    The most smashed you’ve ever been?😳 (At the festival.)

    Still one of the all time classic nights at Glastonbury that night. Started with a storm, every mother fucker in the place shuffled down to the SE corner without any of the safety measures in place and it was just a great mood among the crowd. Couple of nights later I've got about 6 lost hours from a blackout that ended up with me stood outside my tent with no idea how I'd got there, soaked to the skin with no idea why. I'd drunk a bottle of rum and washed down some delicacies from the herbal high stalls that were absolutely everywhere that year. I was at Kasabian when I necked the rum and sheep dip pills, it has remained a blank ever since, apart from 3 tiny slivers of memory that are like a second long from what I assume was the first couple of hours. What I learned from this is that you shouldn't take sheep pills with neat rum, probably best to employ a mixer.

    The "I'm Going to Glastonbury 2019" thread

    I think people should understand that it is a matter of the extreme demand. If they had capacity enough to not have the overloaded queuing system then people would complain that it sold out in 3 minutes. Whatever solution they try to selling tickets won't change the fact that there are many more people trying to get them than are available, the same number of people will walk away disappointed regardless.

    Films

    I buggered up my back earlier in the week (spasms leaving me screaming with pain, never known the likes of it) and had to miss out on my Midnight showing tickets for Star wars, just got back from finally seeing it having hidden from the internet all week. Really surprised to read here that some hated it, I was grinning from ear to ear throughout. I'd just mention that I also loved TFA and still do. They've made the new trilogy into Ron and Hermione in space and I couldn't give 2 fucks, loving every minute. Obviously I can understand that not everyone is going to share my taste but it's like they are making these sequels for me personally because all the things that everyone complain about are things that frankly don't concern me at all. All the things that were suggested for how the plot was going to which could have been terrible ideas have thankfully not turned out to be even close and what we got looks fantastic for the finale (in my opinion, obviously). Going to watch the Kermode vid above now, see what he made of it, I almost always agree with his take on films, be interesting to hear if he hated it

    Things that ur happy about

    Was a really good colour here in the midlands, deep red sun and orangey pink clouds with a sort of surreal, unearthly feel about the lighting it cast.

    Things that ur happy about

    The eerie pink glow of a martian morning out there today makes me happy. I got up late to facebook posts of red suns and the view out front does not disappoint. It's my day off and I'd had a wake and bake breakfast of coffee and a reefer before opening the curtains to the view, lovely stuff.

    Murder at Bestival

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-41227732 It has been widely reported by a number of sources that the arrest was for suspicion of murder.
  9. Certainly vies for the best thing I've seen on the farm. An absolutely magical performance I felt privileged to see. I regularly play the iplayer footage still. That top 50 list posted earlier in the thread has some corkers in there, Red Snapper are a band well worth checking out.

    I suspect the reason for his disquiet has yet to be revealed. You have to wonder what was said, what was agreed which convinced Cersei to return to the talks. I think he has agreed something that this would upset such as a joining of houses through marriage after the war, which would be the kind of thing Tywin would have done and has also been foreshadowed frequently (conversation with Daario, conversation about the succession at Dragonstone). My money says he had agreed to marry her off to Jaime (with Cersei fulfilling her promise to Euron) or even himself. Even if she never intended to keep any agreement at the talks she would at least have given him reason to believe that she would.

    Will wait to discuss details, but having watched the finale all I can say is what a belter.

    Hail Eris! I'm glad it's really happening, hope they make a few quid and fuck off again with no explanation. I've never been sure whether they are taking the piss or it is some sort of long form surrealist art piece, either way it works.

    Game of Thrones discussion thread

    I don't think it was the last giant (wuntun or something like that was his name) as they would have burned the bodies under Jon Snow's command, just a giant that has fallen in the skirmishes before, not to mention that he died at Winterfell and the army is coming from North of there. I do expect there to be a dead hodor in amongst the army of the dead though.

    I don't know what copy you watched but a perfect 1080p is available. My son and I were discussing it and we reckon that for the last 2 seasons once they ran out of book source they've just plundered reddit and built the scripts out of what everyone has said they want to happen. The episode itself doesn't waste a moment, as far as I'm concerned. Delivers a ton of fan service, loads of great visuals and effects without leaving out the quality dialogue that has always been one of the strengths. If you watch the leak (do so!) or wait til it airs you're going to love every minute, I reckon. It was my day off work and my son was able to finish early when he heard it leaked, was nice to be able to sit down together and enjoy it.
