        Very nice HJ. I did feel this one could benefit from a vocal in places. As soaring female lead maybe or even just some more enigmatic samples would also work a treat.

        Any plans for a physical release? Or are you promoting them in any specific way to try get publishing or licensing or the like?

          Hmmm.

          I'll side with the actual law-talking guy on this one.

            It will make me think twice about releasing rats into a council office.

              Not like a human judge could ever get something wrong.

              Nothing to be gained from locking him up.

                It seems like some sort of mania overtook him because of whatever was going on in work. A bit of therapy might be the useful answer.

                        Maybe it was all the love directed towards Bat Man that drove Rat Man to therapy. The genetic lottery can be cruel.

And still hoping to sell a house/buy a fucking house in the next six months...

                            Weather has been unreal here in Galway over the last three days. Golfing and working from home are solid bedfellows. Wearing a t-shirt and getting a little colour from the sun <> late October for me.

                                              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.

                                                          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!

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

                                                                                                      Nice to see Luke Ivory involved. Man is straight as an arrow.

                                                                                                      Last time I was in the Emporium, I was dealt a tirade of abuse by a reg after getting lucky against him. 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.

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.

                                                                                                                    If my aave is safely locked away on ledger, my assumption is that it wasn't on the nessesary block to avail of the airdrop at the time.

                                                                                                                    Am I right there?

If you had the AAVE in an exchange, then the exchange would get the airdrop. Exchanges often arrange for users to receive airdrops but not always.

If you had the AAVE in an exchange, then the exchange would get the airdrop. Exchanges often arrange for users to receive airdrops but not always.
                                                                                                                        so will it turn up in my ETH wallet on ledger at some stage?
