board | I'm listening to (2018)

This is unreal! Can you believe it? And how weird will it be when it's 2020 in only two more years?

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 5 days ago

Anyways, not listening to anything yet (cept Dex meowing) but last night I listened to Mariah Carey torture my ears on TV with her historic second chance at Dick Clark's New York's Time Square thingie (my ears still hurt)

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 5 days ago

Okay, now it's time to listen and watch the New Year's Parade on TV, why? cuz that is all that will be on TV all day *sigh*

/me goes jump into 2018...

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 5 days ago

/me pokes

If this thing suddenly works now, I'm going to scream.

// craeonics / 10 weeks and 5 days ago

Maybeeee Tek just likes me better than you? hehe

Marching band playing Katy Perry's firework tune in the parade on TV. (that's it, off to do the laundry) *sigh*

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 5 days ago

That song is god awful. And having a marching band play it only makes it worse.

Tek hates my guts because I've been slacking on the upgrade (and still continue to do so; many moving parts).

// craeonics / 10 weeks and 4 days ago

Then bury it already...

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 4 days ago

Tsk, quitter.

All good comes to those who wait (although sometimes the wait can be a tad long and it implies someone is providi Besng the good). Besides, with skinning being in the state it is right now, there's no rush.

// craeonics / 10 weeks and 3 days ago

I knew I was missing some words, but I somehow did not notice they had moved up a line.

// craeonics / 10 weeks and 3 days ago

Quitter? I'm just assuming you have already thrown in the towel since the state of Tek kinda speaks for itself. Umm, ie: just look at the date of the last news post 2014? And it's a roll of the dice if your post here on this very message board post and not be swallowed up into the void or text be chopped off or garbled up like your own post above. hehe

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 3 days ago

I never quit anything I start. I only put things on the backburner for a bit. Where a bit can reach decades.

Why is there no news on the front page? Hmm, well where exactly is that news then? Skinning seems to be in quite a dire state. Go peek at the WinCustomize forum. It's like a cross between a senior citizen home and a customer support section. They're one step removed from exchanging pics of the grandkids.

// craeonics / 10 weeks and 2 days ago

hehe! Are you seriously still visiting Wincustomize? I can't remember the last time I peeked over there, I think it was when I heard David passed away which was a while back who knows, I'm getting so old myself now I can't even remember!

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 2 days ago

Got to check if there's news every now and then. Move your walker over there and check that forum. It's old people doing old people things.

Switching back to music and into virtual parent mode, six months ago Reichi (rapper from Osaka) looked like this [link], but last month this "Melon Soda" video dropped [link] (shot in your backyard from the look of things) and she looks like she hasn't eaten in the period since. And her voice seems to have dropped too. If I were her parent, I'd be worried. Flow is still good though.

// craeonics / 10 weeks and 1 day ago

They were probably just simply researching some "authenticity" over here for their music (hopefully they didn't get bit by some wolves whilst doing so)

If they returned home quickly after shooting that vid they will be okay cuz they looked "clean" to me still...

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 1 day ago

By the way that shot looks like Hollywood (not LA)

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 1 day ago

If they shot that in LA I think they would have had to have more security but not been able to get it. I can see they blocked off the street for the vid (Hollywood would accommodate but in LA probably not, they would have been on their own)

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 1 day ago

I see sun, hills and palmtrees, so I assume it's California. If there were no hills but flamingos and yachts, I'd assume Miami.

Imagine waking up one morning and finding a film crew in front of your house and a car blocking the road...

Anyways, they shot two videos while they were there, the other is a generic booty video [link] (with some guy flexing his muscles). Rather generic track.

"Generic" is my word of the day.

// craeonics / 10 weeks and 21 hours ago

Not sure what to think about that but it's weird (and they definitely chose a the wrong guy for that body shot) I still say they are simply researching "authenticity" for their booty tunes over here (which is not such a great thing for them)

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 14 hours ago

Most guys (such as you) are attracted to the complete opposite of what they normally rep and they want to be like the booty gals over here?

// Doreen / 10 weeks and 14 hours ago

If you are going to continually annoy me with your Asian girl fetish I need to block it out of my head with something that fills my soul! La la la la laaaaa!


// Doreen / 10 weeks and 14 hours ago

Any fetish exists only in your head, Ms Jelly.

Got some Asian boys for you: Kowichi ft. T-Pablow & DJ Ty-Koh - Day Ones [link] (probably region locked). Not that big on Kowichi and his vocoder, but he does these type of swooping themes well.

Curious enough, I wonder how much it was inspired by this Australian track with the exact same name from this summer: Manu Crook$ - Day Ones [link].

// craeonics / 9 weeks and 6 days ago

In my head? You are probably right now in one of your t-shirt's with their cartoon pictures on them, sitting in a room surrounded by tons of their CDs listening to their music whilst speaking Japanese and reading a Japanese newspaper with YouTube on watching their vids! I even can picture one of them serving you tea in a skimpy waitress costume! hehe

Anyways, don't even try to turn me onto Asian Boy tunes (not gonna happen!)

// Doreen / 9 weeks and 6 days ago

Okay, so you already know how curious I can be (so I peeked) and their music is better than what we currently have playing on the radio over here but I still think that is a shame cuz they are attracted to this mess over here and they are always known for being clean, healthy with honor and grace (that looks strange to me) they also looked/sounded pretty authentic like they are "living" over here somewhere? I can't believe that mess would be going on in Japan's allies too!?

// Doreen / 9 weeks and 6 days ago

Hmm, your second link has some great beats in it too!

// Doreen / 9 weeks and 6 days ago

So I'm sitting here in a three ninjas t-shirt with cartoon pictures on it. That's about it. The news on TV is the regular Dutch news, no CDs in sight and no music playing either, 'cause I typing on this board.

After that, I'll be over on the cat pic sight reading three ninjas news.

Anyways, the little hoodlums in that video are probably on the highway to jail anyway. As to why they find the US rap scene so interesting, can't say. Perhaps they're trying to rebel against the expectation of getting a steady life-long job.

Played some drum 'n bass at work. It's boring as hell (same drum loop all the time), but it took seven hours before the colleagues started complaining. Did run into this killer track: Current Value - Dark Rain [link].

// craeonics / 9 weeks and 5 days ago

So I play that song and as soon as the beat starts, the cat sitting on my lap turns her head around and looks at my netbook with a look of "the hell is that?" on her face.

