Re: Learning CSS

I've just started doing HTML and CSS! I'm doing an evening class at a local college in conjunction with teaching myself things and it's going good so far! I recently bought this book which as well as being astonishingly beautiful, is also very informative: https://www.amazon.co.uk/HTML-CSS-Design-Bu...

Re: Is indiepop racist?

But again, I don't think this is just an indiepop issue. Just look at any kind of music within western culture and ask yourself if any of it whether underground or mainstream accurately reflects the diverse nature of the societies we live in. Nobody is saying it's just an indiepop issue or picking ...

Re: Is indiepop racist?

The reason that a lot of white people on this thread haven't experienced racism in indiepop is because they are white people and white people do not experience racism. I know POC in the indiepop scene who HAVE experienced racism, from microaggressions like Carys describes above to full on, deliberat...

Re: General Stuff People Want to Know

I'm not your fucking mother. Stop acting like a petulant child - you've not been caught with your hands in the biscuit tin, you've been fairly criticised for making an ill advised "joke" that pisses all over the marginalised and the fact that you're still being so flippant about doesn't really convi...

Re: General Stuff People Want to Know

If your idea of a joke is mocking the severely disadvantaged then you need to look at your life. Being on JSA, whether it's just for a couple of weeks or more long term, and being made to do mandatory work for free under threat of further poverty is demoralising and humiliating enough, and having so...

Re: General Stuff People Want to Know

Yeah, the tweets I saw said that he lived 13 miles away and is reliant on public transport. As far as I'm aware (I may be wrong, I don't live in Derby) the bus from Derby is about £4 for a return and doesn't even stop near the site, so that's roughly £20 a week on transport, which is about half the ...

Re: General Stuff People Want to Know

It’s a serious issue, and as rotten as the concept of Workfare is - doesn’t part of you think that the guy doing the tweeting would be much happier in his life if he hung out at Butterley looking at trains, rather than sat on twitter pissing and moaning about how crap everything is? Hanging out in ...

Re: Don't Make a Scene: a field guide to putting on DIY gigs

If it wasn't for four band bills then Lost Pets wouldn't have had such brilliant luck in getting our first two gigs - I think it helps that at the moment we only have 5 finished songs and therefore only have a 17 minute long set, and we're happy to have a short sound check. From an audience member's...

I can guarantee 1000000% that the drinking will definitely happen, although it may not be vodka as I now have a ridiculous, superstitious pre-gig ritual of having to drink a double bourbon with ice before going on.

If you Google "layer of chips youtube" it's the first result! I'm going to ensure it's played on a loop on a massive screen during our set.
