  • skel said: ..the clear narrative message I heard was, it's better to be in than out. And if that relates at a country level, then surely also at an individual one too. Again this seems like a fallacy. There are many reasons to believe we …
  • Jimster said: It was kind of cool that I could live, for as long as I wanted, in any of the member states and no-one could say JACK about it. Not Romanian gypsy colonies, natch. The nice bits of EU. I've never been but I hear Romania is p…
  • I'm pretty sure the internal politics of our country don't really enter into the illegals in Calais' decision much at all. You can't go around the world selling democracy and the free market and then act surprised when people in poor countries (in a…
  • The dudes in the Calais are illegal immigrants and not eligible for mainstream welfare benefits, even if they managed to claim asylum they still don't qualify. An entirely different ball game to Eastern Euroman. Let's not drink all that Daily Mail c…
  • my new theme tune
  • The presenters are indeed grating but if you'd used the red button then you wouldn't have had to sit through any of it. I haven't watched the main channel feed unless something was happening. It's no easy feat covering as much of the games as the BB…
  • Previously I never really payed any attention to the Olympics. But for some reason, probably the great opening ceremony, it finally connected in 2012. So this is only the second games I've even bothered watching.  I watched some of the British fema…
  • On an entirely unrelated note Skel you may find this interesting https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/aug/18/giuda-bovver-rock-interview
  • "More than a third of British medal winners in the 2012 London Olympics were from private schools, which educate 7% of the school population, a study by the Sutton Trust shows." Being able to pursue a life in sport, just like the arts, is more and …

  • Ok. Ridiculous TV pitches. What ya got? Airing winter 2017 on Sky One a twist on the Jack The Ripper tale, where dude is literally Hitler. No seriously. He's time traveling Adolf, hunted by time travelling Allied war heroes. We've taken that old mo…
  • The story in show itself makes a pretty big deal about how being true and authentic has always been important, kinda ironic really. It's not like it needs to be 100%, but the story is strong enough told straight, any additional embellishment is real…
  • Once I saw it was Baz Luhrmann in charge of this I pretty much gave up any hope of historical accuracy. He's making Moulin Rouge the hip hop years. It's very odd tonally, it doesn't fit with what is very close historic events or the genre it's repr…
  • I could be misremembering it cause I still can't find any mention of it online. It could well be Tsutomu Ōhashi reworked the soundtrack for the one of the anniversary Blurays. It would make more sense for them to have had to take audio channels out …
  • mattB said: Symphonic Suite Akira... awesome @Okem  Have you heard the rereleased version with all the tracks they had to take out when they transferred it from movie surround sound mix to the album version? I can't find word of it online…

  • I don't think the Japanese did Libraries did they? They would use Western ones occasionally but I don't think there was a domestic production system like they had in Europe. It's a shame cause they would undoubtedly be some killer stuff, especially …
  • Probably not what you're after as it's not fonky but it's still one of my favourite 80s OSTs, Japanese or otherwise.
  • I always doubted his commitment to Sparkle Motion. 
  • Seems like Grade A stoner tv. putting something like that together would be a good gig to have
  • The old Brownswood board? 
  • I watched that documentary about the staging of the Olympics opening ceremony the other day. Still amazed at what they managed to put together and seeing the work that went into it all was fascinating. Seeing all the volunteers practicing in a car p…
  • skel said: I was going to do one of these, but you've taken most of the Brexit Bingo points expertly there. Only thing missing is selfish old people/think of the children's future angle. And perhaps all the tech entrepreneurs will move to Ber…
  • More irrelevant meanderings 
  • I thought Mr Robot was great till it all went full Fight Club. The whole fictional mental health condition just seemed unnecessary, that and the teenage political grandstanding kinda ruined what was otherwise a great show. Why couldn't he just have …
