5956  The Rest / General Discussions / Israel to world: Fuck off on: July 17, 2006, 09:30:23 PM
Israel= the little kid who was always picked on by bullies and always did what they were told to do about bullies: report them.  But that never worked so they did what any kid would do- take matters into their own hands because that's the only thing that seems to work/be in any way effective.  You bullied me?  I'll take a gun and shoot you.  It's like Columbine on a grander scale.
5957  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / What did you watch? on: July 16, 2006, 09:58:48 PM
I was obsessed with 1980s cartoons.  The 1980s were the absolute best decade for cartoons, hands down! This is not an opinion, but a fact.  How could anyone not swoon over classics like Jem, Transformers, He-Man, She-Ra, Voltron, Smurfs, Snorks, The Raccoons, Mighty Orbots, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Inhumanoids, Visionaries, GI Joe, Spiral Zone, Turbo Teen, Saber Rider, Thundercats, Silverhawks, Dennis the Menace, Go-Bots, Muppet Babies, Rock Lords, Vytor, BlackStar, Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines, M.A.S.K., Spider Man and his Amazing Friends, Mysterious Cities of Gold, Ulysses 3030, The Little Prince, Rupert the Bear, Beverly Hills Teens, Johnny Quest, Sky Commanders, various Disney series like Duck Tales, Gummi Bears...

*deep breath* I know I'm forgetting a LOT, but I think you get the idea.

My faves were definitely the ones based around Hasbro toys.  Transformers and Jem pwned your souls.  GI Joe was awesome too.

My desktop: http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a262/nealch/desktop.jpg it's pure, sweet, sexy, completely unadulterated bass porn at its finest.  Pictures of Warwicks make me happier in pants than a lot of real porn.  And this pic of a Corvette Standard 6 by the pool is pure sex.  I have a Corvette Standard 4.  

My avatar comes from a piece of art by Ron Scire.  It's a faceless mystic guitar player.  http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a262/nealch/RonScire-guitar02.jpg

My sig is purely shameless self promotion: links to my weblog, my bass gear page, and my band's MySpace.

I'm lost as all get out in Ahriman's Prophecy.  So many things to do and requests and almost no hints regarding where to go and stuff.
5960  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment on: July 16, 2006, 12:04:35 PM
Song of the moment is "I Need Hope" by Sullen Door, because, well, we need hope.  We may be scrapping the demo because it's not sounding as good as we'd like it to and we don't want to give our audience a mediocre product.  So we're refocusing our energy on what we do best- play live.  People dig our live show and say we're lots of fun.  So we'll try to get as many gigs as we can, particularly at open mic type events to establish an audience.  

We landed a gig at a really good venue for Friday the 21st and now I just hope that we can get a good turnout.  I'm promoting pretty freaking hard for this one.  

We need hope.  

I'm looking
I'm looking for something
Something that makes me feel
Like I've got some hope

I'm waiting
Waiting for so long
So long that I hurt so bad
It's more than I ever had

I'm so tired
I'm so tired of being alone
Night after night
When will this end
When will it change for me?

I'm lazy
More lazy than most men
But maybe I'll make it there
If I go where it is

I'm searching
Searching for signs
I'm taking it all apart
But I don't know where to start

I'm so tired
I'm so tired of being alone
Night after night
When will this end
When will it change for me?
5961  Media / The Soundroom / News flash for you power metal sluts out there. on: July 15, 2006, 02:14:14 AM
Happens to a lot of bands.  Green Jello had to change their name to Green Jelly after General Foods kicked up a stink.  Due to multiple bands with the trademark on the name Dinosaur, a particular band with that name had to change it to Dinosaur Jr.  

Now if they had changed it to Rhapsody in White, I'd have laughed hysterically since that's the name of the poodle in "Best of Show"

Hysterical... especially the lady decrying the immorality of gambling except for betting on horse races.

http://www.dragonforce.com and http://www.hevydevy.com have MP3s on their sites to download, so you can try before you buy.  The Discography section of Devin's site has MP3s.
5964  Media / The Soundroom / Another Gem from Youtube on: July 13, 2006, 11:04:18 AM
That was freakin' awesome.  His touch, man, was so fluid.  Like a  mini-me of Eric Johnson almost.  

I remember seeing a vid of a 10 year old bassist playing Jaco's "Donna Lee" and my jaw dropped.

And that video of Tony Royster Jr. back in 1991 or so doing the most amazing drum solo at age 12 made my jaw drop too.
5965  The Rest / General Discussions / The importance of gaming in a potential girl/boyfriend on: July 12, 2006, 08:40:32 PM
So here's a topic of discussion for all of you.  Perhaps a somewhat potentially sensitive topic, but that's all good.  

