I have now deduced that I need one of them pedal things that records loops. 

Electric is a whole new world.  It's like playing a new instrument that I'm magically already proficient in.

The Digitech RP 255 is a great and cheap place to start (it was for me). Effects pedal with looper at a very cheap price. Look into it!

A looper?
My vote goes to the ditto looper. It's half the price, true bypass, takes up 2-3 fingers of pedal board real estate and has a single switch (as simple as it gets to operate).

Ditto looper looks more my speed.  I like simplicity.  (The RP255 is apparently discontinued now, so I wonder how long ago you started MWeb37  :P )

Though, I do think a pedal that includes the ability to make simple drum beats would be nice.  Nothing too fancy.

Do you know how I know you've been here a long time? You ask questions like this... You know how to play piano, right?

You don't like fish, right?

I noticed that for the last few years, I gain weight in the spring and summer, so on holiday in the summer, I feel a little tubby.  Not fat, but at 6 foot and about 87kgs, I can feel it.  Then with no change in diet (vegetarian) and with less exercise (because of weekday night classes and the awful dust) I actually lose weight without noticing in the autumn and now, so in the winter holidays I'm much thinner, and feel it.  Maybe it's just me with the seasonal weight changes, but not sure why?
Iím the opposite.

Iím less inclined to walk places and more inclined to eat comfort food when the weather gets cold.

Your body burns more calories when you are cold. But I don't think that would lead to noticeable weight loss.

You say no change in diet, but the vegetarian dining options aren't as good in the winter.

Yeah, there's less available in the winter.  I worked as a chef in Sweden for four years and couple that with my mum educating me well about how to eat healthily as a vegetarian, I make sure I get all the vitamins etc that I need.  I can't eat junk food here in Korea, as there is no vegetarian option available.  But I still eat egg and chips, pizza, my naughty nachos on Fridays, are a few so I still have food that is high in calories.  Koreans always marvel a little at my frame, as they think all vegetarians are chopstick thin people.  One of my vps years ago saw me playing football and was amazed I could run and play really strongly.  It didn't know where to start when correcting him on that one.

Come on Dave; you're on course to win the November 2017 humble brag cup with a single post!! haha  :wink: :wink:

I'm becoming increasingly more paranoid over my posts on this forum being too identifiable to me irl, so I'm thinking about trashing this account and starting over.

But then I lose my "Hero" status. These are hard decisions.

As for winter, I lose weight myself because I tend to become even more active than I already am. I love cold weather and I frolick in it whenever I can. I don't think my diet really changes all that much. I have a friend who tends to eat more meat and less starchy foods during cold weather, though, and that leads to weight-loss for her.

Yes, this is the correct mentality to hold. If people don't like your internet persona, fuck 'em.

And Chinguetti, please don't leave or change accounts, this place is already turning into a ghost town. Plus I'd miss your AJUMMA SMASH signature pic.  :smiley:

I don't have a problem with fellow expats being able to indentify me.

I'm just concerned about Korean lurkers. There's a lot of pettiness afoot in the working world in general, and foreigners are easy targets here. Couple that with the fact that I do have some haters I have to deal with on a regular basis, and that's just drama I'd rather avoid. xD

And thanks, DMZ. xD Yeah, not too likely to delete my account unless I get a whiff of some bullshit irl that I might be able to trace back to waygook. So far, so good.

Well, I was in rural Suwon and I went to get the last train at Yeongtong Station. And the farmer gave me directions and I got lost. So, I wandered. Lucky for me I had a road beer and a pack of smokes. So I walked, and I walked, and I came across the Holy Trinity; A GS25, a seolleongtang resto and a jjimjilbang, all next to each other. Had a hot bowl of soup, grabbed a Grolsch and proceeded to have a hot shower (after having walked an hour in the cold rain).

Wow! This jjimjilbang even had little alcoves for individuals to sleep in! I hate Dragon Hill for this reason. One giant floor. One time an ajeossi put his arm on me, FFS.

This was 1230AM Sunday. I hadn't slept the night before (Friday night), found out my mate's mom is really sick, so we stayed up all night then headed to the farm at lunch. Slept 1230AM to Noon. Glorious.

Made my way to AK Plaza. Food Town!!!

Went home and proceeded to prepare for my Anyang Meet and Eat one year anniversary dinner. Oi vey.

No spicy poop. The chili was too small.

I feel after eating something like a ghost pepper hearing someone warn you about the spice level of your galbi mandu or gimchi dzigae must be extra special annoying. As it is it's already the one thing Koreans say that makes my eye twitch here, and I can' say that I've eaten anything close to a ghost pepper.



Kudos on eating that little sucker though. You handled it better than most folks I've seen who say they can eat super hot shit.  8)
