Ok. You are definitely the target audience of this post. (sorry for the slow response I got busy) You look fun, interesting and obviously cool because you play bass, but your style is holding you back.

Your hair cut is not great, buts its tough to work with since you have widows peak. I don't think the shaved head thing would work with you but you could try a really close buzz. I really think the best option is to keep the hair cut you have and rock hats when going out, I like the newsies hat thing you have going in one of the photos. You look best in that picture. Add in castro hats & fedora's & those straw fedora's that are popular You could try rocking a knit, but you may look like a douchebag... handsome, but douchey... An example of a nice one: a warning. Maybe the key is not to look like this
I would avoid: top hats, cowboy hats & other costumey type hats.

Ok that said... the wire frame glasses also scream geek on you. It really depends on the person... some people can pull them off with an older or professorly appeal, but it looks nerdy on you. Maybe try plastic frame glasses or contacts... might I suggest something simple and utilitarian like The look you want to go for is the one justin timberlake is rocking here:
You have a face that is somewhere between oblong & round, so small frames will make your face appear longer (i.e. not good), choose a frame that is bold, a bit bigger than the ones you have now. But not super huge because while they are in fasion now that trend will fade in a year or two and then you will be stuck with them. Now I can just hear you... glasses are expensive!!! I got cute square frames with pink accents and that cost me 170 and I have insurance.. might I suggest to get a pair of glasses for 10-30 bucks to try out the new look cheaply? I cannot vouche for the quality of them long term, but I bought some retro wing eyed glasses there and they are not half bad. (you have to figure out the numbers on your perscription right so you don't get something that will damage your eyes or give you a headache, but even if you just buy a pair with the wrong script for ten bucks to see...)

Also as with other posts... I would pick a defining sense of style and rock it - tell people who you are at a glance. Are there any particular ways of dressing that other people wear that you like? Or do you want to represent your interests... like a varying array of band t's paired with cool sneakers and nice jeans could be fine to emphasize you are a musician. Get back to me. Message me with more information and I will provide suggestions more tailored to you personally.

Question: are you from the midwest in the US?

A couple more tips: You have very lovely blue eyes, DO wear blue shirts. Your jeans are out dated. Get some that are bootcut or relaxed fit, get darker jeans. If your t shirts are really faded it looks sloppy, buy a new one, unless its your favorite t shirt ever or looks really good on you. This doesn't have to cost alot you can get a new looking shirt at any local thrift store for a couple bucks. Also try not to buy things that are super baggy, you are a thin guy and that it is just diminuitive of your stature, whereas if you wear something that fits a bit better you wear your size well. I am not suggesting muscle t shirts, just saying the red shirt where you are playing guitar is too baggy. The first picture... I think those shirts with the little buttons at the top are out dated (the blue shirt you are wearing under your fleece jacket). I would just get simple long sleeve shirts. Have you thought about a sleek sweater... I bet you would look really good in a nice blue sweater with your glasses (no hat with this look... ) like.... - probably a round neck would be better on you than a v neck, but you get the idea.

Cheers, I hope that helps. Oh and if you feel so inclined, I would LOVE if you could send me a couple picks if/or/when you try out some of my suggestions.

Some google sleuthing turned up the following: ADDvox voice amplifier, Naphon mini voice amplifier, Califone's Voice Saver, Hisonic Waistband Voice & Speech Amplifier (a relatively cheap version, but it has mixed reviews), Gigaphone (a pricier but potentially higher quality version). There is also this website with some other options.

A lot of these are fairly expensive. Since the use of a product like this is related to a medical issue you could try to see if insurance would cover it. It might be a long shot trying to get them to pay for something like this, but if you decide to go with one of the more expensive models it could be worth looking into. If you want to check out more options (there were many I didn't list) I had the best luck googling "voice amplifier" and "speech amplifier" as opposed to "megaphone". Hope this helps and best of luck :)

One of these might be your best bet.

