Off Topic / Re: new years resolutions?
« on: December 28, 2018, 02:39:54 AM »
last year for me it was just solely focusing on getting my stuff together. i had no car, stuff friends, and a stuff job. now i'm on my 2nd car, those stuff friends are gone, and i have a new job i actually enjoy.

this year it will be:
quit smoking


and laying off alcohol. i got severely stufffaced at the christmas party without even drinking to that level. i don't know why this seems to happen but it happens, but recently i noticed i've been drinking way too much recently and honestly it's loving boring and lame. same with cigs, i used to vape but it seemed to enable me to intake more nicotine than i should be.

i also want to go back to school at some point but with my job potentially moving me up i might not go back, we'll see.

lol

oh stuff son, too bad i'm not in that area of illinois. however i do live REALLY close to this. i was driving by it the other night and i'm like oh boy time to get cancer.

regarding the whole JB Pritzker stuff: i didn't want him at all to be governor, but i also didn't want Bruce Rauner to be either. my primary chocie, Daniel Biss, was my 100% pick for the democratic ticket. same stuff what JB wants to do (SORT OF) but he isn't a billionaire, and actually is a state senator that actually has political experience.

the fear the conservatives and i feel about JB is that he will raise the stuff out of property taxes and other stupid bullstuff taxes. hell, there was a rumor saying JB wants to tax peoples' cars by the mile. however, he also want to legalize weed in illinois, which in my own eyes could be a huge tax money maker. a stuff ton of people smoke weed around here, plus the cops don't give a forget anymore about it. hell, illinois law doesn't jail you either for possession, it's just a local ordinance ticket. medical is already legal so we'll see how it goes comes next month when JB is actually the new governor.

I'll stick with Windows until ReactOS is complete or Steam's custom WINE mod is fully functional.

WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU USE REACTOS?!?! my god. that stuff's old.

just get a VM and test out ubuntu + steam + steam play. is it glitchy? yes. does it work? yes.

i got fed up with win10 twice this year, once earlier this year after giving me a BSOD and stuffting itself, and the other time when i pressed win + tab and saw that MS is basically tracking what apps you use from them. i'm now a proud arch user :).

How to get a good windows OS:

1. Downgrade or upgrade to windows 7 8.1

If it doesn't install correctly please repeat step 1.

i fixed your quote  :cookieMonster:. 8.1 is the best if you're gonna downgrade.

It's pretty cool but it's so normal like they're just regular ass people lol. People will be like 'wow you met x person that's so cool!' and think it's crazy because they're so talented but everyone who is an artist is talented in some way. The difference in popularity between someone with 10 SoundCloud likes and Katy Perry is enormous but the difference in talent is nonexistent- everyone is talented and everyone has the potential to totally rock, and people like Dizzy and Post prove this

if you looked on royal mountain's site (their label), they're on the same label as Mac Demarco (katie and charlie met them at a show), Calpurnia (they all met and saw calpurnia play in NYC), and PUP (ditto sort of). mack's got some stuff lmao.

https://youtu.be/h4oIUHy5qSA - swim (rak session)

ok so the backstory on swim is nuts too, all because i sort of inspired it. when dizzy toured in america for the first time, they had a 3 day stay here in chicago. we all chilled n stuff, but mack recorded some of the waves sounds by loyla's campus right on the beach of lake michigan. iirc that sample is in the final mix.

this video tho is literally the space radiohead recorded "high and dry" and some adelle stuff too (i think some of 21 was recorded there?). there's some beats one radio interviews floating around i haven't seen either.

forget it im double posting.

i thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiink my copy of the vinyl comes tomorrow. i need IRL pics in this thread bc mack hasn't shown me the real thing yet.

Is this like how when you grow up your baby teeth fall out and you guys were unwoke before but you released a fire album and now your baby gravity teeth fell out and you can finally levitate to the greener pastures of stardom

that's probably how they felt when they ran into post malone! crazy story but they got filled in for osheaga, the big canadian music festival, last minute after a cancellation of another band. they played the last day, the sunday. while going around the festival grounds of course they run into post earlier before they played and he's like "whats up guys" and they said hi and walked away. after they played they were packing up and ofc post shows up again and just says, "hey, whats up" again. then he's like "y'all need help there packing up?" and charlie (their drummer) says "nah, we're good. thanks bro" and he's all like "ok then have a good drive back be safe."

honestly the weirdest texts i got in the past year when your friend is like "lmao i ran into post malone."

wtf how y'all brothers figure out how to noclip irl... That's the real accomplishment here

they taught me the ways of the one.

i'm super late to tell y'all about this  :cookieMonster:

https://www.royalmountainrecords.com/baby-teeth-dizzy

it's official. the record is out. proud of my gay boyfriend my boy on the release of the record.

there's CD's and vinyl (i got the vinyl on the way), so if you want a copy just google "dizzy baby teeth" and you'll find a copy somehow.
i bought my vinyl copy through amoeba records in california lmao

if you don't want physical media, of course it's on spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/3URbZ8wQJrvuIXW8daRhoe

there's supposed to be a tour soon, details will be posted ASAP on their facebook.

whomever gets the physical copies there's a easter egg in it  :cookie:

What happened to the naked brothers band

i was a stupid 8 year old and bought the single thinking that would help their demise, but they got my money and i feel terrible.

Why are rich people doing poor people drugs?  :cookieMonster:

dude, heroin is expensive. it starts off as a opiate addiction (any painkiller that is over the counter but these rich people can get em easily) then escalates into this. forget this drug, i almost lost a really close friend due to it earlier this year. this is just another example of the mainstream media of people (and millennials who are dumb) just brushing off heroin addiction as any other addiction. her fanbase is just like "omg, we hope you get better!!!" but any other person in the same boat will get a negative reaction.

and also, this proves that the USA is really in a huge opioid crCIA. too bad elf sessions thinks weed won't solve this one!  :cookieMonster:

lmao phineas and ferb didn't happen until 2007. it's still 2000's yes but like the show didn't really get THAT popular until i was in high school.

2000's in my eyes:

dial up sounds
slow ass internet
windows 98se/windows xp (anyone who had ME was shunned)
roller coaster tycoon was the stuff
the sims 1
playstation 2 boot up sounds
gamecube
9/11 happening (i was in kindergarten but i remember it happening on tv)
OTHER FALLOUT DUE TO 9/11: iraq. everyone being antsy about another attack. literally every other day the news was talking about some "attack"
bush being president
vp richard cheney shooting someone in the face
MOON MONKIES: https://youtu.be/aZrks-BPeLQ
crt tvs/monitors being the norm and rich people can only afford flat screens
old nickelodeon shows like hey arnold, all that, amanda show, drake and josh, og spongebob, catdog, i can go on and on.
old school cartoon network shows like ed edd and eddy, powderpuff girls, og adult swim
top 40 was: outkast's hey ya, brittany spears, backstreet boys, og justin timberlake (loveYBACK), smash mouth.

i can go on and on but this will do.
