I'm pretty bored right now so tell me some things about some stuff
gonna look into printing etc at the weekend.
Tell us yr plans, Jordan_229_2
are you able to provide a link to the signings; I wouldn't mind hearing them?
I hope it is.
you're just my Northern bit on the side.
that sounds exciting
what do they sound liek?
its Haiku Salut (Derby) and Hopeless Local Marching Band (Japan).
they have a similar sound, though the latter has really developed. if i were to do a sounds like list; Múm, 65daysofstatic, Efterklang, Worlds End Girlfriend (i'll be doing a proper press release and all that soon).
i have decided it'll be a 4 track CD for £2. £1 postage or free with an SAE. i might soundcloud a track from each. i'm quite excited.
If you want some artwork doing drop me a line.
ace, i'd be well up for that
put me down for one!
Haiku Salut are great. Gonna go see them in Norwich in a couple of months I reckon
I totally fancy the one with curly hair from Haiku Salut. I know you do too, don't lie. Can I have her number please?
and she is married to another of the band.
she is utterly lovely though, as are the other two
They're good. Good name too, like that.
The little girl had been here earlier and had forgotten to bring a bag. They didn't find it but I appreciated the effort.
I hope you don't.
She must have come then I supposeand now it's scattered to the winds.
gonna drink beer in approximately 1hr20mins.
I've got like three beers in at home but I've got no money so I feel like I should save them for the weekend...
Now I'm gonna turn my computer off and go to the park. In ALL of your faces.
I've got no work to do, I'm so bored. I really want it to be Friday, and for me to not have to wait until next Thursday to get paid, and stuff.
the office temperature has hit 25 degress, I've lost all motivation to do any work and will probably look for a new job, even though I've been here less than 3 months.
The thermometer readout is currently 30.6. It's hell in here.
don't put up with that shit.
(sorry not meaning to be rude... it is kinda personal and not the sort of thing I wish to share on the internet but it made my day anyway)
though my mum's been fucked about by housing benefit people for ages and got a letter yesterday telling her that it is FINALLY all sorted out, so that's good too
I'm in a good mood today, probably because yesterday was my birthday and I am determined to make this a good year, but I've still got a load to worry about (LOL MIDDLE CLASS WORRIES). I have uni work to do, it's overdue, the supervisor doesn't like me anyway, and yet I just can't sit down and make myself do it. I've no idea why, it's really odd.
Think I might go and talk to my director of studies about it, this can't go on.
Might go down to park and have a look.
Can't wait to get my life back. I probably won't though because I've spent the last 2 hours making a killer Spotify playlist for a chum instead of working.
If it's something boring then make something up plz.
It's been so long I can't tell whether that's boring or not. It is isn't it.
i'm at work.
i went to the beach at lunchtime - it was lovely.
earlier on the girl and I took the car into the garage to get a new cam-belt (?) fitted.
it's going to cost us loads of money
I too am planning on making an animated music video. I am currently in the stage of having it in my head and thinking about writing it down. I have got as far as saying it out loud, which was successful
i don't know why i thought this was a good idea... hang on yes i do.
so the other day someone posted this tumblr http://mrdiv.tumblr.com/ - and i thought, that looks cool and then i looked up his showreel http://vimeo.com/36429790 and was all like WOW - that is amazing - I want to make stuff like that as I've been in a bit of a rut with my own stuff recently.
Then I went home and realized that I had a copy of aftereffects on my computer so thought i'd mess around with that a bit.
Then I went to see adam buxton's bug show in brighton and he played loads of cool music vids including this
and I was like - that is amazing, so the idea was taking form a bit.
So then I thought - I'll need a song to make a vid with - I'll just make something nice and simple and short
so then I made this
which is a bit longer and more complex than I intended ( i've since refined it a little.)
and now i've been pissing around at work with photoshop filters to try and build up some kind of visual language that i could use in the animation - even though i have no idea really how to use aftereffects ( i reckon it will be ok tho - even if it does take a long long time).
So far I have come up with something looking a bit like this - but obviously everything will be moving
that would be like a still or something
I will have a look when I get home though, sounds good man
Good tune and I really like the look of the visuals, looking forward to seeing it
And sub-lists. Today has been a planning day. Tomorrow will be a doing day. I want to go for a run but it's too hot. I'll do it tomorrow when it's to be less sunny here.
Going to meet meow and chintzy shortly for nachos and prosecco. And Pond, and maybe Oberhofer, if the set-times at the two venues permit. Going to beg a couple of people to give me a job, or at least some inspiration. Standard Tuesday.
Vine- can you fake a faint and get sent home. Preferably with a small *concussion* which means you must recover in a park tomorrow?
Jordan- Happy birthday! Tell me more about your label please.
Guarantee that everyone in the office reckons I did it to go sunbathe.
My Scottishness will be my saving grace, since they'll know I can't possibly have been in direct sunlight because I won't be lobster pink on returning to work.
You should get an ice-lolly.
I'm about to pop to the corner shop to restock my irn bru supply. Pretty sure I'm going to cone back with a magnum and maybe a mini milk.
