Out of Eden & The Katinas - By my Side

(Can only find 3 of their tunes on Limewire now) argh!

// Doreen / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

/me thinks he is glad he's off to La La Land now

// craeonics / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

hehe! Don't worry I only give up my nasty tunes on Sundays...

Besides these guys I seen today apparently only have 2 good tunes.

// Doreen / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

*droooool* message board!

/me is listing to La Femma Chocolat by Olivia Ruiz

// Pepijn / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

FemmE Chocolat. And it even has a clip (bad clip) [link]

Will we have the option to embed youtube videos here?

// Pepijn / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

Oh and it would be nice if the "your name" box would remember my name, or are there strong objections against that?

Now listening to Daler Mehndi - Tunak Tunak Tun - [link] (don't ask)

// Pepijn / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

Hmm boy you dutch sure find some strange vids? though those two PKtje are a lil better than that promised land one dutchy posted. hehe

// Doreen / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

I ordered that Promised Land cd, you know.

Auto-embedding YouTube/images is an option I might implement.

// craeonics / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

Doreen: someone else found them for me. All I did was receiving the mp3 file in my inbox..

craeonics: awesome

// Pepijn / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

Pink Martini with Je ne veux pas travailler

[link]

// pepijn / 549 weeks and 1 day ago

Oh boyyy. hehe

Anyways you guys this is a good vid over here:

[link]

Mmmm mm mmm!

// Doreen / 549 weeks and 20 hours ago

/me clicks

Argh!

// craeonics / 549 weeks and 20 hours ago

That's horrible Doreen!

This on the other hand is awesome: Polysics (featuring 11yr old Mao Murakami) [link]

// Pepijn / 549 weeks and 18 hours ago

hehe! ohhh noooo!

I can't stand that myspace thing (and never will) but this youtube is pretty cool, I'm going to have to go hunt down some good vids after I get my boss off my back today *sigh*

But beware I may be terrorizing you guys over here. cuz my taste certainly ain't the same as yours obviously...

// Dor_work / 549 weeks and 17 hours ago

Yeah, it's quite amusing. I'm not going to post every movie I come across (unlike some of my friends), but this is a cool song: [link]

// craeonics / 549 weeks and 16 hours ago

I don't know what to think about that one dutchy I remember seeing that one before, should be called "Strange Harmony" (all those naked ppl and no body having sex?) hehe

weird vid, the song is good though but that is a weird vid for sures however not as weird as that other vid you showed me once of a naked guy running around in the snow! OMG!

// Doreen / 549 weeks and 13 hours ago

As for excellente vids here's one (boy the quality of the vids on youtube is horrible though)

[link]

na na na na na naaaa!

// Doreen / 549 weeks and 13 hours ago

Gwen Steffani is evil!

// craeonics / 549 weeks and 12 hours ago

It's Gwen Stefani. (amazing how many diff ways we all can spell her name) hehe

/me is listening to wind, wind chimes and birdies and (slaving my day away for a simple paycheck)

// Doreen / 549 weeks and 11 hours ago

Regardless how you spell her name, I think she was better when she was still in No Doubt.

// craeonics / 548 weeks and 6 days ago

I agree, it's a shame we bug you to death to make our forum so we can have our listening to thread and all I'm listening to is birds and some construction outside my window while I work. (Haven't had time to go hunt good tunes)

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 6 days ago

/me has been listening to the sound of nature all day. And shrimp fishing gear..

// Pepijn / 548 weeks and 6 days ago

Hey it's the fisherman! Hi PKtje all I'm listening to atm is noisy birds and some truck backing up and beeping (it's driving me crazy)

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 6 days ago

/me is listening to jordy [link]

(it's 90s music week at work and i have the only pc with speakers)

// sryo / 548 weeks and 6 days ago

And jussss when you think you've seen it all? hehe

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe!!!! OMG I think I like this you tube thingie! But it's unreal how ppl can mock up a good tune...

Check this out! [link]

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 5 days ago

Okay last one cuz you might ban meeee since our taste is quite diff. hehe

[link]

I heard when the PCD's went to the Netherlands to perform in concert they got banned (which I thought was a joke until I read it was true!)

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 5 days ago

They did? I'm not aware of any band getting banned over here.

// craeonics / 548 weeks and 5 days ago

Yup "they" did (guess you dutch can't handle pussycat dolls) hehe

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 4 days ago

Shoot google is not my friend today, I tried to find it but I remember months back on the google news entertainment page seeing they went to the Netherlands and either got banned or heavily cited for something (they prob tosssed a lil shock treatment over there and you guys could not handle it) hehe

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 4 days ago

Highly, highly doubtful.

/me is listening to massive disk copy operations

// craeonics / 548 weeks and 4 days ago

/me is listening to my County machine which sounds like it's

about to blow up on me.

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 3 days ago

I have the whole office to myself today Hooray!!!

/me goes stream some Coldplay or something and get busy

(g'luck getting your things transfered and settled dutchy)

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 3 days ago

/me listens to "loco mia" [link] (last bizarre 90s hit of the week).

// sryo / 548 weeks and 3 days ago

Ha, we're spamming music from three continents now.

/me is listening to cars passing by. How come they are so much noisier during the summer?

// craeonics / 548 weeks and 2 days ago

Good Monday.

I've been listening to -and talking about- wind again this weekend (and made a video..) [link]

The song in the video is by someone called George McFetridge, good way to start the week :)

// Pepijn / 548 weeks and 1 day ago

Hmm that is some God awful music but the windmill is cool...

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 20 hours ago

That's awesome music!

(you barbarian!)

(and whatever you might think, that music surely beats the God awful sound of the wind directly blowing into the microphone of my camera)

// Pepijn / 548 weeks and 20 hours ago

hehe! No the music is horrible (but the windmill and the scenery was pretty)

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 18 hours ago

/me listens to something good I've not heard in a while...

Train - Calling all Angels

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 14 hours ago

Without even listening, I will surmise that both your music is terrible.

/me hops off examining computer parts

// craeonics / 548 weeks and 13 hours ago

You you.. surmiser! (and that's supposed to be a student, trying to learn and be open to new things.. tss)

// Pepijn / 548 weeks and 13 hours ago

Dutchy if you plan on running Vista Ultimate you better put a larger portion of your money towards a good graphic card. (Vista is picky about what graphic card it will play nice with)

// Doreen / 548 weeks and 12 hours ago

I'm going to get the fastest card that can still be passively (as in: no fans) cooled. Ergo, probably a GeForce 8600GTS, which can handle Vista.

Aside from that, having an open mind does not free one from qualitative judgement.

/me is tortured with Tori Amos at the moment

// craeonics / 548 weeks and 2 hours ago

Well that's a good choice. Two things taught me (should say forced me to learn) about those stupid cards:

1. Vista

2. Gaming

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm interested in neither. I just want to have a better card than my friends.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe silly...

Well at any rate you'll need a good one as anything you run these days you need to have a good one or you're out of luck.

/me is listening to: Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal (one of his worse tunes)

OMG me goes change this stream before I jump out of my skin.

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 6 days ago

Actually some bug is getting ready to attack me cuz every sound is making me want to jump out of my skin today.

/me goes back to work and listening to birds, cars and contruction work outside my window...

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 6 days ago

/me hears an ambulance many, many blocks away

Sound carries far during summer. Okay, now I hear someone passing by, whistling the tone of the ambulance's siren.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 6 days ago

I think our box is broke. hehe!

sorry bout that I don't even know what happened there I got an error msg and it hiccuped or something...

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 6 days ago

Soapbox doesn't work when you're on the board. Still have to fix that.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 6 days ago

/me listens to some good Old School (one of my favs)

War - Don't Let No One Get You Down

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 5 days ago

You mean these dudes: [link]? Never heard of them.

/me goes put on some classy background music to study

I'm so going to fail tomorrow's exam. I'm only a fourth into the book. I estimate it would take me a week to read it fully.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 5 days ago

How could you not have heard of War? sigh dutch oh boy...

Get to that book!

/me prays for your exam sounds like you'll need it you lazy bunny.

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 5 days ago

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Mystic Circle - One rode to Asa Bay

Indeed, a Bathory cover. Very few covers are better than their original (Soft Cell's version of Tainted Love comes to mind), this sure as hell ain't one of them.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 5 days ago

I get everyone out of my hair and come to play w/ you and there you are in la la land yet again...

Anyways I'm still wondering why everyone thinks they need to try their hand at Tainted Love, this past year alone the Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna and Lacuna Coil tried it. (I still don't know what to think about the original song myself)

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 5 days ago

According to this: [link], the original is by Gloria Jones. The only reason I'm aware that Soft Cell's version is a cover is because the original was used in GTA. Original version is quite good (up-tempo soul music, good vibe).

/me is being tortured by Amy W(h)inehouse at the moment

// crae_work / 547 weeks and 5 days ago

Dutchy do you know you got me hooked on that stupid Wiki thing? I always hop links and find out something new over there I just clicked on your link which took me to another and another link and I jusss found out who the inspiration was for that tune Amber by Nick Hexum lead singer of 311, it was the lead singer of PCD? strange who would have thought that? hehe

Anyways do good on that exam today school boy, me goes get ppl off my back today *sigh*

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 4 days ago

/me pictures you sitting in class taking your exam you lilll school boy! hehe!

I still cannot believe you never heard of War? You mean you never heard of War - Lowrider? (L.A. Anthem over here)

/me goes play more War today...

War - Cinco De Mayo

La la laaaa

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 4 days ago

Nope, never heard of them.

/me is listening to rain pouring down

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 4 days ago

I wish I was, I'm listening to the rays of the sun sizzling off the ground outside.

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 4 days ago

Bad, very bad, teen pop on tv at the moment. Kely Clarkson, I believe.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 3 days ago

Ohhh what you doo to me ohhhhh

I have no idea who this guy is singing and playing the guitar)

peaceful day at work today though thank God...

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 3 days ago

Look what the cat, erm, mailman dragged in: the new Dimmu Borgir cd. The "limited deluxe edition, including bonus track and bonus DVD". Yay! Except that I still don't have a DVD player (not counting my PS2) and "limited" implies that the amount of CD's printed should be mentioned somewhere. Comes with a (plastic) mirror so you can read the inverted lyrics in the booklet.

/me goes rip it to disk and then listen

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

In the meantime...

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Cascada - Miracle

[link]

Judging by the ridiculous lyrics, it's got to be Belgian. /me checks... Nope, German. I was close though.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

Hmm, lots of error correcting going on while ripping. Shouldn't be necessary for a brand new cd. Tsk tsk.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: DJ Porny - Me so Horny [link]

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

Hmm excellent tune (but those 3 either need some serious dance lessons or a jump rope so they can skip rope)hehe!

/me is listening to the boys skate board outside my window and myself melting over here w/ this rediculous heat. *sigh*

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

Oh boy dutchy as for that other vid up there is that blondie "trying" to be sexy? hehe!!!

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

Believe it or not, but that strange jumping in that DJ Porny video is the latest craze over here. It's called "jumpstyle".

As for Dimmu's latest album... it stinks. Seriously. Worst album yet. Every song sounds the same, except when Vortex does his clear singing thing.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

No surpise, because it turns out to be a bloody concept album. I have yet to come across a decent, let along good, concept album.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

More like jump rope! hehe!

/me is listening to fans now (It's so hot over here dutchy) *sigh*

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

I had to go back and check out that jumpstyle thingie that looks so funny look at this hehe!!!

[link]

Dutchy you see anything w/ the word porny over here on this side you better watch out!

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 2 days ago

It's basically line dancing to a house beat, but I doubt they are aware of that themselves. Or else they wouldn't be doing it.

// craeonics / 547 weeks and 1 day ago

/me was checking a few links out last night about that and I think it's silly but then over here we have something called "Mosh Pits" basically they think/call it dancing (but all it is is beating the Hell out of each other and venting like nuts on the dance floor)

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 1 day ago

Foo Fighters - Everlong (Acoustic Version)

Electric version of this tune is so so...

// Doreen / 547 weeks and 1 day ago

I'm fixing somebodys computer and I jussss had to rip their tunes off their HD first...

Al Green - Here I am Baby

Here I am baby, come and take me, here I am babyyy

Mmmm mmm mmmm!

// Doreen / 546 weeks and 6 days ago

Hey they got some good taste? yikes!

Baby Bash - Sugar Sugar

// Doreen / 546 weeks and 6 days ago

/me was listening to my neighbor get thrown out cloths and all(*sigh* domestic violence)

// Doreen / 546 weeks and 4 days ago

Mmmm, action scenes in Doreen City. To quote the Goonies: "nothing ever happens over here".

// craeonics / 546 weeks and 4 days ago

Either my ears or my soul is confused today and thinks it's Sunday...

Casting Crowns - Praise you in the storm

// Doreen / 545 weeks and 4 days ago

Ack! Some blasphemer has desacrated Tainted Love again and turned it into some garbage mellow remix.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Richard Grey - Tainted Love (Warped Bass)

// craeonics / 545 weeks and 3 days ago

Yet another one who can't resist the challenge of singing that song (there's hardly anybody left who hasn't)

// Doreen / 545 weeks and 3 days ago

Nelly Furtado - Say it Right (not sure what to think of her new style still)

// Doreen / 545 weeks and 1 day ago

Her new style has Timbaland written all over it.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: silence

// craeonics / 545 weeks and 20 hours ago

/me comes and steals your silence.

// Doreen / 545 weeks and 15 hours ago

Ah, one of my colleagues has Tainted Love on her iTunes.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Soft Cell - Tainted Love

// craeonics / 544 weeks and 6 days ago

Hmm who is that girl! you better not be sitting too close to her! hehe

/me is listening to fans and melting (nasty heat wave over here)

// Dor_jealous! / 544 weeks and 6 days ago

War - Don't let no one get you down

Mmmmm mmmm mmmmm!

(I'm still on a mean war kick)

// Dor_war / 544 weeks and 6 days ago

Foo Fighters - Everlong

I can't even believe I like these guys (their vids don't even match w/ their songs (very weird crazy vids)

// Doreen / 544 weeks and 6 days ago

Well he's definetely on a roll...

Timberland - The way I are

(excellente!)

// Doreen / 544 weeks and 4 days ago

Alanis Morissette - Let's do it (let's fall in love)

Girlfriend mailed it to me some time ago (before I dared to call her my girlfriend ;-))

// Pepijn / 543 weeks and 6 days ago

Olivia Ruiz - I need a child

Same source, long time reference ;-) Just a very happy and pleasing-to-the-ears song.

// Pepijn / 543 weeks and 6 days ago

For some reason Mike Oldfield's Moonlight Shadow has been stuck in my head for the past few days.

[link]

// craeonics / 543 weeks and 2 days ago

Ohhh look what you've done

You've made a fool of everyone

Oh well, it seems likes such fun

Until you lose what you had wonnnn

Stupid tune is stuck in my head from a movie I seen recently...

Jet - Look what you've done

// Doreen / 542 weeks and 4 days ago

Moonlight Shadow is still stuck in my head. But I just got Amon Amarth's latest, so time to rip that and see if it's any good.

// crae_viking / 542 weeks and 3 days ago

I don't quite believe this myself but I'm listening to Gino trying to play Amon Amarths - City of Black Birds?

I went into his room to see what song he keeps trying to play over and over again(since I hear growling going on and there it was) hehe!

// Doreen / 542 weeks and 2 days ago

Nope it's "Cry of the Black Birds" I had to go double check he's been listening to that same Growling mess you listen to! oh boy...

// Doreen / 542 weeks and 2 days ago

I was just telling him you got the new album and your little cyber nephew said to ask you if could get him a copy of "Viking Fight" he can't find it anywhere on limewire maybe you can upload it on Tek somewhere for him to download? (if it's not too much trouble or the new album too)

// Doreen / 542 weeks and 2 days ago

What! That little pirate's got good taste.

// craeonics / 542 weeks and 1 day ago

If, by the way, this is what he means with "Viking Fight": [link], he should look for a song called "Amon Amarth", as that is the name. Unfortunately, I don't have that particular album (yet).

// craeonics / 542 weeks and 1 day ago

That is the "same exact one" he showed me yesterday that's the one he said he wants badly and can't find anywhere. But thanks dutchy I'll let him know the correct name (that's obviously why he can't find it) hehe

// Doreen / 542 weeks and 1 day ago

One day me and Gino were poking around in Sammy's stuff checking out the tunes on his Shuffle and laughing he had a bunch of cute happy little skater boy tunes. hehe

Anyways theeee best vid I've seen in a long time:

[link]

// Doreen / 542 weeks and 1 day ago

unreal the poor quality of the vids on that youtube (But I had to actually buy that vid off of iTunes it's so good)

// Doreen / 542 weeks and 1 day ago

/me clicks

Argh!

/me clicks the "close tab" button in a new world record time

// craeonics / 542 weeks and 1 day ago

How in the seven hells could this thread have magically disappeared?

// craeonics / 542 weeks and 1 day ago

I was listening to "Mom can I have some of your hair vitamins to grow my hair long?"

Seems my lil pirate wants to look like one now. hehe (he's been driving me nuts w/ that growling viking music all day long)

/me goes count the days until school starts back up...

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 6 days ago

Hair vitamins?

Back to music, I finally found out who did one of the coolest songs I ever heard and what it is called: Satori Part I by the Flower Travellin' Band. I've got to get my hands on that cd.

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 6 days ago

Just some vitamins you take 3 X's a day for your hair, nails and skin (makes your hair grow strong and long) I'm going to have to dose him up and trim his hair on full moons. I'll have him looking like a real pirate in 6 mos.

Anyways what is that Satori?

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

Something that rocks tremendously. Early seventies rock that sometimes sounds a lot like proto-doom metal. Very eerie.

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

Hmm never ever even heard of them but I had google show me and found this:

[link]

and 2 streams listed there right below the third paragraph (though I don't see part I)

strange that sound coming out of Japan?

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

Actually does sound quite good the first one sounds almost like it comes from India w/ a physidelic/trippy sound for sures...

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

But me is back on my Nelly Furtado kick once again.

Nelly Furtado/Timbaland - Give it to me

Mmmm mmm mmme goes get busy...

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

Part 1 is the best track. I'm annoying the hell out of my colleagues at work ever since I found the album in mp3 format, by playing it all day long.

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

okay now me goes search some more for that part 1 silly...

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

What in the world if this is the right sound clip you're completely nuts! [link]

(some guy that can't even yell right that's trying to sing?)

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

Part 1 totally stinks but Part 2 and better yet Part 3 are good. Part 5 the guy needs serious voice lessons just like Part 1

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

[link]

You play this at your work and they don't even fire you???

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

They can't do without me. Plus, it's my machine that's hooked to the sound system, so I control the vibes.

And part 1 rocks. I've ordered the cd. The estimate is four to six weeks, which probably means I'll receive a "this cd is no longer available" in three months or so.

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 5 days ago

Hmm, weird. This thread disappeared again.

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

Is it just this thread only that keeps vanishing? If so I think it's beyond weird...

Anyways hopefully for the sake of your co-workers I hope that CD is no longer available. hehe

(once again Part 1 is totally sucky you nut)

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

If that last.fm thing is the only bit you heared, you need to hear the real thing. It's cool.

This seems to be the only thread that randomly vanishes. But then again, this is also the only active thread, so I don't know if there's any correlation.

Colleague brought in some of his own music, so now I'm being tortured by the full Jamiroquai discography. A little Jay Kay I can handle, but the whole day long is too much!

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe dutchy welll you should hear what I have to put up w/ at work when the Opera lady shows up for work on my Fridays! Try working to Opera all day long I don't know whether to scream or cry...

I found this link after I posted the first one so no I pretty much heard the whole Part 1 thing if this is the right one? I'm not sure if this is the one you're talking about though: [link]

First link on the upper right player, is that the one? There's some weird guy yelling Ohhhhh or whatever he sounds totally rediculous! how could you even like that!?

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

Says the Gwen Stefani fan.

That's the one. It's excellent! Need I remind you that I have a strange taste in music?

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

Oh noooo I was kinda hoping I was listening to the wrong one. hehe

/me feels sorry for your co-workers when that CD arrives!

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

Good stuff:

[link]

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

That was somewhat of a hit over here. I'd say the live version is better than the studio version.

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

Dutchy look! read the words and listen to the lyrics. hehe!!!

[link]

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

OMG! help me I'm getting addicted to this silly you tube:

[link]

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

Dutchy that Amon link up there is the funniest thing I ever seen! hehe

(and don't be mad at me cuz it was Gino that showed it to me, he's addicted to them) when I get a chance I'll have to let you listen to a quick clip of him playing their tunes he actually plays by listening to them only w/ no tabs at all!

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

Weirdo people!

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

I think I'll be a royal pain in your behind even though you're sleeping I'm leaving this for you.(what else are sisters for anyways right?)

Here's Gino he said he wants your opinion, I already warned him you're very sarcastic and mean at times.

Keep in mind yet again we recorded this on a phone so it's sloppy, he did it by ear and used no tabs at all plus he's only 15 so be nice!

[link]

[link]

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

Hey I got the links right!

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 4 days ago

I'm not mean, I'm just (brutally) honest (and completely devoid of tact).

As to those recordings, I can't really make out which part is the original and which part is Gino playing along. So that means that either the recording is so bad that he fell off or that he can actually play along with the track indistinguishably (is that a word?) from it. I can't tell what part is Amon Amarth and what part is Gino, or in other words: very good.

I've heard some of his earlier stuff before, so there are some traits by which I can take a guess at where he is playing. It feels as if the guitar is pitched a little bit too high and there is a bit too much distortion going on (it almost gets a life of its own).

He should start a band or something.

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 3 days ago

Thanks dutchy he had his ipod plugged into his amp but turned the song down low so what you heard electric guitar wise was all Gino Bruno. =)

He was eager to hear your opinion but he'll have to wait until I get home. I keep telling him to start a band but he does not think he is good enough, I got him a class last year in school so he could learn how to read and write his own tunes but he got bored and said the class and the teacher was too slow. I think he's pretty amazing he only plays songs a few times over and over again and they plays them by ear! no tabs now. hehe

I rec'd a call from Sam's school they wanted to test him he's only 10 they asked if I would agree to let them test him I get the results this coming year they apparently want to put him in some special classes or something (I'm shocked since I can't even add 2+2 or spell right) hehe!

anyways, me goes get busy "Thank you" dutchy he'll appreciate that feedback I told him the same thing but he doesn't listen to me.

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 3 days ago

Okay you're lil cyber nephew has a big grin on his face and said to tell you thank you. (guess my opinion don't count since I'm his mom?) hehe

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 3 days ago

Mom's always think their kids are either angels and/or the most talented people in the world.

/me goes play family computer doctor

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 2 days ago

Yeah I know but mine really are. hehe =)

/me hands you some patience for today...

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 2 days ago

Dutchy I found some old recordings of Gino and was playing them for him to hear so he can hear how much he's improved and I told him "Can you imagine I let him listen to those!?" we were laughing and he told me to tell you he's sorry about that! hehe!

As if it's not bad enough I'm prob a royal pain in your behind he now wants me to ask you what other bands do you know that are similiar to Amon's style, can you list some for him, sorryyyy.

// Doreen / 541 weeks and 13 hours ago

Amon Amarth is a bit of a discrepancy in my cd collection, as it is a bit softer than the usual black and doom I listen to. Similar bands (musically, not lyrically) I have albums of would be In Flames and Dark Tranquility. Later Immortal sounds like Amon Amarth too, but is much better.

A good way to find albums/bands that sound like one you already know if via Amazon. If you look up the album, you usually find a list of similar albums at the bottom of the page, like: [link]

// craeonics / 541 weeks and 1 hour ago

Thanks dutchy, I'll pass that info onto him when my night owl wakes up later on. He kept asking me yesterday "Did he post the other bands yet!?" I tried to explain to him you practically live on another planet than us and it's a miracle we can even communicate w/ each other considering the time differences.

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

Gino said "Thank you very much"

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

Let's hope it was helpful.

And this thread disappeared again. I think it has something to do with usage of quotes. Though I'm puzzled as to how that could matter.

// craeonics / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

Why is it just this one??? I hope you can figure it out...

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

Gino said to tell you he likes that Dark Tranquility one? oh boy I guess you know what I'm listening to now...

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

Ugh! either I ate something really bad at lunch or this music is making me sick. (I don't know how you guys can stand this stuff)

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

Even though I tend to classify Amon Amarth as viking metal, it's really just death metal with a viking theme. There are two things I don't like about this genre: 1) vocals are a bit bland; 2) it lacks a distinct bass line. I'm more into doom these days (My Dying Bride and such).

And I think I can explain the disappearing posts. It has nothing to do with quotes, but rather with post timestamps. The thread list is generated by a single query, which basically says this: "give me all threads, sort them by last post and give me the poster of the last message for each thread". That last bit is a bit of a bitch to do in a single query without resorting to subselects. So I used a trick with timestamps, knowing quite well that there was a chance that it could fail. Turns out it occasionally does fail.

// craeonics / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

Good atleast you've an idea what it is now cuz I was afraid to type quotes after I read your last post.

As for Gino I think he's going through a Viking and/or Medieval times phase or something cuz he had me checking out two flicks at Blockbuster today (Pathfinder and 300)as well. So much for my chick flicks tonight...

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

You can't take 300 serious after you've played God of War (PS2). You'll be humming its tune throughout the movie (which, incidentally, stinks quite a bit).

// craeonics / 540 weeks and 6 days ago

Yup 300 stunk royally! but the Pathfinder flick was excellente!

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 5 days ago

/me is listening to Gino "Mom why is this Bathory CD all mixed up" hehe

He was digging around in my box of CD's and pulled out my Bathory ones and could not figure out why the tunes on the CD are all mixed up.

Bathory - Bond of Blood

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 14 hours ago

(I think I've had my full of this Viking kick he's on) I went over to check out DI dutchy pretty surprised at all the channels they've added "Soulful House?" What in the world?

Raul Moros - Amazonica (Nighttime mix)

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 11 hours ago

Umm anything but Soulful House (I think they need to retitle this channel or something) more like Jazzful House Ugh!

Latin Vibes EP1 - Rio Orchestra - Shawn Ward - Mettle Music - Shawn Ward - Coconut Lounge

// Doreen / 540 weeks and 11 hours ago

I alternate between Breaks, Classic Electronica and Drum 'n Bass. The switch usually takes place when they play a commercial.

// craeonics / 540 weeks and 2 hours ago

Been a while since I visited DI and it seems there's no bottom on that page (you can scroll for an hour) I can't imagine anyone not being able to find their flavor there now. I guess I'll be hanging out there for a week to check out all the new links. Indie Rock? what in the world? hehe

// Doreen / 539 weeks and 6 days ago

Thank God Roots Reggae is still there that one never fails...

// Doreen / 539 weeks and 6 days ago

Either my age is catching up w/ me or I awoke in a nasty mood today. hehe

Could not even find my flavor on DI, had to hit my "C" stuffezzz.

Mercy Me - Here w/ me

// Doreen / 539 weeks and 6 days ago

Bla bla blaaaa funky commercials and that was the only good tune in one hour! wait wait me hears Kutless possibly coming to the rescue...

Kutless - It's like me

Casting Crowns - Praise you in this storm

// Doreen / 539 weeks and 4 days ago

Immortal split up some years ago, which was too bad, because this was one band from whom I like just about all songs. But I recently found out they'd come back together with some other musicians under the monniker "I". Rejoice!

Abbath sounds very different here from in Immortal. In Immortal songs he would just more or less proclaim the lyrics, here he's actually trying to sing. Hmm...

And for some reason it took numerous hours to rip this cd. It doesn't look damaged, so this is quite odd.

Coldplay - Clocks (Instrumental version)

Nope stillll not sick of this one no matter what version I listen to. Can you believe they almost did not record this one they never dreamed anyone would like it what a crazy thought that was...

// Doreen / 539 weeks and 17 hours ago

I only hear silence. Aside from traffic passing by outside ofcourse. The new house is a little further from the road, so a bit less noisy.

// craeonics / 539 weeks and 13 hours ago

I'm renting a condo right now but it's two stories so I set up my work office upstairs in my bedroom away from most distractions and noise cept of course all the noise I make listening to my tunes and these birds outside my window that keep nesting and making baby chicks.

/me makes the missing thread appear again

I really need to fix this, but work, redecorating my house and exams are keeping me quite occupied.

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 6 days ago

Oh this wretched curse you have on me! I'll be wondering what you're listening to until the day I die!!!

"I'm" going to regret saying this but it looks like you need to listen to the hint this thread is giving you when it keeps going down, you're busy now and though Tek a "small" distraction it's still a distraction you don't need you need to take care of the things that are important. Maybe it's time to put Tek down?

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 5 days ago

Hellll no. I am a master in the Art of Post-Poneing. A further complicating factor is that my screen and keyboard have been standing on my coffee table for quite some time now instead of a regular desk and it's rather hard to type in that situation.

It's going to be housed on a real desk in the new house, I should be a bit more productive then.

*craeonics is listening to: Flower Travelling' Band - Satori Part I

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 5 days ago

As long as it's not a burden on you it sounds sometimes as if you're bugged you've no time to handle it and I just thought it would be easier on your mind to let it go.

On another note (off topic as usual) I took out this flick the other night called "Freedom Writers" cried and got teased by my kids through the whole movie. True story about this teacher trying to actually be a teacher over here in Ghettoland to make a long story short she "buys" her students this book called "Anne Frank The Diary of a Young Girl" since the school didn't want to waste books on the distructive students over here and well it was such a good flick "I" actually had to go buy this book! (hate books) I open the book up and guess what? The girl who wrote her Diary wrote it in Dutch! The book of course was translated into English but they show actual clippings of the original Diary written in Dutch which has a bunch of Dit, een and Ik and her cat's name was Moortje hehe!

(anyways, now I'm crying in this book it's so good but sad dutchy)

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 4 days ago

True story of events in World War II, viewed through the eyes of a adolescent girl. Depressing stuff. I've never felt inclined to read it. There's too much focus on WWII over here anyway. It's the national trauma.

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 4 days ago

I kid you not when I say again I pretty much spent my time in school staring out the window from my desk listening to the birds singing cuz I'm clueless about this stuff (guess it's a good thing I can't hear you laugh at me)

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 4 days ago

Peaceful, peaceful, peaceful, no opera lady today! I can get my work accomplished w/o being tortured!

Alright so that's about the only good part of the tune?

Gwen Stefani - The Sweet Escape

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 2 days ago

I don't think anyone routinely listening to Ms Stefani will understand the awesomeness of Satori Part I. Then again, it may have something to do with my sensitivity to "demons in forests" tunes. It is very much in that vein. It starts out like some kind of occult incantation or something, taking place deep in some dark, dense forest.

Gwen Stefani makes chick tunes, so no wonder I can't stand that. She was better when still in No Doubt.

The following is mediocre at best (no bass, too much treble), except for the bridge in the middle which has howling wolves.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Summoning - Through the Valley of the Frozen Kingdom [Lugburz, 05]

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 2 days ago

Well I have to agree she wasss better when in No Doubt howeverrrr she is still semi up there w/ all my other chick tunes by The Pussycat Dolls, Fergie, and Nelly Furtado (which whom I'm still trying to adjust to her new style)

Course my mostest favoritest tune right now issss:

Timbaland ft. Kelly Hilson - The Way I are

Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 2 days ago

Smelly Furtado's recent album basically is Timbaland with her doing the vocals.

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 1 day ago

Oh be quiet Mr. Dark and Dramatic, hey that book I was telling you about would not be something you would enjoy at all. Very thick atmosphere I couldn't put it down, but as you suspected it was very very depressing and sad (now I've got a bleeding heart) It's unreal to think that was all true dutchy!

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 1 day ago

Now I can officially call myself a masochist!!! Gino had me take out a flick last night called "The Pianist" (I think we're getting obsessed now) hehe!

I'm completely sick today from watching that last night, Sammy said "Mom the worse part of this movie is you cannot tell yourself that it's only a movie!"

I need to find some totally loud and obnoxious tunes today to pull myself out of this funk I'm in. *sigh*

Winterthrall - In Frozen Apathy

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 14 hours ago

Dutchy this Summoning - Ashen Cold is excellent! (well it would be excellent if the growling guy could be completely removed!) hehe

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 14 hours ago

"Runes of Power" is excellent as well but once again it would be much better w/o the growling guy that always gets in the way...

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 14 hours ago

/me takes notes

The songs you mentioned are from the album "Let Mortal Heroes sing your Fame". Unfortunately, I can't find that album in the shops where I buy my stuff. It's almost as if it is out of print or something.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: I - Between Two Worlds [Between Two Worlds, 03]

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 14 hours ago

Wait! I see Displeased Records has finally stepped into the 21st century and opened up a real metal webshop: [link]. Previously they only has their catalogue online and you would have to order via paper forms and such cumbersome nonsense.

/me goes order stuff

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 13 hours ago

Try Limewire (Best shop in the world!) hehe

alright so I could only grab 4 from the album but I got the best 4 from which the sound clips I heard...

// Doreen / 537 weeks and 11 hours ago

La la la laaaaa!

Summoning - Farewell

(But I swear this music would be much more better if they took the screaming out and just left the castles)

// Dor_summoning / 537 weeks and 11 hours ago

Suddenly my bank got fast. The shop already received the payment and has packaged the lot, so it should probably be mailed today, meaning that I should receive it tomorrow.

Anyway, I always buy cd's instead of downloading things. It's both about quality (mp3's stink) and "support the bands" (I listen to obscure stuff on small labels).

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 2 hours ago

/me kicks back the disappearing thread again

// craeonics / 537 weeks and 21 minutes ago

Umm I'm not so sure about the quality anymore when purchased (I used to think that way too) however do you remember when I bought my (2) Bathory CD's? both came to me w/ the songs in the wrong order all mixed up as if they had been home made CD's rather than factory CD's. At any rate I only d/l to check out and be certain before I buy especially when it's tunes like Summoning of which I've never heard of before. (I might buy that one CD the other songs from Summoning were not as good)

// Doreen / 536 weeks and 6 days ago

Dutchy before this day is over I will have ordered the "Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame" CD cuz I normally only have (1) fav that I choose as the best off of any CD but on this one I cannot choose between "Runes of Power" and "Ashen Cold" they both sound so epic! I have to own this CD...

/me goes float into my day w/

Summoning - Ashen Cold

// Doreen / 536 weeks and 6 days ago

/me just got a message from the store that the cd's I ordered have been sent. I should receive them tomorrow, including that particular Summoning album.

It's rather odd. Another of their albums, Stronghold, has been in my collection for years, but it really wasn't all that special. Rather annoying even.

// craeonics / 536 weeks and 6 days ago

I ordered it from CD Universe prob ship to me in two days...

Not sure you will like this one dutchy from the others as it does not have that fast drum/bass and the heavy growling stuff you seem to like but it has rather more of an erie type atmosphere of castle enchantment, gritty guitar and a heroism feel to it.

// Doreen / 536 weeks and 6 days ago

/me goes float around in that castle all day. hehe

I swear you can almost smell a musty dungeon, it's that good...

// Doreen / 536 weeks and 6 days ago

Had an exam this evening. So I took food to work and put it in the fridge. Finished work, walked to the station (school is in a diferent city), stepped into the train and looked in my bag. Hmm, where's my food?

The answer is ofcourse, still in the fridge at work, @#$%!! So I had to do that exam on an empty stomach. After the exam I took the train back, walked to work to pick up my bike and the food from the fridge. Turns out that suddenly my key stopped working, so I couldn't get in. Or in other words, my food is still in the fridge at work.

Luckily there were four cd's waiting for me when I got home.

/me is ripping the Summoning cd at the moment

// craeonics / 536 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe dutchyyy...

Wellll hurry up I want to drag you by your big nose into the dungeon. (let me know what you think of it, mine has not shipped yet and I'm trying not to tire myself out today on the copies I got off limewire so I'm waiting for my CD)

// Doreen / 536 weeks and 5 days ago

Ripping four cd's took quite some time, so I haven't listened to anything yet.

Meanwhile, I'm at work again. Time to check if my food is still in the fridge...

// craeonics / 536 weeks and 5 days ago

The nurses that I work w/ at the hospital like to grow moldy experiments in our fridge at work so I never use it. (But thank God I only deal w/ that issue one day a week)

// Doreen / 536 weeks and 4 days ago

I'm still alive, so it was edible.

// craeonics / 536 weeks and 4 days ago

I'm going through my new cd's in order of obscurity. Starting out with demons in forests and finishing with Summoning. This sounds like too much hi-hat and not enough bass. But the song is thirty minutes, so perhaps the bass will follow.

// Doreen / 536 weeks and 4 days ago

Something like that. But unlike Burzum, this Tasmanian one-man group seems to receive only scathing reviews. Which is quite odd, as it is not quite different from other bands in the same genre.

// craeonics / 536 weeks and 3 days ago

Hmm, there are some seriously sucky samples on this album. It would've been much better if they'd let those out. First two songs haven't been too interesting.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Summoning - South Away [Let Mortal Heroes sing your Fame, 02]

// craeonics / 536 weeks and 3 days ago

Having listened to the entire album, I can conclude that there is way too much sample usage and it sounds too much like Stronghold (which really gets annoying after a while). The only really good song on the album is the reason why I bought it, track 3: In Hollow Halls beneath the Fell.

// Doreen / 536 weeks and 3 days ago

The weather is still tormenting me and worse yet no CD in my mailbox today again (which means no mail tomorrow cuz it's Sunday and Monday is a Holiday so no mail yet again)

La la la laaaaa! What is this that my eyes behold? A beautifully golden crafted shiny CD w/ a spikey enchanting looking dragon draped upon it!?

(course it was completely covered by all my bills in my mailbox which somewhat ruined my happy mood about this) but my CD has arrived!!!!!

/me goes import this to my iphone and try to salvage this hot day w/ some enjoyment.

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 6 days ago

Okay my evening went a little crazy so was hard to give this CD my undivided attention but a quickie review:

A New Power Is Rising - Boring Zzzzz (too much prep for battle)

Svuth Aman - Though this picks up alil and the guitar saves it somewhat, it's still Zzzzzz.

In Hollow Halls Beneath the Fells - Excellente!

Our Foes Shall Fall - Beautiful and Excellente!

The Mountain King's Return - ??? Still not sure yet I need to listen more

Runes of Power - Excellente! (I told you this one from the sample I had already I love)

Ashen Cold - Excellente! (Ditto here)

Farewell - Semi-Excellente but maybe the masculine feel on this one goes overboard for me.

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 5 days ago

If you like this album you should check some tracks of their "Stronghold" album. There are quite some similarities.

I get a bit bored by the vocals and certain repeating keyboard tricks though. Not too mention the bloody samples. Track three though, is awesome.

// craeonics / 535 weeks and 5 days ago

Track four (Our Foes Shall Fall) is now neck and neck w/ Runes of Power and has nudged Ashen cold down a notch...

I'll check out Stronghold via Limewire I need to stop buying so much stuff and devote one year straight to paying off my bills now so that I can get serious on buying a house someday too "hopefully" (I'm totally distructive but it's time I stop)

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 5 days ago

Curious enough, buying is technically cheaper than renting over here. I pay less mortgage than I would have to pay rent. There are downsides ofcourse, you are less mobile as it is a long term investment, and you have to cough up (the money for) all repairs yourself, but the upside (at least over here) is that owning a house is tax-deductable and it is essentially capital you own.

Anyway, hiring never was an option for me. There is so much demand that there is a general waiting list that literally takes years. People who have been on the list longest get first picks. Stupid system.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Summoning - In Hollow Halls beneath the Fells [Let Mortal Heroes sing your Fame, 03]

// craeonics / 535 weeks and 5 days ago

My step father gifted me his house when he married my mom, but it never felt like my house cuz everyone else in my family came to live w/ me as if my house was the Holiday Inn! And when it got run down "I" had to keep paying for all the repairs cuz of course it was "my" house right? So I sold it to run away (practically gave it away) which was the biggest mistake of my life cuz 2 yrs after I sold it the market went through the roof and I could have walked away w/ 150 thousand dollars profit instead of only 20 (which I spent on a car cash cuz I needed good transportation) *stupid* I should have saved the money. =(

Now I'm not so certain I will ever be able to buy a house cuz renting is so hard I can't seem to save anything. I currently pay 1400 a mo for this Condo I'm renting (though my manager could easily rent this condo for 2000 a mo and he does not lock me into a lease so I'm happy about that) but oh well I still dream...

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 5 days ago

/me gently nudges my killer CD into the player anddddd selectsssss:

Summoning - Our Foes Shall Fall

(dutchy this one "completely" took over as my fav on this CD)

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 4 days ago

Wow, you spend more money on your rent than I make a month (roughly). That condo of our had better be at a prime location then.

/me goes paint some walls

// craeonics / 535 weeks and 4 days ago

I think things might be a bit more expensive on this side not sure? If I was alone I'd have rented a small cheap apt and save every penny until I could buy my house (by the water where it is always cool) but I had no clue having kids would mean I'd have to sacrafice my entire life!!!

Yes the condo I rent is where it should be trust me (and mainly for their benefit not mine)

Go paint and think if you wanted to paint it black you actually could and nobody can tell you a thing about it! See there are some joys of owning a home...

Shoot! I remembered you only skin antique things like windows desktops and such? so like you said before you've no clue what is skinned by looking at my ss's but I've modified my phone so much and now I can't seem to find any ss's of the default screen images. Not that you care but I felt like bugging you anyways (even though you're snoring right now w/ paint speckles all over you) hehe

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 4 days ago

Painting is the pits. But the house is progressing. Now I just have to wait (several weeks) for all the things I ordered to be delivered (kitchen, couch, curtains). After that I can start moving.

And yeah, I really need before and after shots to make sense of things.

// craeonics / 535 weeks and 3 days ago

Hooray!!!!!

/me is excited for you!

I'll bore you w/ the default images when time permits maybe over the weekend cuz you can't tell by looking at my silly ss's I showed you.

gonna be a longggg day today *sigh* (I'd rather be skinning) hehe

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 3 days ago

Umm I'll spare you the boring default pics as I'm sure you'll be seeing them for yourself when and if you check out an iphone. I almost killed my phone trying to install a 3rd party app so I think I'll simply stick to skinning the device's images rather then getting too crazy w/ it right now. hehe

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 2 days ago

I have zero interest in mobile phones, so it's doubtful that I'll be seeing things. "Reachability" is way overrated.

/me goes skin his house some more

// craeonics / 535 weeks and 1 day ago

// craeonics / 535 weeks and 1 day ago

And I thought you paid attention to detail? (I fixed my overly pixilated stars on the night one)

Anyways goedenmorgen you...

/me goes tackle this day (rather be sleeping)

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 20 hours ago

I'm still Zzzzzz

No I got excited yesterday (was on my yearly skinning high) cuz I figured out how to skin the actually "weather icons" not just the background images silly it's not even close the same ss's I showed you before! men!!!

The only thing is you can't change the layout or animate the rain yet etc. But I'm sure someone will hack that part soon enough on the iphone so that can be done as well...

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 20 hours ago

I only skin what I use these days. My LiteStep setup is about eight years in the making, does what I want (as far as LiteStep can do it) and has rendered the machine completely inoperable to others.

It's great fun to see people struggle with my esoteric interface. Not having a mouse helps tremendously too.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Summoning - Farewell [Let Mortal Heroes sing your Fame, 08]

// craeonics / 535 weeks and 16 hours ago

hehe! you nut...

I just finished listening to that CD in my car I had some errands to run, but I better stop listening to that CD so much cuz I'm actually hearing it play in my head while I slept last night.

// Doreen / 535 weeks and 15 hours ago

You mean you dreamt/ed you were in Lord of the Rings or something?

// craeonics / 534 weeks and 5 days ago

No silly I was just hearing that song Our Foes Shall Fall playing over and over again in my head (driving me nuts) I can hear the song even though I stopped playing the CD, it's stuck in my head!

I better stay away from your music it's dangerous...

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 5 days ago

I have no idea why these two lil boys are listening to this stuff lately but this is what I keep busting them listening to (and what I'm stuck listening to)

[link]

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 5 days ago

Alright "maybeee" I'll stop boring you w/ my kids (maybe)

Quick question cuz I'm not in the mood to try to lug this box to a tech today, what would cause the maching to periodically make a high pitch cycle sound and then cause your typing to suddenly stop appearing on the screen for a few seconds and then suddenly appear all at once? I type a few letters and then it freezes and then suddenly the rest of the word appears after a delay? Do you think it to be my cordless keyboard? or some hardware issue? argh! I'm sick of this stuff! (I just got this machine not too long ago)

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 4 days ago

Nevermind I think it might be a faulty surge protector (I'll know for sures before this day is over)

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 4 days ago

I suspect CPU spikes while typing, meaning that the machine is busy with other things at that time and postpones displaying what you've entered. It's always a big mystery to me what is causing the spike, but I usually blame Windows and its attempts to swap memory at that time.

// craeonics / 534 weeks and 3 days ago

It was a faulty surge protector when I checked things out I heard sparks when I moved some plugs (bought a new one)

Hows playing house going still not in! hurry up and move already I want to see pics

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 3 days ago

/me sends Doreen some picks

It's almost done. Just some painting needing to be done. Right now I'm mostly waiting for things I ordered to arrive (kitchen, couch, curtains).

Anyway, I see sparks all the time while plugging things in/out. I'm more worried about the smell of burnt rubber and such.

// craeonics / 534 weeks and 3 days ago

Hooray!!!!!

/me goes scuffle to my purse and find my iphone to see them!

(currently at work/dungeon)

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 3 days ago

Dutchyyyy I'm sooo excited for you! what a killer view you have from what I can see!!! Beautiful... (I can't wait to get home to see them better I have to view these from my phone right now) argh! I have a few nosey ppl around me.

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 3 days ago

Dutchy you have gorgeous wooden floors! (Be better if you don't carptet all of them for the sake of your asthma) but really beautiful! I can't wait to get this stupid day over w/ so I can run home and see them better (gotta get somethings done) but "Thank you" for letting me be nosey on you...

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 3 days ago

Yowwwza!!! (Good stuff)

Pitbull - Go Girl

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 1 day ago

/me kicks this thread back into the list

I really, really, really need to fix this bug. Argh!

// craeonics / 534 weeks and 21 hours ago

Okay, another kick.

// craeonics / 534 weeks and 21 hours ago

No you don't (take care of your business over there) and I'll tryyy to give this thread a break sorry about that can't help myself. hehe

// Doreen / 534 weeks and 15 hours ago

Yikes!!! Dutchy! I hope this thread don't drop dead again (and yesss I lied I have to post in it again cuz me is excited)

I jusss got around to yesterday's mail and I got official notification on your lil cyber nephew (Sammy my 10 yo) that he is gifted! He passed whatever testing they did on him at his school last year and the results came in. Thank God I don't have to pay a penny he'll be in chemistry and disecting things and doing all kinds of things most ppl don't get to do until High School...

Yup this momma has the right to officially brag. hehe!

I'm sooo excited for him dutchy!!!

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 6 days ago

Yay!

Though "gifted" might also be pretty bored with things in school. It does not necessarily equal high grades. I know I am too lazy to study.

// craeonics / 533 weeks and 6 days ago

The lowest grade Sammy has ever brought home was an A- however Gino on the other hand is a diff story that kid breathes music but struggles in school (this year he seems pretty motivated too and he's taking German I said "Say what!?" hehe

He is hanging around w/ some German kid that is over here in Cali as an exchange student and he seems to be motivating my son or something...

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 6 days ago

I had to go run around the corner and pick him up early today those stupid allergies of his.

/me kicks your lazy behind in gear. How are you doing in school are you still wasting your money going through the motions or are you getting serious about it. (I'm allergic to school the bills make me sick)

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 6 days ago

Serious is for sissies. I just like to burn money.

