RE: [VIDEO] Karen Pirie

Looks good but Brit Box.
Only so many subscriptions I'm prepared to stump up.

The Devil's Hour

Anybody watching this on Amazon?
Just done episode one and not sure.
It's one of those that throws disparate incidents and threads at you which presumably knit together as we go on.
Sometimes that works sometimes it's an easy excuse for not writing a coherent script.
Probably give ep 2 ago as the acting seems pretty good even if the lighting is a bit over or rather under done.

RE: [VIDEO] Qatar FIFA World Cup 2022

Consider that I drive all over this city and its surrounding area every day.
I haven't seen any flags on cars or houses with England flags or bunting.
Not one.

What's it like near any of you, any different.

They've set up a fan park on the cricket club in Sefton Park. All boarded off, with loads of cones and signs warning of traffic control.

No traffic control or traffic to be controlled and I've never seen anyone going in or out just four or five security guards chatting amongst themselves.

Maybe it will change when the knockout stages start and if we progress at all but right now it looks like someone is really taking a bath on this one.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 22/23 Season

Juve 1 AWFC 1
Real sweaty palms match.
We were all over them in the first half and we had enough chances to win it.
Blackstenius off the bar and just before they scored Lotte Wuben-Moy header cleared off the line.
Foord had a chance to win it three mins into injury time but waited too long and the keeper smothered it.

Not tragic as it keeps us two points on top of the group with Juve behind us.

RE: [VIDEO] Post Trump fallout

Another theory I just heard, which is just as likely, is that the GOP realise it's Trump or they're out anyway as he'll stand whatever they do.
He could drop dead tomorrow and he'd still get 10% of the vote.

Which would make Jan 6th 2.0 an almost certainty.

Listened to that walking the dog and I have not forgiven them for getting me to listen to that tw*t. I thought it was going to be a short clip.

Infantino accuses the west of being hypocrites after telling them to stop going on about politics and concentrate on the sport. Then gives a fifty five minute monologue on politics.

The extra to that is he had to phone one that he'd sacked to come and sort out that they were all locked out.
Couldn't make it up.

If there's not a movie or Netflix series on this down the line I'll be amazed.

"No booze please,"

It's arguable that there wasn't any available anyway as it was exclusively Budweiser (Gnat's p*ss).
The amount that will be smuggled in by extremely resourceful supporters of many countries not just England along with the reports of the Danish reporter and crew, with full accreditation, being assaulted by Qatari security does not bode well for a peaceful competition.
Glad I'm not there.

"Anway, quite enjoying watching Musk fail at this."

Says an engineer. 😁

I've got no plans to Twitquit but having an account on Mastodon gives me somewhere else to go rather than just shouting at the TV if, as is seeming increasingly likely, it goes down.
I think it's unlikely to die completely and something will remain or rise phoenix like from its ashes. Though I'm not entirely sure Musk will still own it by then.
The shame of it is what made me a regular will likely disappear which is the amount of Journos on there and the fact that you would regularly get the raw news that they edited and wrote up or broadcast later on.

NEW: Twitter just alerted employees that effective immediately, all office buildings are temporarily closed and badge access is suspended. No details given as to why.
After just telling them if they aren't in the office he'll take that as their resignation.

The Secret Genius of Modern Life

On the Beeb's iPlayer and we've just had the second episode on Food delivery apps, first one was on Bank cards.
Boring thinks you.
Seriously give it a go.
Presented by Prof Hannah Fry who the camera loves and manages that trick that all good presenters need, the ability to talk just to you and also not down to you. No higher praise than I'd give her the James Burke award (if there is one).
If you watch episode two tell me the bit on GPS with the US military doesn't get a 'What?!' from you.

Which is all fine and well as long as Murdoch (91) lasts until the election in 2024.
His heir designate, Lachlan, is even more right wing than him and may start Trumpeting should he get the reins.

RE: [VIDEO] Post Trump fallout

He has to really.
His only hope surviving the avalanche of legal sh*t he's under is being top dog again.
First he has to get the Republican nomination, which is far from likely as DeSantis did astoundingly well and everyone he backed lost.
If he doesn't get the nomination I'd expect a separate MAGA party with him as the head to stand.
He'll then claim he won whatever the result and it will come down to how many MAGA nutjobs are prepared to full Jan 6th again.

Man City investigation

As the league's investigation into City is now apparently into it's fourth year
this thread is worth a read. (not that long)

RE: SAS Rogue Heros

Episode 6
Finished.
Not really something you could do a season two of but bloody exceptional.
Loved everything about it.
Casting, filming, editing, playlist.
Acting absolutely faultless for me.
I wouldn't single anyone out for best actor but personally loved Jack O'Connell as Paddy Mayne.

I'm not thinking past January right now.

Let's see if we can pick up where we leave off after the extended winter break.

EDIT: The WSL and Women's Champions league is still going throughout.
We've got Utd at home next Saturday 17.30 and
Juventus away on the following Thursday 20.00