// craeonics / 9 weeks and 5 days ago

Hmm, that is killer! I like the techy spooky type vibe but around 1:14 it has a Prodigy like vibe (that you probably like)

Speaking of cats my Dex wants me to play chase with him he runs and cuts up the carpet and then hides and I have to chase him and try to catch him (until he gets underneath the couch then when I walk away he comes out and swats my ankle to tag me and runs off. hehe

Tonight I'm dead tired from work so he's pissed off that I don't want to play chase...

// Doreen / 9 weeks and 5 days ago

I have two cats, so daughter tries to play with mother, which does not always work. Mother cat practices old-fashioned child raising, so daughter gets smacked across the nose when she's too clingy.

Get Li'l Dex some small toy mice or marbles and see if he plays with that.

// craeonics / 9 weeks and 4 days ago

Cute, welll I do buy toys dutchy but Dex wants to play he gets bored with his toys and my Mom's cat is too old so he swats back at Dex when Dex tries to play chase with him therefore I'm the one he's stuck getting his exercise with (which ain't much because after he gets a quick burst of energy to play chase and hide and seek he then tires out faster than me!)

// Doreen / 9 weeks and 4 days ago

Got the stupid flu, need some healing vibes: [link]

*cough & sneeze* (sharing the love)

// Dor_evil / 9 weeks and 3 days ago

Ten to one that is going to be a worship tune.

/me clicks...

Yep, seems I was right. So, does that mean you're cured now?

/me goes hide

/me peeks out for a bit

There was some sad news yesterday. One of the three ninjas' guitarists fell of some high spot while stargazing and died a few days ago.

// craeonics / 9 weeks and 3 days ago

Cured? Nope, it's just a reminder for me not to worry if I die (this flu is causing ppl on this side to drop dead) sorry to hear about that guitarists, that part of their tunes is the ONLY part that is good! It's the three marketeers that are so totally annoying!

// Doreen / 9 weeks and 3 days ago

Only old people die of the flu. Now I know you're not one of the young ones anymore but the risk is low. Old people also can't trip over anything without breaking bones, which heal slowly and then things go from bad to worse.

// craeonics / 9 weeks and 2 days ago

Not that kind of flu dutchy, I think we've had something like 35+ deaths already (even kids are dropping from it) it's knocked me out of commission, I might go to the Doctor's but the ER's are overflowing so that is not a good place to be right now...

// Doreen / 9 weeks and 1 day ago

Hmm, but don't you have a doctor doctor? Over here everyone has a doctor and you visit that first and if things are bad, then you are redirected to the hospital. Emergency Room is more for when you break your leg or are in accident.

Anyways, /me sends chicken soup

// craeonics / 9 weeks and 20 hours ago

I have a Doctor but can't get an appt since she is booked solid (hence having to go to ER) but I'm on the mend, yesterday I thought I was going to meet my maker but today I feel a bit better and I'm taking next week off to be sure since everyone has it (including my Mom) so I'm playing nurse on top of everything.

/me grabs your chicken soup

// Doreen / 8 weeks and 6 days ago

See, my virtual chicken soup is working already.

Now theoretically speaking your mother should be taking care of you, not the other way around. I hope the cats are still healthy.

// craeonics / 8 weeks and 5 days ago

Yup, that and this killer lemon & Ginger tea I'm now hooked on...

Mom is going through it fine so far, it's Sammy that is worrying me he's had it for about a month, he relapsed three times already and looks like he is on the mend yet again (but this flu is not normal) and apparently this cat did not make it and he apparently was in excellent health so you really can't say who can fight it and who can't for some strange reason:


// Doreen / 8 weeks and 5 days ago

I think you basically have to watch out for it hitting the chest (which is where flu's like to go once they enter your head) I had one day where I seriously thought I might be meeting my maker cuz I had a strange feeling in my chest but it went away the next day and I'm feeling alot better so I've just been cooking healthy veggie/beef soup for iron and all that and spraying the Hell out of everything, cleaning and chasing the virus out of my house and force feeding them and so far so good (not much else you can do really) the Doctors don't even know what they are doing...

// Doreen / 8 weeks and 5 days ago

I will tell you this, if you even look at anyone over here on this side that has the flu you will catch it because "everyone" is getting it (so you are lucky you cannot look at me)

// Doreen / 8 weeks and 5 days ago

Oh boy, I got up today and feel like I'm sick again? But it feels like a different sick, check this out dutchy:


I've been trying to poke around cuz the Doctors don't have a clue how to fix us back up other then saying it's the flu (which does not help at all)

Not even sure what to do now (I suppose pray again)

Anyways, I will be dropping off the map for few days but don't worry I'll be back to pester you when I feel better mijn dutchy...

// Doreen / 8 weeks and 4 days ago

Well, if the doctors don't know what to do, you can only resort to common sense: eat, sleep and exercise well and try not to stress out. Oh, and wash your hands before eating and don't cough or sneeze in people's face and stuff like that.

/me sends more virtual chicken soup

// craeonics / 8 weeks and 4 days ago

Umm, yeah, I have common sense however real live does not always accommodate common sense therefore you cannot eat, sleep and exercise well and not stress out when you feel like you are knocking at deaths door dutchy. hehe!

Anyways, I got knocked off my feet twice with this stupid flu but I'm back up and my Mom and Sammy look to be back up as well however I spent a day at the vet with my Mom's cat and after various blood test (and them shafting my Mom with a $500 dollar bill) basically her cat has end stage kidney disease so we've been trying to nurse him back again (not sure why since he obviously will never get healed) but I suppose we have to try?

I'm pretty sure while I'm at work tomorrow my Mom will call me up and tell me he passed. Horrible, she's been crying I think even more then when her husband passed!

All these storms in life! But today the sun looks like it's out again (at least for the moment)

// Doreen / 7 weeks and 6 days ago

Your pets are your kids, the attachment is strong.

I see your government has some problems with its budget at the moment, so a lot of federal employees seem to have the day off. Which is very considerate for the sick.

But then again, you work for the county, so no days off for Doreen.

// craeonics / 7 weeks and 5 days ago

Yup, me is County Government employee so no days off. We currently have got the craziest president imaginable (I actually think Oprah Winfrey will be our next president) It is quite the circus in our White House and I still think Abraham Lincoln was the last "real" president we ever had. (that said from someone who don't even know much about politics at all but that is how I feel)

If you pay too much attention to the news and the world you'd simply go crazy along with everyone else, I'd much rather have everyone else think I'm crazy by trying to keep focused on my own personal faith.

// Doreen / 7 weeks and 5 days ago

I find it interesting to see what's going on on this blue sphere of ours. Yes, there's lots of nasty things happening, but mankind is a nasty species. News usually focuses on things that are out of the ordinary, so it's not all that bad.

