Post by: Manimal on January 01, 2019, 11:14:10 AM
A new year, a new Chit Chat thread. Let's chit, let's chat and let's make way more pages than last year's 32.

Only 32? There were some quiet spots during the year weren't there? Ah well...
CHIT CHAT 2019! 

I started my year by eating cookies and reading the last episode of Noblesse :ohmy: Almost can't believe it. The webtoon actually finally finished...

What about everyone else?

Well, 2018 also saw a rise in non chitchat activities. So I think that's probably a win for us.

I rang it in at the big KC ball drop downtown. Pretty good time, if not utterly exhausting. Got a pair of shutter shades out of the deal though, so pretty good all 'round.

Well happy 2019 to you all. Its been a steady one for me, been ill as all hell since the 27th so just getting over that before I throw myself headfirst into my resolutions. How about you guys? Got anything you want to do over the next 12 months?

Post by: Robin Ryuu on January 02, 2019, 05:07:47 PM
Well I'm trying to convince myself to write at least a paragraph of one my stories every day. And possibly post em as a light novel over on tapas once a month or so so that I have a reason to not procrastinate. We'll see how that goes I guess.

hope everyones resolutions work out!!

Ah yeah I'm with you both in terms of trying to increase my output and productivity. I'm going to try and be more active on here this year as I found that seemed to be the best motivator for me.

Seeing others hard work inspired me to get on with my own. Plus I can actually log into my account on my phone again, which helps massively.

It's my phone browser. I've had it with a few sites where it was auto filling passwords and not allowing me to enter it manually . I've sorted it now though just needed to tamper with it

been doing more laborious stuff in the garden lately, I barely have the strength to draw this last week from being too worn out :(
I can still sketch, as sketches are sketchy, but I dont have the control to do inking or linearts, so I'm producing a whole bunch of stuff that's waiting to be finished as always @_@
it'll probably be another month before the garden job is done but it'll be good when it's done. basically we're doing landscaping and raised flower beds and stuff. lots of digging and sawing wood and stuff.

Hey, it's always the right time to drink in some timezone.

@suuper how exactly do you raise flower beds? How much of the work is mechanical? Are we talking super-villain mansions you're landscaping or regular folk?

Don't burn out, but don't get too tempted to drop out of the sketching game completely. It's ridiculous how bad you can backslide when you stop drawing haha.


I've been dragging my feet like an idiot. I'm not impressed. Going to go ham on my regimens now and try to do more. I can't believe I'm still like this after last year. It's a curse.

just my own garden so nothing special there :)

basically its building a huge wooden box the size and height of a bed and filling it with dirt. all carpentry and hard labour XD we're using heavy materials so its heavy going. it's more muscle burn out than art burn out lol
I've been neglecting my regimes a bit though.

I keep on starting my regimen on random pieces of paper and completely lost track. I'm just starting a new bunch by from scratch.

I like Celsius just because you know anything negative is cold XD
honestly as a "scientist" I prefer Kelvin because 0 is 0.
I was taught a quick basic conversion for C to F, double and add 30. you get close enough for most things.
Title: Re: Chit Chat 2019
Post by: Equil on February 09, 2019, 06:45:40 AM
I like celsius because its what I grew up with and learnt, so makes a lot more sense to me.
Title: Re: Chit Chat 2019
Post by: Coryn on February 09, 2019, 09:58:45 AM
Anything below 0 may be cold, but y'all look at 20 and think "warm"? Really? How often do you need to know the boiling point of water in every day Life? Freaking never. And i get using celcius for science, but it just does not help for your average joe. and as you point out, it's much better to use Kelvin then anyway!

And your map is incorrect Vacant my friend, because there are still countries in Africa and Asia that use imperial. And don't sit up on that British high horse either! I know you people can't commit to either system of measurements! You just opted for a bastard child of the two!

And while we're there, y'all measure weight in increments of 14 pounds! That makes so much less sense than anything we use in America! At least base 12 is a thing! (And arguably better than base 10, if we could commit to it)
Title: Re: Chit Chat 2019

You got to steer away from "bite sized" content for a while. Our brains adjust to the length of content we consume, so when you're doing nothing but looking at memes (or whatever), your brain starts saying "yeah! More small stuff!"

So yeah, get off Twitter for a while, spend your time taking on longer stuff.

Title: Re: Chit Chat 2019
Post by: MahluaandMilk on March 13, 2019, 05:25:58 PM
Small update:

tw: discussion of smoking
Y'know, since this forum is technically PG/PG-13 and smoking cigarettes is usually an 18+ type deal...
I used to smoke cigarettes and then vaped after that. Even though I "quit" a while back, my cravings have been stirred up, likely due to stress. A friend of mine suggested smoking herbs (like catnip and lavender--please note that I do not condone smoking marijuana where it is illegal), and that's actually been working well for me. No tobacco, no nicotine, no carcinogen filters, plus the act of holding something between my fingers and inhaling smoke is enough to sort of trick my brain out of its funk.

