I've never driven a car, I'm not sure there is much point in Bristol

If you do shift work or are bank staff in an organisation like the NHS then it's almost essential as the bus service is so appalling.

I cycle: it takes me 8 minutes to get to work and I live just under 2 miles away from it.

Find an industrial/office estate which has car parks that you can drive around in. But you should at least be insured as the police wont be happy if they arrive to find you in it uninsured.

I've never driven a car, I'm not sure there is much point in Bristol, but just be confident with it.  Two Thumbs

Do you think it might happen this time? I guess if it is started now, when the economy is on a small increase, then it has a chance of being completed. They had better sort out the infrastructure that serves it though, although evening events wont suffer as badly from the traffic.

121  General / The Forum / Re: Watch producers make a tune in ten minutes on: January 16, 2014, 11:32:39
I think the fastest I have ever made a track was about 40 minutes, including finding a sample and arranging the beat. It tokk extra time to record vocals and mix it, but the basic beat and sample cuts were done very quickly.

http://www.discogs.com/Stealth-MC-Back-To-The-Mothership/release/1314313 the lead track on this, but there is no audio of it on the net that I can find.
122  General / The Forum / Re: Watch producers make a tune in ten minutes on: January 16, 2014, 10:27:44
I've not watched this, but I'm sure it isn't that hard to make a track in ten minutes using presets or ready made ones, but I don't make music like that, I like to take time to craft the presets for the track I'm working on, which can take more than 10 minutes just for one.

The Subway up by me in Knowle, in Broadwalk, has nobody hanging around generally.

When I was growing up in Worle in Weston, one of the places kids would hang out, aside to the parks, was outside a chip shop. I don't think fast food is to blame, it is just an area with lots of people coming and going, so you aren't shooed away like you might be outside someone's house.

I thought this was a very nice looking game, with an interesting storyline, but not as amazing as many reviews painted it. It is pretty much a zombie shooter with some nice touches.

I prefer the Tal Elek7ro, the interface is better to work with.

Battery is something I have been using since Battery 1, so about 10 years now. I have a version of Ableton, but don't really use it.

I have a Lexicon Alex which I use often, otherwise I have been using Cubase's built in ones - Reverance and Roomworks recently. I also use the Realverb plug in on UAD.

Most filtering is done on the synths, but I do have a UAD Moog plug in which is very good, but I mainly use that for its gain properties as it works well over drums. I sometimes use the low pass filter on the Cambridge EQ too.

Subway is the cause of violence.

http://www.hijackbristol.co.uk/board/the-forum/shooting-on-stapleton-rd/msg1101114/#msg1101114

gun crime has reached Bristol and in the middle of the day too.

Bout 15 years ago there were 12 shootings (or more) in a 3 month period in St Pauls, its all alot more chilled now dont panic you will be fine. Although if i was you i would be more worried about the gangs of Somalies hanging around Staps with machetes down there pants than this random shooting.  Two Thumbs

I think a lot of the trouble in Easton now is due to the Somalies and the Jamaicans scrapping. Every time I go on my lunch break I see big groups of youngers on either side of the road, sometimes it's all cool but sometimes there's clearly tension in the air. More recently I've noticed several instances of police riot vans at the scene talking to kids, and have heard reports of daytime street-fighting. It has coincided with the new Subway by Lebecqs, but I'm not sure whether thats really anything to do with it or not.
It's not exactly hard evidnce but I've definitely noticed an increase in tension recently

Nothing angers up a yoots blood like a footlong steak and cheese with mayo and pickles.

 Laugh

How could a sandwich shop be in any way related?


Are you serious? Fast-food outlets are almost always hanging out places for scally yoots...

Quote
One trader of a shop near the scene of the shooting, who didn't want to be named, said: "We feel very bad. It's not safe, this area.

"There are fights here every day and the police don't sort it out. A lot of teenage boys come to the Subway."

I assumed everyone knew this - it's one of the Unquestionable Truths: Teenage kids will hang around doing fuck all by US multinational fast food outlets
