    I just figured I'd show you guys an early WIP of something I am working on. Remember The Nova Bob-omb Jazz Orchestra? This is the name I have given to my sample library combo that I use for jazz works (The Corneria Sound Symphony Orchestra is my symphonic orchestral setup). I'm doing a couple of Big-Band jazz arrangements of some music from the SNES Star Fox game. Here is the first one I am doing, which is the Slot Machine (Out of This Dimension Boss): http://dzcomposer.com/betamusic/slotswip001.mp3 WIP 2: http://dzcomposer.com/betamusic/slotswip002.mp3 Note: This is a very early WIP. I still have to finish hashing-out the parts, then I have to clean everything up. I am also planning on doing Fortuna kind of in the style of a score to a 1940s-era crime drama. The instrumentation for this is a little different than in the above picture. I based the instruentation off of the Stan Kenton Orchestra: 5 Trumpets 4 Trombones 5 Saxes/Woodwinds 4 Mellophones Guitar Bass Drums Piano Vibraphone

    So I decided to go back through some of my early posts. Posts from when I joined the site. Oh dear God. From vacuous thoughts to indiscriminate immaturity, I was a different person four years ago. A significantly different person. Recently I realized, or at least, re-realized, that this site, more than any other, has shaped me as a human being. I've learned to interact and converse with others without being a complete vacant dumbass. I've learned how to write cohesively and when to hold my tongue. I've learned how to be funny and how to enjoy humor from others, and while I'm still learning, I've come a long way. I realize that this was a sort of socialization that I can't get elsewhere. Usually children are socialized entirely by their peers at school or their family, leading to a more closed-minded individual. However here, I get a variety of cultures and ideas that has helped to round me off as a more tolerant individual. SFO is a community of fresh minds and various age groups, which has led me to mature in a way that is unique from the standards of a cookie cutter society. SFO has helped me to come out of my shell and find who I am. My interactions continued once I got on Steam, and while that alienates me from some of you Skype users, that's shaped me as well. Being able to enjoy a game night of intelligent people that just love to enjoy video games is great. You're all distinct individuals that I can recognize by voice. Some of you have become extremely close friends to me, people that I can trust and confide in. And it's weird to see just how far I am from that awkward mid-teenage individual that I was when I joined. My learning experience will continue as I approach 3000 posts. 3000 moments that will have accumulated to shape my being. I was there when the site changed faces, I'll be here for years to come. This site isn't just about video games. It's about coming of age and becoming a great person. It's an escape from a sometimes rough reality. TL;DR, I've learned a lot from you guys and I hope to continue to become a more culturally and emotionally literate human being. SFO is a home for me. You guys are fantastic <3 sorry for beating it around the bush a little bit. It's difficult to get this general feeling of gratitude put into words.

    DZ, regardless if you read this now or whenever someone pings you on Steam or whatever, you have to do something. The site has pretty much gone from "quiet" to "rogue" since you have been gone on hiatus. You may be paying the bills to keep this place hosted, but don't expect the community to simple stay around without any relevant updates. Without direct intend, while you are gone, the site is literally dying. Therefore, indirectly, you are killing the site you worked so hard to maintain over the past 10 years. This is your work. Sure, some folks have helped you build this place, but you are the main pillar. It's been 2 months since you last logged, again, leaving personal crisis aside, the more time you spend away from the site, the higher is the chance that you will end up finding nothing when you return. . Your current 2 pseudo Admins definitely are not ones to count on. Redeemer pretty much left and I wouldn't take the torch as I am only around due to nostalgia and to ban-hammer imbeciles at this point, I tried to get involved again, but I really don't give a shit about SF and I can't identify myself with this generation of SFOers (no offense). If you are going to remain on hiatus, take my advise and find someone else, mature and experienced ,who shares your passion for SF/Nintendo to keep this place running. Appoint that person as your main backup and make either Vydrach or OneUnder Mod leads . At least by doing so you are preventing further damage and you would keep the site going on. If you simply decide you don't care/don't have time for this, passing the torch should be easy and straightforward.

    I could bludgeon both of them equally with a tube sock filled with rusty nails and butter. I would take a large dosage of PCP, remove all articles of clothing, fill my car up with Red Bull and the emotional turmoil of not knowing what to order in the waiting line of Arby's, and proceed to carry out Buddha's duty in removing those two from the plain of reality we come to know as here. Do you know the amount of damage that can be done by a mostly naked man traveling 43 kph wielding a tube sock of pain? I'm sure I would be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for my acts for humanity. You will never see a more ill-prepared urban ninja than the one who may clean the slate of those two heathens. At the day of reckoning, children everywhere will cry tears of joy in unison. The true meaning of Martin Luther King's "I had a Dream" speech is about the murder and looting of Tricky and Saladfingers Streptococcal McRipoff. There isn't enough stress I can put on my tounge to convey the issue that is those two.

