  1. General Movie Thread

    Jim Carrey: I Needed Color from SGG on Vimeo.
  2. The General Podcast Thread

    Not listened to it in a while, but it goes off in tangents you would expect from Bob.
  3. Random Music Thoughts

    Mainly because of my dad being overzealous and thinking my record collection should be his record collection (even though his taste is somehow worse than mine), I've got about 10 LPs I want to get rid of. But I'm finding it fucking impossible to sell any of them and they're just taking up space. Maybe I should be ironic and collect CDs instead. Nobody does that here.
  4. Chester Bennington suicide

    Same. Linkin Park were the first of three bands I really got into (alongside Limp Bizkit and Sum 41), but they were the ones who had a lasting effect on me - I got through my teenage years and found my writing 'voice' by listening extensively to Hybrid Theory and Meteora. It's sad that it took Chester's death to make me realise Hybrid Theory is probably one of my most cherised albums, even though I made a list in my head of my top 10 albums maybe a fortnight ago and it didn't factor whatsoever. Sometimes it's easy to disregard something as a 'phase' or 'that stupid shit I listened to when I was much younger' when it has fundamentally shaped your very being. Hybrid Theory for most of us is our Led Zepplin IV or our Sgt Pepper's - the defining album of our generation. Just a shame the music press is such a way where we're not allowed to be seen to like it.

    Absolutely fucking heartbroken.
  6. Twin Peaks

    Raunchy? That was one of the funniest scenes of the series so far.

    I think this was the point of the scene with Andy and the two chairs in the previous episode. She knew what colour she wanted beforehand, but played Andy like a violin just because she could. Yes, but only in a 'Jacoby and Nadine shack up' way. Nothing that affects the wider story.

  9. Twin Peaks

    I managed to download the video. It lasts about 13 minutes - a loop of interference but with music. There are a couple of very brief moments of incoherent radio talk.
  10. Random Music Thoughts

    http://obscurifymusic.com/ tells you your all-time top 50 most listened to bands and tracks. I opened my account in 2014 from what I can gather because stuff released that year factors in quite heavily for some reason. MY TOP TEN BANDS: 1. Manic Street Preachers; 2. Foo Fighters; 3. Weezer; 4. Muse; 5. Feeder; 6. REM; 7. Smashing Pumpkins; 8. Deftones; 9. Metallica; Red Hot Chili Peppers TOP TEN TRACKS: 1. 'Tiberius' by Smashing Pumpkins; 2. 'Walk Me To The Bridge' by Manics; 3. 'Something From Nothing' by Foo Fighters; 4. 'Futurology' by Manics; 5. 'Feast and the Famine' by Foo Fighters; 6. 'Outside' by Foo Fighters; 7. 'Out of the Black' by Royal Blood; 8. 'Universe of Life' by Feeder; 9. 'Monuments' by Smashing Pumpkins; 10. 'Europa Geht Durch Mich' by Manics..... Literally every track bar #8 was from a 2014 album.

    We've drawn Sunderland's Under-21 team?
  12. General Movie Thread

    Funnily enough I saw the synopsis of Personal Shopper last week, thought it sounded great, then totally forgot about it until your post. I'll add those four films to my watchlist and give them a go.
  13. General Movie Thread

    I really must get back into films at some point. No joke on nothing, I've watched maybe 20-25 films old and new in 2017. Apart from losing quite a few free days by going to wrestling shows - my issue is nothing cinematically interests me at the moment. I think @Skummy hit the nail on the head in relation to Okja being "heavy-handed" (although he liked the film otherwise) - I'm bored of storytelling particularly in modern films being so obvious; of all nuance and subtlety being replaced by the equivalent of having a brick smashed repeatedly in my face.
