RE: Inside No 9 (Psychoville writers' new show)

Second episode was better (although predicted the end).  They could easily (and probably were!...) have been talking about Game of Thrones.

Oh there were a few things in it I know I wouldn't have let 'other' 'acts' get away with I think.
There were certainly a few funny bits in it (inc. when he was sitting on the guy and said he was trying to make him come to(o)..) and I'm sure I'd pick up some more double entendres on a second viewing - but usually for me the second viewing is to see just how many clues were there all along - but don't thing that's the 'point' of this one?
There was a time when they broke the fourth wall and they said something like 'Stop Fleabagging' and said she wasn't he was 'Miranda'ing' - ish.
The skipping a page of the script parts made it like a play yet..?...

Erm, wtf....
Gotta be honest, it was like a euphemism-laden panto where I was laughing a bit and thinking where is this going, what's the twist... and then it kind of finished and he had a mate.
As with other episodes, maybe something will be revealed on a second watch but the whole 'talk to camera' thing etc., I'm not sure I'm in a hurry tbh.
Recently re-watched a couple of series too.

RE: Nobody

Thought this was great tbh and had been looking forward to it for a while.
Definitely disengage brain and enjoy but certainly enjoyed it more than the likes of John Wick (certainly the latter ones).
Bob Odenkirk was just great in it and yes, the action scenes were very well done indeed..
Regarding watching it, not sure it's available for free anywhere and is a rental even via Prime US with a VPN.

"Currently playing Control on PC"
Finished Control on PS5 a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it.
Some really great parts and a few frustrating ones too (thinking respawn points after a death having to retrace sometimes).
It was free too.
admars, I don't think God of War for PS4 has been a PSN+ monthly game - but it is availble for free in the included games to get with PS5.  Easily one of the best PS4 games and a total change from the previous ones - especially Kratos.

RE: [VIDEO] Breakaway super league...

Hopefully normality can resume soon and we can all move on.
I found some of the comments hilarious from some owners - Moshiri's especially had so much irony.
He mentioned it was just a money game and not about football anymore... - coming from the guy who's spent more than only a couple of clubs over the last 4 or 5 years or so - all fruitlessly too.
You should 100% need to qualify for and deserve to qualify for these tournaments and not be there by default.  He said that too and then added his belief that the clubs involved should be deducted points.  Wonder what the outcome of that would have been?  He needs to be really careful about his wish for points deductions for poaching managers too.  Hmm.
I really feel the other clubs owe a huge debt of gratitude to the fans of the clubs involved for being so vociferous in their opposal to the disgusting behaviour demonstrated by their clubs' and their owners.  Without it the proposals would certainly have gone through.
I think the biggest one for me is the hypocracy too.  I'd totally bet that if the other owners were calling up Moshiri (and others!) and asking if he wanted to play the best clubs in the world every season, guaranteed, and then saw the obscene amounts of money at stake, his 'f***, yeah!' response would have taken milliseconds.  It's very easy to condemn and say you wouldn't do something if you were never going to be asked in the first place though..

The amount of verbal diarrhea the last couple of days honestly made me feel you were on something Bandi. I don't know if it was really trolling (and think it much more so that than 'mischievous banter') but I totally see how close Rob must have got to pressing that button.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

I think what it really is is that the deal was negotiated so quickly and late (really should have stood back and said with the pandemic and everything else in the world, let's pause and get that resolved..) that for most, the 'deal' was little better than a no deal Brexit, and for many a damn sight worse.

I'd say In Absentia.
It opens with Blackest Eyes from previous post but has so many great tracks, lyrics and harmonies. Heavy in parts and ends with the beautiful Collapse the Light Into Earth...

[VIDEO] RE:What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

If you're looking for any more of his more 'accessible' things, I could recommend these:...
From Porcupine Tree:
A heavier, rockier track about, erm, a Serial Killer..
Blackest Eyes..



A couple of beautiful, more melancholic tracks, both of which I adore.
Sentimental..


Lazarus..


Permanating, a track from his last solo album that quite split the fanbase... Basically he wanted to write a pop song.  The version from his last live 'DVD' pretty much repeats this video (that I hadn't actually seen until just now )


Pariah, a track that I know has been linked to here in the past (from Andy C).. Incredible guest vocal - and the end...


There was an article a few years back that he was something like the most successful musician you've never heard of and it's probably not far off.  He's even bigger now, in huge demand especially to remaster or produce - yet still hardly anyone's heard of him..

I know why it was Elton and how deliberate it was. I just don't actually like that part of the song and skip past it now. A few in there (Super deluxe boxsets etc.) Steven is quite guilty of himself by his own admission.
