  1. Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five - The Message
  2. ...that Fred Astaire was in the original series of Battlestar Galactica.
  3. Rumble vs. Romero (Romblero?) is what I'm here for. And Valerie Loureda against Some Guy.
  4. A Japanese household classic. Kyu Sakamoto - Ue o Muite Arukoh (better known as Sukiyaki over here)
  5. In Wood Green, just ten minutes up the road from me, there's a converted double-decker bus in an open-air space that's now a board-game cafe and bar, and it's one of the best places to go at the weekend. Board-game cafes are always worthwhile. For games that you can learn quickly, there's Azul, which is a beautiful game about ceramic tile mosaics (sounds dry, but actually really fun), there's the Timeline series of card games, where you have to try and place a historical event/person/invention in accordance with the correct year, there's Fluxx, which is just a batshit mental card game whe
  6. For me, it'd probably be SES or New Nexus CM Punk.
  7. Mike Oldfield - Music From The Balcony Recently found out that this was his last track from his last album with the main Virgin Records brand, having fallen out with them - the song ends with laughter and an audible "fuck off" aimed at them.
  8. Think it would've been less effective in the 70s and 80s, before and during wrestling getting closer to the mainstream. With the comparatively smaller scale and more fragmented nature of mass media at the time, the number of universally-familiar and popular wrestling stars would've been lower, I reckon. Someone like, say, Bruno Sammartino wouldn't have been seen as as big a legend in the south, for example.
  9. Given the state of the MW title scene, and the way they do things recently, I'm surprised they haven't proposed an Adesanya/Usman superfight. Clash of the Diasporic Nigerians.
  10. She's great to watch, just doesn't give a fuck. Understandable that feels the way she does towards wrestling, but I wonder, then, what changed her mind that she went to TNA? I'd hazard a guess it was during that time they were offering stupid pay to anyone, so she probably thought "fuck it, might as well".
  11. First time I heard that, it was Parcel Force. Dead soon. [/frankiecrisp]
  12. One for the north-easterners and Scots, but I've just seen on my suggested FB friends feed a guy with the surname "van der Clart".
  13. Seriously. Assuming he never "plays the game" or gets good at it, and continues to rack up the wins, when would it finally be reasonable to expect the matchmakers to get their heads out of their arses and give him a bout commensurate with his ability? EDIT: Sorry, not meaning to be combative, I'm asking a genuine question about taking the argument to a logical conclusion, mainly because we effectively did come to it in the past, with DJ.
