yeah same here, can’t remember what I did with my time! Brighton are taking on fresh meat pretty soon I think, been training up for it 🙂 so annoying, missed their last intake by a couple of months!
Ahh you’ll get in no problem with four months of training yourself up!! Brighton have an awesome new venue that they skate in – they’re so lucky!
Soon. Soooooooon. Right now we are all too busy shitting ourselves over the fact that we’re playing Dublin in 4 weeks to do fresh meat stuff. Once you start, I can guarantee that Mistress, Derby McGee, Shambolic and Rose Bleed will kick you ass until you’re awesome 😉
I have to wake up in 7 hours. Have kittens. My gift to you.
Day 3 of ‘The A Team’ by Ed Sheeran.
Not entirely sure how I feel about this one. I think my vocals are a lot clearer but kind of.. rubbish. I’m not really sure how to get some life into my voice without it cracking. I might just have a ‘go for it’ day tomorrow and belt it, just for funsies.
Also, I tried using a felt pick on my guitar which felt a lot nicer & less harsh so I’ll stick with that for the time being. I’m looking at steel string guitars as I’m not really happy with the overall sound of my nylons! If the guitar sounds a bit weird, it’s because I recorded it like 4 times before I was happy with it, then set up my mic/settings for vocals and my computer went ‘NOPE. SORRY. DON’T LIKE THAT’ and deleted the guitar part. No way was I going to set it all up again, so I just powered through. Fuq dat shit!
Definitely happier with my strum pattern today anyway, will polish it even more tomorrow. Plus I’m starting to get hard skin on the pads of my fingers so that will help counteract buzziness 😀 it’s all coming together!
I have steel strings on my (electric) guitar if you want to try it out sometime? My mum’s old acoustic has them as well, but I can’t actually reach it in the garage (yet)…Tags: 10 day song, 10daysong, cover, day 3, ed sheeran, guitar, The A Team

This version. Part of Your World. Oh. My. Gosh.
It’s not about your image. Fuck your image. It’s not about uniforms, glitter and fishnet tights. It’s not about the kudos of being able to say you are a ‘rollergirl’. It’s also not all about getting to bout at the expense of skimping on your minimum skills. In fact, it’s not about you at all. It’s about being part of something bigger than yourself. It’s about ALWAYS wanting to be better than your last training session, your last bout. You should always play to win – otherwise, why bother? It’s about the blood, sweat and tears it takes to play this game, and taking pride in yourself and your team. It’s about self-discipline and always, ALWAYS giving 100% no matter what. It’s about learning how to be a cog in a much greater machine; you should always want what is best for your team and you should conduct yourself in a manner befitting of this at all times. Drama is such a waste of time – why hate when you can skate?
If you want to do this, then do whatever it takes to be the best that you can be. No excuses: just great roller derby.
For even the most ardent feminist historian, male or female -citing Amazons and tribal matriarchs and Cleopatra- can’t conceal that women have basically done fuck all for the last 100,000 years. Come on – let’s admit it. Let’ts admit it. Let’s stop exhaustingly pretending that there is a parallel history of women being victorious and creative, on an equal with men, that’s just been covered up by The Man. There isn’t. Our empires, armies, cities, artworks, philosophers, philanthropists,inventors, scientists, astronauts, explorers, politicians and icons could all fit, comfortably, into one of the private karaoke booths in SingStar. We have no Mozart ; no Einstein; no Galileo; no Ghandi. No Beatles, no Churchill, no Hawking, no Columbus. It just didn’t happen.
Nearly everything so far has been the creation of men- and a liberal, right -on denial of it makes everything more awkward and difficult in the only run. Pretending that women have had a pop at all this before but just ultimately didn’t do as well as the men, that the experiment of female liberation has already happened but floundered gives strength to the belief that women simply aren’t as good as men.
