      The Inaugural Stomping Grounds was on at the weekend, and it was alright. There was some creativity there, and at least the opening half of the show was very entertaining.


      I enjoyed the whole show, however I think I need to maybe watch without commentary or something because it was really grating at points.


      I was glad that Samoa Joe vs Ricochet got a decent amount of time, and really gave us a decent match, as it could have gone in a complete other direction. It was the exact kind of match that both men needed really and it was good, well paced, back and forth too. I’m excited that Ricochet hasn’t been forgotten, and that he’s getting the spotlight.


      As for the New Day vs Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens match, well, it was just another solid match wasn’t it? Eventually what happened on Tuesday night on Smackdown made sense, but starting with The New Day, who had just lost, against the champions. Anyway, the match itself was entertaining, as Xavier Woods was kept in the ring for so long and Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn looked good as a team again cutting off the ring and working very well.


      I thought that the Dolph Ziggler vs Kofi Kingston match was very innovative, especially with the ending of the match, and while the challenger didn’t really fit in other than needing to be an obstacle for the champion.


      I liked the Becky vs Lacey Evans match, but it was obvious that Becky was calling all the shots, and it was a shame at points that Lacey couldn’t keep up. I really liked how it tied into the end of the show too, although I do feel like the last match did drag on a bit, and spent far too much time building up, and was a bit poorly paced.


      I don’t think there’s much else that I can comment on. I like Bayley, I like what she’s doing, but I am a bit tired of Alexa always being around, though what she’s doing with Nikki right now is intriguing. I don’t know what else to say right now other than that. Aside from Ricochet did we see a title change on the main show? I know the cruiserweights kind of smashed it in their title match. The IC title wasn’t on the line, and neither were the Raw Tag Team Titles.

    • Day 1999: Music Monday!

      1 day ago

      topham DHYB

      I’ve been playing quite a bit of guitar recently, and my new gear has me inspired.


      I got a little pedal, but it’s not really a pedal, all it does is split the signal so that it can go to two amps. It’s a Radial Bigshot ABY and it’s great. It provides the guitar signal to two outputs, and so they can be used in a stereo setting, or a wet-dry set up. I currently have it all set up in a wet-dry configuration.


      What that means is that I have a signal chain going into the splitter, then from there the amps, then in the effects loop of one there is reverbs and delays. It allows one signal to be stronger than the other, but allows the original signal to always be heard, through the dry amp.


      I’m currently using a 5W Fender Champion 600 as my dry amp, as it has no build in reverb and is very simple. That is wired up to the speaker cabinet I made a few weeks ago with the Eminence Swamp Thang speaker. Together they are a mighty combination, and get my sort of the tones I’ve been looking for. Or course, the lead in with an EQ pedal and tube screamer certainly helps, and I have a separate distortion to crank things up if I need it.


      IMG_20190624_225034.jpg?


      I then have as my ‘wet’ amp, with the Ocean Machine in the Effects Loop, a Fender Bassbreaker 15w amp. It’s a mighty nice amp, it’s not particularly clean even on it’s lowest gain, but it gets me everything I’m looking for. It goes from relatively clean, which I like, to very overdriven, through it’s ‘gain stages’ switch, and I like it’s ability to change the character that easily.


      IMG_20190624_225029.jpg?


      It’s quite an inspiring time here right now, and I’m having a great time writing music.


      In 1999 I first learned how to Ski, at Les Deux Alps. The trip started on my birthday.

    • Day 1998: Sunday!

      3 days ago

      topham DHYB

      In 1998, if I remember correctly. I got my first stitches when I busted my knee open.


      Today I’ve been watching the WWE event Stomping Grounds. It’s one of the first shows I’m watching live. Obviously, it’s not the best, but there have been some good matches. More on that on Wednesday. It’s just not Will Ospreay vs Dragon Lee or Shingo Takagi is it?


      I’ve been thinking about what to write on Tuesday, and I have a few ideas. about what to do. I might even do some maths. Excellent!


      Also today, Rachael and I worked on doing some tidying, cleaning, and general straightening of the house. It’s going well, and while there’s more work to do, progress has been made and that makes me happy.


