  1. So I knew it was Planescape, but is is pronounced plane-scape or plan-escape? I... just want to see if you guys get it wrong is all.
  2. Ahhh, I remember Cobra having a very cool poster (and Ocean game tie-in?) but I never had chance to watch. It looks dreadful!
  3. sound-cancelling headphones on public transport is my primary method nowadays. If all goes well then it's quite transforming.
  4. My kid (age 5) has been going through a very random scattering of CDs I've collected since I was about 15. Some of my wife's stuff in there as well, and he's now a fan of Gorillaz' first record, White Stripes, Mr Scruff... and Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd with Saucerful of Secrets. I have no idea what's going on for him there! I was pretty late to listening to Kanye West, I think that's the only one I can think of right now. Oh! And Swans.
  5. Yeah, Taylor getting given LBW when it was going over as well.. there's loads of fine margin things, just like most matches except this particular one seemed to have almost all of them in it. We can't know what would've happened if any of them had gone differently. Still, I bet the 'most boundaries' fallback will be ditched by next tournament (world t20 is it?). Maybe they'll just keep Super Overing until someone gives up. It could be like penalty shootouts that go on for ages, limit every player to one attempt each bowling/batting so you end up with fast bowlers facing the openers dibbly dobbers.
  6. haha. Actually from what I've seen online, by far the most saltiness seems to be coming from Australians rather than Kiwis. Weird! Ashes gonna be fun. NZ by contrast seem to be quite accepting of their poor luck.
  7. Aughhhh, my heart! What a fucking game, just crazy in so many ways.
  8. Big latter-era Metallica fans?
  9. King Cricket is pretty good on the Roy dismissal. https://www.kingcricket.co.uk/who-had-the-strongest-emotional-reaction-to-jason-roys-dismissal/2019/07/11/
  10. that was an absolute battering. Can't see Roy and Archer not being given a shot in the Ashes now (unless they take a beating from Ireland, anyway). God I'm excited for Sunday now. I've got my parents down visiting... but I also have an all venues staff pass so I'm trying to work out if I can escape for a bit and wander up to 'help' the guys working there.
  11. yeah Roy is unlucky and it's unjust. And given that reviews for caught have that whole ultra edge messing about, there's no way they could just do a simple yes/no quickly. The game is the game! Watched the three sixes already but will happily do it again, that third one was astonishing.
  12. The umpire should maybe be allowed to refer more decisions upstairs (though I fear they'd just refer almost everything, like they do with runouts now)... yeah, maybe not. The players are supposed to review based on it being a howler, not in hope of a lucky reprieve, Bairstow misjudged it and that's the price.
  13. It's one per match for everybody, Bairstow shouldn't have wasted it. I fucking said it right after he did that to the guy sitting next to me, we're gonna cop a bad one and not be able to review now. Dang, I was looking forward to Roy bashing these last runs off in fine style.
  14. It's not exactly gentlemanly but I do hope Starc is feeling below-par and sore and all that. If we get through the first powerplay without much damage then this game is done. heh. I can't really type it with a straight face.
  15. Also need Maxwell to do as normal and get out quick, if he goes big and stays in it's a bit like when Buttler kicks off. Basically I can't relax about Australia at all at any point
