I saw this while drinking my coffee early this morning, and thought it was the bee's knees.

I'm not even that big a fan of Parkour/Free Running, but I think it looks amazing and I will buy it when it comes out (assuming it comes out for 360)

Speaking of which, if any of you have 360's, and want to add me, my gamertag is TenFortyEZ (Yeah, like the tax form.)

I guess I'll list mine, too, since I see these absent from the list (most of 'em, at least.)
Marvin Gaye -Beautiful Song. 'nuff said.
Barry White -This is, in my honest opinion, the best song ever recorded.
The Isley Brothers -I can't imagine how many of us were conceived to this song, but I guarantee my children will be.
Teddy Pendergrass -I played this at work once over the speaker system, since I always make mixes of great soul music to play at the restaurant I'm manager at, and I was shocked at the lyrics (I had just got the album that day) but I enjoyed it. Surprisingly, nobody asked me to turn it off.

Michael Jackson -If you don't like the "Thriller" album, you must be deaf. Actually, even deaf people could enjoy Michael Jackson, so you must just not like good music.

GZA -NSFW. The Wu-Tang only managed to record one decent album (36 Chambers), and to be honest, I prefer GZA's album "Liquid Swords." The whole album is solid, and eventually led me to see the movie "Shogun Assassin." See that movie. See it.
Kool Keith -NSFW, but I recommend listening to this album at some point, if not for the great rapping, simply for the fact that Kool Keith is the most outrageous rapper ever. If you don't believe me, check out the lyrics: Once again, NSFW
Clipse -Also NSFW. I don't listen to mainstream rap that much, but I couldn't pass up Clipse. They didn't achieve much commercial success, but I think they're the best rap group ever. You'd think that hearing songs about selling cocaine, wearing cool shoes, and drinking kool-aid would get old, but they dont.
Lil Wayne -NSFW. I think that if Lil Wayne sat in a recording booth for a year, and recorded twenty songs every day, maybe 10 of them in total would be decent. Lil Wayne is really the only mainstream rapper that I listen to. If you want to listen to Lil Wayne, I only reccomend getting The Drought 3 (a mixtape, free online) and The Carter III (His newest album, surprisingly decent. Check out "A Millie" if you have subs.)
A Tribe Called Quest -NSFW. Awesome album, awesome song. I still haven't figured out why Q-tip decided to just repeat his first verse instead of making a second one, but whatever. Still a great song, and a great message.

The Presidents of the United States of America -I'm sure you've all heard this song. This whole album (self-titled) is amazing, seriously. If you like this song, I recommend getting the entire album, it's just as good.
Primus -Oh jeez, Primus. This is one of my favorite songs by them. In middle school, I bought all of their albums, and I love every one. As far as I remember this is SFW, but if you don't wanna risk it, I'd wait, because I'm not 100% on that. Oh, and there will never be a better bassist than Les Claypool.

El Guincho -I'm not a big fan of any Indie music, but El Guincho is awesome. My friend, who likes Animal Collective, and Sonic Youth, and basically anyone who performed at the Pitchfork Music Festival, described El Guinch is the spanish Animal Collective. I think this is just one guy who has random Latin percussion instruments and a sampler, and manages to make albums. It's relaxing to listen to.

That's about all I can think of. I'll edit accordingly, but whatever.

Custom sound packs, yes. Honestly, I tried searching for some back when I used FL Studio, and I found nothing but spam adverts and websites selling drum samples for more than FL Studio itself. It wasn't worth the hassle.

I use Reason, now. Best switch I could've made. Only issue is that I can't figure out how the sampling works/whether or not it exists. I use audacity for that, though...

everyone is waiting for those.
seven years to go...  :y:

Fruityloops seems like a good program so far, I can already make some basic music with the limited knowledge of the program I have, and I know there's a lot more to it too.
It's a tough process trying to make music while learning the program, the music creating process is... interesting to say the least :P

Fruity Loops is by no means a bad program insofar as producing is concerned, but if you wanna do anything beyond a simple hobby, you need to get some better samples. Honestly, FL Studio couldn't have worse drum packs.

EDIT: Before I got to college, where I will no longer be able to get software by my usual means, I want to get a good game, preferably something sand-boxy, and that will take me a long time to complete. Something with some replay-value would be great, as well. Nothing too fantasy-based, though, I hate stuff like that. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I'm still waiting for these:

Honestly, if these came out, I'd camp out for days beforehand to get my hands on a pair.

I don't own a Nintendo DS.

Plus, these are unlike any other shoes. They are the lightest, strongest basketball shoes ever made.

Also, my last shoes (or current other pair of shoes) is a pair of Burgundy Jordan 5's.

Hey all.

Just hit the mall for a fresh pair of Hyperdunks. Got the first pair of the day at Foot Locker:

If anyone wants to hoop, you know who to call...

Hey all, I'm back, sorta.

I was searchin' around the interwebs, and found the new site.

@.TakaM - Unless you're buying the software, go for Reason. If for no other reason, choose it for the fact that Fruity Loops drum samples suck.
On a side note, I really like the Gimp:

The one that's riding a bike is me. The guy that's Jesus and the Cowgirl is my friend Turner. The one who's in a gay metal band with toasters is my friend Reginald.

I've been scratching since november or something like that.

The beat is from one of Q's vinyls. So are the samples I'm scratching.

I'm not one to just scratch the old "aah" and "fresh" samples, but I figured I'd just use 'em for recording.

That movie was ingenious. Definitely.

I don't think I appreciated Little Miss Sunshine in the way I was supposed to.

Lots of people bring up these philisophic principles, and strange allusions to other things. I liked the movie because there was a pedophile, and the horn wouldn't stop honking.

If you wanna see a REALLY good movie, rent Pulp Fiction. Better yet, rent Pi. Better even still, rent Eraserhead. Then we'll talk about movies.
