Re: Maps - glorious maps

These live maps of CYBER-ATTACKS are really cool in a slightly terrifying, Wargames sort of way:

I managed a couple more before crashing out. #14 and #48 made me smile.

Re: Something for the weekend: Cryptic POP!

I think I've got just over half of them, but I'm really struggling now. The anagram ones are particularly tricky!

Got: 1, 3, 4, 6 - 11, 13, 16, 18, 19, 21-23, 25, 27, 31, 34, 38, 39, 41-43, 47, 50.

Edit: Just got #2 as well.

Re: Music small talk, music big talk

I got Belle & Sebastian. Hmm, I was hoping to get Neutral Milk Hotel, I knew I shouldn't have picked that strange cartoon character girl playing a guitar, I don't even know what cartoon she springs from. I now expect a storm of disapprobation from anorakers in the know. That's Marceline from Advent...

I did quite enjoy that song. Fair play, Buzzfeed survey.

Re: Monkey Swallows the Universe - Sheffield 27/3/16

I watched it earlier and loved it! The new version of the song sounds great, too. Somehow I don't think I'd seen the You Can Call Me Al video before, so I watched it afterwards, and from my perspective, those guys TOTALLY ripped you off. Plus, the little "toss and place" is way more impressive with ...

Re: Windows 8/Windows 10

I'd upgrade to Windows 10 but I think I'd miss that window that pops up every day encouraging me to upgrade to Windows 10. I've come to love that little guy.

Re: Robot Wars is back!

A friend of mine went to a Robot Wars filming, years ago, and was seated next to an excitable child and his father. He reported that at one point, the child was so over-excited that the father had to ask him to calm down by saying "CEASE, JULIAN" in a Robot Wars voice.

Re: So how do you listen to music now?

I listen to CDs in the car, mp3s at work and nowadays it seems I mostly have the radio on when I want some music at home. 6music plays enough good stuff that I rarely get annoyed with it. I've noticed that my favourite albums at the end of the year tend to be the ones that I've downloaded (from band...

I've never received anything from radio play. I've tried, but been bamboozled at all corners.

Re: PRS and publishing and things like that

I just got my first ever PRS payment!

£2.87, for playing at Indietracks two and a half years ago.

The system works!

edit: apparently this wasn't my first, because I posted earlier in this thread about how I'd previously received a small amount... for the exact same performance!?

Re: Records of 2015

I pretty much stopped listening to the first Trust Fund album when the second one came out (temporarily, I'm sure), but I still have 'Cut Me Out' stuck in my head about 96% of the time. Chants For Socialists is probably my favourite of the three (or four, if you include the dub version) albums Darre...
