  1. Very enjoyable book. I didn't know anyone still wrote books in that hysterical realism style, but glad to find they do. I don't think you need to be a gamer, I would say I have not really been one for about 25 years but I've still kept an interest in what is going on and picked up a controller occasionally. The detail of game development is part of what makes it such a richly detailed world. There were a few things in it where I thought if you didn't know games you would probably want to have a google to figure out what the characters were talking about!
  2. Thinking I will make my first trip to the cinema since Covid to watch Tár (not out in the UK yet). That aside I've woken up my Netflix account from a 5 year slumber and so have quite the backlog of stuff I'm interested in!
  3. You might both want to listen to this woozy cover of 'Long Forgotten Fairytale' from last year if you haven't already. I'm not sure how much I like it exactly but it is aurally interesting at least; https://youtu.be/OjtzyGT7Ea8
  4. I think it got a fair hearing at the time. I'm having flashbacks now to how every Oasis album would be presented by the NME as a 'return to form!', it never was..... Just looked on Wikipedia though and that was the album that originally was going to be Death In Vegas produced.
  5. Everynow and then I wonder if I was wrong about liking Oasis, a lot of things I liked 25 years ago I'm not that into now. But if you go back and watch footage from 94, 95 or 96 they were a great rock and roll band. I am in something of a minority by liking Be Here Now, but I don't think they made any good music after that. Noel Gallagher taking over production duties was the big mistake I reckon. If only that Death In Vegas produced record could have happened!
  6. Me too! My excitement about the support led to me getting London and Manchester tickets. First time I have bought tickets for 2 shows on a tour, for any band. Of course Ohmme coming on at 6.45 in Manchester could have screwed things up... Very appreciative to hear a rare live rendition of 'You, your face'. I think everyone else has said enough about Wilco!
  7. There's a great clip of the audience participation during Spiders up on the Wilco Instagram site; https://www.instagram.com/p/BNAz9FDjv3v/?hl=en
  8. Two lane Blacktop featured James Taylor and Dennis Wilson in the lead roles. James Taylor has done lots of other stuff too.
  9. I was there. I had a good view from my seat and I wasn't wasted. Pretty sure I would have noticed a teenage Tweedy on stage - and I didn't.
