  1. My boy started playing this today and the game advised to use RB and LB etc, in the opening tutorial bit. Presumably it was changed in the update we initially installed.
  2. That’s amazing amc. Sounds like you were right in it around the time it peaked. I actually watched that Altern-8 video yesterday! A lot of people have probably seen this video from Fantasia NYE1993 as seems to do the rounds on social media quite regularly. It definitely captures a moment though. The girl who features prominently in it appeared in the comments of it on Facebook once. Seems she eventually came down and is a Home Counties mother in her forties now.
  3. Do we have a thread for this? I’ll put this video from Shelley’s in 1992 here anyway. 3.50 onwards in particular. I found this on the recent BBC doc Everybody In The Place and it sent me off on a massive nostalgia trip. You could never recreate this. So ephemeral. The moment is precious. Maybe I’m talking to myself.
  4. Just realised that 50 years ago today 3 humans were three quarters of the way to the moon, so surely the Apollo update must be released by now. *checks Apple Music* yup, there it is. First impressions are good - more of the same really. The original release has been a constant companion to me so it will be interesting to see how the rest slots in.
  5. Tell your flat mate that Amazon now have it in stock again for delivery tomorrow (unless you’ve already sorted it).

    Anyone got a Walkman I can borrow?

    Aphex Twin

    The same programme had me ordering an Aphex logo car sticker (said I'd never get a car sticker). Guess you're more committed than me.
  8. Someone in Gatwick air traffic control tower was having fun today. (Not sure if this’ll mean anything to anyone).

    Aphex Twin

    Nice little piece. Thanks for the heads up Mr Do. Just ordering Aphex Twin logo sticker for my car. Thought it might be a nice touch to look less dull and executive and little nod to those who know.
  10. +1. Seemed very affable to me. I particularly liked his reference to his 8 year-old son's encyclopaedic knowledge of Mario. I've got a similar 7-year-old. I swear you could ask him the most obscure question about some ancient Mario game and he'd answer it as well as provide loads of related factoids. I have no idea where he gets it all from.
  11. That second vid I'd seen before but forgotten and it hit me again just now like the first time. Beach House album is definitely growing on me now. Black Car is a current favourite. Thanks for heads-up re: DJ Koze FP, excited about getting stuck into that. Is it just me or has loads of great stuff come out in the last few days?... and I'm still to give the Daniel Avery album a proper listen. (..and I actually really like the Arctic Monkeys one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) Other brilliant album of 2018 for me is Bicep's. (edit: oh, that's from 2017 - still it hasn't got anywhere near enough love in this forum as it should.)
  12. Yes, Stanley- this Jon Hopkins album. I’m listening to it on a train platform with all the suited commuters on my way to a floatation tank appointment and getting tingles like it’s a rave in 1991. It’s absolutely brilliant. Guy’s a genius. Re: the Beach House album. I’ve given it a couple of listens (following your surprise heads-up on Sunday) and I’m not feeling it as much as many seem to be. I loved Teen Dream and Bloom and so far this isn’t in the same league but I’ll persevere.
  13. A friend of mine wrote this which I thought was nicely put and seems to reflect some of the feelings in this thread.
  14. They're published on tweets/social media etc. Easiest way is probably to look at 'news' on your Switch.