// craeonics / 7 weeks and 4 days ago

Hmm, not all that bad? Maybe on your end. Over here if put on the news you'll hear about wonderful Fires burning all over possibly coming to get you and your house, mudslides that have killed a bunch of ppl while they were going about their business (because of the fires) what kid got shot and killed that caught in the crossfire of gang activity, what body they found on the side of the freeway, who got raped in the neighborhood while jogging, and this freaking flu that is actually killing you withing 24-48 hours of your first cough! hmm and then we've got this crazy president that has an ego bigger than an elephant with his trigger finger sitting right on the button to start a nuclear war?

Wonderful news, then I get home and my Moms depressed and I ask her what are you watching? She says the news!

I much prefer to walk in forest in silence looking and listening to Gods creation (not look to much or listen to man's creation)

// Doreen / 7 weeks and 4 days ago

News reports abberations. If these were common day occurences it wouldn't be news. You don't see them reporting that the sun goes up, but they will when there's an eclipse.

New music time: Bizzey ft. Kraantje Pappie, Chivv & Yung Felix - Ja [link] (video is a parody of a crap quiz my mother likes).

// craeonics / 7 weeks and 3 days ago

If you are going to use fancy words on me please atleast spell them right so that I can look them up quickly and figure out what you are saying? (It's aberration)

/me goes check out your link...

// Doreen / 7 weeks and 3 days ago

Alright, I've no idea what that was about but I loved it! hehe

Anyways, sorry dutchy about that mess up there I'm in one of my moods dealing with a bunch of things the worse is having to watch my Mom grieving over this cat of hers that looks like a zombie walking dead cat. (It's heart wrenching)

I prayed over the cat before I left for work this morning that he would just pass already peacefully so this could finally be over with (she refuses to put him down)

I just got home and it looks like he might finally pass tonight, if not I might just die first!

// Doreen / 7 weeks and 3 days ago

Pre-emptive RIP cat. The best way to go is to just go. A long sick bed is hard on all parties involved.

/me goes sulk in the corner over getting spelling corrections. Creative license, damnit...

// craeonics / 7 weeks and 2 days ago

Well he is finally gone dutchy he'd been dying for weeks I thought it was never going to end and my Mom is stubborn so I didn't bother to try to tell her what to do (I just made subtle suggestions that she should put him to sleep) but she knew I would support her either way but watching that almost killed me!

/me goes decompress from everything (and then last night at 2:00am we had a 4.1 earthquake as if things have not been hard enough!)

// Dor_zzz / 7 weeks and 2 days ago

The good news is that all bad things are over now. Unless another forest fire happens.

Take your mom out for lunch or dinner at some quiet place, to get her mind off of things (she's probably thinking of your stepfather too now).

// craeonics / 7 weeks and 1 day ago

Yeah, I "know" she is. Today I'm going to start taking her to the gym with me and then I'll take her out to lunch and probably the mall shopping. I most likely will need to exhaust her for a while so she won't have time to think much. Anyways, dank je for letting me come vent on you mijn dutchy...

snuggle, huggles

// Doreen / 7 weeks and 1 day ago

For some reason I'm thinking of 80s leg warmers now...

// craeonics / 7 weeks and 20 hours ago

nuzzle, snuggle, huggie all the same thing = cozy, comfy, safe, cuddle (get a dictionary!)

definitely not leg warmers. hehe!

// Doreen / 7 weeks and 15 hours ago

Okay, I had to look it up myself! Here is the meaning of a snuggle: settle or move into a warm, comfortable position.

"I snuggled down in my sleeping bag"


nestle, curl up, huddle (up), cuddle up, nuzzle, settle

"Kent and Maris snuggled by the fire"

Where in the world you get leg warmers from is beyond me?

// Doreen / 7 weeks and 15 hours ago

The bit where you were taking your mother to the gym.

There's all kinds of bad 80s music to go with that. I'll spare you the examples. But there are bound to be leg warmers in those videos.

And speaking of bad, why is YouTube giving me U2 ads?

// craeonics / 6 weeks and 6 days ago

Leg warmers are probably a British or Dutch thing...

And YouTube is giving you U2 ads cuz you mostly likely typed "you too" somewhere it has gone so far off base on me I hate it now. (but, unfortunately I still have to run to it to check reviews out)

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 6 days ago

I'm listening to the absolute worsest Grammy Award shot everrr what in the world (and I "normally" like hip hop) but this stuff is really bad...

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 6 days ago

It's giving me U2 ads on YouTube on my TV. I never type anything there, everything comes through recommendations.

Now, speaking of hipperdehop, here's a recent booty tune: G-Eazy ft. A$ap Rocky, Cardi B, French Montana, Juicy J & Belly - No Limit (remix) [link]. Sir Mix-A-Lot ain't got nothing on the amount of booty shaking in this clip. Those poor girls look like they're having muscle spasms.

// craeonics / 6 weeks and 5 days ago

In the category "what?":

"Hello craeonics,

We're contacting you today because you purchased a "Give One, Get One FREE" or "Buy One, Get One FREE" Core Membership during DeviantArt's recent promotions.

During the promotions, we experienced a technical issue that resulted in your credit card not being charged for the purchase.

Over the course of the next few days, we will correctly charge the credit card you used. Please note this is not a new charge. We are simply collecting payment for the purchase you already made and for the Core features you already have access to."

Since when do you have to pay for DevArt and why do they think I have done so? Or would do so even. I probably haven't logged in there in over a decade.

Good luck charging that non-existant credit card for that non-existing purchase.

// craeonics / 6 weeks and 5 days ago

hehe! /me smacks the Hell out of you for looking at all that booty shaking!

Anyways, yeah, I got the same thing popping up on my phone today at work and was surprised since I've never purchased anything from them nor do I have any credit card on file with them. But when I got home I had this:

Oops! Please Ignore Our Last Email

Hello dor,

You may have just received an email from us titled "Notice Regarding Delayed Core Membership Charge."

That email was sent to you in error, and you will not be charged. This is embarrassing, but you can completely disregard that notice.

We sincerely apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Mondays, right? Seriously, though, we won't let this happen again.

Thank you,

—DeviantArt Staff

Was strange though getting something from "DeviantArt" just as strange as when I get things once a year or so from StarDock. Talk about a blast from the past...

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 5 days ago

I don't think I've ever gotten an email from DevArt. My IMAP goes back to 2010 and there's nothing from them until this.

We're missing out on that Delayed Core Membership!

