  1. Yep, absolutely. Not just the porn thing, its the media in general, with certain TV channels pushing the boundaries of acceptability, all in the name of viewing figures, no wonder some kids are confused, mixed messages, social media pressure, mates pressure, a fuckin nightmare. Society has got to change perceptions and behaviours,we all have a part to play (all on here know that, apologies). You're right to worry as a dad, but just remember to step back a little and let them grow, its a difficult balance, but all part of being a decent parent. Its not all doom and gloom, most kids are just that, kids. Fuck me, they've had to deal with a shit ton more stuff than I ever did at their age, I'm just thankful I lived my teen years when I did, today I'd be fucked.

  3. Celebrating how Adele's sales are bigger than someone's favourite artist is like celebrating how McDonalds is so much bigger than someone's favourite restaurant.

  4. It could be a reference to Joseph Goebbels, although unlike Mad Cool he was actually good at propaganda.

  5. Sickening but not surprised. The kind of scum that behave like this know that even if caught fuck all will happen, just look at the rape conviction rates, a fuckin disgrace. Parents need to start teaching their kids morals, respect and how to be a decent human. All I hear from our leaders is empty words and no action, all bollocks. Too many victims out there, and will continue to be until there is a real marked change in behaviours and attitude towards women. What I would say is those of you who do have daughters, please have these conversations with them to ensure that they at least have awareness, you won't always be there to protect them. Also, it's important to state that not all lads behave this way, there are some nice blokes out there. Apologies for rant but speaking as dad with experience.

  9. i did what i had always planned to do when the lineup/clashes came out, which was to catch the first 5-6 songs of Radiohead and then head up to the Park for the Flaming Lips with a nice fresh pint or two - there were a fair few people doing the same, walking past an irate woman shouting at her boyfriend pointing at the stage with Radiohead yelling 'two bloody hours of this, Matthew?' which never fails to tickle me, and still gets used by me to punctuate long boring things 😄 flaming lips were ace, but ive seen them perhaps ten times so i know what to expect - and bringing first timers to see em is a great thing!

  11. New song from Jack White. There's a Call of Duty trailer version, and a stripped back one for those who aren't infinitely content with just one version. Pretty cool.

  12. It sounds like he's aiming for full stadium shows with his own massive production rather than a festival set-up like this would be. Though that's assuming any of them have slots free next summer, given Wembley, Emirates, Tottenham and Olympic Stadiums all have a ton of stuff. There's probably one I'm missing that's yet to have bookings to such a degree. Twickenham, maybe?

  14. Yeah nothing to see here … 223 deaths today … and not even at the start of winter … highest infection numbers in the world … and yes it is relevant … not as much as before but that is lots of people becoming I’ll with covid .. and herd immunity doesn’t exist as we should all know by now … a fully functional economy just won’t work with that level of sickness in the population … Yet still those people have fallen for the message of Boris that it’s all over … what an absolute shit show this country has become if people aren’t able to do basic things for other people to prevent them becoming I’ll … fuck Boris and the clowns that run this plague island

  19. Can’t help but feel like we are veering into sky high predictions here. Seems like time for our annual “this will be the strongest reading ever” before what is announced is the weakest reading ever. If you look back at our threads we tend to go in cycles here 😂 at one point the expectations always get sky high.

  20. Mrs P isn't comfy with the big crowds and was nervous with the Stones so we agreed to do our own thing. I spent several hours near the front with Elvis Costello, Primals, then Mick and the lads. She spent several hours with Steve Winwood, Chase & Status, a Salsa lesson, her pick of the deserted fresh long drops in Glasto Latino, a chat with some random at the Pennard Organic wine tent, and finished her evening with Public Enemy. She still reckons she had the better time even now 🤣

  21. @Sziget2022_Leaks, maybe you can answer that : since this year it's gonna be 6 days instead of 7 , do you know if more acts are happening ? I've always thought that 4 gigs/day on the main stage isn't much...do you know if they might plan 5 gigs/day ?

