Been working on a bit of solo piano stuff myself, so I've been checking out what else is out there, and it turns out it's a whole genre of sort of quiet melancholy piano playing on Spotify. Some of it's lovely too:
Here's one. Nothing happening except Freya Ridings's loveliness. Too hypnotised to even know if I like the song
Tempted to rip this off for the next Stoat video - could come out as unsettling or funny, either of which would be OK with me
I work for a very well-known San Francisco based non-profit (please don't say who it is, don't want this post to be too easily findable), which means I'm at the very epicentre of wokeness.
I'm 100% remote, but there are a few in-person events every year. If it's mostly Europeans (or just...
A thread for posting stupid stuff you have said all by yourself, because you're a clown
Me, just now (to Mrs. egg_): Was thinking I might pop down to Boyle's (local pub) tomorrow night, cos it's the first Wednedsay night in ages I haven't felt exhausted
I wanted to go to Despacio in London in August. Boat+train costs EUR120-odd, and I'd need to stay 2 nights. Flight costs EUR40 and I'd only need to stay one (so half the accommodation cost)
I guess I won't be going so. How the fuck are flights so cheap compared to ground transport?
A lad I worked with died suddenly a couple of weeks ago. He had some music and video equipment in his flat that his Mam back in Budapest has no interest in. Anyone know of a music school or some kind of similar thing that it could be donated to?
Anyone know anything about comics? My (almost) 10 year old (currently) wants to be a comic artist when she grows up, and wants a subscription to a marvel comic for her birthday ... I'm thinking Ms. Marvel or Champions or Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur
Any ideas where might do a subscription in...
I want a standard p-bass sound for recording. I've an old squier model knocking about, was thinking about replacing the pickups with these https://www.thomann.de/ie/fender_custom_shop_62_p_bass_pickup.htm
Good idea? Or should I just save up more money and buy a p-bass?
(FYI - this is nothing to do with Stoat. We already have a very lovely and irreplaceable drummer, as ye know)
I've been playing in a fairly informal covers band on Wednesday nights in Boyle's of Slane, and there's been a falling-out between some of the band members and the pub. It all seems...
Anyone know anything about it? I know The Wikimedia Foundation is very much opposed to it (even though there are provisions to exclude wikipedias from it) on the grounds that it's against the spirit of a free and open internet
What I'm afraid of is the 'upload filters' that Article 13 talks...
I heard this song for the first time yesterday
And I FUCKING LOVE IT
... but listening to the lyrics this guy Borgore seems like a full-bore misogynistic asshole, or at least using mysoginistic asshole-ism as a way to sell his music. But then I go and look him up and his audience seems to...
