1  General / The Forum / Re: Fracking on: September 17, 2014, 00:34:15
The risk of contaminating water supplies just makes the whole concept of fracking seem absolutely fucking mental to me.

With the amount of energy produced by the Gulf Stream the UK should be investing in clean technology.

Script

That's the point really. We don't need fracking - we're being force-fed it on the back of a huge propaganda campaign because the Tories love Big Energy and are ideologically-aligned with corporate entities like Cuadrilla who are happy to rape the planet for short-term financial gain.

I wrote a piece about the state of fracking in the US - certainly over there the companies involved actively withhold as much information as possible about the chemicals they use, so that scientists monitoring changes in the water table cannot say with certainty where the chemicals are coming from. Horrific animal deformities are commonplace. I have no reason to think it will be any different in the UK - the government may have the power to demand full disclosure, but it won't, because it doesn't want to know. It'll do what it always does and lie and dissemble its way through the various resultant eco/PR disasters until people get bored of protesting and grudgingly integrate fracking into the growing collective framework of "Depressing Things We Have To Tolerate As Long As Money Is King".

More generally, let's remember that the people who run Big Energy are not in it as magnanimous, conscientious humanitarians who spent their formative years desperately concerned about the prevention of blackouts and resolved to go into the energy business lest the species die out through not being able to keep the lights on; if the oil/gas money suddenly dried up they'd all be investment bankers.

 Script

If you believe in global warming/climate change, and understand that 95% of the world's scientists agree that going above 2degreesC warming will be really very catastrophic, then fracking is at best useless, and at worst contributing to a major fucking disaster. And that's without taking into consideration the earthquakes and water contamination.

Total existing oil, gas & coal reserves, that have already been accessed or extracted, (that's the carbon fuels we already have access to for burning, without looking for any more by fracking or other exploratory drilling) already far exceed the amount that we are able to burn before taking us over that 2degreesC temperature rise limit.

[In order to remain with 2degreesC global warming...]"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's carbon-budget model, widely considered the most reliable, puts the budget for 2012-2100 at between 886 and 1119 gigatons of CO2. Total known fossil fuel reserves in the world, if burned, would add 2860 gigatons of CO2 to the atmosphere. Thus, simple math indicates that almost two-thirds of all known fossil fuel reserves must remain unburned if global temperatures are to remain habitable"

Therefore all new fossil fuel exploration and extraction projects are entirely pointless.

Private invertation only and suff to avoid licence issues obviously.

I heard a couple of years ago that there was one of these barns not far south of bristol, but that it was always booked up years in advance, and not advertised publicly so you had to know someone who knew someone etc...

I finally have my Xmas/NYE game plan together, and will be hitting BPW on the 28th (no uplift, just trail shiz). If any of you ladies or gents want to join us you would be most welcome.

Yes mate, will be there. You spoken to greasy about it?

At the moment he's due back in Briz the day after, but I've sent him a message to see if he can be persuaded back West in time to join us.

I'll try and persuade him too.  Two Thumbs

I think you can do single uplifts there too that you arrange on the day, I don't fancy riding up that hill more than once and would be a shame to go there and only do one run.

It's 4 pound an uplift on the day, but you have to go to the back of the queue behind everyone who's pre-booked, so even if you're first in the queue when the van arrives, if 20 turn up that all pre-booked then they get priority over you :/
the fire road is the only way to get multiple runs in without uplifts really, that or being an athlete

15  General / The Forum / Re: Brisfest on: October 06, 2013, 13:53:16
bring it back to the harbourside, that was a winning formula! Sept is far too late in the year to be holding things like this in a field, surely?!

It's interesting how many people have said go back to the harbourside, it was a really big deal/achievement/aim for us to move up to ashton court, so it's quite a surprise to hear people say that. It went well in the harbourside, but it's just not that nice a space. The sunny busy saturday up at ashton court last year was awesome though no? We'd never have that again if we went back to the harbourside.

We've had more reliably good/dry weather on that weekend in september over the last 5 years than most summer time festivals do. sunday 2012 notwithstanding of course! That was bad.   

I think rather than booking half-assed outside acts, they should have re-united the Wildbunch - or had a Bristol legends mash-up. Roni Size/Portishead/etc etc all on one stage. There was nothing defining 'Bristol' about it - it could have been a field anywhere in the country

We have done everything we possibly can to try and convince portishead and massive attack to play, and to no avail. We had roni size last year though. re-uniting acts and things is easier said than done!

I know of, some Quality local acts, who would have happily played for free. But submitted to play and never heard anything back. So I don't really agree with that statement.
On the subject of people getting fleeced the family area wins hands down. £5 for a fucking face painting? And that's before your children bawl their eyes out upon seeing the overpriced rides.

