Re: A Bunch of Fives (New Challenge Thread)

Oliver has the next right of refusal. OK - here we go... although this will probably be the last set I post but I'll still drop in to review. As it's the last, I'll start with my Dad's favourite song. He used to say his favourite song was "Waterloo Sunset' but it was this. I first discovered music ...

Re: Misheard Lyrics

Sister Sledge - He's the Greatest Dancer I just found out that the main part goes: Oh what, wow, he's the greatest dancer And not: I wonder why he's the greatest dancer I always thought it was a silly question... you clearly have to spend hours practicing to get to the position of 'greatest dancer' ...

Re: A Bunch of Fives (New Challenge Thread)

Santigold - one of those artists I like without ever buying anything or seeking anything else out. I like this but not spectacularly, even though every aspect of it is interesting. Maybe it's time to go further - what's a recommended album? Sincere Engineer - the vocal reminds me of Camp Cope, I was...

Re: No, No, Don't Worry. Racism is Pretty Much Over.

Hard to believe that made it past the censors and on the air. What were they thinking? :huh: I know something from that late 70s doesn't really fit in with this thread but it didn't deserve it's own one. After seeing some of the 'comedy' shows from the 70s/80s I'm not sure there were any censors lo...

Re: A Bunch of Fives (New Challenge Thread)

Hot Snakes - like this a lot. If you described it to me, I'm not sure I'd get the appeal, especially with the scream-y vocals but it works. And it's relentlessly good. TORRES - there's something a little unusual about her voice and I can't quite put my finger on what it is. I do like the the strange...

Re: The All Smiths/Morrissey Thread

Backstage at TOTP when Morrissey played The Last of the Famous International Playboys (and it became the sleeve for the reissue of the same song)

He seems strangely thrilled

They started looking like Spandau Ballet in 1985. I'm glad they called it a day before it could have got worse.
Just as an aside, how on earth did Spandau Ballet go from "The Freeze / To Cut a Long Story Short / Chant #1" to "True / Gold" in 2 years?!?

Slime - this one grows on me (and, oof, just like that I'm back to jokes about band names) but joking aside, it really did. At first it sounded a little generic to my ears but after a couple of listens I was getting into it paying more attention. Definitely a grower. ... Are you going around shouti...

Tried the banana/oatmilk shake tonight. I think I used a bit too much of the milk, but, yeah, it's decent stuff. Thanks for the recipe!
I particularly like the way I can pretend it's healthy too because it has fruit it in.

Re: Return of the Mighty Observations Thread

My partner makes these all the time (very similar recipe). It's here fave dessert. We always have gallon freezer bags of bananas in the freezer. I used to get excited when I saw a CD or electronics on sale somewhere, now it's when I see bananas on clearance because they're slightly browning. When I...
