Bit of a retro nostalgia day today, pretty normal as I went with my Missus to see IMR Jr have his swimming lesson, pretty cool how babies are programmed to survive in water! Anyway, they have a Wimpy and bowling alley on the floor above the leisure centre that I wanted to check out due to being hungry and to my amazement, they had some horrid retro arcade carpet and a few SEGA machines in!! Played a few games on the Ferrari F355 cabinet and what seemed to be a Jurassic Park type game where you are in a jeep and have to gun down all the animals!! Won the little one a soft toy on the grabber machines and had a Wimpy burger, what a great day!! :mrgreen:

Today, most people in my office are either already on holiday, or have somehow swung it to all "work from home" at the same time. Almost empty office. And no work to do. After weeks and weeks of full-on pressure. Ho hum.

I had a meal from Pizza Hut for the first time in ages, it is now nearly 3am and I have had the shits all night, every time I lie down it feels like a volcano is going to go off! Had submitted a report to the local food standards, just in case!

Today I renewed my offshore survival certs, and had a minor panic when I couldn't get the helicopter window out, strapped upside down, under water. I swear this thing gets worse every time I do it.

Pizza Hut always makes me feel like crap the next morning/day but I will still occasionally order one anyway :oops: . Tell a lie, we use Dominos now as the service at the local PH was absymal last time we used it: first the order didn't turn up then nobody was answering the phones and when somebody DID pick up, they were rude as f*** and the order turned up with something missing. Put a complaint in and was given - as compensation for the sh1tty experience - vouchers to use in store :roll: . Er, okay...

Never using them again.

The local pizza hut and dominos are rubbish. Much prefer our local takeaway pizza shop, much tastier with the added bonus of being cheaper.

Dominoes topping always seems to slide off with it always being sloppy. Of course I have not tried every shop of theirs so it could be just the local ones that stink.

Today I dislocated my youngest grandaughter's elbow :cry:

I pulled her towards me when we were playing, like we've done hundreds of times before, and she started screaming, big deep sobby painful crying.

One trip to the hospital later, doc popped it back in and she's right as rain as if nothing happened.

I still feel terrible though. So, top tip, grab your kids by the body, not the arms, whe you want to pick them up. It might never happen to you, but I know I don't want to feel this guilty again, accident or not.

Today I had to hit wiki to find out what the term "post rock" means.

What I learned from this experience is that trying to describe music with words is still a futile exercise and that whole "dancing about architecture" thing is as accurate an observation as you're ever likely to come across.

Today I had to Google 'dancing about architecture' to find out what it meant. What a silly simile. :lol:

It's all ridiculous. I remember all the heavy metal and rock mags disappearing up their arses in spectacular style during the mid 80s to early 90s in a haze of pointless labelling and pigeonholing excess. Mostly it boiled down to use of the word "core" whenever two bands sounded incrementally different to two other bands. Simply pick a word slightly reminiscent of a band's overall sound or image and stick the word "core" after it and you've got yourself a movement you can hang a review on. It made for a whole load of comparative pretentious crap and was why I stopped bothering with music magazines. Post Rock is a new one for me. I glanced at the wiki and laughed out loud because it utterly fails to describe the music. Out of interest I took a look at the wiki for types of metal and the labelling has hilariously exploded into farce. Obviously it's the result of a couple of decades of writers struggling with their impossible task and lots of bands (and fans) trying to find some sort of identity.

Yeah, it's weird and I can never really follow all the genres and sub-genres that people use

Today, seemingly from nowhere, there is a huge zit on the back of my hand. Fighting the urge right now to pop it, looks like a squirter. :shock:

So do Rock/Metal forums have a gazillion subforums like RVG?