// craeonics / 6 weeks and 4 days ago

I've got several emails from DeviantArt, everytime someones tried to guess my password to log in it sends me an email. (I get that mess constantly from everywhere) I also have been apparently signed up on a ton of stupid places which I think is done by a bot or something so I get military, political, fitness you name it emails (junk mail) from whomever or whatever is signing up all over the internet! Drives me insane unsubscribing all day long!

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 4 days ago

Your lord and saviour invented spam filters for that. My spambox currently holds lots of emails from Russian women who think I'm the cutest guy on the planet and have seen my pics on unknown site X.

You'd have to be incredibly dumb to fall for that. But spammers only need a minute amount of people to take the bait and there's plenty of dim lights out there.

// craeonics / 6 weeks and 3 days ago

Russian? (I would have expected Japanese women from XXX sites?)

/me runs...

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 3 days ago

Actually, my problem is different than yours what I keep having to deal with (for years now) is somebody always trying to figure out my password to my mail (and DevArt) what happens with my mail acct is that after three attempts it locks "me out" and I have to manually unlock my mail acct by having a text sent to my phone to identify myself and unlock it. I contacted Apple and they cannot disclose who is doing it by their IP but I told them at least do something to make them stop! They can see but won't disclose it to me! Been going on for years and it frustrates me but I WONT change my email address cuz it's my name! Totally annoying as Hell. They these bots that sign you up on a ton of stupid websites it's ridiculous...

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 3 days ago

I'm not so sure if they sign you up versus just buying lists of email addresses and spamming those. I get spam on very old and otherwise unused addresses.

Anyway, locking your account is silliness. They should block by IP and expand that to subnets (IP ranges) if it continues.

New music Doreen will hate: Erebos - The Arc of Genocide [link]. Growly girl on this one is one of the guitar players from Galmet, which is unfortunately on hiatus. The CGI on this video is rather no-budget, but hell, it's all about the loud music.

// craeonics / 6 weeks and 2 days ago

Oh that is so totally disgusting!

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 2 days ago

I so knew you'd like it.

Speaking of goodness, I need to get me some more three ninja t-shirts. Unfortunately they're all on the limited side of limited so the only way is through scalpers on eBay that add at least 100% markup, and more often than not multiple factors thereof. Three digits for a t-shirt is sillyness.

// craeonics / 6 weeks and 1 day ago

Speaking of goodness? Whatchu mean? Speaking of goodness means this:


// Doreen / 6 weeks and 1 day ago

Hmm, look at the name of that artist. Someone is obviously trying to profit from my fame (or infamy).

Anyways, has your flu situation improved by now?

// craeonics / 6 weeks and 21 hours ago

He's just a Christian Hip Hop singer (I only like two of his tunes, he's zo zo)

As for the flu, nope it's all over the place and scary because it is not the normal flu dutchy, two of my friends at work one 26 the other 37 caught it the 26 yo was in the emergency room last weekend the 37 yo spent 2 weeks in the hospital and almost dies because it hit her lungs. Actually kids as young as 12 yo have died from this strain of flu. I'm still nervous about though everyone in my family except my brother has caught it and it seems to come back a second time in a different strain. It's like it's out to kill you when it jumps on you. I personally fought back when it ran through my house, I ran around cleaning and spraying disinfectant like a crazy person and broke out my instapot and began cooking and force feeding us all to keep our strength up (even though we could hardly walk or stand up) It was BAD.

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 16 hours ago

Yikes! I hate to read the news (but sometimes you have to in order to know what is going on) apparently here in the states they are reaching closer to 2000 deaths (127 of them here by me) but the weird this is that ppl under the age of 65? (which is totally freaky)

You start out with the typical cough and sore throat, then within 24 to 48 hours you're septic and in respiratory failure alot have gone to the ER but sent home with the Dr. saying it's just the flu go home and rest or they give you an antibiotic and send you home but it's a roll of the dice if you will be the one that will die from it. Very strange flu...

// Doreen / 6 weeks and 16 hours ago

The good news is that if you got it and got better, you now have resistance to this particular strain.

It's weird though, I read a scifi novel the other day, which was about some evil group releasing a type of flu on the world which would only affect people in their 20-40s or so. I bet that author is going "ha, I told you so" right now.

// craeonics / 5 weeks and 6 days ago

With the way this flu is hitting everyone as crazy as it sounds I think it's germ warfare from an enemy! hehe

Seriously who knows, it's definitely not the normal flu.

// Doreen / 5 weeks and 6 days ago

Check this out, today is the super bowl thingie and even Pink has the flu and she is supposed to perform at the super bowl today:


// Doreen / 5 weeks and 6 days ago

One of the most soothing tunes ever: [link]

/me jumps into this last day off work (can't believe how fast the weekends go!)

// Doreen / 5 weeks and 6 days ago

I sense worship tunes.

It's curious how they always cover the Super Bowl on the news, but only the halftime show. Not a second of the game is shown.

// craeonics / 5 weeks and 5 days ago

Which is good cuz I only watch it for the halftime show: [link]

// Doreen / 5 weeks and 5 days ago

Justin Timberlake playing Prince... No, I'll pass. I read somewhere the other day that Prince was no fan of this holograph stuff anyway.

// craeonics / 5 weeks and 4 days ago

Nah, he was just performing all his old tunes it was alot better than Beyonce's performance when she performed her halftime one year (which was a total disappointment)

// Doreen / 5 weeks and 4 days ago

Beyonce is probably busy being mom these days.

New music Doreen will hate: Band-Maid - Domination [link]. For some reason the volume on the video is really low, so I still have no idea what it sounds like. I've had the album on pre-order for months anyway.

Which reminds me, I still have three of their CD's to rip.

So much to do, so little time.

// craeonics / 5 weeks and 3 days ago

Oh boy... I think I got jussss the thing to turn you on: [link]

// Doreen / 5 weeks and 3 days ago

Why anyone would watch talent shows is beyond me.

MTV likes to push random new bands, by playing their videos constantly (during the limited hours they play videos). The latest one has a crazy video: Superorganism - Everyone wants to be famous [link]. I'm drawing a complete blank on what it sounds like. I can only remember the cat pics.

// craeonics / 5 weeks and 2 days ago

Why would anyone watch talent shows? Maybe your talents shows suck but sometimes over here we get to see things like this once in a while that blow your mind:


// Doreen / 5 weeks and 2 days ago

It's more like "let's all laugh at these idiots, oh, and here is some fool we can bend to our every desire and cash in on". For the casual viewer it is perhaps a bonding experience, like "oh this singer was so good", "well, have you seen the one last week, I hope they go far".

// craeonics / 5 weeks and 1 day ago

I don't watch it ritualistically but when I do happen to watch it I don't watch it for the singers I watch it for things like the above link (crazy music, dancing, light shows etc)

// Doreen / 5 weeks and 1 day ago

Ritualistically would involve special robes, incense and chanting.

