    Formula One - 2019 Season

    Just finished watching. As always, I'm left baffled as to why Melbourne is the first race, it's a compete filler of a race (I mean it's obviously in the contract, but...) Mid field looks like it will be interesting. LeClerc should have been in for fresh tyres and fastest lap challenge, no way Ferrari were ordering Vettel to let him past as there was no chance of him catching Max. Valteri did an excellent job, great to see a deserving win without pathetic team orders robbing him of such a victory.. For now though, happy to wait for the real season begin in 2 weeks.

    Formula One - 2019 Season

    I have sky so probably not the best to comment on this but... I thought Sky were doing their own highlights stuff on one of their free to air channels, sky sports mix perhaps? .7 of a second... Not the best start to a season

    Switch - Too many ports?? (Ports Die Twice)

    I was a massive N64 fan at the time, having skipped the Playstation, and remember my friend buying Turok. We played some multiplayer, and played through a lot of the single player and I remember it being dull, and, well, fog of war. I had a lot more fun with Mission: Impossible on N64, which was at best, a forgetful game too.. The huge success of the resurrection of Crash Bandicoot, and even more so Spyro, both of which I never got on with - the latter, I felt was barely mediocre shows that it works I guess. Rayman still has the touch screen mode that the WiiU had. Is there anything else missing?

    Switch - Too many ports?? (Ports Die Twice)

    Too many ports? Surely it's simply a case of vote with your wallet - buy if you like, don't if you don't. The rate MK89D, NSMBWD, CTTT (did that have a D?) etc. have sold, I think the answer is obvious. Things like Turok - if you chose to buy an (imo) poor game in the first place, again, unchanged on another platform many years later, I hope you can get something out of it. Lazy ports are nothing new.

    Best one hit wonder of all time

    Oh.... and this: My dad was a fan of Journey, so they are a band I grew up with, I guess due to them being played in my youth, I never realised that they weren't all that popular in the UK anyway, not sure about elsewhere. I guess they are probably more known now than ever via Glee. It's a shame, imo anyway, that this is the only song that seems to get any recognition...

    Chvrches

    The Hansa Sessions EP version is similar . If you haven't listened to it, I recommend giving the EP a spimn (it's on Spotify), but then I'm a bit of a sucker for strings...

    Best one hit wonder of all time

    https://www.officialcharts.com/ is a nice little resource. By the thread rules, Pink Floyd are also out due to getting into the top 20 with a couple of songs from The Division Bell. Zep never hit the top 10, so are nothing, a zero hit wonder Chvrches are a nice modern example of this sort of thing too. (i'm not comparing them to Led Zep!) Music in games, used on TV, 3 albums, all in the top 10, how many singles in the top 40? 1 - peaking at number 38. I like the discussion of these album based artists, but the fact of the matter is, they didn't have (singles chart) a hit. I bet there are some that had no hits at the time, but due to changes in chart classification rules in more recent years, with downloads, they get there from a song used in a film / game / TV show...

    Nintendo Switch

    This in spades. Pro controller is completely unusable for Tetris, it's so frustrating. Folk above discussing the 8bitdo frankenpad for Tetris... I love mine, I played about 100 hours of XC2 on it, and most of Mario too, but in Tetris, I find it lags too much, though, there might be a firmware update available, I haven't checked.. I've been playing Tetris using the joycon direction 4 buttons, and don't hate it as a control mechanism - still a shame the masters of the d-pad haven't quite got this one right.

    New Nintendo mobile title: Dragalia Lost

    Well at least I know I'm not going to bother even attempting to play it on my 16gb iPhone SE

    Pokemon Go

    I managed 4 or 5 shiny from I don't know how many, but I was playing 2 phones, didn't start until after 11, and at that point, walked into town, so infrequent stops and had existing tasks to clear out, and I stopped at maybe 25 to 1 for a raid, and didn't do much post raid. It was fun, plenty of folk around and seemed more enjoyable than some of the other events, especially as I took it at more of a relaxed pace. Haven't evolved any yet, was hoping there was some sort of trick to guarantee one of each evolve.. Other than that, I'm in my usual PoGo lull, not been out doing raids, so only managed 1 Palkia, can't be bothered tbh.. Maybe when the weather is better..

    XBOX gamepass and Xbox app coming to switch?

    This is less of a concern for Microsoft. In the evolution from Xbox, to 360 to Xbox One, they've gone from "Only on Xbox" to "time exclusive to Xbox" to "Play anywhere / buy 1 licence for both Xbox and PC" so essentially, you can already not buy an Xbox and play virtually all those games on your PC. Am I right in thinking Microsoft have never made money on a console?

    Fils-Aime to retire, Bowser new president

    Reggie was great. So many happy memories of him pausing before and after an announcement with perfect precision. Happy retirement.

    The most beautiful song you ever heard

    I love this idea, and wish I'd come up with it myself. What a great idea. Oddly enough, I instantly knew the album, but it took me a couple of listens to decide which of 3 or 4 songs... On another note, why are some of the songs in the list not playable?

    Concerts - general discussion and experiences

    Haha, oops. You missed out on some quality banter at the Hydro, including Lauren (claiming that she was...) having Buckfast for the first time. They had the sound sorted for Glasgow and Newcastle, though Glasgow was perhaps a bit too loud - to the point that there was some speaker distortion, most notably during Science/Vision. It seems they also added 2 songs to the setlist for Glasgow (they didn't play them in Newcastle, and looking at the setlist.fm, Birmingham missed them out too) Good ones too - Tether and Never Ending Circles. Also, an excuse to post a couple of my better shots (via my instagram) Don't judge my tagging and cheesy lines, I don't get social media!

    Concerts - general discussion and experiences

    Saw them in Glasgow (SSE Hydro, so big venue) then again on Saturday in Newcastle (o2 Academy). Front row centre both nights and loved every moment, well except the backing act that I really didn't get (Let's Eat Grandma). I had no issues with the banter, but I guess more I'm fluent in Scottish West coaster... They had a second backing in Glasgow that I'm now hitting Spotify for, The Ninth Wave, sort of Interpol meets The Cure / new wave (don't hold me to that though!)
