You know... just because.

A sense of calm has now overcome me.

M Grout (Mark Grout), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 14:09 (fourteen years ago) link

Yes, but when there is no ILX, and no Watercooler, then that NOTHING is *really* a problem for me!

You had fun on our replacement at Last FM

Im not giving up on it. I'm posting there too.

I can't handle several different places to check. We need to have a concensus on where we should be posting.

I need more places to consume my brain and keep it from consuming itself. I like this better than last.fm because it takes me to the unread messages.

Though I kinda miss my avatar... Sigh.

Never offer unsolicited advice. You'll only end up pissing both advisee and advisor off.

"Helpful people are a nuisance." -- R. Fripp

William Crump (Rock Hardy), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 15:22 (fourteen years ago) link

But, isn't that offering unsolicited advice, Kate? ;-)

M White, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 15:24 (fourteen years ago) link

When you've been through a certain dilemma yourself, the temptation is to share your solution, in the hope that you can make it easier for the other person.

But whatever. Some people have to discover things for themselves - and if they never discover it, they're just going to carry on being frustrated and miserable.

masonic boom (kate), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 15:25 (fourteen years ago) link

(I know, just as many people could say that to me, about other things.)

I suppose it's just because the subject being discussed was something so close to mine own heart. It's impossible for me to be objective.

masonic boom (kate), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 15:28 (fourteen years ago) link

Mere jest, of course. I mostly agree with you on the subject of unsolicited advice. Unsolicited cash, otoh...

M White, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 15:29 (fourteen years ago) link

When you've been through a certain dilemma yourself, the temptation is to share your solution, in the hope that you can make it easier for the other person.

I find that often when I do this, the other person will reply: "No, but it's like this (minor circumstantial difference) for me, not like that," not willing to take any wisdom from my offering.

g00blar, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 15:31 (fourteen years ago) link

It's not even like that... it's just this person insists that they have a different *reason* d'etre in the first place. One that I have found to be totally wrong-headed and leading to trouble in the first place.

She thinks "K is like this, I'm not like this, I'm like that." When what I'm trying to say is "I used to be like that, and it did me great damage and caused me great angst until I learned how to be this"

Maybe it just comes down to reasons why people make music, and create in the first place... which I guess is something pretty personal and not really open for debate anyway.

masonic boom (kate), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 15:35 (fourteen years ago) link

I mean, that would be a question for I Make Music, if and when it comes back up.

*Why* do you make music? For personal fulfillment, for acclaim from others, to attract a specific audience?

When you write, do you have an audience (potential or actual) in mind, or do you just write what comes to you?

If you could look into the future, and find out for certain, that you will never actually "make it" in the music biz, that you will never actually get any further than whatever (small or otherwise) standing/success/lack thereof you have now, would you continue to do it? Would you do it differently? Would you just quit?

masonic boom (kate), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 15:56 (fourteen years ago) link

Wouldn't you just keep making music because you like it and believe what you're doing anyway is good?
I couldn't see you giving up music no matter what you saw happening in the future.

pfunkboy (Kerr), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:11 (fourteen years ago) link

I think that's the most important thing of all. Personally, I think that if the answer to that question is "no" then really, you have no business making music in the first place, because you're making it for all the wrong reasons.

I mean, maybe that sounds harsh, but you know, thinking about what kind of *audience* you want, and then backtracking to what kind of music you want to make... to me, that just seems ass backwards, and wrongheaded.

masonic boom (kate), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:13 (fourteen years ago) link

Or just something else, some other kind of pursuit that's not 'music'. More like entrepenurialship or advertising. Like, I don't really feel threatened or betrayed by the dudes who came up with crazy frog. It's a whole other discipline--they saw a business opportunity and jumped at it. Same with Keane.

g00blar, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:16 (fourteen years ago) link

I agree completely with you Kate.

Momus, Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:17 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm not threatened. It's just... if your answer to that question is "no" then you don't really want to be a musician, you want to be a Pop Star. Go do something else with your life to get the attention, go be on Big Brother or whatever.

masonic boom (kate), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:18 (fourteen years ago) link

I think you're on the wrong thread, Nick. Nabisco didn't post anything here yet! Or are you just being preemptive?

masonic boom (kate), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:19 (fourteen years ago) link

Agreed. Not implying you were threatened, just trying to work out why I'm not as bothered by such people as I used to be. But clearly you were talking specifically about a friend and not some abstract crazy frog mastermind.

ailsa_xx (ailsa_xx), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:21 (fourteen years ago) link

I do want to be a pop star, but wouldn't stop making music if I knew (ha! I do know!) that I won't be one ever. But I don't want to be a pop star to be famous. At this point I just want the opportunity to play lots of shows to lots of new people all the time.

Hi Ailsa, did you have a nice weekend?

pfunkboy (Kerr), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:25 (fourteen years ago) link

I used to get all bent out of shape thinking about what sort of person I *wanted* to be listening to my music - and of course, never being satisfied with the people that *did* listen to my music, and alienating them in the first place, without ever attracting the DDB's I was craving. And then one day I thought "fuck it" and threw up my hands and just started concentrated on making music that hit *my* Happy Buttons.

And every now and then, I have a bit of a wobbly, but I have to kind of remind myself why I do make music. Because I go stark raving mad(der) if I don't. It's nice when more people listen to it, yes, I'll admit that (and it's probably really frustrating when you see you audience slipping away, or failing to form) - but the funny thing is, I think that people (music fans, whatever) are more attracted to your music when it *is* coming from your own Happy Buttons, that it's somehow just fresher, more energetic, more open, more honest, more... interesting.

