Look what I made! / Review Crew!
« on: April 04, 2007, 07:05:28 »
I strongly disagree with your saying that reviewing can take as little time as 'only a few minutes'.  Reviewing takes a long time;  you have to factor in listenning to the song several times to pull out as many aspects out of it as you can to talk about.  It's important to thorough if you are evaluating something, especially for music.  It also takes a long time to organize your thoughts, and then another good while to actually write down everything you want to talk about into a coherent presentation that people will find interesting to read.  Reviewing is a task that you have to commit yourself to.

But anyway, yeah, a set of active reviewers looks good for the site, so get out there and start reviewing!  :D

As for me, I'm essentially using the lack-of-time/too-busy excuse that everybody hates to account for my not having reviewed in years.  (my later reviews weren't very well written anyway, in my opinion.)  I do try to comment on tunes every now and then with the commenting system.  That, I can agree that it can be done in a few minutes.  :)

@Jojo:  Talk to m0d about joining the reviewing crew.  I'm not sure if there is a form up to apply to be a reviewer yet (you could look around for it I guess).  It was one of the last things on the list of stuff to take care of when the renewal of the site, if I remember correctly, so there may not be anything there yet.  Usually reviewer applicants were required to write a 'test review' assigned by an admin.

Well, now I don't think you can comment on your own songs, regardless of whether you are quoting someone or not.

But, on a brighter note, I put up what I said here as comments to your songs on the archive.  I changed my words slightly for some of them, but essentially I said the same thing.  I had to think up some numbers (ratings) to put with the comments too, I suppose.  Have a look!  :D

EDIT:  yeah.. sorry for taking so long to upload the comments... I kind of forgot about it.  I have no good excuse, really.   :oops:

The Lobby / Introduce yourself - the DtTvB

Wow, woolters started tracking at 11 years old, and the DtTvB is 13 (granted, not tracking YET)... now I feel like a late bloomer.  :(

Oh well, welcomes to the young DtTvB, the weird and quick-to-edit-his-posts Pineconed, and the ever cryptic Zero Prophet.  Don't let Eagle tell you to leave your sanity at the door; keep it with you!  It's a good thing to have.  :)

Obviously people who write comments like that are people who have never created anything in their lives.  It's hard to believe, but that's the only way one could possibly explain such lack of understanding for how frustrating it is to have someone steal something that you have created.  How could you possibly compare that to making noise with a crumpled newspaper?  It just amazes me that people can be daft enough to make bad analogies like that.

On an unrelated topic, it's time for some Rikimbo poetry!  I found this awesome poem on Wikipedia:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you.

But it had no credits associated to it... so obviously I will assume that the poem was not created by a human being, and just fell into the public domain as a result of some freak accident involving a blender and a newspaper which scrambled these words in this pseudorandom fashion.  Oh well, I like it, so I'm going to sample it.  Here, for your enjoyment, is my fresh, new, totally original poem:

Rikimbo's Super Special Awesome Poem
Once apon a time,
In a land far, far away,
Roses were red,
Violets were blue,
Sugar was sweet,
And so were you.
I hate my life,
And I want to die.

By Rikimbo.

I hope my poetry has touched your heart, as it comes from the most honest part of mine.

Oh come on you guys, his analogy isn't so bad.  I mean, consider this.  What, exactly, does it mean to steal your TV?  Clearly, stealing your TV would be following you to the store, WATCHING you buy it, and then taking it from you.  Okay, that's stealing.  But obviously, if I just take your TV while you're not home or while you're not looking, then that's not stealing, right?  If I see a TV somewhere, clearly it is my right to take it and use it for myself.  That's what we call sampling, not stealing.  Everybody knows that.  Where's your common sense?


Tracking / Where to get XIs for Milkytracker?
« on: January 31, 2007, 23:17:15 »
@Jojo & Ceekayed:  Yes, do get Claymore's old instruments up somewhere;  I'm interested in grabbing that too, now.

@Morgan:  I think the archive Eagle may have been referring to is theFreeSoundProject (  -- Even if that isn't the one he was talking about, it is a good place to get lots of interesting stuff.  They're not .xi instruments though, so I know it didn't really answer your request.  Sorry.  :)

Tracking / Goodbye Altered Perception

11 hours??  Holy smokes!  It is nice to finally have that altered perception section integrated into the archive though.  Cool.

I got one point, which means one person ranked me third.  If someone was able to find something good in my work, then that's good enough for me! :)

Congrats, Ceekayed.  I thought your tune completely blew the others away, so I'm happy to see it win.  Awesome work.  :)
