Both of them aren't psycho. One of them has a more happy and animated personality, but the other one is more chilled (the one I befriended). Hmm...

I'm thinking of moving somewhere in the next year based on a few principals:

1: Can I collaborate musically with people/people I know?
2: Are there jobs?
3: Is there affordable rent?

Music is the key.

Springfield, MO!

We haz:
3. Really low cost of living. Srsly, you can rent a decent sized three bedroom house for $600-$750 a month. (A two or three bedroom apartment... anywhere from $250-$400)

2. Jobs are hit and miss, but if you don't mind doing tech support or something like that, I have friends that make bank at a local place that does chat-based support in a center... and they seem to be hiring all the time.

1. Besides having awesome people like myself around... there is a booming local music scene with a variety of instrumentalists and genres represented. We've built up a decent sized rave scene (with a variety of EDM), but there are plenty into rock, indie, hip hop, jam, bluegrass, etc. bands in the area. Just about anything you could think of is well represented. I also am well-connected with several venues in the area... so finding a place to do a gig is extremely easy.

Plus, we are pretty centrally located between St. Louis, Kansas City, Tulsa, Little Rock... you can get to several major cities with a few hours worth of driving. And our airport services a ton of areas as well, with some bargain airlines that will fly you across the country for pretty cheap. (I've done round trips to Tampa, FL and back for around $100)

And on the sex vs gender note...

There are several sites/tests out there (google COGIATI) that attempt to figure out the brain sex (more so the gender) of the user. Many sites will tell you that these are flawed, for various reasons: One TS site's take on the COGIATI, but even still I think they are potentially useful for the people out there that are questioning their sex vs gender.

Personally, I've always had a pretty strong sex vs gender conflict in that I've never been able to really associate strongly as a "male". Mind you, I still like a lot of the same activities... but I'm not all that comfortable with the form I was born with.

So after researching the stuff for years and years online on my own... I finally got off my ass a few months ago and scheduled an appointment with a therapist based out of KC that does therapy in office, and via Skype. (Which made her ideal, in that I could make the drive if I wanted to... but I could also just have a therapy session in my own bedroom)

Fast forward a few months to now... I'm at the point where not only have I been diagnosed as a transsexual... (turns out denying something for years doesn't make it go away)... but now I'm cleared for hormones as soon as I get around to scheduling an appt with an endocrine doc.

Soooo yeh. If it actually is something that is bothering you, there are definitely available resources out there... but I would definitely not base my identity entirely off of what an online quiz told me. :D

Oh, trust me, this wouldn't be the first time I've been rejected. I'm not affected by that anymore. I'm just shy and socially awkward, and I figured a note would be the best way to sort of avoid those issues: I can hold a conversation with a girl when I get into one, and I'm charming and can make her laugh, but starting the conversation is really, really difficult for me.

Or maybe just get to know her better in the first place.

I would, but that's not really plausible. This is the only class I'll likely ever see her in (because I'm in a specialized major with only about 50 other students, and this class is required for all arts majors), and we're already now in Week 7 out of 10. And dammit she always hangs out in a group with other girls. (I HATE how they do that.)

And if relationship problems keep popping in this place...guh...I am very close to making a song about it, using vocals samples from Romeo and Juliet or something...

Bah, the General forum isn't much use. I feel comfortable enough with the Audio Forum regulars to talk about this kind of stuff... because I sure as hell aren't going to talk to my family about it (they'd mock me), my college friends (many of them are girls who... ah... 'friend zoned' me), or my closest friends (from high school, because they are on the other side of the US so its hard to keep in contact).

Anyway this is sort of audio related, because if she said 'yes,' I'd be happy enough to write a happy piece of music. And dammit, it would be nice for me to write something happy for once.

Sound Company Schemes

Anyone else notice how gay different sound companies are? Digidesign and Sound Devices for example. They both make products with connectors (like for audio cables and power adapters) that have a connector that THEY FUCKING MADE UP. That way nobody else makes the shit and they can charge out the ass. Take for example an AC to DC converter for a SD mixer: Normal AC adapter price = ~10USD, their "4-pin Hirose" AC adapter = 82USD.

We should form a group to counteract this monopolistic monetary terrorism!

It's because you're 18 that she's being overly protective.

Also:
I love it when someone tells me I don't text or hang out with them often enough, then when I text/call them to hang out (Numerous times) they ignore me. Just maybe there's a reason I don't text them very often?

Googling myself...
...what?

So today I found out that if you type "music box waltz" into Google, I pop up as the third search suggestion. Obviously, people don't really search for "music box waltz" very often.

And here I was absolutely positive that a music box waltz would be the very first thing on everyone's minds.

Also:
Question

How hard do you guys think it would be to incorporate shifting (As in changing the shape in which the LEDs light) LEDs as well as a sound sensitive light panel onto a stuffed animal? (Before you sic Green Peace on me, yes, I mean the toys, not the "once alive ones".)
And yes, it's a serious question. I'd tell you what it's for, but that'd spoil the surprise.

The first time I heard about that was when a guy slowed down a Justin Beiber song 800%. It sounded like I was in heaven.

How hard? It depends on how many colours, which shits your talkin' about, blah, blah, blah.

I'd imagine the difficulty to be moderate-hard.

Have at it. Its a fun way to change that song of yours from a year ago you hate into a warm ambient piece.
