Re: Less Forums

Personally I prefer there to be no sub-forums. Before now, if something was in a sub-forum that just meant that I wasn't going to read it.

While I think bookmarks and subscribing to topics is a good idea I don't know if stickies should be completely done away with (which they haven't). Sometimes, I'm too lazy to log in (or can't) and I like to be able to find popular topics easily.

As for Junk, I don't care for it one way or another.

I, personally, like the changes so far. Thanks for the hard work guys :)

Re: You crazy sexy SOBS What is on your minds!

EDIT: After posting this I just read OL's news. Congratulations man!

I'm really excited. I've been back and forth with what I want to do in college but I always come back to one thing. I keep finding excuses for why I shouldn't but now I've decided to do what I love. So, I'm now officially a music theory and composition major with my instrument piano and a minor in guitar. Really excited for the future but I've got my work cut out for me. I must prepare to not have a social life at all for a while, haha.

Lamewad Music

Hey guys, I recently became a music major and not only do I get free 1 hour lessons in my instrument (piano) but I also get a half hour lesson in a second instrument! I've chosen guitar because I've taught myself some guitar but never really had lessons and would love to be get better. I'm also going to start taking voice lessons from my mom (also free) because she was a Music Education Major in Voice and she said she'd help me out :)

Anyway, I've started a channel on youtube to serve as a sort of improvement log. I've posted four videos; three videos from when I was in high school (they're pretty bad), and one "starter" video to begin showing off my progress (also bad haha :P). I want to post a video every month or so in order to help myself see how I'm improving over time. You don't have to subscribe or anything because I'm not really looking for that, but it's just something for myself that I figured I'd share with friends and family. You guys fall under the friends category... unless there's something I don't know about. Uncle Bob?...

Oh and this is going to be pretty much just Guitar and Vocals, no piano... unless I change my mind in the future.

Anyway my channel is Schmeman
http://www.youtube.com/user/Schmeman

And here's the first video. Thought I'd pick one of my favorite songs to start off with, "Place to Be" by Nick Drake.

Re: Lamewad Music

not bad, it'd be cool to see you make some originals. Not a fan of watching people play other people's music.

Maybe I'll make that a goal for my next video, an original song. However, I'll never stop playing other people's songs. I like doing covers and playing my favorite tracks.

What guitar is that LAMEWAD? Cool fretboard inlays.

Hey, sorry for hijacking yer thread, but check my channel as well: http://www.youtube.com/user/VyseHazuky/videos

Favorite Anime Opening/Ending Songs

What's your favorite Anime ending and opening songs?

I love the first opening to Hunter X Hunter (fav. anime ever!), makes me feel right at home :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1IAOZn2YwiQ

I love how they mixed it into the show on harmonica. I actually bought a harmonica just so I could learn to play this song :P

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyBL4ak4GhQ

Second Opening is great too :)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAflk4baHWE

I also really like the opening and most of the music in general from SDF: Macross

I do, and will, hate. Hatred is just as important as love, in my opinion. As long as my hatred is rational, then I can use it to better my judgement. Just as someone might spend their whole life with someone they love, they also spend their whole life avoiding those that they hate.

Re: Post a PM

I once had someone, on myspace, claim to be my father and began (in a long-winded private message) to tell me how sorry he was for never being there for me... or something.

EDIT: Found all of his messages.

Jim (jimbo) says

if your moms name is patricia and stephanie and michelle are your sisters and nick your brother
then we should probably try to talk. i have waited since you were two so if you arent ready i can continue to wait until you are do you know anything about me other than what you have been told
? the truth will need to come out eventually its concealment has cost so much already. i wont bother you again if i hear frm you i will finnally rejoice if nt i will deal with it if anything you need just ask .if it is in my power t provide, i will
later
jim

Jim (jimbo) says

had i done the things patty helped coach steph,nicki and mitchelle why is there no proof? why no prison record? why did i help deliever you and sign the originol birth cert,? why was i listed as your father on your babtism hard to believe my son could be so easily fooled and manipulated i taught you piano as an infant do you still playor was that taken with a lie of course in your best interest. please just try a dialog talk to me while im still here lies surround you by many you trust ask me for proof i have witnessess like kari my x that promised to provide you with the truth when this day came, i have suffered enough just to protect you untill you became a man regardless you will always be my son and i will always choose to love you from this life on clearly you sit in judgment of your own flesh and blood based on lies is that who you became,son?
love
jim

