What's New?

Absolutely gutted.

My band’s rehearsal space burned down last night. All of our gear was in there, everything we own, thousands of pounds worth of instruments, microphones, amplifiers, PA equipment that has taken years to accumulate… and it’s just gone.

Feeling completely numb right now.


#6555

Oh shit that sucks hard. Was anything insured?


#6556

No, but the owner of the building has insurance - It’s gonna take a long time to figure all that out, though. For now, all band related things are going on hold.


#6557

Okay, this is getting worse. Apparently there was a huge explosion preceding the fire and there’s a chance people may have been in the building at the time.

We can replace our gear, but you can’t replace life. I really hope nobody was in there.


#6558

What kind of building was it exactly? A storage building?


#6559

It was a warehouse on an industrial estate with converted units. We leased an acoustically treated room designed to be a rehearsal space and shared it with 2 or 3 other bands. I know there’s a mechanics workshop on the ground floor but apparently the fire started upstairs near our room.


#6560

holy shit. i hope at least no one got hurt! And also a good thing you didnt took than Loan for the new microphone :wink:

Hope everything will turn out good :slight_smile:

Did you forgot your Mixtape there? :grin:


#6561

Oh that’s still happening. I can’t put that off. I’m just gonna have to find a way to finance it all.


#6562

yeah, but i meant you didnt had the loan for the new mic and two days after it burned with your Room :slight_smile:


#6563

Update - It doesn’t appear anyone was hurt. However, the building has been condemned and is a potential crime scene. Our stuff is almost certainly destroyed.


#6564

Fuuuccck! I’m terribly sorry to hear about your misfortune, man. Maybe take some time off for a little R&R.


#6565

That sucks man. At least nobody got hurt/killed.

My little Hamontaro passed away some minutes ago. Yesterday and pretty late at night the fella had an anal prolapse and his innards came out. Was bleeding a lot and no vets avaible so the best we could get was to call our vet and she told me to stuff his intestine inside again. Had to do it 2 times.

Tried to keep him as warm for the night and took him to the vet ASAP this morning.

Was looking better but in the middle of him waking up, moving and Dr. injecting him, once again his intestines came out and bleeding again. She told me that there was no way around it and this would keep happening so had to put to sleep the sweet baby.


What fucking crap of a day.


#6567

Shit, never heard of an anal prolapse until now but it must be fucking painful. Sorry for your loss. Sounds like putting him to sleep was the only thing to do.


#6568

Sorry to hear. Just got back from the vet too. My Siamese sassy has been losing weight. Looks like lymphoma maybe a few weeks to a couple months.
She’s the one on the left with the big eyes.


#6569

Damn man, what a shit day of HMF news.
Hope all you guys are okay, I know its hard at the moment but try to keep your spirits up, my thoughts are with you.


#6570

Yeah, today fucking blows to be honest. I try not to be too materialistic but my instruments are like an extension of me. Really feels like a good chunk of my life went up in smoke today.


#6571

@scm97tl so sorry to hear that!! but it was probably the best for the little Fellow, now he doesnt suffer anymore :frowning:

Dont worry Guys, Life is shit sometimes but at some point it can only get better. Heads up!
