This would be true, but I immediately followed it with an explanation as to why this behavior is logically inconsistent with the purpose of genre, and therefore objectively wrong.

I've never had that happen before.

Your lucky. I recall an incident on NG here where someone told me those exact words, as best I can remember. At this point though, it is lost to the annals of time, so it might have been on MSN or something.

The point I was making about art was that genre IS a wishy-washy thing, because music in general cannot be rigidly defined. There are certain recognizable tropes, and then there's quite a bit of legroom for you to argue about which song belongs where. The problem is when people start trying to set out hard and fast rules about genres, and this is what I am complaining about. I have repeatedly had people argue on youtube about whether my songs are techno or trance, and some crazy guy is now running around insisting I have invented "Techrance" which is honestly just embarrassing. I just classify the song as either trance or techno depending on which one its closest too. If you complain about that like the guy insisting that my Soar song is too fast to be considered trance, it's just stupid. That's what I'm complaining about.

All my recent stuff is misc, prior I got told to use misc or a different genre on everything I submitted. :P

All fair points, I'm glad you brought it up cause I feel like I've had an interesting awakening by applying feminist theories to a predominantly male based of interaction on the internet. It all oddly applies, E-peens and all.

Strange how newer dubstep pieces are not Dub-y or step-ish?

BTW: Does anyone know how to pull off a Dub-bass (not dubstep) using VSTs or dropped guitar? ive been trying to look it up online but google seems to belive that dub=dubstep.

Hey hey, I don't get offended when people get genres wrong seeing as how artists don't have the ability to accurately define what they're making. Newgrounds has only a handful of genres and it kind of annoys me a bit when I can't accurately place my Goa Breakbeat Nuero Funk Fusion Jazz Ensamble with all the other Goa Breakbeat Nuero Funk Fusion Jazz Ensamble musics. Seriosuly Tom Fulp, let's see some variety in the categories.

why is there a brit pop genre option but no j pop? lawl.

Do you like BEATBOX?

What is Brit Pop anyway? And what the hell is J Pop?

Also, I just got scouted by a German label. Whenever they don't have any releases planned, chances are they'll hit me up for a release on Beatport. Yay :)

What in the fuck? I just wrote the base outline for a song fairly quickly.

This is not normal and I'm loving it. I was just laying down and the next thing I knew I had this song in my head that went with a chorus I came up with months ago. I jumped up and opened up TuxGuitar and proceeded in my badassery, all the way to the end of the song.

So now I gotta do bass, drums, lyrics... Man, damn.

I love it when that happens. Usually my ideas come flying at me in the worst places, far away from my computer and by the time I get to my guitar, I forgot the fucking thing. For some reason when I actually have my guitar in hand, nothing comes to me.

I found that a voice recorder is very handy for this situation, I hum the idea into it and when I get home play it back and the idea usually comes back to me.

Also, Tuxguitar, ew. Upgrade to guitar pro man.

Shit, you reminded me of the fact that a very cool melody popped into my head a few hours ago, and that I've forgotten it now. :(
So basically, I forgot that I forgot that I ad a cool melody in mind?

my brain is full of fuck

Now you wait for the pain to start in your abdomen, it will feel like one of those nasty paper-cuts you sometimes get.
If you can ignore the incredible and mind-numbing paint you might notice a sudden-light headedness, this is normal, now, try to control your breathing, you dont want to pass away that fast now, do you?
If the mind was able to see past the pain you would have felt slightly hungry at this point considering your stomach just ruptured, but of course, any base-based chem does create huge amounts of scarring so your throat must be as sealed as a virgins bum as well, so that might be the last of your worries.

This is where your mind starts to slip away into "darkness", or as new-age assholes call it: "a diffrent state of mind", this is when you stop panicking and accept your death as inevitable and normal, just like reading the sunday paper while on the subway on your way to work.
Only that this subway wont leave you at your dead-end job.

After that... well... i dont think anybody still alive knows.

So... any last ords?

When the title said "funny" I was expecting it to be "funny" but it wasn't "funny".

Also, just popped a new battery into my active pup (if you don't know what that is, kindly drink some Drano) and it sounds WIIIICCCKKKEEEDDD. Best $200 bucks I ever spent.

Most people don't know what a pickup is period.

I have an active emg-85 in the bridge with anico-V (whatever's stock on my guitar) in the neck.

Running passive and active is kinda a hassle to pull off, that's what the guy at the guitar shop who installed it for me said.
