and it's making my sofa vibrate LOADS. Should I be worried? My flat isn't feeling very stable.
should've checked that out before you moved there, eh?
it's raining too. The whole thing is probably going to collapse around me.
you can detune your sofa from the frequency of the wahing machine spin by adding a mass on a spring to the sofa.
Unless the sofa is wobbling as a result of the floor wobbling... in which case you need to do that to the floor!
I think it's the cheap shitty laminate flooring :(
engineering has no solution for you then
i hate it when that happens
oh dear. That sounds really tragic! I might cry.
i am kinda making one.
and I'll be without work for most of the summer.
So hopefully I should manage to record a whole album of stuff.
I'm also trying to sing, I have a tune called "100 takes" because I'm sure it'll take 100 takes to get the vocals down in tune.
I seem to remember it took Embrace about 14-odd takes on one of their tracks (as relayed by Darren Hefner).
Of course, Embrace aren't ever in tune so maybe you're right.
I only ever like to take one vocal take. I hate to have to listen back and try to correct things. I prefer the mad live sound.
sitting on it
anyway, it's finished now.
clearly, I'm no lady.
That reminds me - take clothes out of the machine! Thanks
Jean was always a pro-active person.
is a first floor flat only. Their washing machine shares a wall with my bedroom. The inhabitants of the flat are nocturnal. My bedroom often resemples a scene from the exorcist.
Especially when they put the washing machine on.
Sheesh, that is a lot.
But what does it all mean, Basil?
Mine is old, though, so probably not. The 'these days' comment was suggestive of the ones made these days, not that all washing machines in existence have gradually got faster as time's gone one.
i_zimbra would have made the correct inferences.
My mum's flat is the same. Whole house shakes like a bugger and it hasn't fallen down in 20 years.
And a couple of times she's done one of those washes where she's left the drum full of water so the clothes don't get creased or something...and then forgotten to do the rinse cycle and just flooded the kitchen! RAWK!
i have to go to the laundrette. it's not like in Eastenders :-(
shop staffed by a woman who by all rights should be dead from heart complications right now.
A lasy would have gotten up off the sofa immediately.