// craeonics / 533 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe oh boyyyyy (well your money)

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 5 days ago

Hoorayyyyy!!! Finally listening to the sound of pounding rain!

/me goes sleep for a few dayzzzz...

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 2 days ago

/me goes play games instead of working on the bloody house

And what's up with Skindom these days. Nothing is happening!

// craeonics / 533 weeks and 1 day ago

Gosh, I leave for a couple of days and this particular thread went completely offtopic... tsss, don't we have a moderator here? :)

Offtopic: I just found a great use for my oversized Tek t-shirt; present for my girlfriend (apparently it makes for a perfect nightgown) :)

(and hiya folks, it's good to know there will always be Tek)

// PK / 533 weeks and 1 day ago

Halo 3 is coming out in 2 days (me goes hide under the bed!) Desktop Skindom is sooo yesterday now it's all about the new Phone Skindom.

PKtje I think the Tek shirts make "much better" nightgowns.

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 1 day ago

Phones are for desk slaves. Independent spirits have no need for mobile chains.

With that said though, seeing that there are so much graphics on mobile phones these days, it's strange to see that they don't get skinned much. Then again, how the hell are you supposed to do that?

// craeonics / 533 weeks and 19 hours ago

That's the problem dutchy "most mortals" are clueless but for us skinnerz where there is a will there is a way... hehe

Anyways look chazzles has redecorated his house

(Ummm no comment here cept it does feel much faster?)

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 19 hours ago

And to get this thread back on topic...

Akon ft. Ludacris, Diddy (and my fav) Lil Jon - Get Buck In Here

Interesting Combo however the only part I really like is the 2 second part where Lil Jon jumps in towards the end.

*sigh* music jusss ain't what it used to be *sigh*

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 19 hours ago

Timbaland - The Way I Are

Ohhh baby it's alright now you ain't gotta flaunt for meeee

If we go there, you can still touch my love, it's freeeee

We can work without the perks just you and meeee

Thug it out 'til we get it right

Alright so some tunes are okay but stilllll the lyrics stink as usual. hehe!

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 18 hours ago

Chazzles forgot to define a background colour. Other than that, it looks pretty generic. And what are those nasty links at the bottom? *shivers*

// craeonics / 533 weeks and 18 hours ago

Switchfoot - Learning to Breathe

That I'm learning to breathe

I'm learning to crawl

I'm finding that You and

You alone can break my fall

I'm living again, awake and alive

I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies

Ahhh mucho better (can't handle all the playa lyrics today)

/me goes check out what you're talkin bout willis (cuz I've no clue I can't seem to stay on his site now it feels yuk?) =(

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 17 hours ago

Hmm I didn't even see those till now but doesn't matter how small you stash that kinda stuff (I can still feel where it's going) oh welllll...

/me goes worship today

Casting Crowns - Praise You In This Storm (Which is my absolute Fav though it leaves some nasty country after taste in my mouth) hehe!

I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down

and wiped our tears away,

stepped in and saved the day.

But once again, I say amen

and it's still raining

as the thunder rolls

I barely hear You whisper through the rain,

"I'm with you"

and as Your mercy falls

I raise my hands and praise

the God who gives and takes away.

Chorus:

And I'll praise you in this storm

and I will lift my hands

for You are who You are

no matter where I am

and every tear I've cried

You hold in your hand

You never left my side

and though my heart is torn

I will praise You in this storm

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 17 hours ago

/me kicks Doreen and her reli rock out of this thread

// craeonics / 533 weeks and 12 hours ago

/me prays to the gods and proclaims:

Oh Lord, I have skinned!

Sony, on an ongoing quest to create bad ass hardware supported by lame ass software, forced me to look for An Alternative. Out of the dark pages of a black google I found ml_sony.dll on sourceforge dot com. Combined with winamp and a shiny new skin this now lets me listen to reli rock 24hrs a day / six days a week (if I'd wanted to).

I've skinned, and it felt damn good :)

// PK_the_enlightened_one / 533 weeks and 11 hours ago

Oh, and I'm now listening to Paddy's Sicknote by the Dubliners (wondering if my boss would go for a similar note).

// PK / 533 weeks and 11 hours ago

/me sings louder!

alright, alright you evil bunny...

So PKtje is still skinning winamp? (I bet I know what color it is)

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 9 hours ago

OMG!

Dubliners - Paddy's Sicknote???

/me gets down on my knees and prays:

Dear Heavenly Father please please please help PKtje w/ his taste in music!

PKtje I've seen that red hair of yours and now I heard this song so you need to come clean and confess cuz I knowwww you're not Dutch you're Irish! hehe

// Doreen / 533 weeks and 9 hours ago

Did you dutchys get Halo 3 over on that end yet? We had a midnight release (oh boyyy yup I got dragged off into the midnight madness and got them their copy) I haven't played that one yet but must see tonight if it was worth it. Like 150 ppl in line at midnight! hehe

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 6 days ago

I have no interest in a PC disguised as a console, so I'm not going near Xboxes. Besides, Halo is not that special.

// craeonics / 532 weeks and 6 days ago

/kick

// craeonics / 532 weeks and 6 days ago

Well it seems to have alot of fans on this end I have no clue myself cuz I'm only a fan of WOW and EQII mainly but these two kids of mine have taken even that away from me!!! (trying to keep up w/ my toys and their toys is not an easy task)

Anyways I'll have to check it out tonight when they get to play it and see what all the hype is about.

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 6 days ago

It totally stinks no challenge no nothing just a big gun in your face! I want my money back! hehe

But they seem to love it, it does have great graphics, textures and sounds but thazzz about it. (I'd rather shoot fire and spells from my fingertips not a gun!)

/me goes wipe the gun pounder off of me yuk! horrible...

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 6 days ago

Told you. It's nothing special, even if you are into scifi military stuff. There are much better shooters out there. Microsoft is just overhyping this because it is their own product and the 360 sells poorly.

// craeonics / 532 weeks and 6 days ago

/kick (this is getting annoying)

Drum 'n Bass on the radio at the moment, by the way.

// craeonics / 532 weeks and 6 days ago

Hmm, apparantly my colleage can't handle Immortal. It is great fun to play various types of music and then check his response.

// crae_work / 532 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe put on Burzum (I dare you)

/me is listening to complete total silence cept my keystrokes the office is out today and no scheduled meetings and my boss is in a meeting in New Jersey!

Ahhhhh *sigh* Sheer Heaven...

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 3 days ago

I did put on Burzum, but he started groaning at the first note. He seems to have some kind of antipathy against guitars or something.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Summoning - South Away [Let Mortal Heroes sing your Fame, 02]

// craeonics / 532 weeks and 3 days ago

I seriously doubts it's the guitars that set him off groaning prob that wonderful singing *cough* screaming Burzum does...

/me tosses something on from my iphone to break up this overwhelming silence in this office.

Pitbull - Go Girl Mmmmm mmmm yummmmm!!!

(wellll atleast until I hear any knocks at the door) hehe

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 3 days ago

I just spotted I have my whole Summoning CD copied to my phone sooooo me goes listen toooo:

Summoning - In Hollow Halls Beneath The Fells

*cough* yourrr fav...

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 3 days ago

That song has a wicked drum loop.

* Doreen plays Pitbull at work

* Doreen starts crunking

* knock on the door

* Doreen freezes mid-air and rapidly switches to opera

// craeonics / 532 weeks and 2 days ago

hehe! noooo me only listens to opera when the opera lady forces me to (and she was off yesterday) and yesss I agree w/ you that song does have a wicked drum loop.

/me listens to the birdies and some car pulling in or out of this complex...

You better be painting and getting that place of yours done, hurry up so we can play over here! I want to wipe some dust off of our home over here at Teknidermy you lazy bunny!

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 2 days ago

Dutchy warning put your sunglasses on but check this out:

They released the new firmware out for the iphone most ppl jumped on it anddddd locked themselves out of their phone (but not meee) I skinned my Dictionary app. hehe

[link]

[link]

*sigh* /me goes play maid and get some cleaning done today...

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 2 days ago

How's my totally exhausted dutchy doing over there! =)

evilly hehe

Take it easy me moves every other year or when my lease is up or rent goes up so I know it's no picnic in the park. (Hope you're doing okay)

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 1 day ago

This house is going to be the death of me. I bought some chairs today to go with my dinner table, except that they don't match. At all. But fuck it, I'll bear with it for now.

Those iPhone skins, by the way, is that just changing the background and icons or is there more to it?

// craeonics / 532 weeks and 16 hours ago

hehe! I'm sorryyyyy dutchy but I can't help but worry about you cuz I knowwww how much work you're going through right now and I knowwwww what a lazy bunny you are...

Chair issue is easy either buy a semi-matching table cloth or exchange the chairs again (though I can see you on your bike holding chairs and trying to hold the handle bars) hehe!

As for the iphone the first time I skinned it to put one simple theme of a background image and change the icons it took me a week of reading and hacking but now you can not only change the background image and icons but totally re-order the icon locations as well and "on the fly" in two seconds flat (once of course you've created the theme and uploaded it to a special directory on the iphone)

Right now everyone locked themselves out of their iphones w/ the new firmware upgrade that was recently released (I won't touch it cuz me likes to skin a bit too much) and my phone works perfectly...

Anyways dutchy please take care of yourself bet work, school and moving the mom side of me is reallyyyy worrying about you. "take care my dutchy" big adjustment to having your own pad (good and bad)

// Doreen / 532 weeks and 15 hours ago

Now that PKtje has found other uses for our Tek bunny T's and your moving it seems the forum is getting cold!

How's your move coming along dutchy I think I'm missing you... I hate you!!!

// Doreen / 530 weeks and 4 days ago

What I'm waiting for is that stupid ISP I signed up with to deliver my ADSL-connection. It was supposed to be done the 4th, but nothing happened. And internet is a prime necessity these days, so I'm not moving until I have that.

As for our current ice age, perhaps it would help if I made the forum more visible. Then again, there's still not much happening in Skindom.

// craeonics / 530 weeks and 4 days ago

My favourite Doe Maar song ever:

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Doe Maar - Bella Donna

// craeonics / 530 weeks and 4 days ago

What no ISP! Are they crazy! that should come the day the keys are given to you...

As for the slow activity in skindom I said it before and I'll say it again the new thing is skinning portable devices now not desktops so much anymore.

/me is listening to opera. *sigh*

// Doreen / 530 weeks and 3 days ago

Portable is for sissies! I'll wait a week and then I'll get on the phone and travel through the depths of ISP Helpdesk Hell.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Striborg - Entangled in the Black Roots of the Forest [Depressive Hibernation, 02]

// craeonics / 530 weeks and 3 days ago

Hmm, I don't know why Striborg gets such scathing reviews. It ain't half bad once you hook it up to a decent stereo.

/listen

*craeonics is listening to: Striborg - The Evil lurking in the Woods [Depressive Hibernation, 04]

// craeonics / 530 weeks and 3 days ago

Striborg is as disgusting as Burrrrzum! *Shivers* I for one am not surprised if he has bad reviews goes to show you anyone can make a sound and sell it. He's actually worser than Burzum (I can't believe I just said that!)

// Doreen / 530 weeks and 3 days ago

It actualy does sound somewhat like Burzum (in its second phase). The difference is that Varg (of Burzum) is actually quite a good bass player and as a consequence the bass features prominently in his songs.

The dude behind Striborg on the other hand sounds pretty generic. I guess you have to be really into this type of music to connect to his tunes.

// craeonics / 530 weeks and 2 days ago

/me kicks this thread back up again

I think I'm going to have to fix things before I move. This behaviour is really getting annoying now.

// craeonics / 530 weeks and 2 days ago

Fix it dutchy... well as much as I doooo hate to say this Striborg makes Burzum sound good! hehe

/me is listening to the sounds of crows and birds fighting over the worms from the after rain we had all night. I'm not sure anything feels as good as this cool rainy air I'm feeling right now.

// Doreen / 530 weeks and 2 days ago

Colleague switched from Mika to the Beatles and I didn't notice the change. What can one conclude from this? 1) Mika is a thief; and 2) the Beatles sound just as dated. Then again they are dated. Even in their psychedelic phase they sound dated.

// craeonics / 529 weeks and 4 days ago

The EU needs to decide on one capital: Brussels or Strassbourg and stop wasting our tax money on moving all those goverment bureaucrats that sit on there asses every six months.

Jeremy Camp - Take you back

(yet another one of those "C" tunes that leaves a nasty county flavor in your mouth after you hear it)

/me goes change the stream this one is sounding like a tin can...

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

Ahhh wait one of my favs just came on:

City on a Hill - God of Wonders

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

Say what! What's taking them so long dutchy? oh well once you're out you're out and then you're stuck out (I wish my mom would take me back) hehe

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

I knew it (Orange) was a shitty company because I've been a customer with them under their previous names (Casema/Wanadoo). But they were so dirt cheap I signed up.

The catch is, it's a year contract, so I'm stuck with them for the next twelve months. Perhaps I can void the contract by stating that they didn't deliver on their part of the deal. But perhaps I should just be patient and maybe it will resolve.

Then again, I signed up September 18th and still nothing.

// craeonics / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

That's a bit rediculous (even if it were free) by the time they give you service your contract will be over!

I would call them and tell them if service is not on in 3 more days you will be going down there to their office to feed them their dogfood contract.

Course since I'm female we just get to bat our eyes and get service going quickly. =)

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

I just browsed through their agreement thingie and it says:

"(4.1) De termijn van de Overeenkomst gaat in op de datum waarop de Toegangscode door Orange aan de Klant ter beschikking is gesteld en de Diensten zijn opgeleverd."

...which translates as: "the term of the agreement will commence when the access code is given to the customer by Orange and the services have been provided". The primary service I am looking for has not been provided, so therefore the contract hasn't started just yet.

// craeonics / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

If I were you I would find out what the delay is maybe they assume you have service? and there is some kind of mix up? They can't possibly think any customer would be happy about a rediculous service start up like you are off to. I mean if it takes them this long to give you service shouldn't you be alittle worried about what kind of service you will have once you get it! (that's if they ever get you going) hehe!

Call dutchy and see what stupid excuse they have atleast...

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

One thing about being out on your own is you will need to get used to calling up service companies and sitting on hold for the rest of your life just be sure to buy a wireless phone that has a speaker phone feature so you can clean your whole house while waiting on the phone for them at the same time!

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

Already called them numerous times and they claim they have trouble with "third parties", which turns out to be the dude who has to plug the ADSL-cable onto my line in the phone center, or rather, lack of dudes to do that.

I have zero confidence in these goons at the moment, but I'll give them some time still.

// craeonics / 527 weeks and 5 days ago

Dutchy you are one patient man!

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 4 days ago

No, I just hate (having to call/deal with) helpdesks.

// craeonics / 527 weeks and 4 days ago

And do you know one person on earth that does? That's why I said you need to get a phone w/ a speaker phone feature on it cuz you will need it once you're on your own, trust me (no way I'm gonna sit still for 40 mins on hold) either that or you learn how to do just about everything yourself in this world...

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 4 days ago

When I can't fix things myself (which is rare but happens on occasions) then I call but after waiting 40 mins I usually get some nut that don't even know his/her job so I try to be polite and hang up and call back for another 40 min wait and pray the next person has a brain! hehe

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 4 days ago

These bastards hide behind 20ct/minute lines, so you really don't want to wait for fourty minutes. And they usually are really oblivious.

// craeonics / 527 weeks and 4 days ago

If the hold music would be good atleast that would ease the pain but what are the chances of that! speaking of music and now thinking of you, you evil bunny me goes break out my Summoning Cd and get busy for today...

Summoning - Our Foes Shall Fall

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 4 days ago

I've yet to hit a person that knew their job on the first shot. I think the odds are something like 1 experienced person to 100 clueless ppl pretending to earn their paycheck on the other end of the phone.

// Doreen / 527 weeks and 4 days ago

I suspect they're just making up answers to keep the call as short as possible. Probably get paid for the number of calls they take per day.

// craeonics / 527 weeks and 4 days ago

/me is watching/listening to 3 Voor 12 on stage? (I think? anyways some stream)

London Calling (not sure what these guys are) hehe

// Doreen / 526 weeks and 6 days ago

3 voor 12 is an alternative radio show by one of the weirder broadcasting companies over here (VPRO). "London Calling" was a song of the Clash or the Who, I believe.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: WEFunk Radio

// crae_work / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

I have a confession to make? I can't stop watching the Dutch stuff. I have this link that has broadcast from all over the world and I have not been able to click on any of the other stations yet (not even once!):

[link]

The first link on the Dutch one is the one I watch cuz even our news is completely censored for a baby and your stuff seems completely uncensored? some is a bit shocking and turns my stomach and gets me upset at times (cuz it's gross) some makes me laugh cuz it's so silly and diff (and yesss even though I can't understand the words)

It's so weird dutchy...

// Doreen / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

These dutch black guys rapping is totally blowing my mind to. hehe!

It's just so weird looking that this stuff, it's so completely different dutchy.

// Doreen / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

No censorship over here. Funding for that 101.tv thing actually comes out of the tax payer's (read: my) pocket.

There are two types of Dutch TV really, first are the so called "public" channels. These get filled by broadcasting corporations that get government funding. So these public corporations don't own the channels (except the digital ones), but share them with other corporations. They broadcast on three (analogue) tv channels, a number of radio stations and an unknown number of internet/digital channels. They're government funded, but not government owned and the government does not have any say over what programs should or shouldn't be broadcast.

Second are the commercial channels/broadcasting corps, who own their own channels and don't have to share. But they are dependent on advertising revenues, so they tend to be somewhat more carefull.

// craeonics / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

Sorry but keep paying out of your pocket cuz me likes the 101.tv channel alot! hehe

It's so unreal I can't even believe my eyes sometimes, you prob would not understand but only our music is pretty much uncensored everything else is fit for a baby so your stuff is kinda shocking at times but still interesting cuz I can see how extremely different everything is from here to over there (I didn't realize just how diff before) somethings are kinda disgusting to me like I seen you guys have prostitutes that sit behind a glass windows legally? (btw "you" better not evennn be visiting those!) hehe

Just that it seems there is no shame over there maybe cuz of the desensatization of everything?

// Doreen / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

Or it could be I'm just watching a really raw dutch channel and missinterpreting things? But it's got everything under the sun, comedy, music, reality and other things that come out of left field that I have to turn off at times cuz it's like what in the world?

// Doreen / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

That's probably because you're watching a station that focuses on the 15-25 age bracket. Kids like to push the boundaries.

Look at me, old man speaking.

A lot of it is satire though. You miss out on that bit because you don't speak the language. The streaking girl on the front page, for instance, is a satirical response to a recent incident where employees of the government department she was standing in front of turned out to have access codes to the content management system of a press agency and had been illegally accessing and altering unpublished press releases. The message of that movie was along the lines of "you like peeking, then peek at this/something legally".

Prostitution was legalised a couple of years ago, because the government figured: "hmm, this thing exists, so let's not pretend it will go away and hey, if we make it legal, we can tax it too!". Opportunistic lot.

// craeonics / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

OMG! Tax on prostitution? What a message that is? As long as we can tax it you can do it! but maybe you guys have a lower rate of rape than we do over here come to think about it.

/me goes back to watching Dutch Urban Awards...

// Doreen / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

More like "as long as you can do it, we can tax it".

// craeonics / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

I don't know who is worser? Seems like no morales or something on both ends I mean true things are out there and happening everyday but when the Government starts legalizing it and taxing it? That seems to send a message it's okay and acceptable. I don't think drugs nor prostitution (though they will always be) should be legal or taxable by the Government? that seems to me as if the Government is just as disgusting and low as the ppl doing that stuff.

But then again I have no idea why I think that cuz I've never thought highly of any Government.

// Doreen / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

They're not taxing it specifically. It's just income tax. It's a job, after all.

// crae_work / 526 weeks and 5 days ago

I think this is a very sad world (sadder that I brought kids into it) I'm not sure sometimes if it's a good thing that I'm noticing they see things the way I do cuz most ppl seem just fine w/ it all.

/me goes get busy in paradise (have a good day dutchy)

No it's probably more like my machine is acting up again, it keeps freezing/locking for a few seconds and then it lets go. plus my stupid clock keeps lagging by 15 or more mins at a time (though I've changed the internet sync locations) it must be hardware related *sigh* I'm sooo sick of this you would not believe it.

// Doreen / 525 weeks and 4 days ago

New machine?

And aside from that, if you (accidentally) repeatedly click the "speak" button, you'll get multiple posts. I thought I'd fixed that somehow, but if I did, it must have been a magic spell, because it sure as hell is not in the code.

Rediculous! It's my Hard Disk and my Cmos Battery! but what is getting me upset is I tossed Gino my All in one Sony Desktop machine for his 16th B-day (so him and Sammy would stop fighting over the computer) and I just got this machine what in the world! Pretty soon I may have to sit myself behind a glass window and do a side job! j/k I'd never sell my soul for a buck but I may have to get a second job soon... *sigh*

What? Why? Cash flow issues? Stop buying them gadgets then.

Yup these kids are killing meeee! (and their gamming addictions are too)

Dutchy what happened did you get your internet thingie resolved yet?

// Doreen / 525 weeks and 3 days ago

And I hardly buy myself anything anymore (atleast like I used to) cuz every extra penny I get they always need things so I don't waste money as much like I did in the past, just these two guys are costing more as they are growing up (I seriously never thought past their diaper stage and I'm not joking! I don't think I see past the next hour when I do things)

// Doreen / 525 weeks and 3 days ago

But the iphone was a necessity! so be quiet! (I couldn't help that) hehe

Yesss I'm completely reckless and paying the price for it all now...

// Doreen / 525 weeks and 3 days ago

To quote Motorhead: "It's all about the game and how you play it". The costs are only going to rise until they get their own jobs and/or move out (whichever happens first).

Meanwhile, I'm still net-less. I cancelled my application with those goons and ordered it elsewhere. That was last week, so in two to four weeks this new club should deliver. Let's hope they don't mess up.

// craeonics / 525 weeks and 3 days ago

Oh well such is life Gino turned 16 and seems eager to see the world (so it's just a matter of time) and Sammy wellll he's only 10 so he'll be a while yet.

I'd go talk to a shrink about my problems but once I tell them that I like talking to my invisable dutchman they'll lock me up and toss the key! hehe

Anyways I hope you get your internet service hooked up soon what a royal pain. Hopefully all your other utility hookups were smoother.

// Doreen / 525 weeks and 3 days ago

Even worse, wait 'till they find out you've been talking to bunnies!

You'll manage. You've been doing this balancing act for years now.

The only things missing in my house right now are internet and the couch I bought three months ago and still hasn't been delivered. I've been told the shop has it in stock now and have to call back monday to make delivery appointments.

// craeonics / 525 weeks and 2 days ago

Good it sounds like things are coming together for you (slowly "but" surely)

Boy you looked right through me, mmmhmm

Play it cool

But I knew you knew

That cupid hit me, mmm mmm

You got me trippin, stumbling, flippin, fumbling

Clumsy cuz I'm fallin in love

You got me slippin, tumbling, sinking, fumbling

Clumsy cuz I'm fallin in love

So in love with you

/me goes hide from Black Friday over here and get to cleaning...

// Doreen / 524 weeks and 3 days ago

Wait, wait, wait! You're saying that that talentless hag, who wouldn't be be anywhere without her "star" producers, is better than Joy Divisions magnum opus?

Then again, you also prefer phones over desktops, so I'm not too surprised.

// craeonics / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

I never ever heard of Joy Divisions until I clicked on that link and they look to be Zzzzzz as for Fergie you're not the only one that dislikes her alot of girls over here hate her (me thinks it's simply jealousy)

And nope your wrong cuz I don't like phones at all I like PPC's and/or iPhones (bigggg difference) since you can't do anything w/ a phone but make phone calls but w/ the others you can run desktop apps from the palm of your hand and modify them to death like a desktop.

// Doreen / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

Perfect example:

Froggy sent out a Stardock newsletter recently (that I skimmed) focusing on how he thinks the Animated Desktop Wallpaper thingie will be a way of the future on Desktops?

Ummm you could not only animate the wallpaper on a PPC but also have it show real time and weather instances etc. who wants a boring wallpaper that simply changes to fake stuff.

// Doreen / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

3rd party apps are coming to the iPhone next year (I already have 3rd party apps on my phone now though) butttt when they do "you'll" see what I'm talking about when all the real devs dive in on it. probably about mid to end of next year even you will be amazed and see what I'm talking about you're just afraid of experimenting and change...

// Doreen / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

You got me trippin, stumbling, flippin, fumbling

Clumsy cuz I'm fallin in love

You got me slippin, tumbling, sinking, fumbling

Clumsy cuz I'm fallin in love

So in love with youuuu!

Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!!!

You're nuts cuz this is good... hehe

// Doreen / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

I've seen the iTouch (basically a stripped down iPhone without phone capabilities) in action, both normal and hacked, and it is just a mini-Mac. All kinds of programs available for it.

And no, I'm not getting one.

// craeonics / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

The iTouch (though slim and sexy) does not have the same capabilities of course as an iPhone so it's a total waste of money.

Anyways someday you will have to get "something" (though you probably will take the mark of the beast before getting a phone) hehe

I can skin pretty much "every single element" of the iphone now.

// Doreen / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

Nah, that's way too bright for me. I'll never have a mobile phone, because I don't want to be reachable (nor have my brain fried by the radiation).

// craeonics / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

Well believe it or not I can relate about not wanting to be reachable but w/ two asthmatic kids and work I've no choice so I make my phone as fun as possible, anyways g'night Mr. Dark and Dramatic. (and alil color wouldn't kill you)

// Doreen / 524 weeks and 2 days ago

Well alot of good surge protectors are, my machine of course is still under warranty since it's new so I had the tech come to fix the hard drive and CMOS bat today and he says "oh seems it's not your CMOS bat but rather your Motherboard and your Hard Drive"

/me tosses that stupid thing out the window and gets to installing work files on Gino's Toy now. *sigh*

I just don't believe it and I'm truely hating computers now.

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 6 days ago

You just do work from your "phone".

/me gets kicked

// crae_work / 523 weeks and 5 days ago

I don't have much faith in surge protectors though. I suspect they are way too slow to react when an actual surge occurs. I know for a fact that the fuses the electric company uses burn through faster than a surge protector or earth grounding can kick in (my father trashed the central fuse in my power cabinet twice while working on my house).

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Mr. Oizo - Analogue Worms attack

// crae_work / 523 weeks and 5 days ago

Wise guy (but I don't think they don't have pcAnywhere for iphone yet)

Yes obviously surge protectors are useless they said my Hard Drive and Motherboard got fried somehow and the machine is brand new.(the tech is coming back again today w/ a new Motherboard to fix that and the Hard Drive)

And stop slave driving your Dad he's suppose to be relaxing and enjoying his retirement! You lazy bunny!

// crae_work / 523 weeks and 4 days ago

Dutchy yeah tryyyy to justify it. (besides I think that's what he suppose to do during retirement)

I hope you let me see pics when you guys are done I wanna see the after since you let me peek at the before shots.

I hope I'm not being too nosey on you (but I can't help it sorry)

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 3 days ago

More than three months after I ordered it, my couch will finally be delivered tomorrow, somewhere between 11:00 and 15:00. If those movers damage it while carrying it up the stairs, I'm going to toss them out of the window (and it's a long way down).

After that, I just need to get a coffee table and then I can move.

// craeonics / 523 weeks and 3 days ago

Hooray! /me is excited for you dutchy! I hope you're gonna be happy there (now I have to mentally picture you there instead of in a sleeping bag at your moms house? this will be strange) hehe!

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 3 days ago

Ugh! now I just pictured you in your house w/ a wife and kids (do not send me pics of that please)

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 3 days ago

Hell no. I value my peace and quiet.

// craeonics / 523 weeks and 3 days ago

/me tries not to smile here at work... hehe

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 3 days ago

Alright, my couch arrived, and just as I expected, it's way too big for my house. This means there is only one way to position it in the room.

Also bought a big ass banner/tapisty/gobelin to put on the wall. I'll take some pictures after that is put up.

// craeonics / 523 weeks and 2 days ago

Okay me can't wait to see it! Hopefully they did not bang it around too much trying to get it up to your house that must be a complete nightmare w/ you being so high up?

Remember I told you I had an old 64 inch TV? (It was a monster but the thing took up my whole living room) Well I finally decided to sell it I'm going to get a smaller TV but atleast this will be a LCD flat screen so I'll have alot more room (they are coming w/ a truck to pick it up today)

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 2 days ago

/me goes back to installing my whole soul back on this basically new machine. The technician told me I better get a surge protector for my machine "and" then get a surge protector for my surge protector. hehe!

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 2 days ago

I still can't believe what happened cuz I've always been careful about this stuff but it seems everything always fries anyways...

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 2 days ago

Btw what is a gobelin??? guess I'll have to wait to find out (but I've never heard of that before)

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 2 days ago

/me installs Limewire back (most necessary)

R. Kelly - Whine for me (and yesss R. Kelly which I don't normally like) butttt this one is excellente!)

Gobelin is a synonym for tapistry: [link]

Mine isn't fancy ofcourse, but plain old polyester. But it is 1.5 by 2 meters (roughly 5 by 7 feet). This one to be exact: [link] (yeah, yeah, corny).

// craeonics / 523 weeks and 2 days ago

Hmm interesting nothing I would have expected to see "you" choosing? (since of course it's not black nothiness) hehe

But obviously it should make your pad warmer.

I still want to see it up cuz I never seen those before dutchy...

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 2 days ago

Parents are going on a holiday (again) this week, so I'll be taking care of the cats, but I'll probably move next weekend. That is, if I'm not bugged by one of those blasted birthdays or family members.

// craeonics / 523 weeks and 1 day ago

I suspect now that your Dad is retired they will be traveling even more you probably should consider adopting the cats so they will really be free!

// Doreen / 523 weeks and 19 hours ago

And the saga continues *sigh* course I forgot to call the guy back thinking oh well everything is fine now and I noticed my clock is not keeping track of time yet again! This cannot possibly be the CMOS battery cuz they replaced the whole Motherboard! Don't care about the computer clock itself but when my phone syncs to the machine all my reminder alarms that are set get messed up! argh!

// Doreen / 522 weeks and 6 days ago

In other words: time for a new machine. Get ready for a trip back into helldesk land.

// craeonics / 522 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm so upset w/ this mess I feel like crying it's rediculous. That guy that tried to contact me on Friday they told me was off today (my luck) so I of course I got transferred to other ppl over and over again which meant I had to tell the whole history of what has been going on w/ this thing over and over again. Everything else feels fine I'm quiting on this I'll have to not sync the phone to the computer and let the stupid clock issue rest. I'll just have to keep manually resetting the clock when it lags too far behind that is... *sigh* (I must have picked a complete lemon)

// Doreen / 522 weeks and 6 days ago

What do you think it could be dutchy? What else would be related if it's not the CMOS Bat or Motherboard?

These nuts were telling me to do all the "common sense" stuff which I've done before I even began calling about this issue in the first place, such as set the clock to not sync w/ internet, set the clock tooooo sync w/ internet, change internet syncing spots, change the clock itself then restart the computer, check the time zone, bla bla bla (totally rediculous common sense stuff) I don't think they hear a word I say...

Anyways I'm giving one more call today to see if I can get that guy that tried to contact me on Friday (yesterday he called off so they gave me drones as you call them) hehe

Throughout the day I keep noticing it lagging 6, 20, 45 to a couple of hours at a time as if it gets stuck and loses track of time while I'm on it until I manually fix it and bring it current again.

// Doreen / 522 weeks and 5 days ago

Assuming you had your drives and motherboard replaced, did a clean install, have the machine running all the time (so the long term effect can be observed) and do not sync (to eliminate that as a possibility), then if the clock is being erratic, I'd say the little chip on the motherboard that generates the clock pulses is damaged. Or perhaps the BIOS is wonky.

// craeonics / 522 weeks and 5 days ago

Yes the guy replace the Hard Drive and of course had to do a clean install after that and yes the Motherboard was replaced w/ a new one and I seen him going into the BIOS and messing around in there but anyways Dutchyyyyy!!!!!

They're send me a new machine! And it has upgrades! (since the thing has been upgraded all over apparently) They said I should have it before X-mas!

What a relief and they actually did have me in tears I just could not believe it, it's as if they don't hear me or something.

// Doreen / 522 weeks and 5 days ago

Yay!

Now I suspect you sabotaged your machine yourself to finally push them over the edge. "I've had it with that Carrillo woman. Send her a new machine already".

// crae_evil / 522 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe! noooo silly (I wouldn't do that even though the thought may have crossed my mind "subconciously of course")

I actually was nervous to say yes to the new machine cuz the guy already fixed the hard drive and motherboard and the computer finally feels right but they can't figure out the clock issue and I almost let it go but I remembered what you said that if it was a surge that created this mess in the first place things may keep going wrong no matter what so I decided to forget them trying to come again to try to troubleshoot the clock. I sent you the specs in your mailbox (don't worry I'm almost done bugging the hell out of you w/ my problems invisible dutchman!)

Fortunately my floor is well isolated, so I only hear murmurs.

// craeonics / 522 weeks and 1 day ago

So far I'm not enjoying things though. I was already short on time and with all these extra chores, it's rush rush all the way. I need a vacation.

Yay! Let's hope this one doesn't break down.

In other news, when I ordered cable tv (cable tv over here is different from on your end, namely: a) a few dozen channels instead of six trizilion; and b) everyone has it) for my house I got the offer for digital tv for free. I'm Dutch and Dutch can't say no to free stuff, so I now have digital tv.

They offer a (free) standard package, consisting of the same channels you get with your regular cable account (plus a bunch of utter crap regional channels) and a number of additional channels for which you have to pay a fee. I'm not going to do that ofcourse, but the first two weeks, you get access to all packages (a hundred or so channels) as an incentive.

So the past and coming week, I have that 101 channel and at least seven music channels, one of which plays electronic music 24/7 without commercials or breaks. Guess what my tv has been tuned to lately (not that I have time to watch).

Trouble is, their playlist is somewhat limited. If I hear Bob Sinclar one more time, I'm going to murder someone...

And now me hears Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar (Marco V remix) playing in my head now...

// Doreen / 521 weeks and 3 days ago

I don't know how it is over there around this time of year Dutchy but on this end all you hear every where you go is Merry Christmas music (completely nausiating)

/me goes find some peto for my tummy and go to bed early I actually feel sick just from listening to it.

// Doreen / 521 weeks and 3 days ago

Believe me, Bob Sinclar is far worse than any christmas tune you can think of. I hope the man doesn't have the bright idea to record a christmas song. That would be sheer agony.

// craeonics / 521 weeks and 2 days ago

Anyway, it's all silence at the moment. Busy studying.

// craeonics / 521 weeks and 2 days ago

I never heard of him and judging from what you just said I won't even try to look him up.

Get to your studies!

/me goes get an early start on things over here today...

// Doreen / 521 weeks and 2 days ago

/me kicks this thread up again

I have to give a verbal report (yuck, shit is sucking up all my time) on monday and have an exam on wednesday (which I failed two times before and for which I have yet to start studying), but after that I have two weeks off and can finally fix this board.

// craeonics / 521 weeks and 2 days ago

Don't worry about it I'll try to stop bugging you so much you better take care of that report and those exams.

I'm just reinstalling things bookmarks etc. I took the modem out of the defective machine and installed it into this one (stupid screws are insanely small!) but that's as far as I'll go I don't do motherboards or hard drives and hate the letters "BIOS" (looks freaky)

// Doreen / 521 weeks and 2 days ago

Installing a hard drive is easier than PCI cards, really.

Anyway, exam and speech done. Finally got some time off again. Except from work, daily chores, two reports I still need to write, more exams, etcetera. Fortunately, I've got the next two weeks off and those exams and reports are in half and late January.

// craeonics / 520 weeks and 5 days ago

Take a rest dutchy you've been pushing it w/ moving and all. I'm trying to bug you so much over here but I miss you!

This machine they sent me seems pretty solid so far (I'll be giving it a good test run tonight playing some WOW to see for sures though)

// Doreen / 520 weeks and 3 days ago

"not" to bug you (where do my words go?)

// Doreen / 520 weeks and 3 days ago

It's strange. I've had so many chores these last few weeks that now that I am somewhat without chores, I find myself at a loss what to do.

That is completely ridiculous ofcourse. I'm really turning into an adult now. Yuck!

// craeonics / 520 weeks and 2 days ago

You mean you're not really 16 stilllll? But yeah this adulthood thing I'm still trying to adjust too (specially since I'm a mom it really messes w/ my head at times)

Don't worry by the time we adjust it will all be over... hehe

// Doreen / 520 weeks and 2 days ago

/me tosses you a blanket it looks pretty cold over there, we melt over here and you freeze over there.

// Doreen / 520 weeks and 2 days ago

That's what you get from living up north. Now if only the heater will stop copping out on me at night. There should be an even temperature all day round, but it sometimes just lets things cool down late at night (at which point I really start to freeze).

// craeonics / 519 weeks and 6 days ago

That's when you should probably break out the wool blanket, at any rate atleast you get to feel Christmas weather over here it still feels like summer (we're still hitting around 80)

// Doreen / 519 weeks and 6 days ago

The snow has already melted. Typical. Bing Crosby can go back in his coffin again. No "White Christmas" over here.

Anyhow, /me goes eat Christmas dinner, enjoy yours

// craeonics / 519 weeks and 6 days ago

Thank you dutchy but I'm sick of food we've been eating over here for days so I'm fasting today, me and the kids and my family all went to Knotts Berry farm Sunday (which is an amusement park over here) and we did our Christmas gathering that day, so today me and my kids are just gaming it. hehe

Argh, that talentless hag of a Fergie on tv again. For education's sake and in the name of Good Taste, here's the "song" Fergilicious is based on. I know the lyrics of this one from the heart, so to speak:

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: J.J. Fad - Supersonic: [link] (rather blocky vid)

// craeonics / 519 weeks and 13 hours ago

Stop picking on Fergie shes got more money than you and I put together (plus a few more ppl) so she must be doing something right! But I have to agree her Fergilicious tune is rediculous I like her Clumsy tune better...

Anyways you got a new pad and new year now so this should be your bestest year coming!

I'm pretty boring since I don't party or drink so I could care less about these New Year thingies (or any other over rated Holiday) I'm off to go rent a few vids for me and my kids.

Have a good one.

/me tosses confetti on you!

// Doreen / 519 weeks and 12 hours ago

hehe! oh noooo I don't know which is worser that vid for Supersonic or what Fergie did to it!

// Doreen / 519 weeks and 11 hours ago

Welllll I'm not off to a very good start this year, I "had" a black leather backpack, went out shopping and took it off and put it down for a second or two turned around and it was gone. =(

I guess now I'll be spending the next week in credit card customer service hell!

// Doreen / 518 weeks and 5 days ago

I have no idea why I keep running to you w/ my issues. hehe

If I did New Years Resolutions I would have to put "Stop running to dutchy w/ my problems"

Anyways, I'm sorry me tries really hard this time to leave you alone (sorry bout that dutchy)

// Doreen / 518 weeks and 5 days ago

Looks like someone has been doing a little proletarian shopping and got him/herself a brand spanking new backpack.

But wait, your backpack was stolen, so you're trying to get a refund now?

// craeonics / 518 weeks and 4 days ago

/me goes look up the proletarian word but no was not buying a backpack I had a purse/backpack anyways everything is fine...

// Doreen / 518 weeks and 3 days ago

Reviving this thread with the best Frank Boeijen song ever.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Frank Boeijen - Kronenburg Park

// craeonics / 515 weeks and 5 days ago

Welll it's Sunday so be quiet! hehe

/me goes get my Worship on today from home since it's raining and I'm too lazy to take them to Church today...

La laaaaa laaaaa!

Chris Tomlin - Indescribable

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea

Creations revealing Your majesty

From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring

Every creature unique in the song that it sings

All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable,

You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.

You are amazing God

All powerful, untamable,

Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim

You are amazing God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go

Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow

Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light

Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night

None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable,

You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name

You are amazing God

All powerful, untamable,

Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim

You are amazing God

You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable,

You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.

You are amazing God

All powerful, untamable,

Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim

You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable,

You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.

You are amazing God

Incomparable, unchangeable

You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same

You are amazing God

Oh, for Christ's sake. This is my punishment for listening to Striborg all weekend. Plus some extra beating:

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: The PussyCat Dolls - Dontcha

// crae_work / 515 weeks and 17 hours ago

hehe!!!

Get back to your books you school boy...

// Doreen / 515 weeks and 13 hours ago

The Opposites strike again with killer beats. So far, I like all the songs I've heard of theirs, except one stupid ballad. Video seems to have footage from some crazy movie or series or something I've never heard about.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: The Opposites ft. Sef - Me Nikes [link]

// craeonics / 514 weeks and 5 days ago

Ack, evil R&B on the telly!

// craeonics / 514 weeks and 5 days ago

*Cough* I actually like That Opposites thing you posted (though I've got no idea what they are saying as usual)

/me goes peek at that link again...

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 5 days ago

Oew Oewwww Mmmm mmmmm! (funky vid though)

Actually like this one the bestest...

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 5 days ago

[link]

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 5 days ago

Actually your vids are not much diff than the crazy stuff on this side dutchy. hehe

/me go listen to:

[link]

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 5 days ago

Ack! That's terrible!

// craeonics / 514 weeks and 4 days ago

Oh be quiet Mr. Burzumy lover! Dutchy can you put a link on the top of this thread that can zap us to the bottom of it? Or would that be too much work/time to do? If it is then don't worry about it.

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 4 days ago

I need to fix things here badly. Exam period has just past and the next semester starts next week, so I should have some time this weekend to work on things.

// craeonics / 514 weeks and 3 days ago

Okay thank you dutchyyy. (if even just a link on the top of the thread to jump to the bottom of the thread would be good if it's not alot of work)

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 3 days ago

/me is listening to this crazy machine here at work choking already and I've not even begun to work on it yet! oh boyyy...

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 3 days ago

In the meantime though, there's always the [end] key, which'll take you to the bottom of the page.

// craeonics / 514 weeks and 3 days ago

Hmmm can you believe I did not know that? hehe

(but I don't have an end key on my phone)

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 3 days ago

Phones don't need end keys, since phones are not computers. If they want to play computer, then they should provide you with an end key as well.

Meanwhile I did some work on the board. If it doesn't fall over and die from this post, the "thread missing after post" thing has been solved. And I've added a "last post" link on the thread list which should take you directly to the last post in a thread.

// craeonics / 514 weeks and 2 days ago

Oh I like it!

/me goes test it out on my phone!

(thank you dutchy)

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 2 days ago

Perfecto!!!

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 2 days ago

I also took a poke at adding feeds, but then a look at the clock told me it was probably enough for now. Feeds aren't that hard. Just a lot of changes in a lot of places.

// craeonics / 514 weeks and 1 day ago

Well can you just add one feed to this thread? I have a really neat app I use on my phone that tosses a badge up when you hit this thread. =)

Your fault that you don't take it down so I plan on bugging you forever here!

Thanks dutchy for fixing the scrolling issue for me I appreciate it cuz it literally would take me a long time to get to the bottom when I would come peek on my phone...

/me is listening to the sound of rain (music to my ears) *sigh*

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 1 day ago

I'll do my share and do an article (yesss on the iphone which I know you hate, but you better promise me you will publish it anyways you lazy bunny)

// Doreen / 514 weeks and 1 day ago

Boy since you got your house you hardly ever come out to play anymore!!! If you're still trying to find the perfect soap for your dishwasher over there let me tell you there is none. (they all leave spots!)

Oh well we come into this world alone and leave it alone too soooo me goes listen to my tunes "alone!" hehe

The Fray - How To Save a Life

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 6 days ago

Yeah right, I'm just as active as before. Umm, minus chore time that is. As for dishwasher soap, the brand I use (Sun) seems to work although there are some spots on knives some times.

// craeonics / 513 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe!!! dutchy I hate you and I wish I never ever read you!

(Alright I lied there is a nearlyyy perfect dishwasher soap it's called Electrasol powerball tabs)

And I just miss you that's all! guess you're right about not much going on in skindom anyways these days and my current obsession as you know is skinning the iphone which is not really something for Tek. (guess you're off the hook you lazyyy bunny)

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 6 days ago

Other than not much going on in Skindom at the moment, the reason for me not posting (much) news is that I put Tek on the operating table some months ago to streamline things and then got caught up in all kinds of other stuff. So the patient is still awaiting the operation.

// craeonics / 513 weeks and 6 days ago

Well I think the patient died already and is awaiting an autopsy now, and I'm pretty sure the few news guys you had hand feeding you any news for us are tired of waiting for you too (but that is just an assumption)

I keep forgetting dutchy you put a quick jump link and I still keep scrolling when I come here on my computer. hehe!

(cept the couple of times I was on my phone then of course it's a "total" Blessing)

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 6 days ago

Unlike people, code can be successfully ressurrected. I just need to do that some time.

// craeonics / 513 weeks and 6 days ago

Argh! I did it again! (I keep forgetting about that link up there) anyways I don't know what you're talking about cuz the site already seems extremely streamlined and it's so light it floats.

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 5 days ago

For instance, every page starts with the same twenty lines of code. I really need to group those and put them in a single file which I can include. Changing things in those lines is a bitch at the moment because I have to change things in so many files.

// craeonics / 513 weeks and 5 days ago

Stop complaining you lazy bunny and just do it if that invisable stuff is bugging you Mr. Perfectionist.

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 5 days ago

Finally something good (hasn't been anything decent at all lately really)

Alicia Keys ft. Damien Marley - No One

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 5 days ago

Hmm obviously your lil cyber nephew seems to know your taste in tunes.

Hey Mom tell that crae guy to check this out:

[link]

I find it totally disgusting but he's right you just might like it...

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 2 days ago

I'd take that over Alicia Keys any day of the week. That one song they have there sounds a bit like early Dimmu (before they went theatrical). Not very special, but not to bad either.

// craeonics / 513 weeks and 2 days ago

Alicia was hatched were I was hatched (NY) so shes fine by meeee! (you just have no good taste Mr. Burzummy lover)

Some curse from Hell jumped Gino and he's driving me crazy w/ screaming growling tunes. (I'm hoping it will pass soon) hehe

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 2 days ago

were = where *sigh!*

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 2 days ago

You mean he actually developed a good taste in music? Okay, so it's probably just a phase and in ten years he'll be listening to country.

// craeonics / 513 weeks and 1 day ago

Country = Ultimately disgusting (I'd have to disown him as my son if that happens)

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 1 day ago

Though this seems to be their "only" good tune it jussss might move me out of 1st gear for today... Zzzzz

Goldfrapp - Strict Machine

// Doreen / 513 weeks and 18 hours ago

Playing all kind of tunes here at work. All the Mac-ers have iTunes and share their music, so I can pick shares. Currently explorer the depths of Ladytron.

// crae_work / 513 weeks and 17 hours ago

Hey our thread is getting cold! me comes warm it up w/:

The Afters - Beautiful Love

(been ages since I listened to this one)

// Doreen / 512 weeks and 12 hours ago

Random playlist here at work led us to The Doors. Turns out they stink. God, this is boring.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: The Doors - Riders on the Storm

// crae_work / 511 weeks and 6 days ago

I know two tunes by the Doors that one and "Come on Baby light my Fire" (or something like that?) I'm not sure if I actually ever listened to either one of those tunes completely through all the way to the end (the guy is totally monotone)

// Doreen / 511 weeks and 6 days ago

It all stinks. Very repetitive and whining, and that's coming from me who listens to very repetitive music.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Madonna - Holiday

// crae_work / 511 weeks and 6 days ago

/me is listening to rain (which has me completely and totally zapped)

// Dor_rain / 511 weeks and 5 days ago

And me is stilllll listening to rain and not about to waste perfect weather sitting on the Freeway in traffic driving to work for 2 hours.

