I'd add to that that not everyone actually has a phone, so what if they want an email and don't have a phone?a-hard-days-night-paul-10

A pet peeve of mine is when people talk to me like I'm a child. Or treat me like one. I know I'm small, but I don't need to be told that all the time or cooed at or be picked up. Some lady was telling my dad and his wife recently that they have "the most precious, sweetest little girl". They thought she was talking about my five year old sister, but no. She was talking about a twenty year old.

This may seem very weird to hear from a man's mouth but I was reading Ron Nasty's post in the philosophy thread and it reminded me of a pet peeve of mine.

I hate how so many people/places/sites (even ones that are far left) say that when it comes to sexual consent yes is yes and no is no.

What really pisses me off about this statement is that yes doesn't always mean yes, yes means no if the person is:

1. underage (this one should be obvious)

2. mentally incapable of giving consent

3. under the influence of alcohol and or drugs

4. coerced

5. uninterested but says yes anyways, either by saying it unenthusiastically or using fine or whatever as opposed to yes

As for no, no is always no.

What these things should be saying is "yes is yes if she is in the right mindset and genuinely wants it and no is always no".

It's something usually discussed by women, particularly feminists and while most of them would 100% agree with my statement, they typically simplify the statement to yes is yes and no is no, which undermines statutory rape by completely ignoring it and I think that's a problem. By the way, this applies to both genders, as men can be raped as well as be victims of statutory rape.

I think it sounds right coming from a male. Men should think about matters like that just as much as women.

Major pet peeve:  Whenever drummers hit one of their crash cymbals, then a second or two (or three) later reflexively reach out to dampen the crash with their free hand.  Why do that?  The sizzling decrescendo of a crash cymbal is a great sound!  Only very rarely should it be dampened (but, alas, it's all too common...).

Throughout this long jam called "Savor" (and particularly during the long timbale solo toward the end) you can see drummer Michael Shrieve of Santana wonderfully letting his crash cymbals BREATHE all the &&&&ing time!

When you can't hear the bass part. Just about every pop/rock band has a bassist (The Doors being a notable exception) and just about every pop/rock song has a bass part in it but unless if you have a subwoofer, you won't be able to hear most of these bass parts pretty well and while some of them are just playing what the guitarist is playing or something very basic but sometimes these are real great bass parts that you don't want to miss. A perfect example of this is just about every song on Rubber Soul , but especially Nowhere Man where the bass helps the music smoothly flow like an ocean but if you're just having a casual listen to it, you won't hear that great bassline and will miss out on the full experience. Who decided that we should have bassists but not easily be able to hear them without going out of your way to hear them.

A great song, thanks for posting it! Another great example of a breathing crash cymbal (love that expression) is Ringo in the Anthology 2 version of I'm Down .

One can also hear it in many songs from The Beatles Live At The Star Club, like this one:

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Thanks Martha, that photo montage was fascinating and the song so thoroughly expressing that roots of early rock which the Beatles obviously loved.  I'd say however that Ringo's use of cymbals there is not really what I'm referring to. It sounds like he's basically using a crash as a ride cymbal -- so he is letting it breathe, for sure (most of the time, I notice that when the guitars stop at one point he must have dampened the cymbals because there's silence), but what I mean is the the moments in a song when the drummer hits the crash for momentary emphasis, rather than a non-stop stream of beats.

I don't know if I've ever done one of these things before but I'm going to mention something I used to do but now regret.

I really hate how I used to be obsessed with what guitar model was used on what. Sometimes there's confirmation of a certain Beatle using a certain guitar on a certain song but with most songs it's just guesswork like what guitar George used on Back In The USSR , at the time he had Rocky, Lucy, his SG, his Casino, and a Gibson ES-5 and he could've used any of those guitars on that song and I'm not like Rob Chapman where I can tell apart a Les Paul and an SG without even thinking, I can barely tell a Les Paul apart from a Strat. Another thing I hate is that I let a tribute band using the wrong guitar ruin their cover of the song, like that's so stupid, it's not like they're having Ringo sing She Loves You .

Clothes that fit you nicely, but seem tight and constricting because you're used to wearing baggy clothes.
It's so uncomfortable, I mean, I could live in large t-shirts and Jnco jeans. (Oh wait, I already do a-hard-days-night-john-7 )

This has been one of my biggest, oldest pet peeves ever. I'm a bass-phile anyway so it bothers me. When I listen to music, if I can't hear the bass, I just turn it off. Why bother?

OOOH! That's me as well. During the work week, it's business casual. On my time, it's loose fitting jeans or shorts along with a baggy t-shirt or sweatshirt - maybe a flannel shirt over that on cool days. I am also one who will literally wear out a t-shit or sweat shirt until you can practically see through it. So comfy!!

I still wear a sweatshirt that I was wearing the day before my 6 month old nephew was Christened. He started college this past autumn. ahdn_paul_02

I like clothes that fit me reasonably well, but I don't like curve-hugging clothes. So I guess I'm somewhere in the middle.

Pet peeve: wankers who feel the need to accelerate real hard as they go by so that their aftermarket tailpipes can deafen you. When you're out innocuously walking down the street, with no ear protection, because you DON'T EXPECT TO DEAL WITH 90+ DECIBELS WHEN YOU'RE WALKING DOWN THE STREET OF A SUBURBAN NEIGHBOURHOOD. Fer feck's sakes! paul-mccartney
