Hey there. I'm dropping by for both reasons (the achievement type AND the dropping in on teh peops type)... so... good timing, I guess! Seems a little slow around here today... and uh... I have...
...
107 pages since my last catch-up. Hmmm. Yes. This should be interesting. O_o

So, the 2nd thing (socialisin') will have to wait for another hour or so, as I have to go pick up my better half in a half hour... in the meantime... time for the 1st thing...

ahem...

LEVEL 50, BABY!

Oh, come now. That's true and all... but not a surprise. You leveled up to level 46 back in November, whereas I've been at level 49--before today, that is--since October... there's just more time between levels the higher you go... that's one thing that hasn't changed from ye olde pre-NG-redesign 30-level system that we both knew and loved so well, eh?

I'd rather look on the bright side: I'm one less level away from the 2nd best sword (55) and the 3rd best sword (51)... and ol' gfox is stuck at the 1st best sword (42 for the foreseeable future. It's all gravy, baby! Stay cool!

It's a pipedream for all of us. Even top 50 seems like one. Top 100 I know I'll reach eventually.

Anyone can retire - it happens to us all eventually. I just want to make more of a mark than I've made at the moment!

Heh, so you two got different tastes in music?

Annoyingly so, sometimes. I think that she just skips some track to spite me. The softer rock ones, like Floyd just seem to fall into the group that she skips past.

Mind you, I have even managed to get her to sing along in duet with me for Reel Big Fish's "She Has A Girlfriend Now", which is quite funny and an achievement at the same time.

And no, iTunes store doesn't have it :( Just the 5/6 minutes versions.
Well there are also other places to get music from.

Yeah, I'll have a search for it.

22,000 Medal Points

I forgot to post at 21,000 Medal Points, but that doesn't matter anymore I guess.

I told myself that the next time I leveled up or reached a milestone that I would start making lists again like I use to. So here I am and lets see if I can do it a bit longer than I did last time. I do miss this forum and I don't post here that often anymore so this is probably a good way to get back into it.

Looks like I'll have to miss making the lists on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday most of the time because on the weekends I'm either nowhere near a computer or I'm on dial up. Tuesday's will have to be a large list because of this.

So yeah, lists from me start tomorrow. How is everyone doing?

6 years old? That's quite young then. I think I really got into Pink Floyd when I turned 17 or so. Before that I never listened to them much and only knew their famous songs.
I started listening to rock in general early as well. It helped me with English and defining what songs I like nowadays. I loved Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Zeppelin, Mike Oldfield, Genesis... All the songs that my dad listens to, basically.

Well for a long time I've only been listening to U2 and some other 80's and 90's music. Only when I turned 17 or so I got into 60's and 70's classic rock stuff such as Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Doors, AC/DC etc.

I have also started to listen to David Bowie recently and while I don't like all of his music, he is a very interesting singer in my opinion. I still want to give that Ziggy Stardust album a listen someday.

Led Zeppelin I don't know much about and I'm actually a bit embarrassed there. Only songs I know are Stairway to Heaven (which I don't like) and The Immigrant Song (which I do like). I'm sure that they have more stuff that I will like, but I just haven't been arsed to listen to them yet.

A friend of mine has a Mike Oldfield CD (Tubular Bells) which I've listened to once. I kinda liked his music and I got that 'Finale' song on my MP3 =)

And as for Genesis, I'm not a big fan. But they got a few nice songs, like Salzbury Hill.

Really? I have never seen that performance, but it sounds pretty cool. Can you tell me which DVD that was?
In The Flesh, a really good DVD. It's part Pink Floyd/part Roger Waters' songs.

Oh wait, I remember a friend of mine owns that DVD. He turned it on once, but I wasn't paying attention because we were busy playing a game or something.

Anyway, I'm watching the performance right now. Great performance of the song indeed. Especially the guy who sings David Gilmours part does an excellent job if you ask me. Also I've just seen the poker part you mentioned, but unfortunately the video cuts somewhere in that part. So I didn't see the dealer vocals you were talking about and I can't find the full version either =(

Indeed and the second part does not really set the right tone for the third part. I think you'll need Don't Leave Me Now.
Agreed. Part 3 has a different... mood from the other 2 parts.

Speaking of which, have you ever watched The Wall movie?