We're a department of two so no, I can't go home but at least she's not sat there telling me to open the post that's sat on my desk. Planning on throwing a sicky a week on Friday anyway. I get paid on Thursday and I'm going to a wedding on Saturday so I need to get a haircut and buy a shirt and stuff and really don't have any other time to do it so work can kiss my hairy arse. At least I've got my plus one secured for it now though, I was going to have to take my mate for a minute there
Quiet weekend at mine totally sealed the deal. As if that wasn't enough, I took her to see Avengers Assemble and she's a total Marvel fangirl so she was pretty much creaming her knickers over that shit. It's a pretty good film like but she was INTO it.
THe DiServerse is all <3-ed up <3 :D
She's got it into her head that it would be fun to try and get my ex to block me on Facebook by totally spamming my page and tagging me in stuff. It is quite funny but I do feel a little bit bad coz aside from the fact that we still get along, my ex always got a bit jealous when we were together and i spoke to new girl, and the only reason I've got a plus one for this wedding is coz my ex was invited :-/ Ha, never mind
You're going to go and spy on me now aren't you...
i'll probably jag you at a later date :) x
I have loads of admin experience, am very polite and people like me. Relaively handsome, not enough to be a model though.
maybe my job would be more bearable if a) it wasn't finance and b) people in my team actually spoke to me
Finance is bollocks anyway. I had an interview with a finance place once and the guy wasn't really paying attention all the way through and at the end he was like 'there's just one problem, you're wearing brown shoes and your hair is quite long'. They rang me back the next day and asked me if I would do the interview again after having a haircut and wearing black shoes and I was like lol no
finance is for squares (sorry Jordan). I feel a bit out of place here. Working for a uni is great, just not in this particular. And why is the finance area hotter than the rest of the building? God clearly doesn't like our sort.
should've punched him in his face. right in his cunty face.
or was that an actual question...if so, probably a bullet you could have dodged.
although it is quite obvious. I should have taken the bitch to a tribunal.
Been strolling around campus in a daze it's so hot.
I got a funny look from a girl because I was checking her bike out and she must've thought I was checking her out. It was a NICE bike, though.
My boss says 'Right, I'm off - see you tomorrow' too early EVERY DAY. She says it whilst she's at her desk, then there's 10-15 seconds of awkwardness whilst she finishes up and walks to the door. PEOPLE WHO.
The boss thing, not the girl thing. Will you buy me an ice cream and wait outside my house for me with it please? I'll be there in less than two hours.
Two hours, fuck.
I'm going to have pints in the sun now.
I looked for you and YOU WEREN'T THERE
'bye see you tomorrow' TO ME before I'd even got up and said I was going. AWKWARD CHEEK.
People do that at my work too! (always females). I've been thinking about making it into a PEOPLE WHO for ages! I refuse to say bye to them now unless they are physically walking out of the door. Might seem a bit rude but I'm not saying bye if you're going to linger there for 2 minutes. I, of this second, call it a lie bye.
My boss even started saying bye to me as I was shutting down my comp even though she sat right next to me (I've since moved desk) and could see I was still in my chair and would be there for at least a minute while put my coat on etc. Ridiculous.
It's bugged me for ages. To the point where sometimes I just stare at her angrily whilst she walks all the way past me and out of the door at the point she SHOULD so be saying 'bye' to everyone.
its absolute torture
it's such a nice day outside I can't not
11 onwards is fine, though.
i thought it was about 2
It's lovely, it's a ten minute walk from my house and they have a great balcony where I eat lunch that overlooks a massive wood (steady now). I bought the new Actress, Beach House and Benjamin Damage/Doc Daneeka albums today and I'm going to listen to them later. Today is a good day.
+ had 11 hours sleep last night
+ fucking bossed an exam
+ saw a playground scrap on my walk home
+ drinking in my room all day
ok so i want to sleep, got an awful headache and just took a cold shower, but eurovision semi finals are on soon. so im gonna take a painkiller and stay awake to watch jedward and the rest. so brave
Fuck the Eurovision balls, go to bed
*trigger warning: moaning*
Feel I can't produce or do anything of any standard, not sure why. Been going on for a while. I sent my supervisor an email to apologise for not handing in any work this week as every time I did do something it was massively not up to scratch, and also I'm getting distracted at the slightest little thing, be it through
internet procrastination or something else.
The supervisor is going to think I'm making excuses but it's a very genuine feeling- having no confidence in my own talents and completely destroying any text I try to write about, plus a feeling of utter inertia and null-ness.
sorry, DiS. Shouldn't take this out on here really.
you might be better off handing it in anyway even if you think it's not up to scratch. Mainly because a) it might not be as bad as you think and b) your tutor might be able to give you some pointers as to where you're going wrong (I'm assuming here this is work that doesn't count towards your degree - otherwise have a word with your tutor first about the problems you're having rather than handing it in).
I think I generally just need to get off the net. It doesn't count toward my degree, but I might have a word with her nonetheless; this can't go on.
Thinking back I'm actually quite glad there wasn't easy access to the internet when I was at uni, otherwise I'm sure I'd have got nothing done, either.
where it deletes all your social networking accounts
was my timesink for the first couple of years
Might need to be off tomorrow as well.
- I was in work
- the train to work was 20 odd minutes late (broken down freight train)
- the train home was over an hour late (level crossing failure)
Which is strange considering the time. No + and -, just words about things. This shit's going to run and run, I can feel it.
