  1. I have come out of a long forum hiatus just to post my drool over this album. *drool* That is all.
  2. Most likely that fairy dust from Navi just got in her eye.
  3. I'd personally still want to wait a few months :0
  4. Verifying... *beep boop beep boop boop beep* K.
  5. A wild Star Salzman has appeared! He uses "Random Internet Colloquialism". Thread counters with "Annoying Facebook Girl".
  6. Too short indeed. As for Chicago, I only live five hours away and have always wanted to go. Same with Cedar Point. Basically, I'm going to have a lot of major bills paid off within the next few weeks and am going to be a lot more flexible so I'm up fo wutevah. As for other ideas, there is a going to be the Louisville Arcade Expo in March. It's basically a mini-MAGFest (from pictures I've seen of MAGFest) without panels and a few bands but a TON of retro gaming. I don't know if it's worth it to bring everyone to Louisville for it, but I'll definitely be going There was going to be another VGL during March in Louisville but the local orchestra is having budget problems, unfortunately. Also, I'm putting a vote in for doing this when it's at least warm (we at least know cold and rainy sucks right peeps ). Thanks for organizing this Andrew; we are due for one!
  7. 2. I submit because I like to share that mutual fondness of the original music with other people. I remember how I felt when I heard my favorite songs ReMixed and I want to give that back.
  8. I'm not gonna lie— seeing the thread title, I was hoping it was GrayLightning. But welcome back to you. I think us old timers usually go through a hiatus of some type.
  9. Ha, I like you're style. And that book looks really interesting Abadoss. I might have to give it a gander. Thanks for all of your input everyone. Feels good to relate. One thing that really took me to noticing this is I started listening to an audiobook in the car. Within a thirty minute drive, I probably distracted myself with this counting around 20-30 times and would have to rewind. It is a judgment call on the severity of it really. If it interferes with your life, that might be something to worry about. Or if they are thoughts you don't want to have and you are senselessly compelled to do them. I personally can't stand not having the control. If the compulsion spreads to other areas (generalization) like some of you have mentioned: walking inbetween sidewalk lines (I do that as well). Also, whenever I picked on my little brother, I had to hit him three times. I guess that's my fondness for compound meter coming out in me.
  10. After learning about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder's in class and the associated "counting" disorder, I realized, "hey... I think I have that." What I do is when I'm driving and there are street lights evenly spaced (especially on highways), as my car crosses one, I start counting "One, Two, Three, Four..." and so on until the next light and I start over. It's quite annoying, and even more so because I realize that I do it, but can't stop. Now the reason this is music related is because, even though correlation doesn't imply causation, I see that counting as very closely related to measures and beats. When my car reaches the light, that's beat one. Anyone who works in a modern DAW might see this as when the play cursor scrolls across the measures. I am curious if anyone else has experienced this type or any other type of conditioned generalization from being a musician/composer.
  11. I would do the same (partly because I don't have a Twitter account, and partly because I hope there isn't a character limit), but I'm having trouble finding a "general" contact form. I'd imagine this suspension is just a minor mistake.
  12. I fucking knew it was going to be Uematsu. I tried to think of the one thing that would make me feel most like an asshat for canceling my MAGfest plans to be financially responsible, and that was it. THIS IS NOT HALPING ME GROW UP GUYZ.
  13. Fascinating. And I just finished watching the Extra Credits episode's on game compulsion. What to do, what to do... waaaaahhh!!
  14. I was guided here through your other album release (Metocrity Vol. 1) and from just checking out your music overall. Man, I'm glad I did. "Espers" is right up my alley. I just purchased after previewing it on Facebook. If I was forced to describe this album in one word, it would be: rich. It contains such INVOLVING and EVOLVING textures and your passion shows through the intricacy. It's one of those very few places you don't mind getting lost in. The hurdles you crossed to make this album are truly inspiring as well. Thanks.
  15. I love you guys. Stay strong. I spread the word about you all as much as I can. Can't wait to get a t-shirt, but even if that whole thing doesn't work out, I know you'll put the money to good use.
  16. So I'd imagine since there are plenty of views but no posts, that: 1. People aren't posting because they are watching the videos (Yay! Sweet eh?) or 2. TL;DR (Awww....)
  17. The name says it all. This series covers how melody, harmony, rhythm, and bass... work. The sections are fifty minutes a piece and Mr. Goodall presents the information in very informative and creative ways. The series starts with melody, here: I couldn't hold onto this gem any longer It is one of my favorite series and I wish it was still in distribution.
  18. Alright neblix... when there is a product mentioned and you mention the qualities of another product, that's comparing. When you mention the qualities of a product that is in a totally different class (like a mid-size sedan vs. a coupe), that's borderline irrelevant. To say "I didn't like the size" in regards to a product that is meant to be small, is silly. Basically, this can be completely omitted because I'm pretty sure anybody with some decent common sense would know that a product deemed with the quality of "laptop portable" is going to have a more "scrunched" design and not as comfortable as, say, my Radium 61. No big deal though.
  19. Eeeee get it Larry! Gratz to the bohf of yas.
  20. Trying to compare a full size keyboard with something that is supposed to fit in your laptop bag isn't really fair. They are a different class. Of course it isn't going to feel right comparatively, but again, that's not the point. Besides, the velocity sensitivity may not be on board with a Steinway, but it is miles ahead of the Korg nanoKEY.
  21. The appeal of it is to not be big... to fit in a laptop bag (like it does in mine).
