  1. This is really amazing. Been a member of the community for a long while, though I've become pretty inactive on the forums over the past couple of years. I remember being, like thirteen, and drooling over the chance to go on one of your tours! This year probably won't be the year for me, but I'm so excited that you're opening these back up a little more. I hope the experience is a good one, and I hope to tag along with one of your tours maybe in 2019.
  2. I can't remember the last time I posted anywhere on TPR. Just went into lurk-mode for... what, eight years? Maybe more... 'Sup?
  3. Lets try to get a chain going - I'd love to see TPR help bolster some more Google+ popularity. As soon as I get my invite *ahem* Kyle *ahem* I'll offer a few invites to other TPR members. We all invite five, and those five invite five...
  4. So, I got really bored and decided to make an AMV of one of my newest guilty pleasures. Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt - yes... that's the name of the show. Also, be warned, there are... y'know, panties... and stuff. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BByLGlxyjWg
  5. I'm starting a fun lil' project. Eventually it will be open for anyone in the forum to participate - eventually... Twisty! So much track, so tightly wound - what could this mean? A micro-city?
  6. After a long and awkward semi-hiatus from the TPR forums, my new years resolution is to get back into the threads!
  7. Amateur musical tinkerer here. I've played piano since I was eight and I've never had any piano or music theory lessons, though I'm happily going into AP Music Theory at my high school next year. I love music and playing piano as a form of meditation, though I don't think I'll ever go into it as a career. Lately I've also been tinkering around with "tracking" on the DS with a few dorky little cheapo-chiptunes. Might one day make the investment to by some good equipment... Anywho, here are a few of my bits of music. (If anyone would like to comment/critique I'd love it!) The DS bits: Err This one's kinda cool because all of the drums and background noises were recorded from the DS mic, that and it has a tempo change, which is a total pain to do on the DS. TRYANDTRY I consider this to be my first real DS song. Has a kinda jazzy chord background. The keyboard bits: Confines I submitted this for a little arts competition at my high school and won first place for original composition. Improv 1 Just did this tonight. I try to just improvise and play on the piano like this for at least thirty minutes every day. The piano bits: Progress on Piano A rough draft that I really need to get back to and start refining. A friend wanted me to write something for his short story, so I pounded something out and uploaded it for him. Largely improvisation.
  8. ^ Noted, and working on another coaster as we speak. Also... would anyone mind checking out my slightly older RCT 3 coaster? Collider? **shameless bumb attempt**
  9. Whew, it's been a while since I finally fell back to good ol' TPR. Family drama, friend drama, and schoolwork pulled me away pretty abruptly, but I'm finally back baby! Since it's been such a long time, I've decided that I'm gonna come back into my usual groove slowly, starting off with the older games, and then I'll move back up to NL. Either way, I'm starting off with the misfit of all RCT 2 coasters. The groovy little side friction coaster never got as much respect as I think it deserved, so here's my first track in a good long while: Cedar Dipper. Comments greatly appreciated! An overview of the coaster with scenery and everything. The station building and queue building are connected this time around. The track itself has a canopy structure at the top of the lift hill, and two tunnels. One hiding a pretty speedy double down, and the other hiding a "surprise" dip towards the end of the track. The whole layout without scenery. The ride is full of double downs, and has a pretty dense structure. Cedar Dipper.TD6 The Track
  10. Geez, it's been almost one and a half years since I posted here, and about a full year since I even looked around at this sight, and it's been a dark time... Anywho, I really miss the quirky nature of the forums, so I figured I might as well come back here with a bang. So, without much more ado, here is Collider, an extended steel rollercoaster that can satisfy anyone's need for a good thrill ride. Though the fun part is that this entire project was finished within 4 days, a new record! Comments of any sort are GREATLY appreciated. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_s0OdCDxgo The final helix before the trim and brake run. Going up to the highest vertical point on the track. Nice artistic shot of the diving loop thingy, Launched lift hills are, in my opinion, AWESOMESAUCE! Our first happy group of people to leave the station. I got a little carried away and did some stupid amount of detail scenery inside the queue. Sadly, I can't get the friggin' camera to take a good shot of it! Gah! Here's an overview of the station front.
