Patch Bays and Earthquakes
Found self troubleshooting patch bays and noise gates in the studio today. Not because I was supposed to, mind. Surprisingly, ended up mixing a 20-track catholic sing along because I had nothing else to do while it rained for the first time in a month and the police closed half the city down for a suspicious-looking-package(tm). That’ll be someone’s shopping safe-detonated by the bomb squad then.
Brum is turning into a right place for the headlines, good, bad or laughable. Not content with this bombscare (which I missed from two minutes walk away) , in the last fortnight we’ve had a full fledged earthquake [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/2275158.stm] (which I slept through), city fisticuffs [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/b/birmingham_city/2290607.stm] for the first premier league Brum derby game for sixteen years (football - hmm) and now police have broken up a people trafficking ring [http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/2289755.stm] at addresses around here. And of course, Brum is also putting itself in the running for European City of Culture in 2008 Ah, the folly. Forget web services - I should go into social commentary, invade Aston with some dettol and cockroach shock and see if anyone has a go at me for making the place a bit cleaner.Posted on October 1, 2002 #Nothing in Particular
