  1. I'm sorry to say you are SO wrong. Going camping this week so planning to pack Castles of Burgundy, the Space Hulk card game, Pit, Greedy Wizards, Pandemic, Viticulture, and Fumie no Tame ni. What will actually happen is that I'll pack half of those and my wife will refuse to play any of them. I reckon I'll get a good game of Greedy Wizards in with my daughter though.
  2. I think the margins between the top sides are so fine now that there will be a lot of ref-related sour grapes during the world cup. I also think Wales look like they are in the best position of all the northern hemisphere sides going into the world cup: England always seem capable of imploding and always seem to have it in them to revert to a big-man game that other sides find it easy to deal with; Ireland seem completely off the boil to me and their reliance on structured play seems a little out of step with the top sides; Scotland and France haven't shown much to suggest they'll suddenly turn into world-beaters in Japan. But you only have to look at the results over the past couple of weekends to see that anything could happen in Japan. So Fiji to win it, obviously.

    Is there any way of somehow setting up my internet so it never ever shows me anything to do with Nick Kyrgios ever again? He is the most boring professional sportsperson on the planet but somehow there seems to be a news article about him being a douchebag every single day. It's worse than the trolls in the Labour thread.
  4. So there are actual - ACTUAL - news stories today about the 'Bruce Lee' controversy in this film. The controversy is apparently that Tarantino had the temerity to depict a fictional character managing to achieve some sort of parity in a fight with the fictional representation of a real-life martial arts actor. Pakistan and India are on the verge of war; right wing thugs are on the march across Europe; an unelected bigot is attempting to decimate Britain for the personal gain of his personal coterie; and a racist president is making a mockery of democracy in the US of A. But some journalists have seen fit to consider it as actual news - ACTUAL NEWS - that the outcome of a fictional fight, between a fictional character and a fictional interpretation of a real-life character, has upset some real-life people. We are all deeply, deeply fucked.
  5. Wow, that Vietnam documentary is really fucking good isn't it? Also watching Dawn Wall after a recommendation in the health and fitness thread and currently enjoying it more than Free Solo.

    Last time I was in London I popped out for lunch with some chums at Chapeldown Gin Works, near Kings Cross and had a smashing time. They do wine and beer but have recently moved into gins and vodkas, and they have some pretty good stuff, as well as a pretty tasty and affordable food menu. Lots of thumbs up, would get delightfully tipsy there again.
  7. I am going to do baked potatoes two ways.
  8. I'm going to stay in a cabin next week which comes with a couple of wood-burning stoves. These ones, to be precise: https://sweetgrass.jp/stoves/st1010 https://sweetgrass.jp/stoves/st1006 Does anybody have any suggestions for what to cook on it? Bonus points for recipes that don't require any refridgerised ingredients because the cabin has no refridgeriser and we'll be there for three days. We were thinking of making some pizza bases and freezing them at home and bringing them plus toppings in an ice-box for the first night's dinner. I was thinking of some sort of combination of bread/eggs/cheese for breakfasts. And maybe a dutch oven roast at some point. Any other pointers for recipes or just general advice about these things?
  9. Smashing to see Mike brown dropped. Much as it would be better to have him on the pitch so his ridiculous douchebaggery would benefit England's opponents its glorious to see him dropped specifically for being such a prick. Also just picked up some tickets for England USA in Kobe. Had been hoping there would still be some available for Ireland Japan but obviously not so gonna take a trip out to Kobe via the yamanashi wine cave while my folks are over. EXCITING.
  10. World cup looking increasingly hard to call!
  11. Yeah, I'm sure it will strike a chord with a lot of people. Just didn't for me. I think it got a great write-up in The Guardian or somewhere too, so I was looking forward to it. It seemed to occupy a very similar space to Legion for me, but I thought Legion did a better job in a lot of different ways.
  12. Really enjoyed both seasons of this (although the opening of the second season felt a bit like I was watching something that might have been aired on CITV back in the 90s). But I'm super disappointed that it shows no sign of wrapping up. I've got no interest in watching yet another series just tail off into boring plotlines that are eked out just to keep a series alive for as long as possible.
  13. Thanks, I tried this but did not get on with it. Thought the first episode was really interesting, but every subsequent episode just didn't seem to go anywhere except for down deliberately kooky culs-de-sac.
  14. I think I thought the same when I bought fire in the lake but ended up paying shipping fees to Japan. I think they ended up about 20-30 bucks or something. I can check but you might be better off checking boardgamegeek which I think has a thread about European shipping...
