  4. Rewatching The X-Files. This must be my third time, although I've only ever watched up to season 7. This time I intend to watch all of it, including the new seasons. A few episodes in I'm already super into it again. It's just so fun and well-written. It really is my comfort food of television.

  9. Never really got scared by the masked/grotesque looking characters but more the one's that appeared normal but were 'unpredictable' in behaviour. For me, the character that unsettled me first time I saw Misery was Annie Wilkes, a role which Kathy Bates absolutely nailed and why she got an Oscar for it. The fact this character is bipolar really puts you on edge for the whole film because one minute she appears fairly normal, the next, she flips and goes bat-shit crazy. She is so inconsistsnt in behaviour that you don't know how she is going to react next and that is what puts me most on edge.

  10. For those that have, and still work in and around a lot of people on a day to day basis I am just curious about what levels of workplace humour you have experienced in your time?? Personally I have always enjoyed a humorous environment in the workplace, sometimes the toughest jobs can be got through by having a bit of a crack on the job... Going back to my early years of working It was common to get 'set up' by your work mates while working a new job just so they could have a good laugh at your expense.. like sending you to the stock cupboard to look for tins of 'elbow grease' or 'tartan paint' or being sent down the shop for a 'long weight' etc.. all of which I in turn passed on to the young and naive under my control... such was your own keenness to make an impression that when someone gave you an instruction you were so quick off the block to get it done you never stopped to think about what you were actually doing.. they would always do it when you were in a rush to get things finished ... all to someones great amusement.. For me it was all part of growing up and learning and becoming part of a team, a test if you like, to see if you actually have a sense of humour in the first place or in fact you are as thick as 2 short planks... The reason I ask is because I was asked to give a trial to someone new in my department and as with all newbies they are prone to making mistakes, but this bloke made a couple of big gaffs which has greatly amused the rest of us... We work in a high care environment which means no eating,drinking etc on the job and despite having an induction which should have covered all the do's and don'ts he boldly rocked up with a can of drink in the department and started swigging away on it between doing his job.. a big no no! so he was duly told to not do it again, despite this he was sitting in the office on Friday and bold as brass pulls out a handful of sweets from his jacket and shouts 'anyone want a sweet??' To be clear both of these gaffs are dismissible offences so had to tell him again about the rules but he did make the rest of the team laugh and they decided to nickname him 'Dr Pepper' as a result.. well he came to me later in the evening complaining that he was not happy that they were laughing at him and I told him to lighten up a bit, it's all part of being in a team and just bit of fun and that no-one in that team including myself has not had the piss taken out of them at some point or another for messing up.. anyway, he seemed to be in a sulk and then failed to turn in for work on Saturday, he made no contact and failed to phone the absence line so using my super deductive powers and experience my guess would be he will not be returning... I appreciate that there is a world of difference between someone being picked on consistently and actually having something concrete to moan about but to walk out of a job over something so daft like that I just can't fathom... Just as well though, if he buckles after something like that he is far too fragile an individual to last the course in my department... Anyone else ever felt the need to walk out of a job over anything similar in their time or did you just laugh the daft stuff off??

  11. I thought Smith would win but didn't expect a stoppage and certainly not that early. I think it was yeah. Implying that if he was gay there was something wrong with it. And let's say if Eubank was, he's tried to out him publicly. Eubank didn't cover himself in glory with his comments about Smith's private life and the city of Liverpool either though.

  12. Sandtex Masonry Paint... Just sitting out the back and it's raining and I got to thinking about how good a job the exterior paint does on the house since I did it about 3 years ago now... Still looks as good as new!! I went with Sandtex Masonry Paint simply because it was on a deal at the time but the house had badly flaking paint on the corners where the wind and rain lashes away at it constantly and when you apply it it's like painting on a very thin layer of rubber but I have to say it's an outstanding product, Due to the flaking there were one or two parts of the house that were showing signs of damp getting in but since I put that on it's just disappeared and not come back.. Might be a bit expensive depending where you get it from but well worth it for me.. Obviously most of my recommendations are probably going to be DIY related but feel free to throw in any product that you feel has either served you well or been well worth the money...

  14. Fucking yes! Massive win and fully deserved. Fernandes and De Gea should be embarrassed trying to waste time to get a point. This is Arsenal v Man Utd, shouldn't they be trying to win the match?

  15. So 2-3 final score. Leverkusen looked really good over 80 minutes. Very organised defensively, and super fluid and fast as fuck when attacking. Gladbach almost came back towards the end, but somehow they never seemed to be in a rush? Like, they need a goal desperately, and just played the ball back and forth to each other. Weird. Looks like Xabi Alonso was the right choice for Leverkusen. Gladbach under Farke as always: Not really bad, but not really that good either.

  16. Fully deserved loss. If Ten Hag continues to persist with that Brazilian fraud on the wing, we’ll never be in games as we’re constantly a player down.

