  1. I mean look, its all about power isnt it...


    The US is the same as any of the other countries in the world, they will get involved in conflicts where they stand to gain something (money, resources, political influence, etc), & will avoid wars where there is no gain.That is generally the rule although of course not always.


    We should have stood up to China when it invaded Tibet.That was one instance that comes to mind where there was an unprovoked attack on a defenseless country, & did anyone step in? No.Apart from India who allowed the refugees into their country, where other neighbours had refused due to fear of the Chinese.


    The reason we didn't help the Tibetans probably has something to do with the fact that we have borrowed most of our money from China to fund our "war on terror". If we did anything to piss them off they could easily fuck us over.

  2. I'm excited to play Too Human on xbox. I've heard the controls are frustrating sometimes but it's rare that the controls screw up and the game is amazing and has endless possibilities for character construction. I'll probably rent it and then maybe buy it too!

  3. Check out reaper, it's free and good. You're going to need some sort of mic and input. USB mics sounds like shit but if you need a quick fix go to guitar center and pick one up. If not, get a simple 2 mic pre USB 2.0 interface. If you're just going to be doing videos you probably don't care about uber elitist quality that much.


    There is hardware out there that will zap the lead vocals out of any song. Not sure how it works or how well it works, but it's out there.

  4. Glad to hear that people like the Herban Cowboy stuff - they make nice products, and they're a really great vegan-friendly company to work with.


    If anyone is interested in trying the cologne, now is definitely the time. We bought a HUGE amount of their overstock as I believe they're changing the packaging in the coming months, and it's going for only $17.95 per bottle now instead of the usual $28.95, so it's way cheaper than the normal cost. Just wanted to pass this along!


    Oh man, that's a damn good price. You temptress you!

  5. Veganessentials.com


    I get most of my hygiene stuff from there. My face scrub, astringent, soap, condoms, massage oil. I also got some candles today. It usually gets to my house within 2 days because I live so damn close to Milwaukee.

  6. Herban Cowboy is amazing. I need a little fragrance sometimes when I get bad BO. Even Thai Crystals only slightly thwart my body odor, even without meat and cheese, etc. etc. But I just use the deodorant. I think I might snag some of the cologne if I ever get set up on a fancy date by my friends again. It's only happened once so far.

  7. Yeah, my buddy Jim has a pretty serious girlfriend.


    And she's Republican. Well more libertarian now(and not in the european sense of the word) but I still terrorize her with my ideals.


    She's cool though.


    Enough of that! More beards!


    I love the cut I have in the picture and right now. Neck beards ftw!

  8. Wow, cheaper than Chicago is! Guess things have changed. I remember just a few years ago Portland was wayyy more expensive than Chicago!




    Not to argue, but this just isn't true. 2 years ago it was cheaper than it is today.


    My 2 bedroom in the burbs 2 1/2 years ago was $690. It was a brand new building. I saw plenty of 2 bedrooms during that time in the burbs for $475-$525


    Obviously in the city is more, but the prices were def lower 2 years ago then they are today.


    There are some neighborhoods that are higher than the prices I listed but not many. Particularly the pearl district is higher, but seeing as I don't know anyone under 30 that would actually want to live there I didn't bother listing that. I live in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Portland (especially for vegans) and 2 bedrooms are easily found between $900 and $1300.


    I'm sure the prices were lower, but comparatively it was up there with Chicago. I'd say that it seems to be pretty reasonable compared to Chicago nowadays.


    A good two bed in a good neighborhood in Chicago can get up to be 1600 bucks. MORE if you're downtown unless you have a deal with a college. I'd probably live in the city if I could find a studio for as cheap as I bet it can get in Portland.

  9. Yeah man, no trick to growing facial hair. Just let it go and it will either grow or not, it's pretty much all genetic.


    Maybe someday if you're lucky you can even look like this.


    I see your beard and raise you...






    Me with Magnus and my buddy Jim @ the Chicago diner.


    That was last summer. My beard is almost that massive again. I call it my "fuck you i'm single and not trimming this mother-fucker and being highly ironic because it's summer and it's hot and itchy" beard.

  10. Portland is def NOT expensive.


    In a crappy area you can get a 2 bedroom for $550-$700



    In a so so area you can get a 2 bedroom apt for $700-$900


    In a good area 2 bedroom goes for $800-$1000


    Great area $900-$1200 for a 2 bedroom.


    Lotus would be the best one to ask about massage therapy laws.


    Also studios and 1 bedrooms can be had for pretty darn cheap.


    Wow, cheaper than Chicago is! Guess things have changed. I remember just a few years ago Portland was wayyy more expensive than Chicago!


    What about Apartment prices? Some people who would want to move to Portland would probably prefer an Apartment( Especially if there single )


    xdarthveganx just said what they are.


    Oh damn. I didn't catch that. Thanks.


    The prices were for a two bedroom. So I'm sure( Hopefully ) that a one bedroom( Or a studio which would be what I'd prefer ) would be relatively cheaper.


    I'm still weighing put my options of where I shall move once the time comes. Currently it's between Portland or the L.A. Area.



    I personally would never move to L.A. even if someone paid me to. Just not my cup of tea. It's fun to visit though, that's for sure!

  11. Well i've heard that portland can be very expensive, but you can always find good deals in even the most expensive cities to live in. Hood River is super beautiful and even though it gets pretty touristy, it isn't cheap or gaudy. I've only been to Oregon once but I love it. I may even consider living there eventually because the music scene in the pacific northwest area is actually pretty good.
