    Deathstars Play The Tunnels

    Don't suppose anyone knows if it'll be possible to get tickets on the door for this?

    Fucking Sony mobile phones!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just got a new sony ericsson, it's being a pain currently as the file transfer program doesn't recognise the phone as being connected (when it is, via the usb cable) even though the synchronisation program does recognise it as being connected. Phone doesn't turn up as removable media either. Means I can't set Wolf Eyes as my ringtone My last sony ericsson phone was great though, withstood obscene amounts of abuse, and the actual new phone is great too, just the connection software :\

    Which thumb?

    My left thumb occasionally tries, but is always harshly overruled by the mighty right thumb.

    Summer Songs

    Lately, I've been finding cds by 'You Say Party! We Say Die!', 'The Faint' and '!!!' to be good summer listening, plus there's something about playing 'Hunted by a Freak' or 'Killing All the Flies' by Mogwai in the car on a sunny day which is just awesome.
  5. Eurosports not available on freeview, you can get it if you pay for the freeview extra option, but that's pretty much pointless for whta you get. There's been pretty much no media coverage either, until the other day after they had made it to the semi finals. It would be cool to see Scotland win, but I'd miss it anyway as I'm working later.

    japanese music

    Ah, most of my favourite ones have been mentioned, but Envy, Mono and Guitar Wolf are all awesome. Try Boris out too, either doom or rock depending on what album you listen to. YMCK are a poppy nintendo 8bit sound type Japanese band who are pretty good too. I've always wanted to find an online broadcast of a Japanese rock radio station, but never had any luck finding anything - can anyone else help with this?

    Worst Places to Live in Britain

    haha, I lived there in my high school years, it was always easy to walk around at 3am in the morning with the lovely orange glow lighting your way wherever you went. The complimentary asthma was nice too, shame it dissapeared when I moved here for uni Not getting why so many are saying Falkirk and Stirling are so bad though, Stirling is one of the most picturesque places you could hope to stay in. I've lived in both places, and spent a summer working as a postie in both the raploch and camelon (tatty junkie filled place at the edge of Falkirk, although the dealer I had to deliver lots of signature requiring court orders to was fairly friendly) and even though they're pretty much considered the worst areas in either town they're nowhere near as bad as other places I've been. Actually, the raploch is relatively nice, especially compared with the schemes on the way down to cornton in Stirling. My only real gripe with both towns would be the relatively dull nightlives of both places (too small), but the ease of travel to Glasgow or Edinburgh made up for it. A weird thing was, when I first moved up here, I thought "there's hardly any neds in Aberdeen" as opposed to "there's pure dead hunners eh neds back hame man". Find it hard to comprehend why anyone would consider Aberdeen one of the worst places to stay though, the only thing you could say is that it's a bit isolated, and sometimes has lulls in good bands playing, but that's nothing really. Cumbernauld is one of the dumpiest places I know of, I have a couple of friends who live there, one had taken a work van home, which was a brand new transit flatbed pickup thing, and it got fireballed within a couple of hours of being parked in his street ( he was allowed to take the van home, and never got in bother for it btw) That and Birmingham, used to have to go there a lot for national team training and apart from the traffic system, highlights of visits included seeing some guy pull a gun on someone then batter him in the face with it in the street as we were waiting for the lights to change

    haha, I was testing things in an oil bath at 120c today at work, whilst wearing a labcoat on over my normal clothes, you have my sympathy!

    What Cd's have you been buying recently?

    I got Cult of Luna's Somewhere Along the Highway, as well as Let Us Prey by Electric Wizard recently, can go on a proper cd splurge when I get paid at the end of the month. Was pretty disappointed with Somewhere Along the Highway though, didn't stand up to Salvation at all

    Transformers movie pictures!

    The trailer was briefly leaked on youtube earlier today but they shut it down really quickly, I tried loading it up to show a mate earlier and he thought I was taking the mick as it had already been taken down by then Was cool though

    Getting Healthy!

    I've been trying to become a lot healthier, I managed a lot of leg strengthening recently, as I knew I had a minor knee surgery coming up, which is done now. Now I just need to wait for it to be rested/healthy enough for exercise, I put on a bit of weight with recent exam/honours project stress related chocholate munchfests. Managed to swap chocholate and crisps for bananas, oranges, pineapples, need to get my mountain bike out more when my knee heals fully, although I only ever take it down the beach (mostly due to buses trying to murder me whenever I venture onto the roads here)
