    It might be general to the area actually. My Vietnamese housemate at university was like a mouse, but if they had a couple of people round it was like the Fall of Saigon.

    I love the exceptions to this rule. Guy in my freshman dorm at university was straight from China, one of the best math students in the entire country. He was a very peculiar fellow but extremely boisterous and had a loud presence wherever he went. He would also get blackout drunk weekly, his English would deteriorate, and he’d stumble around walking into random rooms and start conversations with everyone. Wonder what he’s up to now

    Richmond Park is about 5 minutes from a brewery/pub I was doing a tour of (Rascals), nearest watering hole to the ground. Even 50 away fans will have the place wrecked before they can finish off an oi oi oi. Got my money back this evening but the mate can't go for another month as he works weekends.

    I quite like York. The city walls being well preserved really give the place a proper look. York Minster is an impressive building. Didn't get up to much else but the Railway Museum was alright. I don't think I'm as keen on trains as I used to be but the scale and the look of old trains still gets to me. There was a proper novelty to train travel the older carriages manage to convey.

    Also, York has an HMV. I thought they went bust? £20 spent on Run Come Save Me, Straight Outta Compton and Twilight Sad's new one.

    If you could hit a ball over the crossbar with nobody to stop it or have to get it past a goalkeeper into a smaller area then it's fairly obvious the latter is 3 and the former 1.

    It's on telly anyway cos I'm drank and smoked out, and I'm already going to the other semi final tomorrow.

    You'll need drugs, it's the only reason techno exists.

    Drugs help, for sure. Especially if it’s one of those club nights that drags on into the morning. I love me some sober techno sets too but I’m deep in the rabbit hole for that kind of music so for a newcomer, you might be a bit bored. Just try to listen to it rhythmically, as opposed to musically, if that makes any sense

    It's basically a non-commercial version of the 'dance music' you hear on the radio, minus the vocals (mostly) and without the 'drop'.

    Put even more basically - doof doof doof doof doof doof doof doof doof doof doof doof.

    I refute what Giggles said as I've never taken any sort of gear and had many a quality night in my young, free and slim days, but yes, if you're not a fan, you may need some chemical assistance.

    WARNING: When I went to the Warehouse Project in Manchester they had sniffer dogs. Bury it deep in your rectum.

    Thanks gents. Drugs are almost certainly going to be involved but my mate who's invited me is quite set on getting coke which, from experience, doesnt do much to make me enjoy the music more, just makes me wanna chain smoke fags and talk bollocks. Well, more so than when I'm sober.

    It's not a proper WHP type event, think it's just in some sketchy pub. Any advice relating to putting things in my bum is welcomed tho.

    They've just trotted Lowry and the jug out before throw-in. He probably still hasn't sobered at this stage.

    Cousin's getting married in just over a month, bride and groom's family all football mad so we had a family v family football match. Little uns got involved but still a competitive edge, was very enjoyable. Might even become an annual event.

    My friend has a ‘fun little throw around’ with a rugby ball at his wedding which resulted in an older family member on his brides side going to hospital in an ambulance with a broken leg.

    Techno is pretty big at the moment (talking UK here, it's huge worldwide). The tech house wankers are migrating currently, so you've got the 'big room' techno now which is usually full of roidheads paying a fiver a go for a balloon and talking through sets.

    I went to Corsica Studios last night and it was very good. It reminded me a bit of Berlin in that a lot of the crowd were just totally letting go, as it should be.

    You've got to give the music your full attention and let it whip you onto a frenzy. Drugs or no drugs, techno gets your mind racing like no other genre but it does require some patience. I do have doubts about the sound system and crowd if it's in a pub, though. Got a link to the event?

    Being in a shitty pub will mean it's either:

    A) a chancer has hired it out and will probably DJ it theirself.

    B) the landlord has a copy of 'the best of Ibiza 2009' in the CD player.

    Techno played live (as opposed to deejayed) is easily the best form of electronic music.

    Drum machines n synthesizers. This sort of thing:

    Do people do that live? I know plenty who take the modular route when they’re producing but I’ve never been to a show where they’re doing that on stage in-person

    It's quite common. Some will just use hardware to recreate/alter their own tracks on the fly but the best sets tend to be entirely improvised.

    KiNK is probably the most well known but he's not really techno. Karenn, Giant Swan, Ancient Methods/Orphx, Surgeon, Tobias, Neil Landstrumm, Voices from the Lake are all absolutely worth seeing if you get the chance.

    Aye. There's something special to it that's difficult to put into words. I've decided I'm going to start going to techno nights by myself after last night, because I end up having more fun if I lose people. There's just no room for sacrifice once you're in that headspace.

    No particularly zany anecdotes I'm afraid but I had lots of fun. I did have one and a half pills, but I thought the music was great. I'd venture to say techno>house for eccied up dancing , at least from my limited experiences.

    Tbh the main thing I'm pleased about this weekend is my social anxiety around big groups of mates has abated massively. It was basically me, my mate and his big group of uni mates and they've all known each other for years with associated injokes etc. Usually I find it very uncomfortable to be inserted into them social situations but I actually made conversation and was generally a CHILL GUY whereas even two years ago I'd have just been mega nervous and awkward and spent most of the night hiding by my mate. This was while I was sober to clarify.

    Just seen my mates flatmate looking terrified in the kitchen- she got to sleep at 7am after similar debauchery and is now about to go on a tinder date to a thai restaurant. Rather her than me.
