Re: Sexism in the music industry.

I think as far as sexism in entertainment goes, there are far, far more pernicious issue at play than the one you're picking out here. Is it unfair that more socially standardized "pretty" women tend to get ahead in the industry, while those that are less conventionally attractive don't? Absolutely....

Re: The "Everything Is Shit" Thread

My grandmother died Thursday morning, early. Mom woke me up before my alarm to tell me. I won't say that Grandma and I had been particularly close the past several years, for a variety of reasons, but I was something of a pet of hers when I was young; I stayed with her the summer after my grandfathe...

Re: The I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY Thread

Just making a general comment on dating here: it pretty much blows. I don't even subject myself to "dating" per se. If I meet someone and we hit it off, fine. I'm not even 30 and I'm giving up on dating more or less. I meet people from time to time, but thus far every date I've set up or been set u...

Re: The I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY Thread

I'm getting my first tattoo tomorrow! First tattoo! Congrats! What are you getting/where are you getting it? Sadly I have nothing to add in the domain of ice skating/figure skating. I blame the fact that I've been living in Florida for 20 years--all winter-related things seem like a distant dream t...

Re: UK Arena Tour/ Meet the crowd

I'm sorry, I've been biting my tongue for days, but I have to take issue with this. Glad you did say something! But I've had people say I've ripped them off because I didn't meet them, stuff like that, and it's bullshit. Seriously? I'd just about given up on the idea of meeting you the show I went ...

Re: The I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY Thread

Although, my name and adeptness at sleeping suggests that I should probably just shut up and hibernate. That sounds like an excellent plan. Get to work on it! Predictably, I am now coming down sick with some kind of respiratory plague, too. Drinking ALL of the vitamin C in the hopes that it will ju...

Re: The I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY Thread

I do definitely have a ritual around getting ready for bed, and that does help. The only problem with listening to music is that I have synaesthesia--so listening to music is too stimulating most of the time, if I'm trying to sleep. I'll lay in bed watching the colors and patterns, feeling the heat ...

Re: The I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY Thread

Yeah, I have trouble falling asleep, and then I also wake up multiple times per night; there's this sweet spot between like 2am and 4am when I am dead to the world, but according to my lovely new fitness tracker, I get "restless" between five and fifteen times per night. And usually wake up complete...

Re: I tried this at home

In light of my New Year's Resolution to actually do something with my music other than just playing it in my room and occasionally for my friends, I thought I'd post here. I've only got two songs recorded (years ago) so far, but I am slowly accumulating enough of the right gear to record demos at ho...

Re: The I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY Thread

Going on a cruise for the annual company "holiday party," today. Never been on a cruise before, so should be interesting. Since we're only working a half day today, and since I don't have to cover the front desk, I got permission to work from home--not that I really have anything to do for the next ...

Re: The I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY Thread

Oh my lord I’m sick again Anyone think of anything I’ve missed? Any bright ideas or top tricks? Lots of garlic and ginger--both have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help speed the process of recovery. Make sure you're drinking WAY more fluids than you think you need; whenever I start gettin...

Re: The I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY Thread

Also, public transport is shit That it is. I managed to live without a car until about the age of maybe about 23 or 24, and South Florida public transportation is AWFUL.
