Found this stuff by accident pretty much , but everyone loves Pianos and everyone loves Rock.

Jack’s Manequin , Ben Folds ,and The Fray are all pretty cool for chillout music , i wouldnt really call them rock but more like putting a good beat to piano music and some vocals. Which is always good.

Ive only had small listens to each of them but Jack’s Mannequin definitely has something special going on – shame half the time the music feels like it belongs in a greys anatomy ‘reflection scene’.
I uploaded one of my favorite tracks by them for you guys to have a sample , they sound REALLY similar to some other band ive heard before but i cant remember what the other band was called.

‘How to save a life’ by The Fray is a great track also.(full track available for stream @ http://www.last.fm/music/The+Fray/_/How+to+Save+a+Life ) , imo anyway.

Least it aint no Oasis.

No idea what else to say , what a boring day.

This club is basically ‘The Ship’ played on campus. And it sounds amazing.

http://assassins.draknek.org/

Introduction:
This section outlines the various weapons which may be used in the mock
assassination attempts conducted by Players. It is not exhaustive and Players are
encouraged to be imaginative but if you wish to use a weapon which is not explicitly
permitted in this section of the rules you must email the Umpire with details and must
await confirmation from the Umpire as to whether or not the weapon is permitted
before you use it. The reasons for an Umpire refusing to allow are weapon are
fourfold. It must not be dangerous, for people or property. It must be fair, a weapon
which is seen to be excessively powerful as the victim cannot escape being killed will
not be permitted, it must also be target specific and not affect innocent bystanders. It
must not look like a real weapon e.g. anything resembling even vaguely a real gun
will not be permitted. It also must tangibly do something to the other Player make
them aware they have been killed. All non-obvious assassin weapons must be labelled
appropriately. Kills with weapons are made by a hit to the torso – do not aim for
another Players head/face.

Ranged Weapons:
The only ranged weapons permitted are water guns, ranging from tiny water pistols up
to supersoakers. All other ranged weapons are banned specifically including: nerf
guns, rubber band launchers, bb guns etc. This is part of our agreement with Warwick
Security and any Player contravening this rule will be subject to any disciplinary
measures they see fit to impose.
To make a kill with a water pistol the main jet of water must hit the torso of the target;
splash does not count as a kill. Please use the weapons responsibly, do not drench
your target, nor aim for a backpack as this is likely to be containing work.
Loaded water weapons may be used to make a ‘bang-kill’. To do this you must be
within touching distance of the target and have an indisputably clear and unmissable
shot at the target. The kill is made by loudly saying ‘Bang’ instead of firing the
weapon. Note that bang kills may be made in areas in which water weapons may
not actually be fired.
Water weapons may not be used in any indoor areas with the exception of for
making ‘bang-kills’. Do not fill these weapons with liquids other than water,
especially not ones which dry sticky, or are coloured and may stain clothing.

Melee Weapons:
Fake knives, clubs, coshes, swords, axes etc may be used.
These can be inflatable,
plastic, made from cardboard or newspapers. They may not be thrown and any-nonobvious
weapons must be appropriately labelled e.g. a cardboard cut out in the shape
of a knife must be labelled ‘Knife’. Do not use any metal objects as weapons. Rolled
up newspapers used as clubs must be sellotaped so the shape is permanent and
labelled clearly. LARPs weapons may be used. Again, kills are made by a blow to the
torso, not the head of the target.

Attack Animals:
Soft toys or other appropriate toys may be used as attack animals. These must be clearly
labelled as ‘poisonous spider’ or ‘killer rabbit’
or anything else appropriate. These
may be thrown towards the target, but in the event of a miss, the target may not touch
the animal, as it is loyal to its master if the target touches the animal it will attack, and
kill, that Player.

Grenades:
Bags of confetti, water bombs, etc may be used as grenades, if they strike the target
then it does not matter of they explode, the Player is killed. If they miss, there must be
an appreciable splash over the Player in the explosion for the kill to count. The usual
area restrictions on water weapons apply to water bombs, especially do not use them
indoors.

Boulders:
A large object such as a beach ball, mass of polystyrene, or empty cardboard box

labelled appropriately as ‘boulder’ ‘anvil’ ‘safe’ etc may be dropped onto a target for
a kill. Footballs may be labelled and rolled, not kicked, at a target to make a kill.
These objects may be set up as traps for unsuspecting Players.

Banned Weapons:
None of the following are permitted in any form:
• Armour/shielding of any kind.
Poison gas
• Any projectile weapon that does not fire water
• BB guns, air pistols, paintball guns or any other actual weapon
• Thrown CDs or playing cards
Bombs or any explosive devices.

My friend actually sent me this song and i listened to it unknowingly and by accident. I didn’t go out and download the lazytown soundtrack or anything. Honest.

I just found a girl that has the caramelldansen song on her mp3 player and knows the dance.
I’m considering when would be the ideal time to ask for her hand in marriage.

When filling out the form it asks for some details about yourself , i can only presume this is so they can organize you into where you will be staying.
This is what i put.

I can only hope they put me on a floor full of qualified chefs who wrote ‘showoff’ on their self details

Trackmania Tracks

I played about in the trackmania track creator earlier and made 2 (not one , but TWO) amazing tracks.
ive packed them into a RAR for you to download if you haven’t already tried them out when i was running the server earlier.

2damnamazing seemed to get pretty good feedback from the people who played it on the server , Skybound is a new track which only Boyce had the pleasure of trying out , he claimed it was “NICE” and a “Solid medium length track with impressive visuals” So there you have it!
Download this shizzay!~

Killer.

posted in: blog, work | 0

So its after work on a saturday.

They’re all talking some shit about… shit.

They’re all having a conversation about how cool i am (im serious. Infact , this is the second half of that conversation , the first half was how handsome i am. – again. i really wish i was joking here.)
After a minute or so of conversation one of them turns round to me and says ‘Do you like da killer?’
Obviously , being able to speak english and such , i just assumed he was talking about the band ‘The Killers’ (somebody told me / When you were young / Mr Brightside etc etc)
I responded with ‘they’re okay…i guezz’ as i normally do when i dont know what else to say in a conversation.
He starts laughing.
I stand there , perplexed.
“Okay , we call you killer from now on yeah?”

I stand there , still perplexed.
“Uh… sure.” I say ,  as i put on my coat and quickly walk out.