  11. Hah! This is a fun one from last year at a ballroom competition. I had just danced for about 30 minutes straight, and then I had to change into my third costume... So. Effing. Tired. Incidentally this is the face I get after riding Kingda-Ka. Pure stoned bliss.
  12. ^^ Wow... that's really tragic, but I can sympathize. My friend died of cancer a few months ago, as long as you have good friends I'm sure you can cope. On a lighter note... this is my first post on TPR in like... a year,
  13. Ok, so I've ordered my R4 and MicroSD card for my DSLite. (If this sounds like gibberish, stop reading and go to another topic) I quickly realized that I also needed a few more things... namely: The EZFlash 3in1 expansion Hori Screen Protectors Thumb/Finger stylus (set) Hopefully there are a few nerds out there who know a website where I can just order those three things all at once. In my current situation, I'd have to buy the Hori's and stylus set from GameYeeeah.com, and the EZFlash from another website. I really don't want to pay shipping costs (yeah I'm that cheap) and I've been looking for a website that has all of those things, for a reasonable price, and a guarantee on quality. If you can help, please do. If not, let this topic slowly disintegrate... it will eventually.
  14. Heh, I guess I should add a bit, and I've just found a code-of-conduct of sorts for the mass of people "coming out" to the public... mostly teens my age, because by the looks of it... we need help. You can either come out in one of two ways: A) Burst forth in a nuclear explosion of rainbows, tassels, brightly colored streamers and eurobeat rave music, or- B) Tell the people who ask, and the people who need to know... that's it. I've got a... friend (and I use the term very loosely... hate the little annoying bugger) in Provo, who decided to come out with method A, and had to run home and lock the door five minutes later after being chased by at least two mobs (exaggeration) . Of course the fact that he lives in ghettosville Utah (Not nearly as ghetto as any other state but still pretty frumpy), might contribute to his near mauling, It just proves that nobody likes it when you blow up at some random time in public, with rainbows and pink thongs bursting forth from your withering corpse. Pretty sure I'm going to regret posting this, but I really needed to be sarcastic with the U-Pass (state tests) lurking around.
  15. I'm laughing a bit at what I've read since my absence from this forum. Mostly about the drama... all about the drama. Anyway, I'll be the first to admit that I'm gay, and I'm not gonna hide the fact that when I came to terms with who I was, I wanted to flaunt it into everybody's face, I wanted to "come out" to everyone. But as of late I've been a lot more laid back about my sexuality. After all, I'm still young and honestly my sexuality has little, to no influence on my life yet. It's a little stupid to try and jump into boyfriend after boyfriend when you're in school. You're too young to know what real love is, and I know I am. It's just a bunch of hormones. With that in mind, I've made a resolve to stop flaunting my preferences. I don't tell anyone, unless they need, or want to know, or they just ask, and if the way I act gives it away, big friggin' deal. It's just me being me, not trying to draw attention on myself. Anywho, I just figured I'd say that. Though I would also admit that I'm probably a bit more shy about it because of where I live. Utah is very religion oriented. Not to the point of cult fundamentalists, but enough that some people frown upon being gay, and even more on 'dating' under 17. But is being keeping your own issues to yourself such a bad thing?
  16. 'Sup? Wii friend code for me is: 4929 9410 7954 7845
  17. Ok, this happened in Choir yesterday, and I just about crapped myself with laughter, Student 1: I hate Wicked (Lagoon), It sucked so bad that their gonna take it down. Student 2: When? Me: Yeah, Lagoon is going to listen to the complaints of a hormonal, jail bait teenager, and pay money, to tear down something, that they payed money for, and is making money for them... Student 2: So when are they going to take it down? Student 1: You're gay, Me: Yeah... what of it? They both walked away, but anyway student #1 and I have a very close relationship of him acting like an idiot, me proving him wrong, and him calling me gay... it's rather hilarious .

