i don't use social media often, but i've been looking around today to see if people are talking about International Men's Day and overall it's disappointing.

I'm a man, and I didn't even know about it. That's how far we've come.

I will say, in light of this being page 1000, that I’ve come to this community and vented quite a bit and (as probably the highest poster in this thread) found quite a lot of support, comfort, etc in

I rejoined WATMM. What'd I miss? ?

Feminism literally is the only reason I never get laid, it's not my twisted attitude towards women & my ugly face & general unattractiveness - impossible!

I remember a Russian joke about the Women's Day. It goes like this: There's one day for women each year, but for men there are 364.

 

 

I'll get me coat.

There was a power-outage a few days ago, which shut my computer off suddenly.  Any time this has happened in the past, there's a temporary fuck up with my soundcard that I'm always able to resolve after dicking around a bit.  But this time it seems permafucked, at least in the important ways - I can't play anything in Ableton.  Cubase works until I apply EQ, which kills the sound.  I have a new computer that needs to be assembled, so hopefully once I get that up and running I can salvage everything.  I suspect a lot of plug-ins I use will not be compatible, but there are only a few outside VSTs I use in Ableton.  I was able to at least record keyboards in Cubase for the song I just started working on.  Pretty major FWP for me.  In brighter news, my covid test came back negative.

I really need to get in the habit of creating stems when my tracks are completed.

Our clown of a landlord has given us a 30 day 'notice to vacate' in the middle of lockdown, and has given the deadline as a week before xmas.

More of a FWS really as we're planning to stop paying rent and staying here for 6 months now, as is UK law since covid.

I saw, I can’t believe that, especially right at Christmas like this! What a dick landlord (it’s a “management company” or something innit? Not like an actual individual?).

hey if they’re going to be illegal shits then it’s time for a little counter squatting 😂

gym closure got extended again, even though quebec health ppl said it's a bad idea to keep all this shit closed for so long

honestly i'm kinduv into it at this point - i'm using all of this intense isolation weirdness (i have been going several days at a time without even seeing another human face or speaking out loud) to fuel my creative efforts. i've got another album half finished & imo it's quite good//unusual//new sonic territory for me. hopefully i finish it & a few ppl hear it before civilization collapses *fingers crossed*

I've always wanted to play squash but have never lived anywhere close to a squash court.  I wish sports weren't so exclusive.

Does anyone know if it's possible to play without a court ?

Just realized I now need to purchase an old school, plug-into-the-wall phone to be able to use the intercom at my new building, but need to be able to let the internet provider into the building today for setup. So I have to get them to phone my cell, and then go downstairs to physically let them in  :facepalm:

Bonus fwp:  When they were an hour late I called to see what was up... turns out the technician assigned to the job wasn't able to work today and they just didn't tell me. 
 

No internet at home til monday morning! Now THAT is a true first world problem lol

I magically unfucked my soundcard by accidentally hitting the switch on my power bar while unplugging something, which once again violently shut off my computer.  This should have had the effect of damaging it further beyond repair, but instead it made everything go back to normal.  And yes, I had tried reseting my computer several times before this.  Seriously WTF.

Go make another track and then come back. It’ll be dope as hell or the problem will be obvious

there's typically more than one going at a time so i  can work on something else a bit and return to it. i listened to it on laptop speakers and it made more sense so i  think i know what the problem is already but we'll see.

The client who drove me crazy for the better part of 4 years finally has his album cover ready, and it's sooooo amazing... like something you'd find on one of those best worst all time lists.  I can't share because it would be unprofessional/disrespectful, but holy moly.  I want the whole world to see... the fact I have to keep it on the DL is killing me.

just saw that "Ready Player Two" is coming out and i'm annoyed because I know someone will recommend it me and I'll have to tell them how much I hated "Ready Player One" and to fuck off w/that johnny come lately generic sanctimonious bullshit. I read about 10 pages of Ready Player One and it so annoyed me that i took it back to the book store for credit. I tried a couple times to read it based on some people going gaga over it but no. it's shit.

I'm pretty sick of having my weight fluctuate this often. Going to have to put down the booze for a minute after this week.

I was super drunk when I watched it and thought it was comical that the main protagonists kind of achieve their goal or whatever, but all of their society's problems clearly remain when the credits start rolling.

Entertaining action sequences, though.
