  4. Things that ur happy about

    I find it really difficult to actually be exposed to such levels of miserliness. The one that drives me Bucking Bronco insane mad is when shops selling newspapers turn the papers around so that you can't read the headlines. I mean, there you are, somebody who has gone in to their shop to buy something from them. Something which you both know cost them less to buy than they are charging you. However, that's not good enough for them in that they actually want to stop you reading 'their' words on the newspaper. There is little to no doubt in my mind that the people who do this are the very personification of scum. I mean, haven't they even heard of the long term benefits of adding value to the shopping experience! lol
  5. Moving to London- Advice Needed!

    I might not be the best person to answer this but I do know the area a fair bit. Sounds like your best bet would be to look east (or northeast) from Liverpool Street. Places like Mile End, Hackney, Bethnal Green (all in zone 2). They are all very close to Liverpool Street and would be a piece of cake to jump on a tube or bus in the mornings. I think 700 is quite realistic price wise - although prices may have changed so don't quote me on it. Take a look on www.spareroom.co.uk or similar flat sharing sites. The turnover of people in house shares in London means there are always places needing the odd housemate here and there, and it's a great way to have people you know. In terms of gigs, Hackney and shoreditch will have tons of stuff on every night of the week, but everywhere is easily commutable if something further afield takes your fancy. Also: if you play sports that's a great way to meet new people, there's always tons of friendly casual or competitive teams looking for players. I used to play football over Hackney marshes, teams always looking for players.
  6. British Summer Time 2018

    Hi folks... I have a couple of question about BST.... I am thinking about travelling from Ireland to see Roger Waters in July and am weighing up the obvious expense... I have not been to BST before... My question is will it not be very bright (practically daylight) for the stage show, being mid summer and a curfew of 22.30? His show is 2.5 hours, so he'd be starting around 8pm. Also, what is the sound quality like in Hyde Park in recent years? I have heard mixed reports, with problems due to noise restrictions. I want to bring my fiance, but I really want it to be a great show for her if I do. Would really appreciate any honest advice, many thanks.

    The first house we bought had no central heating and had a hot water geyser and gas fires instead. The previous owner ripped out the hot water geyser.

    You are conveniently ignoring the backbone of his hypothetical..

    If the diagram doesn't explain the concept of energy dissipation at surfaces for you, then here's some bedtime reading for you; http://web.mit.edu/vvgroup/gconstantinides-2009.pdf

  12. Latitude 2018

    Ooooohhhhhh. Here's hoping for Festival No. 6 then. He might be a bit big for that though. Perfect for Latitude though.
  13. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I won a ticket to OMEARA's 1 year party tomorrow night, says to expect some surprises. It's the venue part owned by some of Mumford and sons, I think they played the opening night. Not too bothered about them, but wonder who they might have
  14. Festival goers needed to share their experience! (Uni Project)

    I'm a little nonplussed about your post - why don't you learn all about peoples festival experiences by reading the threads on all the different festivals on this very website? In addition, with your interior design project, can't you just use Google images of festivals / their settings etc to get your 'head around the project idea and the project design and its development'? Without us knowing the project idea, at the very least, you would appear to be just asking us to say anything, as in anything at all - as long as it's positive. Well, here's the most positive advice that I can offer - don't limit yourself to asking for only positive stories, experiences etc. How are you (as someone who, I assume, wants to go in to interior design) going to know what not to do, if you don't know what not to do? The above said, I'm still scratching my head as to how one can connect any old festival experiences or stories to interior design. And I've had a smoke - which normally allows me to see things in a way differently to that position that I would hold, had I not had a smoke.
  15. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Four Tet playing a couple of rare live shows in Feburary, will definitely be in attendance for one of those.
  16. Football 17/18

    Agreed. It is of course just the champions league equivalent of NFL's Redzone, which remains the best sports show on telly.

  18. Primavera 2018

    It's normally around the end of November I think. I'm definitely not expecting to hear anything for at least another month

    In full agreement about Sunday always being a bit crap Could interchange Ozzy with GNR.
  20. Primavera 2018

    Does anyone know when the line-up is normally announced? Want to buy a ticket at the lower price before it increases but also need to sort a place to stay too so debating on what to purchase first if I'd have time.

    Sundays are always w*nk and this ones no exception. Can't fault that prediction, though
  22. Lineup 2018

    Ah okay, fair enough. I'm talking about the festival becoming more mainstream overall, which has resulted in a decrease in more left field rock bands, rather than the increase in hip hop and grime but yeah I agree with your overall point.

    I would say it's my final prediction before the 31st but that'd just be lying hopefully we got some info beforehand from somewhere.

    Apologies - double post, because of a computer / internet malfucntion.
  25. Things that ur happy about

    I can confirm that I am not, have never been, and would never be a burglar. That said, I'd love to be a fly on the wall when one of those major 'teams' swing in and successfully (at least in the short term) burgle a major safety deposit box companies vault. I would love to see what they see, as once inside the vault, they start opening each individual safe deposit box. As an aside, it's been said that many a successful but very naughty criminal uses these safety deposit boxes. I guess if you rob some of them, then you'd be better off with the police catching you first then if they were to. Anyway, the professional interest lies in the fact that I worked as a Building Surveyor for many a year, and just thought it would be quite a tight thing to do to remove a burglar system to your new home, unless it was a wireless one. I mean, it could technically be done, if it were a hard wired system, but would, as I say, be a little bit of a tight thing to do. That said, I recently moved in to a new home (old house) and the last owner had taken all the light bulbs away.
