  1. Quick reply FTW. This is pretty much the only forum I've ever gone to that didn't enabled the feature...
  2. For you, my friend, I have one word.... which actually seems like it should be two, but it is in fact a forced compound word that's technically not allowed in the English language, but is accepted in a modern day, Internet-driven society where language is simplified: Craigslist! That's how I got most of my guitar things. I got a Marshall amp with 5 effects (~$200) with a 20-foot Monster Cable (~$30) for $75, all in their original packaging. I also got my favorite acoustic guitar for ~$150. It looks like it's a trash acoustic, I bought it at trash acoustic price, but it's of surprisingly good quality (solid spruce top, mahogany body, tuners that keep pitch for weeks, durable). That guitar also somewhat replaced my electric (an Epiphone SG) because of the warm-toned pickup inside (perfect for all my Radiohead needs). Oh, but if you want to know about dream guitars... well, I have my ideas. The Ibanez S5470. Before that, however, I want to buy a hollow-body, but I can't say I know what to buy in that field...
  3. The British Govornment's decision really upsets me, like many others, but I don't think it'll work out for them in the long run. Either they'll loose more power from the limiting of their country, or the uproars, petitions, protests, and boycotts will force them to pull back-- it's the way the world tends to work. Very rarely is there a riot or mass uprising that doesn't create progress in later years (think Civil Rights, think Revolutionary War, think French Revolution, ect.) BTW, threw together an experimental remix of an Outkast song: http://drop.io/del_rio/asset/rosaparksp ... otherstuff ...it started up as a drumline, then another drumline, then an impromptu violin composition, some synth sounds with a Japanese Koto, then an acapella of Rosa Parks to fill in the empty sound waves Would be fined 50K if I were in Europe for making this...
  4. Okay, so on an endeavor to find random samples for future remixes, I came across the funniest cover of Yesterday (The Beatles). First, the original, one of my all-time favorite Beatles songs. Now, here's the cover. Still laughing EDIT: Just found that it's intended to be Turkish satire. Thank God
  5. um... rofl!(...?) My happiness: I like how almost every time I log into Facebook, someone starts talking to me about their life's issues No sarcasm, I'm serious. It makes me feel good how the people I get to know are willing to open up, not just sit in a corner in non-happy mode. This also makes me feel better in the sense that I'm the ultimate source of happiness no matter where I go
  6. Although I think a sarcasm font would be great, I gotta agree with Blooper. Sarcasm can be very effective if worded correctly, and if sarcasm doesn't work, just use a funny picture like so:
  7. Yeah, that happens sometimes. A month ago, I accumulated a friend request list of 14 people, only 2 of which I knew (those two I didn't like). I normally accept them if there's a friend connection somewhere, but I also had a friend request from a guy serving in Iraq right now (never met him even though... he even added me on MySpace :? ) But yeah, if the people look creepy, just deny.
  8. Heh, I didn't get the memo... rbndelrio is the name ____ Happiness: Lots of awesome paintballing yesterday (3 hours pretty much non-stop in the woods w/ unlimited paint for $20). Beats CoD any day of the week. Makes for a really intense moment when you're laying on the ground, watching paint hit the guy next to you and right over your head.
  9. http://scrawlfx.com/2009/11/rumor-faceb ... -fw-update Win! Facebook is the only thing that doesn't load well on the PS3 web browser.
  10. yeah, it was pretty disturbing at the start Watchmen was definitely the most violent thing I've seen in... well, I don't remember (not including bloody horror, where you expect the violence). But every time I look back on the movie, I always think "Wow, everything about that movie was epic, action-packed, and overall well done." It beats 300, IMO.
  11. Happiness: This post was made in a PS3 with a 250GB hard drive. All the space I'll ever need (don't plan on getting too many games, music only takes so much space)
  12. Ah, reminds me of earlier this year. A friend of mine and I went to a movie theater to see Watchmen. We go to the front of the line, fail to receive tickets because of our age. So we attempt to buy tickets for another movie to BS them. Turns out, we didn't have enough money on us (we went to Best Buy a few minutes earlier). So we try to get other friends to come (and donate...), but 30 minutes later, nobody comes. So we just walk in the movie theater ticket-less, walk under the barriers that lead you to the ticket collector, and walk in the movie. Watchmen was great Moral of the story: If you own a movie theater, don't bump the price up to $8 [bTW, there's a new theater in Downtown Orlando with massive, comfy seats and costs $4.75 per ticket]
  13. So today, after school, there was a protest. Neo-Nazis.... they hate everybody! Jews, non-Christians, liberals, blacks, gays... Yeah, local news was there (I got in the background! Not sure if that's a good thing...) Funny thing happened while I was walking up there. This girl I know was walking up at the same time I was, and I said to her "We should totally go gay for a few minutes," and she said "But I am..." Good thing she said that, because I was going to ask her out tomorrow
  14. Actually, both! But because I'm including remixes, I probably won't be able to make it an official release, just some bootleg zip file
  15. Oh yeah, so I'm working on an album. Like, a music album. I have two tracks done, but they only total to about 2 minutes Which is why I think I'll reduce the release to an EP. If I make it an album, then it'll be called The Alternate Side. If it's an EP, I'll name it Sallekh (long story... sorta).
  16. happiness: the forum works OH, and I got a comment on : Silly Americans.....
  17. Try one of the old Mac operating systems. They fit on flash drives
  18. You know two things I think about a lot? 1) what I would name a band if I started one, and 2) what I would name my future children. It's kinda hard to decide because these names tend to be pretty set in stone [and I intend on forming a band in the next year or so]. For a band, I consitered a lot of funny random names (LMFAO, Cake, Weezer, ect.), but it doesn't seem appropriate. I'd go for a short one-word name that makes sense (Muse is one of the best band names out there). And about 10 minutes ago, Elise just topped my list for girl names, because of the car manufactured by Lotus and the composition by Beethoven (well, not really because of the car). Just a random thought that's too big for a Twitter post.
  19. When I bought my iPod touch, they said about a week or two. It came in around 3 days.
  20. @Blooper: Actually, you're close. I don't use my backpack anymore. My guitar case has replaced it Oh, and some happiness: "The greatest thing about the Internet is that you can write pretty much anything you want and give it a false source." ~Jimi Hendrix EDIT: Quote now sitting happily in my signature.
  21. When I buy my flash drives, I take off the outer casing. Cuts the weight and size by half, and looks cool when you take it out ...then I Sharpie the outer surface as much as possible to prevent humidity damage (it works for me...)
  22. Well, I put my hands up... playin' my song. The butterflies fly away. Yeahhhh... Party in the USA ~Miley Cyrus My school clearly wants to lower everyone's spirits during lunch >_<
  23. I'm in a state of amazement right now. Wolfram Alpha (if you hadn't heard of it before, look it up) as a mini-site called WolframTones that generates music through mathematical equations, and it actually sounds like music. http://tones.wolfram.com/ I took one of the tunes it generated (they let you download the MIDI), and put it in FL Studio for putting decent instruments to it, and here's the result: http://drop.io/del_rio/asset/wolframtones-mp3 Just open your mind to ambient music theory...
