  1. Always had a soft spot for The Last Starfighter:
  2. Got standing tickets to the London gig. Finally!
  3. Saw this on Saturday and enjoyed it, despite not liking Hereditary much. Personally I thought there was a lot of humour in the film, something that hasn't been commented on as much, at least in this thread. Loads of bits that had people laughing out loud in the cinema I went to.
  4. I'm so in. Don't care which venue. I've missed them three times now (Albert Hall gig, two chances to see in Oslo and Lyons). Not going to miss them this time.
  5. Recently discovered Midlake's 2006 album 'The Trials of Van Occupanther'. The whole album is just wonderful, the sort of thing you can just play on a loop and let seep into you, but I particularly like this one:
  6. Listening to ‘Oranges and Lemons’ on the train home now, and it’s wonderful
  7. Rise from your gwave! So I recently decided to do a deep dive into XTC after seeing the fairly recent doc on Sky Arts, for which there is this excellent trailer: Not for the first time in my life I'm kicking myself for not discovering a band's work sooner. I'd always liked 'Senses Working Overtime', and 'Making Plans for Nigel' as a kid, but I'd never dove in as an adult, despite occasionally hearing them referred to as geniuses. And of course, they were fucking amazing. Andy Partridge talks in the documentary about how they started pretty good and got better, but I do think there was a sweet spot which is basically 'Drums and Wires' and 'Black Sea'. The latter in particular is utterly perfect in my opinion. The opening 5 tracks (Respectable Street/Generals and Majors/Living Through another Cuba/Love at First Sight/Rocket from a Bottle) are just smash after smash, it then takes a pause for breath with 'No Language in Our Lungs' (which is still great, but musically a definite breather), but then you're into another run of belters (Towers of London/Paper and Iron/Burning with Optimism's Flames/Sgt Rock), until Travels in Nihilon turns things all experimental. I also really like 'English Settlement', 'Mummer', and 'The Big Express' , but I feel like there's an urgency to that first pair of albums with Dave Gregory on guitar which perfectly blends the New Wave punk of their first two albums with pure pop hooks, but also an experimental inquisitiveness. What Partridge himself calls "Gently exploratory pop music". I still have a few more albums to try. I haven't quite clicked with 'Skylarking' yet, but I'll probably fall asleep to it on the train at some point and wake up loving it. Excellent clips of 'Helicopter' from 'Drums and Wires' And 'Living Through another Cuba'/'Generals and Majors':
  8. Just make that a part of Creative Mode.
  9. Surprised that anyone was surprised about where Arya had gone to, looking all determined. She'd literally just been told to go kill someone with "Blue Eyes".
  10. She used one of her signature moves, shown in her training scene with Brienne. The NK had her knife arm in one hand, and her throat in the other. What a simpleton he must be not to realise that she was actually the best fighting machine in Westeros, with a signature move whereby she can transfer her weapon between hands! While being choked! I thought it was the perfect culmination of everything we've seen Arya learning throughout her arc.
  11. Thanks to all who replied with their feedback on the game. I’m going to tuck in over the Easter break I think.
  12. I've held off on this because I haven't had any time for gaming lately, and because the setting isn't one I'm naturally drawn to. However - Bloodborne is one of my favourite games ever, and it seems wrong not to be playing this alongside you guys. What's the general consensus for where this sits in the Pantheon? New best one ever? Jury still out?
  13. I'm all over this, but I do worry about my vanilla PS4 coping. Might finally be time to upgrade.
