  1. I wouldn't mind an extra hour of darkness in the morning - I'm in the office anyway so it's not like I can appreciate morning light, but it is nice to have a bit of light when I get home to walk the dog or whatever. A fair compromise for me would be as another poster above said - put the clocks back forwards earlier in the year from like late February or something.
  2. hahaha yes! Basically, for a challenge, me and my friends all had a framed picture of Putin and we had to put it somewhere in our houses and see how long it would take for our partners to notice. Once she found it, I just left it on my desk.
  3. haha no worries! Thank you for listening and I'm glad you found something in there to enjoy:) Funny enough - rap isn't something I massively enjoy listening to - I just happened to start battling for fun when I was a teenager and it kind of stuck! I'm much more into metal really and always wanted to be in a band. I grew up with all sorts including DnB and Hardcore though - Dillinja - Cybotron was a cracking album from my youth!
  4. Hi Guys, I posted this in the Covid thread a few months back, but thought I would give it it's own post. During the lockdown I decided to record and produce my first solo album in 12 years. I think it took around 2 months and I'm quite pleased with how it came out. I have been a hip-hop emcee under the pseudonym MCD since 2002 and have had several little forays into the music industry over that time receiving a commendation from MTV in 2004. I set out to make a social commentary of sorts - I wanted the album thematically to be about all the dark sides of the human psyche and the
  5. I'm 35 and at the stage now where I feel I have gotten too old and out of touch with the younger demographic. As someone who makes music (albeit electronic - I don't play any instruments, but I perform vocals and mix/master etc.) - the music today in the charts is utter low-effort garbage. Almost like the more low-effort it is, the better it will do. I feel like "mumble rap" and the over saturation of auto-tune in urban music is some joke I'm not in on and I don't understand. It has always boiled down to the same thing for me though. Radio stations and the like influence the im
  6. Going back to an earlier debate in the thread - for me, a front-loaded winter is miles better than a back-loaded one (same applies to summer). For winter, after the clocks change and halloween/bonfire night arrive, you want some atmospheric fog and crisp, cold evenings beginning to take hold. As the days are at their shortest point and for the run up to Christmas, snow, or cold, crisp and frosty weather makes it all feel wonderfully seasonal - even someone like me who hates winter would love something like that (I think 2012 was the last time anything remotely close to that happened
  7. Cold, Calm and bright please. I think I just hate wind and rain.
  8. Yep - feels positively frigid in the mornings especially.
  9. I’ve just got a feeling on my waters that we’ll have some record cold this year. Then again I’ve said that before 😂 - just please not as wet as last year!
  10. A beautiful spell of weather here comes to an end tomorrow. I will stick my neck out and say we won’t see 20+ degrees again until April 2021. I hope for everyone’s sanity we get a cold/snowy winter this year because it’s really going to be a struggle mentally with everything going on.
  11. I wouldn't mind this - but chances are it'll be wet and windy most of the time.
  12. Ahhh yes crane flies. The ones that are always flying around the kitchen with legs missing etc
  13. Yeah daddy long legs are ok, they’re just stupid and fly into your forehead and stuff. There’s just something about house spiders - their long ‘bony’ legs - eurghhhh. I’ve held a tarantula with no issues though - they’re kind of soft and furry like a hamster - so it must be something to do with the body shape that gets under my skin.
  14. It does seem to work in my experience. When I lived at home with my parents, it was an old house and I used to get big spiders in my room during the autumn. One year I put conkers around and peppermint spray I think it was and I didn’t see a single one that season. This big boy was on the back of the toilet door. Too big for me to catch on this occasion so I had to enlist my partner. She used to kill them but I’ve made her catch them humanely and put them in the garden - though on this occasion she doesn’t seem to have put it very far away from the back door.
  15. I've never loved Winter, but there are elements of it I get nostalgic for. Unfortunately, times have changed since those days and with the global pandemic, I think this winter will be extraordinarily challenging. When I think back, I think of the run-up to Christmas - gathering in the local pub with the log-fire on, everyone in Christmas jumpers with ice/fog outside and being able to see your breath in the air on a still night. I think of having a hot-chocolate or cup of tea while playing MW2 or Black Ops 1 while the snow falls outside and everyone is online. The rare sight
  16. Yes, the issue with UK winters in the south is lack of variety and basically 8 months of today's weather. Wet, dark and disgusting.
  17. Another abysmal storm season here begins to draw to a close. We seem to be back in the 2007-2012 era for storms in my location. I’m not going to pin any hope on September delivering any goods - I seem to see more lightning in December than July/August these days.
  18. And just like that - just shook out a towel to get in the shower and a decent sized blighter lands on the bathroom floor. Managed to trap him and put him in the garden though and then pegged it inside haha.
  19. Autumn is also the season of giant massive f**k-off spiders. I am absolutely petrified of spiders, but I will try and remove them humanely by trapping them in a glass (I sweat so much doing this I need a sit down after) - if it takes me by surprise though as they have a tendency to do, then all bets are off.
  20. I always find it funny when people say "just don't move" or "leave them alone" when talking about wasps. I tried the whole "don't move" thing when I had one buzzing around my face a few years back. It stung me on the neck. I knocked it to the floor and stamped on it until it resembled nothing but a stain. Awful little creatures.
