  1. Hope you don't mind me commenting on this thread as I am far from a football fan. I was born and live in the Midlands backwater of Leicester. I am so sad the 'fairy tale' has ended in this way - the most dignified gentleman unceremoniously dumped. These were a rag tag team of losers and no hopers who became champions of England against literally all the odds. The 'band of brothers' achieved what seemed impossible in the big money game and also in the otherwise shit year that 2016 was for most other things in the world. It is hard to describe what the city was like for a few halcyon days last May. My city was the nearest I have got to the spirit of Glastonbury outside the festival - the happiness, joy, togetherness of fans and non fans. We were literally dancing in the streets. Maybe I was living last season vicariously through my son - a real fan. People paying thousands for tickets for the Everton home match when the trophy was lifted. I said to him, you are about to go to the best gig on the planet - he said no way would he give up his season ticket for the money that day - priceless - something he can remember for the rest of his life - I cannot begin to understand what this achievement meant to a true LCFC fan who never believed this would/could never happen for their 'little club'. It now feels like the Monday after Glastonbury - party's over, back to reality - normal service is resumed. Very sad.
  2. Hologram?
  3. First time user of Dice. So easy, quick and no fees. Also thinking too good to be true - hope we are not going to be disappointed come September! Got the normal refresh pages on See - through at 9.15am but by that time all done and dusted on Dice at two seconds past 9am.
  4. I'd love to say it was one I took, but it's one of my favourite photos that I found on a google search some years ago.
  5. Please keep these two safe for a while yet ....
  6. RIP - they said there would be snow at Christmas ............ Another one from my younger days gone - hope Carl's ok. Another dusting down of the original vinyls to play and remember tonight.
  7. Oh, just remembered that they were performing Soft Bulletin last year, so would probably explain the absence of Do You Realize - but I'm fairly sure they had this at the encore of the Soft Bulletin performance at Alexandra Palace in 2011? Anyway, I am fairly sure there is no way they wouldn't end a set at Glastonbury without it - remembering the emotional end at 2010 - oh dear that's set me off again .........
  8. I'm definitely in - I need at least a yearly 'fix' - and have already got tickets for Brixton in January. I must insist that I get to see Steven perform this again though http://flaminglips.com/video/17454/ Strange thing happened last year - for the first time ever, and I have seen multiple performances, 'Do You Realize' was not included ......
  9. Best of luck to us all!
  10. The grim reaper of 2016 - please stop now - enough is enough, another authentic genius taken from us far too early. My daughter was born whilst 'The most beautiful girl in the world' was playing. A cliche but another person in the 'soundtrack' to my life has gone ..... RIP sweet prince
  11. Thank you so much for setting this up - have emailed you. Best of luck to everyone
  12. Despite the most brilliant help from Avalon-Fields, Miesh and Peroni we were unsuccessful today. Anyway, going to be philosophical here and say how heartwarming it was to get help from people I have never met - restores ones faith, which in the big scheme of things, is far more important! I am sure they had better things to do on a Sunday morning. Many, many thanks again for their help - and a little 'bump' for a worthwhile cause - just sent over a small donation in the way of a thank you.
  13. Oh no...... 2016 can certainly do one. Memories of Keith stabbing the organ at de Montfort Hall many years ago. Off to play America, Lucky Man etc etc. RIP
  14. I was hoping to do this again - worked out well a couple of years ago. Have contacted the festival last week asking if this was ok again, but unfortunately no response as yet. Anyone with insider info if this is still possible?
  15. And such integrity - turned down a knighthood Bowie explained his decision saying, “I would never have any intention of accepting anything like that. I seriously don’t know what it’s for. It’s not what I spent my life working for.”
