Hey folks,

I am putting together a project I've been working long and hard (oooo baby!) on. 

A major part of this requires that I gather a LOT of sound samples.
I primarily need "monster sounds".  By that, I mean:

More like Godzilla & Predator & The Aliens & stuff like that.  Although something like Freddy Kreuger may be a "monster" technically, and we may all love it when he says "Daddy can't help you now!"...  That's not really what I need.  I need more along the lines of:

Growls
Roars
Snorts
Snarls
Hisses

Stuff like that. 
Some of them can and will be used directly, some will be edited into new and layered tracks to produce custom sounds.

I would LOVE some ideas and feedback from you folks in this area.  Movies, Video Games, Anime / Cartoons, TV shows, WHATEVER!
Tell me about some cool monsters or similar sound effects that you love, or think might be helpful.  Just a name is fine, but if you know specifically where I can snag audio files from a web site or something, that would make you an angel!


Here is a list of stuff I have been looking into so far, or have obtained sound clips / files from:
LOST
Godzilla (and assorted Kaiju friends, such as Gamera, Gigan, Various Ultraman Creatures etc etc)
Cloverfield
Sleestaks (fuck yes!)
Bioshock
Doom
Ju-On


Various animal sounds:
Whales
Hyenas
Various insects
etc
etc
etc
Still collecting more of these as I go, too.


If anyone knows where I can get my mitts on an audio clip of that awesome insect sound that Pumpkinhead makes, I would be thrilled, I've had a hell of a time with it.  I might have to sit down with the DVD and try to extract it, but that's hard what with people yelling, gun shots, explosions and background music.


I know there are a lot of simple and obvious things that I have forgotten, over looked, and probably never even heard of, so ANY idea you have would be awesome, please share and help me to make some art!

ok, some of you have been doing the '10 x-mas wishes' thing. and asking me to do it too.

well, let me start by saying that i will not do it in the format that everyone else is because i don't care about much of anything. i have absolutely no money or time this year because i'm moving and shit so basically there'll be no x-mas for me this time around. it's not a big deal, i've missed halloween before, which is WAY worse than missing x-mas


BUT i WILL give you a list of 10 wishes!
(obviously, these arent something that any of you would or could provide, but you asked for it, you got it. toyota!)

1. Super Powers. this is what i want most in the world. i'm not too picky, i'd take most ANY super powers. there are a couple of you who read this, who are already convinced that i DO have some super powers, and be that as it may, i'd like to have some that i can use in other circumstances. not that i am dissing or ungrateful for the ones you think i have.
i would most like to have some awesome mind powers. like Tetsuo had in the Akira manga. only with out the pain and drug addiction. it'd make going to the mall awesome.

2. Diplomatic Immunity. this would be good. every time i'm driving a distance i think about it. mostly i'd use my diplomatic immunity to drive 125 on the highway and get there faster. i mean i wouldnt be like killing strippers or nothin. so again, if you got a hook up... hook it up, yo!

3. Snuggles. i can not begin to tell you how much i miss snuggles. i guess i never realized it. i've always had the 'fueled by hugs' hilarity, but i didnt realize how actually serious it really was. i can feel so lonely sometimes. i'd really really fucking love it if someone would just hold me. snuggles for the win.

4. Neural Implants. go read Neuromancer by William Gibson. then come back and we'll discuss number four here. we'll fucking slot mandarin and discuss this shit in chinese. then we can admire my nice new fingernails.

5. For [livejournal.com profile] industrikitty to live closer. i totally dont mind going to see her any(and every) time i can(and that she can put up with me :P ), but the drive does cut into time we could spend being awesome together. i <3 Jello.

6. Indian Food. this wasnt intended to be on the list, and i'll probably get some on tuesday, but DAMN if i'm not hungry right now, so it worked (or is that demanded) it's way in.