So like, if you're looking for ways to shave off cigarette smoking, I recommend trying it. Also rolling your own cigarettes is way cheaper anyway.

DISCLAIMER: inhaling any kind of smoke or vapor into your lungs is inherently harmful, and although some items may be "safer", that does not mean that they are "safe" proper. Don't start, kids.
Title: Re: Chit Chat 2019
Post by: legomaestro on March 14, 2019, 05:42:47 AM
What is this? A wild Mahlua appeared.

Oh jeez I think I've had worst discussions without considering that. I keep on thinking everyone is the same age. Wait! Don't remind me I'm not a teenager anymore. Please. NOOOOOO

Ahem

Spoiler
Truly only ever been a 'social' smoker. I 100% do it only for the aesthetic feel of smoking. Haven't really ever felt the nicotine thing. But I feel this nice, fluffy 'wall' between myself and my emotions and that's OK.

The cigarette rolling thing is super popular where I'm at. Taxes are murder on the wallets of career smokers, so they learn it. Now I've gotta tell you I love seeing girls smoke for some silly reason (They look soooo coool) But them rolling cigarettes with one hand and ish makes me drool. Also looks cool when dudes do it because it's a high art, but I don't know man. Just how.

I try and only ever come up with messes.

I'm on the fence about vaping. Ray Velcoro puts it best https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EL3AuyOfBtI

But the smooke! It's so much! And cheaper I hear. So yeah on the fence but understand.

How much does it cost to get the liquid stuff?
Title: Re: Chit Chat 2019
Post by: Coryn on March 14, 2019, 07:45:01 AM
Ah man, I would not condone getting into vaping either Lego. Vaping liquid has some real nasty *censored* in it too. It's a prime case of the law not moving fast enough to keep up with the product. There's a lot of talk of "no long term health problems", but the stuff hasn't been on the market long enough for long term health problems to occur. Just remember how long it took people to figure out cigarettes were bad for you. History repeats and all that.

Herb cigarettes are definitely a way to progress. If only to cut the tobacco out. And look, I definitely partake in the occasional smoke, so I can't judge, but if you have a habit, it's seriously worth considering how to break it.
Title: Re: Chit Chat 2019
Post by: MahluaandMilk on March 14, 2019, 10:56:51 PM
And honestly the first step is to recognize that it is a habit, and it probably is an addiction (in my case), and to examine your urge from that perspective. It's like a parasite in your brain as opposed to something you really want. But man I feel on the aesthetic, Lego.

Gotta say, though, any product like vaping that isn't even required to provide an ingredients list should be scrutinized and not trusted. Although I used to vape as well.

For me it's not really a nicotine thing either, at least I don't think. In fact, cigarettes have always made me feel pretty gross when I have hit the nicotine high. I don't really like being high, as I've discovered. But the act of smoking itself feels empowering, and that is where the addiction comes from for me.

So yeah, just...to all the non-smokers out there: you are beautiful and perfect as you are please never change this aspect of yourself.

Oh my. That's kind of...wonderful really. I almost want to become a $5 Patron of that. Sorry guys we aren't playing stupid Senji again, and forget about Talisman, it's Carly Rae time...I like it.   

Me and my friend went to the real Chinese restaurant in town, like you know not just chicken balls but food I've never even seen before. They do something on the weekend where they have a ton of dishes and you check what you want. Dim Sum. It's my belief that they put chicken feet on the menu just to mess with Westerners. Just to laugh at us try to eat them. and we tried to eat them. and we failed. But everything else was cool and it was like an actual new taste for some stuff, plus it was a small unsuspecting place. A possible successor to the Polish restaurant that I will never get over.

Though like I said the best pierogis I've had since the Polish restaurant where at the Japanese all you can eat place. I bet you only in my city would you hear someone say "they have good pierogis at the Japanese place".

There aren't any decent Japanese places near me at all. I would love an all you can eat one for sure.

well I found my dusty Rubik's cube yesterday and gave it a spin. After relearning all the moves I can just about solve in under 3 minutes. My old record as a kid was 1:50 so I'm hoping I can smash that and get at least under a minute. Also I don't feel like drawing at all. Well I've drawn a lot lately so meh.

So this is the best thing ever when it happens at the shop.

