  1. You can read his thoughts on the verdict here https://jodyredmires.com
  2. Really sad to hear this news. One of the great characters of the Lake and the only person I ever put on ignore. That didn't last long though as his posts were so compelling and entertaining I kept sneaking a peek anyway. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. The Lakes shines less brightly tonight.
  3. Watched this last night. Great film. Dunno which facts they fabricated, but either way he carried some burdens with him I'd say.
  4. I love the Song of Ice and Fire books. My eldest read them some years back and passed them on to me. Currently reading 'Falling & Laughing- the restoration of Edwin Collins', and also Roddy Doyle's 'Two More Pints'
  5. Agree 100% - Joffrey and Margaery have always been a suspicious union from the outset. Despite her pretending to like his cruelness in the last series, the way she reacted to him with visible distaste as he belittled folks during the wedding, belied her true feeling and (in retrospect) the fact that she knew her marriage was going to be short lived.
  6. So, so pleased with last night's episode. I just hope this doesn't cost us the loss of Tyrion too.
  7. Sticking with Roddy Doyle at the moment as there's a few of his books I've missed in the past few years. Just finished Two Pints which is a series of conversations between 2 Irish chaps in the pub. It's topical for when it's written and a little Irish-centric but I think most folks would get most of the gist. Needless to say it's absolutely hilarious. Just over a page a chapter and the length of a long-short story :-)
  8. I've just finished The Guts by Roddy Doyle. It's the full novel follow up to The Commitments (he did a short-story follow up called 'The Deportees some years back). The Guts is hilarious. I read it in 2 sittings and despite it's background story of Jimmy Rabbitt's fight with bowel cancer - I rolled about laughing throughout. Very good 'feel good' book. Currently reading Bono by Mick Wall.
  9. Off to see Joe Carnall & Friends at the Leadmill tonight so getting in the mood with a bit of Milburn
  10. Enjoyed this one. Her characters are complex, likeable and not. Did you read The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox? One of my favorite books. Didn't see the end coming at all in that one. Heatwave was the first time I've come across O'Farrell. It came up as a recommendation on my android and I downloaded it on a whim. Will check the other out though thanks. Currently reading Morrisey's Autobiography. Struggling with the 'no paragraph' format. It's doing me head in.
  11. Instructions for a Heatwave - Maggie O'Farrell Good story - family living in London during the summer of 1976(I remember it well - scorcher), kids all grown up with their various problems. Father goes missing. Where can he be? Enjoying it a lot
