Mother in law has been complaining about her local council, how they’re all useless, council tax is going up, and they’re talking about making general waste a three-weekly collection, etc…

They’re a majority Tory council.

She votes Tory.

I don’t have the energy for that conversation with her.

DJDarren,

It’s just so frustrating.

She maintains that “they’re all the bloody same”, and while I disagree, I think a huge part of the problem is perspective.

People seem to have it in their heads that when they vote they have the right to immediate changes. Obviously this is bullshit.

@losttourist I guess if you’re not really paying attention, they are all the same. Then you’ll continue voting for Tories and bitch and moan that nothing ever gets done.

Was thinking earlier about how many people I followed on Twitter I still see regularly on here.

About five, I think.

Kind of a shame, but hey ho. Such is life.

DJDarren,

@losttourist Yeah, same. Twitter has become just another dead forum to me.

But the people here pass muster. Barely.

A few years back I made a series of podcast/mixtapes and bunged them on Mixcloud. I was quite proud of them. Still am, as it happens.

The COVID lockdowns actually improved my social life

I live in a rural area, don't socialise locally. All my friends from my before life in London were dispersed, so my social life was after work stuff generally

Lockdown hit, so I started an online community radio show and chat group. It was wild, folks loved it. I reconnected with old friends and we talk most days now. Connections I thought I'd lost

We meet up and do shit now. Work drinks a distant memory

Thank you, whoever ate that bat

@Twoclownseating During lockdowns I met a guy on Twitter who lived near me. Like me, he had a radio degree but hadn’t been able to use it, so was pondering setting up an online station.

I ended up helping him out with it, and doing my own couple of hours a week on air. It was great.

Turns out it’s real hard work and costs a bit to do it legit, so it fell apart after a year or so. Still it was fun.

In honour of me being on a train to a fab place, amazing people and someone who totally needs a consenting glomp in 24 hrs time. Have the coolest railway song ever (sorry, Thomas the Tank Engine theme)...

Although there's also a shout out for the entire KLF "chill out" album...

@Nikkileah Many moons ago I made a podcast/mixtape about trains.

You might enjoy it on the return journey - https://www.mixcloud.com/DJDarren/podscape-1-ode-to-the-railway/

What are some that are often not considered as , but in your opinion definitely are?

Some of mine:

  • Picnic at Hanging Rock
  • The Terminator
  • Parasite
  • No Country for Old Men
  • Brimstone

@MevsMatze Yes! The Terminator is absolutely a horror movie. Which is partly why T2 was such an enormous hit. It’s a completely different movie.

What’s the oldest song that your brain has filed under “Fairly New”?

For me it’s Duran Duran - Ordinary World

Which was released in 1993…

@mxtthxw That’s her latest bop, isn’t it?

DJDarren,
@DJDarren@mendeddrum.org avatar

@george That’s not long ago. It’s fairly recent.

DJDarren,
@DJDarren@mendeddrum.org avatar

@billyjoebowers There could be something in that, actually. The other example that springs to mind for me is Blondie - Maria, which came out in ‘99, 17 years after their previous track.

Oh man, I’d forgotten just how absolutely fucking monumental Pendulum’s remix of Voodoo People is. Solid gold banger.

Got the office to myself this afternoon, so it’s the Drum n’ Bass Essentials playlist on Apple Music on my speaker and getting on with some work undistracted.

LRT: i hate cars with a burning passion, but i'd drive this wacky 2-seater from the 1980 TV movie adaptation of Ursula K. Le Guin's The Lathe of Heaven in a hearbeat if it was electric

@chibi_ou For a second there I thought it was a Bond Bug, but the Bug was a three wheeler.

Time to fess up, how do you primarily use windows in our Mac? Bonus points if you reply with a screenshot 📸

DJDarren,
@DJDarren@mendeddrum.org avatar

@rafa I have Safari, email, and Music in fullscreen. Everything else is in a pile on my desktop, like an animal.

DJDarren,
@DJDarren@mendeddrum.org avatar

@rafa Just realised, that screenshot shows a Safari window, despite me telling you I have it fullscreen. I have like three Safari windows open. One for Work tabs, one for Personal tabs, then that one for random shit I want to read.

My desktop is a mess, like me.

I've had an idea. Rather than boosting my own old posts, I should just come up with new ones that are good. Here we go!.....

@RolloTreadway @TheBreadmonkey Absolutely don’t bother.

@TheBreadmonkey Yeah, you gotta be careful with that kind of posting. You’ll end up with hundreds of people just saying “me” at you. @RolloTreadway

@Troggie My Boss. But you know all about why he’s a prick.
