  1. Ah, bubbles....saw that, and thought of this: Mormon Bubble Porn
  2. It doesn't get much better than this: ...even better than the real thing?
  3. I feel for you. If only you were a bloke, you could marry a Thai girl and have Thai food every day, in your own home. Authentic Thai food, too - not the watered-down crap they serve in restaurants to cater to the unsophisticated Western palate. Alternatively, you could learn to cook it yourself. That's what I did - most of it is very easy - and when I met her, my Thai wife told me my Thai curries were the best she'd ever had. But she said my Pad Thai sucked.
  4. Hey, I don't think much of your private schools over there. At MY private school, we studied French, Latin, Ancient Greek, German and Italian. In later life, I also picked up some essential cusses in Spanish and Thai from my two wives. So now I can seriously upset people in seven languages
  5. I believe Waters admitted some time ago that it was 'probably' his idea. If this is true, which of the other two (or, by then, three) was likely to challenge him, do you think?
  6. Opinion is divided as to the true number of the beast: 616
  7. I expect lzzoso was referring, at least in part, to the manner in which LZ dealt with each other and their fans. Waters was/is indeed an egomaniacal asshole. What's more, as is often the case with egomaniacal assholes, he is also stupid. With the first manifestation of his megalomania, he kicked out the band's songwriter, and then spent the next three years banging around in the toolshed trying to figure out how to write songs. Then, after Animals, when they'd finally hit on a winning formula after a string of 4 (arguably 5) excellent albums, he thought it would be a cool idea to marginalise the band's two genuine musicians, and effectively go it alone with his atonal, demented ramblings. When his solo career officially started, he was finally free of any vestiges of influence (read 'quality control') from his former band members, and proceeded to churn out a succession of increasingly pretentious, solipsistic and musically worthless albums, as well as doing his damnedest to stop the others going out as PF. Well done, Roger!
  8. ...Baudelaire, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Serge Gainsbourg, Roger Vadim...
  9. ^ How thoroughly exquisite. And I bet they don't have a single tattoo between them. Domo arigato!
  10. The Rover. Or maybe Ten Years Gone.
  11. Farm? In Greenwich?? What the hell kind of farm would that be? A skunk farm?
  12. At least you have border controls, silvermedalist. Seems over here that any Tom, Dick or Haribskiczexch can just walk right in.
  13. Vraiment sans pareille
  14. Solid but unexceptional. I wonder how long it took them to come up with that riff?
  15. This is easy: Venom. No contest whatsoever.

  17. I think most JP watchers would already know all they need to about the 77 'noise solos', and would probably have seen the full version of this show. I find it interesting that he's chosen this as his first LZ clip. The other band members are notable by their absence. I hope this doesn't mean he's not gonna be posting any full-band stuff. I can't imagine he's not allowed to...?
  18. If I Should Fall From Grace With God - The Pogues
  19. Love Me, Love My Dog - Peter Shelley
  20. I'm not a good guitarist, but I find that chord (which I've always known as 'The Hendrix Chord') very easy to finger quickly & properly. It looks hard, but it's actually really easy. The only really difficult JP chord for me is the one in No Quarter (add#11).
  21. My first totally successful chicken, bacon & mushroom pie. After his first mouthful, my son said 'This is delicious, Daddy'. (He will always wolf down my concoctions, and has correctly identified me as an immeasurably better cook than my ex-wife, but I think this was his first actual compliment.) I usually get the cheapest white wine I can find to cook with, but last time it was so weak I had to use the whole bottle, and the pie ended up tasting like vinegar. So this time I bought a semi-decent bottle. Also, my lardons usually disintegrate, but this time I fried them in advance and only added them to the mix just before putting it in the dish. A tip: never cook with any wine you wouldn't be happy to drink.
