It's actually a very decent paper in parts, the trouble is that they put out so much content that some of it is bound to be crap (especially the endless Kardashian articles). But oftentimes I'll find that their coverage of a story is far more in depth than most newspapers, including some of the more "serious" broadsheets. Especially when some big event, disaster or terrorist attack happens. They usually have very extensive photographic documentation of the scene, way more eyewitness accounts and way more info than other media outlets.

Do they go into proper serious matters like how the top dart players in the world are now Dutch and not English?

I always say the best smokes you have are the ones you've earned. I always got better results smoking after work of some kind. Never understood the "wake and bake" mindset. 
 
Back in 1991 me and my old man worked a milk delivery route together. We'd work from about 2am until 9am, often in the freezing cold and it was hard work lugging those crates around. When we were done we'd share a joint on the drive home. That was one well deserved smoke and I loved it. Then he'd drop me off at my place and I'd smoke another one with the headphones on. I wish I could limit it to "every other weekend" or something like that, but the trouble is if I get a bit these days I cannot resist having a toke every night. One thing that's great if you're a "once in a blue moon" smoker like me is listening to the music you're working on after a toke. Sometimes when you're working on a track for a long time you can lose perspective, get disillusioned and disheartened with it. And then you listen to it with stoned ears and you think "wow, this is actually pretty good!" It restores my enthusiasm in what I'm working on. 




I once read an interview with Lindsey Buckingham and he said that he frequently toked up when he was mixing his tracks- for the same reason you give. I think you are on to something, here.

Silence is so accurate

While I'm certain of the value of weed as a creative/inspirational tool, I'm not sure it's advisable to mix on it. The reason being is that I think marijuana plays tricks with your ears. In my case, it seems to greatly enhance the separation of instruments on the soundstage. There have been times when I have wrestled with trying to EQ instruments that are clashing, and feeling like it's probably time to rethink the arrangement altogether, but then I've had a smoke and listened to it and all of a sudden it sounds like everything's perfectly EQ'd and that everything has it's own distinct space in the mix, almost like I can reach out and touch everything. I'm pretty certain that isn't good for making EQ decisions that translate to the non-stoner demographic

I feel like darts in general isn't as popular any more. The 70's and 80's were its heyday. In the UK we even had a darts themed game show (Bullseye) on which legends like Bristow and Wilson would sometimes appear. Bullseye was awesome, I've been known to watch clips on YouTube sometimes...

The concept is *state-dependent learning*.  If you learn to mix whilst high, you will only be able to get good mixes whilst high.

Wow, Dave knows a little NLP! 
 
The same concept is why some people know all the material for a test (that they learned while in a relaxed alpha state), but can't recall it when in a high anxiety (beta) state during the test.  The trick here is to learn how to relax during the test.
 
This is also why soldiers are trained under brutal conditions; so they can perform during war under those same conditions.

Eph is also Dave. 

My nickname in my band is "Also Dave", often abbreviated in text message as simply "Also".
 
This is because there is another Dave in the band and he joined before me, thus qualifying him for the title of Primary Dave. I will therefore remain Also Dave until I have him killed.

Funny that my medication for insomnia also gives you munchies.
 
And nightmares. Theres always side effects. But the unwakeable state of sleep paralysis it induces with full body muscle relaxation is incredible. Oh, and the nightmares are awfully trippy, never done recreational drugs but Im sure its the same as, if not worse than a bad acid trip. But at least your paralyzed at the same time so you dont end up hurt, but then the nightmares are often of being paralyzed while being flayed alive or hacked to death by monsters ....
 
Screw that, just smoke weed instead.
