Hello Hijack - long time no forumising. I'm a bit stuck with something and hope one of you can help me...

I need someone to paint on a piece of meat.

It's a very small piece of meat (and cooked), and I would like you to paint a face on it. It needs to be good, so you'll need to be a pretty good artist and able to draw decent images of people copied from photos etc.

This is a genuine request. There's pretty good payment available. The only catch is it needs doing in the next 24 hours really.

PM me if you can help... thanks

damn it feels good to be gangster!

I created a new process at for scheduling changes at work, and insisted on calling it Team Planning Schedules or TPS for short. To schedule a change you need to submit a TPS cover sheet. FACT. Am just waiting for someone else who has seen the film to rumble me  Slayer

And yes, when someone fails to submit one, I am straight round at their desk asking if they got the memo........

That's a brilliant idea. I am so doing that.

Is it basically a sweet filesharing facilitation site?

Pretty much, always found Usenet a bit of a pain to use, and if you're just after the usual content that's spread around the internets then BitTorrent would be more straight forward.

General benefits of Usenet:

Faster downloads
'0 Day content' (i.e material goes onto Usenet first before being spread through Bittorrent)

But you genrally pay for a decent service (all ISPs usually maintain their own Usenet servers as well, but speeds are usually dubious).

Ah OK, cheers Sparko. Would you use it for anything else except naughty filesharing? i.e. anything legal?

For what it's worth, Stokes Croft is looking quite good at the moment. Better than it has for a while - oh the heady days of Club Loco...

Yes its true that it is, but the point has to be stressed that that is due to a lot of other people investing in the area, most of which has little or anything to do with the PRSC.

Fair do, those people who are investing could do worse than take a leaf out of Chalkley's book and self-publicise a bit to raise awareness of this then.

Hello jackers,

I work for a big comms agency in Bristol and we are looking to recruit some account execs for our PR department... really good opportunity to work on some massive clients in a beautiful office. Ideally looking for people with at least a year's relevant experience, who are bright, creative and enthusiastic. Perks of the job include free cider, mouthwash and intimate lubricant Bad Teeth

18  General / The Forum / Re: Help me come up with the ultimate student competition? on: September 01, 2009, 21:00:16
Hello.
I need some help with ideas please (yes I'm basically asking you to do my work for me Tongue)

Basically I'm racking my brains to come up with a really cool competition idea to advertise a product to students around the UK. It's got to be something really appealing that will have them going to the website and registering in droves to win this awesome prize. 

The original idea was to give away a house party sponsored by the brand - so basically we would rock up at their flat with a load of booze, soundsystem and Djs and put on a party for them. However on closer inspection this has turned into a logistical nightmare due to issues with things like Landlords (most students rent) Neighbours (hate houseparties and will inevitably hold the company responsible) Insurance against injury, damage to property etc. etc..

What I'm looking for now is an alternative idea - it can be anything that you can think of as long as it has maximum possible appeal to a bunch of young kids who are just starting out at uni.. Please let me know your ideas.  Two Thumbs

Thijack. Smiley

why not the original idea but at club or bar or sumit? gets out of the loop hole of the landlords etc.
may be in the studen union?  Two Thumbs

This is the best idea so far, except don't hold it in the union. Hold it somewhere cool or new or exciting (for students at least - when I was in my first year it was Thekla and Lakota - things don't change much do they), or do a pop-up club in Bridewell police station or something - as long as you don't sell booze you could prob find somewhere nice.

Students are all about their mates - hanging out with them, impressing them, etc so this is a nice way to involve not only the winner but their friends too. Put on a couple of Routemasters to ferry them to the party and back too (what's your budget again?!).

Only problem is if they don't have any mates - suggest you look into an entry mechanic that gets around this, e.g. the person who gets the most mates to sign up to the website wins, or it's a big student house rather than an individual that wins. 3 (the phone people) did something like this on Facebook a while back, and hundreds of thousands of people got involved. It also helps to exclude the loser comper pro types that enter competitions (once I had a granny that won an ipod and a sports kit, she didn't even know what an ipod was. I've also had someone win tickets to a Man U match that was a Rangers fan living in Glasgow who absolutely hated Man U... er, what are you doing entering this competition then you chump).

It is the same management... Apparently Mitch Tonks, the guy that runs it, has had a few of his restaurants go bankrupt, then just starts up another, very similar but differently-named business, and carries on probably leaving suppliers seriously out of pocket.

Put me off going there to be frank.

26  General / The Forum / Re: Harvey Nichols - have they thought it through? on: September 23, 2008, 19:01:10
Tokolosh, i can only assume your original thread was a piss take - yeah they only decided to put Harvey Nics in there earlier this year. I'm pretty sure that Selfridges and HN had a fight over the prime space, which Nics won, back in 2003, as gusset and Pippin suggested. Back when no-one had ever heard the bastard phrase credit crunch.

