Seen this on a few forums, usually a laugh, apologies if it's already been done on here.
Post the first word that comes into your head after reading the previous post.
I'll start it off.
Horse racing or even just horses, can't begin to understand the fascination with them.
Monarchists, some people seem to love the Windsors more than life itself, wtf is all that about?
Where do you all go? For the last couple of years Iíve been going to Kurdistan barbers in portobello. I get my hair and beard done, the service is unbelievable. Such nice guys and so professional in what they do.
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"

There's loads of bands I love but will admit that they've had a bad album or have a major flaw - there are a small handful that I would say are perfect in their output.
BjŲrk is one of them - Debut and Post were outstanding, Homogenic an all time classic and even in her more recent years has...
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

What would you put into your Room 101 when it comes to music? You get three picks.
My first is technically proficient bands who offer little in the way of excitement. Seen The 101 at Belladrum who could play their instruments well but were dull as dishwater. Compare that with bands like Retro...
We have a Cocker Spaniel, had him for a month, the previous dog we had (Yorkie) had the usual treats for good behaviour etc. We used to go to Morrisons and get bones/end cuts for him which he loved. We were at Tesco yesterday and asked the Butcher if they had any bones/end cuts but they said they...
Takes me back..Had a burd for every day off the week back then.
Now im middle aged and growing stuff in my gairden :rolleyes:
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...
This viewing option seems to be more and more prevalent.
As I mentioned on the box sets thread, I started watching Killing Eve last night. It's a brand new drama (I was going to call it a series, but is it?) and every episode is already available.
It's indicative of how people's viewing...
Following on from the Beautiful Tracks thread, I thought of a few classical pieces that would fit the bill, but that thread went in a different direction, and anyway classical music is such a broad category I think it deserves a thread of its own. So, if you have a favourite classical tune or...
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)
At the request of Alfiembra, here's the Driving Pet Peeve thread for frustrated motorists.
So, to kick it off.......

Sitting in a 'Spoons pub in Carlisle drinking this (4%). Anyone else had it? it's very moreish, though its awfy sweet.

Thereís a few songs out there that start in a certain way but then switch to a completely different style half way through. I love them, but letís list them.
ill start with wings band on the run and the killers all these things that Iíve done.
This is inspired by the Two-Part Songs thread,
Lots of songs follow the same model verse-chorus-verse-chorus- something different -chorus or ABABCB. The ‘something different’ bit can be in a changed key or even a changed time signature, and there’s something about the way it resolves itself to...
Turned up to Glasgow this morning to find my flight to Philadelphia is delayed by 3 hours. Meaning I miss my connection onto San Francisco, so I've now been bumped onto a later flight and won't get to California until 6am tomorrow morning.
I vowed never to fly with American Airlines after a...
In the past I have thrown away anything battery operated where the batteries have leaked-corroded and the terminals of the device have become covered in a crust of battery acid type stuff. Just had the same happen with my son's tv remote. I decided to Google a remedy and discovered vinegar on a...
Anyone else doing it tomorrow?

I've just been in B&Q.
I've no idea as to why, but I really like the smell of that place.
In fact, I'm still sitting in their car park so I think I'll pop back in for another ming at it.
(Also to buy a specialist bulb, the price of which I previously balked at.)
Used to be a huge fan of Eminem - the first CD I ever bought was the Slim Shady LP but Revival really disappointed me, Em is capable of so much better. Any Slim fans on here?
always had a soft spot for, I guess what you would call educational(?), jokes. Jokes to do with maths and the likes.
best two I've heard recently
My dad once told me i had a lot of potential, right before he pushed me off the balcony.
(not so much a joke, but I like it)
Amarone in George Street was the venue for my niece's graduation dinner. I wasn't overly impressed, then again I never really expected to be if I'm honest. Lows were;

This isn’t about your favourite films, it’s about the ones you stumble across on any given night and once you start watching, you know you’ll be in to the end.
You maybe weren’t looking out for it but when you are scrolling through the EPG you find it’s on and it’s an automatic press of the...
I'd say travel and sport and in particular football as far as sport is concerned are the greatest passions in my life other than family obviously.
With that in mind, where are the greatest and most enjoyable places you have visited? Where would you most like to visit next?
I think Ive managed...
I'm heading off to NYC this weekend and looking for some bar recommendations.
I'm well aware, as like with most big cities, there are tourist traps, so looking for some bars that come with the Hibs.Net endorsement and seal of approval.
I'm lodging close to Times Square but will be all over...
I expected this to be a complete tumbleweed thread! Apologies in advance!
Iíve been tasked in organising a Christmas work night out for my team in Edinburgh. Weíve got a big department one the night before so weíre not fussed about the whole party venue night out.
Living in Australia the last 4 years, Iím feeling totally out of the loop.
Any decent bands from Scotland over that time I may have missed? Just stumbled upon Mastersystem the other day, the Frightened Rabbit/Editors side project.
I was wondering if there was any old techno music fans amongst us. I spent a huge part of the 90s in clubs and all nighters like rezerection. If so give us some of your favourite tunes. Iíll start.
not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.
Currently listening to Vienna and it got me thinking. What other classic songs didnít make it to the top of the charts.
Hi guys, any thoughts on where's best to buy a new TV. I'm thinking Argos or Currys but I'm sure there used to be a lot more places that sold them (shops, not online). Don't really fancy Argos as want to see the TV up close before buying it so I'm thinking Currys.
Also, am I better buying a...
Went to see the Irish comedian Jason Byrne tonight. Hilarious. First thing he did was pick on Christophe Berra who was in the audience and slag the size of his heid!
I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.

At the suggestion of hibbyradge, here's the Movie Cliche thread.
One that drives me mad is when police go to interview a witness or someone who might know something, the person always carries on working while they talk to the police. The car mechanic fixing a car, the warehouseman loading boxes,...
Whats going on, is it usually this difficult to find a place to rent? I know its Festival time but I've been looking for months and months. Anything that is half decent gets snapped up instantly. Prices seem ridiculous whether on the outskirts or in the city centre. So many student flats aswell....
