    Velvet Underground

    Just been revisiting White Light/White Heat and the third album as I bought the 45th anniversary re-releases with extras. I had forgotten how immense Sister Ray is. A 17-minute atonal exploration of prostitution, sexual deviancy, murder and drug addiction, repeated and repeated over a growing and churning dirge. And yet a thing of power and beauty. Temptation Inside Your Heart and the early recording of Beginning To See The Light (is that a tuba I hear....?!) amongst the extras on White Light/White Heat are worth the admission price alone. Obviously the third album when little Doug came on board is much more accessible. Crammed full of classics. Jesus, Pale Blue Eyes, What Goes On...ah, ALL of them. I love The Velvet Underground. I've seen Lou Reed a couple of times, and I saw Velvet Underground at Glastonbury (95?) when Cale sang All Tomorrow's Parties - incredible. They deserve their own thread on this forum.

    The Who at Woodstock

    Was there a better performance at any of those big 60s/70s festivals? They were a band at the absolute top of their game. They sounded fantastic even through that fart-box of a sound system, and they looked great. Daltry looks and sounds incredible. And Townshend is terrifying (ask Abbie Hoffman). [YOUTUBE]30ktWPrWPDc&feature=related[/YOUTUBE] They went on stage at 5am and played as the sun rose. I read somewhere else that they had been spiked - the catering was sprinkled with LSD. Not sure if this is true.

    Virgil Van Dijk

    Idiot. I like you as a poster, but that casual label is disgraceful. Have a think.

    Lib Dems

    Followed Jeremy Thorpe into the leadership. Really cleaned things up.
  6. It was a lighthearted comment about you being "normal", Grinch. Ne'er mind.

    The shitness of modern football

    Nah - it's a cultural thing. Acceptable in Germany as a foreign song. We very nearly had Live is Life as a chant for goodness sake. As Aventus says, proper fans them.

    Sadio Mane

    He is also hard as nails.
  9. I was banned from the official Jon Bon Jovi fan website after one visit. And all I did was tell it like it is.

    The quick inter-cutting with the arm amputation must really send you over the edge...

    Loris Karius

    Time and distance can give a person a greater sense of perspective. I am still firm in my deep hatred of Loris Karius.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    Haha - just picturing the ref intensely blowing his whistle when Rashford goes down and racing over with a cool flannel for his forehead. "You ok, little man? Medic! Medic! This lad needs a lollipop! Only kidding, Marcus. Here's one I hid up my sleeve just for you..."

    VAR Thoughts?

    If this article is anything to go by, the team that will supposedly benefit the most from VAR is Liverpool. https://www.forbes.com/sites/stevemccaskill/2018/08/07/data-analytics-proves-manchester-united-is-the-luckiest-team-in-the-premier-league/#6bbe41232ee1 But the truth is, VAR is rubbish. This "We've got the technology, let's use it to get it right" is a joke. You can't "get it right". As has been said, it is all subjective. Factors which play a part in referees' decision-making are many, including occasion and participants (nobody can convince me that big teams don't get advantage). Bring in VAR and the same factors are at play. Plus, players will change their game, and will know exactly how to exploit the technology in order to gain an advantage. I say gib it off. In 10 years' time an algorithm will make all the decisions, and that will annoy everybody. That said, I wouldn't only take AI over Lee Mason, I'd take a rusty tamagotchi that some kid threw on the pitch. With flat batteries.

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Yes but this comeback hasn't got an unexpected twist...

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    He took a long time to come good at Liverpool. He will take a long time to come good after his injury. Shame, as a "long time" is something we ain't got!

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    It's funny because it's true, as Homer would say. I'd like to see a "number of posts by poster" for this thread. I'd bet the number dwarfs that in the one about the person he voted for, that's for sure.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    But what about Corbyn signing it?

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Sir Peter Bottomly accidentally signing into the wrong window there. His vacant PornHub account must have had a day off.
