Big collector of signed prints...hang them on the wall, look at them and enjoy them every day really.  Great investment as well.

Quote from: Slim on May 25, 2024, 09:39:14 AMNadine Shah, Filthy Underneath. Nadine is on Jools Holland later this evening.
Kind of known her since she was little.  She was always a nice girl.  I used to snigger when she said she wanted to be a singer.  She's done good, although it's not really my thing.

Coincidentally...I sold a single ticket for Joanna newsom back in 2005 on eBay...met the buyer and it was Nadine...

Good luck, Nick...the pressure to get there on time and to get a good spot will be the death of me one day, I'm sure.

I paid £499.95 for 2 for the night before Nick is going.  Ridiculous, but gig prices are these days.  Justified as I'm taking my brother for his 60th and I'm crashing at his house, so at least it saves on hotel costs..

PJ Harvey's 'Rid of Me' and Nirvana's 'In Utero' are 2 of my favourite records of the 90's and certainly hear his sonic fingerprints.  61 is stupidly young.

Not as bad as sky news reporting that it was Peter Andre that chose the location for the video for 'Mysterious Girl'. Wtf?

Quote from: captainkurtz on May 01, 2024, 11:35:06 AMThere's just as many arseholes riding bikes as there is driving cars - but cyclists just seem that much more sanctimonious.  Prick.
As a cyclist, I know for a fact that there are more arseholes driving cars. When I'm a driver I know for a fact that there are more arseholes driving cars. Horse riders tend to be arseholes too.

Of course cyclists are sanctimonious, we're better for the environment :) Drivists have much more of a tendency to be Psycopathic.
Well there's more people driving cars on the road than there are riding bikes, so there probably is more...

I had a lance armstrong wannabe berate me severely after I had stopped to allow an old gentleman to cross the road with his dog.  He went mental directly outside my house at about 8am last Saturday before taking off...of course I had to drive up to him and stop him whereupon he leaned his horrible helmeted head into my window all sweaty and red and telling me I had stopped to put my seatbelt on. 

Thing is, he couldn't see the old man as he was obscured by a parked car - there's a chance he could have taken him out id id not stopped.

I alternate between an Oris and my Dad's old Rolex Air King (from 1975).





I bought myself a GMT Master II for my 30th Birthday - it was either that or see Rush in Toronto who were playing the same night.  I never wear it and it sits in a box.  Although its appreciated in value significantly, I do think I should have gone to see Rush - albeit, I did make a trip to TO a decade later to see them there.
