  1. Yeah, I watched them both and enjoyed them. Both seasons had a good cast, plenty of surprises and got pretty good reviews. I see plenty of other action/crime/drama stuff which are lacking those elements 😊
  2. I think after the first couple was when more happened, then she went overseas and learnt about Partition and her family history which I enjoyed - but I am often easy to please. I watch quite a few kids animated movies, some of which are awful and unimaginative. By comparison I thought this avoided the typical stereotypes about an Asian girl and her relationship with parents etc and tbh for those reasons I'm just glad they're spending their dosh broadening their repertoire a bit, as they are with a few films.
  3. I enjoyed it tbh, but then I knew what I was getting. It was beautiful to look at, featured some great tunes, used innovative ways of showing socials and represented culture and history to a global audience (but importantly including the states) that they simply haven't seen before. So many films and shows that have had the temerity to feature a female or non white character you can go on imdb and see page after page of whinging 1 star reviews. **** those guys 😊
  4. A bunch of those I watched recently, some older some new and some I loved more than others... Only Murders in the Building, Catastrophe, Daredevil (just season 1 so far), Pieces of Her, The Old Man, Big Boys, High Maintenance, Ms Marvel, Slow Horses, Obi Wan, Flight Attendant, Why Didn't They Ask Evans, Ten Percent, Our Flag Means Death, Killing It, Witchfinder, Peacemaker, Reacher, Woman in the House Across the Street, Mandy, The Tourist.
  5. Poor me, ignorant bumpkin 😉 Didn't know that at all. I do remember in his hey day being somewhere overseas and someone played one of his new albums (maybe bad) and it was very well received - only exceeded by Bob Marley in terms of universal appeal as I recall.
  6. Ah, once I got past my twenties and thirties I realised I was in danger of being one of those folks who only ever listens to music from their heyday and that was one of the factors in me switching to 6music, so I try to avoid anything too focused on a particular decade. I do know they have their tributes such as the recent ones to 80s,90s etc, but for the most part the mix of old and new suits me and they never play MJ. There's always a selection of new stuff passing by my ears without me having to make too much effort plus that helped of course when I went to the next Glastonbury as I may have actually heard of some bands (plus the BSR playlist obviously).
  7. Wow do they? Ironically I had ditched Spotify for tidal for a couple of reasons, but not least that the ceo seemed to be a nob. https://www.digitalmusicnews.com/2021/11/10/daniel-ek-helsing-investment/
  8. Have they? I couldn't tell you the last time I heard anyone on TV or radio play anything by him, a long time especially given his massive sales previously.
  9. Eh? There's a lot there which simply doesn't compute. Who is saying that that they never liked a band's music? Plus the other weird gaslighting aspect you've suggested about being a coward or having something to hide for deciding they no longer want to listen to an artist. If a performer has revealed that they're a **** in one way or another, then it's fair enough that someone can choose to do what they want and listen or not - indeed it's the purpose of this thread isn't it?
  10. You're right. His art is not as separate from his obnoxious views as some have suggested... I used to love their stuff and plenty of his solo stuff, but long since deleted it from playlists - wouldn't want the pr**k profiting. https://freedomnews.org.uk/2019/08/04/morrissey-isnt-senile-hes-always-been-a-racist/
  11. Hey if they won't ensure that their bill is fair, then I'm certainly not gonna attempt to be fair about the bill.
  12. Very true, it's shameful. In light of what @Neil said about the low conviction rates for some dreadful crimes, even if they are convicted the sentence can be quite out of kilter. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/government-accused-putting-slave-trader-23731796
  13. If they catch you these days they really throw the book at you. They had some at bridewell who got sentences of several years for hitting a shield or spitting. https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/news/bristol-news/bristol-kill-bill-rioters-jailed-6768971
  14. My experience was similar, but I'm lazier so avoided same as you but also didn't try to get over for wet leg (had been fortunate to see very recently) and pretty far back for Diana - who i also thought was not as packed as some previous Sunday slots.
  15. So the Stanley Donwood T shirt next year could be a bit more erm radical? Plus the flag flying over the Pyramid obviously. vomits into mouth
  16. Hey I was certainly not doubting the source material 😉 I'm surprised they followed Green on Red, so they must have been doing OK for themselves. Yes, I too vaguely remember it being in a different place and certainly different angle. Nobody in the audience was discussing the acoustics or sound bleed - they were too broken 😊
  17. In 1985 I was hitching a lift from Wells to college and got a lift by a young woman driving a 2CV. I was going to say she was called Heff and played sax in a band called Toxic Shock who mentioned they were playing at Glastonbury that year, but just did a quick search and found a page all about them - https://punkgirldiaries.com/toxic-shock-heff-and-al/ For a teenage loser like me it was pretty exciting being able to go to the festival and see them play. According to this dodgy place it was on the enigmatically named "Second Stage" https://ukrockfestivals.com/glastonbury-festival-1985.html
  18. Yes, or a lot of time spent drunkenly talking boll*cks around the camp fire 😊 I know what you mean about the festival of old, but I'm not one to pine for it nostalgically. That was the festival of the day and it wouldn't exist in the UK as it is today - whether due to the changes the festival had to make, or the licensing controls or simply because some of those communities changed - whether through their own choice or not.
  19. On the 50th anniversary show someone referred to the folks that were here at the time. I can't remember how they put it, but I think they said that in that society - as in all societies, there were a small proportion who had only their own interests at heart. I just don't want anyone who wasn't there before the fence to think that everyone was a kindly weirdo, hippy, punk, whatever - the vast majority were, but (as I'm sure is true today), there were a few b*st*rds too 😉
  20. Yes, my sis heard it offered in 85/86. I don't doubt it would have been rarer/more discreet than other things.
  21. Very much the same. If it hadn't changed it wouldn't exist - so the millions donated to charity wouldn't have happened, aside from all those hundreds of thousands/millions who've attended and had a brilliant time in the intervening years.
  22. He he, it's a funny phenomenon isn't it? Of course the sad thing is that since most of us have experienced the tension of not getting tickets in one or more of the sales, that (if you're a selfish git like me) that also lowers ones inclination to offer great assistance to get those folks in. I'm certainly more than happy to share tips, information and encouragement - but in the past there were plenty of times that I'd spend time doing the purchasing on behalf of people. The combination of firstly risking my own attendance and secondly realising that folks were quite happy to sit back and let you do it without any effort on their own behalf put me off to a fair degree 😉

  24. Well done for making the best of a challenging situation 🙂
