    Nice! I've been reconnecting with some old friends and being more sociable myself. I have no problem hanging out with myself and not having a life, because I am a bit of a lone wolf type, but it's good not to turn into a total hermit. I do a lot of walking, hiking and cycling, but I really need to get fit myself as well. I've got a few things I need to work on. ;) Anyway, thanks for stopping by the group. I know you're a busy man, but we do miss you!

    So, I totally forgot about Schroedinger's Tampon until just now. How I managed to forget, I haven't the slightest, but I vow to never forget again! xD MAN, I've missed this place... And you!

    Well cowboy, everybody is someone's weirdo! Do you spend a lot of time at a desk? Improving your posture can ease back pain a lot. I had lower back pain a few years ago, and found that walking with hands clasped and resting in the small of my back pulled my shoulders back and straightened my spine. It helped the pain a lot. But if you have an injury obviously don't take my advice! I hope you feel better soon. :)

    Well, I'm afraid to say a *lack* of sleep and tramadol aren't two things that usually feature in the same sentence, so this is only adding to your weirdness. ;P Bad back or plague? Oh well that's good, (the not disappointing you bit, not having the plague). I tend to listen to a lot of artist stations. It's been The Disturbed radio the last few days.

    Hi Lee, thanks for the shout. I agree, you are indeed weird. Do you mean 'The Upstairs Room' by The Cure? I assume that's what you're talking about, but it was Danica that submitted it to the 100 list, not me. However, I am honoured to have you grace my profile page. :D I'm not a big Cure listener myself, I've only scrobbled them 11 times and 'The Upstairs Room' is not a track I knew prior to the list. I quite like The Birthday Massacre though, their Cure influence is easy to hear.

    Miss Nu is so so ready to be on holiday! My weekends are spent soaking up the sun and lounging from one end of the pool to the other :D and most of my week trying not to slap the men in my office silly! You've reminded me to check out the bands lined up to perform at Kirstenbosch Gardens with your talk of bands! :D go you!

    hahaha..indeed. Massages freak me out.....and no SADPANDA! I could sing for you while you're having your massage though....lol...we'll just pretend I have the coolest singing voice EVAR! :P It would be pretty hard to dance as a cupcake but I don't care because I LOVE CUPCAKES!

    octobre 2012
  • NuNu160

    Thanks to your awesome pics...I want to dress up as a cupcake and have a party tooooo! :)

  • NuNu160

    oh yes! You're the one to be hanging out with come beginning of November then! :DD I don't need my hair hacked off though, or a shave...and well i don't do the massage thing either so I'll skip those but for all other activities I'd love to be there all bells and whistles hahaha. Sounds like a it's going to be awesome. I am loving the beach :) been spending alot of time out Seapoint and Camps Bay area. I often forget how lovely Cape Town is and it's nice to go out and see some of the places again :) I've had yoghurt pudding...at 23h30...I'm so bad! hahaha hope you're having an awesome weekend :))

  • NuNu160

    I hope it's not going to be difficult for everyone else to top the awesome birthday present you've managed to secure for yourself there! :D LOL...never thought of it like that before...at least I'm getting paid to deal with dimwits...I will now though. At least it'll keep my hand from itching to slap them upside the head. You can have my food....but you'll have to let me have some cupcakes then!

    octobre 2012
  • NuNu160

    CONGRATS!!! :DDDD When do join me in my misery? Getting up early, trekking to work in the dark and cold and dealing with dimwits all day....oh happy days :DD And my tramezzini was amazing. I'm about to kill a Kauai TexMex Tomato Salsa on wholewheat now though.

    octobre 2012
  • NuNu160

    I had a sweet chilli chicken, carmelised onion and avo tramezzini for lunch! I'll take your tuna and cheese sandwich though without the mayo, thank you...I'll need a midnight snack. My diet has gone to hell today.

    octobre 2012
  • NuNu160

    Lucky pants AND socks? How can the universe deny you your misery then. Glad to hear it went well :DD Hope you hear from them soon soon. While you're waiting though...what's for lunch because I'm starving.

    octobre 2012
  • NuNu160

    Luck Luck today :) I hope you're wearing your lucky pants!

  • NuNu160

    Power naps Lee....power naps! Although how you'd manage that with painkillers I don't know because almost everything knocks me out. Misery loves company :D I've been trying to go on holiday since December last year....hahaha....I suck at it. I do have a whole week off next week and then 4 weeks in December/Jan....I cannot wait.

    octobre 2012
  • NuNu160

    I'd be buzzing on painkillers if I were you....I have the suckiest pain threshold ever! So you'll be joining me having to trek to work in the mornings soon....this pleases me. I'd love it like a hole in the head hahaha

    octobre 2012

    busy bee :) but summer's coming so I'd rather be busy now than when I'm on holiday. How are things going up there?

    2 freebie AP tracks on her website by the way. I'm not sure if it's all a bit too poppie actually. I think I need more time.

    Hope you had fun at your braai. :) Did you enjoy the Rugby yesterday? I know I did. :3 Good luck with the job hunting....hope you won't be hunting too long.

    of course not! I'm not mean! I have been frequenting Stellenbosch though and the crappy weather is still there :( so someone else is sending it your way. How is everything in your world going dear sir?

    I want cakies.....please! :D How are you doing dear Sir? Have you found the opportune moment for total office domination yet? :P

    Ah, Can and GB!YE are two favourites - I love my Krautrock and my 'post' (another strange term!) rock. :) Thank you for the recommendation of Kyuss, and for listing those other acts. I'll be sure to check them out - it's been a while since I've done some proper research into unfamiliar music.

    mai 2012
  • monkkuapina

    No, really! Well actually I can't say that I recall seeing anyone else listening to them either. Nothing to complain about the rest of your music taste either - cheers!

    mai 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    Certainly not a cop-out - the lines are a bit blurred! I'm not really sure how I'd define 'progressive' personally - I just have a working definition of 'Any Popular Music That's Normally Regarded As Being Pretentious'. :P You mention that you like a few artists that may or may not be defined as being 'progressive' - any particularly prominent figures there?

    mai 2012
  • NuNu160

    Oh awwwweeesome!!! :D Glad to hear you’re sharing my pain having to trek to work in the cold mornings….I’m always such a grumpy pants in the morning. Are you settling in nicely? Total domination is what we aim for Mr Polar Bear! :) Our weather sounds about the same….which suuuucks!

    avril 2012
  • NuNu160

    Goood Morning! I hope you haven't forgotten your friend down at the bottom of the planet! the friend whose sunshine you are stealing! :( You'll be glad to know that I am starting to bake my own cupcakes on a fairly regular basis....well when i'm not consumed with work that is! pretty soons I'll have the decorating down too! Hope things are good with you sunshine?

    avril 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    Good choices, particularly the Genesis/Gabriel. I've never listened to prog metal, though - I have something of a prejudice against metal, sadly. :P Any artists you'd recommend aside from the ones you've mentioned?

    avril 2012
  • amycrd

    Just wanted to clarify......."sordid" is completely the wrong adjective to use in relation to Olly Murs....... :p

    avril 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    Ah, am I right in assuming that you're quite a prog fan in general? If so, are there any particular artists or album that you're fond of? Sounds like an interesting field of work, certainly - hope all goes smoothly. :)

    avril 2012
  • Great_listener

    One of us bugged out the Cat thread I think. I'm gonna blame you with all your wood pictures. Hope that's ok. :)

    avril 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    I'm quite well, thanks - the written portion of my English coursework is complete, which makes me a very happy bunny. ;P I decided to celebrate the occasion by blowing some of my savings on prog rock albums and spending several days living on chocolate muffins - great fun at first, but today's headache has hampered my efforts somewhat. Good to hear you've been well. :) What sort of work is it you're involved in at the moment? Is it a contract-type thing?

    avril 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    Oh, best wishes regarding the bike. ;P I'm hopeless with those too - I'm pretty much incapable of keeping the thing upright. :P Haha, railway-inspired literature is a rare find, sadly - the closest thing I've ever found is John Betjeman.

    mars 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    Why, that sounds manageable enough to appeal even to me. ;P I suppose it would ultimately be in my best interests to put together an exercise regime that involved something other than the occasional stroll - I just tend to avoid it as a result of being a) lazy, and b) ungraceful. :P Still, there has to be something other than running - if my friends and relations saw me jogging around the town, they'd probably think I was having some kind of emotional crisis. ;P Haha, I don't mind English at all as a subject - existential/airy-fairy elements can occasionally be a welcome break from all the regularity and predictability of rail classification systems. ;) I just doubt I could manage the sort of focus that would be required to study it successfully at university level: I'm not passionate enough about the subject to turn it into a career, and as a result there'd be no obvious work-related incentive to keep me going.

    mars 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    Ah, well, I hope you succeed in attracting potential employers and thwarting the dastardly estate developers, in that case. ;) Never one for running, personally, unless it has some obvious and immediate benefit (e.g. enabling me to catch a bus). Far too undignified, I fear. ;P I'm studying English at the moment - soon to be moving on to other things, though. Not something I'd really want to pursue to a higher level, I think. Still, it checks a box. :P

    mars 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    Quite alright! One would be correct. :) Busy, though - final assessments for my course are keeping me busy. How about you?

    mars 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    I see! Well, I don't really have much knowledge about reggae subgenres other than roots reggae and dub - and even with them, it's a fairly sketchy overview. But I'll try. ;) With regards to roots reggae, there's the obvious example of Bob Marley and the Wailers - Catch a Fire is a favourite album of theirs. I also like Peter Tosh, a member of the Wailers and a successful solo artist in his own right - Equal Rights and Legalize It are two great albums of his. With regards to dub, some personal favourites are Keith Hudson (a sort of precursor to dub), Augustus Pablo (roots reggae artist who went on to do some notable dub records), King Tubby, Scientist and Mad Professor. Regarding albums, I'd recommend Rockers Meets King Tubby in a Firehouse (King Tubby/Augustus Pablo collab.), Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires (Scientist), and The African Connection (Mad Professor). There's also Lee 'Scratch' Perry, of course, but I'm not as familiar with his work.

    mars 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    Ah, 'Inertia' - a favourite of mine. My favourite off the Mezzanine album, in fact, along with 'Black Milk' and the title track. Blue Lines really does it for me than any other Massive Attack album, though - the tracks 'Safe from Harm' and 'Five Man Army' approach perfection, in my view. On the subject of Blue Lines, are you much of a fan of old-school reggae and dub? Hehe, 'melancholy and sinister' is always a quality worth seeking in music! :P Portishead isn't usually my first choice for my 'melancholy and sinister' fix, though - for that purpose, I'm usually more likely to turn to Scott Walker's Tilt album!

    mars 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    The Straight out the Jungle album is worth buying - a very impressive debut. Aside from that, the only one I'm really familiar with is Done by the Forces of Nature. Definitely to be recommended, I'd say - it's my favourite out of the two, and it's widely seen as a classic. :) Ah, Portishead's work is wonderful - they'd rank among Massive Attack and DJ Shadow as one of my favourite artists/groups on the trip hop scene. :) Any particular favourite tracks/albums of Portishead's, Massive Attack's, or DJ Shadow's? Not terribly familiar with Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, sadly - anything you'd recommend as a good starting point?

    mars 2012
  • FarqyofFib

    De La Soul tend to go down very well with me. ;P You wouldn't happen to be a Jungle Brothers fan, would you? DJ Shadow is another excellent choice - I'm generally more drawn towards experimental hip hop artists in his sort of vein (e.g., Tricky of Massive Attack, Gonjasufi) than I am towards old-school hip hop. M.I.A is another interesting figure on the hiphop scene - her music should be my sort of thing, in theory, but I've never really taken the time to investigate. Haha, I'm guessing you're referring to Talkie Walkie? I've never been as fond of that as I am of Moon Safari, but there are some standout tracks - 'Mike Mills' as you mentioned, as well as 'Alpha Beta Gaga', 'Run' and 'Alone in Kyoto'. :) As for the recent strangeness: money worries, feuds amongst my extended family, a terrible sleeping pattern... they tend to take their toll, sadly!
