  1. If I'm honest, my favourite performance of the festival was Reef. First time I've ever watched an oldies Sunday headliner! Ok The Cure are older, but they were on the main stage so they don't count. Also really enjoyed Morcheeba. Bit of a 90s fest and however much I fool myself that I'm into the more recent/less popular bands it's hard to beat a set where you know all of the songs. Kylie was also great, I nearly shit when she brought Nick Cave on.
  2. The recorded version is 1m 49s.
  3. I managed to finish the second one but it was pretty awful. So different in tone to the original that it's more like a spin off than a sequel.
  4. I will not allow this to ruin Katee Sackhoff for me.
  5. I do all my book shopping second hand so I have no idea about buying new books! Having moved from Bristol to Oxford though I don't know where is good.
  6. Ah right so you can only get the hardback!
  7. I was actually thinking of Pushing Ice by Alistair Reynolds, which I read right before Children of Time.
  8. I came in to post Rama. Definitely Children of Time. Maybe Excession by Banks?
  9. I can't find it! I may have only looked on Amazon because I can't think of any other places. Does Amazon take national book tokens? I should just take a trip to a shop.
  10. Is it available in the UK @Strategos?
  11. What the hell haha. I think maybe that is the Shrike Palace?
  12. Plums


    Such insight. The human condition laid open. My soul burns with a white brilliance in the wake of this new understanding. Nothing is the same. Reality is a construct. My mind and the universe are one. Tell me more my wise and subtle master. Teach me.
  13. It's great isn't it! The way it's broken down makes it read almost like a compendium of short stories. You don't want them to end because they are so compelling but then you get onto the next one and are sucked in anew. I need to get hold of the third book actually.
  14. For some reason the thread made me think of House of Leaves. There's definitely some intense claustrophobia going on in that book.
  15. It's chilled. Maybe you can get it frozen too but I've not seen it. You can buy it at Holland and Barrett and ocado, plus lots of indy places. Sainsbury have started stocking Fry's too, though whether they have the mince or not is I suspect down to the store.
  16. Vegans will avoid the meat aisle, obviously. There is nothing there that they can buy. It makes shopping that much quicker being able to entirely ignore one (or two) aisles. It's annoying having to track things down though. In my local big Sainsbury they put a few plant milks by the cow milk, but the majority of them way over the other side of the store with the baking ingredients. Vegans avoiding something that tastes like meat though? That's not true for the vast majority in my experience.
  17. And they would be the people that voted leave.
  18. It was alright. Not worth the massive price tag. Maybe it's good for baking and stuff. Palm oil free though which is always good.
  19. Yeah! Love this. They do a greek style kebab now as well. My local big Tesco has just started selling Natura vegan butter - exciting! Haven't tried it yet. Going to go in hard tomorrow morning with some toast.
  20. I had this as a child! Actually it was my brother's, and he still has it. Totally enthralling! EDIT: Wait! It was the After Man book I had, not Man After Man.
