What's on your mind?
scorpiodog: There are 4 fabulous examples of wood and wire in the classifieds at the moment and I'm only slightly tempted. Does GAS disappear with extreme age? Apr 28, 2022 11:16:02 GMT
martinrowe: I can't remember Apr 29, 2022 6:18:01 GMT
minorkey: Getting some page errors on here today

Onechordtrick: It’s :guinness: time :) sitting in the bar at Dublin airport May 19, 2022 16:52:51 GMT
ocarolan: Have one for me! :guinness: May 20, 2022 10:19:51 GMT
otis1960: Can someone please tell Sir Rod Stewart that his voice has gone, and it is time he devoted all of his energies to his (genuinely impressive) train set? Jun 5, 2022 0:16:26 GMT
robmc: ...and his hair Jun 6, 2022 18:55:06 GMT
scorpiodog: All my heroes are getting old or dying now. Sir Rod's getting old too. Jun 7, 2022 12:05:42 GMT
curmudgeon: Tell me ONE reason why anyone should go to bed sober on a Friday night! ..... On second thoughts, make it a double! Jun 11, 2022 19:39:11 GMT
curmudgeon: Rupert our cat is unwell. Thank goodness we have carpets and furniture colour matched to cat sick! Jun 15, 2022 15:34:15 GMT
scorpiodog: Good planning there . Jun 15, 2022 15:36:45 GMT
ocarolan: I have a friend who calls mushroom vol-au-vents "cat sick buns". Jun 16, 2022 21:09:44 GMT
walkingdecay: Hope Rupert gets better soon, curmudgeon. Jun 28, 2022 17:46:30 GMT
walkingdecay: I just read that 13th C Bishop (later Saint) Hugh of Lincoln was so keen to collect holy relics that on a visit to Normandy he took two bites from the arm of what was supposed to be Mary Magdalene's body. He 'gnawed it as if he were a dog,' we're told. Jun 28, 2022 17:54:47 GMT
walkingdecay: Oh, and just as a matter of interest, brides aren't 'walked down the aisle.' The middle of a church is the nave, the aisles are on either side. Jun 28, 2022 17:57:35 GMT *
walkingdecay: I got a copy of Dave Davies' original autobiography in advance of the release of his new one and found myself so appalled by his ego and careless disregard for others that I cancelled the pre-order. Feet of ordure. Jun 30, 2022 7:49:47 GMT
walkingdecay: Thanks to a rave review on The Guardian this morning I just checked out Ghost Story by Fern Maddie on Spotify. Two things: firstly, there's an affectingly elemental, almost mystical air to it, reminding me of the first time I heard Emily Portman... Jul 1, 2022 7:52:37 GMT
walkingdecay: ...secondly, The Guardian overturned precedents by getting a music review right. They usually try to ride trends and recommend the stuff that sounds awful because if it's hard on the ears it must be cutting edge. Jul 1, 2022 7:54:02 GMT *
scorpiodog: Nice recommendation, Pete. I just listened to her version of "Hares On The Mountain" on YouTube. Really excellent. www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdX19cSFkuQ Jul 1, 2022 12:21:05 GMT
walkingdecay: Nice. The album is let down by a couple of overwhelming instances of heavy bass, but elsewhere there's a rapidly developing new voice. Jul 1, 2022 18:05:36 GMT
