    You’d have to be pretty defeated to look at the starting eleven today and not be excited to see what it does.
  2. These quad bikers thought they could go for a joyride without the proper safety equipment, but now they'll have all the skid marked helmets they can handle. In the showers of the county jail.
  3. I did laugh when Gary Neville condemned Tarkowski's challenge as having no place in the game. Bit rich coming from a bloke who kicked so much shit out of Antonio Reyes he effectively ended his career in English football.
  4. It's just inconsistency innit. If you go back through those dismissals there's three for bad tackles, two of which were given as yellows initially and one from Xhaka which is one you kind of have to give so no complaints there. The rest are stupid letter of the law incidents where we've been shocking at the back and dragged people down, or when Leno punched the ball outside his box for some reason. This Arsenal team are laughably soft but seem to get the book thrown at them at every opportunity. None of them were as bad as challenges Pogba and Tarkowski didn't even get booked for. I think it's a delicate line to tread for Arsenal journalists to criticise officials when the facts are we have picked up a lot of reds. Arseblog made a good go of it the other day that's worth a read, and really it was more a point about the ridiculous edicts that get delivered each season by the PGMOL that last a few games. None of it seems to be codified, but tackles from the back and follow throughs now seem to be fine as long as it 'keeps the game flowing', whatever that means. I think a lot of people can see the iceberg coming, notably Klopp a few weeks ago.
  5. The vocal on this is raw like sashimi. No excuse not to get loose.
  6. Up tempo slap-up funk to test your stamina.
  7. More Life is a really good listen and touched on an unexpected palette of sounds. As a megastar I don't think he'd ever be capable of doing something as brash and daring as Kanye West is able to do stood on his head, but he's a lot more interesting than he needs to be.
  8. My friend's friend played at PGA and Korn Ferry level events and apparently hated every moment of being a golfer, which he said was incredibly common. The travelling and pressure is immense and despite being minted he sacked it off to go and work on a building site in Australia or something. I think he just liked the outdoors.
  9. On that note, this one is an absolute bomb. The vocal is ridiculous. Funk diss track. Big anti-space program stomper.
  10. To this day I’ve no idea why he did that or what his motivation was, the guy was an absolute roaster. Was always blowing his top about something. From memory he could have easily had three straight reds in that game. Like I think he slapped two players and also stamped on Van Persie’s head, which in retrospect does redeem him somewhat. Mad bastard somehow played for Real too. Crazy.
  11. That boogie stuff goes for massive money now. Probably been sat in shops for years going for pennies! There’s an amazing one by Beckie Bell that Kerri Chandler has on his DJ Kicks that’s killer too, and extremely expensive. Those French comps are brilliant though and all three are packed with good stuff. Here’s another nice Tiny Desk. This dude did the original of Kanye’s best track Father I Stretch My Hands amongst other masterpieces of gospel and it’s so amazing he’s still at it.
  12. They could both quite easily be true or absolute complete bollocks – the beauty of Dicky James!
  13. Such an amazing voice. I was thinking a few months ago that alongside Musical Freedom it would make a perfect emotional, out of lockdown summer of togetherness anthem.

    No excuses with that line-up now, that looks seriously interesting. Massive 6 pointer basement battle.
  15. That is some debut. Can see why Spurs wanted Vieira as coach too. Got Palace purring and has a pedigree of winning the league at the Lane too.
  16. I will say off the bat that despite the name the beloved soul thread is a broad church and accepts all varieties of music that put a dip in your hip and a glide in your stride. Funk being a cornerstone of that content. It’s not for me to say, but feel free to get stuck in there too.
  17. That show is so good, they’ve got such a great knack for mimicry. Do yourself a favour and look up Speedo Cops too.
  18. I'm really hoping Don't Look Up is doing something more with that cast than a simple climate change allegory. McKay certainly likes to hammer home a point so could see that getting a bit tiring.
  19. They're much better than you remember, definitely. There's so many truly bad, pointless sections of the second one, but they're peppered between some really nice stuff too so it does keep you hanging on. It's a massive shame the long boring talking bits were so horribly obfuscated as they're really the only parts that move the story on. From a production point of view there were just so many plates spinning I'm not sure anyone could have pulled the sequels off, it just seemed like an impossible task.

    The Jazz Thread

    Love Dee Dee Bridgewater, she's an incredible performer. I think UFO are due a critical reevaluation too, Toshio Matsuura made some great stuff in the 90s. How about these for some heavyweight guests? Charles Tolliver, Yusef Lateef and Mulatu Astake on the same record. Absolutely beautiful music. This feels like an essential purchase.
  21. The ref is a real home blower, but Grealish needs to toughen up or be smart enough to know he’s not getting anything and battle some more. Falling on his arse at every touch in a game like this is pointless.
  22. The camera view on this game is making my eyes go all funny.
  23. I hadn't watched any of the New Zealand one yet, but had no idea that Leigh Hart was on it. I would absolutely recommend checking out his other stuff as he's something of a legend over there. My brother-in-law who's a Kiwi showed me this cold and I was crying was laughter. The whole series is ridiculously funny.
