    Everyone over 30 is racist

    It's odd because I definitely think that, in everyday life, you actually earn more respect from people by admitting your weaknesses and mistakes and putting them right than you do by doubling down on them. Whether it's with friends or at work or whatever else, I've found that best thing you can...

    Everyone over 30 is racist

    yeah you only have to look at the history of terms we used before "learning difficulties" to see how this plays out, time and time again.

    Everyone over 30 is racist

    So many people instinctively react with horror upon being accused of bigotry and prejudice because we all like to think of ourselves as good people and it's natural to want to defend your own self-conceptualisation. Nobody sets out to be the villain in any story. I wish there was a way to...

    House tunes that UK funky showed us were not boring

    I got the promo CD single of "In The Morning" a few weeks ago, it was £5 which isn't a lot of money really - but more than you would expect for a flimsy promo of a song released in the digital era.

    Dissensus Raw: The Compilation - A Thread

    I don't mean to seem hyper-critical or comandeering! Everything so far has been excellent and tbh is giving me performance anxiety about my own intended submission. When I was at uni doing "peer assessment" and we had to critique each other's writing work, what would happen is six people would...

    I know the feeling - until something is uploaded and available I don't feel it is out of my hands and so can constantly be tinkered with. I can fill an A4 page of notes and ideas on every playthrough of a four-minute demo of my own. And then the next time my notes are 50% "undo that change it...

    this is really good - rhythmically propulsive, great interplay between the piano chords and guitar blasts, and the flash of change in melody at ~2m20. I like the vocal sample but how would the intro sound if you just kept it as instruments until the drums kicked in? I think it sounds fine as it...

    I think the people who do care wouldn't be surprised, this isn't likely to change anyone's feelings on him and what he represents.

    @Dusty I'd love to hear another minute of that and a slower fade-out. I love how static and still it feels despite being twitchy and rich with melody. (Melody isn't maybe the right word, but those high-freq drones are a lot more musical than stuff adjacent to this tends to be)
