      I need to be able to burn a CD with certain requirements.

      - Capable of gapless playback on a CD player,
      - Crossfading songs at different lengths, both intro and outro (I.E. Track one fades out 1 second ahead, track two fades in 2 seconds ahead, and track two also fades out at 3 seconds ahead)
      - Cutting and adding song length (especially adding a minute of no sound, like on some album bonus tracks)
      - Combining and splitting tracks
      - Specifying at what point in the track these modifications can occur, down to at least a tenth of a second.

      I assume Roxio 11 can do this based on their guide, but I want to be absolutely sure before dishing out the money. If not, is there any application or combination of applications that can?

    • I Need To Pick My Intellectual Battles

      I offhandedly posed a theory to my sister about Avatar claiming that Eywa was not a deity, but merely a consciousness within the plantlife manipulating the evolution of the flora and fauna of the planet to maintain itself. The evolution of the Na'vi as a sentient species and their subsequent worship of Eywa as a god nearly guaranteed that survival. By the end of the movie these planetary natives rejected technology and became xenophobic - which meant that they'd never advance technologically and never allow any other sentient species attempt to colonize the planet and threaten Eywa's existence.

      Not to mention, plants reproduce more easily than animals. All they need is soil. Plant one seed from Eywa's "trees of life" on another planet, and it's only a matter of time before you've got more of these consciousnesses popping up all over the galaxy to manipulate their evolutionary tracks and make their networked species the dominant lifeform on each world, with zealous followers willing to drive off anything that opposes their holy of holies.

      My sister freaked out on me by the end of it and claimed I had no respect for druidic beliefs and just wanted to belittle her for appreciating the movie.

    • 649 Pokémon ... T_T

      8 years ago

      Michael_JC

      I have high school buddies making such remarks as "Wow, I haven't picked up my Diamond version in forever" and "I remember the good 'ol days on Gameboy Advance". Talk about an age-experience gap. I remember the good 'ol days of my Gameboy Pocket, where all Pokémon were Black and White (and a handful of blurry shades of gray). There were more monsters introduced in this newest generation than the original 151. Hell, even though I've played though Gen3 and dabbled with the DS games, I personally don't prefer to follow the series beyond a 'Dex ending in "#251 Celebi".

      I still recall the days where I was fascinated by the handheld game system my friend brought into afterschool care playing "Blue Version" and talking about how his brother had a "Gameboy Color" and just bought "The Pikachu Version". I still have my fully completed Crystal Version stashed away in my room, where I often start it up to lol at Lugia's overpowered *Special Defense. I recall what it was like trying to collect all the Eeveelutions, the Tyrogue evolutions, the Mew duo, the starters, the traded evolutions, the birds, the beasts, the one-shot wonders (Sudowoodo, Snorlax, etc), and 26 fucking Unowns!

      What happened to Pokémon actually resembling something with attributes inherent to a living creature? Sure, you had stuff like Ditto, the Voltorb and Magnemite evolution families, Tangela, and a sludge-covered Cousin It named Grimer/Muk, and Gen2 even threw in Wobbuffet just to downright fuck with me, but at least you didn't have THIS!

      145px-501Oshawott.png

      What the FUCK is that? Can you imagine that trying to fight? What kind of name is Oshowatt?! You're kidding! Your average 10-year-old runaway will not be able to pronounce that. Take a look at this fucker's evolutionary line when you get a chance, too. Fucking hell, every start in Gen1 and Gen2 was at least recognizable in their fully evolved form. You saw a Cyndaquil inherent within the Typhlosion fireblasting away at the enemy. You remember the shell of the Squirtle you got on day 1 even when there are two gigantic water cannons protruding from atop it. You still recognize the happy little golden-furred fieldmouse in the face of that Raichu you evolved after trading it from your yellow cartridge.

      I stopped caring after Generation II, which is funny, because Gen2 creatures were seen as early as the first episode and movie of the anime. I put up with Gen3 because it still feels like I'm playing a Gameboy Pokémon game (and Groudon/Kyogre/Rayquaza were an EPIC looking legendary mascot trio), but after that, it just gets sad to me. They're not lovable creatures from a fantasy world. They're mutated abominations that only a mother could love. You have to try to be that ugly, cause the most hideous you could be on accident is swollen rubber balls for fingertips and a secondary pipeline behind your neck (to house that super-psychic spinal nerve - or at least, that's the explanation I would give. Seriously, it's not his fault, he was cloned at a nuclear plant close to a volcano).