Also, it was announced in this week's press that high street shop sales this year are up overall by 1.4%. In this climate, it's still growing. Affluent people have stopped buying organic food (hence Whole Foods' demise), cut down on the hours their cleaner works, stopped buying Heat magazine (which is down 16%) but haven't stopped clothes shopping. Yet.

Finally, Bristol is an incredibly affluent place. Anyone who's been on a hot air balloon ride can tell you that from the number of swimming pools, private Bentley-filled drives and posh extensions behind all those mid-terrace Georgian facades. The already-rich (providing they're not lower down the banker rungs) will remain rich.

I'm looking forward to Cabot Circus. Yes it's a consumerist orgy of chain stores, but it should boost the local economy and provide Bristol with shopping that's comparable to much bigger cities. And I love touching and stroking ridiculously overpriced bags.

28  General / The Forum / Re: Who's been to Amsterdam recently then? on: September 10, 2008, 23:21:21
Wandering around the canals some way below Rembrandtsplein is lovely, esp at night. We stayed at the Seven Bridges hotel but it's probably a bit too pimp for your needs - there was a small unassuming coffee shop on the same road though (Reguliersgracht I think) if you want somewhere to escape the crowds/ stag dos.

Speaking of which, I really didn't like the Leidseplein and the surrounding streets - overpriced, shit food and lairy tourists everywhere.

I quite liked wondering around de Pijp, some nice Moroccan cafes and markets and all that malarkey, not too far from the Rijksmuseum.

The Jordaan is also lovely and pretty and has cool little bars and shops and stuff.

We went to the Heineken Experience which was fucking hilarious, not always intentionally, but I think they are revamping it at the moment and taking away all the slightly dated amusing stuff in the process.

In terms of where to stay, it might be worth looking at the Botel - I seem to remember they had some good deals on when we were there (it was two years ago though).

29  General / The Forum / Re: Insomnia on: August 25, 2008, 23:09:37
I used to work for a herbal sleeping tablet manufacturer so as a result have spent quite a lot of time with sleep experts/ learning stuff about sleep and insomnia. Tom you might want to try some of these:

Don't watch telly, use your PC, listen to loud/fast tunes or do anything else too stimulating (except for the obvious, ahem) an hour or so before going to bed.

Dim all the lights an hour or so before bed too

If you need to get up to go to the loo, wear sunglasses/ don't turn the lights on

Don't have a tv or PC or anything of a stimulating nature in your bedroom if you can help it

Don't drink booze or take drugs if you can help it

Don't drink caffeine 6 hours before bed

Ensure you're well hydrated and eating a balanced diet - a slice of toast with peanut butter and a hot milky drink half an hour before bed can help (but not hot chocolate as this often has caffeine in)

Ensure your bed/pillow is comfy and your duvet/ sheets/blankets are nice and soft and clean

If you wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep after giving it a reasonable go, get up. Don't look at a clock

But don't go on the PC or watch telly - try reading a boring book (in another room, not your bedroom)

Consider deep breathing techniques/simple meditation

Try using eye masks/ ear plugs if you have to sleep at weird hours

Try to go to bed and get up at the same time every day including weekends

If your job won't allow this, maybe you can consider getting someone to do the late night bit...?

By the way, are you anxious about anything?

I was just saying the same thing a day or two ago.
Dave Navarro on axe duties while Fruscianti was 'convalescing.' Lovely stuff - shame it didn't last, although Fruscianti would probably be dead if it had lasted.
This was their last great album IMO. I don't think it has much to do with drugs though - Frusc was out of the band at that point selling giutars for drugs, losing all his money and teeth; Kiedis was clean I think, Flea was over drugs by then, and Chad was always too cool for drugs. I just think they got older, and like many before them, started making safer, easier music. I think BSSM was also made relatively clean (or cleaner than the first four albums).
Apparently Chad is making jazz records in Japan these days. He was always my favourite Chili.

I think Emma has a good point here - we've only heard his side of the story, and who knows how he's treated her and their kids himself? And even if it is true, he should be spending his time going to the police/authorities and looking after his kids, not answering people's facile questions on ebay and slagging off his wife's music taste.

I reckon it's all balls, and they're his records, and it's a good way to get attention to sell them for an inflated price.

Incidentally, it's much more common for fathers to leave their kids than it is for mothers.

Whoever said " It's really not hard to check with the writer" (Jon Ethics?) has no idea. It might be if you're the writer, and spend most of your time in front of hijack bashing out the cheeky wanks, but have you considered how hard it might be to get hold of Giles Coren, when you have a zillion lines of copy to sub on a Friday night and he's busy raving with his salabrity mates? And you're paid what he earns writing one feature in a fortnight?

are you a sub?

just saying, if i was him i'd be pretty pissed off too.

at the end of the day his name is on the piece, it doesn't say
'By Giles Coran, butchered by Jem'



no I'm not a sub - I'm just big on empathy - but if I was I would write Coren not Coran, for a start Bad Teeth