I took a wrong turn somewhere and ended up at Japanese Milli Vanilli: Hiroonmi Tosaka ft Crazyboy & Afrojack [link]. I'm still looking for Afrojack, but I suspect he provided the bleeps and horns. Ofcourse this has gotten over a million views in a mere two weeks.

// craeonics / 5 weeks and 20 hours ago

Okay now that one was quite awesome (though a portion of that theme is a rip of another tune I've heard somewhere)

// Doreen / 5 weeks and 15 hours ago


Hmmm, La la la laaaaa! Maybe some salty air today!

Your grace abounds in deepest waters

Your sovereign hand

Will be my guide

Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me

You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name

And keep my eyes above the waves

When oceans rise, my soul will rest in Your embrace

For I am Yours and You are mine

// Doreen / 5 weeks and 14 hours ago

You thought it was quite awesome because it had good music (doubtful) or because they were all strapping young lads. Video was at least Michael Jackson "Beat it" inspired.

// craeonics / 4 weeks and 6 days ago

What are you jelly? Nah, it was not the beat it tune it was something else but since I don't remember the name of it I think it would take me forever to find it.

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 6 days ago

I hate it when that happens! It's the beat that kicks on at 2:10

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 6 days ago

[link] (old tune) but sounds like kinda?

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 6 days ago

Dear oh dear, Art of Noise. That's when dinosaurs still roamed the earth.

Meanwhile, new Dre & Snoop - The Coming [link] (haven't heard it yet, saw it pop up under "new videos").

// craeonics / 4 weeks and 5 days ago

Lemme seeee, when that particular tune was born you say it was when dinosaurs still roamed the earth? (it was 1985) and you were born almost a decade "earlier" then that, sooo hmmm, what was roaming the earth at that time then?

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 5 days ago

And since I was born more than a decade before you were I will stop capping on you then. hehe!

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 5 days ago

That snoop & Dre tune is yuk! Funny, I finally got around to watching a flick called "All Eyez on Me" recently about Tupac Shakur's life it was kinda interesting when he got on board with Death Row Records. I didn't even know Snoop and Dre had issues with Death Row Records when Dre broke off from them for some reason. It was a good movie.

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 5 days ago

Probably money reasons. And if Dre goes, so does his pupil Snoop.

When I was young dinosaurs certainly were on TV. You can't be saying those Dinobots in Transformers were a lie... /me goes sob in the corner

// craeonics / 4 weeks and 4 days ago

All I can remember when I was young (as far as TV cartoons) was getting up and pouring myself a bowl of cereal and turning on Scooby Doo and watching that until 6:30am and then grabbing my books and running off to school. (as boring as that sounds what I would not give to go back to those days)

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 4 days ago

Kids only have home work to worry about. At least, that's what I would think.

And then I see my niece (three years old), who gets worked up over things, like keeping her jacket on in the car because it's only a short ride and then is sobbing in the back, going "it's not fair". Or goes sob in the corner when uncle crae is sitting on her favourite spot, instead of just telling me. I'm not psychic, kid.

The struggle is real.

// craeonics / 4 weeks and 3 days ago

You'll blink a few times and the next thing you know your niece will be knocking on uncle crae's door asking if she can come live with you because your sister will not let her start wearing makeup...

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 2 days ago

Other niece (cousin's daughter). I have a ton of nieces. And they're all into Frozen for some reason.

/me goes put some extra locks on the door

// craeonics / 4 weeks and 1 day ago

Well then when you babysit all those nieces you already know what vid to pull out for them!

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 1 day ago

I've been listening to this girl's music and you can just feel what a spirit she has but I seen just "one" interview that she did and it confirmed it. Yikes! She's unreal...


Most definitely not your cup of tea, but boy! [link]

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 1 day ago

This one is awesome! [link]

Only prob with good worship music it's got that nasty country flavor that leaves a nasty aftertaste in my mouth. hehe!

Still the lyrics are out of this world!

// Dor_worship / 4 weeks and 1 day ago

Lyrics? What happened to "I don't listen to lyrics"?

Anyways, they changed clothes between videos, but not locations, nor did they change melodies (it sounds quite in the same vein). The singer sounds like a lesser Adele. I hope she can keep singing like this, because it seems she is straining her voice a bit and that never ends well in the long run.

// craeonics / 4 weeks and 21 hours ago

You already know that I never listen to lyrics in bangin bass tunes (only worship tunes open up a certain layer in my ear drums)

And I actually thought she was Adele! They play her tunes on secular radio stations, she's all over the regular radio stations now.

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 15 hours ago

So hard to find female Christian artists and I was trying to find that song when I heard it on the radio and searched it out by the name of the song (expecting to see it was Adele, seriously) anyways, she's pretty good and so is this other girl:


Course, 95% of the time I'm listening to the normal stuff on the radio which contaminates my ear drums. hehe

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 15 hours ago

Last one cuz there is literally only three female artists that I can find that are top in this genre:


I'm not sure why it is so hard to find "good" worship music (or why it always has a country flavor to it?)

// Doreen / 4 weeks and 15 hours ago

I can't hear your country tunes over all the guitars coming out of my TV. But it all fits in, does it not? You want to retire to Oregon, and at the same time you listen to Country music.

/me runs

// crae_evil / 3 weeks and 6 days ago

Probably so, if you want to live way out in the boonies your music taste might change, and you? Are you craving the orient or sushi yet?

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 6 days ago

Holiday on this side of the Ocean so that means me is off and cleaning (as usual, stupid cloths & dishes just don't stay clean!!!)

My fav radio station is getting stale and all the tunes are beginning to sound the same:


// Doreen / 3 weeks and 5 days ago

You need more Jesus in your life.

Our Lord an Saviour delivered three ninja t-shirts #9 [link] and #10 [link] today and it slipped right past customs. I have enough of their shirts, I can spread the gospel by wearing 'em weekly.

New ghetto tunes for Doreen: Jacin Trill & Bokoesam – Nikes [link] (not very interesting, and the video makes no sense).

// craeonics / 3 weeks and 5 days ago

Well, those two shirts actually don't look too bad? And judging by your music don't you worship Buddha?

Umm, that Jacin Trill vid looks like a complete commercial?

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 5 days ago

Back in the good ole days the radio stations such as Power 106 played this goed stuffezzzz:

Mmm mmm mmmmm!


