Both Arthur Schopenhauer and Sigmund Freud have used this situation to describe what they feel is the state of individual in relation to others in society.

Hedgehog's dilemma

The hedgehog's dilemma suggests that despite goodwill, human intimacy cannot occur without substantial mutual harm, and what results is cautious behavior and weak relationships. With the hedgehog's dilemma, one is recommended to use moderation in affairs with others both because of self-interest, as well as out of consideration for others. The hedgehog's dilemma is used to explain introversion and isolationism.

Schopenhauer[edit] The concept originates in the following parable from the German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer's Parerga und Paralipomena, Volume II, Chapter XXXI, Section 396:[1] A number of porcupines huddled together for warmth on a cold day in winter; but, as they began to prick one another with their quills, they were obliged to disperse.

Motorcycle Hobo?

Iíve lived in a Toyota Van. Iím cooking up another Walden-On-Wheels experiment-- one I may try if I ever return to the US: Motorcycle living. The idea is to simplify the vehicle element of the car/van lifestyle even further... this seems especially prudent considering the rising cost of both gasoline and car repairs. Other than food, gas and repairs were my biggest expense during the year of van living. Metta: The Philosophy and Practice of Universal Love.

Camping/Survivalist. Clairvius Narcisse. Clairvius Narcisse (born c. 1922) is a Haitian man said to have been turned into a living zombie by a combination of drugs.

Clairvius Narcisse

After investigating reports of "zombies" (including Narcisse and a handful of others), researchers believed that Narcisse received a dose of chemical mixture containing tetrodotoxin (pufferfish venom) and bufotoxin (toad venom) to induce a coma which mimicked the appearance of death. He was then allowed to return to his home where he collapsed, "died", and was buried. The Canadian ethnobotanist Wade Davis, who did the research on tetrodotoxin [1] explains how this would have been done. The bokor (sorcerer) would have given Narcisse a powder containing the tetrodotoxin through abraded skin. Stevie Wonder - You Are The Sunshine Of My Life. Shout At The Devil.

Technique : Recording / Mixing The drum kit can be one of the most time-consuming and frustrating of instruments to record, so it's worth taking a structured approach.

Recording Drums

Hugh Robjohns The phenomenal advances in integrated drum machines and sample-based drum sources controlled by sequencers mean that few of us bother recording real drum kits any more. However, there are still a large number of drummers out there (they haven't all been caught yet!) And some people still like the sound of real drums. Setting Up The Drums The typical drum kit consists of a kick drum, snare, a couple of tom-toms mounted on stalks from the kick drum, a floor tom, a hi-hat, and a couple of cymbals — maybe a crash and a ride. Before the drummer starts to assemble the kit, ask if there are any elements that won't be used in the songs that you will be recording.

Before even unfolding the first mic stand, it is absolutely essential that the drum kit sounds good in the studio. Enter The Microphones. Motley Crue - Live Wire.
