Hi i'm working and bored please talk to me i have nothing else to do.
instead of Sunday Morning. What a strange world that would be.
i'm always underwhelmed. Dunno if VU were before then but i'm guessing so
do you only watch colour films as well?
watched citizen kane yesterday and got bored.
."LETS LOOK OUT THE WINDOW!". OKAY!
bit of trivia i found out today: Henry Flynt was in the velvet underground for like 6 shows but lou reed got really pissed off with him for playing too hillbilly-like.
also you probably have accidentally thro use in soundtracks/being played out of boomboxes by children on the street; stuff like that.
what ambient music is good in 2k11
well first i'd say Tim Hecker's Ravedeath, 1972. You might have heard this/of this but it's pretty great so check there first.
The other big guy's who've got a new record out are Deaf Centre. Owl Splinters is all big haunting cinematic pieces if that's your bag.
There's a William Basinski reissue of A Red Score in Tile, which I heard a while ago and remember being well good out now.
Konx-Om-Pax's Light In Extension is great. Dolphins into the Future's Sea-faring Isolation reissue for kosmische, Emeralds-esque stufff, Cezary Gapik Contrast I for weird dark droney stuff,
for kinda nice pastoral stuff, check Clem Leek's Holly Lane, Will Bolton's Time Lapse, Kyo Ichinose's Earthrise 2064 and me:mo's Parking Scene...
as kinda folkier/ambient stuff goes i'm a bit fan of Natural Snow Buildings and Black Eagle Child. Both have got new records out, Waves of the Random Sea and Lobelia respectively.
also from October last year, I've been getting back into Koen Holtkamp
's Gravity / Bees which is just the *most* beautiful record.
idk, hope you find something there you like.
(*something about arsenal and what i'm having for lunch)
i was hoping to catch you on the social board cos i didnt wanna make a thread. This is good.
that's what i've done with the past hour of my life
rubbish name though. If it's cutesy or something ahm oot.
here's an idea: how about you write my presentation for me while i go to the pub. it's about monologue, dialogue and performance in four irish plays. have it done by tomorrow morning, cheers
brian friel, martin mcdonagh, frank mcguinness and beckett
i have written half a paragraph so far
So bored that today I actually phoned my bank to sort out a long standing issue. Success.
I'm meant to be revising. I have exams on Friday that, if I pass, will give me something like a 15% payrise, and yet I can't bring myself to open a book. I did a two-day refresher course, and didn't pass any of my mock law tests, so I know I have to do the work, yet I'm sat here fucking around, and I'm going to go to the pub in a bit. What the fuck is wrong with me? What the fuck am I going to do?
my advice is to detach all emotions, aspirations and expectations from real life. That way you can't lose, no matter what the inevitable outcome.
It's not just about the money, it's the fact that I've spent 18 months using these exam as my marker for when I'm going to move on from this job and do something better.
And yet I just procrastinate more and more.
I've thought about it, and my solution is that you find the nearest BDSM club, find a dominatrix and tell her that you are allocating yourself certain times per day to work on this test, and should you not work during these times, or not working hard enough, she is there and allowed to administer any form of torture she sees fit. This would definitely work without question.
Just after I'd sprayed myself with aftershave. Now I'm sat in my living room smelling like a tart's handbag. I should probably take this as a sign to revise.
My saved games been deleted.
First Egypt, Christchurch and Libya, and now this? There's just so much suffering in the world....
The People's Supermarket. Highlight of the night.
woke up late, sorted photos, went to waitrose via a walk in the park, came back had olives and sun dried tomatos and m&ms and am now editing by the radiator :)
a day is what you make it!
I've called the police
dunno what to do now. Might kill some bears
sometimes takes ages for a train to come though, but it's a laugh.
I did that to get the trophy, but it's not THAT fun.
I wanna go on multiplayer, but it turns out it RDR doesn't work on a wireless connection :/
