Who?

Read the link. He made over 300 films, mostly kung fu, but he also helped bank roll Bladerunner.

Jeru the Damaja name drops him on Come Clean too.

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.

loving what I've played so far of Last of Us.

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.
355  General / The Forum / Re: GAMERS! on: January 03, 2014, 10:21:50
Still not got it yet.

I keep thinking about it, but I'm just not that fussed at the moment. The last one was such a let down, that it has put me off a bit.

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

irritating Michael Biehn.

yeah but if he didn't get that part he wouldn't have been in Alien and thus delivering possibly the greatest movie quote ever:

" I wanna introduce you to a personal friend of mine. This is an M41A pulse rifle. Ten millimeter with over-and-under thirty millimeter pump action grenade launcher. "


I could happily live without Aliens, his character in it and his identical character in The Abyss too.
364  General / The Forum / Re: The Terminator on: December 24, 2013, 09:58:09
I thought it looked a bit TV movie like, but it was on Channel 5 and their transmission quality is shite. It was never a great film, but has some very good bits in it, interspersed with the irritating Michael Biehn.

As you know, the most recent figures for daily page hits are: August - 44,162; September - 48,544; October - 55,824.

Hijack gets approx 26,000 per day and look how busy it really is.

Venue went downhill about 10 years ago and I didn't even realise it was still going, I thought it had gone a couple of years ago.

The clamping down on anonymity and the change to YouTube, among other sites, on how they publish comments, might, maybe, result in private forums becomingpopular again? I doubt it, having read the comments on the various FB pleas from Greenpeace; people will speak their mind regardless of whether they can be identified directly or not.

Furthermore, if you're going to head out as a family on Gloucester Road on a Saturday, and then mummy and little Tarquin-Farquhart are going to just sit around in a cafe whilst daddy gets the shopping in, maybe mummy and little Tarquin could consider staying the fuck at home such that the rest of us have enough room to move during the single 6 hour period when we're not at work and the shops are open.
