I stopped caring about my shoes when I got to middle school and my mother just couldn't afford them.

A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Heh, I used to wear converse back in elementary school, so ya, that was before they were cool too.
Oh, and my pay-less shoes that lit up when you walked. They were Power Ranger's.

I started wearing em when I stared caring about how my shoes look. Ad they were already cool then :P.
But I just love those things regardless of whether they're cool or not.
Some friends of ours are currently in America, and they're gonna bring me a new pair of All Stars.
And with the low dollar course I get em for half of what they cost here :D

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.

But you can install custom sound packs right?

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...
