NO POWER.

You've had no power for 24 hours, yet you're on the internet... is this the Twilight Zone?

We're spending the evening at a relative's house. If we still have no power over the next day, I'm going to be crashing at my friend's houses later.

Love Can Be Bullshit

I met a girl. We fell in love. I never have felt this attached to anyone, ever. She tells me she has a boyfriend. He is 15. They talk twice a month. She cares for him "deeply". They don't do anything sexual. I think she needs to be shown true love. I bring her into my arms and my life. I take her places. I make her music. We play the piano together. I take nude photographs of her for artistic expresional purposes. We fall deeper in love. I ask if she wants to be my girlfriend. She says she already has a boyfriend. We make out and have extreme sexual cuddle sessions, without penetration, for three weeks. I break down crying harder the I have before right in front of her. I ask her why she still wants the 15 year old over me and why we she allows me to be so romantic with her. We fight. We have sex four, extremely passionate times. I still think she wants me. She says she wants me. She goes back to the 15 year old and kiss him behind the bleachers at a football game. I tell her to fuck off. She comes back to me. We kiss again. She kisses him again. Things go in circles for about a month. Now we finally have stopped it all and she still is with him. I tell her she is extremely lucky to still have him and he deserves to know the truth. She won't ever tell him.

Great, now I don't know if I can love for a lonngggg time. Hurts like a mother fucker. Ah well. At least I can make more ambient music or some shit. Why the hell would she do that to me. Why the hell would I keep thinking she would ditch the "boyfriend". Pft. Whatever.

Sounds like you fell for a slut that likes to pretend she's loyal.

Not worth your time IMO, you can definitely do better.

Not worth my time at all :/ it just sickens me she isn't a slut, she is just plain arrogant and still acts like she is in high school. "Oh well I love him a lot so I'm gonna go back to him" well bitch then why'd you suck my dick? Damn. She doesn't deserve the kid at all even, and he will never know... which sickens me even more. She doesn't do anything but say "sorry" and acts like she won't ever do it again. Why is it so hard for me to let go? And I still love her. Why the fuck do I still love her. And she says she loves me with all her heart and bla bla bla. She isn't TRYING to be a manipulative count but I guess that is just coming naturally for her.

You will eventually get over her, and you'll realize you're better off. How do I know?

Because I've been in nearly the exact same situation. Believe me, girls like that aren't worth the effort, it's even worse if they don't realize the harm in what they're doing, like you're making her out.

Maybe one day she'll realize she's been a complete imbecile, and I guarantee she'll pay for it.

And as harsh as it may sound, if her "Boyfriend" finds out (And I can almost guarantee he will eventually), and he's got even the slightest bit of common sense, he'll dump her ass... And she'll come crying to you. Here's the harsh part... Tell her to go to hell. If she cheats on the boy she claims to love with all her heart... What do you think she'll do when you're the boy she "loves with all her heart"?

I did tell her to go to hell. She wanted me to try to be her friend and I asked her if she realized how stupid and pointless that would be. We would just go back to the same ole shit again. I try not to blow up in her face for it, even if she does deserve it, because in her mind she is just trying to love and "accidentally" fell in "love" with two guys and doesnt know what to do... but she should have never started anything with me, lmao. It just baffles me sometimes at how people can be so fucking blind. Ah well, I'm the one who fell for it. I hope she gets what she deserves, but at the same time I really only want her to realize what she did and never, ever do it again. You are suppose to learn from mistakes. I know I have. The brain is a very... interesting and psychological thing... Good to hear I'm not the only one who gets trapped in it.

There are no doubt millions of people who have been in similar situations... Myself included. What matters is how you learn from it. It's good to see you have a level head about it, because I've heard others in similar situations decide the person deserved a second chance...

Know what happened? They were cheated on. Surprise surprise.

I dont understand why people don't research the words "dedication," "passion", and "mutual". Love isn't love without em, no matter how you look at it.

Relationships and Stuff

Yeah, been there done that. It's a shitty situation to be in... I deviated from the policy of not trying to fall for anyone in a relationship once (and in their case the guy was a total douche, so it was a noble cause even in a way)... but I still ended up just getting emotionally fucked over it. Then she finally broke up with him down the road... and at that point we'd basically friend-zoned each other... and are actually still good friends.

So yeah... lol

Random side note: 30 degree F temps and fishnets don't go together very well. Yay for outdoor music festivals at the end of October in the midwest!

LaForge, it is the MUSIC. 100% all the way bro. In fact, all of that stupid shit I went through pays off in the end because I can make it into music. Music is the #1 stress reliever for me, and I express every feeling and experience into an atmospheric euphoria known as ambient. That's why I love music. It is the best way to express myself. Better to express myself through music than through that shitty relationship, that's for sure.

Relationships

The last girlfriend I had was about a year and a half ago, but we broke up after a few weeks because it didn't work out (she lives 200 miles away derp). We still see each other sometimes though.

You're 16, you haven't even had a real relationship yet.

Yeah well thats one time. I was particularly known in high school for being shitty with women despite being prettty sexy, and now that I'm a musician I am no longer even remotely sexy at alll but my luck with the ladies is through the roof. I'm actually having to deny women on occasion. There's something about being a musician that just makes chicks want you.

Use that sex aura and feed! Cuz youre a musician damnit!

A documentary about music that I saw a few weeks ago verifies this, if it makes any of you feel any better :P.

Not too sure about your mic setup for the grand. It's certainly fine to do it with one mic, but I'd recommend at least two. Either one over the bass strings (further away from the player) and one over the higher strings, or even one over the piano and one actually under it, facing upwards. The latter gives you some really nice resonant bass to add to your mix later.

Also, depending on what kind of location you're recording in, you might want to consider setting up some room mics to capture the ambience - especially if you're recording in a nice hall: just having the option to mix in some more air later can be nice.

recording tips

I realize I could get better quality with stereo pair on the piano and room mics and two extra mics so that I could mic each of the 4 sections of the choir, but I only have 3 mics total as an option because my mixer only has 3 channels for input. Probably should have mentioned that