    So, the other day, this happened. A vicious egg attack Somehow, everyone's favourite embarrassment to Canada managed to do $20k in damage to his neighbour's house, solely using the power of eggs. Police then raided his mansion, looking for evidence of eggs. I am not kidding: That might seem a little eggcessive, hey, but he did do a lot of damag-- Holy fuck. I'll let this other headline sum up what happened next: The drugs were apparently being used by a friend of Bieber's, rapper 'Lil Za, who in the aforementioned article has denied using the drugs, which were stated to be laying out in the open in Bieber's home. Sounds kinda weird and suspicious, right? Well, lots of people thought so, too, including the dude who plays Sam "the tall one" Winchester on Supernatural: Haha, nice one Jared! And then this happened. So let me recap this for you. Justin Bieber somehow does $20k to his neighbour's house using only eggs. The police then raid his house looking for evidence of eggs and find drugs. Police arrest random dude, accusations fly in that Bieber is using him as a fall guy, and now Beliebers are at war with the Supernatural fandom. ...I call it The Aristocrats!

    So I might as well dispel any sense of anonymity as it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make to share with you guys some of the movie projects I've been working on in the past year or so. Some of you may or may not know, but I'm a screenwriter who graduated from the VFS in 2011 and now work on various projects (some still tied with the school). Most of my initial biggest productions were through the school's "Compendium" program, which were high-budget and directed by established filmmakers. The short films I'll be posting trailers for were all shot within 12 hours on a budget of $1500 or less. Many of them have been entered in film festivals across the world, including festivals in Romania, Japan, the UK, and France. First off is my first-ever short film, The Little Mermaid, a dark adaptation of the fairy tale where the titular mermaid is a sideshow freak. Initially winning the Golden Skull at the Screamfest LA festival back in 2011, held at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in LA, it went on to win the Canadian Golden Sheaf and a Leo Award for makeup. We have just begun production on the Little Mermaid feature film and digital series, which you can keep updated on by liking our Facebook page. Here is the short itself (also available on FearNet): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFrDbdAknws These next two are projects of a similar vein where the prompt was "Zombies in Oz". That's what it's about. The first one, No Place Like Home, is currently making the rounds in Japanese film festivals, including the Yubari International Fantastic Film Festival. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXJMltObOTw&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vABa9Re6tc&feature=player_embedded The next three are not available to the public yet, but their trailers are available for a sneak preview of what's to come. Presenting the Jabberwock, Tumbling After, and Blood Runs Cold: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVPJkMNikLE&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiwUUC-OMcA&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiMwXHgkLhE&feature=player_embedded I'll be heading to Nevada next month for Tumbling After's film festival debut. And finally, one more short, a comical reprieve from the rather dark shorts that I've posted previously, one of my final projects from my time at film school. "Stress": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SesN83g9zB0&feature=player_embedded Hope you guys enjoy them.

    A little self-deprecating humor from an old Star Fox fan. Yes, that's Krystal's thigh tattoo on the Frisbee. It represents SFAd. Long story short, SFAd fans were not the type of fan we oldies were used to. Everyone lost their shit and the fandom collapsed. Many SF communities died to bring us this comic. FYI, starfox-online.com was the predecessor to starfox-online.net. SF-O.com was really a different site with different content. While many of the community migrated to SF-O.net and seeded its growth, most eventually moved-on. Thus, SF-O.com really was an ancestor more than it was the beginnings of SF-O.net.

    While I do think this topic is necessary I think a bit more can be done. Perhaps a PM to the offending party? "Hello person, your avatar/sig is flashy and distracting, and as a moderator/administrator I am asking you to take it down." It would be a bit more effective than having every single person coming in here and asking "Is mine too bad?"

    Refer to this image: At least, one would hope. Worst case scenario North Korea does have nuclear technology and deploys it in a major area (e.g. Seoul). Otherwise they barely have a chance. I think it's just them showing off and trying to get attention akin to a child throwing a temper tantrum. And that's all Kim-Jong-Un is, a child. Granted, a child with the fourth largest standing army in the world, but a child nonetheless. Still, nuclear capabilities are nothing to joke about. If they do have a device or devices they are significantly more dangerous. I'm just concerned about South Korea, since they essentially pose no threat to anyone that isn't directly adjacent to them. And China has expressed their dissaproval. If China were to step in we'd have a problem, but seeing as that's not very likely, I'd like to assume we're safe.

