Hi, I am a beginner guitar player who wants to one day become a rockstar/vocaloid star

I need prescription glasses but instead wear prescription sunglasses 24/7 (except when I'm on my laptop in bed)

I think its great training for when I'm a rockstar as it makes it a bit harder to play and I don't even notice that I'm wearing them the whole time

but my friend is saying that it could damage my eyes to be wearing sunglasses all the time. I think this is crap (and I said "maybe its beneficial to wear sunglasses all the time!")

Besides, presumably when I get a job again I won't be able to wear them anymore (although I could just make it a "thing" once I settle in)

Anyway since the subject came up, does anyone here wear sunglasses to train to become a rockstar or otherwise dress like a rockstar all the time?

I don't know any famous musicians except the girls from Babymetal but my sister said I look like Sixto Rodriguez which seems like a cool thing. I'm 30 so I guess I kinda look old like him too (not that old obviously)

I look like this 90% of the time in order to keep up my rockstar persona

ehhhh not sure this one's true

yeah if you wanna be a true rocker, just wear the shades all day, don't matter weather or lighting or prescription really. basically, you make sure you are never in a situation where you need prescription lenses to live. you can also get tinted glasses, like tinted windows in a car where it looks black but on your side you see (closer to) normal. nice when you gotta do a night run to the shop and can't see anything

op0-extra credit goes out to legit patches on denim vest, but if it isn't like legit 80's patches, it looks too tryhard

the prescription lenses are darkened into sunglasses but i reckon if i make enough money from live gigs i can get that special eye surgery done anyway
#13
and then just wear normal sunglasses 24/7?

Glamorous Sky is a great song and deserves better than this.

Wear contacts.

Now go out and get yourself some big black frames
With the glass so dark they won't even know your name
And the choice is up to you cause they come in two classes
Rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses

yeah but i found out all tins contain this mildly toxic substance someone told me to avoid called Bisphenol A (BPA)

i had to harrass Tesco's facebook for like 2 weeks but they finally gave me a properly reply

I am sorry about the delay.
Yes, we do use BPA. Bisphenol A (BPA) is commonly used as a starting component in the production of epoxy phenolic resins that are then used as can lining materials. All of our can linings meet the requirements of amended EC Directive 2002/72/EC (plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs). This directive quotes a specific migration limit for bis phenol A in food of 0.6mg/kg.
The European Food Standards Agency has regularly re-evaluated bis phenol A and concluded that the limit quoted provides sufficient margin of safety for protection of the consumer.
At this time there are no suitable alternative can linings available for us to use with these products and removal of these linings would expose consumers to unacceptably high levels of tin as well as increasing the risk of post process microbiological contamination. As soon as a proven alternative is available we will evaluate its performance in our products.
Kind regards
Gemma


only the thing is i had just purchased literally 50 tins of stuff so sort of put my foot in it with that one

look they're still piled up i'm slowly getting through them

#28
some tesco/asda/etc 'value' stuff has pretty much like no difference to the brand stuff, and finding the ones that are just as good as the brand is great. you just end up saving money for not choosing a 'designer' brand

I used to get a bunch of spices and stuff from the 'value' or other store-brand. Lots of stuff really doesn't need to be fancy because i'm not cooking at a michellin restaurant or whatever.

although I hate not having a salt and pepper grinder, so that one is a bit more expensive, but yeah.

yeah theres no practical difference
i'm switching back to frozen (value) veg tho after i finish these tins. frozen veg is a tiny bit more expensive and less convenient but there's zero random chemicals/preservatives added to it as far as i know (unlike tins)


what about this for an album cover

#30
yeh most frozen value things aren't bad. i'm against the frozen bags of chicken breasts, cause itls like "20% water!" and ugh. i mean, that's why it's the value, but it's awful

#31
BPA is just one of many mildly toxic substances I ingest. My problem with frozen veg is that its like 80% water, same with all frozen foods, you cook them and they shrink due to the water evaporating

you need to sort that bin out there mate

You should make a separate thread for this picture. The pit will help you design album covers outa this.

When Percydw becomes a famous rockstar we can dig this thread back up and embarrass him with it.

Also if you want to wear sunglasses all the time just do it.
I have nothing important to say
