i don't know of anyone using twitter except you, jeph...

Actually this is a good point, the only people I'm following on Twitter pretty much are bloggers and webcomic artists, nobody I even know in the "I know you on the Internet" sense... Sooooo

Dear Blog Thread,

(sorta sad sack post ahead, bail out before it's too late)

Today I found out I had overdrawn on my savings account, and I found this out when I was trying to put money on my train card. I had to borrow the fare. I'm irresponsible.

Today I realised just how easily I could fail my course, and more or less fuck up everything I've worked for this past 12 months.

On the upside, I failed my eye test! Yay glasses!

Nah, but it's actually officially out now, so I think I might just buy it.

Okay, because I found it and was going to give you the link. But I suppose one of us should actually buy the CD.

The cute beardy guy squinted as he handed over the money for his coffee. "Hey," he said slowly. "I know you. Don't you have a Flickr?"

"Oh." I blinked. "Y..yes...."

He grinned.

I twigged. "Oh! You must be in the Newcastle Hunter Valley group!"

"I just joined... had a quick look around." He couldn't believe it any more than I could.

"You really should... you really should come to one of our meetups," I blurted, filling the milk jug and calibrating the steam wand. The slight screech evened out to a steady swooshing as the full cream foamed. "They're a great bunch of people, our next meet is a sunset - I mean sunrise, on the 21st. Or. I forget. It's a Sunday. BBQ breakfast and champagne. They're a great bunch of people, fantastic."

I poured the milk evenly, swooshing a big love heart into the crema, popped a lid on and passed the coffee over. "Here's your flat white. Thanks!"

He bit his lip and smiled a sideways smile as he sauntered out of the shop.

Wow, do I need a new job. Had a paycheck shorted by mistake a few weeks ago. The owner gave me another check to make up the shortfall and that check bounced.  :-o

Sort of the icing on a rotting cake, if you get my drift. So I'm looking around for something else. 9-5 is good for me, and a little more pay wouldn't be bad. Anyway, I'm sick of retail, I know that much.

the theme of the week here in guelph has been "sunny with spontaneous thunderstorms". i haven't formed an opinion on it yet.

the one i remember most took place on monday, really suddenly. for the duration of the day it had been absolutely clear and sunny. i have these two friends that i walk home with from work every day, and as we left the university this huge black cloud very suddenly ascended in the shape of a massive tunnel and i remember thinking "oh that's so pretty" followed immediately by "hey, i bet this is the sort of thing people see and think right before they die." not even five seconds after that thought crossed my mind there were these blinding flashes of lighting one after another followed by thunder so loud i thought my ears were going to explode and the sky completely opened up with rain and hail everywhere. we were somewhere in the middle of the road at this point and ran into the nearest building, a food bank, pounding on the door and screaming for someone to let us in. luckily the storm lasted only about half an hour and immediately after the sky cleared up and it was as though nothing had happened. really amazing.

the other thing that may or may not make this story more depressing was that the first thing i did when it started raining, without thinking, was take off my sweater and wrap my ipod in it because i was more concerned with the well-being of my ipod than myself. i'm kind of poor so maybe that makes sense.

a girl i didn't know recognized me from livejournal once, which was pretty fucking weird considering i barely update that anymore and almost never have photos of myself in there. she got really excited and i just sort of shrugged and said thanks which was maybe kind of rude but come on i don't use the internet enough to be prepared for these kinds of situations.

I can't say I've had any freaky internet stalkish moments, as far as I can remember.

I have had people that have recognised me because of the t-shirts I wear, seeing a lot of student performances and bitching in length about my flatmates before.

Although the last one doesn't really count, as I was actually telling that to the guy that remembered me. Although, now that I think about it, I wish someone had overheard and was inspired by my passionate, vitriolic rant.

My boyfriends hot water tap exploded this morning whilst I was on the toilet, showering me with ice cold, electrified water under significant pressure and flooding the room. This occured twenty minutes before his mum was coming round.

I have kind of been rocking backwards and forwards chain-smoking all day.

This thread is actually pretty good so far, I've read everything on this page. Keep it up. The thread relies on us all being extra patient and nice to each other so let's try to keep it that way and maybe it can be more than an experiment.

Some of you might know that I am a big fan of a recording studio in Evanston, IL called Electrical Audio. This studio represents an aesthetic that is now particularly rare within the music industry, mainstream or independent. The studio was built from the life-savings of a couple of punk rockers to be the ultimate analogue recording environment. You can record and mix an entire album to magnetic tape for a few hundred dollars and it will sound amazing. Practically all my favourite records of the last ten years were recorded in this studio. If you see a record bearing the legend 'Recorded at Electrical Audio', it's almost certainly a good album and worth hearing. It's more than a studio, it's a microcosm of everything good and decent about the independent music community.