/me jumps back in bed (I'm completely knocked out from this rain, I cannot believe this)

// Doreen / 511 weeks and 3 days ago

Rain here as well, be it indoor rain. The bloody water intake hose of my washing machine is leaking. Grrr... Everything breaks down in this house.

// craeonics / 511 weeks and 3 days ago

One thing about a house is you will surely become a jack of all trades. When I had my house I had to learn all kinds of things in order not to have to pay to fix everything that broke down all the time (which they usually want you to pay w/ your soul to fix)

Just don't do what I did I fixed everything and then out of frustration I sold it so the new owners got a beautiful house when all I had was a broken down one.

/me is listening to complete silence at the moment rain stopped and it's cool and perfecto right now...

// Doreen / 511 weeks and 3 days ago

Fortunately my parent live around the corner, so I go "fix it" and they come fix things (and bill me afterwards).

// craeonics / 511 weeks and 3 days ago

So you mean they fix it "right" after you break it more?

/me is watching some crazy Indian music video at the dentist office. (that time again for me and my kids)

// Doreen / 511 weeks and 2 days ago

I didn't break nothing. This house it breaking down fine by itself. Doesn't seem to need my help for that.

Anyway, TV at the dentist? My dentist only has magazines for the rich and famous (for some reason it's always about yauchting or designer furniture and stuff).

// craeonics / 511 weeks and 1 day ago

Well mine has a TV by every chair in every room so that helps cuz me and my kids are scared of Dentist and Doctors. (Japanese Dentist so strange he had Indian Music Vids on yesterday) hehe

Don't worry about things breaking down in your house dutchy cuz that gives you the opportunety to fix things "your way" when you get done then it will really be "your house"

// Doreen / 511 weeks and 1 day ago

Actually I know that is not very comforting hearing that when it will begin to feel as if every stupid dollar you make is being fed into fixing your house but when my Stepfather gifted me his house it was worth 120.000 when I got done w/ fixing everything in it and selling it I heard the value was worth over 300.000 =(

I did not know about things such as that so someone ripped me off that was wiser than me. All I knew at the time is I was tired of fixing things and tired of my family bugging me constantly to move in and out w/o helping me at all. (obviously by now you know how stupid I can be)

// Doreen / 511 weeks and 1 day ago

You're still not living under a bridge, so I'd say you're doing a good job at keeping your "stupidity" in check.

// crae_work / 511 weeks and 1 day ago

Nah my stupidity is still not in check the house was given to me for a reason I did not even see at the time and I got so selfish I tossed it (It would have been my biggest Blessing) so I got what I deserved for being lazy and selfish...

Anyways enough of that, just fix your house and whistle why you work. hehe

// Doreen / 511 weeks and 15 hours ago

Looks to be one of those days already so me goes dive for my ancient old classy tunes:

Petey Pablo - Freek a Leek

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 5 days ago

/me looks at the clock

Aha, time to sing the Seven Dwarves song and get out of here.

// crae_work / 510 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe you nut!

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 5 days ago

And me comes back grumbling to herself that you are soooo sarcastic! you know exactly what I meant about the whistling thing! anywaysssss Dutchy you have to check out this flick I rented last night when it comes out over there it's called "Beowulf" really neat the way they made it.

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 5 days ago

Wasn't that the flick where they used real actors but digitally rerendered them? I've seen an older Beowolf film with my hero Christopher Lambert, but that, like all his movies, was dreadful.

And I know what about what whistling thing?

// crae_work / 510 weeks and 5 days ago

Yes that's the one it's relly kind of unusual and unique the way they did the animation one min you think for a split second you are watching a real actor then the next you realize it's an animated character. They just released it over here the other day.

And about the whistling thing I thought you were being sarcastic what I meant was don't complain about fixing your house just whistle while you work and it will pay off cuz in the end you'll have something worth while even if it don't feel like it now.

I've been out of my house now for about 7 years or so and "jusss now" I look back and realized what I did. All that stupid complaining I did, I swear I didn't even see it until now and my Mom and Stepfather are so good they "never once" throw it in my face (which makes me feel even worse!)

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

[link]

This guy? I don't recall seeing him in any movies?

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

I just spotted on that link of movies that guy made Beowulf so I guess that guy made an earlier version of it? (though I've never seen Beowulf until the other day) But you should check out this newer version it was pretty good. (atleast something totally unique to anything I've ever seen as far as the animation is concerned)

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

Be grateful, Christopher Lambert has the charisma and acting skills of a brick wall. Alright, I'm probably being unfair, but I've never seen him doing any decent acting in any of his movies.

And regarding the house bit, I'm just shocked that things break down so much. And now I'm getting all kinds of municipal tax bills and shit. Bloody thieves they all are!

// crae_work / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

I know dutchy, be careful cuz it gets veryyyy frustrating. I felt like all I did was work and then use every single penny to fix the house and then when I would get done fixing and got a small break from that thennnn the stupid house tax bills came in to hit me! plus everyone thought cuz Doreen had a house let's use her garage as storage, lets move in w/ her for free and kick back for a while, lets have "ALL" the Holiday festivities at her pad she's got room!

They wore me down completely and I felt like it was not my house and all I did was work, fix and pay so I ran away from it (But I should have stayed the corse) Now I see it helped my sister and my brother out and it kept my whole family together. (one of my biggest mistakes)

But just keep investing in your house it's worth it...

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

Plus of course down the line when the day comes and I kick the bucket I have no house to give to my two little boys. (So stupid)

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

Ah, now I know why you move every six months. It's to keep the nasty relatives away. Which reminds me that today is my sister's birthday.

// crae_work / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe noooo silly it's the stupid leases over here in Cali you sign a lease when you rent so that the rent stays at the same for one year at the end of the lease/year they(the landlord) has the right to raise the rent according to the property value at that time etc. so sometimes your looking at 100 dollar increase in your monthly rent (so I normally move)

However this Condo I'm currently renting (the one I showed you pics of) the landlord said he promised me he would never raise my rent as long as I stay (If that is true I will be here a longgg time cuz I like it here I like my room upstairs something about the cross air breeze that is perfect)

Go spoil your sister today for her Birthday!

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

That is ridiculous. That would mean you'd almost be forced to move every year. /me states the obvious

// crae_work / 510 weeks and 4 days ago

No kidding right now my rent is 1400 if he did raise the rent every year I'd be moving real quick!!! But so far he looks to be keeping his word. I'm in a good area for my boys (schools are great) So it seems I'll be renting this condo for a while.

/me is listening to this rediculous machine choking on me again (I think it's possessed!)

// Dor_work / 510 weeks and 3 days ago

Moving over great distances would mean they would have to change schools a lot, which is not so good. So yeah, better stick to one place.

/me goes eat cake at sister's place (right around the corner)

// craeonics / 510 weeks and 2 days ago

I'm "hoping" I can stay put so Gino can finish up at this High School cuz it's rough on them when I have to move so much. Gino was straight F's at the last school but now he's all A's and B's plus he's hanging out w/ some German exchange student who is helping him grow mentally I think Gino speaks German!!! (so unreal Dutchy it blows my mind)

Sam I never have any problems w/ (he's an old man living inside an 11 year old kids body very strange. Sometimes Gino will be blazing that creepy growling evil stuff whilst Sammy is on the piano playing classical tunes (and of course I'm over here listening to Lil Jon) hehe

So it seems your family all lives close to each other? that's good dutchy. (and convenient)

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 2 days ago

Watch out for young people listening to classical music. They'll end up being psychopaths! I suspect the evil music thing is just a phase, so don't worry about that. I don't intend to get past that phase though.

There is a bit of a family aggregation here, yeah. Sister lives around the corner, parents on the other side of the graveyard and my aunt lives in this neighbourhood as well. Couple of other relatives a bit further away (fifteen minute bike ride).

// craeonics / 510 weeks and 2 days ago

hehe! Don't scare me like that Sammy already is spooking me.

I can see you already hopping on your bike to make your weekly trips all around the neighborhood for the "Help! my computer is not working can you come over and fix it" for your family. That's what mine do to me. This is about the furthest I've moved from my family and I'm currently only 15 mins away (drive time) from my sister and my Mom and Stepfather cept my crazy brother who moved to Nevada to finally buy his own house where they are cheaper (so he's a about 3 hours away now)

His wife let him out of his cage last week and he came to surprise me again and we had our WOW marathon but he told me he is going to sell his house "yes already" and move back here cuz he can't stand being away from us all. My Mom is like not sure she is too happy about that news. hehe!!!

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 2 days ago

Seems like there will be more World of Warcraft marathons coming up.

Computer helpdesk questions go like this these days:

Mom: "Help! My printer isn't working!"

Me: "So? Take it back to the shop then"

And for some reason whenever a computer breaks down somewhere, it's always my fault. Curious, since my machines never fall over.

// craeonics / 510 weeks and 1 day ago

Hopefully not cuz his wife is extremely jealous (yes even of his own family) and he needs to put his wifes feelings first so I'm hoping he stays put for his own sake.

You're mean!!! you mean you don't even go tryyy to fix her computer or printer problems?

/me smacks you!

And you machines don't never falls over cuz you're not a dare devil like most you've prob got like 5 standard apps your black wall and that's about it.

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 1 day ago

What can I say? Some people have issues. I my mother's case she just refuses to learn how to do things, even trivial stuff like transfering photos from a digital camera. And there's a scroll wheel on her mouse, but she won't use it and prefers to click the down arrow on scrollbars a thousand times.

// craeonics / 510 weeks and 1 day ago

hehe! that sounds "exactly" like my mom dutchy she does the same exact thing no matter how many times I show her! she does not use the wheel on her mouse she keeps using the scrollbars. (drives me crazy)

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 1 day ago

And since it's cap on our Moms time, don't forget to set her email client to "Auto Delete" so when she exits her mail it deletes the junk for her cuz if she is like my Mom and you don't she'll have like 50 million mails in her delete folder from her sister that have tons of links to rediculous flash joke sites from months and months accumulated...

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 18 hours ago

Oh no, she seems to have that under control. She deletes them herself.

// craeonics / 510 weeks and 16 hours ago

Wellll my Mom deletes them but then they "all" sit in her Deleted box for ages piling up until her box explodes...

/me is having a hard time trying to whistle while I work today and currently debating Crunk or Christian? (don't feel like working today)

// Doreen / 510 weeks and 15 hours ago

Crunktian?

"Shake your booty! Praise the Lord for them booties, hallelujah! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ for them fine booties! Now get down!"?

// crae_work / 509 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe! /me smacks the hell out of you, you nut. Hmmm I might have to go look for some of that Crunktian stuff.

Dutchy this thread is loading painfully slow.

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 6 days ago

Loading pretty swift here. But perhaps the server was busy or something. Alternative, I could things like paging (split the thread over multiple pages), but those are future plans.

/listen

* craeonics found some Portishead on his work network and it rocks (as always)

// crae_work / 509 weeks and 6 days ago

In the past I never really like paged threads but now over time I've learned to appreciate them so that might be a good choice for the future. Either that or dump the thread and start a new one? but then we'd lose all our classy tunes we've posted over time! hehe

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm losing it now cuz this guy is sounding totally Country and I think the tune is kinda pretty. hehe!

(Yessss streaming my "C" stuffezzz)

Bebo Norman - Falling Down

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 6 days ago

They're singing about me again.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: EMF - Unbelievable

// crae_work / 509 weeks and 5 days ago

/me comes poke you in the eye and leave...

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 5 days ago

And me is listening to happy little birdies singing outside my window (prob all happy cuz theyyy don't have to work for a living!) hehe

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 5 days ago

Me listens to something I've not heard in ages (and your utmost favorite dutchy)

dc talk - Consume me

// Dor_evil / 509 weeks and 5 days ago

Joy, it's DC Talk. I so miss their music. Fortunately a couple of demons in forests-cd's will arrive upon my doorstep tomorrow to cleanse all this piousness (or is that "piety"?).

/me goes clean out the dishwasher

// craeonics / 509 weeks and 5 days ago

*rolls her eyes* and grumbles evilll bunny!

/me prays your mailman delivers them to your neighbor instead...

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 5 days ago

Oh look, there's actually a Woodtemple cd in there. This may sound strange, but I had forgotten which cd's I had ordered.

/me goes cook dinner

// craeonics / 509 weeks and 4 days ago

Hmmm I guess he ain't hearing my prayers lately? Woodtemple?

/me goes back to listening to your lil cyber nephew Sammy the wheezer and plays more nurse...

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 4 days ago

Hmm, strange music. It's sort of like all kinds of rolled up layers that unroll one after the other, adding layer upon layer. And then there's that flute...

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Woodtemple - The Shields light [Sorrow of the Wind, 03]

// craeonics / 509 weeks and 4 days ago

I swear you are just like the devil! and you knowwww I have to go check that out. *sigh*

/me proceeds veryyy cautiously to check that out...

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 4 days ago

OMG Ack!!!!

[link]

Sounds like the same stuff Gino listens to? it begins all tranquil and nice and then startles my heart (like sharp needles piercing my heart) I cannot take that! Why do they ruin it w/ that growling? Totally disgusting...

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 4 days ago

And please don't say that's cuz I listen to Christian tunes cuz that has nothing to do w/ it cuz I listen to the worse trash out there (sometimes so bad I can't even list those ones here)

Anyways I was poking around alil more and that def is some of the stuff your other lil cyber nephew listens to (specially when he gets pissed off at me then he really turns it up)

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 4 days ago

Gino's latest let's torture her tunes are from these two band members they're pretty unknown (they must be cuz he actually has had responses from the girl in that band) the band I think he told me is this girl and her boyfriend or something...

Starts out tranquil then tortures and stabs the heart (I'm pretty sure you'll like it you masochist!)

[link]

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 4 days ago

Ah, yeah, you mentioned that band before. I think I heard one tune, but I haven't checked things out yet.

Was listening to another band, Vinterriket ("Winter Realm"), yesterday which is more ambient in nature. Sort of to the point that you fall asleep. You'll probably think it's boring, I say it's more hypnotising: [link]

// crae_work / 509 weeks and 4 days ago

Yeah I remembered after I posted that Gino told me to show you that one time.

Anyways that Vinterriket sounds: Lonely, Desolate, Sad, Despair! (made my heart feel heavy)

How in the world could you like that? the stuff you listen to messes w/ my heart (where I don't like pain) you're a masochist! hehe

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 3 days ago

The sun is shining and here I am, listening to soundscapes from cold and barren, remote mountains or something. We had a discussion at work as to why I'm always laughing and never stress or get mad. I suspect it's because I like angry and sad music and dislike happy tunes.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Vinterriket - Im Dunkel des Höhenjuges [Gebirgshöhenstille, 02]

// craeonics / 509 weeks and 3 days ago

I thought you were off on Fridays? Which is normally the day I dread cuz I have to go into Los Angeles to show my face (but Samuel had a flare up w/ this asthma so not today)

Funny cuz I don't even picture you as the laughing type! hehe

I picture you as dark and dramatic and quiet you prob picture me as loud and talkative and happy and I'm actually dark dramatic and quiet. hehe!

oh well me is currently listening to birds again.

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 3 days ago

I have classes on tuesday morning, so I have to compensate for that. Meaning that I sometimes work on friday mornings as well. Bye bye sleep.

And I can brood at work, but that wouldn't be too good for the atmosphere there. Besides, I don't brood anyway.

In other news, I got two kitties.

// craeonics / 509 weeks and 2 days ago

New kitties? or did your parents give you theirs? obviously a better choice than a dog seeing that you live upstairs w/ a dog you'd be running up and down all day.

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 2 days ago

I showed you my parrot (who thinks he's human) he's my alarm clock.

/me goes run downstairs to shut him up before my neighbors kill me.

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 2 days ago

I went to the pet shelter and got me two cats of my own. A red tomcat and a red/brown/white pussycat. And that last one sticks to me like glue, so now the entire house is covered in white hairs.

// crae_work / 509 weeks and 1 day ago

hehe sooo cute dutchy...

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 20 hours ago

I would prefer a dog, but dogs need company. And since I work all day, (s)he would have to be alone half the day. So that's not ideal.

That's also why I have two cats and not just one.

// crae_work / 509 weeks and 19 hours ago

I figured that much out, plus they're much easier to care for as well.

Dutchy I had to get rid of my bunny =( you cannot imagine how much work a bunny is. (they pee like a horse and smell worse than one) my manager and his wife also "had" a bunny so when I moved over here I thought this was ideal (cuz he said I could have as many pets as I want) but they were trying to pawn their bunny off on me too! hehe

Anyways he told me about this farm he was checking into as a home for their bunny and I went down there and checked things out and it was the perfect place for him he had hay all over and the run of the place and could be free instead of in a cage cooking all day in this heat we have over here in Cali

Thennnn of course I told you I had a bird and during a heat wave I put the fan on and when I was moving things around in the kitchen and cleaning she came to fly to me and got startled by the fan and flew into it and died I cried like a baby and my boys were upset at me soooo nowwww I have this totally loud and demanding Parrot OMG dutchy he's so weird but I'm attached to him now. He's bigger than the other bird I had so he's louder messier but worth the work and clean up...

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 18 hours ago

What in the world! I'm writting books now? (sorry bout that)

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 18 hours ago

Possessed by froggles?

I'm highly allergic to rabbits. Not so much the animals themselves, but the straw in their cages. I can't enter a stable either, because the atmosphere nearly knocks me out.

Anyway, dogs are actually easier to maintain than cats. With cats you have to clean their litter box, while dogs do things outside. I should theoretically clean that up as well, but that's ridiculous and I've never bothered with it, even when I had a dog.

// crae_work / 509 weeks and 17 hours ago

hehe that's nasty! yeah even though I'm allowed to have a puppy over here I think I showed you a pic of that small patch of grass and tree we have by the pool? that is where I'd have to take him out and no way I'm picking that stuff up! gross atleast w/ my parrot though he makes a mess throwing his fruit and seeds all over the place and screaming at me all the time his poop don't smell! hehe

What surprises me is that the cat hair does not mess w/ your asthma my kids are allergic to cut grass and cat hairs so I can't even take them over to my Mom's house cuz she has two cats and everytime I try to take them over to her house they have troubles w/ their asthma that night w/o fail.

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 16 hours ago

Someday though I want to get a German Sheppard (don't ask me why I don't even know but I want one from a small puppy)

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 16 hours ago

I'm allergic to hair in general and I've got plenty of that myself, so them cats and dogs ain't got nothing on me. Fortunately there's this thing called "medication" to suppress things.

// craeonics / 509 weeks and 13 hours ago

One being called "Singulair" in particular and two others QVAR and ProAir (I should have been nurse not a Data Analyst.

// Doreen / 509 weeks and 12 hours ago

Doctors over here don't prescribe brands anymore, but rather the medicine itself. It's then up to the drug store to decide what brand you get.

// crae_work / 508 weeks and 6 days ago

Really? That might not be to your benefit cuz the Generic versions don't seem to work the same (some do but "most" don't) and the drug store should not have the right to choose whether you get the real version of the medicine vs a synthetic clone.

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 6 days ago

I pay a $10 co-payment for visits and meds that's about it and last year it was $5 and I thought that was alot! untilll Sammy recently had a pretty bad asthma attack from his allergies and we ended up at the hospital the Doc prescribed a full strength med that was non generic (vs the generic brand he was using at another time) It cost $308 dollars and was non covered by my work insurance I almost fainted and told the pharmacy no way I have right now so he called the Doctor and he made some kind of exception I have no idea how that even happened cept I Thanked God of course and I only had to pay $20 and Sammy's been fine since he's been on "this non generic version"

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe I'm writting books again!

/me goes tie my fingers up...

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 6 days ago

Oh, I pay a lot more for my stuff. Fortunately, insurance covers it fully and unfortunately, thanks to the morons in charge in this country, we now have a no-claim system, meaning that I loose out on a couple of hundred bucks each year.

Anyway, the big idea behind doctors not prescribing brands is to prevent sponsorship and such. In the end, I still get the same stuff I always use.

// craeonics / 508 weeks and 6 days ago

Well that's good that you seem to be able to count on things over there cuz things over here keep changing w/ the wind each year my work insurance seems to pick and choose what it will and will not cover depending on their mood and I guess I should expect my co-payment to keep rising each year as well (when in the recent past I never paid a penny for anything) cuz my work insurance paid 100% for everything and there was no such thing as Generic everything through my insurance was name brand (It's changed over the past 4 years now pretty drastically)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 6 days ago

What are you doing here? get to work!

/me goes count some sheep...

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 6 days ago

I've got to post here, otherwise you're just talking to yourself all day.

// crae_work / 508 weeks and 6 days ago

That's not a problem cuz I have me, myself and I to talk to. But I'd rather talk to crae_work and craeonics.

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

Ack, DC Talk on the radio!

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: DC Talk - Jesus Freak

// crae_work / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

Hey my spell is working on you!

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

Dutchy I'm going to have to find me some tunes today cuz I'm begining to understand bird talk between these birds that keep nesting outside my window and my demanding parrot or I'll be talking bird by next week!

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

Seeeee what you did (I forgot how good their CD was)

DC Talk - Red Letters

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

You know what's strange dutchy these birds that are driving us crazy that nested on both sides of the condo upstairs under the wooden frame and on the other side by my kids bedroom window when I went outside to see it the nest is right next to a "wasp" nest? How strange is that? that birds would nest right by a wasp nest? After they finish their business again I'm going to have the landlord go knock them down cuz even my Parrot is not sure what language to speak cuz we hear these birds screaming all day! hehe

Anyways I can't be hypnotised by DC Talk today me needs Banging Base to get through this day (lots of work)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

Uh Ohhh excellente Booty tune! (worth posting)

DJ Laz ft Pitbull, Flo Rida and Lil Jon - Move Shake and Drop

Mmmm mmm mmmmm!!!

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

One more Gold Nugget! (worth posting)

Fedde Le Grand - Put your hands up for Detroit (dj nasty remixxx)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

A wasp's nest next to a bird's nest sound like a fast food thing for the birds.

If that's the same "Put your hands up for Detroit" song I know, it's dreadful.

Did I mention that Falkenbach is awesome?

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Falkenbach - The Heathenish Foray [...Magni Blandinn ok Megintiri..., 04]

// craeonics / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

Hmm me goes see if I can find your Falkenbach (which I'm sure will be hard cuz I usually can't find your stuff easily)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

Found it! (and a few more Falkenbach tunes) going to listen to them now but I just clicked on the Heathenish Foray one and though you always take my ears to foreign lands and my ears get confused I kinda like this one (surprisingly)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

I have one of his albums. It's a bit heavy on the synths, but quite good. There's some of his stuff on YouTube.

// crae_work / 508 weeks and 5 days ago

A few of the downloads that immediately jumped me broke off but I did get to hear a few of them I may go back and try again today and sail upon that viking ship today...

Course they like the rest of the world has a tacky myspace page as well:

[link]

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

Ofcourse, "Tacky" and "MySpace" are best friends after all.

// crae_work / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe I don't really know anyone cept my Mom and Stepfather that don't have one? (and by this time next year they may have one too!) I hate myspace and until I die I won't take that mark of that beast either...

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

Do you have one dutchy? hehe! The prob is when someone wants me to go check something out unless "you" have one you cannot view certain things and it pisses everyone off cuz I don't have one. (but I just don't want one and have no desire for one)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

/me goes download "Falkenbach - The Ardent Awaited" tune that one sounds nice (however I seriously need my Booty tunes to focus when I work) this Ardent Awaited one is going to drift me off onto some distant ocean (but it sounds? I don't know?) hehe

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

If I were fourteen and were tacky, I might have a MySpace account. but no, real people have their own domain.

// crae_work / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

I don't know about that dutchy there's alot of adults and even ppl that have a business they quickly toss up a myspace. anyways more important things to discuss here w/ you...

There are two diff version of this one:

Falkenbach - Heathen Foray (starts out w/ ocean waves crashing and slightly softer.

Falkenbach - Heathenish Foray (starts out w/ wind and slightly harder.

(both good but I think I like the first better) currently listening to:

Falkenbach - As Long As Winds Will Blow

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

One more thing though (besides my dislike of that myspace thing) is that girl from Lacuna Coil has her own myspace while she rants about being pure Italian cuz she lives over in Italy so she considers herself to be pure and not a synthetic one that lives outside of Italy somehow I now see her as synthetic that she rides off a myspace page...

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

Here it is:

[link]

Gino owns my Lacuna Coil CD's and he called me into his room one day to show me her myspace and I skimmed something of her ranting about her proudness of being an "Real Italian" not an artificial one that calls themself an Italian when they were not born in Italy and don't live in Italy which could be true but I thought she's sounds like a "generic person" to say something like that. (however I still like her CD's)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

You mean she thinks the same as me? If you're not born nor are living in Italy, you're not Italian. Not that I can find her words on it (that page is terrible).

// craeonics / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

terrible = tacky (come on she's got enough money to put something decent up)

And if I were born and living on Mars right now but still my biological Mother and Father are both Full Blooded Italian than I still would be an Italian not a Martian!

Anyways here we go cuz my Boss is nagging me now...

The Ardent Awaited Land - Alilllll too slow for my taste but still sounds nice.

The Heathen Foray - My Fav

The Heathenish Foray - Second Fav

As Long as Winds Will Blow - Third Fav

Romand Land - I bet this is your Fav

Of Forest Unknown - I'm thinking possibly your second Fav. hehe!

/me goes toss me on some Booty tunes and get in fast gear.

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

Actually scratch that my Fav is def "As Long As the Wind Will Blow"

*grumbles* thank you very much dutchy I'm getting nothing done today! argh!

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

Mission accomplished!

// craeonics / 508 weeks and 4 days ago

You meanie!!!

Dutchy this stupid fan is "stuck" on this machine over here do you know of a way to shut it off (sounds like it's going to blow up)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 3 days ago

I mean other than having to have the guys come open up the box is there a setting to calm it down? I've not even begun opening up enough apps for it to be acting like this.

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 3 days ago

There is no software solution, the only option is to open the case and investigate. Maybe something is overheating or perhaps it's just dusty and in need of cleaning.

// craeonics / 508 weeks and 3 days ago

This is not something I need to worry about is it? If this stupid fan just blows up will I have time to get someone to fix things after the fact? The sound is pretty unbearable and hard to work on it sounds scary! But I don't have the time to worry about it cuz I've got deadlines today.

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 3 days ago

The problem is this particular machine is not County property though it resides here in this Hospital so I'm not sure which guys to hunt down "this time" (So hopefully I have time and this thing don't drop dead or something)

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 3 days ago

Modern machines will shut down automatically if they overheat. But I'd still say you should get the sysop to investigate. He or she will probably have a fit, but what the hell.

// craeonics / 508 weeks and 2 days ago

I got a hold of some guys from the outside IT Dept that should be responsible to handle that particular machine (when they can get down to Los Angeles is the issue) since they're not stationed in the hospital where I work. anyways dutchy I'm so tired of machines breaking down, not too long ago I had my own computer issues on the machine I work on from home and now I've got this stupid thing to deal w/ over there! the nurses over there say they hear the thing going nuts everytime I make my connections and then it calms down when I log back off and disconnect. When I get there and sit down and touch the mouse before I even launch the programs it sound like it's going to blow up so I'm guessing the fan is defective or something it drove me nuts all day yesterday and my concern is when it blows out the machine will burn out shortly after that.

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 2 days ago

If you're right and the machine shuts down before overheating that is good but that will not solve my concern about my job since I need "that" machine to connect to from this machine to work.

Stupid machines what I need is a new line of work...

// Doreen / 508 weeks and 2 days ago

Back to baking hamburgers it is, then.

Meanwhile my cat should find a hobby that does not involve sitting in front of the screen, because I can't do shit this way. Not that I am that productive anyway.

// craeonics / 508 weeks and 1 day ago

hehe obviously you chose the right cat!

Meanwhile, /me hears a new version of Utah Saints excellent "Something Good", which isn't half bad. But I missed the artist.

// craeonics / 508 weeks and 10 hours ago

True but it's not the same as bugging you from my desktop machine...

/me is listening once againnnn to birds all around me (you would not believe how loud they are in the morning)

// Doreen / 507 weeks and 6 days ago

Yes I completely wear out my War tunes but so what it's better than these birds currently listening tooo:

War - Don't Let No One Nooo One Get you Down

cuz if they doooo if they dooooo I'll be aroundddd

Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!

// Doreen / 507 weeks and 6 days ago

"War", the completely unknown band on these shores.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Snoop Dogg - Sensual Seduction

// craeonics / 507 weeks and 5 days ago

Most likely because we listen to different things on this side of the globe.

Utah Saints' "Something Good", which I mentioned before, dates back to times when panda was still hip (and the word "hip" wasn't reserved for old timers) and I almost reached my current age. Turns out the new version I heard is actually their own remix and I actually like it better than the original. It's been cut back to the basics: the hook (a Kate Bush sample) and the beat.

1992 original: [link]

2008 remix: [link]

It's so good I was actually dancing through the house on it, which totally freaked out the cats.

// craeonics / 507 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe!!! youuuu dancing through the house?

/me goes check this out...

// Doreen / 507 weeks and 5 days ago

I don't think they play that over here? Or atleast it got past me? But I agree w/ you I like the second one alot better.

Here's some War for you dutchy, pretty much anyone that has ever ran the streets of Los Angeles knows who War is over here.

These are my favorite ones (but this is one group I almost like all their tunes)

/me buys a ticket and flies over

I think WAR predates me by about a decade, but I seriously have never heard of them. The only place I could possibly encounter that would be in some 70's US police flick or something.

YouTube is a gold mine. I was supposed to restructure some Tek code (no, seriously), but ran into all kinds of stuff I listened to years ago, but could never find, and got totally distracted.

// craeonics / 507 weeks and 5 days ago

If life brings you to Los Angeles "you're mine" I'd have to show you alot of things you've never seen before.

Anyways, I know I'm really liking YouTube too cuz you can find "anything" even good tutorials for anything dutchy! I find myself running to it alot when I search almost as much as google.

// Doreen / 507 weeks and 5 days ago

Tribal House - DJ John Anthony - Downreach Radio (DI 004) March 2008

// Doreen / 504 weeks and 18 hours ago

Argh!!!!! Now I remember why I always stop going there the stupid stream always drops dead on meeeee! Just when it was getting good!!!!

/me goes fight to get it back, dutchy you have to check out the Tribal House Excelente!

// Doreen / 504 weeks and 18 hours ago

/me takes notes

I've got some particular colleagues here. One can't stand fast and loud music (exit house), one can't stand guitars (exit metal) and a third gets bored after five minutes, unless there are DJ's talking (hopeless).

// crae_work / 504 weeks and 18 hours ago

/me says a quick prayer for you! I had to restart my stupid computer to get the stream working again, do you have issues keeping the stream working at DI or is that every single thing I touch drops dead on me? I'm going to stay parked on this Tribal House stream today (that issss as long as the stream will allow me to)

Dj Tili - New Year's Kicking Eve (2008)

// Doreen / 504 weeks and 17 hours ago

Lemme see how to describe this? "Killerrrrr Tribal Drums" a small dash of house type sounds mixed in w/ deep black male voodoo vocals jumping in saying weird stuff out of nowhere to send chills up and down your spine.

Ummm pretty tasty...

// Doreen / 504 weeks and 17 hours ago

Only prob is that it's difficult to work to cuz I find myself drifting off God knows where? and I keep getting lost in this excel spread sheet when I suddenly wake up (I've got like only two patients data entered so far?) hehe

// Doreen / 504 weeks and 17 hours ago

I'll give it a spin at work tomorrow. I'll probably get yelled at and have to change the channel in mere minutes, but what the hell.

Streams rarely give me trouble. Sometimes when the line is clogged, they keep buffering. I then usually change channels and all is well again.

// craeonics / 504 weeks and 17 hours ago

Seems when mine begins to buffer and stop I can't get anyother stream to load until I restart the computer and go back and load the player again...

At any rate this one is decent however this one on now I'm thinking they stuck it in the wrong category cuz it ain't sounding tribal some white dude saying music music music (oh boy give me my tribal guy back!)

// Doreen / 504 weeks and 16 hours ago

Actually could be the player? you have a few options and I don't currently have winamp so I'm playing the stream via WMP.

// Doreen / 504 weeks and 16 hours ago

Oh boy they've strayed wayyyy off the Tribal vibe me goes jump back on my booty tunes I guess... *sigh*

// Doreen / 504 weeks and 15 hours ago

Hmm, not particularly interesting. Just the same boring drum going on and on and on for hours. I stream with WinAmp, by the way.

// crae_work / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

The first few songs they played were pretty good and "seemed" exactly like what the title of the stream was "Tribal House" but some how they strayed off course into the typical "lets throw whatever sounds together and call it whatever we want not what it is" which was rediculous. (Guess if I want to hear Tribal I need to take a trip to Africa or something)

/me is listening to the typical sounds of morning the trash truck making his around the neighborhood and crows and birds.

Have a good day dutchy (I think later today I'm going to go find a few of my CD's)

I mean good night dutchy, my coffee is slow acting this morning. hehe

hehe don't laugh but "I" actually liked this one you posted. Thing keeps playing in my head.

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

I think you've had too much sun. But yeah, it sticks. Especially the yoiking (chanting).

What you should be checking out, is De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig's latest. It's awesome: [link]

// craeonics / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

/me goes check it out...

Currently listening to a mommy bird feeding her baby birds (right outside my window againnnn) they sound cute but get annoying after awhile.

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe! dutchy I don't even know what to think about that? hehe! looks and sounds so funny to me? kinda cute, clean an innocent looking dutch rappers? They even tossed a windmill in there! (but I like it!)

/me goes peek at that again...

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

Completely blows my mind. hehe

Rappers over here are actually Thug Murderers and Rapist in disguise...

I have no clue what those guys in that vid are saying but it sounds good (I love your lingo dutchy)

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

/me goes back to working on this spread sheet and listening to birdies outside my window...

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm currently hooked on this tune over here right now (but they are wearing it out on all the radio stations)

[link]

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

What the hell: "This video is not available in your country."

I've never seen that message before. What's that all about?

Anyway, as usual with De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, the lyrics are mostly gibberish. Or should I say, deep, deep insider jargon. Topics are usually like that of oldskool rappers ("I'm so cool" and what not) and the black guy always goes on about his (hypothetical) sex life.

// craeonics / 503 weeks and 6 days ago

How strange you can't access that vid from there? I think that happened to me once when I clicked on one of your links too dutchy...

Anddd I see the rappers can't sing w/o grabbing themselves on that side of the globe as well?

Kutless - Your Touch (sounds alittle vanilla today but it will do)

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 5 days ago

Got sleepy so jumped on my CD:

Summoning - Our Foes Shall Fall

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 5 days ago

/me goes summon my summoning CD once again and sooth my nerves today...

Summoning - Ashen Cold

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 4 days ago

Falkenbach - As Long As Winds Will Blow

(nothing but battles and riding the ocean for me today)

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 4 days ago

I wassss gonna listen to my Bathory CD but a certain lillll boy around here hid it from me...

okay enough talking to myself for a while before I bore myself to death.

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 4 days ago

Talking to yourself is a sure sign of schitzophrenia.

Hmm, I have this distinct feeling I said something similar earlier.

// crae_work / 503 weeks and 4 days ago

oh shut up I just like talking to "you" silly (I'm not even a talker in real life)

Stupid Doctors over here dutchy, I took your lil cyber nephew (Sammy) to the Doctors over a week ago cuz he's so sensitive that every little thing seems to trigger his asthma but something sounded wrong so I took him to the Doctors and the Doctor listened w/ his scope said yup asthma flair up and tossed me some liquid Steroids for a 5 day course (which is not good meds for a kid when it's over and over again)

He finished the Steroids and I had to take him back cuz to me his cough sounded weird I kept telling the Doctor his cough sounds different to me? The Doctor said no it's just his asthma, so I demanded they check him better and they ran an X-ray sure enough he's had Pneumonia! what was strange is he had no fever. But his cough to me sounded different even these crazy Doctors could not tell by listening to him. I'd like to shoot them!

Anways just take down the msg board if you want cuz I'll just come bore you death forever otherwise. Keep the Tek news up though but really the msg board is nothing you should drop it, all it is is me looking for you all the time...

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 3 days ago

That's probably because you, me and PK are the only ones that know it exist. I'm not taking anything down.

I'd say pneumonia is quite risky when you have sensitive/weak longs already. But I'm no doctor.

// craeonics / 503 weeks and 3 days ago

No that is exactly right, his lower right lung was and is full of fluid so thats what was causing him not to breath right when I took him the first time to get checked but these Doctors over here are Steroid crazy they don't diagnose what is causing the asthma they just hear a wheeze and toss steroids everytime he should have been on antibiotics a long time ago when I told them he sounded different the last time. (pneumonia in severe asthmatics could be fatal)

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 3 days ago

It seems those doctors where a bit too laid back and too quick to diagnose things. Asthma doesn't just flare up just like that, they should always look for a reason.

// craeonics / 503 weeks and 1 day ago

where = were, ofcourse. Next version of Tek is going to have an edit function.

// craeonics / 503 weeks and 1 day ago

No kidding I'm no Doctor either but common sense and good ears is all you need, they're the ppl w/ all the so called education and even a scope in their hands to help them listen.

Anyways dutchy he goes back Tuesday for another Chest X-ray they said if he did not respond to all the meds they gave him they're going to admit him into the hospital but "I know" he is doing "much" better, (he took a turn last night I can tell) they gave him several injections of Antibiotics and Steroids and oral meds and I've been giving him around the clock breathing treatments on a machine I have here at home.

Gino thank God seems to be outgrowing his asthma but Sammy is the one having a hard time now.

/me is listening to Sponge Bob. hehe =)

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 1 day ago

I can only suggest that you stay on it and keep kicking those doctors. Geez, what a lazy bunch.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Vinterriket - Tannenmeer [Der Letzte Winter (Der Ewigkeit entgegen), 02]

// craeonics / 503 weeks and 13 hours ago

I am dutchy and thanks for being my soft pillow to cry on. He's doing much better and he gets the X-ray tomorrow so I'll know for sures.

Enough of this, now me goes see what craziness you're listening to and drown out these birds all around me...

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 11 hours ago

Oh boy I feel sorry for your cats. hehe!

/me goes grab a sweater (that guy would be great for bg sounds for Horror flicks)

This one right? [link]

You're a madman!!!!!

// Doreen / 503 weeks and 10 hours ago

Yep, that's the one. I can listen to it all day.

The man's output is ridiculous though. Since all songs sound the same, he seems to spit out a new record every month.

// craeonics / 502 weeks and 6 days ago

You're insane! hehe

/me goes find some booty tunes and get busy...

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 6 days ago

They just ain't making booty tunes like they used to so I had to go pull out a good one from a dusty folder:

Wreckx N Effect - Rump Shakerrr

Mmmm mmm mmmmm!!!

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 6 days ago

Dutchy you remember that guy at skinz.org esperi? The one that posted like a billion taglines? I don't know if any of his taglines made any sense to you but when I read them I was confused for the rest of the day. Wellll check this out I think this guy is his brother or something.

Todays upload: [link]

some others from his gallery...

[link]

[link]

[link]

What in the world!? He has good talent but the image itself is so disturbing I'm all confused all day after I spot this guys uploads. Reminds me of that other guy on skinz.org w/ his crazy taglines that never made sense.

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 6 days ago

It's doubtful that s/he has any relation to eSperii. I don't think the guy ever produced anything else than tag lines.

// crae_work / 502 weeks and 6 days ago

Well they have "similiar" things in common such as their names espira/eSperii and a strange way of thinking and expression?

Alright Mr. Serious maybe not but I can't help but think of that other guy when I see this one.

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 5 days ago

Lil Wayne - Lollipop bla bla bla same ole re-runs...

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 4 days ago

/me is going to kick people

Some idiot is applying for al kinds of things but is too thick to remember his phone number, which results in me getting called alllll the time because he uses mine. Grrr...

// craeonics / 502 weeks and 4 days ago

Orrrr he's using a bogus credit w/ "your name" on it? I let my answering service handle the nonsense (which is 100% of the time)

Back to listening to these birds, dutchy I keep thinking I need to have my manager knock their nest down when the baby birds fly away but I forget after it gets quiet again and then I hear a new litter of baby birds again! I swear either this momma bird is sexing it up everyday (or maybe different birds are using the nest?) They feed the babies around the clock so all I hear is birds birds birds!

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 4 days ago

Well, that's good isn't it? Beats hearing your neighbours/kids/traffic all day.

// crae_work / 502 weeks and 4 days ago

Gets annoying after a while actually (but I think I'd rather hear the baby birds then the opera I'm going to be listening to today)

Have a g'night you invisible dutchman...

// Dor_work / 502 weeks and 3 days ago

The Invisible Dutchman is digging for gold on YouTube.

Somewhere between about 1990 and 2000 I spent a lot of time listening to pirate radio stations, because they played music you didn't hear elsewhere. Around the end of the decade all pirate stations in this area were shutdown once and for all.

Now there was this one song I really liked, but I never knew the name, nor the artist. The only thing I knew was that it was released on the label Mokum Records. So right now I'm scouring YouTube for tracks on that label.

This isn't it, but it's certainly nice: [link]

// craeonics / 502 weeks and 3 days ago

Certainly issss... (and a good change from the norm) Why did they shut them down? I need to go hunting over the weekend for something different cuz it's rerun city over on this end same ole same ole on the radio and vid channels.

Anyways it's pretty hard not to be able to find anything on YouTube that your hunting for so hopefully you found it.

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 3 days ago

They shut them down because you have to pay to use a frequency and pirates don't do that. The official reason ofcourse was that they caused interference/disturbances with other (legal) stations. Trouble is, those legal stations are all bloody boring.

And unfortunately, I couldn't find the track I was looking for. I went through at least fifty.

// craeonics / 502 weeks and 2 days ago

Seems they are trying to butt into all the good stuff on the internet that we used to enjoy for free, some nut I seen on TV was trying to pass something about putting a tax fee for itune music d/l's now? And was looking for clarificaton on what is considered a "tangible item" I think that was the word? (and not sure of the spelling of it) needless to say they said he is now needing a body guard cuz of death threats. hehe!

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 2 days ago

"They" have been meaning to implement a tax fee on software downloaded for some time now, but I don't think they've gotten anywhere yet.

Anyway, spent too much time playing GTA, umm, I mean, working on Tek. /me goes cook food

// craeonics / 502 weeks and 2 days ago

Umm welllll where is my frozen dinner? you mean you didn't cook me one!? hehe

Oh sooner or later they will get their greedy lil fingers on internet based goods that they never considered in the past. Alot more eyes are on the internet now.

Just look how internet based phone calls that you can make over seas for free put regular phone companies completely out of business. I think the same thing will happen w/ video rental stores cuz more ppl will start to use internet based video d/l rental.

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 2 days ago

Actually it is about WOW time for meeee!

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 2 days ago

Check it outttt! Lvl 64 Warlock (me on my mount)[link]

me w/ my body guard (alrighttt my Felguard)

[link]

My brother is lvl 70 and Gino is lvl 70, I'm the slow poke trying to lvl up but I don't have as much time as they do so I'm trailing behind.

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 2 days ago

Okay it's picture day Gino wants you to see his char too...

[link]

[link]

He just got his lvl 70 mount (which makes mines look pitiful now) plus his has speeds of 120% faster of normal speed. He's a Holy Paladin.

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 2 days ago

How can a horse that massive be so fast, o Elven Ones? Never played World of WarCraft (and not going to either, I'm short on time already), but I've seen horses in several games and they work quite well. In Zelda 64 the area to run around in was quite limited, but the horse riding in Shadow of the Colossus was really epic. Conan soundtrack running in my head and all.

Anyway, every time I see World of WarCraft, I'm reminded of that Southpark episode.

// craeonics / 502 weeks and 1 day ago

By the way, does being a "Holy Paladin" (aren't paladins more or less holy already? [link] ) require you to be the good guy? That's the deal in Dungeons and Dragons. Never playes that game either, but I read the character building book.

// craeonics / 502 weeks and 1 day ago

Not sure of the terminology of it but I'm reading your wiki link now but in the game there are diff "specs" and he chose to be a "Healer" (which is Holy) the other two are "Protection and Retribution" I think? Just like for my char I chose Demonology rather than Afliction or Destruction cuz I can play that char better when I tried Afliction (like everyone was pushing me to I died every second) but playing Demonology I have several minions/pets to tank w/ me. So I seem to do twice the damage w/ my spells.

Gino kicks butt as a Healer though he tried the other specs too. We get into groups and go hit dungeons and do instances and no matter what lvl madness is down there he keeps us all alive. His guild begs him around the clock to go do raids but he prefers when we go hit dungeons. hehe! (lots of fun)

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 1 day ago

Btw Gino said tell that crae guy to play WOW but I already told him there was no way you would cuz you are too cheap and lazy and you play micky mouse games. hehe!

/me runs...

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 1 day ago

Argh! dutchy that stuff is like reading a book (that link you dropped) I don't know about the history of Palidins you history guy...

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 1 day ago

Palidin = Paladin *sigh*

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 1 day ago

hehehehehe!!!!! OMG dutchy me and Gino checked out YouTube for that Southpark clip cuz I did not know what you were talking about (tons of them not sure which one specifically you're talking about) but funnyyy! (I still hear him laughing in his room)

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 1 day ago

Demonology means summoning monsters to fight for you, right? Healers are useful in most games, but unfortunately they tend to be somewhat weak.

I can't remember what episode it was, but there's a Southpark episode where they go play World of WarCraft (and get totally addicted).

// crae_work / 502 weeks and 1 day ago

Yes the char I chose gets to summon all kinds of diff minions that fight along side me while you get to cast damage over time spells. Alot of fun but a very difficult char to play (not a popular one since warlocks are the weakest)

And yes Gino's char is most useful but not as weak as the warlocks cuz he has spells of protection so he bubbles himself when attacked and takes down aliance and monsters etc. (Cool char I like when he plays he has alot of skill)

I think it's all about how the "individual" plays his/her character that's about it...

Anyways it's very addicting as I told you my brother got us into this he's "completely obsessed" w/ it, I go through periods where I enjoy playing it "alot" and then times where I don't have time and need to break off from it for weeks or even months so he gets pissed off at me. But it's fun.

The Southpark clips me and Gino checked out yesterday where totally hilarious dutchy! (not sure if they were any of the ones you were talking about) funny after I seen them I thought how disgusting! Some were just completely gross and grossed me out. hehe

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 20 hours ago

Dutchy I "think" there is a new GTA out over here on this end. Do you guys have it over there, not sure what it was that I spotted somewhere but I thought there was a new GTA either out or coming out over here...

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 20 hours ago

Actually here it is, looks like "tomorrow" is the release date. (atleast on this side)

[link]

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 20 hours ago

If I were to play World of WarCraft, I'd probably do something which involved swords. In every RPG I play, I rarely use magic.

And yes, GTA IV should be out tomorrow. My cousin works in an electronics store and he said they received there shipment last week, but he couldn't swipe one yet because of the massive fines they receive if it leaks out early.

// crae_work / 502 weeks and 19 hours ago

Most the chars have several diff types of weapons to choose from even though mines is a warlock (and I mainly like to use Staves)I've used one handed swords before but most the other chars use two handed swords some weapons are insane as you move up lvls but I seriously doubt I will ever get to 70 like Gino and my brother I don't have as much time (or patience) it's a miracle I hit 64! and each level gets harder. I think next month they are bumping it up to lvl 80 but I don't know for sures...