// Doreen / 3 weeks and 5 days ago

Yikes, there is Nate Doggg when he was still alive =(

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 5 days ago

Would you believe I stillll have no clue what they are singing about in that tune but that bangin beat is insane! (still love it)

Hard to believe Nate is already gone though: [link]

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 5 days ago

Check this out, I bet he has no clue what that tune is about either but it automatically makes you dance! [link]

/me goes do the crip walk and vacuum...

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 5 days ago

Introducing: David McCallum (yes, the actor): The Edge [link] (1967). Sounds a tad familiar perhaps.

The only hit Nate Dogg had over here was Regulate. That whole wobble wobble style never crossed the Atlantic.

// craeonics / 3 weeks and 4 days ago

What!??? Is there any originality left in this world!!! You mean Next Episode is a rip from that old fossil you dug up? And by the way I've never heard that tune before is that from your side of the Ocean or something? But at least they improved the tune by increasing the speed and bringing out the good bits of it (adding more coolness to it)

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 4 days ago

Dre is a bit of a thief when it comes to his melodies. Next Episode added a modest beat and a bit of rap. Other than that, it's the same song. He has more songs like this, but this is the most obvious example.

// craeonics / 3 weeks and 3 days ago

David McCallum, by the way, was in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (if I recall correctly), which is from your neck of the woods. I only saw it in reruns here many years later.

// craeonics / 3 weeks and 3 days ago

My neck of the woods? Hmm, I must have been busy watching Scooby Doo or something (don't know what that is)

/me kicks Dr. Dre for being such a rip-off artist!

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 3 days ago

Series about spies. Like James Bond, but as a TV series. Quite amusing, but very dated if you watch it now (though probably not as dated as Knight Rider which is nigh unwatchable these days).

Shop I import my CDs from sents me alerts whenever a new release is available for pre-order. I got one today about a new Bridear mini album. So I go and try to decipher the Japanese description [link] and I read: "progression from heavy metal to hard rock".

Argh, don't tell me they've gone soft. I know one of their guitarists left last year over a disagreement of the direction to take. Hell, I'm going to pre-order the thing anyway, so I'll find out in April.

// craeonics / 3 weeks and 2 days ago

Boy, that is loyalty. You still ordered it!

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 2 days ago

Collector's habit. If I start with something and like it, I'll get everything. I mean, I still buy every Ulver release, even though they sound nothing like they did back in the days (not very interesting these days, easy listening old fossil stuff).

In fact, I think I'm behind a release or two. This thing with that shop that never sent me those CDs I ordered has messed up my "Western" music buying habits.

Ofcourse, said shop still exists and will gladly take your orders, even though it hasn't been updated in years.

/me shakes fist at the heavens

// craeonics / 3 weeks and 1 day ago

I'd stay away from lil shady shops like that I will only order merchandise online if it is a huge reputable store.

/me trust no one (I don't have to be burned more then once to learn my lessons in life)

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 1 day ago

I ordered from that shady little shop for over fifteen years with no problems whatsoever. Something must have happened there and whatever it was, it's not good (every review of them these days is people complaining about unfulfilled orders and no response).

That being said, I still need to order what I ordered there elsewhere, otherwise I'm never going to get it.

// craeonics / 3 weeks and 20 hours ago

Did the charges go through on your credit card? Normally they don't charge the cards until the order ships. (I'm just curious if they grabbed everyone's money without fulfilling the orders?)

// Doreen / 3 weeks and 13 hours ago

Nobody uses credit cards around these parts. The money is unrecoverable.

But it's not so much about the money and more about the breach of trust and the fact that that site is still up.

Anyways, I should go rip the CDs that I do have. They've been accumulating dust for many moons now... [insert complaint about "too few hours in a day" here]

// craeonics / 2 weeks and 6 days ago

No credit cards? So how in the world are you paying for online things?

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 6 days ago

Go through local shops using local payment methods.

To import stuff from Japan directly, I had to resuscitate my moribund PayPal account, of which I had forgotten both the password and the answer to the "secret message" thing. I add funds to that through the exact same local payment methods I use elsewhere.

After some deliberation, I did get a credit card so I could watch wrestling from Japan, because they don't accept PayPal. That's basically the only thing I use it for. Most international stuff is PayPal.

// craeonics / 2 weeks and 5 days ago

OMG! Japanese wrestling? You mean that sumo wrestling? (well actually I hate wrestling but sumo wrestling is just so strange it is hard "not" to look at it!)

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 5 days ago

Sumo is great fun actually. It's very fast. A single bout usually lasts only a few seconds. I haven't seen it in years.

But no, I mean pro-wrestling. Women's pro-wrestling, which is much faster and intenser than men's wrestling (which is more about either power moves or acrobatics).

// craeonics / 2 weeks and 4 days ago

Okeee so nowwww you are not only obsessing over lil ninjas in super short maid uniforms, now you are watching them wrestle in thongs!?

/me smacks the living Hell out of you!

*insert jealous message board wife here!*

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 4 days ago

Way too easy to bait.

Sumo looks like this: [link] (skip around a bit). A match is over as soon as a competitor touches the ground with something else than his feet or is forced out of the ring. The reason they're so fat is so they can't be moved that easily. But look at how fast they move. There's muscle below those flaps.

Joshi (Japanese women's wrestling) looks like this: https://i.redd.it/lnbtdw224lg01.gif, though crazy bridging like this is her specialty. It's not bikini models pulling hairs like 90s "wrestling" in the US.

// craeonics / 2 weeks and 3 days ago

And I forgot that the board does not auto-link single character subdomains...

// craeonics / 2 weeks and 3 days ago

I know what sumo looks like and there is just way too many things that look wrong about it however, just like a nasty car accident on the freeway you HAVE to look at stare at it for weird disgusting curious reasons. (Sumo is just like that) strange that one guy didn't even look Japanese on that link you dropped? I mean he had the body of one but not the head?

As for that .gif if that is what they look like then carry on, me puts my claws back in...

(surprised she didn't break her back)

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 3 days ago

I haven't watched sumo in ages, but last time I did, there were a number of wrestlers from all over the world. Back in the days a number of their grand champions (yokozuna) were from Hawaii. There's a also a number from Mongolia (not terribly distinct from Japanese, really).

Some women's wrestler's look like they do sumo: [link] (jokes aside, she's a legend that has had a thirty year career).

Meanwhile, I wake up this morning, turn on the faucet and nothing. No warm water. I check the kitchen. No warm water there either. Cold water fine, warm water nothing. I check my heater. No problem there. Switch the thing off and on, still nothing. Call the company that does the maintenance, and the lady says "maybe the pipes are frozen". And I'm like "how can an indoor warm water pipe be frozen? I'm on the fourth floor...".

