I was checking how I stood overall on the members list when sorted by post count. I just noticed how close he was and how long he hadn't used that account, so I found the counts for his other two and added them up. Came out at 20,012 assuming I can do basic maths.

We have decided. Lis' special attack is shanking, and mine is fire. Glorious fire.

If I had the equipment, I'd record an entire album. Guitars would be palm muted chugs on one downtuned open power chord, no breaks, no solos. The lyrics would be a short children's book, 1 chapter per song, one syllable per guitar chug. Drums would be blast beats throughout each track, no breaks. It would be grindcore. Tracks would end on the last word per chapter which would be easy as there would be no time signature. No gigs would be accepted. Albums would cost £2.66 available on download only. I might draw a smiley face as a band logo.

I have not thought of a band name yet. Suggestions welcome, and I'd give credit in the notepad supplement that would come with the download .rar.

Not totally sure if it would in my case, as I don't drive to work at the moment, yet with my current plan, I'm covered for work-based journeys. So I'd imagine I'd be fine.
Though that reminds me of some stupid faff we had with my last insurer - we didn't find out until I went to renew that I wasn't actually covered for driving to work. However, if I were to drive to the pub I work at for a drink with friends (using the same car park, and most likely even the same space), I'd be covered. It's all a bit silly really, though I suppose people not noticing things like that is how they make their money - if you didn't notice and had an accident, they wouldn't have to pay jack shit.

I think the doom metal version of "Cuckoo's nest" was a better idea.

I'm actually serious about the doom metal project. I just need motivation to actually try it.

Do you want a uke player? Mine sounds lovely plugged in with overdrive.

Can I be producer? I have all the equipment to record this.

Also I can be the Andy Warhol to your Lou Reed and we'll make a masterpiece.

I would be delighted for you to take role of producer. I may even ask you to take on bass duties.

All of the things. Except anything involving Formby or Starland Vocal Band.

Next time we're near Moseley, we'll have to stop by to see what a doom uke is capable of.

When you have found out, you MUST post a sample of it on line. Doom Uke sounds .....(other than like the end of the world...or is that Doom Nuke) Epic

Hey gang, I'd be very grateful if as many people as possible could fill out this awesome and very short survey on video game audio for my dissertation:

I know you're probably fed up of these, but it's much appreciated.
