  1. Album of the year

    Interested in hearing what people would consider to be the best album of 2021, and yes I do insist on one album as opposed to a list! I'm saying 'As Days Get Dark' by Arab Strap. Very rarely does a band reunite and put out their best album but it's an absolute corker.

  2. Shades pub

    There is a poster on the Facebook I Love Edinburgh page trying to find Alec and Susie Gibb from Shades pub. My, admittedly patchy memory thinks Shades was connected to Erich Schaedler, and, can anyone help?

  4. Your dream menu

    Inspired/stolen from the wonderful Off Menu podcast, thought I'd start a thread with one on here. Water - still or sparkling? Poppadoms or bread? Starter? Main course?

  5. A sad day

    Sad to see the passing of Mike Nesmith, Steve Bronski and Mensi today. As a big fan of the angelic upstarts the latter saddens me most. A band who released some absolute classic singles and a few brilliant albums. Hard to count how many times I'd seen them live. https://youtu.be/owrVQebWCtc

  6. Chess

    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...

  7. Can dogs see different colours?

    Is it possible to train a dog to growl, bark and generally get angry when it sees maroon. Not asking for a friend.

    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. https://youtu.be/fxym7aNqVYU not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.

    Anybody noticed a bigger drop in fuel consumption than the 1 or 2% that has been mentioned? I've just used my second tank and have averaged 3.6% less mpg than my previous. Same routine journeys as before.

    I absolutely love music from the 70s some absolute classics came from that decade, but the thing I love the most about that decade is the way they didnít care that the lyrics didnít always fit with the soundtrack, they just made it fit by shortening or elongating the lyrics to suit the soundtrack....
