I'm a natural born cyborg from a dystopian future. Recently regenerated into marcb0t 3.0, the Sullen Android. Life is rife with sorrow. The future is uncertain, even more, what has come to pass.

Sega Genesis YM2612 is my chip of choice. I do dabble with other chips and music, though.

Hi guys,

Thanks, b00daw, that's actually quite a compliment. I don't feel like as much of a nerd as I probably could be. I work pretty hard physically at a warehouse, and have to learn how to work with people who are far less amiable than even yourself! ;-)

Plus, I don't have a natural passion or knack for programming, and don't really care for linux. (That's more my little bro's thing).

I do have plenty of nerdy tastes such as a passion for 80's music, chiptunes, hardware accuracy for those, sci-fi fan, Dr. Who watcher, etc. I am also oblivious to many social nuances, so if any part of this post offends you, that's probably why.

Kfaraday, glad you like the palette. It was the first one I liked. I'm glad you think it's futuristic. I just like the bluish, soothing, bright look. Makes it easier for me to see than that horrid sunburnt default scheme.

Now the pink hearts seem a little girly for me, but you know, I don't really care. Just consider it extra HP for whoever reads my messages.

What happened to your other green lady picture? I kind of liked that one. Also, your music rocks! Just had to say that.

I use onion routing to access this website sometimes because it's blocked in certain locations I go to. I travel around, but only within 2 towns in the United States.

It looks like I'm still in Switzerland today. Time to open up a new bank account! :-P

Check your Soundcloud feedback, by the way.

Everyone, I will be on a musical haitus for awhile while I deal with other things in my life. Too much has been going on for me to focus on "fun stuff". Could be months or longer. I will be unavailable for direct communication like e-mail, chat, collaboration, yadayada.

I will pop in from time to time and respond to messages like these... when there is time, and I'll be listening in when I can.

Take care everyone!

Edit: There, I should be shown as in the USA for the rest of the weekend. Onion routing uses proxy servers from overseas sometimes (my theory at least). So Battle of the Bits thinks I'm across the world. I have such a bad habit of tweaking out systems. :-D I was in France for a little bit today. Aurevoir mes amis!

i also saw some internet friends irl! it was a cool day, we even have a few vids (this
is one of them (im playing the keyboard!))
i did an english proficiency test and got a good score, i can probably study abroad if i want (i'll try next year, maybe)(i'll probably pick sweden to study at though)
also im letting my beard grow to see how it looks but i dont this one's rly relevant
i dont think there's much more than that, but if i remember i'll just edit this comment

Ola Tails,
Como está o meu pequeno amigo desalinhado?
Gee, I hope I'm saying that right. It's not my intent to worry anyone. My life is complicated, shall we say.
I've been working two jobs and lots of overtime. Lately I've been trying to find a better paying job aimed more toward customer service like retail sales for example.
Funny video. Looks like you guys were having a blast. What's "no-shirt dude" playing? It looks like an organ powered by mouth, kind of like a relative to the accordion... sounds like one at least.

I'll tell you one thing, your English is much more understandable than some Americans who post online. Not perfect, but I can read ya just fine. Sweden sounds a bit cold, so definitely grow your fur out if you go there. Brrrrr! It is getting really cold where I'm at too.

Here's a scary scruffy face: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2C16041iMhgd3drRFRTMXo2R3c/edit?usp=docslist_api

I don't let it grow longer than that before shaving. 3 days growth. Mostly work in a warehouse, so no one really cares.

Well, I would someday like to try Skype again. Let me know a good time frame for you and I'll see if I can make that work sometime.

Much love to you, woofleila, and everyone else on the boards... even b00daw! :-P


Edit: Hey, how's college life treatin ya these days?

It is, except I'm not entirely sure what you meant by "desalinhado", it probably refers to my beard though
The instrument is called melodica, and it's mine! It is like a 2,5 octave keyboard powered by mouth, and it does sound like accordion, kinda :P
Haha thanks :D my worries are about my speaking though, it's not bad, it's understandable but sometimes I get uhh kinda lost or confused (like I don't remember a word or don't know how to say it properly or something), but it's usually alright
I actually already worked as a tourist attendant here in my city (which is a touristic city - Ilhabela), and I've had my english praised a few times, hehe :P
Hey, you look a little bit like malmen, I think :P at least judging from this
pic of his (I don't think he minds me linking it here haha)
I was letting my beard grow as a "test", I had never let it grow a lot for a long while and I think I look nice with it, but I'm not entirely sure
Well, whenever I'm home I'm online on Skype, so whenever you wish, you can text me :D I'm not available from 4 pm to 0:30 am because of college though (classes aren't THAT long, it's just the college that it 2 cities far from where I live). I'm usually online on facebook during some classes, though. Also, I've been waking up at around 11 AM or something. (Be aware that those times are -2 GMT)
If you have a facebook account, you could try adding me there too :D Sometimes I share some brazilian stuff so you might not understand that, but anyways :P here
's my profile.
You should post something on your collab forum, so Leila knows you're alive (unless you already contacted her somewhere, idk). AFAIK she was worried with your absence too.
And about college, I've had a few homeworks and presentations here and there but they weren't that tiring - however, I'm much much more lazier than I was in first semester haha.
Actually recently I was able to present some stuff without feeling very nervous - I was a little bit, but since I used to be really really nervous at presentations, I'm glad (and kinda surprised) I wasn't at those ones =o
Also, talking about scruffy faces, here

Hi Tails,
Oh my gosh! Malmen is my twin, or my doppelganger from a parallel time line... this wouldn't be the first time, now would it?
Double OMG! I work at Burger King as my second part time job! Being a tourist town, it makes sense there would be BK'S there.

