  1. Poor forums are plagued by audio ads. :( Can't goto a forum without "Rated M for Mature" blurting out.

      Seriously. How is this not an automatic Step 1 after getting access to the Internet? I blame bad parenting.

  2. Update:

    New track: IV. Desire. 14:12. Enjoy!

    Sorry for the bump, I didn't want to make a new thread.

    Hi all,

    I haven't posted music on here in ages. I figured I'd post my FB page. If you're banned on FB I'm going to upload on youtube at some point this week.


    Or, Mediafire links
    I. Overture
    II. Xenith
    III. City

    It's like prog/tech metal that's going to wind up being an opera of sorts. All of it is instrumental at the moment.

      Thanks for the input, I can actually make use of this. The tracks are going to be remixed at some point after other tracks are produced, and tracks like City are going to get lyrics from multiple vocalists (hopefully).

      EDIT: what's used

      FL Studio 10 with

      EZ Drummer
      Hypersonic 2.0
      Real Guitar

  4. So I'm in my girlfriends dorm and nobody else is really home yet for the upcoming semester. Despite this, the phone has been ringing next door for 3 and a half hours! Nobody is home! It's like the phone is glitched or something. Both me and my gf had the ringing noise go off in our dreams and it woke us up. We watched a movie, blasted music, and it's still going off!

      I once had some "wardialer" that rang a phone number thousands of times a second or something. This girl at school pretended to like me thinking she was genuinely turning me on. In the end i asked for her phone number, knowing it'd be a fake i wardialed it anyway. It turned out to be the number of some idiot who had left the school about a year before... oh well, no loss.

  5. Yeah, I fell off my bike and hit my head, leading to a concussion. I'm slowly remembering things, which is somewhat interesting considering this is my first blackout ever. I got bandages all over me heh.

      Last year, my brother was doing that all alone somewhere in California and fell and broke an arm. While stunned or knocked out initially, his head was saved by the helmet. He had to drag his bike to his car a long way because his phone wasn't working or something and drive a bit.

      This is exactly why people should wear helmets. I can't believe how many people I see without them, especially around town. I've gone through a couple by falling on my head mountain biking and cracking them slightly, but I've never had a concussion.

    The above is an epic piece that I'm working on. The song content is about a man who gets trapped onto an island full of ghosts and needs to find a way out. He eventually finds an oracle who tells him where to go. Parts 1 and 2 are complete, making the song at 30 minutes. The final part will up this to 45 minutes, and will be split to 3 tracks. And lucky for you, no lyrics.

    The song is created in FL Studio with the help of Hypersonic 2.0

    1. SyntherAugustus


      update! Part 2 done.

    2. DuckReconMajor


      It's beautiful.

      23:45 - 24:20 seems a wee bit out of place, though. Your plucky instrument startled me.

  7. I'm messing with FLStudio and am making music as part of an album that is going to be for an original Frets on Fire 'game'. The first song is an original with a Doomish feel to it. The other is the simple midi-mp3 conversion done in FL of shell32 that I did earlier.

      I'm not sure I would necessarily call the third one "techno", but to each his own :^)

      The instrumentation in Audstill is interesting, and I'm not sure if the first part necessarily matches the second part (which I like a lot better).

    3. SyntherAugustus


      Thanks for the feedback.

      I tried to add a prologue to Audistil because I didn't want it to all be too similar of a tune. I'll tune it up.

      MotD is crazy on purpose, but perhaps I made it too crazy. It's going to stay as is but I'll tweak it slightly (maybe change an instrument).

    My recent drums interest has gotten me to compose something in FL8. I simply used samples and made a few beats, but the song itself is pretty good as is. Eventually I'll compose something in real drums.

    If I'm really bored I may even fret this for Frets on Fire (yes, there's Drums in FoF now)

    Now to goto bed.

  9. I live right outside a certain tunnel in NYC. Often there's a car crashing with another car (guy A going into tunnel and the other guy B crossing the avenue/street, with guy A trying to get into the tunnel so hard he crashes into car B). However, what just happened is different. Guy A doesn't give a shit about guy B and simply backs up his car and continues into the tunnel, with the guy B's car somewhat wrecked.

    Luckily the cops patrol the area often and saw most of this, and guy A goes "After him" and the cops give chase.

    I just find it weird I spectated all of this. I'd make a gif out of all of this but I should be sleeping right now.

      Deaths so far?

      Nope, just really injured to my memory.

      There was this one time where a guy stops his 4x4 before crossing to the tunnel to the nearby deli. While he's at the deli his car explodes.

      holland tunnel? if thats were your at, then yeah I know how it is. I have a freind that lives in the area and there used to be a great club called the wetlands down there. traffic can get pretty gnarly down there.

