    What are you reading at the moment?

    I've just finished reading The 2020 Commission Report on the North Korean Attacks on the United States by Jeffery Lewis. https://books.google.co.uk/books/about/The_2020_Commission_Report_on_the_North.html?id=wEowtAEACAAJ&source=kp_book_description&redir_esc=y It's very chilling and also (from my non-expert view) pretty plausible. It's written as an official report by a nuclear weapons expert on the build up to and the aftermath of some nuclear attacks carried out by Kim Jun IL against the west. It's based on known facts and also extrapolates from actual tweets from Trump and his circle. It very cleverly done. The descriptive sections about the aftermath of a nuclear attack are transposed from accounts of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks by the US on Japan. Trump does not come out of it smelling of roses, unsurprisingly. Highly recommended to anyone (like me) who laps up post apocalyptic fiction, but this one is a bit different in that it could very easily come about. It's pretty scary.

    Sharp Objects

    Yes sorry, I could have been clearer, that's why I put the quotation marks around narrator. The story is kind of from her perspective, even though it's not a story she's telling. I was referencing the 'unreliable narrator' that's often used in literature.

    We Happy Few

    I haven't played this, or read up much about it at all, since I last posted in here 2 years ago (I was quite enjoying it during the initial early access but stopped playing for whatever reason & I can't remember much about it now). Sounds like it's been changed quite a bit during the meanwhile, so I'm downloading it again to give it another go when it's fully released (tomorrow?). I paid the early access price so might as well give it a shot. Reviews seem mixed but it sounds like something a bit different to what I usually enjoy. Is there anyone looking forward to We Happy Few? I'm not sensing much enthusiasm for it anywhere.

    Better Call Saul!

    So good to have it back. Straight after that finished the old Netflix muscle memory kicked in and I was getting ready to press the 'watch next episode' button. But on reflection, I'm so glad I couldn't do that, because I'd have rinsed the whole season by now and would be settling in to the lonnnggggg wait for the next season to start up. The wait between weekly releases is much, much better for a slow paced show like this, giving me time to think about what I've seen and appreciate just how damn good it really is. It also gives me time to read through stuff like this and get everyone's take and opinions on it before settling in for next week's episode. It's like Event Television is back. So good.

    Oh grand, didn't realise the full series was up, looking forward to getting stuck in. It's on NowTV yeah?

    Sharp Objects

    Yes, enjoying this a lot. It's very slow burn, lots of potential bad 'uns who could be killers/psychos/red herrings. Weird characters, dodgy family set-ups and quite gory with all the self harm and alcohol abuse going on. Deep rooted family trauma and secrets galore. It's all rather dense. 5th episode tonight and I'm still not sure who to trust or what's actually going on. I think Amy Adams is great in this, playing a very damaged and possibly a very unreliable 'narrator'. Beautifully photographed and some great Led Zeppelin too. How many Eps left?

    What Song Are You Listening To Right Now?™

    Underworld have brought out an EP called Teatime Dub Encounters (are they still called EPs) Its a collaboration with Iggy Pop and it's excellent. I've got 'Get Your Shirt' currently on repeat in the car, it's one of those tunes that just makes me want to drive much too quickly, so I hope I get sick of it soon. Needs to be loud for full effect, which is why I think a car is probs my favourite environment for appreciating music.
  8. Better Call Saul is back on 7th August! Sorry if this is old news, I just got a notification from Netflix.
  9. There's a new Last Chance U out now. New school, new coach, new players, new staff. Not loving it as much as the previous two, but it's still a good watch. The new coach is quite a guy and NOTHING like the last bellend. He's a very entertaining fella & has a massive potty mouth. I've not really got any interest at all in American Football as a sport, but the way they edit & show the games make it all very dramatic and exciting. I suppose it's not really about the game though, is it? Anyone else watching?
  10. Ok, thanks @mdn2 I'll grab it for free then but try and get hold of 2 before I play it.
  11. Is Dead Space 3 a good one? Played 1 but not 2, would I be missing out going from 1 straight to 3?

    Forza Motorsport 7

    For racing friends times, in the leaderboard screen, press X a couple of times and it cycles through different filters, there's one for freinds and one for club members among them. @ScouserInExile
  13. Really enjoyed both Wind River and Calibre on Netflix this weekend. Thanks for the recommendations everyone.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Getting back to the world cup songs theme from a few pages ago, I do like 'Chin Up' by the Rhythm Method, which just came out a few weeks ago I think. Has a very 'World in Motion' feel going on in there, though it might have got a bit more buzz if England weren't doing so good (relatively speaking) Also, it's forever been a mystery to me why the Colourbox Official World Cup Theme never got picked up by any broadcaster at any world cup ever, to be their official world cup theme song. Came out in 86 I think and has been criminally ignored at every world cup since. It's a belter. I've got the 12" of it somewhere in the house. (I bought it for 50p 32 years ago) Edit. Shitting hell, how do I embed a YouTube video? I'm sure it used to do it automatically Edit pt2 - fixed!

    Slavan sounded a bit pissed off there at the end.