I really hate the thought of acts offering to play and not getting a response, let alone a set. But it's the unfortunate result of putting out an open call for submissions and not having enough man power to go through the results properly. I've tried personally going through the huge spreadsheet of submitted acts we have when I was programming a fundraiser and it's a nightmare. 1000s of artists/musicians/djs all trying to sell themselves in a spreadsheet, and most of them doing it really badly (by which i mean that if you're looking for acts of a certain genre, most that describe themselves as that genre are not really it at all). It makes sifting through for the good acts near impossible. Every single one of the acts I found that I wanted to book for my fundraiser were unavailable that date, or no longer willing to play for free due to success since submitting their offer to play for us, or for some other reason couldn't play.
And I know this happens to all of our festival stage programmers too, even tho we've put guidelines in place for our programmers to try and combat the 'promoters and their mates' syndrome, it's still inevitable that it would be impossible for them to go through that entire spreadsheet of acts and for every act that's offered to play to get a response. We just don't have the man power.
But yeah, it really bums me out that people offer to perform and don't hear back or get booked, we're gonna try and improve that system asap so that we can book more of the quality acts that offer, and not alienate them by not replying!

You can't really blame us for expensive face painting, that's like blaming boomtown or glastonbury for an expensive food stall :/
16  General / The Forum / Re: Brisfest on: October 04, 2013, 19:00:25
Yeah I do quite like tko's suggestion, will definitely bring it up at the next meeting.

And I agree our lineup wasn't too current or trendy, but I don't know what could be done to improve it without spending a lot more money, which would translate to much higher ticket prices. Either that or relying purely on who we can get to play for free and make the whole thing even cheaper. But I'm just not convinced there's that many people in bristol willing to leave their sofas for acts they haven't heard of.
Well that's not true really, but there is a limited amount of choice. After year 3 it was a struggle to find quality acts that were up for playing for free or very cheap who we hadn't had play already. We exist to represent music from the south west, but that's a limited pool at the end of the day.

I'm not involved in the booking really, not that it would be any better if I was, I've got very unpopular taste in music!

In regards to the above, of course £40 over a weekend is comparable to a one day event costing £20,

You're comparing our 'on the door' price to LSTD etc's super early bird price. They were £40 on the door just for 1 day. We were £30 for the early birds. jus sayin...
17  General / The Forum / Re: Brisfest on: October 04, 2013, 12:01:06
Yeah it's really good to hear this feedback from people. We need as many points of view as we can get! (although this does feed into the too many cooks thing...)

Getting the size/price/breadth of appeal right is the crucial concoction I think and we do need to make some changes somewhere.
 I still struggle to understand why people complain about the ticket price being too high though when things like tokyo dub and love saves the day are almost as expensive for a 1 day event as we are for 2 days? That's our reasoning in only doing weekend tickets, it's almost as cheap as comparable festivals' day tickets.

Yet those festivals have a much narrower music policy, they are basically the in:motion lineup compressed into 1 day/1 weekend.
Brisfest gets criticised for spreading itself too thin, and equally not appealing enough to any one a string of specific demographics. we can't do both!

We don't want to pigeon hole ourselves by being a festival for any one section of the city's people, we want it to be for everyone, but as has been pointed out, you can't really afford a banging lineup featuring (even moderately) big names in every genre for the measly budget that £35 a ticket affords us.

just saying is all.

What difference does it make if they ran him over before hacking him up?
I wrote a proper reply to this but kept getting denied when i tried to post it, can't be bothered to write it again. I'll just say that obviously I wasn't saying a general 'fair play to them', its comparative to people that blow themselves up, killing/injuring lots more people, and not articulating any of their message or why they did it. These guys made a bigger point with less bloodshed (regardless of the ridiculous tinfoil debate about how much blood there actually was or should have been)
26  General / The Forum / Re: Hack Attack on: May 28, 2013, 17:55:39
Quote
The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers, and this British soldier is one, is a eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. By Allah, we swear by the Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone. So what if we want to live by the Sharia in Muslim lands. Why does that mean you must follow us and chase us and call us extremists and kill us? Rather you lot are extreme. You are the ones. When you drop a bomb, do you think it hits one person or rather your bomb wipes out a whole family. This is the reality. By Allah, if I saw your mother today with a buggy I would help her up the stairs. This is my nature. But we are forced by the Qur'an in Sura at-Tawba [Chapter 9 of the Qur'an], through many, many ayah [verses] throughout the Qur'an that [say] we must fight them as they fight us, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. I apologise that women had to witness this today, but in our land our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your governments. They don't care about you. Do you think David Cameron is gonna get caught in the street when we start busting our guns? Do you think the politicians are going to die? No it's going to be the average guy, like you, and your children. So get rid of them. Tell them to bring our troops back so we can..., so you can all live in peace. Leave our lands and you will live in peace. That's all I have to say. Allah's peace and blessings be upon Muhammad, as-salamu alaykum."

