      I looked around in the P&T forum, and was surprised that no one had posted a topic / thread about it.

      In my own words, individualism is similar to objectivism, but specifically revolves around yourself. Individualism is (obviously) all about being yourself and being independet, hence "individualism". The "downside" to this (some people believe) is selfishness; some individualists argue that selfishness is a virtue, while others think it is not a good thing to inherit (though what is "good", honestly?).

      There's also a lot on egoism, but personally, I like to think that being an individualist is about thinking for yourself, making your own "good" choices (and not ALWAYS having to justify why you did it), and (in relation to reason #1), believing what you believe because you think it is rational.

      A musician will enjoy this.
      about five months ago (like a bird, time flies) I said I bought a $2200 keyboard.
      I never gave pictures but I'm not a faggoty liar and I do actually have a $2200 keyboard.

      PICT0622.jpg

      It's a beauty. 61 keys of awesomeness. On the left there are eight slides and eight knobs. Each knob has three different controls (Equalizer, Cutoff, Sustain, Release, etc). The slides control the volume of different pieces in the voice, but if you're playing on a performance setting, it controls the volume of the different instruments. Performance settings are basically voices but with arpeggios that usually have a drum beat so you can make up something to it with background guitars and everything.

      The thing has SO many voices and even if you can get through all of them, you'll spend forever changing the sounds of each voice with the 24 settings / 8 slides. Three other things you can't see are the pitch bend and modulation wheels (pitch bend changes pitch and modulation can do whatever it's assigned, like a rotary speaker, respectively) as well as a "Ribbon Slide" which can bend the pitch ever so slightly or increase the sound of something you can't hear without touching it (or sliding your finger across it, as it's called a Ribbon Slide).

      The Yamaha Motif XS6, epic keyboard.

      PICT0624.jpg

      I'm packing a Zakk Wylde mini-stack (MG15-MS2W) for the output.

      PICT0623.jpg

      These are my drums (I have an acoustic set to the left), $1700 kit + temple blocks, a tambourine (not on it), an extra crash/ride (shitty but sounds decent for ride) and a "jambell" (higher pitched cowbell).

      I like my room.

    • I wanna get high, with my friends

      So I rocked out with those two friends. It was epic. My friend Kris came over and he knows The Ocean (Led Zeppelin bitches) quite well on bass so we're all like "whoo" and I yelled whatever the hell John yells at the beginning (got four already and we're going steady and he said, 1, 2, 3, 4 or something).

      More songs to learn on piano -.- Maybe I'm Amazed, I am the Walrus, With A Little Help From My Friends and Vienna still. Almost done Vienna :D

      I downloaded Adobe Audition (stealing ftw) and I'll learn how to use that now, great ...

      I need a haircut.

      Peace out,

      John's journal got deleted. :(

      So I'm gonna rock out with another new friend today, who might bring one of his own friends over (another musician) and we can all kick ass. The new friend guy is pretty good so yeah.

      I've also been trying to learn the last bit of Let It Be and god damn I hate Paul McCartney's hands, he can do like super octave stretches and it hurts my hands. Another tune I'm trying to learn is "Vienna" by Billy Joel, which is a very good tune if you haven't heard it.

      I may work on AWiP before Chris gets here, or Defiance. Defiance is actually going quite nicely, I personally think the storyline is solid (thanks Adam).

    • I hate the wind

      11 years ago

      BirdPhobia

      Have I ever told you guys that?

      Well, JediJesus has another epic journal that is epic, on a many level.

      Anyways, I didn't go to sleep the other day, which was kinda shitty, and then yesterday, after having no sleep, I go for a 25 KM bike ride also without eating for a good 18 hours, so when I got home, I was like "all of you go fuck yourselves and die in hell". The reason why I hate the wind is that it always pushes me back when I go biking, which makes me frustrated, and then yell loudly, which makes me look slightly retarded.

      I got the Wii to connect online (fuckin' finally, 360 > Wii for connection) so yeah, anyone who has a Wii, give me your numbah.

      I've also been playing a bit of Saints Row, which, if you don't know already, is the greatest fucking 360 game I've ever played (Chrome Hounds and FEAR being a nice second and third). The sequel comes out in October (though other sources say August 24th, wtf?) and it looks orgasmic. I have never seen such an epic game trailer.

      Peace out,
      [A-Town]

      All of your friends are here, are whispering
      I think you left me for their government
      All of your friends, I hope they're listening
      I wish you'd stop wasting all my energy.


      Hello y'all, John's journal made community stats because of his epic friends (including moi). We rool.

      Anyways updates, well, life is boring, I've like lost the will to live, I just want to sleep through the summer unless something good happens. I've been trying to learn some new Beatles tunes (She Came in Thru the Bathroom Window and Lady Madonna), and to say the least, Lady Madonna is a bitch on a many level.

      Speaking of music, I played my new dream bass. An American Fretless Jazz Bass, the action is so nice and it's got a wicked sound. Sorta like Geddy's jazz bass but easier (and harder, in ways) to play.

      I've decided not to film my live-action movie 'til school starts, too many schedule problems. I also plan to buy a real microphone with a boom so I can record GOOD dialogue without the god damn wind ruining everything. I hate the wind. Srsly.

      I haven't really written anything in terms of stories or lyrics. A bit of scriptwork for Defiance but meh, nothing much.

      Take care y'all,

    • What a night

      so I *finally* got XBL Gold again. Add me, BP Afterimage.
      I got the Legendary map pack and also the 7/7 map which is pretty cool.

      after getting Gold I went on and tried out Cold Storage, then played with a load of people ... shotgunchief (take notice of no capital 'S'), i_r_caboose, BattleFrag, PuDgEball and a whole bunch of others that I don't know their RVB names to :D
      Later I played a few rounds with shotgun and Adam but the last round I was against them for some dumbass reason and they whooped my ass. shotgun betrayed me in a match when we were on a team (I was like " :O you bitch!") and so I decided to stick a sword up her ass.

      Me and Spartan were giggling at shotgun while she was on XBL Support ... trying to change her GT from "shotgunchief" to "Shotgunchief". Spartan said, "I'm sorry, but did you say gamertag, or gamertizzle?"

      Spartan also gave me a heart attack while playing Cold Storage, he was camoflauged and scared teh sh1t out of me.

      Nothin' else to say really, except Amanda (shotgun) is a filthy whore who likes to betray people and take it up the ass from energy swords :D

      -- Bird

      PS. (dedicated to you Amanda)
      Me: Yeah she works the corner.
      Adam: at best buy, she's into the electronic guys
      Me: Wait do you mean robots or guys in the electronic department?

      so I got to see Hancock and the Incredible Hulk recently. Good movies. I recommend them, personally.

      Filming soon, I think. For my live-action movie.

      Life is boring.

      Music is fun.

      Writing is good.

      everything else sucks.

      December, I may be in BC. :D
