art, music, etc. / Live Performances
« on: December 11, 2008, 01:44:28 PM »
Didn't want to muck up the "Obscure Music Videos" thread, so I created this one.

Any band or artist can sound good in the studio with the proper producer and effects to mask the flaws of the talentless cacophony. The live show is a great indicator of how talented a band really is. They can't edit and piece together guitar tracks like a puzzle, they can't really double track vocals to thicken them unless they have pre-recorded samples they play, the drummer can't double track drums, and the lead guitarist has to either remember how to play the solo pieces he's written or else he has to be proficient enough to improvise it on the spot without it sounding out of place.

Anyhow, post your favorite live performance videos here. There's buttloads of them all over YouTube, sometimes I lose all track of time browsing through these damn things.

Came across this while killing some time on YouTube. I've always thought Lynyrd Skynyrd was one of the best live bands ever. They weren't very showy and hyper on stage, but they always played their songs as well if not better than the studio recordings. Here's a black a white video of them performing Gimme Back My Bullets. The video says it's from March of 1976, but I believe it could be from sometime in late 1975.

Quake / Hallowed be thy player name
« on: December 05, 2008, 01:28:29 PM »
I've had people ask me before, "What the hell is a Focalor?" I know I've seen lots of other folks player names and thought, "What the hell is a <insert weird player name here>?"

So my question to you all is... what does your player name mean? What is the story behind it, why did you choose that name?

I'll get things started:

Focalor is the name of a demon which is recorded in the Goetia (The Lesser Key of Solomon). He is the 41st of the 72 spirits which comprise the Shemhamforash. His position is a Great Duke of Hell. His duty is to sink and destroy ships of war, slay men, and drown them in the sea. His power is over the winds and the seas. The name "Focalor" is actually an anagram of the second name of another demon, Lucifuge Rofocale, one of the three archdemons elected by Lucifer himself as Prime Minister and recorded in the Grand Grimoire of Pope Honorius (which implies a kind of intellectual relationship).

I chose the name Focalor because I thought it sounded cool and unusual, plus I'm kind of an occultnik. It also made choosing an avatar a snap. My avatar is the Sigil of Focalor, or the magical seal which is a representation of his name. Sigils are like keys, they are required in rituals in order to successfully conjure that particular spirit.

Your turn. :badgrin:

Jokes / Washing dishes in the oven

I didn't really know where to put this, but since it was slightly comical in a redneck kinda way, I plopped it here.

I wonder what the exact process was that lead to this genius ( :exqueezeme: ) discovery. Apparently you can use the heat dry setting on your dishwasher to bake food. Almost sounds like a corny Jeff Foxworthy joke: "If you've ever baked a casserole in the dishwasher on the heat dry setting... you might be a redneck."

If anyone actually has the balls to try this, post your results here please.

Trouble Shooting / HALP! MY ALIASES R BROKED!
« on: October 10, 2008, 04:05:56 PM »
I'm an alias noob at the moment. I'm trying to write a series of aliases that will make the crosshair change colors when it fires. I'm only using it for the railgun. Ideally, I want it to change to red when it's fired, blue as it's reloading, and green when it's ready to fire again. I guess I'll paste what I've come up with so far. This is in a seperate cfg file that execs when I hit my railgun key. I have another cfg that execs when I switch to any other weapon that re-binds mouse1 back to "+attack".

bind mouse1 "+railgun_attack"
alias +railgun_attack "+attack; w2; crosshair 1; w2; crosshair 2; w2; crosshair 3"
alias -railgun_attack "-attack"
alias w1 "wait; wait; wait; wait; wait; wait; wait; wait; wait; wait;"
alias w2 "w1; w1; w1; w1; w1; w1; w1; w1;"

This causes a slight pause as it switches to each crosshair after I fire, but it's also causing my game to lag out every time I fire. Any numbskull can see that I have 80 occurances of the "wait" command between the crosshairs and that's what is causing the lag. What I'm wondering is if there is some other command I can use to delay the input time of a following command in order to stretch out the time that these crosshairs appear before they change.

Trouble Shooting / number pad binds
« on: September 21, 2008, 05:12:43 PM »
My old hard disk flaked out on me, so I lost my old config. I had my weapons bound to the number pad keys on the right side of the keyboard. Does anyone know off hand what to bind those keys as? Something like:

bind NUM_PAD END "use blaster"
or
bind KP_END "use blaster"

Outdoor Activities / Gone Fishin'
« on: July 14, 2008, 06:18:09 PM »
I know theres some fellow fishermen 'round these here parts. This here's the fishin' thread, y'all. Throw on yer Jack Daniels or Budweiser hat, grab yer tackle box, and shoot the shit about fishin'!

