    Given that his reasoning is 'Ed Sheeran', I almost agree.

    The corollary of how precious Fun-boy Freddie and the Sun City Stompers used to be with their “and nobody played the synthesizer” bolloxery, surely?

And it was awarded to the 'fat dancer', because he lived there on most evenings, unlike 'everyone else' on the stree (with or without a radio show)t, because that's how it goes down in deepest, darkest, South Kensington.

    Oh, didn't I mention that one?
    I think I understand.

    Oh, and "Chris Brown".

    Seriously: at which point in your rising stardom do you think that beating the crap out of your girlfriend, is a good idea. Sorry? His girlfriend was Rihanna? THAT Rihanna?

    What the fuck? Seriously, I am as gay as a slightly moist goose, but even I can see, that hitting Rihanna, is not a good career choice.

    So, Chris Brown.

    Heheh, yes of course it should have struck me that your avatar is still a Mamenchisaurus, isn't it?!

    Holy mackerel, though: no I had no recollection of that thread at all. Funny, however: as I read through the thread I could work out almost exactly what my own contribution was going to read like, because I was mentally storing up interjections as I went along – and of course it turned out I'd interjected with those very same points two years ago...

    That was a great discussion, wasn't it? And this is very timely, so thank-you: your comment "At that age, I was marvelling at the recently re-mounted T Rex in the NHM." has reminded me that Dippy the Diplodocus who stood for so long in the entrance hall of the National History Museum is on tour right now and will only be exhibited at the National Museum of Wales until this weekend. So I must make a special effort to go into Cardiff in the next couple of days and say hello to my favourite dino skeleton (well, cast thereof), who I used to see in the NHM when I was a small boy and last saw there in 2005 when I was 25.

    Indeed, I meant actual 'dinosaurs'.

    Surely you've not forgotten this thread from a couple of years ago?

    Oh okay - have to say that I don't know it. (Looks very similar to UKMix.)

    Oh god, don't let me know about things like that. That way madness lies, for a charts nerd like myself.

    When you say "'dinosaurs'", Jah, were you thinking about my music tastes, tendency to resurrect old threads, or what, should I ask? I mean, I'll happily chat about actual dinosaurs, being a bit of a Mesozoic nerd too, but I don't think that's what you were getting at...?

    Haven? Never heard of it.

    I'm more a Go Pontinental man myself.

    I feel I need to 'balance' OTF with lighter boards a lot more (like the "new and old charts" site that Jah and I frequent) and also cut down the World forum visits to the bare minimum needed to stay knowledgeable due to the utter grimness of the news.

    Good to have you about for the occasional 'dinosaur' chat, VA.

    Heh, I did bail out from full-time residency about the October before last and didn't look in here at all for around 11 months* I think – for sanity reasons, i.e. not losing countless hours to such an addictive time sink.
    AE, Sits and co though see me all the time in-game over on Xpert Eleven, so my presence or lack of it in the monster thread for that on these boards was neither here nor there really, and nobody on the rest of the boards really notices me as far as I know.

    Every now and then since first dipping my toes back in, I've had brief windows of posting then dropped out again for a few weeks. It's nice to know I seem to be able to do so on a more off-and-on basis these days, though it may just be that there's a dearth of topics I find interesting right now...!


    (* Edit: Just checked, it was 10 months and 4 days apparently. Then another 2 months almost straight after that.)

    Then we'll be fine - as long as we don't move in next door to each other.

    Nor do I. But then again, I never f*** off for long enough.

    Quite a few of us heard from you every day VA. Nice to see you back permanently on OTF.

    I’m sorry. I never know if people have taken a break or just aren’t showing up in the handful of threads I follow.

    Welcome back.

    I think you've gone the opposite direction to me here DM. I never got why everyone raved over Dog Man Star at the time, but a few years ago I picked up the CD at a boot sale for a quid and really 'got it' on a belated listen. The Wild Ones, whose haunting chorus I remember from the radio back in the day, is probably still the pick, but there's great songs througout and I much prefer it to Suede's debut now.