Electrical Audio also has an internet forum that has developed over the years. The people who frequent this forum are the staff of Electrical Audio itself, their friends and family and also many musicians, artists and recording engineers. These are some truly remarkable people and I hold that it is the most idyllic online musical community on the internet. People will bend over backwards to help you with practically anything, just to be nice. You can find folks to help you on just about any project you might be working on. If you happen to be in the same city or town as another forumite, you can be assured of their hospitality at the shortest notice. It's just a bunch of good, good people who happen to enjoy a particular avenue of music. I'm actually one of the youngest people on Electrical Audio and because I have been there since I was a teenager, most of the regulars can claim to have been at least partially responsible for who I am today. I never really clicked with my own family and I spent basically all of my youth drifting, trying to work out who I was as a person. Thanks to the kind words of patience and encouragement of these fine individuals, I feel like I have finally achieved happiness with who I am. Amazingly, as soon as this happened my life became so much easier. It's like everything has just floated into place all of a sudden and I'm enjoying myself to a truly embarrassing degree.

Yesterday, one of the staff of Electrical Audio asked me if I would like to take the responsibility of moderating their community forum. Interestingly, just a couple of months ago I quit the forum which I had been moderating on for two years because I felt disenfranchised from the movement which had spawned the forum. Since I don't particularly like moderating internet forums, I had to give this some serious thought. Eventually I concluded that it's such an honour to be asked that it would be churlish of me to refuse the offer to be part of the community which was such a massive inspiration to me over the many years I have been a member. I hope I can be of some service to this bastion of the independent music world, if only in some minor and largely inconsequential manner. While the QC Forums is populated by people who are my closest friends, EA is my family and I hope I don't let them down.

Woo, go Tommy! Internet responsibility is life-affirming  8-)

I just did some exciting finance-sorting (I'm still at an age where acting like a grown up can be fun) and I'm gutted to discover that my 38.00 tax return hasn't arrived yet. It's been at least a month since I sent off the form, I might have to go and ask my bank what's happened. It seems a little churlish when I just opened a savings bond of more than 3,000 but that is my university money, and the 38.00 was my summer holiday money. So I want it back.

In other news my grandfather is here. I haven't formed an opinion yet; we see him so seldom that I'm not sure whether I like him or not, although I'm inclined to dislike all visitors as a matter of course because they make me feel I have to wear proper clothes and be polite over breakfast.

Speaking of smoking...

Three of my friends have bought (well, they're renting) a house for the summer. All of them have jobs, so they'll be spending a lot of their time doing that. But they're all pretty big ganj smokers, which is fine, but they've only had the place for 3 days, and every time I go over there to chill with them at night, I'm greeted by this cloud of smoke when I open the door. I don't smoke with them much, but just being in that house gives you a pretty massive contact high. My buddy Seth was using a fork as a roach clip, and when it was just about out, he Wu-tanged it--just shoved it in his mouth, chewed it and swallowed it.

Ironically, it's actually a really nice house. They've got cable,  5 bedrooms, and about 4 different TVs. No intranets though, which sucks for them.

By the end of the summer it's going to be a dump.

Hey, so I'm at work today and I get a call from my fiancee. She's heading up to a place just a few hours north of where I am right now to stay and take some summer classes, but was planning on taking the train. Until this morning, when she found out she had to drive, instead! So, she was able to stop off at campus for 45 minutes or so and see me! We walked around a bit (I was working--still am working, in fact--and walking around campus is basically what I do) and found an empty room (the band room) to sit and talk for a while (it didn't get THAT much more intimate than that) before she had to take off again. I'll probably see her next when we go up to northern Michigan for a while next month for a folk music festival.

Life was good to me today.

I just looked up their address on their website, and at first I was confused because it sounded like west of me, not north (Evanston is north.) Then I looked it up on on a map and realized that yep, that's not Evanston, that's Logan Square.

I could not enjoy the Swervedriver show because of a girl

why do i even try
I saw them last month at the Marquis. It was amazing, especially since there were not a lot of people. I could actually see the band which is rare at most concerts because I'm so short. My boyfriend is a sucker for pictures of foot pedals and feet, but somebody yelled at him for having a camera which was weird because it was allowed. Everyone else was so mellow and unlike the other places where I've been to concerts, the place wasn't totally trashed afterwards.
We're going to see Boris there next month. I just got into them a couple months ago, but I'm excited to see them play.

Sorry I worded that all wrong.

