I want my world back
As a child, rainbow was a colorful phenomenon that you could like. Later on, after studying the religious meaning, rainbow (according to Old Testament) become the symbol of forgiveness.
Now, if I want to express childhood purity or forgiveness everybody would (or will) understand it as a gay symbol only.

Recently, on a music forum, the word "fagot" and "fagott" were banned regardless that in most of the languages this means bassoon. So, if you are a musician on a music forum and you use Italian terms, as they are the standard (piano, forte, allegro, staccato, rubato...etc), you can't define a music instrument because the word might be offensive to gay people...

Reminds me of the case when a guy who was born in Africa and then moved to US was kicked out of a school because he defined himself as an African-American and was too white for that.

i agree 100% with you, i hate political correctness.

But your use of the word "gay" is in conflict with what you just said.

the word gay has only referred to homosexuals the past 20 or 40 years.

You can start solving the issue by using proper nomenclature for everything, detached from popular standards.

By any circumstance my comment wasn't meant as a negative thing to gay people, just two examples that by chance share a slice of human culture.
I have same rant about using green (in Romania if you would wear green, many people would take it as a political or ethnic statement), orange (same thing in ex-soviet countries) or violet.
Guess that Hindu culture has a similar rant about swastikas, Celtic people about cross... etc... etc...

Well, this seems as a solution... sort of.

Words and phrases are a target of negative connotations. I sometimes imagine how silly it would be to have a word or phrase that is commonplace today then become ruined with some demeaning or rude connotation in the future. We'll be all like "yeah remember when we could say yolo whenever we wanted? Too bad now it means someone who died of cancer..."

It's all relative! <3

Oh yeah I remember that. He listed himself as African American on an exam and the teacher told him to change it and he said no because he's an American from Africa and he ended up getting suspended.

Damn, I've been working on this school project due tomorrow for nearly 40 hours straight, and I'm STILL wide awake. Espresso works miracles.

If you just realized how efficient coffee is, then you're way far behind, bro.

So I have a question.

Let's say I were to hire a musician, let's say, a musician from Newgrounds, to do a musical score for a webseries...

How much would you personally ask for about an hour's worth of music?

It depends on what exactly you'd need. But I'd estimate around at least $3,000 ($50 per minute of music) for quality. I'm sure you could find someone that could do the job for a smaller price, just don't expect as good results! ;)

If you can keep me drunk through the entire production I'll produce an hour of music you can just have.

Keep in mind I'm no lightweight, but I'll accept the cheapest vodka.

Too bad it tastes terrible.

A single espresso is really just a shot except with coffee, so just have at it without tasting much.. order black coffee the next few times you eat out and you'll appreciate the taste soon enough. For studying, I like to have coffee and a big jug of green tea (any kind if caffeinated tea works tho) side by side, really helps the focus and dicipline. Coffee is also good for mornings, lunch, dinmer, after dinner, in the evening, during parties, at work,

Me and some friends did a fat-fuck-a-thon after college yesterday. We went from Burger King to Subway to McDonalds to New York Pizza. I felt like a pig. It's a wonder I didn't have a heart attack.

Audio Favoriting

Am I just blind, or is there no longer a way to view who has favorited one of your tracks?