  26. 2 goals across 2 games, but goalless in one of them. The game with the goals was Game 85, and the first of them came in the 37th minute: 2 points. Game 86 was goalless, and for that there were no winners. Table after Game 86: @Rucksackfranzose moves away from the bunch of players on 13 points, and is now joint 4th with @Devil-Dick Willie on 15 points.

  27. When you read stuff like this it's right we should be a bit concerned especially if it's going to be a long term contract.. He is only young so hopefully it will improve but still a big gamble especially as we seem to be suffering from a wealth of injuries as it is in the squad.. Here for example he picked up an injury while having his picture taken...

  28. Yeah, and in general I am of the opinion that we shouldn’t hold boxers to certain standards when at the same time we’re asking them to mentally prepare to fight for their life. But I think a mixture of his age and the fact that no one really seemed bothered by it is what makes it worse.

  29. We've been linked in the past few windows. And as he's a winger he's exactly what we'd have needed. But, when we played PSV in Europe last season, there was a lot of talk about him. He's got a lot of talent, but at the time we played them he hadn't completed a full 90 all season, which was worrying.

  31. That's the good aspect of having a game where you can't/don't score.. all the time you are shutting teams out you can still walk away with at least a point which for now is good for Newcastle given where you find yourselves this season.. For longer term ambitions though you will need players that can come off the bench and make a difference or get that elusive winner because if Toons are going to be pushing for European football on a regular basis going forward then draws just won't be good enough.. The club have done well not to be going in and spending silly money like some clubs I could mention but always knowing financially you have the ability to bring in a quality player if needed

  33. Watched our highlights back. We're lucky to draw as I suspected. We were pretty clinical (albeit both very good chances) but there wasn't a load else from us. That March miss is shockingly bad, so presentable. Mitoma is a fantastic player, I really think he'll go to the top. I think we're lucky to not concede a penalty. The defending for their second is abysmal, MOTD picked it apart very well in that we drop basically everybody back, no outball whatsoever which is ridiculous when we have Vardy and Daka in the squad. You can forgive Vardy somewhat, and I will come to this, because he's getting on a bit but why the hell is Daka being pinned back as far as that? It's ridiculous tactics. You leave him on the half way line and Brighton cannot commit as many forward, and we're likely to get a 3rd if they do. We did this superbly with Vardy for years. Why are we doing it? That's before the actual defending of the box itself. Amartey awful. Mendy nowhere. If you had said three years ago that we would start Ward, Amartey, Mendy and Thomas in a league game you'd be laughed out of the room - and yet with the exception of Mendy these are managerial decisions. He isn't forced into Ward & Amartey, he chooses them. He also chooses Vardy who I think is finally done. He looks so poor in nearly everything he does now. It was always going to happen eventually but I think even a struggling Daka is better than him now. Though no striker will thrive in this ridiculous system that yields the third poorest chance creation in the division behind Bournemouth and Crystal Palace, so I have a degree of sympathy. Iheanacho has far too much patience as well, he should be getting out of here while Rodgers seems to still be bulletproof. We were second best which is no surprise, it's a result that will not alert the hierarchy but the performance wasn't good, I won't be convinced it was at all. Top in attendance and we didn't capitulate. Why couldn't he have been there against Newcastle or Fulham FFS. He might've had to reconsider. We are stuck with this twat and it's going to nail us if we aren't careful.

  35. I believe his rant the other day was to light a fire under the team and fans because we are going to have to be near perfect from this point out to win the title, it's do or die time. we still have to play Arsenal twice so that's 6pts we can pull back on them if we are at our best Pep after us? an international job, he wont manage another team in England

  36. I'm not into horror movies and I pretty much avoid everything that's pure horror with deformed entities, monsters, jumpscares and whatnot, but I do like suspenseful, eerie movies where the fear is generated through more subtle means. So for you horror lovers this will probably look like a ridiculous choice, but André Linoge played by Colm Feore in Stephen King's Storm of the Century was always one of the scariest antagonists for me. Damn I love that miniseries.

  37. Most of these are just monsters with little character. I like Jack Nicholson’s portrayal in The Shining. The history of domestic violence and alcoholism bubbling underneath the surface of a father and husband, whose family is trying it’s best to sweep it all under the rug for a second chance is quite scary. I always felt like Nicholson’s portrayal of the character was a bee’s dick away from having a full blown domestic situation even before he was told to chop his family to bits by the evil ghost hotel. The scene of the father reassuring his son he would never hurt him or his mother is really subdued terror. Yeah, it’s not scary in the shock value sort of way but it must be a relatable horror for a lot of people, just framed in a ghost story.

  42. I can't imagine working in an office without a little bit of humour and banter. It definitely does help you through the day. The on-going fun at the moment is that whenever we create a sweepstake such as the Womens World Cup, we always assign 'Janet' a fake country who isn't even in it. We are keeping her entry fee aside and she can have all of her money back once she finally realises. She's rooting for the Isle of Wight to win the WWC.
