Re: The New Ska Thread

Hello, Thanks for this. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones' new album probably won't offer much in terms of surprises but it will in all likelihood offer quality. The bands in the article are good. Another source for ska that has been pretty active is Jump Up Records ( http://www.jumpuprecords.com/ ). Visi...

Re: The David Bowie is God Thread

I remember a lot of people at the time badmouthing the album as a failed attempt at drum & bass, but it has held up a lot stronger than many of the contemporaries. I’d argue it’s as underrated as a 90s Bowie release as Lodger was as a 70s one. Hello, Who under-rates Lodger? Not a sensible being. Th...

Re: Association Football Thread

Hello, The EPL has some very exciting games but the level of play in the Bundesliga is much higher. Watching Bayern-Dortmund today and seeing how players connect quick passes in tight spaces (some brilliant touches) is really impressive. Perhaps some EPL games are more exciting but damn, the German ...

Re: Middle age health thread for fatties

I went to get my annual mammogram today, and this is the first year they haven't asked if I could possibly be pregnant. I mean, I get it. I'm 49. But couldn't you have just taken two seconds and asked, and then I could respond with a wink "oh ho, that ship sailed LONG ago." And that would have made...

Hello,

Changing location is different from changing your philosophy (said the old man who lives in the suburbs of North Carolina).

Re: The Mighty Musical Observations Thread

Your first mistake was assuming we have mods. Inder's getting great training here if he ever decides to become a slumlord. On the other hand, I can't remember when I last paid my rent, so maybe not. We’re more like the world’s shittiest, but largely stable commune. I think it’s because we really do...

Re: The David Bowie is God Thread

Correct . The songs are great and can definitely stand on their own, but there's a bit of a double bonus for me as a drum & bass fan. The whole thing has a great texture and mood. I remember a lot of people at the time badmouthing the album as a failed attempt at drum & bass, but it has held up a l...

Friends, Earthling is a great album. I'll not hear anything against it. Correct .

This could go on like five threads, but this one seems most apt.
