Anything thought-provoking and unique is pretty cool. Right now I'm reading this fiction anthology by a huge group of writers and webcomic artists.

8bit sillyness

First, let me preface that I focused my entire Halloween DJ set around 8 bit/VG/chiptune influences. So I'm obviously a fan of the genre.

However, saying 8-bit is superior to high fidelity instrumentation is a ridiculous statement to make. By the very distinction of the two, 8-bit isn't capable of making all the sounds.. well.. everything that isn't 8-bit can make. If you want to make 8-bit sounding tracks with a full out synthesizer/DAW/etc however, you can with the right effects.

So it just doesn't make sense... if you follow what I'm saying.

On a side note... nice track Sine! Did you just insta-spawn that tune lol?

Reading

Is a very uncommon thing in my daily routine anymore... aside from reports for work, and random web browsing. Seems like I haven't picked up a book in ages.

Up and coming

In case anyone missed the memo... Cornandbeans... aka Space Laces seems to be going places quick. The fact that he already has a track in the Beatport Top 100 Electro House chart with only his second release definitely says something. =D

On that note.. any other current/former NG peeps releasing tracks on there? It'd be cool to get a list going somewhere of who all from here is signed to whatever labels and/or making major releases.

Machine of Death: A Collection of Stories About People Who Know How They Will Die

That looks pretty cool. If i had the money i would sure as heck buy this book. Maybe next month, maybe.
But i am more of a satire type when it comes to books like this one
The Alphabet of Manliness

Mainly i read comics more then books, its just more fun to read. You can get easly sucked into the story. Since its a comic you get to see much more cleary whats going even in the smallest detail.
One of my number one comics actually a Graphic Novel is A contract with God.
It has more of adult theme and is based on true stories of the average jewish people. You can really see that since alot of the stories have a greek tragedy. A good read indeed in my opinion.

Movies

I haven't really watched any new movies lately. I have, however, watched 'The fifth element', as recommended by loans. Quite a good sci-fi one.

Science-fiction

I've been reading a lot of it lately, and there's a weird thing about, of which I'm not sure that just happens to me. When looking at those disputes at the world, like N-Korea & S-Korea now, I just get the feeling they're so stupid, when you put it all in perspective against that giant universe out there.

If the people who cause such disputes were given some perspective; an idea of how little they are compared to all that's out there, wouldn't they be embarrassed?

Drunk Posts

It's always puzzled me how drunk people can even make it to the computer to post drunk posts. Let alone turn it on, start up the internet, log in, navigate to the forum and thread, and press the post button when their done. I guess I'll never know... Or at least I don't want to.

Actually, there's a few artists from Ammunition recordings who were recently signed that were on NG at one point or another.

Para (Originally Koriigahn) just released his EP "Fade to Grey" on Nov. 22nd.

Landscapers (NG Account) has also recently released his debut EP "Take Flight".

Centra's (Originally AlexCo & Sp1r1t) "Skyline" EP is also forthcoming on Ammo.

All very unique artists, worth checking out for sure.

Awesome!

I'm definitely familiar with Para/Korii... didn't know he'd gotten around to releasing an EP and such though, that's good to hear.

Also very familiar with Sp1rit, and somewhat with AlexCo... that'll be something to look forward to.

I've never heard of Landscapers before, I'll have to check that EP as well.

Maybe we can get a master thread going at some point to track all the major label releases that former NG peeps produce with links out to the other sites and such. That'd be a handy thing to keep track of it all.

Check out Flight of the Condor from the EP man. It's a pretty out there track. He's also done some great ambient/IDM sorta' stuff on the side which is worth a listen.

Anyone watched Repo Men? I watched it the other night and thought it was pretty sick.

because it prohibits life - the same reason they want no sex until marriage - god says "br fruitful and multiply" - to the church - condoms prohibit this.

Hey Chron, i thought you might find this funny: my stepfather thinks practicing homosexuality is a sin :')
He says that he has nothing against homosexuals, but when homosexuals practice homosexuality they aren't procreating and thus sinning. Yes, he actually thinks that.

he must think that those that have sex before marriage, or for pleasure are sinenrs are as well then.

also telling him that "persecuting others for righteousness sake" is also considered a sin by jesus.

"Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in the heavens."

a polite way of telling him to fuck off basically.

He thinks that when you have found a partner that you might marry, you should have sex (with condom, yes) to see if you fit each other sexually.

People's personal religous opinions have had huge impact on my life, because i was raised in a strict christian community. Fortunately i broke out of that and i'm much more openminded now. I think i'm agnostic now. But i don't know. Officialy i am still a christian and shit will probably hit the fan when i tell my mother or stepfather how i think about life/god.

noone has the right to tell you how to live your life - if they do they themselves are sinners. Don't worry about it and live it believing something up there might exist and that's pretty much it - that's how I live my life - I am much happier as a result.

My parents live the same way.

at least with chrome you can get the progress as a percentage in the bottom left corner, which'll tell you if it's actually working or if it dropped out which is most likely the case for you

That's how i live my life too and i won't change that either. My point was that my mother and stepfather have a totally different view on life than me.
I had a discussion with my mother once (i can't have a proper discussion with my stepdad). It was about if i could live with a girl who didn't believe in God. I think i could and she think i couldn't. But that's a totally different subject :p
