I love my 92, and it's still going strong.

Bought it 8 years ago off a mate who was moving to Australia to get married and needed to flog some gear and raise some cash sharpish. Bought his year old Xone 92 and 2 x CDJ1000 Mk3s for £1,300.

Sadly, he and his missus split up, the wedding never happened, and he ended up staying in the UK. Had a crisis wondering whether I should offer to sell him back his decks and mixer at the price I paid for them. For about a minute...

This.

Was on a Digweed mix from '99 from 3Beat, out the back of the Jam and Spoon mix of Tubular Bells. Mix was what made me want to start DJing... Only found out what it was about six months ago?!

Does it have to be Sasha and Digweed on the same bill in Ibiza?

I've had mine for about six years, since I had a shoulder operation and couldn't shave for 4 weeks. My Mrs now absolutely insists on it, and says I look weird without it. Shave it off when we're going away somewhere hot, but always grow back. Usually keep it trimmed at around 10-14 days worth.

I always used to have a pretty good idea of my first 3-4 tracks, and then had sequences of 3-4 tracks that I knew went well together and could raise/lower the tempo and energy level if I wanted to. Beyond that, see what worked and what didn't...

This.

I just don't see the core Labour vote deserting the party as there are no pragmatic alternatives available to them (except in Scotland) whereas the Tory base has more distractors. That said, whichever of the parties most effectively occupies (or appears to occupy) the centre ground is likely to win in May. I'm inclined to agree with Smashy - unless something goes hugely wrong for them, I think the Conservatives will end up being the largest party. Whether they squeak a majority or not, I'm not so sure...

£350 sounds pretty cheap for a xone62! Is that the going rate these days? I looked at selling my 92 a few years back (before deciding to hold onto it...) and ebay auctions were topping out at around £1,200 or so...

Ex Machina - top bombing, 9/10. Love the premise, love the cinematography, great performances, want that house.

That would be more appropriate. Guilty as charged, I'm afraid.

Head hanging in shame here as well. Not sure I'm gonna get it done before I head off to Vietnam next week - so likely end of February. Shocking performance...

I didn't want kids until we actually had one - it is usually the woman who wants one in any case (the biological urge or whatever)… now I wouldn't go back and change anything. It's hard work but I look at people who don't have them and think their lives are empty ...yeah i know you're going to travel round the world blah blah blah… but Ive done that smile

I don't doubt it, but fair play to you for having the stones to go ahead with it if you weren't sure until the point it happened! Neither Vicki nor I have ever had the urge to have them. I've got plenty of mates that just haven't been able to wait until they can start a family. Different strokes and all that. I think for us, we'd both be petrified at the idea of taking a punt that we *might* end up thinking it was the greatest thing ever, when I suspect it's just a case that neither of us are that way minded...

Absolute won't. Love our mates' kids to bits, but just never wanted any of our own.... We're planning a six month sabbatical in a few years to travel round the Americas. Fuck all chance of that happening if we had our own kids.

I think most of our friends and family have got over the 'strangeness' of not wanting to have kids. Helps a lot that my sister delivered the much wanted grandchild for my parents a couple of years back though.

Neither of us have ever had that burning desire to start a family, and frankly we're far too selfish about protecting the lifestyle we lead to risk fucking it up.

The drop at 7:20 is one of my favourite moments in music...

I'd lose a minimum of five pairs a year.

On the sleep front, usually about 6-7 hours a night during the week, and 8-9 at the weekend. Trufax.

I reckon the first Ian Ossia classics boat party that Talent Audio did a couple of years back. Their parties are always bouncing, but that night was amazing - real crowd jumping stuff...

Birdman - strong 8.5/10. Thought Keaton was excellent in it, and the dark humour had us laughing a lot. I'm not usually one for being too bothered about this sort of thing, but thought the cinematography was standout...

Nightcrawler. Solid 7/10. Interesting premise, and thought Gyllenhaal was excellent as the slightly deranged nutjob.

There for Garden the week before, and staying on a few days. Might head out on a couple of the EE boat parties before we head home...

About £30 - £40 a month on digital stuff.

When I started spinning in 2000 when I earned about a third of what I do now, I was dropping about 4-5 times that a month. Idiot... Mainly shopped at Plastic Fantastic in town, and Juno online.

I went to school with Mike Rutherford's son, Tom.

Also, when I was at university, I played hockey in the same team as Chris Martin and Will Champion of Coldplay. Chris had long curly hair back then, so when he played he tied it up in a ponytail on top of his head. He looked like a poodle, so we called him Pooch.
