wow, where to even start?

oddly enough, I’ve been enjoying this song on my computer, I see a connection:
Rush - The Garden (Lyrics) - YouTube


Like the song from Robert Burns?

Last year one of the WC’s was “Soviet Propaganda” and I asked what that covered?

You want Robert Burns? You want the literal translation? You want an old guy named Lang lecturing on sine waves? Up to you. :rofl:

This gives me an excuse to finally figure out what the heck this means.

Teaching Trig

Open entry, Cycles render, 32 samples & compositor denoising in 2.91.0. Composition is Rule of Thirds, 8x5 aspect ratio. Environment map is interior.exr (one of Blender’s included studiolights). Thing I did for this that I’ve never done in Blender before: oddly enough, I don’t think I’ve ever used the hair particle emitter for actual hair! (Might try to get it better latter if I have time.)

Open because the sine wave graphic is from Wikipedia, and I prepped it & made the nametag texture in GIMP.

I get it… It’s a play on words. I’m making mine a little bit more about the meaning of Auld Lang Syne but yours is funny.

SO, what does it mean? I’m sure we can share in our research.

It means old times fondly remembered.

Example: Remember when we used to go to the corner store every saturday when we were younger an buy a candy for a cent.

That made me sound old.

Man, you must be older than me! I remember it being a nickel.

I’m not old, I didn’t mean a cent. And I just googled what it meant.

For whatever reason, this got kind of weird.

Wikipedia’s article on Auld Lang Syne

i need more…or less ?..not sure i dont get it at all…even googel cant help me out this time…

It’s a song that comes out once a year to make an appearance at New Year’s eve. It is very sentimental and traditional. It has a lot of that old-fashioned vibe because it uses those words “Auld Lang Syne” that sound like old English and I do not know how many people know what it really means. But the song has the feeling of togetherness because everyone sings it to bring in the New Year.

For me it brings up remembrances of black and white films, I think because they sing it in “It’s a Wonderful Life” ( And people in a crowd or a party all singing together, some drunk, late at night, and enjoying themselves. I always thought it was “Old Lane’s Eine”.

i really thank you boder, it is nice to see my first im impression was not the badest


I like the donuts coming out of the chimney. Reminds me of old cartoons when they would blow smoke rings. I don’t really know what it means, but I know it is timely.
