How to get your demo heard

I thought this might be of interest to more than a few of you:
http://www.attackmagazine.com/features/how-to-get-your-demo-
heard-and-your-track-released/

Attack magazine talks to multiple record labels about the do's and donts of sending demos to labels.

Not really... I lurk a lot though.

I think I can feel you lurking sometimes. When I'm on a forum. Reading the messages. Typing my responses. Then there's this cold tingle up my spine. I stop typing. There's a sudden chill as if someone left a door open. I get goose bumps, and a growing sensation there's someone behind me. First I'm like "Ah that's not possible, I'm completely alone here." Still I'm unable to type. The feeling gets stronger. Until it becomes unbearable and I'm convinced there's someone's watching. I jerk around abruptly, but. No one there. I look around to make sure, but there's nobody. Still the presence lingers. Then I realize it comes from my computer. And I know it's Back-From-Purgatory . Lurking. I return to the seat in front of my computer, and quickly delete the piece of mind I intended to give that douchebag who thought he was smarter than me. I remove that demotivational poster that took me halve an hour to photoshop a horses ass to Justin Biebers face (and still wouldn't look any different). I turn of my computer, and go to bed. From my blank monitor I can still see Back-From-Purgatory nodding "Yeah that's right. You walk away.". Then I lie there. Unable to sleep. Yet so gratefull I didn't post that message.

I'd hate you less if you made good metal instead.

Spooning

It's been a while since I went home with a girl for a 'nightcap' after a party but this Wednesday it finally happened again (there was no sex, in case anybody wonders). So after all the making out and stuff we decided to go to sleep and I was to be the big spoon. I lay down on my right side and all I could think was: 'My right arm is going to die tonight...' Guys, where do you keep it?! I tried to put it under the pillow but that tears your shoulder apart, I tried hugging her with it but it was uncomfortable for her and her body squeezed my veins, and I tried putting my right hand underneath my head but that resulted in my elbow constantly poking in her back. Eventually I just went for the first option and woke up with extreme shoulder pain.

I'm pretty sure not everyone here is a socially awkward nerd who faints as soon as a girl speaks to him so there must be someone who can give me some advice on this. My shoulder still hurts.

You just.. stop spooning it and lay comfortably as soon as the position starts getting uncomfortable? Honestly though, spooning is only comfortable if you push two beds together and you can leave your arm between the two mattresses, or something like that.

I would not at all recommend sleeping in the position, for the reasons you've experienced.

It's your arm you complain about? What about your boner? Skip the spooning, and go straight to the forking. Afterwards go to sleep normally on your back. Or back to back (which is called knifing, or so I'm told) No pillow talk, no spooning, no nonsense. Life is too short. Ignore the soup when the main course is already served.

Slip your damn arm under the pillow. It acts as a shield and prevents your arm from falling asleep/ feeling pain. Nuzzle city.

Spooning

Sorry, didn't read the OP. Putting your arm under the pillow fucks up your arm? Do some friggen yoga. Fact: girls love yoga. Do it with them and encourage them to wear yoga pants. Fuck it, wear yoga pants with them and slip on a cod piece...

I've given this lots of thought. Now post a pic of yourself so I think about it even deeper.

No. I like spooning. It's cozy.

She didn't mind the boner (she told me she felt it, which is a good thing I guess). Also she was wearing panties and I was wearing a boxer so forking wasn't really possible.\

I took on yoga believing it would make you levitate, shoot fire from your mouth, and enable you to extend your arms by meters. It was rather disappointing though.

I was rather disappointed too. I took on yoga believing it would relax me mentally and physically, and I ended up levitating, shooting fire from my mouth and extending my arms by meters.

So my final exams just got over today...and with it the 4 years of my engineering course. Time to partay. :D

Can't say how glad I am to put all the projects and assignments and everything else behind me. It was just a total pain. But there are fun moments to remember.

I haven't been able to get a job yet though. But keep trying right? :>

Sorry for potential double posting (or posting in the wrong thread, even), but does anyone here play SimCity (SimCity 4 preferably)?

If yes, how in the fuck do you make money whilst keeping the upkeep low?
If no, dfihug
