  1. Whats New on VC

    Hi We did a system update today that featured the following changes. - Security improvements (too many, too boring to explain) - Perfomance improvements (too many, too boring to explain) - When you mouseover the badge showing who liked a post, you will now see a larger list of who liked that post. You can still click to get the full list. - Ratings now show half-stars for the average (for example, if one user votes 3 stars and another 4, it will show 3 and a half stars) and there is now an indication if you have rated something. - When you are writing a new topic there is now a Preview button where you can see how the post would look once posted in phone, tablet or desktop. - There is a Spoiler button to highlight part of your text as spoiler - More tools on the toolbar when writing a topic. Check them out! - You can now choose to ignore notifications for being mentioned in posts by particular users. - You can now filter searches by specific forums/categories. - The filter dropdowns now have an "Apply" button for better usability (previously you had to click outside the dropdown). - Hitting back from a clicked item in any activity stream now remembers your position and loaded results. Other enhancements and improvements. Let me know if you have any questions!! The system is indexing all the post so the search is not working temporarily! Thank you.
  2. Swizness's Instrumentals

    I am a Hip-Hop artist currently living at home trying to make a living off selling instrumentals. I have been producing for a year now and have put together an assortment of tracks on the web for people to listen to. Here is a link to my Sound-Cloud. https://soundcloud.com/swizness Recently I have made over 80 tracks and only have posted about 49 of them on the internet. I have learned how to produce through my homies who own a studio in the San Francisco area. Basically my homies are currently living in San Fran and they let me come visit every once in awhile. They have taught me a lot, but I'm trying to reach further and make my own living off of producing. Through producing I have learned what it means to have perseverance and that it takes a lot to more to make have the skill level that most producers have. The things I get from music are more than just enjoyment. As for me music give me the willpower to keep living and gives me a way to put my feelings into a song a share it with the world. As far as I can tell I am far from getting anywhere with music, but I am still persistent and trying to share my ability with whom ever is willing to take notice. Right now I am Eighteen years old and living with my parents in Seattle. I am asking you, the users of reddit, to check out my instrumentals and what they have to offer. What I hope to accomplish is to grow as a producer while I'm selling my instrumentals online. I usually takes me about a one to two hours to make a beat and I plan on uploading about maybe one a day to my site. Each song only costs a dollar.

