  1. Maybe she felt her character in 1 & 2 was a bit of a one dimensional love interest but this new movie will give her a more up front, well written and meaningful role? With TW directing it's got every chance of being something great.
  2. Thor: The Dark World is atrocious. Possibly the worst film in the MCU.

    Great CD Revival

    Good choice - The Warp 10 collection (and the 20 Recreated & 20 Chosen comps) are in my "keep" collection

    Great CD Revival

    Anyone fancy an instant CD collection of around 120 albums for the cost of postage, plus a tenner to charity? I've finally ripped a shed of load of stuff to FLAC and sorted my age old CD collection into stuff to keep and stuff to get rid of. I'm keeping quite a lot of stuff, but anything that I have no emotional attachment to is going. The stuff in my discogs "Get Rid Of" folder is up for grabs. Surprisingly enough, it's not actually full of crap. OK, there's a couple of Coldplay albums and an album by Hard-Fi (who?) but there's actually some decent artists like Public Enemy, Jurassic 5, Aphex Twin, Ash, Avalanches, Doves, Ladytron, RATM, Gorillaz, Boom Bip, Pulp, Tori Amos, The Smiths etc. I haven't weighed it all yet but it should cost a tenner to ship in the UK. So that's 20 quid for 120 albums. I posted this here instead of the "for free" thread as I'd rather it went to someone who actually might use them rather than just try and flip them and make 25p on each one. Established posters in this thread will get first dibs, I don't really want to split it or post out individual CDs. Have the lot or it's going to the charity shop. Feel free to dispose of any you don't want once they're yours.

  5. That's because we were all too preoccupied by the moon disappearing out of earth's orbit.

    I'm keeping my old stuff separate from the new too. I've bought quite a bit on discogs over the last couple of years and some of it has that classic "old record" smell. I'm not planning on labelling the dividers, unless I can find a way to do it that look neat

    I just stuck a strip of 1” x 1” timber to the rear of the compartment so that my records hit a stop. I used sticky fixing pads.
  8. This album is worth a listen, not quite old school but certainly got that feel to it:
  9. I hope Horizon Chase plays well because it looks fairly bland. I thought the polygon graphics looked quite nice at first but after a couple of minutes it's all a bit sparse. There's left & right turns and a few dips but it's all a bit underwhelming. I was getting quite excited for an arcade racer. Where's the crazy buildings, bridges & canyons? It's the same stuff all the way through with slightly different colours as the game progresses. I haven't written it off, just pinning my hopes on this as I hate Football in general so PES has no appeal whatsoever. I was watching this video if it matters:

    I really need to organise my vinyl collection. I've got all my old stuff from years ago, then a big gap when CDs ruled the world and my turntable was boxed up in the loft, and then a load of stuff from the last 4 years which consists of discogs binges where I've bought loads of hip-hop and house 12"s from yesteryear plus loads of new stuff including loads of 12"s from the Juno sale or sites like Bandcamp & Swervingthecommunity. It's all in Kallax shelving but in no particular order so I'm going to try and sort it. I'm probably going to avoid mixing new and old stuff as there's a real gap between them so I'm thinking first of all by genre for the older 12"s. Back in the day it was easy, hip hop and house (which included pretty much anything electronic including techno, electro, acid etc) There were some other sub-genres like hip-house but it was still fairly simple. Newer stuff is a bit different as I've no idea what genres for electronic music are these days, I just buy stuff I like in the Juno sale or from Bandcamp but don't understand what the difference between the latest incarnations of electro/techno/deep house and tech house are. I think my later 12"s will just be alphabetical in artist order. Albums will be separate, again alphabetical order. Some artists (Depeche Mode mainly) will have their own section. That'll be split into album & 12", sorted by release date obviously CPU Records will get their own category as I've got a lot of their 12"s and expect to buy more. My plan is to keep it simple and use dividers - There's a few plastic ones available but they're a bit too "record shop" for me. I'm going for a plywood option. I got a couple of these to see what they're like and they are pretty good https://www.juno.co.uk/products/mukatsuku-wooden-12-vinyl-record-divider-with/730209-01/ There are others on Amazon/eBay with laser marked letters/genres but they're expensive. These are plain but seem quite well made (they're flat and have no sharp edges). I've ordered a couple of five packs plus the two I have so that gives me 12 in total which should do the job - I'm not bothered about going to the level of detail of one per letter of the alphabet. Next step is to get it all listen on discogs. That might take a while.

    The electronica thread

    The Bjork remix set on NTS2 is pretty good too.
  12. I thought this thread was about Time Pilot, the early 80s Konami arcade time travelling shoot em up.

    Sounds like you’d like the classic Technics models (SL-1500 for example) Have you looked locally on eBay/gumtree?
