  1. I also had a reminder today thanks to Facebook that I was at a festival in Sydney EIGHTEEN years ago today. Meh. Bands playing included Prodigy, System of a Down, Silverchair, New Order, Jurassic 5 and Alien Ant Farm. I also got extremely sunburnt.
  2. I had to explain to someone I work with who Dick Dastardly and Muttley are ☹️
  3. Any freelance graphic designers looking for some ongoing piece/project work? The charity I work for is looking to expand its team of designers and I know we have some on here so thought I'd reach out.
  4. I think it’s the first time with a series rather than a film and I’ve not been before so I can’t compare too much. It lasted 3.5hrs and through our time in there we saw the characters a few times and they ‘aged’ as the time went on. The first time I saw Eleven age was in the pink dress with short hair; then I saw her later with slicked back hair in the overcoat; and then I saw her towards then end with longer hair and the bright short. Same with Hopper - police chief > Hawaiian shirt, etc. You were given tasks and clues for stuff and then it all culminated in ‘bringing the 3 series together’ but I won’t go into detail as I don’t want to spoil it if anyone’s going. It wasn’t quite what I expected but that wasn’t a bad thing. Thanks! It was £7.99 on ebay. I just cut the neck and sleeves off.
  5. Did the Stranger Things Secret Cinema today. It was fantastic, absolutely love it! Anyone been?
  6. I’m going to Disneyland Paris 3 weeks today. So excited. First time on Eurostar (always driven before) and first time in a Disney Hotel. Also finalised the (EIGHT) hotels for the US road trip last night so will be staying in LA - Redondo Beach - for 7 nights and doing both Disney parks. Decided to skip Universal though as we’ve done it before. Any tips on FastPasses for Disney? I know they work differently to Orlando and don’t want to miss out on stuff because we’re not rope drop people.
  7. I was working from home on Friday. Went to the toilet, came back to this. He then stood on the power button and shut down the laptop. He’s almost 16 now.
  8. Forgot to mention, going to Disneyland Paris in a few weeks too. Staying at the Cheyenne for 3 nights and I can’t bloody wait!
  9. Careful with a lot of the flight prices as 90% don’t include check-in luggage, even a lot of the long haul ones. I was getting great prices for LA until I realised it didn’t include luggage and it bumped up the prices by £150-200 in some cases. Not so much of an issue if your doing short breaks though probably. I don’t know what internal flight prices are like but seriously consider a fly drive. LAX isn’t that far from Anaheim and we’re driving up to San Francisco. It’s not a short journey by all means but it probably works out the same as flying. Already done San Diego. It was a while back but I don’t think there’s much more I’d do to be honest. I’ve also done LA but the seedy side exactly like you’ve described. That’s why we’re doing a beach this time plus a few theme parks thrown in. I think we’re heading for Redondo Beach based on some tips from other people.
  10. Admins, can we rename this The Holiday Thread rather than starting a new one please? - - My friend and I are doing a West Coast US trip in May. We’re going for 18 nights and booked a fly-drive with BA last night for £547 each direct from Heathrow to LA. Tip: Check our Jack’s Flight Club for some great deals on flights! Anyway, the first half of the holiday is a road trip up to Seattle and back. We’re spending 7 nights in LA at the end but have no idea where to stay for a reasonable price but isn’t too far away (thinking about LA traffic) from some main attractions, i.e. Disneyland, Universal Studios, WB studios, Hollywood sign, etc. We want something relaxing, maybe near a beach. Anyone been to LA to recommend something? I’ve been before and stayed on Hollywood Blvd but only because I didn’t have a car at the time and thought that’d be the best place to stay.
  11. I love The Rutles. I was at the Royal Albert Hall at the end of October to see The Bootleg Beatles with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra playing Abbey Road and Neil Innes was the compère. He was fantastic and I’m so glad I got to see him.
