2. The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai  Across the 8th Dimension
3. The Secret of N.I.M.H.

Four Movies That Are an Abomination:
1. Audition
2. Movies with Steven Segal in them that aren't Executive Decision

Um, that's it, dude. I've lived in tents before, but that's cheating, since they were in Minnesota,  Wisconsin, and Ontario, which is in itself like Wisconsin and Minnesota combined.

Four Places I Would Like to Live:
1. Minneapolis looks nice, but that's cheating, since St Anthony might as well be Minneapolis.
2. What? I have to have all these plans? How about Bhutan? Unstable government, but it's very pretty!
3. I was in London for four days - I think I could get by there.
4. The Budapest subway system, which is the oldest in continental Europe. That movie was awesome.

Also, the upper the bit rate thing seems to have worked. It still sounds mono, but that's because it is. Thank you.

Re: Rockapella
Rockapella is the a capella group that sang on the PBS show Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? - they did almost all of the music, actually. They're a phenomenal band.

Re: Rockapella
Oh, I know what Rockapella is, and was a Carmen Sandiego junkie back in the day, but why? Just because they rock (which they do)?

Re: Rockapella
Just because they rock. It is one of my favoritest cd's in the whole wide world.

Re: Rockapella
That's cool.

Re: Rockapella
They're awesome. Don't be led astray by the admittedly cheesy name: I second the fact that they're really, really good.

Just because of that, I will do this meme.

Re: Rockapella
If there is still static, look out for the volume going above peak - there should be a warning when you listen to it in MQ.
atelierlune on February 3rd, 2006 06:01 pm (UTC)
You mean, clipping? No, I was careful to fix all the warnings they gave of that. Though, do you think it'd benefit if I just turned the master volume down a notch or two?
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on February 3rd, 2006 06:07 pm (UTC)
Re: Clipping?
It all depends on the listener - in general, it should be as loud as you would expect somebody to listen to it. if it's too quiet, it will sound bad when it's loud.
atelierlune on February 3rd, 2006 06:16 pm (UTC)
Re: Clipping?
No, that definitely wasn't an issue - I always listen to my sets as loud as I can stand them ;o)
XCorvisxcorvis on February 3rd, 2006 05:19 pm (UTC)
You also lived in Lauderdale, MN for a summer.
Hoc Est Qui Sumusdiscoflamingo on February 3rd, 2006 05:23 pm (UTC)
Indeed. Edited to add, since I had forgotten just how much time I spent there.
Epic Dudemorecake on February 3rd, 2006 07:15 pm (UTC)
Dude! Barbarella *rocks*! I mean, how bad can watching Jane Fonda in a succession of skimpy outfits be?

Ok, I'm with you on all four of the movies, though I've never seen Remo Williams, I'm willing to go for it. I grew up on the rest and they mean something to me. And the Hobbit? The animation, if not maybe technically amazing, is genuinely creepy and fairly intense if you're deep into the movie. Golem is creepy, the goblins are overwhelming, the dragon devastating. Or so I remember it. I've also modeled much of my life around Buckaroo Bonzai. I've got ten or so more years.

4. Vegemite

What's Vegemite?

What's that website about? I tried to visit it, but it's giving me a 403 Forbidden error.

Since you were confused.
