  2. ooh, yes. I heard a cover version of the Only Ones Another planet on tv advert last night. But its been toned down and turned in to an easy listening number. arrghhhh! When I find out who's done this, torture and death will be too good for them. pete inthehills
  3. get radicalised to get in to the mood, this link takes you to many downloadable Billy Bragg gigs over the last 8-10 years. Its ace. I can't wait for him to come now. http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3Aetree%20AND%20%2Fmetadata%2Fcreator%3A%22Billy%20Bragg%22 pete inthehills
  4. yeah, good call. check out www.spaceweather.com and http://www.dcs.lancs.ac.uk/iono/aurorawatch/ to see if there might be auroras too. but you'll need clear dark skys and not too much light pollution. pete inthehills
  5. woo-hoo they've unblocked it! seems they accidently clicked on the ultimate protection option and now they've put it back the way it was and I can get aberdeen music again. These three days have been a trial. I had to work for the entire time. 7.5 hours of work. Every day! Nightmare. but now I'm back. did ya miss me? pete inthehills
  6. Oddly enough, I can still access you tube which I would have thought was worse for eating up band width. Next they'll ban hotmail, ebay and then there'll be nothing to surf for. pete inthehills
  7. Cheers Keilan! I'll give it a go and see if I can make it work. I'm probably breaking some kind of rules, but hey, what are they going to do? Sack me!? too late. I got out first. pete inthehills
  8. wash your mouth out with soap! what a thing to say! anyway, I've quit my job and I only have a month to go so I was going to muck around for a month, but maybe, just maybe and its only a maybe, maybe I will have to work. pete inthehills
  9. ...'cos work have blocked it! BASTARDS! I posted this morning with no problems, I went back in the afternoon and I got the dreaded message. This site has been blocked by websense, if you need it for work consult your line manager. Arrgghhh. what am I going to do at work now? pete inthehills
  10. Life of Pi What can I say about this book? its just bloody brilliant. Read it, even if it isn't picked as a review book. pete inthehills Some books defy categorisation: Life of Pi, the second novel from Canadian writer Yann Martel, is a case in point: just about the only thing you can say for certain about it is that it is fiercely and admirably unique. The plot, if thats the right word, concerns the oceanic wanderings of a lost boy, the young and eager Piscine Patel of the title (Pi). After a colourful and loving upbringing in gorgeously-hued India, the Muslim-Christian-animistic Pi sets off for a fresh start in Canada. His blissful voyage is rudely interrupted when his boat is scuppered halfway across the Pacific, and he is forced to rough it in a lifeboat with a hyena, a monkey, a whingeing zebra and a tiger called Richard. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Life-Pi-Yann-Martel/dp/184195392X/sr=8-1/qid=1163414986/ref=pd_ka_1/203-3622525-6665558?ie=UTF8&s=books
  11. I always go to gigs alone. don't be afraid to go to gigs alone. Once you are there you are standing in a crowd of folk who think as you do. and you missed a really really fucking ace gig! heheh. pete inthehills
  12. that was a fucking brilliant gig, crowd surfing, inane banter, pogoing, just fucking brilliant. I'm still buzzing now. best gig this year for me. so tell me...heyheyheyheyheyheyheyhey do you want to drink some alcohol? pete inthehills
  13. I've just finished Life of Pi by Yann Martel which is a story about a 16 year old Indian boy who is the sole surviver from a ship sinking and is stuck on a life boat with a zebra, hyena, orang-utan and a bengal tiger, but ultimately just him and the tiger. It is very very cool. pete inthehills
  14. I'm going to splash out on a new lap top. It'll just be used for surfing the net from the living room, playing a few simple games, updating my website. Nothing too special. But I do want wireless connection to the interweb. What is the minimum spec I should ask for? whats a good general laptop? pete inthehills
