Love this application it's a amazing method to try meal joints without leaving your home if you like it visit the restaurant, if not dont it's a amazing victory win,great for family nites if you dont wonna leave on that cold evening,or on the job site,everyone needs this
What can I say? I just got this cd and actually I am still playing it, haven't finished yet (1 song still to go), but as usual...great guitar work by the greatest guitarist in the globe (IMHO)!!! What separates Steve Morse from other "Guitar Heroes" (Satriani, Vai, Malmsteen, etc)? Well, I guess the best method I can place it is...Mr Morse is a profilic and gifted musician as well as a creature guitar player, but mostly...it's the musicianship, the song writing and the taste that sets him apart from others. I have only seen this in Steve Morse, Eric Johnson, Richie Kotzen (tasteful music!!) and Steve Lukather.Well, that's me!!! Hope you like all of the musical spectrum covered in this album...it's awesome!!!
Steve Morse has been a brilliant and innovative musician for so long that his formidable talents are taken for granted. On "Split Decision", Morse explores a dozens of tones, textures, and styles. Morse has continually redefined the power trio in the latest 10 years or so, exploring such musical forms as bluegrass, jazz, rock, and classical melody within this musical form. Only Rush has stretched the musical boundaries of the power trio as much as Morse."Split Decision" is somewhat of a departure for Morse, incorporating more ethereal textures than his previous work. His collaborators, drummer Van Romaine and bassist Dave LaRue are just about the best rhythm section working, and they ably execute Morse's multifaceted musical visions. This CD is a cross between his early solo work on "The Introduction" and later solo works such as "High Tension Wires" and "Stressfest." The first half of the CD includes the heavy-hitting, finger twisting lines that we have come to expect from Morse. The second half includes more atmospheric, but no less stunning, music. Morse continues to grow as a musician, a rare and admirable trait.
Huge man, he has Atom Bombs for breakfast! Split Second is directed by @#$% Powell and written by William Bowers, Irving Wallace and Chester Erskine. It stars Stephen McNally, Alexis Smith, Jan Sterling, Keith Andes, Arthur Hunnicutt, Richard Egan, Paul Kelly, Robert Paige and Frank DeKova. Melody is by Roy Webb and cinematography by Nicholas Musuraca. Escaped convict Sam Hurley (McNally) is on the run with his wounded pal Bart Moore (Kelly) and henchman accomplice Dummy (DeKova). Carjacking two lots of hostages, Hurley takes them to a ghost city on an Atom Bomb try sight figuring it's the excellent put to hole up. But with Moore in need of medical help, the try bomb set to go off in the morning and tempers frayed within the group, something is going to have to give... A taut and sweaty noir, Split Second taps into the 50s fear of the bomb and explodes the hero dynamics Petrified Forest style. The premise is simple, once the hero introductions are out the way, we wind our method to a bleak ghost city and stay in the company of a disparate group of people for the remainder of the film. As the clock ticks down, with the bomb set to be detonated on the city at 06.00, the different characters introduce their respective traits into the story. The tension mounts and the over-spills are often nervy, sleazy and poignant. The makers don't soap the situations, but they do dangle shards of sympathy. As is the case with Hurley, who is a cold blooded killer, we know and witness this, but his back story is that of a battle hero, he also has a deep affection for his injured older pal, somewhere along the line a amazing man lost his balance. Dottie Vale (Sterling) is a dancer, road wise and aware of how to play the situation, but sadness resides behind her waspish tongue. Kay Garven (Smith) is a lost cause, she will do anything and trample on anyone to save herself. One of the best sequences in the movie finds Garven throwing herself at Hurley, the rest goes on behind closed doors, but we know what happens and it adds spice to what follows in the final third. Not all of the characters work for dramatic impact, such as Hunnicutt's talkative miner who wanders in to the plot at the mid-point (it's awesome how simple everyone finds it to obtain into this supposedly secure military site!), but the dynamics work wonderfully well. Weaklings, heroes in waiting, the forlorn, the foolish or the borderline psychotic, they all create for a potent and spicy psychological stew. The suspense angle of the impending bomb detonation is water tight, as is the ebbing away of Bart Moore, directer Powell never resorts to strategies or clichés to hold the noose tight, and we are constantly wondering just who, if anyone? Will survive the ordeal. Once daylight disappears and we leave the scorching Mojave vistas behind, night time envelopes the ghost city and ace cinematographer Musuraca brings his atmospheric magic. Webb scores it with dramatic verve and the RKO effects squad (headed by Harold Wellman) do sterling work to pull it all together without and tacky baggage. Powell gets amazing performances out of McNally, Kelly, Sterling, Egan and Smith, while his ability to not allow the logic holes dominate the narrative belies the fact that this was his first directing assignment. From the ominous opening shot of two men fleeing over sun-baked mud flats, to the thrilling and darkly tinged denouement, Split Second is a coiled spring waiting to explode. 8/10
I downloaded this application a few years ago. I don't like the impact that latest updates have had on the visuals. At first it seemed that there was no variety in rewards- but we seem to just have had poor luck with the first 2 times we used it after the updates. It's beautiful good- but we liked it better before.
I created a dummy race to test it out on. Exported to excell fine, emailed fine. Could not obtain that dummy race to delete. Also wanted to preload a true race to run in the future but would not save that. I realize im trying to use it for crosscountry but still these primary stuff should be available in the settings somewhere. I dont have time to load every runner and wait at the starting line. Sorry. Other than these two things amazing app.