      I don’t have much to say today, tomorrows journal has a rough plan, and so do Tuesdays and Wednesdays.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 1997: Too Much Path of Exile

      4 days ago

      topham DHYB

      I think I’ve played far too much Path of Exile recently. I only say that because I’m feeling as confident in playing now only 2 weeks after the league start as I did towards the end of the last league. I enjoy the game, it’s fun to play, but it sure is good as a time sink.


      Anyway, I don’t remember much specific about 1997, but I would have likely spent half the year in one of my favourite teachers classes.


      I went cycling today, and did the ride in less than an hour, which I was not anticipating. I thought the first half was slow, but I looked at the timer when I got to the turning point, and I was just under 32 minutes. I knew then I could do it, at the mercy of the lights, and it didn’t feel as tough as it has, but that’s surely just proof that I’m getting into it and getting a bit fitter.


      I played a bit of guitar today, and it was fun, I’m really enjoying the two amp set up, I’ll likely write about it on Monday and do photos and everything.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 1996: Not much...

      5 days ago

      topham DHYB

      It’s been a day where not much has happened. I woke up, still aching from the last few days worth of exercise, and spent the morning playing games and guitar, as well as having read a little more Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat.


      The afternoon was spent trying to figure out what food to have over the weekend and shopping for said food. Then the remainder of the day was lazed away, and has been quite relaxing.


      I was struggling to think of what happened in 1996, but there I know one thing that was for sure. There was a lot of celebration and parties that went on while the Euro 96 tournament was going on, as there was a lot of promise in the England team. For some reason, it was the first time I realised how big and important football was, and all at the same time recognised that I didn’t really care for it.


      Anyway, that’s all for the day! Have an excellent weekend! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 1995: Some Organised Thoughts!

      6 days ago

      topham DHYB

      In 1995, if I am not mistaken, I had my worst school teacher. I was made to stay in for breaks to work on my handwriting, as well as was told I had to write with my right hand, and it felt so odd and was also not great. It shook my confidence in my handwriting that I never started working on making it better until I was at least at university.


      Today, as well as yesterday, despite Tuesdays journal, I went to the gym, rather than cycled. I managed to run 1.5 miles in 10 minutes 36 seconds, as well as fitting in a decent exercise using weights and equipment. I am confident, alongside a sensible diet that I’ll be feeling myself again soon. I mean that in terms of the fact that I’m feeling a little overweight at the moment.


      I put out a podcast today, I recorded it with Dom on Monday, and it was a bit chaotic. It had been a while since I had recorded with someone, we had a lot to catch up on, and towards the end I’d received an email from the lawyer that I needed to address. That promptly bought the podcast to a close, and the podcast itself was alright. You can find it here!

    • Day 1994: Wrestling Wednesday!

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      in 1994, I think I learned to ride a bike. I remember being away on a holiday where there were tree divisions, and it was a spring holiday.


      Anyway, Will Ospreay. He might be the best wrestler in the world right now. Look for highlights of the two matches below, both have occurred within the past month for sure.


      I watched the match between him and Dragon Lee, I commented on it last week. Then, after that, I watched his Best of Super Juniors final match against Shingo Takagi. I heard some opinions, especially about which one people preferred and both of them are excellent matches. The match with Takagi was longer, and had more momentum shifts in it, and was the final part of the tournament.


      In all it’s glory, I was enthralled and captivated, there was a lot going on, and it definitely had my favourite move I’ve seen all year in it, where Takagi double hand chops Ospreays chest, and he goes down, and immediately kips back up. It was actually insane. There were so many cool moves in that match.


      But, I preferred the shorter match, the Junior Heavyweight championship match, the one that the tournament kind of lead up to. And while I say shorter, the match itself was still just over 20 minutes. It was paced excellently and was a very different match to the other match. Sure, there was still some crazy moves, but it felt like it built differently, the end was reached in a different way. Highlights don’t do these matches justice, sure, they still look good, but the overall story told throughout gets a bit lost.


      Will Ospreay might be the best wrestler in the world right now, and with the G1 coming up, I am very excited to see how A block treats him. The tournament might be one of the best, although last years felt plenty stacked as it was, but this year, it seems as though there are so many people in A block that the match quality will be very high.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 1993: Cycling Thoughts

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      I know that yesterday I skipped over saying anything about 1992 in my life, but I’m pretty certain nothing happened of note.


      However, 1993, I started school in January, and was put in a group of kids that had already been at school for a few months. This would eventually lead to me repeating a year, so that I was with people of my own age.


