  2. Camera Help

    Hi Folks, I was hoping there may be a camera geek amongst us that may be able to help me with something. I recently started my own business selling properties, before starting up I took a note of the camera I had in my old job that I thought was ideal for what I needed. To my knowledge I...

    Been a resident of the Lothians for 50 years. Today was the first I have ever heard of the Isle of May when I googled it after seeing it from Yellowcraig beach today. My knowledge of Scotlands geography is shocking. I'm really good at flags of the world though. What's your best and worst...

    Again along with the idea of "genre defying" and "songs that blow your mind" thread, not necessarily the best gig you've been to, but the ones that will likely be spoken about for a long time because of significance to the artist or whatnot. First off the top of my head is Blur at Glastonbury...

    So why write a song about it? A song in which money is mentioned over 50 times? (I thought it was time we had a thread for pendantic observations.)

  20. Frankie Boyle v Kevin Bridges

    What do you think? First saw Frankie Boyle in a tent at Murrayfield before an England Scotland rugby game (Scotland won btw) I thought he was hilarious, as time went on his act got a bit more edgy lets say. Kevin Bridges is currently my favourite comedian fullstop. What are your views/thoughts?
