Watched a TV show last night that mentioned crop circles and how one mathematician figured out that one of them appeared to represent Pi.

While they were showing the various configurations of others that had been found, one of them "rang a bell" for me.

If you take a look at this youtube video and note the one at the 30 second mark, then take a look at Noel96's "avatar", you may find it's somewhat similar.

Perhaps "they" are already familiar with Nashville notation.
Perhaps Noel knows something we don't <grin>.
Care to comment Noel??!?

Interesting... Personally I am interested in this mystery about crop-circles and other unsolved mysteries in general...
Just wonder if there is more people like me in this forum?

I like to watch the PBS-type shows regarding such things.
It sometimes gets to be a little bit much when they start on the "ancient astronaut theorists suggest ..." routines.

What is PBS shows? The biggest problem today, as I see it, is all the deliberated dis-info.. Hard to discern facts from fiction now a days.. Especially when we got to know that Sitchin was a Freemason... And so much of this ancient stuff is based on his books.. I just pick what makes sense to me and what can help me in my own life. Put up a simple pyramid is an easy thing to do, and we can see the result it has first hand...

PBS is the Public Broadcasting Service. It's a non-profit organization that airs shows of public interest. Then there's the National Geographic Channel and I also have 2 "History Channels", which are the ones that normally carry the "Alien Adventure" shows.

That's right PBS is not the Philippine Broadcast System. laugh

This kind of stuff is interesting to me. But I'm more of a Nasca Lines sort of guy.

There's also that show that should have been named "NOT Finding Bigfoot".

I've been trying to convince a few people that big foot has multi-cross bred. The new Sasquatch is a Yeti Zombie that got bit by a Warewolf on the same night he was bitten by a Vampire. DracWolZomSquatch. Problem is there's no one way to kill this guy if you could ever find him in the first place. grin
Could he be in your neighborhood right now?

Yup, the Nasca Lines fascinate me.
And I do remember watching the Bigfoot program and thinking the same thing.
Like your multi-cross bred idea, is that your avatar? <grin>

Tobias, have you noticed that since everyone now has a cell phone that takes pictures no one has taken a picture of Bigfoot!

Lloyd,

Wow! That's spooky. Some of those really do look like the basis of my chord sequence road map! I'll have to think of it as my 'chord sequence crop circle map' now!

A very interesting find!

All the best,
Noel

Ah, ok.. Not watching TV anymore, but did a lot before, especially the channels u mentioned here. Now, I am more topic oriented and watching/downloading, when my connection allow for it, videos, PDF documents about stuff I want to learn more about, especially stuff that can be of any practical help for me in my own daily life/development....

Yeah, but DracWolZombSquatch doesn't have flying reindeer and he doesn't wear red, he doesn't eat cookies and can't fit down the chimney. I mean anybody who could do all that and fly around the world in one night really has nothing to hide. So, maybe people should give him/her the benefit of the doubt. Beside, maybe you have seen him/her. Have you ever seen a bat? A wolf? A person with a face so ugly they refuse to shave in fear of scaring somebody. Or, maybe he/she is completely ashamed of how ugly he/she is and that's why he/she has become good at avoiding cameras. And, maybe he/she is wifi and bluetooth sensitive so he/she knows when cameras and cell phone are in the vicinity. You gotta respect ones right to privacy you know. Or, maybe he/she is an alien with an invisible flying saucer. What about Chubacka? He's got to have a mommy from some planet somewhere in the galaxy. You just never know so,... anyway,... I don't want to judge. Especially when I don't have all the information.

Yes. Quite often.
If you haven't, stop by the area. They aren't uncommon at all. I see them most every night once things thaw.
If you are talking baseball bats, Detroit area seems to have plenty of these too this year (when they're healthy).
<grin>

A wolf?

again affirmative. Have not seen wolves around here (though they are back in the lower peninsula), it's the coyotes that are starting to make me nervous ..
my wolf encounters were in Boundary Waters
/Boundary Waters is awesome, but be prepared if you decide to do it, you're literally on your own for a few days, and then they expect to pick you up at another location in a 4,000,000 acre forest. Do not get lost.

HI ALL
Just my take on all of this corn circle stuff.

Something I done a while back inspired by a field Corn Marigolds on one of my walkabouts.
Sort of circle theme based on a Bolero type rhythm. Using a simple nursery rhyme type phrase .


Circles In The Corn.
Now For Something Completely Different
If you ever played in a cornfield as a child you may remember a slightly uneasy feeling although it was fun, to me there was something a little bit scary, maybe it was just that the corn was so high and we were so small and shouldn’t have been there anyway.
So based on some of my darker childhood memories and many reports in the press over the years, of mysterious corn circles that appear over night. I have tried to put my thoughts into a sort of musical daydream.
The late afternoon sun glints on the cornfield children dance in circles in the corn until it time to go home for super.
Birds sing their last evening song and calm settles over the land.
As dusk turns to darkness a new sound comes from the corn, and something or someone else circles the corn, and dance through the night as if to imitate the children.
Early morning light brings back the birdsong and the cornfield begins to slowly wind its way back to normal.
The children return to dance and sing. And everything seems the same …. But maybe not quite…
(We are not alone)
Mike

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