      So, I’ve been cycling yesterday and today, and I hope to cycle again tomorrow. I’ve been doing a 25.4 km route that takes me out to a section where interstates join, and then back again, and it’s been taking me about an hour. I looked at the data that my phone has captured, and tired to figure out why the way out felt slower than the way back, and it turns out that over the 12.7 km on my route, to the turning point there is an elevation increase of 65m.


      That makes sense, overall the difference in pace might not seem like it should be that much on the first leg, however, it’s between 4 and 6 minutes faster on the way back because of the elevation difference. I made it through the first half today in 31 minutes, which I thought was really good, knowing already that the way back was faster, and made it back in 26 minutes, with the final kilometre being the fastest.


      I’m having a good time on my bike, but I’m now acutely aware that I need to pay attention to what I eat. I feel like I’ve put on a few pounds, and I’m not exactly happy with where I’m at, but I know that with a bit of sensible food, and avoiding sodas, as well as some exercise, that I can get back to where I’m comfortable.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

    • Day 1992: Music Monday!

      1 week ago

      topham DHYB

      The new Baroness album, Gold & Grey, came out on Friday! It is magnificent, it’s 17 tracks of sonic delight.


      Baroness have a strange style, it’s sort of progressive doom-esque and it’s kind of all I want to listen to, but they’re so unique, and I can’t find anyone specifically like them.


      They’re in my top 5 bands at the moment, and this album is a delight to listen to. I think one of the tracks they previously released in the build up to the release of the album is my favourite so far, but the album is full of such diverse music that it’s hard to really figure out where it all lies. The album flows well, the tracks seem to coalesce and there’s just so much to it all.


      I have listened to the album twice, and the track Borderlines, as well as the song Seasons really stand out to me, and I hope it’s not just because of the familiarity I have with them, as they are the ones that have been out for a little longer.


      Within the music I really enjoy the dynamic between the frantic fast paced drums and the intentionally slower more careful choices for the guitar during some passages. The sections where everything is playing at the same pace are hectic and I really enjoy what the band has accomplished here.


      They’re probably the band that are inspiring me the most at the moment, and this album is really helping me along the way with writing music. This album, in my opinion, is essential listening.


      Have an excellent day! You’re all my favourites!

        Ah cool! Where abouts in the UK are you?

        Have a look in the forums for the UK fans threads, I can't remember the exact names, I think one of them is 'Who's from the UK?' and there's 'English RT Fans Unite' as well, though the English fans thread has loads of in jokes and can be quite offensive. This weekend RvB Scotland are doing their thing and streaming a bunch of activities, and they've got a game day in Glasgow, while there is a RT: UK meet up in London. Next weekend is London MCM where there will be a bunch of fans going, and a whole load of shenanigans going on.

        The community is pretty wonderful, I can't remember all the people right now who I should point you in the direction of, there are some people on the community hunter channel, Hightower, iSayWhat and The_Hybrid that are all busy on there, making videos and are a right laugh. Then there's Boomer who runs RT: UK which is on in September this year, and that'll be a riot, and there's a summer meet up too! Loads of things going on around the place too.

        Anyway, there's more than I can cover in the short time I have on lunch, but if you have any questions let me know, and for anything else, just jump in and have fun =)

      • JTNipp Mr. Trombone

        4 years ago

        Dude, Adam Lambert killed it. Great freaking rock show with some great tributes to Freddie thrown in along the way. They were in Dallas the week after last year's RTX. Their the reason I only spent 4 days in Austin instead of 8. I wasn't going to miss Queen when they were so close to my hometown (I live 2 hours drive from Dallas, 4 hours from Austin) in what may very well be their final tour. I took some of my spending money from my RTX fund and bought a ticket. I just had to.

      • topham FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold DHYB

        4 years ago

        Yeah man, it's one of those things. I can say in the moment that it's probably Diablo Swing Orchestra, but I could easily have written Marmozets, Pvris, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Agalloch, Gorguts or Soilwork among many others. How were Queen? My parents saw them a few weeks ago with Adam Lambert and said it was an incredible show.

      • JTNipp Mr. Trombone

        4 years ago

        for years and years its been Queen. I did get to see them in Dallas, TX last year so I'm happy about that. As far as the more Metal side of things, I don't really have a specific favorite. Just whichever one I'm in the mood for. Like you, I have some appreciation for most types of music.

