I am a lefty, but not for everything. I just bought a lefty guitar and I write left handed, but I use a knife, scissors, throw, clean my teeth, play tennis and various other things right handed. I use a mouse at work with my right hand (on windows) but use my left at home (on my mac). I'm not totally ambidextrous and still consider myself as left handed, but I can do a lot with both hands.

same as digital village, changed to dv247.com, they'll selling off the shelving in a few weeks or months

DV has been DV247 for years. The operating name won't have changed, the business was called White Rabbit Records before their 'collapse'. There is something rotten about that one though.

As for Chemical, there website doesn't seem to have changed in the last week and I think the name changed from Chemical Records to just Chemical some time ago.

All the best Dave, but this venture sounds like it is working the wrong way around. They should be supplying studio time and re-couping costs from sales. What deal have you in place, if any? Will you own the publishing etc? What deal are you getting on sales? Whilst the discount sounds good, is it because the studio is already struggling and are using this as a lure to get you in? I'm not trying to piss on your chips, just wondering what is promised once you have raised the money and what has been agreed in contract terms. I'm no expert, but I would suggest you consult an expert about this: Musicians Union offer free legal advice to members, otherwise a musical lawyer or well versed music agent.

Second post in this thread is very good:

I initially mistook the storm for a nightmare. I had earplugs in so I only got woken by the flashes of light and I must have dozed off in between them. There was one flash and I thought nothing of it. Next flash and the curtains were open. Then another flash and my girlfriend was suddenly standing motionless by the window. I was fully expecting her to be covered in blood or something.

372  General / The Forum / Re: What type of butter does everyone use? on: July 22, 2013, 14:07:46
for what?

This is a fair question.

Assuming we're talking about food, Flora Light for everyday shizzle and baking healthy cakes. Proper butter once in a blue moon as a treat, or when making naughty cakes. Evil

Healthy? Read that and see if you can conclude which is healthier.  Lips Sealed

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jan/23/margarine-butter-health-wars

Well, as the article says, Flora has not been made with hydrogenated fat since 1994. Technically you can't actually buy 'margarine' in the UK any more and you haven't been able to for some time, if you define it as a spread which contains hydrogenated fats. But I agree that the fact a war on butter happened in the first place is worth questioning - I just don't think spreads are as bad for you as they used to be.

It is this bit I was alluding to:

Quote
Butter and fat spreads between them make up just one-eighth of our total fat intake. In the UK, the biggest source of fats overall and of saturated fat in particular is meat, particularly highly processed meat products such as sausages and pies. Cereal products including biscuits, cakes and breads are the next biggest sources of fat, then milk products. Butter and fats spreads come after that, which begs the question why they became the frontline in the war on saturated fat in the first place. Potato snacks and crisps account for about the same amount of fat, and it is the shift to an overwhelmingly industrial fast-food diet that really needs to be addressed.


Basically its not worth worrying about, enjoy what you want and don't get conned into:

Completely agree, story was up there with the first one. Combat served the purpose I suppose but wasn't anything special

This is encouraging because Bioshock 2 was rubbish. The first one is a classic.

The pay for the Technician is depressingly low. I would consider this as I could do the job, but I don't think I could take a £4k pay cut to work longer hours in a more technically demanding role, that would seem like a backward step. Shame because I think the work environment could be rewarding, but rewarding doesn't pay my rent.

Finished Walking Dead; pretty mediocre really IMO. Time to get back on to Deadly Premonition and its Lynchian weirdness.

such an odd game.

Deadly Premonition I presume? Yes it is very odd. A car that only does the speed limit, hours when you can't do anything. That massive dog at night. The weirdness of the zombie/ghosts: don't want to dieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

It is clunky but there is a level of intrigue that isn't present in other detective type games like LA Noir (which was a disappointment) and Heavy Rain (another game that didn't meet the expectations I had).

393  General / The Forum / Re: Bristol, Give Me a Signal... on: July 09, 2013, 15:37:36

Not really interested in defending the article but is it really compulsory that to praise bristol you must a) mention every single thing that happens here and b) show that you've given equal consideration to dry suburbia as you do to Stoke's Croft? Obviously most people in their twenties are going to feel more passionate about SC than they are about Knowle.

Oceana etc. you can find in any city in the UK, seems pretty natural to me that she concentrates on what makes Bristol unique.

No it doesn't have to take into account all the suburbs, but Stokes Croft has never been an appealing place for me, nor is it particularly cool place. It is frequently the subject of articles on Bristol though and the city has much more to offer than it. All cities are unique, Bristol has some lovely spots in the outlying areas which are easily overlooked if you think Glos Road is the be all and end all of the city and it is disapointing to read an article that focusses on a tiny part and clearly misses some of the very important aspects that make Bristol a good place to live: The Harbour Festival, The Carnival, Ashton Court/Brisfest, The Balloon Fiesta as I mentioned, the water front (not Oceana obviously) The Thekla, all the lovely parks dotted around the place. All these make Bristol a great place to live, plus it has a good variety of nightlife and if you like graffiti, there's plenty of that too.

I made no mention of it being compulsary to mention the whole city but if you are writing an article about a city, it might worth bearing in mind that it is bigger than a handful of streets.

This is clearly just my opinion.  Smiley

It is a positive article, I just resent being lumped into a tiny portion of the city with generalised journalism such as:

397  General / The Forum / Re: Bristol, Give Me a Signal... on: July 09, 2013, 12:45:24
I think it is a typical small view of Bristol by someone who has not really spent much time here and has only been to a few parts and not really met many locals. I read it yesterday and I don't recall it mentioning the Harbour Festival, The Carnival, Ashton Court/Brisfest, The Balloon Fiesta, the outlying areas that make up most of Bristol's people such as Southmead, Hengrove, Knowle, Whitchurch, Hartcliffe, Henbury, Bedminster, etc. It seems to focus on PSRC, Glos Road, Nelson Street, Banksy and a couple of nights out. It doesn't acknowledge the existence of the waterfront, Oceana and other bars in that area and other such less-than-cool attributes of the city, which make up most of the city's population.
