  1. The random number generator (actives the magnet to execute bender) from that episode was a masterstroke.

    Pixies

    To answer the rest of your post (which I missed first time - it's getting late): They're American, formed about 1986, pioneered alternative rock music, released four critically acclaimed albums, split, and have recently reformed (the track you mentioned, Bam Thowk, is one of their new ones). And it's just "Pixies".

    Easy answer: any and all. Only Trompe le Monde dipped slightly in quality, but it's still great. Get them all, you wont regret it.

    Tom Waits Tunes...

    There were lots of copies in WH Smiths. It looks like this.

    Tom Waits Tunes...

    There's a good Tom Waits feature in this month's Word magazine (issue 24). A full 12 pages, including a picture of him jumping with glee over the railroad tracks with a drum on his shoulder.

    Tom Waits Tunes...

    To be honest, when I was first getting into his music I prefered his earlier work too, particularly Small Change as I've already mentioned. His later stuff certainly took me a while to get used to. Have you heard his live album, Big Time? It's got a great version of Red Shoes on it (which is off Blue Valentine if anyone's wondering why I mentioned it).

    Simple, it's pre-Swordfishtrombone. Sure it's a solid blues album, and if that's what you like then great, but just about everything post-Swordfishtrombone is highly original and vastly different from anything else out there, which is why people are so keen to recommend it.

    Every album from Swordfishtrombones onwards is essential, including his latest effort, Real Gone, which is also superb. Pre-swordfishtrombones, Small Change is definately my favourite - Step Right Up is one of my favourite Waits songs.
  9. It was fascinating because it was interesting documentry interspersed with torture for the presenter, but fair play to the guy, he was up for anything. I missed the start though, so I don't about his background. He must have some survival skills to even think about going into unexplored jungle.
  10. Extremely simple, extremely rewarding, there is no other FPS that has the same feel. I've been playing it for almost 5 years. CS really is gaming crack.
  11. I also jumped on the FF bandwagon at FF-X but jumped off again after about 45 hours - I just couldn't face continuing because it had just become so repetitive. The Boss battles were the only interesting battles - everything else was just a grind. Do the other FFs have different combat systems, or do they at least make the combat interesting? I'm tempted to give VII a go as it's getting so much praise here. Is it really that different?
  12. Excellent news. The source engine has seriously rekindled my love of Counter Strike. Plus the release of HL2 has brought in lots of new players, or easy targets as I like to think of them
  13. A lot's been said already about Tom Waits already on this forum, but as far as I'm concerned you can't say enough. He's one of the the most incredible singer / musician / song writers I've ever come across. Dazza - when I started getting into his stuff I too prefered his earlier pre-Swordfishtrombones stuff, but now it's the other way round. I still love Small Change though. Some of his later stuff is very difficult to get in to - The Black Rider for example took me ages to work out but I love it now. I can also highly recommend Big Time, which is a live album recorded at a couple of different venues. The live version of Telephone Call From Istanbul in particular is utterly suberb.
  14. Those women were in the nip!
  15. Loved it, my favourite RPG. Loved the battle system in particular. Graphically the best thing was changing your dragons form and actually seeing it morphing in the game. The Saturn can't really do 3d properly so I agree it was a bit ugly, but conceptually it was fantastic - some great ideas realised pretty much as well as they could be on the Saturn (a next gen update would be most welcome however). The story's great too with a nice ending. Great game.
