So which player are you going to go for? RealPlayer? Quicktime? I'm not sure of others, except perhaps the dreaded iTunes :P
It may have to be iTunes but I should give Haggard's recommendation a shot.

If only because they can't spell FUBAR (Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition) properly :P

Not if our portal voters are mostly fucking retards.
Well yes, but we must live in hope. Most of the submissions under judgement got a big fat 0 from me this morning.
To tell you the truth, hope just declines around here. Sad, really.

No! We shall not abandon hope!

Charity, maybe, but not hope!

Yep, he's trusted me to get those deposits. Although I'm not 100%, it's better that than not getting any deposits at all. He's not all that fussed about getting every single deposit marked down.
That was like the arrangement that I had with schneelocke. Now there's a user that I miss having around here.
And yet s/he has missed plenty?

Hence why it was had. Claimed the account back and I've not been asked to take over depositing again :(

Too bad, no extra supporter money for them.
I'm tempted to say "I'll pay double if he doesn't put Dragon Porn on the front page."
I'll pay triple for dragon porn on front page!

Ah, so now we have an auction? Right, the bid is with the big, scary blue dragon at $75!

Level 27 achieved! I have to admit that it isn't my favourite levels, the current halloween version is probably one of the worst icons and in my opinion the normal one isn't much better. My only consolation is that if they do Christmas icons this year then I'll only have to put up with the normal icon for around a month.

If you weren't asked, then it's not your fault. For Andersson, the deposit is ongoing for as long as I'm around here.

As if I've not got enough on my plate, you want me to edit Wiki now, as well? *grumbles*

You don't even have to sign up to edit it. At least, most of the time you don't have to sign up. :P

I don't know. I could listen to those songs every day without growing tired of them.
Beast hasn't had that effect on me yet, but Run To The Hills has left me a little jaded. I'll recover.
Run tooooooo the hiiillllsss.......
Run fo-or your li-ii-ife!

Seriously, can't we do The Trooper, or The Wicker Man?

But Bruce wears Spandex in the video for The Trooper. And the rest of the band does, too.

Well, it gets better once you begin to comprehend the lyrics. Not that hard for an native english speaker, but for me, it was pretty cool to actually be able to understand, what Bruce is singing about.
I can understand that some of their tracks are more difficult. Like Mariner, for example.

Sometimes, I don't even understand german lyrics. So it's no surprise that I don't understand lyrics in a foreign languae. Especially when they make use of figurative language or they use references that I never heard of before.

"Challenge accepted"?
Hell, I've got to get a studio now...
There's only one way to do that right... do you have the coconuts ready? Great!
CHAAAAARGEEEEEE!

Wow, I never thought there are people who are actually using that thing.
My friend uses it as well...

FAIL! is all I can say to this.

For music, I recommend foobar2000 (THE best audio player out there, and one reason why some people don't switch over to Linux, haha). For videos, there's VLC Media Player.
There's Windows Media Centre for videos anyway so WMP is redundant there. As for foobar, I keep hearing about it so more and more I may need to consider it. Supposedly it's good with iPod scrobbles for Last.fm as well.

Well, you propably have to download some plugins but with Columns UI you can edit the layout yourself. Plus, there's a plugin for tagging MP3 files via Discogs.

Those days were more fun but at least now I get closer and closer to Coop with the times we level up. When Coop gets to level up, it will only be 28 days so that is pretty close.
And it was just the right time for me to level up. I don't like the Box that much that comes with this level. So now I have the Halloween icon for a few days, and I don't have to bother with that ? for so long. ^^
The box is actually decent IMO. I always like a sense of mystery.

The Necronomicon and the Angry Face staff are so much better.

I like how I have a big achievement just before my next level up.
I think my next big achievement will be better. :P
Better than mine? Fuck that!

I have a pretty cool one coming up in 7 days.

That's if I'm not lazy, you know?
So, it will be... never?
I guess so. Keep in mind that on Wednesdays and Saturdays I'm actually spending less and less time at home. Hell, I'm doing this post at 2 in the morning. That's a new sign of laziness for me. :P

I hate to say it, but you really need a job. :P

At least you had a good song then.
In 1981, Metallica was founded. TAKE THAT, SUCKERS! :P
In 1990, Rust in Peace and Painkiller were released. Opeth was formed then as well.

That's awesome as well.

Do not confuse foobar with FUBAR. :P

Yes, the discogs plugin is just awesome. All your MP3s are tagged in no time. Well, actually, it still takes a lot of time, but it sure is a lot faster than tagging them all by hand. Plus, you can also download the covers from discogs with this plugin. Amazing.

