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?!?

Re: A Bunch of Fives (New Challenge Thread)

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...

Re: Return of the Mighty Observations Thread

1) peel a banana and cut it into 4 pieces or so 2) freeze it 3) once frozen, blend it with some oat milk (the extra creamy stuff is best IMO) 4) add a flavour (strawberries, or cocoa powder etc) 5) blend You get a better milkshake than any fast-food place can come up with. If you use just a splash ...

Re: A Bunch of Fives (New Challenge Thread)

Brenda Lee Objectively well written, played, and sung but doesn't hold my attention the way it should. That's probably because I didn't grow up listening to Brenda and this seems to be a big component of anything I love that came out prior to the mid-80s Underground Heroes Took me a while to get ove...
