There are a variety of tips here

http://hackaday.com/2009/05/24/soldering-headphone-wire/

Mostly involving burning and sanding, although the molten solder bath sounds a bit more refined. I'd still not want to fuck up a pair of decent headphones to add a mic though.

Headphone cable is weird.

 Script It is often plastic coated IIRC, so requires a bit of work to get it to a position where it can be soldered.

watch the Raid. Its the Citizen Kane of people being kicked in the face

In a similar vein, Dredd 3D is the equivalent but with guns.  Silly but fun and the only movie I've watched that was enhanced by 3D. 

I have heard that Dredd and The Raid are very similar, but it is a coincidence. I thought Dredd was alright, it will be good if they keep it going and expand into the rest of the 2000AD universe.

Quietly? Not really. The country has had countless brutal murders over the last 10 years and some parts of the country are run by the drug cartels whilst others are taking it upon themselves to police their streets.

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.

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.

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.
385  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.
