  1. A couple of things to interest Thin Lizzy fans on BBC2 on Saturday night. There's a new documentary on the life of Phil Lynott at 10pm followed by an old BBC Sight and Sound live performance by the band.
  2. That's just one of those daft myths that people (particularly our fellow Brits) trot out. People just get on with it the best they can. Same as they do everywhere.
  3. The Hives at Nottingham's Rock City last night. Still a great live band.
  4. Heavy snow showers overnight and into the morning have left a decent covering here. Rapid thaw underway already though.
  5. I thought you summarised very well how we've got to where we are but if Dimmest Star can enlighten us further I'm sure we'd all appreciate it.
  6. Kestrels seem to be thriving in this part of the world. Saw three of them this morning alone.
  7. The Humber is a great place for spotting birds at this time of year. Among other recent sightings I've seen pochards, wigeons, redshanks, curlews, a big flock of lapwings and more little egrets than I've ever seen in one place. Seen some huge skeins of geese too but they were too high and far away to tell what they were.
  8. Yes, very difficult to develop the ability to think more than a couple of moves ahead. I was in the chess club at school and used to think I was a half decent player. Then our club entered a Yorkshire regional competition where you play against the clock as well as your opponent and I got absolutely annihilated.
  9. Too many for me to list. Watching the programme would give you a good idea of his talent though.
  10. Really enjoyed Lindisfarne's Geordie Genius: The Alan Hull Story on BBC4 last night. What a brilliant songwriter he was, surely one of Britain's finest ever.
  11. First snow of the winter here in Hull last night. Ground too wet for it to settle though.
  12. I remember the documentary about the making of that album. Lou Reed said something like Mick had to repeat everything farv tarms before he could understand him. Fully appreciated his talent though.
  13. Photographer Mick Rock, you might not know the name but you'll know his work. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/nov/19/mick-rock-music-photographer-dies-david-bowie-queen
  14. That channel is a goldmine. Saw a 1935 film on their a couple of weeks back called Turn of the Tide set in the fictional Yorkshire fishing village of Bramblewick which was actually Robin Hood's Bay. Was great to see location shots of Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby as they were almost a century ago. The actors' attempts at a North East Yorkshire accent were entertaining too.
  15. What awful news. Condolences to his family and friends.
  16. Love it, especially the photo of Roy Francis and the team with the Championship trophy.
  17. The 2021 shirt was the best we've had in ages but as my good friend OF points out, the club have a history of giving the irregular hoops a rest every so often. Makes them seem even more special when they come back. I think the 2022 shirt looks great and my Hull FC supporting Kiwi mate will love it for obvious reasons.
