    What? The Smiths, new order, the jam and the Beatles all had great non album songs. I can't be arsed listing them though.

    Great standalone singles

    New Order and The Smiths clean up here. Fittingly, Electronic had two cracking non-album songs - Getting away with it and Disappointed. And The Jam and The Beatles, of course. Both already mentioned above. Christ, this country has produced some great bands.

    Shit songs by great bands...

    Batdance or Going Loco are not shit songs. I mean, there's an argument for Going Loco being the greatest song ever, so...

    The Shield

    I'm only in episode 4 and it's better than I remember. And it's always been in my top three shows.

    Area 51, UFO's, US Government and all things alien.

    So where are all these other civilizations? The universe is 14 billion years old. There are 8 planets in our solar system and only one civilization. It is a paradox - there are too many planets NOT for there to be other intelligent life. BUT... having a planet of the right size and mass for a livable atmosphere, water, not too hot or cold, being close to a star but not too close, avoiding comets and meteors and moons and other planets. When you look at it like that then the odds start to tumble. Either way, fascinating question. I'm an open minded and optimistic person but i think other life being discovered would be terrifying. To get back to the original topic, there's no way there is alien technology being used at Area 51. Secret cutting edge technology - probably.

    I still own the original CD soundtrack. Lots of Hispanic heavy rock and rap, if that's your bag.

    Does other life exist? The galaxy is too big, too old, for there not to be. There are billions of planets. But there is literally no evidence. Question is - where is everybody? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fermi_paradox Keep watching the skies!

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I think a new stadium down that end of the river would be great. How they're going to pay for it i'm not sure...

    Philippe Coutinho

    2018 Champions League final I'd rather have had Coutinho come off the bench after Salah went off injured, than a half fit Adam Lallana.

    New Girl on Countdown

    Does she write her own Tweets or does she have a team of brain dead 12 years olds do it for her?

    Rate the last TV Show you watched

    To be honest i tend to watch a lot of TV with subtitles on anyway. I've watched a couple of Dark episodes on an iPad Pro with headphones which has been ace - the sound and visuals in Dark are really high quality. The Shield - started rewatching this for the first time in ten years. Don't need to get to the end to know it's an 11 out of 10.

    The Who vs Led Zeppelin

    To be fair jeremy corbyn was probably made up to be called a communist.

    I find English dubbing adds an unwanted element of comedy.

    Rate the last TV Show you watched

    I've been watching Dark on Netflix - the weird German show. Love it. About 8 episodes in. I love all things German so am a bit biased but i'm really enjoying it. It is, as the name suggests, a bit dark. It's about children who are going missing over a few decades in a small german town, but also throw in a bit of time travel/pre-destiny and 80s nostalgia. Good for anyone who likes creepy/dread/mystery TV etc. It's slow moving and obviously in subtitles so you need to pay attention. There only seems to be about 6 locations (the mysterious cave, the mysterious forest, the mysterious hotel, the mysterious power plant, plus the local school and a couple of houses where mysterious things happen). Recommended for anyone who likes Twin Peaks, Channel Zero, The Killing etc. Saying that i haven't got to the end which might turn out shit. Who knows. 8 out of 10 so far.

    Just started rewatching this on All4. Christ, the adverts.

    Computers and consoles - what have you got?

    Plus some people wouldn't know where to start with emulation. Roms and correct emulators and settings is too much like hard work. But if someone who has a fond memory of owning a C64 sees this pop up on their Amazon account then they might just buy on a whim. And there are collectors who will buy anything. But yes i generally agree - when i see the retro machines i always remind myself that i have loads of machines with loads of emulators already. )I did buy the playstation one but that was cheap and on offer and i really just wanted the two usb controllers ha.)
  21. Always interested to know what other people waste I mean spend their time on. So, mine: Nintendo Switch - Probably my main system due to being able to play it in front of the telly in docked mode, or just anywhere in portable mode. Nintendo Wii - I modded this a few years ago. Runs many hundreds of Snes, Nes and Megadrive games. Also runs Gamecube games off an SD memory card. It is supposed to run Wii games off a card but i've only managed to do that a couple of times (would need to buy an externally powered USB drive. Maybe one day). My 5 year old loves playing the motion control games - I still think the Wii is a brilliantly fun machine. Nintendo Gamecube - Got about 20 games and a lovely Wavebird controller. Nintendo Gameboy Micro x 2 - One pink and one silver. Great little machine, fits in your pocket, i've taken them on holiday all over the place. Nintendo Gameboy - In yellow. Still works. Sony PSP x 2. Got two slims - one 2000, one 3000. Modded both so they play PSP games off a memory stick, and also run Snes/Megadrive/Game Gear roms. Also runs Neo Geo and Capcom emulators. Sony PS Vita x 2 - Got an original OLED (bought for £50 off Gumtree perfect condition) and the newer Slim version (which i got for free off a workmate). Modded both to play Vita games off a memory card and various emulators. MacBook Pro - Don't really use it for gaming. Would there be anything worth playing? Android phone - use my previous Motorola to run a SNES emulator. I've got a bluetooth control pad which works great. Android phone - my current Motorola. Tend to play Mario Run, GTA Vice City (with a bluetooth controller), battleships and the old Speccy game Chaos. I reckon i spend more time messing round with systems (modding, downloading games) than actually playing them. And I usually just end up playing Sensible Soccer or Vice City most of the time anyway. I've never played on an Xbox and gave up with the home Playstation after the PS2.

    Best James Bond?

    I've always been fond of the Timothy Dalton ones. Can't watch the Moore ones these days. Connery will always be brilliant.

    The New Cricket Thread

    That was an amazing day's sport. The last hour was outrageous. Feel sorry for people i've spoken to today who didn't see it or are acting like they don't care. "What cricket?" i've heard a couple of times. Talking out their arse cos it's all over the news, like.

    Best James Bond?

    How do you know you don't like them if you've only seen bits of them? I've seen all the Bond films many many times and once upon a time was a bit of a Bond nerd, but there's no doubting for me that the Daniel Craig films are far superior to most other Bond films. The Pierce Brosnan ones have dated very badly very quickly.
