    Aye, 'tis my understanding. And we have some booze regardless.

    In summary... A band plays live music. Some people think they do it well, others less so. There are questions over whether crowd interaction and the liveliness or otherwise of bands impacts the quality of the gig. And something about Miles Kane. And Woffy's egg sandwiches.

    I know my skillset. If I overreach and start actually discussing music I'll be exposed for the charlatan I am.

    You actually read them? I just skim read and pick out a post to which I can conjour up a vaguely amusing riposte

    Woffy standing like a rock in the crowd with his arms folded and a face like Nora Batty. Not having any of it.

    I know who I'd rather watch. And that's not even in a post-modern ironic way. Cheesy 80s polished nonsense or not, I'd be all over a bit of Ordinary World after a cider or two EDIT: yes, OW was a 90s tune. The principle stands.

    First rugby, now this. You make it harder and harder to like you dude. OK so it was ridiculous bombastic 80s nonsense, but then so was View to a Kill as a film. And if a theme should reflect the movie it's for, it was bang on! Amusingly https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-lists/james-bond-movie-theme-songs-ranked-worst-to-best

    Discovered that at a wedding in France. We weren't allowed to drink it on the second night...

    Whatever I may have said about fitness, I reserve the right to say that rugby is a bloody silly idea. Ouch.

    Love the fact that the stone circle field still has the circle outline from the giant peace sign

    I know. Friday and being pedantic It's not an unreasonable question though tbf. At the time at least there were significant questions asked about all three as I recall. Now whether that's down to a vocal perception of "what people at Glastonbury want" rather than what your Glastonbury audience would actually go and see is another matter altogether. But yeah, I think that there was an element of stepping into the unknown with them, and different questions could have led to different outcomes.

  22. https://www.blacks.co.uk/equipment/025759-eurohike-ribble-3.html I got this for Beautiful Days this year. Currently down to 65 quid online. Nice a roomy without being OTT. Got one big enough on the off chance that Mrs Q and I need a tent, but as fest tent for one it was perfect. Enough porch space for boots etc. The gazebo bit at the front isn't big enough to sit under in a chair, bit it's a nice extra little space. Edit: standing up won't happen, but you'll struggle to find a two person tent that will tbh
  23. Just need to find some WKD blue in plastic bottles...

    That's the bunny. Lovely stuff so it was. Although it is expensive for what you get. More of a once over the weekend treat than daily fare.
  25. Oh jeez, that brings back memories of turboshandies. Half a Hoegaarden topped up with Smirnoff Ice. Come to think of, a bar that does nothing but 90s / 00s student cocktails would be an absolute belter. Turboshandies, Diesels, Cheeky Vimtoes, Green Eyed Monsters. I could lose an entire weekend (again) to that lot