  19. I love the concept, as well as the track, but I shall not say more until I see the companion cube
  20. ^ I've been thinking about something like that, and while a NL style editor will be WAY to complex for the general audience, I think that the program should work less on a grid system, and more on a curve setting. For instance, rather than having 90 or 45 degree curves, just have certain radius' of curves to use, then adjust it to curve flat, like a turn, or vertically for a loop, or anything like that,
  21. Rawr, ok, nobody's stalking in my opinion. Anyway, heres something I found on the internet that relates to the whole "coming out gay" thing. I actually got to show this to one of my councilors, and he laughed his head off, and he actually has the paper mounted on his office window. Heterosexual Questionnaire 1. What do you think caused your heterosexuality? 2. When and how did you decide that you were heterosexual? 3. Is it possible that your heterosexuality is just a phase that you may grow out of in time? 4. If you have never slept with a person of the same sex, is it possible that all you need is a good gay lover? 5. Is it possible that your heterosexuality stems from a neurotic fear of others of the same sex? 6. Do your parents know that you are straight? When did you tell them? What about your friends and room-mates? 7. Why do you insist on flaunting your heterosexuality? Can't you just be who you are and keep it quiet? 8. Why do heterosexuals place so much emphasis on sex? 9. Why do heterosexuals feel so compelled to introduce others into their lifestyle through constant scenes of heterosexual sex in the media? 10. A disproportionate majority of child molesters are heterosexual. Do you consider it safe to expose children to heterosexual teachers? 11. Just what do men and women do in bed together? How can they truly know how to please each other, being so anatomically different? 12. Despite all the societal support for marriage, the divorce rate and the rates of family violence are spiralling. Why are heterosexuals so incapable of forming stable relationships? 13. Statistics show that lesbians have the lowest incidence of sexually transmitted disease. Is it really safe for a woman to maintain a heterosexual lifestyle and run such a high risk of disease and pregnancy? 14. How can you expect to become a whole person if you limit yourself to compulsive, exclusive heterosexuality? 15. Considering the menace of overpopulation, how can the human race survive if everyone is heterosexual? 16. Could you trust a heterosexual therapist to be objective? Don't you feel that she or he might be inclined to influence you in the direction of her or his own leanings? 17. There seems to be few happy heterosexuals. Techniques have been developed that might enable you to change if you really want to. Have you considered trying aversion therapy? 18. Would you want your child to be heterosexual, knowing the problems he or she is bound to face? (Written by Shane from QueerAttitude.net)
  22. The layout was well designed in my opinion, you just had the occasional pump, but who wouldn't. Also as you stated, some of your supports are a little WTF, but very nice work otherwise.
  23. Kudos! A fantasy coaster, that has imagination, and ACTUAL humor! Perhaps this is something Coastb2 could look at for reference Sorry, that was a bit cruel, but wow, nice work.
  24. Wow I'm hearing all of these success stories about coming out to your parents! I'm so nervous about coming out, and so far I have only been able to talk to a few members in my little group of friends a school. It's a slow trickle, but it is relieving(?) pressure. Though as I may have stated before, my family (who are very gay tolerant, as far as I have seen) lives in a very anti-gay area. And no, I don't mean the whole state of Utah, but just my area. There's bashing abound, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Gay, just to name a few. While I'm positive my family would be fine with my difference, I'm worried about all the rumors that would circulate should the news ever reach beyond my house, and the many sorts of types of vandalism that would come to my home and family if my secrets got out. I've already had a few issues when private conversations were "leaked" and one of them even led to a very defiant woman slapping me across the face while I was walking home from school. She said something like "You little faggot!" but I cant remember it that much. So I guess I'm asking, should I come out to my family, or am I just being paranoid?
