Pettis getting mauled!

to the opposite leg.
dont forget that.


Just gonna chime in here really quick.. Woodley said he knew one of his legs/knees were hurt from the td. So he would have went after the other one next. I also do think Woodley was kinda dominating that fight with some big hits and td's. That being said, I'm a huge Condit fan aand don't know how it would have turned out if not for the injury.


Also, I know this is way old but I just saw it for the first time and was wondering what you guys think of the Condit vs Ellenberger fight?

We'd love to... but you'd need to get a new amp to get the joke.


Well.. I guess I do need a new one..
Quote by T00DEEPBLUE
What you really need is a new amp.


I love how this always seems to come up in threads asking serious questions. I know iit's obviously some kind of ug/pit joke bit don't know the story behind it. Anyone care to fill me in?
Quote by T00DEEPBLUE
The seller must've blown your dick to get a 6505 at that price.

Talk about screwing yourself over.



Actually he was kind of a jerk believe it or not, even tried to talk me down even more after he there. Yeah def the worst transition in tone I've even had
Quote by Jon777
Just a heads up but I think you meant Ibanez RG4EXQM1, not Ibanez RG4EXMQ1.

And no, I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of guitar models. >____> Google just didn't give me anything when I searched for your model.


Whoa! I'm a ruhtard! Good catch man. I decided to also leave out the qm since it would be harder for people to find online with that name. Thanks bruh!
Quote by Hardlycore
WHAT.


I know. That was f*cked up. I'm still upset but I actually needed that for rent after losing my job. And the best part is, the guy that bought it tried to lowball me another 10$ after he got there. His excuse wa the atm and only getting 20's

Edit: also sold an sm57 and 58 both in perfect condition for 100$ Idk if that's as bad though haha

I hope you know this was legally binding. How should I send my shipping info?


Looks like you and 457 undead are gonna have to rock paper scissors for it.. 2.50 and a Dr pepper is good but so is me sending him 200 to buy it. :p
Quote by Baby Joel
It's probably just enough for you to get a new amp.


Which is what you really need.


I really do! Ever since I sold my 6505 for $250 haha. Now I'm playing some garb 15watt crate.. Ugh.. Haha

Quote by 457undead
Ill buy it for $-200, if you are okay with that.


Hmm, pretty good. How about -$220 though? that way you get an extra $20
Quote by iRoseAgainst
You live in Scottsdale, you could probably raise the price a bit.

Idk man. People are effin' 8R00T4L on Craigslist haha
Quote by jamster92
About $2.50, I'll even throw in a pepsi.


Make it a Dr pepper?
Quote by megano28
You should post this in the appropriate sub forum, you'll get serious answers there


You're absolutely right and I considered that.. I guess took the quantity over quality route?
Quote by Hardlycore
Well if you can really use the money...


Not really use as in immediately but by the end of the month..
I'm selling one of my older guitars because I hardly play it slash would rather have the money at this point in time. I'm going to link my Craigslist ad just so it will be easier for you to check the details, I'm not trying to spam or anything. If I'm breaking a rule lemme know and I'll take it down. I originally had it posted for 200 without the case aand was offered 150 but didn't take it(thought I could get 175 for it). Now the best offer I've gotten is 110 with the case. I could really use the money right now. What do you guys think? Should I take it or wait for my asking price? Assuming that will even happen at this point.

Wow, I really can't thank you guys enough for all of the helpful posts. There is some truly great advice in here and it makes me feel a little better knowing that some people will go out of their way to help a stranger online. I know I really should try some of these things but it's easier said than done. That being said, I feel horrible for drunk posting/ranting and feel pretty lame tbh. However it is/was much easier to say it here than to someone irl. Even though I sorta have before but usually I'm pretty drunk as well as whoever I'm talking to. So it probably just looks like I got too drunk and had a bad time or something then avoid talking about it later.

Idk, I know I need to take small steps but there are just so many of them that I get overwhelmed just thinking about all the stuff that needs to be done. Which results in procrastination, which results in less time to get stuff done/closer to deadlines, which stresses me out more, and so on.

