  1. Damn, I already planned to attend the Summer Nationals at Terminal 5 this August, so making a second trip across the country may be out of the question. Still I'm more willing to attend Sonic Boom 3000 miles away then I was back when it was in California. As such that's the way it goes. That and the fact that a new business venture is forcing me to head out east regularly anyhow. Crap, searching for advanced Greyhound tix.
  2. I knew my post would be the subject of debate eventually. Didn't realized it'd be this soon. I fail to recognize a need to cite anything I've said. While the amount of talent or skill that the aforementioned individuals possess is up for debate I can without a doubt say that Sonic Team have been pivotal and key in regard to maintaining a direction that has for the most part remained concise and true to the origins of the series. This especially holds true as of late.
  3. In regard to the OP's question, I'll be willing to assume yes. In fact, if anything from the sub series captivates a greater interest it's safe to bank on Sonic Team proper looking to further develop and apply those areas of interest into the main series and/or move to a conjunction of the two series. I'm giving the benefit of the doubt to both parties and any third parties involved they'll do what's most practical on all points. In regard to splitting, abandoning, or replacing Sonic Team proper, that's a definite no. It's not practical from a viewpoint, financial or otherwise, to let go of an established and talented group of people, some of which have been working for years, some even decades, that have consistently been employed and as such a valuable asset to the parent company.
  4. You don't think anyone here is that stupid, do you? Rhetorical question warrants rhetorical answer.
  5. Personally I don't mind snow myself, but that's more attributed to the fact that it occurs rarely where I'm at. Last time it snowed at my level was five years ago give or take, and previous to that was ten years ago. Anyhow whatever this part of Cali gets is nothing compared to what I've experienced on the East Coast. Got snowed in once in Staten Island where I was staying in NYC, what a mess to shovel a path through the door.
  6. I wonder how this guy feels. EDIT: Tagged for size, and because it's kinda gross. Like a total dumbass, no question. Note to self, consider twice before etching pop culture icons onto one's self, or live with regrets. Actually, I take that back, it applies to tats in general.
  7. Which reminds me to dig out my extended plays. For now, Bleach. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9KxZqDaO-I Also, welcome to the latter half of the 80's, enjoy your stay dude.
  8. Easy and cheap way to extend the current contract on an already failing series. As a fan before the show got stale (which in my opinion was after it's second comeback) I expect no better of Seth. Motherfucker is laughing all the way to the bank, The three series he has had airing have been quite the goldmine for him. I have to say I'd do the same though, haha. Who wouldn't if presented the chance?
  9. I'm generally content with most of Crush 40's tracks. Tracks in Adventure and Adventure such as "Open Your Heart" and "Live And Learn" have rightfully earned their place in the hierarchy as far as music in the series goes, but even some of their later work, such as "Sonic Heroes" and "What I'm Made Of" is alright, despite the former track arguably being somewhat tacky. In my opinion tracks from Shadow The Hedgehog once again showed that Crush 40 was capable of belting out some radical tracks that combined elements of other genres while staying true to their sound. Hard to believe some aren't fans of "I Am" or "Never Turn Back", though this is likely somewhat because of the connotations to the game, which is highly ignorant in itself, but I digress. After Shadow The Hedgehog they still contributed to the soundtrack of Sonic The Hedgehog. As time progresses Crush 40 doesn't play much part in the soundtracks of recent games, and one questions as to why, but it's clear they've left a great impact on the series as a whole. Other tracks from the series I enjoy are those from Tony Harnell (feat. Ted Poley), such as "It Doesn't Matter" and "Escape From The City", of which are cheesy to an extent (though not as bad as later work), but being a fan of their other acts, TNT and Danger Danger respectively, it's not shock. They stay true to their style and that's what counts in my opinion. Another artist in general I like, yet isn't much a contributor in the series, is Julien-K. "Waking Up" is quite underrated as far as Sonic music goes, but I put blame on Electronic Rock being more of a niche than anything else.
  10. All opinions aside this is clearly free advertisement for CEX. Quite honestly it cracks me up to see such strong responses over the actions of both parties.
  11. The holiday is quite contentious in my case. I don't look at the holiday in any religious notion, and the commercialized bastardization of the holiday is also disheartening to look at. If all else throughout my life it's been a time for gathering between myself and others, whether it be with family, friends, or colleagues. Perhaps some of said gathering wasn't at will, but the majority was, and even a cynic such as myself has grown to appreciate the affect of a corrupt holiday, which glamorizes consumerist debauchery and religious fallacies, has on us all. As I stay here and reminiscence I can't help but feel the least bit contented remembering the good times and bad of past years. Not so much a feeling of nostalgia, but one of yearning, a desire to return to times past. Simpler times at that, of giving, of gathering, of general appreciation of life. As time progresses though I can't help but feel disconnected. Whether it be the age factor, distance between myself and my family, or other things entirely, I continue to fall out of the holiday. However because of that I won't ruin anyone's fun this season. By all means I encourage everyone to celebrate however the choose, even if it entails doing nothing at all, such as myself.
  12. I'm not big on the holiday, though I've always thought the riffs in this piece were radical.

  14. For what it's worth, to an ever growing number of people holiday's don't mean jack shit. Take that as however you'd like. Speaking as someone having been in the retail and another miscellaneous service field I was more than happy to collect a double overtime pay rate, in addition to my regular pay, though just the regular pay would have sufficed. Work sure beat being at home wasting my time drinking like no tomorrow or bullshitting while visiting family, pretending to enjoy each others presence all in the name of tradition. But hey, I'm a proponent for equal accommodation, so I'm sure others would gladly work that day. Just so happens that the conglomerate Walmart doesn't attempt to hire many seasonal workers and as such the workload is shifted to the regular full timers. It is what it is, considering how that company functions elsewhere as well.
