  1. Nope - someone asks you a question (which you recently saw on Eggheads) and you tell them the answer, and they ask how you know, and you say "well, you see...", tell them the background behind it and you look very clever. Compare that to, say, seeing a question on Sudo-Q or something. You tell someone this bit of trivia and they say "how do you know?" and you say "err... I just do" or "I saw it on Sudo-Q". You don't look so clever. Personally, I just take all knowledge as input, like Johnny 5.
  2. Of course, I forgot it's actually illegal to not like the Beatles.
  3. Well it certainly won't be a problem NOW! I daresay I could have found that if I'd bothered googling it. Cheers anyway, though.
  4. Haha! That programme was fantastic. In all fairness to the boy, he was the only one out of the three that didn't make a very convincing girl.
  5. See, that's a nice concept, but it's a shame they couldn't have made it track 11 so that I could just not rip it onto my hard disk or iPod. I reckon at the moment, Rendition, Imperial Bodybags and Indian Summer are my favourite tracks. But they're all fucking phenomenal. I've even grown to completely adore Underdogs (what a fucking chorus) and YLAINE.
  6. Let's not turn this into a "why the Beatles are actually shit" debate, eh?
  7. Until he loses the next election, is forced to give up the leadership, and one of the so-called Ultra Blairites takes up the mantle...?
  8. The White Album is one of the Wire's favourite albums. What is it they used to say? "We are the only band that reserves the right to contradict ourselves." It's fucking pointless though. The lowpoint on what is otherwise easily their best album since The Holy Bible. In fact, I'd even go as far as to say only The Holy Bible and Generation Terrorists beat it, and I fucking love Gold Against The Soul. Why do bands insist on putting "secret" tracks on albums? It even says in the fucking sleevenotes "Secret track: Working Class Hero by John Lennon". So now, when I listen to Winterlovers, I have to either listen to a minute of silence, or fast forward, which is a minor but annoying inconvenience. Not only that, but if i want Winterlovers on my iPod, I have to put fucking Working Class Hero on it too. AND IT'S NOT EVEN THAT GOOD A SONG!
  9. Bulgaria's song is easily the best of this year's lot. Although Ukraine's one (written by Trey Spruance) is rather fun. YouTube - Eurovision 2007 - Ukraine Did you know Ricky Maritn was singing Greece's one? YouTube - Eurovision Greece 2007: Sarbel - Geia Sou Maria Sweden obviously watched the MacDonald Brothers' rendition of Shang A Lang a bit too much YouTube - Sweden Eurovision 2007, The Ark, The worrying kind Poland do American "r'n'b" better than the Americans Looking up Eurovision entries on youtube gets boring after a while. Bulgaria to win, though.
  10. The best thing about CJ is that he's the second worst on the show (I don't think even Judith would try to make people believe she's a trivia heavyweight), yet he is always the most animated when other people get questions wrong, and you just think "shut the fuck up, you wouldn't have got it either". Chris is a know-it-all, and pretty smug with it. But at the same time, I think he plays it up a wee bit - the exchanges he has with Dermot about trains or whatever always seem like he is willingly having the piss ripped out of him. Also he at least realises he's shit at showbiz. Daphne is a sweet old lady who just happens to know tons. You'd have to be a knob to dislike her. Kevin is a man who just happens to know fucking everything and realises that a lot of people who watch the show are trivia fans, and would therefore LIKE to know the trivia behind questions - also it avoids the big pause which effectively say "how do you know it's that answer?" He's not smug, he just tells you the answer. He doesn't say "Oh THIS is the answer, because of this, this and this - if you don't know that you're an IDIOT!!" like CJ does. I'd say thinking otherwise smacks of jealousy a wee bit. Anyway, he had a fantastic tasche on mastermind.
  11. With the exception of maybe a dozen songs, that's like the soundtrack of hell for me. Thought the NME would know more than 10 bands, though. Even their older bands are a bit... well "calm the beans, min". TWO Pixies songs? Whatever. Surprised one of them wasn't Debaser since everyone seems to absolutely love it for some reason. Bit random considering the rest of the list is Britpop & whatever-the-fuck-you-call-the-current-crop-of-shite-bands-pop. Obviously didn't want to put TOO many actual Pixies songs in.
  12. Exactly. But only because the VAST majority of Britpop was utter shite too. Even then, most of the "exceptions" were merely bunged into the Shitpop category for convenience, ie Manics, Suede and Pulp (the only good lyricists of that time - there's a shock...). Does anyone else find it impossible to NOT sing Brimful Of Asha whenever Same Jeans comes on the radio? Thieving little runts. They stole the verse AND the chorus. Oh yes, it's easy to "write" catchy tunes when you're just stealing them off other people.
  13. Perhaps Donald Trump can be convinced to build a suite of rehearsal rooms with the golf course...?
  14. Shite sound, mind. But it was good if you got the last slot of the day and could basically stay as long as you wanted, having a laugh at the latest recordings on the PC. Lofi is a fucking paradise: CD burners, decent amps (if you can't be bothered lugging your own about), good sound, spare instruments, clean rooms, and best of all..... AIR CONDITIONING. With a remote control, at that. And all for 8 an hour. The guy that runs it is sound too. You can practise in Glasgow for as little as 3.50 an hour (depending on time of day, obviously). And none of the places we've been in thus far have been anything less than the standard of Musical Vision, So there really is no excuse for the high prices in Aberdeen, unless there's just no great demand for practise time - Glasgow practise places are always packed, but then it is a bigger city than Aberdeen with even MORE shitey bands.
