Re-re-run of currently watching

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

I was hoping for some top-quality enclosure action here, with commentary a la One Man & His Dog...

"...and here's Bavarian champion Hans Bauernschneider in his first European championship. Some of you will recall his father, the great Helmut Bauernschneider, competing in the 1980 Olympic games, where he took gold in the Freestyle DryStone Walling competition, beating the USA's Chet "The Wall" Wallowicz by just 2 points in nail-biting final that had all of us in the commentary box on the edge of our seats.

Yes, John - there's a long history of competition in the Bauernschneider family. His great-uncle Erwin will be best remembered for the terrific upset in the 1964 Games, the so-called Berlin Wall semi-finals, where he faced off the USSR's Yuri Yoyoyovovich. Some great times.

And so here's Hans Bauernschneider taking his mark in the Barbed Wire (open) class. See the concentration on his face as he makes sure his gloves are on firmly. All to play for here as he approaches his first post..."
... :lol: ... lovely for those who are in it.

Btw, in spite of Bauernschneider's tradition-supported bravery, this year's European Championship medal went to Söhnke Friedmund Klar, who easily outplayed him by three (and a half) to one pitches already during the 128 direct eliminations. But hell, it's the taking part that counts ... merely watching is always only half the fun. So what... :wink: ...

I'm so bored of Matt Berry. When he was in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace I thought Todd Rivers was a wonderful comic creation. Turns out, it's just him.

I thought he was good in The Mighty Boosh as well. Small role, but still.

last eve, and that is so good, so griping, so good, well acted, so good made, with some deepth.
Quite obvously, some comaparision may occur, basing on, great performer, flamboyance, charisma, between this and Bohemian Rhapsody, and BoRap looks so thin.

I went and saw Midsommar last night. I loved it, but it is definitely not for everyone. Florence Pugh knocks it out of the park, I think, and Jack Reynor has what might be the most perfect "what-the-f**k?" face I've ever seen on an actor.
The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

Took a while to get going, but it's not too bad. Could probably be a bit more pacy though

Different tastes eh? I found this one highly underwhelming, and the setting more of an Iron Sky 2 but SPOILERS!!!! with commies instead of nazi's.

Still trying to get to grips with DARK on Netflix. Even if it wasn't dubbed from the original German, I'd still have a struggle with the hundreds of characters across four time-zones with travel between them all.

Gorgeous and eerie though.

It was superb wasn't it?
Absolutely terrifying too in that it was so close to the present day situation in the world.
A bit like watching dystopia actually come about.