Someone was selling CD's, he was pretty goofy but already. Talking about how he was going to get so wasted he'd piss himself and go skeet shooting. Anyway he had Van Halen II so I was like, "cool this is a good album, lots of good songs like D.O.A." (I always flex my knowledge by mentioning the obscure songs on the albums so people know I know, like a dink) and at the exact same time we both started to hum the riff of D.O.A. It was cosmic, it was true magic in real life.

and then today someone was like "ya I like early Sabbath, you know that one song that sounds like an old World War II machine gun" and I was like "Oh Children Of The Grave, you know the one that goes ba-banahnahnahnah" then he was all "baaa" then I was all doing the drum fill on the counter and soon enough we did the whole intro, looking like idiots no doubt but sometimes real magic happens in life if you let it.   

Don't really know why I posted this but you know.

Specific Records put out Haru Nemuri's Haru to Shura on record for sale this morning at 2 AM, only 500 copies. I woke up at 5:40 and there was 4 copies left, ticked down to 3 right there and by the time I frantically typed in my info on my phone and when I placed my ordered there was 1 left. They're repressing it in May but nice to have gotten it, first press, in the zero hour anyway. and for $40 shipped it's a pretty good price for an amazing record. and another J-Pop album on record as well...always great. Just hope it's a good pressing.

There's nothing worse than paying for a brand new record only to find out that it's all jankey. Like excuse me sir or madam I paid for that.


Hasn't happened to me yet, but I've got some pretty poor cheapo pressings. Like Teenage Dream where there are only 2-3 songs a side on 2 records and it sounds worse than the CD. New press records are often mediocre I find, or just passable, but necessary to get certain albums/artists in my collection. No new press records I've got have matched up to the sheer quality of the Beatles mono reissues though, those are God tier, absolutely amazing packaging and pressing. I am worried about this Haru album though since I was in such a rush I somehow didn't put my house number just the street. I emailed Specific Recordings and someone replied but than Bandcamp sent an email saying it was shipping with the incomplete address. So...I hope I actually get it. 

BUT ON DISCOGS. The fricking dingus dink I ordered Kusokawa Party from hasn't done anything in 2 weeks, no notice of shipping or anything. I sent a message and will do the seller not responding thing tomorrow if I get no reply. He had a 100% feedback but then someone recently left a negative saying basically "no update". So...might've just lost some money there if that doesn't work out. This will be my last order on Discogs if I get it or not.

Related: went to a record store on main street. Found one little tray of CDs. Guy at the register wasn't even sure if they were selling them. Got Hour of 13's album the Ritualist for $8. If I had more money to blow I woulda also grabbed two albums from NC-based thrash metal band Seducer.

Carly Rae's coming to my city! Last time she was here was a few months before that song took off outside Canada. I was hoping she'd come here at some point. Should be an enjoyable show, I just hope she keeps "Emotion" and "Let's Get Lost" in the setlist. and if she could do "Curiosity" (which was a hit on local radio) & "The One", "Cry" + "Roses"...that'd be perfect.
 
and Iron Maiden in Winnipeg the month before this. Thankfully they're doing the old songs, I mean I like the new stuff but you go to see Iron Maiden for the classics not 12 minute drags like "The Red And The Black". They even went for a while without playing "Run To The Hills". All I want them to do is "Children Of The Damned", "The Prisoner" and "Infinite Dreams". A man can dream.

haha well I am indeed very frugal, but I also live with my parents which reduces my living expenses considerably. I do still pay a rent but it's more of a contribution to expenses.
It is also a well paying school, about 20% more than my last job  (^_^)v

Just a minor hiccup with the domain. We're back to business as usual now!

Had an existential crisis when the site went down. That would've been worse than when photobucket kamikazed

Why this website doesn't have a discord? would be easier for communication and posting art/books.

It’s actually had several though I’m not sure that any are still active.

Yeah, they come and go. The main thing is that if we have an official discord, then somebody has got to moderate it, and we simply don't have that kind of time. (I take this opportunity to remind/inform that MR's mods and admins do this gig for fun, not because we're getting paid (we aren't))

Its not just only nobody getting paid for this but some has to pay to keep things running smoothly. That glitch was related to that too. Godaddy decided they have to make sure my credit card is mine and that i'm the one who using it. They wanted me to use the same PC I used my old credit card. But I was out of city so it had to wait till I return.

There are discord, Skype groups, DA, Twitter and even FB Fan pages but those are ony few used time to time. For example I did post about this issue on our FB page. For some reason only one member contacted me about this. lol

The discord things, like the forum have always worked on the basis that members participate.  There is no top-down thing where we declare how the forum should work and function, but rather members come together and share their projects and ideas and through mutual participation the forum chugs along. Same with discord, skype and whatever. Just post there regularly and talk to people and they'll become as active as you like.

(I'm calling myself out with this too though haha)
