Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Here's one example. A friend of mine by the name of David Leach is a freelance cartoonist. Amongst other projects he also made a Psycho Gran comic, resurrecting one of the Oink! characters in her own digital title. It took him a full year to make it - to write, design, pencil, ink, colour, edit and ...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

The excuses for pirating (stealing) are ludicrous. By not purchasing them or the service they're exclusively on, you're watching it by stealing it instead of paying for something. Instead of the money going where it should, into the hands of those that create it. Sickening. So are you an angel ? Ye...

Re: Scotland independence - YES or NO - VOTE

Just found this interesting link on National Geographic and the bit under the 'GDP' banner kind of blows that "poor relative of the rest of the UK" theory out of the water: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/09/140911-scotland-independance-voting-cultures-uk-europe-england-graphic/?utm_sou...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

An iTunes update appeared on my system and it automatically downloaded the album to my purchased list, then about an hour later it was amongst my albums automatically. It's free, yet people are complaining! I've never bought anything by U2 so I gave it a go and I enjoyed it so I'll be keeping it. Bu...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

I download films and TV series. I also buy Bluerays and go to the cinema. I'm naughty and good. :twisted: :evil: That doesn't cancel out the damage you're doing to the others though! Strange, I hear the arguments for piracy and I was brought up to not steal. Simple as that. If you can't afford some...

Re: Scotland independence - YES or NO - VOTE

The Big, Big Debate programme on the BBC News channel last night was interesting - 7000 16 and 17 year old school pupils in the audience and four politicians on the stage, two from each side. The school kids showed a lot more maturity than the politicians I have to say. Also, on several occasions th...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Kick Ass 2 - Amazing, really enjoyed it :) . For some reason, I found it constantly funny whenever the main bad guy referred to his Dad as being "blown up by a bazooka". Great sequel though and I really hope there's another. Not according to Chloë Grace Moretz as apparently she reckons that the sec...

Re: Scotland independence - YES or NO - VOTE

BBC Scotland is a separate entity It's not, it's just another local region like BBC Northern Ireland, BBC Wales or the countless English regions. It gets its funding from the TV licence from all over the UK just like all the others do. Take this from a former employee :) Not sure what will happen i...

Re: Scotland independance - YES or NO - VOTE

However if I, as an Englishman, had the vote I would certianly vote 'no' - to lose Scotland and it's left wing block of votes come the General election will be a minor disaster from a socialist point of view - and it will mean the southern right-wing power bloc will be even more prevelent and force...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

Oh I completely agree, and in fact that same BBC video is exactly what I was referring to. It's vile. But dealing with people complaining every day, trying to make something like a quip on Have I Got News For You more serious than it is by calling it 'racist' was ludicrous, and took away from genuin...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

The Scottish referendum and the anti English tone of the whole affair. Was a staunch Unionist, but after seeing and hearing what's being said North of Border, Scotland can go it alone and take its racist views with them. You've reminded me of something that does grind my gears. This isn't personal ...

Re: Doctor Who Community Buzzing With Rumours

No, not for me, the trailers for the first two looked great but they were pants. I've had over two years of being disappointed with what was my favourite TV show (in fact that was the only reason - blind loyalty - that kept me coming back as it got worse and worse) time to draw the line, no matter h...

Re: Doctor Who Community Buzzing With Rumours

I have to say Capaldi is brilliant, but the series sucks. Both he and Coleman have shown some real comic genius and last night's in particular he was very good with what he was given - loved his karate move and the scenes in the dungeon with him and Robin were hilarious. But the key bit there is "wi...

Re: What Comics did you read as a kid?

That Sidebottom guy was in Retro Gamer as well can't remember the issue but he did stay in character and wore the mask.. Sames most comic's are so damn expensive these days(still trying to find a cheap Load Runner comic)though you have tempted me to look on Ebay to see if I can get any Oink comic's...
