My kingdom for a simple way to extract audio from .flv files. >|||||

So Pandora has led me to discover that I like emo music.

Why do I like emo music guys

All the music I wind up liking, and it's the sort of stuff that people say, like, "dude, why do you like that whiny emo crap?" to. And it's weirding me out.

Like this, wtf
And this band is awesome, (but I already knew I liked them).

And even some stuff by Linkin Park, wut.

I don't care about the lyrics or anything, I just like the music. Pandora seems to be suggesting that "subtle use of vocal harmony" is the common thread between a very large number of the songs I like. They all seem to have this particular sound that I really like, and I don't pay attention to the lyrics. It cropped up in a lot of Nightwish-related stuff, too, which I like. "Minor Key tonality" is another one that pops up a lot.

So, in short, check out Pandora. You'll be surprised at what you like. O.o;;;

[School]

Took care of my FAFSA and my student housing application the other day. That's a relief, but also, holy shit is it surreal. It's like, seriously, I'm having an impossibly hard time imagining myself living in a dorm. And holy shit I'm going to be even further away from my friends than I already am! Aaaaagh nuuu ;;

At the same time, though, man am I glad I'm gonna have a meal plan. One less thing to worry about.

Incidentally, I didn't actually need to get another measles shot. My mom and I both misread my immunity records; the info for the first shot was transcribed from a different institution, so only the date was filled in-- which made it look blank unless you were paying attention. So, yay for not having to get stuck with needles?

[Project Oracle]

Also incidentally, I updated the Project Oracle page with info on a few new characters.

[Gaming]

Did I mention I got a copy of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons from my dad a week or two back? 'Cause I did. I've been screwing around linking back and forth between Ages and Seasons now that I can. Gives me a good excuse to replay Ages, now that I've finally found my fucking copy of it.

And now that I've played through both of them? I can say that Ages is definitively the better game. The season-changing mechanics of Seasons was interesting, and it had the better music of the two for the most part (not a small thing in my book), but the plot was dull as all hell. You can tell that Ages was made after Seasons, because it plays around with the plot a lot more; stuff actually happens between the beginning and end of the game, instead of just having you going around collecting MacGuffins. And the villain in Ages is more interesting; Onox is just kind of a generic "rawr I am a bad guy" type villain, but Veran is... well, she's also that, but her methods are a lot more interesting.

I imagine most of the plot of Seasons was written back when it was still going to be a remake of the first Zelda game; whereas Ages was probably written after they decided not to do that, so they realized that they actually had to make the plot workable on its own merit.

Still, I'm glad I have both games now. They make for a pretty interesting experience as a pair.

Nintendo had a deal for Wii owners that originally bought the Internet Channel for 500 Wii Points; now that they're offering it for free again, they give you a free NES game-- so long as the game in question costs 500 Wii Points, of course. I'm a little annoyed at this; I would much rather have just had my Wii Points refunded, but what can you do. So I got Ghosts and Goblins.

Wouldn't you know, I can't get past the first area. Fucking flying... gargoyle... thing.

[Computer]

...is still falling apart. The down key is pretty much fucked now; it works about 30% of the time. Firefox is randomly crashing; I have no idea if that has to do with the computer or what, but it's annoying. It still has problems with overheating. And it's still got the hinge problem I'm sure I've complained about here already.

On the upside, I'm probably going to be using my student loan to get a new one... so there's that.

[Music]

I got a hold of Chip Tuned Rockman. It's pretty cool; not revolutionary, but cool nonetheless.

Also, I figured out how to rip sound effects and music from WoW's data files. This is very useful, especially the sound effects.

[Other]

GUYS it's actually starting to get cold. Like, I finally had to turn on my heater and I got the urge to make hot cocoa the other day type cold. Man oh man do I ever love autumn. Because who doesn't love freezing to death?

SO WHAT'S EVERYONE'S HALLOWEEN PLANS?

I still have nothing. Like every Halloween for the past... how many fucking years? Ugh. I can't tell you what I'd give to be out of the house and not having to deal with trick-or-treaters.

Oh YouTube

It's no secret that music is the main thing I use YouTube for.

So I took a look at a few of my favorite videos today.

these )

ARE WE NOTICING A PATTERN, GUYS?

Literally impossible to find. >:E

It's supposedly from Ragnarok Online, but I didn't find a track with that title in its OST. Most searches for the title seem to turn up results related to the video where I first heard the song. (This, starting at 6:40)

This is very frustrating.

Can anyone help? DX

GUYS.

Holy.

Shit.

When did Spyro get epic?

And what happened to the annoyingly-voiced dragon that went on bland platforming adventures in the days of yore?

So, I am now torrenting the Super Smash Bros. Brawl soundtrack. For great justice.

Two gigabytes. This thing is fucking epic.

EDIT: I got impatient and cancelled the torrent, so I could start downloading it from FFShrine. Finished part one (it rocks, by the way), and am currently downloading part two. Oh, man, I'm loving this so much. This game is a Video Game music fanatic's HEAVEN.

One more month...

Hehehe...

So... I know that last year I waited for the anniversary of my new LJ to make a new background and such, but inspiration struck, so my journal now has a shiny new look. ^^ I based it off of a poem that I'm writing right now, you can see a little excerpt (which is also the temporary title) in the corner. All of it was done from scratch except for the image of the Angel statue, and even then I drew the tears in myself. ^o^ So, take a look and tell me what you think. XP
I should probably mention that the background is made specifically for 1024x768 resolution, so if that's not your screen resolution, it probably won't look right. Sorry. ;o;

Also, that meme is just too fun, so I'm leaving it up for just one more post. >>'

Under a cut for the health and wealth of Friends pages everywhere. )

Again...

Re-posting cuz I think everyone missed the last one. :\

Open whatever program/device you play music with and set it to playon shuffle. Write down a maximum of two lines of song lyrics of eachsong and mash them all together into a Frankenstein's monster!song forcracktastic results. The limit is 20 songs. Also, your friends have to guess the name of the songs the lyrics come from.

14 songs.

My fall will be for you,
my love will be in you
Try to find out what makes you tick
as I lie down, sore and sick, do you like that?
So kiss me goodbye,
Honey I'm gonna make it out alive (Cobra Starship - Bring It)
fighting with microphones, freezing down to my bones,
and to top it all off, I'm with you!
Hold it together, birds of a feather,
nothing but lies and crooked wings
Mother, lookin' at me,
tell me, what do you see? (t.A.T.u. - All The Things She Said [Ya Soshla S Uma])
In the light of the life that I have found,
it's coming down
Now at last, she's dead and gone!
Now at last there's joy throughout the land (Wicked - No One Mourns The Wicked)
How to lie to yourself and thereby to everyone else,
how to keep smiling when you're thinking of killing yourself
I need you while my piano gently weeps,
music gonna save your life (ROSE - Speed Over Beethoven)
So let's build a caravan across the sand
Let's find a way to escape this dry land
I'm terrified of these four walls,
these iron bars can't hold my soul in (Nickelback - Savin' Me)
Staring at the blank page before you,
open up the dirty window (Natasha Bedingfield - Unwritten)
Now I'm stuck with a feeling in the pit of my soul,
guess I should have had a little self-control

So, yeah. That's two lines per song, in case you were wondering. I purposely picked songs that would be hard for you guys to guess, but threw in some easy ones too. XP
