    Schnitzel with noodles - what made you smile today?

    fair play, i see your point. wasnt accusing you of racism btw, the crowd who start screeching "OMG DATS RAYSIST!" at the tiniest thing (often not even remotely racist) annoy me nearly as much as the actual racists.

    yeah but it wasnt involving edgar wright, and it shows. paul is a completely different style of film, the cornetto trilogy seems to be all about smashing together genres and themes in a very british way (SOTD: rom com with zombies, hot fuzz: action cop films meet the wicker man in a quaint village). paul just doesnt have the same type of humor as SOTD, hot fuzz, spaced or anything else pegg, wright and frost have done together. not that its a bad film. bit of a generalisation there isnt it? could just say theres an awful lot of *suitcase* drivers about, i dont really think incompetence is exclusive to any race/gender/religion.

    What music are you currently listening to?

    i feel that this is very much gonna be a marmite thing, especially with the more stuck up and elitist metalheads. but i really love this. heard this band last week and have been really impressed with quite how original the end result is. several years ago i don't doubt that i'd have sneered at it, grime and djent are certainly an unlikely fusion, but thankfully i'm not the rather fundamentalist metalhead that i once was and have learned to appreciate all sorts of music. i think the vocals make it far more accessible than most djent, which can surely only be a good thing. edit: while typing this it went over onto: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RebeaANv5g0 proper naughty bit of reverse bass! no idea how hardstyle has changed from the likes of this to what it is these days, shame really

    bit of an odd one, but i was listening to the radio 1 breakfast show this morning and nick grimshaw was saying about some time in the last few days he'd met the queen (in one of these formal introduction jobbies) and that the guy introduced him and there was a horrible awkward silence which he broke with a cheerful "heya, y'alright?" to which she just looked at him, ignored him and walked on. now i know there's all this *badger*s about 'you mustn't speak to the queen unless she speaks to you' but come one now! if someone you've just been intorduced to says hello to you, you don't glare at them and then blank them, it's downright *fruitcage* rude. I dont care who you are, that's just bloody rude. not sure why it struck quite such a nerve but it genuinely wound me up and has made me resent the royals that little bit more.

    remove them as soon as they crop up. you really need to stay as invisible as possible for as long as feasibly possible.

    nah, keep up with infecting people and keeping it low profile until you've got almost everyone infected. if you start racking up a body count as soon as the cure is started it will scare them into deploying more countermeasures and putting more into research. i'd completed all of them on brutal

    fungus is quite easy IMO. quite early in the game get one or 2 of the fungal spore burst thingies since they only cost 1 or 2 DNA points, that way it should spread quicker. in general just focus on boosting infectivity and minimising symptoms, then once the whole world is infected you can unleash hell! 2 points in cold resistance is pretty much essential to infect greenland, 2 ranks in waterborne helps as well. also i generally find india is a good starting place.

    oddly enough, unlike in the original pandemic madagascar is pretty easy to infect. greenland is the tough one this time round, one shipping route, no airport, sparsely populated and no chance of getting anywhere unless you've got 2 points in cold resistance.

    oddly enough that night i did manage to get a half decent sounding transition between 190BPM hardtek and dubstep (well, a dubsteppy bit in another hardtek track), didn't think it would work at all but it sounded surprisingly good. wasn't quite so in the zone today but downloaded a bunch of early hardstyle tracks and i've been playing about with them. recorded a little 17 min mix with a handful of them just now, cocked up the timing on the last track's drop but overall i don't think it sounds too bad for someone who's only been playing about for two days and has been working with no real instruction or any advice.

