I love it too. What's really interesting about that band is that over the years you can feel the music get darker and darker as the lead singer's addiction gets worse, until his death. The two new albums with the new singer are both incredible, just different, you know.

Doing a report on fibonacci and it's connection with music for speech so that's why. Trying to figure out if there was some connection with phi and music since phi is related to fibonacci numbers. So far, I can't find anything. Could just be because rock music doesn't really follow a mathematical formula though.

I did a report on Fibonacci a couple of years ago. I used Tool's song Lateralus in the report. I don't know if you're familiar with the song, or if you've even used it already, but at least the first two verses follow the Fibonacci sequence. Assuming you don't know the song, listen for how many syllables are said in each phrase.

How would I multiply the percentage? I would just convert that to a decimal? Like 20% becomes 0.20 and 33.6% becomes 0.336?
User avatar #151842 - thedudeistheman (06/12/2015) [-]
Yeah. So if a song is 4:00, you'd convert that to seconds, multiply it by the decimal representation of the percentage, and convert the result back to the standard m:s.

I meant, don't just say the answer. Probably poor choice of wording. Like I want to know how it's done, the steps, the formula. Know what I mean? If you're just telling me like the definitive answer, I'm not really learning anything and I want to learn. I want to know how it's done so I can do it on my own.
User avatar #151840 - thedudeistheman (06/12/2015) [-]

like if you watch the movie Se7en you can see how dark and gritty the shot is.

if you watch a wes anderson movie you'll probably see a lot of bright colors.

if you watch m night shamalamadingdong you'll probably notice actors give very little expression in their faces and look somber all the time

michael bay will be like super fast cuts and scenes so can never get bored with loud noises. basically the equivalant of danging keys in front of a baby.


you can also look at fight choreography. if the camera is always shaky so you cant see anything that's a signal of a bad director. but if they know how to cut the scene so you can see what the fight is doing and looks good thats a good director
User avatar #30734 - thedudeistheman (06/09/2015) [-]
David Fincher's movies have that dark tone to them. That I've definitely noticed. Wes Anderson's style is very distinct too. I've never noticed that about Shamalamalamama's movies before, but I'll keep an eye out for that next time.

They're called "auteurs"

In film criticism, auteur theory holds that a film reflects the director's personal creative vision, as if they were the primary "auteur" (the French word for "author").

User avatar #30751 - smellyharold (06/09/2015) [-]
Hm. I believe it takes knowledge and understanding of both technical and thematic aspects of a director's film. In other words, one needs to:
1. Know that the director's movies are the director's movies (sorta obvious I suppose)
2. Find similarities in how the films portray themselves - when is the camera close to character, what are the color schemes like, what is often the focal point of most shots, ect.
3. Find similarities in the themes of the films/what they are about , like Is it suppose to entertain through violence, is the movie spent trying to find out about the main character, are most characters portrayed as gritty and realistic or not, ect.

Once you get those three things down and are able to watch other, different films, a difference between the same director's movies and others should be distinguishable. And as even more and more films by different directors are watched with the same knowledge kept then one can see what influence a director may have had on a different film.

For example, lots of people have said that Seven Psychopaths (2012) has dialog and characters influenced by Quentin Tarantino.
User avatar #30774 - thedudeistheman (06/09/2015) [-]
Seven Psychopaths doesn't seem Tarantinto-esque in a direct way, if that makes sense. It's more of the way in which the characters interact with each other.

Thanks, I'll try to pay attention to these when I watch a movie.
User avatar #30729 - maddboiy (06/08/2015) [-]
a good thing to do is watch some of the Every Frame a Painting video essays on youtube. He sometimes goes through specific directors and looks at their styles and what they aim to achieve and how they do it. The one about about Edgar Wright and the way he does comedy is one of my all time favourites www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FOzD4Sfgag
User avatar #30732 - thedudeistheman (06/08/2015) [-]
I've actually seen some of those before. They're really interesting. I was planning on checking out some more, but I'll definitely watch the Edgar Wright one first.

User avatar #30722 - machiavellianhumor (06/08/2015) [-]
the placement of cameras, how they choose to shoot certain shots, the color filters they use, how they ask actors to play their roles. a lot of it has to do with the way the movie is edited post production too. and if you can see a better performance in some actors or worse performances when working with certain directors

Watch movies from a certain director. Then watch other movies of the same genre and compare them. Look at Zack Snyder, his films are dark. J.J Abrams films have a certain look. Michael Bay films put emphasis on action/special effects.

