Soup replied to Brad Feaker's discussion What gear do you use? in the group Atheist Musicians
"Most of the time, I use a Washburn D10-S acoustic or a cheap-ish Goldtone banjo. I keep it simple. When I play electric, though, I'm usually playing an ESP Xtone PC-2V (old-school setup with the JB and Jazz pickup set) through a Sovtek Mig-50…"

Soup replied to Louis Davout's discussion Movies and TV shows ruined by belief.
"I gotta disagree. It just seems like such an unsatisfying way to push the plot along, doesn't it? I mean, the best sci-fi only requires suspension of disbelief to a point. Like accepting imaginary technologies and those sorts of things.…"

Soup replied to Brandon's discussion What kind of music do you like to play? in the group Atheist Musicians
"I mostly play punk. Guitar and vocals. Pre-1990 in style. It's just sort of something I fell into as a teenager and it's something I'm still into now. I also play lots of folk. Improving my fingerpicking and all that. I think a lot…"

All tastes are highly subjective. I've had a lot of people swear something was "fantastic," and then I try it and I think it sucks.

Don't worry about taking a long time to respond. I do the same thing. There is a lot competing for our attention these days.

Soup, again, sorry for such a slow response time. Sapporo is nice, but I still think Tsing Tao is better. But what a person likes is highly subjective, so my advice is for people to always eat or drink what they like. :)

Asahii Black isn't everywhere here, just in certain kinds of stores. It's about $14 a 6-pk.

I can't remember if I've tried Samual Smiths or not, same for Old Speckled Hen and Boddingtons.

What's TMJ? How could the jaw become dislocated like that without any force?

Of course, the xtian English guy is just a hypocrite and fascist, like they all are.

Your description of Utah sounds a lot like Texas.

Aside from an emergency room visit and an unfortunate encounter with a very religious Englishman who was offended by my Circle Jerks t-shirt...

You can't just leave it at that. What the heck happened?

Racer 5 IPA is one of my new favorites.

Have you tried the Chinese beer Tsing Tao? It is awesome. I also like Young's Oatmeal Stout, and Asahii Black.

My week was fine, kind of busy, kind of boring, and a little stressful. There is a possiblity I could get laid off, so that has me a little worried. Won't know until later this week though.

Sorry I didn’t respond earlier.

All religious elements drag us down, sure. But you haven't seen anything until you've seen an area under a Mormon stranglehold.

No doubt.

The outdoors element of Utah is awesome (same goes for Idaho - even in Boise, we have a pretty excellent trail system in the hills around town).

I bet it is. Very deserty, isn’t it? The desert has its charm.

Seattle ain't bad. The people aren't the friendliest…

Why is that?

How was your trip to Encinitas?

The Mormon element has been dragging us down for years.

All religions drag us down, slow us down, and turn back the clock.

...than ever set foot in Arkansas again...

Never been, but I can't say I've ever wanted to go either. People tell me I'd like Seattle, but I've never been there either. If I could move somewhere it might be there, Boston, Portland, or perhaps Berkley.

Thanks for the kind words, man!

If someone is going to try and debate that with me, chances are they're just as convinced that there is a god as I am that there isn't one.

Ditto, understood. There's no point discussing it, it seems. If they are ready for atheism, they'll seek it out themselves.

Idaho sounds, well, kind of pathetic. Alas, there is so much of that in the US, though.

Understood, while I don't really talk much about atheism here, it is nice to socialize with atheists. I think, for the most part, they tend to be more analytical. Though I'll have to admit that there is a HUGE variety of people, some nicer, some more liberal, some more intelligent, some more thoughtful than others. But, of course, other than non-belief in fairy tales, there is not much more that atheists have in common, generally speaking.

As for Dallas (re your Boise comment), it has gotten quite liberal here. Dallas County has been Democrat for some time, and in the last Mayoral election we had an openly gay candidate. He lost only by a little bit. There have been several gay members on the city council in the past, and many on there now are openly gay friendly. In fact, I've heard that most plan on appearing in the upcoming gay pride parade, though I never attend stuff like that. I'm not really into the gay scene. We also have a lesbian Sheriff, though the Republicans are always trying to unseat her.

We don't have nearly enough of them here in Idaho ;)

I bet you don't. They're not exactly coming out of the woodwork here in Texxus either.
