  1. Critics (and I think a lot of eFesters too) seem to really love that Floating Points album. I keep thinking I'll give it another listen as I must be missing something, but everytime I end up disappointed. Just feel like there is not much going on, to me it's like very boring background music that's designed to be played in a wine bar. Am I the only one that doesn't get it? Seems to get universal praise.

  3. Loving Wet Legs 2 singles. Glad to see them so high up the list and can't wait till they have more music available. Self Esteem album is brilliant so happy to see her take top spot too.
  4. I agree, a democracy should have checks and balances. In a world where Trump and Hitler can get elected you need a safe guard against populists.

  6. She'd point at things like Universal Credit and say it doesn't provide the safety net that it should and far too many people slip through without getting the support they deserve. Which to be honest I'd agree with, but the Scottish parliament has been offered some of these powers and postponed taking them as they couldn't get organised in time. It's actually scary how many powers the Scottish parliament potentially has and don't use. SNP obviously find it much easier to sit on their hands and blame "Westmonster" rather than actually do anything. It's a shame as a lot of the things Sturgeon says about the society she wants to build are good in principal, but sadly she's all soundbites and no action. Pretty much everything the SNP has touched has got worse and most of their voters are so idealogically driven they will continue to vote for them no matter how much a mess they make of things

  8. have you meant to take 10 points of Anna Mae's Mac N Cheese as if you have think they should be at 19. Blutarsky also voted them down just before you, think you may have missed his vote and they should be at 19 now?
  9. Honestly having canvassed for a political party in Scotland the only doors where I encountered angry aggressive people were SNP supporters. It was a real eye opener and turned me against independence (I'd been a bit on the fence before). Neil is write to say the term "civic nationalism" doesn't capture the entire reality. Just like there was an increase in racist hatred due to Brexit, I know people born in England who have made Scotland there home who received abuse and were made to feel unwelcome during the Scottish referendum. I've seen friends call friends traitors and accuse them of being English apologists because they voted no. Nationalism does not bring the best out in people. I will concede that Nicola Sturgeon normally frames her arguments against Conservative policy and then make the case that Scotland never voted for the Conservatives and sells the idea of a different vision for Scotland. When she directs hate it's at Westminster and the Conservatives rather than the English. And there are definitely a lot of middle class open minded people that buy this vision and support independence without hating the English. But you are completely deluded if you don't recognise that a large section of SNPs supporters hate the English and the party at best turn a blind eye to it. It's a bit like you didn't have to be racist to vote for Brexit, but plenty of racists did vote for it and the Brexiteers very much encouraged that vote even if they tried to hide behind a mask of respectability and didn't outright say racist things.
  10. part of the reason they took that approach in the EU referendum was because it had worked well in Scotland. Though they did have to make some very large promises on the eve of Indy ref to swing the vote in no's favour (and immediately introducing Evel straight after making those promises left a bad taste in many peoples mouths) which maybe was a sign it wasn't the great campaign strategy they though it was. The other big difference between the 2 referendums were SNP came up with a fairly precise plan about how independence would work (some of it was unrealistic based on ridiculous oil projections and an assumption rUK would let us continue using the pound), but they did outline in detail what they thought independence would mean. The Brexiteers were quite clever/dishonest in having multiple campaigns making conflicting promises so Brexit meant whatever you wanted it to mean.
  11. In principle I agree with you, but there is a large crossover in Scotland's unionist vote and the Scots that voted for Brexit (despite Sturgeon using "Scotland being taken out of the EU against its will" as an excuse for another referendum). Ultimately Brexit and Scottish Independence are both about nationalism, and when it comes to nationalism it's always very emotion driven rather than logically driven (and never nice feel good emotions either, just angry hateful people).
  12. Like Brexit I think many people will make an emotional decision that might not be rational or logical. Like Brexit the split seems to be roughly 50/50 which means whatever happens there will be a divided country. I don't think independence is a good idea, but the status quo seems broken. Scotland is basically become a one issue country when it comes to elections. Except the unionist vote is split between parties whilst all independence supporters vote SNP (and Scottish Greens 2nd vote for Scottish elections). The SNP have no interest in working with the UK government and will never make be part of a UK government either. They also are quite happy to have a scorched earth policy where they make everything worse, but blame it on Westminster to garner more support for independence. Something needs to change as status quo doesn't seem sustainable
  13. I think I might start a thread to see if we can get Sextina Aquafina headlining with her touching song about abortion

  17. Some of the people that died were unconscious 15 minutes into the show! I knew they'd carried on when it looked like they should have stopped the show, but didn't realise it had gone wrong that quickly. The fact that in 3 hours nobody in a position of power thought maybe we should stop this is really shocking. I was annoyed that in September I was at what I thought was a poorly organised festival where half the acts didn't turn up & it was impossible to get a drink as the bars were chronically understaffed. But reading about Astroworld has made me appreciate how dangerous an actually poorly organised festival can be. I suppose at any large event we're really putting our lives in organisers hands presuming they are competent at crowd management. When you stop to think about it, it's scary what you take for granted
  18. Personally I think Evanescence and Babymetal both do the pop/metal thing much better than her.
