  1. I saw him live last weekend. Amazing set, amazing show. This song was performed with SOFI. It was good with her in it and probably just as good without her. I used to just like deadmau5 but after seeing his live performance he's gone up a couple of points in my book.
  2. So the only difference between the MSI and the ASUS is the amount of storage space and the dedicated graphics? Just to clarify "light" gaming: I meant games that aren't graphics heavy. I'm a pretty casual gamer so do you think spending the extra $80-$100 on a dedicated graphics card is worth it or just save my money? I'm not too worried about the storage space, I have a 1TB external which is more than enough.
  3. Hey Everyone, I don't post in here often but I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the laptops listed below. I would say I'm moderately computer literate but I'm sure there are many more people here who are much more experienced. The computer would primarily be used for school/personal use (e.g. music, tv and movies) and some light gaming (nothing that would require an excellent graphics card). IF you do choose to comment and suggest one of the other please give me a reason. Thanks in advance! http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=59580&vpn=K53E%2DB1&manufacture=ASUS http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=61833&vpn=9S7%2D16G522%2D268&manufacture=MSI%2FMicroStar
  4. TV on the Radio - Nine Types of Light. I know I'm a week late, just got it today. The new single "Will Do" sounds amazing.
  5. Even if the shootings didn't happen Sarah Palin's website is inappropriate. I mean, just read the tagline. We've diagnosed the problem...help us prescribe the solution. It was only a matter of time before someone who thinks Sarah Palin is fantastic follows through with it. This guy was just crazy.

    Facebook

    This is only a concern to people who creep other profiles. I hardly visit friend's profiles and only read what comes up in my news feed which includes what happens between friends/mutual friends. Do I really care what other conversations my friends are having with people who I don't know? I didn't before Facebook, why should I now?

    Commuting

    I drive a 2008 Civic and it has pretty good mileage. My total commute to and from work totals 3 hours. The distance isn't that far, it's the crappy traffic. Everyone works in the city and there's one main bridge to get there so there's a harsh bottleneck effect. My Civic does pretty well though. I would say I average about 30mpg (I've calculated it over a dozen times just out of curiosity). I feel kind of bad having to commute and the amount of pollution I put out but I literally walked/biked/took the bus for 5 years while going to University so I hope it was enough to balance this out.
  8. Saw the midnight premiere. Super impressed with how closely it followed the books storyline. But...(see spoiler). [spoiler=Spoiler!]Although everyone who sees this movie will know about the little piece of mirror Harry holds and uses several times throughout the movie it would've been nice for them to take a couple of seconds out of a 3 hour movie to explain it.

  10. Maybe this? Thanks Google. I literally searched: "Movie where people travel back in time to watch disasters" http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3526401792/tt0104362
  11. I wonder if the RIAA will reimburse all the artists who lost money or just the record companies? Methinks the latter of the two which is why everyone loathes the music industry.
  12. Is it a memory stick? Or are you happy to see someone. Not me. Someone.
  13. Currently: Nothing Usually: Left pocket: Zune + headphones Right pocket: Cellphone + Keys (Don't worry it's an old flip phone). Back pocket: Wallet
  14. I listen to 5/6 of the artists you mentioned. Gotta check out more of Florence and the Machine. If people want to check out LCD Soundsystem I highly suggest listening to their first album. It's what got me hooked. Love LCD Soundsystem so much and for the longest time no one knew who I was talking about until I played Daft Punk is Playing at My House for them. Then everyone wanted to know more.

    Mr. Scruff

    Hey Everyone! So my favorite artist at the moment that I can't get enough of is Mr. Scruff. Some of you may know the song I posted below from Windows 7 release. Well I've been listening to Mr. Scruff's two albums a lot lately and I need more music similar to this style. It's kinda Jazzy/hip-hoppy. Doesn't really matter as long as it sounds similar or in the same taste. If you have any good recommendations I would love to hear them. If not, then just enjoy the video. [spoiler=Mr. Scruff - Kalimba]
  16. It sounds pretty good. Keep it up! I also love the song. My advice, though, is to invest some money into some recording equipment (at least a mic) if you want to continue showcasing your talent. It's definitely worth it.
  17. 1. Radiohead 2. My Morning Jacket 3. Jedi Mind Trick 4. Brandon Flowers 5. Gorillaz
  18. Brandon Flower's new album: Flamingo. Favorite track: Only the Young.
  19. I think it would be even worse to have kids and not care for them because you weren't ready to have them. If you're not having kids and you and your partner have agreed to not have them then you're not hurting anyone. On the other side, having kids when it's too late/hazardous to have them (e.g. women over the age of 40, or someone with a terminal disease etc). is also very selfish.
  20. Looks interesting. Now everyone's iPhone battery can last for even less time and be used for anything except phoning people. Huzzah!
  21. Den, what did the guy say when he interrupted the speaker when he mentioned Dungeoneering? It sounded rude (even if it wasn't his interruption was). Good video footage btw.
  22. You could add "Like a boss" to everything on people's lists and it'd be funny.
  23. You should put this on your resume if you actually get it done.
  24. You obviously didn't read through the whole topic you [bleep]. I'm not a whiny d-bag by disagreeing that this band sounds like the god-awful band "brokencyde"...Many times I told saru and others that I'm not saying Enter shikari is "the best band ever and better than every other band"...I'm simply trying to spread the word of what I consider to be a good band and see you're thoughts. I'm going to argue and disagree when people like saru make [developmentally delayed]ed posts like he did. Now your post has no relevance to what this thread is all about so either contribute something meaningful to the thread or go talk [cabbage] somewhere else you ass. I did read the entire thread and you still sound super whiny. You started jumping down everyone's throats as soon as they said one negative thing about this band. How does that NOT make you whiny? Saru said they sounded like another band and you criticized him. What's the point of discussing music if you're only willing to hear what you agree with? There's no such thing as a perfect band. Stop trying to make them one.
  25. You sound like a whiny d-bag. "aww people don't agree with my taste in music. Obviously, I pick the best bands and you don't." Get off your high horse.
