    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Solid, her voice has got better live if anything and the new material has grown on me. Wouldn't rate it up there, with top gigs, but then Mrs Q really isn't one for getting in the middle of the crowd so we were outside the atmosphere a bit. If you like their stuff then you'd like them live is probably a safe description. Missed Let's Eat Grandma due to her tardiness though

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Saw them on the Other in '16 and they're good fun live. I know the new album hasn't gone down that well but I really like it. She'd better rock up soon, all I've got to do to keep me occupied is drink!

    In a bit of a dilemma, need your advice!

    And you came here?!

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    'sup players? Happy new year (operating on Chinese lunar calendar this year). Currently sat outside Alexandra Palace nursing a beer. Tix with Mrs Q to see Chvrches and shit means she's running proper late. Security wouldn't let me in and then back out to meet her for the walk up to the station. So instead I sit here on my tod, missing Let's Eat Grandma. They'd better play thebloody farm I tell 'ee. Will read back and catch up a bit, hope y'all be well

    Who knew about the Leaderboard?

    Not to worry, I live. Indeed. Spat my beer across the room reading that.

    *****Paul McCartney*****

    I've given it a few runs, and while it's not bad it's really not exciting me either.

    *****Paul McCartney*****

    I most certainly did not land gently. So back to your Beatles theory. Is the indexing based on songwriting, musicianship or what? If it's songwriting then probably fair enough, but musically I'd think of George as more than a 0.5 JPE.

    *****Paul McCartney*****

    Nothing I like more than utter insanity built out of fully logical components. This is on the same basis as my "Brownian Theory of Human Motion" that I cobbled together one afternoon sat in a bar on campus as student. Can't remember the full details, but it worked along the lines of x being the number of students on campus, y being the number of people coming through the door on a 15 minute period, and z being the number of people I knew well enough to join me for a beer. Based on that I worked out how long it would take for someone to join me at the bar so I wouldn't be drinking alone. 5 hours later and with nary a fellow drinker to be seen, I fell off my stool and was escorted from the premises.

    Lawks! It's only the 2019 Next Announcement Thread!

    I do have something of a track record for being a bit of a bastard

    I'd prefer it the other way round. Would rather get the TBCs firmed up and at least keep an element of uncertainty over the headliners for a bit longer, drag out the surprise!

    2hr training slog out on the downs today in beautiful horizontal sleet. That's the last of the training hikes done before January, now just ticking over fitness until the event!

    Glad things are settling down a bit dude, been a shitty few months for you and no mistake. Speedy recovery from the shoulder op, just try not to get smashed and fall over on it eh?

    2019 Headliners

    Familiarity breeds contempt. It's been overplayed and overheard so much over the years, but it's at that level for a very good reason.
  15. That picture's a bit out of date. Spider plant's doing just fine.

    Read that as beer crawl at first. Brutal combination! Working from home this afternoon so no decent excuse not to get out and get some miles under my belt before I have to go and pick Mrs Q up from the station...

    Albums of the Year 2018

    Right, decision made. Rolling Blackouts is my AOTY. An album I've listened to repeatedly and enjoyed every time. No songs on there I want to skip. Scrolling through stuff to listen to it's one I always hover over, never just completely bypass. Also sounded great live. Done. 1. Hope Downs - Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever 2. Future Me Hates Me - The Beths 3. Illusion of Perfection - Spencer Brown 4. Honey - Robyn 5. Build A Tower - The Slow Readers Club
