times as possible. I never realized that you didn't need to hear to listen to music.

New pet peeve:

Rock Band and Guitar Hero only charts songs for 1 guitarist (bar a few songs for GH I-III, as well as the guitar duels in GHIII, GHA, and GHWT). Is it really that much to ask to be able to have at least 2 separate guitar parts to play, I mean I can name 100 songs right now that have at least 2 guitar parts in them and if you're going to have just one guitarist in there, why not make the guitarist or bassist the singer, why does it have be a standalone singer. This means your only options are lead guitar, lead vocals (as well as backing vocals for The Beatles Rock Band, GDRB, and RB3), bass, drums, and piano (RB3 only), so no playing rhythm guitar for you, except for those rare parts in songs, such as the outro solo to For Whom The Bell Tolls, where they force you to play rhythm guitar and don't let you play lead. I especially hate this in band specific games like The Beatles Rock Band where there are at least 2 guitarists in the band yet you can only play one guitar part.

So everyone who doesn't like the Beatles is living a life less of worth than those who do? Do you read and consider what you write at times?

Today's peeve is people who convert the 'ing' ending of a word to sound like 'een'. Instead of running, filming etc it's 'runneen' or 'filmeen'. There's a certain "beauty guru" on You Tube who does this, and I've unsubbed her since. Not because of that, but.... because.
