I know that you didn’t specifically ask for a musician, but I can compose the soundtrack if you’d like.

Topic: Collaborations / Guitarist/Composer- needs experience

Hey, so my name is Chase. I’ve been playing the guitar for 8 years, and for the past few months, have gotten really into recording. But let me back up a bit. I’ve been into weird music my whole life, and have always been interested in composing and doing things using technology. That has led me to become a music technology major at Florida International University. I start in the fall. I run Protools on my computer, and have gotten pretty damn decent at making it sound good. I’d love to get some experience by helping to make a game. I won’t require payment, even though this is what I want to do for a living. I’d love to help make the music for a game, so please contact me!

Topic: The Arts / My music

The change at roughly 1:15 is pretty rough. What I would do is add a ritardando there and maybe have a walk up to the second part. Transitions are always tricky, but the parts themselves are actually pretty good. The second transition back to the Skyfall-sounding part (compliment lol) at 2:10 is also rough, perhaps a crescendo then stopping like you did would be a good idea. Now at 2:45, that transition works. I have no idea why or how, but it really works.

What program were you using? Any third-party plug ins?

Topic: The Arts / Writers block

Hey everyone. I’m sure that this has been posted about 1000000000 times before, but I really don’t want to dig through all of the pages to find it. I’m a musician, guitarist/composer, and I’ve been having some trouble. I’ve been trying to write for a while, but I just can’t think of anything. I think I have gone 5 months without creating anything new, save for one song with my band. It’s torture. How do you guys get out of a hole like that? Any and all help would be appreciated. If this has already been posted I won’t be offended if you send me there. Thanks.

5-Yes, it does seem a bit overpowered though.
6-Yes A
7- A
8- A if it’s epic.

Topic: Card Monsters / Northern Storm Deck

I can surrender trick nearly every time with this setup. I don’t have exact numbers, but I can edit once I do.
L: lvl 4 watercat+staff of power
M: lvl 2 snail+heal flute
R: lvl 2 eagle+long spear.

I plan on leveling them to 5, and see how that does.

UPDATE: Even after just leveling snail to 3, I haven’t lost a single time. I’m still gonna keep leveling it and the other cards, and hopefully it can MS. For the rest of the deck, just get cards that can take you through wave one. A lvl 5 headless should take you through all of it.

I wonder why.

Nearly all news outlets, especially major ones, do fluff pieces. Here is a fluff piece the BBC did on some local kittens: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-suffolk-20266653


You have fallen victim to the anti-American bandwagon. The bandwagon that says that America is just full of itself, and doesn’t have anything nearly as good as foreign stuff. America has reached saturation for the rest of the world, and it has become the vogue thing to do, the trendy thing, to rail against American stuff and flaunt the fact that you use something other than American. Whether that is news, or politics, or education, or music, or games, or whateverthefuck… I can’t wait until the bandwagon goes from vogue to cliche. Then, when everyone realizes that the rest of the world has its faults, just like America does, and that it is nothing new, and they begin to give credit to the US when it is due, then people like you will fall off the bandwagon. People like you who do stuff because you see other people doing it. People like you who follow culture and trends, who recite the same bullshit they read somewhere, or heard someone else saying. When people like you fall off of one bandwagon, and quickly jump onto another, I’ll be the same place, down here, pointing out the inane bullshit you guys preach, too busy having your heads up your asses to realize that you’re absolutely wrong. To busy nodding in agreement and patting each other on the back to realize the trend you follow exists just because it is a trend, and not because it has merit. You are person #5,748,433 in a large mass of people who are unable to think for yourself, so you all think for each other, in one massive, idiotic, lump of annoying shit.


Wake up from that. See that product A that you slander and try to replace with product B, is, in essence, the same exact thing, often sold to you by the exact same person.

I’m sorry for making this so long, but I don’t know how to quote only a portion. You got me there, there is obviously fluff pieces on the BBC. I recede that point.
Also, I’m not a hipster. I don’t do things because they aren’t mainstream. I don’t dress in “vintage” clothing and only listen to indie rock while riding my longboard and writing a screenplay on my mac. I listen to Led Zeppelin for gods sake. I have a hipster friend, he’s so goddamn annoying. His tastes constantly change, and he’s so fucking predictable. Anyway,

I am not anti-American. I am frustrated with many things about this country, and other countries happen to do right. Like healthcare. We are the only country developed country in the world where people go bankrupt because they get sick. Your healthcare is tied up in your work. So, if you lose your job, you lose virtually everything, because, guess what? Your retirement plan is ALSO covered in your job. So you have to start rebuilding your future, your health insurance, nearly everything from square 1 without your job. Also, in America, we are full of ourselves. Another thing I see wrong here is that we live in a culture of waste and excess. I’m not saying other countries do it better, maybe some do, maybe some don’t. I haven’t travelled the whole world. I’m also not saying I am not victim of this too, because I am. Nothing here means anything. The line from Pulp Fiction sums it up best “I’m American, our names don’t mean shit.” That’s really true about the whole society. Nothing here means anything. Or at least, how I see it.

I think there are many failings of the United States, but nothing we can’t fix. And no world or no country is perfect, never will be, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try. Although we’ll never reach perfection, always persist to try.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Debate: Is Human Nature Inherently Good Or Evil?

Obviously, one must define “good” “evil” and “human nature” before even attempting to answer this question. For the purposes of my reply, “good” will be “helping others, being responsible, and helping the human race, in one way or another, no matter how small”. “Evil” will be “being selfish, being wasteful and contribute nothing to us as a society”. “Human nature” will be “the way humans generally are”. I think that humans are inherently neither. Obviously, humans have the capacity to be both good AND evil, but the way human nature is can make it tricky to see. I think the majority of people are good, but given the proper circumstances, they can EASILY be persuaded into being evil.

Gentlemen, allow me to present the hipster in its native environment.

LOL you got me there. If you look at it though, American media is US-centric, and filled with fluff stories. Like you don’t see a story about a cute local kitten on the BBC.

LOL please. The US doesn’t care about our people. We give tax breaks to oil companies and rich people, we allowed SEEDS to be copyrighted, patented property, and we basically say “fuck the poor and homeless, we want more guns”. That is the govt and much of society at least.

Topic: Serious Discussion / How different would USA be seen if...

I think we would be seen different if we didn’t have such a materialistic, famous because you’re famous culture. Also, I think that the fact we really don’t seem to give a shit about the rest of the world. Just look at American news. Pure US bullshit. That’s why I switched to BBC. Anyway, we have a society that celebrates idiocy and looks down on intellectualism. We have bubblegum culture full of selfishness, nothingness, plastic, and bullshit. We do things that are harmful to us, even though we know it’s bad, like electing George W Bush. We start random wars for no reason, and spend way too much on military. We have no universal healthcare (only developed country to not) and have a HUGE military. If we can spend money to kill, why not spend money to save lives? We have more homophobia, racism, and radical religiosity (like, being horrid people justifying via religion, not believing, so please don’t give me any bs) than any other developed country. We stopped dreaming. We landed on the moon. Then we descended into a greedy, fake society, while the rest of the world move forward. That’s probably why other countries look down on us, or at least why I look down on the country I call home.

I don’t know if this is already available and I don’t know it, but a random game feature would be nice. I have often come here and been left flustered, like when you look at your fridge and you don’t feel like anything.
