Ok, so I just finished running a thread idea by jarrydn that I had a while back and would love to try... so now I'm gonna get your guys opinions on it to see if there's enough interest for it to be worth posting.

So, the general idea is based around "Betcha Can't Play This" (Example) with a few tweaks.

Absolutely! I've been practicing so much lately, this would just give me even more of a reason to get better! I'm in when and if you ever start it.

I'll definitely be doing it, maybe within the next week or so. I wanna spend a fair amount of time on the opening post so that it's as clear cut as possible so it doesn't end up being a giant clusterfuck of people just submitting things like some sort of ad thread.

Once I do up a draft, I'll probably send it out to a couple people to look it over and proof read and point out anything that needs changing, then post it up shortly after that.

Redesign

Oh damn, only 24 hours to go. I am freaking excited, yet there's some sadness in me. I've been here since 2008 and this design was already around, and now, saying goodbye and moving on is kind of odd.

Yeah, I know, whining about a redesign is dumb, but I will miss this old one.

Redesign

I'm mostly curious whether they'll have taken advantage of all the fancy new HTML5 stuff that's been introduced to the web since the last redesign. Should be interesting.

It'll probably be a pretty shocking change, but I'm sure we'll all get over it in some time.

I hear the Audio portal is getting tits, by rating 5 on every song you have a chance of perky tits popping up where the visualizer is located

I heard that the Audio Portal is getting replaced by the Audio Portlulz, where you can only upload recordings of yourself laughing like a maniac.

Hi, I haven't really been keeping up with the redesign news (I actually had no idea about it until yesterday :o yeah I'm not too frequent on NG anymore...), but what's changing to the audio portal? I have some musics I've made now but I never wanted to submit to NG (not because of the free downloads, I'm cool with that) because we can't control the ID3 tagging of the song once it's downloaded. What's with that? I don't want something I created to be tagged with my NG username and with (ID:69696969) attached to each song.

So, just wondering, that was always a pet peeve of mine about the Audio Portal

Trying to discuss drugs intelligently

So I just laid out a huge description of drugs and their relation to culture and how and why people strive to mental intoxication and how enriching it can be. To which the responses were "I like whiskey!" and "OMG drunk people suck."

Gotta love people's stupidity.

It was a reply to someones facebook status that said: "Why do people feel the need to get drunk almost every weekend?? It's ridiculous!!"

To which I replied:
"Mental intoxication is a desire built into our psyche by thousands of years of culture. The ability to change our mental chemistry and be as if we were something other than what we are is actually rather fascinating. The commercial and modern degradation of our possibilities with this has limited most people to the use of only alcohol to achieve this, but it is still understandable to want to consistently experiment with the idea. Alcohol use, while being a lame drug in comparison to the many other more enriching substances, dates all the way back to ancient egyptians. Either way it's easy to understand logically and hard to be too upset when people get a little excited and over-do it. I know that through my own drug experimentation I became a much more loving and spiritual person because I was able to feel and see things I used to not be able to. Although I suppose what you're talking about is abuse. Which is more so when a weak minded person makes a false connection between a substance and an ability to achieve an emotion. But the substances should only be viewed as insight to a certain emotion or thought, not the actual way to achieve it."

TLDR; Drugs are good mmmmkay

Redesign

I can't wait! Definitely excited to see what happens with the audio portal.

My set went well the other night... although unfortunately we had a bad turnout overall at the show. Meh, you win some... you lose some. I'll probably upload the set whenever I get the chance though.
