  1. Metal Detectors

    I suppose everyone thinks of buying one when they hear of some random find in the media but has anyone taken the next step and actually bought one? Does anyone here metal detect as a hobby? Its one of these things I fancy doing in retirement but apart from the obvious, buying a metal...

  2. "Reality killed by a reality star"

    That's one of the lyrics from Tom Jones's new single, "Talking reality television blues". Superficially, it would be easy to dismiss this as another aged performer who has lost his voice, trying to make some money by talking the lyrics instead of even attempting to hold a tune, a la William...

  5. Employers Excessive

    Although lucky to have kept working throughout the pandemic my employer thinks nothing of expecting a 12/14 hour day or 55 - 60 hours a week. Even pre pandemic there was an unhealthy work culture. Is anyone else experiencing the same? A director told us since there is no need to travel to work...

  15. Great opening lines.

    Watching a good programme about the Mississippi tonight, it brought to mind one of my favourite and iconic opening lines to a song : “The Mississippi delta was shining like a national guitar”. from Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’....... so visually emotive. Any others?

  16. The hunt for alien life

    It’s a subject that absolutely fascinates me. The universe is so vast that that intelligent life must exist, even if it’s not widespread. What bothers me is our way of looking, we search for radio waves, what if other civilisations don’t commicate that way?

  17. Taking songs literally

    This idea came up on the Bangers podcast last night (sort of) when we were talking about the guy that tried to jet-ski to one of the Scottish Islands to get his Nat King Cole (think it took 4 hours and I imagine he'd have been walking like John Wayne when he got there) and it led to comparisons...

  20. TV or film remakes you'd like to see

    I often wonder at TV and film studios choices when it comes to remaking old classics. For example, one remake that should never have been conceived never mind actually cast, filmed and released was The Pink Panther. How did they think they were going to improve on those almost perfect...

  22. Guilty pleasures

    Couldn't see a thread on this already, but what stuff do you like that you would consider a guilty pleasure (or you wouldn't necessarily be telling your mates you were into it)? Mine would be Lana Del Ray and shows like Come Dine With Me and Four in a Bed. And First Dates. I'm auld.