Of course I have! As a matter of fact, I got it listed as my favorite movie of all time in my favorite movies section =) Also my girlfriend bought me the DVD a while ago, and I've watched it a couple of times since then.

So she's more of a hardrock AC/DC and Metallica kind of girl then? :p

I got a bit more lucky. My girlfriend and I have a very similar taste in music. She got me into The Beatles and I got her into some U2, Creedence and Pink Floyd. So no fighting over what songs to play.

Alternative Character Battle 2 - Battle 11: Slig vs Ecco

I decided to not bother with YouTube after the video screwing up my channel by not showing any videos at all, so instead of putting my video on there, you can see it on Blip. So far, no complaints but if I ever get a problem with them, I'll take reverend's advice and use Veoh.

Listening to:

You're right about that. Achievements for my main account are a rarity these days. These are my next four achievements to get:

1 + 2) 20,000 EXP + 4x20k (first one too)
3) 21,000 posts (This might come before 20k EXP but we'll see)
4) Level 44

And I won't get level 44 until May.

This is just another example of how Copyright is being misused nowadays... seriously, how much does a simple video where a user does a small compilation of his favorite metal intros hurt the companies? >:(

This I find annoying as well. If their copyright claims just threw ads on my video, I wouldn't complain but they took a step further. I wouldn't be surprised if I could find videos of all 10 songs I used and was able to watch them.

No, what YOU believe doesn't matter. :P
Hey, we have been over this already. -.-

I just need to remind you that my opinion is more important. :P

Not when you put Manowar and sucks monkey balls together. Also, that page mentioned AC/DC and not Manowar, lol.
Haha, yeah. I was thinking: "Well, AC/DC isn't that great, but why didn't he put Manowar there?" ^^

Because Manowar are great. I'll admit, that person shouldn't have mentioned AC/DC.

Why would Colonel talk to Soldier anyway?
Because he's a nice guy and doesn't like Mantis at all.

I thought the Colonel was a dick.

You know, that doesn't sound like a bad idea. You would think the more as a user submits the better he should get. I like this idea but it might be difficult to implement because they might break out an alt just to submit garbage.

I thought about that as well, although I didn't come up with any ideas to solve it. =/

But yeah, there are many ways to make things harder for spammers. And please, HIGHER BLAM THRESHOLD. >:(

Portal Mods. I've said that a couple of times already, along with a thousand other users.
Eh, I think the staff feels very hesitant about having users mess around with other user submitted content. They typically want all of the responsibility of deleting stuff on Wade or another Staff's shoulders in case they are wrong.

Well thought, it would be a huge responsibility to just leave the submissions in someone else's hands. But the mods could deal only with the recently submitted ones, if they're really concerned about it. Like removing file-swappers instantly, flagged submissions...

What I really think they can use is another Admin to help carry Wade's burden of dealing with stolen content and such. What's Luis really doing; let's get him to do some work. :)

Hahahhaha, I agree. He wasn't even added to the staff page yet :P

I got to know more about those bands when I was 10 or so. It was either because of my dad or because of my brother's music in the computer. And we had a new computer with internet, downloading music was still easy, so...

I have also started to listen to David Bowie recently and while I don't like all of his music, he is a very interesting singer in my opinion. I still want to give that Ziggy Stardust album a listen someday.

Ziggy Stardust is a classic. My dad has a live LP which has some song from it, it's really good.

Also, I share birthdays with Bowie. =)

Led Zeppelin I don't know much about and I'm actually a bit embarrassed there. Only songs I know are Stairway to Heaven (which I don't like) and The Immigrant Song (which I do like). I'm sure that they have more stuff that I will like, but I just haven't been arsed to listen to them yet.

You should give a listen to "Rock And Roll" and "Black Dog". They're a lot better than Stairway to Heaven.

A friend of mine has a Mike Oldfield CD (Tubular Bells) which I've listened to once. I kinda liked his music and I got that 'Finale' song on my MP3 =)

Ah, Tubular Bells is my Oldfield reference. I like his music, despite having some really long tracks. Also, I think he did the soundtrack to The Exorcist with that album.

And as for Genesis, I'm not a big fan. But they got a few nice songs, like Salzbury Hill.

Never heard that one. =P But if you are interested, try Invisible Touch, or their Live Over Europe 2007, both are great albums.

