  • Yeah, the chest thumping anti England schtick was a bit of a bitter pill to swallow. Having said that, the whole shady business of football in Croatia and dodgy dealings means I'm not surprised they're trying to focus people's attention elsewhere. …
  • On the plus side, spent all of half time on my mobile trying to work out the most efficient route for getting into London for Saturday and being back at work for Monday morning. I can't deny that there's a part of me that feels grateful that I no lo…
  • Yep! I haven't been that much into Sob x RBE's actual releases but the stuff (particularly from DaBoii) on their youtube channel is great.
  • Yeah as soon as Kane hit the post the night had all the markings of another "what if". In that respect I'm thankful that Croatia actually had the better chances and, on balance, deserved to go through. I don't think I could handle another 20 years …
  • Yep, Belgium lacked any cutting edge. Am surprised that, with all those attacking options, their only plan seemed to be to cross the ball for that muppet Fellaini to contest in the box. The frantic finale was a bit of a damp squib as they seemed to…
  • Jimster said: You are looking safe in Germany.  Hmm, yeah not so sure about that sadly. Our currency is one more hiccup from going bellyup - it's only the concerted efforts of other non-Euro countries to fuck up worse that is keeping us…
  • Just belatedly discovered Idles and this ticks a lot of my desires to finally hear some new bass driven postpunk music....
  • So, are there any actual Brits on here who still live in the UK (J*m) and can breakdown what is happening to Maybot and all that right now? I took my eyes off the UK news for a few days and it appears it's all gone Banglash. Just seen that, after t…
  • Duderonomy said: One of the things I've slowly come to appreciate about the way England is playing is the headers; for years we've had journalists and analysts saying that cross it into the box for a header was old-fashioned and football had …
  • For anyone remotely interested in grime. Or who thought they no longer were. This album is the best thing I've heard in this "genre" since Mr Mitch's Parallel Memories. .
  • Well I guess they may as well stop taking bets at the bookies now. Locked in my friends.  Am personally really enjoying the appreciation of Southgate in the international press. Realise this will be short lived but is nice while it lasts. And, to t…
  • Jimster said: Junior said: No idea who the favourites are now. I would say probably 10 of the last 16 teams could win this. [very small text] It's coming home... [/vst] A meagre 52 years of hurt....never stopped us dreaming [tiny …
  • Yeah I can't think of another world cup where it really felt quite so much like any team could win any game. Just look at Germany's group - South Korea beat Germany who beat Sweden who beat Mexico who beat South Korea etc. It's a really exciting a…
  • Junior said:That's two days in a row where the group favourites have dabbled with disaster but still gone through. Despite all the drama, there have actually been no big teams going out yet. Not trying to curse today or anything. LOL.   
  • Duderonomy said: Junior said: Goes without saying that England are going to win it now. It's coming home boys. Goes without saying that this will happen since I’m not living there anymore.Fuck it, if we make the final I’m booking …
  • Yeah that Jay Rock is good. Only heard it the once through and definitely need to give it more time. Genuinely can't muster up the drive to even play through all this Kanye stuff once. Saturation to the point of not giving a shit.
  • Last night was fantastic, classic final group game drama. The only shame was neither Spain or Portugal actually went out. Tonight should hopefully be quite juicy as well. The general mood in Germany seems to remain meh, teh crafty Deutsch spotted …
  • ketan said: i'm going through old things in my parents' basement and found this alternate playlist for wu-tang forever scrawled on the back of an envelope.  i remember my last thots on this album were post-uni, when i was wrapping my general …
  • Duderonomy said: 3 Billboards - best film I’ve watched so far this year. Has anybody watched The Killing Of A Sacred Deer? It’s by the same dude who made Teh Lobster, which was an absolute mind-fuck, so I’ve avoided this new one. Yeah I …
  • Duderonomy said: RE: Liverpool, one bit of newspaper gossip that got my attention is that Klopp's assistant Zeljko Buvac - apparently "the brains" of the operation - left Liverpool amid rumours he's been offered the Arsenal job. Firstly, woul…
  • The new DJ Koze  album that came out Friday will no doubt be soundtracking a fair bit of the summer. It's not breaking new ground but is perfect sunny day music. If you like his stuff I can't recommend it highly enough.
  • Oh shit I had totally forgotten about J Rawls, file this under excellent Mobb Deep inspired loops. That Husalah interview is amazing. As is the album artwork. I'm a fan and been meaning to check it out - just feels like a lot of music to tackle.
  • Yeah it did feel a bit like that. On the plus side, I think it's been a long time since there's been such an overwhelmingly entertaining Champions League, Hoping it bodes well for the world cup and we won't be witnessing any more games like the It…
  • I may have been slightly over confident on my analysis of Liverpool walking the final. I'm beginning to fear it may be another dispiriting grind to a victory by Real. 
  • Actually the Bandcamp artist/fan feed is probably my number one source these days, lots of good stuff pops up there.  I also still keep an eye on Pitchfork, TinyMixTapes and Resident Adviser - as much for what is becoming available as the reviews t…
  • No not yet, I've basically read nothing in depth on it apart from a few spoiler reviews I'd been saving until after watching so as not to ruin the surprises. Normally I'm all over critical analyses of films that left an impression on me but I've fo…
  • Looking forward to seeing The Square.  Finally watched mother! I don't know, I really don't know. I'm generally not the biggest fan of Aronofsky at all but this was truly something else. I don't know how much of it was intentionally funny but the …
  • Or PSG. Yeah it would also be really interesting to see what Klopp can do with a team that doesn't get deconstructed by bigger teams after one successful season. Some of his Dortmund teams were showing incredible promise before they got Bayern'd. …
