Gaming / Re: 2O19 Gaming Stats
« on: January 15, 2020, 08:29:44 PM »
I only played five games throughout all of 2019. Destiny 2, Halo MCC, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, KOTOR, and THUG Pro

No idea how many hours spend playing but it wasn't nearly as many as I used to spend.

I haven't seen it yet. Probably wont until after the home release. My dad saw it and said the pacing was totally off. If what I heard about so many scenes being cut is true then that would make sense I guess. He's pretty pissed that they basically scrapped everything they filmed with Hayden Christensen, Ewan Macgregor etc. but still enjoyed a lot of what was there. I'm pretty disappointed about the cuts as well. I don't care if the movie would've been around 3 hours, I think it should've been tbh. They had so many loose ends to tie up.

I sleep with my back raised up on a mountain of pillows.

Still on my side though.

I still love all three but 2 is my least favorite. The combat definitely feels very slow, especially after playing a lot of DKS3 which pretty much goes in the complete opposite direction.

The Flood / Re: I checked myself into a mental hospital
« on: December 22, 2019, 04:28:41 PM »
Yep. Before insurance, the 4 day stay was $5,000. That's not including ER, either ambulance, doctor, bloodwork, etc.
This is why I hesitate to visit the hospital. The cost of medical care in the US is astronomical. I had a seizure a couple of months ago most likely due to an electrolyte imbalance and it cost over 5K even though I only stayed a couple of hours. I think the ambulance ride alone was probably 3K. And I didn't have insurance at the time so it's all on me to pay.

It's such an awful thing to do for people with mental illness. Slap someone with a bill for thousands, that surely won't make them any more suicidal than they already are.

Also, ayy finally hit mythic. Only took 5 and a half years.

I'm probably like one of two people that still posts there sometimes.

The Flood / Re: Has anyone ever composed their own music?
« on: December 19, 2019, 04:30:39 PM »
On the subject of this thread though, I've only ever played around in Fruity Loops studio and made some crappy little beats/songs. I really regret not learning to play any instrument because I definitely think I have a mind for creating music. (Probably developed from growing up around my dad who's a bassist that played Jazz, Flamenco, and Metal.)

Well I can at least understand that perspective.

From a very young age I've always had an extremely strong desire to create, and visual art just happened to be the medium I gravitated to more than anything. I definitely feel like you can tell a story or convey a message through art forms other than writing. They just leave a lot more room for subjective interpretation, I would say.

The absolute grind involved with mastering an art form is definitely very daunting but I guess I just want what's at the end of that grind so much that I can't bring myself to give up (even though external factors are creating some serious roadblocks).

You didn't just start out as a great writer I would assume, so did you not feel the same way when you were developing that skill or is it just something you managed to get through and don't want to have to experience again?

if i'm gonna spend any amount of time making something artistically, it has to be good, otherwise it's a waste of time
Then how do you start learning any art form? You have to spend time sucking at any craft until you eventually start to improve unless it happens to be the rare instance where you are just naturally more talented at something.

we're trying to remove him from office, that's what

i know you said that already, but then in the same sentence, you said that you weren't sure, so i decided to remind you

imagine if we as a people only tried to accomplish things that were easy or expected
Even though you know it's pretty much certain that the senate will not remove him so it's a vain attempt? I can understand trying it if you have nothing to lose, but it seems like Democrats do have a lot to lose in attempting this. There's no guarantee that voters they need to win over for 2020 are going to respond positively to this.

I don't think it's practical to make such a risky move in the hopes of what is essentially winning the political lottery.

I feel like this is just going to rally support from his base.

I don't think anyone expects the Republican led senate to actually remove him from office, so I'm not sure what they're trying to accomplish here.

I have an immense desire to achieve a high level of skill in the various areas of drawing/art I am interested in, but the chronic health condition I have sucks all the motivation and drive I could have right out of me most of the time.

I don't really feel like I can't do it, I just know it will take a ton of work. It took me about 3 years to get to where I am with drawing female faces when it could've just taken 3 months if I had actually put in the effort and treated practicing as if it were a full time job. Lord knows I have all the time in the world for it.

Most of my favorite music is instrumental so lyrics aren't something I have to be concerned about as much.
you wouldnt happen to know any electronic jazz artists?
Not sure what the differences are between electronic jazz, lo-fi, trip-hop etc. are but some of my favorite artists in that vein are Jinsang and AstroLogical.

May 21, 1991.

Some shops here do high prices month before Black Friday to then make a "discount" and profit from hype

didn't he live in canada? health care is free nigga just walk into the local hospital
Pretty sure he was in the hospital, or a hospice.

There wasn't really anything more that could've been done apparently.

There's something about how he's rendered that doesnt sit right with me that looks too fake
He looks highly cartoonish. The main reason for the original design was trying to bridge the gap between cartoon and realism, but I think most people would rather he look like he doesn't quite belong than like an unsettling nightmare instead.

Starting to see that this isn't going to be quite as serious as it first seemed like.
