He didn't say his wife didn't like video games, just that she doesn't share his love of actively BUYING them.

Yep, you're right. Selling merch and touring is where the money is at. That may mean you have to tour 10 months out of the year, but you will be doing what you love and making a living. No one says it will be easy, but hey, that's life. People are still in a fantasy world where they think the music industry is just like it was in the 70's. Bad news, it isn't.

My favourite website for music right now is Bandcamp. Artists themselves get all the profits, you can listen to the whole album for free - and you can pay any price you wish for the album above the minimum price (some smaller artists can't afford to just let people pay $1). All albums also come in a huge amount of file types.

I also hear Turntable.fm is growing in popularity right now - unfortunately I can't get in on that action because I am not in the US.

This is my friend Pam's Bandcamp page, it should let you see what I'm talking about: http://pamshaffer.bandcamp.com/

Edit: If you ask me, the trick will be to make people want to pay for your music. This means that artists need to do it THEMSELVES. No big record label is going to risk a huge marketing campaign on a no-name who makes strange, out-there music. Which is why the current market is saturated in poppy-filler-crap. This is a GOOD thing.

Peoples future has been taken out of the hands of big faceless corporations and back into their own hands. Whether you float or sink is dependent on how much you are putting yourself out there. Trust me, there is a market out there for EVERYONE and catering to a niche market will get you a very VERY loyal fanbase that will look out for you more than any of the fans of these one-hit wonders will.

While I don't have any tattoo's myself (or have any desire to acquire any) I think your moogle is pretty damn cute. :D

You can dress up a simple kill quest with cheap, quick character development thus making to not feel like a generic fetch quest. People would be enticed to play though them not only for the reward but for a few bits of dialogue from characters that helps them get to know them. It's still filler, but less obnoxious about it.

Oh god guys I am so bored. It's really sunny today which means no one (except 2 people, now 3) showed up to my IT class. Not that I mind, I have a sore throat and I fucked up my wrist at work. So I have declared a "do whatever the fuck you want day".

EDIT: Never mind. A photographer randomly came in and we did a photoshoot.

She watched it at a friends house, right, Dice? ;D

@Grim: I LOATH those two episodes and it was a really shitty way to end Tennants time as a Doctor. I was glad that Alan Davies left for the far supeiror Moffat after that.

* Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast was real and she tried to kill me in my bed most nights



Lost it. xD

Apparently I had a crush on Belle as a child. I think my parents took this too seriously (I probably just liked her dress and the fact she read books) and when I came out they said "We had wondered, but since you had a crush on Belle - we put it out of our minds." I WAS TWO YEARS OLD MOTHER.

But not the Golden Compass movie - because that is evil doodoo kaka.

Am I remembering wrong or did the trailer show Harry grabbing Voldemort and falling off the top of Hogwarts? I am confused at how that could ever come about.

She is obviously a Death Eater. (Let it be known Yoda and I have some pretty geeky PM's about Harry Potter, mostly from me though)

Also, Vanguard - I am truly wishing you all the best.

You guys need to include me in that.

PM With a Harry Potter subject. If it is good enough I will welcome you into the club.

I retweeted it yesterday, but yes, this is a great thing.

Very happy about it. :)
