Do Yanks get pissed? From what I've gathered through this forum Yanks all turn up to gigs with mineral water and electrolyte replacement fluids ... after a light high protein and natural carb meal beforehand, of course.

Bloody holier-than-thou puritans ;)

Of course we do. I try not to have too much of the creature while I'm playing but afterwards it's all gravy.

PFOG, I know you're a Jack man hence the reference to it there. Next time you have too much of that sweet Tennessee Nectar I want that to be the first thought on your mind. Yank-pissed!

Haha, well I might make an exception. Only if I was pretty darn sure she was ackshully an exceptionally nice person, though.

(Really, you don't like that song?? All kidding aside, I never met a person who liked popular music, who doesn't like that song... first time for everything, I suppose.)

And you needed a helping hand
I came to feed you
but now that I need you
you won't give me a second glance

She is super-nice, if somewhat mother-hennish. And tigressy, avec claws when necessary :) I'm very sorry if you are disappointed; I distinctly remember DrumEatDrum making a similar exception re Eric Clapton :/

Lovely, you should know by now that I live my life in parallel to most other people. The "popular" music I like is outnumbered by about 1,000,000-1 by the "popular" music I don't like. I can, however, see why people like it and why it's a good song, but there are lots of good things I don't like and that's one of them!

That made me laugh out loud. Point taken. Haha!

I have some, how shall I put this... idiosyncrasies, myself. I'm a drummer who doesn't much care for drum solos, a Rush fan who doesn't like Dream Theater, country drummer who doesn't listen to country music, and a guy who listens to the nearby college's classical music station on the way to bar gigs.

I fully understand living in parallel!

In the unlikely event of Mr Madge divorcing me, and you being THAT desperate, will you marry me?

So my brother got his Phd!

Which means I'm the only male in my 'household' without 'Dr.' in front of their name.

Congrats!

My younger brother is the PhD in our clan. Got his doctorate from Berkeley, so the whole family took a nice vacation to San Francisco to watch him graduate. That worked out nicely; easily one of my favorite cities in the U.S.

Unfortunately Manchester doesn't quite have the same vibe. It gives me an excuse to listen to The Smiths, mind.

Well, techinically you could use the honorific too if you really wanted to because Dr. could always stand for 'Dr ummer'

I'm immensely proud of him. He's a year and a half older than me and has always been incredibly bright. He is, however, autistic and if it wasn't for sacrifices that my parents made when he was younger, he wouldn't have been able to live a 'normal' life. He's secured his first Graduate job at a decent firm doing work he's good at (they came to him), is moving in with his girlfriend and pursuing his interests. He's also a phenomenal Pianist. But he prefers playing Bridge. If you'd have asked my parents twenty years ago whether he'd be able to live the life he now does, then it probably wouldn't have been such a positive answer.

Meanwhile I'm still hopeless at the whole 'life' thing!

I know I'm gushing guys but I'm really proud of him.

Duncan's mention of education and our previous discussion of spelling has me thinking about grammar. I am curious if a particular usage I have been seeing is a regional/national thing, or simply benign misuse.

I keep seeing "different to..."

I was taught "similar to," "different from" or "different than."

Any of you edumacated types from around the globe care to enlighten me?

You might as well be a doctor - you have a mad scientist way about you and some of the tech advice I've seen you post on the forum has been pretty involved :) Plus Doctor Duncan is a charming alliteration :)

While it's good that your brother is doing so well, you need not worry about the "life" thing. I've tried it and, trust me, it's rubbish.

No one in my family has a degree. However, I have a post grad certificate (qualified to do it via wage slave experience).

That is an awesome story, Duncan! Sorry I can't help with the "life" thing. I'm nearly 50 and still rowing with one oar.

Duncan, I can imagine how proud you and your parents are of your brother. I know how it feels to have a child about whom you wonder if they will ever be able to function in "normal" life, and how it feels to be blown away by their brilliance when they do!

Different from is correct :) - for now at least.

Sadly for pedants like me, languages evolve and certain usages gradually become so widely-used and widely-accepted as to become correct. The most recent example of this that I know of is that the split infinitive is no longer incorrect, but it has been argued that not splitting the infinitive was actually incorrect in the first place, since it was a rule from (I think) the Latin which was superimposed on English.

Topic change, but I cannot stand this recent trend in female vocalists singing in "baby talk". When did this begin and how can we stop it? If you watch the tv program The Voice in the U.S. you'll know what I mean. This baby talk singer made it into the top 5. Terrible. And you hear this silly vocal style on tv commercials and via contestants on other vocal reality show competitions. Why do people think this ridiculous kind of singing is actually good? My finance is a voice teacher and we both cringe when we hear this kind of junk. It's everywhere.

This must stop. Help. One of the major offenders is pictured below. :)

That is great to hear!

My wife's part-part time job is working with an autistic child.
Due to early intervention and therapy, doctors think the child may eventually be functioning to the point where it won't be noticeable.

OK, that is what I thought. My son is a linguist and studies the evolution of language, too, but presently his focus seems to be on individual word spellings and pronunciations rather than grammar usage. He's usually too busy to ask. ;)

I am aware of the argument over split infinitives, and I'm glad they are backing off that rule, to be honest. I use split infinitives frequently. In many cases, splitting the infinitive actually sounds better to my internal ear, though I realize that has more to do with familiar usage than any inherent linguistic value.

This drumarray is different to that drumarray.

They differ from one another in the following ways...

If we're talking about changing word usage, there's one that makes me literally mad as a snake!

I know I'm gushing guys but I'm really proud of him.