      *I use my Cursing Lugia moveset to occasionally run solo through the Battle Tower since no one plays the old generations anymore. Hell, I could play through again right now, catch a stock Lugia, teach it Psychic and Fly, and wipe out the entirety of the Elite Four with just it.

      As the saying goes, "arguing on the internet is like running in the Special Olympics". So then why do I do it? Perhaps I actually ENJOY conversation enough to attempt to engage in such even with the most dim-witted of webfolk.

      Is there a key to this? "what a fag", "your garbage", "all fags get blocked. fat loser. bye bye. oh and remember i won this argument". Regardless of how thoroughly I diagnose the problem of his existence, his own self-importance will always save him.

      Not that it actually bothers me at the end of the day that someone pretended they had superiority over me. What bothers me, in my overall spite for human existence, is that I failed to coerce a perfect example of the scum of the earth into realizing for himself that he is worth little more than the lint I filter from my dryer every week.

      I want to hear the sobs of people like this, the dry, choking sobs of their decrepit bodies as they give their final words on their deathbeds, failing still to come to terms with just how much they wasted in life and yearning to give up their last breath so that it will all go away.

      And what shall I do when I collect their dreadful, filthy tears? Light a bong.

      Fuckers.

      I got a laptop, and reformatted my computer.

      Now I have two computers, but I forgot I barely ever do anything online anymore.

      Does this mean I'm twice as bored?

      On a completely unrelated note, I want to have a custom deadbolt lock put on my bedroom door, with a stylized key. Just something to be unique, I guess. Thing is, I can't seem to find any places online that offer this sort of thing. One would think that there's at least some sort of market for it, but I guess it's not really something people really give a shit about.

      Ideas?

      Haters wanna hate.

      Mosh pits in a small venue like The Armory near my house are uncalled for. Got a few bruises because they wanted to rain on the parade begun by me and my friends at the front of the stage. Security took care of them after we walked out, but we missed the finale of the band we went there to see. My hair won't get untangled for a while, and I just recovered from the Against the Stone concert. Gonna be sore again for the next few days.

      Went to a concert last night at a venue in Atlanta called the Masquerade, not sure if anyone who reads my journal is familiar with the city enough to know the place, though, so moving on.

      45773_1613088049860_1316050081_31708127_

      That is the bass guitarist for Against the Stone, my roommate, AJ Evans. He brings people to their knees in tears of blood. They're up and coming around Atlanta, and they're amazing good.

      I'm sore from rocking out.

      I just received news that he may be planning to move out, so that comes as a sad addendum to the fun that was last night.

    • She's a Bit Bitey

      8 years ago

      Michael_JC

      There is a very, very small mosquito in my room. I don't know how she got here, but she's gotten me four times already. Even her bite marks are small, but they're all on my hands. There's two on the side of my left hand at the base of my pinky, and three on the base of my thumb on my right hand.

      I have tried killing her several times. She has been in here for the entire afternoon. I can see her right now flying about. She's got faster reaction time than a housefly, and she's the only blood-sucking bug I've ever encountered to stop feeding in time to fly away from my attempts to swat her.

      I'm very much bothered.

      By the way, I got my college registration sorted out, bought books, and am due for a healthy amount of refund money from financial aid. My car is running, and I'll be able to do a lot more for it when my refund comes in.

      I've also been losing weight. I'm 5'9" (short) and went from 163 lbs to 156 in a week. It's not that I need to slim up, as I'm not fat, but I need to get a better cut. I'd like some fitness in my life.

      I moved back into my house (instead of renting it out like I wanted. It's a big room. My accomodations at my roommate's were smaller, but comfy, and paying rent there was a much smaller fee than what I could get as my cut of the rent my family would charge for my old room. I.E. Profit!)

      Love life is dwindling. Every girl I've dated or had sparks for in (quite literally as of yesterday) the last year has gone on their own way, and I'm out for new blood. My self-improvement cycle is coming into play here. I'm cleaner, thinner, older, calmer, and smarter (by a little. It's hard to improve an intelligence that's already skyrocketed). The question I have to ask myself is, do I want another serious relationship? Or... Do I wanna get lucky, punk? That was distasteful.

