#1425550 Depression And Other Social Issues

Posted by angry_polar_bear on 25 June 2020 - 02:51 PM

Yep, best advice is to go easy until you get a sense of how it affects you. Eg don’t go on a bender on a work night. I was taking some medication a while back that made me have a very bad time with alcohol but it really just takes some trial and error to figure out if your limits have changed at all.

#1425518 Depression And Other Social Issues

Posted by angry_polar_bear on 25 June 2020 - 09:20 AM

When I was new to this forum, it took me a while to get to know various bits of forum history and jargon like whether it is am or pm, and who is this Snappleman person who posts under a different name. I guess I get the benefit of seeing the current result of all that personal development without having seen all the steps along the way. I have a massive amount of respect for anyone who can reflect on whatever wrongs they might have done in the past and try to be a better person, and for what it’s worth I hope we get a chance to meet in person one day.

#1425469 Street Cleaner: The Video Game

Posted by angry_polar_bear on 24 June 2020 - 03:29 PM

I want to back the shit out of this, but could I get a shizzie volunteer in the US to be the delivery address (for future handover of goods at an undetermined future date in the future)? The shipping cost to Canada is pretty high and I’d rather put that $ to the cause than to a package handler

#1425123 TODAY: Virtual Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo 2020 *and* Brew Game Plus Z

Posted by angry_polar_bear on 20 June 2020 - 10:47 AM

Hello theshizz

There’s a virtual cornucopia of online streaming music today if you desire to be entertained!

First up, Vancouver Retro Gaming Expo has moved online due to the covids, and the show starts at 1pm Pacific with a mix of music and guests.


Since it’s all online, there are quite a few non-Vancouver acts! Musical offerings include:

(All times are Pacific)

1pm: Press X
2pm: 20SIX Hundred
3pm: MATT, TheBanjoPlayer (Matt Menefee of The Hit Points)
4pm: Andrea Galvini
4:30pm: porta2note
5pm: 88bit
5:45pm: Jewel Maiden
6pm: The Runaway Four (hi yes that’s me)

AND if your ear holes are still left wanting more, Aztec Brewing is doing some reruns of past shows at Brew Game Plus which would have been having its latest version today...


7pm: Extra Lives
8pm: The Koopas (feat. Daemon9623 <3)
9pm: Kirby’s Dream Band

Holy moly that’s a lot of music!

Hope to see some of you in the chat... also based on a popular vote the keyboard cam will be aimed at my butt to provide a unique concert viewing perspective.

#1424699 The home recording thread

Posted by angry_polar_bear on 13 June 2020 - 08:21 PM

Hey all, worth spending some $ to get the full version of Kontakt? I noticed there’s a summer sale AND I can get the cross grade price because I have Super Audio Cart (thanks DoD!)

But what can I do with full Kontakt that I can’t already do...? I don’t understand its capabilities too well although I know tons of people use it.

NatalieNicole, thank you for sharing your journey with us! One of the real benefits of socializing on a text-based forum is that you can be known for your words and not necessarily anything else about your identity, so I’m glad you feel comfortable enough to share and I would love to see you post more frequently.

#1423807 C&C Remastered

Posted by angry_polar_bear on 04 June 2020 - 01:35 PM

I forgot this was coming out so soon and I’m pretty stoked about it. C&C was huge for me back in the day and really marked a point when my tastes (both gaming and musical) suddenly opened up to a whole different world.

On the other point I always like to remember the old adage that we tend to judge ourselves by our intentions but others by their actions. So there might be a whole process of thought and reflection that happens before you do something but often nobody gets to know that except you, and they might interpret your actions differently without the context. It’s helpful to recognize when that might be happening (on both sides of the equation).

For what it’s worth over the last few years that I’ve been here I’ve found this place to have a fairly healthy level of self-promo in amidst the forum banter so this thread didn’t seem at all out of place to me. Like mig said you can always skip over if you’re not interested.

I’m a baritone and I’m about an E2 to Ab4. I can go a bit higher or lower depending on a few factors. Although my singing teacher told me that my passaggio is such that I could actually train as a tenor if I wanted to. Voices are pretty interesting.

#1422890 What games are you playing now?

Posted by angry_polar_bear on 24 May 2020 - 12:25 PM

I really loved the steady progression in the Overworld theme as you unlocked new areas... it’s masterfully done and super catchy.