You look kind of like my cousin John... well the last time I saw him about 12 years ago or so. And Google translate says that English word "scruffy" is Brazilian for desalinhado. I had my suspicions this would be the trouble word. Even in English, it's not used much.

Melodica, huh? Looks like a cool instrument. I'm seriously thinking of sharing some of my ocarina playing. Mine can play about 1.5 octave. Much more than the Zelda ocarina.

Wow, you seem much more focused and motivated in life than me. Not even 19, and you're bilingual, tourist guide, late night college, plans on going to Sweden. By the way, if you do go there, never refuse a "fika". This is when a Swedish person asks you out to coffee. It is considered an insult to their country. It is a serious sign of disrespect, as silly as it may sound.

With English, as they say, practice makes perfect, right? You'll get it. In terms of nervousness, I reenacted a scene from Hamlet, and my heart was beating pretty hard. The more prepared you are for your presentations, the easier they should become.

I left a little feedback for Miss Leila, so no worry there. It distressed me to hear of you guys worrying about me.

Hope you have a nice day!

See ya around.

Even though I live in a touristic city there isn't a BK here haha only a Subway (I don't even like it a lot though)
Ahh scruffy...yeah, even though I know what means I haven't seen it used a ot as well
You should share yr ocarina playing! Maybe record a mp3 of it and send it as a sample to Detroit X, so we can sample it on our songs ^o^ (if it gets to the final bitpack, that is)
Well actually I am not as focused as it looks haha, I'm bilingual mostly because my mom is an english teacher (I don't even remember when and how I began to learn it), being a tourist guide wasn't really a dificcult job it wasn't really demotivating (I was even't even a very good attendant though, my strong points were english fluency and available time), etc etc.. Actually focus and motivation are two words that wouldn't describe me at all haha I'm really distracted and lazy.
Also thanks for the tip haha even though I doubt I'll remember that.
I'm usually well-prepared, but that isn't even the issue actually, idk I just get nervous or something... but it's getting better haha so no worries :3
Hope you have a nice day! Cya :D

Hey marcb0t, I really liked what you had to say in your post here. Reading through this page it really looks like you've got a positive flow of energy in your life. Too bad the future will end up a dystopia without you. They will have to figure it out on their own, I guess. Maybe the future people are better equipped than the past people, though, so maybe you should stick around here in the past... that is, unless we are the future people.

What you said in that post really struck a chord with me. I am a music major at a community college, pretty close to my first two AA degrees in music performance and jazz studies. I hadn't been playing music for about 10 years since after high school, and it wasn't until 2015 when I finally decided to go all in and bought myself a clarinet, having never played it before. I was playing trombone in jazz band that semester, since that had been my instrument in high school, but I had always wanted learn clarinet, saxophone, and flute. I own all three now. So far I own a tenor and a soprano sax for my saxophone category, hope to one day own an alto and bari as well, although not too motivated to purchase a bari, even at the cheap prices. Not really much storage where I'm living right now. I plan to continue to earn my bachelors degrees in Music Performance, Education, and possible Jazz studies if I decide to triple major. No rest for the miscreants.

I am planning on buying an AKAI EWI(Electronic Wind Instrument) this upcoming semester, however, and my music production should skyrocket from there. I am learning all of the ins and outs of music production at the moment, starting with trackers, and I've sort of fallen in love with the amiga trackers Protracker 2.3d and the final AHX. For my Linux desktop I have Milkytracker for my more advanced samples and tracking methods, plus a lot of .mod files aren't classic amiga compatible. For MIDI and sequencing I am using Rosegarden for the moment, and of course for raw audio there is audacity.

Again, I really like what you said. I've noticed a lot of people will spend a ton of time in the practice room, and the ones that really shine are the ones who also go out and perform in front of people. There really is nothing to lose. When people say 'practice' I think they are forgetting that there are different forms of practice. There is dedicated practice, where you lock yourself in a woodshed and work out everything that sounds bad until it doesn't, exercising your techniques such as long tones, scales, arpeggios, etc, and general experimenting, but there are also the other forms of passive practice and performance. We need to practice going up on a stage--no matter how small or large--and simply giving it our all. It's like in DBZ we need to get stronger and do our best. If we're not strong enough, we'll get stronger. It's really simple. Not easy, just simple. :)

Also, don't worry about the Linux stuff and other programming abilities. There are those of us who will do that stuff so you don't have to. Just be yourself. I'm sorry to hear that you had gone through a rough patch in your life. I know how it goes. I was completely homeless from about 2010-2014, staying in shelters and couch surfing, sometimes sleeping outside on the ground. It will get better, and if you work as hard as you can, it will be okay.

Just remember how much your post inspires people and allow it to inspire you.