In The Flesh, a really good DVD. It's part Pink Floyd/part Roger Waters' songs.
Anyway, I'm watching the performance right now. Great performance of the song indeed. Especially the guy who sings David Gilmours part does an excellent job if you ask me.

The guy with the red guitar? He's awesome. And his technique is admirable, since he does what Hendrix did: left handed with a right handed guitar. And he sings well too.

Also I've just seen the poker part you mentioned, but unfortunately the video cuts somewhere in that part. So I didn't see the dealer vocals you were talking about and I can't find the full version either =(

Heh, I mislead you, sorry. =(

I thought the backing vocals (the girls) would say something during that part, but we can only hear the synths solo. They have a drink, pretend to play poker for a while and finish the song, right?

Speaking of which, have you ever watched The Wall movie?
Of course I have! As a matter of fact, I got it listed as my favorite movie of all time in my favorite movies section =) Also my girlfriend bought me the DVD a while ago, and I've watched it a couple of times since then.

Ah, great! It's one of my favourite movies as well, although I don't have the DVD. I really like the Comfortably Numb part, despite being a little "annoying" watching him shaving everything he has. =P

But it's an excellent movie indeed. I have to watch it again someday.

A higher blam threshold would be nice but if it was bumped up to closer to 2 or exactly at 2 then what would be the point of voting 2 on things? Sure you could vote 3, but some movies are worth that much but are still worth saving.

Well thought, it would be a huge responsibility to just leave the submissions in someone else's hands. But the mods could deal only with the recently submitted ones, if they're really concerned about it. Like removing file-swappers instantly, flagged submissions...

As far as I can tell, the Audio Mods don't delete stuff but rather pass them on to Wade and he removes it. Maybe a system like that would be reasonable to be considered or else some way to flag a submission after judgment.

Hahahhaha, I agree. He wasn't even added to the staff page yet :P

That's Stamper's lazy ass not doing anything. :P

Alright, I've just reached a new height. I am now the 22nd highest B/Per of all time. I have just this very minute passed the god among stat whores, gfoxcook for B/P, so now I'm less than 1,000 points behind #21.

Thanks Greg, I'm getting higher in the rankings :)

You need to join in our awesome conversations. :D

Yeah I probably should get involved more, lol. Problem is, between spending time at my girlfriend's place, having lectures, doing menial tasks, and spending time with friends, I don't get much real "me time" (read: Newgrounds time). So I basically just need a few more hours in the day and I'd be a happy camper.

Hey NEVR! It's been a while, come back to the lounge. Say hello every day.

I probably won't have time to REPLY to everybody in here every day, but I could drop in and say hello more often, although it would get kinda pointless after a while, lol. I just do it every now and again to remind people that I'm still in existence.

She's more like a metalhead, to be honest. Mind you, when she tries to meditate, she puts on music like Enya, so go figure :P

I got a bit more lucky. My girlfriend and I have a very similar taste in music. She got me into The Beatles and I got her into some U2, Creedence and Pink Floyd. So no fighting over what songs to play.

Yeah, I can't imagine how it would be if my girlfriend didn't share my musical preferences. I mean, of course there are bands I like she doesn't like and vice versa, but overall we both like the same music.

This I find annoying as well. If their copyright claims just threw ads on my video, I wouldn't complain but they took a step further. I wouldn't be surprised if I could find videos of all 10 songs I used and was able to watch them.

Yeah, I often come across some "copyright claim blabla" crap, but there are tons of other videos where I can watch the content just fine.

No, what YOU believe doesn't matter. :P
Hey, we have been over this already. -.-
I just need to remind you that my opinion is more important. :P

Still wrong, I see.

Not when you put Manowar and sucks monkey balls together. Also, that page mentioned AC/DC and not Manowar, lol.
Haha, yeah. I was thinking: "Well, AC/DC isn't that great, but why didn't he put Manowar there?" ^^
Because Manowar are great. I'll admit, that person shouldn't have mentioned AC/DC.

No, Manowar sucks monkey balls.

Why would Colonel talk to Soldier anyway?
Because he's a nice guy and doesn't like Mantis at all.
I thought the Colonel was a dick.

Nah, he was just forced to act like one.

Pretty good.

That's fairly easy to do since people don't B/P. I would say you would have to reach 1,000 before it becomes relevant.

Meh.

