    @Winston @pedant and anyone with approaching or passing winter colds.

    For anyone feeling under the weather with partners very unwell including Mr @missy.

    I had a tear for Miller & James (sounds like a sketch act which both may’ve loved).

    @whisht good to see you back on the music boards! Don’t leave them -you make these boards hum & tingle -all…[Read more]

    I had to read that twice.

    “the birth of the reader must be required by the death of the author.” I had to Google this & read IT twice too. 🙂 I couldn’t cope with Derrida or Foucault so I stopped at ‘F’ 😉

    If you think of the Doctor’s speech with Missy & the Master on kindness, that really sums up Barthes’s idea beautifully. Well…[Read more]

    Full of ….it? Ah some NY grog! Well that’s perfectly acceptable: delicious, legal, delicious, legal, fun, in the spirit of the new year god of all ….Sun Ra…

    You lost the channel?  Where’d it go?  🙂

    You have a good son who earns some cash. Thus you’ll get the episode. It’s annoying that it’s not on the DVD with all 12-13 other episo…[Read more]

    Oh Gawd. That was on Hell Bent. Jeepers. I read that page. It’s all me. Blabbing. Mind you I was pretty ….well …you know…..lots of pain relief. ….High as a kite.

    Blabbers.

  • syzygy replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @pedant @janetteB  Gawd, do I? I thought it was just the once. I thought this: “it took pedant probably hours to find that!”  Except it didn’t, did it? 2 minutes & I’m blabbing about something I haven’t seen yet. Jeepers. Senility isn’t it. I hope. It’s random stupidity.

    if not senility, it was the other thing.

  • syzygy replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @bluesqueakpip thank you for this…

    @pedant “dear oh dear” my ass. 🙂  I commented but didn’t (‘ahem’) watch it.  I read some comments, thought (potentially a thought) I’d watch it forthwith.

    But it never happened. I totally missed it.

    Senility approaches

    welcome back. The Pippettes!  Or is it ‘Pipettes?’

    I love the ice cream chord structure: Chord 1, chord vi, iv, v and repeat….

    Bowie’s blonde hair & Spray Tan Era was a tad …odd. But yes, his impeccable timing, no over-doing it on the stage gave hints of the performer he would eventually become, I think. A more approachable stage…[Read more]

    @craig  ??

    Please sir, we need a new Sofa, I think. I can’t find things. There’s old wrappers from sweeties in 2017. And now I’ve gone & lost a whole memory thing. It’s been swiped. No Resolution. How could this happen? Did it have the Daleks? It had to, right? All the requirements et. al etc etc.

  • syzygy replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    Okaaay.

    I’ve missed something. Resolution….This was an episode airing…..when? ‘This’ year as in Dec 31 2018/2019 (NY day)?

    I MISSED IT.

    How is this possible?

    Is it on the DVD of the Whitakker series?

    over appreciating old and new Who as works created by, and reflecting, and being reflected by, the contexts in which the episodes are made? …

    Oh good Lord! The intertextualposttextual-analysis would age me. But I can imagine a dalek-y ‘voice’

    @miapatrick, Fantastic! And agreed it’s displacement or just thought driven in every way & thus actual study contributing to real-life core learnings and core values. 😉

    After all, the weasel words of the QLD public service aid you in their service -they’re good for that. But you do real study which truly benefits many others.

    Well, fucking hell people from @missy to @Bluesqueakpip to @pedant and @gamergirlavatar @nerys @toinfinityandbepond @whisht (well, HELLOO you!) you’ve all expressed feelings on sexism, political correctness and  cooking.

    About which tanks do we speak?  Armoured or Dartank?

  • syzygy replied to the topic General Music thread 4

    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]