I'm pretty sure the song you posted is mostly in the key of B-flat major, and I think it has a couple very short key changes thrown in.

The typical music box has around 12-30 playable notes and plays from 6-8 bars of music (usually less than 30 seconds). The cheaper crank ones you can find at toy stores tend to be on the lower end of that range (12-18 notes).

If you were to make your own, you'd probably want to stick to the most recognizable melody from the song (probably the first 30 seconds since it's 8 bars) and skip any part with a key change. The notes you'll mostly be using are Bb, C, D, Eb, F, G, A. If you choose a short segment, someone else can probably transcribe/simplify it for you better than I would (try /r/transcribe). I could probably peck it out on the piano, but I don't have any way of making sheet music. (Note: I suggest transcribing it a full step up to the key of C-major).

If you choose to attempt to make a real music box and not one of those paper strip kinds, you'll need to find a comb (the part of the music box that has all the notes on it) and a spool (the part with all the raised bumps that triggers the notes on the comb) or just take one apart, as this website's tutorial suggests.

I suggested transcribing the song to the key of C because it is a common key for music boxes, so you could much more easily pick one up at a toy store. I can't think of any songs in B-flat off the top of my head, so I'm not sure it would be very easy to find a comb in B-flat. Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, When the Saints Go Marching In, and The Entertainer are all usually in C, and they're pretty easy to find.

How much time do you have for this? I don't have a lot of free time, but I might be able to help put together a template if you decide to go with one of the paper strip kinds.

>Settle, or be alone.

Holy fucking shit, this is the WORST ADVICE I've ever heard.

Getting older makes it EASIER to find someone. I don't know how old you're talking, but at 27-35ish it's MUCH EASIER to get a girl - because at that age THEY are willing to settle - they want to marry and have kids SOON. THEY ARE MORE WILLING TO SETTLE FOR YOU.

What you gotta do is know what to look for. Check for a ring. Then check for body language. Look for eye contact, a smile, playing w/ hair, etc.... BUT look for more subtle things...

Good signs:

Tilting her head and exposing her neck to you. Exposing her palms/wrist to you. Look where her knees/feet are pointed... towards you is good, towards the door is bad (they'll point their legs at where she subconsciously wants to be). If her legs are crossed and she's bouncing her foot, that's another good sign.

If she displays any more than one of these signs toward you - SHE IS SINGLE AND THINKS YOU'RE ATTRACTIVE. Go up and introduce yourself. She will be open to talking to you and meeting you. Unless you completely fuck up, it will be simple to get her number and set up a date.

THERE ARE A SHITLOAD OF AVAILABLE GIRLS OUT THERE. And you and anyone else can win them over.

Good luck.

PS - a lot of the body language info came from this book (which was a HUMUNGOUS help for displaying and reading subtle clues regarding people's social behaviors and meeting the right people - in my situation, girls that are single and looking).

What you need to do is open the side of your computer and identify what kind of expansion slot you have on your motherboard - PCIe looks like this, AGP looks like this and PCI looks like this (for the PCIe slot, the x16 version is the one you need).

Now, for most Steam games you'll only need about a 1GB graphics card to run them on at least medium performance settings.

If you have a PCIe slot, I recommend something like this (UK) or this (US).

If you have an AGP slot, I recommend something like this (UK) or this (US) (I know these are 512MB, but it's difficult to find anything higher in memory for an AGP slot at a reasonable price - most Steam games should still run fine on this card, but maybe with slightly lower performance settings!).

I really doubt your PC is so old that it uses PCI graphics, so I won't list any PCI graphics cards here :)

When it arrives, it's a simple case of clicking the card into the corresponding slot on your motherboard and screwing it into the back panel of your computer. Then, plug your monitor into the new graphics card, install the necessary drivers and you're good to go!

Good luck!

Sometimes, there's an extra cable to connect for a fan, but I don't think this applies with any of the cards I've linked you to :)

I've had a hacked PSP for about 4 years now, so I can give you additional help if you need it still...

