The Imitation Game

I went to see this having read, some years ago, the HUGE biography it is based on and therefore knowing the Alan Turing story full well - was just curious to see how it was treated.

I think they made a decent fist of it - Cumberbatch is good - decent pace to it and I liked the way it continually wove three periods of Turing's life in and out of the visual mix - ultimately though because it's a true, tragic, story I found it a slightly depressing experience - Alan Turing was a colossal fucking hero and should be celebrated along with England's greatest ever individuals but 'we' effectively sentenced him to death and kept his achievements secret for as long as was just about legally allowed and I still find that utterly unconscionable.

It's not a 'GREAT' film but it's not bad if you didn't know his story, and it's fucking important that this has been made so future generations can at least acknowledge the fella.

8/10

It's a decent story Smashy but sporting gold?

Not for me.

You're absolutely right smalls - it was a bit shit - I knew I should've worked some fictitious broccoli in there somehow...

But, on the plus side, that is absolutely the only golfing anecdote you'll ever catch me posting so happy days for the muscular boys as far as that is concerned.

recent edit but the original was what, '88/89?

That's a name?!

How would one pronounce that?

Terry Farley's curated a couple of decent multi-cd compilations recently - 'Acid Rain' and 'Acid Thunder' - thick end of 120 tracks from the early days - for the most part the sound quality is decent.  If you've not got any old stuff, or you want it in digital format, these are pretty much all you'd need.

All the golf naysayers are simply wrong. No need to harsh on you - but you are wrong.

Best round of golf I ever had was a birthday four-ball many years ago - out on the lash the night before followed by a 10am tee time - acid all round on the first tee and whiskey all the way round. Long story short we rolled one golf buggy and were apprehended from taking to the main road on the other. Barred from the 19th and had to adjourn to a pub. Often collectively recalled and discussed,  I've still got no idea how many holes I played let alone shots taken - although the rolled buggy was just off the 18th green (hit a tree) so maybe we got all the way round.

*edit*
'Highlight' of the round seems to have been when my mate chipped in from 20 yards or so off the green and none of us could find his ball when we eventually got round to putting - he assumed he'd run through and went to look for it, couldn't find it, dropped a spare and pitched back...

That, my muscular friends, is sporting fucking gold...

Lot of folks dismissed this as cheese but I fucking loved this - had no idea at all that it was St Etienne until recently - thought it was earlier than '91 but the video is probably right...

Nah, not even close IMO.  If Lewis retains it next year then fair enough, but Rory picking up two majors and the World Golf Championship all back-to-back, world number 1, race to Dubai winner / European number 1 is miles ahead.

Personally I'd give it to McIlroy over Hamilton because McIlroy wasn't using equipment that was far superior to everyone else.

FIFA starting to lose major global sponsors - if anything is going to affect the status quo it'll be that - Sony going apparently, Emirates considering it - beginning of the end for Blatter?

<note to self> beatport top 10 for kev big_smile

LOL

Although that has 'inspired' me to just sit and listen to the Beatport Top 10 - not sure I've ever done that before.

It's really not my thing - I'm not generally one to write off any form of music as 'shit' but some of that is getting mighty close - there was only one tune in it that I half liked and I was fucking amazed that it's a tune that smashjnr. has been playing in the car for a while - can't believe it is not only in the Beatport Top Ten but it's a fucking David Guetta tune - it couldn't be a more blatant out and out pop song if it tried to be - I am clearly, massively, out of touch...

*edit*
And Beatport can doubly fuck off for classifying the Guetta pop song as 'Deep House' - seriously, that's not even fucking funny

Looking at the list I am thinking about tracks for this already.

What's 80's poptastic edits do I have should I get Millsy, what 'random abstract' tracks have I got if I get Zackster, do I have enough time to prepare a tracklist long enough if I get Jay?

#bedrockboardfestivemixproblems

Hehehe...

I'm thinking of going the other way - get Millsy and try and put together two hours of minimal percussion, Zackster might get Abba remixes and Loopy would get the opening bars of something or other looped for 60 seconds and that's it...
