here's squidge, my lil general, when he was younger... he's six or seven years older than that now and pretends to be a stern, mature puddy tat now... still has the grace of a sack of potatoes though =)

Nah, after he tried to get "in" on his jokes is when things turned awful.

Passable veggie bacon. I don't even like bacon, I just want to know it can be done.
i actually think quorn brand veggie bacon is pretty damn good. definitely the best imitation meat i've ever had.

for me, i want to ... well, to keep getting better at music. and to release it and maybe for it to mean something to someone. that's about it, really.

this is a nice way of looking at it.

i'm going to do it myself too probably- though only really with the main intention of getting my own music out there. i'll probably see if i can scrape up enough to put other people's out too some day, if ever i meet anyone who makes great music and doesn't have a better option elsewhere. but for me at least, it'll be worthwhile purely because it'll be a means of getting my own stuff out there.
fucking hell - that thing about sean penn. i had no idea.

and i knew jimmy page was a fucking creep but i didn't know the thing with lori maddox started like that.

The Naked Juice case just settled in April, payments are supposed to be soonish.
i swear, every single post i see you make where it's just a quote i think you're really gutted about something and then i remember '...oh yeah, that's just his signature... just like it was the last fifteen times i had this thought'

I agree that having an end in sight is essential to being able to survive a long distance relationship. Whether it is vague or specific, knowing that you'll be together again eventually makes it all so much easier. I mean, it's still reeeally hard though. But if you guys are currently in a good place with each other, I'm sure you can make it work.
100% agree with this.
personally, it didn't work for me the one or two times i tried it. but neither of them had an end in sight - they were liable to be long distance for.. well, years, with no idea of whether that would change at the end or not. and so it didn't work. i kept one going absolutely faithful and totally in love for at least six months - but it was just too hard. we had an ocean between us, though - so it was a little different.

i'd say that it's a conversation you're going to have to have. and it might not be a deciison you can make *before* it happens - it might be that you have to try it out for a month or two and then see where you're at after that. you're both mature adults, you have a great deal of respect and trust and love for eachother i'd imagine - i'd say it's totally worth giving it a shot but that the answer might only come to you after maybe two months of giving it a go. see where you're at after a trial run and that might tell you everything you need to know,

unfortunately - there isn't going to be any *easy* answer to it. it's going to be hard no matter which way it goes. but i hope that you manage to come to some conclusion which ends in as happy and functional a way as possible for the both of you.

sorry if this answer is a little disjointed and unhelpful - it's real late and i've had a few. so i might be less helpful than i'd like to be. but my thoughts go out to you.

i think your friend and/or his mom was confused.
his mum was *definitely* confused
a friend of mine was telling me how his mum was having problems with her new computer recently because whatever website it was that she frequented and was trying to get at didn't work on any browser *above* IE8.

i never found out what that site was but fucking hell.

- continue improving songwriting, get at least an EP's worth of stuff recorded (this.... well, i've got probably a double album's worth of stuff recorded already. but i want to start from the ground up on entirely new stuff and i want to get recordings that do it justice. so this is definitely the most important one to me and is also potentially the trickiest)
- continue learning python and start putting it to use (i just got a laptop (linux) and have just started learning python. the plan is to make some of my own applications, things to help me sort and store my music recordings rather than just have them all in a huge mess like they are right now)

i can see where you got your username from... what a jerk!

it will be - right now, of course, we're still in a position where all we can do is wait and see.

one drag is that i was chatting to a friend of mine about it and after we chatted for a bit and she kept on being defensive about it and saying how it definitely wasn't going to go down as it was being reported and that it was all reactionary bullshit, she  suddenly bursted into some huge rant about 'the far left' and 'wheelchair critics' and 'pitchfork waving'
i don't know where it came from but it left me with a bit of a bad taste in my mouth.
i think it was just, as you said, the relative lack of content on there that put me off. i'm not absolutely in love with the layout either, though i've just checked it and that's better than i remembered it being.

i can't quite make my mind up on this youtube thing - i can't decide if i think that they're being unbelievably short sighted or not. they're going to go down in the estimations of a LOT of people and they might lose a lot of business in the small label indie scene - but the flipside of that is maybe they don't give a fuck. they're going to be raking in the dough from any indies that do participate, all major labels, all non music related content and all their existing advertising. it could be that they could loser a huge chunk of their indie userbase and it not even make a dent.
yep. that's one of the first things i thought too. i've never been very fond of vimeo but i think bandcamp is great. i imagine i'll be using it a lot more.

not to defend Google here, but if artists aren't agreeing to a royalty program with them, doesn't YouTube legally have to drop them (and is the right thing to do as to honor the artist's wishes)?

"Yo, that service that makes people pay to listen to our music isn't something we want to be a part of" doesn't mean "go ahead and use our music anyway but just don't pay us for it."
well i've got two things to say to that - first up is that i was moronic (it was a VERY long day at work... my brain is coming out of my ears right now) and didn't quite grasp exactly what the situation was with regards to it being a paid service from the 'public's point of view as well.
but the second thing is that i can't believe that their being booted off youtube is an unhappy side effect of an otherwise nice scheme. i can't believe that youtube are doing it as a way of not ripping the artists off so much as doing it as a way of saying 'cough up or you're outta here'. it seems to me that they could quite comfortably leave non-paying musicians on the 'normal' youtube and just not let anyone download their vids or view them without ads.

sorry, i know that post was disjointed as hell - it's about all i'm capable of right now.

It looks like they can still upload junk to youtube, they just can't put ads on it to make money anymore unless they sign up for their music to be on the shitty pay service or whatever. I don't know, the more I read the less sense it makes.
not just me then.

Here's a more recent picture of me:

now with 75% less limbs!
thought you'd all be interested in this - just saw it a few minutes ago myself.
the tl;dr of it is that shit's fucked. youtube (google, i believe?) are doing their best job to alienate independent musicians and make themselves look like a bunch of money grabbing pricks.
job well done.

if this goes ahead (which it seems like it definitely is going to) i can imagine that youtube is two shakes of a lamb's tail away from becoming a much, much less interesting website. also a much less popular one.
fuck em. disgusting.

Lots of time and even then it might not stop being awkward. I have two exes I would not feel awkward hanging out with but it took a few years for it to get that way.

Last time I hung out with my last long-term ex it was awkward and then we decided to get back together and it crumbled in like a week. Sometimes being friends just doesn't work and you just have to go your separate ways, which is unfortunate.
ding ding ding ding

this is pretty much my experience of it.
would it be possible to set it so that after posting a reply, you go back to the thread you just posted in rather than back to the forum itself?

unless of course nobody else would want this.
oo v cool - i've always wanted to check out canada. is there a rough setlist announced?
seems a lil heavy for elementary school kids (to put it mildly). never heard of it but am morbidly curious. anyone have any screenshots?
