Re: Album Swap

William Onyeabor just died apparently <rose>. This is just like that time I bought a Brian Friel book for the first time and he died the next day.

Turns out there was a company reshuffle in terms of company structure and a director position was up for grabs and I wasn't even aware of it.


Good luck with your next move <ok>.

I'm just gonna put it out there and say "unforseen family circumstances" may mean "done a Keith Vaz".

Re: Album Swap

William Onyeabor is pretty cool, very Fela. Let's Fall In Love is hilarious, sounds like the f***ing Prodigy's first album when it starts off <laugh>. And that groove on Fantastic Man... damn thing just refuses to f***ing quit <parrot>.

Re: Album Swap

I'll go for the Gene Clark and the William Onyeabor! Started Clark's already now.

I'll offer you a few options as well, then. Either one of these classics: Portishead - Dummy or The Beta Band - The Three EPs.

(Edited post actually. Nobody can be arsed with that many options.)

Re: Album Swap

Sure. I won't be up much longer though, so I'd be reviewing it tomorrow. That work?

Apparently I owe you a review from two years ago as well.

Re: Pavel's eBar

To you maybe. As incredible as this may seem, I don't automatically link black people with monkeys whenever the two are in some kind of proximity. I'll be more than a bit gutted if it turns out I'm alone on that one. And lets imagine a world in which large clothes companies like H&M send out me...

Re: Pavel's eBar

I feel the utmost pity for anybody who saw that and thought it was racist. I can't imagine how difficult life must be with your head wedged so firmly up your own arsehole. It's always going to have a racist connotation though, doesn't make the advert outright racist, but it's irresponsible and inse...

I did similar a while ago. Left a big bit of flesh just flapping away, it died after a few days / weeks and went rock hard so I just chewed it off. It was like human beef jerky.

Re: The Message of Awe Thread

Just right now cut a chunk of the side of my finger almost off with a ~scalpel~, flapped it back into place before the bleeding really got into gear and wrapped a plaster around it <divadance>. So far no leakage <worried>.
