    Quick Questions

    I presume you're talking about Shayna Baszler. She's a former MMA fighter, EX-UFC. She'd fuck you up.

    Quick Questions

    Yes another one. They have a fucking ten year deal with the Saudis. Surprising for a company that makes such a huge deal of its philanthropy to get in bed with the Saudis but I guess money talks. No women again, and all the old farts wheeled out, DX v Undertaker and Kane, Kurt Angle, Hulk Hogan rumoured. They're under pressure to cancel this one though on the back of that dead journalist. They're having a women-only PPV next month to make up for it.

    Allegedly he also asked for The Ultimate Warrior and Yokozuna, and that's why they had a random sumo wrestler at the last one... Because he looked a bit like Yokozuna. You couldn't make this up.

    Quick Questions

    It's for the uocoming show in Saudi Arabia. The Prince there is paying them $10m to come and do a PPV there and gave them a list of all the wrestlers he wanted... But he hasn't watched wrestling since the attitude era and half the people on the list are dead. Shawn Michaels is getting $1m for one match.

    Quick Questions

    I think I've met my landlord twice, I've lived in this house 7 years. He only lives an hour or so down the road as well. Suits me fine tbh. When anything breaks he tells me just to get it fixed and take it off the rent.

    Last film you watched?

    Doesn't have to be new, just tell us the last film you watched and what you thought of it. Last night I watched "Girl With A Pearl Earring". I knew nothing about the movie, knew nothing about the painting (in fact I didn't even know it was a real painting until it tells you at the end) and I really only bought it because it's got Scarlett Johansen in it. And would you nae? Anyway, despite some of the dialogue being pretty old fashioned and occasionally difficult to follow it was a pretty enjoyable movie. It built up a lot of chemistry between the dowdy but beautiful maid (Johansen) and the great painter (and master of the house) Vermeer (played by Colin Firth) without actually showing anything happen between them apart from the most subtle of things. It's visually stunning, set in the wintertime in Holland in the 1600s, and though the story moves a little slowly it was still one of those movies that you can't take your eyes off. Really enjoyed it. thumbs up

    Also Killer Legends, a Netflix doc where a guy investigates the source of urban legends involving murder to if there's any truth to them. It sounds good but it isn't.

Year 9 of the Aberdeen Music Celebrity Dead Pool is now open for entries! THE RULES: Pick 20 different celebrities who are alive, but who, in your opinion, will no longer be with us by 31st December 2018. Nominate one of them as your "joker". For each celeb demise that you guess correctly, you'll score points, and if your joker sadly passes away, your grief will be alleviated by the fact that you'll score double points. The team with the most points at the end of the year will be deemed the winner. In the event of a dead heat on points, the winner will be selected according to the following criteria, applied in this order: -The most picks -The youngest average age of picks. OTHER RULES: All of your chosen celebs must be: -Human. -At least 18 years old at time of selection. -Not on any form of "Death Row" or scheduled for execution. -Actual real-life people, not characters out of soap operas and the like. -Notable enough to have their own Wikipedia page (if they were part of a band, mentioned on the band's Wikipedia page). It's your responsibility to check this. I'm not looking up 300 people on Wikipedia. -Date of birth and date of death must be verifiable. -Named individuals, not just "Pope Wotsisface" or "the oldest person in the world". All times and dates will relate to local time at place of death Teams to be submitted to me via PM on here, or you can email or Facebook message me if you so desire. CLOSING DATE - JANUARY 21ST. Any teams submitted after the closing date may be considered but may be subject to a penalty. You will start earning points from the day your team is submitted, so best be quick.

    What game are you currently playing?

    I have a memory card loaded with ROMs on my DS, but it only plays DS games.
  13. In the vein of "Last Film You Watched" / "Your Current Read" / "What CDs have you been buying recently?" etc. I finished up Marvel: Ultimate Alliance last night (though still need to go back through and get some of the unlocks). I picked it up second hand in HMV for a fiver and it was well worth it, got a good month of casual gaming out of it, though being 5 years old it looks kinda dated. Got a start on Batman Arkham City this morning. Initial impression is that everything seems a bit smoother and quicker than the first game, but the menus etc are more complicated. It's going to take a bit of getting used to. I LOVED the first game... So, what are you playing?

    Has a song ever made you cry?

    Come the end of days it'll just be me, you, Soda Jerk and 100 bots.

    Has a song ever made you cry?

    My phone is on silent 99% of the time, I don't even know what my ringtone is. I don't know why there's so much spam. Plus, my phone rings about once a month because who actually phones people? Yuck.

  18. We got offered the opening slot for this, supporting two touring bands I'd never heard of. The promoter gave us tickets to sell but it was a weeknight and they were like a tenner a pop and none of my mates fancied it, I guess it was the same for the other guys. Tbh we didn't really make much effort to sell tickets, assuming that the touring bands, a screamo band and a hardcore band would probably sell loads, and we just hadn't heard of them because we're all too old. Cut to gig day. We turn up for soundcheck. "How many tickets did you sell?" asks the promoter. Me- "Honesty, none. Sorry. We've a few said they might pay at the door. How many are sold altogether?" Promoter - "None." Me - "So we've sold 0 tickets?" Promoter - "That is correct." Cut to a couple hours later and we take to the stage in Moshulu to a crowd consisting of two people from my office, my girlfriend and our drummer's wife. Tell you something, Moshulu looks fucking big when you're playing to four people. We still got paid, somehow. I felt bad taking it.

    Worst gig you ever played.

    Sounds like The Elizabethan (aka The Lizzy to the initiated), although I've never heard of bands playing there. Was it next door to a Chinese and the Fire Station?

    Worst gig you ever played.

    The Swanny, Fish n Things, ETs (even with the manky red sauce), The Grill, all excellent chippers. Fish n Things was our regular hangout age 13/14 because they had one of those arcade machines with 6 games on it, (including Final Fight and Wrestlemania), a 5p bandit, and hot dogs for £1.

    The Leisure Centre? I played a hilarious gig there a few years ago.

    Worst gig you ever played.

    Many of these worst gig anecdotes begin with "I was so pished". It's almost like there's a lesson there

    I can confirm Zanre's is now Kobani Chicken.

    I think Zanres is gone.
