Get out of my thread yomamma

I've started to notice that people are absolutely psychotic about music. It's as if its oxygen to them. If someone doesnt listen to music for a few hours, they will become murderous. I would say a good 90% of my friends say music is the most important thing in their lives. Not family, not friends, not their girlfriends/boyfriends.... their music Theres something seriously wrong with this country and its teens/young adults/children. We want to wake up to music, we want mp3 players in our showers, we want to have portable mp3 players, mp3 players on our cell phones, mp3 players in our cars. It's as if being away from their stupid music will drastically reduce their happiness. Pathetic. I don't see why we haven't whiped ourselves out yet.

I was out with the some folks last weekend, and we made the same observation. There are people who can't seem to put down the mp3 players. As a group, we concurred that we don't really like having music on non-stop like that, and especially when awareness of surroundings is more important (I like to hear what's going on around me when I'm out walking downtown, or even the long walk to the parking lot from the building I work in...you want to know if there's a car coming up behind you as you're walking through the parking lot, or if someone else is walking behind you).

I'm sitting here listening to WFMT streaming (somebody's string symphony), and wondering when this thread is going to come to any point.

I guess I would be one of the people that Penquino is ranting about. Although I cherish periods of silence, listening to the song-birds all around the house, etc, I want to listen to music most of the day. I have several hundred vinyl albums, and hundreds upon hundreds of CDs. Most of them fit in my 400-CD Sony carousel player, and I leave it on shuffle for hours at a time. I just listened to a great T-Bone Walker song, and now the Lovin' Spoonful are on. Next might be Vince Gill, Robben Ford, the Yardbirds, Emmylou Harris, Guy Clark, Elvis Costello, Buddy Guy, AC-DC, Mary Black, Hendrix, John Hiatt, Tony Rice, Aerosmith...who knows? There's some of everything in there except opera and hip-hop, both of which are like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

I have been avidly listening to music for over 50 years, and still have albums by the Ink Spots and the Mills Brothers that my mom had when I was a tyke. I started playing professionally in the '60's and earned my pocket money in college playing frat parties, and buying and selling and repairing guitars and amps. Life without music would be unthinkable. If the power goes out, I'll grab one of my acoustic guitars and make my own music.

Same here. People are being less aware of their surroundings. People don't value being attentive. They are so concerned with being cool, looking busy and showing others how much more they have in their life.

I have an iPod with close to 1000 songs on it, a PocketPC with lots of memory cards that have movies and TV shows, and a bunch of other toys. I rarely use them that often at all. I take the bus the school which is like 40-60 minute ride (depends on the day) and I only take the iPod to school once a week. I take my PocketPC when I take the bus out of town because that's like 90 minutes and so I watch TV. All the other days I'm reading a book on the bus, sitting in the back talk, or just hanging enjoy myself.

With all the opportunities I have to use an MP3 player, I still don't use it because that takes away so much more from you while you don't even know it.

So because I own an iPod, I am overly psychotic when it comes to music?

Write the companion matrix Cp for p(t) = 6-5t+t^2, and then find the characteristic polynomial of Cp.
