stupid first world problems you're dealing with

Do most people have a goth phase??!

 

(sorry, probably something subjective I'm missing lol, just makig sure I can add "goth phase" to my excel spreadsheet of phases I missed". 

 

there are maybe four paths to idm.

 

"goth" -> industrial -> idm (i got into aphex through nin and nothing records)

autism (it sounds like my video games and i see norse gods fighting in the sky when i listen to drukqs)

mortal kombat soundtrack -> the prodigy "funky shit on the event horizon soundtrack"/pi soundtrack/matrix soundtrack -> idm (lesser autism)

and then there's being british, which means you're probably around fifty years old and went to raves in the eighties, but most of these people are dead.

^ to page breaks two many

 

What are you using now as a content aggregator?

 

Re: Data... the page on Google where it shows you your location history is terrifying. I remember looking back and seeing walks we did in 2014 through Tokyo etc. Also, it also became quite apparent that i frequently went a longer way home to stop by a bottle shop, and outside of my travel to and from work, i lived a sedentary lifestyle. Terrifying indeed.

 

it's an secrete.

 

yeah, location history is terrifying. I sent a friend the link to his own one which he didn't realise existed and he immediately flipped out. Google is an ongoing concern, but I have more faith in them than others, at this point. while they could conceivably be pressured by governments into divulging personal records in specific situations (e.g. terrorism incident), I think they're less in bed with dodgy commercial interests or other unsavoury 3rd parties than, say, tha Zucc.

 

edit: you can disable location tracking/history, I'm pretty sure. I've kept it on cos I actually use it to look up things every now and then.

I think I got into IDM via ambient music. Like Autechre and Boards of Canada being mentioned in the ambient forums (or news goups..) and Aphex played in Chill Out Zone.

 

I think there is also the path for people who think they appear intelligent if  they listen to something that is being called intelligent. Same with the "progressive" genres.

Rented a small studio space for super cheap but now I have no idea what to do with all the extra space in the living room. Moved the couch to an optimal listening position but now there's this weird bit of room leftover behind it. fml  

 

Definitely had a heavy goth phase but moved on to multicoloured nail polish pretty quickly. By then aphex was already deeply embedded within me and my life. So deeply. Embedded. Within.

I've learned so much the last few pages.

NIN/industrial was kind of my way in, in that I started making electronic music inspired by those things... but more melodic and less repetitive.  When my friend heard the music I was working on he said it pretty much sounded like IDM, then burned me a comp CD with Autechre, Plaid and Squarepusher.  Another friend lent me Geogaddi around this time, and I bought Confield.  I had heard the Aphex NIN remixes long before that though, not sure why it didn't open the floodgates much sooner.

 

FWP - didn't discover IDM until it was on its way out.

I spent 3 hours doubting a mix I did for a commercial that'll be shown in cinemas later this month. The leq(m) measurements were fine, but it seemed awfully loud to me. Turns out Waves' WLM Meter was set to Multi Mono instead of 5.1. I ended up trying out NUGEN's VisLM2 instead. It's good.

Bought a second hand po-33 KO from a Dutch ebay-like site which according to a track & trace service had been delivered last Tuesday. I think the postman is still playing with it.

Highly unlikely you'd be denied for that.

looks like ive been denied, also flattened by beauracracy. 

 

had to submit additional documents, but the website flatout refuses to pick up my ETA application and link it to a GCkey so they can tell me what documents. if its documents from my arrest i dont have them anyway. 3 business days for a help request and im flying monday morning. its my own fault for forgetting that im a hardened criminal, id probably have had time to sort all this out if id done it last month.

Kale in kimchi. It's this "organic" variety I purchased @ Costco. But none of the Korean restaurants I know in town would ever put fucking kale in their kimchi.

I only want the real deal from now on. No more of this pretentious "organic" bullshit.
