Re: Rise and Reverberate - the term

"I Sing The Body Electric" is a poem by Walt Whitman, and Bradbury nicked the title from him.

Re: Paint My Name In Black and Gold: The Next Phase

The censor/filter on Wayne and his band are just a bit of an in-joke. We love him dearly, really.

Re: The Sisters Of Murphy Leeds 08/01/22

I think the current state of my mum's health means that I'm probably going to prioritise seeing her this weekend. I'm aware that many of my fans will be devastated to miss me :lol: but I can only apologise.

...one of the things that may help is an alarm system that can be worn around the neck or as a bracelet that can be pressed if she has a fall again. it alerts a system that sends someone around. the key to door is in a tiny box next to the door with a code that the caretakers have to be able to get...

Thank you. Seriously. The weird thing is how quickly she'd deteriorated. I saw her over Christmas, getting to her on Xmas eve and leaving on Boxing day. She was tired and sleepy, but seemed fully in possession of all her faculties. But then in the early hours of Dec 28, I got a phone-call at 4:30am ...

Re: On criticism of Edritch and post-2000 Sisters

It's all elitist bullspit from my perspective, "You can't be a real Sisters fan unless you were one of the five people at this gig in 1982" kinda thing. There have always been problems with Eldritch's voice. There have always been problems with the sound. There has never been a live bass guitarist. ...

Re: COVID-19 coronavirus

My mum caught Covid a few weeks ago despite being triple-jabbed (she thinks she caught it on a coach-trip although what possessed her to go on a coach-trip in the middle of a fcuking pandemic is completely beyond me) and now seems to have post-Covid "brain-fog". She is recovering, but slowly, and sh...

Re: RIP Anne Rice -Author of Interview With The Vampire & The Vampire Lestat etc.

I think Dan Brown has probably written more books than he's read. As for Stephenie (and yes, that is how she spells it) Meyer, well, rationalwiki 's takedown is hilarious. ========== I think you could argue that Interview With The Vampire kicked off the "urban fantasy" genre as a whole. I definitely...

Re: Eldritch-isms

The text of the tweet: “Ringo wasn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles.” Never said by John Lennon. Jasper Carrott’s office claimed it as 1983 gag; proof now it was said earlier, in BBC comedy Radio Active in Oct 1981. File here. Voice by Philip Pope. Written by Geoffrey Perkins. Not by John Lenn...

Re: Today I have been mostly...

Yeah the social media sites can get to fcuk. They actively promote far-right content and censor its opposition. FB removed a picture of Mussolini hanging from his lamppost that I had captioned with something along the lines of "hanging with his homies". Another one I got a warning for: "A group of f...

Re: Eldritch-isms

reminds me of my fave John Lennon quote: fan: hey john, dont you think Ringo is the best drummer in the world? Lennon: i'm not even sure hes the best drummer in the beatles... ...which (I only recently learned) isn't actually a John Lennon quote at all. https://twitter.com/marklewisohn/status/10394...
