  1. Not sure if it has actually been confirmed anywhere but I think the consensus seems to be that October will only be deposits again
  2. Yea Kid A the only genuine 2000's album (there is a Muddy Water's compilation that came out in 2001 but obviously that's a bit different!). Quite a good list if, like me, you don't have a broad listening history of those eras. I've listened to a lot of The Beatles, The Who, Bob Dylan, etc but had never listened to an album by some huge names like Prince, Led Zeppelin, etc. Found some 'hidden gems' too like Dusty in Memphis (as it is in this list it obviously isn't very hidden but an album I would likely have never come across otherwise). Once I'm finished I'll probably try and find a Top 100 albums of the 2000s so far or something. I know Rolling Stone has a Top 100 between 2000 and 2009 but I'd prefer a Top 100 (or even 50) of albums between 2000-2020. Maybe this: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/sep/13/100-best-albums-of-the-21st-century
  3. Correct! Made a spreadsheet with the album name, artist, year of release, notes, favourite song, score (100) and ranking (based on my score) so just filling it in as I go and the rankings update when a new score is input. Album 78 (Otis Blue - Otis Redding) is actually tied with Axis: Bold as Love as the highest score I've given out. Another great album. The lowest ranked album (based on my album score) so far is The Wall - Pink Floyd. Just couldn't get into it at all.
  4. Hopefully some good news from the Oxford vaccine: 'Right response' seen in vaccine trials The right sort of immune response has been seen in trials for a potential Covid-19 vaccine at the University of Oxford, a parliamentary hearing has been told. The trials have now entered the Phase III clinical stage. Sarah Gilibert, professor of vaccinology at the university, told the government committee that the trial had enrolled 8,000 volunteers for the next stage. She could not give a timeline for when the vaccine - which was licensed to AstraZeneca - might be ready, as it depends on the results of the trial.
  5. Been working my way through Rolling Stone's Top 100 albums recently - started at 100 and next up is number 77. Best album so far is Axis: Bold as Love - Jimi Hendrix Experience
  6. Deaths just don't seem to be dropping in England. Case numbers still high. Unsure on the situation in Wales but Scotland seem to have a good grip on the situation. NI has always had an advantage of being smaller and further separated but seems to be doing very well - just 13 people in hospital at the minute in Northern Ireland. 1 positive case (across both pillars) having tested nearly 1,500 people yesterday.
  7. Most of your questions are being discussed elsewhere: The interview: Coronavirus:
  8. Meetings of up to 30 people now allowed outdoors in NI, another step in the right direction.

    Watched LDR this morning and following it up with Florence and the Machine. Obviously wasn't at either! I didn't think LDR's was that bad - Florence and the Machine's set has been great so far (half way through).
  10. Kendrick Lamar 46 Diana Ross 30 (+10)

    Finished watching the full Laura Marling set and it was great. Decided on Hozier next.
  12. Not feasible sadly if you are coming from overseas or if you don't drive!
  13. Just 1 person in ICU in NI now - hopefully not too far from the day where we have 0 in ICU. 29 in hospital which is the first time I have seen it below 30 since looking and likely the first time since lockdown.

    I think two are the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen. I'd magine the third is Paul McCartney.
