  1. Isn't it because he was German and the rest are Belgian or Dutch? And the van in Beethoven's name isn't capitalised and the others are, which leads me to think that the Dutch / Belgian Van's are part of the Surname and the German Beethoven van isn't part of his surname. It's not something I've ever thought about or researched before your post so I could be entirely wrong Ludwig van Beethoven, was of Flemish descent (his grandfather was Lodewijk van Beethoven), despite his German birth. I suspect that it's the peculiar treatment of the cognate von in German (reserved for nobility an
  2. I just had a pint in the pub (Moorhouses Pendle Witches Brew) then Large Cod, Chips and Gravy from the local chippie. I am now happy (and full).
  3. Very interesting times at the moment. Prince Andrew's involvement with convicted child abusers Prince Philip looks to be on his last legs Prince Harry trying to opt out of the family business and having showdown talks today with the boss.
  4. i will start at the moment i am playing saints 2 (i know i am behind in the series) what a game so much to do i think i will be on it for years. some strange things on it like covering buildings in shite and a camera show? none the less good fun what game you currently on?
  5. I was one of the lucky Villa fans to get to chat with Shaun Teale and Bryan Small yesterday on ‘Chat to a Legend’. it was really fun, worth it in the end and such a great laugh! There was about 16 of us on the Zoom Call and personally it was great! I recommend doing it if you haven’t done it. Keep an eye out on the Villa site to see who’s coming up next. It’s exclusive on Pride Rewards to Season Ticket holders and Members it says.
  6. Is he as big a canut as he appears to be from what I've read and heard/seen? Videos of himself playing guitar etc. Got his own blog under a pseudnym where he posts completely inane drivel which he thinks is profound. Rows with his missus which end up with the coppers being called. Seems he's done the teaching profession a favour, anway, as that's his last job in that line of work. Will also be spending some time at Her Majesty's Pleasure, When/If he comes back ... I have no idea, I don't know him, just her (his cousin)
  7. Pagoda Park, that takes me back. The Powerhouse (became the Ritzy I think) then Wobble and the one by the Market open until 6am, Tin Tins?
  8. OK peeps, by popular request, I've started this retro gaming thread. No rules other than to reminisce and maybe lay out in as much detail as you want to what exactly your gaming history is, what your favourites are/were. Do you still play them? Online, retro machines, emulators etc. Anything goes, so have at it. My CV ! Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K+ (+ as in not the rubber button one), Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128K+2 Commodore Amiga 500 various PCs including a Blue Lightning BLX75 (oooh), a Playstatio
  9. Following the success of Bedlam on Channel 4, I thought it would be interesting to get people's perspectives on mental health problems, particularly as at any given point 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in their lifetimes. FWIW I have not experienced a mental health problem but I work in the field and find the stigma to be the worst thing, particularly in terms of stopping people looking for support
  10. Does anyone think Jack Woodward has always been a great commentator at Villa? I honestly like listening to him although I haven't so far this season as we've been on TV. I like the way he shows his passion for Villa on and off the mic, particularly when he was commentating on the Watford game last season (2-1 win) when Konsa/Mings goal went in and Woodward went ballistic. I am just asking for opinions as I thought I'd create this subject.
  11. A thread to put your examples of modern football being rubbish. I'm expecting this to be at 1000 pages by the end of the season. I'll start. This is the Madrid derby tonight, at Atletico's new Wanda Metropolitano stadium. Firstly the stadium name is horrible because of the sponsor, but we're kind of used to that nonsense now. But look at the advertising boards. Seemingly it's a system called "Chroma" that shows different advertising boards on TV than in the stadium based on your location. Image watching Villa v Small Heath on telly and seeing "'Arry's Tax Consultants" runnin
  12. Having gone a bit off topic in the Gravy Food thread I thought I would start this for a bit of nostalgia. Post your memories, clubs you would to etc. I will. Kick off with my vintage list and ask for help in naming a forgotten one: Boogies (later Orleans) , Millionaires, Faces, Bonkers, The Powerhouse (yes then Ritzy), Peppermint Place, Bobby Brown's Later on The Sanctuary in Digbeth, Snobs and The Ship Ashore before honourable retirement. I used to go many times to the place on 5 Ways Island next to Faces which I am shocked I have forgotten the name of. Can anyone help

    Hobbies

    Inspired by @mjmooney not 'getting' Lego in an Airfix world, what are your hobbys? Obviously we have a fair few gymhounds here and the odd musician, and I guess technically the gaming forum is dedicated to a hobby, but it's there anything else you do for the sheer enjoyment of it (fnarr)? Or is life too short? Over the last couple of years I've become a bit of a modeller. Specifically Gundam models. Perhaps a bit odd given my long standing dislike of anime, and the fact I've barely watched any of the many, many (...many) Gundam series there's been over the years, but I like the desig

    Weather...