      Okay first, just watch this video. At the least pay attention to the bit about masks. That should for sure be your first buy even before a gun. TechPB videos are really good for getting some info on paintball.

      Anyways. A5 over BT-4 hands-down, simply because BT-4s and Tippmann 98s are your rental guns. Some places rent out A5s for a higher rental package but this way, yours is yours. You can customize it, you'll take care of it, so on and so forth. Secondly, in the video Mike recommends people buying their loader first. A5s and the Tippmann X7 both come stock with the Tippmann Cyclone™ feeder system, it's basically Tippmann's patented loader system. So you don't have to buy one separately. Saves you a bit of money down the road. Like I said the downside is air consumption, since the Cyclone™ feeds using air from your tank as opposed to batteries like every other loader.

      I'm not too sure just how serious you plan on getting into paintball, but if you plan on playing often down the road and simply want a functional, easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain starting marker, Tippmann and BTs are easy bets. Tippmanns especially can take a lot of punishment, too, before they crap out on you.

      On the other hand if you'd like a sweet marker that you can use for a couple seasons, start with a mask and loader and tank and save up for an airball/speedball marker. You can get a cheap mask, cheap loader, and a not-so-cheap carbon 4500 PSI tank before you even get the marker and you'll be all set. Carbon tanks can be a little pricey but for a speedball gun they're absolutely worth it, my Vice setup weighs about five pounds even with paint in the loader.
      Nowadays if you save a bit of money, say five or six hundred bucks, I think you can buy either the new Empire Axe or Dangerous Power G4 for about that price. I know the Axe is very lightweight and very quiet when shooting.

      The other thing too is if you buy a speedball-style marker first, you can use it well in both woodsball and speedball. Woodsball markers tend to get shot to hell in speedball but speedball guns are great in the woods. You can watch this video to give you some food for thought.

      I'm not trying to steer you away from purchasing an A5, by all means it would be a great marker to start with and it'd be cheap enough for you to buy a mask and just start playing. I'm just trying to encourage you to do appropriate research before you actually go out and start buying stuff willy-nilly. I know you're on a budget and I am too, hell my Vice was only $750 but it took me six months to save up for it, and in the process I was also buying stuff for it like a loader and a tank!


      Now I'm guessing you're gonna be a dick and simply reply TL;DR even after reading this, but I'm hoping it gives you a bit of a better understanding for your options. If you'd like to get a nice reliable starting marker, pick up a mask you like and grab an A5. You can then customize it all you want, there's all sorts of DIY body kits on the market that you can find online or in local pro shops.

      Feel free to ask me for my opinions if you want, just don't treat them as the be-all and end-all for paintball advice. I'm still learning some things myself. You can also look up TechPB videos on YouTube or even just random stuff such as, say, "A5 shooting" videos to get an idea of how the gun looks and sounds when it's shooting.

      Have fun bro.

      If you've got a very feminine face I imagine that it works well. People think I'm gay enough as it is, I suppose I'll ask the salon hair person whether or not they think it'll work with my hair face, I'll trust them on it.


      I don't really want scene hair, I'd leave the bangs still pretty long, my school tolerates my hair length, they've never said shit, it was my choice to wear it up and out of my eyes. I don't want to look like scene though, ugh....


      My hair's wavy too, so Idk how it would look...

      I'm not really trying for dreadlocks so, i'll stick to washing for now lol

      I only brush it coming out of the shower, just to straighten it before I let it dry out.


      I haven't cut it once in three years, I've always had like, buzz cuts though, and normally my hair grows fast so IDK, I might just get a trim sometime soon, people keep telling me to get it layered too, but idk.

    • HeavyMuffins

      My dad's making me use Head and Shoulders now because he thinks it'll keep me from getting dandruff, but my hair gets shitty when I don't match shampoo and conditioner, so that makes sense. I need to start picking my own shit out and not listening to him.

      He also tells me that letting my hair get greasy will help it grow, and that if I don't brush it I don't "stimulate my follicles", he thinks because he had long hair like 20 years ago he's the foremost figure on hair care lol


      I never blowdry either, I just brush it to get some knots out and let it air dry. I don't use any products or anything either, I have no use.

      My dad keeps saying my hair's not as long as it should be, I've been growing it for maybe three years at most and it's down just past my shoulders by an inch or two, but since it's very wavy it usually hangs a bit above my shoulders. I know it's dependent on the person, how fast their hair grows, but does he have a point?
