Theres 99% things i dont hate.

Its almost as if whenever i make a single post about anything, the whole lounge completely pulls in on my post, then the mouse turns into an elephant, than a dinosaur.
Then calamaistr gets a forum ban because he just loosely spoke his mind, wich is apparently goddamn dangerous like because calamaistr is alot like a political party, if calamaistr says something, something has to be done about it, fast.. before the people rally behind him.

imagine.

Without the stupid beat it would be decent lounge music though.
Now it sounds a bit like 'lovemaking music'

all it needs is some male voice grunting and groaning in a mic with 200% reverb.

That's one of the reasons I hate smooth jazz. I like the drums in jazz, and that smooth crap takes all of it out. So much about it is banal as hell, I can't stand it.

But I mean, the real reason is just that it elicits a very unpleasant emotional response from me. Hell, a lot of the music I like is banal as fuck, it just comes down to taste.. However... If there is a hell, smooth jazz would be the sound track... That and J-pop... Maybe some kind of diabolical fusion of the two.

I think the problems i that when you are having fun in this topic, you just cause everyone not to have fun with your bold and arrogant statements.

I agree that we can't just talk about cocks all the time, that's something that's mostly done simply to ease the atmosphere after a heavy debate. Call it tradition.

However, if you talked lightheartedly about just how fantastic you are at things, you're bound to annoy people (especially me I imagine, it's one of my biggest pet peeves to see spewing their huge ego everywhere).

I guess you could say it's one of the unwritten rules of conduct around this topic, to be modest. Or at least that's how I perceive it.
Now, lounginess.

Snow is coming

It seems that we'll be getting some of that good ol' snow again here soonish. I do like the look of snow, it makes for some great landscapes, which are great for photography. I didn't have the chance to make snow photos with my current camera (the Nikon Coolpix 8700 I bought from loans), so it'll be interesting to see what I can come up with.

There are only so much photos of snow you can take without it getting boring though; and that's where snow no longer pleases me, it gets in the way for a lot of stuff: you can't properly bike anymore, it sticks to your shoes, making the floor inside a mess, and so forth. Here's hoping it won't last as long as last year.

What are you guys' opinions on snow?

Probably a wave perfectly formulated to make you feel like you were on some kind of happy pill all the time.

Basically, the music would suck even more, but you'd be so strung out on god waves that you wouldn't care.

If you don't have to do anything that involves a car(clearing snow off of your car and driveway.. oh, and driving itself), working outside, or live in an urban environment where consuming said snow is likely to really fuck you up, I'm sure snow is fun.

Unfortunately, I have all of those problems. Snow can go blow a bag of dicks.

Hans Zimmer
My opinion, and I give some reasons and arguments to support it:
1 - Hans Zimmer have FANTASTIC melodies, not only in Lion King but on many sondtracks he did. If you strip out the orchestra and play those on piano they will still be powerful and dramatic.
PROOF
"Now We Are Free" - Gladiator theme
Davy Jones theme
2 - The orchestration is not just BIG, it is smart and usually build counter-melodies that are really touching. Listen HERE at 1:24 how beautiful is the French horn line.
3 - He practically invented his style. There was no usage like this African/pop/Japanese/ostinato usage of grancassa+toms+taiko+stampede+(add big and bigger drums).
4 - His knowledge of ethnic music is shown in orchestration very well, from usage of African rhythms and African like themes in Lion King, Japanese instruments and themes in The Last Samurai.

Of course, when you work for clients that have specific requirements, you do what the client ask. As a film soundtrack you get less credit and freedom then you might think (who won a Grammy for Lion King soundtrack ? ELTON JOHN). Also, when you score more than 100 movies you might sometimes repeat yourself or "get inspired". Happened to others also and nobody called them "shit".

I would love to have 10% of knowledge of orchestration of that "shit" and I would love to be able to compose themes memorable like Gladiator, Lion King or Pirates of Caribbean.

Smooth Jazz
In 70% they used to have good music in porn movies, from Herbie Hancock to Frank Zappa, all the jazz-rock, funk or psychedelic rock.
Later on they had to smooth it down and got to this (quite lame) style. Still, if you search enough you might find some gems even in that kind of music. Depends very much if it's George Benson or Kenny G.

He's not that bad, most of his stuff doesn't appeal to me. Those were some good examples though.

I understand the part of being modest and humble. But this is a forum thread called the lounge. If someone makes a really arrogant statement you could easly ignore that person. And he would eventually stop.

Infact i am tired of people expecting modesty on a website full of hentai cartoons and cock jokes.
If Calam wants to say that Hans Zimmer is the biggest turd in the universe, so be it!
Its just a opinion after all even though he sees it as a fact.

I for one like Hans Zimmer's music. Not a big fan but still would chill and give a good listen. Music is VERY subjective. So everybody has a free opinion on that.

Egoraptors website
I find the most funny and most simplist website ever! http://www.egoraptor.net/
I thaught i was the only one with a simple website like that XD

Websites fully made in flash

I have seen very few of those I actually liked. What bugs me the most about them is that, obviously, they're totally worthless if you don't have flash. What bugs me more is that so often flash is used for things that can (easily) be achieve just with css and/or javascript.

We live in a world where people don't understand that you don't have to say "In my opinion" or "I think" for your statements to be an opinion.

I get into a lot of trouble for that. It has nothing to do with being humble or anything, it just should be a given. What I say is an opinion, unless it is something that deals with cold hard facts.. like, my penis being 13 inches long, and the thickness of a soda pop can.

Saying something in a matter of fact tone does not make the person saying it arrogant. But regardless, arrogance can be funny. MillsApparatus for example cracks me the fuck up. What is even more funny is that people take the shit he says at face value.

Over the internet, that style of communication doesn't really work.. In the real world, your words are accompanied by tone, facial expressions, and other things that effect delivery. If you are good enough at communication, you can say the most arrogant, retarded, pulled out of your ass shit, and it would just come across as you being funny. I'm facetious as fuck.

Everyone is full of shit.. Most people are like candy coated lumps of colon loaf.. I on the other hand am like a candy bar buried in a pile of dog shit. I openly admit I'm full of shit, most people are full of shit, and try to act like they aren't. Does this make me superior? I don't know, maybe, maybe not, but I personally wouldn't dig through a pile of shit to get a candy bar.

um....

Rave time!

If you think the rest of the lounge is stupid as fuck, then go away. All of us stayed pretty much silent because you and only a couple other people were arguing over stupid shit. Stop it please, this whole lounge screams "I'm a newbie" now.

Yay indirect insults.

On the subject of intelligence, anyone done the Myer-Briggs typology testing? Agree/disagree with the results they received?

I got INTJ, which matches up pretty well to how I feel.
