Since Thursday, I’ve been at the home/trailer of dgl1984. I did not plan on doing a show from his place, especially since we both did a show on New Year’s Eve, called DeadTime 20o10 (yet to be uploaded,) and I’m not familiar with his board. Derek, unfortunately, started a campaign for me to do just that, and, apparently, lots of people wanted to see things flop over, have issues, and generally fail to not suck. So, here it is! I hope you’re all happy with your decision (you know who you are, of course!)
Phone issues, send problems, broken files, barfing USB drives (literally,) guns, explosions, and a problem in a pair tree… Never again will I do a show with someone else’s gear. Never!
Well, ok. It actually wasn’t all that bad, given it could have been a lot worse. Enjoy the first stupid thing from 2011. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come. I already had enough of that last year.
Due to Derek’s encoder not having been set up to archive in wave format, and, since ogg splicing is an ugly business, this will be the first show in 5 years, 11 months and 11 days to not feature an intro. Great, since I tried, and failed, to reenact the start of the first ever Things and Stuff from January 1, 2005, which also doesn’t feature an intro.
Have fun, or not, and may the new year suck much less than the last one did.
