They have stated he was there and had Happy Birthday sang to him.

RE: [VIDEO] Wandavision (and others)

We watched Wandavision a couple of months back.
Certainly started weird in that 50's sitcom, canned laughter setting and wife really didn't like it.
By the end it just all made sense and we all thought it was great.

RE: [VIDEO] So... what are you playing just now?

Ended up carrying on and doing multiple runthroughs on Returnal and just got the Platinum.

RE: [VIDEO] Meat Loaf - rest in peace...

Same here, I heard it was Covid related but his vaccination status was unknown.
Going by some of things he had said, it would not surprise me to hear he was unvaccinated.

Not sure about that, we had a few players missing.
Saka is a great prospect and will get even better.

RE: [VIDEO] Dexter Returns

We finished it earlier in the week.
Thought it was 'OK'.

SPOILER:
As it got nearer to the end it got a bit sillier and sillier..
why was Dexter's badly bleeding  shot leg suddenly OK in the last two episodes?
Amazing coincidence for Batista to bump into Dexter's girlfriend - and then completely mention Dexter.  Oh he had a son..  What was his name?  Oh, Harrison.  Dear me...
Batista could have been in it more - at least a Dexter - Batista confrontation for closure.
Slightly better final than the original - but what's that saying?

RE: Coronavirus, anyone starting to get worried?

I think we'll find out over the coming weeks.
Certainly, for me, the LFTs were being used much more since people in same household stopped needing to isolate and do daily tests and also people with Covid could go out after negative LFTs on days 6 and 7. Lots of chemist's around here struggled with stock the last few weeks.

"but they won't release future games, on PlayStation, why would they, they'll want them as an exclusive so ppl buy the console and their games.
I don't know if anyone knows how it will all play out, but one answer to 'why would they' would be if they would make more money from the millions of sales to PS users than extra X Box console sales.  They'll make money from every copy sold, no matter who it's to.
Consoles (Nintendo aside), at least for a while, are often sold at a loss anyway ironically.

"they don't need to do a Sega yet"
What is it you mean by that?  I'm guessing as needing to leave the console business and make games?
I'm pretty sure Switch was the best selling console last year.  Probably the year before.  And maybe the year before that.  And still sells for close to the same price as on original release - and the newer model sells for even higher than that.  Don't think they'll be doing a Sega anytime soon.

I'm not sure that Sony losing CoD is a given either - still a huge market for them.  Maybe earlier release/extra DLC etc.?

[VIDEO] RE:What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

I'd bet there is none and have never heard autotune mentioned in the same sentence as Guy Garvey's vocals.  He sounds that good right the way through.

What about the vocal on this one?  First 30 secs or so show just how good his voice is.

I'm falling in love with you
I'm falling in love with you
Six words released like pearls
Into the brightening ether

And oh, to read those words returned
I'm fuzzy, I've stumbled onto
Some heavenly escalator

And oh, to read those words returned
The sky's gonna open up and I'll be flooded out to open water

Six lanes of homeward hearts
Glinting to the evening sun
Weary kids in bottle green
Same gate as the ancient scholars



Beautiful song.  Not about being 'in love' as such - but the amazing, amazing thing of being loved.

"Is it me or do I hear autotune? :("
No.
Where do you think you hear it?
The band took over the closed Brighton Theatre Royal to record the album - lots as 'live' and all playing together.  you can really tell I think.
Guy's vocal is as good and gravelly smooth as ever.

RE: Arsenal 21/22 season

I'm obviously missing something.
We've played games and had to field Academy players who most have never heard of and lost.
Asked for one game to be postponed with the whole Training Centre shut down too.
Liverpool asked for the game to be postponed due to positives, not false positives. That they ended up false couldn't have been known at the time. Maybe they should have kept shtum.
Or not turned in the worst home performance in some time.

"Ooooh I think I missed a series somehow. Unless I haven't...

Which series is this from?"
No clue, I just went to iPlayer and saw there are 3 series.
Watched the first couple of episodes - brilliant!!
Had tears at the Bruce Forsyth 'reveal'..

I can only assume either Tinseltown is very different to London - as I have no clue where the Monkees comparison comes from?

RE: [VIDEO] Boris the not-a-spider

Maybe most thought it couldn't get worse than the parties etc. that were going on but the latest story about the party at No. 10 and to 'bring your own booze' -  while many around the rest of the country were going through heartbreak and loss, well it really does beggar belief.
Boris's refusal to answer whether or not he was there (while effectively actually answering the question) is a disgrace.  As is the apparent behaviour of the people at the event and the ones who thought it a good idea to take advantage of the 'nice weather'.  Surely he can't survive this one?

RE: Arsenal 21/22 season

Rules are rules I guess but we've played games without key players a fair few times now. Had a game against Leeds postponed at their request, days after Citeh played the same depleted side and stuck about 7 past them. Leicester was the opposite where they wrote off that game and then brought players back for us.
In these times, it's almost a different sport when you look at the team City put out and a bench worth more than many other sides and we (and others) have Academy players starting or filling the bench - and then they talk about their unbeaten run and Pep the best manager ever. (TM)
