Does "TIE Fight Club" count? [/scraping the barrel for ideas]

A friend of mine, who moved to Greece when he was 13, used to insist that Def Leppard song was a metaphor for getting covered in dust on a building site.

I met him a few years ago for the first time since then, and reminded him of it. He hadn't changed his mind.

What he's done is taken this music video at face value.

That's what I figured too.  They were ok in the 80s, in a cheesy, soft-metal way.  It all started to go wrong with 'Let's Get Rocked' though.

Seeing as it's the Misheard lyrics thread AND you've mentioned the song "Let's Get Rocked" - I hate that song despite Def Leppard being a guilt pleasure of mine - my little sister swore Joe was singing "Lesbian's Rock!"

As in "Lesbians, lesbians, lesbians, lesbians rock!
Get on top now baby
Lesbians, lesbians, lesbians, lesbians rock..."

The TARDIS interior and Paul McGann were pretty much the only good things about the TV Movie. I do still kind of consider the TV Movie interior to be my favourite of them all.
The TV movie was wretched, but I could quite happily live in that TARDIS interior. And with Paul McGann.
I could quite happily live with Paul McGann  ;)  . . . erm . . . I mean I liked his version of the Doctor - including the short webisode when Paul McGann returned and regenerated into the War Doctor. 

Similar to the concept of kind of wishing that Peter Capaldi's Doctor was Malcolm Tucker, I would have liked McGann to be Doctor with Richard E Grant - as Withnail -  to be his assistant. Probably would only work as a spoof for Comic Relief but I would have watched the hell out of it.

Montserrat CaballĂ©, opera singer famous for duetting with Freddie Mercury on the amazing song Barcelona, passed away on 6th October 2018.  Hope she's reunited with Freddie up there for the encore of encores.  :'(

 :'( Such sad news.  I remember being star-struck when he was at the bar at the 40th anniversary. I was too shy to say hi despite him being so friendly and kind
 A giant amongst comic artists - with a legacy of incredible art to be remembered by.

RIP, Mr.E, we'll miss you.

I don't go to ladies of the night either, before anyone asks.

But giggaloes are fine, eh?  ;)

For ages I was horrified by a couple of lines in the song "State of the Nation" by New Order but I now know better

The lyrics do not go:

"My brother said that he was dead.
I saw his face and shit my bed"

 :-[  :lol:

Oh yeah, Bananarama's cover of Venus (I was 7 at the time so didn't know the original...
"Well, I'm your Venus.
I'm your fire
Choke me,  sire"

Sounds a bit kinky like that.  :-\

"Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Daaaad I need the toilet...Daaaad, Sheridan's being naughty in the back of the car...."

Don't mind me I'm bouncing with excitement about going to Lawgiver - it'll be the 2nd convention I've ever been to (the first being 2000AD's 40th last February.  See you lot tomorrow!

How did I miss this thread?

That's totally bodacious news, dude!


For kids.  Yes, that's it.  For kids.  Not for adults.  (Rackle and I both ended up dark side).

And we didn't get excited at seeing all the hidden lego figures or the Dalek, not to mention all the 2000AD exhibits.

I swear I spotted some jimping taking place but I'm not a grass so said nothing. Might have some photo evidence of it somewhere though
