Yes, another list, but I think an interesting one. Certainly more diverse than the one we came up with a few months ago.
Coming soon (allegedly)

… is the Covid-19 virus weakening?
UK now has same levels of positive tests as in April, at that time more than 600 people were dying on a daily basis, last time I checked it was around 5 now. So 100 times less dangerous!!??
This could be down to increased testing and less vulnerable groups of people now having it, but viruses do mutate and change over time, sometimes becoming less likely to cause serious illness. They want to survive and if all those carrying it die then they will die too.
Unlike Van, I am not advocating lifting all restrictions just yet, but I wonder if there will come a time when we become more comfortable that it is amongst us and just accept it. Hopefully when a vaccine is also available.
… on his covid skepticism.
Makes a change from him moaning about other artists and record companies ripping him off I suppose.
Love is the King.
Vinyl well on top for physical media, but sales generally dismal.
Very sad news. 2020 sucks.
Thanks for all the entries. And special thanks for the 32 people who posted as I asked with dashes in thetheir offering, the rest made my life very hard.;)
Silly me chose the deadline to be on the day when I had 2 huge work deadlines and also the day before I go on (faurly local) vacation for 2 weeks. So apologies for the errors that will surely be there.
Results in the comments. We had 94 entries and 490 unique films were chosen.
Ok I will do it.
List your top 10 films in order. Include year in case of any confusion. This format please (use dashes not dots or brackets):
1 – Some Like it Hot – 1959
2 – etc
(preferably without a blank line in between)
No. 1 gets 10 points down to 10 getting 1 pt. If no order given then 5pts each.
Please do not include multiple films as one entry. e.g. You cannot say Godfather Trilogy, you have to choose part I or part II (or both) nobody will choose part III.
Deadline is midnight UK time July 31st.
Thanks to all participants.
Bob ties ABBA and Queen for no. 1 albums and Neil goes in at no 2!
Who would have thought that in 1990? What a team, what a manager.
These are starting to happen here (Ottawa region). See link, what do people think? Is any live experience better than none? Can you put your windows down?
Macca’s pretty good late 90s album re-released as a “super deluxe set”, 5 CDs and 2 DVDs plus books, marbles etc The limited edition also with vinyl and “art prints” is 520 quid!! The regular deluxe version is around 200 quid!! I remember picking up the first 3 of these for about 30 quid back in 2011.
To be fair the 2CD version looks decent value having 21 of the main 26 extra tracks (mostly demos and B sides), but these prices are otherwise outrageous.
* 2 of the CDs in in the deluxe edition are apparently each about 30 mins long and another one is spoken word.
Always worth another watch
Interesting article, if you have any interest in the early 80s Liverpool scene or indeed lived there at the time.
I was at University there and routinely at the end of the day would walk to the Pier Head to catch a bus back to the Carnatic Residence Halls, I would normally wander past Probe records so I probably indeed did see her around.
I find the video very affecting.
OK, in the style of Radio 1 in the 70s/80s I am going to count down the albums form 10 to 1, and will then reveal the rest of the top 100, go through this at your own pace, I suggest playing the youtube link to get into the spirit of things.
Some stats: Around 100 contributions, I think 645 dufferent albums were nominated.
Disclaimer: I have double checked the results, but no guarantee everthing is completely correct. I had some trouble from the likes of @Lodestone-of-Wrongness and @Lemonhope trying to sneak in multiple entries …
Originally I put May 31st as a deadline.There have been many contributions and obviously most people currently have a lot of time on their hands so I am moving deadline forward to next Mon 18th May, midnight UK time.
Post in original thread, not here. One list only per person, please. Thanks for all the interest.
We did this a number of years ago. I think the list is here:
Should we try again and see how much has changed? I am prepared to collate them, will set a deadline of May 31st for it. It it could be a sticky mods then that might be helpful.
Rules in first comment, please try and adhere to this to make counting easier.
Living in a Ghost Town, reggae tinged, relevant lyrics, nice harmonica from Mick. Was released 8 minutes ago and I have heard it once.
Now I will expect a rush of people saying it’s not as good as Jumpin Jack Flash, but I think it’s not bad at this stage and I am glad we have it.
$8.7M. Looks pretty nice, maybe The Afterword can club together and we could all live together there? (after CV-19 of course!)
While I am not a fan of him or his politics, I really hope he pulls through. What a devastating situation.
As many here might guess, Wilco are my favourite band. They have just postponed their West coast North American tour (I optimistically have a ticket for a show in August). The Tweedy family are housebound and have been broadcasting “The Tweedy Show” almost every night this week (technical problems one night). Challenging time for UK people being at 9.30pm Central Time (currently 2.30 am UK time), but you don’t have to get up for work, right? It is broadcast on Instagram from Jeff Tweedy’s wife’s account – Susan Tweedy “stuffinourhouse”.
Has featured Jeff in the bath, plenty of ribbing in his direction, some scary coughing from Susan and some sublime songs sung by Jeff and the boys, Sammy and Spencer. Also lots of fan interaction, requests etc reported by Susan.
Only my 3rd day working from home, situation in Ontario, Canada is changing rapidly. Schools have been closed since Mon (would be March break anyway), but most doubt there will be a return before summer vacation end of June. All restaurants and bars are closed (except for delivery/take out), think most non essential businesses are closing down in malls etc. I am only going out to get food and tryng to avoid it as much has possible. Borders are basically closed now except for Canadians and permanent residents. Only about 10 cases in Ottawa so far, but 3 are people who work closely with a colleague’s daughter (all caught in Austria I think), so it is already getting close. And I am reasonably high risk because of Crohn’s and medication I am on for that suppressing immune system.
To be honest I am struggling a bit. Have been close to tears on occasion. My daughter is with me for an extended period of time and I am trying to put a brave face on the situation. I am, anyway. somewhat prone to getting a bit down about things and lots of stuff I would use to combat this, seeing friends » Continue Reading.
Monmouthshire Merlin 15th Sept 1866
OUTBREAK OF CHOLERA.—It is with deep regret we have to announce a serious outbreak of cholera in this place, and the adjoining village of Victoria. The first fatal case occurred on Friday, in, we believe, Limestone Row, Newtown, in a house inhabited by an Irish family, and very much overcrowded. One report says there were 27 persons in the house; but we believe the correct number is 15. The epidemic continues to spread. Up to Tuesday night 12 deaths were reported in Newtown, seven of which took place on Sunday. Three deaths have occurred in the Forge, and several fatal cases in the town. Nearly 20 deaths have occurred in Ebbw Vale and Victoria up to Tuesday night. We hear that only one death occurred on Tuesday. the greatest alarm has prevailed among the people since the outbreak. On the fact becoming known to Mrs. Darby, she at once despatched a telegram for a large supply of disinfectants, and entrusted them to Mr. Henry, town agent, for gratuitous distribution amongst the inhabitants. On Sunday Mr. Henry’s house was visited by hundreds of persons with bottles for supplies. We are under lasting obligation » Continue Reading.