And yeah family or no family they don't mess around when things get leaked early and you don't want to cost a family member his/her job. (as tempting as it is to beg them) hehe

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 17 hours ago

Dutchy I have to show you something totally cool! but I need to video it cuz when I ss it it comes out black so I lose the bg. If I can remember I'll try to figure it out this weekend my boss is on me for things today so I can't mess around w/ it. Yes as much as you're not interested I'm still gonna show you! hehe!

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 17 hours ago

And noooo it's not game related so relaxxx! It's something skinning related...

// Doreen / 502 weeks and 17 hours ago

There have to be tools for capturing video. The reason it's all black is probably because of hardware acceleration.

// crae_work / 501 weeks and 6 days ago

I know and I had an app in past for desktop avi capture but this of course is not on my desktop. And don't go having fits cuz now you know it's on my phone even you will think this is a cool app. (or maybe not Mr. Dark and Dramatic) I'm going to try to show you it anyways, I'll try to get the vid capture one way or another when time permits.

Back on topic (for the moment)

I rec'd a link to d/l Coldplay's new tune "Violet Hill" in my mailbox this morning and got excited and quickly grabbed the d/l to check it out "Total disappointment" They'll never top "Clocks"

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 6 days ago

Coldplay - Clocks (Always a good vibe) guess now I'm going to float around on this today.

/me goes get into gear chase my kids out of bed and get ready for my work day...

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 6 days ago

Alright got my kids taken care of and dropped off and before I get crazy w/ my day here you go...

The issue w/ trying out new things on machines is I tend to run off into new directions and I don't have time to try to learn how to edit, reformat and become a movie producer now! I could not find a way to rec vid from my actual phone so you can't even see how clear and cool this reallyyy looks on my phone insteaddddd I had to vid rec it from my old cam which is a cam not really a vid recorder so it only does sucky little 5 sec shots and as you can see they are as blurry as can be but will have to do.

Tell me if you can view these okay if not I will try to become a movie producer tonight or this weekend.

My set up on my phone right now:

[link]

A fire theme but I don't like it Gino likes it:

[link]

Some dev released an Alpha on this app seems alot of ppl are having a hard time running it, but I got lucky and I even figured out a way to make my icons look transparent whereas before on my prior static set up like this I had to paint my icons on my wall and then use blank pngs as launchers. At any rate this will be on my phone for atleast a month. hehe

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 6 days ago

Coooool! Moving backdrops. Nice, very nice.

// craeonics / 501 weeks and 6 days ago

Isn't it cool! (hopefully your not saying cool but wearing a very sarcastic face) hehe

I think it is though just goes to show how easy it is for these developers to make all kinds of crazy apps for the iphone and nothing has even gotten official yet on this thing. I think it will be very exciting to see this unfold and all the new skinnable apps...

All I'm waiting for is a skinnable calendar that I can attach icons to appts I'm a visual person and can't stand having to read appts I used to like glancing at my PPC Calendar and seeing visual cues of upcoming things.

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 6 days ago

You should be able to attach photos of the people you're meeting with to the appointment. That would be a really powerful means of communication.

// craeonics / 501 weeks and 4 days ago

You can already do that feature in the Contacts/Phone program but "not" attach images/icons to appts in the "Calendar" which is what I'm talking about so when you glance at your Calendar you don't have to scroll and read text to see what your appts are but rather just glance at the Calendar and "visually quickly see" the images and you know what's coming up. They'll make one I'm sure of it. They had tons of them for pocket pcs.

Dutchy I sent you an email regarding Tek hosting a file for d/l but I'm not sure if since you moved you changed your mail address so let me know if you can please. I don't want to post anything for downloading unless I get permission.

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe oh boy sorry dutchy I see what you mean now and yeah you can actually assign the contacts photo as well to the appt but once again "not" on the iphone which is what I mean (I only had that ability on ppc's) the iphone is very limited atm but that should be changing soon.

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 4 days ago

I am going to be in sooooo much hot water tomorrow it won't be funny...

I've been on a playing around kick w/ skinning again, I want to release a theme that might help this lil dev out.

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 4 days ago

/me purges spambox (how the hell did you end up in there?)

// craeonics / 501 weeks and 3 days ago

cuz you probably intentionally put me there? hehe

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 3 days ago

I do not know who in the world this guy is but I plan on finding out tonight when I go and search and grab more of his stuff cuz this has got to be the most beautiful worhip tune I ever heard.

Chris Tomlin - How great is our God

/me goes let my heart worship whilst I work today...

// Dor_worship / 501 weeks and 18 hours ago

/me makes the board "public" to test your faith

// craeonics / 501 weeks and 15 hours ago

Uh ohhh! well anyone that seen my last post that guy only seems to have one other good tune called "indescribable" the rest are horrible...

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 13 hours ago

You better clean this board off dutchy! I don't want ppl knowing all my life stories going on! (you're the only one that gets that *cough* privledge *cough*)

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 13 hours ago

It was never hidden in the first place, only obscured by not really linking to it. Pekomon found out, did he not?

// craeonics / 501 weeks and 12 hours ago

He did the same thing I did grabbed the link and stashed it when you posted it that (1) time or else it was basically hidden from the world and you'd been over here talking to yourself.

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 12 hours ago

So is this where you two are postin?

Thought I'd hang around a bit.

Hope 3 ain't a crowd around here.

So what have you 2 been up to lately?

I see Doreen, you've been playin WOW.

Here's soumthin interesting..So have I.

I can only hope yer on my server, but prolly not

Been playin for a year and a half myself.

2 70's with epic mounts and a few lower lvls too.

Would be hot stuff if I've grouped with ya at sumtime, wouldn't it

Be back in a couple.

// Roach / 501 weeks and 9 hours ago

Yup this is where we post and nooo 3 is not a crowd at all it just means more chit chat. As for me nothing much just work, kids and play, play = skinning my iphone or WOW (me no party girl) I was on lightbringer before but then I stopped playing for a while due to work and then my brother talked me into playing again so I created another Warlock but on Bloodscalp cuz he made me I liked Lightbringer better but he wanted me on a PVP server so now I not only have to fight off monsters and dragons now I get my a** kicked from behind when I'm not looking from other players!!!

I hardly get to play though cuz I'm pretty wiped out from work and kids but when I do log on it's marathon time usually we (we = my brother who moved to Nevada and my kids) don't get back off until 5:30 in the morning or when we hear birds outside! Last time you posted in our soapbox you mentioned you were into some 3D/gaming? What was that? I can't recall what exactly.

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 9 hours ago

It was prolly WOW that I was talkin bout. Was thinkin of doin an add on or 2 for it, but never get the time.

Kinda had sumwhat of a skinning feel to it really. The scripting isn't too hard either.

I play often, pretty much every day. Couple hrs here, couple there. Kinda fun actually. I'm on a PVP server too, so I know what ya mean about the attacked from behind thing.

Aggamaggan server for all the toons. Low pop server, so groups are hard to get together sumtimes.

Anyways, have a 70 Warrior and a 70 Rogue. They smoke those allies.

Hope you aint one of them...hehe

HORDE FTW

// Roach / 501 weeks and 9 hours ago

hehe HORDE FTW!!!

My brother called me about 1/2 hour ago screaming at me sis why haven't you logged on for a few days!? I'm like should I just quit my job and play all day and night!? he gets pissed at me and I do want to play but I get so tired and can't get into it when I'm tired.

I've seen the add on's but I don't like them cuz they make your screen get all crowded w/ too much stuff going on and nonsense which quickly becomes too intrusive. Another words you put an add on on and they you're like WOW this is cool! After 1 hour you're like WOW this is rediculous and you begin taking it apart toolbar by toolbar until you just uninstall the thing! Anyways I've got two boys that I'm listening to right now saying "mom what's for dinner!"

Nice chatting w/ you Roach now you know where we're at so we better start seeing you around more not just every 3 years!

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 9 hours ago

Okey Doke.

I'll try not to be a stranger.

Nice chattin with you too hon.

By the way, what is for dinner?

I'll be right over.....lol

// Roach / 501 weeks and 5 hours ago

Dinner is over t'was steamed rice, spinach salad and Italian Chicken cutlets. (you missed out) hehe

but you can come do the dishes?

// Doreen / 501 weeks and 5 hours ago

If people actually start using this board, I may have to implement feeds per thread.

// crae_work / 500 weeks and 6 days ago

I don't know but I for one would just like a feed for the listening to thread it's the only one I see when I come looking for you...

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 6 days ago

I honestly "myself" don't expect most to even notice you added the link or that it's been revised.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 6 days ago

Dutchy were you able to troubleshoot that script issue? I'm curious if it was something w/ a server change.

Remember I told you about my mom and sister telling me I would die by something machine or electric? Last night I pulled out my new vacuum cleaner and when I pluged it in the electricity in my apt blew out we were in the dark. So I found the button thingie on the wall and pushed it and everything came back on again "but" my new vacuum is dead! hehe

Stupid rediculous! I wanted to scream! now I've got to lug this big thing back to the store for an exchange.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

I remember my mom yelling at me cuz we needed disposible vacuums and blenders and toasters when I was living w/ her! hehe!

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

The thing was probably malfunctioning already.

You have these things called "brooms". They don't require electricity, are quiet and using them is good for your health too. Not to mention that sweeping is quite zen. As is cleaning the litter box.

Haven't been able to give the script a spin on a different server yet.

// crae_work / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

zen? I do use a broom in my kitchen cuz it's tile but I would not get far on this funky nasty carpet my manager has in this place where I live trying to sweep up bird seeds out of it.

Okay about the script I have to update my file today and I'll just keep things as .rar format no more zips.

I heard this tune in my car (radio version) and went to search them out cuz I liked it, (apparently these guys are from here so you may not have heard of them though they've been around for a while it seems) Anyways I go to youtube and see this vid which completely freaked me! they have to be 100% insane. Now I'm not so sure I like the tune anymore, it was like watching some really bad horror flick! Check it out when you have time. [link]

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

Only you dutchy gets me curious enough to go read books!

[link]

(I don't know why they can't just say what it is w/o all them words)

/me goes read...

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

??? so weird. I mean all the "Titles" for it all the "Training" ppl do just to find God/Peace (whatever you want to call it) Everybody has their own way I guess...

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

Okay go ahead and laugh at me but this is the conclusion "I" have about "IT" (the problem is trying to put it into words. but here goes)

God the creator of this world (cuz if you really "really" look at the world outside of the man made garbage I mean) you see that "God" which I have to title/call it, is Perfect.

But "we" are not perfect not one single person on the face of this earth (not even Angelina Joline or whatever her name is though she looks almost perfect) hehe

So what happens is we go look and search for God in the various Religions to find it/him and because we are not perfect when we search we start to see "our" own flaws and the "Pastors" flaws and the "Churches" flaws and the "Religion's" flaws and then things get messy and nobody sees or finds "God" it/him.

Now you'll think I'm crazy but you already knew that so, so what!

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

Okay now I feel like having a deep moment (which translates into I'm gonna bore you to death) and I don't feel like doing what I'm suppose to be doing.

Man can only figure out the human body piece by piece I mean the organs like the heart, liver skin all that cool stuff ppl are amazed by what we are made up of "but" they cannot figure out the "Soul"

Man can only figure out and name things like parts of the world figure out what it's made of what's in the ocean and name and title planets and moons but they still can't figure out what's out there or how far it goes or how the world even began or will end.

When our "spirit" leaves our body then the body is nothing and it dies.

And the world is a living mass (just the same) kept alive by "spirit" not just all the things it's made up of cuz when the spirit leaves the mass will die.

So God is a spirit.

okay me goes lock herself up now. hehe!

actually I better get busy I'm so lazy today it's not even funny. Zzzzzz

/me calls the Ghostbusters

Gods are the personification of events and phenomena that at some point in time puzzled societies. Especially in older religions like Shinto, these gods or spirits are everywhere.

People fear that which they do not understand, so if they can personify it, they can at least hope to communicate with it. It is the easy way out: I don't know what's going on, it must be the gods' doing.

Zen is a form of Buddhism and Buddhism in its pure, original form is derived from Hinduism. In Hinduism all living things strive to, simply put, become one with the universe (Brahman). In order to do so, one must live a righteous life and depending on how you lived you will reincarnate as a being closer to or further away from unity. Actions in a previous life will shape the path your next life will follow (the concept of karma). Once you reach unity, you will stop reincarnating.

Now, this cycle of life and death takes a long time and Buddha came up with a way to take a shortcut and reach this highest state of existence (Nirvana). In short he teaches that:

1) All (physical) life is suffering.

2) The suffering stems from clinging to the material.

3) In order to stop the suffering (and the continuous reincarnations) one has to let go of ones material cravings.

4) The way to do this is to follow the Eightfold Path (which boils down to "do the right thing").

The core of Buddhism is to "let go".

Now Zen is a form of Buddhism where enlightenment is sought through introspection and meditation. Zen likes to throw with riddles like "what is the sound of one hand clapping?" or "if a tree falls in the forest but there is no-one there to witness this, does it make a sound?". Not-being or non-thinking is a core concept of Zen and a form of this "letting go". Hence the monotonous task of cleaning the litter box is quite Zen, because it requires zero thought effort.

Nine Inch Nails, by the way, are quite big in alternative circles world wide. Or rather, those alternative circles who think they are oh so special, but are just slightly less mainstream than "genuine" pop music. Anyway, I don't like 'em.

// crae_guru / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

I don't think I like them either after seeing that sick flick they call a video...

Anyways, crae_guru what do you believe?

I've "always felt" there is a God/creator but the closer I get to him the more I feel if there "really really" is a God then I must be going straight to Hell! All these things Zen Buddhism, Christian, Catholic, bla bla bla are all just ppl searching and giving it a name and each one just "distorts" what it really is.

I don't think you need to read Bibles (though I've tried and never get anywhere w/ reading them)

do this Zen thing or chant or dance w/ snakes? Have you seen that one?

I simply think all you need to do is go to a beach during sunset or go to the observatory and stare through a scope at the stars and you achieve the same thing which is a realization there's more to life than any of our minds can comprehend.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

Sleepyhead please let me know if there are any issues w/ that file I recently put up there. Now that we don't have that script I've no way to see what is going on w/ it. I don't expect any trouble but I updated it tonight and then I could not access Teknidermy shortly after that so a few ppl may have hit it at once but it should be fine now. (just let me know though cuz I don't want to push things w/ plastic okay)

Thank you.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

Gods only exist in the minds of their followers. Which is fine as long as they don't bother others with it.

Anyway, I'll keep track of our bandwidth usage.

// crae_work / 500 weeks and 5 days ago

Okay thanks Mr. Dark and Dramatic...

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 4 days ago

Obviously maybe I'm just listening to too much Christian tunes??? hehe

But since these guys outside my window are making alot of noise painting me goes listen to more and drown them out.

Plumb - In my Arms

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 4 days ago

My new neighbour is drilling holes in our mutual wall. It's complete silence and then all of a sudden the drill starts. Freaks me out every time.

// craeonics / 500 weeks and 4 days ago

Well it can't be as bad as having guys up on ladders peeking in my window while they're suppose to be painting! (I'm wondering if they are going to knock those baby bird nest down I hope not cuz the birds haven't left yet)

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe so funny dutchy the birds are screaming out there (they sound diff) Probably getting defensive about their nest. It's not my property so I can't tell them to paint around the nest but right now it looks like they are only scraping the old paint off all the wood.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 4 days ago

Check your spam box cuz I'm at work and not sure if my mail reached you or your spam box.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 3 days ago

You should be working, not playing with your phone!

// craeonics / 500 weeks and 3 days ago

Now you broke the board w/ whatever you are trying to fix cuz my last post did not post. hehe

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 3 days ago

Well it seems it fixed itself? cuz it's apprently working now.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 3 days ago

Nah, like your emails, you got blocked for spam. One of the filters is a frequency analyser, so if you say "I don't wanna work" three times in a row, it percieves it as spam.

But I share the feeling. So bloody hot over here, I'm not getting anything done.

// craeonics / 500 weeks and 2 days ago

We were at triple digit heat not too long ago and now it's more than cut in half! we're wearing jackets 50/60's cuz we're cold can you believe it! Freaky weather...

/me begins to think earthquake or something.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 2 days ago

Okay now I'm freaking out! I took my hand off the mouse and looked away and then when I looked back this board began to scroll up and down by itself!

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 2 days ago

hehe that scared me (my batteries cuz it's not doing it now)

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 2 days ago

Earthquakes in cyberspace?

// craeonics / 500 weeks and 2 days ago

Nooo earthquakes from my mouse...

Dutchy your lil cyber nephew Sammy gave me the cutest Mother's day card today that "he" wrote:

"M"agical

"O"ne who buys me stuff

"T"he bomb

"H"helpful

"E"ver so nice

"R"ealy mad at me when I don't listen

(I seeeee I still have alot of work before me when I read "O" and "R" hehe! (so cute)

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 1 day ago

Actually on "H" he wrote "H"elpful "I" the mom can't spell right of course and typed "H"helpful (but he does)*sigh*

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 1 day ago

Okay you can stop barfing and rolling your eyes after you read that. hehe

sorry dutchy you need to take this board down before you become my Diary!!!

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 1 day ago

The O is fairly typical, I'd say.

By the way, this song reminds me that I still don't have all of Summoning's albums (even though it's not too stellar): [link]

// craeonics / 500 weeks and 23 hours ago

Sounds very pretty, enchanting, ghostly, epic and well balanced.

(I still can't figure out why "that" growling sounds good but others drives me under the bed hiding) guess it's softer, I don't know...

I could listen to that one several times today.

// Doreen / 500 weeks and 20 hours ago

Yeah, I think I'll be getting me some more cd's.

I'm beyond hope by the way. I'm almost starting to like Korpiklaani. Listening to things non-stop can do that to you.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Korpiklaani - Runamoine [Korven Kuningas, 12]

// craeonics / 499 weeks and 2 days ago

Wellll cuz of "O"ne who buys me stuff up there I can't buy myself CD's anymore! (or much of anything else for that matter)

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 2 days ago

Alright dutchy that tune of yours totally stinks biggg time! (me goes get busy)

I don't wanna clean!

I don't wanna clean!

I don't wanna clean!

/me goes to clean...

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 2 days ago

I don't want to clean either, so I'm going to postpone it... until my mother finds out. I have an excuse though: exam on thursday, so I have to study.

// craeonics / 499 weeks and 1 day ago

Well then you better be studing! And just to make sure you stay away from this thread...

Chris Tomlin - Here I Am To Worship

I cannot even believe how many different versions of this tune there is (like 50 million diff ppl tried to sing this one) but I found that guy again and he sings it the best.

Light of the world

You stepped down into darkness.

Opened my eyes, let me see.

Beauty that made this heart adore You

Hope of a life spent with You

Here I am to worship,

Here I am to bow down,

Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely

Altogether worthy,

Altogether wonderful to me

King of all days

oh, so highly exalted

Glorious in heaven above

Humbly You came

To the earth You created

All for love's sake became poor

Here I am to worship,

Here I am to bow down,

Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely

Altogether worthy,

Altogether wonderful to me

I'll never know how much it cost

To see my sin upon that cross

I'll never know how much it cost

To see my sin upon that cross

I'll never know how much it cost

To see my sin upon that cross

I'll never know how much it cost

Here I am to worship,

Here I am to bow down,

Here I am to say that You're my God

You're altogether lovely

Altogether worthy,

Altogether wonderful to me

Tim Hughes - Here I Am To Worship (but I bet when I go look him up he'll be a country singer or something)

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 1 day ago

Hmm nope no cowboy hat so he "mighttt" be okay, me goes peek around and find some more of his stuff...

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 1 day ago

Not sure what to think about this guy but me goes check him out alil better...

Tim Hughes - Consuming Fire

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 1 day ago

Eek! What's going on here?

// craeonics / 499 weeks and 1 day ago

Hey get back to your studies! I was just having a lillll worship but I must go find some new booty tunes tonight now that I'm finished.

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 1 day ago

Found it! Obviously P. Diddy can't sing so he usually needs to have a female or "several backups" to save him which is the case here but it works.

P Diddy, Keyshia Cole, Lil Kim, Busta Rhymes - Last Night (Remixxx)

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 1 day ago

// Dor_worship / 499 weeks and 19 hours ago

hehe! oh boy what happened now? (you put a worship filter!)

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 19 hours ago

Hmm... /me investigates

Umm, well, I don't know what happened there, but from the looks of things, I didn't miss much.

/me runs

// craeonics / 499 weeks and 14 hours ago

Get to your studies! I'll keep my fingers tied up over here. And I hope you do good on that you lazy bunny...

// Doreen / 499 weeks and 12 hours ago

The teacher informed us by email last monday that the exam is next tuesday. It's quite odd, because up until then, the date had been tomorrow.

Anyway, more time for me to do some slacking, eh.

// craeonics / 498 weeks and 5 days ago

So now that means you're not gonna study until Monday at 12:00 midnight?

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 5 days ago

I'm going to read the book. That's all I usually do. But it's heavy duty reading, so it will take all the time I have.

Hmm, apparently Firefox 3 has a spell check built-in. I'm getting all kinds of red lines because it's probably set to Dutch.

// craeonics / 498 weeks and 5 days ago

I don't even know how you can stand torturing yourself like that reading a big book about dead guys for a week! (You should take up something more exciting than history)

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 4 days ago

Can ride this beat all day though the lyrics and vid are rediculous...

[link]

/me goes plays some Baby Bash and get in gear for today.

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 4 days ago

Strange dutchy not too long ago we jumped from triple digit to 50/60's then back up to triple digit again and right now I heard what sounded like hail? I ran downstairs to see the comotion cuz I heard my neighbors run outside and we have rain not hail but the drops are the size of "silver dollars" and we're back down to the 60's again...

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 4 days ago

okay now if I don't try to go take a picture of this you will think I'm crazy it's sunny on one side of my house and raining on the other. hehe!

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 4 days ago

Pics came out grainy all you can make out is a black sky but sun on the ground...

My mom called she was screaming "OMG! we're going to have a Tornado!" hehe

I told her dutchy "Mom we don't have Tornados we only have Earthquakes" (that did not make her feel any better)

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 4 days ago

And now we have Thunder and Lightning? And this concludes Doreen's weather report for today. hehe!

/me wonders if my Mom is right!

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 4 days ago

Umm she was right!? [link]

In one day we had:

Rain drops the size of silver dollars

Hail

Snow

Thunder

Fierce Lightning thennn

Pounding rain

Flash Floods

Mud Slides

and the encore was a Tornado! I wonder what tomorrows weather will beeee?

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 4 days ago

It's the end of the world?

Bought some lounge chairs and a table to put on my balcony, so now I'm going to sit there, in the shade, and read about dead people some more.

// craeonics / 498 weeks and 3 days ago

hehe you meanie! well actually yesterday some thought it might be! today I'm dodging lightning bolts but still here.

Good for you cuz you have that killer view up there so that probably is a good set up to relax at...

// Dor_work / 498 weeks and 3 days ago

Yep, bit too much wind though. And we need more thunder and lightning over here, so send some over. My eyes are getting irritated with all those flower seeds (pollen) in the air.

// craeonics / 498 weeks and 3 days ago

/me tosses you some allergy meds and sends you some rain to wash the pollen out of the air.

Freezing over here today dutchy, rain and lightning and thunder (really cold) when we're usually baking in heat at this time. This is def not work weather for me I can't wait to go home Zzzzzz

// Dor_work / 498 weeks and 3 days ago

"Cold" in a climate like that would probably mean that I would melt, while you'd be wearing three winter coats.

// craeonics / 498 weeks and 3 days ago

Probably so I forgot you're a Polar Bear. Just so strange to see ppl actually wearing coats on this end cuz we normally run around half naked...

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 2 days ago

We wear coats at least half the year. Has something to do with the rain that pours down at least six months per year.

Best Cure track ever. The rest of 'em stink anyway.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: The Cure - A Forest

// crae_work / 498 weeks and 20 hours ago

Rain is getting pretty rare on this end so this weather has been completely out of the norm (specially all that weird stuff that happened on that day at once)

We have a Holiday on this side of the globe so no Dor_work or school for kids and guess what? I'm so used to being under the gun and chasing responsiblities that I don't even know what to do today!? (I'm stunned and at a complete loss) hehe

And not true about the Cure they have "(1)" other killer track but I can't remember the name of it right now since I'm still half asleep.

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 19 hours ago

Day off? Play World of Warcraft!

/me on the other hand has to study for his exam tomorrow

// crae_work / 498 weeks and 18 hours ago

/me comes talk your ear off while you snore! I've not played for a while (actually since the last time I chatted about it) at times I get obsessed w/ it other times I could take it or leave it.

Did you know that the Bathory guy had blonde hair when he was younger? Gino called me into his room right now to show me an old interview he did w/ MTV I did not even think that was him! Gino has taken complete ownership of my two Bathory CD's I have to tear up his room to find them when I want to listen to them. We were checking out some of his older tunes that I've never heard of before he not only looked diff but he really sounded different in the past.

Anyways I hope you do good on that exam tomorrow school boy! (I'm sure you will)

// Doreen / 498 weeks and 10 hours ago

I fucked up. Nasty questions like: "Who was king prior to very important king X and where was he from?". How the fuck should I know? I'm not going to remember hundreds of nobodies, I only (try to) remember the important ones. What kind of ridiculous question is that?

Quorthon (Bathory dude) was Swedish, so the blond hair doesn't surprise me. Prior to the Viking stuff it was black/death metal. He's one of the pioneers of the black metal genre.

// crae_work / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

Oh noooo how bad did you mess up? Bad enough that you need to retake the test or what? Don't stress it too much dutchy cuz in 100 years from now will you really care? hehe

That Bathory guy had alot of music that I've never heard before was pretty interesting how diff his style changed over his cut short career (me wonders if he didn't kick the bucket so young what would have been next)

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

I "think" the thing about teachers is you get the ones that simply want to earn their paycheck so they only give you questions that they already know you'll have the answers to and then there's the teachers that go beyond earning they paychecks and want to know how well "you" are really paying attention to what you are reading so they go beyond Q & A and make things interesting and test beyond common sense...

Unfortunetly for you, you got a good teacher. =)

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

The king in question was Sargon. If you look at the list of kings near the bottom: [link], and take into account that Sargons claim to fame is being the first king of Akkad, the correct answer would be "there was no-one before him". But I suspect they meant in the whole region, so that would mean it's Lugalzagesi. Okay, I had forgotten about that. Trouble is, there are four answers to the question.

// crae_work / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

Still, I'm not going to remember the whole bloody list of kings: [link]. Things like that are things you look up somewhere, not stuff to memorise.

Note that these are classes at a different faculty ("Languages and Cultures of Mesopotamia and Anatolia") and not my normal faculty ("History"). The exams are quite different in style. These are more about cramming facts, while at History, they're about insight into why things happen(ed). I refuse to cram, it's a waste of time and memory.

Ummm...

#2. No wonder you use that Wiki thing alot you can cheat! Forget the History books the answer about who was the Kings before and after him are all listed on the bottom!

Kings and Presidents and things of this nature give me a tummy ache and a really bad feeling. (since they are simple humans just like you and I so they can be fallible therefore I don't trust them)

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

I don't even trust the Pope! though it seems by the crowds he draws alot of ppl think he can be trusted. hehe

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

Oh brother? "Lugalzagesi" how in the world can you remember that one and even if I could remember that one how could I remember to spell that name! OMG! Whyyy oh whyyy are you torturing yourself like this?

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

Spelling it is easy if you can read Sumerian. "Lugal" means "king" ("lu" being "man" and "gal" great), "zagesi" I don't know. But if you know the beginning of the name, the rest comes naturally.

Had they given a hint like "The name starts with the letter 'L'", I would have known the answer.

// craeonics / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

Relax, I seriously doubt you did as bad on the exam as "you" think you did.

/me goes chase you around in the forest up the trees. The cure is coming to concert over here in a few months after a 4 year rest.

The Cure - A Forest

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

This was his other good tune:

[link]

This guy needs to lighten up on the makeup oh brother. hehe

His new tunes are yuk! And actually he's gonna be over here in LA next week!

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

Nastyyy can you imagine kissing a guy that has redder lipstick than you! ack!

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

Hey school boy "this one" was actually his bestest tune, I couldn't remember which one it was. (Blows A Forest out of the water)

[link]

Show me, show me, show me

How you do that trick

The one that makes me screammmm she said

The one that makes me laugh, she said

And threw her arms around my neck

Show me how you do it

And I promise you, I promise that

I'll run away with you

I'll run away with you"

Spinning on that dizzy edge

I kissed her face, I kissed her neck

And dreamed of all the different ways

I had to make her glow

"Why are you so far away," she said

"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you,

That I'm in love with you?"

You... soft and only

You... lost and lonely

You... strange as angels

Dancing in the deepest oceans

Twisting in the water, you're just like a dream

Just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape

I must have been asleep for days

And moving lips to breathe her name

I opened up my eyes

I find myself alone, alone, alone

Above a raging sea

That stole the only girl I loved

And drowned her deep inside of me.

You... soft and only

You... lost and lonely

You... just like heaven

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 6 days ago

No way, none of those songs come even close to the haunting atmosphere of A Forest. The only Cure remotely close to it is this one: [link]. And it isn't even their own song! It, ofcourse, utterly pales in comparison to the awesomeness that is the original: [link].

// craeonics / 497 weeks and 5 days ago

Also cool, Reese & Santonio's Rock To The Beat: [link]. An acid house classic. The simple hypnotic bassline is what makes this pure acid. I had totally forgotten about the shitty hi-hat though, but then again, all songs in this genre had those.

And let's not forget Nikki's Mucho Macho: [link]. The funny thing is, that I did look for both tracks on YouTube quite some time ago and they weren't uploaded then. Good to see them available now.

The Nikki song is apparently so obscure that no-one has commented on it, even though it's been up for a year.

// craeonics / 497 weeks and 5 days ago

As for theeee first link dutchy it don't even sound like the Cure? the song is weird and then whoever made the vid tossed pics of animals??? (Which obviously make it weirder) Second link still stinks. (just a slightly better beat) hehe

That Rock To The Beat I've never heard before t'was decent.

Mucho Macho? hehe ohhh nooooo how do you pull this stuff out of your hat dutchy? Rediculous

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 5 days ago

OMG dutchy what like 53 views? and no comments cuz what can you say? Nice dancing? It's sooo weird. hehe!!!

Coldplay massacred "Bitter Sweet Symphony"? Blasphemy! Okay, so it was the original singer of The Verve, but still.

Way, way back, I used to get compilation tapes. Both "Mucho Macho" and "Rock to the Beat" where on those. Really quite obscure, early House.

And "Love will tear us apart" rocks, you barbarian!

// craeonics / 497 weeks and 5 days ago

Rocks? It sucks and you know it! Horrible!

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 4 days ago

Other then liking their tunes alot I had no idea what these guys looked like until you dropped that wiki link dutchy...

These guys are coming in concert too apparently Sunday over here if I were a jump around in the crowd kinda girl "This" would be the only band I would go see...

Something slow by them, called "So" (kinda so so but okay) hehe

[link]

Crazy ppl making comments about relating to deaths and losing a loved one? when apparently the song is about someone leaving someone.

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 4 days ago

Dutchy when will you add an RSS thing to the board? I'm pretty sure you have a trip wire on the board that tells you when someone post but for the rest of us = me I have to keep coming over here like one of your cats to see when you come home. hehe

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 4 days ago

This isn't about that band I've never ever heard of, is it?

/me clicks

Ah, and it is. I've seriously never heard of them. This is bizarre.

// craeonics / 497 weeks and 4 days ago

You probably didn't hear of the Gap band either ancient old stuff that stands the test of time...

(atleast over here cuz ppl still listen to this alot in Los Angeles)

[link]

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 4 days ago

Argh! Dutchy do not say the word "mangled" to someone who works for a Trauma Center and then dissapear on me, what happened? Are you okay? I don't really care if you have to type w/ your nose, are you okay?

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 1 day ago

My proprioception (look it up) is a bit off, meaning that I am a bit wider and taller than I percieve. While swinging with my arm, I hit the handle of the balcony door. The handle is made of solid steel, while my hands are just flesh and bones. The area between my thumb and index finger is pretty bruised, perhaps the bone there is broken (but I doubt that).

The consequence of it all is that it's pretty hard to use my thumb and index finger on my (dominant) right hand. Had it taped up for two days, but that meant I really couldn't use it. So the tape is gone and the hurting is back.

But such is life. Work is going to be interesting. A lot of typing with left.

// craeonics / 497 weeks and 1 day ago

Get a quick x-ray silly to be sure if in a few days it still hurts cuz hand injuries are "extremely sneaky" prob have a Hairline Fx.

Sorry for jumping the gun I don't like certain words and "mangled" is one of them. I see worse things working at the Trauma Center than most ppl get to see in the worsest horror movie unfortunetly.

// Doreen / 497 weeks and 20 hours ago

I was thinking more of the metaphorical way of mangling (like "mangling words"). It's merely bruised. It'll wear of in a week or so.

If I were severely mamed, I wouldn't be happy.

// crae_work / 497 weeks and 18 hours ago

Well since you refuse to erase history then you leave me no other choice but to post more funk down here:

Dutchy I cannot believe this I never seen this vid and I "love" the Gap Band (though all my friends hated them) hehe

Check out the PussyCat Doll wannabes in that vid. hehe!

Good thing I never seen all their vids cuz I hate cowboy hats and in every vid he's wearing a cowboy hat.

I know this guy is still singing today.

// Doreen / 496 weeks and 6 days ago

Been meaning to drop this and I keep forgetting so before I get busy today some good stuff finally over here:

Chris Brown - Forever

[link]

// Doreen / 496 weeks and 19 hours ago

I don't think so but I can only assume this guy is going to hit concert or something soon the way they keep playing this song everytime I turn on the radio there it issss.

Cuz it's a bittersweet symphony, this life

Trying to make ends meet

You're a slave to money then you die

(good thing I never get tired of this one)

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 5 days ago

The money's pouring in for him probably. Every time they play his song, it's ka-ching!

// craeonics / 495 weeks and 5 days ago

That must be nice to have an income that runs itself for years to come. (specially music that's not even work)

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 5 days ago

Why do you think these "stars" are all so rich. It's royalties that float their boat. That's also why most don't like people downloading their songs.

// craeonics / 495 weeks and 5 days ago

They make enough "even" w/ ppl downloading their tunes. Can you imagine having so much money you don't even know what to do w/ it all dutchy? Rediculous what they make. All I want to do is buy (1) little tiny house by the Ocean someday but that's not gonna happen so since I'm upset I'm gonna fire up Limewire and get even! hehe

Actually dutchy remember how afraid most of them were to list their tunes on the internet via iTunes now alot of artist are using iTunes and gaining even more money using the internet to their advantage. I think Coldplay just released a new CD on iTunes. I grabbed a sample but it was no good and I'm trying not to make them richer while I just get poorer so no more CD buying for me. (I've got boxes and boxes and when I count what that cost me I could have bought my house!!!)

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 5 days ago

When I feel like floating around whilst I work I go hit this place and now today I see this:

[link]

(note the "new" iTunes button on right) *sigh*

Every single store that I used to run into to go buy my material CD have "all" shut down cuz now all the artist have pretty much turned iTunes. pretty unreal...

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 4 days ago

iTunes, the program, is a particularly shitty piece of bloatware with just one redeeming feature: the ability to view and play other people's (on the network) playlist.

iTunes, the store, is something I'll never use. I want my music in a material form, or in other words, on CD. In that sense, it is perhaps fortunate that I listen to obscure stuff that does still gets released mainly on CDs.

// craeonics / 495 weeks and 3 days ago

Mr. Dark and Dramatic as usual, I have to agree w/ you but my iPhone forces me to use it. I think things will change as you and I know it soon CD's will be a thing of the past and you may still get your music by snail mail but in the format of a small memory stick. hehe

I was going through my boxes of CD's recently and couldn't help but feel these too will be a thing of the past.

Anyways enjoy your day off me has one more day to slave for my money.

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 3 days ago

/me been playing Guitar Hero all day. My left arm is totally cramped from hitting those frets.

// craeonics / 495 weeks and 3 days ago

hehe you're so silly dutchy (but yesss that one is fun) hehe

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 3 days ago

I swear dutchy when I went through those boxes of my CD's I realized two things:

1. I think I was born the wrong color and sex.

2. I'm getting as old as the hills now!

/me goes clean tooo:

Ohio Players - Love Rollercoaster

(it stilllll sounds killer to me) Mmmm mmm mmmmm!

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 2 days ago

I have this sneaking suspicion you're talking about 70's stuff now.

// craeonics / 495 weeks and 1 day ago

Not sure what year but ancient stuff I found in my CD boxes that I pulled out and have been listening to like Ohio Players, Gap Band, Dazz Band, War, which they play alot over here in Cali still today (but I remember being a kid and making alot of mistakes to them tunes so now I feel ancient!) anyways since you have two cats you're raising "Happy Daddy Day"

/me goes get ready and visit my Mom and Step Daddy today for Father's Day...

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 1 day ago

Today's father's day? Hmm, well, my present was not dropping in on him then.

// craeonics / 495 weeks and 1 day ago

After all the electric shocks he got fixing your place? Welllll all I did was fix their computers when I dropped by my Mom and Dad's place.

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 1 day ago

It's like this ritual now when I walk in their front door:

Me: Hi Mom, Hi Dad *kiss kiss* How you guys been?

My Mom: Oh fine, fine how you been hows the kids?

Hey Doreen do you think you can take a quick look at my computer? I can't seem to send mail out, I get some msg that pops up and then can you take a look at Dad's computer too he keeps getting a weird error msg that keeps popping up when he opens his browser. Something about a Trojan?

Me: *sigh* me goes to work whilst they pet my lil brother and sister (their cats) and I slave...

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 1 day ago

At least yours know what a trojan is. Mine go like "the printer is broken and it's your fault!". Or at least my mother, my father likes to brag about how he doesn't know jack about computers.

// crae_work / 495 weeks and 1 day ago

Nooo they don't, they only know how to read the word "trojan" that's about it. And usually when they say the printer is "broken" it means "paper jam" *sigh*

Anyways judging from the map of my day today I need some exquisite crunk to pull me through...

Three 6 Mafia - Lolli Lolli (pop that body)

[link]

// Doreen / 495 weeks and 19 hours ago

Fortunately my mom fixed things herself. Don't know how she did it, because I had taken a look at things and did not see a solution.

Faith no More's best track. Probably no coincidence that it is an early track.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Faith no More - Epic

// crae_work / 494 weeks and 6 days ago

My mom is getting alil better than my step Dad but still they have problems on their machine every hour! I think it's cuz they go to online gaming sites and play games which have a ton of pop ups and advertisements etc.

/me is listening to Gino listening/blazing Bathory

cuz of my illegal vitamins he's now called Gino the viking! (I'll post a pic of him when I can trap him in a corner to take a quick pic cuz he's camera shy)

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 6 days ago

You should cool down on the steroids you feed that kid, sis.

// crae_work / 494 weeks and 6 days ago

Remember he asked if I could give him some of my hair vitamins a few months back? welll he went from buzz to Viking (a phase he's currently on) so I'm going to get his hair down to his lower back.

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 5 days ago

So strange I'm listening to complete silence cept my fan on my desk. I don't hear one single bird nor my maniac parrot, probably cuz it's 98 degrees and we're all just trying to breathe at the moment. hehe

It's so hot you would die dutchy.

/me goes finish up my work for the day and toss my boys in the pool outside.

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 5 days ago

Mmmmm mmmm mmmm!

/me is listening to dutchy's fav

Pussycat Dolls - When I Grow Up

(pretty decent vid too) [link]

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 4 days ago

"Pussycat Dolls" and "decent" in the same sentence? Impossible. They're just as crap as that Paramore shite that's playing on tv over here at the moment. Emotionally unstable kiddie band.

// craeonics / 494 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe you're such an old man for being only *cough* 16 *cough*

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 4 days ago

I was born old. I don't even listen to lyrics, but this Paramore stuff is so bad, I can't avoid it. The chorus is this:

# That's what you get when you let your heart win, whoa.

- [link]

People stop using phrases like "that's what you get" when they pass the age of ten. Don't do it, it sinks any credibility the song might have had (far fetched as it might have been, seeing that the rest of it is all drama, drama). And seriously, filling up half the chorus with "whoa", just means they couldn't come up with any words to put there.

I think I'll just stick to demons in forests. The only thing they do is scream, growl, hiss and be menacing.

// craeonics / 494 weeks and 3 days ago

hehe dutchyyy demons in forest (you evil bunny) wellll you most definetely do not want to check out pussycat dolls lyrics they're totally rediculous but I'm usually after the banging bass not the lyrics (though sometimes I just get so curious what are they actually saying) which in turn "sometimes" turns me off on the their tunes after I read them.

I've never everrr heard of Paramore and judging from when I ran to youtube last night for a quick check I was not missing much. Now when I hear a tune I sometimes have to check out youtube to see the vid which in turn "sometimes" turns me off on the tune. hehe!

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 3 days ago

I "think" the best and only true way to listen and "enjoy" music is to "listen" not read nor see...

/me is a happy camper today cuz I have air conditioning here at work!

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 3 days ago

I come to have lunch w/ you and you're nowhere to be found (prob cleaning a liter box)

/me drops a few crumbs and goes back to work...

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 3 days ago

Help! Help! I'm melting, I cannot believe what I'm about to say but I actually want to run back to work it's 96 right now at 6:30pm

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 3 days ago

I'm still hogging my cousin's PS3 (due back on monday), so I'm mostly offline this weekend. I really don't listen to lyrics much, unless they're so bad that it can't be avoided. Though I do have the nasty habit at work of doing runtime translations of what gets played on the radio.

Now this song is excellent:

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Heidevolk - Vulgaris Magistralis [Wodan heerst, 03] [link]

// craeonics / 494 weeks and 3 days ago

hehe! /me goes shake that off and go hit the beach today...

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 2 days ago

Oh wow check this out! [link]

They found "ice" Instead of these geniuses spending billions searching for ice cubes on mars they should be concerned about what is going on here we "climbed" to 99 degrees at 8:30pm I think something is wrong when temps climb instead of decline at night?

We all slept in the swimming pool last night it was rediculous...

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 2 days ago

You can't really examine Earth. Too many people who get in the way.

// craeonics / 494 weeks and 2 days ago

This is not earth lately this is sheer Hell where I'm at, we can't even sleep unless we stay in water to keep cool. The property by the beach is double and so are the rents cuz the temps are 10-15 degrees cooler over there but I'm thinking about moving again (prob is my kids are not going to be happy about it)

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 1 day ago

God finally caught up with you and is giving you a preview of what he has in store for you.

If moving means your kids will be changing schools, they'll probably not be happy about it. It means having to make new friends and what not. Not cool.

// crae_work / 494 weeks and 1 day ago

I think so too so I told God I would not listen to bad tunes anymore. hehe

(course I was back to crunk w/i a few hours)

Seriously though it has been unbearable dutchy you've no idea what it feels like trying to sleep in upper 90's to triple digit heat it's like trying to sleep inside your oven!

I checked things out and thought about things and I can't move my kids are thriving right here a move right now will mess things up for them. But I just want to jump out of my skin at times.

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 20 hours ago

Interpol - Rest My Chemistry

I find this tune to "sound" slow and sexy (and to keep it that way I think I'll take my own advise and not check out the lyrics nor vid)

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 17 hours ago

Wasn't there a band called Interpol a thousand years ago? Anyway, while you're melting, my cousin called. He's back from Italy and wants his PS3 back. Eek! Playtime's over.

// craeonics / 494 weeks and 16 hours ago

Don't know if that band is old or new (but they're new to me though)

We've got an XboX360 I pay $23 a month at blockbuster for a "gamepass" so they can play as many games as they want for as long as they want or they'd kill me in just one week renting games and then you have to return them in only a few days vs this way they can exchange games out in days or weeks depending on what they like (I want to kill them when they take one out and then bug me after only 1 hour to go return it cuz it's a bomb)

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 13 hours ago

Since they are on summer vacation I suppose we are going to make Blockbuster very upset they ever came out w/ this gamepass thing cuz they do not know my kids very well. (we'll be getting our moneys worth and then some!)

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 13 hours ago

My brother was planning to take his first trip to Italy in Sept (but I know he'll never make it cuz his wife is so jealous) she'll never let him go and he told me he can't afford to take her and his lil girls cuz the price is so rediculous for the tickets from here...

// Doreen / 494 weeks and 13 hours ago

Stop rolling your eyes and jussss be thankful I'm not boring you w/ pics of both of my boys but as promised here's Gino's before and after my hair vitamins.

I could not find a pic of when we started (cuz this guy dodges the camera like crazy) so this pic is of how he always had his hair before his viking phase started up it's about a year ago though he actually started growing his hair out for only a few months now (w/ the help of my illegal vitamins that is) hehe

Anyways onto the pics...

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 5 days ago

Me, plus the rest of the interweb that reads this thread. I can imagine going from shaven to shoulder length might be a shock to you. Wait 'til it reaches halfway down his back (in six months or so).

// craeonics / 493 weeks and 5 days ago

But I wouldn't blame it on the "vitamins". Hair grows two to three centimers (an inch or so) per month. How long it ends up depends on how good he is at dodging the dreaded scissors.

/me has been avoiding scissors and camera's for sixteen years

// craeonics / 493 weeks and 5 days ago

Shock to me? nah to him though cuz he didn't think his hair would grow so fast. The only problem is that over here in Cali it gets extremely hot (as you can tell from my crying everytime we hit triple digit) and most the guys and girls over here cut their hair to keep cool and now he is crying about how hot it is and I told him wait till it gets really long then you'll have a legit reason to cry! (But ponytails do wonders in the heat he'll be okay)

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 5 days ago

Oi, he may have keep the hairs in his neck short then. That's where things get hottest.

// craeonics / 493 weeks and 5 days ago

I personally don't expect him to last until it gets much longer. hehe

he's already crying about how hot it is to have long hair but time will tell how bad he wants it. Once it gets alittle longer I'll tie it up for him (I live in ponytails I only take my hair down when I go out)

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 5 days ago

Another thing I'm finding amusing is listening to him when he gets out of the shower cuz before he would just towel off his head and be done w/ it and now he has to comb his hair and fight w/ knots and tangles which I let him do for a while (being the evil mom that I am) before I turned him on to my big tooth comb a few days ago...

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 5 days ago

My tooth comb has the amount of teeth as someone who's been living on the street for years and losing more on a daily basis.

Funny how we get attached to them. I've had mine for so long I don't even know how old it is nor where I actually bought the thing its turned into a family heirloom and now I gladly hand thee Royal big tooth comb down to thee next generation.

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 4 days ago

Mine don't last long, so I don't really get attached to them. Just too lazy to get a new one.

// craeonics / 493 weeks and 4 days ago

This is what I'm talking about silly, (mine is black though) I've had it for years but it sounds as if you are using a sort of brush? cuz you mentioned yours was loosing teeth or did you mean bristles?

I use this first then a brush, otherwise you rip half your hair out and get more split ends.

[link]

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 4 days ago

cept I know I didn't pay no 4.25 over here there is no such thing that cheap, I probably paid 10 or more for that plastic life saver...

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 4 days ago

Oooh, I don't have one of those. I mean the ordinary kind (and I mixed up comb and brush). I don't brush my hair when it is wet.

// craeonics / 493 weeks and 3 days ago

I didn't think so from what you said (that is the one you need trust me if you don't like pain)

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 3 days ago

No pain, no gain. Besides, if you do it yourself, there is no pain.

