A new game!!!
I will start by saying the name of a song, the next person then has to name a song title which uses a word from the prebvious title.
E.g Sunshine on Leith (proclaimers)- I'm walking on Sunshine
ill start - The Boys of Summer
(Try not to link words like "The"
Not seen a thread like this for a while, so what gigs are people going to in the near future?
I am just starting this as I suddenly have a load of gigs to go to that have only materialised over the last 6 weeks or so :greengrin
Tomorrow - The Bootleg Beatles, Wellington
Nov 10 - Coldplay,...
New thread, what I'll do is post two songs (with links to them). The next poster decides which one they prefer then put their winning song up against a song of their own. The songs don't need to be linked in any way. If you can avoid songs repeating then go for it.
I'll start with:
For any GOT fans the 4th season is set to be aired Sunday April the 6th :thumbsup:
Final category was Scottish Football. The guy was a Partick Thistle supporter. I got 4 of the pointless answers.
Guernica, by Picasso. Order totally shattered, devastated, beaten.
There's been a couple of threads like this before but you can't beat a good discussion about beer.
Currently a huge fan of:
William Bros Seven Giraffes
Timothy Taylor Landlord
Cairngorm Trade Winds
Stewart Pentland IPA
Fallen Smokehouse Porter
Right before i start i realise that certain posters will not be surprised at me starting this thread :greengrin
I also must admit that my experience of Red Wine is limited to what i can buy from Asda and what i can claim on my expenses at Hotels , so mostly house Red :tee hee:
Anyway , i have...
This is a game I got from another forum.
I start by saying something
say:What is life
And then the next poster makes an acroynym out of last word of my sentence in response
say:Life is for elephants (but hopefully better:greengrin)
I remember the cracking pop-punk thread we had a few months ago, how about one on cover versions?
I'll start the proceedings with Havana Affair, originally by The Ramones, as covered by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Is it any good thinking of getting netflix

Now that it seems the Poppy Pilferers may have crossed another hurdle and will be spouting about their great victory in the face of adversity etc, I thought I'd share a tactic one of my older and wiser friends gave me.
He bought me a packet of poppy seeds and asked me to surrepticiously sow them...
A little thread for sharing recipe ideas and so forth, whether it's quick stuff to knock up after work or a full blown meal that takes ages.
Got my own version of a cheap one hour (and particularly unauthentic but still tasty) cassoulet that I swear by for after work, on the way home from work I...
Came across this viral vid of a priest serenading newlyweds during their ceremony.
This is superb
Joined Lovefilm a wee while ago so have been racking up the viewing hours, any recommendations from folks? Doesn't have to be recent films, but have got right into movies again so will watch pretty much anything, as long as it's not romantic ****** comedies.
For what it's worth, just watched a...
I've gone a wee while without listening to much in the way of new music, but there's been a spate of album releases I've wanted to check out lately for one reason or another and I've been pleasantly surprised.
Babel - Mumford and Sons: Develops their sound from Sigh No More and really cements...
Right folks ....
I have just discovered the Mandelbrot set :greengrin I am 42 and i had never heard of this until last night when i was watching a creationist lecture (i know i know):greengrin
This is the video i watched but i realise many people will not watch it as its over an hour...
I travel all over for work so I stay in a lot of hotels.
I've lost count of the number of times I've woken up in the night, needing a pee, only to bounce around the room having forgotten where the bathroom is, in my fourth different hotel room that week.
I don't turn the light on cos it will...
Has to be said that I can't remember that last time I saw such an ill-fitting design of shorts on a football team than our current effort.
Possibly individually Crunchie McAllister in the late 90s but this was hardly a good example given the lad's diminutive stature (heart of a lion though).
With the exception of admins, the last person to post on this thread is the all time greatest Hibs fan.
Childish I know but what the hell :devil:
Wheres the best place to go ?..What clubs and pubs are bouncing and wheres the burds? :greengrin
Can't believe this year is the 20th anniversary of the release of their self-titled album, 'Rage Against the Machine'!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWXazVhlyxQ - still one of the greatest songs ever written IMO :agree:
It's sad that so much of the political relevance of the time from this...
I'm aware the 'Upcoming Gigs?' thread is a good avenue for things we're looking forward to but I'm wondering what are the best gigs you've ever been to? Not just your favourite bands but the cleanliness of performance, crowd atmosphere etc.
I ask as once again, I find myself watching/listening...
that's what we are just now, (economy pack). :flag:
Got to say Danny McNamara from Embrace for me, check out these vocals:
Nae charisma either between songs. The thing is that their guitarist has quite a good voice and sings on their recent single Refugees, why you wouldn't have him singing is beyond me.
Just been on C4 news wearing a " people's Republic of Leith " t shirt. Excellent!
What happened to this and the people that used to commentate on it (Mark Hately, Archie McPherson and a few other guys) There was a scottish commentator on it most of the time I really liked, can't remember his name though.
Doesn't anyone else miss Setanta when Hibs and the rest of the SPL used...
I'm looking to book a lodge in Scotland (preferably within a couple of hours from Edinburgh) for me and my mates (could be anywhere between 8-14 of us) just for the one night at the start of June.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Really interesting, I'm sure they couldve found someone with a science background that would do a better job of presenting it than Dermot though.
What does Man City's tie against Barcelona and Oscar Pistorius have in common?
They lost both legs but did get 4 shots on target. :wink:
Someone on the EEN comments page has claimed the late, great Tony Benn as on of our own?
Anyone aware of this? If so, proof!?
Thread for festival goings on, what festivals you're going to, line-up announcements and so forth.
Major festival acts are being announced here and there now, TITP have Biffy, Calvin Harris and Arctic Monkeys as headliners with Paolo Nutini subbing Harris along with acts like Pharrell Williams,...
Well not sure if this has been done on here before so apologies if it's out of order...
I play in a band. Our bass player left ages ago because his missus was about to have twins (He gave up his season ticket at ER too!)
We're all early/mid forties. The other guys are a Jambo guitar player,...
Premier League footballer and England international to come out as being gay on sunday, anyone know who it is?
Not that it really matters, just curious. Think it's a bit of a shame that such a big deal is being made of it, it's 2014 it really shouldn't matter what his sexuality is. Although...
Maybe a common site to folk in the countryside, but not here at North Gyle! Can't decide whether it would be better in the oven than in my garden though.:greengrin
I've just signed up to Paddy Power and received Ģ20 in free bets after sticking Ģ10 on Sunderland to beat Hull Tomorrow .
I stuck Ģ10 on St Johnstone @ evens when it was 1-1
Ģ10 on Man U @ 5/6 when it was 0-0.
Both are winning at the moment:greengrin
On the horses too.....

Was watching Pointless, last night, think it was a repeat & one of the questions featured Scott Robinson!! Basically you had to say which team he was with at the start of the 2012/13 season. Now the "famous" are so famous that a grand total of 0 people knew the answer!! Never was a phrase more true...