    Borrowed my mate's USB MIDI controller to try my hand at mixing last night and i have to say i think i'm really getting the hang of it and im really enjoying it. it's funny really, i'd been getting the hang of trance but struggling with faster stuff like hardtek (which is what i'd really like to mix) and it just came to me all of a sudden out of no where, i just suddenly got a feel for it and i was in the zone. really quite pleased with myself, perhaps i've finally found something to be good at

    What music are you currently listening to?

    a high octane mix of hard trance, hard house, hardtek, dutch hardcore and most other things with 'hard' in the name... oh, and minimal techno

    as much as i appreciate your support it's not really as easy as flicking the switches marked 'happy', 'motivated' and 'self esteem'. oddly enough today i saw this pop up at the top of my tumblr dashboard: http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/depression-part-two.html found it quite startling how accurate most of this is for me at the moment. either way, i've ordered a load of 5htp which should be getting here tomorrow i'll probably see how that goes for a month or so and see if it helps. i don't really have the creative capacity to create my own music (as much as i'd love to) perhaps if and when i get the hang of mixing tunes i could start trying to produce my own. at the moment my mind is pretty much silent, perhaps if i start to gain a better understanding of the music i love and can focus my mind then ideas will start flowing about again then i'll have something to work with. no change there then, i constantly lose track of time as it is, usually while sitting on the sofa staring at the wall or a blank TV screen. so frankly it'd be nice to lose myself in something challenging and creative for a change. i do think this might be the answer for me since it really feels like music is one of the few proper escapes i have, if i whack some sort of hard dance on it'll often put me on a massive high, almost feels like i'm on E and i'll often dance around my living room like a twat for a good half hour plus.

    meaningless sex has never really appealed to me, only had a couple of one nighters in my life. frankly i'm just terrible at talking to women... well, people in general. mild aspergers syndrome :/ i realise that it's important to be happy alone or in day to day life and that's whats been really getting to me recently. I just have no motivation and get very little enjoyment from anything, i mean i spend most of my time sitting about doing *fruitcage* all. i've got over a grands worth of gaming PC, a PS3, plenty of games for both and loads of other stuff i could be doing, but i just cant bring myself to do anything. been thinking of trying to learn to DJ/mix seeing as music is one of the few things i'm at all passionate about recently and it'd give me something to do, it'd be nice to do something creative too.

    im not enjoying it either, my last relationship ended this new years day. to be fair it's best that it's over, the last few months she was downright abusive at times. just makes me sad to think of how happy i was for the first year, happier than i've ever really been. i've felt pretty broken since to be honest. wouldnt be so bad if i was better with people. i've always struggled with social interaction, for quite a while she really helped me feel better about myself then over the last few months of the relationship just about all my confidence and self esteem was stripped away again. i'm probably happier with my physical appearance than i've ever been, it's just my brain holding me back.

    looks like it'd make a good battery bag

    really like that stock pouch btw. looks tidy and is one of the more unusual things to see on the back of an AK IMO (well, that still looks good anyway)

    i wouldnt have thought it would have been the ibuprofen. with paracetamol the difference between a therapeutic dose and a potentially harmful is relatively small, but ibuprofen is apparently safe at double the typical over the counter recommended dose (so 800mg as opposed to 400). it's funny when you get random things like that happen, last year i woke up one morning barely able to move from back pain. i've never had trouble with my back before or since then, but i woke up and was in agony as soon as i tried to move. was a little stiff the next day but it sorted itself out in under 2 days and hasnt been back. odd.

    by using the word gay as a general negative term i do not mean "in the manner of a homosexual" by using the word in this way, no one is being mocked. sorry to drag this up again, just thought that was rather hypocritical considering that you spent several posts telling me that derogatory terms are always offensive regardless of context

    my mate recently went to thailand and over there it still is. well, some form of amphetamine anyway

    frenchcore remix of an offpsring track. so wrong, but so right

    pretty much every word has the potential to cause offense if you're creative enough. i think it's a bit messed up that no one was allowed to call YOU ginge, if that's your moniker of choice. fair enough if she doesn't like being called it herself, that's somewhat understandable as it's being directed personally and points out a physical feature that perhaps she's somewhat insecure about. To be honest i'd probably never call a woman ginge anyway, it's pretty common for blokes to jokingly use mildly derogatory nicknames, not so much women. One of the key differences between your example and my example is that in the context i'm talking about using the word gay it's not actually directed at anyone. i wouldn't greet a gay person with "alright poof?" as it could easily be misconstrued as me kind of singling them out based on their sexuality. using gay as a negative adjective in a situation where sexuality does not enter into the equation is fine IMO as it's clearly being used to mean something else perhaps if you think in binary.
