Nah mate, not interested in the phony balonies, awful things. Real deals all the way.

Are you all on crack? This idea that 'the NHS is fucked beyond repair' and has to be privatised is a proper nonsense. Have you all been slurping down the Tory spunk flavoured Kool-Aid? If you get a government in that wants to fix it, and prioritises it, it'll be fine. End of. Get some cunts in who want to under fund it and manage it badly as an excuse to gift it to their mates... guess fucking what!

Yes Im a Tory voter because I work hard and dont want it to finance people sitting on their arse.

Jules there, summing up exactly what is wrong with this country, all reading the Mail and being outraged / terrified that someone down the road might be getting something for nothing... oh the horror!

What an awful, narrow minded cunt.

Where are we getting the information that Labour are fucked under Corbyn?

Just about every opinion poll I have read recently.

From what I can see, the party is divided under his leadership and he is weak as a leader and as a statesman. At least Trump exuded some sort of authority. Corbyn seems like a supply teacher at school whose classes you knew you could fuck around in as he couldn't do fuck all about it.

Best thing for the Labour party is for them to lose terribly and then appoint a new, leader with a bit more energy and appeal to the swing voters. Not sure who it could be though as the party is in disarray as far as I can see.

I hate the tories but as it stands I can't see a viable alternative to them. I have no confidence in Corbyn and wouldn't trust the Lib Dems with anything after the boomerangs Clegg performed when they got in with the Cameron.

Correct Roberto.

In other recollections of the evening, what the fuck was going on with total strangers rubbing my baldy head like I was some sort of small friendly child, and double what the fuck was going on with the Burmese bloke standing on peoples feet and Facebook Live-ing their reaction?

Boss night.

Liked the club, good vibe, good crowd, sound wasn't bad, drank lots of gin.

Was a bit gutted John didn't bang it out a bit harder, but top stuff all the same.

Drive home nearly killed me.

Rage Against The Machine @ Manchester Ritz 1993. Angst in every way. Blew my mind. The end.

Great minds Spinner!

Rage Against the Machine, Liverpool, 93. My first gig and still one of the best.

AC/DC, Wembly 2015. Just fuckin boss, end of.

Green Day, Boardwalk Manchester, 94. Still spewing that I missed them at Wigan Cricket Club in 92, but this just about made up for it.

Memorable mentions to the Chems at the Apollo in Manch 97, Underworld at Glasto last year, Pantera at Donnington 94, The Pharcyde at Manch Ritz late 90s, and fuck loads that I've forgotten.

I don't know how Luc Besson does it, but somehow all the effects work in his films look like they where done by the team at Blue Peter, utilising there standard fare of loo rolls and sticky back plastic.

I'll not complain too much, as his films are, for the most part, way above the usual Hollywood fodder.

One would assume he read all the Mobius stuff when he was a kid???

Fair play, I reckon Guttenburg did some goosing in his time.

Truck loads of Dermo's ones on eBay.

If you can't steal those, B&Q do a version, the Curver Heavy Duty Crates, very similar, not cheap, but the bonus is the handles: they've got big round sturdy bastards on them, so when you try to pick up a full crate of records they don't cut into your hand like cheese wire!

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41wAuwA%2BXXL.jpg

I don't think the lids on them are as sturdy as some, possibly not as industrial as Dermo's ones, but the handles are a winner for when you come to move them. Just remember to check the dimensions, some of the smaller ones 'nearly, but not quite' take records etc.

By far the nicest, best kept, course I've played, but they should all be tearing it apart, it's far from the toughest course. The fairways are miles wide, the rough is very kind and the greens are massive. My local muni is a far harder round.

What channels / streams do I need to be looking at for full coverage? NBC?

Kid's film?  You're shitting me?!  Way too much allegorical themes and violence to be for kids.

Okay, maybe not kids film, but it didn't take it's self too seriously, a bit like Robocop / Predator etc. The tone of Alien (certainly the first one) is a bit more serious, less fantastical. No? the dialogue doesn't let your man Sharlto Copley put in a John Hurt / Ian Holm style performance.

Darkly humorous with special emphasis on apartheid and race relations in general.  Sharleton's transformation from bumbling, xenophobic corporate puppet to champion of prawns was nothing short of brilliant.  Reflective, pensive, and with a maturing attribute of empathy, he played the character brilliantly.  A physical, emotional, and  psychological gauntlet that was exquisitely directed and edited.  Innovative, clever, and believable -  District 9 is one of the best sci-fi movies of the past 10 years.   It's in my top 10 sci-fi movies of all time.

At this point Ghosty, we're going to have to agree to disagree.

Not convinced, District 9 was a bit of a kids film, not sure he could pull off a proper Alien film.

Neil Blomkampf was supposed to do a sequel to Aliens - ignoring Alien 3 and Resurrection completely.  Michael Bein and Sigourney were in board, but with the success of Prometheus, 20th Century Fox didn't want to step on Scott's toes.

has the Blomkampf film been shelved completely then?

..just wouldn't seem right cutting out the Alien 3 storyline. These "ideas" are just as bad as cheesey remakes. Glad 20th century fox canned the idea. Hicks & Newt died, let's just leave it at that.

Yeah, well swerved imo.