User avatar #127 to #126 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (06/25/2014) [-]
Would I have to fill out any paperwork?
User avatar #128 to #127 - instalation ONLINE (06/25/2014) [-]
yes
User avatar #129 to #128 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (06/26/2014) [-]
Can I get it by fax?
User avatar #130 to #129 - instalation ONLINE (06/26/2014) [-]
sure
User avatar #131 to #130 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (06/26/2014) [-]
Well then, after getting the paperwork done, the bond shall be established.
User avatar #101 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
hey
User avatar #102 to #101 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Hello. Not trying to be rude, but, uh, how exactly did you get to my profile?

I just wanted to say thank you.
User avatar #104 to #103 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Anyway, I'll be off now. Cya.
User avatar #105 to #104 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I remember this. It was no problem at all. I was just trying to help. If you don't mind me asking, are you okay? What happened?
User avatar #106 to #105 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I'm pretty okay. It's been nearly a year but I think I'm finally about to actually drop him. I've decided on it now, and I'm pretty okay with the idea.

I just feel like I should have thanked you for your help and stuff.
User avatar #107 to #106 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I wish you only the best of luck. You deserve happiness, and especially to be treated well.

I appreciate that, but you really don't have to. We shouldn't have had to talk about that, but unfortunately, there are people in the world who abuse others. I just wanted to lend a hand. I'm glad I could help.
User avatar #108 to #107 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Thank you.
To be honest I don't know what else to really say..
User avatar #110 to #108 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Oh, hey, just as a side note, my offer still stands if you ever need to talk. But yeah, I hope everything works out well.
User avatar #111 to #110 - instalation ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I was just planning on stopping by. I might come back later. I just felt that thanks was in order
User avatar #112 to #111 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Okay, no problem. I'll be here if you do decide to come back for a chat. Again, it was really no trouble at all, but I appreciate the fact that you came back after nearly a year to thank me for that. It does mean a lot to me.
User avatar #109 to #108 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
That's okay. It's sort of hard to transition from the previous topic. I understand you might have planned to just stop by quickly, so if you'd like to go, I just want to say it was nice hearing from you again, and that you're okay. Again, best of luck to you.
User avatar #96 to #95 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
Yes, I see, yes.

After a full analysis of the content shown above, I have come to a single question: What is this?
User avatar #97 to #96 - revengeforfreeze (11/06/2013) [-]
I have no idea honestly
It's print screen taken from this video I watched

It's pretty funny I'll link it to you
www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M_9gtmMZpk
User avatar #98 to #97 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
I'm not quite sure what to make of that.
User avatar #99 to #98 - revengeforfreeze (11/06/2013) [-]
The video? Me neither. It's just cool.
User avatar #100 to #99 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
Can't disagree with you there.
User avatar #115 to #100 - revengeforfreeze (04/22/2014) [-]
It's been like, 6 months, damn. Time goes by too damn quickly... How was your life when I posted this and how is it today?
User avatar #116 to #115 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/22/2014) [-]
Well it was good then, and it's good now. Thanks for asking. How's yours been, and how was it then?
User avatar #117 to #116 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
That's great, man. Anything new except for the thoughts about ocd?
Ive been a bit confused but else great
User avatar #118 to #117 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
No, nothing in particular. Just school work and some other things. Mind if I ask what you're confused about?
User avatar #119 to #118 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
School is hard isn't it?
Also yeah I think I am confused about my fluctuating mood
User avatar #120 to #119 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
Eh, sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.
Any ideas for what could be causing it?
User avatar #121 to #120 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
Hiw about now
Music probably
User avatar #122 to #121 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
It's good. Been getting more homework than usual, though, but that happens sometimes.
That must be some intense music.
User avatar #123 to #122 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
It's for a good cause though the future. Lol cheesy
It is, this particular song is called sterile nails and thunderbowels and every time it makesme feel an eemotional storm..
User avatar #124 to #123 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
Is it a good song at least?
User avatar #125 to #124 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
I think.it is. Took me a while to get used to the vocals but they massively add on to the experience of despair.

User avatar #90 to #89 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/03/2013) [-]
I've watched it.

