Re: Flex's Ultimate 25 Days of Christmas (Songs) World Cup: NOMINATIONS AND QUALIFIERS

Nothing left field from me, as a committed traditionalist I'll nominate what stand out for me as two of the all time xmas greats that will stand the test of time for aeons to come. 1. The Drifters - White Christmas 2. In the bleak midwinter - so many fine versions of this haunting piece, including s...

Re: The Kaleb Horton Deceased Latvian Foreign Minister Thread, 2022 Edition

Just heard Chicken Shack version of I'd Rather Go Blind on the radio with Christine McVie (or Perfect as she was then known) on vocals. Really wonderful version of one of the great classic songs.

Re: Whatcha reading?

It's an extreme example but I always think of Joyce, labouring over every sentence, every dot and comma in Ulysses for 10 years, to the point of near total blindness. Like I said, i understand authors can be prolific, but whenever I hear one say, oh this book came very easily to me or I wrote it in...

Re: The Kaleb Horton Deceased Latvian Foreign Minister Thread, 2022 Edition

Don't know why but could never really get into them, definitely like the earlier Peter Green stuff more, but still thought they were a very talented crew who could write very decent, occasionally great, tunes. Very sad news.

Re: Return of the Mighty Observations Thread

It's a weird puzzle in that I'll play the intermediate or hard versions and sometimes the hard comes to me right away while the intermediate just goes nowhere.

Re: Return of the Mighty Observations Thread

I've become a bit obsessed with a logic puzzle game of late, Futoshiki. It's the same principle as Sudoku, but on a smaller grid and with an extra twist in limiting what numbers can go where. Very good for concentrating the mind. https://www.8bgames.com/futoshiki/ The Guardian newspaper carries tho...
