It's too bad they're so expensive. I write music and have the Arturia bundle at least ("softsynth" simulations of those old hardware synths) so until I have the money, I at least have something.

TBH, I think that's probably the way to go...Contoller + Modules....

It really is. There's even synths in that bundle that would cost $100K normally. lol

I've got three synths right now (2 analog Korgs and a Yamaha digital) so I can get the job done, but the Arturia set up is probably my next move.

 

The Motif and Jupiter, etc will happen when the lotto numbers come through. (I'll update my guitar setup then, as well)

Nice! The Arturia's worth is as they are actually modeled after the synths themselves. Another option is with UVI where they have sampled versions of a lot of those instruments. They're not going to be as in depth as Arturia, but the number of synths they have is in the 100's lol

I'd rather pay twice the cost for goods.

 

I already buy local.

 

I do NOT shop at Costco nor WalMart.

 

Did you know the apple industry in BC is in serious trouble?  Why?  Because the US supplements the Washington State Apple farmers so they can sell their fruit to us cheaper - guess which stores buy produce from Washington?  

 

Yeah...you see where this is going.  

 

Stop worrying about saving 25 cents on an apple and support BC/Canada products. 

Not to mention BC's royal gala apples blow away any of the crap coming out of Washington.

Hopefully this is more than just words.  I want to see action.  

If anything, Canada should just welcome anyone with a HK passport to immigrate here.  

You want to really hurt China, think how much it would hurt of suddenly half a million resident from HK with all their assets just up and re-settled here.  With more capital mean more investment in local industries.  More highly educated workforce means better productivities and a higher skilled workforce to compete globally.  

 

I hate to sound racist.... but I definitely prefer HKer than mainlanders.  Even most of my family from China originally feels the same.  

I feel like this distinction between HK and mainlanders has been accelerating over the past decade or so, especially amongst the Asian community in Canada as a whole.

Trudeau himself has not said China's action against the Uighurs was genocide.   And today the Liberal Cabinet abstained from the vote.

 

"However, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has so far stopped short of calling the treatment of the Uighurs a genocide, calling the term a "loaded word" that should be used carefully".

"abstained" as in wants to have it both ways.  Won't vote against is but won't vote for it. Great leadership.  

 

Politics aside, what does Canada now stand for if we don't' speak out against such atrocities? Are cheap products worth turning our back on the systematic abuses of other peoples?  I find it hard to recognize this country sometimes.  It seems we will sacrifice anything here or abroad for a little comfort promised by our elected officials.  Shameful.

To use an example, HKers are more like South Koreans while mainlanders are more like North Koreans.  I think.  Except for the really rich mainlanders, who want to slather their bodies with a mixture of the most expensive most trendy junk without pausing to look and discern whether or not what they're wearing makes fashion sense of any kind - just to try to demonstrate just how &^@#ing rich they are.  :sadno:

I don't mind processed apples, but my doctor says to minimize intake of processed food.

 

However, I definitely cannot bring myself to eat raw unprocessed apples (sliced, peeled, or not).

I got the stomach flu and had some raw green peppers for dinner that night.

Became very close with my toilet that night.

It took me probably 25-30 years before I started eating raw green peppers in my Greek salad.

Personally, I'm more partial to our cherries and peaches myself.  I had a bad run-in with apples as a kid...  :sick:

We had two apple trees in our backyard. I loved climbing them. And when my mom made apple pie. Nom..nom. 

But I agree with our cherries. Also nom nom.