    I can certainly understand where you're coming from, Milky, and I commend your ability to voice your opinion regardless of others possibly taking offense. The thing is, I don't think this forum necessitates a hyper-oppressive regime in which a single step out of line is met with four-thousand years of back-breaking labor untangling ethernet cords in a server host headquarters, or something of the sort. The arguments that do crop up and eventually end up in a rather large blow-up are dealt with and are, for the most part, rare. I do admit, however, that we, as a moderation team, could definitely improve on policing the Counter Point and being active in general. You undoubtedly have a valid point there, and I won't beat around the bush with it. --- From now on, we begin anew; CRIME: BRINGING GRIEVANCES AGAINST THE STAFF SENTENCE: DEATH

    So it has come to my attention that bronies and furries inhabit our fine forum. It may surprise you, but I recently discovered that there's actually an entire topic for bronies to lounge about in. Scary. And don't even get me started on the furries. Seriously, this is a Star Fox forum, not a furry forum. Jeez. Get out, you weirdos. Anyone who wants them banned should sign here. We already have four people who agree that something must be done. We can make a change, people. WE CAN DO IT.

    Okay I can't take it anymore. Someone open up a donation link and prepare to receive my money. I need to remember why I loved you asshats in the first place, and I need to do it through the glorious power of crockets. Scott? DZ? either of you feel like maintaining one again? If so, I'll love you forever. In all seriousness, now may be a good time to re-vitalize the server: with the suspected increase in community population with the upcomming release, roping some of the fresh blood into the TF2 matches may be a way to bring back the population we lost gradually over the literal decade of inactivity. If I recall correctly, Cost was a major factor to the server's inability to stay alive, as well as population numbers. I dunno about the others that used to help with the costs but I'm more capable now more than before to donate and am willing to again (Hooray for paid internshiiiiiiiiiiiiips~) So lets have it: is this the starry-eyed delusion of some loser who misses his friends, or is a new TF2 server actually achievable?

If that's your thing and you can get others to write it, more power to you, but I just want... nay, need to know why. At what point and reason did that thought formulate? Of all the things that could be made into a Star Fox fanfiction, why that?

    The train was late. This was a fairly normal occurrence for the Los Angeles Metro at 5pm on a Thursday. Someone down the line probably picked a fight that held up one of the trains, or someone held the door open and knocked the whole schedule off kilter, or maybe something just simply broke down. Whatever it was, it was hardly out of the ordinary for the train to be late. But the train was late on not just any day. This was one of the greater LA area's rare and spectacularly disruptive rainy, blustery days, And on a wide open platform only a scant few miles from the ocean and completely exposed to the wet and blasting wind was probably the single worst place to be. Commuters huddled behind umbrellas, only for the wind to change direction and blow a shower into their backs; tourists hid behind whatever was handy and surely wondered where the hell that made-for-TV southern California weather had gone; the occasional grimy homeless person waddled through the wind unfazed by anything so trivial as the weather. My hand-rolled cigarettes grown from a non-profit anti-capitalist suburban experiment in communal living and harmonious relationships with arthropods couldn't stay lit in the cold, and that gave me a bit of a craving for the sweet taste of a lungful of freedom. My chai latte was already all gone, and as for the banh mi in my sustainable locally sourced Greenpeace knapsack, well, it would have to wait. There was no eating on the station platform, and the smell alone could kill a small horse, so surely it would attract the attention of a cop or two. All of that left me twitchy, hungry, cold, wet, and tired, which is no way to be. No way at all. So it was a bit of a surprise, in my distracted state, with my chakras misaligned and my mind running on fumes, when I encountered...her. The first thing I noticed, really, was the smell. At first I thought it was my incense, but I hadn't lit my burner, and I looked around for the source of the unmistakable smell of wet dog. And I found it, of course. To this day it still surprises me that no one seemed to even notice the strange human-ish creature with a huge puffy blue tail and a face that looked like a cross between a cat and a fox. Or the blue fur all over her body, and the tattered bikini loincloth sort of thing that clothed quite little of her. The helpless look in her eyes drew her to me, like a moth to a flame. Here was a woman--was it a woman?--who needed someone. Who needed me. "Hi," I said. She blinked once and vomited, and I knew it was destiny. -- and that was my first encounter with krystal

RP Name/Title- Our Modern SF-O Family Style- (Chat or forum?) - Fourm/chat Theme- Comedy Drama on ABC Setting- In the city of Internet, SF-O Township Description- Users are in families living out their lives in Internet. Having jobs and spending time with our slaves families. It will be filled with suspence, thrills, drama, action, Sci-Fi, etc. Goal- Survival from the Whales Player count- ∞ Current status as of now is: Icy and Lonewolf with their son. Ajc is the creepy uncle and I'm the cool uncle. Hidi is most likely the neighbor and DZ is down the street on the left.

