    Green Room non-Googleable Music Quiz Game.

    the hair clue was fine at the stage of this song ii thought linda mccartney was already rocking a proto-mullet, but i may well be wrong so, here we are again fc by ds & rs around a decade after the last song, and this has a seasonal association, and a rather personal link to the artists of this and the last song oooh ! cryptic

    how crap is this government ?

    scooter is really a complete idiot https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-15/government-recognises-west-jerusalem-but-keeps-tel-aviv-embassy/10614226 surely this is just provocative to our muslim neighbours, and done to complicate life for the next australian government (which won't be his)
  4. well, j&j news certainly gets worse and worse https://www.smh.com.au/business/companies/johnson-and-johnson-knew-for-decades-that-asbestos-lurked-in-its-baby-powder-20181215-p50mgf.html this information is truly disturbing

    how crap is this government ?

    my take on the cic proposal, with apologies to banjo there were movements in the house, and the whiff had got around that the leadership of scott had got away the libs were passing motions, for their fear was so profound and their benches showed the marks of disarray all the tired and old distractions as the chief did raise the bar were blustered to the house with pious might for the pollies love time biding where the wild ideas are and the public snuffs a loser in full flight

    when we renovated the kitchen / living room a few years back, one of the "white goods" we bought was a (rather expensive) mitsubishi fridge it has 2 doors and no less than 4 drawers to stash stuff - and two of the drawers have separate sliding compartments i have never really been much of a fridge fanbois till them - but this thing is fucking awesome, and as quiet as an frozen ninja amongst its other marvellous attributes are an ice cube drawer, where it isn't plumbed, but you fill a container that slides in the main doored compartment, and it drops ice into the drawer from above onto a foam carpeted tray (so it isn't loud), and by some oriental magic the cubes remain permanently individual - that and the main freezer drawer (and another small one also) never make frost at all, and it has been running for over 2.5 years without more than the occasional clean and the doors don't shut automatically, so loading stuff isn't a constant fight with such a mechanism and it does the "ping" if you forget to close them, but it's a very quiet occasional beep until you ignore it long enough, and then it gets more frequent but no more annoying, as if is politely apologising that it needs your assistance to function correctly

    So - who's around these days?

    my social life is so pathetic i have to party where i can get it and this fits the bill... a small gathering of agreeably weird people who are in many ways more similar to me than most of the rest of the world

    to find out how high i hoist it with discus launch, and to log the flights (and to monitor the battery in the rx - it's a pretty cool toy) https://alofthobbies.com/frsky-g-rx8.html i bought it to encourage me to finally build the thowt (see below), which i bought when the oz $ was flying high, but as i haven't broken my 900mm model yet, i have procrastinated ++ on getting to it, which has been beneficial as in the interim they started producing the all-in-one rx/altimeter, and this iteration is good to go with a single cell for power
