I enjoy still having a journal (mostly for my own reference, and the occasional longpost), but with the odious TOS changes and so on I've imported my LJ over to dreamwidth as that seems like a nicer place to be.

2016 in Scrobbles



So this year I listened to a LOT of 65DOS. More than usual! I think this was helped the fact that brother-Ben and myself basically stalked them around the country.

Nick Cave always scores well I think, but my grabbing "push the sky away" helped here as I initially thought it was a bit weak and thus inevitably by the end of the year I was listening to it constantly.

Surprised Bowie is as low as 3rd obviously this was a big bowie listening year. I think this is only this low because my turntable doesn't scrobble (directly).

Otherwise a bunch of usual suspects beating everything else out of the top 10.

Double bass fixage

Never LJ'd:



But my double bass is nice and fixed.

And I must once again advertise sam wells double bass repair for doing an excellent rescue job :)

Double bass trauma

Last night, in the middle of a song there was an ugly splitting sound:

2016-08-04_10-33-19

It's split at the point where it was repaired by the guy who I bought it from in Windsor, (originally "my" bass was going to be a different one, but the girl who had my actual bass dropped it and got "my one in exchange while this very repair was happening).

Fortunately I've found a guy who can look at it but there's an anxious wait before I find out if it's repairable or not :S

EU Referendum....

Oh.. Damn.

One step closer to that summit of world leaders: Trump, Boris and Putin :P

EU Referendum

Buggy polling station (EU referendum)

Today's EU referendum feels like a very "trousers of time" moment, especially with the polls so close between leave & remain. Temptation to wake up at 2AM and listen to Radio 4 to hear the results come in must be resisted!

Invasive species

We seem to have an invader...

Invasive species

Actually was one of the cats which weirdly turned up when Chi went missing but she's been getting braver. kr0n gave her food yesterday, but she's back today and trying to make herself at home. solidcat seems to be wary but not too bothered by her presence..

This cat is silly

Missing since Monday evening, and I have to say it's making me pretty miserable.