I believe the most you can do on 6.2 is use the Half Byte Loader without a Pandora battery

I can give you more help if you PM me (yes, I know where you can get games, but I'm not posting links openly)

Once you hack it, you'll want to install 5.00 M33-6 or 5.50 GEN-D. GEN-D is more popular because it's newer, a lot of the old die hards using 5.00 M33-6 for homebrew, which shouldn't be too much of an issue. Once you install custom firmware you'll need prometheus to run the newer games.

I'd recommend getting at least a 4GB Memory stick (it needs to be a MS duo to fit in a PSP.) Sandisk makes the best, and they can be gotten for $15 on amazon.

On that note, since you're a caregiver, you can get amazon prime for free, so you'll get 2 day shipping for free.

[edit] And, regardless, I recommend hacking PSPs because they're really slow reading from UMDs, loading games for memory sticks reduces load times by a noticeable amount.

Sweeeeeet, thanks! It's a moderately famous (for a teapot, I suppose) example of self-defeating design. It's featured on the cover of The Design of Everyday Things and is a prized part of the author's personal teapot collection. I have a friend who really wants one. If you can CAD it, I can get it 3D printed in ceramic, fired and glazed. If I can do all that before some undetermined time in September, I'll have a lovely gift for when said friend (hopefully) passes an important milestone.

Again, thank you so much for even attempting this. PLEASE let me do something nice for you in return!

For good all-round coverage towards A+ and basic networking knowledge, work through this book, and then read through this book (whether you take the test(s) or not). You might be able to find older editions in a library. Those are also good, but be aware that you will then need to read a bunch of PC mags for several weeks or months to bring yourself up to date. Or maybe you can also bring yourself up to date with Wikipedia. The commercial aspect of magazines however gives you a good idea of what's currently on the market -- something which Wikipedia doesn't necessarily do. So I'd recommend either older editions of the books from a library, and then following that up with a hefty pile of PC mags + Wikipedia, or the most recent editions of those books and maybe just two or three PC mags and just checking the odd thing online. That should get you a decent foundation. As to whether you'll then subsequently want to progress to more advanced (vendor) certifications such as the ones mentioned by the parent poster (and which ones of those) -- that'll be something you'll be best equipped to decide once you get there.

Just like, random recommendations?

For a fresh twist on some songs you might already know, how about some college a cappella groups? Their albums are like compilations of a wide variety of interesting covers. I'm no expert on the genre, but I've been enjoying some albums from a random assortment of all-male groups lately, like Vanderbilt Melodores' 'Encore', Dear Abbeys' 'Proclamation', or Dartmouth Aires' 'Black Tie Affaire'. For something non-collegiate with more original songs and less of a studio sound, Street Corner Symphony's 'Unpractice Makes Perfect.' For an entirely live album and a lot of bang for your buck, Hyannis Sound's 'Annual Bootleg, Vol 10'.

Thank you very much, haha :)

These are the speakers im using for my desktop, and theyre incredibly clear, crisp, and the bass is brilliant.
For the price theyre the best you can get.

u/coperez · 1 pointr/Favors

Ohhhh I know it would be more than awesome if I got Donkey Kong Country Returns

I know it's a little bit more expensive but I will share this with my 3 siblings which would be more appropriate to spread the happiness


Survival Straps if safety and being prepared is important

My cats aren't fans of it, otherwise I'd throw whatever coupons I had your way.

On a lark, I checked the best price I could find online. If you've got Amazon Prime, you can get the 6lb bags on a subscription basis for $11.36/ea + free shipping. That'd save you even more than the couponed $5.99 3lb bags you were buying.

Wish I could be of more help.

u/daskalam · 2 pointsr/Favors

Thank you so much!!

It's this one here, but on audio cassette!

I had found and bought the soundtrack, but I need the actual album! Actually even if I just find "disk 1" in tape, it'll be excellent.

I am so excited, thank you so so much! Thank you!
