  1. I was deadly serious. Look at my face

  2. I bet you didn't stop reading there did you? You are the most tunnel-visioned football fan I've ever heard from. I know you are (or were, not sure if it runs out or whatever) qualified referee, but that doesn't mean that your red tinted specs don't blur your vision. You love a rant against the old firm when it goes against Aberdeen. There was contact by Considine, and it was a goalscoring opportunity. You'd have been absolutely screaming for the decision if it was at the other end. Did you ever stop to think that the seven penalties were for seven fouls in the box? I'm not going to argue that they were because I'll be honest, I haven't seen them all. But the two yesterday would be given more times than not. The first was a definite penalty and the second was a bit dubious, but still a foul. Stokes took a dive - I'll give you that. And I wish he hadn't because I don't like players diving. But he was kicked by Young in the box and he went down. If Stokes had kicked Young in the box and he'd gone down, you'd have wanted a penalty. The referee was not biased yesterday. I'm absolutely adamant of that. By the way I honestly didn't see the foul on Vernon in the run up - must have taken my eye off the telly for a couple of seconds or something. If that's the case, then that's harsh on Aberdeen. You're only about the second Aberdeen fan I've heard mention it though, which suggests to me that it may not have been a foul (because otherwise every Aberdeen fan would be going mental about that fact), but I didn't see it so nae sure. But decisions go against Celtic all the time as well. I've been watching Celtic for years and years, and I have been absolutely furious at the end of plenty of matches because of decisions going against us. I haven't counted them up to see if we get more or less, but we definitely get them both ways a lot of the time. It's called human error. But, the fact is that Celtic spend more time in their opponent's box than vice versa so we are more likely to get more penalty decisions (one way or the other) than our opponents, same goes for offside decisions, goals chopped off etc. And likewise, Aberdeen are a team in the bottom half of the table, so are probably defending more than a team at the top end of the table, so red cards for last ditch tackles are more likely. I have, however, calmed down in my old age. If a decision goes against Celtic these days, I'm normally over it by about 3 minutes after the final whistle, because football doesn't matter enough to ruin my day/week anymore.

  3. You must go. You live in Aberdeen, it's a musical event (regardless whether you like the acts playing at all) so you must go otherwise you hate everything that music in Aberdeen stands for. That and you might make some people cry by not going Still not enough of my sort of stuff on to warrant paying 90 but a good mix of stuff on for folks that like the sort of things that are. Clientele wouldn't bother me, i have to deal with Aberdonian minks on a day to day basis Can't echo the "fantastic achievement" sentiment enough though.

  4. I still have the original 20Gb hardrive on mine and it's not near full. The space is taken up by downloading games from the LIVE Arcade/demos also you can install games onto your hardrive so that they boot quicker and run quieter. However on the newer xboxs the noise from discs running isn't nearly so bad. So if you're not planning to downloads heaps of games etc you could get away with one of the smaller hardrives no problem.

  5. Do you people need a map to find the couch in your living room? I was simply trying to ask what the setup is going to be? I don't have a fucking dog. I just want to know how easy it will be to hurl glass bottles of piss into the crowd ldo.

  6. FIIIIGHT Also, I'm sort of in that boat. It's an astonishingly good line-up in terms of profile, but musically I'd see a few of the acts, not them all.

  7. One thing that really irks me is when cyclists expect to be treated with respect by motorists on the road, but then feel that they have the right to completely ignore red lights. So many times I've seen pedestrians narrowly avoid being hit by cyclists who think they can keep going when there's a green man. On one occasion I saw a cyclist fall off his bike after being forced to slam on his brakes, and then he proceeded to get all pissy at the pedestrian as if it was him who had done something wrong. Either cycle on the pavement and act like a pedestrian, or abide by the rules of the road!

  8. I like the Shahbaaz in Rose Street. The owners, Mr Latif and Mr Rafiq, are always there to ensure everything is perfect. I've been going there for over 20 years and highly recommend the Shahbaaz. I will be there late tonight so no Aberdeen Music Stalking!
