obituary, cheers

100%

Also Epic is usually around 99% of the time but when you
want him he is probably rooting through a garbage bin behind
Walgreens

"dumpster behind a walgreens fuck you" after thinking "i
didn't say he fucking died i said i wasn't sure if this was
him or just his uncle that he was pretending to be on the
internet" and

you didn't read that shit anyways when i posted it before,
since i didn't respond to your thread right away you're like
"is he dead?" while totally missing that yes, i have posted
stuff recently? i'm just not spamming the board?

truth is my own shit is pretty fucked right now. financially
pretty screwed, i tried having lewis as a roommate again and
kicked him out and now we're not friends anymore. he drank
all my coffee and smoked all my cigs and now i'm constipated
and jonesing for nicotine so hard i am spending a lot of my
time fighting the urge to punch a hole in the wall. so
excuse me if i'm not in the fucking mood to go search a
database for something you didn't read the first time

it's labor day weekend and everyone's out grilling and
celebrating and fucking lewis smoked all my cigs and drank
all my coffee because he was "in a bad mood" after i told
him fucking not to. and he's trashing the house. 48 hours
before, i hadn't seen him in over a year and figured that
was the way it can stay and then suddenly, can he move here?
okay because i really fucking need the help with rent [which
just went up]. now i'm even more behind in work because of
that jerk, he's declaring "it's a shared household" and FUCK
OFF two days ago i had no idea you'd even travel back over
here and now it's half your house and you're free to fuck my
shit up? and you never paid me ANYTHING in rent last time
you were here doing that? and okay get out of my house and
no, it's a shared house. fuck off. until i'm fucking
screaming at the top of my lungs at him, alternating between
threatening to call the cops and kick his ass. and this guy
used to be one of my best friends and he's not grasping
"PLEASE DO NOT USE UP ALL MY SHIT BECAUSE I CANNOT AFFORD
MORE AND I WILL GO MENTAL IF YOU DO"

and no one's giving a fuck about my vinyl data idea, which
is really the only thing i want to work on anymore, i spent
yesterday hiding in bed in a pile of misery from the wake of
that blowout, and then i'm thinking: serato uses phase of
the pilot tone to tell direction but we don't need that for
data so instead we roll that into the QAM implementation

and it'd work but i will be dead soon at this rate,
and no one cares anyways. unless they need me to find some
old xltronic post

I know it sounds patronising but you need to cut that guy
out of your life for good by what your saying, obs don't
need the ins and out of it. Obs people would miss you if you
snuffed it of course you're one of the OG zilty crew.

epic you're saying no one cares about you because they
don't give a fuck about your vinyl data idea wtf guy?


no, you're conflating two different points:

1) most of my posts/threads get ignored in general

2) yesterday i was holed up in bed all day, don't want to
even get up to pee style, don't want to play with my synths,
don't want to do shit. i don't even want to lie down in bed
but changing that is harder than letting it continue. AND MY
BRAIN IS STILL THINKING ABOUT THIS SHIT. like, i cannot
voluntarily do anything right now, and i'm still working on
this problem. and it has me so fucking bad, dude. i am
obsessed. i don't even know why i bothered mentioning it
here, so i just go back to: i am obsessed with this

and you're vinyl idea is it anything like this?

vinyl is so full of shit, these days. it's all pressed to
vinyl from digital computer files. mike p admitting in an
interview that he's pressed vinyl from fucking YOUTUBE
RIPS.

for a while i spoke of my deep interest in 16-track, proper
tape -- still an interest -- and everyone's all "Why do you
want to work with tape?!" and "well then i could press vinyl
that was a full analog signal path and ACTUALLY BE FUCKING
WORTH A SHIT"

and no one gets that either. so i say: I WANT TO PRESS A
~100MB FLAC FILE TO A VINYL RECORD TO MAKE A FUCKING POINT

and it turns out this a deeply difficult signal-processing
problem. you can't do it like ZX spectrum software. you have
to come up with an entirely novel encoding scheme. and no
one cares but the problem has simply taken me over i can't
let it go. and i actually care about solving this and making
it real more than whether anyone will give a shit after i do

...you need to combine the shit that makes cable modems work
(QAM) with DVS/Serato's technology effectively. serato cares
about both position on the record and direction; we're
cannibalizing these parts to make room for quadrature

GNU radio's file handling is fucking shit

should read, MAKE ROOM FOR QAM. not that anyone would read
enough to even notice such a detail

epic hope u work shit out with lewis to the degree where
you're at least feeling better about it.

Some people cant help but take advantage of hospitality,
it's like they cant see the consequences in advance. It's
like a pathological problem. Someone on the street asks me
for a smoke, "yeah sure, brother"

"hey actually can I get 2 more?"

"get fucked, the nerve to even ask me for 2 more, fuck is
wrong with you?"

Anyway cooler heads will prevail if you talk to him again.
He probably wouldn't have paid the rent on time anyway.

by cooler heads will prevail

I mean a calmer conversation is likely to dismantle the
anger and make YOU feel better. Telling him why he was being
a dick without as much immediate emotion.

I still wouldn't put a guy like that in my house tho.

also frankly, u owe hyperflake an apology.

if you don't apologize
you're a lewis yourself.

it's not like he hits you up every week for post about an
xlt member who died. you're kind of being a little bitch
too. he apologized like 18 times in this thread.

It's no one's fault for not being interested in your vinyl
thing. Theres like 10 of us left and your interests are
narrow.

If I told you to check out my path of exile profile, look at
my necromancer's gear from this league

fudgelet, 97 necro
you telling me you even gonna click that shit? nah.

yeah it feels like we're frogs sitting still in a pot of
water that is just starting to boil.

either way your query was fine, you couldn't divine what was
going on with mr. megatrax's personal affairs and you quite
clearly indicated you felt bad for asking. At *that* point
it's up to epic to not be a bitch about it, that's my view.
I understand every single person in this thread.

And I'm sad about wavephace (WAS he metallicadude?)

proper trolling is an art form. I haven't done it (much) in
the last few years

but my crowning achievement was getting banned from the
diablo 3 forums in 2012 before the game launched with like
1,200 posts that were a 1,200 tiny cuts.

have a good day guys

that sounds like a good mum tho, doesn't pull her punches!

my mom's the same, pretty blunt. I remember 11 or 12 asking

"how do gay people have sex?"

mum: "one guy puts his dick in the other guys ass."

light-hearted way. I have started arguments with people on
Twitter when i used to drink. I got banned the other
christmas
