    Nah, but forget leaches.

    Physical contact with slimy frogs.

    Just for the record, sometimes there's such as thing as too much chlorine in swimming pools . . . that's how I actually lost much of my body hair once years ago.

    Oh sure, it's a matter of maintaining the right pH level.
    Hotel pools tend to. Public swimming pools, that's harder.
    Especially on the hottest day of the year and a hundred people jump in to cool off. For the maintenance guy, it's quite a job.

    Dinosaurs are a rather popular species, but is it just me, or did dinosaurs get a sudden popularity surge with kids in the early 1990s, with Dinosaurs, Barney, and Jurassic Park, among other things that might have factored in a dinosaur popularity renaissance? I'd say that The Land Before Time might have helped boost a dinosaur popularity, but I'd be willing to say that the popularity of dinosaurs is more likely to have spawned the many sequels. After all, there was about a six-year gap between the first and second, I vaguely knew about LBT until around the time the first sequel came out (I didn't really know what it was called until 1994, and when I first heard about the show Dinosaurs, I thought they were talking about LBT, I guess I might have thought that was a series (back then) instead of if not in addition to a movie).

    Though I'd say Disney's DulloDinosaur may have put an end to that craze, and watching the film it's easy to see why. :p

    @D'Snowth, another question on all things M*A*S*H-

    Ever notice how good everybody's eyesight must be in the episode with Mr. Shin? (the ever-versatile Keye Luke)

    How did they manage to engrave
    "Over hill, over dale, our love will (n)ever fail" insjde a ring?
    The inscription must be tiny.
    Inside my wedding ring is just my initials, and they take up a lot of space.

    Personally, that episode isn't a favorite of mine, so I tend to skip it often.

    But I do like the little brick joke at the end of the episode where Hawkeye and B.J. discover the new vascular clamp had been engraved, "Over hill, over dale, Korean clamp will never fail." "That's where he put the 'N'!"

    Since I brought up (mistakenly) on the Am I the only One thread on silly cartoons I once thought of....

    Tell me. What are some silly thoughts you decided to draw out? Were they ever finished? Ever drawn out?

    Towards the end, it got harder for the Hawkeye & BJ vs. Charles feud to keep going. Charles snoring, toothaches, etc. wore pretty thin.

    The episode with Hawkeye and BJ's body odor vs. Charles' French horn was pretty lame. Hawk and Beej get dunked with suds, and the horn gets run over by a jeep while Charles just...stands there!

    ...you swine!!!! Killer rebuttal.

    And oddly enough, that's actually considered one of the best episodes of the series.

    But then again, so is "Inga," and it's pretty much universally panned today considering how dated it is in terms of the feminism context.

    It's almost as if the '90s dinosaur craze began with Dinosaurs and then ended with the similarly-titled Dinosaur. And both being rather generic titles for works about dinosaurs.

    Is this supposed to be a parody of another show because the animation style looks sooooo familiar to me for some reason?

    I could swear I've seen that bird somewhere before too.

    What's the most annoying text alert on your phone?

    For me..... Easily my Facebook app.

    DING!

    DING!

    DING!

    DING!

    Maybe it's set to that because of how annoying Facebook in general really is. :search:

    I don’t really text, but probably when I get junk mail.

    Besides that **** program known as Pro Tools, what are some good programs that you can use to alter the pitch of the audio to something, but not change the speed? I'm ASSUMING audacity is one of them.
     
  16. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    The only really decent program I've found for doing that is a program called Reaper, or something like that . . . I discovered it while Googling, but come to find out it's not free. But it's really the only one I've found that gets the job done without any distortion whatsoever.

    Other programs can alter the pitch, but not without distorting the audio altogether: alterting pitch in Audacity causes the audio to sound very choppy and garbled; Adobe Audition doesn't necessarily have this problem, but the audio has a really tinny, metalic sound to it (like poorly exported AVI files) . . . so, it really boils down to which type of distortion you'd rather tolerate: choppy and garbled, or tinny and metalic.

    Huh. Well, thanks for the suggestion. I'll take it into consideration.

    On another note - I definitely find altering the pitch can alter the mood of the song.

    For instance - a song with a depressing vibe like Low Man's Lyric from Metallica can make it more cheery.

    I read somewhere - I forget where - that the main problem with these programs is that they really weren't written to handle altering the pitch of vocals so much as they were the music, which is partly why there's so much distortion.

    Right now, I'm debating on what to do about MORON LEAGUE 4, because certain voices are going to have to be repitched.

    Curious.... Had anyone ever just said **** it and put someone on ignore?

    I won't say who, but ugh.... Just someone who's gotten on my nerves before I decided to come back here and to discover they came over here as well.