/me vibes to this awesome track which is waaay too short

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Utah Saints - Something Good (2008 Remix)

// craeonics / 493 weeks and 3 days ago

There's a technique to it though you need to start combing "gently" from the bottom up to the top otherwise you rip your hair out if you start combing from the top to the bottom. (don't know why I'm evennnn bothering to tell you this cuz you're a guy you'll be going bald in a few years) hehe =)

And I don't know why I'm laughing at you cuz I'm gonna look like an old witch in a forest w/ stringy long hair...

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 3 days ago

I swing it forward and then brush (don't use a comb) from root to tip. If I run into a knot, I stop, unravel it and then continue. After that, I flip my head back and voilà, instant volume.

No way that I'll be bald! A little thin perhaps, but baldness does not run in the family.

Boo Boo you mean the Katinas? I only seen them once when they played at a Church I went to but I cannot find that one tune but here alil info on them:

(They're all brothers)

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 1 day ago

You got me searching around here is one and basically the "only" one I really liked of them and they are singing w/ Out of Eden apparently off some album it says Godspell or something:

[link]

I think it sounds beautiful...

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 1 day ago

I've got no clue why I'm listening to this interpol stuff cuz they're way off from my usual taste in tunes but I'm hooked on them lately...

Interpol - Obstacle 1

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 16 hours ago

He kind of sounds like that guy from the Talking Heads? (I think that was the guy, never really liked him) anyways this one is Mmmmm mmm mmmmm!

Interpol - Rest My Chemistryyyy

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 16 hours ago

oh boy don't know why I did it but my ears opened up and the one I like is about a coke head the other one is stabbing himself in the neck (I jusss had to check out the lyrics)

I cannot believe how lyrics are such a contrast from the sound of the songs "sometimes" and I cannot believe some of the trash I listen to when I "really listen" to it or I should say read it! hehe

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 16 hours ago

Okay Boo Boo I found the full version of that song you asked me for but again it's not just the Katinas apparently they are singing w/ someone called Out of Eden and it was listed as Christian Techno when I came across it the first time I think it's beautiful but don't check out the lyrics cuz she's talking about putting a peeble in her shoe and wanting ppl to watch her walk? hehe (jussss playing it's a pretty tune)

[link]

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 15 hours ago

Listening to it now... (and now she is naming the peeble she put in her shoe! hehe

I swear I need to go back to blocking out the lyrics!

// Doreen / 493 weeks and 15 hours ago

You're forgetting that I'm a poet too. 8) A little depth and symbolism, even in less than captivating forms, still sparks my intrigue. ^.~

Except for alternative songs where they throw in random words to sound deep, charismatic, and mysterious. >.<

Oh, ya, I' listening to your song. =^.^=

// RedBoo / 493 weeks and 10 hours ago

Well there's not much depth and symbolism to most the tunes I listen to. hehe!

Cept my Church type tunes I was listening to that song alot today cuz I found it again and I suppose she was talking about walking a painful path w/ God and "dared herself" to make it even more painful by tossing a peeble in her shoe and she named the peeble "Dare" hehe

I guesss some lyrics are completely crazy I've yet to find a perfect tune that sounds beautiful and has perfect lyrics to match it.

Figures I think the tune is totally sexy and it looks like they may be singing about "milk"

But I don't care! I like it! I like it alot! hehe (and I found the d/l)

// Doreen / 492 weeks and 2 days ago

The one with the kid (actually two kids, identical twins) is the official video. The story is that the band was too lazy to shoot their own video, so they organised a contest and let their fans make 'em and the winner would be the official one.

It's always hard to tell what they're talking about with this lot, because half the lyrics are gibberish, but I believe it's about a guy who thinks he's cool. And an unrelated chorus at the end on koetjesrepen ("little cows bars"), a type of chocolate candy bar.

I knowwww I already seen that it's not on any of their albums nor is there any place for those of us living in the US to even order any of their CD's (I checked all over the place)

That's what I get for listening to what you're listening too! I'm not doing it anymore!

// Doreen / 492 weeks and 15 hours ago

If we'd all be listening to the same, it would be quite boring.

// crae_work / 492 weeks and 2 hours ago

No kidding which is why I keep listening to your stuff...

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 6 days ago

Oh well back to listening to my own tunes (if they played this in the elevators I wouldn't mind riding in them so much)

Flo Rida - Elevator

Only tune I'm not sick of "yet" over here though they play it over and over again...

Goedenacht you old man me goes get this day out of my hair...

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 6 days ago

/me comes talk to you whilst you're in la la land...

I found a Bit Torrent the other day when I was searching around trying to buy that Shenkie tune on a CD. I found a CD (Bit Torrent) named "De Machine" which has tunes named Applaus, Centje Centje, Buma In Mijn Zak, Flap Flap, Sorry, wopwopwop, Deze Donkere Jongen Komt Zo Hard and this one I don't even trust it's a word at all! "Datvindjeleukhe" hehe! Anyways dutchy they sound totally Electronic.

Niet Als Jouw which was very slow and draggy diff sound and the style (it don't even sound like it belongs on the CD w/ the rest of the tunes)

Sooo strange I may have to listen to this for weeks and weeks to figure it out! hehe

(very diff dutchy)

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 5 days ago

Do you have Dutch Christian tunes over here I need to confuse me ears further and see what that sounds like.

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 5 days ago

here = there

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 5 days ago

me = my

Seeeee I'm listening to that Niet Als Jouw tune right now and my fingers can't even type!!! hehe

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 5 days ago

You can spare me the lyrics on that one dutchy I get the feeling the lyrics are complete trash (but I like the sound of that one the best) the other ones are a bit too much pop/electronic or something. So strange though...

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 5 days ago

Q&A with Dr. crae is now in session.

1) They sometimes get mislabelled as a hiphop band and then criticised for not being hiphop, but it's really more electronic music.

2) Initiating auto-translation...

- De machine = the machine

- Applaus = applause

- Centje centje = little cent, little cent

- Buma in mijn Zak = BUMA in my pocket (BUMA is the Dutch organisation that keeps track of music copyrights)

- Deze donkere jongen komt zo hard = this dark kid comes so hard

- Datvindjeleukhe - youlikethatdoncha, literally: that find you nice, hey; or in other words: "you think that's nice, hey" or "you like that, hey"

- Niet als jouw = not like your. Jouw is your, jou is you.

3) Yeah, there are Christian bands here as well, but I ofcourse don't know any of them.

// crae_work / 491 weeks and 4 days ago

Thank you Dr. crae for that translation (yesss I'm overly curious)

And I obviously don't expect you to know of any Christian Bands but help me find some cuz I can't read/understand when I try to search for them "please" lazy bunny? (just a few cuz I want to hear what that sounds like)

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 4 days ago

I forgot this one on the CD:

Er Is Een Hitje (which is freaky seeing a word start w/ two "Ee's" short tune but good)

And when you guys say bad words they really don't even sound like bad words! they sound funny! Oh well me goes listen my CD and get another day out of my hair.

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 4 days ago

Er is een hitje = (literally) there is a little hit, probably to be read as: we have a hit (record).

If you want to find Dutch Christian music, you could try searching for "christelijke muziek".

// crae_work / 491 weeks and 4 days ago

Okay thank you dutchy...

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 4 days ago

Sooo frustrating cuz I can't read it (can't even figure out where to click on them pages)

This is actually my #1 spot to stream when I feel like floating around whilst working I like it cuz though it's considered a "Religious" type station it still has a semi-secular flavor to it. (I don't like that over gospel sound)

[link] I want to hear a "stream" like this one dutchy help me find one "please" I want to see what that sounds like in dutch and it's easier w/ a stream than trying to search out MP3's I don't even understand what to look for!

It will take you a minute when it will take me hours to find one.

// Doreen / 491 weeks and 4 days ago

"You may have reached this page because our system recognized that your IP address may be outside the continental United States. If so, you may choose our low bandwith option below. The low bandwith option features a 5k music stream optimized for slow modem connections."

What the hell?

Trouble with the whole Christian music thing over here is that they play mostly American tunes, since the whole religion thing is bigger at your end of the planet. I've heard some programs in the past and zapped across shows on TV, but they were mainly with US artists. So I highly doubt that there is such a thing as a station streaming specifically Dutch Christian music.

And ofcourse, the really religious lot think radio, TV and the Internet are tools of the devil and want nothing to do with it.

// craeonics / 491 weeks and 3 days ago

Quick google yields the following list. Haven't listened to anything, so I don't know what they play (maybe talk radio or even classical music). And note that some may be off the air on sundays.

[link]

[link]

[link]

[link]

And I still suspect most play US artists mainly.

// craeonics / 491 weeks and 3 days ago

As for the "really religious" may God have mercy on them trying to avoid radio, TV and Internet or anything else in this world.

First link = English

Second link = Christian Dutch

Third link = 50/50 (but need to really check it out better tomorrow)

Forth link = OMG *Gag* Pope'ish organ church style stuff.

I'll be jumping back on the second and third ones again tomorrow "thank you" dutchy cuz I couldn't understand the words on the pages telling me what links to go to etc.

/me washes away the superstition with some fancy tunes

Cool tune, be it somewhat simple. And the video has foxes!

Wiley - Wearing my Rolex: [link]

Full version (audio only): [link]

// craeonics / 490 weeks and 6 days ago

/me is listening to cartoons blazing behind me and the usual Mom! Mom!

And about those foxes I don't know whether to smack you or laugh...

// Doreen / 490 weeks and 6 days ago

alright that's cool (never heard that before dutchy who's that?)

// Doreen / 490 weeks and 6 days ago

I don't know. First (and probably last) time I've heared of this dude. It's a bit simple, but it's a nice tune.

// crae_work / 490 weeks and 6 days ago

/me comes irritate you w/ my "superstitious" tunes:

Switchfoot - This Is Home (actually this stuff is making me sleepy today)

// Doreen / 490 weeks and 5 days ago

Which jussss changed to something that woke me up hehe!

dc Talk - Jesus Freak

Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!

What will people think

When they hear that I'm a Jesus freak

What will people do when they find that it's true

I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak

There ain't no disguising the truth

Kamikaze, my death is gain

I've been marked by my Maker

A peculiar display

The high and lofty, they see me as weak

Cause I won't live and die for the power they seek

Oh bloody hell... /me runs off to cook some food

// craeonics / 490 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe! Hey I was nice I only listed those two.

// Doreen / 490 weeks and 5 days ago

De Jeugd Van Tegenwoordig - Niet Als Jouw

Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!

Not only does those words look strange to meeee Firefox is telling me it's all misspelled!

// Doreen / 490 weeks and 4 days ago

That's the trouble with them spell checkers. They can only presume what language something is written in (as in: the same as everything else).

I'm supposed to head over to a barbecue today, but it's pouring, so it looks like it's going to be thirty people in a very small house. Argh!

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Immortal - Throned by Blackstorms [Battles in the North, 04]

// craeonics / 490 weeks and 2 days ago

I thought Firefox would identify and correct "any" lingo regardless of what lingos you've got installed on your machine but apparently when I type even firefox w/o capitalizing the "f" it says it's misspelled too! hehe

Anyways enjoy your BBQ (save me some!)

/me goes wake up my kids and go hit my moms today...

Something I've not listened to for a while...

Joe Budden - Fire

// Doreen / 490 weeks and 13 hours ago

I think this jusss might be the most beautiful tune Kutless has ever made...

Kutless - Promise Of A Lifetime

/me goes float around on this and try to get something "productive" accomplished today.

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 6 days ago

Productivity is highly overrated.

Just when I thought I was completely fed up with ...and Oceans style of music, I happen to run into the last track of the last CD I ever got of them, dating back to 2001. Weird stuff.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: ...and Oceans - New Model World [Allotropic Metamorphic (Genesis of Dimorphism), 09]

// craeonics / 489 weeks and 6 days ago

And productivity makes you tired.

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 6 days ago

Ideally, when you're in a creative mood and are doing interesting things, you derive energy and motivation from being productive.

A lot of big words. It's a good thing my filter doesn't check for that.

// crae_work / 489 weeks and 6 days ago

Well that explains why I seem to have more energy when I'm skinning than when I'm working cuz when I'm working I pray alot.

/me is still floating around whilst working againnn...

Nichole Nordeman - Holy

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 5 days ago

Laugh as you may dutchy (you may already know this) but I just came across this today by accident and it blew my mind cuz I'm always struggling w/ these stupid cords, check this out...

[link]

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 4 days ago

Well, what can I say? Life is full of challenges.

/me melts in the scorching heat

// craeonics / 489 weeks and 3 days ago

And you learn something new each and every day. hehe

take that heat like a man you wimp!

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 3 days ago

If you never hear from me again, the heat has gotten to me. Oh no, who will look after the cats?!

// craeonics / 489 weeks and 3 days ago

Try triple digit heat you wimp! you'd be dead in 5 mins (I have to litterally sleep in the pool w/ the kids)

And I have no idea why this is currently playing in this office right now:

Soft Cell - Tainted Love

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 3 days ago

Mmm, Soft Cell. That's actually the only Soft Cell song I know.

Meanwhile, as the day nears its end, the heat my house if finally cooling down. Since I don't have a pool, I'm going to have to get creative.

// craeonics / 489 weeks and 3 days ago

/me sends you some of our unusually cool weather that we're having right now (hmm actually what is cool to us right now is what you're dying over right now) hehe!

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 3 days ago

/me sends the sun packing

After carefull window blind management, I managed to keep things cool here all day. The trick is that things like this take time. Direct sunlight has to be kept out of the house at all costs and there should be a constant draft.

Doesn't keep my cats from laying on the floor like corpses ofcourse.

// craeonics / 489 weeks and 2 days ago

I keep my house closed up like a tomb when it's super hot and when dusk comes I open everything up. I avoid the sun like the plague (I hate it but it's really hard to avoid it over here) so the grocery shopping don't get done until night cuz I usually run my errands at night when it gets cool.

Since you live upstairs dutchy I'm pretty sure you will have the worse of the heat (cuz it rises, when I come into my office upstairs it always feels 15 degrees hotter than when I run back downstairs) I seriously doubt you know what "real" heat issss. hehe! =)

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 2 days ago

I don't normally begin to cry until it hits between 96-109 degrees at that point I'm on my knees praying cuz all I want to do is jump out of my skin and there is no where to go at that point cept into the shower or the pool to calm down.

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 2 days ago

Maybe you should move to Alaska? But since you live near the coast, shouldn't there be a sea breeze most of the time? That should keep things bearable.

// craeonics / 489 weeks and 2 days ago

Only if you live by the beach it's bearable but other then that or in the Valleys it's sheer Hell. And if I could keep my job and live in Alaska I would since I'd rather be cold than hot. It's 7:00am and me sees my neighbor is already in the pool.

The only prob w/ the beach is that it's over crowded over here it partyland over there...

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 1 day ago

Here's a typical beach day over here at just one of our beaches (though I showed you this vid before when I came across it and it's ancient) this is what it would be like if I went down to Venice Beach "today" most of the secluded Beaches are only for the rich and famous or I have to climb down a rock cliff to get myself to some secluded Beach.

But this one is circus city...

[link]

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 1 day ago

Depending on what kind of sound system you have you will either pass this tune up or fall in love w/ it:

Filter - Take My Picture (there's a hidden steady bongo drum in the bg that is killerrr)

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 1 day ago

I don't know what's up with the streams on the interweb these days, but they all stink. "Back in the days" you would at least stumble across something good every once in a while.

// crae_work / 489 weeks and 18 hours ago

That's cuz they removed all the reggae streams you old man...

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 15 hours ago

Plenty of reggae out there. But unfortunately it's either that wailing roots reggae crap or dancehall, both of which really gets on my nerves. I need some good dub stations, damnit!

DI.fm is crap as well these days. One boring, monotonous mix after the other.

// craeonics / 489 weeks and 12 hours ago

You're a complaining old man! hehe

/me is listening to a garbage truck outside and it's beeping backing up sounds (totally exciting) *sigh*

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 11 hours ago

Here's something decent for you to listen to tomorrow when you're at work...

[link]

// Doreen / 489 weeks and 11 hours ago

I've no clue how the electricity and the internet is still working but we just had the biggest earthquake today!

/me goes clean up the mess...

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 6 days ago

The biggest earthquake would be when the San Andreas rift decides to dump you all in the Pacific. But I hope your house is still standing.

And no way I'm going to listen to Bob all day long.

// craeonics / 488 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe you are sooooo mean! I hate youuuuu!!!!!

It felt worse than it actually was dutchy cuz I could have sworn it was over a 6 mag but it was around 5.8 when me and Sammy ran outside the water in the pool was waving out of the pool! The manager is filling it back up again right now, (strange it sustained not a crack) All the phones both LAN lines and cell phones were down until about 30 mins ago. So all seems fine now...

/me is listening to the news obviously and as usual they are trying to scare us more by saying this is a precursor to something bigger (but only God knows that)

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 6 days ago

Conclusion over here was that this type of earthquake occurs in California every two years. Given that, one would suspect that they keep quakes in mind when building stuff. Then again, I've never seen my walls shiver.

// crae_work / 488 weeks and 6 days ago

It was alil more than walls shivering, things fly off the walls and bookcases at you, your hanging fans, lights sway all over the place and besides everything shaking violently the "air" vibrates w/ this scary sound you cannot imagine. totally freaks me out (and everyone else for that matter) Takes weeks to calm down and get back to normal cuz everytime I hear a vibration from a truck passing by outside I jump out of my skin. But such is life...

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

Surely it is not the first time you've experienced a quake? You do mortality stats, so you should know that probably not that many people die from quakes in the US.

Ah, dubstep.fm is actually bearable today.

// crae_work / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

Welllll we've not had a quake as strong as this one was in 14 years so I forgot how scary they are. When this stuff happens the last thing I'm thinking about is stats. hehe!

I ran straight for my kids who were running straight to meee!

Anyways me is listening to the air (which feels and sounds safe atm) I'm stilll scared dutchy!

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

You know what's so strange is I was feeding my parrot and both me and him heard/felt the vibration in the air and freaked out at the same time "before" the whole ground and house began to shake (though only seconds before it happened) both me and my bird reacted at the same time, he flew into the side of the cage and began to scream and then a few seconds later the cage was flying across the room! Then of course I ran to the kids who were running straight for me too...

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

It's like when you go swimming and have water in your ears and you feel this really bad pressure in your head and then you hear and feel violent vibrations in the "air" that hurt your head. (sounds crazy but that's what it is) and then after that about 10-15 seconds you can "see" things around you physically moving at that point.

Just thought I'd let you know since you've never experienced an earthquake.

/me tries to get some work done I'm still shaking and I can't even concentrate on my work that I need to finish before Friday comes. *sigh*

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

I think I know the sound you're talking about. It's a bit like when someone keeps the engine of his/her car running stationary in a closed off space and the sound bounces of the walls and starts to resonate in your head.

We have a courtyard at work were people can park their cars and sometimes the above situation happens. The droning gives me splitting headaches.

No earthquakes over here. We're in the center of the tectonic plate and quakes can only occur on the edges.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Borknagar - The Dawn of the End [The Olden Domain, 08]

// craeonics / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

I'm checking out your dub link now (putting a link on my phone since I can stream when I'm at the gym on this 3G) pretty decent, definetely different...

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

[link]

I'm taking that one w/ me later! But yes the sound is something like that the vibrations make me ill and I can't stop shaking afterwards "inside" even my legs get weak. hehe!

weird I don't know...

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

I've been sitting here trying to work and I get (Don't laugh!!!) but I get dizzy and faint everytime I feel the aftershocks so I go here to see if I'm going nuts or am I actually feeling these stupid little aftershocks and I actually feel them. I can't understand why nobody else feels them like I do? I think I'm "overly" sensitive or something.

[link]

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

Dutchy that dub station is strange (this tune that just came on is really weird) hehe!

How in the world do you find this stuff!

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

I was looking for a decent dub station ("dub" being an "evolved" form of reggae focussing on the bass and rhythm). Long story short, there is no such thing, but I did find dubstep.fm. They yell at me at work because I tend to play it all day long when I listen to it.

Maybe you should sit on a pillow or something, so that you don't feel the aftershocks.

// craeonics / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

This station is strange cuz it has a huge mix, some actually sounds like rap/hip hop while others sound like wellll I don't know really? just a mix of everything! can't even stick it into a category. I'm going to check it out for a while, you can't judge these stations too quickly cuz it's always a hit and miss if you only give it 30 mins depending on what they toss on that half hour.

And I can't sit on a pillow cuz I'm working but I'm okay I just needed to block it out (which this station is helping) hehe

g'night dutchy...

// Doreen / 488 weeks and 5 days ago

I've got my eye set on this little laptop: [link]

Basically the same idea as the Asus EEE PC and the MSI Wind. I could use a small, portable machine like this, to surf the web while sitting on my balcony or doing some typing without having to sit behind a big screen on a desk.

Ordinary laptops don't cut it, because they're just way too big, clumsy and expensive. The whole area below the keyboard is usually so bloody massive, it pains my eyes.

Now this Aspire One isn't particularly stellar in appearance, but it's the best of the lot and also provides the best price/quality ratio, both on specs and appearance.

It's dirt cheap too. Most basic version is €300 (~$450), which is way cheaper than a "normal" laptop.

Trouble is, these things are so damn popular that they're sold out everywhere. Waah, I want one!

// craeonics / 487 weeks and 6 days ago

Argh I can't see your link cuz the site is apparently in flash and I can't install flash on this machine here. (Have to check that toy out later) but yes portable is the way to go dutchy gives you more freedom and then you can be comfortable when you work or surf...

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 6 days ago

Here are some pics for the flash-less amongst us: [link]

Went to an electronics store today to get one, but they only had one on display. It did intrigue me even more, because it's basically the size of a book.

In other news, went and ordered some new CD's and the server of the shop crashed on me half way through the payment process. Grrr...

// craeonics / 487 weeks and 6 days ago

That is small looks like the perfect solution to wanting affordable portability "but" you're a tablet kinda guy so why not wait alilll longer save up more money and take the dive for something you will reallyyyy enjoy like a tablet notebook.

Did a quick search and this was the lowest price I could find but these things have really come down in price and now most of the kinks are ironed out since the first one I played w/ at a Comp USA a couple of years ago (this would be more you)

[link]

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 6 days ago

Still kinda pricey compared to the one you've got your eye on but I found this one too that looks pretty decent (you'd really have to do some searching to find the right one priced affordable)

[link]

When they first came out they were over 3,000 over here on this end so now it seems you can get one for 1,000

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 6 days ago

Which is way too expensive. My psychological threshold is €300 plus a bit (around $450) for the total deal (including tax, prices are always including tax over here). So a machine

that's twice that has a really small chance and thrice that is for all practical purposes simply not happening.

Same thing for the PS3. It's about €400 ($600) right now, so I'm not buying it. If it drops to €350 ($525) I might be enticed and if it sinks to €300 ($450), I'll definitely get one.

// crae_work / 487 weeks and 6 days ago

Dutchy you have wayyy too much self discipline for your own good!

I "think" PS3 has that Blu-ray thingie so you basically get two things for the price of one, a game player and a killer movie player. (or you could jussss pretend you're getting your moneys worth) I may get one for X-mas as a gift for my two boys (and me)

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

Killer movie player? I have a fast computer and the Interweb to plunder in my pirate ship.

Nah, I don't buy movies. I usually wait until they're broadcast on TV (years laters and with commercials). I don't have a DVD-player either (not counting my PS2).

// crae_work / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

Oh boy you really should let me come over there and totally destroy your life in 24 hours. hehe!

I'm a bit destructive I told you and when I die I will surely owe alot of credit cards money (but it will be my payback time in which I'll get even w/ them for all the stupid high interest they charge!)

If I ever get told I have 6 mos left to live watch out cuz then I'm reallyyyy going shopping even more!

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

My 11 yo Sammy is like an old man always yelling at me even when I buy a 99 cent app for my iphone, he's like "Do you reallyyyy need that mom?" and I'm like "Ummm yessss I do I need to tap on my iPhone and hear water splash and see a fish swim around"

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

Kids keeping their parents in check? The state of the world today... Madness!

// crae_work / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

Yeah they try to keep me in check (drives me crazy)

Mmmmmm dutchyyy look at thisssss one!

[link]

(I bet it feels totally fluid when you write on it) I'm not into tablets but I have checked them out and some are like writing on sand but some were really fluid and feel smooth as silk and the software that comes on these tablet pc's are really cool, you have to check some of the higher end ones just to feel them out of curiosity you'll be surprised.

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

OMG check this out:

"With Verizon Wireless BroadbandAccess Built-In"

there&rsquo;s never been an easier or more convenient way to work on the Verizon Wireless high-speed wireless broadband network. BroadbandAccess has wide-area coverage, mobility and secure CDMA technology and works in 181 major metropolitan areas, covering over 148 million people.* It&rsquo;s the NetworkSM that lets you work wirelessly without a PC card or the hassle of having to locate Wi-Fi® hotspots.

Means you're connected on that thing anywhere, anytime, anyplace w/o those cards or hotspots or tapping into wifi's etc.

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

What is that mess? (Anyways that is a copy n paste from that other link up there)

Built in Verizon 3G high speed always connected internet!!! But then look at the price tag that really issss ridiculous...

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

Eek! That's way too expensive. I'm not too keen on tablet PC's. In theory it sounds great, but the glass plate has got to be really thin in order for it to work well.

/me is greedy

// craeonics / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

Yesss you are!!! hehe

g'night dutchy I'm sure you're greedy "and" tired about now...

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

But actually I know exactly what you are talking about and I've seen a few and most are exactly that "thick" and when you write on the tablet it feels "sandy" I've only seen one that was completely fluid and smooth (felt really good) you'd be surprised how well they made that particular one but it was priced ridiculously of course...

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

The surface also shouldn't be too smooth. That's the trouble with Wacoms and the like. They have a smooth plastic finish and that just doesn't work well when you're drawing. It should have some sort of texture really.

Ofcourse I can always put a piece of paper on the tablet to get that texture...

// craeonics / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

Look at this dutchy here's that Eee PC you mentioned?

[link]

I've never seen these before but looks like the 7 inch model goes for 300 dollars while the 10 inch model goes for around 700 dollars.

I've got small hands but you being a guy you may not be able to even type on these small keyboards but this one really looks good...

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

The 7" model has an 800x480 resolution. That's totally unacceptable. Plus the EEE PC has a big, ugly bulge in front of the keyboard. A problem most laptops have.

The Aspire One on the other hand, does not (well, it does, but it's smaller), so that's why I want that one. Unfortunately, the one with the specs I'm after won't be out 'til September.

Keyboard won't be much of a problem. It's roughly the same size as the one I use at home.

// crae_work / 487 weeks and 5 days ago

This one looks like it may give WOW some competition when it comes out. I've had my acct closed for 2-3 months or so now but I may try this new game out (but only if it has the usual trial first)

That's the traditional Games Workshop Chaos Knight design for you, like here in the board game HeroQuest (which I happen to own): [link].

I've played neither, but I'd say WarHammer is more grim and gritty than WarCraft. Whereas WarCraft started as a computer strategy game, WarHammer is routed in table top battle sims that involves shelling out tons of cash for tiny figures that have to be painted and what not. WarHammer games take forever and while my friends and I do play long session strategy games once in every blue moon, WarHammer is a bit too much.

But I've heard rave (p)reviews about the online version.

More Chaos Knights: [link] (that site really needs hi-res images).

// craeonics / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

You have those figurines? Those are completely insane (love em) I was going to have my WOW character made into a model figurine and Gino's Sam didn't play as much as we did cept when my brother got us fired up when he'd come into town and surpise us, but they wanted wayyyy too much money to make the figurines so I thought maybe around X-mas time I would surprise Gino and get mine too but thennn we suddenly stopped playing since the moods come and go so I closed our accts to save some money. This WarHammer has me pretty excited I can't wait to check it out next month and compare the two. Gino tried to jump back into EQII but I knew it wouldn't last cuz when I played that it got dry pretty quick (though the challenge was good, it's visually dry)

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

hehe look at that! (completely cool)

[link]

Oh boy I'd much rather go play and game it right now then work today but I must earn that privledge!!! hehe

/me goes get busy...

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

Custom figurines would probably be expensive, yeah.

I have the HeroQuest game, plus three expansion sets, which means that I have plenty "tin soldiers". We just never play it, because it's pretty hard to get into. Especially compared to the video games of today.

And ofcourse, you need at least three people to play (one dungeon master and two players to go through the dungeon), but it doesn't get interesting until you have five. And everyone should be intimately acquainted with their characters abilities.

// craeonics / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

You need a magnifing glass to see those lil dungeons and dragons figurines (they are too small though they still look cool)

Later I have to find you the link on WOW where you actually can have "your" very own char in WOW made into a figurine, I really wanted one but they were too expensive and me having kids it's like how come you get one and I don't! (they drive me crazy) They never just let me play! hehe

But very neat idea cuz me don't want just a figurine I want my very own char figurine done up, but oh well someday my char in WOW was only I think lvl 64 or 65 when I left off I never did get her to lvl 70 and now I think they up'd the lvl to 80! I most likely will activate the accts again in a few months or let my brother open it up again for me when he comes back into town to visit us and play.

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

But as far as playing those fantasy board games, after playing a vid games or online games it's kind of hard to really get into it cuz you can't enjoy casting spells w/o seeing fire and lightning and sparkles!!! That's like trying to dance w/o hearing music!

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

Seems they have these now: [link]

Argh! It seems it was some sort of special or something they had back when I was playing cuz I can't find it now. What you did is take a ss of your character dressed up in whatever armor he/she wants and send the ss to them and they "build" you a figurine of your personal character. I wanted one badly but didn't get one cuz I would have had to buy all three of us one and they were pretty expensive.

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

100 dollars each!

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

I want it!

I want it!

I want it!

Makes me want to activate my acct and play again just looking at it! But me is too Zzzzzz now from my day. *sigh*

// Doreen / 487 weeks and 3 days ago

You want it, but what they want is your money. Bunch of swindlers.

Speaking of swindlers, remind me never to buy bootleg tapes again. Ran into an Immortal bootleg for a bargain price. I normally don't buy unofficial stuff and usually it's just live (illegal) recordings, but in this case it contained two demos with songs I haven't heard before.

But, ay ay ay, the sound quality is positively dreadful. I can disinguish the typical Immortal sound, although the "singing" is different. Unfortunately, the tracks are covered in thick layers of noise, hisses, cracks and pops.

// Doreen / 486 weeks and 3 days ago

You can merge with the crowd and be just like everybody else or you can be a little bit more original and try to stand out.

I still say it's just a phase though.

// craeonics / 486 weeks and 3 days ago

Well his friends all think he's a freak so I'd say he's standing out a bit. I'm having fun observing him, he's at that "who am I phase" (I admire him being himself and always going against the grain)

Oh and nowwww you're all up and ready to play whilst I on the other hand have a mean skinning hangover!

I get these stupid skinning moods that come out of nowhere and go nuts, I got home and decided last night to do an update on a patch for my iphone (you've know idea what that entails) cuz then you have to jailbreak the phone to get back into it so you can start allll over again to customize it piece by piece (to make a long story short I went to bed after 3 in the morning fooling around w/ my stupid phone!)

// Doreen / 486 weeks and 2 days ago

I have to show you a few really neat things (maybe next weekend) if you don't have the time to implement where we can view images in our threads then I'll send you a zip and you can do whatever w/ it, post it or toss it. I was going to put something together today but I've got to go visit my mom w/ the kids. My mom needs to do my hair (so I need to go skin myself today)

I did it dutchy! I survived! I gave Gino his first moonlight driving lesson tonight! He did excellent (must be all them car racing games he plays) hehe

// Doreen / 486 weeks and 5 hours ago

Wow! No driving here until you're eightteen. And parents giving lessons is out of the question.

// crae_work / 486 weeks and 2 hours ago

Say what!? over here it's a driving permit at 16 yrs of age and at 18 you can go solo w/ a license. I'm actually late trying to teach him (cuz he's already 16 going on 17 in 2 more months) I was scared so I kept putting it off but last night I decided to do it cuz I was in one of my Kamikaze moods.

He blew my mind he drove like he's always known how.

// Doreen / 485 weeks and 6 days ago

Over here it's drinking, marriage with parental consent and scooters at 16, cars and marriage without consent at 18, and financial independence at 21.

Got my drivers license at 18 or 19 and haven't driven since.

Maybe he's already taken your car for a spin when you were sleeping.

// crae_work / 485 weeks and 6 days ago

I know Gino had a really good friend that was an exchange student at his school from Germany the kid was practically living over here w/ us cuz they hung around together so much, Gino even took a class to learn German so he could communicate better w/ him and we learned allot about things on that side. This kid drank Beer over there already cuz it's legal! Gino doesn't drink, smoke or do drugs not cuz I'm a strict mom or anything like that but cuz he told me he don't like it. (told you I'm Blessed) you really don't have control over who your kids will be at all no matter how many ppl believe they do in regards to controlling them and how much money they have. They will eventually be who "they are"

As for him taking my car for a spin, believe it or not coming from a mess of a mom like me my kids are actually pretty good kids (when they mess up their guilt over takes them and they confess to me) I expect the worse but hope for the best and so far God has truly Blessed me and I still don't understand how that is possible.

// Doreen / 485 weeks and 6 days ago

His friend left back for Germany a few weeks ago and they had a big bash at the Beach before he left but Gino didn't go cuz he said they were going to party and drink and I told him go have some fun you may never see this kid again he said no I'm not interested mom I've spent "my" time w/ him and we've had fun.

They now keep in touch online over the kids myspace page apparently the kid is already back in school over there now whereas my kids don't return to school on this side for two more weeks.

// Doreen / 485 weeks and 6 days ago

(They don't speak soft)

// Doreen / 484 weeks and 2 days ago

I mean they don't speak "Softly" not soft and "I" don't speak correctly. hehe

My favoritest ride at Disneyland the Haunted Mansion

[link]

// Doreen / 484 weeks and 2 days ago

And my second favoritest ride at Disneyland Pirates of the Caribbean

[link]

// Doreen / 484 weeks and 2 days ago

Plenty of amusement parks over here, like De Efteling: [link], which houses the best attraction ever, Carnaval Festival: [link].

Yeah, yeah, don't give me that look. It's a kiddie ride, but it's so freaking awesome. Last time I was there (two decades ago) I went into it three times in a row, I think.

// craeonics / 484 weeks and 1 day ago

Sooo funny (you're jusss like me) I can't even count the number of times I've ridden on the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean on the Pirate one it looks similiar to that De Efteling one where you float on water as you experience the ride so it's both enchanting and exciting when you go down dark tunnels and splash down slopes etc. plus w/ the water you get both senses of visual and smell totally stimulating, my 11 yo is a freak like me (he's my clone) he said "Mom I love the dark musty wet smell in the Pirates of the Caribbean it makes the whole atmosphere just right he said." hehe!

// Doreen / 484 weeks and 1 day ago

Dutchy that second one you posted is adorable! looks like a ride called "It's a small world" at Disneyland [link]

// Doreen / 484 weeks and 1 day ago

Carnaval Festival is incredibly corny, but it rocks so bad.

The only downside is that in most amusement parks you have to stand in line for ages. Really spoils the mood.

// craeonics / 484 weeks and 1 day ago

Same thing over here (unless you time things right) I avoid crowds and long line and do everything off the normal hours so you need to hit Disneyland on a "weekday" vs a weekend or Holiday (when the rest of the whole world flocks there)

Urgh... Completely generic and absolutely lacking in bass. Where's that bass at? It can't be these laptop (now with XP, by the way) speakers that eliminate it, there must be no bass in the song!

And, Jesus H. Christ, what kind of bandwidth do you need to smoothly play that vid? My wifi's grabbing a solid 100k/s and still it buffers.

// craeonics / 483 weeks and 2 days ago

You can't honestly think that lil toy will play deep bass on it do you? That vid looked as clear as I ever seen before obviously not playing from YouTube which totally destroys any vid cuz the quality is so yukky!

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 2 days ago

Yikes forget YouTube this place really does have some excellent quality vids (another good one and one of my favs)

[link]

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 2 days ago

It can't play bass the way it should, but it also doesn't filter it out. There was no bass in that song. Booo!

// craeonics / 483 weeks and 2 days ago

Depends alot on your sound system unfortunately to get some good bass you have to put up w/ disgusting lyrics (as you know)

I'd stay away from them girlie "dogs" if I were you. If you want a dog, get a real dog, not something my cats would eat for breakfast. Plus, small dogs tend to have illusions of grandeur. They think they're big and bark at everything. Big dogs (real dogs) are much calmer.

Oh, and don't get a puppy on impulse, period. Pets should never be impulse "buys".

// craeonics / 483 weeks and 1 day ago

I know you're right I thought about it all night long, and I've never had a foo fee dog before I've only had bodyguard dogs that would eat you if you came near me. But this dog is just so adorable I've never seen anything like him before.

But I'm going to try not to look at him and try not to get him. hehe

He's just soooo cute! I really don't need anymore work though.

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 1 day ago

Ummm he has puppy breath argh! (nooo I've not said yes "yet") but Sammy is getting attached to him, she said I can borrow him when I want until she sells him...

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 1 day ago

By the looks of things I'd say he's already been officiously adopted.

// craeonics / 483 weeks and 1 day ago

Nope, I really don't think I want another thing to have to take care of but like I said she is still trying to sell him so in the meantime she said I can "borrowwww" him I only took him for an hour today to cuddle but I'm veryyyy proud of myself I did return him. hehe

He's sooo cute though! (and he's got puppy breath) but you're right I need to stop being so impulsive.

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 1 day ago

What's "puppy breath"? Dog breath reeks (cat's too).

// crae_work / 483 weeks and 20 hours ago

Not when they're puppies they smell different. hehe

Anyways I'm alilll late to the party but I think I'm finally growing up cuz I decided I'm "not" getting that puppy, I thought about "everything" this time (Sammy's not happy about it cuz he got alil attached to him)

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 20 hours ago

Actually I think this is the very first time I made a non impulsive decision!

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 20 hours ago

Actually I think this is the very first time I made a non impulsive decision!

And twice too. /memo to self: fix the bloody double posting once and for all

Anyway, good for you. A wise decision. Besides, if she breeds 'em, he can always go next door.

// crae_work / 483 weeks and 20 hours ago

I know, t'was this big decision dutchy. hehe

First, all the tenants are required to pay a 300 dollar deposit when you get a dog because of the carpet etc. and I told her no way I could afford that on top of buying the dog and that I would not dare to ask the Manager to give me any special treatment over that, so "she" went to him and asked him to wave the 300 dollar fee for me so I would buy the dog from her! And the manager said yes but to tell me not to tell any of the other tenants he did that for me! So she came to me to tell me last night she got that issue resolved for me "but" there's just so much more that goes along w/ him like taking care of him, potty training him, his shots and that expense! Just all of it and I'm done cleaning poop for anything or anyone now. hehe!

Another words my kids are enough responsibility for me and now that they are getting more independent I like it! I had nightmares all night long about it and made my decision this morning. I felt so bad Sammy was sad but I would be the one stuck not him or Gino no matter what they say I know I always am the one that gets stuck.

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 18 hours ago

They can get a dog when they move out. Real Italian men don't move out until they're thirty, so it might take a while.

I would like a dog, but I'm at work most of the day and leaving your dog alone for so long is not good for him/her. Which is also why I have two cats and not just one.

// craeonics / 483 weeks and 14 hours ago

I don't know about 30 I may have a cut off limit of about 21. hehe! I do want to have some of my own life left to live when they move out. (but I seriously doubt that)

You're place may not be suitable for a dog they need a ground floor and patio/yard to run to when you're at work or it would be difficult for you. Cats are more suitable when you're higher up like you are.

// Doreen / 483 weeks and 12 hours ago

Nah, plenty of space for a dog here. Let's not forget dogs need to go for a walk at least four times a day (and puppies even more). They can run then.

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 6 days ago

Technically speaking they're not my cats, I'm just "borrowing" them from the pet shelter, who hold the right to take them back if they are mistreated (and the right to visit and check). As a consequence, they have the silly names the previous owner gave them: Romie (the pussycat) and Spooky (the tomcat) and that are also the names in their animal passport.

I call 'em Romiepomie (or Pomie in short) and Spookjedookje (or Dookje or Dokus) or Boeboe (booboo) in general. Depending on my mood it can also be: monsters, tail beasts, long leg cat (Romie has exceptionally long legs), poelies, etcetera.

They don't listen anyway.

hehe so cute dutchy, but are you serious? they can actually come and repossess your cats? (I've never heard of such a thing)

And I've no clue what I've got but it must be the flu cuz it's literally kicking my behind pretty good.

/me grabs that chicken soup and hits the bed...

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 6 days ago

And Romiepomie and Spookjedookje aren't silly names?

@Doreen: that's quite common over here, I think most pet shelters work like this. It's a second thing altogether to enforce this though.

// Pk / 482 weeks and 6 days ago

Yeah, but those are just "pet" names, not their official ones.

// crae_work / 482 weeks and 6 days ago

And to add to what Pekomon said, when I got them, I had to sign a contract with the pet shelter, which amongst other things stated that I should take care of annual vaccinations and that they have the right to knock on my door and check up on the cats and what not.

// crae_work / 482 weeks and 6 days ago

Vaccinations, good point! Periko -my cat- needs his yearly shots sometime this month. I completely forgot about it.

When I got Periko I basically agreed to a oral contract along the lines of "don't you dare to mistreat him". It also came with a clear definition of the enforcement action "or you'll be in great pain". Works for me :)

// PK_working(-ish) / 482 weeks and 5 days ago

I've only heard of such contracts when a child is under some sort of custody where they need to make sure the parent is not mistreating the child or not taking care of the child properly etc. and even in those cases from what I've heard they don't even do a good job of following up care. (but over an animal I've never heard of such a thing)

Shots over here run about 35 dollars and one of my mom's cats caught a virus and she took it to the vet and it cost her $500.00! Can you believe that, and he's an alley type cat but she and my father love their two cats as if they were their kids!

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 5 days ago

That vet was probably a rip-off then. No way a single shot can be that expensive.

// craeonics / 482 weeks and 5 days ago

Wasn't a shot the cat was so sick my mom said she was falling over and could not eat or anything so she took the cat to the vet expecting to have to put the cat down but instead the vet put the cat on IV fluids and meds and kept the cat for a week and revived it. Seems it was a virus and would have died but the vet was able to revive her. My mom is making payments to this vet now 100 dollars a month she owes 500 bucks! hehe

But she said it's worth it she loves her cats (I think more than meeee!) hehe j/k I think it's cute when I go over there and see her and my stepfather and their two lil kitties...

I think I need to go to the vet I mean Doctor cuz I feel half dead I think I really do have the flu dutchy I've been taking it easy but I feel worse not better so I may have to go get checked (me looks for sympathy) hehe

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 5 days ago

What! no sympathy! /me goes finish up something and go jump back in bed...

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 5 days ago

Sympathy is for sissies (or the devil). Toughen up and get well!

I have officially lost my mind cuz I'm on hold and listening to some classical music w/ a flute and I think it sounds good?

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 19 hours ago

Oh my god, who are you and what have you done with (or to) Doreen?

// crae_work / 482 weeks and 18 hours ago

I think it's just my ear drums all messed up or something from this flu cuz my head feels all stuffy. hehe

Go clean your litter box you!

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 17 hours ago

Or actually you probably are not even home yet but rather on the bus sitting next to someone w/ really bad body oder about now...

// dor_evil / 482 weeks and 17 hours ago

I have to take your lil cyber nephew Sammy to the Doctors this afternoon (cuz he caught my flu) and was running a fever all night, but I prob should ask the Doctor to check my ears and see why flutes are sounding good to me now. hehe!

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 17 hours ago

Buses are for plebs. Real craes ride bikes.

// craeonics / 482 weeks and 14 hours ago

hehe you're funny dutchyyy.

/me goes look up the pleb word...

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 13 hours ago

And nooooo I was not kidding me has never heard of that pleb word before you bike riding dutch guy!

My findings: In British, Irish, Australian and South African English pleb is a derogatory term for someone thought of as inferior, common or ignorant. In Dutch it is used literally; someone may be part of the Plebeians. See also: prole.

(Degrading words on our end don't "sound" quite like that) pleb sounds so funny to me.

// Doreen / 482 weeks and 13 hours ago

It actually dates back to Roman days. On one hand there was the aristocracy (no need explaining that), which was less than one percentage of the population that held most of the money and power (okay, so I am explaining it) and on the other hand there were the plebeians (plebs in short), the common man.

The bike, by the way, is the bicycle kind of thing, not a motor bike.

// crae_zzz / 482 weeks and 10 hours ago

And there goes my dutch history guy, also I'm aware what kind of bike you nut. hehe

w/ the price of gas on this end I should get a bike but I can't toss two kids on the back.

You're gonna have me calling ppl plebs over here and they'll think I'm crazy!

goedenacht dutchy...

Oh stop being so picky and check it out it won't kill your browser!

Dutchy I got that Wii and it's insane! (specially the tennis) problem is the kids don't let me play! hehe

It's veryyyyy cool though my first opinion of it was "That's so silly who's gonna actually buy that stupid thing and play virtual games? it's too fake!" It's competely fun! (plus it's healthier for the kids cuz it gives them alil more exercise)

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 5 days ago

Guess I'm too much of an old school gamer, because none of the Wii Sports games were interesting. I sure as hell am not going to swing that remote around like some idiot who's never played a game before.

Besides, Guitar Hero is much more fun.

// craeonics / 481 weeks and 5 days ago

Jussss close the curtains so your neighbors don't see you acting crazy, but it's fun! (atleast the tennis one is fun) It's rediculous watching them play the boxing one though...

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 5 days ago

When I stole my cousin's PS3, I played Guitar Hero for six hours straight and had a numb left arm for two days afterwards from all the fretting.

Here we have a track whose sheer awesomeness is hard to topple, but unbelievable or not, they did indeed manage to butcher Guru Josh' Infinity '99 with this sucky remix.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Guru Josh Project - Infinity 2008

// craeonics / 481 weeks and 3 days ago

They have Guitar Hero for the Wii (that's Sam's fav) but it's 89.00 so it will have to wait, I got them the Wii and the guns and a few accessories but I rent the games cuz I've got that game pass I told you about at Blockbuster.

I've got to keep them lil guys busy so mom can jump into Warhammer (installed the game last night) but the stupid patches took so long I did not get to even play the game.

anyways, currently listening to the office air conditioner...

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 3 days ago

We were checking out those lil tin mans as you call them (those figurines that you hand paint, rediculous 185.00 for a 2 inch model!!! but still neat to see all those things and board setups etc.

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 3 days ago

It's cool stuff, but you need a lot of space to set 'em up (and no cats to mess them up) and oceans of spare time.

// craeonics / 481 weeks and 3 days ago

No kidding when I go visit my mom it drives me crazy that their cats romp around even on their tables I said yuk don't they step w/ those same feet in their litter box that their walking all over your table with?! nastyyyy (cute cats but they run the whole show at my moms house completely)

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 3 days ago

And nooooo I still did not get that puppy, I just borrow it when I feel like I want to cuddle w/ it for an hour or so and then return it to her (let her feed and clean up after it) she has not sold it yet...

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 3 days ago

[link]

Still not sure what to think "yet" but definitely not as I expected, though the characters are modeled better, atleast the female ones are (cuz most games if you're a female you have to play some funky female character you don't really like)

Nasty lag that made it hard to enjoy, the user interface and layout is much better than wow, less intrusive but the spells are not as spectacular as wow so it seems there's alot of room for improvement cuz everything is still very choppy in respect to the texture of all the graphics (but it's early on so I'm sure we'll be in patch hell for quite awhile to come now)

// Dor_Zzzzz / 481 weeks and 3 days ago

Yeah, but is it the lag or your machine that can't handle the resolution.

My cats run this house, by the way. Claws get driven into me when they think it's time for me to get up (read: when they're hungry).

