RE: It whatโ€™s Next??

I had no idea what you were talking about Brooky - so I checked...
It appears it's Robbie Williams he doesn't like - and who can blame him? ๐Ÿ˜‚

RE: Strange stuff appearing on my PC

Very strange.
What is in the One Drive folder in your profile - c:\users\<snaps!>OneDrive ?
Where is the video folder you mention - in your main profile or within the OneDrive folder?ย  If it's in your actual videos folder that's even strangererer.
Also, it's not quite true to say it's all Cloud and not local - it depends how it's configured - i.e. could be local and backed up to the Cloud etc.

RE: [VIDEO] Better Call Saul

Oh man, that was a hard watch.
SPOILER:
So, maybe it always had to end that way - Kim finally realising how poisonous they were together....ย  Even though she's been the instigator for lots of the things that they've done, ultimately I guess they're paying the price.ย  Resigned from the Bar and just leaving seemed so sudden.
The way it went straight from Kim leaving to a slightly balding Saul in the mansion (presumably not too long before the events of the opening 5 minutes of the first episode of the season?) leaves us enough episodes to really show what happened next - even more post BB stuff?? - and I refuse to believe that was Kim's exit and was the last we've seen of her....

RE: Quick question re new laptop

Nothing specific but I can recommend - but generally, something with an i5 processor, 10th or later Gen (like i5-10...), 8GB RAM and not be too bothered about storage space as long as it's SSD - 500GB is easily enough, don't be tempted by 1TB etc...

RE: Quick question re new laptop

Buy 2 laptops instead of a MAC.. ๐Ÿ˜‚
Unless there's an actual reason to switch to a MAC I'm not sure of the logic to switch to basically surf and run Office. Similarly, using an iPhone is not at all like using MacOS.
Regarding Office though, it runs perfectly well on MACs.

RE: [VIDEO] Better Call Saul

They're standalone in the sense that they have a beginning and end I suppose - Breaking Bad was first and written without knowing Better Call Saul was going to exist.
Then Better Call Saul came and obviously has characters in it from BB.
Saul was only introduced into BB in Season 2.
Better Call Saul is about how he became who he is (and lots more) so chronologically happens before the events of BB so I suppose it depends on how you want to see it.
The production values and cinematography of Saul are stunning so it would maybe be a bit jarring to go from S6 of that to S1 of BB but other than that I'm not sure it's too important to watch it first. Personally, I'd watch BB first..
Both are the best TV Shows I've seen.

RE: [VIDEO] Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Well I saw Wandavision (and loved it) so was up to speed etc. on that 'side story' but thought this was all rather 'Meh' and didn't really do much for me or the bigger story.

RE: [VIDEO] Brian and Charles

Just couldn't remember how/where I'd seen him then it came to me - After Life. Hadn't realised he's a 'character' from other things too.
His current Twitter has 195(!) followers and YouTube not much more.
I suspect that will increase somewhat..

"had "Confidence Man" on earlier, had seen them on Jools Holland, kind of euro electro indie pop art/fashion students :) better than my description, great live act, with a sense of humour."
Yeah, she/they caught my eye...ย  A great Glasto moment when the whole crowd sat down and bounced up in sync.

"It's pretty good but which format are you listening to as the CD I bought only had 7 tracks on it...so no hidden ones..."
Just Spotify.ย  They wanted to make the album fit on vinyl and be more like a 'traditional' album ~45 mins.ย  The bonus tracks are on the 'Deluxe' edition(s) - and Spotify etc...

Watched the Wolf Alice set only to see the beeb cut away for their last track, Don't Delete the Kisses - that I absolutely love! Hopefully it'll be on later.

No interest in many acts really but it's often the same and I've got into a few bands by watching the great Beeb coverage.ย  Huge improvement over the last effort where they cut back hugely - I think they said it was funding last time?ย  UHD often too... ๐Ÿ˜

RE: Sherwood, new bbc1 drama

Agree mbilko, it's really good.ย  I'm sure the writer has lots of knowledge of those times and I'm just as sure some of the wounds opened up 30+ years ago are as raw now as then - whole communities, families and friends torn apart with decisions made at the time.ย  Really something I'd never really considered to be the case so long after.
She knew what she wanted and was literally prepared to do anything to get it.ย  Yup, no such thing as society, she made sure of that time and time again..

RE: The Boys

Yes, we watched this, really great I thought.
Wasn't aware of a new series of Umbrella Academy. I assume Elliot Page still plays the same character (i.e. a female) - from memory, the last season it was Ellen and they identified as female? Really liked this series - although the young, 'powerful' kid was a bit annoying at times.

RE: My Chess Set (well nearly)

I was confused when I first read this as you said 'pulled the plug' on it but then there were pictures.ย  Pulling the plug to me means you decided against it - as opposed to maybe 'bite the bullet'?
What are they actually made of - solid silver? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
What will the other pieces be made from?

"Good interview with Steve Wilson on the new PT album out next week and two lyric videos..."
Cheers, hadn't seen that one.
I'm not sure I buy all of the Colin Edwin story but it's the first time I've read an answer as to why he's missing from, erm, Porcupine Three..
Looking forward to it lots - but would be surprised if you liked it too much, it's quite heavy by the sounds of it.
There's a review here from a guy I listen to lots on their podcast.ย  Interestingly, he raves a bit about the last song from the bonus track - Love In The Past Tense.ย  Look forward to hearing this...