// craeonics / 2 weeks and 2 days ago

Yikes! Well she won't be a legend for too much longer with all that weight on her. Most Sumo wrestlers have short careers and die in their early 40's (because of their weight) I'm shocked that they don't either care or realize that their health is more important and they shouldn't mess with their bodies like that?

Anyways, if your pipes were frozen I would think that there would be no water coming out at all so me guesses that there is "something" wrong with your water heater.

/me tosses you my fuzzy blankee, because according to your weather you are degrees cooler then my temps over here, and I'm freezing already! (but I am "always cold")

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 2 days ago

Where did my 40 degrees go? Anyways, it's currently 62 here and it says 22 degrees where you are.

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 2 days ago

The filter has a developed a thing against special characters. I can't remember coding that, so it must have mutated somehow.

Anyways, it's minus four right now, so still no warm water. The curious thing is that my cold water is unaffected. I did notice that the pipe runs along the outer wall and that there's an intense cold emanating from the floor where it runs.

I suspect my idiot downstairs neighbours are not home at have switched of the heater (which should never happen, it should be put on anti-freeze mode).

Anyways, no warm water day two. Temperatures should go up from now on, so I'll have to sit this out and hope that was the actual problem. Cold water showers...

// craeonics / 2 weeks and 1 day ago

Torture, if my water heater goes out and I'm up at 4:30 to get ready for work and I have no hot water to take my shower guess who will be calling off sick. Good luck with that!

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 1 day ago

/me drops this blast from the past which has the smoothest beats Brandy released. Mmmm mmmm mmmmm!

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 1 day ago

Would be nice to have an edit button which could possibly reduce the number of my post dutchy!!!


// Doreen / 2 weeks and 1 day ago

Blast from the past? Not my past. I was wondering what happenend to Brandy, but this one never crossed the Atlantic.

An edit button would be nice, but it has priority below proper unicode support, so I can type Cyrillic and Japanese and you can type the accent on the last e of Beyonce without the board eating your post (but this requires a 90% rewrite of the backend), and improved linkification. And perhaps tags. Tags are nice.

Besides, three posts in a row is your signature.

In better news, yesterday afternoon I turned on the warm water and steady dripping happened. So I let the faucet on gradually the dripping went to drizzle and then a tiny stream and then the ice blockade burst and I had warm water again.

I still think it's crazy that an in-house warm water pipe can freeze.

// craeonics / 2 weeks and 21 hours ago

I was wondering too what happened to her? Well motherhood. Which of course changes us and takes our innocence/naiveness somewhat away (so she looks a bit different)


// Doreen / 2 weeks and 14 hours ago

Boy, I forgot how good she was...

/me goes dig up her dusty (and probably scratched) CD's


I cannot believe you had a frozen pipe? I thought it was a broken water heater. Which means you will most likely have this as an ongoing problem dutchy.

// Doreen / 2 weeks and 14 hours ago

Motherhood does not mean you're out of the game for well over a decade. Lemmesee... Funny, she's around my age. From the looks of things, she's more focussed on her acting career.

Anyways, yes, the pipe was apparently frozen. The thing runs inside of my house entirely, so how could it possibly freeze. My theory is that the neighbours downstairs were away and had shut down their heater (you don't shut down your heater, but they're not from around here, so they probably don't know). And as a result it was probably freezing in their house. And since the pipes are below my floor and above their ceiling, they probably were affected.

// craeonics / 1 week and 6 days ago

Umm, sometimes it does, and it could be the issue was the Father of her daughter that put her out of commission for a while (who knows) Anyways, I think her daughter is about 16 now in that game you cannot just get up and go and do whatever you want without messing up the kid because kids need stability.

Did you get to speak to your neighbors to explain to them what happened? If not, you can expect it to happen again.

// Doreen / 1 week and 6 days ago

I've never even seen these neighbours. The previous owner sold his apartment to some housing firm that rents it out to temp workers. I deeply resent this practice, but it's completely legal, so nothing I can do about it.

// craeonics / 1 week and 5 days ago

Well, you could move? Otherwise you will have a never ending circus of new neighbors.

// Doreen / 1 week and 5 days ago

I can't move. House prices have gone through the roof. It's very strange, the mortgage rate is very low (2% ish), so it costs me very little to maintain this house, but because prices have sky-rocketed (20% last year), I can't affort anything of same or larger size. In decent neighbourhoods ofcourse.

Speaking of ghettos, new tunes for Doreen: $hirak ft. SBMG - Beng [link] (featuring wannabe gangsters).

// craeonics / 1 week and 4 days ago

Yes you can. What you don't realize is that the value of "your" house has gone through the roof as well. I just found that out as a matter of fact because my Mother hates the house I bought less than a year ago so I told her I'm never home since I'm at work and Sammy is either at College or work now so it should be a place where "she" is happy so I told her if you are not happy I'll put it on the market and when it sells we will find somewhere better.

I signed the papers and then took my Mother out to lunch and when we came home the agent called and said the house sold (cash deal) it sold in 30 mins. I only put 20,000 down and I doubled my money so now we have to be out in 30 days! I'm probably either going to rent or if God opens up the door to the "right" house for her I will buy again. I can't stop working for at least another 10 years so I can't move to Oregon yet if that is the way I go once I quit working my brother might even take my Mom and Sammy will eventually fly the coop to go to University with Gino so at that time I will finally get what "I" want to buy at that time (If God willing)

For me it has always been (like that Rolling Stones tune) something to the affect never getting what I want but getting what I need. But maybe someday I'll get what I want...

// Doreen / 1 week and 4 days ago

Wannabe G's or not that tune is goed!

/me bookmarks that one for when I need to dance and clean!

// Doreen / 1 week and 4 days ago

Maybe you should let your mother pick the new house.

I refuse to participate in this crazy rat race, so I'm going to sit it out until house prices come crashing. I expect I'll be moving to one of those six sided miniature houses everyone ends up in before the prices comes down though.

// craeonics / 1 week and 3 days ago

Well, it will have to be a compromise but since we are both like night and day this will be challenging! hehe

As for you sitting it out, the longer you wait the more value you will have built up in your house. Just having one is money in the bank. Having seen the profit I will have makes me think I should just flip houses!

// Doreen / 1 week and 3 days ago

Flipping houses is a very lucrative business. Everyone needs a house, so there will always be customers.

It's also a rather dirty business, I'd say. They're one step up from used car salesmen.

// craeonics / 1 week and 2 days ago

I was just kidding silly! You know I'm completely brainless with all that stuff (and basically everything) I just walk this journey with faith and that's it...

