    I'm interested in anything arty and creative, anything geeky and especially anything musical.
    I fill my time with painting, drawing, listening to and making music, playing on and building up computers, and travelling with my boyfriend.
    I love making new friends and would especially like to make some local friends since i just moved to the Island to be with family, and don't know anyone here yet! :(
  1. Hope your finding your feet now :)

  2. Its pretty lame when a person can't even have an opinion or try to post a message of respect toward someone without being grilled or mocked. I have nothing further to add.
  3. Do you mean the Corn Mill Cafe? Grey building with red windows? My boyfriend works there, it's run by a family friend. It's been a long time in the opening but i can recommend it as a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. defo handy when visiting the wheel! I'll be sure to ask if they're planning on putting some more info about the place up online because it's been mentioned that it's not all that clear to see its actually there, (lack of signs etc). Glad you enjoyed your visit though i'll pass on your comments!
  4. The iBook was my machine of choice and i don't go for windows machines regardless of the specs. Too buggy for me with regards to Cubase specifically. Each to their own but the iBook isn't the only apple computer i own, it was just that one that i had more of an emotional connection towards.
  5. Actually Cubase isn't solely for presets. Far from it really, and i'm not even an avid user of it, i prefer not to if i have a choice but in College i didn't until during year 2 i was set loose on the protools rig. With Cubase you've got full advantage of being able to record audio into the sequencer, as well as being able to plug and play any Instruments or USB equipment like synths and record in realtime or steptime, as well as program the VST's built into the program. I actually only used to use Cubase for the rewire function between it and Reason.. so that i had full use of both programs and could include my own audio recordings as well as the MIDI.. because Reason, being one of the most noteable virtual studio software didn't have this function. You need computers with enough memory and a fast enough HDD to be able to run the programs in rewire without worrying too much about Latency. But, you already knew all of this, what with being cocky and all I'm not gonna argue with you though, my personal choice was to use my iBook for my work, and i wouldn't have done it any other way because it allowed me to get so much more done compared to the guys, who were limited.
  6. Hi there, i hope you wont mind this but i'm a supporter of the Mann Cat Sanctuary? They have a page on facebook called Lost and Found Cats. http://www.facebook.com/lostandfoundcats.iom After reading this topic i posted on the page for you hoping someone might be able to help.. you can see what i've wrote there, it should be the top post on the page at the moment. The sanctuary is amazing and i know there's a lot of people who regularly check the page, so hopefully by getting the word out, maybe someone will have some information for you. I hope you won't mind that i did this but my cat was my world (i had to have him put to sleep in April, at 21 years old) and i can't even imagine how concerned you must be, so i thought i'd try to help in any way i could. Best wishes and i hope he comes home safely. Keep us posted!
  7. I was hoping to go on one of the bat walks.. It was being held in Laxey yesterday evening (saturday 8th) but when i tried to sign up at the Manx Museum they told me the walk was full, and that it might even be called off because of rain anyway. Was a bit gutted actually, i'd only found out about the walk a day or two ago but i didn't know about the Bat Group website, so hopefully i'll be able to catch another one soonish They are gorgeous, and lots of fun to watch.
  8. Feels a bit warm tonight, is it just me?

  9. I adore looking at the old historical photos of the Island. I may not be Manx born but three generations of my family before me were and they themselves have photos from over the years, of how it's all changed. I saw many prints of old photos in the Railway Museum in Port Erin. Stood looking at them for hours actually, they're gorgeous.
  10. The menu does look very well thought out.. I'm a great lover of homemade soups and fresh bread so i know i'd be guilty of giving that one a try.. One question i do have though, is the only main course vegetarian option the vegetarian lasagne? I noticed you mentioned calling ahead if there was something specific someone wanted to order but i would have expected perhaps more than just the 1 option already on the menu? The Sides and Desserts look fab, and people's reviews have really encouraged me to try the place.
  11. I like to be one of those people who try to live by the motto "never regret anything, because at one point in time all of your choices were exactly what you wanted", however sometimes it's not quite so black and white... life can also sometimes be very grey. Most of the time i look at myself currently, and who i was in the past as two seperate people.. Or at least i like to try to. I didn't like who i used to be. I was, for a long time, in a very abusive and controlling relationship and i'd been turned into someone who i didn't like being. During this time, i hurt a lot of people who are very dear to me, myself included, and especially over the last 5 years i've really been hit in the face with the realisation that life is just too short to live it not being true to yourself and others. I didn't want to risk something happening, either to me or to someone i love, for me then to be remembered as something that i'm not. Some things, many things had to change. So i do really try hard not to regret things that happened in the past that i'm not proud of, because those things have helped me to move on and grow into a better person.. and i wouldn't be who i am today without them having happened to me, for me to learn those lessons. I'm human, i make mistakes and i learn from them. Today, i'm such a positive person. I'm exactly where i need to be, and even though things might not always be "perfect", they're certainly much more comfortable, and i know i'm in a much better position and frame of mind now to get to where i want to be in life.
  12. Let it be known i honestly didn't feel offence towards anyone, just maybe got worried about perhaps offending some locals who are more traditional than most? Anyhow, share the love, all is cool here. I've never actually done the whole "trick or treat thing", granted i did actually spend a portion of my time in America while growing up so in some ways i am Americanised i suppose, but not towards this holiday since my mum is Manx, as i said earlier. My family are Manx and Irish, so i have celtic traditions passionately running through my veins and i wouldn't wish it to be any other way! I'll be honest, i love a nice pumpkin or two because i just think they're pretty, but i love just as much to carve and hollow out the turnips and squashes too! (I have about 3 sets of professional carving tools.. i could spend all day carving them and making them look pretty!) Autumn is just a special time for me all round, and i like nothing better than getting friends together for a nice apple dunking, lantern carving, party food eating and a drink. Usually we do things like spin your own toffee apples and costume competitions too. Fireworks and sparkly things are a bonus! So besides the organised festivities on the Island is anyone planning anything smaller and more intimate? I don't know enough people yet to throw a party! HAHA
  13. Ive no idea why you think Im annoyed at you. Im not! I acually thought Id wished you well in my reply ..... let me check ... Yes I did. I think my comment was more towards Passing Time and macmannin, i just wanted to cover myself against anyone feeling offended or annoyed. Thank you muchly for your well wishes though it's appreciated
  14. Don't worry - some people are just naturally grumpy! Hope you have a great time at hop tu naa and good to see people keeping old traditions alive. Thanks so much, thats lovely of you.