You're right about that. Achievements for my main account are a rarity these days. These are my next four achievements to get:

1 + 2) 20,000 EXP + 4x20k (first one too)
3) 21,000 posts (This might come before 20k EXP but we'll see)
4) Level 44

And I won't get level 44 until May.

Yeah, but even 20,000 Experience will still take you a month.

I got to know more about those bands when I was 10 or so. It was either because of my dad or because of my brother's music in the computer. And we had a new computer with internet, downloading music was still easy, so...

Heh, yes my dad is also mostly responsible for my knowledge of 80's music. I got to know U2 thanks to him. And downloading music is still easy, isn't it?

I have also started to listen to David Bowie recently and while I don't like all of his music, he is a very interesting singer in my opinion. I still want to give that Ziggy Stardust album a listen someday.
Ziggy Stardust is a classic. My dad has a live LP which has some song from it, it's really good.

Yeah I heard it was pretty much his best album. I don't know much about his other albums though, and I don't think my dad has any David Bowie CD's or LP's unfortunately.

Also, I share birthdays with Bowie. =)

Nice! I share birthdays with George W. Bush |= |

Led Zeppelin I don't know much about and I'm actually a bit embarrassed there. Only songs I know are Stairway to Heaven (which I don't like) and The Immigrant Song (which I do like). I'm sure that they have more stuff that I will like, but I just haven't been arsed to listen to them yet.
You should give a listen to "Rock And Roll" and "Black Dog". They're a lot better than Stairway to Heaven.

Alright, I'll give those a listen someday.

A friend of mine has a Mike Oldfield CD (Tubular Bells) which I've listened to once. I kinda liked his music and I got that 'Finale' song on my MP3 =)
Ah, Tubular Bells is my Oldfield reference. I like his music, despite having some really long tracks. Also, I think he did the soundtrack to The Exorcist with that album.

Yeah I know he did the soundtrack of The Exorcist. Although I'm not sure what that song was called.

And as for Genesis, I'm not a big fan. But they got a few nice songs, like Salzbury Hill.
Never heard that one. =P But if you are interested, try Invisible Touch, or their Live Over Europe 2007, both are great albums.

Oh wait, my bad. The song is called Solsbury Hill actually. And it was made by Peter Gabriel AFTER he left Genesis. In that case I don't know, isn't Sledgehammer one of their songs? I do like that one.

Anyway, I'm watching the performance right now. Great performance of the song indeed. Especially the guy who sings David Gilmours part does an excellent job if you ask me.
The guy with the red guitar? He's awesome. And his technique is admirable, since he does what Hendrix did: left handed with a right handed guitar. And he sings well too.

Yeah the one who sings the part at the beginning. Don't know much about guitar techniques, but indeed the singing is great.

Is he perhaps a pretty famous guitarist like Snowy White?

Also I've just seen the poker part you mentioned, but unfortunately the video cuts somewhere in that part. So I didn't see the dealer vocals you were talking about and I can't find the full version either =(
Heh, I mislead you, sorry. =(

I thought the backing vocals (the girls) would say something during that part, but we can only hear the synths solo. They have a drink, pretend to play poker for a while and finish the song, right?

Pretty much, but you do hear the dealer shout a few times. Can't hear what he's saying though.

Of course I have! As a matter of fact, I got it listed as my favorite movie of all time in my favorite movies section =) Also my girlfriend bought me the DVD a while ago, and I've watched it a couple of times since then.
Ah, great! It's one of my favourite movies as well, although I don't have the DVD. I really like the Comfortably Numb part, despite being a little "annoying" watching him shaving everything he has. =P

But it's an excellent movie indeed. I have to watch it again someday.

Hehe yeah that part is a bit awkward. But very powerful emotionally though, especially at the solo where you see his flashbacks as a kid.

I'm alright, really anxious for the full week holiday next week.

Sounds like fun. Spring break will come and go for me. I'll be applying for some summer jobs around this time and then after that break I only have the summer. I don't really consider the summer a break though as I'll be taking two online courses and working.


But... why does your sig still says Corky52? =P

1) I really love the snow
2) It started snowing really heavy where I live and it reminded me of how much I love the snow
3) I want people to remember that I use to be Corky52
4) I forgot it said Corky52 and once I realized it I didn't care because of reason three :P
