lol, theres a pretty HUGE difference between “gansta rap” and hip-hop, i dont think i’ve ever heard of anyone refer to immortal technique as “gangsta rap”


#103

It takes more than words to make a song. It brought to mind the “beat” poetry that thrived among the beatniks when I was growing up (Maynard G. Krebbs of Dobie Gillis’s fame was a parody of the beatniks). There, they would have a rhythm (like bongos), or maybe a few instruments, and through all that noise a person would be reading poetry. But back in that day, no one called beat poetry music.

LOL off topic but I reference him all the time on jobsites. Mostly just by loudly squawking the word “WORK?!” after someone else says it.

Didn’t want to turn this into a music thread - although I have to say I am utterly baffled that there are actually people out there who can’t be affected by Immortal Technique’s harrowing story… -
but back on topic:

Another variant, this time in 3D:

The physical realisation does not seem very practical. It does seem like a nice programming project though…

I think you’d be interested in http://www.segerman.org/diamond/. On this page, Henry Segerman discusses the idea of playing 3D Go on a suspended diamond made of wire mesh.

Here are a couple of photos from the site:

“The smallest live group. It uses a corner of the octahedron and seven stones.”

This photo shows a ko in progress.

The stone markers I would guess are origami.

Go & table tennis!! I like this, exactly my hobbies, just missing some electronics , e.g. raspberryPi !!


#111

Just played almost two hours today! Table Tennis I mean :smile:
Unranked, no games, just back and forth, back and forth…

And here are (amongst others) our balls:

The goban in the foreground is an interesting setup


#113

It looks like you can probably fold the metal legs underneath. First time I’ve ever seen a foldaway goban like that. I wonder how easy it would be to make one’s own: buy some folding metal legs and screw them onto a wooden table board, and hey presto you have a “floor board” at low cost and minimal storage space.


#114

The downside to that is you would not have a table board any longer.


#115

What if the stand is foldable and separate from the board?


#116

The downside is that it is ugly as hell :smiley: :stuck_out_tongue:

Czech contribution :grinning:

I’m guessing they actually just put the goban on top of a breakfast table for dining in bed.

Oh, the Czech and their pilsner! Love it!
Check the table 3 of this link and you see how proud they are of their original Pilsner :beers:

Yeah my local go club actually has some boards in nearby hole in the wall pub when we want to thrown down a couple liters while playing rengo. :sunglasses: :beer:

Pretty much every tournament over here has unofficial pub outing after games.
