Splendid stuff.  I've nearly been in my new job long enough to call out my boss next time he uses any of the following (all been heard already):

Open the kimono

Brown bag meeting

Low hanging fruit

I give it another week or so and I can point out the error of his ways.

Ban "low hanging fruit" and you'll just get hit by "easy wins".

We really need to take this offline and touch base Quark.

We'll diarise a thought shower, maybe see what we can rack up in the trophy cabinet.

God help us all.

All hail The Thingy! I reckon it should be upgraded to The Mighty Thingy....anyway, judging by the history we most likely have to wait until February before anything of significance.

I can't see Foos holding off that long, unless they are going to play another UK date. I'd be surprised if the drip feeding of festivals comes to a stop without either Glastonbury or their own UK stadium show. Arcade Fire is the only previous December announcement though, and if I remember correctly, that was because there was a leaked photo of a white board that had all their dates on?

Of course, anything could happen. #ThereIsNoPattern

Superb work on the thingy by the way - it's a thing of beauty!

Not a leak, I don't think. They just announced all their dates at once via a picture they posted online. iirc the shows were written using scrabble letters.

I bet when you created the website you never in your wildest dreams expected to be essentially rubbing shoulders with Glastonbury's elite? Just promise us it won't change you...

No. I'd tweeted that it was on this day in 2011 that Rastamouse was confirmed, that was his response. Of course, it's been a while, longer that Coldplay, he could be back.
