  1. UKIP and their non-racist well informed supporters

    UKIP Exec no confidence vote in Henry Bolton It is believed this could be a straight swap between Watford and UKIP with Bolton seen as a safe pair of hands by the Watford board. Marco Silva, sacked from Watford earlier today confirmed he hasn't recently left his wife and children to shag any racists but was worried his Spanish passport could be a problem. UKIP's national exec have moved to assure him most of them will be buggering off to Spain anyway should Brexit go the full tits up.
  2. The Film Thread

    Star Wars, Star Trek, Batman, Spiderman, Hobbit films, Potter films, Marvel, Disney etc., etc., These are all for children, I would no more choose to voluntarily watch one of these, than buy comics or go and play in a playground. The only time I've ever watched any of them, is when my children have wanted to see them. Guardians of the Galaxy was a perfectly good example of this whole genre. Perfectly good kids movie. I enjoyed it. Just as, a few years ago, I would have enjoyed an episode of In The Night Garden or Peppa Pig. Great for the kids of that target age bracket. About the same level of depth. Do not kid yourself they are clever message movies hidden behind panto. They are just panto. Batman. A kids movie with poor lighting.

  4. What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

    The version on CD that I was playing is a good few minutes longer! Well, we've moved on now to a bit of Faust, It's A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl. I'm picking up a slight vibe here that I need to be changing the CD.

    My missus has just returned home from some hunter gathering. Now, we don't have similar musical taste at the best of times. But she's walked in with me up a ladder (painting) and Rambo Zambo by Kollectiv was booming out. I mean booming. We've had words. Apparently, I have to play something 'nice' not 'migraine inducing shit'.

    intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, chorus and crescendo, fade, slight reprise preferably between 3 minutes and 5 minutes long, one 9 minute album track acceptable if band member has a degree and a silver cloak free your ass, and your mind will follow

    A quick footnote to the Causa Sui stuff posted above. The download code wasn't working. I sent the record label an e-mail saying the download discount isn't working. Jakob, the drummer from the band wrote back saying give me an hour, try again and let me know. It worked. All power to the do it yourself stoner band and own record label tech nerds.

    OK, this is what I'm trying to say. On a site, you have to be responsible to some extent for your safety. I have been on a number of sites where I have unilaterally decided that today, I'm not going in that cherry picker with that driver. Or I've decided I'm not happy with ladders. I'm a big boy and admittedly a bit privileged in my position on sites. Only yesterday, I refused to go in to a basement to inspect steel until lighting was put on the stairs. I decided what was safe for me. I could have decided to accept the risk of the cherry picker on a windy day, I could have decided to 'man up' and use a vertical ladder. Yesterday, to speed up getting it done and getting home, I could have felt my way down a black stairwell. That's my self assessment of my risk. The unacceptable element is hopefully self explanatory. Nothing should put third parties in danger. Me wanting to get home shouldn't leave slates on an edge of a roof etc. What I think I've left 'weird' is it could be read that unsafe sites are somewhat more acceptable for 'the workers'. Absolutely not where I was coming from. An unsafe digger or truck is not acceptable. A clown getting the keys and having a go, that's his dumb arse. An untrained clown being asked to operate a digger is unacceptable. Hopefully that reads better?

    It's one thing for the staff working to be exposed to pointless risk. There is an element of being able to take control and either organise or walk away. It's the stupid unforeseen accident that injures someone else, a third party, that's the totally unacceptable element. Yes, kids working on site don't have the experience, foresight or balls to understand health and safety means not getting life changing injuries. So we need to protect them. But what about the public walking by when tiles get kicked off a poorly constructed scaff with no toeboards? What about the kids on the estate that can climb a poorly erected scaffold? The wife or mum of the guy who's reversed in to by someone dicking about in a mini digger. Etc etc.. Full 5 point ppe and CS cards is a very necessary pain in the arse. PCI docs and H&S visits are a necessary pain in the arse. It stops death and it stops amputations and it stops people being crippled.

    Yes, I think I've heard some of that and liked it. It's a problematic band name though. I think the band you mean, is the USA band from Olympia? I've got a super tenuous link to them. I know a couple of people in Olympia and they know a lot about that band. Then there's the earth that caused your lot to change their name from earth to sabbath. Then there's the earth which is a local 'super group' here made up of ex Peth, ex Catatonia and ex Super Furry's. I've seen them quite a few times, usually in village halls and leisure centres at gigs organised at a week's notice where you all just mingle with the band like some 60's happening. I went to a gig of theirs once and I was literally the only person that had bought my ticket on line. They had a cash box for walk ups, a tin for paper tickets, and an 'internet list' printed out on A4, that only had my name on it. There was no bar, it was an upstairs room in a town hall. So they took some money off a load of people and sent a couple of guys across to the Spar to just buy a varied load of booze and pop and crisps. Obviously the gig was **** awesome.
  11. What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

    There's an album on youtube that I use when I'm working from home and need to get all the admin crap out of my brain and just concentrate on a single task for a few hours. I can, crudely explained, use this album to block out all those activity displacements and incoming calls and e-mails. With the little bit of my brain left free, I can then knock out a half decent scheme or design or whatever it is I need to actually concentrate on. I think I've posted this one up 2 or 3 times over the years.
  12. What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

    I may have mentioned this before, I am a fan of the repetition. So some of this stoner / psych type stuff (that might not be the genre, I don't know) is right up my alley. It can be hypnotic if done right, I've gone to a few little backroom local gigs where some guy has a tape machine and a couple of loop pedals and I'm away. I think I get a form of high off it. Well, there's no 'think', I do. I've been to quite a few where I've felt pissed, but haven't had anything. Saw a band in Bristol about a year ago and I'd have sworn I'd been spiked, but hadn't even had a water. The old Super Furry gigs where they'd leave the stage and just have an extended version of something left playing for 10 minutes whilst they recharge, I'd be off with the fairies.

    I just hope @Xann wasn't trying to tell us they're kiddie fiddlers download £10 vinyl and download, £14 so as far as I'm concerned, it cost me four
