He would be if he was a footballer (Welsh father) but I take your point.

Mith-I'm so sorry about your dog. I know how that feels lately and it's no fun.

Anyway i thought since the olympics are now over and i ahve a little more time, i should come back here. I was reminded of all this when i saw all the beatles references in the closing ceremonies. Did any of you see them? How is everyone? Wow it's hard to use this site on a smartphone...

Jet - believe me, you get used to using the site on phones (or iPods, as in my case). And anyways, Joe's working on something, I believe.
Anyways, all's fine in Canada, and actually, I'm going (back) out of town tomorrow, so I'll be quiet for a couple of days.
Edit: Welcome back, of course. I'm so tired I forgot to say it.

Thank you, it's good to see you guys too! I missed it here. It's been a busy summer and it's time to get back in the groove. I hope I get used to the smartphone thing, but for now I'll use my computer. much easier.

My iPod has mercifully died. I`m trying to save it, but I might just use it as a sign I need a smartphone.

I refuse to get a smartphone. Too many I people I know live out of their flashy phones, everything they could possibly need in a little box of bloody circuitry. No wonder it seems people are getting stupider... not too long ago you had to ask someone or go read a book to find something out, but now all the information you could possibly ever need is at your fingertips. I know the leap in technology in the last ten years has been amazing but it does make me worry for the future of the human race- where's the non-material ambition gone?

Sorry, work's stalled. I need a new banner and to get the bloody thing to work in Internet Explorer. Apart from those things the redesign is good to go.

We should probably have a RIP thread. One of my best friends, who I knew for over 15 years, died last week in a road accident. I have to give a speech at his funeral on Monday, and I *hate* doing public speaking. At the moment I'm alternating between "I miss you, you bastard," and "You made me do a speech, you bastard".

On the plus side, the latest issue of Kerrang! magazine is dedicated to him, which he'd have loved.

So no work on the site or the book for a while.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8My condolences to you and his family. I'm sure you'll do him justice on Monday. I'd say break a leg, but it seems too ironic.

Sorry to hear the bad news Joe; you're friends death and the public speaking.

 

As for smartphones i have 1, detest it immensly, and hardly ever use it. Its an HTC (was given it) and its a nightmare to navigate, nothing is where its easy to access just endless menus in menus. Plus there is a drag down notice thing which is a pain to drag down, you can spend 5 minutes just trying to pull it down.  Recently had to do updates to its software and i had to do 1 at a time.  The biggest annoyance tho is that the worst thing to use on it is the phone - I ONLY WANT THE PHONE PART.blue-meanie Give me an ipod anytime and forget the whole mobile phone thing.

 

There is this idea help in society where you have to be a part of everything; twitter, facebook and whatever else is out there. Everyone has to be contactable and plugged in and if youre not then youre weird. People you've never heard of wanting you to like them so they can say they have 200,000,000,000 likes. Get lost.

 

Plus the whole world of compensation and free money. So far this week ive been informed i'm due a pay out from a car accident i was in (never been in one), due a large repayment on a loan i took out in 2004 (never had a loan), been told via telephone my computer is infected by virus's (no its not and even if it was i wouldnt want them to know or go near it), and some multi-billionaire wants me to send my bank details to him as he is near death and doesnt want the money to go elsewhere.

My condolences about your friend, Joe - if he'd contributed to Kerrang or other metal magazines years ago, it's conceivable I'd be acquainted with his writing.

Haven't got a smartphone & don't want one. (I generally hate STUPID phones too, for that matter!) Don't like touch screens, can't stand not being able to use my hard-earned typing skills. (Incidentally, I sent my first-ever text-messages just 10 days ago, hope I didn't already mention it on this thread.)

I like the way you think, meanMr.M - will you be facebook friends with me? (That's a joke!)

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

An example of the attitude re social networking was on The One Show tonight when Donnie Osmond was amazed that Matt Baker wasnt on Twitter since its 2012!

And can we please get rid of this false humanity angle that has began to dominate every single thing in modern life. No matter what noways, be it sport, news, music whatever, everything comes with its own triumphant angle - overcoming the odds to achieve. Someone picks up the newpaper and its a massive achievement as when they were 3 they dropped a copy of the Sun in a puddle.  I hate where the mainstream media is taking us, everything and everybody exploited for some cheap short-term effect which is soon forgotten about for the next.

 

Apologies for the ranting but the way the world operates bugs me. So that i get away with it and those people can have their latest fill of a sob story I sprained my knee and it will take 6 - 8 weeks to recover. Its taking an hour to walk what would normally be 40 mins.
