  1. Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm viewing this with my PS3 I rarely use my computer for simple tasks now.
  2. I just had the greatest blonde moment of my life about 2 minutes ago. While reading Wiki articles on things like musical temperament and melodic scales (I've become a music theory geek, sorta wishing I took AP Music Theory instead of guitar...), I had a playlist of my absolute favorite songs evar playing (still like 200 songs, some I haven't heard in years). Anywho, I begin hearing this really awesome sounding song that I recognize, but can't recall its title. It seems to be Radiohead song, judging by the vocalist (no doubt it's Thom Yorke). So I give up my guessing and look at the title of this yet anonymous track of awesome. As it turns out, it was a remix I made of the song, which sounds nothing like the original (only the vocals remain somewhat in-tact from the actual track) So yeah, that was a cool moment for me. Normally, I try not to listen to what I make more than a few times (that way, my content stays original). Seems like I don't give myself enough credit for things:) BTW, my hair isn't blonde XD
  3. If you waaant to destroyyy my sweateeeerr, pull this threaaad as I waaalk awaaaayyyyy! Undone (The Sweater Song) ~Weezer
  4. @tablet discussion: I love my Wacom. Got it at a garage sale about two years ago (it was 3 years old at that point), and works beautifuly! The pressure sensetivity (around 250 degrees of it) and pen angle sensors work flawlessly, and I got it for like $20, too @music discussion: My favorite type of songs are the ones that are simple to the ear, but complex at its core. Google the track Untitled 4 by Sigur Ros, or better yet, Nude by Radiohead [don't worry, nothing obscene XD]. They don't push your eardrums to the limit and they're easy to comprehend, but the number of techniques in both its music theory and instrumentation make for a very smooth flow. Songs like those two are also unique in their structure-- most songs nowadays go something like verse-chorus-verse-chorus while bands like Sigur Ros and Radiohead may go something like verse-verse-chorus or verse1-chorus1-verse1-chorus1-verse2-verse3-verse2-chorus2 (that would be Paranoid Android by Radiohead, more or less).
  5. Maybe he means the other way around (that he doesn't want signatures without borders)?
  6. I must now declare that I despise Green Day. It's not just their political/religious beliefs that I don't support, though. From an artistic point of view, they're an empty void composed of a repeating four chord progression. Why do I mention this now? I'm learning the chords for Yesterday by the Beatles. I'm going to die, twice; once out of awe, and again out of frustration. The series of chords are so intricate and complex... I'm using chords I never thought I'd have to use! It goes something like F, Em7, A7, Dm, Dm7, Bm, C, C7, F, C, Dm7, G7, Bb, F.... for the first three lines! For Green Day's Good Riddance/Time of Your Life? G, C, D, repeat two times, Em, D C,G, repeat. That's 90% of the song.
  7. Happiness: Um... the following link is a question from Yahoo! Answers, and may put some... images in your head. However, there's no particular use of profanity, but it'll make you go "wow, there are some really screwed up people, aren't there?" That was my fair warning to you. Now laugh! http://answers.yahoo.com:80/question/in ... lEB4G&show
  8. Er.... 6.5/10: Not my style. From an artistic point of view, the song is far too redundant and repetitive, which is why it was for a game trailer. Um... rate the.. music video! 日々の音色 ~SOUR
  9. Listening to my own guitar playing the Seize The Day solo (Avenged Sevenfold) That song is my favorite ballad recorded in the last 20 years.
  10. I'm running Chrome and a modem-wide ad blocker (modified modem blacklist FTW) EDIT: Personally, I prefer Chrome to Firefox. It's more stable (been using it for months, never crashed, while Firefox crashes at least once a week), I've never had any memory usage issues (FF can eat up half a gig in minutes the way I browse), it loads a hell of a lot faster (2 seconds between Start Menu click to the Google homepage), and it has better web standards (Acid3 is a breeze). And as it turns out, I don't have any urge to install any addons for it, though they are available.
  11. o_O I'm suprised at you two! I just made the "roses are red, violets are blue" one my cellphone's voicemail greeting
  12. I dare you to watch this and not laugh: Can't stop watching it
  13. My happiness: So many random things going on, you can't help but laugh! Seriously, what series of events took place for this image to result?
  14. Bah, I'm not even getting into the Global Warming debate. Too much of what I call intellectual nonsense, where one professional will spend 5+ years researching the impact a certain object of interest has on the climate, while another spends just as much time disproving the theory entirely. If, in the end, all this research leads to more human development and efficiency (i.e., cheaper alternative to gasoline/petrol), then I don't mind it. However, if we end up pouring big chunks of taxpayer dollars to save an endangered species of frog based on a theory who's basic validity is questioned, I'll have to... uh... type EVEN MORE big, run-on sentences, simply because that's what decides the debate- which side of the issue talks so much, the oposition gives up, while the people in the gray are posting Facebook status updates about their normal, more satisfying lives. In conclusion: Ignorance is bliss.
  15. This gave me a good laugh: http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/uplo ... rriage.php BTW, I'm pretty much pro-Gay, because both the inevitability of its future acceptance and the philosophical rights they deserve. Matter of fact, I have a gay half-brother who lives in Atlanta. Spent the night at his house once, and I must say, the relationship he has with his, uh, partner is among the healthiest relationships I've ever seen.
  16. Yes, that's exactly what's going on here. Just heard that Facebook has hit 350 million users. That's 115% the population of the United States, or a monumental 19.1% of the world population :shock:
  17. Right now, about 10 feet away from me, is a fake plant. An elaborate one, at that. Inside that plant, somewhere, is a lizard. It keeps running through the "leaves" of the plant, but I can't see it. I've tried to find it, but to no avail. Somewhat annoying.
  18. You know what I haven't done in over a year? Take a look at my post count. I'll let you know when I do...
  19. by RadioheadLikely the most artistic song they've ever recorded.
  20. PDN is number 12 on Lifehacker's list of "61 Free Apps We're Most Thankful For"
  21. I hate to burst your bubble, but a whammy bar and tremolo bar are the same thing.
  22. I'm thinking.... a mammoth named Brian and a thread that is probably going to be locked
  23. Happiness: I ended my composer's block, and my music theory research is paying off! I'm in the process of doing a remix (if you want to call it that) of Jigsaw Falling Into Place by Radiohead, one of my favorite songs of all time. I have most of the intro done, but so much to go....
  24. *yay* Dr. Pepper is one of the very few sodas I still drink (and 3rd party duplicate sodas when brand names get to expensive). Starting to get addicted to Dr. Pepper, too, ever since I ran out of my green tea, sweet tea, and black tea for a week >_< BTW, British tea is bloody potato, I can't take it.
