My favorite Siouxsie LP is The Tinderbox. I love the guitar work so much on it. I love when the song breaks down, and this is the kind of guitar work i love to play the most when I write. Mesmerizing. They don’t make music like this anymore… I got into Siouxsie way after the cure, in my late 20s, as to where i was into the cure when i was much younger.
When I was growing up i used to see devo videos all the time on my local pbs station. This music was a huge influence on me when i was younger, and i preferred Devo to Kraftwerk any day of the week. This was the American Kraftwerk.
They had a Vhs video thing that was was amazing that i watched a lot too. The singer also was part of the Church of the Sub Genius. I used to drop acid and watch that.
This is the band that actually made VAC start more than any other. This idea that with a drum machine you could basically do anything. I still love the old Sisters, up to floodland. After floodland I could care less. This was the sound track to my teen years. And the first Alternative band I was ever exposed to. Old VAC was all bases on the DR 660 drum machine. I still use sounds from this drum machine now.
The sisters are not goth, they are the sisters. They are loved by goths but also appeal to people outside goth culture. Much like the cure is not goth, they are the cure.
Ahhhh, Curve, a band that is so under rated and I still listen to it to this day.
We tried to get The singer of this band to sing to slut. Ahhh so close but fell through, oh i wish it hadnt… Even though it was still one of our biggest hits..
I saw this video when i was on acid with an X from a long long time ago when i used to wear skirts and have huge goth hair… Oh those old days, the beginning days of VAC. And believe it or not Curve was a BIG influence on us.
Yay, got the se02, Pro-1, and a bunch good software, massive x, spire, arturia 8, dune 3, and lots more. Working on new songs, drums with battery and outboard quadraverb gt and gsp5 should get me into that old VAC sound nicely. Picked up a akai MIDImix Control Surface(to control and program my soft synths, and it didn’t work just like the korg nanokontrol2, those are for abelton)). Got Vaccinated, first shot, will get second shot in 20 days, I hope shows will happen this fall. If not then i hope in 2022. I miss playing shows more than anything, and our time touring for Ora Oblivionis got cut short Sadly because of covid.
I think I will be streaming newer ps4 and ps5 games more than PS3 games. Not many new games really make me happy at the moment, not sure if I will have a ps5 this year 🙁
I am working on Patreon content and post old stuff to my YouTube. I want to get more watch hours on my YouTube account so I can monetize my YouTube. I thought about a twitch channel, but honestly I do not just want to stream games and YouTube is a better fit for the vast sorts of media i need to publish.
Cyberpunk, COD, Some new stuff, HOBO SOCOM aka last of us factions online. Some new game, just testing my capture device and obs which is rendering video with my amd radeon rx 580 and not the i9. I didnt sleep well the past few nights, going to bed early. I also spent a lot of time programing the deepmind 12d and falling in love with it again… 🙂 So i have a barp 2600 huge mono synth, se02 huge mono with presets and the deepmind 12d with 3rd part sound banks that sound amazing and make it sound even better than the ob6 on most types of sounds. the built in fx are amazin..
This is one of my first streams, i was figuring what settings to use and how to configure obs. How to tour discord, my mic, and use a mic for ps3. a bit complicated. I will be streaming Wildlands, Rainbow 6 Siege, And Cold War, and Modern Warfare. Plus single player games. I wish I had figured this out last year. But i finally got a capture device and figured out obs more. Cool. I will be making a schedule for streaming. I’ll post it here soon.
Do not buy digital content anymore, because Sony thinks it can just shut it down once its old, so all that money you poired into their digital store is for nothing. I really hope sony comes to the senses, because This is some serious bullshit. You do not give us backwards compatible games in the ps5, then you shut down the digital stores for ps3 and vita and psp. WTF. If you do this. I will never buy anything Sony again. I am not joking.
I like this guy, its how i am finding a lot of old games for cheap to play instead of spending $70 on new ps5 games. I missed so many games on ps3 and ps2, and ps1 that i think i can spend an eternity with these 3 machines and still not play everything cool.
After using the Series S, I was very let down. I am sure i would really like the power of the ps5, but…….
So in Microsoft buying Bethesda, is that really going to help xbox? I hated game pass, its like 180 a year, for online play and a bunch of games i would never play or buy for the most part. I only liked a few of the games on game pass that i tried. Bathesda, FALLOUT 76 IS the worst fallout ever. That game is a POS. And that is just my opinion, not a fact. I love fallout. But that is not Fallout. And what else, elder scrolls? yeah never played that on a console any way. Doom? meh. Having an xbox is like having a PC with a few extra games. So honestly because i have a PC. Xbox is just not appealing.
The ps5, Well, the interface sucks. The ui is lame, i still to this day prefer the ps3 interface. I loved the speed of the ps4 interface, but the ps3 allowed you to stream stuff from your pc, and was easier to find your games. Now this new PS5 interface the home button is all messed up and it has all these bugs where you can brick the ps5 usb hard drives. Cant copy ps5 games to usb hd, no expansion is activated, so no 2nd ssd to improve the space from 625gb to 1625gb. And you cannot find one. Plus its very big. I tried to get one, but gave up after a while and just started messing with the ps2 and ps3. Much happier.
In the end though, its always sony because of their 1st party, God of War, Uncharted, Last of us, And their other 1st party exclusives. Sony makes very good single player games, Microsoft does not, and Bethesda has to prove itself again after fallout 76.
I am pissed that there was no Socom for ps5 launch. Piss there was no socom for PS4, the should of did HD confrontation and socom 4 at least. That would not of been hard.
Eventually when i can walk into a store and just buy a ps5, i will, playing ps4 games at 60 fps will be worth it eventually.
Yup, The dog and I are playing some Socom 2, on the ps2 i got cheap. When i had the series S, their online store did not have many xbox, or 360 games. Just this and that and nothing i remembered that i really liked other than fallout and dead space. Lucked out and got a ps3 and now that confrontation is back online WOW. And soon i will play Socom 2 online as well. Plus I can play any ps1, ps2, or ps3 game, digital, or physical copy with my ps4, ps3, and ps2. My tv upscales component 480i and other modes that the ps2 has and it looks great on this tv. Sucks that i could not get a ps5 and play all the games with emulation. Sucks that the Series S has a limited catalog for the S.
PS4, Switch, PS3, PS2.
Very happy now. I tried the emulators on the pc. For some reason i did not care for it. I prefer playing the real hardware. The only way i will buy a ps5 now, is if there is a socom. Or god of war. We shall see, honestly, i want the ps5 slim, not that huge weird console.
I was so excited when the box came. Finally a ps2 again, I gave my last ps2 to Todd Loomis years ago when we were working on lust for blood, i think he gave it to his nephews. I have the slim now. I also bought a HD retrovision Component cable for the ps2. And it looks amazing through it, and that cable is better than most of the 3rd party ones.
Over all i am very happy. Now, once Diana gets here, we can play together like we used to. God i miss her. 🙁