  10. The other day I got asked to goto some sort of presentation. Apparently it turned out to be yor.com, some company that has some VOIP service, and if you make "you're own business" to help them out you get funded somehow (with selling stuff, gaining profit out of pyramid schemes, etc). Anybody familiar with these guys? I'll describe my 5 hours wasted later.

      ...The all important gift or fake purchase is for free trials (mostly dialup, some voip) that they send you in an email and would total a value of $420 if they were real accounts, and there's a $30 discount of $390 for 1 spot so act fast!...

      the free trials expire after 6 months as if they lose value over time or some garbage, so you need to continually buy new sets. Plus you need to maintain 2 active service accounts at over $200/yr each in order to receive money from recruiting, and those are at full customer cost. You can't use the trials for this because they are of no value. You don't get any breaks for being a representative of the scam. And to top it all off, there's an annual fee of 2 x $60 per spot.

      "get funded" indeed.

      Im of the opinion that you should never ever trust any pitch exclaiming that you'll receive help in "making your own business". What that really means is that you'll be taking all of the company's risk for them with no compensation.

  13. I'm working on a story that would likely be used as my Make Something Unreal ut2007 project (matinee movie). I'm not planning on making the full film with ut2007 (maybe a scene). This is from the main document.

    (ignore anything about the series for now, as it doesnt have to do with the MSUC project).

    “Aknai: For Love” is going to be a science fiction love epic that will follow with a series (with indirect plot. The main plot of the movie will not relate to the series (known currently as “The Cry”.
    The Film takes place in 2010, not far from now. In Turkey (subject to change), a corporation led by Jakob Cuthboth (known as just “Noz”) takes over Turkey via a coup, paying off various military leasers to do so. He makes various false accusations that eventually convince the public. For a half year, Noz pretends to be the new leader. After the world has recognized him, he begins the plans for his war machine. Civilians randomly become slaves, and word eventually comes out. A neighboring country falls victim (unknown at the moment) to the war machine as Noz's empire begins to grow.
    The world doesn't know about this until a prominent rebel, Atiyha (at-tee-uh), spreads messages quietly as a form of public. Noz figures it out and forces her into his grasp.
    It doesn't take long for the world to know of the problem, and the U.N. scramble for forces, with many European countries and eventually the United States participating. What they begin to learn is that Noz plans on creating weapon technology far beyond the human imagination, and he must be stopped before he tries to take over the world.
    The Tennan Squad, formed of a diverse countries of soldiers, will be the main focus of the story. The main character is Lenna Lorthwick, a Corporal in which the audience will eventually find out her lesbian love for Atiyha. The secondary character is Augustus Valek (or Augi), a Sergeant who is trying to couple with Lenna. The third character is John Almeda, also Corporal, who serves as a friend of Augi. The three, as well as various minor characters, will be the main people of the plot (with Lenna being the main focus).
    The main focus of the film will be the forbidden love of Lenna and Atiyha, which ends in the tragic death of Atiyha (being the climax, not the ending). The first humanoid mech (later known as the first HumaMech), the “Generation” , will also be focused. Lenna's main ship that she'll pilot, Athena , will be a focus in two scenes. A subplot of course will be Augi, as the audience will be familiar with the character as he'll be the main character of the series (if that happens).

    Need input!

      Oh well, (tears down project). Perhaps I'll do something with the war part.

      edit: oddly enough I've never seen casablanca. On a more serious note though, what can I change besides removing the lesbian crap? Because I've been thinking about this thing for a while now.

    3. AndrewB


      I really don't think there's anything in there worth keeping, frankly. And your writing style in general seems very detached. I'd say it's written like a Reader's Digest article. Maybe someone else knows what I mean. That, and there are quite a few grammatical gaffes that are concerning.

  15. Last week a fight happens and this is how the principal reponds. I'm a junior and I wasn't at the scene.

    Dear Seniors and Juniors,

    As you are well aware, last week, a terrible thing happened afterschool right outside our building. Regrettably, the information that has been shared so far is inaccurate, as many students have chosen to gloss over where they were and what they know. While I realize that most upperclassman were not there as participants or witnesses, I also believe that most students know exactly what occurred.

    Unfortunately, the students who attacked the 9th grader were, by all accounts, all seniors as were several of the witnesses. The remainder of the witnesses were mostly juniors. The school has asked fore people to be honest about what happened and that has not happened yet. The result is that my trust in the senior and junior classed to address the issue honestly has been exhausted. In the absence of such trust, I cannot be sure that we are safe, that students will conduct themselves graciously outside of the building, Therefore out to lunch provileges have been cancelled for all 11th and 12th graders starting Wednesday, April 5.