I'm in kind of an odd situation right now, since a lost my job in November. I moved in with my mom but that isn't the same as it used to be because she moved to Tucson to live with her boyfriend and she hasn't been able to find a job that pays more than half of what she used to make. So she's helping me out as much as possible and I know that me being here is causing problems because I was supposed to get my ged. At least that was the agreement for me staying with them and I need it anyway, so I thought why not? It turns out that they just revamped the whole test and now it's harder. So I haven't made much progress and I know they aren't happy about that.

I have to move out probably at the end of this month or the beginning of next due to her boyfriends kids that will be staying for part of the summer. Which means I'll have to move back in with my friend in Scottsdale and hope I'm able to find a job. That won't be easy though because I won't have completed the ged by then. So I'll have to get another fast food job most likely and I honestly think I'd rather die then do that. Oh, and I'm very insecure so I won't go out in public unless I'm wearing long sleeves because of some past "attention" self harm scars. I just don't think I could deal with that. I know I shouldn't care what people think but for me it's nearly impossible.

I know this all seems petty and stupid and it probably is. But I guess to me it's a big deal because I'm just weird like that. I really don't know what to do. Well, I guess I kinda do but I mean more of the dilemma of getting over my depression/facing my fears and not caring who think what. Or if I should just actually kill myself. I face this dilemma everyday. I know it's probably not normal to debate on whether or not I should kill myself everyday. It just feels like everything is too much and there's no way I can do it.

Idk. Idk why I'm even writing this, I guess I'm just ranting again. I meant to only write the first paragraph but got carried away with my thoughts. I apologize if this is annoying anybody.

Edit: wow I didn't realize how that I just wrote the equivalent of the entire Harry Potter series, I really did get carried away. Sorry for the wall of text, if anyone actually reads it, that is

Also, sorry for any spelling or grammar errors, I'm on my phone.

I agree on the alcohol. Whenever I drank alcohol I had total breakdowns and felt even worse the next day. That continued for a while. Try changing your diet as well? If you're eating carbs or lots of sugary food, stop that, and eat animals instead.

What mystical_1 is saying seems to make sense.


I was like that too. I told my doctor I was feeling depressed but I couldn't say anymore than that.


That was part of my latest self improvement things that I started in January. It was OK for a bit, I even gained about 15 lbs in the last 3-4 months. Then I realized I was still shit and that wasn't that great so now I'm binging again.
Quote by mystical_1
If you go to a hospital, they will see you whether you can pay or not. If you can't afford it, they have free bed funds, just let them know. Even if it cost a couple hundred bucks, its a small price to pay for happiness.

Now, onto your depression. Alcohol is a depressant and only makes it worse. You are probably not so bad when you are sober. Also, if you have some kind of chemical inbalance, booze won't fix that, either. It will make your problems worse. Try quiting it and see what happens. If it doesn't fix the problem, maybe you have really low dopamine or something is up with the pleasure sensors in your brain. All of this can be fixed with medication, very easily, and isn't a "psychiatric" issue. Its a medical issue. I'm not a doctor but that is exactly what one would tell you to do. Problem solved, its that easy. And the only "manning up" you will have to do is taking care of this issue before it gets worse.


Honestly, Idk if I could tell the truth. I've talked to doctors and such(normal check ups and physicals and also post failed stupid loser attempts that should have been better and successful) but for some reason I just deny everything and say I was just being dumb/irrational for a bit and feel embarrassed.

Edit: I thin think I owe about 3000$ because I didn't pay last time when they had to give me stitches. My roommate ruined that one and called the cops.
Quote by Philip_pepper
You sound a lot like me from 4 years ago. I understand exactly how you feel. I've been there man.

I don't know how else to say this, but realize that nobody knows what the fvck they are doing. Lots of people just...float through life, not knowing why or what for. I'd say only 4-5% of people actually got their shit semi-together.

Don't be so hard on yourself. You've got no need to be.


I felt like this as well. Horribly ashamed of it and I did everything I could to hide my feelings. And, also, I felt like if I told anyone, they'd just tell me to "get over it" and I'd be left stranded even more than before.


