    @pedant must also check out the light weight nature of cars -when they’re not!  Didn’t realise that. Also, traversing the narrow path that is nuance.

    PS:   @Cathannabel I shall find more Aretha choons (the latest from @whisht I think) but no J. Strauss 🙂

    @pedant

    Yes it is like that. I think the fast beat, rhythmic repetition, manic singing style -a touch of righteous rage    – alongside similar chords & there’s an eerie resemblance   🙂

    On the other thread you mentioned the fucker that is PTSD?

    @cathannabel This lovely rendition is for you! Colourful and heart warming.

    I had NO idea I missed that comment about The Buggles and The Art of Noise! Thank you for that.  I had Dudley right but somehow it was ‘Margaret’ not Anne, weirdly.

    and to @pedant!

    Mr P has had a day or so of illness so a fun & totally nutty song (with some coarse language I’m afraid) will get your head happily noddin’ up ‘n’ down. My I present: Screeching Weasel…     🙂

    Yes indeed Thane enjoyed Ashes to Ashes after an initial belief it was slow and tedious. He was roundly walloped!

    that sounds awful! I’m so sorry that happened. At least the injuries were minimal but certainly, dealing with new vehicles, insurance, titles is all very depressing.

    Some modern cars are pretty ‘light weight’ but more and more have 5 * safety ratings. After years with a 1989 Ford I finally purchased a new car 7 years ago with a terrific…[Read more]

    Sorry Miss Ichi I forgto to tag you in the conversation.

    I read what you wrote on the other thread about where people get their sources from which then shapes their opinion in a world of echo chambers where egregious errors have been made in the information processing part of our brains, perhaps.

    And I don’t see the Capaldi period as a…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip @pedant

    But was it that they didn’t like Capaldi or was it because they didn’t like (what some saw as) “depressing” stories without escapism in Series 8, 9 or even 10?  Was it a left-over annoyance at Clara -the actress? Could it be there was an issue in this 30% to do with Pearl Mackie?

    To keep this Who-oriented, there’s a big…[Read more]

  • @hiker  @oswald  @ichabod and many others including @kharis (waving hello).

    Absolutely: Loved PC in this role; loved all the stories -even The Moon As an Egg which, despite the general hilarity, I found rather endearing. And it had Hermoine….? wonderful actress who isn’t seen often enough (on telly at least).

    Still, looking forward to the nex…[Read more]

    @blenkinsopthebrave Oh yes we agree -that is Puro (me) and Thane . I like Dreyfus’ performance a lot -and Francois Truffaut (no doubt I spelled that wrong)  It is optimistic and at points very funny too.

    @JanetteB I understand totally! It was an awful time in one way, wasn’t it?

    Oh no! About Close Encounters…. Mum loves it and we’re watching it again (I don’t remember watching it when I was four except I remembered the scary bits) . Mum likes it because of the musical elements and she says that’s one reason why she was fascinated by music. In Adelaide Kodaly systems of music weren’t taught and so in…[Read more]
