The TRSQs Daily Commentary- NBA Dress Code

Over the last several days I've heard everything from its a good idea to its a bad idea and its racist, of course all have their opinions. On the outside I can only use analogies to things that relate to me, hence my comments, if my job asks me to demonstrate a certain dress code or attire while performing company business, then I have no problem with that, but if my job thinks that what I wear to get to the job is any of their concern that's another thing. If NBA players are at a jersey signing function, then yes, dress code should be enforced, but while the NBA player is on his way to the signing he should be able to wear what he wants. How about I dictate what you wear to and from work, just something to think about. Also don't the NBA players already have a very strict dress code? They MUST wear a proper uniform while performing their jobs, which includes among other things, wearing their jerseys tucked in their shorts. Their job is not what they wear walking to the arena but how they perform on the arena court, and that's where the dress code should be observed.
These are opinions of Theron of the TRSQ and just that, opinions, these views are not to offend or disrespect but only to open the inner mind to new perspectives.

Nine Inch Nails- The Hand That Feeds

Nine Inch Nails has taken the game of mixing/remixing/editing to a whole new level with this imaginative concept of letting the world have their post production tracks from their hit The Hand That Feeds. The whole idea is to let the world remix this eclectic cut any way one feels fit, the contest recieved hundreds of remixes that cover all genres and styles of music. Great idea NIN thanks for the opportunity to mix with the big boys.

Plugin Watch-Discord

Discord v1.5 takes the best-selling Discord plug-in to the next plateau, with customer-requested additions that expand on the original Discord feature set of vintage-style pitch-shifting and delay effects.

The Discord pitch-shifting model is a perfect copy of the first mass-produced digital pitch shifter, perfect for everything from subtle vocal doubling to Low/Lodger snare sounds to extreme pitch-bomb feedback effects. With version 1.5, Discord gains several user-requested additions, making it both more capable and more extreme.

The Demon-Haunted World

Carl Sagan out did himself before passing several years ago with this great commentary on pseudoscience versus science, he insists the reader observe human nature and its collective thinking, in dumbing the world by deliberately alienating the masses from "real science". Educators insist on creating a ignorant population that since childhood has been fooled that science/math is to difficult to learn hence a population that embraces pseudoscience for comfort. A comfort, like any child, to feel secure and safe in our fragile but sophisticated universe. Science should be embraced by all for it is the only true guide to truly getting a handle on the awe inspiring cosmos we live in. Sagan writes,
"If we can't think for ourselves, if we're unwilling to question authority, then we're just putty in the hands of those in power. But if the citizens are educated and form their own opinions, then those in power work for us. In every country, we should be teaching our children the scientific method and the reasons for a Bill of Rights. With it comes a certain decency, humility and community spirit. In the demon-haunted world that we inhabit by virtue of being human, this may be all that stands between us and the enveloping darkness." -Carl Sagan

The TRSQs Daily Commentary- The Black Womans Body-Part 2- Buffie

After recieveing feedback from my commentary on the Black Womans Body , there were mixed reactions, it should be noted that there are men that simply appreciate the black womans body and the goal of exploiting them is not the object of this blog. I thought it my duty to introduce those in the internet world that didnt know who the model was on the cover of Black Mens magazine, she goes by the name Buffie, simply easy on the eyes.
