Any similar experiences, or reasoning behind what I'll call a dampened hearing phenomena?

Sometimes I'd put on some dnb in the morning after getting my waking up cup of coffee. I'd hastily throw together a playlist and then when it plays raise an eyebrow due to the fact it seems to be playing at 80% of the speed. Always wondered how that's possible, but I actually feel like tapping the rhythm in the morning is slower sometimes. Also most music sounds a little louder in the morning to me, but that's probably due to the overall sound flying around. Maybe it was a noisy day in general and aaaall the sounds from the world around you were 5 db higher than normal. Just like daytime 'quiet' is actually a lot louder than nighttime 'quiet'. Get what I mean?

Something similar happened to me before. A few months ago I took part in a basketball match and naturally when I was done, I was tired and sweaty.

I went to listen to some music on my mobile, and when I was hearing, I noticed that the songs sounded MUCH slower than I was used to them, and every song seemed too slow and boring. Even when I played some 170 BPM DnB I was still thinking it was far too slow. I even went and checked to see if there was some weird setting which slowed down the tempo of all the songs on my mobile, which proved unsuccessful.

After a lot of time wondering why I was hearing everything at such a slow tempo, I decided that it was my brain playing tricks on me because I was used to the fast pace of a basketball match and began thinking everything else I heard was too slow...

Wow, it's been a long time since you posted something NOT about MATSEC :P
It's probably just the adrenaline rush, since you are going faster than a particular tempo, you await something equal to that tempo.

Shirts n' Stuff

My birthday's coming up soon and I'm really looking forward to buy some stuff, T-Shirts, a pair of Wayfarer sunglasses, you know the drill.

Could someone recommend me some cool T-shirts/Wayfarers and possibly some websites where to buy 'em at?

There must be some sort of scientific explanation for this effect, or a study of some kind. It makes me wonder if time progresses slightly slower for those who are processing alot of information quickly in a short span of time. (probably not) But if fast music feels slower then shouldnt everything feel slightly slower?

Same thing happens to me if I listen to DnB a lot then decide to listen to house or somethin. The house music seeems super slow

Oh also the vibration of my BX5As somehow turns up the volume knob on the back of my left speaker so I have to readjust the levels with a dB meter every few weeks. Super lame, but at least its not just my brain tricking me

Ever play guitar hero on hyper speed for a long time then go to regular speed?

Feels like expert songs move at 1 inch an hour.

Pereption of speed is relative as a mofo.

I finished my SATs today. I feel like I did the English comprehension section a lot better than the maths, because it is difficult for me to apply maths from just word problems. I exceed with equations and theories, but the comprehension problems is too much.

Hopefully I can get into an engineering college even though I sucked at the math section.

Mothers Day

So, today is Mothers day... and I completely forgot.. But as luck would have it... I spent 12 hours last night working on a cover of a song my mom really seemed to enjoy... So in a way, I saved myself without even knowing it... So since I don't have time to go out and buy a gift, I'm plopping a couple of my newer songs (One she's heard, one she hasn't... cause I just did it) onto a CD and using that as a gift.

Last year I wrote her a song specifically for mothers day... vocals and all... She cried like a baby for like an hour after hearing it, and gave me a hug that nearly broke my back... While this probably won't have the same effect as a custom written song just for today... It should be better than nothing, right?

Hip-Hop

I just found some well good hip-hip.

Mothers Day

I forgot about it, oh well. I personally don't celebrate Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Valentines Day, etc. They are just random days to make someone feel special when you can do that any day.

The only real thing I have against mothers day is that it is another materialistic "holiday". Just like valentines day... Except valentines day comes with the added benefit of making anyone who's not in a relationship feel like shit.

Mother's Day

My mom had a rant today about how much she hated the shallowness of most modern holidays. Including Mother's Day. This was during our dinner out at a nice restaurant. Which I was paying for.

Awkward, or awesome?

Name Change

Not that any of you will really care, but this is the account of the former crapatflash. I got a name change cause I was sick of the old one. Props to Wade for the awesomely-super-speedy respsonse (as in, I went to change my forum sig as soon as I PM'd him and I was promptly logged out with a new username), I was expecting a huge waiting period.

I have considerd it. But if i suddenly change my name people might get all confused. My new name might get suspected for stealing music and such. Plus my user name is in a xbox game. So im pretty much stuck with it.

I sent a PM to Mike to fix my username, and it took him one day to do it. He is more reliable to respond than Wade or Tom.

Originally I had 'wildekeizer', but now it is 'WildeKeizer'. It looks better.

Mother's Day

I always write a song/poem when it's my mum's birthday or mother's day (and the same with my dad) because I'm crap at buying anything which isn't for me, but this time I didn't manage to because of exams. Ah well...

Birthdays

Made you a birthday thread EricFreeman ;D.

Also, it's my brother's birthday today and it'll be mine on the 15th. It's also one of my friends' birthday on the 14th and my grandma's on the 18th...

Your username isn't that bad. At least you're not stuck with 'Supersteph54'. Not only is it childish, but 'Steph' can easily stand for 'Stephanie' even though my name is 'Stephan'...

And it has a number in it. A NUMBER. D:
