  1. Write whatever you want. That's the point of writing lyrics.
  2. I don't know why but I feel half tempted to toy with this.
  3. Can I be the creepy old man who fills in for Bahamut? Sorry you can't make it though man.
  4. I took Friday off work, so I may be coming to Minneapolis Thursday night. Bringing the photo gear as I'll be trying to shoot some con stuff for Japanator. OA, give me a call when you have some time so we can finalize plans a bit. Also, BBQ? That sounds awesome. Also, here's hoping for sure that the con will have walk up passes available.
  5. Ok, but just this once..
  6. Just listened to this. Turned out awesome. I giggled at my own lyrics. Seriously, this is very well produced, and very well worth the $5. I mean, it's just $5. Instead of a McFatty Crack burger, you could have a McFucking Awesome EP that you can enjoy again and again.
  7. I've had a few scary moments. Getting trapped underground in a storm drain system during a massive storm, and subsequently getting washout out of the drain system by the force of water and spewed into a river (there was a 12 foot drop involved in there). My body did not fair well. Another moment would have been running and hiding in the basement tunnels of an old mental hospital while someone was searching for us. And probably my most recent scary moment was watching my $3,000 digital camera tumble down some stairs and land on a tile floor. Somehow it escaped without a scratch. Thank you Nikon for quality. Also, TO, that's a freaky run in you and your boyfriend had. Glad you escaped that without injury!
  8. Full frame with video? Something like a Nikon D3S would be pretty nice. I thought about getting an HD video capable FX body, but decided that I'd rather focus purely on still photos for now, so I stuck with the D700. Granted having the HD capability would be pretty neat. Also, make sure your pockets are vomiting money if you want a D3S.
  9. What revisions need to be made? You said all the music was in and finished. I don't see what's left to be done.

    There are so many "mini-movie" gifs I could make out of all the shots taken.

    Ok, I went through all my photos. Out of roughtly 2,600 I kept 307. You can download the zip file of all of them here: http://www.technimare.com/MAGFest8/ If you can't access the site for some reason, I have no idea why. Some people can, some people can't. Someone may have to mirror the file if that's the case. All photos were resized down to 1021x680 from the original 4256x2832. Enjoy.

    One extra person? [shrug] If it's still open I suppose count me in. I kinda feel like a dick if I actually got something and didn't give anything back though.

    MAGFest had awesome moments. Here's one of them: Many more to come.

    Ahoy kids. Just out of blatant curiosity in the off chance that my insanity drives me to actually attempt MAG, is there anyone in the North Dakota / Minnesota area that is driving there that would enjoy the company of Flik sitting in said vehicle. It's not definite that I can go yet since I'd have to request time off work, but if it's more likely that I could make it there I'd actually try to go. PM me if there's any chances.
  16. Hmm, considering Minneapolis is pretty much next door to me I may end up going. We'll see.
  17. You will not be disappointed. The OneUps put on a fantastic show! Every year I see them play they just get better and better.
  18. Well, like I said a good variable lens will give some flexability if you're into multiple types of photography. The lens on my camera I believe is 24-120mm. This lets me get some nice wide shots as well as some very useable telephoto shots. Since my camera is full frame it's true 24-120. Any digital camera that is not full frame suffers from the crop factor. Not the worst thing ever, but you'll never have the full focal length of the lense at your disposal (24mm would end up being something like 35mm). When I was shooting film I had a varying degree of lenses. I had a 50mm prime, a 24mm prime (prime means it's a fixed length), a 24-80mm and I think an 80-200mm telephoto. I had a lot of fun with that 24mm. I still use that 50mm on my new camera for some really nice depth of field effects. Edit: As for macro photography, some telephoto lenses also had macro modes in them. The 200mm I had (well, still have but it's broken) had that mode so you get some really nice closeups. I'm sure there are more specialized lenses, but I have not looked into them.
  19. Best thing to do with your DSLR before you get into the bad "Auto" habit is put it in manual and simply start messing around. Go outside during the day. Set your ISO for 200 or so. Set your aperture to it's fastest setting (likely 3.5), and start your shutter speed off at 1000. Take a picture. Look at the result. It's likely going to look somewhat dim but still visible. Slow the shutter down a bit (go to a lower number). Take a picture again. Compare your results. Keep changing those three settings to see your varying results. Eventually you'll start to understand which settings work best for what lighting situation you are in. If you want to capture a fast moving object you need a fast shutter speed and the most light into the lens you can get. ISO will likely have to go up depending on the lighting. Don't forget you can also manually set your white balance. Right now the only automatic setting I make high use of is auto focus. It's a real blessing when capturing a lot of fast moving subjects. You'll be able to do a good bit with that 35mm lens, but you'll certainly want to get into a variable lens of some sort. If you're strapped for cash, take a look at some of the lenses by Sigma or Tamron. Not sure if that helped you much. I'm just spouting things off...
  20. I'm getting back into my photography a bit more again. I use a Nikon D700 now (quite the jump from my old D50). Even with the stock lens I'm getting some great shots. Here's one I like that I got when the Fargo air show was going on. http://directorflik.deviantart.com/art/Blue-Angel-134397780 I've got a lot more pictures to start showing. I should stop being lazy and upload them.

    If someone else was traveling (and by that I mean driving) from around the North Dakota / Minnesota area, I may consider attending MAG this year.
  22. I'm glad people are enjoying this mix. It was fun working with BGC on this and I wouldn't mind doing a collab again in the future. Looking back on this now I can hear things I should have worked on in my part, but it was my first real stab at drum and bass, so there's a lot to learn. Thanks for the comments everyone!
  23. I made some upgrades to my "studio" a while back and never sold off the equipment I upgraded from. Well, now I finally am! I've got a Yamaha MG10/2 ten channel mixer and a Behringer MDX2200 compressor to get rid of. I'm looking at $70 for each, or I'll do $120 if you want both (you pay shipping). These will work out pretty good if you're just throwing a little studio together to start messing around. I may not have all the documentation anymore to these, but it's not like they're needed anyway. If anyone is interested send me a PM and we'll work out the details.
  24. I played it on PC, so I wasn't limited by hardware. Loved the game, so I'd certainly look forward to #4.

    OMG Flikomp

    I guess there's only one way to find out!
