Success and a Port

July 4, 2007

Well, thats a second meal to be added to the keepers list.

The hearts complimented the olives. I love the bitter but not taste. The main thing is I’m stuffed again on the vegan stuff. Literally my tummy is sticking out :/

Had another good convo in a irc channel I don’t usually frequent. It was spoiled however by a bit of a cock. I would post the convo here but it has lots of trigger stuff in it which i cant be bothered to edit. I did somehow manage to come out having seemed to have taken the moral high ground, which is strange as I not really that moral at all. Oh yeah, here is my ported #radio leaving thingy:

:,( Bye Bye

July 1st, 2007

Good evening all.
I have decided to resign from radio. This is for a number of reasons. Although I have been with radio since the start, near enough, I don’t feel that it is moving in the right direction anymore. In fact I dont think it is moving in any direction.
Sadly all the bad feeling between DJ’s bubbles under the surface without being dealt with, there is no need to name names as it’s pretty clear to most. So lets leave that at that.

The effort just isnt there anymore, and it takes more than a couple of chatters/dj’s to fix it. I’m sick of watching Dj’s chat away quite happily on other servers and in other rooms in plain view while the room stagnates.
To be honest, I have better things to do with my time, even if they are at the computer. We have had gapping holes in the schedule for months and nothing happens. We have gapping holes in chat and nothing happens. There is no energy, things will trundle on, and if it wasnt for the fact that we are on the frostwire network which means chatters/listeners tend to appear without effort, then the radio i know would fade away.
Yes radio is a fun place to be, where people and dj’s should just come to unwind, but as with all things in life, there does need to be a small amount of effort put in, outside of turning up to DJ and the small monies involved that is, and I challenge anyone to show me that effort.

More and more lately I have found myself drifting off from really caring about what happens and I find that sad, as I have put a huge amount of my time into radio over the years, literally years. I don’t see the need to list things, if you know you know. When I first started in radio there was always ‘lets do this to get listeners’, or ‘lets do that’. I don’t see it anymore. I like things to be dynamic, when i turn up day in day out and nothing is going on it bores me. When I watch the politics, it bores me. When something bores you so much and so often its kinda time to take stock.

I love Djing, because I like playing the tunes I like and i like the social interaction. But I hate turning up to an empty channel, and seeing parts and joins with no chat because nobody can be bothered to drive the room. I don’t like the fact it takes me half an hour to get a decent chat going and mostly I hate the fact that noone does anything about it. Who gives a shit about time differences. I stayed up nights so we had a live Dj in the old days, I’m not saying I’m anything special, but jesus, if you are chatting on irc, make the effort in #radio, and don’t tell me you all go to bed as your time zone dictates. I did try to make an effort, but got slapped down for it without being slapped down for it, basically. Whatever happened, the message was loud and clear.
Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of DJ’s that I admire, I wish I could be half as good as them, but that isn’t really the point I have been trying to make.

I guess I can sum it all up like this:
I’m bored, and I don’t see anything changing anytime soon because the will isnt there. New challenges await in my life and I’m not keen on sitting in front of the computer frustrated and pissed off, because thats what radio does to me a lot of the time these days. I have left once before and returned, so never say never, but for now, its so long and goodbye!

PS, you are all ugly.

PPS, I’m gonna do my set on Sunday, my last hurrah!
