    to those who imagine.

    I was saying to a friend that Bowie’s comment about make-up & Lennon was used a lot. But it was made known here.

    “Made known” sounds a bit biblical

    In all ways you read our minds.

    Speaking of which, we have Who coming? Not sure. I’m not spoiling. But I’m imagining. Heading over to music thread.

    limos? I know. Same here. The lady who I’m taking (can’t take guys from other schools -and she has a b/f so I don’t wanna do anything that will cause problems). is wearing white & I have to get a white corsage.

    A limo I aint doing. No way. I’ll catch a bus. But the guys drive so I might hop a lift. I think the girls are going with us or…[Read more]

    Hey guys & thank you. I really feel like I was walking to the gallows every time I moved from class to class. Didn’t know which teacher was going to get all “personal” & say “mate, you haven’t opened up to me recently. In fact, at all? Please tell me everything about your life!”

    Why? I’m not really interested in theirs. Sounds rude, though. So I…[Read more]

    I loved the Banshees! I thought Bootsy was born in Wisconsin? I remember that a boyfriend used to always tell me silly stories about who the head of different bands were -I had zilch knowledge at 16 of The Who, ACDA, Midnight Oil, & hundreds of other headlining acts like Led Zeppelin…

    @ at all. A big thank you to everyone. How so many of you have given ideas/outlines to young Syzygy about various topics. A wonderful lady, whose name has vanished into the vacant & shallow areas of ma brain, offered wonderful suggestions on R & Juliet back in 2017; which films to watch/ignore; the importance of personification. She’s a…[Read more]

    Great kinds of minds!

    @pedant @toinfinityandbepond

    thank you. Yes I recall this, now. Tennant was very good at this -if that’s the right word

    Also @Jimthefish @craig when I click on a user’s name or on the discussion thread I notice we go right back to page 1? From 2017. Do we need a new place?

    Amazing. I loved the “erm, the bit with the headphones? but not the bit with the noise?”

    Gorgeous. Also everyone & I mean everyone was saying they wanted Phoebe to be the next female Doctor? I had no idea who she was! Her name was distinct, though, which is why I’ve remembered it.

    Oh yep @pedant Tennant did 500 miles…[Read more]

    We had kids around from 4 pm but by 6 pm when it’s still light, they’d gone. I normally do have choccies but forgot about them. Thane asked his mates (most drive) if they could go out by they were without spirit as well & thought as they’re 18 a bunch of tall…[Read more]

    Beaut, just beaut. Boy, one thing to say (I’m never ever nit-picky!) but if she’d drop her chin on the high notes, her palate would open up & it would open up the head voice. Small thing. But I’m saying it anyway. Anywaaay.

    She has a gorgeous voice, she’s a beautifully sensitive person. How do I say this? She comes across as a…[Read more]

  • @mudlark @pedant and @winston this is a SPOILER so please look the other way.

    Dickens was an extraordinary perfectionist, and a man of the people. On many occasions he would repeat, “I had at one point many stories I could tell, but, here & now, this is the only story I feel I can tell.”

    He was repetitive at times & acknowledged a level of…[Read more]

    Fair point about “the problem” Buffy satirised.Β  I think satirical is the correct word, for this. Or would it be irony?

    Mum & I were talking about this yesterday. Dracula, as written, was old, corrupt, skin like paper, with bad breath. Nothing sexy about the dood. In Buffy (Winston, spoilers ahead*****) Drac was old,…[Read more]

  • @pedant bummer. I didn’t do scrabble with the PnTTBg thing. πŸ™

  • OK, I’ve just recognised writing in French when a soon to be Scoobie is in Canada is kinda redondante.

    @pedant agreed.

    I never listened, 2 years ago, to this particular TPN guide. Only at about the 5:44 mark did I latch on to that dude from above. The echoes are brilliant. And this may make you yell with frustration but I think this is the best of the Season openers closely followed by…[Read more]

    @pedant @mudlark

    then there’s this.

     

  • @pedant

    Got it!

    @mudlark

    Oh no. No. No. The Buffy Dracula was DELIBERATE. It was supposed to be almost laughable.