  15. I'm confused. Free? what? for no money? Are they doing a full set or just a couple of songs? when are they on stage? what is this liquid place and why does the name fill me with fear? pete inthehills
  16. My stupid computer will no longer play music cd's. I can access files on a data cd, but when I put a music cd nothing happens. It used to ask me if I wanted to play it, but no longer. When I use windows explorer and check the cd drive its just blank and doesn't see the cd. Can anyone think of a fix? pete inthehills
  17. Salad and orange juice? Oooh get you ducky! pete inthehills
  18. oh yes please, get them. I'd go. My, brother, knows, Karl Marx, He met him eating mushrooms in the peoples park, He said 'What do you think about my manifesto?' 'I like a manifesto, put it to the test-o.' Took it straight down to meet the anarchist's party. I met a groovy guy, he was arty farty, He said 'I know a little latin man a cus man a kai' I said 'I don't know what it means' he said 'neither do I' Eat natural foods, bathe twice daily, Fill your nostrils up with gravy. Don't drink tea and don't drink coffee. Cover your chin in yorkshire toffee. Dancing in the disco, bumper to bumber, Wait a minute, where's me jumper, ( x4 ) Dancing at the disco, bumper to bumber, Wait a minute, where's me jumper ? ( x5 ) Oh no. Dancing at the disco, go, go, go. Dancing at the disco, oh no, oh no, oh no. Dancing at the disco, go, go, go. Dancing at the disco, oh no, oh no. It's alright to say things can only get better, You haven't lost your brand new sweater. I know I had it on when I had my tea, And I'm sure I had it on in the lavatory. Oh no. Dancing in the disco, go, go, go. Dancing in the disco, oh no, oh no. Dancing in the disco, bumper to bumper, Wait a minute, where's me jumper ? ( x5 ) It's alright to say things can only get better, You haven't lost your brand new sweater. Pure new wool, and perfect stitches, Not the type of jumper that makes you itches Oh no. Dancing in the disco, go, go, go. Dancing in the disco, oh no, oh no. And my mother, will be so, so angry. And my brother, will be so, so angry. And my girlfriend, will be so, so angry. And my dog, will be so, so angry. Cos I was dancing at the disco, bumper to bumper. Wait a minute, where's me jumper ( x5 ) Oh no !
  19. where in aberdeen can I get a decent pair of black jeans. Proper rockers black jeans. All the cliches required. Skinny legs, pockets big enough for money, phone and keys. They need to be a) resistant to multiple pint spillages b) stay black after several washes c) able to take me home at the end of a night d) cheap! pete inthehills
  20. thong nudity in 2fast2furious! I like the sound on that! I think there should be more thong nudity in this world. (thinks for a bit about this) but then again. perhaps not. pete inthehills
  21. I hope this works. This is as far as I've got. http://shygypsy.com/farm/p.cgi?state=bacbaaaaaaaaabacaaaaaaaaaaabacaaaeabiaaadaabaeeaaaaaaaaaacccaaaaaopiaaaaibaaeaaaaaaaaaagaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa&style=tbwsuqapatcyrasbufpssztrtbffctzwxxzepvwezswyrxgcbygzpqxezuhusohbacrcccah&i=2&j=1&cmd=guess&guess=+ Chris, I hold you personally responsible for the neglect of our horses, cats and small holding. The loss of what few social skills I had and the fact that the only pleasure I now have is getting a new word. thanks for that! the Barn one and the farmer one are still doing my nut. pete dribbling inthe hills.
  22. Halloween is so ace. I wish we could have one every year pete inthehills
  23. should we just start posting the correct words on this thread or is that going to be cheating? pete inthehills
  24. I'd rather they got the bloody trains working. I sat on a crowded train for 30 minutes this evening waiting for them to get it to work. After a hard day in the city, I don't need any delays getting back to my hills. spend the money on trains not buildings. pete inthehills
  25. It warms the cockles of my heart to see folk having such good taste at such an early age. Where are the westlife gigs? Chris De burgh? Johnny hates Jazz? there must be some embarrassing gigs hidden in your closets. pete inthehills
