                  I'd imagine he shot the 1st person then thought WTF are these bullets real ? Then shot the 2nd person to be sure the 1st one wasnt messing with him .

                      This current cold going around is just brutal. Think the dobbsmaster was mentioning it earlier in the week also. Seems way worse than regular colds, but maybe I've just forgotten what regular colds are like.

                        watched titane yesterday. Winner of the palme d'or this year, it's from the same director who did "raw" a few years back, and she stayed in the same "what the actual fuck did i just watch" mode. Beautifully shot, but mother of god, what a cluster fuck. Loved it!!!

                          The firearms used on film set are often real firearms. Especially those that have to cycle and fire in up close shots.
                          The obvious example being Brandon Lee shot on the set of The Crow.

                            Felt worse than what I remember definitely but maybe that's cos I haven't even had a sniffle since 2019 now. Was 3 days of constant runny nose and a small headache. Thankfully all subsided about Wednesday evening and feel 100% now again. Even managed to play a full match last night that was very physical so definitely back to normal.

                              Any plans for a physical release? Or are you promoting them in any specific way to try get publishing or licensing or the like?
                              That's interesting, I didn't even consider a vocal but I can see how it could work!

                              I do plan on a physical release, but not for a while. I have a lot of music to release over the next few months, I fell out with about a couple of mixing engineers so I'm just working on the mixing and mastering process now.

                              The only promotion I'm doing currently is trying to get the songs onto blogs and playlists, with some success. I do plan to do more, but not for a while. I feel like every release is a lot better than the last, so I'm happy to wait for a while. I have an EP coming out soon with a singer that I think deserves promotion more than this batch!

                                  Today's interesting fact - The U.S. entered a naval war in 1941-42 without working torpedoes and didn't even realize that the torpedoes didn't work until 1943.

                                                About a month ago, a fairly big customer of ours asked me to give a presentation to their industry body about what happening in the market. It was a win/win. Customer got internal credit for bringing in the experts, we scored brownie points with the customer and got access to potential new business.

                                                Following on from that, we discovered that the industry body runs a trade magazine. Not for sale in shops but goes to hundreds of their members 6 times a year so they asked me to pen an article for them. Just shy of 1,300 words submitted and accepted and they were very happy with it. They then asked me for a profile pic which I sent but came back and asked for another one with higher resolution which I also sent and their response was ' Great, that will work perfect for the article and the cover of the magazine'

                                                I'm presuming that I will be a small picture in the bottom left corner of the cover page and not THE cover page - unless of course, they are trying to up their female readership


                                                They also now want me to be a guest speaker at their annual expo in the RDS next month

                                                I may have to get the building facilities people in to widen the door to my office...

                                                            Let me know if you have any questions about it.
                                                            I’m guessing I missed that. Other airdrops planned?

It was the worst verbal abuse I've ever had directed at me and went on for about 2mins straight. So I got up with my 800 quid and walked out the door. Didnt want to complain or make a scene as I'd had a few drinks and didnt want it to seem like I was just drunk.

                                                                          Will happily give it another spin with Luke on board anyway.

                                                                                    I see the Dublin Bus (and Luas and Dart?) 90-minute fare is starting next month. Such a better idea. You no longer need to say where you are going - every ticket is a 90 minute ticket. Unlimited travel as long as you get on the transport option before the 90 minutes is up. Think its going to be about €2.50.

                                                                                    Then under 25s get half price travel (irrespective of being a student or working), so they can travel wherever they want for €1.25. Its a genuine gamechanger. Public transport will finally be cheaper than driving. Except for families, where the car is still vastly cheaper.

We're going to need a bigger loan if thats what a single wall costs to change! ffs.

Live in it, figure it out, then start doing your bits of work. You'll figure out what to do and what to prioritise.

Got a quote for €6,800 plus VAT (so, €8,500, I guess). Is that madness, or just the way it is? Thats for knocking down the wall, putting in a steel beam, replastering. We're going to need a bigger loan if thats what a single wall costs to change! ffs.

Live in it, figure it out, then start doing your bits of work. You'll figure out what to do and what to prioritise.
