Got an iPhone I'd recommend it

So after weeks of deliberaton about whether to get an iPhone or another blackberry, I decided to go for the apple device. I'm pretty pleased with my choice only a day later.

The thing that made me go for it was not the design, not the appleness of it, but the vast amount of apps and support for the iPhone across everything. For example, I like to keep track of my bank account and as far as I could see, android was not supported. Whereas iPhones operating system is compatible with my digital banking service.

My choices were iPhone, blackberry bold or sony Ericsson experia x10. Each good phones in their own ways.
The hardest thing about the iPhone is the keyboard. It will take a while to get used to the inputting of data because the screen obviously doesn't have raised parts to tell you where each key is, a feature of the blackberry which allowed me to type quicker than I can type on a pc or laptop.

This post is made from the iPhone so you can see all the spelling and grammar errors for yourself, you'll all probably think I'm drunk right now.

I aint got no money!

After checking my bank account today for the first time in a few months i realised how much shit i was in.

Overdraft is currently sitting at -£1600 , (yes negative). So unless i sell my ass for some money or come up with some way of making some quick cash before i start my job next monday then i literally cant do anything, cant afford to go to university, cant afford books, cant afford to go out at the weekends, nothing!

This scheme is working well (you know what im talking about) but i still havent recieved my verification letter which sucks.

Now i have tried dumpster diving also which seemes pikey on the face of it, but when times are hard, you gotta do what you gotta do. i found some RAM sticks from old PCs which i can maybe punt for about £20, not much, i also found an old lawnmower which i took the motor out of and its currently on gumtree waiting for a suitor.

For a while back in summer i was "fixing" computers by reinstalling windows so it all ran quicker for the customer but i had to stop doing that because the windows copy i had said not genuine.

I would be more interested in hearing about peoples experiences with financial hardship and what you did to overcome it. i may implement some of your measures for myself until i get my first paycheque.

Be sure to check out my other blog Live TV where i will be streaming popular tv shows from the UK. Last night i streamed The Apprentice UK to a small audience then The Inbetweeners for a couple of robots who wanted it. usually i stream about 1am ish GMT, for live TV shows and sports it will always be at the time of the actual event.

Ugh, its monday

So its the dreaded monday now!

I really shouldn't be complaining since all i have to do today is go to university for 2 hours but even still, its a mission to get up, get dressed, drive for an hour just to sit in a lecture hall where i will probably not take it all in anyway.

Im sure many people are in the same predicament.

My weekend was ok, I didnt really do much at all, just spent some time with the girlfriend.

Roll on friday :)

Dj software and hardware

One user politely asked to make a blog post about the equipment i used, so i shall do just that. thanks for the idea.

So This is my setup

1x Technics SL1200
1x Technics SL1210 turntables
Gemini PS 626 EXF mixer
Serato scratch live (SL3)
Macbook white Unibody
Sony MRDV900HD headphones

The serato software and hardware is a digital solution for DJs - it is the main component of my setup; without that i could not play anything. there are many DJs who will argue about digital vs real vinyl but in my opinion the difference in sound quality is negligible for any MP3 audio files of 320 kbps

this is a screenshot of serato in use

The red arrow points to the record button, this is all i have to do to record my mixes, other than ensure that the volume levels are adequate to allow a high quality playback, this record button records at 2304kbps which in theory is better than CD quality, but remember that the initial MP3s used to create the mix are only at 320 kbps. what i therefore do is save the recording and use itunes to convert to 320kbps MP3, which is what you will hear if you download any of my Soundcloud mixes.

that is all there is to recording my mixes.

There are many digital solutions out there like traktor, virtual DJ and serato, i chose serato because its classed as the industry standard. It did cost £520 but if you are serious about Djing then it is a good investment that never loses its value.

Equally important is the Macbook.
Serato does run on both Windows and OSX but after doing much research i found that OSX tended to be the most stable with the SL3 device. The previous version of Scratch Live was called SL1 and it ran brilliant in both platforms. there is also just something cool about seeing a glowing apple logo in a DJ booth.

