IT'S IN YOUR HANDS WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH ME!

Edit: I haven't even mentioned what brand I got with me. This is a delightful and highly enjoyable whiskEy called "Connemara" which is a peated single malt whiskEy which taste is described with "the smell of a chimney with a hint of dry leather". Fuckin' A+

Edit2: A jolly good night to all of you. :love:



Glad you're okay :P


Pussy Fucker. that is as far as my dirty mind got.

I swear Joe, you're just one big teddy bear.

Just graduated infantry school homos. It's been 4 months too long without this fucking forum.

Dyldo 2012-11-15 10:34

You've been gone for 4 months?

drawn&quartered 2012-11-15 11:03

Well, 3 and a half.

I just got my jungle carpet python to eat a rat and I'm stoked. I know this is meaningless information, but that's exactly what the RTT needs; pointless shit, and since I'm excited about it, you're ALL GOING TO FUCKING HEAR IT.

It's only notable because this particular subspecies of snake often has an annoying habit of refusing rats as a food item. This in turn means, when the snake inevitably grows to 6-7+ feet, you're feeding it 6-8 mice in a single, obscenely expensive and temporally inefficient meal instead of just one reasonably sized rat. For future Chris, this is even better news than switching to Geico.

Chris, did you hear about the woman who got into her bed in her hotel room and felt pain in her foot? She had a python attached to her heel and they had to beat it to get it off her. It sounds like a terrifying experience. How the heck did it get there?

d'q' - So do you feel all edjamacated n stuff? Thanks for your service.

BassBehemoth 2012-11-16 20:52

Sup G's.

Nah, I mean, I read weird snake stories now and again but I don't make it a habit to follow sensationalist news reports about these things.

Oh holy shit, they released a preview of the upcoming Devourment album :eek: It sounds so brutal.

that is true, though ^

In recent news: it is hard to make money in music. wait... recent news?? I knew I had this coming! Even when I get work... the money seems to be absent. Right after college I was actually making money writing music, but now I'm back in a slump because my partner and I got kicked off of a feature film we were scoring. Don't trust producers, people.

Now I'm back to sending out a million emails and submitting music to websites that I hope will use my shit. The good thing about being part of a company that makes trailer music is that the more music you write, the better your chances are of your music being used. I think this will become my new strategy.

First person to talk about their music career gets a big, sloppy kiss and a scat job from your truly. Except for Paddy.

Dyldo 2012-11-20 12:17

I have been applying a lot to do sound design at video game companies. Nothing yet. I've pretty much forgotten about equated money with music which is nice. I'd much rather make music as an expression of whatever I have than as a job.

Please hire me.

JoeYngVai 2012-11-20 15:24

Yea the ultimate goal is, of course, to make money doing what you love. I've been asking people about music in video games but haven't gotten anywhere. Asking composers doesn't really help, because they are not going to let you have their job. My friend emailed Garry Schyman (Bioshock series) because we did some score printing work for him not too long ago and his advice was just to keep networking... lol. Not too useful since that is why we reached out to him in the first place.

Anyway... what have you been doing to make money on the side? Is it at all sound/music related? Even trying to find a part time side job is difficult because my resume is all music!! haha. damnit. I think I'll just have to keep on pushing until something comes up... and apply EARLY for seasonal jobs. I swear I will hook you up one day, Dylan, in hopes that you or somebody else will do the same once they strike gold haha.

yeah, I wish they would tell us something about that. and listening to metal has never been so great after no music for a few months. holy crap :vampire:

L,B'XXX 2012-11-22 08:11

For over a month now I've been co-praise music leader at my church. No monetary pay, but I'm singing in front of people which is cool and scary at the same time. I've only had to do it alone once, but I survived it. Hey, I've got a forgiving boss so it's all good. :) I've also written and read for a couple services. Thanks for helping me with my confidence.


Happy Thanksgiving to all you turkeys. XXX

At least you made it far enough to talk to him! I've had pretty much the same experience when trying to make contacts "just make contacts" - asswipe that's what I'm doing.

Well I've had a day job for the past 4 years but the company just went under so now I'm jobless. I've been hitting up some people I've worked on music for before but nothing has come out of it yet, a lot of "I might have something for you! Lets do lunch!". To be honest I'm not trying very hard nowadays, haha.