    Oh ho. Oh ho ho ho. Things that piss me off? Does "the rest of the world" count? But to be more precise: 1. Judgmental people. I experienced this lately while losing weight, people thought I was crazy because I actually looked at calorie counts. Didn't lose 64lbs by not looking, and they're still fat. So. 2. Superficial friendships. While mentioning my weight loss, I remembered a couple of people I was once close to. We used to always go for lunch, go for walks, and we had all planned to actually get fit and healthy for summer. But I was the only one who actually did it, and I guess the other two didn't like that so much. They both deleted their accounts on the fitness site we joined together. 3. People that try to impress others constantly. It's so infuriating because it's usually coupled with a bad sense of humour, arrogance, sexism and an undying belief that everyone is clinging to every word they speak. 4. Celebrity news/gossip. 5. People that don't take "no" for an answer. 6. People that think they deliver justice by questioning things that aren't their business or personal to someone else. I see this a lot on facebook as well, one of my friends is obsessed with politics and shares every goddamn article on Scotland, ever. 7. When I roll over in bed unevenly and the nerves in my legs decide to try and kill me. 8. When people don't listen to me after they specifically ask for my help/explanation.

    Personal opinions should take a lesser part on topics inside the counter point . The "I personally think" should be followed with good facts provided by either a good information source or a good, valid point. You are welcome to let us know what you believe, but don't use it as a pivot statement for your arguments. First of all, the term family doesn't only apply for "man, woman, and a bunch of kids", there's no turning back on that. Yes, that's the supposed "most common type of family", but it's not the only type, get your facts straight. Back on topic, seeing as how history revolves around controversial events, I believe "gay marriage" will end up being something accepted by most countries one day. Homosexuality is just a natural thing, it's not something hellish that eats souls or throws people in madness. Even in the animal kingdom, homosexuality is presented, so there's no "this goes against god's will!" for religious folks or "lol, this is not normal" for non-religious folks. Heterosexual couples can adopt kids and still be called a "nuclear family" even without the blood bonds, I see no problem with two men/women doing the same. I see our education system (globally) to be partially blamed for all this supposed "hate". Since elementary school, we were all taught that a family begins with a man and a woman, and that idea sticks altogether, so I feel it goes like "if school teaches me that a family starts with a man and woman, and I belong to a happy family formed by a daddy and a mommy, therefore, anything different is wrong". We also have religion to be blamed for this hate, but I really don't need to dwell on that because it's pretty clear as it is. And seriously, heterosexual marriages are not perfect either, people cheating on each other, man beats wife, woman beats husband, raping, etc. And so it happens on homosexual couples, there's no difference at all, so there's no point on going "gay pride" either. If I were to choose were to put a kid into adoption, I'd rather choose a loving gay marriage than a dysfunctional man-woman marriage,as well as I'd rather choose a loving man-woman marriage than a dysfunctional gay marriage. And I can see someone asking "what if you are faced with a loving gay couple and a loving heterosexual couple, who are you going to choose?", then I suppose it should fall into the standard adoption procedures. There's also a whole other debate that could come out from this "a kid needs a father as example and a mother as example, so how would a gay marriage fit?" To tell the truth, kids being raised by a single dad, or a single mother have come up to be fine lads, so I don't see this as an excuse. Another excuse I have heard is "Gay couples will enforce homosexual behaviors on their kids", it's the same thing as a heterosexual dad forcing his son to like women when the kid is clearly gay. Assuming they accept their adoptive child's sexual preferences, then they are fine. Let's not forget that the heterosexual, bisexual and homosexual trends are genetic things, not things you openly choose. Personally, I don't see how this could affect anyone in a negative way, it just feels kinda "racist". From my point of view, there aren't enough good reasons to ban gay marriage, the economy won't get worse, we will still have wars and teenagers will still have random sex. All I see is a bunch of conservative people going "GOD HATES FAGS" or people that really don't want to see that gay couples are human beings as well, they have feelings too.

    Hey Sabre I see you graduated with a master's degree from the Art Institute of Bullshittery Your FA gallery is a real Grade-A portfolio Are you suggesting that perspective and anatomy does not exist in claymation (which I have worked in) or South Park? Then you are an inconceivable idiot. There is a big difference between "everything is realism" and "using the base concepts of perspective, anatomy and colour theory to develop your style into an aesthetically pleasing medium". If you knew anything about these concepts then you'd be able to offer help without saying something as gigantically idiotic as "you don't need perspective in animation", but then again you've already proven on numerous occassion that perspective is not your strong suit. Sorry for the derail, AC. But for a tip, there are some very good tutorials on deviantArt regarding colour theory, anatomy, style, etc. Plug 'em into the search there and you'll get a lot of really helpful information to help you improve your art! There are a lot of professionals on the site (surprisingly) and it's awfully considerate of them to offer their help in that form. There's only so much art you can learn by having it TOLD to you, and part of it is just practicing. It is just very helpful to know movement when you get into animation; the way humans, animals, and the like function kinetically. While these may be exaggerated for the sake of cartooning, they all have their basis in the reality of motion, so observing movement around you in real life is vital.