// craeonics / 481 weeks and 2 days ago

So though you said you will neverrr get married nor have kids and want to be free you're a slave to two cats? And nope cuz I adjusted all the settings that usually cause lag but it could be the server. At any rate after I mop the decks over here today I plan on jumping back on that ship!

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 2 days ago

The good thing about pets is that they don't talk to you. Give 'em food and a little attention and they're all purring and happy.

// craeonics / 481 weeks and 2 days ago

Something I've not listened to in a while:

First time I see the vid to that song dutchy...

Anyways I've taught two lil boys a good lesson on challenging me to play Wii today (royally kicked both their behinds)

And I'm going to try to wrap up that article of mine tonight after we eat dinner so maybe next weekend you can post it but only if you've got your school biz taken care of and out of your way and time permits (other wise you can toss it into our deep freezer)

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 1 day ago

Welllll the article can wait alilll longer cuz me wants to go watch the Love Guru. (some silly flick I rented)

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 1 day ago

Should have finished that article cuz that movie was horrible, his worse flick ever (beware on renting that one) hehe

/me comes to toss my dutchy some tea...

// Doreen / 481 weeks and 19 hours ago

Got to fire up the dish washer first, because I'm out of cups. Wasn't Love Guru with Eddie Murphy? He's never going to reach his old level again.

/me delves into the past

Here's the track DJ Paul made right when he started to sell out and do Happy Hardcore instead of Gabber. In time he did come to his senses, but then it was already too late.

I was actually looking for an earlier track of his called "The Music", which is awesome, but you can imagine it's rather hard to find with a title like that.

// crae_work / 479 weeks and 2 hours ago

He's wants one too but not right now maybe next payday I'll have to get it.

Apparently these viking guys always take pics the crowd in their concerts so he took a pic of the crowd that Gino was in and since he was up in the front he got in the pic, he was so excited since Amon post these pics on their my space site and he spotted it last night, I have to admit though they are pretty good...

// Doreen / 478 weeks and 6 days ago

Mwah, not so good. The bassline is really, really boring and gets old fast. Probably because it's too moshy and not deep enough. It should hover a bit and you should feel it more than hear it.

You know it rocks. You're just in denial.

While we're playing Superhits of the 80's, here's one of my anthems. Mainly because of the chorus (I/I live amongst the creatures of the night/I haven't got the will to try and fight/against a new tomorrow). I used to think this was two distinct songs. She passed away a couple of years ago, by the way.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Laura Branigan - Self Control [link]

// craeonics / 478 weeks and 5 days ago

Laura Branigan also covered my true anthem, Forever Young: [link]. Pales in comparison to Alphavilles original: [link].

However, even they were topped halfway through the nineties somewhere by a cover by a one-hit wonder dance act called Interactive: [link] (behold, alpha waves and breakbeats!). I had to sift though a trizillion crap versions with the same name to find that track again. I taped that song back to back fifteen times or so back in the days.

// Doreen / 478 weeks and 5 days ago

OMG dutchy I reallyyyy don't know what to think about that Forever Young tune, it sounds so funny to me! I swear it's so weird...

/me goes back and "tries" really hard to listen to the whole thing.

Okay that 3rd link you posted of it is alilll more tolerable [link]

(actually much more tolerable) but the other two oh noooo. hehe!

How sad dutchy apparently she had a few headaches and no warning and was gone. One thing is for sures there is no time to worry about being forever young cuz "life" goes too fast...

Haven't played WOW in about 6 mos (didn't realize so much time passed) but I created a new character (Mage) and I see the entire game has been upgraded and is outstanding now!!!

Warhammer was a bit too dry for me, though maybe I did not spend enough time in it to give it fair judgment but the "only" thing I thought that was good about it was the fact they designed the female characters right and in WOW the female characters look extremely cartoony "but" the spells are totally addicting!!! sooooo me goes jump back into WOW and try to level this mage up some...

Ah, so that's where you've been hiding the past week.

// crae_work / 477 weeks and 18 hours ago

No t'was not hiding last week (I was moody or something) so I decided to jump into WOW over the weekend since my brother is coming out Saturday to drive me nuts I might as well get ready again...

Apparently they've done a overhaul upgrade on the game so I was shocked, next month a new expansion I think is coming out (from what I've been reading and hearing) so this will be good from the looks of the upgrades already.

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 5 days ago

I think spoonman faded back into Skindom only to get SkinBase on the road and then faded out again.

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 5 days ago

I think he got lost in making his music and that MySpace thing sucked him up into it's blackhole. We may never see him again! But snowy can never leave us... =)

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 5 days ago

I'm actually afraid to go check out skinbase that site attacks me w/ completely annoying "audio" and flashing blinking ads but it's the audio ones that reallyyy get to me can you imagine the stupid ads are talking to you now!

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 5 days ago

Now I've got seven lil glyphs (as you call them) on my computer screen that I don't hear but they still talk to me and then now I've got ads that I hear that I don't want to hear actually talking to me!

Dutchy I was watching some flick the other night and that stupid Rockwell tune was being played in the movie. (I hate you) hehe

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 5 days ago

Jazmine Sullivan - I Need You Bad

This girl sound identical to another female artist of which I cannot remember her name atm. cool tune though...

// RedBoo / 476 weeks and 5 days ago

Hey Boo Boo has decent taste in tunes!

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 5 days ago

Speaking of music, the CD's I ordered a month ago have finally been sent. They were in stock and paid for, so I don't know what the bloody delay was all about.

Get home today and I find a not from the mailman that I wasn't at home when he delivered the mail (a simple envelope with CD's doesn't fit in my mailbox? Yeah right), meaning that he'll try again tomorrow. Guess what, I'm not around then either. So tomorrow I have to peddle to the other side in town to the post office to pick up up. Why don't these bozos deliver in the evening!

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 4 days ago

I'm surrounded by locked gates and the mailman does have a key "but" UPS or FedEx guys don't so I normally have to stick something in the gate to hold it open for delivery or I have the same problem of having to run down to UPS or FedEx to pick up anything I order for delivery. (royal pain)

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 4 days ago

I rallied my mother to be mailman sitter. Fortunately, she's crazy enough to do it and lives around the corner.

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe! Thank God for moms...

If it's that Amon Cd let me know how it is.

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 4 days ago

It should be that CD. But I have to to school first, so I'll find out when I get back.

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 4 days ago

And it is their new album, plus three other CD's. The Amon Amarth album is packaged in a rather thick DVD case (two CD's and a DVD). I still say it would have fit in my mailbox.

Can't check it out right now, 'cause I'm out to eat.

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

A DVD too? me is curious... Gino is playing so much of their stuff but he goes to their myspace page and listens from there or downloads off the net a few tunes so he's got me hooked and if they come back to Cali for another concert I'm going w/ him next time. (But not in the mosh pit, I go sit up in the balcony area) hehe!

// Dor_work / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

He said they were going nuts and were drinking beer out of special viking challets (or whatever you call them) right on stage. He said they were just a reallyyy diff breed from what is usually seen over here (very authentic style) I know he had alot of fun (the best he ever had he said)

I better get busy...

// Dor_work / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

"Actually where is that snowy at!"

I'd be right here ;P

Married/divorced, only once. Doubt either will ever happen again ;)

Skinwise, I'm only hanging out at WinC now, still being a pain in the ass rejecting other peoples "hard work". I stick to only working in the shadows now.

Skinning is a semi-closed chapter in the Snow-book.

/listen

* Snowman is listning to: Judas Priest - Prisoner of your eyes

// Snowman / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

A closed book? Tsk, heretic.

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

No kidding I'll be skinning till I die! Last time I strolled by WC I was confused the msg board looks ummm I don't know or have the time to say but it was not comfortable. hehe!

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

Anyways, me is happy to see you again...

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

/me is listening to Gino blazing myyyyy Bathory CD (gonna shoot him) but I forgot how good it sounds...

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

Yikes! Blood and Iron...

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 3 days ago

The new Amon Amarth thing is better than their last album. I did fall asleep while listening to it though and can't recall a damn thing about it.

It was better, catchier, but still rather generic.

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 2 days ago

Stupid computer I was typing and shut off on me! Anyways thanks I'll probably go ahead and order it for him, early in the a.m. over here and I already hear him blazing Amon from his room and my ears are not even awake yet...

/me goes get ready for my brother (finally his wife agreed to come this time to visit so that means no WOW marathon I think)

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 2 days ago

The bonus CD and DVD are a full live concert, I think (don't watch DVD's). So if you manage to get your hands on that, you can check out their on-stage antics.

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 2 days ago

Where did you order yours from? Or is it some dutch place I won't be able to read? Why did you order one w/ the DVD if you didn't want that? I'm sure you only paid extra for that.

I'm not a fan of going to concerts and stuff (cuz I despise crowds) but where they performed at when they came over here was a place called house of blues and it's a rather small place from what I seen of the pics and from what Gino said so if they come back I'm actually going to go check them out, they have balcony seating up and away from the stage and mosh pit so obviously I'll be up from there checking them out. He was trying to get me to go w/ him and his friends but I think it time we cut that umbilical cord between us and he go have some fun w/o me now...

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 2 days ago

I'm a sucker for digipaks and limited edition bonus stuff, that's why. I'm always more of a collector than a consumer.

I got mine here (this had better parse right): [link]

Let me see, the normal CD is € 14,50 and the deluxe one I got was € 23,50. So I was swindled nine quid. The bastards!

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 1 day ago

Moving on to other acquisitions, this dude must really like this song this is the third album it is on (and in the third version). Still rocks.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Falkenbach - Heathen Foray [Heralding - The Fireblade, 01]

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 1 day ago

Hmm good link thanks...

/me goes check out a few of their vids (by the look of this first one the lead singer needs to lay off a few beers and go hit the gym a lil bit) but I guess that's the way of the Viking? hehe!

// Doreen / 476 weeks and 1 day ago

Well, that's one guy I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. He's build like a rock.

// craeonics / 476 weeks and 1 day ago

/me is not listening to nothing but my neighbor is driving me crazy w/ his smoking cuz he is downstairs and his smoke is drifting up into my window where I work from in my room! *cough* *cough*

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 6 days ago

That's annoying. I have a similar situation, yet weirder. When my neighbour smokes, traces of the fumes actually come through the walls. There must be some holes or cracks somewhere.

// craeonics / 475 weeks and 6 days ago

I swear dutchy I can hardly breath when it comes up here through my window but I can't tell him anything cuz #1 I don't have enough nerve. hehe and #2 The guy is outside trying to enjoy his bad habit!

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 6 days ago

Let him enjoy his habit on the other side of the street then. Smokers should be forced to wear a fishbowl on their heads so that they and only they inhale the foul fumes they exhale.

// crae_work / 475 weeks and 6 days ago

What I wonder is how they can stand it? especially when I feel as if I'm actually "suffocating" just breathing a little bit of it when it comes up into my window.

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

Since I came across this tune now it seems I'm hearing a 100 diff versions of it (all are good) including the one I'm currently listening to:

Savage - Swinggggg

Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!!!

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

They're stupid, so they don't notice the foul air, not that they smell.

// craeonics / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

Takes my breath away, so I still don't know how they can breath whilst filling their lungs up w/ smoke, anyways he was gone today Thank God...

And yet another tune that gets remixed to death but since the base is decent all the remixes are decent...

[link]

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

Not too stellar, but not bad either.

// craeonics / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

Go to sleep school boy.

g'night...

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

/me comes talk to you whilst you're snoring as usual and I'm wide awake!

Finally spotted her vid to her tune, I actually disliked this tune but after you hear it a few times it catches you!

/me goes hop around to:

[link]

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

An aptly named tune, I'd say. Weirdo video.

We switched back to regular time this weekend (so the clock got set back an hour). Been sleepy the entire week. *yawn*

// craeonics / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

I know dutchy we switch our clocks back in 3 more days (I hate it cuz just when I adapt to the change we switch it again!) hehe

g'night sleepy head, me tries to leave you alone (I'm not even gonna tell you what I'm listening too either!)

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 5 days ago

/me is listening to a leaf blower outside my window which is totally irritating! (and yes I'm getting older and moodier) hehe! But that sound is the worse sound you could ever hear!

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

/me is freezing to death here

The heating system is running but for some reason it feels really cold in here. Or perhaps I'm just sleepy.

// craeonics / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

/me sends you some heat there's plenty of it over here as you know from my crying about it all the time...

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

I think it's just cuz it's your first cold time in your new home dutchy go by your fireplace and pretend it has a fire in it! hehe

I was looking at your weather and it issss cold! yikes! 35? I can't imagine that...

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

Actually it says 34!? is that right!? OMG!

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

I've seen them though I doubt they sell well over here but they have these blanket that have an electric plug that you actually plug into the wall and they heat up. Don't you guys have them over there? If so w/ temps of 34 I seriously don't know how you manage to keep warm w/o running your gas bill up high. You better buy one you cheapy! I don't know what they cost though cuz I never need one but I remember seeing one...

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

I have heaters in every room, but the thermostate that controls 'em is a bit weird. Plus the heat seems to dissipate real quick. Airflow is a bit strange too.

Nah, I'm probably just tired. This winter time things is really hitting hard this year.

// craeonics / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

That's cuz you're turning into an old man and can't take it anymore! (you need to move over here and sweat w/ meee)

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

Yeah, right. Next thing you're telling me that my hair's going to go grey.

// craeonics / 475 weeks and 4 days ago

For all I know you could have purple hair! (but you'd still be my dutchy but w/ purple hair)

// Dor_work / 475 weeks and 3 days ago

Hard to chit chat w/ eyeballs all over the place! Anyways speaking of grey hair, my mom is a retired beautician and I'm now spotting grey hair not many and not even noticiable to anyone but to meee but it drives me crazy so I keep running to my mom help help cover that up! hehe! Can't believe it before I know it I will be an old witch in a forest w/ long stringy hair!

// Dor_work / 475 weeks and 3 days ago

Blair Witch Project? I knew that witch seemed familiar.

// craeonics / 475 weeks and 2 days ago

Welll since it looks like I'm going to have to play tech today and fix my moms computer againnnn I'm going to have to make her work on fixing my hair today againnnn and convert me back out of witch mode...

// Doreen / 475 weeks and 2 days ago

Meanwhile I am going crazy with this school business. Have to work all week. Had to do stuff to prepare for class on wednesday, got to throw together a presentation for friday and mail it to the teachers today, tomorrow as said I have classes, thursday no school but a dinner from work and on friday I got classes most of the day.

Argh... All work and no play...

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

Take care of your business dutchy (jussss know I miss you!) hehe

Wellll, I do! I hate you!!!

Friday will be a historic day we move approx 400 patients into the new hospital over here I have to report for work at 6:00am! I'm just assisting the paramedics when they move the patients on wards and into elevators Argh! I'm not too happy about it but my Boss volunteered our whole program office, so I have too.

/me is not listening to anything just working as usual and enjoying some rainy cold weather...

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

You? Assisting? But you're not a nurse. What kind of madness is that.

Meanwhile, I just found out I read the wrong text on the assignment I did yesterday. No wonder the questions didn't make sense. God damnit, now I have to read the right text and answer the bloody questions again. And it's due tomorrow. Joy.

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe sillyyy wake up! Pay attention!

Apparently they are desperate or something and I better not break my nails! All they want is for us to direct and assist the paramedics when they come to move the patients so I'm just helping them and showing them where to go etc taking them to the elevators and giving directions from one hospital to the other one (which I get lost myself everytime I walk over there cuz it's too big) so most likely I'll be getting the paramedics lost w/ me! But they asked for it! They're gonna get it! hehe

The goal is to move approx 400 pts out on Fri and Sat but I'm not working on Saturday so I'm assisting on Friday.

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

I still don't understand why you torture yourself w/ school? oh boy...

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm gonna leave you alone so you can take care of your business and I'm not even going to look over here for you anymore! I mean it!

I'm not!

I'm not!

I'm not!

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

I start what I finish, so even though I am long annoyed with this study, I will finish it. And that BA-certificate (or is it BLit?) that awaits me is tempting as well ofcourse. Then again, I already have a MSc, so it adds nothing. And as anyone who earned (not bought) a serious degree can tell you titles are meaningless anyway.

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

Anyway, I redid the assignment. Did some speed reading and rewrote a quarter of the report. Time to count sheep.

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

I can't help it! I still have to come back looking for you! I would have to disagree some ppl go nuts over their titles one time I addressed a Doctor via email by his last name only and he corrected me about his Dr. MD. bla bla bla (I could care less cuz everyone is the same in my book all flesh and blood) but some ppl really think a piece of paper makes them another breed or something. But you have to follow out whatever goals you make in life no matter what they are...

Anyways g'night dutchy I think you were at sheep #259

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 6 days ago

I sleep like a rock, so I don't know.

And argh, I completely misinterpreted what I had to do for the presentation I have to give friday. This is going to be fun.

// crae_work / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

You have plenty of time relaxxx, you can do it w/ no problem. (leave work a couple of hrs earlier if you can and go home and concentrate on it)

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

Close that browser window and get your behind to your studies!!!

/me is listening to some boring Politic stuff. Everybody is shocked cuz we now finally have a black President? Zzzzzz

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

Oh wait you have classes today!? I forgot! I bet your staring out the window right now! well you better get to your presentation for Friday when you get your schoolboy behind back home again! hehe

I know you'll do good...

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

I bet you didn't vote, as usual. But then again, if you have to register to vote I don't know if I would either. How silly is that? It's almost as if they don't want you to vote. Why not just send everyone over eightteen a voting card?

Anyway, one of the teachers just noted that I misinterpreted things and asked me for a addendum. Bloody hell, I thought I had one night (what's left of it) of peace and quiet this week. Grrr...

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

No dutchy I didn't vote (you know me too well) hehe

cuz then when you register to vote they call you for Jury Duty and I don't like to do either one of them vote or go be on a jury and have to be "forced to judge someone" You would not believe how many ppl get upset at me when I won't vote (they actually get furious w/ me, but I could care less what other ppl think)

Anyways, I'm happy your teacher gave you the chance to do the addendum he or she could have just said "Well that's your tough luck you keep looking out that window and don't pay attention in class!" hehe!

You're probably just tired having to keep w/ work and school (I'm sure that's not an easy task) get your stuff done and get to bed! g'night dutchy...

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

Juries are just as stupid as having to register to vote. Hmm, do I see a trend here?

This week comes straight out of hell. I'll be glad when it's over. Tomorrow we're going to have dinner somewhere with work. Already checked the menu of the restaurant and ofcourse they picked one that does not serve decent red meat. Grr...

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

What is it w/ your work? They seem to be a bunch of sushi lovers!?

/me goes apply for a job at your work! Just remember to stay away from the "white" fish and go for the ruby red tuna (Maguro)

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

No, it's not sushi, but it's a very strange menu they have. Every item has something I don't like.

// crae_work / 474 weeks and 5 days ago

Thennnnn don't go...

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 4 days ago

/me comes talk to you whilst you're eating gross food cuzzzzz you're tooooo polite to say the word "No!"

I just spotted your bandwidth mungers on my screenshots. hehe!

Sorry dutchy, like I said I really did not know that a screenshot used bandwidth cuz I thought only when ppl "download" a .zip it uses bandwidth.

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 4 days ago

Those four or so images used up about a third of the bandwidth we used last month. We actually went over our limit and the account got disabled.

Food was so so. But so will I, I will survive, etcetera.

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 4 days ago

Hmmm me looks at clock wellll it must not have been that bad!

Anyways, I've been keeping an eye on the d/l's those are very light so I'll be careful from now on...

Whoa, good stuff on TV:

Oh no, what kind of madness is this? First they fuck up Guru Josh and know some heretic has mixed Kelis' Milkshake with Joe Smooth's Promised Land. There is no originality in this world no more...

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 2 days ago

Kelis and Joe Smooth? (if I remember that Promised Land correctly that's not even mixable!)

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 2 days ago

It sure as hell didn't blend well. Anyway, middle of the night and I still need to cook dinner.

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 2 days ago

/me tosses you some of my left over tofu...

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 2 days ago

Tofu is yuck.

Here's the heresy I was talking about: [link]

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 1 day ago

And the Guru Josh thing. First the original, one of the classics of house music, including the bad hairdo (ask panda, he was probably there): [link]

Now compare that to the current remix: [link]

There's been a boat load of crap remixes of classic tunes coming out lately.

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 1 day ago

Ummmm at first my ears were totally confused but then once they finally settled down I actually liked it!? (the milkshake saved it)

As for that Guru Josh thing I never heard of it until you showed me that a while back (thats the one that has the monkey sounds in the bg at a certain part)

You need to check your ears out cuz that last one Infinity 2008 is good (plus there's no more monkey noises in it)

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 1 day ago

As for the tofu Mr. "I only eat red meat" It's only good at this one place I go to (otherwise tofu normally taste like invisible food)

// Doreen / 474 weeks and 1 day ago

Tofu tastes like sponge. It probably is made from sponge.

And those monkey noises are an integral aspect of that song. But I guess if you've never heard the original, the remix will appeal more as it has a distinct "modern" sound. The original song is deeply, deeply rooted in the late 80's soundwise.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: the washing machine

// craeonics / 474 weeks and 1 day ago

hehe it is not silly (It's one of the healthiest things you could eat)

And those monkey sounds are totally ridiculous, me goes cook some soup for my lil pains who are driving me crazy atm.

Healthy, eh? [link]

// crae_work / 474 weeks and 19 hours ago

Welll I think that "everything" needs ***balance*** and/or moderation (might be a better word) if you over do "anything" no matter what it is, it will be bad for you. Which includes: Food, Exercise, Stress, Sleep, Love (anything)

And though I'm gonna gross you out w/ more info then you need but that stuff about it messing w/ the female cycle (my menstrual cycle is like clock work almost down to the hour) It's all nonsense unless you're consuming everything tofu based such as substituting milk for soy, eating tons of Edamame, and not eating diff meats but "only eating tofu as a source of protein" (which I heard Demi Moore does) However, eating it like I do which is only on occasion and only in two forms Fried over steamed rice or as a meal where it is served raw (not fried) over a bed of a variety of mixed spring salad or vegetables. Or when I go out to eat sushi and they serve you a "small" bowl of edamame, but that's about it.

Other than that when I first tasted it I thought what in the world is this!? It's like eating invisible food! But you just need to find diff ways to enjoy things, you just don't stop cuz you try something one time and you don't like it.

Like sushi I hated it when I first tried it until I found what kind of sushi I like (which is totally limited) cuz I won't touch most diff kinds of sushi but I only like yellow tail and I love the ruby red tuna which they call Maguro (the younger the tuna the more tender and less fishy it taste) It's pure protein and it don't weigh you down so after you eat you feel content and almost energized whereas after eating meat you feel lazy and full (w/o energy) there's a huge difference.

Most ppl just go nuts over "everything" and they over do everything and they don't just pick and choose the best of what they like. But it's all about Balance in everything.

And this will conclude Doreen's healthy living lesson for today...

I was going to ask you how your presentation turned out schoolboy but I remember you said they takes weeks to grade?

Anyways, Holiday over here (of which I'm clueless which Holiday) other than it means no work! Hooray!!!!!

/me goes hit the gym to relaxxx and hit the malls to get some over do shopping done...

// Dor_no_work / 473 weeks and 6 days ago

The presentation was part of a class. The reaction was that I was calm and seemed to know what I was talking about, but that I perhaps should be a bit less "nonchalant".

That word gets used a lot when people rate my performance and I still don't know what exactly is meant by that. Maybe it has something to do with me not writing down and memorising presentations, but more or less improvising them (I never know what I'm going to say until I say it).

// crae_work / 473 weeks and 6 days ago

Don't you get nervous? I mean it sounds as if you go totally unprepared? Not a good way to try and do a "stand up" presentation, I'd be a nervous wreck! But then again I wouldn't do it as I told you my teachers had to give me an "F" cuz I refused to stand up in front of the class to be observed and graded by my "performance" just to please them. (It feels totally ridiculous and cuz I told you I'm painfully shy)

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 6 days ago

A nonchalant person is not likely to become warm or heated about anything, a fact that is underscored by the etymology of the word nonchalant. It stems from Old French, where it was formed from the negative prefix non- plus chalant, the present participle of the verb chaloir, "to be concerned." This in turn came from the Latin word calre, which from its concrete sense "to be hot or warm" developed the figurative sense "to be roused or fired with hope, zeal, or anger." French formed a noun nonchalance from the adjective nonchalant that was borrowed into English by 1678; the adjective itself was borrowed later, as it is not attested for another half-century.

*****

Hmmm so what your teachers are trying to say to you is that you need to be "concerned" and be more prepared and have more Zeal in your presentations not sleep walk through them sillyyyy! (If I were you I just simply would not do them)

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 6 days ago

Sounds like an apt description of me. Pfft, I'll sleepwalk through those silly presentations. If you are informed about the subject and more or less know what you want to say and in what order, presentations can easily be done by improvising.

It's so lame when people write a speech and memorise it (or worse: read it aloud). The written word is quite different from the spoken word, so those shouldn't be mixed.

Got another presentation on friday. Joy.

// crae_work / 473 weeks and 6 days ago

Yes true, but what "they" the teachers wants is to see a "Performance" that is what they are grading you on when you stand up and give a presentation, not really so much of what you know about the subject but how well you "Preform" or a better word "Present" what you know.

So they expect you to act animated as you're talking about the subject. I'm not an actor, so I never would do it, I told them I would hand in my "written" but I would not do any performance for anyone. Apparently they did not like me making my own rules so I always got an F (though I actually think I knew more about the subjects then most of the actors/performers I watched doing their presentations)

Anyways, goodluck dutchy your lucky I ain't sitting in the class watching you I'd be making you mess up! hehe!

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 5 days ago

You probably just need to move your hands alittle bit more and look around at the other students and not be so relaxed and still but just be more "animated" that's what it sounds like to me from what you're saying...

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 5 days ago

Here's what a good presentation is:

1. Someone who knows the subject well (you've got that down)

2. Someone who is relaxed while speaking (you've apparently got that down too well)

3. Someone who speaks about the subject the right amount of time (not too short not too longggg)

What you need to do is:

1. Be more animated.

2. Walk around and move your hands as you talk.

3. Look at the teacher and students in their eyes as you speak.

4. Change the tone/pitch of your voice as you speak.

A good presenter captures the teacher and students by animation and outwardly stimulation "not" just talking (that can put ppl to sleep) so you need to really "act out" the subject.

Just don't do flips or jump through hoops for them. hehe

Like I said I ain't no actor and I don't like to stimulate anyone cuz then they stare at you! hehe (I hate spotlights)

But that is what "you" need to do if you want to Ace your presentation...

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 5 days ago

You forget that I am lazy. I can pass any presentation without too much effort, so that's exactly what I do.

// craeonics / 473 weeks and 5 days ago

You make me do alllll that typing for nothing! Yeah you are a lazy bunny! hehe

I mean a Sloth!

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 5 days ago

I was trying to find a slow moving Sloth and found this vid sooooo cute!!! OMG!!!

[link]

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 5 days ago

I think I've got matching nails. /me goes round up material for tomorrow's presentation

// craeonics / 473 weeks and 4 days ago

Get your stuff done and don't be sooo nonchalant my sloth!

Goodluck...

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 4 days ago

When you get a chance schoolboy check out the Cinematic Trailer at:

[link]

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 4 days ago

Oh no, I'm going to stay far away from World of WarCraft. I heard Wrath of the Lich King is out, so you'll probably be going into hiding for the coming few weeks.

// craeonics / 473 weeks and 4 days ago

Not sure yet, but my mom said my brother called her and told her to go sneak and buy him the upgrade cuz he's coming this weekend again and he don't want his wife to know... hehe!

So now I need to buy the upgrade.

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 3 days ago

I think she said he will be coming again tomorrow so I'll most likely be checking it out. Warhammer was a waste I played it 1 time and got bored w/ the lag and bugs in that game.

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 3 days ago

Dutchy it feels so weird here today, though all the patients have been moved out we are left behind (they are going to move us to a lower floor in a few weeks and lockdown all the upper ones) but there's actually an echo throughout all the hospital floors. hehe!

(but you can almost feel all the spirits floating around the wards) cuz it's such an ancient old building)

We practically have the whole place to ourselves!!!

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 3 days ago

Hmm you should be standing up snoring infront of the class about now I guess and I wish I was there to make funny faces at you and mess you up! Hope it went well today/tonight...

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 3 days ago

Pfft, that presentation was a piece of cake. Anyway, watch out for ghosts in your haunted hospital.

// craeonics / 473 weeks and 2 days ago

Good then it sound like it went well for you schoolboy...

Yeah ghosts and rats! the place looked like the after math of the great exodus it looked and felt unreal. Anyways dutchy I think I am going to go cast some evil spells for a while. (the evil ghost in World of Warcraft look better)

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 2 days ago

Welll I can't even believe this but the spells whipping up outside are more fierce then in WOW atm (another fire chasing me) so if I disappear for a while dutchy I'm evacuating to my Moms. Hell came out of nowhere and fires are being blown all over (just some exciting news for you) hehe!

Later gator...

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 2 days ago

/me sends some of the autumn rain over to quell the flames

// craeonics / 473 weeks and 2 days ago

Well I hope it hurries up and gets over here! Dutchy I have no clue how in the world mere human beings were able to get a grip on this fire, I'm not exaggerating when I say it was like Hell on earth over here and I've never in my life ever felt anything like this before the sky was black at noon and the sun was blood red behind the black clouds when it would peek out for a moment (totally frightening) but things feel as if they are calming down though the fires are not out but only semi-contained...

// Doreen / 473 weeks and 10 hours ago

If your house burns down I guess you'll be living under a bridge a couple of years earlier than planned.

// crae_evil / 472 weeks and 6 days ago

/me smacks the hell out of you! (nope I'd be back at my mommy's house!) hehe!

Everything is fine. (I was one of the lucky ones I know alot of ppl that were not that lucky)

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 6 days ago

We were watching the flames on the hill right by where we live so we could walk over to the fire and could not breath it was so bad dutchy but it seemed to be held back by an invisible wall so we were Blessed...

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 6 days ago

The only big fires I've ever been close to are bonfires on New Year. The heat is so intense it's almost unbearable to get close. I can imagine the fires that ravaged your area were way more intense.

Anyway, good thing nothing happened. Let's hope your stuff has remained unscathed by the flames and the smoke.

// craeonics / 472 weeks and 6 days ago

Oh dutchy it was pretty bad and I don't even know how to put it into words.

I've seen alot of fires living in California but nothing can came close to what happened. The heat alone was so intense it felt like being in Hell, and again I'm not exaggerating though it may sound like it. We had three diff fires (one was "walking distance" from where I live) and I have never been so scared in my life, we seen the fire, felt it and we had no oxygen in the air and there was no sky! As you know I can smell someone smoking a cigarette a block away and it takes my breath away plus I've got two lil wheezers so we got sick w/ the smoke alone.

Some of the High schools and other schools around the corner from me are currently being used for Shelters alot of ppl lost their homes and apts etc. really bad...

I don't really know how we were not one of them except we must be truly Blessed. We are still physically sick from the air but things are calming down "alot" we can see the sky and the temps have dropped and the fires are contained.

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 5 days ago

Blessed has nothing to do with it. Think competent firemen and a bit of luck.

// craeonics / 472 weeks and 5 days ago

I'll take the word Blessed over luck anytime. hehe

I still don't know how those firemen got that fire under control I thought to myself earthquakes haven't taken California down and now a fire is going to take us out? This is rediculous.

/me is listening to the sounds of normalcy...

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 5 days ago

Seems to be an annual thing, so better get ready for next year.

// crae_evil / 472 weeks and 5 days ago

You are so mean! But true, according to what they are saying since we are getting less and less rain there is no more "fire season" we can expect fires all year round. The fires were like explosions and/or fireballs which I don't know if it was from the wind or from the dry stuff it was burning? (cuz I never seen anything like it before) anyways it's over I'm trying not to think about it.

How are you doing Mr. Snoring in front of the classroom! Are you done w/ those ridiculous presentations yet?

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 5 days ago

Actually your probably snoring right now! (this day went by too fast)

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 5 days ago

Got another presentation next week where I am to present the findings and my conclusions of my project. I haven't found jack shit yet, because this is planned way too soon, so this is going to be interesting.

I'd rather watch fireballs flaring and lighting up the sky.

// crae_work / 472 weeks and 5 days ago

No you wouldn't (trust me it wasn't fun) but since I see the word "conclusions" hopefully it's your last one (or atleast last one for a while) schoolboy...

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

I wish. After that, I still have to write the bloody report, then exams in December and January and finally some peace and quiet until it starts again in February.

// craeonics / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

And by the time you waste finishing all that stuff you should have a piece of paper in your coffin w/ you that states and verifies what a smart guy you are. hehe!

// Dor_evil / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

Relaxxx schoolboy I'm playing around I do realize (late of course) the importance of a good education. Just that I see alot of ppl that have degrees and stuff and they can barely get a job at McDonalds w/ their important papers that of course the College Systems swindled thousands of dollars for.

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

Note that I'm not going to do anything with this degree (by the time I get it). In essence, it's a big waste of time. But hey, it builds character. Oh, and it's quite amusing to see people stutter their way through presentations.

// craeonics / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe dutchyyy...

Actually that's probably the most benefit anyone "really" gets out of getting a degree is that it most likely is healthy for your mind.

/me is listening to some stupid soap opera in the bg while I work which is making me cry!

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

Midnight has passed and I still have to cook. I think I'll just eat some bread and save the cooking for tomorrow.

/listen

// craeonics / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

That's why I put cheese on my bread.

// crae_zzz / 472 weeks and 4 days ago

/me is listening to total silence *spooky* and I'm off to bed you wise guy...

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 2 days ago

/me rolls out of bed

Let's see, what's on the schedule today:

- Chores (groceries, washing, etcetera).

- Read boring books for my presentation on Friday.

Ergo, same old shit. No time to play again.

// craeonics / 472 weeks and 1 day ago

I like to torture myself so I'm taking this whole week off work cuz I invited my entire family over for Thanksgiving this week. Now I'm like what did I do? and do I need to cook two Turkeys or what?

But it will be my last time, I just want to gather the whole gang in one spot one more time since some of my family had a rough year. My sister separated and moved (and she is gonna kill me but I invited her Husband too!)

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 1 day ago

"Oh sis, I invited your ex as well. Maybe you can kiss and make up". I predict fireworks.

This track is awesome, by the way.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: FB [Force] - Graablick blew hun Vaer [My Own Wolf: a New Approach to Ulver, CD1, 10]

// craeonics / 472 weeks and 1 day ago

I don't care, my sister is way too wild (and this guy was good for her) and he still loves her and will do anything for her. I've spoken to him, so I'm going to try. I fear nothing! (but I do plan on removing all sharp objects from grabbing distance around her)

Anyways it's my last: "everyone come over to my place" so it might as well be a bang!

/me goes cut through this thick fog outside and go hit the gym...

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 1 day ago

Exquisite tunes here:

Daddy Yankee ft. NORE - Gasolina (Remixxx)

(Great tune to scrub the floor to)

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 12 hours ago

I know that one. It is indeed excellent.

// craeonics / 472 weeks and 10 hours ago

Gino is listening to something that sounds worser than Burzum (if you can imagine that!)

I bet you will love it though (I had to get the links from him)

[link]

And this nextone one makes my skin crawl!

[link]

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 8 hours ago

If I didn't know my son and that he "is" mentally grounded this would concern me but as of now all it does is make my skin crawl... hehe

// Doreen / 472 weeks and 8 hours ago

Satyricon is more akin to Dimmu Borgir than Burzum. It's still on my stuff to check out list. I'm more into atmospheric stuff these days though: Striborg, Xasthur, Vinterriket and so on.

But I somehow doubt I should check those vids with sound on here at work.

// crae_work / 472 weeks and 21 minutes ago

Nope not a good idea to check those vids out at work. hehe

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 6 days ago

Hmm, that Satyricon tune needs more body, but the "demons in the forest" levels are high enough for me, so it moves up a notch on the "stuff to check out" pile. Song also sound vaguely familiar, so it is a bit generic.

The second one proves that at least half the Black Metallers are emo farmboys. Ridiculous. Gorgoroth sounds good though.

// craeonics / 471 weeks and 6 days ago

They both sound like evil demons to me and make my skin crawl *shivers*

Don't have a clue what you guys or anyone else for that matter sees in that stuff.

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 6 days ago

It's the evil vibe that does it for me.

Meanwhile, /me's been busy typing the conclusion I have to present on Friday and have to mail to the teachers today. How bizarre is it that I'm writing the conclusion before the rest of the paper is done?

// craeonics / 471 weeks and 6 days ago

Not bizarre at all I always know the conclusion before the ending. hehe

(alright not always but most of the time)

Anyways g'luck on that schoolboy and remember on Friday to be alil more animated up there in front of the class you lazy sloth!

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 6 days ago

I'd say the problem is that I'm too animated compared to the rest of those stuttering monkeys. Although there's one that does his presentation like he's preaching in church. Very funny to see.

// crae_work / 471 weeks and 6 days ago

Really? From what you said I literally pictured you in a monotone voice just standing there putting everyone to sleep. hehe

Wellll that isss what it sounded like to me when you said what the teacher said.

Anyways I'm so glad I don't have to go through it, Gino is giving presentations right now as well (though he's half your age for crying out loud) and thank God he ain't anything like me (he's not shy at all) so he's been doing good on them.

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 5 days ago

It's easy. You just open your mouth and stuff comes out. Especially if you know what you're talking about. I don't see why people stress over these things.

// craeonics / 471 weeks and 5 days ago

Cuz eyeballs feel like piercing needles (like you're somebodies dinner or dessert) anyways dutchy the rain you sent last week has finally arrived and just in time for Thanksgiving which means I won't have to cook in a kitchen during 105 degrees temps! Normally we have alot of sun around this time so this feels excellente!

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 5 days ago

Hey, it had to cross the ocean and then all the way over land. So it was quite a trip.

// craeonics / 471 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe! whatever it was me is happy it got here I was in Heaven last night windows open and wind and rain blowing in all night (everything was damp in the morning) but hey who knows how many years it might be before we get more rain like this. It was a storm. I think they said we might have one more day of it and that's it...

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 5 days ago

/me goes get into Thanksgiving gear, do good on your presentation schoolboy...

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 5 days ago

And Friday is upon us soooo how did it go schoolboy?

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 3 days ago

Improvised as usual. Forgot half of what I wanted to say, again as usual. Feedback was, and I quote: "good presentation today". As long as I get away with it, I'll just continue improvising.

// craeonics / 471 weeks and 3 days ago

Good! Though maybe you should have atleast one index card that you could jot key things down on (just to glance at) that you know you'll forget but are important?

/me shuts now up cuz obviously you know what you're doing...

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 3 days ago

Ummm shuts now up = shuts up now (my fingers are dyslexic?)

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 3 days ago

Trouble with cheat sheets like that is that you "umm, what more is there to tell" during your presentation and have to peek at the card. Anyway, to me it seems like I'm stuttering like crazy, but for some reason the audience doesn't seem to notice.

// craeonics / 471 weeks and 2 days ago

Cheating is when something is not allowed but index cards (flash cards) are totally allowed.

And the proper way to use them is to use (1) and jot down key words to "glance" at so that when you look at the "word" you remember the whole subject.

The wrong way to use them is when you carry like 50 of them up in front of the class and then read off each one like you're reading a story book to other children...

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 2 days ago

Ah, but that would spoil the fun.

// craeonics / 471 weeks and 2 days ago

Those things are not fun (you're just crazy)

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 2 days ago

When I just started studying (previous university) I took things seriously. First exam I really studied. Not that hard, just the usual. Read the book, rehearsed to see what I knew. And I aced it.

That made me think: if I can ace an exam with not too much effort, how far can I get with minimal effort. Ever since then my exam preparations consist of reading the book the day before the exam.

With this second study it's even worse. Since I'm not going to do anything with it anyway, I'm treating it like some kind of game. Granted, it sucks up a lot of time (even with minimal effort), but compared to all those kids who want to make their career out of things, I'm one mean slacker.

// craeonics / 471 weeks and 2 days ago

It really depends on the teacher alot of them are merely sitting there for the required hours just to obtain their paycheck and guess what, if that's all they are there for and you show up then that means you're gonna ace that class cuz all you really need to do is pay for your chair in that class.

Really not much to it pay the bill, show up, put alil effort and 9 X's out of 10 you will get your paper. But if you ever get a real teacher that is there for more than his/her paycheck I can guarantee you that even "you" will earn your paper at the end of his/her class "and" walk away having learned something you won't easily forget.

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 2 days ago

Dutchy sorry you might get irritated by me putting my nose where it don't belong but it really bugs me that you are doing this, I mean why are you treating it like a game? If so, you really are wasting time, big time! You are way too smart to be doing this, you need a teacher that can challenge you cuz it sounds to me as if you're bored and these teachers are not doing their job. Yes being in school is healthy for your mind but when you have a great mind you need to challenge it and you're not doing that.

You should bump up your classes and really really check into not only some new class choices but check the teachers out to see if they are just vegetables or "real" teachers!

// Doreen / 471 weeks and 2 days ago

Still no vacant rooms?

;P

// Blowman / 471 weeks and 2 days ago

It is a game, because I'm completely through with studying, so all I care about at the moment is finishing it. The only reason I went back is to learn Sumerian, since there aren't any books on that subject. I could have just taken classes on that and then be done with it, but that's not my style. So I have to ride out the rest of the classes as well.

Couple of year to go still, I think.

The excitement is just overwhelming!

The best version of Café del Mar is either the original [link], or (even better) the Marco V remix [link] (or is that the same one you linked to? These versions seem a bit mixed up). The build-up is slow but works so much better that way

// craeonics / 470 weeks and 9 hours ago

I think those are the same ones dutchy...

(strange though cuz I don't hear any sound, unless my machine is acting up)

// Doreen / 470 weeks and 5 hours ago

Hmmm wait actually that is not the same (I mean the vid) but I don't hear any sound? what is suddenly up w/ my speakers *sigh*

// Doreen / 470 weeks and 5 hours ago

I think I'm tired or something cuz I thought I seen something different but that looks the same. However my speakers decided to turn off so I don't hear a thing, me goes reboot...

// Doreen / 470 weeks and 5 hours ago

Okay I got my sound back (that was weird) and they are all different. But it does not matter how many different ways you listen to that song they are all excellent, I don't think it's possible to hear that song any which way and not love it...

Now get your lazy behind up and get to work!

// Doreen / 470 weeks and 5 hours ago

Oh boy I don't know about you dutchy but I totally despise Jingle Bells tunes and right now it's everywhere on TV, in the Malls at work everywhere! OMG gross...

And then this Thursday I have to attend a Christmas Luncheon for work and they chose an Italian restaurant of all places Ummm hello I can eat that any day of the week I would like something different!? *sigh*

// Dor_Scrooge / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

No Christmas dinner at work here. Instead there's a New Year dinner somewhere in January.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm not looking forward to it but my Boss said I can switch my days off and take Friday off (well not off but work from home on Friday instead) if I come to this event on Thursday and Sammy's off of school on Friday so it works out well I guess, but I'm not into Christmas party type things or these Luncheons they have. Yesss me is boring! hehe

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

oh great guess what is on...

/me is listening to some commercial on TV atm "We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happyyyy New Year! OMG help meeee!!!

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

I think my family wants to come over here for Christmas and expect me to make dinner. I'll just pretend I didn't hear them.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe! Do it dutchy, do it for them...

I did Thanksgiving over here and I will "not" be doing Christmas that is for sures! It took me 3 days to clean up the mess but it was a total success everything went well (atleast for them for me it was alot of work! but I was content to see everyone together and happy)

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

Anyways you got that table that you can pull out for them! (that's cool I had everyone eating everywhere all over the place) cuz my table is small.

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

Do it you lazy bunny, you won't regret it (plus your mom and dad deserve it)

Goedenacht...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

They can eat here, but I'm not going to do the cooking.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 6 days ago

I jussss cannot mind my own business can I? hehe

So what! I think after all your Dad and Mom did for you helping you get moved into your pad you should actually cook for them and serve them in your new pad for the first Christmas! Make a quick dinner not everything cooked hassss to be too complicated, since I think they would appreciate the thought you tried you lazy bunny!!! Argh!

okay I feel better I got that off my chest...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

And furthermore don't evennn expect me to recommend you to go find yourself some dutch girl w/ blond braids and pointy wooden shoes eating some cheese to do it for you!

Cuz that won't count! you need to do it w/ your own hands as a labor of love for them! hehe

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

Jeez, got to do everything by myself...

* craeonics is listening to: Kaiser Chiefs - Every day I love you less and less

Dutchy didn't you move in right before Christmas last year I can't remember? Anyways this is most likely your real first Christmas there cuz you were probably not settled in for the last one.

And yesss I know I need to mind my own business but since I seen you in action making an instant B-day cake I obviously know you could make your Dad and Mom some Frozen food atleast! hehe! You cannnn cook right?

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

Moved in around this time last year. Time goes by fast. I can cook, but my diet is mostly limited to meat and, err, meat. Parents expect all kinds of vegetables and salads. So they can do the cooking and I'll help.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

I can't believe it's been a year already? unreal...

I hope you do it dutchy give them some reward sheesh! And you should do the vegetables and salads too and surprise them (just don't make them faint)

/me just got back from being tortured w/ back to back jingle bells tunes for over an hour at the nail salon (totally rediculous these girls don't listen to Petey Pablo at all)

and I'm going to wash that stuff out real quick w/ some:

Petey Pablo - Freek a Leek

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

* Doreen breaks a nail

Oh no! Quick, back to the saloon.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

I don't know how you mom is but when my mom came over for Thanksgiving I had to practically tie her up to the couch to keep her from trying to help me serve everyone, she doesn't know how to let someone serve her! It was rediculous and she got me upset! hehe

But after it was over she kept calling me up telling me how much she enjoyed it and trying to say Thank you...

My point is if you invite your parents over you need to tie the two of them up on the couch and "serve" them. It's one day out of the year they will remember you doing that for them (you can do that for all the years they've served you)

I'm done, I'll quit, I promise...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

I better not break one! (they look really good right now) should last me exactly 2 days at the most...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

oh brother you = your up there I reallyyyy hate when I go to type your and it comes out you...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 5 days ago

It's the nails. I'll have to see how things turn out at Christmas. For now I'll just pretend to have amnesia.

/me is listening to a Tom Cruise interview and I almost fainted when I turned around to look at the TV and seen his house...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

Ohhh dutchy lets see how she pulled this off.

[link]

I remember how hard it was to find her videos before, now they're easy to find (well everything is easy to find now w/ YouTube)

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

They're with Century Media nowadays and that's one of the bigger metal labels. But this version really doesn't cut it. Had to shake heaven and earth to find the original, because there are like a thousand mixes up there, but here's Depeche Mode's original: [link]

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

You know what dutchy I get lost in YouTube there's groups I've listened to for years and had no idea what they look like until I checked them out on YouTube (everything is there!)

/me goes check out your link...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

Ummm that is just nuts? Is that the original video to that song dutchy cuz I've never seen that before?

Some videos you watch them and they confuse you even more than the stupid lyrics! hehe

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

Okay that is just completely crazy what were they thinking the guy is walking around to different places in a Kings costume carrying a lawn chair! What does that have to do w/ the song?

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

By the way I was checking this one out you had posted a while back and I didn't even recognize it as Ulver, pretty good cept a few parts where the usual devil jumps out of the closet like at the begining where it's melow city and then surprise surprise. (but I'm usually more guarded now when I check out your stuff) hehe

Goedenacht you dutchyyy...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

This one: [link]

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

Hey you can sleep I'll keep talking! hehe

My favoritest Ulver tune off that CD I bought remember:

[link]

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

Extremely diverse: [link]

Just feel like annoying you go ahead and go back to sleep I'll stop now... hehe

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

What in the world! [link]

(sorry last one!)