7. You. there are SO many of you i've met on here that are so wonderful and awesome and so very important to me. i think about many of you each and every day. "I want to take you all under my broken wing." i would love to meet many of you (and no, not just for the sex ;) hahaha). we could attend that indian food together! luckily enough, this is a wish that gets fulfilled one person at a time, and it's fucking awesome! i might get to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] jellykarma sometime soon (she's totally one of my favourite lesbians!) and i have plans to meet with [livejournal.com profile] uglyshyla in january. which is AWESOME cause last time, like over a year ago when we were gonna meet up, she got sick :( maybe this time i wont make her ill heh

8. a sword. not just any sword. i have a few. even some good ones. but i mean like a legendary one. possibly magic. or made of space age unbreakable never dulls light weight...stuff. which is basically magic! this goes well with all the other wishes, especially numbers 1 and 9. although it could help with number 6 a lot too :P

9. i wish Nigel Rupert Toatwater III had magical powers, an the brains and kindness (he'd need a lot more of both) to be able to use them correctly. he would be able to fly, and talk and change his size and shape. he could get big enough that i could ride him. or small enough to hide in my pocket and come to work with me. he could teleport, and stick to any surface. he could also communicate with all other forms of animal life.

10. peace on earth, global communion and all that other bullshit you're supposed to wish for.

i'll start my very own LJ meme here, we'll see if anyone picks it up and runs with it.
of course this has likely been done before, but i've never seen it, and after all, it is all about me...






Pretend that it is my funeral, and you have been asked to come up and say a few things
poisonedgrace: (luffy falls)
welcome to the interactive portion of my day!

i'd actually like some feedback from you people on this one. together, we can slowly unravel the mysteries of the universe!(tm)

for this session, we'll delve into one of the more horrid mysteries of all time:

the dreaded mystery of "I Love You, But I'm Not IN Love With You"

maybe someone said this to you!
maybe you have said this to someone!
perhaps someone said it to a friend!
perhaps you heard it on a TV show!

reply to this post with your thoughts / opinions on this terror!

have you used this line? if so, why?
have you had this used on you? any idea why?
seen it used?
any general opinions?

who uses it more? men? women?

what does it REALLY mean?

are there any legitimate uses of the statement?


and some observations from yours truly:

it would seem that one (the only?) legitimate use of this phrase would be thusly -
it's a situation where 2 people have been friends for a long time, maybe close friends. sibling close perhaps. and eventually one of them (person A) professes the deep and undying crush of years, and wishes to move the relationship along that path, but the other (person B) has simply always thought of person A as a close/best friend, and does not want to go there.

in this situation, or any reasonable variation of this situation, i can understand and support the use of such a phrase.

otherwise, i'm not seeing it. it confuses and bewilders me.

anyone have any experience with it. heck, i even tried a web search for the phrase, and i seemed to get a TON of pages about the Bible?!?! ummmm ok?

what about a situation where people are seeing one another, or "in a serious relationship" or whatever... been together for a while, and the phrase comes into play?
not as a tool for "i am leaving, and this is why" or anything, but just a general thing that is there on a regular basis.

a relationship with all these things:
"i want to be with you"
"i do not want to see anyone else"
"yes, i am attracted to you"
"yes, i want to have sex with you"
"i hope it lasts as long as possible"
and many other things that would, and should be there in a real, good, and positive relationship,
AND the "I Love You, But I'm Not IN Love With You"

how does all THAT fit together?
what does it REALLY mean?

"i do not know what love is"
"i am afraid"
"i don't know what i want"
"i'm a big stinkin jerk-face"
"i am using you"
"eeny oony waana!"
"i am afraid that maybe my heart is like pandora's box"

i know this post is kinda long, and it's not some fun filled meme or survey or anything, but it's real.
and i'd really appreciate some/any interaction on the topic.

even if you don't really feel like you have anything specific to say, or you're just passing by, i'm really curious even about popular opinion on the topic.

so please, share.
"anything helps"

What Is Good?!
poisonedgrace: (upside-down me)
i made a smart ass comment in a post (or maybe it was a reply, i forget, but i know i said i!) recently, about how i was going to force myself to have self esteem by pretending i had way too much, and seeing if a little of it would rub off.
well here we go. i made a poll to determine if anyone thinks i am cool or not.

plus, i just really wanted to se how the polls work, since i never made one.

here we go. i want your honest opinions, even if you don't like me.



[Poll #117370]




HAH! did you REALLY think you were gonna get away with not liking me? i have WAY TOO MUCH SELF ESTEEM for that, bucko!

hehe this was fun, and funny. i should have more retardo polls(tm) in the future.


oh, and incase you're just tuning in, or you're really stupid or something, it's supposed to be funny. i'm really a nice guy so maybe that's not true... but i'm certainly not stuck up.