It was interesting. Being that it's experimental and has come from the creativity of your own mind, I can't even begin to imagine what it could represent, if anything at all. But I like it.
User avatar #91 to #90 - tvfreakuk (11/03/2013) [-]
At the moment what is there means pretty much nothing in terms of the visuals meaning.
But as the original premise was coming from my fear of procrastination, what I'm wanting it to be is that it's simply something I've made, that I can say I've made and can be proud of, show people, and have actually achieved something... And I guess that's the meaning
User avatar #92 to #91 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/03/2013) [-]
I understand what you're saying. Good luck with the rest of the video. Judging from this, I'm sure it'll turn out very well, even if it's nothing like this part.
User avatar #93 to #92 - tvfreakuk (11/03/2013) [-]
Yeah I'm currently working with Paper Mache in stop-motion of a moving eye with the lighting superimposed on top.
In a way, it's going to be about the procrastination thing again (with the eye being "distracted" by the lights) but it just makes it interesting visuals, rather than the narrative I had before about the computer that was just getting a little complicated
User avatar #94 to #93 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/03/2013) [-]
That sounds like it'll be really interesting. Best of luck.
#87 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #88 to #87 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/28/2013) [-]
That sounds great! Sounds like, when completed, it would be worthy of a festival run.
#80 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #82 to #80 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I do remember. Maybe I'll be able to catch it at a festival. Seeing as this is now the case, if it does get played at any festivals, can you let me know which ones?
#83 to #82 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #84 to #83 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I'd been thinking about going to some festivals with some friends anyway. Your film might coincidentally be playing at said festival.
#85 to #84 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #86 to #85 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I live near New York City and the surrounding areas, so I'd most likely be going to a festival in or near the city.

you still doing those minecraft story things?
User avatar #69 to #68 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
Not at the moment, no. I can't think of any other good ones to share.
User avatar #70 to #69 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
and you said something about having a server?
User avatar #71 to #70 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I used to have one up. I plan on creating a new one, but I haven't found the time to do so. Enabling the port forwarding on my router requires a reboot, and I don't know when I'd be able to do that without interrupting others.
User avatar #72 to #71 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
no one has played on my server for about 2 months now
User avatar #73 to #72 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I'll join you sometime if you want. I haven't found a good server in a while.
User avatar #74 to #73 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
it's on FTB at the moment
User avatar #75 to #74 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I am unfamiliar with FTB.
User avatar #76 to #75 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
never played any of the feed the beast mod packs? have you played tekkit before?
User avatar #77 to #76 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
No and no. At most I've messed around with some Bukkit plugins, but the server I used to host was either Bukkit or Vanilla with some client-side mods (TMI, any number of flying mods, maybe OptiFine).
User avatar #78 to #77 - zaxzwim (09/07/2013) [-]
well your in for a world of confusion then
User avatar #79 to #78 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I've seen in-depth Tekkit stuff before, but I have no idea how to do or use any of it. But hey, you can't learn if you don't mess around with it.

The following events took place on what I believe was the first server I ever hosted.

> Myself, Scooby Doo, and another kid are playing (we'll call that kid Goaty)
> Goaty is doing something far away from the town we built up (this was probably around Beta 1.2 or very close to that, so we couldn't hijack pre-built towns)
> Scooby Doo and I decide to have some fun
> Go into Goaty's house
> Place TNT under one single block in his house
> Put pressure pads on every single block in his house to trick him
> Goaty comes back
> "What is this?"
> Tell him it's just a game
> "No, you guys put TNT under my house."
> The jig is up but he still hasn't activated the TNT yet
> Goaty starts breaking all the pressure pads
> **** , we didn't anticipate this
> Get nervous that he won't blow up his own house
> He breaks the pressure pad he was supposed to step on
> I replace it
> At the time, he would always hit you the same number of times you hit him
> I punch him once
> I turn around and start running
> I step on the pressure pad to activate the TNT
> Scooby Doo sees this
> **** is going down
> We both rush out of the house
> Goaty just barely makes it
> Kaboom ************
> His house explodes
> Turn around to observe the damage
> 95% of it is gone
> Only some of the sides remain
> "WHY DID YOU GUYS DO THAT?"
> Tell him he stepped on the pressure pad and blew it up
> Goaty rages
> Scooby Doo and I head off somewhere else
> Goaty destroys the museum we made and some other stuff
> Looking back on it, we did deserve it
> To this day, whenever it comes up, I still tell him that it was his fault
> Don't know if he knows the truth or not

Kinda short, but still one of my favorite experiences in the game. If wanted, I have one last story I could share.
User avatar #67 to #66 - georgeojffs (08/13/2013) [-]

The following events took place on a server I used to run but unfortunately lost the world file for.

