    Great. Now I'm imagining Batman with a Brummy accent.
  2. Yeah that'd be my thought. Most 15ers don't bother paying to see their own team, it seems unlikely they'd pay to watch ours.
  3. It must be embarrassing for them that 12 year old kids build better stadiums than they ever have.
  4. There's no denying the talents of the legend that is Prince, but that doesn't mean we don't still get blown away by stories of his musical exploits. Arguably one of his most impressive feats was that he sang every single part, and played all 27 instruments you can hear in his debut album For You. The album was released in 1978, when Prince was at the tender age of 20. For all the music heads out there, he is credited with: ‘all vocals’, not forgetting ‘deep breaths’, as well as ‘electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass, bass synth, singing bass, Fuzz bass, electric piano, acoustic piano, mini-Moog, poly-Moog, Arp string ensemble, Arp Pro Soloist, Oberheim four-voice, clavinet, drums, syndrums, water drums, slapsticks, bongos, congas, finger cymbals, wind chimes, orchestral bells, woodblocks, brush trap, tree bell, hand claps and finger snaps’. I don't even know what half of those instruments are.
  5. Ian Wright might be a good example. A good player but was rejected by professional clubs and just played non-league until finally spotted and signed in his 20s.
  6. I'm sure they are coming after today's results.
  7. Cobra Kai on Netflix is excellent (in a so bad it's good way). It's a continuation of the 80s Karate Kid movies, if you liked those, you'll love this.
  8. I'm surprised they are not bragging about being undefeated for almost a month.
  9. I've never played it, but EVE Online is supposed to be good and (I think) it's free. Or you can get something like Elite Dangerous for just over £5. https://www.cdkeys.com/elite-dangerous-pc?__currency=gbp&awc=22550_1640944535_5dcf12e174be55eb627665bcd9876982&utm_source=awin&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=RedBrain+Ltd
  10. I'd rather have the Johnny-come-lately's than the Saddam approved Quality Street. Quality Street gained the implied endorsement of Saddam Hussein when the Iraqi leader was reported to have offered them to visiting British politician George Galloway in 2002.Nestlé were initially positive, but then chose to backtrack about the connection. I'd love to have been in the Nestle boardroom at that meeting! "Great news guys! A world leader LOVES our product!" "Awesome, let's get a full marketing team on this so we can exploit it! Oh, by the way, which leader is it?" "Saddam Hussein" "Bit of a baddie, but ok, we can work with it. This is going to be great! How did we find out that Saddam loves Quality Street?" "From George Galloway!" "Oh. Oh no! No no no no no! Saddam we can handle, but there's no way we can have bloody Galloway associated with us!"
  11. 1. Heroes 2. Celebrations 3. Quality Street 4. Roses
  12. That's a sad one, even though he was 90. One of the few famous people that I've never heard anything bad about.
  13. I've walked past that sculpture thousands of times and never knew it had anything to do with Atyeo!
  14. I have no idea! If you have Twitter, try asking Weird Bristol, he posts lots of interesting Bristol information and I think he lives in Bedminster.
  15. John Lennon's first draft of Imagine was shit.

    No, but I know he has a sense of humour about himself.

    Andy Murray has won at least 3 times, so obviously not.
  18. It's not Bristol of course, but I am Westcountry enough to almost understand the farmer, and I certainly don't need Nick Frost's secondary translation.
