  1. Ooops, sorry - just spotted this after I posted.
  2. LG Petrov from Entombed has an incurable form of cancer and is looking for some support https://www.gofundme.com/f/support-petrov A classic band to me - have rinsed their discography over the years. I hope his docs are able to keep the cancer under control
  3. Dali Speakers? Very nice - how do you like them?
  4. All the issues with the whole kit deal aside, that's quite a step-down in brand power there. I imagine that other potential large corporate sponsors just see the UFC as too volatile and it's extremely likely that your gear is going to be worn by people accused of some dreadful things - recent examples being rape, wife beating, racism, assault, doping etc. - who would likely still be in the UFC no matter what happens. It doesn't have the buzz it had a few years back about being the next huge sport. Not surprising if someone like Adidas or Nike don't fancy a punt.
  5. Just finished season 2. Yeah, it’s bloody brilliant. I love the absolute bastardry on display in every single scene. I don’t know who I hate-love most.
  6. NEW EP. US BROADCAST 24/05/20 Minor joke spoiler: We’re divorced now.
  7. I was really sad to hear about this yesterday. He was looking quite frail in recent appearances on Modern Family (though still being great). Like Spleen above, Best In Show is the one for me - one of my favourite films and with so many legendary comic actors on the cast, Fred Willard still comes away as the best thing in it. There was something about him which always cheered me up when he would appear on screen.
  8. You can use things like 1Password to handle the 2FA instead of your mobile too. Very convenient platform that. I know GTA V is the big one at the moment but I’m enjoying Death Coming from last week’s freebie. Cute pixel-art characters meeting untimely deaths and I zone out and click around the environment to kill them off. Strangely relaxing.
  9. Yeah, it crossed my mind alright but I thought not, considering a conversation that was had between Saul and Mike earlier on in the show. It would have been great if it did turn out like that though. One random question about the call in question:
  10. I suspect that Dana wanted to make ESPN/Disney make the call rather than they UFC doing it themselves. I've read something around how his motivation was to deliver whatever number of events they had promised so that that UFC earns the $750m in their contract with ESPN (and Dana still gets bonuses based on their financial performance too iirc). If ESPN pulled the plug, the UFC aren't the ones letting down their side of the bargain and would not be subject to penalty. Probably too simplistic but I don't know if a pandemic is something that would commonly be covered in a contract like that. This whole thing has been a bit horrible though - the paid-for 'mma journalists' going along with everything, the fan backlash against actual journalists and some fighters who called the whole thing a disgrace, the disappointment when fighter(s) you thought had some common sense comes out in support of Dana White's "leadership" (Michelle Waterson the most recent one I saw). It's one of those times where the UFC (and therefore MMA) does come across as knuckle-draggingly stupid and dodgy as a lot of people think it is. Whole thing is gross - hot shower required. Scott Coker and Bellator coming out of this with much more respect from their handling of the situation.
  11. I had to look it up to be sure but Fring’s Madrigal German friend shows up much later in the timeline in a scene that horrified me at the time. BB Spoiler likely not required but just in case...
  12. Does anyone know where (or if) I can buy a steam key for an ok price that will qualify me to get Doom 64 as well? CD Keys sell it for the Bethesda launcher but sod that, I have too many launchers already. Now is the perfect time for this game in my life. I rinsed the 2016 one many times.
  13. Ronan Farrow’s Catch and Kill is the 99p deal today https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07NGJD698/ref=mh_s9_acsd_hps_c2_x_0_i?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=mobile-hybrid-3&pf_rd_r=D6YFFNMZP3NJVQCSN7T3&pf_rd_t=1201&pf_rd_p=7fd5af5d-187b-4287-89b2-b9d5e96ebf9b&pf_rd_i=5400977031
  14. One of my favourite bands of all times - that album is amazing, though I have a lot of time for everything that came before, infernal love, suicide pact and semi-detached. The last time I saw them (2017?) was an acoustic show and it was brilliant. It was full of Andy's anecdotes like how he felt he was ripping off Helmet so much, he wanted Page Hamilton to play on Unbeliever and how they got him to come over to where they were living in Dun Laoghaire at the time.
  15. Watched the first episode - it was ok-ish. I think Mac and Cricket got me through to be honest but I'm willing to stick with it for a few episodes. Surprised to see zero interest here on the day of release.
