Yeah, the new single by Psy was pretty disappointing. Considering the giant amount of hype Daft Punk have created for this album, hopefully it'll live up to that hype. I'm listening to Discovery and it reminds how the album is so inconsistent in quality. Songs like the first four tracks, Superheroes, Voyager, and Veridis Quo will always be important classics to me. Songs like Crescendolls, High Life, and Too Long however... Well, let's just say they do not excite me when they're about to come on. Too Long should've never been so goddamn long. -_- The joke behind the song's title stopped being funny after the first listen.

i really wish they'd stop teasing and release a single an the mv already
The teasing is getting ridiculous, but it is effective in building a fuckload of hype. :/ Brilliant marketing on their part.

Daft Punk released another commercial for SNL tonight. :D Most of it is the footage from Coachella, but now we can see it in great quality.

44
New SNL ad. This time we finally get a sample of a song that's a different song.


45
Too bad the sound quality to Alive 2007 sucked. Alive 1997 had much better sound quality but musically, both live albums were awesome.

Edit-

The titles of the songs have now been revealed: [LINK]
We now have additional information about Daft Punk's new look: [LINK]

By the time their new album releases, hopefully I won't end up getting sick of their main single. >_> I played that Coaci'm gay video over ten times last night. RELEASE THE ALBUM, DAMMIT!

Quote
The album's move away from computerized sounds reflects Daft Punk's "ambivalence" about the EDM craze they helped to inspire. "Electronic music right now is in its comfort zone and it's not moving one inch," Thomas says. "That's not what artists are supposed to do." He adds that the genre is suffering "an identity crisis: You hear a song, whose track is it? There's no signature. Skrillex has been successful because he has a recognizable sound: You hear a dubstep song, even if it's not him, you think it's him."

Unsurprisingly, the stale state of the electronic dance music scene had a big impact on their musical direction's future.

Let's face it, mainstream dance and electronic music has gotten really stale...really...really...really fucking stale. Much of it sounds the same and dubstep took over mainstream electronic music (which also sounds the same WUBWUBWUB). The future of dance and electronic music has not looked very good and as a result, I think many people are getting sick of it. This is probably why artists like Adele and Gotye have become so successful because a lot of people want something new. So in a time when electronic dance music is the most sale it's been in ages, the long awaited 4th album by Daft Punk seems like it might the glimmer of hope this industry needs. After a series of teaser commercials, they launched a video series called The Collaborators where people who worked on the album talk about their experiences in the music industry and their involvement on the album.







After three episodes, it became very clear this album was going to be very influenced by '70s disco. Last night, they finally revealed more about the album in a surprise video demonstration at Coachella and yeah, they are going full out disco.



How will this album change the industry? Could many of these collaborators have a career revival? Will disco become huge again? Soon we'll find out and I couldn't be more excited about this album's release.

Edit-

lol coachella. Damn word filter.

Entertainment / Re: Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed

Thanks for the advice. I'll keep that in mind next time I play the game. I imagine the only way I'll get good at the online play is if I play it a lot, but I figure it's best I try to get far in the single player first so I'm very familiar with the maps. Currently, I have all the stars for the first 3/5 cups or whatever they're called in career mode. Haven't tried any of the other modes yet, but a lot of them seem very fun as well. This game was definitely worth the $20.25 I spent at Green Man Gaming. For anyone interested in this game that doesn't own it yet, you can buy it for only $14.98 at GamersGate. [LINK] They also have a ton of other Sonic games on sale too.

Plus Sonic Heroes was kind of crappy. I originally pre-ordered ASRT and but couldn't really enjoy it until recently because of computer problems. I've only really played this game on two different nights and put over 5 hours into the game both nights. If I had zero responsibilities, I probably would have over 40 hours logged in by the end of next week. >_> It took me 13 years to finally find a kart racing game I like about as much as Crash Team Racing and finally found it with this game. Mostly just playing single-player right now until I complete a ton of stuff since I want to be good at the game before heading online. You can find me on Steam here. With the exception of Alien: Colonial Marines, it seems like nearly every game SEGA has released lately is considered at least of "good" quality and I like that they're taking the PC platform seriously nowadays. I don't think consoles will do as well next gen and many PC gamers such as myself enjoy SEGA games so this was a smart move on their part.

mario kart for wii was so horrible that i don't think i'll ever play another racing game again for as long as i live and i shall die old and full of remorse

Mario Kart Wii's weapon balancing system sucked which ruined that game for me while ASRT has solid weapon balancing. The game lets you know if a player has a weapon and the weapons are usually dodgeable if you're skilled enough. Plus like rtil said, none of the attacks are anywhere near as cheap as the blue shell from the Mario Kart games. I fucking hate the tornado attacks though. Damn attack is disorientating and ruined what could have been some great rounds for me. >_<

Not a big fan of the series, but that looks like a pretty cool rom hack. Nice work.

