I would recommend a UPS (uninterpretable power source) guy looking for computer parts. It's a power strip but its surge protected AND has a battery built in, in case there is a power outage your computer will have an extra 45 minutes of power. That way you dont lose your work!

You get peace of mind for $5.

And I make better music while I'm severely sleep deprived... which is apparently akin to being drunk.

Not that I'd know... I don't drink... but I've been told I get kind of whacky when I'm sleep deprived.

I've tried both techniques. I make better music when I'm totally sober and wide awake and energetic. Lately I've been doing exercises. I started about 2-3 months ago, and I just keep adding tiny bits in. Now I do about 2 hours, maybe less, of exercise per day. I feel so much better and alive. And because I burn that physical energy, it settles me down more when working on music, so I can go through things more methodically and patiently.

I mean, I've got more physical energy now that I'm doing exercises, but I feel more settled when I'm not exercising. How does that work? lol

Why has Breed disappeared randomly?

I know you all ponder this as you lie awake in bed everynight so I'm gonna answer it for you. Got a new job selling audio gear at guitar center 2 months ago and its been CRAZY. Overtime everyday kinda thing. Now that we finally arent understaffed, what do you suppose was the result of me working my ass off to save the audio department at my location? PROMOTION BABY. 2 months and I'm already the audio department manager. boo ya!

Also penis

penis everywhere

It's not. It's closer to being high than drunk, but in a less pleasurable/fun and more tiresome way.

And apparently if you get too sleep deprived, you start to hallucinate. Not good hallucinate either, scary Benadryl overdose hallucinate...

I can confirm this. I once used prescription stimulants to stay up for a straight week to work on all my finals one semester. I vividly remember blowing 20 minutes chasing an imaginary bat around a computer lab.

Also, every so often - and when I say often I mean every 5-10 minutes - I thought I saw a person sitting next to me in my peripheral vision. Every time I turned to look, there was nobody there. Freaky shit. I guess that's what you get when you combine severe sleep deprivation with long periods of total isolation.

Would I do it again? Maybe.

I usually do better in the morning, when I'm all refreshed and not tired. But I never get the chance since I'm off to college so it's always night.

What... the... fuck. I don't know if the mixing engineer made the right move or not by making her vocals sit in the background during the verse.

I don't understand how all the comments were complimenting the song. I couldn't even get past 1 minute. This is coming from someone who likes many new mainstream releases.

Pretty sure the compliments were all sarcastic. If they weren't then my faith in humanity will be gone forever.

That's actually perfectly normal. Stimulants mess with your nervous system so it's no wonder you started trippin' balls.

Yeah this ^. Stimulants dont cause hallucinations per se. Lack of sleep however does, especially in your peripherals.

You know what does cause hallucinations? LSD

God I miss LSD. Its been almost 5 years since my last trip =(

This is obviously a joke, whoever made it is trying to cash in on the "terrible song that will get extreme publicity because of a high quality video" train. Hot problems was the same thing. Rebecca Black was the only one I saw as a sincere failure, you can tell fat usher was actually trying by looking at the video quality, locations, effects, green screen and direction. All the newer terrible songs have static videos with little or no variations in scenery, those are cash in amateurs.

I'm pretty convinced that people see music. If I see a music video, the song sounds better if the video is cool. If I see an album cover, in iTunes as I play a song, it will automatically sound more professional than a track that has "drag artwork here".

Ever watched a movie and thought, "WHAT A THEME SONG!", then downloaded the theme song's .mp3 only to be very disappointed?

Im just reposting my fb status since its like lol wat and music related. So i made a bootleg of Spor's track "some other funk", it gets awesome buzz and recognition by some good names such as syrebral and NFG.

so my Spor remix gets taken off SC and off of nfg's wall, I never get any kind of notification that this has happened or why it has happened. Obviously Lifted and Chris Renegade had a little fun time enforcing his extremely dumb interpretation of Copyright Law which should not be enforced yet he somehow found a way to get a bootleg REMOVED off of soundcloud, something which has NEVER been heard of. Freakin crappy pop remixes litter the soundcloud tops and my work gets taken off.

To make matters even more nonsensical, Lifted follows me on soundcloud.
