    Say what? When did they nick Swansea's (circa '11-'14) tag?

    Please be real Nike release a shitty commemrative Man City shirt to sum up their time making the club's shirts.
  3. I get the connection too. I hadn't considered it at first, but perhaps it's the way both Speed's and Miles' characters are both best understood while moving. For Speed it's while driving, and for Miles it's web slinging. Both movies do an excellent job of teaching us about these characters through their movement, plus their triumph comes as they grow into the role and responsibility they are reaching for.

    Play is stopped. The infringing team's goalkeeper is blindfolded, play continues for 5 minutes, at which point the blindfold can be removed.

    Avengers Endgame

    I had been until I read this post.
  6. NEG, I think that's the first photo you've ever posted that made me laugh out loud, and it wasn't even in the OT Picture thread. Damn.

    Loona's previous track Hi High was good and this one's also a bit special.

    Musically this one was a grower on me, although I liked the MV from the first time I saw it. Playing with being shitfaced after a bad night out as a 'concept' made me laugh, I don't think you'd see most polished K-Pop groups doing that.

    I've just 'found' Bol4 aka BolBBalgan4 and even though most of their songs aren't new, they're new to me! It I feels like I've already found some of my favourite jams of 2019. And one a little more chill I'm sure if you've been listening to K-Pop that you're familiar with IU as well, but since we've not shared anything by her I almost feel duty bound to add a couple of my favourites from her too.

    Manga

    I was going to recommend Eyeshield 21, and Slam Dunk is another excellent choice. Don't go for Bleach, it's great to start with, but loses itself in an increasingly ridiculously repetitive cycle of bigger and bader boss fights that gets really boring after a while. You can't do better than One Piece for solid Shonen fair, and for something a little different with a great self-contained story, Bakuman is something I highly recommend.

    Aladdin - Live Action

    A Disney Princess movie without talking animals? What madness is this?

    Good to know! Hmmm... I'm not that bothered by hearing that news. Karsa's an interesting one to focus a book on, I found him hit and miss in the main series. Boring and annoying at first, growing to be more interesting as his character and story developed, and then well used towards the end as a force of nature that came along and blew up everyone else's plans. I don't really know what story there is left to tell about him. I'll probably still buy and read it to find out though.

    The Dancer's Lament trilogy takes place in the leadup to Gardens of the Moon so you could read those before the main series. They're shorter and more focused books than the main series with its epic sweep, huge cast, and massive page count. As a lead in to the Malazan world it's not bad, although I think learning about how the Malazan Empire began, and especially Kellanved and Dancer, is best done through the main series. It's like layers being peeled away and you feel like you're constantly learning more and more, discovering for yourself, and figuring out what's going on. I know Gardens especially can be a frustrating book for many people because it makes you work (and then book 2 drops you in a new part of the world and you have to go through all that work again!) I loved it though. Reading the prequels now fleshes out and explains things I'd been curious about all along. I think if I'd read them first I might have not been so drawn into the series as the mystery behind the Malazans and their old ruler just wouldn't have been there. Seriously can't wait for Kellanved's Reach which is due early next year. I've been looking forward to the third part of this trilogy much more than I have for Erikson's final part of his Ascendancy trilogy.

    Worth it though, loved the series and even ICE's extra books expanding the world. His recent trilogy starting with Dancer's Lament have been brilliant.