 Shocked

It sucks that a pretty much innocent man had to die for no real direct reason. But, fair play to them, what they did is a lot less cowardly than a suicide bomber, who kind of gets out of the shitstorm following their attack by being dead. These guys had a message and a statement to make, and I can't really disagree with any of it. Except the killing, but we kind of started that really (i don't know the history that well so im sure someone else started it if you go back far enough). The world police are getting way out of control, there seems to be no reason for western powers to reign in their drone attacks and targeted killings, which inevitably are not that targeted and create a lot of collateral damage, mostly in muslim communities.
I bet 90% of the thugs spouting anti-muslim crap at the moment would be wanting to do something similar to what these guys did if it was their cultural heritage being constantly bombed and the extended families of everyone in their community being blown up all the time.

On the other side of the coin, I think you've gotta have a bit of a screw loose to go and hack up some guy because he's a member of an organisation that does something bad. I don't agree with an eye for an eye, or sharia law, or a religion that could teach anything as intolerant as any of those things, but I can still see where they're coming from...

I also can't believe greezebag was considering any of those inconsistencies to merit real attention. Like really dude? I was with you on some of the stuff you posted in the boston thread, and by no means do i swallow 'the official story' on any occasion without questioning it thoroughly, but this time you really took the tinfoil bait and sound utterly ridiculous.

Could you provide a link to a 13 minute mix that showcases your skills as a selector?

Could you bring a 100 people or less with you?

The thing is, if you have any notion of a community music scene, you must know it's a bit an unrealistic ask?
The people with sets to offer are deluged by people asking for them. People they know well, and who's djing skills they are confident in. It's kind of obvious surely that the sets will all be taken by those people rather than people from out of town asking on a forum. I know it sounds a bit like 'local sets for local people', and I guess it is, but not in a xenophobic or conspiratorial way, just in the way that people hook up their mates before they hook up strangers.

If you buy a shirt from a shop, and then see it reduced the next week, you don't go back and give them hell for reducing it after you bought it... I do sympathise with your frustration, but it's just bad luck, not a reason to have a go at colston hall for putting on a sale.

Sometimes, yeah, but usually things breakdown because they aren't working, and aren't going to work.

In my experience, mental girls are good at hiding the mental when they want you back, but it soon comes out again once you are back. Give it another go if you want, but don't get sucked in. As soon as you see that old behaviour come back, get out of there, don't be thinking that it's just a temporary glitch or whatever.

47  General / The Forum / Re: Guns don't kill people - Americans do. on: December 18, 2012, 11:20:48
Without a doubt. But sadly guns already exist, in their droves. Most of the main shareholders of the companies that make said guns are congressmen or part of the loby process.

Even if greater control of guns comes about as a result of this, there will be another school shooting. Instead of getting their gun from Wal-Mart, they will get it via the black market. Further control will also inflate said black market en masse.

It is too little, too late.

But it's about reducing access as much as possible. If they bring in tighter controls now, then that will slightly limit gun access now. In 10 years, there will be 10 years less worth of guns-sold-frivolously, maybe even scores more that have been handed in in amnesty. By then the gun-nuts will also have adjusted somewhat to the slightly tighter controls, and perhaps even stricter controls could then be brought in.
America has to be weaned off it's gun obsession, and it's never too late to start, cuz it's gonna take a long time.

To say 'it is too little too late', while true, is to play into the hands of the NRA.  Would you say 'theres no point in arresting peadophiles who were raping kids in the 70s, its too little too late'

shutting the door after the horse has bolted is still useful if there's other horses who might leg it

Always wanted to go there, haven't managed it yet. The colour inn is also a good shout if you don't want to go quite all the way up whiteladies. They do what i'd consider 'proper' cocktails like the milk thistle, except their's taste nice!
I know what you mean about sex on the beach skewing everyones view of what a cocktail should be, but that's not what I meant. I've enjoyed countless pretentious drinks, in the uk and abroad, but every single one i tried (most of the menu between sips of all my mates drinks) in the milk thistle was so far from up my street i would have rather been drinking in 'spoons. I think that was down to my particular tastes to an extent, but no one seemed that bowled over by their drink, which you should be when you're paying that much

I had the worst cocktail i've ever had there. It tasted a bit like a pine car air freshner, and cost about £100,000

None of their cocktails on the menu were really very nice, but they can make a 'normal' one fine. Rummer shits all over it imo tho

There is no relation between this:
if you ... make investments in gold etc for financial security ... you are now an extremist and in the words of the FBI "a danger to local law enforcement officers"

and

this:
from the article
".... believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard...."

I agree with the 2nd statement, but the first one is a bit  Smashed

but no, i haven't watched all the videos
