Film & TV / Re: Last movie watched...
« on: Today at 12:20:20 am »
I watched John Wick 2

I liked it, but it wasn't as good as the first one. Keanu Reeves had a go at acting and it didn't work. After the opening scene it started taking itself too seriously. That lass from Orange is the New Black was in it. Although it was a non speaking role, she still managed to put in an atrocious performance. Much like the movie itself, looked good, but not all that convincing or entertaining.

I felt the attempts to set up a franchise undermined this. The first movie was an unexpected treat* out of the leftfield, the really should have left it at that**.

*Maybe the hype deminisned it for Shark and the like.
**Much like The Matrix***.
***Lawrence FishBourne was in this as a crazy hobo prophet. Him and Keanu teamed up again, so that was nice

That's because they don't put bonemeal in dog food anymore due to EU regulations. Thank god for brexit, eh?

Maybe with the potential of the DUP wagging the dog, Farron saw a storm brewing over their politics in religion religion in politics and didn't want to get caught up in the media deluge.

My mate described the DUP's current relationship with Britain quite well. It like someone who really fancies this person to the point of obsession, but when this person finally takes notice, they find their admirer to be utterly repulsive.

John Major thinks this ad-hoc coalition is a bad idea and that's coming from a man who had sex with Edwina Curry

I saw there's a petition doing the rounds to get Sinn Fein to take their seats in parliament. People that voted for Sinn Fein actually want the Shinners to turn their back on one of their cornerstone policies that they have ran in every westminster election.

The Northern Irish Electorate Ladies and Gentlemen.

Aye, that's how I'm looking at it Mister Tordels. The DUPers have taken a serious misstep into the spotlight. NAMA, Redsky, RHI and the abuse of the PoC, the mainstream British media might start taking an interest in all of it. Prominent DUPers may find find themselves in interviews, not with their old chums like Mark Davenport, but attack dogs like Paxman and Snow. I'm looking forward to watching them twist in the wind before being hung out to dry by whoever replaces May.

At the same time, I'm concerned that The Brits will think they are representative of us here in the North. Not an unreasonable assumption since the bastards keep winning elections here. A situation which is a source of constant bafflement to me. Then again, The Tories got the most seats in That election

Do you know where that is Joe, is it Derry.

Well there's proof Tankie isn't a troll, he didn't call it Londonderry  ;)

Looks more like North Belfast to me

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it 'til my fingers bled
Was the summer of '69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard.
Jimmy quit, Jody got married
I should've known we'd never get far

Oh, when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Yeah, I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complainin'
When you've got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that's when I met you, yeah

Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh, yeah.
Back in the summer of '69, oh.

Man we were killin' time
We were young and restless
We needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no! yeah!

And now the times are changin'
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you, wonder what went wrong

Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that it'd last forever
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
Those were the best days of my life

Oh, yeah.
Back in the summer of '69, oh.
It was the summer of '69, oh, yeah.
Me and my baby in '69, oh.
It was the summer, the summer, the summer of '69, yeah

Northern Ireland

Is not an equivalence.  NI was a religiously and politically-polorised society under military occupation.
Although we're fine now.

An equivalence to what? I was making a point about police numbers.

I'm also not sure how you define "military occupation" but I don't think it is an appropriate phrase to use in respect of Northern Ireland.

When you were 12, did you have fully armed military officers asking you where you were going and what you were doing, when you weren't going anwhere in particular and were just walking your dog? How would you define that? How many army watchtowers could you see from your bedroom window when you were a kid? Did you regularly see chinooks ferrying military hardware* hither and thither?

*That was kinda cool and in a funny way I miss it

I shall prepare some huge walls of unPC, irrelevant text for my mayoral campaign.

The Millenium Falcon build is undoubtably the best thread.

Tordels was my first choice for best boarder, but that fella's too normal and reasonable to win any awards on the internet, so I choose Fox. He does the art contest which I always enjoy, and I get a kick out of the way he uses ALLCAPS, without coming across as completely unhinged.

Aye, we've no government and there's uncertainty over how the border is going to work, but no one has been shot or blown up. I'll take that win.