Traktor is also good but is less widely used and doesnt have as nicely laid out a GUI as serato does. Virtual DJ is also used sometimes but this is more entry level than professional.

I will be making an upbeat mix for one commenter as he said that he likes to listen to this type of music while he jogs. keep this blog in your bookmarks and rss and you'll never miss a beat.

Last night was a night with mixed fortunes.

Ended up supporting my friend because he got thrown out of his house because apparently his room was dirty, kind of pathetic reason if you ask me. Then went OUT. This is where the problems began...

At first it was ok. In a local club, playing snooker and pool, watching the Barcelona football game and having a decent time. Then He decides to get drunk and wants to go to a different bar where there were "girls". Now on the face of things, this doesn’t seem like a bad idea. But couple the fact that I already have a GF and the fact that my own mother was out in town with her friends too, and you have a recipe for potential disaster (sober disaster).

When we arrived at out new destination we had walked into what could only be described as "cougar land". We are 21 year old males and there’s just something about 21 year old males that middle-aged women find very attractive. What was even more disturbing is that my mother was among them. Rather than be Beta as fuck and try and hide to avoid any embarrassment, I seen the opportunity for some free drinks. 

This was a bad move because in order to get to my mum, I had to run a gauntlet of grannies through the dance floor to get to her. I’m all for being told i'm cute and adorable but what I have a problem with is a large woman in her late 40s wearing tight leggings and a low cut top grinding me and saying, "come here toy boy". I suddenly reverted back into beta mode and hid out in the smoking area for most of the night, counting down the minutes till I had to go and pick my girlfriend up from a concert. All the while my friend who is usually a fan of the older wimminz is also curled up in the corner with a cougar beside him and stroking his leg.

Time came to leave and go and get the girlfriend. Fantastic! I hear you say.
Well I ended up scraping the car in a supermarket car park and I hit a parked car and smashed my passenger side mirror.

To top it off, when we got home, my plan of action was to watch the X-factor with her and then try and instigate some sexan. 

She fell asleep with my arms around her and left me with blue balls. I couldn’t even move because she was on top of me.

Any alpha would just move her but I love her too much for that.

The Inbetweeners

About a week ago I discovered through Facebook that there was a TV show called, The Inbetweeners.

For anyone not in the UK I would suggest downloading at least one episode and watching it, its only 25 minutes long.

It is basically about a boy who moves from private school to a state school and has trouble fitting in, he meets 3 friends who are the "uncool" ones in school but not so uncool that they are in the total rejects.

Having watched 2 seasons in the space of a day I feel that it is the most appropriate TV show out there that represents the /r9k/ demographic. They have trouble getting invited to parties, trouble with girls, they masturbate all the time and they ultimately are the people who get paper balls thrown at them in class

Without any word of a lie it is the funniest British comedy show out there.

If you’re in the UK you can catch it on 4od (channel 4's on demand service) and you can see the latest series on YouTube

For the folk across the pond and/or English Channel you can find it here as you may not be able to view 4od outside of the UK...

Back to school

If your not already, then you are just about to go back to college/school/university whatever, unless your an Oldbro who actually has a job and earns a living.

What I have noticed since I started browsing 4chan and various other chans is that there is a wealth of knowledge and experience across all the boards. I failed second year mathematics miserably due to procrastination and having "better" more-fun things to do. But in hindsight I realise I could have actually done well if I used the help that was right in front of my eyes i.e. /sci/; Yes many people on there, and all boards of that matter are just either unwilling to help a bro out or they don’t know themselves. But the times where you find a diamond in the coal is what keeps me coming back to 4chan.
I’m currently in the middle of Finance and Marketing and a bro on /r9k/ was also a finance student and he helped me with calculating IRRs. Thanks bro!!!

This is my inaugural post about why I like /r9k/ follow me and let me know what you want to see on this blog.



Similar to /r9k/, you users can control what happens here. leave comments saying what you would like to see, be it an encyclopedia tripfags or the days best stories or copypastas, whatever. Im relatively new to the whole blogging thing but in time i hope to make this one of the best blogs out there.
