Ahh, that must have been brilliant! I remember I saw NFG when I was 15, they were really good, and LTJ are just amazing live.
I had an ace hour long nap. Probably going to go find something to eat in the mall across the road as I haven't eaten in close to 24 hours now...

Being productive.

They're still poor quality and not properly mixed, but if I could get critiqued on whether the music's any good/fitting for these, I'd much appreciate it. It's two parts of a whole film that I'm doing sound design/foley/soundtrack for.

Really sweet stuff, specially the second vid. Good job. :yes:

WMMHT: Got my day planned out so I can get a load of stuff done that should have been done a week ago. Gonna go rock climbing for a couple of hours later as well to break up the monotony of shitty maths equations. :D

I think this made the majority of the world happy :lol:


Indeed. In spite of him not living up to his hype and not fulfilling his promises, I'd much rather see him in the WhiteHouse than that flip-flopping lunatic Romney.

Also, seeing a candidate backed by Springsteen beaten by a candidate backed by Kid Rock would have been all kids of wrong.

As well as Obama getting back in, some US states have made positive steps towards marriage equality and the freeing up of de 'erb!

I hope within my lifetime, we reach a point where all the "yellow" drugs on the following graph are legal, regulated (standards on purity/additional ingredients and all the information, including strength/dose, marked clearly on the packet) and taxed.

...and PSY seems to be gaining on Justin Bieber on the all time youtube views chart. Gangnam Style song may be getting a bit annoying, but Bieber being #1 is an insult to music.

WHMMHT; A hot shower. I now smell of my favourite peach scented moisturizer instead of today's lunch at work.

Looks like I'm keeping my car, then :lol:

Found out that Webuyanycar.com greatly exaggerate their offers online, and knock them down after you commit to selling them your car. Sold to a local dealer instead for £1700 :) Plus, my rents pestered me to tell them what was up and I said how I was worrying about money, so they wired me £1000!
I feel guilty as hell accepting the money from them, but on the plus side that's my rent paid for the next 4 months. Seriously cannot explain how lucky I feel to have those guys.
Buy me a beer at:

I am pretty indifferent about that announcement. I was gutted about King Diamond. Fucking overjoyed by poxy Lamb of God, id have quite happily watched Amorphis and Dark Funeral would be ace.
