Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Let's discuss our lives in great detail

Wow life is rockin right now. I just got a new job that's 1/4 of the commute and slightly better pay. It just happens to be in the best part of Denver, where there's always something to do. I'll be starting it as soon as they let me out of my current job, and I doubt I'll last the rest of the week in this hellhole.

Also I got tickets for Transformers tonight. Gonna watch it with my buddies and pray that it doesn't suck ass. All in all, this week is looking to be a good one!

What's going on in your week, guys and dolls? Are things looking up, starting to go your way? Or does it sound like someone has a case of the Mondays?

    I am basically doing nothing right now. I'm on break from school and I quit my summer job a few weeks ago because it was way too stressful.

    Life is okay for me right now, besides the pants thing.

    I earn a more than adequate amount of money considering the work that I do. My girlfriend is good. My apartment is good.

    And yet I watch Entourage and see how I could be living.

    I'm still working 14-hour days playing piano all day with only 1 or 2 hour breaks, until I come home and work on "Commissioner Gordon Trips the Signal"(Personal project - postpostmodern piece for Jazz Band) and revising "ReelPolitik"(Latest musical) for theater festivals in NYC.

    Whoooooooooooooo I need sleep.

    yo define post post modern for me please

    Ooh ooh, I love doing this.

    The problem with postmodernism was that it tried to cut itself off from high modernism, but then all the postmodernists realized that they wanted to be taken seriously. So they found Bertolt Brecht and crafted great monuments and worked devoted to his thoughts that all art should suck ass. And then they started getting all serious and pretentious about what they were doing, and being all like "You see, I've used a self-critical distance in my work to separate the parody from the audience, thus forcing them to apply a Brechtian mindset to realize the fullness of the satire", and other shit like that. Which is boring. Basically, they hate their parents(Modernism), but are dying for the modernists to pay attention to them and secretly want their respect.

    So basically Postmodernists are the Emos of the art world.

    Post-Post-Modernism corrects this, because we not only want to split from postmodernism, but also we could care less if they take us seriously. So I don't justify the shit I put down on paper, I just say "Hey... I want this to go here". And yeah, the music I write isn't entirely without cause or reason, just it's not trumped up in convolution and pretentiousness. So basically postpostmodernists are the drunken kid at the party drinking out of a shoe before making out with a random hot girl who passes by, before asking her name.

    (PS the music on my myspace is not postpostmodern. Only my classical music is in that style.

    You get payed to play the piano? D: I tried to find a job doing that but I was forced to admit defeat, and got a job answering phones

    Or maybe I read that wrong and you're just practicing 14 hours a day, which I don't envy at all

    since modernism is about progress and postmodernism is about reinventing the past, it follows that post post modernism would be about stagnation

    Nope, I'm performing most of the time.

    From 9:00 to about noon I'm being a copyist for PSU Libraries Fred Waring Collection, then I go to back-to-back rehearsals and then I have a dinner break before evening performances. But the performances should be done soon, so I might get some sleep someday soon.

    Cap is now working at my job with me.
    Vegas trip in this same month.
    PAX next month. School the month after that.
    Things are pretty awesome.

    Although I do have tendonitis in my left hand right now, which is not as awesome.

    See, the way I see it Modernism is about crunching numbers, Postmodernism is about justifying inane shit, and postpostmodernism is about throwing the needless pretentiousness out the window and creating art that is artistically driven instead of academically driven...

    Right now I'm still 600 miles from my wife, so that sucks. I'm also 600 miles from my dogs, that sucks too.

    Work is kinda flaky, within the next month or two I'll either be eating cat food, or wiping my ass with $100 bills. Can't tell which.


    My wife and dogs are still 600 miles away.


    I can get around the house with just a cane, and around the kitchen with nothing at all as long as I keep a hand on the counter. Thats pretty kick ass. I have to spend my free time at the gym with a great trainer-therapist, but he works me like a nazi.


    all in all.... 3.5 out of 5 stars.

    I just finished moving cross country, from Illinois to Georgia.

    Slowly trying to re-assemble my life out of all the boxes, and getting everything registered/transferred, ect.

    However, having the pressure of the move itself off my shoulders is a huge relief.

    Maybe I've just had shitty shitty professors who were modernists and postmodernists, and one awesome professor who was like "Fuck them all. Losers.
