Work, and old amplifiers. [Nov. 1st, 2003|05:06 pm]

Hmmm, been a realtively update free week that.

Well, despite the appaling start to the week, the rest of the sessions went very well. God knows what happened to me, but I went on session on Tuesday and suddenly seemeed to be 'The King Of Machines'. Almost as if I'd had some Matrix-style knowledge download. Sweet. This I feel has impressed Neil and John. Which is a good thing.
Additionally, they've just fired the secretary. After her first week. Because she was a bint and took blatently unauthorised time off. Reckon they now realise how committed I am and that not everyone of my age makes the sacrifices I have for them. So there.

Halloween partying didn't happen sadly, as I was working last night. Shame, as it;s a good opportunity to dig out the Goth tat one used to wear and remind oneself how dreadful one used to look! Amusing.

In Tottenham Court Road/Leicester square area at the moment. Came to buy some guitar strings and also was lured by a vintage WEM guitar amp for seemingly silly money. Was very much hoping that due to its vintage it would be a lovely low wattage valve amp I could drive mercilissly into distortion and maybe modify for some additional gain. As it happens they had two, but were unfortunately Solid State amplifiers. Which almost always sound like crap for guitar, especially when they are of that particular vintage (god I'm a geek). Meh.

Anyhow. Worked up a particularly grunty hunger, so am off to find some sustenance.

Oh, also had my hair cut. Grade 1 back 'n' sides, spiky on top. Nice.

Must. Use. Longer. Sentences. Yes.

Re: Little Whores on the Prairie

Hey Natalie!
Never been to moog, but aparently the guy who owns it is a bit of an EBM enthusiast.
I reckon it'll go one of two ways:

People who come along for the electro will probably also be into gnarly new-wave and punk etc. So you'll probably go down well with that crowd

People who come along because Electro is hip 'n' trendy will hate you because you're not that hip 'n' trendy (intended as a compliment by the way).

So, in hindsight, I reckon a 50/50 split. Lemme know how it goes. Would love to see you at Moog if I was in the area :( Good luck though! *hugs*

Hmmmm. Nice concept. Depends on how much it is though. Can see it being a lovely accompaniment to live Dj'ing with a laptop. If it turns out being kinda pricy though (and it looks like you need buy a dedicated piece of Dj software too) I'd much rather have a solid piece of hardware (phwar!).

Good to see you this weekend dude. Do you fancy buying some PC bits with me this weekend?