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 3 days ago

Ack, Doreenosis. In order of posts:

1) Yes, that's the original video to Enjoy the Silence. Not much weirder than that of Café del Mar though.

2) That Ulver tune comes from a remix CD. It's a mix by FB [Force] and definitely the best track on the (two disc) album (although it sounds like crap on my laptop due to lack of bass speakers). The whole album can be downloaded for free (legit), by the way.

3) Jesus, I'm glad they got past that phase. Nice quote from Ulver on this: "Garm has since remarked that Kveldssanger was an 'immature attempt at making a classical album', later adding that the performance was immature, yet the content is strong when their youth at the time is taken into account."

4) That loud one was sort of a going away thing. Or: let's make one really noisy record and then we'll switch to more atmospheric, electronic tunes for a while.

5) And that's almost their modern sound. It has finally matured on their last album: [link]

Suffice to say I have an almost complete Ulver discography. I blindly buy every record they release.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 2 days ago

I seen that last link too last night when I decided to check everything Ulver out last night and I kept thinking what in world? Do they even know what sound they want to stand for?

That last one sounds like some Churchy (cuz I thought I heard some old church organ) then spacey, a dash of Asian notes and some monkish vocals that sometimes sounded like Donny Osmond ack!!! (which I dispise) but I do love some of their old Melodic Atmospheric Folk tunes, they reallyyy have traveled all over the map though! I was surprised, you think each sound/track is a diff band.

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 2 days ago

The journey would be something like: 1) black metal with folk influences ('94); 2) folk ('95); 3) black ('97); 4) conceptual ('98); 5) atmospheric/electronic/glitch ('00); and finally their current sound ('07).

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 2 days ago

What is it? Is it that they can't seem to find their sound? Or some kind of marketing strategy to catch the wallets of all kinds of listeners? They are very unusual...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 2 days ago

Meanwhile /me is wondering when we'll get days that last more than 24 hours. Got an exam on wednesday (probably bitched about that before). Don't know if I can finish reading the book before that, seeing that I have to work all week. And then I have to hand in my paper on friday and I'm definitely not going to get that done.

Fortunately, I've got two weeks off next week, so I can finally relax.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 16 hours ago

If we had days that were 48 hours it still would never be enough...

Since you're such a book worm you probably need to take up some kind of speed reading class (which is what I do when I "have to" read I read 3 words off a page and then guess what the book was about)

Dutchy we have the best stormy weather lately (I can't even remember how long it's been since we've had this kind of stormy rain!) which = I'm completely paralyzed from it and in Heaven!

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 11 hours ago

Speed reading only works when the book is well written. I can speed read novels, but unfortunately scientific authors tend to be very poor writers and reading that stuff is like walking through mud. Keep getting sucked back.

Anyway, with temperatures like this, we might just get a White Christmas.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 8 hours ago

I forgot the exact technique but it has to do w/ grabbing only a few words per paragraph I think (which is what I do naturally anyways)

It is unreal on this end dutchy it's pouring rain and the streets are completely flooded.

/me snatches your blanket and goes watch a flick...

// Doreen / 469 weeks and 6 hours ago

It has to do with grabbing the first and last few words of each paragraph. However, this assumes the paragraphs are well structured: either the beginning or the end should contain the core of what is said and the rest is fluff.

The book I need to read for my exam on the other hand is definitely not well structured and contains all kinds of bogus reasoning which I'm supposed to remember and able to reproduce and criticise. Thing is, bogus reasoning doesn't register with me because it's bull.

// craeonics / 469 weeks and 28 minutes ago

It sounds like a horrible book (books are hard enough to read but bad ones are torturous)

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 6 days ago

Finished. And it was indeed dreadful, author was completely entangled in his own delusions. I'm going to have to fight the urge tomorrow to answer questions like "what is the author trying to say when he does X?" with "nothing, he's full of crap".

// craeonics / 468 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe you schoolboy! Just do not answer w/ what you really think or you'll fail that exam tomorrow for sures! Goodluck tomorrow dutchy...

/me goes back to my soap opera (I'm hooked now on this stupid soap, and I don't even know why all it does is make me cry!)

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 6 days ago

Besides the fact this has got to be the worsest acting I have ever seen in my life! (so I don't know why it makes me cry!)

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 6 days ago

/me comes here for a lil peace and quiet, though your snoring is annoying me but your lil cyber nephew Sammy just had his 12th B-day and he wanted that Guitar Heros (but the one w/ the drums) so guess what I'm listening to? Oh boy... *sigh*

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 6 days ago

Sooo what happened schoolboy? Did you bite your tongue and pass that exam or what?

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 5 days ago

Guitar Hero rocks. And that exam consisted mostly of multiple choice/guess questions, so that should be doable.

// craeonics / 468 weeks and 5 days ago

Super easy then, good for you...

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 4 days ago

Crazy weather dutchy we were in the 30's this morning, my car was covered in white from frost, snow in the desert too. And today my hair is flying up in the air from electricty! So strange. hehe

Yesss nothing to you but over here we usually Barbeque for Christmas...

// craeonics / 468 weeks and 3 days ago

"Judging by" or "when you see" don't really mix. I must stop rewriting my sentences.

// craeonics / 468 weeks and 3 days ago

What causes that? I've never had that before (but then we are having freezing temps) very annoying hair flying up all over the place all day (made it hard to work)

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 3 days ago

Apparently it has something to do with the hair being too dry. How that ties in with freezing, I don't know. Weird stuff.

// craeonics / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

What do you mean you don't know? I run to you for all my answers! hehe

But it was strange though I felt some kind of electricity buzzing all around my head all day and even when I tied my hair it was flying up in the air.

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

If you make it wet, it'll quell the static.

Anyway, still busy with the bloody paper. Told the teachers there was no way I could finish it yesterday, so I got an extension. There goes Christmas.

// craeonics / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

It's too cold to wet it but I've just tied it up, and it helps alittle bit.

I'm glad you got that extension it's better than just tossing it to the teacher incomplete (why even bother for that matter)

Anyways, can you believe they managed to toss that crazy yodel tune into this I couldn't help but think of you when I heard it today. hehe

Check it out...

Xasthur - Possession = Freaky, spooky, scarey stuff!!! Argh!

(not good listening to this at night!)

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

Let me dig up the original for you: O-Zone - Dragostea din Tei [link], it's way better than that T.I./Rihanna crap.

Watch out for Xasthur, it'll grow on you.

Speaking of jodels, got two more candidates for you. First up Charly Lownoise and Mental Theo before they went soft: [link]. Bass drum is so loud I got to shut it down right now or my netbook will fall apart.

And contestant number two is actually from the seventies. Focus with Hocus Pocus: [link]. The only thing not out of tune in this live recording is the organ, but it still rocks so bad.

// craeonics / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

Firstly that Xasthur will neverrr grow on me cuz it actually scares me! As for the yodel one, I watched that entire vid on that link you dropped up there and I liked it! cuz in the past I've only heard a very small part of that tune which always seems to get stuck in my head and I hear it all day long after I listen to just a small clip of it (which means since I watched that whole video I'm gonna dream that yodel song all night long thank you very much!) argh!!!

/me goes check out your Smoothy Milkshake link, which I think you dropped that link not too long ago?

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

Yeah isn't that the one you said you didn't like or something? I like her original Milkshake tune more but this one was good too! I like it!

/me goes check out your jodel yodel links even though I know I will be doomed afterwards...

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

alright that first jodel is just completelyyy unbearable I cannot handle that, off to the second one now cuz I guess I like to torture myself...

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

oh dutchyyy that second one is just completely rediculous! I cannot even listen to that one all the way through (sorry but I just can't handle that at all) but I like this one you posted alot this one is the coolest yodel/jodel tune ever:

[link]

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 2 days ago

I'm glad they posted the lyrics, plus a translation, so I can finally see what's it all about. At the same time that was a hit (couple of years ago), an Italian cover was also in the charts [link], so there was some confusion as to what was the original.

Anyways you get busy schoolboy on that paper goodluck on it too!

/me tries to stop distracting you w/ nonsense (sorry)

Okay, then I think Gino will be having a few gifts to give out to his friends cuz my dresser is full of them...

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 1 day ago

I'll have to save jussss one though as a sentimental tek thingie for when we are both retired and still listening to some ancient tunes. hehe

I have them in those white envelopes but I hate to see them all just sitting there so I guess I'll give the rest out. Gino's friends like them everytime they see them on him they want to buy one but I can't see selling them to his friends.

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 10 hours ago

A wise decision. My uncle: "my internet is dead". I switch on his machine, fire up a browser. Firewall starts nagging, so I click "shut the fuck up and let me surf" and voilà, the Interwebs is back.

Next up, "I took five thousand pictures, but I can't get them on my computer". Grab the camera, hook up the cable and lo and behold, Vista starts importing all by itself.

Sometimes I really don't know what people are doing.

Ofcourse, my uncle doesn't actually use his computer, norhis laptop. He just likes to brag about it. "Yeah, I bought a laptop and it was very, very expensive. The salesman told me it's the best laptop there is!".

I'm so zapped by my day I cannot remember the other song that this one sounds like? Umm me goes poke around in my files and see if I can find it. (cuz now it's driving me crazy)

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 7 hours ago

Argh! I can't find it but it was some tune from Prodigy? Or atleast my ears are thinking I heard some Prodigy in that Charly tune...

Anyways I can totally relate about being a help desk for the family they drive me insane! my Mom constantly calls me up to go run over to her house to fix my step Dad's machine and when I go to fix his, she says well can you look at mine I'm having problems too, all my buttons on top of my browser bar have all disappeared (her nav buttons etc) then when I get done getting all their lil things fixed the phone rings and my mom says your sister is on the phone she wants to talk to you, I go to the phone and it's "Hi sis I heard you were coming over this way to fix moms computer and I hate to bother you but when you get done fixing her machine can you come swing by my house I keep getting pop ups all over the place and they won't stop and my computer freezes" argh!!!

My mom just bought some 100 dollar app that you can speak into a mic and completely run your computer and also it will type for you as you speak (cuz she is too lazy to type!) so now she's looking for me to read a book that is bigger than the Bible to figure out how to use it. Forget that, that is where I draw the line! I installed the program and got her mic and headset set up and ran out the door on that one! No way I'm reading that book!

I end up spending half my day off playing tech for them, gets me so upset then I feel bad cuz I get so mad at them!

// Doreen / 468 weeks and 7 hours ago

Thing is, they think you don't mind doing it. So the trick is to turn up all grumpy and swear and curse a lot.

// craeonics / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

No I can't so I kinda mumble and bite my tongue alot. And then I feel bad cuz I should help them w/ their problems w/ a happy heart (not this black heart I have)

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

Don't know what your tongue would think about that. Ken used to ask me "can you do this and this for me" all the time until I told him it's better to learn a man how to fish than to have to feed him all the time. Got to keep those brains active and learning all the time or they will wither away.

// craeonics / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

Well I'm alilll diff w/ my kids since my relationship w/ them is teacher, but when it comes to my parents I think I owe them since they both do so much for me I feel it's the least I can do (plus I'm not sure at their age they want to take a computer 101 class) hehe

As far as my sister it's just easier for me to just fix her machine then waste an extra 3 hours at her pad trying to teach her computer stuff so it's just easier to do whatever it is and run! But I just get so annoyed by it sometimes and have to regroup myself alot w/ them.

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

You should just learn to say "no". Repairing computers is no fun. You definitely don't want to work in that field.

Check Guru Josh going wild on the piano on this extended version of Infinity (sans monkey sounds): [link].

You might wonder what my obsession with that song is. It's simply that at that time certain radio DJ's would call it garbage and thus proved themselves the morons that everyone suspects most of 'em are. Way to keep touch of musical trends, boys.

// craeonics / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

oh God I cannot stop laughing at his monkey sounds!

/me goes try again to listen to this seriously now (I can't help it the monkey sounds sound funny to me! they distract me from the song)

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

Alright I have to admit that was pretty good (minus those stupid monkey sounds) hehe

now I'm going to see the other vid of him listed on the right to see what in the world is he doing when he is actually doing those stupid monkey sounds!

I suppose this is the guy right? If it weren't for you I'd have never heard of him cept the few times you've posted his tune...

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

Okay I found a better vid where I can see him better here: [link]

And ummm I'm speechless (I think he's weird)

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

/me bookmarks that one to show my brother cuz he's coming back for a visit w/ his family tomorrow (and I just know he will like that guy cuz he's weird)

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

Keep in mind that this is eightteen years ago we're talking about. Back when mullets were cool (can you imagine that) and MC Hammer wore the same baggy pants. For the record, I never had pants like that. I do have a fluorescent backpack from '89.

I know for a fact that our dearest panda was active in the rave scene around that time, so I suspect he looked like that. It's probably why he changed his name when he came to his senses.

And electronic music has possibly never been big over on your end, unless someone like Missy samples it or so.

// craeonics / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe! I bet you do own a pair of baggy pants! Seriously though I've never seen anything like that on this end. I think our time eras have been alilll more milder over here or something...

But then again who knows I've never really been a party girl so I could have missed out on alot, though some of my friends were quite wild I always tended to stay away when I felt they were getting alilll too crazy for me.

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

Shut up but yessss I had to go look up "mullet" and atleast I know or remember seeing that hair style (but I just never heard the name of it before) hehe

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

I do remember the Disco era and I also remember hiding under a rock until that pasted I thought that was theee most rediculous thing ever, some of my friends turned into Disco Bunnies and hopped away never to be seen again. And here we are now today and we have something very popular on TV (atleast on this end) called "Dancing w/ the stars" and that's all they do is pretend they are back in the Disco Days

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

[link]

Every learn how to dance shop you see has a line out the door everyone wants to dance disco now. hehe!

(OMG it's just disgustingly rediculous)

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

Is there anything that YouTube doesn't have? Tell me you wouldn't be caught dead dancing disco?

What is the thrill w/ this stuff?

[link]

// Doreen / 467 weeks and 6 days ago

/me clicks

...

/me makes a dash for the "close" button

The appeal is that it is a contest on national TV where every misguided soul can enter (and ofcourse won't get picked). And all the girls then look at their boyfriend and go "hey, let's go do that". Same with all the singing contests and what not.

Back to disco and why electronic music never made it in the US, there was a massive backlash against disco on your side of the ocean in the late 70's or early 80's, culminating in a massive disco record burning event in a stadium that got really out of hand. Hence the US went with Hair Metal and other types of guitar music and electronic music only survived in the club scene, while Europe went the New Wave/New Romantics route and electronic music never got suppressed.

In that light it's funny that the whole House music thing started in Chicago in the mid-80's.

Even he sings better than Katy Perry. Anyway, first experiences of 2009: not much different than 2008. Still no flying cars. Having no fireworks sucks. The fun is in setting it off, not looking at it. Grrr...

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 4 days ago

cool job (and no wonder their nails always look so good)

// Dor_secretary / 466 weeks and 3 days ago

Maybe there's a new career waiting for you.

Meanwhile, I've just concluded that Johnny Depp is an incredibly sucky Willy Wonka compared to Gene Wilder. And the Oompa Loompas sucked too.

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 3 days ago

You mean you actually watched that flick? (I won't waste my money on that one) and no new career, just answered a help! help! today that's all...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 3 days ago

I want to see this one! [link] I heard it was good it's apparently based off an old flick of which I never seen but the previews look good...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 3 days ago

Hmm well glancing over that review he makes it sound bad (but I don't trust reviews I have to see it for myself)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 3 days ago

I think I may have seen the original. Then again, maybe not. Remakes tend to be sucky most of the time, just like covers.

/me plays some tunes: [link] (wait for the bass to kick in at 1:15)

/me thinks this is a case where the remix beats the original: [link]

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

I absolutely love that tune 100% (been hearing it alot on this end too)

/me goes check out the original cuz I'm pretty sure I've only heard the remix...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

argh! stupid vid keeps getting stuck on that first one! but he looks like the typical guys that work in our 7-11's hehe!

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

The original isn't very interesting anyway. Just your average RnB tune without the bass.

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

Well I liked the vid on that first link too, it was very funny (and very typical of our 7-11 employees on this end)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

It's amusing. What's not amusing is random tracks of Rihanna getting played all day long. Jesus, how big is she anyway?

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

Veryyyyy (atleast over here) but I only like two of her tunes the rest get to be annoying (she's even on every cosmetic commercial on TV now)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

I heard this tune the other day and liked it (I was surprised to find out it was PCD's)

[link]

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

PCD? Oh no, not the Pussy Cat Trolls. Only one can sing and the rest serve as screen filler.

*Shivers* dutchy I found all kinds of stuff on Burzum on youtube, now I know that guy is totally crazy! OMG I wish I didn't check that out at this time (I'm gonna have nightmares!)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

I remember you telling me alil about this nut but I haddd to read this after looking at those youtube things they had (apparently the guy he killed was nuttier than him cuz I read a few of his interviews as well)

This was like reading a book! [link]

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 2 days ago

Legend has it the vocals on that track were "sung" through a telephone from prison. What I find especially interesting though, is not the murder, not the church burnings, not the whole posing and attitude, but the fact that his earliest songs are his best and he was very young when he wrote those.

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

What I find interesting is that through only listening to his tunes I knew before you told me and before I read the rest of his lifes story he was a complete nut! It comes right through his music! *shivers* (and I did have bad dreams last night though not about him but someone was trying to kill me!) hehe

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

Rather typical is that he's playing the "I am a victim" card.

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

I know! cuz he heard that other guy "said" he was going to tie him up and torture him on video to take him out of the contract he thinks that justifies it? I was really curious last night and was poking around in the other guys past interviews and it seems the other guy had no soul (was really sad reading some of the crazy stuff he was spewing out of his mouth) Have you read any of Euronymous interviews? Of course it's hard to tell where to draw the line on what he says as serious or fluff but most of it weighs on the side of insanity! Some ppl who have no faith and think of human beings as a mere higher level of animal seem to think of another human beings life as completely disposable (funny though the ppl they love are not disposable cuz they are a considered a higher level species) hehe!

Just that when I read that I could feel all this empty black darkness in both their souls.

Crazy stuff...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

I was jumping links last night so I can't seem to find all the interviews I was reading but one thing that rang through "all" his interviews is he worshipped Death and was everyone else in the death metal scene were mere idiots and punks cuz they did not worship death. However, when he was dying he was banging on his neighbors walls and door screaming for help cuz he was scared and feared death. He apparently didn't die w/ dignity and worship his own death huh? (or atleast that is the way it read)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

and was everyone = and said everyone

(my fingers want to type their own things) hehe

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

It's all a facade they put up to make the music look evil. Oppose the mainstream to create your own niche. When older members of that scene look back they tend to distance themselves from all that nonsense.

Teenage fans of the genre tend to stress the undergroundness of the genre, preferring lo-fi recordings, limited distribution, nasty lyrics and what not. They want it to be "kvlt" (cult) and consider "successful" bands as sell-outs. Older fans ridicule them mercilessly for it and rightfully so.

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

I think "some" not all but "some" must be evil for a evil sound like that to come out of them, I mean how do you know how to make evil if your not evil, you have to be it, feel it, taste it to do it! hehe

I don't know dutchy but those interviews all seemed to me like the guy breathed evil (did you read them) or maybe I just read his worse ones who knows? They made me have bad dreams though! I dreamed someone was trying to kill meeee! I woke up all out of breath like I was running or something.

One thing they seem to have in common they die young so maybe they do worship death too much...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

[link]

Look at most musicians, who they are basically is what their music is (I mean who they are just "seems" to ooze out through their music) I'll shut up before I sound more rediculous (cuz I don't know how to say it) but most music comes out of a person's feelings or their soul right?

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

Word of the day: gullible. Don't believe the hype. You can write about everything if you use your imagination a bit. It's all about creating a certain mood.

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

Look dutchy go to this I just finished watching this one:

[link]

go to 5:48 -5:52 (He says it himself what I wasss just trying to say!)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

Nooo I'm not gullible! I just believe exactly what he says himself too check that out!

Music is a sort of expression of ones self and a musician's music is an extension of himself/herself most of them don't just make sounds to create certain moods its "their" moods/soul inside of them that creates the sounds.

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

We don't count cuz we just listen to it we don't make it!(God forbid I be judged who I am by what I listen too) hehe!!!

But just think about it for a minute, think about the various recording artist such as Snoop, Tupac, various County, Christian, Metal singers they are what their music is...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

[link]

Anddd check out 1:52-1:54 and tell me if you would swing by this guys house and join him for a cup of tea?

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

Okay last one (while your snoring over there) I skimmed his interview this was the last part: [link]

He'd be extremely interesting to visit (but I would only go have that cup of tea at his house if I had 3 or more friends w/ me)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

I'd be grim and morbid too if I were to sit in a lone cabin on a mountain top all day. I was hoping he'd throw those whiny reporters in an abyss, but alas...

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

hehe true dutchy, I was laughing cuz one of them got pissed off cuz the guy would not tell them why or where he was taking them up on that cold snowy mountain top. The journalist was acting like he was pissed off but in actuality he was scared to death! hehe

But then they get to the top and he shares a most sentimental and private part of his life = the cabin of his Grandparents w/ them. (Ms Gullible thought that was kinda sweet) however at the end of the vid he goes into off mode while the camera was still taping and the stare of insanity he gave is going to make me have more bad dreams tonight! hehe!

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

You may think I'm crazy but I kinda think the guy is cool, I mean he's scarey in his own way but to me it seemed he was "trying" to really reveal who "he" is to these guys? He shared some private paintings and took them up to his sacred spot on a mountain top to share part of himself and show them who he is, but all these guys did was trip on his rep as a musician, I think he was trying to show them he is not what his music or reputation is.

But then you see this totally dark and scarey human being = which is what his music sounds like!

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 1 day ago

I'd have to check out the full vid. Norway though, is a strange country. There are only a few big cities and as soon as you step out of them you're in the wilderness. So I'm not surprised it produces somewhat weird people.

// crae_work / 466 weeks and 21 hours ago

The full vid is in (5) diff parts so it's rather long but kind of interesting...

I really don't know what to think about it cuz it's just so totally different. Depending on what kind of ppl you are surrounded by being alone and detached from them could be healthy, on the other hand being alone too much could make you just plain weird like you said. (It's all a balancing act)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 19 hours ago

That man though had the most black, still, semi-lonely, shivering cold soul I ever seen. But I thought it was so neat to see him open up and show part of himself. (But that guy needs a weekend girlfriend badly!)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 19 hours ago

Alright maybe not a weekend girlfriend cuz I doubt he could handle that maybe a one day a week girlfriend... hehe

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 19 hours ago

Apparently, he's more into men. Also check this: [link])

// crae_work / 466 weeks and 19 hours ago

...and add a ) to the end of that link. Grr, that's the second link that breaks my parser in the five plus years of its existence.

// crae_work / 466 weeks and 18 hours ago

Yikes! Are you talking about this interview on that link?

[link]

I'm listening to it right now but right off the top he says:

Music is from feelings and I would not do anything not related to me. Music needs to be something you are close to.

Seeeee!

Music shows you who the recording artist is.

/me goes back to listening to him...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 16 hours ago

I have to say it again, cuz this blows my mind first he says I can do anything then he says he can't do anything that is not related to him. My point! Case Dismissed! hehe!

but I need to hear this entire interview now cuz this guy fascinates me...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 16 hours ago

Argh! I can't listen to it right now I'm getting interrupted I need to finish up something real quick and get back to it but this one sounds like a good one dutchy. (He even talked about his art alil)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 16 hours ago

Alright dutchy I don't see anything about him being gay on that link? But that is rather shocking but then if follows along his line of weirdness. I don't judge ppl that are gay but I don't understand why ppl of the same sex cannot admire or compliment a same sex person and enjoy their company w/o lusting after them sexually. Ummm there's an issue of Biological Chemistry that cannot be totally fulfilled "naturally" only artificially cuz we were not made to have same sex relationships (but such is normal for mankind to screw up everything in and on this earth for their own pleasures) I can look at another female and think she is fine w/o wanting to jump into a relationship or bed w/ her. (I find that stuff disgusting and disturbing to me) but alot of what other ppl do is just strange to me and scarey...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 14 hours ago

Preference is a genetic thing, not something that is influenced by culture, environment or thought. It's also not a specific human thing, but happens all over the animal kingdom.

Had that interview on in the back and that dude was giggling a lot. I suspect he's a rather shy character.

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 14 hours ago

Do you think it's genitic? It could be, or just an overdose of hormones and the closest and most sex avail all the time to the person is the same sex. I don't know I just don't get it. In the past I had a female friend that I did not know was gay and when she told me she was and then I found out later she had a girl friend I told her

#1. Don't even think you can make a move on me.

#2. When w/ your girlfriend please don't be grabbing or kissing in front of me.

Just respect me and I will respect you. That's all and we were just fine until I moved away and lost touch w/ her.

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 14 hours ago

Umm, yeah. Sounds like you massively disrespected her. Why would you suddenly become afraid or her making a move on you, after you had been friends for ages? She would have had ample opportunity. And did she ever ask you not to make out in front of her?

// craeonics / 466 weeks and 13 hours ago

Cuz when she told me she was gay she was feeling alil too close to me (which is when I told her #1) and I should have stressed the order of #2 was said to her later on when I found out she had a girlfriend. I did not disrespect her dutchy I just put her in her place and we were jusss fine.

Anyways check this out, I found his art one (he was a pretty good artist) [link]

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 13 hours ago

It's at 1:53

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 13 hours ago

I had alot of friends in the past that were alill on the wild side to say the least, I had boundaries dutchy and some boundaries my friends tried to get me to cross and the only way I felt comfortable to remain friends w/ them was to stand my ground, if they didn't like it they could have left being a friend to me it worked both ways right. I had one that was upset that I wouldn't try a certain drug so he joked and said he was going to slip it to me so that I would see there was nothing to be afraid of cuz it wouldn't kill me? To me he was disrespecting what my choice was and stepping over my boundaries (needless to say I had to separate myself from "some" friends that didn't take what I said serious)

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 13 hours ago

And stop thinking of me as gullible! hehe (I'm not) I just have boundaries and boundaries are good. More than half of my friends are either dead from Drug Overdoses, Gsw's or Hepatitis. I just didn't think I needed to be them to be friends w/ them that's all...

// Doreen / 466 weeks and 13 hours ago

Nice "friends" those were then.

Besides Rihanna over powering our radio stations this guy is giving her some competition:

I keep thinking after I'm done and my boys are independent and off of me I'm going to live my own life finally but by that time I'll be too old and using a cane to get around. hehe!

My biological Father called me though recently and he wants me to go visit him in Florida so I'm thinking I may make that trip in June or July cuz my Boss will not let me take time off until then as we have a big survey coming up again. Not so much a vacation but rather catch up time...

// Doreen / 465 weeks and 5 days ago

I see nothing appealing to me around here in the States like everyone else travels around the USA but to me I've no desire as far as that goes cuz to me if you're going to travel you might as well see, feel, taste something totally diff than what you see everyday of your life right?

// Doreen / 465 weeks and 5 days ago

And I'm not fair, get some rest you dutchy (I'm sorry)

// Doreen / 465 weeks and 5 days ago

The idea of travel, for some, is to experience a different culture. Intra-country travel won't cut it then. Others want to relax without hassle, so they just go to the nearest camping.

Anyway, you should give it a spin. Go to Italy for a week(end) or something to find your roots. Culture shock guaranteed.

Whenever I'm on vacation I always think of the zillion things I still want to do... at home.

I used to go back to Brooklyn NY to visit after my Mom and Dad divorced and we moved to Cali but once I grew up and began working and had my boys etc. we lost touch (cept a few calls here and there) As I told you before I think my Step Father over here in Cali has filled the Father void perfectly fine (I could not have been Blessed w/ a better human being to fill in as my Father in my life)

My biological Father is now retired and living in Florida and like I said there is a time for everything and he feels it's time so we'll seeee of course my boys are excited but I feel nervous cuz of all the time between us. I'm old enough now to realize time can also run out and I do want my boys to meet him, so I'm trying to get up enough nerve to take him up on his offer "this" year.

// Doreen / 465 weeks and 4 days ago

Parents don't live forever, so if your kids want to see him and he wants to see them (and you) and you haven't seen each other for two decades, you should go visit him.

// crae_work / 465 weeks and 1 day ago

This song is pretty popular in certain circles. And I know others that absolutely loath it. Regardless, it's pretty catchy.

I know, it's just after so much time even your own flesh and blood father can begin to feel like a complete stranger? hehe

I'm just veryyy nervous dutchy but for "them" I'm going to try to make that trip somehow this year.

Have you noticed that you now need like every browser under the sun installed on your machine to play every plug in needed to stream! (drives me crazy everyone competing to be on your machine!)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Streams can go sod off. I only accept SWF (flash) as plugin and PLS for streams.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Well then you're very disciplined. I like a small variety of apps being available but not when it comes to these stupid plug-ins it's like plug-in Hell these days, I mean there should be a universal plugin to just play all streams cuz who cares! (but now if you want the stream you need to bend your own rules sometimes)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Sooner or later though dutchy as stubborn as you are about what you will and will not put on your machine, you'll probably be forced to cuz everything keeps changing so quickly now and alot of stuff is either outdated or just eliminated. (You stubborn old man) hehe

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Actually even Norton can't keep up w/ it all, cuz I was running a trial and it keeps popping up msgs that it's blocked a recent attack (when all it is, is yet another plug in trying to install)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Okay me has had enough Beyonce for today so that station is going out the window. But before I go find something decent for the rest of my day I have to drop this link for you dutchy check this kid out. (I marked these links for you and forgot to show you them a while back) so cute...

[link]

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Indeed, Beyoncé is even worse than Rihanna. Rihanna at least branches out into different genres. Beyoncé is same old shit, same old shit.

That kid in that video was great, moonwalking all the time.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Hmmm somebodyyy is in a bad mood? (but yes Beyonce is worse than Rihanna!)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Music over here (at least on TV) these days is Rihanna, followed by Beyoncé, then some more Rihanna, etcetera. It's ridiculous.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

/me grabs her fav Dragon CD and plays:

Summoning - Our Foes Shall Fall (only thing that is not irritating me today)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Toss in alil Ne-Yo on that TV of yours and that is exactly what I have on this end as well...

Anyways next up isssss:

Summoning - The Mountain King's Return

Mmmm mmm mmmm! Now this is more like it!

/me goes back to work listening to some killer epic music and thinking about my moody invisible dutch guy... hehe

Mmmmm mmmmm mmmmm!

Summoning - Runes Of Power

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Not everything is crap. For instance, Metallica have managed to produce a decent track again. Until James Hetfield opens his mouth again... Fortunately it's largely instrumental.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Metallica - All Nightmare Long

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

/me is not moving off my Summoning CD (Prob loop this until I finish up everything today, I always forget how good this one is until I play it again)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Actually if I looped Runes Of Power by itself for the next 3-4 hours I'd be fine. Excellente, though I used to think Our Foes Shall Fall was my fav on the CD these two are so outstanding...

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 6 days ago

Really, the only song I like on that CD is "In Hollow Halls beneath the Fells", because it has those awesome war drums.

Oh god, here comes Ne-Yo...

/me runs for the hills

Wow I never pictured him like this:

Either that or he was scared to death when that choir suddenly popped up out of the bushes.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

hehe! It's scared me cuz I didn't expect that. Anyways, I had to go on an adventure to find out all the stuff about him (cuz I was surprised to see him in that vid) I pictured someone totally diff. Seems that was his only good tune.

I don't wanna clean!

Well, you don't have to clean. There's nothing wrong with a mess, other than it being messy.

// crae_evil / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

Not when you're living w/ two lil wheezers...

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

But when they both finish growing up and move out I won't have a mess!!!

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

Sam's been really sick though (his asthma flared up again cuz he got sick w/ a cold so I've been running around w/ Lysol disinfectant in one hand and his meds in the other)

// Dor_nurse / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

He needs better medication in the first place. My dose is so high, I never get sick.

// crae_evil / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

I don't know what in the world is the problem dutchy, I've taken him to specialist and I've gone to classes and changed Doctors. Gino seems to be calming down quite a bit but Sammy's is out of control. Right now he's back on Steroids (pill form for 7 days) Qvar (4 puffs a day) Albuterol Sulfate by the breathing Nebulizer Machine (every 4 hours) and then when it goes away he's fine and then something such as catching a simple cold triggers the whole drama all over again. *sigh*

I chase dust particles around all day, keep the place spotless and germless but when he goes to school he gets sick it's rediculous! Nothing more I can do...

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

Dutchy what are you taking? Maybe your asthma is not as severe or something?

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

This is what they have him on now for 7 days, it's called Prednisone. Sometimes when he gets a sudden attack and I have to take him to the hospital they give him injections of it like that time the stupid Doctor told me "Oh don't worry that sound you are hearing is just another asthma flare up he's fine" them he tossed him some meds and come to find out later when I went back and demanded they do an Xray he had developed pneumonia! and he should have been on Antibiotics. Anyways, I'm at a loss.

[link]

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

Yikes! sorry you're probably in La la land...

What I need is to restart my life get two cats like you and be peaceful! hehe! (j/k you know I love my wheezers but they are killing meeeee!)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 2 days ago

Relax, in a couple of years they'll move out. No wait, Italians stay with their mother until well over thirty.

Prednisone is nasty stuff. It make your body retain water so you get fat real fast. Anyway, I'm on... lemme see...

- heavy stuff against cramps of the air ways: [link]

- stuff against infections: [link]

- stuff against allergies: [link]

Same dose for about two decades now.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

Well Sammy is a small lil guy so when he's on Prednisone he "begins" to gain weight but as soon as he's off of it he shrinks back to his normal self in 3 days. Anyways dutchy you do have it bad too then cuz you're on the same stuff!!! Albuterol and Qvar however the third med you listed I'm not familiar w/ at all. But it probably is the same as the Clariton or Singulair that they put him on to help w/ his Allergies (which trigger the asthma)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

And no way Italians or not they are not staying w/ me until they are 30 (remember we don't live in Italy) Gino is 17 and has his eye on College next year when he turns 18. As for his asthma he had severe asthma too but it seems he is growing out of it or something cuz he no longer has severe attacks anymore like Sam does, and it stays maintained w/ the same meds you take. (cept that 3rd one of which I want to take a closer look at)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

I was tested for allergies when I was four. Childhood memories are rare, but this I'll never forget. They stuck twenty needles in my arm and I turned out to be allergic to nineteen of the compounds injected. The only thing that gave no reaction was the freaking placebo. Been on that nedocromil stuff ever since. Occasionally inhaling salbutamol when I had an attack (every so many years).

Had the last attack at age thirteen or fourteen. The doctor then switched to the mixture I still use today and I haven't had an attack since.

Note that I do try to evoke a response somehow. My room in the past and my house these days are covered with thick layers of dust, I've always had pets and even though I'm allergic to hair, I haven't seen a barber in decades.

Oh, and I've never followed the prescribed dose. Skip about a third.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

That nedocromil stuff (brand used to be called Lomudal, these days it's Tilade) seems not to be prescribed a lot. Everytime I go to the pharmacy to get some, they only have one in stock and have to order more. It works well though, because I only have allergic reactions when I'm out of medicine.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

I wrote down Nedocromil but (I'll note down that it's now called Tilade) and when Sam goes back for his follow up I'm going to ask his Doctor about that Dutchy cuz I really think the problem is he needs the "right" allergy "Blocker" and he currently is not being prescribed the right meds or he would not be having all these problems and flare ups so maybe the one you are taking (if I can get it over here just might do the trick) at any rate it's worth a try and I will try anything cuz I'm really getting very concerned about the constant use of Steroids but when he stops breathing properly I've no choice but to let the Doctors give him that until his lungs open back up so it's a calculated risk that I have to constantly take w/ him, (cuz it's either he stops breathing or steroids)

Thank you dutchy! We may not have that med here but I'll be checking this out for sures.

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

Here's your lil Italian wheezer cyber nephew...

[link]

I'll post another pic someday of Gino, I showed you him already but he don't even look the same since that last pic cuz his hair is growing so fast now I can't even believe it.

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

You mean he looks like a hippie these days. Could be worse, I look like a whino when I don't shave. But I see the problem, his is too small to breathe properly.

By the way, medicines are prescribed as the working ingredient here. The pharmacist then decides what you get. So the magic dust is nedocromil, but it gets branded as Tilade by the producer.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

I know Sammy has no nose! (he's my lil clone) But Gino has a nose a big one but he still can't breath too! hehe

Really dutchy? so strange cuz the Docs over here do the prescribing and if the pharmacist does not have it in stock or wishes to recommend something else he needs to first call the Doctor for prior approval. I've written down "both" names of that med and I'm definitely going to ask his Doctor about it on his follow up appt. which is a few days after he finishes up this dose of Prednisone. "Thank you" for the info.

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

And I doubt very seriously you look like a whino when you don't shave, you prob look sexy so go shave that off right now!!! (But that depends on a womens perspective not yours)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 1 day ago

What I do is that I call my doctor, or rather, his assistant and tell her what I need and where my pharmacist is. She then faxes (yeah, primitive) the prescription to them and a couple of hours later I can pick it up there. Payment is automatically handled between the pharmacist and my insurance company. System works quite well.

// crae_work / 464 weeks and 19 hours ago

Well that sounds much easier than what I've got to go through every time they need their meds. For me on this end I've got to book an appt w/ their Doctor, run them down to the Hospital, so they can be physically examined by the Doctor then the Doctor calls the prescription downstairs to the pharmacy, then we (me and the kids) have to go downstairs to the pharmacy and I stand in a long line to show my insurance cards to the pharmacist to confirm the prescription that the Doctor just called in from upstairs, and then we go sit down in the waiting area and wait for their names to appear on the board for about 30 mins, then I go run back into the line and pay my co-payment at the cashier and pick up the meds. All this waiting while they don't feel good. And it tires me that much more after I'd been up all night taking care of my lil wheezers. (plus juggling my work)

Obviously not a good system over here and my goal has always been to get this under control but I think the Doctors are not prescribing the right meds.

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 17 hours ago

Been dealing w/ this for years and years (which is why I telecommute) but even though I only physically run down into LA on Fridays even on Fridays it's murder cuz they usually take turns on me, though like I said Gino really seems to be finally outgrowing this for the last 2 years now and Sammy is the one that gets flare ups back to back. I'm lucky last week if I slept a total of 8 hours in the week! Thank God today is a Holiday over here.

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 17 hours ago

Sleep is for wussies. Don't they have the magic word "repeat prescription" over there? It means you get the same prescription as last time, so you can bypass the doctor and arrange things with the assistant.

// crae_work / 464 weeks and 17 hours ago

Not w/ Steriod use cuz of Side Effects/Legal issues so for basic inhalers (Albuterol Sulfate) yes but when their asthma is not responding to basic inhalers they make me "always" bring them in so they can listen to their lungs and examine how much air is getting through (they use some tube they force them to breath through as well to measure the air getting through to their lungs)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 16 hours ago

The Doctor gave me one of these to use at home but when they don't respond to treatments at home then I take them into the Doctors...

[link]

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 16 hours ago

Before I was given that machine at home I spent alllll my nights in the Emergency Room so that machine is literally a life saver...

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 16 hours ago

I did not know how serious this was until I went and took a class (for myself) to see what I was dealing w/ (cuz I don't have asthma) and I didn't know how to deal w/ this.

The first thing the teacher did was hand me a soda straw and told me to pinch my nose so I could not breath out of my nose and then place the straw in my mouth and only try to breath out of the straw to show me what is happening to my kids. "Then" I freaked and if that was not bad enough when I met w/ the specialist again about 6 mos ago she told Gino that a 16 yr old girl at Gino's school had a sudden attack of her asthma but the time the ambulance got her from the school to the ER she died. She was 16 I could not believe it! And Gino didn't know how to respond either, cuz we just deal w/ it so much at home.

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 16 hours ago

The thing w/ asthma is trying to keep it under "control" you seem to have yours under perfect control but don't take it lightly dutchy cuz a sudden attack (depending on the severity of it) could mean your life since sometimes trying to reverse the narrowing of the lungs does not respond in time.

I'm actually thinking there is something in the air around here cuz when I take them to the beach the salty air seems to cure their asthma the entire time we are there (but I can't afford to move close to the beach atm)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 15 hours ago

Sea air is healthier than land air. Especially when the wind blows from the sea. Which is why I would never want to live somewhere else than along the coast.

I never had such a machine. Parents are nurses, so they were always on top of things, plus I can feel an attack coming days in advance. Oh, and strange as it may sound, I've had breathing lessons.

// craeonics / 464 weeks and 14 hours ago

I went to check out the prices of houses/apartments (just to rent by the beach) but you have to be a movie star to afford them over here so that idea went out the window...

Breathing lessons? What in the world? after all I've been going through w/ these guys "that" is something I've not heard of (nor has ever been suggested)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 14 hours ago

Anyways you're prob tired from work go relax dutchy it's like your my Diary or something. (I'm sorry)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 14 hours ago

Sounds funny, but they teach you how to control your breathing. Like, breathe in through the nose, out through the mouth, slowly. It's probably to stop the huffing and puffing some people do.

// crae_zzz / 464 weeks and 10 hours ago

Yeah sounds like some relaxation technique though they've never mentioned that to the boys. But they have trained me how to spot the symptoms (not just the usual sounds you can physically hear) but when they labor w/ their breathing and their stomach contracts in they show physical signs etc.

Anyways looks like I'm going to have to take Sammy back tomorrow rather than wait for his follow up appt cuz he's finished w/ his last pill today but he's wheezing so bad you could hear him from 5 ft away so obviously this Prednisone dose still didn't get it calmed back down.

I'm going to ask the Doctor tomorrow about that Nedocromil so when they get him back under control again hopefully we can keep it under control w/ that new med (if I can get it over here I'll let you know)

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 5 hours ago

That must be good med for you to have not one but two cats and no asthma attacks w/ all the allergens you have! And stop snoring so loud I can hear you all the way over here! hehe

// Doreen / 464 weeks and 5 hours ago

Look at it this way: an allergy is just your body's defenses going zero-tolerance for no good reason. An anti-allergy medicine's job is to calm these cops down. It's "just" a matter of finding the right avenue of "communication".

I don't believe completely ridding your surroundings on stimulants is the solution.

// crae_work / 464 weeks and 1 hour ago

Obviously, but when you get as desperate as me for this to just stop you even begin to consider putting them inside a glass bubble! hehe

But I know dutchy it's just finding the right blocker and I'm going to take him back in today so I'll be finding out about your medicine, most likely they will have to do another chest X-ray and be giving him a repeat of steroids again cuz it was another rough night for him.

Thanks again, I'll let you know what happens w/ that Nedocromil cuz I will definitely be asking about it "today"

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 6 days ago

Rediculous same ole same ole...

He can't figure out why he didn't respond to the 7 day course of Steroids so now he wants to tackle it more aggressively w/ guess what? Of course, more steroids, Methylprednisolone Pak so he's taking (6) pills today, (5) tomorrow etc etc until we tapper him off this new dose over the course of the next 6 days.

I asked him about the Nedocromil he said it would be too difficult for him to get that over here but along the family of Nedocromil there is Cromolyn and also Intal so he prescribed him the Intal then I get down to the pharmacy and they didn't have it (so they ordered it) and I'll have to go back tomorrow afternoon to pick that one up.

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 6 days ago

What kind of doctor do you have when you have to suggest the medicines yourself? By the way, did you say pills? I only have aerosols (or in other words: inhalers).

And maybe he didn't respond to the cure because he got used to it. No wait, that's antibiotics.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 6 days ago

I've switched his Doctors in hopes of finding one that will kick this in the behind but, they all pretty much follow the same pattern of prescribing Steroids for severe attacks (just diff kinds "and" diff doses of steroids) And they prescribe that via liquid, injections and also pill form.

When I asked him about the Nodocromil he said it was a sensible suggestion for a new med. In regards to an allergy blocker. He told me that Nodocromil is an extremely low form of allergy blocker (and yes he said it's an inhaler) but that he stopped prescribing that 5 years ago and that is it very difficult to get that over here and since he never had much success w/ it he did not want to go that route but rather try the Cromolyn or "Intal" on him since nothing else seems to be working (Sam's been on several allergy blockers but none apparently work obviously)

No antibiotics this time since the X-ray today showed he does not have pneumonia. This is just an extreme flare up of asthma due to his allergies he said.

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm wondering if he is building some kind of resistance to the Steroids (if that is possible) since they keep putting him on them but again I'm just not sure about anything cept I worry about all the long term effects he may have from the constant medicines. You would think a Doctor could get this in check by now.

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 6 days ago

He prescribed him today Methylprednisolone Pak 4MG it looks weird cuz it's a pull out card that has pill in push out bubble wrap and the dosages are like this:

Today: He takes (6) pills

Day 2: (5) pills

Day 3: (4) pills

Day 4: (3) pills

Day 5: (2) pills

Day 6: (1) pill

He told me since the 7 day course of Prednisone did not work maybe a more aggressive approach like this will get him back under control. And that he needs the steriods to get the wheezing controlled (the allergy blockers are to keep him from getting to the point he is now but they will not help him w/ what is happening at this point in the condition he is currently in)

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 6 days ago

Hmm, weird. I don't think you can build resistance to corticosteroids, but taking all these artificial doses all the time will cause the body's own production to slow down.

I wonder though, the corticosteroids are to prevent inflammations from happening and suppress those that exist. It'll probably take some time before them to kick in. However, I don't think they do anything against the allergies themselves.

Then again, what do I know? I'm no doctor.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

My concern is the after effect down the line from all the meds but there is not much you can do when you have to choose between him breathing or using Steriods. At any rate the new doses def are working I can hear the difference already (he slept through the night and his breathing has changed) so by the time he finishes this new dosing pattern he has him on he'll be fine...

I go to pick up that new inhaler today too and if that works effectively as a blocker than things will be better cuz one thing I do know is all he really needs is the right allergy blocker and then the asthma will not be going out of control.

Anyways enough of my Drama dutchy Thank you...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

And that ends drama class for today, boys and girls.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe! I'm so sorry dutchy I can't help it, I told you that you feel so comfortable to me.

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

I just posted that I was gonna try to stop it but the board ate my post so that means I don't have to now. hehe!

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

Comfortable? What am I? A couch?

// crae_evil / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

I don't know? lemme go lay on you and find out?

// Dor_evil / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

Uh ohhhh me feels that snowy will be lurking around soon again...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

/me goes clean out the fridge so he can get "comfortable" as well

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe dutchy! *sigh* anyways the inhalers I picked up today of Intal (the ones that are suppose to be close to the Nodocromil you take were $352.38! for 3) He game him 800MCG in inhaler form. Do you pay that much for the Nodocromil? Of course w/ my insurance I only paid $20.00 but that is insane!

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

And why does the word "comfortable" bother you? Then cozy!!!

/me goes jump on you! (after I pull you down out of the tree you just climbed up)

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

Alright comfortable is not the word it def is "Cozy" (cuz I looked it up and it shows this for cozy):

Lived-in, peaceful, relaxing, safe, roomy, cushiony, comfy, homelike, easeful, contented, cushy, intimate, snug, homey, and familiar.

So there that is what you feel like to me you invisible dutchy...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 5 days ago

Great, so now I get degraded from a couch to a cushion. But yeah, medicines are expensive.

// crae_work / 463 weeks and 4 days ago

hehe dutchyyy (shut up cuz you know you own a part of my heart) which is weird cuz I only know your spirit and have never met you, but then you've been talking to someone for years here that also loves God and I've never met him either...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 4 days ago

/me is not listening to nothing but stillness but it actually hurts my ears believe it or not!

