    @mudlark! Good to see you on the music thread. Great song. Lady Hale, however is lost to me? Is she married to a time lord, at all? Or an earth Lord? 🙂

    I know. Not very funny. My humour’s a work in progress.


    Totally agree: the singer and the feelings of certain times attached to certain music. It’s incredibly important to…[Read more]

    Hi @blenkinsopthebrave – thanks for the jeannie lewis songs.
    I’ll admit I’d not heard these nor in fact of her (sorry!).
    Her vocal delivery is really clear and even noticing that makes me realise that most of the people I listen to aren’t!


    Though the song ‘Gary’ made me think of a certain band, but… although a the track…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave Oh it is all fine here. Our P.M is praying for rain… Yes that is the solution to the current crisis being offered by our government. What really depresses me is this incompetent bunch of fools who so clearly care only for their billionaire mates got voted back in despite the overwhelming evidence that they barely share a…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave – ah, interesting…
    Maybe its memory but it could be as the sound is now through different amps and speakers and possibly even slightly sped up videos.

    However, I also believe that pulse may affect this too!


    And yes, Bananarama were ridiculous in many ways (many of them the right ways!).

    @blenkinsopthebrave the ladeez in stocking??  Didn’t do it for you?

    @whisht OH YEZ!  Just to be lecture-y we’d use terms like “locked” for what we’d call “the modern music” 🙂

    The Sinatra is flippin’ LOCKED! And LOADED! Seriously though, that’s one clever as shit producer. Could’ve been a really unrighteous bass sloppy and loud with the horns s…[Read more]

    Greetings from our Brisbane winter -alright, it’s spring, but just & yesterday was 31 & today 34! Madness.

    Yet the non-experts ignore the discussion about “what are we going to do about….global warming?” [singing this to Sound of Music’s “what are we ….about Maria?”]

    I wrote that all-a-muck 😉  I was thinking that to…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave and @winston Read many of his Who novelisations when I was younger.

    @pedant thank you for posting the link. That is a lovely “item”. Something nice on Twitter!!

    @blenkinsopthebrave    That is sad news. He was a great writer with a wonderful imagination who helped create the Whovian universe.I would get into a retrospective of his work on Who.

    Sheee’s baaaaack…


    I am fairly sure I would be less inept at using chopsticks.

    @blenkinsopthebrave and @JanetteB

    I could NOT believe this! He rants on a message about how the Left are haters and warmongers, that there is nothing but peace in Trump, that he’s a Christ loving person who is radical in all the right ways & provides messages of hope & love. Er what? I thought Voight had a good conscience….

    It’s interesting…[Read more]

    Hi there @bluesqueakpip. @mudlark @serahni  and all you great men and women!  @whisht @blenkinsopthebrave @arbutus  @nerys. This idea sounds like it’s about theology only, but I think it’s about changing perceptions -or not changing them?

    Due to the ‘serious’ nature of the post below I thought I’d should share this from a Reuters article which co…[Read more]

    No, that’s Gene Krantz (memorable played by Ed Harris in Apollo 13).

  • syzygy replied to the topic The Kebab & Calculator


    Oh, that’s some connection. I was thinking of, & watching bits of Up in The Air & my mind was drifting to play-boys & then you mention A New Leaf! I remember a well equipped lady in a bikini sidling up to Henry Graham. “I am alive!  I want to give….”

    @blenkinsopthebrave and all.  I just realized how much I sound like an old fart. I might as well have said “cell phones are malarkey!” or “put away that dang texting machine!” or “I see you got one of them computing machines”

    @blenkinsopthebrave   It has become something of a challenge to avoid some of the tech. that I can’t be bothered with. My granddaughters are addicted to their phones ,in fact a lot of adults I know are so boring now because they are constantly looking at their phones. Even sitting around a table chatting with the phone on the table they can’t c…[Read more]

  • @thane16   Yes BC is British Columbia , a very beautiful part of Canada where @blenkinsopthebrave and my daughter live. Many movies and TV shows are filmed there,mostly in Vancouver.

    We watched Dead Like Me way back when it first aired.I think on Showcase. It also has Mandy Patinkin in it.

    @ringleader  Nice Who reference!  @blenkinsopthebrave    I have not signed up for anything yet either. In fact we still have an antenna and watch old fashioned network TV. I can usually find what I want on the internet or my sons get it for me. We just don’t watch enough TV to bother and we can get most new stuff from the library.The spirit of t…[Read more]