Outside of the censored vulgarity and title card, the episode was pretty clean. Worst part of the episode is that it felt like it ended too quickly. I forgot the episode segments were so short. o_O

Edit: Here's an uncensored version:
""Dexter's Rude ..." This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by The Cartoon Network, Inc.. "

:(

I'm an introvert, but definitely not an extreme one like I used to be. I was extremely anti-social in my teenage years and liked the fact I had no rl friends. Nowadays, that has changed a lot. I have made a lot of rl friends, I love having out with them, and I love partying. But I also love having time to myself and learned I need a balance of sorts. Too much time alone can make me go nuts, but being around people constantly is exhausting and can make me more sick of dealing with people. >_> Really enjoyed watching both that video and the newest episode that released today.

General / Re: Your Username and You
« on: December 8, 2012 03:14 PM »
Wow, I'm surprised so many people here had their usernames originate from their initials as well. o_O I originally came up with my username for a Sonic sprite comic I made in 2003 that never went publicly online. The character was a modified version of the Tails sprites from Sonic Advance and it looked generic as fuck. The character was blue, wore a red shirt, wore black pants, and for some fucking reason, I had the character wear green shoes. Two years later, I made a different version in 2005 that looked less shitty.



Then later that year, I discovered furries and ditched my character once I found out it some people thought I was a furry because I hated furries at the time. (Ironically, many years later, one of my best friends is a furry.) While my fan character was scrapped long ago, I'll never ditch my username. I use it on any site that allows me to use periods. My alternative variations are W-A-C, WAC, wac, WAC89, and wac89. Hmm... WAC89 is my initials and the year I was born. >_> I'm so unoriginal with usernames.

Edit-

Worth mentioning I use FriedCrickets for PSN and YouTube, and I hate that username nowadays.

I've been an adult since 2007. >_> I'm 23 now.

I can begin hating you if you want I mean I'm not that much of a dick usually so I'm sure I have some hate to spare.

Nah, I'm good.

Yeah, I was kind of surprised I went so long without posting here. I've barely posted on forums at all in the last six months.

I didn't pay much attention to the general election this year since I didn't feel like it. Granted, I did necessary research for things like propositions and whatnot, but spending so much time delved into this political bullshit seemed like a waste of my time. I didn't even bother to watch the presidential debates. Granted, that was mostly because the timing was terrible since I was asleep during 2/3 of them and I was fixing my computer during the last debate, but it definitely shows how little I invested into this election compared to four years ago. (Why is my old Politics Discussion Thread inaccessible? o_O) While I voted for Nader four years ago, I chose to vote for Obama this year since I had no reason to vote for a third party candidate this year. I'm not a fan of Obama, but at least he's a decent president during who became president during a very tough time in our economy. Our country's politics are just so fucked up at this point I have little hope in country's political future, but hey maybe Obama will appoint a new Supreme Court justice during his tenure that'll tip the Supreme Court toward overturning that fucking horrid Citizens United case. At least this election has been good for progressive causes like gay marriage and marijuana rights.



One thing I feel is very worth mentioning is the concession speech Romney made. As much as I hate Romney, that was the first speech I ever watched him give where he was actually likable. I think the fact his cockiness led him to write the speech at the last minute helped make the speech more legitimate and less full of shit. He actually seemed human for once instead of some corporate political machine. It showed me another side to him which made me wonder what the fuck does politics do to a lot of these people? It seems to destroy the personality of a lot of these people and make them much more heartless. A great example is Rick Santorum.



Rick Santorum was actually a pretty chill guy in his college years. Then he became a politician and that was all over. Our political system is so damn broken. A lot of these people probably get so obsessed with power or doing whatever they can to stay elected or to please their corporate interest that it fucking wrecked this system. We need massive election reform in this country. Money plays too much of a role in our politics and the Electoral College is a dated system that hasn't aged well at all. Even Al Gore admitted on election night that he thinks this country needs to get rid of the Electoral College. Surprisingly, he still supported it even after losing the Electoral Vote in 2000 but he changed his mind in recent years because of what a divided nation we have become. He thinks it's terrible only a small number of states get attention during election time and hopes National Popular Vote becomes successful someday. If your state hasn't signed onto that, try to take action because that would be a miracle for our political system.