And the funny thing is, the guys who invented the Crazy Frog were just f*cking about, trying to make the most annoying sound ever, for the sheer joy of it. Hence why its original name was "the annoying thing". Maybe that's not necessarily *musical* creativity, but it certainly fulfils the "push your own happy buttons first" criteria.

masonic boom (kate), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 16:26 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, I drank lots of wine and ate lots of nice food. Same as I would have done here, except my parents paid, and the weather was worse. (xpost)

Most exciting thing today = we bought a new fridge. Our old fridge has been kind of failing doing what it's meant to, so quick trip to Comet and, hurrah, cold food and drinks again.

I'm sure those that didn't know will see it mentioned over there(about here) I think the last fm watercooler may remain active so the music chat is confined there and away from here.

pfunkboy (Kerr), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 17:34 (fourteen years ago) link

That's because I don't listen to music on my computer much! Usually it's CDs or mp3 discs I've burned and then play over there. Better sound, you see.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 15 August 2006 17:35 (fourteen years ago) link

I thought you ripped all your music to mp3 and sold the cds because of space issues.

No, it's another last.fm group - it's called "UK Watercooler".

I don't do that thing Forest, but I had a housemate who did. She was from Austin, TX but was a student of British history who was obsessed with King Charles I. Fascinated by the fact that our landlord's VCR had its clock in 'military time' (ie the 24 hour clock) one day she pointed at it all excited and said "Ooh! Ooh! 1625! The year Charles became King of England and the year he married Henrietta Maria!"

Good morning! I'm in an excellent mood, even though I am fighting off iguana flu this morning.

Emsk, are you OK? PLEASE be careful out on those crazy London streets. There are a lot of idiots out there, don't get mown down by busses or cyclists. Do you have your bike up and going again? Seems you were safer on it!

yay, Mark H has found an ILX with no work restrictions! Welcome back!

I don't mind shopping, I just can't be bothered buying anything. Had to endure "women be shopping" jibes from Dare's boss all afternoon and so she bought a dress to spite him.

anyway... HURRAH, I LOVE SKATING!!! I WANNA DO MORE AND MORE AND MORE OF IT!!!!!!!!

Jim and his missus were supposed to come with us, but cancelled cause he was coming down with the flu. So Dare and I went to the Natural History Museum by ourselves. I was SO SCARED when I got on the ice, because I've not skated in 20 years, and I was all "I can't skate" and terrified. But five minutes on the baby rink and it all came back to me. I had years of lessons when I was a kid - I used to be kind of a mad hockey player when I was about 11.

Apprently the best ice rink in England is five minutes from my house - I've walked by it a million times and never been in it. But Dare gave me her spare pair of skates under the promise that I would go every week.

About all this "Give cows to Africa!!!" stuff... I don't know. I'm not sure if it's just not planned very carefully. (Why give dairy cows to Africa when 80% of Africans are lactose intolerant or something?) And goats can absolutely destabilise a threatened ecosystem since they are hardcore omnivores and will just devour everything faster than a plague of locusts.

But I suppose "dig a well for clean drinking water" doesn't look as cute on a christmas card or whatever.

I have never skated. I ph34r I'd be rubbish at it - I am as sure-footed as a one legged mountain goat. But then, I wasn't fortunate enough to have years of lessons as I kid like you did Kate, which may have allayed my (possibly stupid) ph34rs.

There is a tiny tiny skating rink in Oxford in the castle complex (actually the prison exercise yard complex but that doesn't have the same marketing potential).

It's possible that the real ILX would now be unblocked by our IT boffins were it operational. Rumour has it that the restrictions at the Oxford office were apparently stricter than the other offices around the globe and so in the interests of fairness they have been relaxed. This sounds like a rare and uncharacteristic act of altruism to me, and other explanations have been ciculating on the office rumour mill, including that we are making use of webthings for commercial reasons that were previously the preserve of 'fun interweb', such as blogs and podcasts. That said the podcast from our new chief CEO (we've just been taken over) was still blocked and an email came round saying "but you can of course watch it on yr computers at home". This was greeted with snorts of derision, speshly as it is apparently two hours long.

MarkH, I thought I was going to DIE when I got on the ice.

It's very scary at first. Dare *made* me do it, I really wasn't going to, I was all "no, I can't skate!"

But honestly, it's a bit like riding a bike. It's not difficult, but there's a trick to it. It's all about balance. I was terrified I was just going to fall over, but Dare told me "if you feel like you're going to fall, bend your knees" and I did that every time, and seriously, I didn't fall once.

I've only been ice skating once. I spent half an hour on the ice, and was terrified for every second of it. I value my fingers too much to go ice skating. it';s the kind of thing that looks brilliant once you can do it, but learnign to do it looks REALLY hard. EVERYTHING is easy if you know how!

Johnney B has zeros off the line (stigoftdumpilx), Wednesday, 13 December 2006 11:40 (fourteen years ago) link

also, I can see how learning to skate when one is very very small is the way to go - just because the rules of allometry mean that kids hurt themselves far less when they fall over anywhere, not just on ice so one can learn the balancing act and overcome one's fear early on and never have to worry again (if you keep on skating obv).

It almost seems like they're trying to say "why are men seen as superior to women?" but garbled it with "why are women seen as inferior to men?" and came out with something utterly nonsensical.

Unless of course they were actually trying to say that they beleive women are superior to men. (Only if you're an actuary, actualy.)

Please take the skating talk to the skating thread? It looks so lonely! I want to talk about skating, but over there.

You could just rename the skating thread to

Watercooler Sub Zero: Ice Capades

as it's all the same people and this thread is about a million posts too long.
