The Chinese are a scholarly, benign race who get a bad press. Their biggest crimes are an over-fondness for gambling and eating animals IMO.
I just reported ETC's post.
Reason: too quality.
Some vintage Loopy in this thread:)
Not sure who it was on this thread that recommended Iain Banks but I'm finally getting into The Wasp Factory and it's quite brilliant.
Dropped $50 on the complete collection of Raymond Carver short stories, usually finish one story in the shitter every morning. Loving it!
Huge book sale happened a couple of weeks back, got the whole collection of Y: The Last Man, very very good. And i'm really not a big fan of it's the end of the world stories (nothing will ever compare to The Road), but it's a fun read.
Been also getting into the erotic graphic novel scene - Milo Manara collections - rapey af, Alan Moore's Lost Girls - twisted af and beautiful art, Howard Chaykin's Black Kiss and Paying for It by Chester Brown which is basically about this guy who gives up on relationships and just starts hitting up hookers.
Standing in Another Man's Grave was really good but took a long time to get going.
Changed my mind about trying out the JK Rowling books after looking into them a bit more.
Need some recommendations for hols please folks.
twats betting on end of season randomness is why people with brains buy shares in bookies rather than punting.
just fyi lads.
Listened to this a couple of times now. That's really excellent.
If you ever need detailed feedback PM me for my email
really nice Glen
I'd say there was approximately about as many Seth Troxler fans on here as there are Flares fans, Flares, to answer your original question.
His first name says it all tbh; no-one called "Seth" is ever likely to have a major impact on the world of music IMO.
Careful Joey, unless you want Hannu spraying this one down with banti-freeze too
I opened this thread excitedly expecting to hear about a new drug
There is no prospect of us leaving. It's all poker lads.
We need to be IN a drastically reformed European Parliament
The first reform would be to rename it The European Parliabant
Us literary types use something called a bookmark....a number of the vintage volumes in my collection will be worth a fucking fortune, yellowed pages and musky smells ......I possess obscure sociology and psychology texts from the 1920's.... the act of turning every page giving an organic connection to the words in front of them....the true nature of what it means to be alive is being incrementally eroded by the fascism of convenience. I'm keeping it real, thanks
If you still read actual books you are irrational and/ or Finnish.
My iPad kindle app never forgets what page you were on, knows how long you'll take to finish, never gets dog-eared, and contains effectively every book ever written.
If that's not magic then I'm not sure what is.
Is that the PG Tips chimps doing an A-Ha tribute act?

I read a Kurt Kobain biography a few years ago, the guy was crazy in the coconut.
Best thing he did was kill himself.
You're a disgrace
4 goals in his last 50 apperances should assuage you from using this plank of bouyant mdf, who would be more suited to Ferrying eritreans in the mediterranean bound for blighty and furnished dwellings in forest gate.
It's not great but it's OK. Agree with Jay re melody.

What's the funniest thing he's ever said?
that he used to work at eastern bloc
Nah. The Phil Opian thing was funnier IMO.
What is your position on that now anyway Derms, out of curiosity?
Nope. I think he actually might be the real House Harkkonnen from GU. That guy was also a few french fries short of a happy meal.
I know the real House Harkkonnen from GU IRL. Petra's met him too, in Paradiso Amsterdam.
He's got a quality wife, a couple of lovely kids and a massive house on acres of land. He runs a proper business and is the sort of guy who takes his staff on 48 hour overseas benders then cooks brunch for everyone when they emerge from their comas.
Basically the complete polar opposite of the sad cunt that hacked his and every other retired account.