    I did look for a topic but couldn't see one.. Nayson last night posted about the Portsmouth football match being cancelled - here I was stuck slap bang in the middle of it - for some of the loudest and brightest storms I have ever been, The flat where I live was shaking at some points! Anyway, I managed to grab a few clips on my mobile, but also wanted to see what the weather is like where you guys are? (Strange one this because it was originally a football question and I also wanted to mention that the local team (Newport IW) carried on playing last night - http://www.iwradio.co.
  15. To save the discussion getting caught up elsewhere... Trans causes are becoming more known about and more relevant with it. Of course it's brought with it a pushback - infamously from JK Rowling setting her legacy on fire to add like this ...which has lead to a few other voices being raised in dissent. Like this And of course Graham Linehan has basically ruined his life in the 'debate'.
  16. It came up in another thread but probably deserves it's own thread... How safe do you find Birmingham? Is it a nice place? Is it better or worse than it used to be? This isn't tied to the events of the weekend but a general view on the atmosphere, people and how safe you feel. Is it better or worse than other major cities? Personally, in the ten odd years I've lived in the area and the 30 odd years I've been visiting the area I've been impressed with the improvements to the area aesthetically and the variety of restaurants and shops etc. On the flip side, I feel less safe at night th
  17. Really just a place to drop the occasional polling graphic or whatever to cover the SNP, or Irish Unification or Mebyon Kernow. SNP now appear to be polling above 50% even with the don’t knows removed from the stats. You’re in a potentially tricky place when you’re telling the majority that they can’t have a democratic vote. (apologies if a version of this thread already exists, I’ve lost it if it does)
  18. We already seem to be getting baubles deep in the season. Kevin the carrot is in mild peril and the new John Lewis ad has disappointed. As @lapal_fan said last year..... In case you want to talk about Christmas for some reason.
  19. The last couple of years has seen a real comeback for fighting games. We've had a new Street Fighter (and a revision), Netherrealm has given us a really good DC Comics fighter with Injustice 2, Tekken 7 was very well received, we got a new Mahvel, which bombed commercially but was actually considered quite good by the community I understand, today Dragon Ball Fighter Z (or Fighterz, which is stupid) comes out and so far word on that has been excellent (and it's gorgeous). Looking forward, there's a new Soul Calibur coming, and you'd get short odds on a new Mortal Kombat being announced at E3.
  20. What Off Topic so clearly needs is a thread devoted to stuff other people do, or wear, or eat, or enjoy, etc. that you think is bonkers. Kindof like a Religion thread, except including (but not limited to) all human activity in every possible field of human endeavour. People who don't think it's bonkers can then explain why it isn't, in fact, bonkers after all. I'll start, with a fairly trivial example: Sportswear. Why do people pay for branded t-shirts (etc.) made of plastic fibres that look crap and get smelly very quickly because of the plastic. Why not wear a nice c
  21. Me and the wife have just jotted down our bucket lists. It was actually really fun and we had a laugh doing it. We only live once right? (ex bhuddists not inc.) Is there stuff you want to do while you're in good health, stuff you probably won't do, but like the thought of? Here's mine (so you can laugh at it! ) 1. Scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef 2. Do a skydive 3. Take a plane flying lesson 4. Drive route 66 5. Drive around Europe 6. Visit Machu Picchu 7. Visit Taj Mahal 8. See the Pyramids 9. Walk along the Great Wall of China 10. Visit the Christ the Redeemer (R

    Memory Lane

    What are some of your more vivid memories over the years? I was just remembering how as kids, we used to order butterfly knives and throwing stars from this massive catalogue of cheesy 80's "Ninja" gear. We were obsessed.
  23. I'm off to get my first Jab on Friday. going to the Theatre....The Theatre of Dreams. Whilst, I feel relieved to get it, also feel quite privileged to get it from the place I love, Villa Park.....Home from Home ,so to speak. Ps according to the letter, I think they are quite pleased to have it as a centre.....perhaps they are not used to seeing people lately.lol
