I have perfect pitch and anything even slightly out of tune makes me irritable and angry.

That's not exactly an advertisement for perfect pitch.

When the capital development of a country becomes a by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done. — John M. Keynes

I've found the slide guitar the biggest help in de-tuning my ear.  I was trying to learn indian scales, with the microtones.  I found some texts which explained the principles and I realised I could practice on a guitar if I had a slide, just slide up and down--hunt out the pitches.

--I'm intrigued now by perfect pitch; it reminds me of my thing about the three of the four beat--or whatever it is--the 'pap' beat, somehow it lacks ooomph.  The next track has been ooomphed.  They put in the drum beat I don't like--at 1:30, but only for a little while, quite a variety in there.  It's got that perfect pitch thing, they tune the synths to the exact co-ordinates, beyond the capacity of the human ear to discern the shades, and then overlay with what you like!

And then--heh...I thought it was humorous, that huge ant with the words 'The Reality of Destruction'--but who could notice when there's orgasms--or was it just the one, or their mate into a mic--trying to make a serious point about female sexuality and its constrictions in the new a--destroy those barriers, the giant X-Ray of an ant is here--reality--plus an orgasm or even two!  Or three!  

Now--cough cough!  

anything even slightly out of tune makes me irritable and angry.

A bloke once said to me, "Tom Waits?  Ugh!  I can't stand him.  I mean, I like the music--but that voice!"

~:7o (:

Now our sound worlds can start matching up--hey, how about a video with a melody that's sung or played such that your ears are singing ahhhhhhh!  I am a HUGE FAN of beautiful notes hit beautifully.  And I'm always happy to hear someone else's choices!
