Re: Your Top 3 films of all time

1. Shawshank
2. Rain Man
3. Karate Kid (original of course)

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 13-14 October 2012, Manches

I now have 2 spare tickets for this event. Is anyone interested in buying (at face value of course)?

Re: Retrovision 2012: Part 2 - 29th & 30th September (Oxford

It's very last minute but I'm hoping to come to this. Struggling to find a place to stay though. Does anyone have any spare room at their accommodation or can recommend somewhere? Thanks.

Re: Songs that its hard to be depressed while listening to?

Apologies if any of these have already been mentioned but these songs always lift my spirits (probably more for nostalgic reasons than anything): Feeder - Just a Day Hundred Reasons - I'll Find You Jimmy Eat World - The Middle Blink 182 - All the Small Things New Found Glory - My Friend's Over You O...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 13-14 October 2012, Manches

Can I make a suggestion for an amazingly fun game and what I believe would be a first for a gaming event? Multi-player (up to 4) Grand Theft Auto (the original game) I played it with my bro the other day. I'd never tried it before and it took some fiddling about to get it working but when we did, it...

Re: wrestling

I don't get the whole taking sides thing with WWE and TNA. You can like both you know! They've both got their pros and cons, just enjoy the best stuff they have to offer. I don't watch either show religiously but I'll always check results and catch an episode on YouTube if I think it's worth watchin...

Re: Jam on Toast!

Personally, I prefer peanut butter (of the crunchy variety obviously) on my toast.

Does anyone know if they make that Snickers spread any more? It was a mix of chocolate spread and peanut butter. That stuff was the bees knees.
