So I’ve now got this much music tagged “African” in my iTunes collection but Apple’s ‘genius mixes’ aint having it. Sheesh.

Is annoying, I keep on deleting the frigging iTunes ‘Genius’ preference file from my iTunes folder to force Apple people to rescan my shit in the hope it’ll give me an African music folder. And it never ever ever does despite my having loads & loads & loads of African music in my collection.
Even if it gave me a “World Music” folder I wouldn’t mind. But it doesn’t. Ever.
Still, that’s nowt compared to the fact that there’s no contemporary hardcore folder. Or old hardcore for that matter.
HARDCORE FFS must be my most listened to genre ever just about.
Apple are weird.
Woo, what a cracking night that was. The Crazylegs crew sure now what they’re doing. I’d been on an acquaintance’s ‘stag do’ before going down so was five pints down when I got there. It was a long, really fast downhill cycle ride to Stokes Croft from Clifton.
Fuckers took my bottle of water on the door but other than that I’m in love with Take Five Cafe as a venue. Basement style grotto’s rule. Really hope when the live music bill gets enacted they have shows down here.
This one’s been ten years in the making. We bring you a trio of DJs you never thought you’d see on a lineup together in 2012. Three artists whose seminal productions set the template for three of the most vital movements in the UK’s underground: grime, bassline and funky.
With only room for 100 people this was one intimate setting for one hec of a great night of innovators, experimenters & groundbreakers in the electronic music field. Sometimes 5 hours dancing is just the fucking ticket.
There was this girl there who I usually only see at heavy relentless noiserock bands (e.g. Arabrot & Flipper this year). Shortish, black bob, possibly Irish, often wears an animal hat (mebe lion) AND I once began talking to her at the bar at Arnolfini when King Midas Sound were playing & got the most massive “fuck, who’s this loser hitting on me & how do i get of him?” look I’ve ever received from anyone. In fact I completely resolved after that never to talk to single women at shows again. It’s like ffs, you can tell I’m not hitting on you coz I’m talking to you & EVERYONE knows that I can’t actually talk to girls I find attractive. Dunno if it’s high self esteem on their part (“I’m so beautiful this guy talking to me must be hitting on me”) or low self esteem (“there can’t be any reason anyone would want to talk to me other than to get between my legs”). Whatever, it fucking blows.
Was taking a brief time out from dancing around 3am, sat in the comfy seats upstairs, bag next to me. Suddenly some dude siddles up to my bag, picks it up & starts walking off with it. I just sighed, got up, went up to him, shook my head & took the bag off him. Then he apologised and I shook my head again. Then his mate shook his head at me while gesturing at his mate & I shook my head back at his mate. Quite a sequence of head shaking.
Apart from that a good crowd (totally lacking in students - result) & some of the best pumping, jacking decksmiths in the business, always fascinating watching these guys spinning their wax.
Needless to say the white isn’t so white any more but when I first got my fixie it looked like this. If you gotta have a thing it may as well be as beautiful looking a thing as possible I reckon. Same reason I buy shit. I don’t care if other phones have the same performance specs they don’t look as nice as an iPhone. Even if I didn’t jailbreak I’d probably still use an iPhone.
Been a long time user & endorser of all the iPhone jailbreaking software. It’s free & legal & most importantly pisses off.
Basically it’s about maximising your phones potential but it’s also about ownership. If you bought a new car the dealer wouldn’t be able to tell you not to fiddle under your bonnet so how come think they have the right to lock down each iphone’s ‘engine’.
Granted jailbreaking has it’s shadow side, a couple of times now my phone’s been bricked & I’ve had to do a clean install, but generally speaking the pro’s far outweigh the con’s imo.
This video show’s you a small selection of the tweaks & hacks you can use to get the most out of an iPhone. Not sure what the point is of having the woman in her skanties at the end but that’s probably geeks for you. Gotta get their thrills somewhere.