    My concern runs deeper than just day-today activities at school. Under the current cloud of misinformation, apathy, and fear, it seems like anything that happens is acceptable. This means that any tightly unregulated event involving groups of students has the potential for group violence because someone does not like what someone else said or the way they looked at someone else. Given the risks involved, I am preparing to cancel the senior trip and the senior prom.

    Our first option is, and shoukd be, to decide to address this situation honestly and openly. Re-establishing trust after this horrible display is very important. It seems like there are several paths to this, all of which involve honest statements from students about what they know, saw, or have heard. The alternative is to decide that we are no longer a community and that we are going to forfeit the benefits of being one. that would entail sending the prepared letter to parents this Friday, April 7th canceling the senior trip and senior prom. To continue to lose precious time addressing this issue after that point is not anyone's best interest.

    Name Removed.

    Note the following things..

    -Freshmen provoked the seniors and it may have lead to this.
    -People were at the scene but didn't do anything.

    Well, what would jesus do? I just think my principal is handling this the wrong way.

      well you're a junior right? so am I, but thats besides the point. The point is, he said he'd cancel senior prom, unless I misread something. At my school, the juniors would cheer if senior prom was cancelled probably cause of class rivalry :P me personally, I'd feel bad though.

    3. Ralphis


      Your school obviously has a bunch of retarded philadelphia city kids who all need to be gas'd anyway.

    4. DoomDan


      Meh, I never really bother with proms and such anyway. I just look foward to graduating. I'm sure if anything like that happened here, nothing like that would happen since school fights where I live are common.

      It obviously was

      I used a doom engine for a homework assignment once though. We had to build a 3d model castle, so instead I put it in doom and replaced the bad guys with some imps. The castle was made in legacy and I replaced the weapons with the rocket launcher. Then when the teacher walked away and the rest of the class watched, I whipped out the BFG in medieval times. Rock on.

      But my project was actually cool

    4. AirRaid


      I had to do that (not a castle but similar), but I did it in Half-life. But then, I actually was supposed to use a '3d CAD' package. No package was specified though.

      That 'poster' is terrible though.

  17. After playing Call of Duty 2 with the idea of throwing potatos, I came up with an awesome weapon mod idea. I'm putting it in blogs because it's just a silly idea.

    FOOD WEAPONS!! (Call of Fruity!)

    Silly list

    -A "peashooter" that actually shoots peas.
    -A battle rifle that shoots string beans.
    -A chaingun that shoots cheez doodles.
    -Steak Launcher (name sounds familiar? ;) )
    -A sniper rifle which shoots carrots
    -Potato Grenades
    -Banana Stick Grenades
    -Rocket Propelled Grapefruit -Thanks Airraid.
    -Hot Tobasco Sauce as a flame thrower
    -Chargable Cheez Gun (that shoots cheeze blobs)
    -Pie Mines -Thanks Doors for this idea.
    -The nuke weapon would be Swallows that carry Coconuts.
    -Pineapple nade, which when explodes it hurts surrounding enemies with the pineapple's pointy "shards" -Okay bloodshedder!
    -Pepper Spray, for close range combat! -Thanks Airraid.
    -Ultra ThinCrust Pizza Pies (sawblades!) -Thanks Ichor
    -Acid Soda bombs, which explode with shrapnal and the liquid on the floor would hurt anybody that steps on it - Thanks lizard.
    -A HERRING!!! -The knights of ni, or er.. thanks bucket!

    When I first saw you with your lustrous eyes
    The world had seemed to collapse before me
    I almost felt like I might just die
    Before my soul can tell you to believe

    That you transcend the beauty of all angels
    The eyes of mine do not hallucinate
    I feel as if I were in a tangle
    My heart, it beats, awaiting for a fate

    For my emotions sink in deepest love
    To your visage, and you astral figure
    None other, that I will ever dream of
    That I will remember forever more

    I wish you can live for eternity
    Cause my love for you is infinity

  20. And so I am now 16. Hooray! There's nothing much for me to say. I saw Team America last night and it was good but perverted. Anyway, time to watch Yugioh!

  21. I have to do a sonnet draft due tommorow and I came up with this. I was wondering what you guys thought of it.

    When I first saw you with your shining eyes,
    The world had seemed to collapsed before me.
    From which the the heavens, where the angels glide,
    You are the most beautiful I have seen.

    You surpass the beauty of all angels.
    I cannot lie, I've seen all the others.
    If maybe, the heavens can let me tell,
    that is, your wings are glowing with feathers.

    I see you now, my heart in deepest love,
    with your face, and your terrific figure.

    None other that I will ever dream of,
    Will keep a stay in my heart forever.

    I wish you could live for eternity.
    As so should I, love is infinity.