  24. But for every negative there is a positive as well so it's a tricky situation. There's a lot more support and communities for people now for example victims of sexual assault can much more easily speak to people who have been through the same as them and can through anonymised accounts feel more comfortable telling their story. I think the trouble is we have created a very complex and difficult world that needs much more international cooperation and nuanced laws but the people making the laws don't even understand the technology.

  26. Just checked and their website has recently been updated. Under their buying process, it says about being able to buy 2 tickets in the first price bracket and then 6 in the next, so yes, seems like they’re following the same plan as previous years!

  28. Epic day back in Leeds - probably the best single day, multi-venue city festival I’ve been to. Every act felt like they were at the top of their game and genuinely thrilled to be there. For some of course this isn’t their first gig back but it certainly felt like many of them were getting in touch with something. Thanks to @sacred shape for recommending Stone, who kicked the day off nicely. Followed that with Courting, Spyres, The Big Moon, Hamish Hawk, Sports Team, Feet and The Murder Capital. Caught the back end of a few other artists who all seemed to smash it too. I noticed that the fest didn’t sell out of general admission tickets, and venues were filled without feeling that it was overwhelming. I think only Oporto and Brudenell had to adopt a one in, one out policy for a few acts. There were a few late withdrawals (Goa Express on the day) but that is understandable. All in all it was a great way to sign off the year, if that indeed ends up being my final live experience.

  30. Ah yeah it’s pretty crazy what they can do. They somehow have this ability to light the room to make it seem like there’s no back wall and it extends for eternity. When I was last there Patrick Topping had a pretty cool fairly simplistic thing where it was just 3 coloured balls that looked like planets, that would periodically bounce the length of the very long screen, it was mesmerising. and lots of stuff like this IMG_5379.MOV

  32. Started looking at flights today. I won't be in a position to book until mid-November at the earliest, but just to get an idea. Frustratingly, SkyScanner incorrectly lists basic tickets as flexible, so you click on the third party agent website and discover the price you thought it was is much higher. Can't wait to book, though. Can't wait to see my family again. There will be tears.

  33. I left Facebook quite a while ago, because it had become so toxic. I've had to cut off friends from twitter, because I find their posts so infuriating (pro-brexit / anti-vax - usually lies). It is so easy to post misinformation, yet requires quite a bit of effort to refute with well-sourced facts. And honestly, life is too short. All joking aside, I think this forum is one of the nicest places on the internet. The vast majority here are able to share differences of opinion without devolving into insults or worse. Let's keep it that way.

  36. Hopefully they turn the camera back on the the start of the build in March, it's always been part of the build up in recent years for me watching the site grow and the fence go up. I think @Ayrshire Chris is right that the BBC control the camera judging by the statement on their website "To respect the privacy of the farm, we’ve switched off the live BBC Glastonbury Webcam for the time being. Instead, you can explore our beautiful archive shots."

  42. I cannot believe there is even debate in this thread. It will definitely be going ahead, apart from if a freak weather event ruins the site in the week before gates. The live music industry is basically back to its pre pandemic state. Green man and end of the road essentially went ahead as normal other than the need to prove a negative test or full vaccination on entry which is very little burden on customers or organisers. People are able to travel overseas with almost no restrictions now. massive events are going ahead fully indoors. Its happening. The govt and society in general have jointly come to the conclusion that life goes on. perhaps most importantly glastonbury needs to happen financially in 2022 or they’ll be in a heck of a pickle.

  43. Can any other venues in the UK can do large screen visuals the way Printworks can (I.e. fairly high concept, Chemical Brothers style productions)?

  44. Having had a PS5 since launch day ( I was one of those that queued up outside Game the morning pre-orders went live), I can say I have had very few Next-Gen experiences. All the games I have played so far have also been available on PS4. There are the likes of Returnal, Rift Apart that are only on PS5 but I haven't been tempted by those. Perhaps the best use I have got from the PS5 is the PS5 patch for Control, as it was really clunky on my Day 1 PS4 but ran so nicely on the PS5 (it may have also run niely on PS4 Pro but not played it on that) . So, in short, I'd say that until a must have game comes out on PS5 then maybe just hold off.
