    Things are okay. I've been indoors for almost two months now and thank God I can work from home. How are you?

    they are quickly becoming one of my favorite bands like their lyrics are just so relatable to what im going through right now

    I find it impossible to hate Hear it From You despite it being so hatable. But the sentimental part of me wants to sing it to a future girlfriend lol.
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    Yeah Til I Hear It From You is one I was thinking of lol

    same with Cajun Song, Allison Road, and Mrs. Rita. All the songs about a lover being far away from you but you either do or do not trust them to be loyal and return one day
    i remember u from ages ago. you good bro?

    That was one of my favorite days ever. I was on vacation with my family about to cross the US/Canada border into British Columbia when they announced it on the radio. Hate to get all "i come from a broken home" but it is still one of the most vivid memories of laughing raucously with my family.
    I just logged in for the first time in like 7 years and see you're still active. Whats up dude?

    Pretty good here too. Stumbled upon smogon through reddit and fell into a wave of nostalgia. Been living the working life for some years now, life's pretty good. you still play mons aswell?

    Been spending countless hours on Sword, but I haven't played competitively since ORAS

    Nice, played a lot of shield here, after skipping all of the 3ds games. Shit felt good though slightly simplified. I love how much simpler breeding / training good mons became.
    I bet the Pokemon in your avatar is Jewish. I can tell just by looking.

    what even do i need to explain to you? it seems you have made up your mind re: joe strummer.
    NixHex
    NixHex
    Also what if Tox is supposed to be Sid Vicious? I don't think he was Jewish
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    If he was Sid Vicious, he would kill himself at level 21
    I found a typo in your page, "All About Stats, Training, and Breeding in RBY / GSC", where it is stated that female pokemon under the 1:1 Gender Ratio can have an Attack DV between 0 and 6. It should instead be between 0 and 7 to be half female (0 to 7), half male (8 to 15). Here is a female Hoppip I bred earlier today with an Attack DV of 7.

    Thanks! I edited the article, gotta wait for staff to approve it though. Glad this article still gets views, it's kinda surreal seeing it linked to on old gen subreddits and on glitchcity when I don't contribute to any of those places.

    All done
    just so you know I still listen to Leviathan by Torrent occasionally
    shnen
    And what's the situation with Torrent?
    NixHex
    NixHex
    Only Pokemon-related thing I'm doing is Crystal Battle Tower. I think since the last time I spoke to you I was in grad school, I'm working full time now. Torrent is a memory. Everyone is in different states and married/engaged (except me hah) and either work full-time or are involved in other musical projects. I still text with those guys all the time though, they're great.
    shnen
    Ah cool man, glad to see you're still alive and well haha! Torrent may be but a memory but it will live forevermore in all our hearts.
    loooooooool amazing avatar

    who knew that 19 years later that song would turn into a meme

    btw Ryan Martinie is in a top 10 bassist for me. I know you're not too into heavy stuff but he's an absolute mad man on L.D. 50.

    it was a meme in 2012 too
    shoot dude i dont remember if i asked where in socal you were from. i went to riverside for my mission.

    It's actually kind of refreshing to see that someone from the outside actually likes it here. Most outsiders are pretty cynical regarding California, particularly SoCal.

    haha yeah i understand. people i talked to weren't huge fans. also you living in IE and working in LA is so common. i still don't understand how you do it. or anyone. that is so cool though! we were so close haha

    Hey buddy. Things are weird, life is changing but it goes on. I guess that means I'm good. How've you been?
    Redew
    Redew
    Sorry to hear it's been weird :( You got this, man! I've been fairly good recently. School is about to end so that's nice. I'm ready for summer.
    Idk if your ct is a reference to the lonely island or if I’m just being dumb but threw it on the ground is a good song
    Found out I was supposed to do "rest strokes" so I tried it and it so frustrating I started playing with a pick and all of a sudden I knew how to play with a pick

    still wanna learn how to rest strokes but fuck it's hard. any exercise tips ?
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    so your fingers just go into the air rather than into the above string
    NixHex
    NixHex
    they go to the above string but i've never thought about it. It's the default action (thanks to inertia). Making them go into the air would require effort with no payoff, at least for what i'm playing.
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    right, but on other string instruments, like guitar for example, you want them to go into the air so that was just what i was used to

    rest strokes are way better anyway since it makes the sound more powerful. plus it helps you mute the sympathetic vibrations
    Alice in chains is a great band, that is all. carry on now.
    \m/

    Yeah they're awesome. I got through my teen angst years by listening to Junkhead and all of self-titled and realizing "hey, it could be worse, I could be addicted to heroin and destroying my life."
    Have you ever used short-scale bass? Is it hard to adjust to?

    Right now I play a Fender Jazz Bass and it is hard on my small hands, but not unbearable. I get used to it after a while.

    I'm planning to get a Chowny and they come in either 31" or 34" (same as Fender). Is it is a good idea to get a shorter one? Do you have any experience with that

    I despise that jingle lol, if I'm watching at home and I forget to stop the stream, the jingle comes on at like 3x the volume of everything else haha
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    lol. are there any more permanent recordings of you playing I can watch?
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    Just ordered, it should get here around May so I'll let you know how it is then :D
    RIP Suggestion Box
    NixHex
    NixHex
    My thoughts and prayers should go out to it. I think that'd be good for smogon
    Redew
    Redew
    Let's suggest it back
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    my favorite thread on smogon was in suggestion box. But I mean the guy who made it got spam cleaned ages before suggestion box got deleted anyway so :(
    are you a fan of pickup covers by the way? they look so bad in my opinion. also that's about where i like to pluck
    NixHex
    NixHex
    Never seen them. They cover the entire pickup? I'd have to research the physics of covering a magnet and if different materials cause different tones.
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    I think it might do something but the main reason was just because it looks nice. Maybe to prevent schmutz from getting into the pickups too
    should you ever play open strings if you can avoid it? is it always better to just play the note on the string under?
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    why is that?
    NixHex
    NixHex
    Thought about it after I posted it lol, it's the opposite direction that's bad. You have to choke out the D string as soon as you play the C (unless you want a 2nd interval that low on the scale which will sound super muddy). It's more effort than its worth, and virtually no payoff.
    Hulavuta
    Hulavuta
    lol yeah that's what I was saying. but if you're playing up the scale, the next note will be on the D string anyway so is it bad to just play open and then the E will "mute" the original open D?

    You know I just answered my own question: if you play the D on the same string as the C, you can use the exact same pattern to play any major scale anywhere so it's better to learn it that way
    You ever play with a pick? Man it's a lot harder to play quickly with it. I wonder if it's a style choice or something everyone should know even if it's not their main technique.

    lol maybe the death was staged so he could go into hiding

    no ones ever seen ur dad and jaco in the same place. it all fits

    He was tall, lean, and strong, and for someone who played sports the name "Jocko" fit. His thumbs were double jointed and his fingers were long and thin.[2][8]
