Settling into the new house

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life Aug 22 2013 · 86 views

Well, after a couple of days of unpacking we're starting to settle into the new house. My room is pretty much done now, although not that it matters much anyway, since in just over a month I'll be packing my things up again for university.
Still, just need to unpack a few more things and hang up some posters and it'll be set. It's a fair bit smaller than my room in the old house, but again it doesn't really matter as I won't be spending much time here once I'm back at university.
 
Took some pictures (which are of poor quality because it's 11:30 pm and thus there's no natural light... and maybe I'm no longer as good with a camera as I like to think): [1] [2] [3] [4]
 
My desk and bookshelf are a lot smaller than the old ones so a lot of my stuff will have to stay in boxes and be stored under my bed or on top of my wardrobe. Only have enough room for half of my CDs on the shelf :P Also not enough room for a chair, so I have to awkwardly sit on the edge of my bed when I want to use the computer.

Moving

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life Aug 19 2013 · 108 views

Well, it seems like I just got back home with all my stuff from university, and now it's all packed up again as my parents are moving house tomorrow.
I quite enjoy moving. It's a lot of work, and we definitely have a ton more stuff to pack up and transport to the new house than we did when we moved here, but something about packing your things up is really fun. Especially when you find some belonging that you have completely forgotten about, like when I found my Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon Yu-Gi-Oh! card earlier today. Sure was a nostalgic moment.
 
I also tend to take forever to pack my stuff because I like to sit there and go through each individual thing before putting it in a box.

CDs are definitely my favourite thing to pack. So many things to look through and so many "oh, forgot I had that. Should listen to it again some time" moments.

Then there are books, which are also awesome. At first I was going to put them all into one bag but quickly came to the conclusion that it would be far too heavy to move, even without my university books.

And you know, as much as I prefer buying games physically rather than digitally, I am pretty grateful that I don't have an extra 100+ copies of games to carry from my Steam library.
Also found some of my PS2 games, which again, brought nostalgia. Will get the console and the rest of the games down from the loft tomorrow and probably spend a good chunk of time playing them once we move.
 
Unfortunately, it's apparently going to take Sky up to two weeks to set up the internet in our new house, so might be stuck with having to use my phone for that for a while.

Tragic Illusion

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Music Aug 17 2013 · 147 views

So, Paradise Lost just announced this thing:
 
Posted Image
 
Tragic Illusion 25 (The Rarities), which will be released on the 25th of October to celebrate the band's 25th anniversary and will be a compilation of rarities and B-sides from over the years. It will also contain a brand new song - Loneliness Remains - as well as re-recorded versions of Gothic and Our Saviour.
I'll definitely be picking this up. I already have five of the songs from limited edition copies of albums, but I am interested in the rest.

Velcra

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Music Aug 01 2013 · 69 views

Well, I thought I'd share an album I recently discovered and am loving: Hadal by Velcra.
Velcra made some great industrial metal with their first two albums, but the fantastic third album Hadal is more of a combination of industrial rock, electronic and trip hop. I almost want to say that it's like a heavier, industrial version of Portishead.
 


 
Unfortunately, I am completely unable to find a copy of the album for sale anywhere. The best I could find was the MP3 download on Amazon, but no sign of a CD copy.

Joining the YouTube Fun

Posted by Ghost of Romance , Jul 25 2013 · 67 views

So I'm just gonna jump in on the tide of YouTube posts and leave one of my favourite pieces of music here:
 

 
 
Being able to do this certainly is nice. Should make the 'Rate The Song Above You' topic a lot easier too.

Oh look, I have a new spinny

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Daily Life Jul 22 2013 · 68 views

That's seven years I've been on BZP now, which is a pretty long time actually. The more I think about it the older it makes me feel.
 
Not much else to blog about besides that.
The Steam sale is coming to an end, and as much as I dislike buying digital games when physical copies of them are available, couldn't resist picking up a couple of bigger titles, as well as some indie stuff.
Didn't think that the sale was all that great though. It seemed like the same handful of games going on sale again and again. Granted, there were lots of great indie games with big discounts throughout the whole sale.

Industrial

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Music Jul 08 2013 · 87 views

So, Front Line Assembly are currently streaming their new album - Echogenetic - for free and after my first listen, it seems really good.
I'd just like to say what a fantastic year for industrial music it is:
 

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

 
Fantastic albums by Skinny Puppy and Front Line Assembly, as well as an upcoming album by Nine Inch Nails.
What are my three favourite - as well as three of the most influential - bands in the genre each releasing an album this year is a great thing.

University Results

Posted by Ghost of Romance , in Education Jun 28 2013 · 95 views

Well, I got my results for my first year of university today and I am very happy because I passed, with a B in each module. Not that I thought I was going to fail, but it's a massive relief nonetheless to know that I'll definitely be coming back next year.
I guess now I can truly relax for the rest of summer.

I'm Back

I just got back from my holiday in France.
I enjoyed it greatly, but it is now time to return to all the nothing I have to do.
