        My best dating advice: be genuine. You don't want to be with someone who doesn't enjoy who you really are.

        Regarding signals, communicate if you're uncertain. Heck, communicate even if you're quite sure. "Reading signals" is for Hollywood. It's actually very attractive if someone has the maturity to straight up ask you if they can hold your hand/kiss you/etc. The worst you'll hear is "no", and that's way less awkward than the pull-back!

        That's what has me so smitten with this lass - I can be totally myself around her and she just gets it. We're craaaaazy alike. We talk totally openly and honestly, and it's just so dayum *nice* not to worry about games or whatever.

        Heavy! The production sounds really good - only thing I noticed was that the mix was a maybe a tad bottom-heavy? (listening on Audio-Technica ATH-M40X for reference) I feel like the guitars would really shine with a bit more midrange too. Not to disparage the arrangement though, this rocks! Nice job dude!

        Yeah, good ear, the guitars are fairly bottom-heavy - played on a Schecter Hellraiser 7string and my amps are really bottom-heavy (using a custom mix of Guitar Rig and S-Gear sims), and I layered them even more than I usually do. They deffo need some carving in the lows (I should honestly just tweak that in the amps lol)

        Also - that trumpet solo, man. Totally off the cuff and I spent a good while giggling to myself afterwards.

      Every time I think about getting CoD WWII, there's something new totally wrong with it that turns me away..

        I've been looking for a shooter that really fills that gap where I used to love CoD so much, and honestly just haven't found it. I was really hopeful about WWII but ... I dunno, for the price, I don't see it as worth it just to see if I like it. If it's ever half off or something I'll pick it up..

        Makes sense. I have been the same about it for awhile. I had high hopes, really. I'm okay with it, but as for the expectations I had of it reviving my love for this concept...eh? I am glad they got rid of the damned jetpacks though. XD

        I really enjoyed the campaign in Infinite Warfare, their last game. I'd like to eventually get WWII for the campaign, too. Never enjoyed any COD game for multiplayer.

        Lovely metal cover. It's also one of my favourite X-mas tracks, probably one of the few that I don't tire of hearing every year.

        On the floor, she was plugging in an old iPhone she'd just unpacked and said that while putting it to charge, then as she was saying it, pulled on the cable with her foot and flung the phone. It was glorious and I will never let her live it down.