> Myself, Scooby Doo, HGA, and Friend A are online
> It's pretty much always just us
> We all wanted to try messing around with Bukkit, so I boot up a Bukkit server with a few plugins
> Have this one plugin that has a ******* of commands
> Scooby Doo and I decide to try them all
> At the moment, only he and I are OP-ed
> Go out into the desert to mess around so it doesn't affect the town
> Find one command that lets you spawn huge balls of material
> Let's try it out
> Spawn a huge ball of sponge
> Neato
> Decide to spawn an even bigger ball of water or ice or smething
> Probably has a radius of 50 or larger
> Entire server lags out
> Less than 1 FPS
> Even the town gets a lag spike for a few minutes
> After eventually getting back to town, the lag dies down
> Call that area "The Forbidden Lands" and never return to it
> Don't let it stop us from ******* around
> Move to unpopulated jungle-like area (jungles weren't a biome yet)
> Find a command called "delchunk" or something
> Gee I have no idea what this could do
> Decide to test it where Scooby Doo is standing
> Nothing happens
> "Maybe it doesn't work or something."
> Suddenly entire chunk disappears and he falls all the way through the world
> We share a hearty laugh for a minute or two
> Have no way to undo our mistake
> Have to block up missing chunk
> Only do top layer
> Wait for some poor soul to dig over there and find the horrors that lie below
> Go back into town after testing some less fun commands
> Find some commands that appear to cause large explosions
> Go to HGA's house
> Decide to test the explosion stuff practically right next to his home
> "But thedude, we don't know how large the explosion radius is."
> "Please, I know what I'm doing."
> Use a nuke command or something similarly destructive
> Aim the cursor fairly far away from HGA's house
> Press enter
> ************ .everywhere
> Massive explosion lags out the server for a moment
> The edge of the exploded area can't be more than 5 blocks away from HGA's house
> "WHAT THE **** WAS THAT?"
> HGA is visible distressed
> "Don't worry about it, it was nothing."
> Keep dicking around in town, yet more cautious of seemingly explosive commands
> Find a fireball command
> "It can't be that large."
> Fire one off near HGA's house because we clearly know what we're doing
> Let me tell you, this was not a small fireball
> Strikes the impact crater the nuke left
> HGA can see it from his house
> "GODDAMMIT WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING?"
> "Don't worry, we're being careful."
> Suddenly notice HGA's roof is on fire
> Initiate game type Firefighter, difficulty = insane
> Fire is spreading like STDs in a sex ed video
> Quickly make our way to the roof of his house
> Put it out quickly somehow, but don't question it
> Replace blocks before he notices anything
> Eventually finish going through commands in a less destructive manner

Sort of an anticlimactic conclusion, but not all stories have the best endings.

I have two more stories I remember that I can share, if there's still interest.
#62 to #61 - BlakHoleSun ONLINE (08/11/2013) [-]
Another good story.
User avatar #63 to #62 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (08/11/2013) [-]
Will do. I've been saving one of my personal favorites for last.
User avatar #64 to #63 - georgeojffs (08/12/2013) [-]
love these so much
User avatar #65 to #64 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (08/12/2013) [-]
I shall mention you too. I think this next one will be one of the better ones. Probably on a similar level to the Hunger Games story.

The following events have taken place on various server. I think this particular story was on one of my servers.

> Scooby Doo, Hunger Games Addy (we'll just abbreviate that to HGA from now on), and I are messing around on the server
> HGA is working on his house or something
> It's primarily wood-based
> Scooby Doo and I decide to have some fun and play firefighter, a "game" we made up
> The game involves setting someone's house on fire, turning around (or watching) for five or ten seconds
> This server was made after fire spread was nerfed in one of the updates, so we decide to give it a full twenty seconds before stepping in
> See HGA's house is mainly made out of wood
> Tell him we're going to have some fun
> Responds with something along the lines of "Okay, just don't **** around near my house"
> He has no idea what we're doing
> Perfect
> Scooby Doo and I go to the front of his house while he's working on the back
> We each set one block on fire
> Turn around and count to 20
> Turn around to face the house again
> Oh dear Lord what have we done
> Entire front of the house is one fire and spreading inside
> We both start to half-panic, half-laugh in that panicky sort of way\
> Both start punching out fires as fast as possible
> It does virtually nothing, as the fire just re-spreads to the blocks
> Start breaking blocks to prevent fire spread
> It's no use, blocks are breaking from fire anyway
> "WHAT THE **** IS GOING ON?"
> Oh no, it's HGA
> He is not a happy camper
> "Don't worry, we have this under control
> Entire second level of house practically gone at this point
> Suddenly, I have a genius idea
> Just fill entire house with water
> Go inside and place source blocks covering at least half the house
> Well the fire's gone
> Scooby Doo and I spend next ten minutes blocking up the source blocks and other pesky water leaks
> Spend next five minutes replacing floor
> Front of the house takes another five minutes, spruce it up a bit as an apology gift
> Scooby Doo and I wander off and HGA gives us no thanks even though we repaired his house
> Jokingly say "You're welcome."
> "YOU BURNED DOWN HALF OF MY HOUSE."
> "Yeah, sure we did."
> Scooby Doo and I bored again
> "You wanna play firefighter again?"

