General / Question to Scottish readers
« on: 07 December, 2002, 07:48:25 PM »
Why is your country so shit?

Only joking - I've never even been there, and I believe it's quite nice.

My real question is this: When Middenface McNulty speaks in 2000ad, does it actually suggest a Scottish accent to you?  Wagner and Grant being from Scotland, I imagine it's pretty convincing; Glasgow, i'd guess.  Am I right, kidsamurai, Strontium Doug or any other Scots people out there?

I only ask because Finnigan Sinister's accent tends to be a million miles away from any Irish accent I've ever heard, although it is fairly funny in its Darby O'Gill-ness.  Maybe it's the Downlode influence. And what is a Downlode accent anyway? Rocky, Tracy, Billy and so on seem to talk like yanks.

General / 2000ad and music
« on: 06 December, 2002, 07:49:47 PM »
As I dimly recall,in the 80's there used to be loads of bands advocating the joys of 2000ad either within its pages or on vinyl. Most were of a metal or gothic ilk such as Anthrax, Motorhead, Alien Sex Fiend, The Cure etc., but also the likes of Madness were proclaiming their love of Thrill Power.  
Would I be right in saying you just don't see that kind of thing any more? I think 'trendy' Tharg never quite got the acid house / rave crowd he was chillin' wit at in the late 80's / early 90's, and after that in the mid-90's 2000ad started catering more for the TV sci-fi (X-Files, Babylon 5) audiences. Personally, i believe it didn't need to; it had its own identity. Although by then, maybe it had lost that identity.
So is still 2000ad cool or what? Was it ever? Does it still have that popular culture / music cross-over appeal that I'm just too old to appreciate these days? Or am I just spouting shite?