  3. This question's always bugged me! I use last.fm as much as possible, and obviously this excludes vinyl, but it bases listens to total song plays, not total length of all songs listened to. I wrote a little web app tonight that takes your iTunes library and finds out what artists you listen to most, by taking track length and multiplying it by play count. http://www.jacobraccuia.com/most_listened.php So if you use iTunes, check it out and post your most listened to artists! ( note: if you have a tooon of songs, it might time out. it worked fine for me at 6000 songs, god knows how it'd handle 40k ) here are mine: Total time spent listening to music: 292 days 2 hours 19 minutes 59 seconds Mogwai: 5228 total plays - 18 days 5 hours 39 minutes 5 seconds Okkervil River: 4992 total plays - 15 days 3 hours 5 minutes 50 seconds La Dispute: 4038 total plays - 11 days 7 minutes 29 seconds The Decemberists: 3164 total plays - 10 days 31 minutes 34 seconds Brand New: 3145 total plays - 9 days 5 hours 58 minutes 11 seconds The Flashbulb: 4638 total plays - 8 days 23 hours 45 minutes 27 seconds The Dear Hunter: 2509 total plays - 7 days 21 hours 41 minutes 29 seconds Manchester Orchestra: 2412 total plays - 7 days 53 minutes 17 seconds The Cat Empire: 2109 total plays - 6 days 16 hours 1 minutes 24 seconds Kevin Devine: 2249 total plays - 6 days 12 hours 47 minutes 29 seconds RX Bandits: 1998 total plays - 5 days 19 hours 1 minutes 52 seconds Hostage Calm: 2730 total plays - 5 days 13 hours 59 minutes 42 seconds Yanni: 1708 total plays - 5 days 5 hours 19 minutes 3 seconds Glassjaw: 1590 total plays - 4 days 20 hours 10 minutes 24 seconds All India Radio: 1635 total plays - 4 days 4 hours 9 minutes 10 seconds Make Do And Mend: 1719 total plays - 4 days 45 minutes 50 seconds Against Me!: 1920 total plays - 3 days 23 hours 13 minutes 50 seconds
  4. I love old band shirts. I search high and low for them at Goodwill, get them for a buck sometimes on eBay, and still have some from my youth that I cherish and wear to this day. While girls and friends have come and gone, my band shirts have been with me longer than anything I own and every time I open my drawer I get a smack of nostalgia and love it. My mom threw out shirts of mine after I moved out after high school graduation and some have torn or been traded or gifted or sold, but these three are the ones I've held onto the longest! The Cadillac Blindside one was ordered with These Liquid Lungs back in 02 when it came out, and the other two are from 03 I believe. SO, what are some of your guys' older most cherished shirts? Stuff from your youth and whatnot. Any cool stories go along with them? Show stories, pre orders, etc. Pics greatly encouraged!
  5. This album rules and I thought it was appropriate for me to share it with y'all! CHECK IT OUT: http://sacramaniacs.com/releases/loud-fast/ This is what the page says about RAD: “It is easy to anticipate the sound of a punk, hardcore or metal record by reading its title (for the most part). Dangers‘ Anger. Bathory‘s Blood Fire Death. Wormrot‘s Abuse. It’s rather convenient. Such is the case with female-fronted, Sacramento-based punk band RAD and their delectable cassette tape tentatively titled Loud & Fast. Yeah. Guess what, fellas? It’s f**king loud, and it’s f**king fast. So f**k you. Twenty songs in eleven minutes. Oh, hell yes! Two of the twenty songs pass the one-minute mark; eight of ‘em hardly pass the half-minute mark. You better believe this album is going to kick your ass! Like I mentioned earlier, this is a female-fronted punk band. That chick on the cover is Lory Gil and instead of employing furious screams reminiscent of bands likePunch or Glasses, she shouts frantically as if she were the head of some hardcore band from the eighties. The band is a punk/thrash crossover group which is why the album goes by quicker than taking a dump in a Taco Bell restroom. Despite it’s fast pace, each song has it’s own personality. “We’re RAD” is a brilliant intro to the album. A catchy riff, thumping drums, and a thick bass-line call for some serious head-bobbing. One can imagine a crowd of young kids circling around an empty space getting ready to mosh their pathetic hearts out of their hairless chests. Then “You’re a Dunzo” kicks in and all of the pent-up energy explodes onto the audience, erupting into one hell of an angry mosh pit where kids are dancing in cut-off jeans, dirty Vans shoes and Iron Lung band t-shirts. The band continues their speedy setlist with “This is Not a Final War” and “I’m an Adult” as kids start to fall on the ground before being pulled back into the action by some obese hardcore dude, already busting a sweat in the muggy atmosphere of the dank warehouse the band’s playing in. Although the lyrical themes don’t go beyond subjects like skateboarding, moshing and other forms of stupid violence, there are some great, sometimes hilarious lyrical moments throughout the album. Lines like “Shove your butt-pills in your dick! Moshing is our medicine!” are memorable and chant-inducing. There are also miniature moments that I find are strokes of punk genius like the three-note solo that ends “This is Not a Final War” and the end of “Banned in Citrus Heights” where it’s just the sound of pounding drums and the band shouting “I got out from work today!” RAD’s Loud & Fast feels like a thousand punches hitting you at a thousand miles per hour. Looking back at it now, I have played this album over ten times while writing this review (which isn’t very long to begin with). If you dig loud and fast music that you can’t scrobble on Last.fm, then get your hands on Loud & Fast as soon as you can. It’s rad.” [Via: SputnikMusic] EDIT: I got the album title mixed up in the thread title! Whoops!
  6. Well, it's something different I guess. http://www.designboom.com/technology/a-record-made-from-ice-plays-music-by-the-shout-out-louds/
