I'll start it off.
18 months since Pet Peeves III.
The fitba' season's over so here's PP-IV prescribed as a wee bit therapy for us moaners until the new season starts.
I hate when temporary roadwork signs are left up when they are not...
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;
Nine out of the ten mains being served together, the tenth person was told "we haven't forgot you,it's just not ready yet" It...
Right now we are getting into the dark nights what's the best tv series to watch right now ?.. I'm already on Leftovers but your only getting 1 episode a week..Im looking to power through a box set or 2 in a week :greengrin

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)
Just watching an ABBA countdown on one of the music channels. They started off as a bit of a novelty act, but they really weren’t. They’re one of the few bands that have managed to transcend the generations and are probably more popular now than they were back then. Some of the figures around album...
What's everyone listening to? Or what genre do you like listening to?
i've referenced it on other threads, but i'm in the process of setting up my own so 1) shamelessly plugging mine here please delete if not allowed but hoping to get some interest and support from friends/family/fellow hibs...
Continuing the recent trend. What’s everyone’s favourite The Who song?
The classics like My Generation, I Can’t Explain, 5:15, Who Are You, Pinball Wizard etc etc stand up against any other bands IMO.
Some of my favourites, although not necessarily their best songs, are The Seeker, Pictures...
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...
Has anyone got one of these and any recommendations?
With many people having more time on their hands atm what books are people reading? Phil Rickman is an author I like. Just finishing his book Friends of the dusk. He writes supernatural mystery which may not be everyone's cup of tea but he creates fascinating storylines that flow nicely and builds...
I was out in the garden today and I noticed a bird flying into a gap between the bricks and the wood at the top of the wall in the back garden. I’ve never noticed before but there appears to be a series of vents along this area, I then noticed another bird flying into one of the other vents and I...
Well it's been talked about on the Beatles thread so why not.
For me Honky Tonk Women will always be top but honourable mentions for a few ballads, Angie, Moonlight Mile, Wild Horses and Memory Motel.
Following on from other film threads, what are your favourite 'low budget' films?
I'll start with
Dead man's shoes
Street cat named Bob
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. I’ll start.
not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.
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,...
At the request of Alfiembra, here's the Driving Pet Peeve thread for frustrated motorists.
So, to kick it off.......
When you are just about to get into your car in a car park some Dumbo decides to draw in tight alongside your driver's door despite there being empty spaces everywhere around....
I'm not sure if this topic has been done before on here, almost certainly I guess, but I can't remember it. It was a Radio 4 show for a while and the Guardian are currently doing it.
So, well, (:greengrin) it's one film acknowledged as a classic that you haven't seen. And maybe explain whether...
I have a rotary hammer drill with a dodgy power lead that I would like repaired if possible but i am having no luck finding anyone who does it.
Can anyone suggest a repair shop that can repair it.
I borrowed it from the brother in law who hates lending tools and I think I have damaged the lead...
Is anyone on here good at chess? And how do you get better?
I used to play with my grandad when I was a kid, I used to think he was a sort of Bonnyrigg grand master at it. When I beat him I celebrated like David Gray in 2016. Unfortunately as i got older, and proper chess players were handing...
Just watched it and I can't figure out the melody that Jack was playing on the piano when Kaya gets back to the house. I know it but just can't put a name to it and it's driving me nuts. HEEEEEEEELP!
The Oscars seem to dictate what we consider to be the best acting performances, but I’m not sure everyone will agree with that. What’s the best performance you’ve seen in a film.
I loved James Mcvoy in Filth and Tom Cruise in Interview with a vampire.
My street who generally do lots of things together are planning a street party within your own gardens, decorating houses, bunting etc. Anyone else 😁
I’ll go for
torture me all you want....
IMO part of Kraftwerk one of the best bands of all time has died. Thanks for the inspiration RIP.
Hopefully this isn't against the rules... I thought it would be good to raise awareness of local deals, both so we can take advantage of them and also help support local businesses.
Couple to start:
Thistly Cross (Cider/Beer) doing 20% off and free delivery...
Who's been watching this?
I've just finished episode 2 of 4 and I'm very impressed.
The lead actor is perfect in the role. Totally awkward and out of place, as her character is, everything about her screams "wrong". It's pitiful, almost painful. Quite brilliant casting, imo.
I love useless facts and information, let's hear everyone's.
I will start with a couple
Antartica is the biggest desert in the world
The day on Venus is longer than the year.
Sent an iphone away to get repaired. We've been unable to remove find my phone and now we have unrepaired phone sent back. Why do they need this removed before a smashed and not working phone can be looked at?
We’re considering/have decided to get a dog - we know the types we’d like (one of my kids has allergies so we need to look for a hypoallergenic). List has been narrowed to Miniature Schnauzer, Bichon Frise, West Highland Terrier.
Does anyone know where I start?
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...
Would be interested to see what others consider to be their favourite top 10 TV series that they considered to be must see viewing. I know there's a best TV thread but I thought it might be useful to see lists as it will enable us to identify people who have similar tastes and maybe find something...
Last year all my veggies got savaged by caterpillars. Just got everything planted & just wating for a mesh sheet to arrive to cover them, could be a bit of a wait with current post though. Can anyone recommend a natural or organic spray that works on them please?
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)
Here is a quiz where you have to guess the sports stars from the clues below, some are are bit naughty, but just a bit of fun. Good luck

Just been listening to Get It On and Kirsty McColl singing New England came on. Cracking song but prefer Billy Bragg version.
Valerie is another of those songs that I preferred The Zutons original.
Any one have a preference on which version of other songs?
Anybody watching the “Fish on Friday” live facebook question and answer video sessions with Derek Dick (AKA Fish) every Friday at 6pm for the last few weeks? I’m fair enjoying them and looking forward to this Friday’s session already!
Anyone got involved with these last couple of weeks? Seems to have really caught the imagination of music fans on Twitter.
Tim (from The Charlatans, in case not aware), arranges with somebody from the band or involved with the album, and gets the actual artists to tweet along with some...
What are you looking forward to doing when all this business is over?
These are all TV or film characters.
It took me a while to understand it, but once you do, it's a bit easier than it first looks.
Having said that, I've still not got half of them.
Don't spoil it by posting your answers yet. I'll ask for them later.
No cheating! If you want a clue or...
