The THX Sound

Did you ever wonder who came up with The THX Sound ? And after having read this, how much time and effort went into it? Speaking of that, The Music Thing blog is addictive, if you go there, you might not ever come back. Just a forwarning...

This is the guy that Funtwo was trying to emulate(see previous post for details).

Well, I guess 7.6 million people can't be wrong, can they? I was going to post the video, but youtube wasn't letting me. It's nice to see someone get their fifteen minutes, but yes, this is definintely receiving a wee bit more attention than is deserved

WindowsXP Tip of the Moment/XP Why?

I guess I am getting lazy at my advancing age, but this seems like a great way to edit your WindowsXP registry, without actually opening up a dos prompt. The most common features are addressed in the FAQ. Basicly, if you don't know what it is, don't mess with it. One you wouldn't think of, is the delete pagefile feature. Setting it to delete on auto will hang your computer upon shutdown for at least a minute or two, so unless complete privacy is a sticking point with you, don't click on this feature. I have tried the program out, and a lot of the settings, especially the one's I really wanted, didn't take. Basically, if you want to try to edit Windows to remove all the ignorant things Microsoft has embedded into your os, without the hassle of manually editing your registry, this is for you. If you are confused at this point, or don't really know what I am talking about, then please disavow any knowledge of this conversation.
Have a day...

This is a quick post, to clarify a couple of things, for people who have asked me things privately, since my last post. Yes, I basically live in Radford, Va. My abode is centered between Virginia Tech, where the infamous Vick kids balled(insert your own innuendos randomly), links to follow later, (edit; Michael and Fredo) and RU. Yes, Radford holds the record for beer sold to a single retailer in a given month, per-capita (woking on independantly providing a link, thank you to everyone who attempted to substantiate this) and yes, RU, Radford University was the top "party" school in the nation for a while. My point was that I live in a quaint community, having just moved from the outskirts of a major metropolitan area, and things are the same here as any other area with a high(again, oh nevermind) concentration of college kids. Give me a day or so, I will be able to point out the irony in all of this, trust me. Later! - Manhunt nabs 'weird' escaped prisoner - Aug 21, 2006

A couple good ol' boys...Never meanin' no harm...

Damn man, i just moved to this rural enclave recently, and in the last 6 months or so, that makes about the fifth or sixth cold-blooded murder to occur within about a five mile radius of my house. Of course, I am the only person I know here that isn't armed to the teeth. Oh, that reminds me, my newest toy (More on why I need that in subsequent posts)! Anyway, everyone here wanted to know how he managed to pull off a stunt like Joshua's at the end of Lethal Weapon 1. Not quite that glamorous, but about as myopic...How did Morva escape? The point here, if there is one, is that control is an illusion. But being safe? It's something we all take for granted, i guess. The part I think is funny, (one of them, anyway) is they told people around here to look for him, wearing a tye-dye, and khakis, on the Virginia Tech campus, scaring the bejesus out of all the incoming frosh on their first day of class. He was actually in his underwear, bare-chested, and barefoot. Well anyway, more fun stuff to follow!(edit, in case you missed this, the updated version of the story can be found) here.

Worst of MySpace

Well, I suppose this is as good a place to start as any. Anyone who has ever been to myspace, knows that the content can vary widely. It isn't all just teenage girls whining about life in the burbs, garage bands trying to get noticed, and middle-aged people trying to be hip or, hook up with the aforementioned girls. No, the other 6 or 8 percent are seamlessly designed, slick promotional vehicles for big name artists, eg. Audioslave, Army of Anyone(STP fallout Deleo brother's soon-to-be band), etc. They have streaming audio, video, and are easy on the eyes, what a template based website was meant to look like. This site is about all the rest...
Worst of MySpace As it says, "The disasters of social networking". Enjoy kiddies.

Well this is screwing up bad already, like I said, it should prove interesting, especially as this is a beta-build. But, I have fixed the xml problems, so anything else that goes askew is completely unexpected, unfounded, and most of all, uncharted! So... let the games begin! Hopefully my first real post will follow tomorrow.
