  1. Most of the security guards around town know me now, so it is difficult to get away with 'it' these days. However, ladies entrance at the local mosque, they haven't cottoned on yet. It's close to a bus stop so I just pretend I'm waiting for a bus.
  2. I have very poor bluetooth connectivity when standing outside my local mosque. Probably the CIA.
  3. My friend has not run into 'Andy' recently at the twitchers group, so perhaps they are a bit more focused on the studio now.
  4. As a gen X'er, can I please just have my death of history and slightly bewildering postmodernism back instead of what all this shite is.
  5. I warned you lot years ago to keep women out of electronic music. Did you idiots listen? No, you just wept like teased vaginas. This is exactly the scenario I was thinking of when I made that prophetic call.
  6. Bit harsh on the space echo. I think the TE thing started with the thought, 'we need an audio interface, how do we wank it off a bit to justify our already set price point,' rather than lets build the perfect compact portable mixer, which is why it is seemingly very niche. As always opportunity cost comes into this. I needed a 'compact' mixer and ended up with a midas venice 160 that used to be owned by Liza Minelli that she used for karaoke sessions, for less than half the price of this. Why would I want something that screams electronic music bro is going to date rape you, when I could have something that has literally channeled drunken renditions of Cabaret by Judy Garland's daughter as she casts her gaze over a celebrity sex orgy almost certainly involving Bianca Jagger and Matt Willis from Busted.
  7. The manchester and liverpool clubs will become a very, very small footnote in the history of nufc.
  8. None of this matters now that the toon are staying up and will come to dominate all football for the next 1,000 years.
  9. I think you'll find his name was Semen Semenchenko.
  10. Mods, in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, please change everyone who has posted in this thread's screen name to Semen Semenchenko. I want this thread bursting with Semens. I want Semens up to my ears so that i'm breathing through a snorkel. Just a big happy circle of Semens. thanks, bukkakapo
  11. Mods, please change my name to Semen Semenchenko.
  12. When you look back at some of the great trolls wattem has had, ilqx hermolia xpli is just very boring. When I was a child, I had synesthesia. His posts taste of the colour grey.
  13. I've been playing an online game recently that relies on having a mic/comms. It's pretty popular in N america, Europe and UK and the UK servers are usually evenly mixed. By far and away the most toxic players are the Brits (with the possible exceptions of the French and the Russians, but they tend to be far fewer). Within that, the scousers and mancs are by some distance the worst offenders. Everyone knows how absolutely awful mancs are, but I haven't had any dealings with proper scousers for years and I'd forgotten just how whiny and passive aggressive (or overtly aggressive if they've had a drink) they are. The Scots are always drunk, no matter the time of day. Strangely the yanks are pretty much universally nice, even the ones with overtly maga usernames. The dutch are the friendliest, but the germans are funnier. I'm having long term prejudices both compounded and torn apart and I'm not sure how I feel about this.
  14. Yes lol. Here's another one for you. At the international students orientation they were giving us a welfare lecture and what to look out for if we thought one of our peers was a drug user. They started talking about lack of care over personal hygiene and appearance. At which point I shouted, "look, all the germans have been smoking marijuana".
  15. A long time ago when I was at uni in the States, there was an Asian American in the room a couple of doors down in the dorm. They had a big wipeable board outside their door for messages. One day coming back from class there was a queue of 20 other Asian American kids filing into the room. I looked at the message board and they had written, "Only the cool people are allowed in this room". I replaced this with, "Only the oriental people are allowed in this room". There was uproar when they filed back out. Still makes me chuckle. Anyway, only the cool people are allowed in the autechre room.
  16. Went to the hairdressers to get my pandemic man bun chopped off. Had autistically prepared my social interaction. "Man buns huh, they're just like a 21st century comb over etc". Got there and the hairdresser had a man bun. Sat in silence for 45 mins staring into the mirror, contemplating all my awful life decisions instead. Quite good haircut though.
  17. My cat has her own name for me. Or at least a vocalisation that she only uses when she sees me or wants to call me from another room. It's not a give me attention meow as she has plenty of those, and they're the same regardless of who she is talking to. Is this a thing?
  18. It could be an eq issue, or it could be composition. Don't forget you can use eq on busses/sends. Useful for effects sends in particular.
  19. I reverse all of my audio files when not in use, otherwise music becomes too disposable. Do get the odd complaint on soulseek though.
  20. Worth seeing live as well if you get the chance.
  21. When I first moved to London I was living beneath a large Irish catholic family consisting of mum, dad and nine siblings in a 3 bedroom flat. All of the kids were into Irish dance. Bloody river dance every night. When they moved out I convinced the landlord to resurrect his old 'no Irish, no blacks no dogs' sign though we did cross out the 'no blacks, no dogs' bit. Ended up with a couple of Saudi Arabian students. Nice lads who kept themselves to themselves. Very quiet right up until the night of the explosion. A couple of weeks later the cat found a severed hand in the back hedge once we were allowed back into the flat. Tried to hide it under the bed. Turned out not to be related to the explosion though, the local adolescent gang had found a tortoise and removed its shell, and then just threw it into the hedge.
