    Tory Cabinet Thread

    I actually feel sorry for Johnson; all of these treacherous two-faced Tory turncoats stabbing him in the back, and for what? For staying true to the sociopathic, arrogant, incompetent sexist racist values that he's always held. Tory voters getting exactly what they voted for. Suck it.

    Seetha Hallett from one of those channel 4 property shows. Lose the wombat love and you'd get it twice with the same hard on.

    The XBMC thread - What it is, how it works etc...

    It's a stripped down offshoot / fork, optimized for Android, faster and more reliable. My first port of call.

    A load of the apps were taken down a month or so back. I'm using Seren through Kodi and Ezra through Nodi, both with Real Debrid. Working better than ever.

    GF music review club

    Wondering whether any of you cool cats might be up for putting together a small club to share and review music ? Keeping the expense to a minimum, we could use Spotify or Youtube to review free online albums (pm me if you'd like a link to a free Spotify Premium acccount for Android devices). Was thinking of around 10 of us, where 1 person would choose a record of the week to review / comment upon / debate and argue about, a different person choosing weekly. Favourite records, new stuff always good, something topical, anything really. The GF is also really good in so much that there are a load of us with really diverse musical tastes, and it would be interesting to see others' reactions to an album which falls outside of their norm. What say you ? If you fancy giving it a go then let it be known.

    GF music review club

    Review: The Smile - A Light For Attracting Attention [presses play] The Same - really odd percussive bass drum pulses, hypnotic guitar and synths, Thom Yorke just being Thom Yorke, sings "we are all the same". Apt, not a million miles away from latter day Radiohead. The Opposite - nice dry drums and guitars riff, the foot is tapping and the head is nodding, a good sign. Spacey chorus, ends abruptly. You Will Never Work In Television Again - more punky and immediate vibes and vocal. "Their hopes and dreams devoured by his eyes" guys and gals (?). Panavision - haunting piano and vocal gives way to something much more benign. This could have been lifted straight from Amnesiac. Really good. The Smoke - bass and drums lead the way before Yorke takes over with a staccato vocal. The bass line (strangely) has a West Indies flavour but the song ultimately doesn't do much for me. Speech Bubbles conjures Motion Picture Soundtrack without the potency. Thin Thing - down the rabbit hole we go, riding a sequenced guitar and an incredible drum track. Love the segue into the chorus, great punky guitars. Best song yet. Open The Floodgates - "don't bore us, get to the chorus and open the floodgates", haha, great writing. Getting paranoid here. As ever with these guys, a stellar choice of instruments and voices, the mix sounds phenomenal. The song itself? Not so much. Free In The Knowledge - a lovely vocal melody over a simple strummed acoustic guitar. This builds into something much more, the background synths and percussion elevating this into a little cracker. A Hairdryer - interesting title, busy percussive riff but doesn't really go anywhere. Filler. Waving A White Flag - synthy strings build and swell, meeting Thom Yorke in a feature length episode of Stranger Things. Not my favourite. We Don't Know What Tomorrow Brings - killer opening riff conjures Carpenter's brilliant Assault On Precinct 13 soundtrack. More straight ahead rocker and exactly what the album was requiring at this moment. Verse 2 could serve as a warning to Sadio and Mo! Great song, my favourite so far I think. Skrting On The Surface closes this album and is Radiohead 1-0-1, beautiful riff and odd time sigs, haunting vocal, drums dropping in and out. We know it works and it's a very satisfying formula, no less so here. Honestly, why didn't they just call themselves Radiohead here? Probably would've shifted several million more albums just in the strength of the name alone. Really enjoyed this 7.5/10

    I Origins Michael Pitt stars as a scientist who studies eyes and who falls in love with a beautiful mysterious stranger. I love this film. The ending packs an incredible punch. 9/10
