  1. I remember remarking at the time that it looked like a decent support bill in need of a headliner. I don’t think the poor sales were down to the peculiarities of the local market. That bill would have struggled to sell tickets anywhere.

    The The at the Barras and Glasgow Concert Hall in September. Can’t wait!

    A history of spouting racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, sexist comments is not a ‘stupid mistake’. It’s either in your character, or it’s not. We’re not all just a couple of beers too many away from unleashing a tirade of abuse against minorities, even if we think those remarks are confined to the ‘safe’ company of our pals. That kind of behaviour shines a light into the essential nature of the man. It’s maybe not all that surprising that the dinosaurs at the SFA think those kind of antediluvian views are compatible with holding a position of any influence within its organisation, let alone stewardship of our national team, but it’s certainly regrettable,
  4. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Apologies all, but due to a particularly heavy workload this week, I’m going to have to sit out this week’s quizzes. Finding a daily commitment to the Aussie quiz quite difficult to maintain ATM., so best that I sit out for a while rather than swan in at the weekend and post all my scores in a oner. When things settle down work-wise, I’ll get back into it.
  5. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    Uninspiring 6 for Friday. Cardi, your eminence, have I been stripped of a bunch of titles? Could have sworn I was in double figures. I seem to be on 3 now for some reason

    7 for Thursday. F 1, Aussie coins and Aussie reality TV wrong.
  7. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    If you find a decent pub quiz in Glasgow let me know. Our team have been discussing coming through for an away fixture in the Weeg for a while.
  8. What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    Thought I’d avoided specifics of how the plots played out, but fair play, have duly edited.
  9. What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    My 2018 resolution is to watch more movies. Recently treated myself to a projection system after years of wanting a home cinema, so plan to get though a fairly lengthy list of DVDs and blu-rays and make some inroads into sizeable Netflix / Amazon watchlists over the next few months. Darkest Hour 7/10 (cinema) Enjoyable film with excellent performances from Gary Oldman as Churchill and Stephen Dillane as Halifax, and was pleased to see Lily James again after enjoying her role in Baby Driver. Nonetheless, an enjoyable, if slightly overrated, film. Molly’s Game 8/10 (cinema) Big Aaron Sorkin fan, loved The West Wing, The Social Network, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (though I thought The Newsroom was a rare misstep) and really enjoyed this, his directorial debut. Jessica Chastain is excellent, as is Idris Elba, and Michael Cera, who had a great cameo in Twin Peaks: The Return, was good too. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri 9/10 (cinema) This was great. In Bruges was excellent, but I thought Seven Psycopaths was derivative rubbish, so a welcome return to form from Martin McDonagh. Frances McDormand was superb, as ever - one of the best actresses around.
  10. The P+B Quiz League and occasional Cup

    7, 5 and 8 for Mon, Tues and Wed respectively.

    Once again, as you still appear to be missing the point, I don't think it should've been a featured game. But if there had been a shock (by definition they're always very unlikely) they would've been criticised for not giving it proper coverage. Brechin have amassed a grand total of four points in a league that (by common consent amongst those who’ve actually been subjected to it) is one of the poorest Championships in recent memory - a view surely corroborated by the fact that a dismal Queen of the South team, operating with a threadbare squad, occupy a midtable position). Celtic have lost once in 70-odd domestic games. The infinitesimally negligible prospect of it being a competitive encounter was clearly not the reason for its prominence. A failure of imagination on the part of the BBC is much more likely than any genuine prospect of a ‘Cinderella Story.’
