    Aberdeen-Music stalking.

    I have no idea what it is about them, but they're just as bad abroad as well. I met one in Spain in a random Scottish pub, and the prick was going on non-stop about how Rangers have been hard done by and how they were cheated by everyone blah blah blah. Unsurprisingly, he didn't speak a word of Spanish and he knew fuck all about football in general, it was just Rangers this Rangers that. Scottish football would be all the better for it if Rangers were allowed to fuck off and join the English leagues.

    Football Manager 2017

    What's odd about FM17 to me is the way that players will sit as free agents for months rather than sign for less money with me with the promise of first team football. I had one twat on trial, couldn't afford him, he wouldn't accept a contract full of bonuses, and 6 months later - he's still a free agent. He would probably have made more money with the bonuses than through a guaranteed weekly wage as well. He would have played every game, but clearly he's too good for playing on a torn up Meadowbank pitch in the middle of winter and so he prefers to rot away not playing for anyone.

    I didn't even mention the frozen rats in the holes!

    What game are you currently playing?

    We never burnt anything, but anything we could find was chucked in the pond at Westhill golf course without fail on a Friday night, ready for the oil golf wankers on a Saturday morning. We'd also phone them up and ask if there were any tournaments going on that weekend, just to make sure that as much stuff as possible got into the pond the night before. I remember hauling a bench across the course just to throw that in as well. It all started when one golf prick had a go at us for crossing the golf course because it saved a huge walk around, so wrecking his precious golf course became a ritual.

    Football Manager 2017

    Fuck Football Manager. I've just started playing FM 2017 again and in my first season with Edinburgh City, I've just got them promoted through beating Stenhousemuir 6-5 in the playoffs after realising that away goals don't count double in the SPFL playoffs for some reason. I chucked the kitchen sink at them after losing the first leg 4-3 away from home, went up 2-0 at home, conceded straight away and then spent the next 70 minutes trying not to concede again while lobbing balls into their box and hoping to kill the game dead. Realised after 90 minutes that away goals didn't count double, and had to spend 30 minutes with a completely knackered team. Managed to win with the last kick of the ball too. That was after a ridiculous season when all the teams below me in the league kept dropping points so I managed to finish an easy 2nd in the league. I'm now addicted again and can't put it down. Bloody game. The chairman is a twat though, he 'offered' me a new contract for 2 years with a reduced salary even though I've just got the team promoted! Does he think I'm stupid?

    Last film you watched?

    Just watched Made in Britain - Trevor is absolutely frightening. Absolutely brilliant film though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLNpsf1k_Yw

    This really needs a thumbs up.
  8. Zen Arcade by Husker Du is an absolute must-listen IMO. New Day Rising is actually the better album, but Zen Arcade is just so influential in its own right.
  9. I agree with you, but imagine how it looked to see Jamesy berating and threatening someone who had seemingly done nothing and who didn't even know who Jamesy was? I had no dog in the fight, but it was unsettling to see how Jamesy was kicking off on someone who was an obvious victim of mistaken identity. Then when you get told through friends about how Jamesy's going to jump me if he sees me - it just added to my perception of him taking the internet way too seriously. Like you and Phil say, he wouldn't have done it - but it was surreal to be told this by different people, as it was obvious that he was at least telling people about it. In hindsight, it would have made more sense to go see him and sort it out face to face, but then it all went back to seeing him rage outside Moshulu. I wouldn't have blamed Ben for kicking off for some of the things people said about him, but I always had a lot of respect for him for not doing so. He might have been different among other people, but he was always decent around me, and I could never understand why a certain group of people were always insulting him behind his back. His online persona was one thing, but I always put that down to him being bored and enjoying a good wind-up. Hahaha, you're right, half the site did threaten something like that, but only two people seemingly took it seriously enough to pass threats on through other people. I wonder if anyone did actually physically fight over what was posted on here?
  10. Thinking back, Jamesy didn't do himself or MMW any favours at times. I remember him getting in someone's face outside Moshulu and threatening to give them a hiding, all because of some scene politics. The wise thing to do would have been to sit down with the guy over a beer, but instead he lost the plot and went way over the line. I didn't know the guy, but Jamesy made an absolute arse out of himself in front of a crowd of people. It wasn't the only time he responded with aggression as well - I remember being told by several different people that he was going to kick my head in over what I'd posted on here and that I should watch my back. I don't think he would have, but his temper really did get the better of him at times. I don't doubt his work ethic, but he was the worst example of taking the internet too seriously. Ben on the other hand never got involved in that stuff offline - I remember you'd normally find Ben in Moshulu just quietly drinking, and like you said, he never acted like a prima donna in public. He was also a good guy to a lot of young bands, but he never boasted about it on here or sang his own praises. I always had a lot of respect for him for that, because a lot of scene people were just nasty and spiteful towards young bands.

    What game are you currently playing?

    Hahahaha, that explains everything! Fortnite is just weird, there's no reason whatsoever to pay for anything, yet people spending huge amounts of cash on it. I don't get it.

    I've been playing Fortnite: Battle Royale for something to drop quickly in and out of, and it's astonishing how bad the players are. I can finish in the top 10 every time without any effort at all, and usually in the top 5. I'm not even any good at these games, but the other players are just bad.

    Wrestling Thread

    I watched it a few nights ago, and fucking hell, I could barely watch after the first couple of chairshots. I remember loving it at the time, but now? It just made me shudder, knowing how much damage was being done with each one.

    Aberdeen Celebrities!

    Kimmett is living in Fife, ripping people off a joiner as only Roger can do. https://www.yell.com/biz/roofing-joinery-and-renovations-7635150/ I miss the days of being at a party and him turning up unannounced and uninvited. It would almost always end in him a) harassing women and b) getting battered by someone for it.
  15. Peter, have you ever considered starting your own political party in order to take advantage of lavish donations from key supporters?
