Geared Up.

Starting off with some pretty entertaining frankie gameplay xD

About damn time for a new post-- Taking another look at the rig, with which I induce ear-bleeding and horrible feedback.

Guitars:

American Vintage '65 Jag
-Beautiful tone; Some schematic shit was imprinted on the plastic covering the pickguard when it arrived, as if it was being written upon (Looked like something to do with the pots)

MIJ Special HH Jag
-Damn fine guitar, the dragster humbuckers sound a little cheesy clean, but scream like nobody's business with some hefty gain.

Yamaha EG112 (50 bucks at a thrift shop)
-First time I plugged this one in and switched the amp on, it started making some horrendous noises (output was corroded) Sanded it up, threw some new strings on, and peeled off some masking tape ('Dafuck?) that someone had placed on the fingerboard in order to label notes-- Worked like new.
-Currently resides on my desk, taken apart, awaiting the day I decide to modify it.

FSR Ebony Stratocaster
-First electric, haven't picked it up in a while, may record something with it soon, after recording with the '65 jag of course.

And, of course, the generic yamaha acoustic of no name; I intend to utilize it in some future recordings, instead of just switching off my amp and abusing the HH Jaguar lol

Amps:

'65 Deluxe Reverb
-The workhorse of my amps, 'n shit. It's just awesome.
-Swapped out the stock speaker for a smaller one that naturally distorts at lower volumes

Mustang II (V.1)
-Decent for practice, high level of preset effect customization, nice loud speaker, et cetera.
-Tried running some conventional pedals through this pup once, didn't work out too well.

Behringer GMA106
-Little 10watt with built in overdrive, decent practice amp.

Pedals:

Current board: Vox (v847?) Wah, BBE Green Screamer Overdrive (Replacing my poor broken Ibanez TS9 for the time being), Dunlop - Way Huge Swollen Pickle (Awesome name for a fuzz pedal, am I right?), BOSS CS-3 (Compression Sustainer), Electro Harmonix Small Clone (Chorus), BOSS DD-7 (Digital Delay)

Laying around: Octavio Fuzz (Sucks the juice out of the daisy chain and kills all of the pedals unless it's got a fresh 9v in it), Dunlop rotovibe, TS9 (Busted up for the time being), Some tuner pedal, and more!

Good Tunes.

Yyyeah, figured as much.. the day I saw the first scrolling banner ad here, and it was that game? Has to be jinxed somehow. Very sorely tempted to buy Borderlands 1, but.... it's on torrents.. would've even run on my 2.4 single core (barely) might as well wait till I get the parts.
Kid minding the store was in Intel-man, but in the course of perfection seeking and ooo-hoo-hoo! gameplay, we all brothers... besides the modern Intel chips are pretty smoking if a bit pricey.

Destrayop responds:

I see.

Saw the box for it a few minutes ago at game stopped.
Didn't have I wanted at Blowe's, so I figured I'd stop in and talk shop

Destrayop responds:

Oh jah, you on laptop
well the card specs and your previous tales of Diablo will still help

Destrayop responds:

Yuh. I recommend a better card than mine lol my current setup works but stuff like DayZ is pushing it.


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-19 16:53:38

What are the specs on your monitor? LCD, right? I wanna see them pawns in the distance...
and, um, video card too?
Last time got uber lucky with a 30$ special back in the day and worked fine, just fine, even with Fallout and Crysis... think it was a cheapie geforce 7300 gs, but it couldn't hack the l&l of GTA IV

(Updated ) Destrayop responds:

I'm on a factory default gateway nv53a laptop lol
's 1366x768 (Yeh, lcd), ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250

2013-02-19 16:26:00

Got 1/2 of the gear worked out. Gonna be a 6 core amd 3.2 Ghz whomper in the middle, just over 100$
Why th hell haven't HD prices dropped since I built my last rig in 2007? $ really worthless?
Can't say I trust any drive other than a seagate |:

Destrayop responds:

Nice choice of processor :l.
Suppose it is lol


ViperViper

2013-02-19 12:15:43

Destrayop responds:

Quite :l.

Firefox works amazingly on my computer ._.

Destrayop responds:

hmmm :l


ViperViper

2013-02-19 00:28:11

Its about as fast as a fat guy with an even bigger fat guy riding on the first fat guy's back for me ._.

Destrayop responds:

that sums up firefox on my machine lol


ViperViper

(nick)
Internet Explorer works about as well for an internet browser for me as a rock.
(sorry I haven't eaten really anything in like a day so i'm a bit....wooooo hungry at the moment and weird...)

(steve)
whats wrong with WMP?

Destrayop responds:

Works awesomely for me xD


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-18 23:44:00

Ugh, windows media player, see wat I mean Nick :3
Might be from having FF on you system for so long, constantly getting repatched, idk...
I liek firefox too

Destrayop responds:

IE all the way xD


ViperViper

2013-02-18 23:35:03

Firefox ._.
Though I have no intention on changing that. If I REALLY REALLY want to listen to something on here I just download it and listen to it on WMP.

Destrayop responds:

lolz internet explorer works wonders for me


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-18 23:18:47

Dude, you are one hopeless sysadmin....

Destrayop responds:

Nah lol


ViperViper

2013-02-18 23:08:46

Its like that even after I update flash ._.

Destrayop responds:

Odd, what browser you using?


