  1. :D :D ARGH sold out ?! :( Might head down there anyway, bound to be touts outside (hopefully !).
  2. That's great, I only expected London anyway. It's often a given that it's London for overseas bands (I know it is for Pearl Jam, in any case).
  3. Since the snowjob '99 videos were promptly removed, watch/save this while it lasts: Indestructible live on Open Mike with Mike Bullard ^_^
  4. Yep, brilliant series - just hate waiting for each episode ! Gutted about Eddard Stark's end. Sean Bean's such a hero - a cool, talented, Northern, working-class Bennite - ticks all the boxes.
  5. Agree with this. You forgot to mention the significant section of society who haven't the foggiest about this newfangled email nonsense - namely the elderly, who rely on post for all sorts - medicine, pension entitlements being the most obvious examples. Also if your mail is anything like our Royal Mail, it wasn't designed to make money in the first place; it was designed to deliver a public service. So prices set at as low as they can go before making a loss to ensure accessibility for all, creating an equitable network that delivers to all - regardless how rural and hard to get to it is etc. Privatisation not only changes that ethos into profit-seeking-at-all-costs, but it doesn't even deliver your goal of breaking the strike, as we here regularly have strikes in once-nationalised businesses (British Airways most recently). I don't know how far Canada's gone in that direction, but privatisation here has a horrendous track-record, to the point where even the majority of our Tories - who voted for it - support renationalising/oppose anymore privatising (of course our neoliberal stooges of politicians don't listen and are in the process of part-privatising Royal Mail, against the public's wishes).
  6. I haven't seen the film, but his distribution methods certainly interesting - we'll have to wait and see how he gets on, but I support the principle behind it. Red state, as in staunch Republican, Religious Right ? Only in America can "Red" mean that. ;)
  7. Ideal timing for the Tories, ey. The situation in Canada reminds me of what we had in the 80's: a more right-wing than usual Tory, who's not terribly interested in consensus or compromise with other parties, but basically unopposed because the Left is so hopelessly split. I suppose the key difference here is, unlike in the 80's when there was a fairly big gap between how Labour (socialists) and SDP (social democrats) wanted to shape the world in the midst of the Cold War, from an outsiders perspective the Liberals and NDP seem to be social-liberals and social democrats, which are found together in parties all around the world - which begs the question, why haven't they amalgamated? Seems to me you might getting something resembling a social democratic opposition, but with the added confidence to create a bold platform that having a significant support base/vote would grant you. Saying that, if I were a Canadian I'd vote for whichever party likeliest to offer a proportional voting system, as today's "social democrats" make yesteryears Tories look like socialists.

  9. Didn't find it funny, but it was a good rant. Least your Tories are plummeting; ours are pretty much guaranteed to be governing for the next half a decade. :angry: ;)
  10. Pretty pictures in a magazine Everybody is so make believe, it's true I used to be sad now I'm just bored with you. You're doomed to repeat the past 'Cause nothing is going to last I'll burn all your photographs Ryan Adams - Burning Photographs.
  11. "Mr. Ploot ? Homer Simpson here. When you sold me this house, you forgot to mention one little thing: YOU DIDN'T TELL ME IT WAS BUILT ON AN INDIAN BURIAL GROUND!" *pause* "NO, YOU DIDN'T!" *pause* "Well, that's not my recollection!" *pause* "YEAH? WELL, all right, GOODBYE!" *hangs up phone* "He says he mentioned it five or six times." "Uh oh, looks like ol' Bullwinkle's kind of got a taste of his own medicine haha" "Haha he certainly did, Bill" "Wait, what did that mean? Did what I say make sense?" "Well...no, not really, Bill" "Boy, now I know how the pilgrims felt haha" "What are you talking about, Bill?" Been re-visiting the 2nd series this week so you couldn't have timed it better.
  12. No idea, but having checked the wiki to make sure it's the same thing as the old Amiga game I had (it is) I'll go for Linka, as she's from Eastern Europe and is therefore most likely offering a cheaper and better service in her trade than just about anyone. Favourite games console ?
  13. What a load of shit. ;) Doesn't even make sense ? Every man needs to have XY chromosomes.
  14. In response to Shade's upload of an Oceansize album. Bit of a daft question, really.
  15. Yeah, while I'm sympathetic to PETA's aims I do agree that they shoot themselves in the foot sometimes. But pie-throwing isn't terrorism, and to call it so is just laughable. It's like our government's recently had one of their documents leaked where they listed eco-activists alongside terrorists. ;) Now, Animals Liberation Front - that could legitimately be called a terrorist group.
  16. Help as in, they make the act of murder incredibly easier ? Do you disagree with that ? Well, yeah - indirect but with far more culpability for the negative effects given guns were created with killing people in mind. As you say, removal of knives and forks from our society will see no difference regarding the obesity rate, but as I've intimated in my above post, I'm willing to bet the opposite for guns. Perhaps - I've never heard of such a case - but that'd mean we're talking an armed militia-hostage situation or these are taking place in a part of the world where law enforcement isn't up to Western standards because presumably they'd have had to have all been done seperately if they were done using box cutters, and I'd like to think we could catch them after half of 300 individual murders (I know - ambitious target !). Yeah, but you do realise a list of THE WORLD'S MOST DEADLIEST SERIAL-KILLERS EVAR! aren't representative of murder on the whole? They're far more likely to go for unconventional methods - if only because they're more likely to prolong it in order to gain enjoyment from it. You could probably accumulate all those deaths caused by other weapons in your list and they still wouldn't make a dent on the US's yearly statistics - guns would still be the most used weapon. It's illegal to possess marijuana in the UK too, but I know exactly where to find it here, and I know dozens of mates who smoke it on a regular basis; alternatively I haven't the foggiest where to get a gun and I know absolutely no-one who has one (even my friends from the shadier areas of town wouldn't) - so I don't think drugs are all that comparable. Right, but I've never said guns = crime and that the removal solves all problems, I'm saying guns help crime (you've even quoted it, ffs).

  18. Little James is worse than ICSAL or PYMWYMI; at least the former has the riff - Little James has precisely fuck all. Woeful song. SOTSOG would've been decent enough if they replaced Little James for LAMB, and ditched at least one of the above.
