Grrr.


I hate musical ignorance.


Someone tonight said they were into the heaviest music possible, and could I play trivium.

He didn't quite understand when I offered to go heavier and played emperor -thus spake the nightspirit.


Hah, I'd be an awful DJ, I'd only play what I wanted to hear. Did you play Emperor, anyway?

Not pissed off, not even annoyed, this is more of a mild bugbear.
I've mentioned this before (and got summarily shouted down and basically told I was an idiot by Xzar) but the only thing to spoil my day today was one of my mates' insistence on bringing over his Guitar Hero game.
I don't like (and have made no effort to hide the fact), play or even own any computer games. I've played some in the past and (with the exception of Resident Evil 1 & 2) all I've had at the end is a distinct feeling of "well, is that it"? Or sore thumbs.

So, after the typical gamer's introductory mantra of "You'll love it, have a go. You'll love it. Have a go", he proceeded to set it up, start playing it and twenty five minutes later actually let me on it. For one song (which, unsurprisingly, I failed EPICALLY at). Then, after a couple more goes, and just starting to get the hang of it and match his scores, up it went to the next level and I was fucked. After which, as per usual in these situations, that was followed by a quick "here, let me show you how you do it. It's really quite easy" (which, I'm quite unashamed to say gave me a wee bit of sadistic pleasure to see him fuck it up almost as badly as I had done).

It's not my mate's fault. He's great, and one of only three or four people I would truly think of as a "best" friend (and obviously I come across here as a total knob), but he suffers from a disease caught and passed around by gamers. A total unawareness at other people's lack of interest in their computers and games. He's no different to anybody else I know who indulges in these frivolous, pixellated pastimes. But what is it that drives these people to try and coerce you into playing their game only to not let you actually have a go or just use it as a means to show off their talent at it?

That sounded far more like a rant than I originally anticipiated actually...

Don't be a woman, I never said you were an idiot at all.

It was implied.
And I like being a woman (well, at the weekends anyway).

Finding out that the police (no, not Sting & Co, the actual police) have objected to licenses being granted to The Bulldog Bash and Derbyshire Rock & Blues Custom Show. I think the chances of them going ahead are slim.

Bugger, bugger, bugger, bugger, bugger! :x

Molly Hatchet for BOA anyone?

...and my wooden tankard is leaking! BASTARD! Hopefully some more beeswax will put that right .
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Isn't that like an attack/defence modifier or something?

It was the context in which it was said. She also said I made her feel uncomfortable and she didn't feel she could act herself around me :cry:
