I was quite disturbed that one of the constant messages was "the human race are a bunch of w*nkers". I've written a big rant about it here.

but the human race are by and large a bunch of w4nk3rs

we're lucky to know some nice people, most people are at best insignificant, at worst utter nob-ends (I love that insult, it amuses me so much)

I'm feeling quite Christmassy in that I have warm feelings towards those I care about (present company most definitely included) and a wish for everyone else on the planet to leave me alone for a week.

I've seen Avatar, and it is gorgeous to look at in 3D. The story has no ambition to it, but most people do a good acting job.

If anyone understands this, it's a cross between Aliens and the Final Fantasy games.

There are always one or two Christmas games.  This one seemed appropriate to post here:

Sitting In the sunlight on next door's shed roof, no less than three foxes. They looked very well-fed - obviously being an urban fox in East London is a reasonable gig. They sat there for a good five minutes while we watched them, then just got down into one of the gardens at the back of ours and sauntered off.

We'd seen one quite a few times, but three...such a thrill!

I'll be honest. There is a part, deep, deep inside of me that fears the thought that I've missed something in the recording/editing stage and when we get to the mix (where substantial amounts of time and cash will be committed), it will be too late to correct things.

Forgive the geeky muso talk but...

The average number individual instrument tracks for a song on The Big Red Spark (including drums, guitars, basses, synths, vocals, backing vocals, etc) is hovering around the 50 mark. One song even tipped the scale at 120 tracks at one point. The reason for this is that my old recording software (ACID) was designed in such a way that it meant I had to create a new track for every overdub that was recorded by the band. It has been my task over the past twelve weeks to transfer the audio files put down in 2008/9 into my nice new sexy Pro Tools 8 system and then lower the track count to a manageable amount by manually cutting and pasting the many overdubs into groups of continuous performances i.e. All of Jim's guitar solos on one track, all of his rhythm parts onto another, etc.

It's dull work but it has to be done.
