4 years into marriage, now with 2 kids. 

Managed one festival this year as a working volunteer, and no clubbing (yet).

Make of that what you will.

Billed as a "Resistance" night, interestingly a Bugged Out night has also been pencilled in at Motion Bristol.  I'm still gonna hold out for an event at Printworks, which also has a Bugged Out thing going on...?

My wife has her catholic (irish) mother and CofE (english) father who met in the army in the 80s. The marriage probably ruffled quite a few feathers in the irish contingent of the family and I've not been privy to that particular drunken history lesson (yet).

Me? Technically catholic parents but I was not baptized and never went to church as a young'un.

We were married in a CofE church 4.5 years ago, and have not been back in a church since other than for weddings, baptisms and funerals.

Happy to be branded a non-believer.

Dunno, kinda leaves it open for another series but also could definitely be an end.

Episode 17 was GREAT! Hammy fight scene with some of the old cast hanging around, heroic stuff with good vs evil etc. And if that had been the end, I would have been ok with that.

Episode 18 is what Lynch does best, fucks with our expectations.  It was full of weird suspense and drawn our sections that give us time to think/ponder.  The horror element comes from what our mind envisages rather than what is explicitly shown on screen (See Laura Palmer sat in the car with Dale, wondering if they are being followed. Nope, its just her worrying about being followed when nothing else is happening).

There is a fuck-ton of stuff to chew over from this series if you can be bothered, and personally I have loved it all and am very glad he got to make the show he wanted.

Definitely won't have won him many new fans and possibly lost him some old ones, but the daft old sod will (hopefully) pick up some awards and as a lasting legacy for TP fans we can't have asked for much more.

Good news.

The way W10 was deployed, coupled with compatibility issues I had, means that I ended up installing Ubuntu (Plasma) on my home computer, and recently also tried out Gnome which seems pretty stable and user friendly too.

I can't understand why they limited this series to only 7 episodes when they have clearly already covered more ground in 6 episodes than they used to with 10.

Fucking stupid how they can now travel the length of the continent during an ad break, yet Tyrian took a while series to do it when he joined the black watch.

But for those who got in, was it any cop?

Or just shit and expensive.

The world was flipped on its head when you got "instant" loading C64 cartridges.

Desert Strike, Jungle Strike and Urban Strike.  Spent an age playing those game.

Sorry to derail this football thread, but the festival did indeed look decent.

I went to both the Glade Festival's that were held on the same site and its a boss venue with natural amphitheatre's, woodland, sculptures in the grounds of the old house etc.

Definitely on the list for next year if it gets the green light (apparently there were some noise complaints they have to deal with first)

I wish I had photoshop skills.  The map needs a skull & crossbones next to a treasure island or something.

And he raped her on their interbred son's coffin, so that's one ticked off the bucket list I suspect.