That's pretty much it. The very few times I've tries to talk about stuff it just results in a "well it could be worse" type of talk. Then I just give up, just like I do on everything else in life.
Quote by Banjocal
then see a psych and get the treatment and help you need that extends beyond your own current ability to do so


That, I'm afraid is impossible. I just don't have the money and I'm too much of a p*ssy to tell anyone when I'm not shit-faced. Even if I did, it won't do anything.
I know no one will. Honestly I don't really even know what exactly it is. I've tried various forms of self-improvement and other thing that I thought would make me happy but somehow I always end up hammered and suicidal.
My life is such a mess, I know I won't get a serious response, but I need to vent somewhere. This is probably the only community I frequent. I rreally don't know what I'm doing and each day hurts more than the last. I have one month until I need to move from my current Residence and I think I'm going to jump in front of a car on the nearest Highway I just just ccan't deal anymore. I know some people will miss me, but their pain of missing me probably won't equal the pain I feel on a daily basis. And if it does f*ck it, I'm tired of being the people pleaser. I want something that will help me for once. Something that will stop the infinite hate I feel for myself everyday. Something that can finally maybe make ME happy, orat least less miserable.

Why? Why me?

Why can't I be someone who matters? Someone who has meaning? Someone who is happy?

I've come to the conclusion that it's MY fault that I'm not happy. It's My fault that I push everyone away. It's MY fault that I'm afraid to love someone again.

I always WANT to blame someone else but when it comes down to it.. Nobody has anyone to blame but their selves.

Get over it right? I'm being such a little b*tch right? Especially for a dude. Well I don't give A f*ck anymore. I'm sick of putting other people first and the only way I see me being happy.. Is not being at all.
FYI I'm jealous of everyone that can have a "normal" life. I can't stop thinking about what I'm doing wrong every second that is seriously driving me insane. I haven't felt right since I was 14 and since then it's been varying degrees of "alright". 8 years of this is too much. I just can't anymore. I refuse to tell anyone irl about my "weakness" so they will have to somehow stumble across this.

Idk though I'll prolly p*ssy out again like I did the last 5 times and end up in the hospital feeling like a bigger piece of dump than I do now. What do I know? Nothing. Nothing and self consciousness and pain. F*ck me and three quarters. Idk. I just don't know, I really don't.
I like that I think I am worse than everyone at everything to the point of hating myself!


Wait... What..?

Just because he's the fastest runner doesn't mean he's the best runner. I prefer people who run slow because you can see the emotion in their faces as they pass by.


think I'm gonna have to sig that

Edit: I also hope none of my friends say stuff like that when I'm not around. I'd hate to finally meet them and they think I suck or something.

YOu don't want to get laid again?


No I do, I just don't think I can. 14 month dry spell
Well, in order for me to be a dad I'd have to get laid again. So no.


Quote by ali.guitarkid7

Are you always this stupid or is this just an exception you made?


Normally I'd be offended but I'm not sure you fully understand your insult. Just like you don't seem to understand what you're arguing against. You seem to be one of those people that are intimidated by people that actually know what they're doing but don't want to learn it yourself. So instead, you just hate on it for no reason and pretend to not need it. When in reality you're just lazy and want to justify it by pretending that it's useless or somehow "confines" your apparent musical greatness. If you don't want to learn more about music and have a deeper understanding of it, fine you can say that. It's also cool if you just like to go by what you hear or playing random stuff until you find something you like.

The difference is, I don't care about your methods but I'm not on here trying to belittle everything you do. You seem to hate theory like an ex girlfriend that you just can't get over, instead of indifference which would tell me you don't care. So I just think you're bitter I could be wrong and I don't care but yousure do put off that vibe.

Also why does it matter that you think other forms of art don't have theory? Who cares? Is this that form of art? No. Get over yourself dude, as far as I'm concerned your just another nobody on the Internet. Justanother guy that wrongfully thinks theory is just a set of rules telling what you can and ccan't play. It may seem like it in the beginning but that's not the way it is. That's further evidence that you have little to no knowledge on the subject. Anything you have written or will write can be thought of theoretically because it doesn't tell you what to write, it examines what's already been written.

Button down collar shirts. I wear one pretty much every day.