You know when I went to buy this house the first time I hit a road block and I backed out even though I could have moved forward to fight the road block (but I felt maybe it was not the right time) a year later my step Father dies and I grab my Mom and this house was still waiting for me and when I went through all the signing of docs the second time the agents said wow! if you knew how many people tried to get that house and each time it fell apart right before closing, they said the house had my name on it. So here I am thinking okay, if the house sat that long and we've been living in it now for almost a year that means since the house is no longer brand new it will sit on the market for at least a year or more before I have to deal with moving and bam! 30 mins it sold.

I still cannot believe it dutchy but once again I feel things happen at their own proper timing (you can't control certain things in life)

Now I'm praying God opens up things fast for me because I was just not prepared for this! I've got several appts. to look at rentals and also houses for sale with my Mom tomorrow. Say some prayers for us!

// Doreen / 1 week and 2 days ago

Going by your past track record, it will be fine. You're the fastest mover I know. Over here, these things take many months.

// craeonics / 1 week and 1 day ago

It's not the moving that is the issue dutchy it's the timing that I need to be Divine. I need "closing" over here to be in perfect timing with the "opening" and possible "closing" (if I am able to purchase) with where I am moving that is the stressful part.

Anyways, since this began I've been looking like a maniac and I completed the last few this morning so I've seen enough options to decide upon. There was only (1) that I want and my Mom really liked and it was too perfect (so I'm not even going to let myself think that one will happen)

// Dor_zzz / 1 week and 1 day ago

I should also note that you've done this moving dance, including the opening and closing steps, so many times now, that your are a master at it. It always seems to have worked out in the past.

Cue Bobby McFerrin - Don't worry be happy [link]

// craeonics / 1 week and 21 hours ago

Not on both ends? Rent to rent (I could do blind folded) rent to own I've obviously done but sell to own will be challenging closing docs on both ends will be quite the experience! Anyways, I've no idea why I worry so much whatever will be will be.

I've never liked that tune up there it always annoys me for some reason...

/me goes find one of your dutch ghetto tunes to dance with the vacuum and get busy today.

// Doreen / 1 week and 16 hours ago

I think Public Enemy took offense to Don't Worry Be Happy in Fight the Power [link] (1989), which would ofcourse require you to listen to the lyrics. Then again, they're whole thing is taking offense to the status quo.

// craeonics / 6 days and 21 hours ago

They're, their, there, my fingers can't handle these homonyms...

// craeonics / 6 days and 21 hours ago

Hmm, I've no clue what he is singing about though the beats sound cool and I spotted Brooklyn (where I was hatched) anyways, it seems you want to annoy me with tunes on top of my clock being pushed up an hour! Why do they have to keep messing with the stupid time!!!

// Doreen / 6 days and 15 hours ago

I think this is the same tune? This is where I think I heard it before: [link]

// Doreen / 6 days and 15 hours ago

"Fight the power" was used in or a theme song of Spike Lee's movie "Do the right thing" (1989), which is about a riot in some urban neighbourhood on a hot summer day.

The song in that "Bruce Almighty" movie is Snap's "The power" [link] (1990).

Meanwhile I scored another three ninja shirt [link]. Going by discussions on favourite t-shirts, this is one of the most sought after ones. And I have it. My preciousss...

I'm a bit on a slippery slope on what I'm willing to pay for these things. Ridiculous prices if you didn't get it first-hand.

// craeonics / 5 days and 12 hours ago

I've never head that tune before until that movie so I can only associate that sound with that movie. hehe!

That was one of my favorite movies.

T-shirt doesn't look too bad but me thinks you've got enough of them now, how many of em do you need!!!

// Doreen / 5 days and 5 hours ago

I only have, um, eleven... For some reason a lot of the new ones look completely generic and don't feature Kagami artwork, like this one. Which means I'm not rushing to get those.

Snap! was big over here in the early 90s. One of the many singer+rapper backed by producer bands.

// craeonics / 4 days and 12 hours ago

I cannot believe Craig Mack died today!? Flava in ya ear was the most delicious tunes my ears ever heard! (guess God wants to listen to some hip-hop rap)

// Doreen / 4 days and 6 hours ago

By the way, I think having eleven of the same band's t-shirts is a sign that you are seriouslyyy over obsessed with them...

// Doreen / 4 days and 6 hours ago

Yeah, so they should hurry up and release a new album already. It's been two years since the last one, so it's about time.

/me not know this Craig Mack, I do know a "return of the Mack" song, but that was the first one I heard of that Mack, so it was not much of a return for me.

// craeonics / 3 days and 12 hours ago

Classic old stuffezzz: [link]

// Doreen / 3 days and 4 hours ago

Sounds good. Never heard this before. I don't think he ever made it to this side of the pond.

// craeonics / 2 days and 12 hours ago

I think I heard this one first before the original and most likely was the first tune to turn me on to hip-hop/rap: [link]

Anyways, was sad to hear he passed already, he was clean as far as I know so it must have been some underline health issue.

// Doreen / 2 days and 6 hours ago

Judging by who else is in that last video, I see one shooting victim. Very much an occupational hazard if you did hiphop in the 90s.

Judging from wiki [link], his rap career was thwarted by backstage politics of a certain Mr Daddy and Mr Biggie. Dog eat dog world. Which for name reasons alone reminds me of this song [link]

// craeonics / 1 day and 21 hours ago

Not really much to do with hiphop in the 90s but rather the later part of your comment of dog eat dog world. I did some poking around to see what he was about and there was not too much cept apparently he was searching for some peace and meaning to life and found God so he may have had a peaceful exit at least and hopefully (since I've not died yet) is in peace with the presence of the creator of this rock floating in space.

// Doreen / 1 day and 16 hours ago

More like he went crazy in his latter life. Back in the days people went into monastaries to find peace and quiet (or that's where they shipped people with problems to). This seems to have been similar.

Which reminds me of how one of the Run DMC guys now goes by Rev Run. Even had a TV-series starring him and his 120 children (slight exaggeration). Every episode ending with him sitting in his bathtub texting some sort of life wisdom.

// craeonics / 20 hours and 36 minutes ago

Really? I've never seen that TV series...

Anyways, who doesn't go a little crazy later in life? We chase our tails working and toiling and toiling and working then we suddenly look up and realize we are approaching the end of our life and the house & car payments finally end so therefore we finally own everything we've been toiling for our entire lives and then there's that "Wait a minute! Whatchu mean I can't take that stuff with me when I die!??? hehe

// Doreen / 16 hours and 22 minutes ago

I seriously think movie stars and most musicians have the hardest times coming to term with their life.

// Doreen / 16 hours and 21 minutes ago
