actually,
I know from my previous job that there is a by-product of steel production that we call "slak" in Dutch.
slak = snail in English.

I don't hate. Hate is a feeling and I don't have any.

Just kidding...

I hate the fact that I can't live in Australia.
I hate fucking Germans and the fucked up German society.
I hate that I can't have a dog.

The Sokal Hoax was complete bullshit, he got published in a no-name journal that told him that his text is shit and basically only published him for the publicity because he was famous academic submitting a text to their little-known journal.

I hate how they gotta use color filters and saturation pretty much everywhere nowadays.
Of course it adds a certain extra atmosphere to stuff, no doubt,
but if you start using it in every god damn film or series,
and you're over doing 90% of the time,
it just gets annoying as fuck. :|

I was briefly watching something yesterday because my oldest was watching it.
Some love story/Robert Pattinson hair commercial disguised as a vampire story...
Half of the shots, if not more were like only blue/grayish colors...
50 shades of fucking grey all right... :?

It makes you nostalgic to the Technicolor days or something... :)
Or even black 'n white films with soft focus... :D

I hate it how when they have some shot in a film or tv series that includes a baby,
they always seem to use the same 4 or 5 samples.
(you can even notice the same time intervals between the samples playing)
And there's almost never any bloody automation in it anywhere.
Not in pitch, not in volume, not in length,...
And you can sure as fuck forget about realistic reverb attached to the samples !
Whether it's a junkie mother with sibling in some abandoned subway station or a non that just gave birth to the local bishop's love child in some medieval cathedral, the reverb on the crying baby samples is just all the same.
What are we ? 1985 ? :shock: :shock: :?

I can assure you that when I was a younger breeder,
I was perfectly able to tell when one of my poor girls (that ended up having me as a father) was crying,
even if this happened in the company of many other babies yelling for totally undeserved attention,
I was still somehow able to tell if the highly annoying sound came from my own offspring or not...

That's when I usually knew it was just the right moment to dip their pacifier in whiskey and a little MDMA,
put in my professional earplugs, and leave the rest to the mrs after she went to grab me another beer or two...

Fact : Only thing original about the sound of a real life crying baby is the proper automation in the audio output... :lol:

Honestly though, is it really that expensive to just mildly torture some real life babies for a day or five and then sample the sounds ?
This way we can build a proper sample library that we could use and abuse for countless years to come !

Unfortunately, my girls are already to old for that shit, but I'm fairly sure some of our more younger members are aspiring techno DJ's/producers here who have a GF or mrs that have been secretly dreaming about starting a family any time now.
Why not combine the emotional with the practical, and give in to their naïve hopes and dreams while getting ourselves a unique chance to build our own decent original sample library ?
My inbox gets spammed on a daily basis with new sample libraries that are about as interesting as watching paint dry... So surely there must be a market for these types of sounds ?
It's time for you young aspiring fathers to put one in for the sound design team ! ;)

Well, I think we Germans aren't more or less fucked up than any other western society. I hate mankind in general.

Could put a few more "opening a door" samples in there, too. As far as I know there is only one sample out there which they use over and over again. I'm sure you all know the one.

Hope that didn't sound super racist, I'm a Kartoffel, too ;) You're probably right though, but I haven't lived in another European country for long enough. I find English people a lot less annoying than Germans though. They are less miserable and way friendlier or at least pretend to. And they know how to fucking queue up for the public transport.

Hmmm. I agree to a certain degree. Maybe that explains why my best mate is an 40 years old East London cunt.

it's probably the one that was already in the General Midi SFX samples (birds, gunshot, helicopter,...).
For those not old enough to have ever heard them : they're a horribly cheap set of sounds made in the 80's to be included on many romplers at the time. You can still find them on some machines.

Hey, you're a German, you're allowed to hate Germans if you want to.
I married a German, my kids are fucking half German,
so I'm allowed to make fun of the Germans. :)

I think you do have a good point about the Germans having a thing with being miserable.
Looking depressed and complaining was something I witnessed a lot as well when I lived there.
But there are many even far worse.
Take Russians... always melancholic, and always total drama for everything...
And the British are more polite in general, but when they get drunk, they do become a horrible sight.
And they sure know how to get terribly drunk.
They officially even take the highest amount of drugs per person in Europe when they take drugs.

You say that like it`s a bad thing.
Personally it makes me feel just a little bit proud.

:lol: :lol:

hey, I have no problems with that,
but it does make the risk to overdosing a lot higher,
and that's apparently a regular risk, according to medical workers.
