  1. Wordle 218 3/6 I should do this inebriated all the time. Lucky with the first and second guess here.
  2. I also think it is poor but will be interested to hear in the context of the album so er, cautiously optimistic.
  3. One less guess than my wife, which is the only result that matters. I feel like I should have done this in 4. The last letter just didn’t pop into my head as a possibility. Wordle 208 5/6
  4. I assumed it would be to confirm my suspicions. Wordle 207 3/6
  5. I am also a noob who has just begun. Yeah, I think you go off and explore them - that's what I'm in the process of doing.
  6. Epic have killed any interest in Humble Bundle for me, alongside other factors (like poor monthly selections the past few years) - so many games I got from HB have shown up as freebies on Epic in the past 2 years+. I just finished playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider in the past week. That was a game where I pulled the trigger on a monthly bundle for $12 with whatever else they were offering at the time. What was a bargain back then is a freebie now. For someone like me who is always a few years behind the release curve, I'm just inundated with top tier stuff for free now. Other humble deals included Control, Batman series, Hitman, Frostpunk, and that's just the top-of-mind games I've played. I've already played them but the Tomb Raider trilogy for free is fantastic. I love those games - switch brain off, enjoy lovely visuals and help Lara murder hundreds of people.
  7. The Keyser Söze of Succession. I loved the finale - I was buzzing by the end of it. I also really liked the speculation about:
  8. 01 - Turnstile - Glow On 02 - Sufjan Stevens & Angelo De Augustine - A Beginner's Mind 03 - Shire T - Tomorrow's People 04 - Squarepusher - Feed Me Weird Things 05 - Halsey - If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power 06 - Badbadnotgood - Talk Memory Everything above has spent good time on the turntable. Long list for potential future inclusion if I get time to get into them (unlikely). Bicep - Isles DJ Seinfeld - Mirrors The Bug - Fire Martin Gore - The Third Chimpanzee + Remixes We Butter the Bread With Butter - Das Album Jerry Cantrell - Brighten Carcass - Torn Arteries New Cynic album (only just heard about this) Mastodon - Hushed and Grim (not doing it for me so far) Hooded Menace - The Tritonus Bell (a doom death band I've been meaning to check out for years) Every Time I Die / Cave In 7" Split
  9. One of my favourite bands. I have a signed gig ticket (signed by Blag) as one of my prized possessions.
  10. A little detail I noticed in episode two that probably won’t go anywhere, just thrown in for kicks.
  11. Anyone on the new BBNG? It arrived in the post this morning. First impressions are good. Very happy with the pressing, it sounds fantastic.
  12. I’m off to give Matthew Castle Productions a vote on twitter, just out of pity really. If this keeps up, Big Sammy will be doing a hostile takeover of MCP and sacking all the staff. edit: maybe not, Basil Pesto is way ahead in the poll.
  13. Yeah absolutely, and with my monitors, each one has it's own volume control which is a pain so best to set them at the same level and use a volume control on the desk. Most of the ones I use are USB driven and are overkill for your situation because you don't need a DAC or to plug instruments into (I'm assuming). I use either an Axe I/O (mostly for recording guitar), an audio-gd headphone amp or a Schiit Fulla mini headphone amp. The Fulla would do the job for you but it's expensive (£100) and has features you don't need. The Behringer I linked to previously would work but something like this Fostex would do exactly what you need and no more - it also doesn't even need power: https://www.thomann.de/gb/fostex_pc_1_black.htm
  14. I can see the volume knob but I have a pair of JBL active monitors that would still be really loud at their lowest volume setting. I use a headphone amp or audio interface to control the volume. In this case, I think it is a faulty speaker unit though.
