Don't install disk 2 apparently.

Or use the garages for the time being.

According to recent news that is.

Also: I miss Venue magazine  Cry

Don't you mean you miss how it used to be 6 years ago, before it turned into utter tosswipe.

How it used to be 13 years ago.  LIGHTAH!

It took a turn for the worst around the beginning of the millenium, when it tried to be Bristol's Time Out and the usefulness dropped considerably.

now imagine a tiger ... with filthy dreadlock dripping in beeswax sticking out of it's mouth

What a lovely thought. Especially if it was Newton Faulkner.

Sounds positive.  Smiley

It does look like RDR in parts which was quite playable and had a good plot.
356  General / The Forum / Re: No more Leopard print mumble trousers at Chessington. on: September 25, 2013, 12:01:08
You're right, it might lead to ketamine poisoning for the tiger.
357  General / The Forum / Re: Brisfest on: September 25, 2013, 11:59:16
I've no idea. I only saw one of my friends mention it, but didn't see a single bit of promotion for it this year. I thought it wasn't going ahead as there is usually a lot of talk about it here and fundraising etc for it over the year.
358  General / The Forum / Re: No more Leopard print mumble trousers at Chessington. on: September 25, 2013, 11:55:50
yeah. a smelly dreadlocked hippie wearing a skanky zebra onezie with no shoes is upsetting the tigers. that are locked up in a dingey cage. 5 miles west of Croydon.

despicable.

Can the hippie be put into the same cage as the tigers?
359  General / The Forum / Re: Brisfest on: September 25, 2013, 10:15:35
there was hardly anyone there

I didn't see any promo for it this year. I expect it was on FB, but I don't recall any threads about here until this one a couple of days before the weekend.

GTA 4 was boring IMO.


 Script

I'm in no rush to get GTA 5, although I don't think it will be anything like as dour as GTA 4 and its lacklustre 'hero'. I've not seen much about it, but it seems that some elements of Red Dead Redemption have been incorporated and there is a much larger wilderness to explore. I hope it has the humour that Vice City had and none of the boring girlfriend shit that 4 had. 

Next on my horizon is 'The last of us', which looks like a good mixture of action and plot.

What was not so well known was that many of the shocking stories found in the tabloid press were in fact planted there by publicist Max Clifford - whom DMA had hired to promote the title.


It cant be a coincidence that this event has happened just before the release of GTA 5.

50,000 have signed up to it, now only another 80 million to convince it is a good idea.

Whilst I acknowledge my contract pays for my phone, I've never bought one and I don't lust after the latest model so this idea doesn't work for me and I doubt it does for a majority of phone users.

There is more than one way to spell or translate it, as with most Arabic. That is essentially the dutch way.

That is all well and good, but none of the articles cited under the first entry refer to it; not quite sure how those can be facts.

How is the Giff Gaff reception? I presume it piggybacks on whatever is the nearest, strongest signal, so should always be good? I'm thinking of going that way and keeping the phone I have; I don't need a new one.

I doubt it will match the original two, but it doesn't look awful like the Total Recall remake does. Robocop was the first 18 film I went out of my way to watch (on video): I was 11.

Yes, I wouldn't be talking science shit, it would be about chicks and Eastenders - "I miss Pat Butcher, don't you Steve?"

When did Pat leave?

If you are recording just your voice in an untreated room then I would suggest a dynamic cardioid mic like the SM58 as bloke has mentioned.

Some form of audio interface would be a good purchase, nothing fancy, just something with a combined jack/xlr input and some means of adjusting the gain.

Something like this

And whats a community payback order for minor cannabis offences if its not national service?

Are those who are doing community payback expected to fight overseas? Or do, as the name suggests, a bit of community payback by tidying up. If you want to apply the term 'national service' to anything that benefits the country, paying tax could be seen as that, but that isn't the point of the discussion, we are discussing the recognised concept of national service/conscription.

That comes in time..

I know an Iranian ex pat who does go back very occaisionally. As a tourist, I've no idea what it would be like to go; possibly not an ideal location, but it would be good to see the origins of the modern civilised world and language (what is left that is, following war). Bring back Persia.
