    @blenkinsopthebrave   Trump has friends in low places. I am sure he will pardon some of his “very fine ” friends before he leaves but who will pardon him I wonder?

    I shall keep an eye open for Christopher Eccleston’s Audio. always liked him.

    Today, this seems sort of appropriate

    Oh how I love this scene!

    @nerys

    Thank you, I don’t feel quite so daft now. X

    As for Trump, I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him, he still has time and power to cause havoc.

    That’s brilliant.   You couldn’t make this stuff up.   (Well, you could, but no-one would believe it).    Four Seasons Total Landscaping is indeed a few yards from a porn shop called Fantasy Island  and just across the road from a crematorium.   The symbolism is irresistible.

    (It really is.   I looked on Streetview,…[Read more]

    Strangely enough, it was this k.d.lang track that was running through my brain for much of yesterday, and I even thought of signing in to post it myself, not being aware that you had already done so several days previously 🙂

    @blenkinsopthebrave   I was doing dishes with the TV on in the next room when they finally called the election in Biden’s favour.  Joe Biden is President and Kamala Harris is the first women in the White House! I feel like I let out a breath that I have been holding for 4 years. Yay for Americans and for Canadians and for the rest of the world, sa…[Read more]

    @Blenkinsopthebrave doesn’t it? How are the Blenkinsops? Well? The wine cellar depleting at all??? 🙂

    @mudlark GOOD to see you! I wonder about the futile & litigious nonsense Trump will follow could help so that the Reps will eventually melt away? On another note, glad your digestive system is working! A happy bowel is a happy Mudlark….

    In one sense, yes; we can breathe again and experience at least a brief interval of euphoria.

    On the other hand, Davros and the Daleks are still out there, lurking, and unless the Orange One resigns in a massive fit of the sulks, there are still 73 days in which he can continue to ignore the ravages of the Covid 19 virus and…[Read more]

    Strange that it should have occurred to you to post this particular clip at this particular time 😉 , although for some reason it does seem apt and has the effect of pouring balm on my troubled soul.

    Thanks for that link.    I absolutely love Hell Bent, more than Heaven Sent.  Heaven Sent was a tour de force, but not fun.    Hell Bent was just a visual and narrative delight from start to finish.

    I’m a sucker for genuinely clever dialogue. “How many regenerations did we grant you? I’ve got all night.” Ouch!

    Or the pilot…[Read more]

    I’ve been on a sentimental journey, thanks to @blenkinsopthebrave *grins*

    The Proms ( all of them) with a little Eccleston, much Tennant and Smith, then on to Capaldi.

    What wonderful music.

    Now I know for sure what some of us have lost, I admit it, I cried.

    Well, I suppose that it’s better to have had all the former and lost them, than never…[Read more]

    Um. My reply just got eaten so try again.

    Thank you for that link @blenkinsopthebrave A good antidote to the news, or lack of. This is torture even for us on the other side of the planet because the welfare of the planet is at stake.

    Fingers crossed, toes crossed,

    Cheers

    ah @blenkinsopthebrave – good times indeed!
    Love kd lang (though don’t listen to her enough – or maybe I just don’t indulge on a rich wine too often!)

    which made me find another beautiful voice…

  • winston replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    @blenkinsopthebrave  Thanks for that! I loved this performance when I first saw it and I love it still. It is so beautiful that it brings tears to my eyes. k.d. lang is a massive talent performing a song written by Leonard Cohen, who needs any more. I love this song and I am going to listen again.

    Stay safe.

    @blenkinsopthebrave I am not sure I could keep it down to just three Desert Island Stories. I would want at least one from each Doctor AG and the first four BG but if I really had to get it down to just two,

    Oh this is tough,..

    1, and 2 Human Nature and Family of Blood. 3. Has to be a Capaldi. Maybe Last Christmas for the reasons mentioned by @de…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave       I am not stranded on a desert island but in the middle of Ontario surrounded by covidiots so thank goodness for DVD collections. If I had to take only 3 episodes they would be from AG Who because I haven’t watched enough BG to have faves. So……

  • @blenkinsopthebrave I agree with you so much that I rarely watch it because it is so intense and sad. This episode is so good it is hard to watch.

    Stay safe.

    @blenkinsopthebrave I know of the book though I have never read it. I do often think of the title, though I thought it was “The Great Australian Ugliness” when I look at post war houses. It seems Australian architecture is on a “race to the bottom”. Our houses get uglier and uglier. There is a street that I walk down when walking into town with…[Read more]
