  1. Currently listening to my life's theme song (used to be in an iPod touch commercial, I think):

    Seriously, if your problems seem bigger than Kanye West's head, listen to this song. It has served me well for every time I've felt negative in any way.

    My secondary theme song:

    It's about the questions of life, and the pursuit for the answers, as well as the ingenuity of humanity and possibilities for the future. It's stuff like this that I think about all the time (and me having ADHD, I mean all the time).

  2. Spam bots are cute. They walk in and post a burst of quick and happy trolling ♥♥♥

    I'm wondering what I should do. Get an iPod touch or an Android phone? I hear that the Cliq is actually pretty good of a phone (outdoes the G1 and MyTouch), but there's always the Hero, Touch HD2 (coming out in less than a week), but the price is going to be pretty high. I already have a history of iPod touch use, and would love to get another with twice the speed and storage for $10 less. The ZuneHD is pretty much out of the question (to rough around the edges and new; would wait at least a year and a half).

    Oh, and I'm also considering getting none of them and going with a netbook (does everything I'd want a laptop to do, but quicker* and smaller)

    *quicker, in my dictionary, doesn't mean faster- i.e., the task gets done faster, not the processing of the task. Think Twitter posting or Facebook checking.

  3. A mix between emails and IM, maps, images, links, videos etc.?

    Yup. In a way. It's like this: If you and your friends are all online, and someone starts talking about cheese, then everybody can talk about cheese together. They can send pictures of cheese to each other, or YouTube videos about the history of cheddar if they wanted. Then play a game of connect 4 to decide what cheese to buy for the office party.

    So in conclusion, Google Wave is for realtime cheese discussion. Thus, it is awesome.

  4. My happiness: well, a lot of things, really. But I'll just type as I think of things I'm happy about.

    Google Chrome is awesome (I stopped using Firefox entirely a few weeks ago; Chrome is ~4x faster, and I never run out of RAM, and it passes Acid3).

    I just managed to learn the intro to Paranoid Android on my guitar, and it feels epic :)

    Oh, and I'm in Mozart mode (constant awesome music creation ftw).

  5. ...so while everyone's watching 2012, I'm going to be trapped watching New Moon with Tiffany.... *sigh*

    By the way, I'm trying to make something really epic out of this, but I don't know what to do (can't find acapellas that match it right):

    Any ideas? I'm trying to keep it minimalistic :)

    EDIT: Kinda just noticed that while I use FL Studio, one of the best techno making engines, I tend to stand by more real-world instruments for my music. I was never destined to make rave music, I guess.

  6. I never really noticed just how much work I put into that Reckoner remix till now that I realigned some samples and transplanted the vocals (there were random small clippings in the first version). Now I'm uploading the original files (minus the drum beats for reasons beyond my control) together in a zip file for the sake of future reference (over 45mb of reference...)

    EDIT: Yay!

  7. Is anyone aware of <it is NOT legit - removed by EER>. I don't know if it's legit. But. pure. awesome if it is.

    I think that's pretty cool. Much more appealing of a website than the one Rick dished out. The site looks more like a proof of concept. I don't see anything wrong with it. In fact, the license page is the same as Rick's (even kept the same developer names). There are even links to all the important parts of the forum, as well as the original website (someone from the forum had to have made this for there to be a link to the abandoned Wikibook).

  8. ^awesome

    [...]The one problem I'm having now is: I've decided to re-rip all the music that I lost in FLAC or OGG - per CD, depending upon whether or not I like it enough to go lossless - but I'm pretty sure my MP3 player doesn't support either format. [...]

    I don't see many advantages to FLAC; Honestly, I don't see a difference between 200-something kbps from 320 kbps mp3s. Besides, the speakers you're going to to them on and the environment nearby will probably not be of the highest quality. When I'm making remixes in FL Studio, I tend to either encode in 320 or 430 kbps, and I still can't get a grasp on its true sound with my speakers. When I hook up my PS3 to the surround sound system, the soundgasm begins (7 speakers, all with great bass and treble balance).

  9. ^Okay, then :)

    [...]I dual–boot Ubuntu also—good fun![...]

    I remember when I had Ubuntu on this computer... wasn't as fast as I wanted, even though I never really installed anything on it. I had XP running as a VPC, and it performed faster...

    Then again, that was a version of XP was the "Performance Edition", which I found at a certain pie-rating bay :wink:

  10. I found myself enjoying a Lil Wayne song.. :|

    The only songs I listen to with Lil' Wayne are really ones that he's just featured in, and I just end up laughing when he jumps in. Have you ever heard him try to yell? It's just sad.

    By the way, not sure what I should remix next. Shiver by Coldplay or, well, Never Gonna Give You Up. What should I do? I'll take other suggestions, too...

  11. You're not German :)

    Oh, I know German!

    Volkswagen bar mitzvah hitler über hakuna matata!

    Sorry, I couldn't resist :D

    EDIT: I may have just insulted a good portion of the world's ethnicities! Got the European Caucasians, the Jewish, the Africans, and the Japanese (for not saying Honda)...
