Re: Real ale

Wetherspoons beer fest is on now, and they have brought back the delightful Polish plum beer! Yay! They have also brought in Woodchuck cider from the USA, which I was too drunk to remember to order last night, heheh. Robbie, which of the 12 astronauts to land on the moon did your signature quote com...

Re: Lambchop

I was kinda 'dragged along' to see this bunch in Glasgow last night. I didn't really know any of their songs, and wasn't keen on the pure quiet stuff. However, I was very impressed with the poppier songs, especially International Talk Like A Pirate Day, and was quite flabbergasted by the encore - a ...

Re: Astrophysics and astronomy and space things

Oh, sweet phoenix! Blub indeed. I'll have to catch up on that later. Less than 2 weeks to visiting Kennedy! Scream! The shuttle launch is no longer an isue as it's been moved to 3 hours after we leave Orlando. So bloody close! With more time on our hands, no doubt we'll make full use of the 2-day ad...

And their miscellaneous sequels of course.

Creepshow is ace, haven't seen it for years! That TV show Tales From The Crypt is like it, but not as nasty!

Re: holidays/vacations

Scream! This time in 3 weeks Chris and I should have landed at Newark, and be in the bar awaiting the connection to Orlando, sipping Sunset Wheat beer with a wodge of orange on the side. Or still in the immigration queue, depending on how many people forget to fill out the I-94 before landing, teehe...

Schokobons are lovely! And I got addicted to those Mikado things in Brussels. Yummy!

I ate a whole 100g bar of Milka Happy Cows earlier. My stomach is hating me now.

Re: Graeme Elston. He's now in a band called Slipslide who have released some ace stuff on Matinee. Oh! I remember him from being in Pure, who released stuff on a Liverpool-based Japanese label - I have the compilation stashed away somewhere, 'Birth Of The True'. I just can't remember the name of t...

Re: B&Bs, hotels and other places to stay

Chris and I have had good deals on the Hilton by the City2 centre in Brussels, and the Hampshire Hotel near there was also pretty good.

Re: 'Orrors

A horror film featuring Robin Askwith? Wow, I never knew about that. I love the Confessions films. Is it a comedy horror, or an unintentional comedy, or actually scary? If it's double-bill-able with Psychomania it must be worth seeing! I was very happy to pick up the Omen pentology DVD box set for £...

Re: Lush bath and beauty

I resisted buying any of the new xmas stuff as it'll be in the shops soon, but I see Twinkle has gone up in price in its new star shape - hope it's grown in proportion! I'm glad I got loads of snowcake last year (and still have about a kilo left), as the new soap base is shite and I'll be avoiding i...

Re: stores

H&M and New Look seem to be most common in my wardrobe, but I'm so picky that I shop around tons and buy odd bits from many other places. Some of my favourite clothes have been bought on holiday - I have a gorgeous top from Bluenotes in Toronto, and another top I love from Dillards in San Antonio. I...

Re: It's the Large Hadron Collider Thread, yo!

I saw Brian Cox presenting a science show a while ago, I think it was about parallel universe stuff or something - was in the same season of stuff as the Eels-guy's-dad documentary. He is quite funny, and even a physics loser like me can understand the way he explains things. He should have been my ...
