In general I think the fantasy genre is shit. 

However. I do enjoy various games and also have a keen interest in cod-medieval furniture (specifically thrones). I'm a big fan of this television program as it combines the two nicely.  smile smile smile smile

The only thing that gets on my tits about this show is the fact that horses are used like cars.  Why is the evil wizard that lives in the floating castle constantly looking for his fucking keys? sad sad sad sad

If this clip is for real then fair play to Big Fella here. Chronic diarrhoea is now bang on trend/bang on message @ #Clubland.  Not that any of you jaded old cunts would know about it of course. 

Ricardo Villalobos often holds a microphone up against his harris as he squirts out the brown during his more "flamboyant" sets in Berghain, whilst Ivan Smagghe now includes Buscopan tablets on his rider.

Just driven passed a pair of purple velvet strides draped over the railings in front of McDonald's in Shoreditch. 

A fitting tribute to the man, i'm sure you'll all agree.

Listening to one of his songs right now, the one that goes "Whooo Hooo hooo whoo-hoo". I'm literally crying tears of purple rain. 

The verse where he rhymes the words "Delores" with "brontosaurus" just set me off again.

Agreed. Warp Films seem to have a real knack for making films that stay with you.

I found Daniel Henshall's character "Jon" particularly unsettling.

Splendid.

LOL.

Rhouses.  Please rate the record below out of 5.  Please be honest in your appraisal:

Thanks for that Bill Brewster link fella.   Good listen that was.   Interesting that "cheekypaul" from the GU crew was involved

On the other hand that Guardian abortion is about par for a Sasha interview.  The constant factor in all of this poor bloke's interviews seems to be a glorified past that can never be recreated.  Respect to Brewster for scratching below.

As for the album itself.  I got round to listening to it tonight. At the risk of sounding like a kiss-my-girlfriend mong I reckon the first 2 thirds of this album are exceptional.  It's got a deftness of touch missing from anything post Airdrawndagger.  This reminds me of the melancholic sound that drew us all in.

For example the track that starts at 42:00 seems reminiscent of those incidental loopy techno records he used to drop as "bridges" during his early sets at fabric . The type of hypnotic stuff you get completely lost in when high on drugs,  all while having your testis groped by some vested Spanish tourist in room 1. 

Mans still got an ear for a tune, even without Mr May.  Bring on his next record in 2026

4/5 IMO.

Nice one.  Might dust off the old white whistle n' horn for this.

lol @ mono. Prog poetry.

There was a young DJ from Wales,
Whose career was a series of fails,
He called on his mate,
And agreed on a date,
To impress a bunch of 40-something males.

LOL

That's beautiful. It really is. Did you write some poetry about it at all?

Here's a quick one i wrote whilst queuing for a piss:

There was an old DJ with a beard
Who said, "it’s just how I feared!
Two owls and a hen
Four larks and a wren
Have all built their nests in my [progressive house] beard.

Great stuff from Bodzin.  Surely the man of the moment.  Toying with the idea of making the effor t see him at fabers this sunday

I was woken up by this band a few years back while living in an 8 person house share, when the thick black rimmed "media spectacled" tosspot FAT FUCKING SLAG downstairs decided to bang an albums worth out at 4am, on a fucking school night.  God I love my own house.

Anyways turns out this is a cracking tune.  The chorus is properly "rousing"

Always had mixed opinions on Weatherall.  He reminds me a bit of Sue Perkins - a tiresome militant lezbo who's somewhat amusing nevertheless .

I’ve heard him successfully bang it out, but i’ve also witnessed him practically clear dance floors.  At the moment he seems to be going through some post modern ironic HIV positive victorian weightlifter phase?

His experimentation and self reinvention seem to be both his blessing and achilles' heel, but it’s arguably all part of the charm. One thing for sure is that he inhabits that ever decreeing clique of DJ’s who successfully managed to retain their musical integrity during that  “superstar DJ” bollocks thing in the nineties, so fair play.

Sorry to piss on your chips fella but there is no fucking way we will vote to leave the EU. Odds on to stay in according to the people who are good at predicting these outcomes, the bookies. 

The balance of competences between Brussels and the government is broadly sensible.  We already have useful opt-outs IE not in the euro or the Schengen passport-free travel zone, and we have our “special” budget rebate.  A couple of years back we also opted out of a load of justice and home-affairs policies.

If we where to fuck off and wanted to keep full access to the EU’s single market, we would have to obey most of its rules anyway (and pay into its budget) without having a say in them.  I reckon most pragmatists, even those of us who think Brussels is clearly bent/disordered, will come out for continuing membership, regardless of all the dog whistle shit (herp-derp immigration init) in the tabloids.

I'd say if he had no mortgage he'd get by just fine on €27k in Spain. Cost of living is nothing compared to the UK. You can go out for a menu of the day and eat a 3 course lunch with bread and wine for about €6/€7.


lol. Not everybody in Spain lives in Benidorm, Dutchy.


Not talking about Benidorm. The wife's mum lives out in Spain in Catalonia and I go out there regularly. If you go to the places that the locals all go to you can live out in Spain very well on not very much money. A menu del dia is about €8 /€10 in some of the more expensive places and a bottle of Estrella will only set you back €0.85.

FFS. What in the name of Bernard Cribbins is a "Menu del dia"? Everyone knows Spanish food is far too garlicky. 

What kind of price are we looking at for egg and chips here?

I believe these are traded on "NIGex" the Nigerian stock market.  You'll need a Weston Union account and a rather large pair of balls in order to invest.
