Any appropriate remarks that we might have heard on “I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue?”
Really? (and only 5 comments)
Been a while, post first 5 tracks on random. No cheating!
1 Blur – To the End 2 Peter Gabriel – Listening Wind 3 Bruce Springsteen and the E St Band – Jungleland (live 1980) 4 Bruce Springsteen (!) – The Ties That Bind 5 I’m Gonna Try – The Monkees
In Canada, all stores will close by April 30th. Inevitable I suppose, but still rather sad.
(outside the UK anyway)
Main headline: Oscar nominations as they happen!!
I have some small interest in this, but does anybody know why this is the most important thing happening on the planet right now?
Nearly 2 years ago I posted this:
I was skeptical, but a work colleague is swearing by it and I am finally giving it a go. Anybody got any further updates? I tried some other methods (detailed in Chubby Checkers) last year and probably in the end only managed a pound or 2 off. My blood pressure was deemed to be very high in a recent routine check so it is time to stop messing around.
Pinging those who had tried it or were doing something else.
FIFA really are intent on destroying the game, aren’t they?
Load of old nonsense or a return to form? I think it was (just) better than last year’s one off episode, but some way off the standard set in the first 2 series. I also think that that the exceptionally modern style regarding Skype calls. Texting etc is going to look very dated in a few years.
Would be nice if he solved more cases instead of running around like a superhero. And there was way too much gun fire.
I know it has been a busy period news-wise, but am shocked nobody has mentioned the long awaited return of Pop Quiz. Through the magic of the internet and a vpn it was available to me through just a click. The well preserved Mike Read shrugged aside years of unemployment, bankruptcy and right wing flirtations and presented it as if he’d been doing nothing else for the last 30 years. Sensibly it was an 80s themed episode, with appropriate guests.
I used to love this show in the 80s, and I have to confess I quite enjoyed it today (got all the intros right!).
Why does this @ thing work sometimes and not others?

Much as I love Blackstar I am playing this several times a day. Mesmerising, moving and devastating.
This poor guy has a tough life. No birthday greetings and then obviously somebody must have intentionally spiked his drinks as “It is well known that I am a Muslim and do not drink, said Toure. “I have always refused alcohol.”. That person has acted disgracefully, committing the double crime of giving a muslim alcohol then allowing him to drive when he believes he is completely sober. Appalling.
We had a fair bit today …,
He likes em
Why is it always at the top, is it considered superior to other posts?
The worst album cover ever. But he truly is ageless isn’t he pop-pickers?
Who knew To the Manor Born was so popular? Baffling.
So teams could risk points reduction if they display a poppy on their shirts and are in “talks” with FIFA? What a ridiculous state of affairs, if you want to honour veterans and people who died fighting for their country then maybe get the players to donate a week’s salary to relevant organisations or use the gate proceeds for something similar. Have a minutes silence before the game. But it is crazy that not wearing one even when playing football for your country can be considered “disrespectful”.
Seems to have been a heart attack.
Citizen’s Bank Park, Philadelphia, PA
I have had the privilege of seeing Springsteen many times over the last 35 years. I have previously seen a few shows in his original heartland of New York City and New Jersey, but never in Philly, another of those original areas that first embraced him over 40 years ago and the city featured many legendary shows in the 70s, 80s and onwards.
In all of those shows I had never heard New York Serenade, the magnificent closing epic from his brilliant second album. Tonight, he opened with it, the string section coming on stage ahead of the band was a big clue, and he and the band then completely nailed it. The show was only 10 minutes old and my trip down was already worth it. Two nights earlier he had played the longest show of his career in the US at the same venue, it was just over 4hrs. A longer show seemed inevitable, but the hottest Sept 9th for more than 130 years, meant that it was out of the question.
So where could the show go from there? We quickly entered party mode with Out in the » Continue Reading.
Wow, what a guy!
Parc Jean-Drapeau, Montreal
Radiohead closed the 3 day Osheaga festival with a marathon 2hr 15 set in front of a sold out crowd of 45,000. Opening with a selection from excellent new album A Moon Shaped Pool, skilfully replacing the lavish orchestrations with keyboards and guitars, they then moved through relative obscurities before breaking out “the hits” in the last hour of the show. Spectacular lighting, sensational sound and a band showing complete mastery of their art compensated for the somewhat cramped and uncomfortable festival conditions on a very warm night.
Was my first Radiohead show in 10 years and most of the early material was from that interim period, Burn the Witch was pounding and ominous, Nude simply beautiful and Bloom was a WTF complete freakout under green strobing lights. Loved The Numbers, possibly my favourite from the new album. Main set closed with an awesome There There and the encore mainly concentrated on OK Computer and, yes, they closed with Creep.
All albums were represented with the exception of The Bends which is one of the greatest albums ever made.
