  1. I’ve given it a go but it’s not really for me this one. 3/5 for me. Thanks for recommendation though.

    Tom Misch

    Yep. He is great and very unique sounding. @insider9 Have you listened to Beat Tape 2 yet, which was his first album release? That’s my favourite of the two, Geography being the 2nd. We bought tix last year for a one day festival just because he was there (the other artists being a bonus for the money) and he was awesome live. Exactly the same. He’s doing another tour currently, however he is now much better known and so the ticket price has gone north quite a bit!! He is deffo worth a listen for anyone that hasn’t heard him

    What's the point?

    I do sometimes. But the mute is mega-handy nevertheless as I may have taken a personal call on my own phone and left in kitchen etc.

    What's the point?

    No. Personal and work phones are separate entirely (too many hols in past where I’d end up taking client calls - got annoying fast when you’re trying to chill). Plus I use Spotify premium to Cambridge CXN hardwired to Ethernet so phone is only a remote anyway and I can still take a call without affecting the music.

    What's the point?

    I disagree with this one as I work form home every Friday. If my work phone rings and I need to speak to a client then I want to answer straight away. Therefore an instant silence is very handy for me.

    Vinyl is a life’s journey

    I’ve never been into vinyl but am a serious CD collector with absolutely loads of them. So I can really understand the theory here as many of my CDs are rare as hens teeth (I’m a massive hip-hop-head) that I’ve had to import from foreign soils to listen to, or travelled mileage to gigs, of which I’ve probably been to thousands too, and bought and got them signed. Therefore I can recall pretty much all of my (hip hop at least) purchases, when, where and from which country purchased. *and for anyone panicking they will have to listen to hiphop cr4p on my WAC club week - nope you’ll have to keep on guessing until it’s my turn, my musical taste is also massively varied, I just happen to have a bonkers large hiphop collection which I can remember almost in its entirety.

    What's the point?

    Amazon Packaging for hifi cables Tenuous link, but I recently bought my mum a 5 metre rca>3.5mm jack to plug her phone into hifi and it was delivered in a box inside another box, with the total size around 2x2x1 feet... Ridiculous for something that could fit inside a padded sleeve!!

    What's the point?

    Speaker Grilles Everyone takes them off as they look/sound far better without. So they just end up getting dusty in a box!

    Well that’s a bit s**t!!! Epipen warning!!!

    Thinking about it... if it’s 2 in 1000 why are they proactively contacting people and providing zero info or background or info... That’s utterly crap and fear inducing... For me, I s**t my pants (edited for you Rabski. Lol!!!) as my Mrs has extremely severe reactions and is on the top dose (500), so when it happens, it really happens....To the point I’ve done and been qualified as a 1st aider for past few years so if it hits the fan I can at least try my best. My sumup is that is severely crap contact and service by nhs distributors! (not NHS - i owe my youngest sons life to them, so I am forever in debt to them - heroes!!) But why scare people with crap info. And also, what about the 2 people in 1,000? If it’s been known since Jan 2018 and only now knowledge, that’s crap too.. The 2/1000 - If that was my Mrs she’d prob be dead!!!

    Well that’s a bit s**t!!! Epipen warning!!!

    Thank you sir!!! I’d not seen this and had zero info. This has alleviated my concern somewhat... Pharmacist info/advice was absolute poo tbh. Massively disappointed in them.
  11. Hi folks, I’ve recently bought a large 4K set... It looks incredible. However, I’ve noticed there’s seems to be very small amounts of 4K content. My telly upscales but it’s not the same, I’m sure I’m missing a trick... We currently have a basic Virgin package, which I can exit very soon, plus Netflix which I’ve upgraded to the 4K package... two questions please: Netflix: what decent things are recommended to watch in hi-def! (I get lost looking as there’s soooo much to choose from!!) General TV provider: is it worth upgrading my virgin, switching to Sky, or other - who offers greatest amount of 4K content? thanks in advance.

    How My Husband And I Terrified A Taxi Driver My husband and I were dressed and ready to go out for a lovely evening of dinner and a movie. Having been burgled in the past, we turned on a 'night light' and the answering machine, then put the cat in the backyard. When our cab arrived, we walked out our front door and our rather tubby cat scooted between our legs inside, then ran up the stairs. Because our cat likes to chase our budgie we really didn't want to leave them un-chaperoned so my husband ran inside to retrieve her and put her in the back yard again. Because I didn't want the taxi driver to know our house was going to be empty all evening, I explained to him that my husband would be out momentarily as he was just bidding goodnight to my mother. A few minutes later he got into the cab all hot and bothered, and said (to my growing horror and amusement) as the cab pulled away: "Sorry it took so long but she was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her ass with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off so i grabbed her by the neck and wrapped her in a blanket so she wouldn't scratch me like she did last time. But it worked! I hauled her down the stairs and threw her into the backyard....she had better not crap in the vegetable garden again."

    A Man Is Lying In Bed In The Hospital Wearing An Oxygen Mask Over His Mouth And Nose A young student nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath. "Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?" Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet." He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?" Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other. She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine." The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very, very closely: Are - my - test - results - back?"

    A very handsome man gets into a terrible car accident. The doctors save his life, but he loses one eye. Before a nice glass one can be fitted, he is temporarily given a wooden eye. The man becomes very depressed because of his eye loss and sits at home, moping around. Eventually his friends come over and drag him out to a bar to try and cheer him up. While at the bar, he's still just sitting there looking depressed, not really talking. One of his friends suggests he tries to talk to a cute girl who seems alone at the bar. "No, she'll never go for a man with a wooden eye," the man says. "Okay, how about that girl over there?" His friend responds. "She has a really big nose". The man walks over to the girl and asks, "Would you like to dance?" Very excited, and shocked, to be asked to dance by such an attractive man, the woman responses "Would, I?! Would I?!" To which the man quickly responds "Big nose! Big nose!"

    That’s fine Rabski. I put it in the car park as I was/am very miffed about it hence my colourful vocab! Thanks for editing and moving if it will get more views in here as this is potentially lifesaving for someone!! We’ve asked the doc for another prescription, however cannot collect it until Mon as by time it was written the docs was closed. I’m sure it will be fine, but now am extra worried just in case she gets stung etc. over this weekend.
