Enough is Enough.... no chance for the Sisters in 2014!

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

As I have said before, and I wasn't the only one, never mention the trenches in Belgium.

2014 promises to be a better year.... ('Triskaidekaphobia' is the phobia and fear of the number 13, LOL.)

Anyway, what I wanted to say is:

A bunch of rival soccer players almost bought about the absolute end of World War One (in 1914, exactly a hundred years from today) by resolving their differences with a football...

That was the legendary "Trenches of Belgium" incident.

The term "The Sky's Gone Out!" (Bauhaus, Pete Murphy, etc) also refers to WW1 - those were the moments when exploding bombshells threw dirt high into the air, thus blocking out the sunshine and creating only darkness...

Actually if 2014 will be peaceful in Europe as continent. This will be the first time after many many many centuries...
1914 was WW I
1814 was Napoleonic Wars at the peak
etc...

What will happen this time? :lol: :notworthy:

2014- we're lazy, 'fat' (both mental and physical), we're angry and bored, we're ready to do some 'action' and we got much more military power than we can handle. at least we're let off steam in Africa and Asia.

I don't think the Christmas Truce of 1914 was ever seen as a possible end of the Great War.
It was only a respite in hostilities for the observance of the Religious Festival.

It was the start of the end.....maybe without it the War would have dragged on until 1919.

What's this doing in Sisters Chat?

WWI started 28th July 1914

The Football Game was supposed to have taken place on Christmas Day 1914 between the front lines close to Ypres

If you haven't visited Ypres and the Menin Gate, you should.

The topic title makes it look like it's going to be a post about how the OP thinks there'll be no Sisters gig in 2014.

Perhaps this will be the year we'll get a tour and a WWI-themed concept album to go with it. Perhaps not. Roger Waters is probably doing that one as it's more his style. And it'll be very dreary.

And as for the Xmas football match almost bringing about the end of WWI. Nice idea but no.
It was kept fairly secret with some people not believing it even happened for decades afterwards.
If their superiors had found out the participants would have been shot for being traitors, because that's how they behaved back then.

And as for "no chance for the Sisters in 2014", I had a dream the night before last - they were doing a secret gig, Near Meth was never mentioned so perhaps using another name, and there were loads of new songs in the setlist and it was truly awesome. But I remember no other details other than that.
I'm not one for having premonitions though so nothing will come of it. Ah well.

I think this thread can safely be moved to "General Chat". It's certainly way off topic for "Sisters Chat".

Hahaha no.

And you're getting no clues as to the Chairman's real identity from me.