I thought I was the only one!
Quote by macashmack
After thinking for a second, I think I miswrote. The no theory type is the second most annoying.

The number one most annoying I will never jam with you you shouldn't even be playing music or trying to join a band type of person is the guitarist who doesn't know any chords. YOU ARE PLAYING A POLYPHONIC INSTRUMENT NUMB NUTS THE GUITAR IS MEANT TO PLAY CHORDS. I swear once I was jamming with a few kids from my school, and a kid didn't even know what the **** a major chord was. You shouldn't even be playing with other people if your level is that low, spend some time learning your instrument first.


Or when they say they've been playing for like 1-3 years and they "don't" know chord names and insist on calling each one "oh you mean THIS one?"
Quote by macashmack
I don't agree with that, although they are the very last type of person I would ever want to jam with or make music with.


Yeah, that's closer to what I meant. Got a little carried away there.
I'm on the theory side and will and ali are pretty much the most annoying type of people ever. I'm convinced at this point that they are trolling, because I can't imagine anyone could be so wrong so often. Then again it's easy to be wrong about something you know nothing about. It would be funny to see them try this in musician talk and get torn up. I guess they have no reason to go there though
Thank you for posting!!! I love those games!

Phones don't last long anymore period.

As conspiracy-nut as this sounds I wouldn't be surprised if with every software update new code is implemented to slow programs down and induce errors so you're forced to buy a new one (which they offer you a discount for if you buy the same model and provider).

Same with PCs: anything made by HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc. that's made with proprietary parts, special proprietary versions of Windows, and only made to last a certain period of time before you are forced to buy a new one.


Yes, even if you clean the disk from junk frequently. My custom-build was the only PC I've ever owned (and still own) where running routine cleans/scans/defrags/etc. made a noticable difference in performance.


I have a galaxy s2 that runs fine it does leave a bit to be desired in the performance department but I think it runs better than ever on the current and newest software. Not to mention it's like a 3 year old phone, which is ancient in terms of Android phones
Yeah, maybe a bit, but I'm not going to act like I'm not.
Just get a 32gb nexus 4

Now that the five is out you can get a used one very cheap. Plus it has great specs for the price and will get fast OS updates until at least later this year.
Quote by Nickpocalypse
6 or 8GB of memory will get you absolutely nowhere, especially if you want photos, apps AND music

16GB would be a minimum, 32 recommended. Expandable storage would be best, like the Notes mentioned above.


Yeah, I'm pretty sure you can't save apps to an SD card either.
Quote by angusfan16
Fo real. And GL finding a phone that'll last without charging for a couple days.


Galaxy note 2. The 3 is great as well but I think the 2 might have better battery life. Pretty much any phablet will work though, if you can handle the screen size.

Edit: Also if the built-in eq isn't good enough check out power amp. If you like using tunes on your phoneto transcribe songs check out asc an android exclusive app for slowing songs down. They previously had a pro version where you could change the pitch as wwell but Idk where that went. You can also export the files you slow down /speed up.
I remember I got an email once with an offer to "monetize" my videos. It was something ridiculous like 0.01 or 0.001 cents per view. Idk if they pay some people more or not though.

You're a great comeback! Oh!! Burn !!

Quote by The_Casinator
I'm great at avoiding violence. If you don't go out looking for it it's surprisingly easy to avoid.



Not always. I was at a party with my friends and this random guy came up to me and just started being kind of a dick. Increasingly so through out the night, I didn't want to start a fight so I just kinda blew him off and tried to talk to other people. He would show up a bit later and make his way into the conversation and try to be a bit of a here to me. I kept telling myself that he's just drunk and so on.

Finally as we're about to leave he straight up called me a pushy and I just told him that I wasn't and **** him. At wwhich point I start to turn away but before I did I saw him get ready to punch me out of the corner of my eye. So I ducked back and he missed for the most part then I swung on him and he fell down so I started to kick him a bit. I got pulled off but someone let him get up and he tried to tackle me but couldn't and ripped my favorite shirt instead. So after hitting him a few more times we finally got separated for good and my friends and I left.

Also, the best part in my opinion was that my friend who's place we were at shit in his shoes that night
