    Ratatat = 2 Dudes.

    Check out their non remix shit, its great. Like the song 'Lex', probably heard them sampled in some of Daft Punk's work.

    I was afraid to take a shower after wards because I thought there'd be poo in it. No one else even uses my shower but I was 100% sure it'd be 40% poopy.

    I've gotten a couple of dates from OKcupid, including the one I'm going on this Sunday, Napp. Your mileage may vary, but if you are patient and persistent then it's fine.

    I'm patient but not so much persistent. Which may be why i'm in this predicament to begin with.

    As a side note, sad music is very much a viscous cycle. It gets you sad/depressed so the only music that sounds good is sad/depressing music which only makes you more sad/depressed........

    Being persistent means that you keep talking to different people.

    If a person doesn't respond, move on. If they aren't very interesting, move on.

    That's what it means. Just keep moving through people until you find someone interesting.

    EDIT: It also helps to remember that, if you are using it as a dating site, then you are trying to advertise a product. And that product is you. So constructing your profile takes a little work (I find it fun).

    And don't take any shirtless pictures of yourself. Trust me on this one. Just don't. Just. Don't.

    Yeah... I don't know... on the one hand this seems like a great way to do everything but I'm not sure if its how I work as a person. Then again, my campus/current lifestyle hasn't really done anything that good for me in that area of my life in the first place...

    Also, I don't think I'd ever put a photo of me with my shirt off on there. I don't even like mowing lawn with my shirt off even if its at my uncle's summer home that they never use and no one is there.

    If you don't like Animal Collective, listen to Strawberry Jams then work your way backwards. Strawberry Jam is very poppy compared to their other stuff. Check out 'Unsolved Mysteries'.

    Its not a matter of being poppy, its more a matter of them intentionally destroying decent songs with irritating noises.

    I mean, a lot of what I listen to isn't poppy at all... but it also doesn't try to make my ears bleed.

    Well. Strawberry Jam is poppy compared to their other studio albums. It is the most accessible to people that aren't acclimated to the 'irritating noise'.

    The 'noise' is still present, but it is quite appropriate in the instances they use it.

    Check out the 'peacebone' video if you want to have nightmares.

    'like a pelican at red-tide, I'm a corpse and not a fisherman'.

    I would venture to say Strawberry Jam is their magnum opus.

    I'll give Strawberry Jam a shot, but i don't see how its going to change my opinion on like, their album Feels (or atleast, the song Grass off that album).

    This is why you keep burning out.


    You can't stress out about this shit, especially on dating websites; it's practically a numbers game.


    If you're a rookie dater, worst case scenario is you're only going to get one out of every ten women to date you. You have to ask a lot of women out; it's the only way you're going to develop a thick skin and some fucking standards for yourself. Learn the rules of the game and you'll never have women problems again, and you don't have to turn into a douchebag to get this way.

    When I first started asking women out it was more like a 3 to 5/10 ratio; now it's somewhere around 8 or 9/10.


    You have to get used to rejection, otherwise you're never going to find that significant other. Don't be like those doofs who stick with the first chick who lets them have sex with them. They usually end up marrying the girl, who turns out to be a completely manipulative woman. This happened to my uncle and I can tell that he's hurting because of it.

    The problem is, here on campus atleast, I don't even get the chance to ask them out; I talk to them, realize "I'd like to date this person" and then they mention their boyfriend.

    Literally, there has not been a girl down here I've wanted to date who wasn't already taken (and still is) or a lesbian. But, i've found these things out before I ever asked them out so... i never got the hide built up.

    edit: WTF
    "Negs," i.e. remarks, such as backhanded compliments, that are designed to actively demonstrate lack of interest and "falsely disqualify" the pickup artists as potential suitors or, more commonly, to tentatively disqualify the target. Negs are generally advocated for attractive and very attractive women. They are intended for numerous purposes, including slightly lowering a girl’s self-esteem so she’s more vulnerable to pickup

    Still amazed that he had to crank out four records in a single year back in the 70's. That's just insane.

    It could also be that they get a boyfriend in the interim while you are debating whether or not to ask them out.

    Although I am probably the worst person to be giving dating advice.

    I suppose that might have been the case once or twice, but all the others have been either been dating for 2+ years or they got brought up somehow during our first or second conversation.
