    Unpopular Opinions 2

    Yep. Soy sauce on toast. Just a few drips. I'd like to think it was because of the recession at the time - but I doubt it.

    My dad used to eat this on toast.
  3. Yeah, it reminds of me of something, i just can't put my finger on it. Swearing a lot in a loud annoying voice.... hmmmm....
  4. You associate with the alt-right. It doesn't make you one of them. But you are not a politician. You don't have the responsibility to your constituents. There is a distinction between association and membership, if I can put it that way, but depending on who you are, that can have different meaning and importance. If politicians are cosying up to known racists and/or far-right idealogues, they should wear it for what it is.

    2018/19 Champions & Europa League

    Aguer-NO! Haha. But on a serious note **** I hate VAR. Hate it hate it hate it. You cannot celebrate any more. The sponteneity is gone. One eye will always forever be on the ref for some infringement. It really ruins everything. It creates drama, it's true, and schadenfraude in spades (like this morning), but, I just hate it. And I don't care if it gets it right (like it has in the CL the last couple of days, although the Spurs one was a bit dicey). Football is about goals. How do you turn the best thing about the game into a ******* tax audit. Well done. Anyway - would love to see Ajax go all the way because they are fun to watch. They won't of course but it's fun to think about. I still have fond memories of '95 with all my dutch relos getting excited even though none of them are football fans, let alone Ajax fans. That was a team alright. Again though - next year, the team will be split up and sent to the four corners of bench warming mega millionaire purgatory. What a ******* world. I'm going outside to kick a can.

    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    I'm sure a lot of it is down to just not knowing any more. But.. I just remember when there was something for everyone in the city. Dirty pubs, high end bars. Grimy snooker halls, ritzy clubs. Foreign food mixed business grocery type places. Independent book shops and record exchanges. Rag trade outlets. Disposal stores. And all the designer joints as well, sure. And interesting people. It's probably my cynicism and age but ****, theres not many of those about.

    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    It doesn't happen like that in the movies. well I've spent the last few days in the city and **** me dead it makes me sad to see what this place has become. So many little shops and things have made way for for wankery, the whole place is just one part corporate shithole three parts paean to ****wittery. I'm sure every generation feels this to some extent but my god, what a soulless playground for vacuous entitlement. So many people and such shiny bright emptiness.

    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    I know I laughed but it was a knowing, bitter laugh. The latest example: last week I washed the sheets when they'd been washed the day before. But.... just you try doing nothing! Just you try.....

    Yeah I can't really remember anything about either of those (spin city and newsradio) to be honest, just that I used to watch them from time to time.

    Yeah it was actually a bit British style wasn't it. A bit of farce, and a lot of clever language stuff. Which fit his character as well I suppose. There were some other good ones in that post-seinfeld era as well, the 90s. I seem to remember Newsradio (?) was alright, although I didn't watch it regularly. What was the one about the Mayor's office with Michael J Fox? Or maybe I'm just confusing things. The kid from the wonder years was in one called Working which I liked. I suppose Roseanne had a bit of an impact too. Grounded for Life was a bit good. Then it seemed to flip back to the old formulas.

    Music Thread 3

    Yeah, it's a pretty great album. And, I dare say, pretty timeless .I guess that's what you were saying in a way. When I first heard it, I just assumed it was recent (this would have been, what, early 90s I guess). If I'd never heard it I'd believe you if you told me it was new, now. Haha, I jsut remembered in year 8 we had to do a thing for music where we did a project on a band and talk about them and play a song and my mate did the Femmes and put on "Add It Up" and the teacher was nodding along, and suddenly remembered the next verse and went, "oh ****, oh ****" and had to pull the plug. When we played Blister in the Sun yesterday most of the kids were digging it, but there were teachers of all ages having a good time too And then, "I stain my sheets" haha. Awkward.... ANd yeah, ****, Kiss Off is so dark heh, that bit.

    Yeah I didn't mean their kids LIKED listening to it heh. (Although my mum loves all that stuff; her dad LOVED Rogers and Hammerstein. She also loved the Beatles).

    Music Thread 3

    Yeah pretty much, but similarly to your experience all the gushing over it didn't help either. I think it's kind of unfair to dump on Climb Every Mountain. It belongs in the "big musical" sphere which has different parameters For one thing, the original audience was the depression/ww2 era generation (and their kids), all the popular music they grew up with was extremely schmaltzy.

    Oh well, yeah, I mean, Add it Up is possibly better I suppose. I refuse to waste my time posting any music I don't like. So no powderfinger for you.

    Yeah, I'm not sure I've seen such a reaction from you so I'm curious. Actually the blister one happened because the guitarist accidentally played a bit from it trying to work out something else and I did the drums bit. Kids knew it though.

    Wow! Ha. What don't you like? I should add I chose none of these, hadn't heard the John mayer. They were all kid choices. There were others I have no idea what they were though mostly non descript ballads.

    Had a jam today. Always good.... Plus a few others, I think.... Not much beats it.... whatever the songs.
  20. Seems to be a northern subcontinent thing, although I doubt that's got anything to do with why it happens in perth