Anyway, one thing that is universal among all humankind is relationships and the search for them through avenues like dating and all that.  So since we're on a gaming site, here's the query for discussion.  

How important is it to you that a potential girlfriend/boyfriend be into gaming?  Is it a must and that if s/he isn't into gaming that will be a dealbreaker?  Or are you willing to compromise on that?  If so/not, to what extent?  

The funny thing for me is that though I'm an editor for a video game website (I'll box your ears if you can't guess which one) and enjoy gaming immensely, the gaming factor isn't important to me in a potential girlfriend.  For me, music is the biggie.  If she doesn't at least respect my diverse tastes in music (Disney to Death Metal I like to say) and the bond between a musician and his/her musical instrument, that's going to be a sore spot.  The gaming thing, I can go here or there on; If she's not into gaming, it's cool.  If she is, then that's just icing on the cake.  Nice, but not always necessary.  But yeah, main thing is not to disrespect the stuff that I like.  

So how about all of you?  How important is gaming in a potential boyfriend/girlfriend?
5966  Media / The Soundroom / What records are in your mid-season top 5? on: July 12, 2006, 08:02:49 PM
The year is still young so I don't have a top 5 yet.  I do have a top 3 though.  In no particular order...

1) Devin Townsend- Synchestra

2) DragonForce- Inhuman Rampage

3) Dysrhythmia- Barriers and Passages

I'll leave the next few slots open.  The new Psycroptic album was good, but not top 5 material.  And I will give honorable mention to the Shameless Promotion mixtape by James Watts.  Watts is a hip-hop artist I got to jam with at a show earlier this year.  Man it was fun playing hip-hop bass.

Playing more Ahriman's Prophecy.  Fun game, though the old-school-Ys style battle system still takes some getting used to.  As is par for the course with an Amanda Fae game, there is a great sense of humor as well as drama in the plot.  What's also nice in the game is that during certain plot points, the characters actually age, mature, and grow up.
5968  Media / The Soundroom / YouTube is the greatest website in the history of the world. on: July 11, 2006, 10:27:41 AM

Here's a WoW music video that my friend Julie (who used to post on RPGfan as Pyra) did with the song "Jump in the Line" by Harry Belafonte.
5969  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment on: July 10, 2006, 09:24:02 AM
Song of the moment is a piece of nostalgia.  I was listening to the radio and they played Matthew Sweet's cover of "Scooby Doo" then they played some female band's ripping cover of the Jem theme song.  Hence, that's my song of the moment, because Jem was one of the absolute best cartoons of the 1980s.  Come to think of it, the 1980s cartoons for Hasbro toys like Jem and Transformers were the absolute best.  

Sure Jem was a girl cartoon, but I still watched it because it was interesting.  I mean, it had continuous and very deep interweaving plotlines with genuine human drama.  I still feel that vestigial sucker punch when I think about the episode where
the orphanage that Jem and the Holograms fund gets burned down.

They don't make cartoons like that any more.  The 1980s were easily the best decade for cartoons.  This is not my opinion, this is a fact and don't try to debate me on this, because I will win.  

Jem! Jem is excitement! Oooh Jem
Jem is adventure! Oooh
Glamour and glitter, fashion and fame!

Jem! Jem is truly outrageous
Truly, truly, truly outrageous!
Whoa, Jem! (Jem),
The music's contagious (outrageous)
Jem is my name!
No one else is the same!
Jem is my name!

But we're the Misfits,
Our songs are better,
We are the Misfits, the Misfits
And we're gonna get her!

The music's contagious (outrageous)
Jem is my name!
No one else is the same!
Jem is my name!


Me and my friends are Jem Girls.
Jem! Jem is my name.
Exciting adventure, fashion, and fame,
Once your're a Jem Girl, your're never the same.
Come on, come on, and be a Jem Girl.
Jem! Jem is my name.

Me and my friends are Jem Girls.
Jem! Jem is my name.
Truly outrageous that's a Jem Girl
Glamour, fashion, and fame.

Exciting adventure, fashion, and fame,
Once your're a Jem Girl, your're never the same.
Come on, come on, and be a Jem Girl.
Jem! Jem is my name. Jem
5970  The Rest / General Discussions / The World Cup - do the Americans care? on: July 09, 2006, 04:50:04 PM
I was definitely aghast at Zidane's headbutt.  Getting himself red carded in the crucial moments of the biggest game... a shame it was.  A shame.  Especially since France were playing so well, especially in the 2nd half and overtime.  What in blue blazes was he thinking?  

Now we wait till the next World Cup.  Till then, I'll still root for Real Madrid since my favorite players are on that squad (i.e. Robinho, Zidane, Beckham.)