This is a amazing app. Love the ability to save people's names, add to lists, etc. One thing that would be amazing would be various fonts and also the ability to increase font size (especially for tablets) for people like me with eyes that are not what they once were.
Call this the mellowing of Morse. Though there is just one single truly acoustic song on the CD, there is a balance struck between ripping rock 'n roll and more introspective but uplifting melodies. In the liner notes, Morse claims he couldn't create up his mind whether to go with the rock band concept or discover his more mellow side instead, hence the title "Split Decision."The resulting song cycle plenty of variety, a pleasant and engaging blend that drives the listener through a lot of moods. The opener, "Heightened Awareness" is a massive duty rocker, followed by the uptempo baroque ditty "Busybodies" in which Morse and bassist Dave LaRue play in unison throughout. "Marching Orders" encompasses the nature of the CD in a single song, starting out slightly jazzy and subdued, ultimately morphing into a raging assault. "Mechanical Frenzy" combines speed metal riffs with southern rock leads as well as Morse ever did with the Dregs, then out of left field, LaRue takes over with a bass immediate favorite track on the album, "Great Mountain Spirits" is one of the stately mid-tempo rockers, with multi-layered guitars over booming bass and drums. The only instruments credited in the liner notes are guitars, bass and drums, but if that's not a flute and keyboards I'm hearing in this song, then it is some beautiful stellar guitar synths! Nice. Soon, the CD then slows down to a jazzy, sometimes meditative tempo for several tracks, including the brilliant and enthralling "Moment's Comfort," another track where virtuoso Morse makes room for a Dave LaRue bass solo."Split Decision" is one of the most fully satisfying CDs of 2002.
I used this application to compare my proof on why God's don't exist and within a day the ancient alien engineers came and told me I was the only worthwhile human on earth ready to advance with the next evolution by the use of genetic to robotic replacement. THANK YOU SPLIT PICTURE!
I have listened to Steve Morse since the early Dreg days and love almost everything he does. Split Decision is one of the best and I have about worn it out. Steve's playing is always superb. For me, the difference in the productions is the compositions and he hits bull's eyes on this one. The diversity of styles is perfect. Back Porch is delightful and beautiful atypical of his composing style. Midnight Daydream and Clear Memories are just beautiful. There is nothing but winners on this release. Most intriguing work since High Tension Wires.
For someone of Morse's stature in the industry, you'd think he'd be content to just rest on his laurels and crank out sound-alike albums until he retires. Steve shows us again with this record that it ain't gonna happen!This record is much various than anything I have heard out of him. Overall the record is much simpler than the rest of his work, emphasizing his melodic blues chops when not displaying his softer side with lush acoustic layers and layering of clean guitars - few do this better, by the way. About half the album is mid-tempo or slower ballads, immediately bringing to mind his 1989 solo effort, "High Tension Wires". But this is Steve Morse, so you can expect that most of the songs rock out beautiful well at one point or another...it's just that it's a small more subtle. A amazing thing? I think probably ere's a ton a dozens on this album, from the hooky opening track which sort of had me waiting for the vocals to come in (HA HA just kidding Steve!), to the one tune where he decides to knock your socks completely off from begin to finish, "Mechanical Frenzy". Most of the songs on the first half of the record begin with a softer intro part and then morph into something that really moves. The aptly named "Gentle flower, Hidden Beast", for instance, starts out with a Santana feel to it and then rocks into a classic Morse 's interesting to note that the album he did before this was Major Impacts - which for the uninitiated, was an album of original melody written in the vein of several various infulential artists. That record definitely left a tag on this one, with some of the influences on that record shining through loud and clear - like the Leslie West/Mountain parts in the title ere was some things that I had never really heard him do before, like a Shrapnel Records-sounding electric duet in "Busybodies". He uses a LOT of various tones on the record, too; much more than I've ever of the amazing things about Morse as a musician (and a person in general) is that he loves to learn fresh things and adapt them to what he is doing. This record shows that he really wants to hold changing and improving...so even if the record wasn't really good, which it is, it would be a lot of fun to listen to someone of his compositional and playing ability discover a lot of fresh and various things.I guess the record missed the fifth star -heresy!- due to the easy fact that I'd prefer a small less of the softer, more lush items and acoustic blues. That boils down to my preferences; I guess I just don't "get it" so much. Having said that, I do think that nobody-and I mean nobody!-does emotive instrumental ballads better ("Four Mins to Live" from Stressfest still brings tears to my eyes)...but perhaps it's too much of one thing. Your mileage may vary, though, you know?All in all, a amazing album with lots of cool items to explore. Bottom line: Obtain this one - especially if you have High Tension Wires and/or Major Impacts.
If you are a restaurant - this app/company will ruin your reputation. First attempt to use it was foiled because they only had the lunch menu for our desired restaurant. When we called they said that they had been trying to obtain in touch to fix it but Lickety-split was not answering. The second time we ordered from a various put and ended up waiting a small more than 3 hours. The drivers called and told us that the restaurant had not received orders for a while and then suddenly got a bunch of them. Our driver waited 2 hours and said that there were about 5 other drivers waiting under the same circumstances. Unacceptable. Stay far away.
