Positive thread, keep the sarcasm at bay please.

I'd like to thank Greg Whalen for sending me his copy of Will Saul's Balance without asking so much as a postage, just because he didn't like it and figured I would. I did and still do, it's fucking brilliant.

Thanks for Sbando for making sure we always get Transitions and Essential Mixes fresh and downloadable. Back catalogue too.

Blimey that was a few years ago wasnt it? Glad you are still enjoying it!

Thanks to ETC who genuinely makes me chuckle, each one of his posts is hilarious, lord knows where he gets his analogies from!

Found out this week that the word tip originated from 'To Insure Promptness' and was paid at the start of dining.

Another amazing fact for you all next week guys!

The missus got me a ps4 last month. I'm quite impressed with it so far, but it's not quite as amazing as I was expecting. Visually the games are excellent, particularly Tomb Raider and Killzone. It's also really quick to load and turn off, and just generally navigate around.

One drawback is the battery life of the controllers - way shorter than the ps3, so having to ensure its plugged in to charge if I watch a DVD or blu ray.

Looking forward to getting The Last of Us and GTA5 on it later this year, as well as the next Uncharted.

One of my fears is having children and them somehow aspiring to be like 'White Dee'.

It was only a matter of time before she became a celebrity.

Excessive coverage this morning of the victorious England womens world cup rugby team all over the BBC, lifting the trophy in a near empty stadium

GERTCHA!

Good shout on Sterling above, but think he looks more like the sister from Coming to America (someone posted a pic of it last season I think)

I do some work for a radio station that are owed money by Gatecrasher; didnt realise it was this bad! Tried every avenue going to reclaim the money but it all fell on deaf ears until the 'liquidation' letters came out. Still amazed how you can get away with all that debt simply by ignoring everything and anything!

These payoffs do my head right in. It seems HR depts are terrified of the employment tribunal and would rather just pay the employee off than actually make a stand and fight the case. I've seen so many useless people at my place that threaten a tribunal and end up getting a settlement. Never seem to actually consider the fact that they were always on sick leave, or couldnt actually do their job etc

Looks like Haringey spent 196k fighting it before giving in and then paying out the >600k. What a racket

GERTCHA!

I seriously doubt Uncle John is too worried. He's been there, done it, had loads of T-shirts printed etc. Don't lose sleep now, these things happen. Some crowds are just a tough nut. Also, this doesn't say how it finished... might have been a mass love in at the end.

Once went to an Oakey gig in '96 and the same thing happened with the crowd... was just 'one of those' nights. I'm sure the monkey man is sweating it worrying about that night right now..... then again.... perhaps he's not.

Saw JD at Es Paradis, Ibiza in June/July 1998 and it was a bit like that video, but with less people. Think he did about 4-5 hours and started playing really early in the night - seem to remember the lights being on in the club when he started? The club was barely full, but after about 2 hours the room had really filled up and by the end he was hammering the tunes out, place was going mad. Perhaps this gig ended up like that?

I recall reading somewhere that Diggers played the original of Bullet In The Gun at Bedrock, when he meant to play the Rabbit In The Moon mix. Can any of you older Bedrockers confirm or deny this please. If so would have loved to have been there to have seen the reaction.

Don't think that is true? I was at Bedrock @ Heaven when Digweed played the RITM mix of that track, very early on in a set, really pitched down. About 3 months later it appeared on Oakey's Another World comp.

The Young Ones is probably my favourite comedy show, couldnt make any sense what so ever of it, but it was still brilliant.

Mayall was a genius, RIP

I know there are prob a few topics out there on this but when I checked they seemed a few years old?

Anyway, I've recently set up my Technics and vinyl after they had been in storage for years. Seems my mixer is on the way out (a Gemini PS646 I purchased about 15 years ago) so I'm looking for a new one.

All I'll use it for is to mix between two turntables, with a half-decent sound quality. I never got round to playing CDs and all I now use the vinyl for is a few hours mucking about with a few beers of an evening.

Been looking at stuff but there seems loads out there, for varying prices.

Any ideas for a mixer within the £200 range?

Never get tired of watching Gazza's freekick versus Arsenal. Amazing moment. The goal, the celebration and the commentary.

'That....is schoolboys own stuff!'

Back when the FA cup meant something.

Well done to Man City, thoroughly deserved. Pellegrini seems a decent bloke and thank god it wasn't Mourinho winning it!

Gutted that we couldnt see it out but the return of CL nights is a consolation. I do think we will struggle to maintain a strong league campaign with midweek European games to play.

The game today was by far the worst performance of the season as well, doesnt say a lot for Newcastle.

FFS Greg we need to get you engaged with the cream of British cinema. If you're watching a film with Danny Dyer or the ginger bloke nobody knows the name of then you can bet Tamer won't be too far away.

There's me admiring the works of Daniel Day-Lewis when all the time I've been ignoring the works of Hassan - who according to wiki was 'Faden's limo driver' in Batman Begins and doesnt seem to star in any films where his character has a surname - always a sign of a good actor!

LOL am I missing something here - who is Tamer Hassan? British Hollywood Legend?!

ETC - I would pay to read your posts mate, always bring a smile to my face!

Few of the younger lads in my Sunday football team have been to the Sugar Hut, they love the place. They think nothing of getting these £250 tables in the vain hope of snogging some blonde Essex bird. Don't think any of them could spell mortgage let alone worry about one!

Great goal from Rooney but Suarez did it vs Norwich last season and it wasn't mentioned nearly as much as the one yesterday. The way they go on about Rooney is embarrassing at times

Had the pleasure of going to one of those evening dinner nights with ex sportsmen. Claridge was the speaker. He had to finish up early as people were heckling him, talking on phones etc as he was that bloody boring and monotone. His talk was along the lines of ' so I bowled up at club x, managed to get 7 goals in 10 games there, then it was onto club y, where I did a bit better, bagging 12 in 15' etc etc.

Agreed, it's a great season so far, especially for the neutral. No coincidence that Utd are way out of it.

I would love to play against Martin Skrtel. He'd either pass the ball to you in front of an open goal, haul you down for a penalty or score you an OG.

As simon mentioned we are all over the place at the back, shambolic. Thank God we are decent going forward!

Two that spring to mind:

Steve Lawler Toronto

Anthony Pappa - Moments 2

Both sounded like it was the same bleepy loop on repeat for 70+ minutes. Shocking efforts.

Also agree on Creamer & K's Bedrock effort, utterly terrible.