Run fo-or your li-ii-ife!

Seriously, can't we do The Trooper, or The Wicker Man?
But Bruce wears Spandex in the video for The Trooper. And the rest of the band does, too.
So? What about Wicker Man, then? I hear no objections, so far.
I don't know the song too well. Haven't heard much of Brave New World so far. But at least I didn't see any spandex in the video.

Dance of Death? That's a classy album, how about that one?

Well, it gets better once you begin to comprehend the lyrics. Not that hard for an native english speaker, but for me, it was pretty cool to actually be able to understand, what Bruce is singing about.
I can understand that some of their tracks are more difficult. Like Mariner, for example.
Sometimes, I don't even understand german lyrics. So it's no surprise that I don't understand lyrics in a foreign languae. Especially when they make use of figurative language or they use references that I never heard of before.
The only German songs I've tried to sing are Hier Kommt Alex, by Die Toten Hosen, one verse of 99 Red Balloons, by Goldfinger and Waidmann's Heil, by Rammstein. They are listed in order of ease of comprehension.
Descending or ascending order?

Hier Kommt Alex was easier, though 99 Red Balloons was more difficult, because you're singing in English, then have to consciously switch to German, which I found difficult. Rammstein was just a clusterfuck for me.

There's only one way to do that right... do you have the coconuts ready? Great!
CHAAAAARGEEEEEE!

Oops, I meant four of course. #3 has been submitted to newgrounds already.

Where else can you come up with the name foobar from?

Or maybe it's just a cool name.

Too late for that. :P
Then you're not looking in my direction! I'm a very positive person!

Hope abandoned long ago; cannot return.

If you weren't asked, then it's not your fault. For Andersson, the deposit is ongoing for as long as I'm around here.
I really should speak to him again at some point.

Best contact I can get with him is on Facebook. I'd love it if he made it to the next big NG meet (by that, I mean the one like 2009's event) but it's hard to say when the next UK meet will do something like that again.

Heh, I know some of those people with questionable taste in music.

But are they furries? Said friend is that as well so you wonder how he's accepted at times. :P

Good, so I don't get some track tags wrong because of some retard in this world.
Yes, the discogs plugin is just awesome. All your MP3s are tagged in no time. Well, actually, it still takes a lot of time, but it sure is a lot faster than tagging them all by hand. Plus, you can also download the covers from discogs with this plugin. Amazing.

That helps a lot. WMP sounds so shite now.

Nah, the angry face staff is a bit goofy.
But it has the angry face!

Still goofy looking for me. I saw the 2012 redesign before it was launched and I recommended to JohnnyUtah to change it.

I expect it to be good.
Well, it has nothing to do with 7's, but with 42 in some way...

Keep going....

But I was at least outside the house. That's good enough, right?
Well, it's a start.

And I was out partying until 6 in the morning because that's how late a Halloween party was running for. So when I got back my mum was getting ready for work.

It's not official yet until Bahamuts next list but I checked the other profiles above me and I have passed them.

Good stuff! I shouldn't delay the Hexalist update this time.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't know much of the albums between Fear of the Dark and The Final Frontier.

Hey, I switch between languages all the time. You get used to it. Hier kommt Alex makes use of the "dialect" spoken in the Clockwork Orange, so maybe that makes things a bit easier. Like "roboten" isn't a real word, but it has the meaning of "going to work and do your stuff, like a robot".

I don't like Rammstein too much (they just fucking suck, to kind of quote AVGN here), but I just read through the lyrics of Waidmanns Heil. And yes, I can understand why that must confuse you. Words like "Muendungsenergie" or "Fingeraal" are very figurative and you wouldn't find them in any dictionary.

I've met some very weird people in my life, but I don't think I've ever met a furry... but hey, "Jedem Tierchen sein Plaesierchen" as we say in Germany. Let's see if you can figure out what that means. ;)

If anything, he should've changed that Shark with a laser beam on his head. But to say the truth: That icon really has grown on me since the redesign.

I expect it to be good.

You will know in 5 days.

Yeah, that's always some weird mixture between "nice" and "awkward".

Start the day off with a B/P milestone, why not?

111,000 B/P

This means that the next one is only a few days away :)

Do you know any from Final Frontier, or were those terms inclusive?

I should study more for songs I sing.

Words like "Muendungsenergie" or "Fingeraal" are very figurative and you wouldn't find them in any dictionary.

When they fly past you on the Guitar Hero screen and you just mumble in a vague tune it sounds awful.
