    Thank you both very much. It's a far cry from the 4.Slow S197. I miss that car, but there's a little bit of that spirit in this GT.

    I'm 22 and have my dream car. I can't believe it.

    So @Srockzz, Did you watch Phil yet? If you didn't. I don't blame you.

    Fair point, I'm glad you like him. I don't, but that's just me. Also, he can be informative every now and then. I'll give him credit for that.

    Hey, Technology Connections! I love that guy.

    In answer to your question, the majority of the time the VHS-esque filters are used, subtlety isn't the target. The creators in question want to make the video look as exaggeratedly dated and/or retro as they can. Also, the distortion and lines that define the VHS often did look about as bad as the filter—but only while pausing or rewinding. It's a formative part of the VHS experience, but can't really be worked into modern digital video authentically.

    Also relevant, some background on one of those filters:

    @Srockzz, I have a question for you. What do you think of the James E-20?

    Well, I wanna change my pfp to a Green Day album cover soon. Let's just hope Warner Music Group doesn't get me.

    Here's something for @appesh1.

    Lily (from Psych2Go obviously): i luv Improovement pill so much.
    Improvement Pill: Thanks, I'm so smart.
    Lily: You're welcome, honey =)

    Lol, Improvement Pill sure has a way of being "charming". @Srockzz and @MrCin (from what I can tell) don't seem to mind him. I could be wrong, though.

    I put that in quotation marks for a reason. Apparently, Lily loves him. @appesh1. Could you make a picture of Lily (from Psych2Go obviously) and Improvement Pill getting married?

    Let's be honest, Lily is just a strawman for anything you don't like, which is pretty lazy writing.

    Well you can stick your nine to five livin'
    And your collar and your tie
    And stick your moral standards
    'Cause it's all a dirty lie,
    You can stick your golden handshake,
    And you can stick your silly rules,
    And all the other shit
    That they teach to kids in school,
    Cause I ain't no fool!

    It might be lazy writing. However, I wanna make a plot someday where there's 2 versions of Lily. One new, one "old". The old Lily would love Improvement Pill and political stuff and the new Lily would like other stuff. I'll see what I can do with my writing.

    As far as self-improvement. I actually don't mind it much. I just have problems with Improvement Pill. I've talked about him before, so I won't ramble about him. As for politics. The devs have been banning people more lately, so I'd rather not talk about it.

    Apparently you do mind because you've spent the last 60 pages complaining to strangers about people that want people to improve on themselves. Think of how much you could have done instead of spewing nonsense on a forum about a video game.