Guys, I have periodontitis and I'm not even 30 yet. Not only do I have to be extra vigilant for the rest of my life to make sure my teeth don't fall out, I've been hemhorraging cash on all the dentist's visits. And this is after the ton I owed in taxes, not to mention an extremely costly visit to the emergency room. Man, it's a damn good thing I just picked up another freelance job to help pay for all this.
Hey, who's your dentist? I kind of need one in this town.

Dear Blog,

I am a big fan of a recording studio in Evanston, IL called Electrical Audio.

I was thinking of joining the EA forums the other day, mainly because it seems like a good place to get practical advice on recording and especially getting work in the recording industry, but from the bits I read it seems like a very hard community to really get into, and they're kind of insular. Is this true? Should I spend an awful long time lurking before trying to get into posting? Is it worth it in terms of helping me become a better engineer?

P.S; Oh shit EA got a Pro-Tools rig oh god the sky is falling

The Tech Forum is invaluable. They will answer all and any sensible questions about recording.

The other more general forums can be overwhelming at first but once you get into the swing of things, it won't seem so bad. The trick is to maintain good humour. Chances are everyone hates everything you hold dear and they won't refrain from telling you at the drop of a hat. Ignore that and you'll be fine.

By the end of the summer it's going to be a dump.

I live in a house of seasoned stoners (I'm not as enthusastic about it as them either) - it'll be fine, at some point they'll run out of money for weed, or their dealer will be out of town, and they'll suddenly feel incredibly restless and decide that all they want to do in their free time is clean as they realise how rank the place has become. Until they get hideously stoned again and it reverts back to its usual dump-like state again, that is...but it's saved me an awful lot of domestic duties  :-)

In other blog related stuff, I've just started another DJ residency in my hometown of Brighton which is awesome: I get to play whatever I'm in the mood to listen to, drink beer, chat to my mates and wander onto the beach and smoke and get paid at the end of it. I love my job.

Fists pounding. Angry screams. Name calling. Me storming out the door. A breakup? No, a meeting with my Biology teacher about my grade.F

Because of the insane amount of essays due this term/my job schedule and gigs with my band, I've kinda had to shove Biology off this term. 50-page essays on American war literature compared with world war literature are not fun. Anyway, I still handed in some assignments and studied for the tests, but didn't so so much labwork.

Then 2 weeks ago I realized I had an F. Freaking out, I did all the work on the labs I missed. Got F's on them anyway, total bullshit, 'cause he told us way back in August that there were no due dates for labs. My test average was a C, and after meeting with him I found out he completely forgot to grade half of one of my tests. He said he'll do that; I doubt it. My non-lab assignments have a 100% letter grade, so I dunno how the fuck that's not bringing up my overall percentage. Plus, I feel I did well on the final, but bet he'll throw that out the door too.

So after arguing with him angrily about this matter, I called him an incompetent jackass and stormed out the door. That won't help my grade either, I bet. So, since I've given my college permission to send grades home to my parents, I can expect a bitchfest when their A-grade student suddenly has disgraceful F for Biology. Luckily I'll be in Arizona by then, miles away from grades and college and stress and bullshit.

 I heard a pretty good argument once in the favor of ghosts existing. I don't necessarily support it, but it seems like a clever idea to me. The idea is that ghosts are real, and that they are the energy left over from the human who has died just floating around. Since energy cannot be destroyed, this seems a little bit possible.

I explained to her both Occam's Razor and Russell's Teapot*, none of which seemed to make them understand why I don't believe in ghosts. Finally, I got so annoyed I found a Lord of the Rings clip on youtube and said "Look! Hobbits! They are real!". They answered "but that's fake!", I said "prove they're not real then!" and she said "prove they are!". I asked her if she understood this was exactly the same situation as with her ghosts - and she said, "hobbits and ghosts aren't the same you idiot".

People sometimes make me mad with their sheer stupidity.

Ahahaha!  Some people just refuse to believe they may be wrong.

I find irony in the misspelling of "competent."

That aside, since it's come up here, perhaps someone can explain the following phenomena to me:

I'm a skeptic as far as the idea of ghosts and such goes (I don't really believe in angry spirits floating about, but conversely I find it hard to swallow that consciousness is a fluke of nature that just kind of ceases to exist after eighty odd years). A few years ago, an ex of mine dragged me to a local cemetery with my camcorder and we went by said cemetery with it at around eleven at night. As we passed, odd lights and weird artifacts (In video terminology, an artifact is random static or flickering) showed up. The artifacts ONLY showed up through the camcorder's LCD, but not to the naked eye (I didn't think to check the viewfinder at the time). When we went home afterward, the artifacts were nowhere to be seen upon replaying the video.

I'd assume there's some sort of scientific rationale beside this, as judging by her idea to do it, there must be prior precedence for it. Anyone able to explain it to me?
