At least he and his wife are still in one piece, that but that kinda experience must be fucking horrible.

Don't know why, but I woke up with the piano riff from this stuck in my head this morning...

Stayed in last night. Bugged out at the Old Queen's Head today. We've got tickets for Dixon as well, but might give that a swerve...

I saw a review that mentioned that,  and likened it to the development of the iPhone.  Original iPhone was great at the time,  but iPhone 6 beats it hands down.  Same basic premise though -  just an evolution of design and technology.  The original premise of the death star was sound - so they've just evolved it in the intermittent thirty years...

That said,  it's failed miserably twice.  Maybe they thought third time's a charm....

Thought it was great. Didn't try 'too' hard, and had some proper funny moments...

Have read a few reviews saying there were too many links back to New Hope. There obviously were some, but I actually thought they helped the narrative rather than detracted from it.

I can't believe you're both so wrong on this one...

Rumours is an astoundingly good album.

Prince would be awesome. Adele - meh.

Would LOVE to see Fleetwood Mac at Glastonbury, but doesn't sound like next year is the year...

Tonight - nowt.
Tomorrow - birthday type lunch for me and Mrs with the family, followed by beers and music for Vicky Pickles' birthday.
Sunday - as little as possible.

Love The Departed. Did you fly like it was 1985 and not have other film options? Entourage?

Options a bit thin on the ground to be honest. And was utterly knackered, and wanted something easy to watch. And quite enjoyed the TV series. And and and....

Long flight yesterday, so...

Southpaw - tosh. Updated Rocky for the 21st century with an angrier (and worse) soundtrack. 4/10.

Entourage - enjoyable tosh. Haterz gonna hate (etc), but was a pleasant enough way to pass 90 minutes. Just felt like an extended episode of the TV show... 6/10.

The Departed - excellent. Cracking cast, well written and directed etc etc. 8.5/10.

Watched 'It Follows' over the weekend...poor mans 'Fallen' 5/10

Also watched. Thought it was dire.

2/10.

Desire?

Belter...

Dazed and Confused. Haven't watched this in about fifteen years. Great trip down memory lane... 8/10.
