post #10231 of 11296

I use discogs (F2K plugin) to do all of my media tagging.

 

Even the vinyl flac rips I have don't maintain that vinyl warmth.

 

I just started listening to 'The Raven that Refused to Sing'... AOTY easily. EASILY, this is some seriously good schiit.

 

also I've just been granted full access to my dads home media-server (12Tb of wireless awesome), so I've started uploading all my TV shows... This is gonna be a while:

 

Also, life's gotten super busy, with school, band, and work, every single day, so I'm sorry for the inactivity :(

 

Also girls are dumb and are pros at breaking hearts.

 

See y'all again soon!

Ahh - the little tykes grow-up so fast...

I would try to give you advice on girls, but I've been married for 28 years and I still haven't got a clue how she (or any other female) thinks. Still, trust me - most of the time it's worth it.

The program window appears on the right side of the iTunes player screen, and integrates itself with the music library via iTunes.

Again, if you try this software, do have your original music library backed up elsewhere.
It isn't perfect but it will organize a huge nameless mess and really straighten up a large number of poorly tagged files, running for a couple days if need be.
With really big libraries (more than 10,000 tracks), Drag n Drop presents you with a way to 'feed' TuneUp in chunks, this is the time consuming part if you have hundreds of gigs...

Ahh, then I understand. It's no biggie that I have to use iTunes though, since I do 99% of my listening through my iDevices nowadays anyway. So it's fitting.

 

I'll keep in mind to backup my music elsewhere if it wreaks havoc among my albums. I'd give mp3tag a go first if it wasn't for the sheer amount of music files I have.

:wink_face: While there is no guarantee, emotionally speaking this experience could actually enhance his music listening ability.

I think that sword cuts both ways. On the one hand, when something bad happens I often use music to help me get through it. On the other hand, I tend to associate the music I listened to at the time with that particular period, so that kind of sucks. The trick, I guess, is to switch to that music when things are going really good so you form new associations.

My quick guide on women.

- Go along with them on most things, unless it's a really bad idea.
- Choose your battles and be consistent, don't argue over every little thing.
- Sometimes they simply like to fuss. It doesn't mean it's about you, even if it's directed at you. Learn to nod and mumble in agreement, but in an entirely non-committal way. Do try to focus on what she's saying, mindlessly nodding and mumbling can get you into huge trouble. I know, that's hard, but just do it.

There are 3 groups of women and what they like, in order of prevalence:

Those who like for you to do things for them; like a specific chore they hate doing, or foot rubs, taking them to a specific venue, etc.
Those that prefer gifts; flowers, candy, jewelry, etc... and finally,
Those who want verbal confirmation of affection; "I wuv you", "You're so special", "I'm sorry", "You're so beautiful", etc.

As you can see, the third is easiest for men (so it's the most used), but is the least common among women. So you can see why that tactic fails horribly most times. Find out which triggers the most favorable response from her and remember it. When you fail, and all men do, you'll know how to dig yourself out and won't look like Al. At least not all the time.





Addendum: Do NOT apologize all the time; being a constant "apology machine" only makes you look weak and pitiful. Save them for when you really do make a serious mistake. That way they actually matter. Most times when you make a small slip, use; "that wasn't good", "that could have gone better", "I didn't intend for that to happen", or "oops, my bad" (borderline apology so use sparingly, not to be used on women over 35).

Magick Man had good advice here:

 

Go along with it, don't argue over it and nod in agreement... Life should get better by now! ;)

 

Jokes aside, tough spot, but these things have a way of sorting themselves out. Does this new girl know that your ex-girlfriend is trying to pull her finger?

Well, even if masturbation solves most problems, it probably won't solve this one.

 

You probably should tell the new girl that you like her and ask her out? Unless she's gotten a bit turned off by your ex. Not gonna lie, she may just want to avoid both you and your ex. Unfortunately.

 

Your ex doesn't seem especially mature.

by "keep doing what ive been doing" refered to flirting with the girl.... Im gonna wait a bit before I try to ask her out.

Ahh, right. Not "problem solving" then... Oh well, keep flirting then and don't mind your ex. If she hasn't affected the new girl, don't let her affect you.

Wait - how did the ex know you were infatuated with this other girl? In the social pecking order, where is the ex compared to the new girl? High school girl social dynamics are incredibly complex. Boys are so much simpler - if I'm mad at you, I call you an schitthead, you punch me in the middle of the back, I punch you in the middle of the back, and then we get in the car and go have pizza, problem solved.

Magick's list forgot a few options:

4) Those that have determined their mother was right, and you really are a lousy deadbeat.
5) Those that don't give a d@mn what you say or do, as long as you keep bringing home a paycheck.
6) Those that blame you for them not having a new BMW, or a $2M house, or a personal assistant/slave.

In the words of the immortal bard: Women, can't live with them... pass the beernuts.




*The immortal bard in this case is Norm from Cheers.
