Aye exactly, I've not had any time to commit to anything. And that's not forgetting all the other non-FSOL music I've collated. And not forgetting I originally spent most my time making music. And not forgetting that I spend probably more time with retro and indie games than with music. My pile of everything (films,music,games,books,music apps and plugins) has just become too much - so I've decided enough is enough. No more buying !

Oh God yeah, my purchases are going to drop massively this year, hopefully limiting myself to only a handful of records over the year - maybe one a month, and a bit of music gear.

Pete - you're seriously going to miss Environments 5?!

Don't worry I'm sure your resolution will come crashing down soon and you can buy both the Cartell albums ;)

I'm thinking about buying them soon - I don't have any AA stuff yet, and I want to go through it chronologically, but I don't want them to sell out before I get them. I've still got loads of FSOL stuff to listen to yet though, before I even move on to AA :shock: Pande is probably right, I should listen to nothing but FSOL so I can catch up... I have greedy ears though...

I was thinking about making a New Year's present for myself either a Korg Volca Bass synth or a Mini Kaoss Pad 2 effects processor so that I dont have to be stuck in front of the computer screen, but dont know if they are worth it.

was that to me seedy? :) Just saw Ross mentioning some music gear and wrote down some thoughts of mine in case somebody can give feedback on these two devices.

OK so it now looks like what was a nice little plan of 2014 is actually going to have be a way of living in 2015, I have no money. Like today I had to balance money for Christmas presents for my family with food for the rest of the month. Something went horribly wrong this year in saving and I really have no idea what it was :(

Thanks guys, yeah I'm sure it'll be OK - I'm just usually known as the one in the family that buys great gifts for everyone so I feel really bad to disappoint them all.

that's all material stuff anyway man
imo if a person can't see beyond that then they don't deserve a gift in the first place :P


i'm sure i said it earlier in this thread back whenever.....but yeah i f'n hate christmas
hate with a purple passion
i too have no f'n money for this - yet here i am feeling obligated too

i'll admit that there is a different positive reward that i never had in the past now that i have a kid....but really if i could have a vote i would surely cast away this horrible materialistic guilt ridden poopshow :D