Jim (jimbo) says

hope you are well. still cant reason with your mom,but i tried for all thats worth.
you should know the truth. i never threatened you or any of the kids with harm.
they were told to lie to me when i called to talk to my wife. patty told them to tell me she was sleeping and i demanded nick wake her up it was an emergency. fact is she was out but told them to lie to me. also to conceal the fact my wife was pretending to stay with patty, while already screwing another man. that was the lie that cost you and i all to cover up my wife cheating on me.
then i came to get our dog my wife left behind . y had michelle lie to the police. claiming i stole her dog and broke into a store room and stole items that never got taken until kari came and got them.
i went to court to have them caught for pergery so patty sent nick and mitch to calli so they wouldnt catch her in her lies. she swore to the court that i was some past boyfriend that was stalking her and that i had no relation to you . she and kari destroyed my karaoke business and continued to make false police reports to keep me from contacting you . they kari stole my car and got me put on the street all to cover up my wife cheating. i protested kari moving in w patty they swore nothing would keep you from me. they lied months later kari came back to say goodbye she moved to mn. we fell back in love and i moved with her. that lasted 6 mo i called your uncle to try to get him to talk some sense into your mom. he also claims i made a threat to you that is so stupid he couldnt come up w a new lie? so i say to both of them you get them to take a polygraph i send you a crisp hundred.
if they pass yea right i send them each a hundred. and i submit to one myself to prove i never threatened to harm any one but myself all to cover up lie after lie.
we used to cruise in a 5.0 conv. you and your siblings stayed w us often we had a badass house w a pool nick and michelle didnt want to go home to pattys yelling so they said. anyway if u need anything i can provide its yours just ask and dont forget the 100$ challenge god be with you love jim

oh yeah i forgot your mom keeps trying to lay a guilt trip on me to get money.
she says because all your medical bills.
you will get part of a settlement i have coming ,if u want it . and you are the sole benificary on my life ins.
she can earn 1000$ by simply proving the truth under polygraph. and ill add another 1000$ if she discloses how long it was after she found out she was pregnant with you before she quit using cocaine on a daily basis. sure your condition wasnt helped by her use if not the actual cause. athousand dollars just to tell the truth to you while being tested let me know when to set it up. hell maybe in said i would fight for custody and she lied saying i said i would first it was kill you now she says she has a recording i threatened to kidnap you. bet she was doin coke then too peace out jim

Re: NTSC vs. PAL vs. Japanese

Panzer Dragoon Saga: While I really do like the Japanese cover art, there's something I just love about the US cover. It's simpler but I think it's ... I don't know I just like it :P I think it mainly has to do with the expression on Edge and Azel's faces.

I'm sure many people will disagree.

Re: Yakuza series

I think I'm one of those people who doesn't really like playing video games all that much. I love them, but the actual gameplay is not the most important thing to me. I like atmosphere and design... and I tend to have fun in ways very different than most people. It's sort of why Shenmue is the perfect game for me.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2056/1491004957_c46e228521_b.jpg

cost me 30 USD.

My collection is (slowly) coming along:
Shenmue NTSC-U
Shenmue II NTSC-U
Shenmue Versus Books
Shenmue VHS

and now the poster :P

Re: Your Favourite Theories

I kind of have the feeling that the only character from Shenmue II to make a return in Shenmue III would be Shenhua (other than Ryo of course). I also think that Shenmue III (this is all assuming that more than three Shenmue games are made) would take place entirely in Guilin. I wouldn't be surprised if characters like Nozomi, Ren, Gui Zhang, Joy, Xiuying, et cetera never made another appearance in the games, but I don't know much at all about Yu Suzuki's plans or anything and haven't done much research (any) so I'll probably be told I'm wrong pretty fast :lol:

These are all just hunches, gut feelings, I don't really have any way to back them up...

Re: Shenmue Contest.

I think you should try to take a good photo but it's not exactly an art contest, but should still be presented decently. As Axm said, the most important thing would obviously be what's being photographed, however, that doesn't mean you can't try your best to make it visually appealing.

I don't think we should exclude people in Japan. A good Shenmue inspired picture doesn't have to come from Japan, and wouldn't necessarily be the best if it did.

Re: What Game/Games Are You Currently Playing?

Today I decided to actually play through the demo of Resident Evil 6... even though I really haven't been a fan since 4 (well I didn't really like zero either but whatever).

Nothing happened in Leon's. I walked through some rooms and I think there were zombies. Chris' starts off with the lamest patriotic speech that should be just before the climax of a really bad action movie, and zombies now have guns. Fuck the acid spitting jackasses from Jake's storyline and - I don't know - I can't remember anything else about Jake's Campaign.

That's all that stuck out to me.