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 2 days ago

I'm working on the night time images still but here is your location:

[IMG][link][/IMG]

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 2 days ago

My splitting headache must be playing tricks on my eyes. I'm seeing links wrapped in BB-code image tags.

This is more what the weather is like over here: [link]

Maybe I should put up my own webcam.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 2 days ago

Sorry about that I just don't want to put the ss's up on Tek for fear of the bandwidth issue. Do you go to that beach dutchy? (Hard to see it right now cuz it's night time but I'm going to peek at that tomorrow again)

And yeah! put up a webcam so I can watch your cats and you slaving over them and their litter box. hehe! But that'll be the day I faint you do something like that silly...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 2 days ago

/me went back to peek at that beach and it looks like your sun is coming up while it's pitch black on this end. Dutchy go stand by that Statue so I can see you!!! (Is that beach by you?)

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 2 days ago

That beach is like fifteen minutes away. I never go there though. Too crowded, too narrow. There's a wider, quieter beach a bit closer by, but I still don't go there.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

I just peeked at it again right now and I can actually see ppl there but they look so small I still would not be able to see you even if you got off your lazy behind and went to that Statue so I can see you...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

Well no wonder you don't have issues w/ your asthma! It has nothing much to do w/ the meds but rather you have fresh air by you to breath. I'm tripping out on that Webcam so cool (probably will be staring at that alot I can see a beach by my invisible dutchy)

So funny though cuz the ppl are wearing coats at the beach? over here everyone runs around half naked. So that looks strange to me.

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

Dutchy? How come you don't go to the beach? I don't see one single person just sitting on those benches being still w/ their thoughts. For me the beach isss my medicine not only does it help my boys out but I feel at peace at the beach (the prob is I can never get there, where I live now it's quite a drive, so finding the "time" to get this is always an issue)

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

Finallyyyy! (1)guy out of all those ppl shuffling this way and that way, he is standing still w/ his thoughts (for a while by the stairs) staring that the ocean. I can almost hear his thoughts he looks so intense. hehe

Now "that" is what the beach is for to be still, feel and listen to the ocean and air and actually be able to hear yourself just think...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

Dutchy what is that Statue? Is there a close up of it so I see what it is? I just see a mass but I can't tell what it is.

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

Nevermind (google was my friend today) [link] very beautiful I can see it upclose here...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

It's winter, so no-one in his or her right mind would venture out without a coat. The statue symbolises a the women of fishermen who were waiting for their (drowned) husbands to come home. It's a memorial to those who died at see.

That part of the beach is easily the worst spot, but for some reason that webcam is put up there.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

Gah, typo galore! Bloody laptop keyboard...

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

Oh go clip your nails! And it's winter here too but ppl are still running around half naked at our beaches and surfing.

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

Winter here really means winter: freezing cold.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 1 day ago

I guess so! /me goes peek at your beach and sees one lonely jogger. hehe

and one guy (maybe that same guy standing w/ his thoughts back at the stairs again)

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 18 hours ago

Dutchy!!! I have to come share some of my excitement w/ you!

Look! I released my theme yesterday (this one) [link] and sometime last night they hosted it for me on Cydia and it made this months featured theme! Check it out! [link]

I can't believe since last night it has almost 5,000 d/l's already anyways, I had to share this w/ you since I remember the days of my ICQ Photo Skins and your Chakrama skin and us getting excited over 10 d/l's a day. I beleive Cydia gets over a million views a day.

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 18 hours ago

And yes it's free I don't think it's in the cards for me to be rich...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 18 hours ago

Hurray! You're a big shot in iPhone land now.

/me does the math

That theme is, what, three megs or something. 5.000 downloads per day for thirty days would yield a bandwidth usage of 3 * 5000 * 30 / 1024 = 439 gig/month. That's going to be quite a bill for them.

// crae_work / 463 weeks and 17 hours ago

Nooooo not a big shot (I don't ever want to be a big shot silly wabbit) I'm just excited! anyways it says: 86341.78 MB at this point it has not been 24 hours yet (this posted on Cydia last night)

So how much is that? I go as far as 2 + 2 = 5

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 17 hours ago

You said that spot is easily the worse spot on the beach (but I bet it's the best)

[link]

That's the spot I'd be at, if you get your lazy behind over there "someday" you better let me know so I can see you there, look at that sky, pink, white, purple and blue and now I can see boats too. You're nuts cuz it's the best spot to kick back at. I better stop day dreaming and get busy...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 16 hours ago

If you look at this satellite view: [link], the webcam is roughly where it says "Scheveningen". South of that you see the harbour (the "pincers" extending into the sea) and the best spot is the beach a bit further south of there.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 16 hours ago

Amazing and very cool...

I guess cuz of our temperatures over here dutchy (though it's been cooler than normal this winter) it's veryyy hard to find a secluded beach (unless your rich of course) so normally if you go to any of our beaches in the day it's all about push and shove (which I totally despise) so the time for me is best at dusk (when everyone else is leaving) unless I'm dragging my lil wheezers for some fresh air then of course it's push and shove hours...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 15 hours ago

I'm completely numb and lazy today and can't get anything done so I need a push, block out the trashy lyrics of course and here's some good beat to ride and wake up to...

[link]

// Dor_zzz / 463 weeks and 15 hours ago

Welcome to the club. I'm lazy every day.

// craeonics / 463 weeks and 12 hours ago

I'm usually not but the weather has been very cold and it's almost numbing/relaxing usually it's so hot you can't stay still or sleep.

I was trying to find some webcams over here to share w/ you dutchy but there is hardly any! And the ones I found the cameras are placed in horrible sucky locations so you really can't see anything well.

Catalina Island (A hop, skip and a jump via boat ride)

Push and Shove City: [link]

Venice Beach (I don't care for this one but I can't find the beaches I hit) hehe

Circus City: [link]

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 12 hours ago

Argh! rediculous dutchy I can't find any webcams for the beaches I like! when I search google it sends me to dead pages or adult live disgusting webcams! I'll try a few more links before I gross myself out here...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 12 hours ago

Alright I quit! Obviously ppl are clueless where to place a cam on a beach. (the one you posted is a "perfect view" you can see ppl, water, skies a statue by a relaxing spot)

These are beaches but...

Umm see the smog: [link]

See some Palm Trees: [link]

Fairly decent placement: [link]

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 12 hours ago

The first one I thought would give you a view of Palos Verdes (extremely beautiful beach) but you have to climb down a nasty rock cliff to get to it but it's secluded and gorgeous.

Santa Monica Beach is Push and Shove City and so is Hermosa but if you go at off hours you can get some decent beach time in...

// Doreen / 463 weeks and 12 hours ago

Where do I download this theme?! I tried through Cydia and keep getting a timeout error.

*****

(Tons of emails) = Bad idea...

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

That last one looks like a decent beach. But they need to clean the cam and it needs some dunes. Beach without dunes is no fun.

You've used up 140G of bandwidth already. I bet Cydia is starting to have some doubts about hosting things already. But er, why are they mailing you then?

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

What is a dune?

Cydia is basically like what iTunes is (but it's for us that jailbreak our phones to get "free" things, tweaks, apps, themes etc) I didn't ask to be hosted the owner asked me so I felt kinda privileged to be able to contribute back (considering all the free stuff I suck out from them)

Anyways like everything else I believe they make their killings off of advertisements (they must) cuz apparently my file sized theme alone would kill them and they fixed the issue and it's now got over 9,000 d/l's in alil over 1 day and growing! the problem is "I" have no control over it cuz "they" posted it after I gave my permission and they apparently posted my email address from the website (which I normally keep hidden) so I'm being flooded!

You already know themes these days are not themes but rather small apps if not several apps tweaked and blended together to create a theme so you become an idiot dev trying to fix a million bugs to keep your theme working!

At anyrate this was an experience (but my last one, it has to be) there is a guy making a similiar theme like mine but better and when he releases his they will back off of mine...

Dutchy what is a dune? You may have told me once but I don't remember I'm not sure.

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

Oh boy nevermind sorry... [link]

Rediculous now I've got to look up "Aeolian Processes" and "Alluvial Processes" to figure this out!

/me goes jump a few links...

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

You don't know what a dune is? /me falls of the couch

A dune is a sand hill. They exist in deserts (barren) and along the coast (covered with grass and bushes). Over here, dune ranges lay between the beach and the inland. And seeing that most of this country lies below sea level, they're the prime defense against flooding over here.

You can't see the sea from inland. You'll have to cross the dunes to get there.

See: [link] for some picks

// crae_guru / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

No dutchy I didn't know but they are beautifully scenic! [link] Our beaches are so flat? We don't seem to have anything like that (Or that I've seen)

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

Dutchy I don't want to forget to say "Thank you" about mentioning that Nedocromil to me, cuz as I told you the Doctor gave him a med that he told me is the same thing from the Nedocromil family (but alil more stronger) when I went and picked up the meds I noticed he gave me (3) inhalers of it when I was expecting only (1) so I called him back and asked if Gino could use this as well and he said yes it would be good for him to try as well.

They are taking (2) puffs twice and day along w/ their usual Qvar and "both" of them are doing great!!! I can't even believe it! Of course time will tell but it's been fantastic not a wheeze going on over here! So "Thank you" crae_guru (you are a guru)

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

Yikes! [link]

I could toss a blanket on that spot and sleep for a year! hehe

Very pretty...

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

I can't imagine a beach without dunes. It would be like the beach was an extension of the boardwalk or something. Totally no atmosphere. The nice things about dunes is that you can't see the city when you're at the beach, because the dunes hide it from sight.

Regarding the medicines, it's a bit to soon to draw definite conclusions. You should wait a month or so. At least this stuff beats them corticosteroids. Long time use of that can't be good.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

I know dutchy that's why I said time will tell but so far so good (cept they said the taste is nasty when they spray it) but they both told me they are feeling much better since they've been using it, less coughing and breathing much better so again so far so good...

The only beach over here that you described where you can hide from the city is the one that I told you I have to practically flirt w/ death to climb down a rocky cliff.

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

Good Night dutchyyy sorry I've been chatting your eyes off, get some rest I'll give it a break.

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

The original version I used (Lomudal) tasted horribly, but the version I have these days (Tilade) has a lemon flavour. Two things to look out for: 1) aerosols can get clogged; and 2) the particles can be a bit harsh on the throat.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

#2 They are both complaining about but it said on the paperwork that came along w/ the inhalers that is a side effect that will go away w/ time and continued use.

Now you get up and get to work!

/me goes jump in bed early...

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 6 days ago

Finally something new, decent and fresh popping up:

[link]

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 4 days ago

What in the seven hells is that? The intro was fine and then the actuall song rolled in and ruined everything.

Meanwhile, /me is ripping some new CD's: Vreid, Leviathan, Ulfdalir, Throndt, Bergthron and Satyricon... I on ly know one of those bands, so I'll let the rest surprise me.

// crae_evil / 462 weeks and 4 days ago

/me feels shivers coming on (cuz they "look" evil)

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 4 days ago

Can't listen to any of them right now anyway. Only one disc to go, the bonu disc of Satyricon's latest. Pressing is so so, because EAC's been at it for at leat half an hour now (I want the best possible rip). CD-drive is going crazy.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 4 days ago

Well you're probably burning the thing out dutchy! hehe

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 4 days ago

Quite possible. It's nine years old. But it's completely and thoroughly calibrated for quality ripping, so I don't want to use anything else.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 4 days ago

Good excuse Mr. Cheapy...

/me is listening to the office air conditioner (which sounds like it's about to die)

// Dor_work / 462 weeks and 3 days ago

Hmmm I come over here to have lunch w/ you and you don't even have a cracker for me!!!

/me goes look for some food...

// Dor_work / 462 weeks and 3 days ago

I don't have crackers because you should eat real food. Crackers are nothing but fibers.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 3 days ago

Well I don't trust the food at the Hospital it's yuk! (and all that I was able to find around here today was some crackers) hehe

I think I want sushi tonight and stop making that face! It's good!

Dutchy I noticed when I come here from work, not at home but only here at work that the text box gets cut off to the right (drives me nuts cuz I cannot see what I'm typing cuz the words all get hidden)

// Dor_work / 462 weeks and 3 days ago

Oi? It should wrap when you reach te right border. Does it not wrap or is the right border off the screen.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 2 days ago

When I'm on their computer and I type into this box the curser keeps going beyond the box (where I can no longer see what I'm typing) but here at home when I type and get to the right border yes it wraps back to the left (so I can always see the words I'm typing)

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 2 days ago

Multiple possibilities: 1) that machine has a very low resolution and the site doesn't fit onto the screen; or 2) the browser you use there dates back to prehistoric times.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 2 days ago

Umm (I'm sure it's both) but I can't change the resolution on it cuz then when I dial in from home to work I have problems w/ the windows. I'm sure other ppl would have the same issue over here but since me and you are basically the main users of this ghost town forum you're off the hook from fixing it you lazy bunny!

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 2 days ago

Yikes! Zapp!!!

[link]

/me comes vibrate the board while you're in La la land...

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 2 days ago

Hmm, why is he holding that hose in his mouth. Does that somehow do the distortion?

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Either that or the guy is on Oxygen? Yesss silly I always wondered what he used for the sound effects I was surprised to see him using something that looks so strange.

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Snoop was walking around with something similar in his Sensual Seduction/Sexual Eruption video: [link]

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Hmmm well when he uses that thing it's a drastic improvement over his own voice. hehe

I expected that thing they use to look different for some reason, I did not expect it to be a rediculous looking huge tube like that? Didn't you?

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Anyways his best tune (and only cuz his cousin Nate and Xzibit save him)

[link]

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

One more, but again Dr Dre saves him, actually I don't like his voice at all I block him completely out (I only listen to the bg sounds going on as usual)

[link]

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Dutchy check this out when you get a chance later on...

From Italy: [link]

Click on "Legacy of the Snake" (the girl reminds me of that one in Lacuna Coil)

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

You're missing out on his best track: Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Doggy Dog - Deep Cover: [link]. Check that bass, it's awesome.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

/me checks... Where the hell is that song, stupid MySpace... Eek, these guys need to shave and cut their hair. Long hair doesn't suit everyone. Ah, there it is.

Hmm, sounds a bit like early After Forever. Perhaps I should give them a spin next time I buy CD's.

The girl looks like your average Italian girl, by the way.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Snoop now days is right around the corner playing coach for kids for his baseball team. The thing is nobody wants to really let their kids be on is team for fear of possible drive-bys (which we unfortunately have a very high rate of over here no matter where you live at)

/me don't see the girl I only "heard" her in the song, where is she? I want to see what an average Italian girl looks like.

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

The tune on that page I was talking about "Legacy of the Snake" has a link up on the right on that page along w/ the embedded music player: [link]

I still cannot find the girl? the only female I see is that female broadcaster on that embedded vid? And though she is speaking Italina I've never seen a Blonde Italian all my family has dark hair (all of them)

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

That's probably because Italians have dark hair. Blond/red hair would mean at least one ancestor came from the north or it's dyed.

Didn't hear female vocals, thought you meant the girl showing off their merchandise.

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

No the girl comes in singing towards the middle of the song on that link up on the right inside that embedded player. (She sounds just like that female singer in Lacuna Coil)

You have to listen to the whole song to catch it (The Legacy of the Snake one) strange it almost has some Indian vibe in it too. hehe

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

She comes in at 3:03 (itsy bitsy part)

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

That part was so itsy-bitsy it didn't even attract my attention. The eastern melody is what remembered me of After Forever, for instance this song: [link], or the live version: [link] (with a horribly distorted guitar).

And speaking of Indian: [link] (there are at most two possible Indians in this video, the rest is not).

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Yeah it seems everyone wants to add a dash of Indian vibe into the mix. And in that last vid I only count (1) authentic Indian, the female.

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

I take that back the old man looks indian too. hehe! everyone else is def not.

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Dutchy check this out before you go jump into La la land...

Who in the world is this!? [link] Is there anyone, anywhere that Timbaland has not got his sticky fingers on? (never heard this one before and now you got me jumping links)

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

Used to be the singer of Soundgarden. Timbaland seems to be inspired by a recent Madonna song that, if I'm not mistaken, was produced by the Neptunes (read: they made the beats).

// craeonics / 462 weeks and 1 day ago

What? Madonna + Timbaland now? He seems to be involved in every recording artist now.

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 19 hours ago

Amazing when I come across some old CD's that I forgot I even had, yesterday I came across an old Sting CD so that's what I'm floating around on today...

Sting - Brand New Day (Murlyn Extended Mix)

I suppose I bought this and listened to it only once or twice. hehe

// Doreen / 462 weeks and 15 hours ago

Must have been a stroke of madness. Keep digging and you'll probably find a Gloria Gaynor album.

// crae_work / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

If I found that one I'd have to go check my birth certificate and see who I am again...

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

Ah, come on. It's right beside your George Michael collection.

// crae_work / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe! /me smacks you and bites your big nose!

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

But I did find all kindsa funny stuff I wore out when I first had bought them, check this one out. (and don't laugh!)

[link]

No more, nooo more, baby I'ma do right... hehe

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

And this one of which I practically melted the CD I played it so much I was surprised it still played!

[link]

And now that I've embarrassed myself enough, I think I'll get back to work. (but I'm going to play that Super Woman againnnn right now) hehe

Mmmm mmmmm mmmmm!!!

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

Never hear either of them. First one I didn't miss much, second one has got a good beat.

// craeonics / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

Dutchy everytime I look at your beach cam it's night! argh!

but is it snowing? I think I see snow on the beach? Well from that link you gave me it show ice or something along the side of that thing. (whatever that is) [link]

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

I want to see you over there dutchy! when are going over there? (please, please)

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

Well actually I won't really be able to see you judging from how that statue looks but I still will be able to see you. When are you going over there? Don't be so stubborn you said it's not far from where you live.

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

It's not freezing at the moment, but we did have wet snow and when I rode home, the heavens decided to drop something that lies between rain and hail upon me. And almost frozen raindrops are freaking cold.

// craeonics / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

Pfft, I never go there. Especially not in this weather.

// craeonics / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

Argh! I hate you!!!!! You're so stubborn! hehe

Alright you stubborn bunny *sigh* I hope you're not riding a bike in that kind of weather? That is what I was thinking about when I just seen that.

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm trying to run some reports in the other window and my fingers will not cooperate w/ the fact that we've already past one whole month in the new year 01/01/09 to 01/31/09 OMG!

// Doreen / 461 weeks and 6 days ago

Yeah, and I haven't posted news in four months. Then again, not much is happening anyway.

and...

[link] (this one he just listens to alot and I can't even believe it's Bathory)

// Doreen / 460 weeks and 2 days ago

Oh, but it is. It's from his first two albums. Very rough material. He didn't go Viking until album four or so.

// craeonics / 460 weeks and 2 days ago

Well I like his viking style much better his earlier stuff reminds me of Burzum, and Gino is currently into his Burzumy style now for some strange reason.(horrible)

// Doreen / 460 weeks and 2 days ago

You mean he's developing a (good) taste in music? For all its unpolishedness and simpleness early Burzum is quite excellent. Later Burzum is more ho-hum. Think endless keyboard patterns repeating minutes upon end, like [link] (no guitars in jail).

I think I'm going to blow away the dust and do some work on Tek today, starting with feeds for the board. I've said that a lot in the past and other things are tempting, so don't hold me up on it.

// craeonics / 460 weeks and 1 day ago

Eek! For some reason my local copy of Tek is completely broken. Now I know why I haven't done shit for ages.

// craeonics / 460 weeks and 1 day ago

You're neglecting our home over here and it's all broken down get to it you lazy bunny and fix it before our roof starts leaking next!

/me is trying to find this new stuff on Limewire but it's no where to be found cept google brought me here:

Listen to "Mr Karma" up on the right in the music player box (pretty good actually excellente)

// Doreen / 460 weeks and 1 day ago

Hmm that was painful trying to listen to that link of yours up there (the Burzum one) it sounds like Ummmmm someone lonely, sad, hopeless, totally bored and sitting in a jail cell?

// Dor_evil / 460 weeks and 1 day ago

Later Burzum just isn't that good. That Bodhi song is a bit too fleeting for me. Needs more bass and different vocals.

I think your work is your hobby. When you have the day off, you just don't know what to do with your time. Maybe you should call the office to see if they need some reports.

// craeonics / 460 weeks and 14 hours ago

I didn't need to cuz my Boss worked the Holiday as did half the nurses so I still have emails beeping on my iPhone all day (but I ignored them)

// Doreen / 460 weeks and 11 hours ago

You should have a work phone and a personal phone. So you can switch off the work phone when you're off duty.

// craeonics / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

One phone is more than enough, anyways you dutchy what are you up to and when are you going to post some fresh news? I'm completely sick of seeing my article/newspost hanging on our front door.

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

I think you should put a webcam so when I get blue for you I can come peek at your web cam and watch you doing nothing as usual. hehe

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

How come they have flowers over there? [link]

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

Because it's a monument for fishermen who drowned at sea.

There is news in the world of Skindom, but I'm on my netbook 99% of the time and it doesn't have an FTP-app yet, so I can't post news from here.

// craeonics / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

Wellll then get an FTP app (boy you have a million and one excuses)

// Dor_nag / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

So it's kinda like a graveyard thingy? *shivers*

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

I wish the camera was closer but then a few times when I went to glance at it I seen ppl there and thought how embarrasing do they know ppl can see them? It's like anybody that is looking at that is like a stalker. hehe!

(cuz I seen a couple kissing over there once)

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

Tsk, tsk, miss stalker.

I don't want to use an FTP-app to post news. So many steps. Find the local copy, edit it, fire up the FTP-app, change to the right directory, FTP the file, dig up the feed, change the feed, FTP it, etcetera. It should be just a form where I can type shit and it should automatically create the feed. But the big trouble is that my local copy of Tek is broken and I suspect what is online is just a patched up version.

// craeonics / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

Sooooo for the time it took you to type all that stuff you could have just done it!

// Dor_nag / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

Don't plastic have a backup copy thingie? Or would that still not be sufficient? Cuz I don't have a clue what you mean but I'm thinking sooner or later you will have to deal w/ it right?

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

Nevermind I just thought if the online copy is broken then any backup copies would be broken as well?

/me blames it on the rain I'm still dingy from it...

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

Yikes! It's already midnight over there g'night dutchy...

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

This version works, obviously, but I feel it's a bit messy. Anyway, I'll take a look at things this week.

// craeonics / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

Okay, me tosses a pillow at you...

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 6 days ago

/me awakens with a splitting headache...

Shop where I get my CDs had a special offer for a pack of 24 CDs of artists I've never heard of before for €25 if you'd spend over €70 on CDs. So I went a bit overboard and ordered €70 on CDs (grand total of five to be exact). Hmm, the special pack thing won't fit in a normal envelope (obviously, 24 CDs), so I had to pay extra shipping because the total was below €100. Added another CD to the shopping cart and hurray, no extra shipping costs and 3% off to boot.

Long story short, I just ordered 31 CDs of artists I've never heard of. Should be interesting. Hope it's not all crap.

// crae_zzz / 459 weeks and 3 days ago

hehe you are such a nut I can't even believe you! Hey wait I just noticed the box is stretched out bigger over here at work but still when I get to the right side I can't see what I'm typing for a few words before it goes to the the next line.

Anyways me is outta here! (long day)

// Dor_work / 459 weeks and 3 days ago

Are you listening to any Mary Poppins CD over there? (I'm sure they gave you all the reject CD's that nobody else would buy)

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 2 days ago

I bet they slipped a Spoon Full of Sugar in that batch of CD's

[link]

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 2 days ago

/me is listening to my neighbor playing:

[link]

(everyone is on a Akon kick right now on their radio stations)

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 2 days ago

Apparently he doesn't know how to make a music vid w/o trying to make a motion picture? Out of all his new tunes flooding the radio station this old one of his was his only decent one...

[link]

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 2 days ago

Akon should do a duet with Mary Poppins. I'm sure it would result in the worst song ever.

// crae_zzz / 459 weeks and 2 days ago

Latest Prodigy single is pretty good. Not anything groundbreaking or innovating, just their usual material. Not enough breakbeats in music these days, so it's very welcome.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: The Prodigy - Omen

// crae_zzz / 459 weeks and 2 days ago

Why is my dutchy so zzzz all the time now? are you getting old now? Or too much partying?

/me kicks you!

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 2 days ago

Because it was almost dawn already when I wrote that. My legs were so tired (or restless rather) I could hardly move.

// craeonics / 459 weeks and 1 day ago

Welll morning on this end yet again (seems I blink and it's another day already!)

Anyways me comes to say g'morning to my sleepy dutchy and go peek at your beach right now...

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 1 day ago

O

M

G!

Thazzz the most ppl I have ever seen there! (I'm use to seeing nobody there but maybe 3-5 at most)

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 1 day ago

This one is really cool too, today I can see some ppl and two dogs going crazy running around, white segals flying by the camera and lil birds walking along the sand eating. I swear they've got that cam in the most perfect spot it must be hanging from a cloud in the sky or something!

[link]

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 1 day ago

/me checks...

Darkness, or rather the glare of street lights hanging next to the camera. Is that the same cam? Don't see the statue.

// craeonics / 459 weeks and 1 day ago

No silly just click on it tomorrow so you can see it, it's a camera at the same beach but one positioned practically on the sand by the water...

I spotted the link on the same page you gave to me the link was posted right beneath the statue web cam page.

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 1 day ago

Ah, now I see. This one is placed a little further south. Those rocks you see stretching into the sea with the light towers on 'em mean this is near the harbour.

// crae_work / 459 weeks and 20 hours ago

Medicine for my eyes, the cam is placed so good on that spot it's almost like being there on the sand! Rather be there today.

/me goes wake up...

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 19 hours ago

That part of the beach is also where the surfers hang out. Though probably not in these temperatures.

// crae_work / 459 weeks and 18 hours ago

You mean all the hang tenners? hehe

It looks like it's dusk over there now dutchy so pretty (but over here it's 9:30am and completely overcast and though morning it looks and feels like it's 6:00pm)

Not good working weather cuz I get paralyzed by comfortable cool gloomy weather, it zaps my energy or something.

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 16 hours ago

You won't see it by the time you look, but the camera is really in a good spot, I can see the dusk colors and someone just jogging and the waves crashing on the rocks.

Argh! makes me want to go run to the beach!

[IMG][link][/IMG]

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 16 hours ago

Just by looking at it I can almost hear and feel it. hehe

/me goes back to boring work today (argh! I don't wanna work!)

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 16 hours ago

You seriously need to more to a house with a view of the ocean.

// craeonics / 459 weeks and 15 hours ago

Argh... ~move...

// craeonics / 459 weeks and 15 hours ago

I know, I'm saving and I have $23.75 cents saved but I'm thinking about buying a new CD instead. hehe

That was my goal but my kids got in the way of that goal, now Gino has his eye on College so I'm thinking I'm doomed for sures now...

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 14 hours ago

Anyways, I have that link you gave me (almost as good, it's like looking out a window for me) hehe!

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 14 hours ago

Hey, it's called "Windows" for a reason. It gives you a nice "Vista" of the sea.

// crae_zzz / 459 weeks and 11 hours ago

/me kicks you and tosses a pillow at your head!

// Doreen / 459 weeks and 11 hours ago

This song is banned in this office it seems. Lots of haters. Regardless, I control the tunes today.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Europe - The Final Countdown

// crae_80s / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe dutchyyy, They obviously don't know how lucky they are that you don't bring one of your evil CD's from home into the office.

I was just peeking out my window again and seen this:

[IMG][link][/IMG]

Actually that's your window...

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

Mmmm now "that" is what you call perfect Beach time (Dusk) not early morning when the rest of the world hits the Beach...

Anyways, relaxxx that's the last pic I'll shove in your face of your Beach. hehe

Can't help it, I showed you that there's no good positioned beach cams on this end to look at!

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

OMG! no wonder you've got haters over there hating that is disgusting! This one? [link] It starts out like a theme from Rocky or something, gross...

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

That's the one.

Meanwhile it seems the shop sent my CDs to the wrong address. I entered my parents address as the drop off point, since they're retired, but I got home and found a message from the mailman that said he'd be back with the package tomorrow. Grrreat. I'm not at home when he delivers. During office hours people tend to be... in the office (duh). So tommorow the mailman will find I'm not at home and I then have to go pick up the package on the other side of town, which, ofcourse, can only be done in the shortest of timeframes. Grrr... I'm going to kick that shop.

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe! I have a package due on Thursday (according to what my tracking info states online) which means I will have to keep running out to the front of where I live to make sure my neighbors don't lock the gate on him, so I will be running back and forth every hour to the front to check the gate and then guess what? right before he comes to deliver my package someone will lock the gate and then I will go outside and find one of those wonderful pick slips stuck on the front gate that says he was unable to make the delivery due to the gate being lock and he will return tomorrow (of course on Fridays I'm in Los Angeles working!) and they don't deliver on Sat or Sun so I will have to wait until Monday of which I will then begin to guard the gate all day long againnnn!

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

Sounds familiar. Why don't those goons deliver in the evening or have a pickup point somewhere close?

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

No kidding and the only one that has a key to get into the gate is the Mailman our manager has not figured out it might be a good idea to either install a buzzer at that stupid gate or give a key to the UPS.

Anyways something good believe it or not by Akon:

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

and a dash of 50 cent too...

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

Mmmm mmm mmmmm!!!

Instrumental version (now I need to go see if Limewire is my friend today)

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

"Akon" and "good" in the same sentence is an impossibility.

// crae_work / 458 weeks and 6 days ago

Well it's better than that Final Countdown that you're torturing your co-workers with! hehe

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 5 days ago

Currently torturing them with the Rolling Stones. God, these guys are so old even my parents know them.

// crae_work / 458 weeks and 5 days ago

Mmmm though I don't care for this guy either he put a nice twist on this tune...

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 5 days ago

Only good tune by the Stones (and this vid is pretty cool too)

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 5 days ago

Ugh! me feels sicker and weaker than a dog today (I think a flu jumped me) so me no listen to anything today cuz any vibration (including the guy outside who is currently using a leaf blower) is making me jump outside my skin today!!!

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 4 days ago

Well my delivery guy got through the gate today (must be my lucky day)

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 4 days ago

Get well soon then. Meanwhile... /me is ripping a pile of CDs... This is going to take weeks.

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 3 days ago

So you got your delivery too I see...

// Dor_work / 458 weeks and 3 days ago

Yup. From what I've heard so far, it's not particularly dreadful and there's some pretty good material hidden in there as well.

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 3 days ago

What!? No Mary Poppins?

// Dor_work / 458 weeks and 3 days ago

Why on earth would anyone want to listen to Mary Poppins?

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 2 days ago

Cuz they're crazy, anyways you must be in one of your serious moods today to have taken that serious?

/me goes try to wake up...

// Dor_zzz / 458 weeks and 2 days ago

I'm always in the same mood. It just depends on the things said and if the associations I have are playful or serious.

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 2 days ago

hehe dutchyyyy oh boy *sigh* well the things "you" say always make me smile (or *sigh* depending on if the associates are playful or serious) hehe

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 2 days ago

Post some news you lazy bunny!

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 2 days ago

Yeah, yeah. I can post sryo's recent finds, but my computer is for away. I'd have to get off the couch, walk over to the computer, fire it up, wait for it to boot, dig up an FTP app that still works (unlike SmartFTP which I used for years bt went payware and suddenly ceased functioning), connect to the server, download the right file, open it in a text editor, follow the links and turn them into news articles, upload the file back to the server, repeat the process three times to fix typos, look up the feed, download the feed, manually add the new news items, upload it to the server again, delete it and upload it to the correct folder this time, and presto!

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 2 days ago

And??? Once again by the time you typed all that! (plus typed for away = far away to fix all those typos and everything) you'd have already done it! You lazy bunny! hehe

I know you probably feel like it's just more work considering that kind of like what you do all day for your paycheck. But I'm sick of seeing my stupid news post forever!

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 2 days ago

/me thinks do I want to go hunting for an hour for a cool tune I heard by Estelle and Sean Paul right now or wait till tomorrow?

/me waits till tomorrow...

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 2 days ago

This one is nice, be it old: [link], with come clever wordplay for those that understand Dutch and a great bridge at two thirds for everyone.

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 1 day ago

Umm I don't even know what to say about that? (cept now I'm confused and totally disorientated by those sounds and words) hehe

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 1 day ago

I had to see what this one was that was listed off to the right (cuz the typical dutch looking pic) and this one sounds good...

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 1 day ago

Dutchy I was messing around w/ some RSS apps for my iPhone again and was wondering if you're aware of the number of subscribers to your news feed? (cuz I noticed something weird)

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 1 day ago

I have no idea how many people use it. Wht's weird about it?

// crae_zzz / 458 weeks and 1 day ago

I had to upgrade my OS on my iPhone againnn cuz my existing apps I use for work stopped working due to apple driving everyone crazy w/ updates every week! Anyways each time they do this some free apps I use when I jailbreak no longer work anymore so then I end up going on a hunt to find some replacements and when I was searching around for a new RSS app when I added the feed for our site I noticed the app actually gave some strange stats on Tek such as average reads per hour, day, month etc and subscribers to the news feed links etc.

I thought that info being avail from an RSS app a bit overkill anyways I trashed the app that's not what I was looking for...

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 1 day ago

Especially since feeds don't provide that info.

Ah, completely fresh, so let me go post some news. Oh no, wait, I have to work all day first.

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Wham! - The Edge of Heaven

// crae_work / 458 weeks and 1 day ago

One of my anthems again. For the lyrics and not so much the melody.

# I

# I live among the creatures of the night

# I haven't got the will to try and fight

# Against a new tomorrow

# So I guess I'll just believe

# And tomorrow never comes

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Laura Branigan - Self Control

// crae_80s / 458 weeks and 20 hours ago

/me grabs some tweezers and picks up that Wham and dangles it over the garbage and opens up the tweezers and drops it...

You need to be listening to this:

[link]

Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!!!

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 17 hours ago

/me kicks Estelle back to the curb where she and her crud songs belong and put on the news

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 15 hours ago

Oh you are definitely developing senile dementia now. hehe

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 15 hours ago

/me ignores grandma Doreen and her 19th century records and plays De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig's latest...

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig - Buma in me Zak

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 14 hours ago

Argh!!! dutchy the light bulb blew out that used to hang over the beach cam (I know there was a light cuz I could still see it at night just not as good as day of course) so I need you to go replace that light bulb for me! hehe

[link]

/me goes check out that dutch stuffezzzz

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 13 hours ago

Alright I'm clueless what it was about but it was good stuffezz (and semi-decent vid)

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 13 hours ago

Ummmm what in the world are they wearing???

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 13 hours ago

Argh, darkness is upon us!

/listen

* craeonics is listening to: Delerium ft. Sarah McLachlan - Silence 2008 [link] (the link is the Tiësto mix, there are sixteen thousand versions of that song and I can't find the bloody original, but at least this one has the video)

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 13 hours ago

Whoops, cross-posting. I think they just rolled out of bed and forgot to dress,

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 13 hours ago

/me is checking this out (I actually think the Opposites are betterrr) Mmmm

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 13 hours ago

Over here alot of ppl listen to Sarah McLachlan (I'm not crazy about her at all)

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 13 hours ago

I only know her from participations like that song

This is a better Opposites track, by the way: [link]

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 13 hours ago

Obvious chick tune in dutch I guess (I like it) I'm just hopping links over on the right there's alot of diff flavors there. But this one is good...

[link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 12 hours ago

What is Zouk mean?

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 12 hours ago

[link]

Yesssss now "that" is some goooood stuffezzzz!

/me goes loop that for a while. hehe

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 12 hours ago

Yikes! Dutchy I want that one what CD is that, help me find it so I can buy it (but not that Euro stuff please cuz I don't understand that)

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 12 hours ago

Is this the one? [link]

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 12 hours ago

No, I don't think so. Let me look it up...

Zouk is an African(esque) type of dance music, by the way. The melody you heard in that first link was typical Zouk.

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 11 hours ago

Correction, yeah, it is on that album. It's the last track.

// craeonics / 458 weeks and 11 hours ago

I know and I got it! (I sent you something but I'm sure I'm just sitting in your spam box)

// Doreen / 458 weeks and 11 hours ago

A bit of a surprise to hear Flo in this remake but I guess it works...

[link]

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 6 days ago

If they're going to steal a chorus they should at least try to trump the original: [link]

// crae_zzz / 457 weeks and 6 days ago

/me goes tip toe around you and your snoring cats and check that out...

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 6 days ago

/me goes retire my booty tunes (atleast for today) and float around on some tunes I've been totally neglecting on Air 1

Tenth Avenue North - By Your Side

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 5 days ago

/me goes clean up his paper work... Time for the annual tax thing again.

// craeonics / 457 weeks and 5 days ago

That's always fun, I did mine early cuz Gino needed it done to see if we can qualify for assistance for a College Loan (this is going to kill me and there goes my beach house for sures)

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 5 days ago

And if Gino don't eat up my beach house Sammy will next...

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 5 days ago

I was going to try not to bother you whilst you work on your boring tax return but I can't help it I have to come jump up and down in this thread real quick!!!

[URL=[link]][IMG][link][/IMG][/URL]

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 5 days ago

Hmm I wasss trying to show you my CD shipped out to me today! but now I'm trying to figure out what is that mess? (Something changed on ImageShack)

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 5 days ago

One day you'll have to explain to me why you don't just copy/paste the address of the pic but enclose it in crap tags for equally crappy fora.

Anyhow, yay!

// craeonics / 457 weeks and 5 days ago

And one day you'll have to explain to me why you don't just make this board take embedded images? but then it will take forever to load (okay so I answered my own question)

I can't wait!

I can't wait!

I can't wait!

I sure hope it doesn't get delivered on Friday when I'm not home or I'm going to have a fit!

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 5 days ago

And it's that time againnn, my mom just dropped off my step Dad's laptop for me to fix. *sigh*

/me goes fix it for lunch...

// Dor_tech / 457 weeks and 4 days ago

Dr. Dor to the rescue!

// craeonics / 457 weeks and 4 days ago

If I were a Dr. I'd hire someone to fix their computers everytime they kill them...

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 4 days ago

What's happening is they go to these stupid online game sites to play boring little games (I mean reallyyyy boring games) and then they get virus' I guess through pop ups that they keep clicking on (obviously the ones where they say "You just won a new car!) I don't know, even though I tell them over and over again don't click on pop ups! Dont even go to those boring free gaming sites just go buy some game and play it off your machine or something.

They drive me crazy dutchy! I couldn't even reformat his lap top cuz it kept locking up during start up and wouldn't let me boot it up and get things going. I got it after a couple of hours but argh!!! (then I could have sworn I spotted a porn cookie so I snitched and told my mom!) hehe!

// Dor_snitch / 457 weeks and 4 days ago

Silly games can't get worse than what my mother does. Playing cardgames on the computer (Solitaire, Free Cell, Spider) all the time. But at least I made sure she uses Firefox/Thunderbird for Net business, so no chance of infections there.

// craeonics / 457 weeks and 3 days ago

Hmm I guess I should install that on their machines then (this weekend I'll do it)

// Dor_work / 457 weeks and 3 days ago

Actually, the protection is trifold:

1) All net activity goes through a router, so no need for firewall software.

2) Email is handled by Thunderbird with script execution disabled.

3) Web browsing is via Firefox which is not as deeply embedded into the OS as IE nor does it support ActiveX, which is attack vector number one.

Ofcourse this will never rule out the human factor. It is unlikely that my mother will install software and my father likes to brag about how he never goes near computers, so the only hazard is if my sister drops by and pulls some stunt.

// craeonics / 457 weeks and 2 days ago

Well the only problem I have w/ them is those silly games sites they go to play at, some will only work w/ IE I believe cuz they play (well my mom) plays something called pop-it? and other games that require a window to pop up if the window doesn't pop up the game won't start, they play against other ppl online and my mom play w/ her sister who lives out of State so I can't seem to get them to stop the online stuff. And my stepfather wellll I'm not so sure what he is up to besides games. hehe!

Just kidding apparently he gets garbage in the mail and he's silly enough to click on links which hyjack him to porn (or so he says) hehe

At any rate me goes get ready I have to go drop off his laptop to him and go visit my mom for a bit today, and see what trouble my sister is getting into these days...

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 2 days ago

Oh boy, I hate when we have to change the time on our clocks, this is horrible again...

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 1 day ago

Hey dutchy I just spotted something a way to link to a specific portion of a vid check this out, me test to see if it goes to some cool old school dancing...

[link]

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 1 day ago

And the part of this song where I always get hypnotized for a few seconds.

[link]

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 1 day ago

And it works!

/me tries not to listen to that part and fall into a trance cuz I need to go dance w/ the laundry today...

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 1 day ago

/me investigates...

Ah, I see. If you tack #4m17s at the end of the link, it will start at four minutes and seventeen seconds.

// craeonics / 457 weeks and 1 day ago

Mijn Opposites CD kwam vandaag! (I'm sure that's not right but who cares, I got my CD!)

/me goes check it out...

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 10 hours ago

Hmm it's in a cardboard type box thingie that's plastic wrapped and on the back there's a lil white sticker that says "Made in: HOLLAND" inside there's a small paper poster and from the looks of it they do some of their recording in their apartment?

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 10 hours ago

/me peels the lil sticker off (that says Made in: HOLLAND) and sticks it on the Cardboard box CD and tosses the plastic wrap in the trash and goes partyyyy w/ my new CD!!!

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 10 hours ago

You do know when you guys say bad words it sound funny right?

Anyways no review today (cuz this CD has a ton of tunes on it)

// Doreen / 457 weeks and 9 hours ago

Gah! Doreen is talking fluent Dutch! The cardboard box thing is called a "digipak": [link]. Limited or deluxe editions are usually digipaks while normal editions come in a jewel case. I have a soft spot for the things, they look so much better.

// crae_work / 457 weeks and 47 minutes ago

Yup that's it (cept it's not tri-fold) it's just like a book w/ a front cover and the back has the CD holder. It looks like it will get grungy looking really quick. I love this CD and it has alot of good tunes on it. I'm gonna be spending my day w/ it today again, cuz I had alot of interruptions yesterday.

Dom, Lomp & Famous (Deze krijgt een bijna me dansen) hehe

/me goes get busy today (but for now I'll have to dance in my chair)

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 6 days ago

Okay, so the Dutch is not so fluent anymore. Correct phrasing would be "deze krijgt me bijna aan het dansen" ("this one almost makes me dance", literally: "this gets me almost on the dancing"). The "aan het" + verb construction is for things that are in progress. Like: ik ben aan het eten = I am eating; ik ben aan het typen = I am typing.

Anyway, they make some great tunes. Though not all are that good.

Incredible, Beyoncé has actually made a record that has some spunk. Now if only she could drop her RnB voice.

Okay, who are you and what have you done with Doreen?

// crae_evil / 456 weeks and 6 days ago

But summing things up:

good = 12

okay = 4

crap = 4

Seems like a win.

// craeonics / 456 weeks and 6 days ago

hehe if I had just done it your way I'd have saved myself alot of typing!!!

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 6 days ago

I only know the songs they're released as singles. From this albums that's (in order of release) "Geen Klasse, geen Stijl", "Me Nikes", "Dom, Lomp & Famous" and "Sjonnie & Anita".

// craeonics / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

Well than you're missing out. I think I listened to it too much cuz I dreamed in dutch last night. hehe!

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

Anyways they're cute lil G's but I doubt those two would last an hour on the streets of LA over here...

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

Anyways all that's been on TV over here lately is the drama that's been unfolding w/ Rhianna and Chris (everyone trying to get into their business)

It's so strange that the relational problems of "stars" for some reason need to get maximum exposure in the media. It is as if we, the spectators, live our lives through them.

// craeonics / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

I know I was thinking what in the world is this even on TV for when every second someone is getting beat up. I guess her life is more valuable cuz as a recording artist she's worth more? hehe

I don't know strange world...

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

Regardless, I still don't like her tunes, especially after what she did to the oh so sacred Tainted Love and I have no idea who Chris Brown might be. It rings a bell somewhere, but the name is rather generic.

// craeonics / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

He's no good but alot of ppl go crazy over him on this end. This is his only semi-decent tune (I think anyways)

[link]

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

Ah wait, I know that song. Just your average generic producer back RnB sock puppet, umm, singer.

// craeonics / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

Yes that would be him. hehe

Go to sleep you.

Goedenacht...

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 5 days ago

I'm going through my lil "I'm gonna learn me a new lingo" phase again (which as you know me it last a week and I learn exactly 10 words and then give up)

But dutchy you guys say help like hulp? (which sounds like "hoolp") If I actually said that outloud I would not be able to stop laughing (that sounds funny) even when I hear myself say it in my head I can't stop laughing. Some words are really cool and some are extremely hard and lengthy though in English they are short and easy (well to me anyways) hehe!

But what I don't like is for one word you have like (5) diff ways to say it so it makes it really hard cuz instead of learning the one word from English to Dutch you have to learn that one English word (5) diff ways! That's crazy!!!

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

Checking out some random words:

Some really look cool like North Sea = Noordzee (I've no clue why I think that looks cool but it does!) hehe

But then this one unemployed = werkeloos (which is nuts cuz it sounds like verkelohs) that looks so funny too

Phone number = Telefoonnummer? oh boy, gek

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

"Hulp" doesn't sound like "hoolp", but as the "ulb" in "light bulb". Besides, when you're in trouble you shout "help". The "loos" in "werkeloos" translates as "less" in English, so "werkeloos" literally means "workless". "Telefoon" is "telephone", but we don't abbreviate it to "foon". If we did you'd get "foonnummer". Really not that different from its English cousin.

I'm typing way too much quotes.

* craeonics is listening to: Party Squad ft. six thousand guests - Stuk

// crae_guru / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

Took my dirty dusty car to the car wash so I wassss listening to my dutch CD. hehe!

Now it's total quietness atm...

As for the dutch though now that I hear my CD I understand the accent on "some" words (but your nasty words really reallyyyy sound funny) Do you speak English or do you only speak dutch during your day over there dutchy?

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

Since I only read you in English I can't even get my mind around what you sound like as Dutch. Just strange, like you didn't know who I was when I typed in dutch up there you were like who are you! hehe

I don't picture you speaking dutch and your a dutchy.

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

Yes I think about you too much.

/me goes do alil work today...

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

But can you translate one tune for me? When you have time (cuz I'm curious what they are saying in this one) and I searched all over the net and can't find the lyrics to try to translate it myself w/ those sucky internet translators.

Jouw Pijn, Mijn Pijn (what is "Pijn") Jouw is you right?

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

I don't speak English. If I did I would probably have a terrible, terrible accent.

Can't find the lyrics to that Opposites track (it's no good anyway), but this is the chorus:

# Jouw pijn is mijn pijn / Your pain is my pain

# En jouw strijd is mijn strijd / And your struggle is my struggle

# En jouw shit is mijn shit / And your shit [loanword] is my shit

# En niemand die ons breken kan / And no-one can break us [literally: and no-one who us break can]

The song seems to be about the hardships of life, relationship troubles and what not. Serious topics, no frolicking in this one.

* craeonics is listening to: Wiley - Wearing my Rolex

// craeonics / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

Thank you, that one is my second fav on the CD which I'm begining to wear out but cuz the lingo I keep listening to it cuz my ears are totally confused! hehe

But it's really good...

Dutchy I cannot believe you don't speak English when you type in English you don't even communicate w/ an accent! I mean I don't get plastic or even PKtje sometimes cuz something in their wording is so diff to me but how come I get you perfectly?

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

Well actually come to think about it there are ppl I speak to directly everyday that are English speakers like me and sometimes I don't get them either. hehe

// Doreen / 456 weeks and 4 days ago

I mean I would think since you type in English so well I thought you speak in Englis