      So I got mail from the UK today and TJ's first question was "Is it from Topham?" smiley0.gif

        Yeah. He just assumes UK = Topham at this point. Haha.

      Hi smiley1.gif
      Thank you for putting up with me and my stupidity! Also, thank you for laughing at me and pointing out my stupidity smiley8.gif
      No but seriously, thanks for being a friend and offering to be my travel buddy because I probably wouldn't be going to RTX if you hadn't! Also, thanks for letting me be a guest on your chats, even if I am a shitty guest because I don't do my research and try to kill you with my cat smiley1.gif

      Most of all; thanks for being you smiley12.gif

      No, but seriously. You're an awesome dude... an inspiration even. I watch every Topham Chat. You and I might be the lonely few who are still playing Destiny! and I thought you might appreciate that... Happy Valentine's Day!

        There should be in a comma in there that makes it seem like I'm looking forward to both. Maybe I'll never return to the thread due to that error.

      Hey dude, hope you're having a Top day. It's great reading your journals each day, you always seem really enthusiastic about everything you do and I hope we can meet one day at an RTUK event and have banter over a pint.

      Have an awesome evening, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

      David,
      I am forever grateful to you for helping a brother out and I hope what I was able to do in return was at least sufficient. You are a genuinely good dude, and that vibe is hard to get online a lot of times. I do drop in your RT conversation videos from time to time and I think you are doing a great thing with those! Much respect, brotha!

      Thanks for always being a cornerstone of this community, it's hard to think of the RT site without thinking of you and your daily posts and videos. You never cease to make me smile when we do get to play gaimez and hang out and I feel privileged to have been able to meet you in person not so long ago. I've always enjoyed our conversations; never change and stay amazing ^_^
      Love, Shelby smiley12.gif

      Are you feeling warm? Are you feeling fuzzy? Well get ready to! (And then go see a doctor because those things aren't normal D:)

      TOP! TOP HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! The first time we ever played together, I said to someone later, "Top reminds me of candy," And you do! You're so jolly and happy and sweet - you're candy, Top! Metaphorically of course - or....or literally?? (...I've got to stop telling bad jokes!)

      But for reals - you're actually one of the nicest people I know and your kindness knows no limits. Everything you do, you attack with this positive attitude that, frankly, inspires me to do the same. :] Keep being wonderful, Top, and know that every time I see your post or see your name in Mumble, it puts a huge grin on my face! You're fantastic!

      Hey man thanks for kind words. I've always enjoyed talking to you and seeing the things you say and, at times, argue about in chat. You have great passion for the things you do and I wish I had that.

      Although I don't really say much during RT Radio, I like seeing everyone's interactions and contributing the small bits that I do. Thank you for being there, like everyone on the site, for listening to what I gotta say and when I need to vent.

      You are an exceptional person and, like you, can't wait to meet in person. Hope you are having a lovely day. smiley12.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley0.gif

      You have such a kind heart. I love hearing your thoughts on things and all about the cool things you do with the being a scientist thing and the music stuff and all of it. You are also an outstanding member of our Spread the Love admin staff. When you send me Christmas cards and such, they never fail to make me smile. I cannot express how damn excited I am to meet you at RTX this year, man.
      Spread the love with Warm Fuzzies of your own today!

      Dear Mr. Topham,

      Thank you for accepting me into your RTX shenanigans, and allowing me to be a part of a wild journey that is RTX. The few times we have talked, have been interesting. From that D&D conversation the other day, to the random skype comments. I can tell that you're a pretty cool dude. I hope to have more awesome conversations with you in the future, and get to know you better before RTX comes around.

      Sincerely,

      Javi (:

      Decided to write you a warm fuzzies letter cuz I'm random like that, but seriously thank you, for letting me join in on y'alls RTX shenanigans.

    Hey!


    Unfortunately I am not the best at drawing, and arting in that fashion. There are plenty of people around here who are great at that kind of thing! People like Raf, OneBlueWolf, Lambency, Scheree, SailorGirl81, Myshu, Gaelfox, NaomiC and a few others are around here, I'd also recommend exploring the scary world of tumblr where there are quite a significant concentration of other community artists.


    Have an excellent day!
