@ Nolan

Yes, except I think I saw the original drawing/painting... whatever the thing was.

There are 10 kinds of people in this world -

( Insert 16 remarks about to what extent people know hex here )

Other skills.

Yes, I have.
But wouldn't that be telling??

I'm the Bard.....writer and story teller.
I'm no Arnold...but I lift weights and do isometrics.
I'm no Gene Kelly...but I love to dance.
I'm the Walmart shopper....it seems I shop there a lot.

I used to water ski, roller skate, and hike a lot.
And a way,way long time ago too.

I'm becoming deeply entrenched and involved into 3d graphics and animations currently.

DiablosDevil I can't remember if this is the brilliant site which explains it perfectly, or the terrible site I looked it which should never be used.

That would be the good one, since I managed to make one only following the steps

Here is a poor quality, photobucket flash video (sorry) of me fooling around on the piana'. The first note screwed up the speakers so watch out for that, plus the camera shakes a lot. Ignore the weird noises that come out of my mouth too.


I'm still learning the song, by the way. Be gentle. Ten points if you can name the tune. Twenty if you can name the tune and the artist!

whewwwwwww!!!! cool

I started to dance to this. Ahhhhhhh true.
A little tippity tappity too.

Some other songs you might want to learn
and key in on your piano.

Point of No Return by Nu Shooz.
Secret Message by Nu Shooz

One of these Nights by the Eagles.
And I tell ya I do a great Laurel and Hardy tap dance
alternating with a Cherokee Indian rain dance. And you should see my flying eagle spins.

Walking in Rhythum by the Blackbyrds. One of my favorite
songs of the late seventies.

Breakout by Swing Out Sister.
I play and dance to this song all the time.

Promises, Promises by Naked Eyes.
I got it down with this cool techno routine.
Works even better with my work boots on..cause I can slip
and slide on the floor. Rather than just wear my usual black
velcro sneakers.

And also Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves.
And oh yeah, Puttin on the Ritz and sung by Taco and Give Me an Angel version by Blackfoot too.

cheers and cool blanko

I managed to get my hands on a microphone I recorded something small, I just made it up. Probably not very interesting. However if you have any requests I'll try to play them for you


|edit| I recorded two guitars and mixed them together, so you don't think I'm Vishnu or something |edit|

Yeay for guitar skills!
Now do the theme tune from Plok

''Load, Next List!''
Wed, 16 May 2007, 16:16
Too bad I don't know what Plok is, could it be this?
Wed, 16 May 2007, 16:22
I found it, now I'll have to learn it
Wed, 16 May 2007, 16:22

Technically, yes, but that's the worst version of it I've ever heard!

Much better!!

@garand: I did those for 3 years (4th through 6th grade). I never did much of anything for my team because I was the youngest (and my brother was also on it).

I don't have any real 'hobbies' outside of programming (gave up piano in the 4th grade, regretted it ever since), but I play tennis and basketball and I swim.

irondirgible ...but I play tennis and basketball and I swim.

I also play tennis and baskteball =)

Sorry Jay. My guitar has a floating bridge, meaning that when I try to tune it in open g, which the Plok song requires, it won't sound right.

|edit| It's actually not required, but if I try to play it in standard tuning it'll be harder and take a lot of time to figure out how to play it. |edit|

But... I decided to try it anyway, so all hope is not lost
Thu, 17 May 2007, 17:08
By the way, I found a high quality version of that Plok song, and now I can't stop listening to it, it's so catchy!
Thu, 17 May 2007, 17:12
From the SNES game "Plok", created by the Pickford Brothers.. (who also created Sticky Balls in Blitz3D, which then went on to become the only game worth buying a Gizmondo for!)

*claps hands at the complexity*

I'm just about good enough to do the one fingered version!

Thank you, thank you!
Thu, 31 May 2007, 05:28
