    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?

    also, its not Alphaville’s Forever Young. I thought of this originally thinking I had nailed it. I think a few  years ago the New Zealand and Australian travel organisations or even the NZ government used that song to advertise the country as a tourist destination.

    @geoffers That’s terrific! I haven’t experienced much ’90s music? But I will now look at much more. Actually Mum would reckon that she’s heard a lot of music from the 90s which she also likes a lot: I didn’t know that! The APP sounds like a terrific band and in listening to some last night (during the tennis) I think it’s like Pink Floyd but not…[Read more]

    Ok. I have clues.

    she was watching tennis & dad said “I could murder a cold one.”

    No-one said anything. He never says “murder” this … She says, “say it again. SLOWLY.”

    So he says:  “I could murder a cold one.”

    With a lot of grog on hand (she’s allowed now on account of her teeth…long story).

    We have crossed Tom and Mr Parson’s off the list (but it looks like there’s no apostrophe). Unfortunately. They were awesome songs and I personally haven’t heard them before. Through the door I gave her a bar piece (a sentence of music) and she…[Read more]

    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]

    ‘fraid I don’t know about that one….

    I have an enquiry, seeing as I love Laura Linney but not so much Jason Bateman who appears to be in everything, does anyone find The Ozarks appealing? This is the actual Netflix series -not the place.

    @kevinwho

    Puro here. I didn’t know there are vague prophecies trotted out for finales. The prophecy was a clever algorithm, explained as such and used sensibly to explain why the young Doctor wanted to “run” in the first place. He left because of what he heard.  The regeneration energy was established BG but in AG Who it was used in The…[Read more]

    I was watching Twitter on my own. I thought I was watching the new “type” of Brexit deal of your PM? It was the vote for the Irish Backstop which would be left in the hands of the UK rather than the EU? (I feel bad I don’t know this part better!).

    I’m now listening to people talking about the possible vote against your PMs plan- which, I heard on…[Read more]

    I think the cyberman (wood) was a long, long time ago on Trenzalore? The cybermen sent many different things to stop Trenzalore so the Doctor simply never left.

    @kevinwho

    I think the 1st one (the train) doesn’t need an explanation. It’s been the case since at least 2006 that the Doctor ‘cooks’  so any burns & bruises are sorted out with extra regeneration energy. When SmithDoc gave his regeneration energy to River to fix her hand & also to stop her dying? I think the planets were put back in orbit using…[Read more]

    I think you said that really well. & I would agree, personally.

    Also, as we’re on the Sofa, Mum was asking how your study is doing? Have you finished & do you have a lot more to do?

    Oh dear. Not good is it?  think of Malcolm Fraser & how he decried the behaviour and polices of our more recent Libs/Nat Parties and the “shell that is left of once good & balanced opposition” Even Gough Whitlam for many a decade despising Fraser grudgingly respected this new ‘statesman.’  Both shared an admiration for the stunningly c…[Read more]

    @miapatrick

    Elsewhere in the episode a waitress tells them to leave. All we can be certain of the other customers is complicity. Are they silent out of shock for who has walked into the place? Or out of tension for what they know is about to happen? The episode essentially shows three attitudes: overt racism, complacency/indifference to racism,…

    Yep, Brisbane is nice but very hot. Recently, we were almost in NSW 🙂 At Springbrook -hadn’t been there before. Terrific lagoons, waterfalls, masses of blue & green glow-worms and on that property some seriously large echidnas. Spikey, cross things -especially if you don’t let them get to breakfast early!

    Love that handle! Awesome! (more creative than mine, for sure). I’m sure you’ll have a great time.

    Gidday. Welcome from Oz. I think the BBC is strapped for funds. It isn’t like the channels or the huge production areas available in the US. Even Aus’ own series are 6 hour long-shows. The most loved, Rake, didn’t come out each year & had 7 or maybe 8 eps when it did. The TV shows you’ve mentioned have millions -not just in production…[Read more]