I'm pretty sure you can guess what happened next, although we turned around for a much shorter period of time. Only ten seconds, I think.

Anyways, should I tell another?
User avatar #58 to #53 - hammarhead (08/10/2013) [-]

I love hearing these. youshould invite other people, maybe make some OC. These are good.
User avatar #60 to #59 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (08/11/2013) [-]
I don't think they'd do well as OC. More of a short story kind of thing.

User avatar #57 to #56 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (08/10/2013) [-]
No worries. I never expect anyone to comment right away.

Will most likely post another story tomorrow.

I don't know why noone else is commenting, these are great stories man.

The following events took place on the FunnyJunk server

> Connect to FJ server with friend (the one I won the Hunger Games with, we'll call him Scooby Doo)
> FJ server is notoriously laggy at this point, but whatever, we still play without much trouble
> Decide to create base of operations
> Get as far away from spawn as we possibly can
> Start digging into the side of a mountain, think it's less noticeable
> Don't use a door, just block up the entrance with dirt
> Plant seeds inside base to reduce need to go outside
> Start mining downwards
> Eventually create living area further underground, reduces the need to go up to the top of our base
> Soon realize we're quickly running out of wood, friend and I go back upstairs
> find all of our crops missing and chests looted (thank Notch it was just basic material like dirt and stone)
> There's a sign where the crops used to be
> It says "Black Midgets" (I don't remember if there was anything else written, but it can't be more important than that)
> Wonder why the Black Midgets never went down the mine shaft, but I don't question it too much
> Fear the Black Midgets for the rest of the game
> Block up entire upstairs area and permanently move underground
> **** , we still don't have any wood
> We get another friend to come on (Friend A, who was unjustly eliminated from the Hunger Games match)
> After a few deaths, he finally makes it to us, brings wood with him
> We live happily for probably an hour
> At one point during this time, Scooby Doo mines his way into an adjacent mine shaft
> Follows it, finds some other guy's loot, and steals most, if not all of it
> I get paranoid for two reasons
> 1 - He's going to find our mine shaft because we're so close together
> 2 - He's going to be super pissed that Scooby Doo stole all of his stuff, and he's going to seek revenge
> Scooby Doo dismisses the idea
> After about an hour, I'm still concerned, but not as much
> About 30 minutes later from that point, we all decide to go get pizza (we usually play
at someone's house, so we're all together when we play)
> Our underground living area was dug into the side of the mine shaft, so we block it up with dirt so it's not noticeable if you're just walking down the corridor
> Keep in mind that this is not the same side Scooby Doo dug into that separated us from the other guy's mine shaft
> Also place all valuable items into our inventories so they can't be looted while we're not online
> Maybe 30-45 minutes pass
> Scooby Doo and Friend A are playing other games
> I quickly log back on to see what materials we had in our chest
> There is a guy standing in our living area
> nope.jpeg
> Quickly log off, tell Scooby Doo that the guy whose stuff he stole was in our base
> Don't know if it was actually that guy, but who else would it have been, there's virtually no other way to know we were there
> Give it about two minutes before I log back on, figure this guy could do whatever he's gonna do in that time span and be out
> Log back on
> I'm dead
> Must've lagged out when logging off, he killed me while I was lagging
> Stole at least 20 diamonds, countless stacks of iron and gold, etc.
> Also broke our beds
> The coordinates we had were for the upstairs area we blocked off to avoid more Black Midget attacks
> We have no way of getting back
> Notch, why have you abandoned me

It's been a couple of months, and I still have not logged back on to the FJ server since that day.

So, what do you guys think? I have more stories to share if you guys are interested.

User avatar #50 to #48 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (08/09/2013) [-]
Question: Is there a space between "Hole" and "Sun" in your name? I don't think FJ allows that, but the formatting makes it look that way to me, which is why I listed your name twice in the comment, one with and one without a space.

Also, it seems like there will be another story tomorrow.