Went fishing sunday night at the pond behind my house. I walked around the back yard for probably 20 minutes or so collecting crickets and grasshoppers for bait. I had about 30 little hoppers of various sorts, but mostly black crickets. I prefer the bigger green or brown grasshoppers though, they have hard shells over the meat of them that makes it a little harder for the fish to nibble them off the hook. Every time I put a cricket on the hook and tossed it out there, it wasn't sitting in the water for longer than 5 seconds before a good strong bite. I was catching bluegill and bream like it was going out of style. I must've caught 30 to 35 altogether. It's an old farm pond thats been stocked with bluegill, bream, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and channel catfish. I didn't manage to find any bass Sunday night, the bluegill population is much higher and they aren't nearly as cautious about what they go after. For bass, the best thing is large live minnows.

Anyway....

I was out there fishing last monday or tuesday night when I noticed that one of the catfish was continuously circling around the end of the fishing dock. The bluegill normally steer clear of the larger catfish like this one. So I set out my line in the path where I had seen him circling. He finally grabbed it. I gave the line a tug to set the hook. When I did, he darted off towards the middle of the pond at which point he snapped my line where the swivel was tied to it. I was fishing again friday night when I noticed him doing the same thing, circling near the end of the dock. I hooked him again, this time I fought with him for probably 2 minutes before he finally bit the hook in half. Keep in mind, I'm using an old late 70's or early 80's Zebco 33 with 12lb line and NO steel leader. Certainly not the best thing for trying to land a monster of a catfish. Sunday night, I used a thicker hook and stouter knots to attach the snap-swivel, hook, and to tie the loop end on the snell. I hooked him again. I fought with him for probably 20 minutes before he finally let up enough to allow me any slack to reel him in. He's probably 2 and a half feet long, 20 pounds or more. Yes, I threw him back. This is actually one of the medium sized catfish. Somewhere in there lurks a 4 footer, possibly even larger by now.

Outdoor Activities / Gardening Thread

As promised, here's a bunch of pics from my garden.

These are cantaloupe vines that I started from seed. By the end of the summer... I shouldn't have a driveway anymore, just a cantaloupe patch where my driveway USED to be.


Here's a closeup of one of the mellons that is beginning to form.


I started about 15 butternut squash seedlings, but only planted 6. Of those 6, only one survived. Probably a good thing, I planted about 12 last year and still have a huge basket full of butternut squash that I still haven't used. I've probably used 2 of them total since harvesting them all, hehe. Anyway, this is the butternut squash vine.


This is a closeup of one of the flowers near the base of the butternut squash vine. You can see the honey bees collecting pollen inside of it.


This is a closeup of one of the butternut squashes beginning to form.


These are my clusters of cucumber vines. I've already harvested quite a few from them. If I remember correctly, they are Marketmore 76, also started from seed.


These are my zucchini and yellow crookneck squash bushes. Some are doing a lot better than others for some weird reason. Yes, all these are from seed too. Everything in my garden is from seed.


Here's a closeup of one of the zucchinis as its growing.


This is my tomato and bell pepper plot. I have 20 individual tomato plants: 9 Roma, 3 Parks Whopper, 2 Sweet 100, 2 Beefmaster, 2 Bonnie Original, and 2 Mountain Pride (heirloom). I have pinestraw covering the ground around the tomato plants to hold moisture into the soil better. Makes weeding a bit of a pain in the ass, but I end up having to water them a lot less frequently. Some of these tomato plants are reaching 5+ feet tall.


Here are the bell pepper plants on the end of the row.


This is my plot of orka. I transplanted seedlings out to this loaction in mid-spring, but they were not hardened off properly and 90% of them died. In late-spring I sowed seeds directly into the soil since it was warm enough to promote positive germination. I haven't watered them as frequently as I should, otherwise they would probably be 5 times taller by now.


Here's some of the goodies I've harvest from my garden this past weekend.

He would've gone to the hospital sooner, but he thought it was just Joe Pesci.

Farewell, George. I'll miss your books.

Trouble Shooting / Older games, newer OS's
« on: June 21, 2008, 07:54:10 AM »
I installed my old game Redneck Rampage on this machine. It runs WinXP. Redneck Rampage came out in probably 95 or 96. It runs just fine on my old machine that runs Win98 still, but I'd like to have it on THIS one. It runs in a DOS box on 98. On this machine, when starting the game, it opens a DOS box but just STOPS. It will go no further. I haven't tried installing and trying to run other games that use the Build engine and run in DOS mode such as Shadow Warrior or Duke Nukem 3D. I figure they will probably do the same thing. Anybody know of a way to get these things to run on XP or am I just shit out of luck?

/dev/random / Smokers poll
« on: May 19, 2008, 03:28:05 PM »
Welcome to flavor country!


I began looking at some surveys conducted which showed the percentage of smokers by demographic and geographic location based on the brands they smoke. I know that probably more than half of us are smokers. Let's see what brand is the most popular among the Spleeners.

***If your brand is not listed, please reply stating your brand preference. I know you weird assed Canadians have your local brands. We Americans don't mind if you think your domestic smoke is better than good old Carolina and Virginia grown tobacco, more for us.