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-18 23:00:17

\/ Sounds like you need updates and for Flash specifically.
Ha! Desert music, awesome, always liked the bad-man's stuff.
? Audio got cut out twice whilst navigating away from the NG audio player... just a Flash issue of running a bunch of shit all at once, yet another reason I'm grateful for the supporter badge and the lack of crappy Flash ads.

Destrayop responds:

Probably
Yeah it's awesome tunes.


ViperViper

2013-02-18 22:43:39

Not for me. It fucks up every other second. Making it so I pretty much can't even listen to stuff on here.

I know right? :D

Destrayop responds:

That sucks.


ViperViper

2013-02-18 22:29:36

I hate the audio player on here ._.
It constantly fucks up....

Also I was listening to this while I was typing this.

Yes those are dead people ._.

Destrayop responds:

usually works fine for me

Well that's pleasant :D


ViperViper

2013-02-18 21:18:34

No I didn't o.O

Destrayop responds:

Good tunes.


ViperViper

2013-02-18 20:52:56

I found another Stoner Grunge band ._.

http://sauzakings.bandcamp.com/album/the-sauza -kings

(Updated ) Destrayop responds:

Weird band name :l I'll check em out in a bit though dude
Speaking of stoner stuff, did you hear that one kyuss-style tune that badman did?


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-18 20:33:27

Thanks man. Yeah, gonna put something together for about 500... got a half decent case and a 650 watt PS, but the rest of my odds and ends aren't going to cut it in a new system.
Worse comes to worse, I'll haul the box somewhere and plug it into the net, bleh, but it's gonna be a while before I can trust win7 to the internet elements (via wifi)

Beacon and FPS/RPG deficiencies are not a laughing matter :| I know you know wat I'm talking about.

Destrayop responds:

With the right parts, it should be a gaming beast lol

I know precisely what you mean :l many misfortunes have come my way because of insanely low fps-- more than once.


ViperViper

2013-02-18 19:57:41

Yeap ._.

Destrayop responds:

Yes... yes that's true. Guess I'm just lazy to go info hunting again. Last one I built took me almost 3 hours, but the choices on HW took many more hours than that.
Questions: If I buy windows 7, can I keep them (MS) from accessing my computer? can i still use torrents, mount drives and do other sketchy things? can I install win7 without validating online?

Destrayop responds:

Yeah it's the selection of parts that takes the most time and research. Been looking at a whole bunch of configurations, and for around 500 or so you could build a nearly-top-of-the-line gaming computer

I've got win7 and manage sketchy things like those you mentioned (specifically) just fine-- I'm not sure about that last part, as I took the pansy-way out with the prebuilt laptop, preinstalled win7 deluxe home edition and all that shit.


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-18 19:04:29

Don't have a real PC or console game, but I have to play mass effect and some other scifi shoot first games... really debating on if I should build a PC, buy a stuck together one or just be a pussy and buy a console.

(Updated ) Destrayop responds:

Building your own PC will get you a higher quality one for cheaper than you'd pay pre-built-- Slightly more expensive than a console though for a nice gaming pc.


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-18 14:19:43

As long as I can get to the bank tomorrow, I should be okay....
Cats are hungry you see...
What mischief are you up to? Any games?
Gonna nap myself, big pussy that I am :\

Destrayop responds:

Just been laying around, pretty much


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-18 14:00:53

I saw nothing.
Nice to have a 3 day weekend huh?
Didn't realize till the radio said so around 1 last night ._.

Destrayop responds:

4 day weekend over here.


sandy25198sandy25198

sandy25198sandy25198

2013-02-17 23:49:06

its pretty much like something you'd see in cloudy with a chance of meatballs lol awesome ass movie that was

Destrayop responds:

Only got to see part of that movie, and it was in german with no subtitles so I only picked up on about 50% of every sentence xD


sandy25198sandy25198

2013-02-17 22:41:16

Destrayop responds:

Like the most awesome weather forecast of all time xD


sandy25198sandy25198

2013-02-17 19:17:11

Destrayop responds:

sandy25198sandy25198

2013-02-17 16:04:15

thats actually quite creative ._. could use a bit of a better illustration but in this case its quite alright!
oh and mango juice! :D

Destrayop responds:

Indubitably ._Q
Mango juiceiverse explosion flood volcano hurricanes :O! lol

2013-02-17 03:19:33

Yeah, but not as big a downer when I checked her page... turns out something very similar happened to her a few weeks before the video came out.

Thanks again for the toon site info - that shit is tremendous, even has The Maxx as well as many other fucked up old chestnuts.... no The Brothers Grimm though (another early MTV toon)

Destrayop responds:

Anytime man.


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-17 02:49:48

Cousin's coming over Sunday around Noon - just tiding up, or rather, cleaning shit that should've been done already.. I see Emily's back with a vengeance http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/611433 Dami would totally understand her work, creepifying as it is.

Destrayop responds:

I see.
Hah, well that was a downer

Those Disney dogs were supposed to have mango spaghetti! There's got to be a better way to manipulate layers in GIMP..... oh well, things get better financially, gonna try a light pen for detail work.

(Updated ) Destrayop responds:

Did Dami get that link as well xD?


VicariousEVicariousE

2013-02-13 23:11:22

NNNnnnaaa, Nick's got a better handle on real-reality than we do Dami.
All that "beyond the minds eye" creepiness isn't useful most of the time.
Wonder which one of us would win at poker if we all played....

Destrayop responds:

Eh lol that's debatable, then again everything is.
An interesting scenario, indeed l:
