Re: what city you live in, do you like it, why or why not..

I live in Wellington, New Zealand. The good: Great electronic music scene (mostly Drum and Bass, Dubstep, House, no real Techno. No real Techno scene in NZ really...). Great general music scene (dub/soul/funk/jazz in particular). Lots of arty stuff. Home of Peter Jackson and Weta studios. Big enough...

Re: You know whats wrong with music today? I'll tel you:

Not enough PSP Vintage Warmer 'I just mastered this myself at home!'. Not enough people that haven't finished a single track telling everyone they're 'producers' and asking to remix your songs. Not enough loudness. Over compressed tracks being redlined on a mixer then smashed through a club PA's lim...

Re: why do I dislike every lyric I write

Write down your 'retarded' lyrics then just try and say the same thing in a different way. Just having something to start with is a major step. Barely anyone uses the first version of their lyrics. Use a thesaurus to swap out words if you're stuck and those rhyming dictionaries (google it) you can g...

Re: OT Guitar Rising - Guitar Hero for real guitar

I always laugh at the musicians that get all uptight about Guitar Hero. 'It's not real guitar!'. No it's not, it's a game. I game where you can pretend you can play guitar. Like when you're a kid and you jumped around playing the tennis racquet before you went and got a guitar. :lol: I live in a hou...

Re: OT - So what movie/DVD is a must see?

I watched 'Sympathy for Mr Vengeance' the other night. Not for faint of heart but my jaw was dropped the whole time. Loved it. Basically no soundtrack at all too which just adds to the crazy vibe.

Re: how to get that sound

I've been making tunes for years and I'm only really just starting to get closer to the 'pro sound' I'm after (doesn't mean my actual tracks are 'pro' yet tho of course :lol: ). There's not really any big things I've learnt that help, it's all just millions of little things and training your ears to...

Re: OT: meat is Murder

If you ever remember the title, I would be interested in reading your geeky, scientific perspective, book. I got it from the library so next time I'm there I'll have a look around. :) Edit/addition: Random addition regarding the changing of your taste in food. When I was 18 I wondered if we have ki...

Re: OT: meat is Murder

I eat meat but refuse to eat/support factory farming of animals. This basically means that most people think I'm a vegetarian and I've had to pretty much give up my favorite food (chicken). Good thing I've always loved veges. :) I read a book about 3 years ago on globalization (I forget the title). ...

Re: OT: Swine Flu Pandemic

To maybe balance out the stories I thought I'd add that I had Swine Flu a few weeks ago. Was just like the 'normal' flu and I got better after maybe 10 days. Stuck around for quite a while but wasn't too bad for me. I know a few other people that got it, some got better in a couple of days, some wer...

Write her some nice little 2 minute song. Make the song only for her and not just part of the next club smash hit you're working on or whatever. I've done this a few times when there's been issues over music gear and it works wonders. It's hard for someone to be angry at you when you've just used th...
