    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
  2. the title is actually a rhetorical question, i think some time ago i gave my opinion that tony abbott would prove to be our worst prime minister ever, although to be fair i can only remember back to living under ming and his successors, so maybe prior to the middle of last century we had worse leaders anyway, several people offered a dissenting opinion at the time, so i thought it was germane to revisit the subject and ask if there are any people out there who might be able to offer a positive spin on this bunch of hooray henries don't let me single out the p.m. though - feel free to comment on joe hockey, christopher pyne and george brandis too, to name just the worst other offenders on the front bench i don't think i've been as embarrassed to admit australian citizenship since the latter days of the howard regime, but i would be pleased to have somebody enlighten me as to the significant positive changes to australia since the last federal election... although i must accept that the defeat and retirement of kevin rudd stands up as one shining plus knock yourselves out

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    because not everyone has an aural fixation, i propose an equivalent thread to the "and what are you listening to?" thread, because my creative and artistic friend(s) often alert me to really great things so, does anyone know how to imbed vimeo, or is it too "out there" to have the ability ? meantime, whilst you cogitate on that, here's my first offering : The Gunfighter really amusing :) and because no-one has even commented on my prior linkage to this web series : High Maintenance immensely fucking awesome !! feel free to add your own, but they had better be good really, really good ... or i won't like them (much)

    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)
  6. 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

    i see dead people

    every new corpse tends to get their own brief thread, and then they sink down the listings like so much dust to the bottom of the vacuum bag of collected human existence so i've decided maybe we need a consolidated thread where each new loss can be mourned, but they all get another chance for consideration with each new addition to the thread, and like a communal cemetery for the entire planet's icons of our younger days, they gain vicarious immortality and repeated exposure whenever someone else comes to the party (as it were) so, today's nomination isn't a major player, but those of significant vintage will remember don rickles he was commonly seen giving shit to celebrities in roasts, but my best memory is him as the conniving player in kelly's heroes - crapgame, the quartermaster who co-ordinated the supplies they needed to set out for the gold, and joined their platoon ...and the voice of mr. potato head in toy story - what better pedigree for a guy who got famous at roasts ? vale mr. rickles; you represent a politically incorrect, simpler world, and you will remain part of the background noise of my youth

    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

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    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

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    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
