    @Geoffers – a bi late from me but great shout on Lloyd Cole!
    Not that it was likely(!) but what a great call back!

    However – I must take umbrage with “the 90’s weren’t the best decade for music”
    and declare that the 90’s were…. OK and stuff.

    Now, if this became a serve/ return of your 80’s classics to my 90’s then I’m sure you’d win but… hol…[Read more]

    ah @pedant – I’m shocked that you thought I wouldn’t have thought “what would be a track that a Brisbane shopping centre might play?”
    Though true, I then didn’t apply that logic to what I posted!

    ;¬)

    However, I really did think about music piped over a shop, as its a story I have of my own stupidity.
    Forgive me if I’ve already bored everyone…[Read more]

    it would get me out of the store pretty quickly!

    @pedant @geoffers @whisht

    I have heard this too! But it wasn’t a grocery store -or any ‘real’ store but a chiropractor and physio’s HQ. The music they played was that 20th century stuff mum loves. Not nice listening & a lot of screechy violins. Maybe they think if the patients can deal with the music they can handle the pain of a ‘cracked back.’…[Read more]

    Ri3hT!  It is a question I didn’t consider. A grocery store has an actual channel. And it’s an AUs store.  So….they would consider their market, how many songs they re-play & why & which is more likely to be played in the first place?

    @pedant

    i’ve heard many strange tunes at my grocery store, but i shop there mostly after midnight, so maybe the store radio is controlled more by the employees then? lol

    even this!

    The Music Man is Back! it is thane speaking. Mum is excited to see this thread hopping!!

    She was telling in @pedant in Email Bursts (that is what we call them) about how at grocery shops she heard a song from the 1980S which had the words “forever” in it. 24 hours later she thinks it is Kiss song ‘Forever’  which is hilarious because…[Read more]

  • @pedant – Yeah, I went back and forth in my mind about where to put this, and finally ended up putting it here as a companion to The “Best” and “Greatest” Seasons.

    @pedant

    Mum’s apologies Mr P, she didn’t read the first post correctly &around that time she was experiencing some dental problems which led to the DrDentist prescribing some codeine in what is labelled in ‘Straya “Mersyndol, forte” which is  codeine + even more codeine. One reason why she liked swimming in 15 degree water -it numbed her…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave being from Bris, you’ve done this trek many-a-time so we decided to do something unprecedented! Take a holiday which involved considerable driving and renting a lovely home -self catered – in Springbrook. On the first evening after a massive fry up  – – @pedant ignore this: think, instead, of mushrooms -ah, nope, hang on, not…[Read more]

    I was born in 1967 which makes me 51 and one thing I know, @bluesqueakpip m’dear, and understand, is just how much work the arts ‘creates’ -and that was back in the late 90s and into the 00’s.

    TV is even harder. I’d say next to politics working in television certainly ages a person considerably -not necessarily in looks but as noticed in the…[Read more]

    @pedant – Thanks, and I’ll drop it too.  I honestly wasn’t trying for guilt, but to acknowledge that I’m not used to how, um, harsh the internet can be, and thus maybe should be expecting to get castigated.

    I agree with all you say about the episode in my mind, but my heart says it has a flaw I can’t entirely get past.  I hope most people can g…[Read more]

  • Kevin Who replied to the topic Rosa

    @pedant – No, not “literally.”  If anyone had asked, I would have said that I’ve agonized over this so much that the agonizing has colored my feelings, and done it too far.  My mind says it’s a great episode with one flaw that others may consider insignificant.  My feelings say Rosa has caused me a lot of pain.  So my mind needs no convincing, and…[Read more]

  • Kevin Who replied to the topic Rosa

    @pedant – Please, no name-calling.  I am sorry my views on this episode have upset you to the point you felt you had to resort to it.

    @craig – Would you please PM me and @pedant as to whether anyone has crossed the line, and what people should put up with?  Thank you.

    @pedant @margaret-blaine @janetteb @kevinwho @jimthefish

    Sorry, late to the party again (still on holiday). But you all seem to have done your thing. I think the user’s comments are fine – not great, but okay. It’s just the stupid username that’s the problem.

    If they change it, as they say they will, then I’m gonna leave it. For now.

    I will change my name if that makes me seem less toxic

    Just trying to be nice

    I apologize if that’s how I came across I didn’t mean to be and Im just trying to give my opinion in a way that voices how I feel but not too over the top

    Oh and no one loves me at *school* just to confirm not trying to be toxic 🙂

    @pedant I was just giving my opinion that the deliverence of the scene was bad

    The contents had good intentions but the scene itself and the blatancy of the message just annoyed me

    My quote about eating gravel was a bit extreme I admit but I had no intention of being a troll or anything of the sort

    If my opinions do not align with yours that’s…[Read more]

    I don’t care for the user name either, it’s, if I can coin a term, inciteful.  But the comment content seems entirely acceptable.

  • Kevin Who replied to the topic Rosa

    @pedant – I’m giving the benefit of the doubt, since most of the poster’s other entries are adequately thoughtful.
