  1. Some of those songs from the early part of the century......................remember when we naively thought that Bush/Blair was as bad as it could get? How foolish we were.......
  2. So, this creates a window for the oft discussed Cumbrian tight throat singing album. Perhaps the holy grail of a joint venture with Skel Nonch and Erk Drey? That would alleviate some of the misery of 2020.
  3. She undoubtedly is. I'm convinced the relationship was "transactional" from the get go, but the presidency put the kibosh on the amicable (and doubtless fairly lucrative) de-coupling. She's now tied to him for as long as he's in the White House, I'd imagine a year or so on from his exit they'll quietly part, she'll be left secure enough financially, he'll find a younger model for another transactional relationship.
  4. JJs get beat? Ooohhhh my heart bleeds for "Broony".
  5. Just a thought but you spell the holy deity's name with a capital letter. Bruce.
  6. This. I'd love to see a relevant third act/third age output from our man in these dark days.
  7. Only if you need my consent to marry the President. (But not this one...... consent withheld.)
  8. I dunno, modern fitba..... Things that were mantras when I was a lad....."last man never plays a square ball across his own box"......."one touch inside your own area".......they're just gone now.
  9. I think this is the first European Cup tie I've watched since last year's final. As the saying goes "the game's needing a goal". Waiting on Bayern for a treble but it's nae for a big lift so just looking for a decent game
  10. "Dirt road to Lafayette" . Nice understated, undemanding watch.
  11. Yup, another Seeger lover here. Saw two shows, Birmingham 9th November and the second Empire Pool show, Sunday 12th (night after this one). Just so much to love but for me the highlight is the (IMHO now definitive) "Blinded by the light". The Seeger version of this is one of my favourite Bruce tracks.
  12. Didn't watch this, forgot tbh. Did Jesse perform? He loves a Clash cover in concert. Death or Glory? I'll scour t'internet when I get a chance. Weird to think I'm now seven years older than Joe was when he passed.
  13. I'm familiar with the Red Cross and Amnesty, obviously, (not the other two) but working towards a world where Amnesty and the Red Cross are not needed should absolutely be publicly funded IMHO. In the UK I'd suggest the Arts should be beneficiaries of Lottery funding (fair do's a kind of charity I suppose. The EJI organisation.....well a society that has the need of such an organisation (and, I confess, I say this after only a perfunctory glance at their website) is pretty badly broken and needs fixing in a myriad of ways (cause/effect etc ).
  14. I think every government should have at the heart of their aspirations the alleviation of the need for charity. Unfortunately, too many politicians, and voters, see the need for charity in so many areas (be it specific, homeless charities, hunger charities etc. or just more general, poverty) as inevitable, something that 'just happens'. They don't see the cause and effect of policies. (Note, an unfettered free market causes poverty. That's a fact.) Is it stoppable? Maybe, maybe not. Is it stoppable if you don't aspire to stop it? Sure as shit not. If you aim for the stars you might just hit the ceiling, trouble is, most politicians are content to aim for the gutter of short term self interest. And AJ, the day when we don't need dog shelters or dog rescue is certainly one I dream about.
  15. That is true of SO many public services. Yet the aspiration remains to get them in the hands of "wealth creators" (sic) to line their pockets at the expense of service provision.
  16. This discussion was had elsewhere I recall. That could seriously mess me up .........
  17. Jason seems to bebumping out a live one every few weeks.
