got habanero sauce on my dick

That happened to someone I worked with at my first job when I was in high school (did not happen at work, he just told the story there). Caspaicin is fat soluble, so he cured it by sticking his dick in a tub of sour cream, since it was the first thing he could find.

Update. FWS: My friend works for a game company and there's an audio opening. He's giving me a reference, so I may (at least) get a phone interview.

 

FWP / FWS: I'm having a chat with some engineers later today about maybe taking me on as a developer since I have some coding skills, but I'm way too junior for the skills they require. I would hate for them to take a chance on me and then I turn around and take the audio job. Also, being a developer in the SF bay area makes things a shit ton more affordable than a sound designer...

My company just laid off 40 people yesterday hahaha. I had talked to some developers that were interested in having me on as a technical artist since I have experience with Unity, graphic design, coding skills, etc. However they laid off a technical artist so I don't think they're hiring for that anymore. THE SAGA CONTINUES.

only buying clothes that smell of child workhouse factory tears, feeling not really guilty about it, spilling beef dripping on it & it wont rinse out on a 40cycle

deadlines & procrastinating, see ironing

Last Sunday bassment had a bit o water in it (innit), turns out our sewer line out was clogged and shit came up thru the lowest fixture (toilet in basement). Shit only got worse :emotawesomepm9: in the time since, got the roto rooter dude out here today and lo, the thoroughly rooted 80-y.o. clay sewer pipe out the house is fubar, needs to be replaced, and is 8 feet below grade in our front yahd.  Looking at $5-6K easily, fml

Parallel parking is a struggle.

It's regular parking lot parking where you have to turn into the space that I find awkward as hell.  I can never get the angle reasonable enough that I don't need to reposition myself 2-3 times to avoid damaging the car in the next space, unless it's a really spacious lot.  Thought it was odd that this wasn't part of the road test.  Parallel parking was a lot more intuitive for me for, but I seem to be the minority there.

oof.  

about 18 months ago the main water line to my house broke right outside the basement wall. was around $2600 to fix. they came out w/a ditchwitch drilling thing. parked it at the street and drilled horizontally (like a parabola shape so it went down then came back up half way through the process) into the yard all the way to the basement wall where it drilled right through. I think they have a similar thing for sewer pipes but maybe not.  regardless, expensive pain in the ass but whatyagonnado? nothing.. can't have shit filling up the basement.

FWP1: hair sprouting outta my earlobes.  wtf.  Actually noticed this happening quite a while back, but the rate at which it grows back is alarming.  We're talking pube sized hairs.  I shudder just typing that out.  No idea exactly when this started happening.  Are you 20-somethings dealing with this BS yet?

 

FWP2: got assaulted by watmm's privacy policy/rules a couple times over and then a screen prompting me to upload files appeared.  Had to overcome these obstacles in order to post this.

I'm pretty sure I got the same mother's day card for my mom this year that i did last year.  ? She likes this certain brand of cards that have really nice covers and as a plus have short but sweet sentiments in the inside. All the other mother's day cards have really cheesy drawn out messages that make me want to gag.

So I had this project file that was killing my pc. You know what it feels like. Just harsh noize upon playing due to overload. Idiot me thought that buying an extra 8 Gb of RAM would make it faster, but I didn't notice that the CPU load was 99% which is the problem. So I wasted money on a RAM which didn't help but sort of helps anyway if you're doing other things on your computer besides musics.

Just use the freeze function on tracks you are not working on currently 

FL 11 doesn't have that function as far as I know. You can only render certain tracks in a WAV to ease the CPU load but it's so fucking tedious and I hate doing it, besides I tend to make alterations to the pattern / instrument until the very end

In my early 40s and am on the more hirsute side of the spectrum, so I speak from experience - just come at it with whatever tools you have, tweeze or trim or w/e.  Part of getting older has been switching from "must destroy" mode to ok manage.

NPR's Morning Edition changed their theme song and I am really fucking bummed out about it. I'm usually one to accept change, or at least come to terms with it, but this one is a really hard pill to swallow. It's like seeing an old diner or pub demolished or renovated completely. It's a familiar comfort removed from my morning, one I've had around me since I was a kid.

What's made it hurt even more is that NPR has slipped into this gradual state of increased mediocrity. They've perpetually put out good in-depth features, niche stories and decent arts and & culture coverage but the news content and political coverage went from CSPAN and BBC standards - dry, muted, but substantive and with teeth - to the same complacent and superficial tone of the cable news and American major networks. No more "the world is going to shit, but here's how to at least feel informed about it" it's like "is the world going to shit, and if so why not enjoy it! meet the instagram hashtaggers redefining the idea of corporate media being a bad thing." The new music pairs with that vibe - ersatz of the original coupled with overtly safe and marketed appeal. I hate it.

Do they still use that old Four Tet track for segues?  I like Four Tet even, yet that shit got real tired real fast.  It reminds me of years ago when I'd occasionally tune in to a morning sports talk station *shudders* and they'd do this news banter segment every day, during which the instrumental of Korn's Freak on a Leash would be playing at low volume in the background, every day.  Day after day without fail.  Made me wonder whether the jocks had to endure it as well or if it was just for the listeners.

Anyway your second part is spot on, I don't listen to NPR much anymore but the news coverage definitely feels neutered these days.  Like how Fox made the transition to hardcore pornography so gradually that I barely noticed.

Sugar ants? I had those the other day in my living room feasting off a tortilla chip that had fallen on the floor. If you get rid of the food source they disappear has fast as they came.

i got a tv and it's too big

(currently obsessed with CRT and the 34cm one i found in someone's garbage which was great for awhile has developed some nasty electrical buzzing and whistling, so been keeping an eye out for another better one. i specifically want it really small, i like the vibe and that's what i have space for. they seem rare around here.. finally found one nearby, listed as 34cm.. bought it.. went to pick it up and it's like twice the size, lol. whaddya gonna do)

Is it a flatscreen crt? The later tech ones had hd component and vga ports on. Great picture, so vibrant.

nah neither of these are flatscreen, though the small dying one has component and yess, looks awesome. it'd been many years since i used em, had forgotten how good they look. but i'm fine with composite and even mono audio, just really want 34cm-ish size :)
