How's it going?
I don't think I'm going to cut the grass today even though it's great fun as far as chores go.
Get the grass cut! :)
Quite enjoy cutting the grass with a nice cold beer.
Gonna nip out to the shops and get something to eat and the papers. Might go into town later, might not
I've just returned to tachebam and its made me feel like a manly man, man!
I'm off into town later (or what qualifies as town for this quaint provincial) for a couple of beers with some mates, it's sunny here in n'tonshire.
Oh I can't wait to get this 52' tele http://www.tdpri.com/telephoto/data/517/medium/Tele_52ri_002Axt.jpg I'm not too old to make music am I?
Get playing, get recording and post them here, always enjoy your records!!
i'm at work. i WISH i could be cutting grass
Perhaps this isn't the right question for you as I don't believe you work a normal job but what's your advice for fitting in time to make music amongst the tedium of real life and the desire to just dirnk beer and shoot nazizombies?
i do something called the pomodoro technique. have been forcing myself to get up at 7am and do blocks of 25 minute activities with 5 mins break between em.
So i get up at 7 and go:
25 mins french lesson
5 mins break
25 mins gym stuff
5 mins break
25 mins music making/production
5 mins break
25 mins learning to do the beginner python coding course
5 mins break
which takes me to 9.30. Then shower and breakfast, then to work for 11.
If i'm working 10-6, i do the same except knock one of the blocks out so i can stll get to work on time.
but if i need to get in for 10 i just do four (so would probably lose the python one)
I bet you are at your peak interest/enthusiasm in the first half hour or so.
you get into your morning and you've already felt like you've done something that makes you happy before work. so much easier than trying to force yourself to think after you get back home
I'm going to steal this technique when I take some time off to write my next batch of tunes, thanks a million x
oh and enjoy your weekend :)
Not knocking it, i could sure use a routine, but...
so this morning i spent the entire 25 mins A/Bing bass modelling to put my baritone through, tomorrow i'll play in the bassline, and monday morning i'll comp the takes.
It sounds laborious but oddly i work faster than doing 10 hour blocks where i'm fatigued and enraged by the whole song.
that's admirable, doubt if i could ever make it work though
until the baby wakes up. I'm like THIS guy
took my car for MOT which it has passed!!! So proud of it! Got some pressies for my mum's birthday and also bought some books.
Gonna lock myself away for the whole weekend now cos i've got loads of work to do
and over the year we have to compile evidence of how were progressing etc so I've done it basically but i have to present it next week so I'm faffing about and panicking tbh
Back lawn looks like a wildlife documentary
Bit windy so keeps blowing my pages over, bit annoying. Making slow progress but it's ok
Join me in spirit!
I made a real twat of myself last night but, you know what, it was fun
beers now. Then pizza. Then sleep
In Blackburn with wor lass, buying a car. Waiting to get in and have her drive me back to Scotland.
everything is either agitating or annoying me. :)
niggas call me YOUNG BLACK SOCRATES
think i'm gonna need to start carrying ID to buy beer again, look like antpoc right now.
one of those things I've missed out on having lived in flats forever.
asked my mum for a lawnmower recommendation as she has like 3 for some reason, she looked one up on argos and then sent me a photo of the website. obviously hasn't grasped the idea of sending links 😅
play a gig in Brooklyn this evening. Looking forward to it a lot.
Been a pretty top weekend so far. Spent last night at a talk in the NHM about dinosaur sex, then went to dinner with the speaker afterwards. Now back home visiting parents whilst helping/overseeing them demolish their old shed. Mum managed to stand on a nail and is now worried about getting tetanus. Headed off to Brighton later for a birthday pub gathering which should be pretty blissful.
I only went to bed at like 8 this morning but I don't feel *too* bad really. Just pretty tired and thirsty and craving junk food. But not in pain or anything.
Just staying in today and tonight so that I'm all ready for tomorrow which is NORWAY DAY!!!!!! There's some stuff happening in Southwark Park in the day so I'm going there, and then apparently there's a Norwegian pub in Hackney and they're having a big party in the evening. Should be fun!
Think I'm gonna stay in tonight as well, not because I was out till 8am right enough, just cos
Hope they'll have some celebratory offers on tomorrow then!
everything looks HD. I'm not sure I like it. Definitely don't like how they make my face look :(
I'm tryna lick that clit while i'm lookin up at you
This'll be the first weekend in fucking ages that I've stayed in both nights. Well, apart from the fact I'm out now.
JME's album is good though
