    I cringe about most of the stuff I've posted, especially some of the personal stuff I've shared. I was about 15, 16 at the time I really got involved with Dfans. I didn't know how to conduct myself well on the internet. To an extent, I still don't know, but I'm getting better at it.

    I don't know how people buying a large volume of a notably repetitive and unoriginal game is supposed to help the industry. Setting a shitty industry standard doesn't help anybody.

    Good luck with that though, man. Hope no real damage occurred.

    Ordered my tux for prom today.

    Then I beat Belial nightmare without dying once. Shit was so cash.

    I died so many times in Act III cause of those goddamn Heralds of Pestilence. They are probably the most overpowered monster in the game if you're a melee character, especially if a champion mob imbued with waller / jailer is around and manages to trap you.

    I probably died at least 10 times cause of those fuckers.

    1.) Music. I know that's a pretty cliche response, but music, for me, is a constant reminder of the great that mankind can do; something as pure as musical thought and the ability to convey emotion through sound and language is one of the reasons I'm glad to be a part of this world. I wake up to music and I'm usually plugged in almost all day. I just can't be without it.

    2.) Love. That's also another cliche response, but I'm always comforted by the fact that, at this present moment, there are many people that I can call "family;" brothers, sisters, friends, mothers, fathers. This kind of familial warmth is something I anticipate in the morning and it always keeps me going no matter how sad I may get on a given day.

    3.) The future. I am an optimist at heart and I always try to have a positive outlook on my life and who I may grow up to be, who's lives I can affect positively, and the family I hope the raise and be a part of when I'm older. I have hopes and ambitions and I know, in my heart, that I would give anything to accomplish them and looking forward to that, most of the time, makes me glad to be alive.

    Also, I always find that I can't begin the day unless I can get out of bed. Every day is precious and laying around in bed (unless you're sick, of course) is a waste of a potentially great day.

    Just solidified my prom date, guys.

    I'm pretty stoked. This will be the only school function I actually went to.

    I've just started learning guitar, does anyone have any tips or maybe a heads up for some beginner songs to start off on?

    I had originally written you a pretty lengthy response but my fucking browser backed out of my post.

    I'll boil it down to a few points:

    1) "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" by Green Day is the perfect beginner's song because it introduces you to many musical concepts and guitar techniques at the same time.

    2) Don't attempt the Tristram theme until you think you're ready. If you find yourself becoming frustrated with a song, put the guitar down and take a few breaths. One of the biggest mistakes a beginner makes is assuming that they can't play something and, therefore, can't play guitar. Taking into perspective the amount of time that it takes for a guitarist to actually become good, it's absolutely okay to make mistakes. Nobody's grading you, don't take it too hard on yourself if you can't get something right the first time. Guitar requires a lot of patience but, in my experience, the reward is incredibly gratifying.

    3) Don't be afraid of experimenting with chords and especially don't be afraid of chords themselves; chords will hurt. They'll hurt like hell. Suck it up, crybaby.

    4) Don't pay for lessons unless you feel you absolutely need them. I've done fine without them (I've been playing for about four years).

    5) Try writing songs every once in a while. That's another gift of music; aside from obtaining a skill, you're able to put that skill to use and making something special to you. Take advantage of your skill.

    It's pretty easy to skip over posts and just reply to what you want. If someone replies to my post and then 3 pages go by, I'll still quote them and reply back despite the amount of discussion that has lapsed.

    I think the reason why I don't necessarily like doing that is because I feel that, if they don't want to return to the discussion (because five pages have flown by), then replying is kind of pointless because they've probably already forgotten about it / don't care anymore. After enough time has elapsed, continuing the discussion is really arbitrary.

    And there's certainly nothing wrong with wanting to have a laugh in the most popular thread on the forums. That's the reason why the URT was made, as Succubus said.

    Edit: This is a really nice video.

    And sorry for the music; It's a crappy cover of Coldplay's "Fix You."

    Only certain artists should cover certain songs.
