      I have a number of stupid music projects I really need to start again.

      I swear I spend more time updating games than actually playing them.


      ok I know that's not true but fuck you it feels like it

      Do I want the Xbox one, or do I want to go to download.

      The struggle is real.

      I feel like my ability to perfectly fold a fitted bed sheet should be CV worthy.

    • Music shifts and snobbery

      I've always been a big music guy, I love listening to it, writing it and working on the production side of it, nothing gets my blood pumping more than live music. In the last few years I've really taken a back seat, slacked massively in writing and haven't gotten to many gigs, not for lack of wanting but more that the scene (in Glasgow at least) seemed to shift, around the same time as the promotion group I was with crashed and burned. So I jumped ship, with only a shred of credibility left, but that's the risk you run when you associate, or should I say do the leg work for a company that is run buy an idiot and scam artist (which I didn't discover until it was far too late).


      Fast forward a few years to where I stand now, trying to break back into promotion, I've come to the conclusion metal and hardcore in this city has to an extent died, the people I knew as the hardcore guys, the straight edge guys, the die hard metal heads who swore blind that they would never quit, that they would never write anything that wasn't what they where doing have all shifted to the mainstream norm, all producing Biffy Clyro/Twin Atlantic style music that while isn't bad just isn't what they claimed to be, and now scold the type of music they once claimed to love as noise. I'm not opposed to branching out and writing different music, not at all, I've had all different kinds of music projects from electronic dance right through to the heaviest grindcore, my point is of these guys I once knew I can count on one had the guys still doing what there where, with differences obviously but overall still within the same branch. Great bands I knew have split with the bulk of them going of to form lighter alt rock and generally more publicly palatable music, as if they where not in it for the music but rather some sense of notoriety. Hell even the guys and girls who claimed to be edge are for the most part heavy drinkers and smokers, completely abandoning a lifestyle the clung to with such vehement. It makes you wonder.

      Then we have the multitude of snobs I've come across, the "it must be this way exactly or its not worth listening to" type of people who will herald one form of music or even just a sub-genre over everything whist shitting on anything else they come across, and I'm just not down with that at all. I'll lesten to just about anything, my playlist varies from Enya, to the vengaboys to bands like Whitechapel and we butter the bread with butter, pretty much anything goes IMO which I why I'm always confused by people who need to have it one way and one way only.


      TL;DR I miss the old Glasgow metal and hardcore scene, am annoyed people I knew turned out to be hypocrites, and just enjoy music, branch out, you never know.

      Came into work to find the WIFI is on which means hearthstone at work, AND a new fleece that is both soft and warm, a twofold upgrade from my old one.

      Today is a good day.

    • It makes me sad.

      It does, it makes me terribly sad that we have lost even one member due to people making others feel unwelcome, unwanted and like they mean little. The worst part is that it's not been just one member, I've seen three or four go in the last few months alone citing those very reasons and it begs the question, what the fuck is wrong with you people?

      I get it, you and your supercilious need to make everyone think your a big man, but why not do that in a constructive way, be the big man by actually doing something of worth, not spreading hate and tearing people down.


      TL;DR some of your are complete cunts.
