Scholarship

For those of you who care, I ended up not getting the scholarship. Oh well, life works itself out sometimes.

Don't get them cell phones, they never stop texting you. My step sister received one from her mother and now I'm getting texts every minute asking what I'm doing and why I havn't responded to her last text.

Nags more than my girlfriend.

It's the laziest type of music to make, because all you have to do is go to VGmusic or something, rip midi files, and then pretty much all the work is production.

Most of the stuff posted on the audio portal is lazy. You can hardly get lazier than techno and Videogame music.

Not trying to elevate myself or anything.. Most of the stuff I post is crapped out of my ass in the span of about an hour or so while I'm drunk off my ass. There are exceptions, but hey, no one likes my serious music. Only the shit I do when I'm tanked. >.>

Not sure if you're using techno as a broad term for electronic music likes or literally techno like a 303 with a gate on a 4x4 kick cause if not you're only 50% correct.
Alot of electronic music can be a producers nightmare (if you create all your own sounds and everything) it takes just as much work as creating a 'real' song if not more because not only are you composing it, but now you're designing your own instruments.

But if you just meant the actual genre of techno then yes, you're right.

Techno and basshunter sound-alikes can lick muh ballsack.

Yes, I'm specifically talking about techno, and pretty much "dance" music in general. Some of my favorite pieces of music are electronic, and there a few artists I really like who either did electronic music at one point, or that is all they do.

The whole making your own instruments and sound part of electronic music does appeal to me, though I will still make fun of the person who spends more time getting the correct tone to collapse a colon than actual composition. Tone can make or break a composition though.

Want proof? Just submit anything with midi instruments. No matter how bitchin you might think the piece is, it is hard for people to look past tone. =p

Unfortunately, I've never had any good production equipment. I'm poor, and Santa left me a lump of coal. =(

most dance music that you speak of is pretty crappy and boring (however catchy)

but check out people like Rob Mayth who create Hands Up! Which is kind of like a super sub-genre of dance (even though the genre is a pile of shit nexus preset users now) but he basically solidified the sound for the genre and has some pretty complex happenings in his songs if you listen for composition and production.

other than that you're spot on.

Tell me about it. I have a "friend" from my old church who is 14 and just got facebook. He keeps sending messages at me asking what am I doing or why aren't you talking. This is why I hate facebook, because I'm online to talk to my real friends from the states or talking with someone who I'm going to collab with soon.

Flash Artists

I've finally found one that I can make video game songs for. He's a quite good animator for games which I'm glad about.

Out of this, who knows, I might become Tom's favorite musician of 2011 ;)

The same shit happens to me anytime i friend a newgrounds non musician. These fucking kids have NO LIFE, and nothing better to do on the computer than either spam all day or irritate the shit out of people. Same thing goes for the stickam chat. there are like three users on there that as soon as i come into the room they just keep private messaging me over and over and over and get really pissed and say the dumbest shit when i dont respond to them. I had to block 7 people from facebook....all newgrounds users.

I really hate children and the retarded oxygen wasters on this website

NG kids
Hey now that im reading all this. I sometimes get PM's from these kids asking me how to make songs like me real quick.
I even once got a PM from a dude who asked how to become good at FLstudio in a short amount of time!

So as asual i always awnser by saying it takes years to actually become good at Flstudio. Like knowing music theory, know the basics in using Flstudio itself and such.

I never get a PM back saying thank you for your time..... :(

So I was wondering.

I did an orchestral arrangement of a relatively obscure VG song.

Should I put it in VGM or Classical?

Don't let them know though... Theres this 15 year old girl from the place I work at who recently started texting me... And pretty much the only thing she talks about is smoking weed, like she'll text me to let me know she's about to smoke.

It's like good for fucking you, stupid head.

derp

from a musicians perspective i find that weed makes it hard for me to be rhythmic, but the melodies that i come up with are wonderful.

I found this out by smoking a grip before going to a big jam, and i started on the congas....but i was apperently playing off a bit, so i switched to piano and i was doing some sick ass solos playin 4s

for composition....it makes grunt work like simple automations fun...but my projects always get messy when im baked.

overall positive things for musicians, but theres negatives toooo

I want marijuana to be legalized so I wouldn't hear morons talk about getting high all the time.

"Hey bro wanna smoke?"

"No"

"Why not?"

"Because I'm not in seventh grade and I have things to do"

I see pot as an enhancer. if you are a lazy loser, the pot is merely going to keep you doing the same thing.

If you like to use pot to help you get into the musical zone and focus, it will enhance that too.

From what I've seen, getting baked is conducive to being nearly completely useless to do much else besides sitting and feeling good about things. You don't see a whole lot of stoners getting "Employee of the Month" for a reason.

pffft, 90% of the time there is no distinction as to whether or not a man smoke marijuana, so those employees of the month that you think arent stoners might just actually be...

who says you have to get baked? marijuana is one of the easiest drugs to use responsibly. You don't need to smoke four bowls of dank and get super ripped and stoned.

One or two hits, and see how that works.

The slight buzz is usually enough to pop into creative mode without being in the slightest too encumbered and confused and forgetful to actually do anything.

pot is less addictive than caffeine. it is very very easy to stop wherever you are comfortable

Kind of an old topic that goes no-where. Tends to light up into a flame war.

Everyone has got their own response, and I think the individuality of it makes comments on it as an inhibitor/enhancer remote on the whole.
