I giggled and cringed all at once ETC.
Big race this weekend... not a big fan of hamilton, but losing the title (on the back of a ridiculous double points for the last race rule) to Nico after beasting him all year would be unfair.
Well that takes the punch out of my hardhitting subject line.
The cosby PR machine infiltrated Bedrock? No harm done.
Jon Hopkins is everything you want James Holden to be when he has his head way up his own ass.
Smashed the bejesus out of the place. Hands down the best set I've heard in recent years. Similar to his fact mix but so much more. Really hope he puts it up for download - there were some bits that almost had me in tears it was that good. Remixed open eye signal on the fly, goddamn.
Looking forward to catching him at the nh7 festival in the next
Couple of hours.
Happy belated birthday ETC... hope you had a good one!
Re: Walk with me and along the way find the best of 2014 thread.. (9 replies, posted in General Bedrock Discussion)
Did BF ever get around to consolidating the Bedrock End Of Year awards from 2013? I remember he took ownership of it, but never saw that final thread with the winners etc.
Have to say ed the confessor, I'm sorry to hear all the shite you've gone through. You've been dealt a raw deal - proper soldier you are.
Quit fizzy drinks, ran 4KM (usually in half an hour) and did 15 mins of light weights every day, bowl of cereal for dinner (usually after a heavy lunch) - went from 92KGs to 82KGs, 36 to 32 waist size. This was all in 2013.
Gave that all up and lived my life like a boss in 2014 - now at 84 kgs and still at 32. Will get back on it eventually... still smoking cigs like an animal also, really need to quit that shit.
My blue suede shoes > Yant's blue suede shoes
@yant - Can't remember if I've posted them on here, but here are my blue suede shoes.
Defo Joey... will stay in touch. Amsterdam, Berlin early next year in all probability - will try to squeeze in London if I can get that Schengen visa.
Rhouses: "kinda focused on an early retirement plan now. My own apartment is next on the list..." LOL
( joking apart, he'll probably be richer than us all in 20 years, with his ten fingers in the emerging markets pie...)
Forgot to mention, I also have stock with the company I work with... quite a meaty bit - having been with them during their start up days 4 years back. Keeping my fingers crossed for when we go public - it could either mean an expensive car, two month vacation in Europe or god willing, a pimp apartment.
As dickish as he is, I'm quite intrigued about Beijing Dave's answer to this.
That's probably a budget weekend vacation in Goa, Yant.
I would be interested in hearing what people on here consider enough to retire early with is.
I think about $900K-$1M should see me through a good 10 years of retirement in India - keeping in mind you should be mainly living off the interest that comes with it.
The more money you earn shouldn't dictate a change in lifestyle imo. Once you find that comfortable spot at a certain cost, try to maintain that - earning more money doesn't necessarily mean you need to change your lifestyle for something more aspirational. More money should equal more saving, not faster cars and bling watches.
Not really sure about those CJ.
In two minds about these bad boys, a bit too chunky for my liking but nice colourway:
Was a horrible spender but for the last two years I've been saving a lot. Didn't really save anything... but started with 10% of my salary every year from 2010. Starting 2012 I've found a nice space where I can put aside 50% of my salary every month and all of it is in mutual funds besides a small amount which is in a fixed deposit with a yearly 9% return. The money I saved in 2010 and 2011 has doubled, while my 2012 onwards portfolio is looking extremely promising - seen a huge surge in the Indian markets with our new Prime Minister who is promising huge infrastructure changes (tip from my dad).
I have a crutch because I don't pay rent as I live with my father. My company takes care of my breakfast, lunch and dinner - so I'm really not spending anything on weekdays besides a few nice dinners & drinks and the commute. I don't know, I kinda had an epiphany in 2012, just felt I was surrounded by materialistic shit that didn't really mean anything - shoes, clothes, DJ gear, watches... over that and kinda focused on an early retirement plan now. My own apartment is next on the list, but I have a feeling marriage and children are gonna completely derail my plans of never having to work again post 40 years old.
The Affair is very very good. Great drama and mystery. Didn't think I'd enjoy after reading the premise but it's written well and McNulty is killing it. Maybe the married with kids blokes on here will connect with it.
London and Argentina sit on top, imo. Great groove through out, consistent in quality across the multiple discs and so many great 'moments'.
Having said that, Disc 1 for Miami is really something special (sexy time music, imo) and I still find myself going back to that 17 min mark on Disc 2 where he just goes mental with Anger Management and Sugar Daddy.
Slovenia blew me away the first time I heard it, proper peak time madness... but that's about it. With the rest of the "Live in" packages you're always discovering something new with each listen... with slovenia it's a bit one dimensional.
haha Who are you Kumquat!? Next time get in touch when you're in my town.
Yeah they've got a decent biryani, great Indian food at Windsor Manor... but I mean it's a 5 star hotel, so the food has to be good. They used to do an epic bbq sunday brunch which I used to enjoy quite a lot.
