  1. Anyone had a look at Toem: https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/TOEM-2018259.html looks rather appealing…
  2. Hold on to your trousers people: actually deserves the live version - what a woman…
  3. I ain’t lying’ rhymes do pay me…
  4. Fun-time Friday at the car wash….
  5. Cos I’m louder than a bomb….
  6. My son walked up to the band at a park while we were on holiday this week and they very kindly let him get involved… The band Fellowship of Groove were tremendous guys - and that mix of Afrobeat and rap worked out brilliantly. Obvs I’m biased, but given no prep, his first time on stage, and never having even met the band, it’s pretty awesome…. https://www.instagram.com/p/CTJzpR3qi5-/?utm_medium=copy_link
  7. It absolutely is the perfect action film. I never watch it cos I don’t want to get too familiar with it. Along with 2049 it’s in a holding pattern until I get a new TV and soundsystem which will be at least a year away.
  8. I think it’s great you’ve ordered it. I also know it’s the only thing you could get.
  9. It’s game over man, game over…
  10. In case anyone is seriously considering this - and why wouldn’t you, my son just bought an almost identical Fotnite one and apart from being dead on arrival looks like it’ll jam every other bullet and leave you with nothing but harsh language to protect yourself.
  11. It also looks impossibly gorgeous.
  12. Isn’t the angle the 1210 lid stays up the most annoying thing…..it just not quite high enough, and yet is just high enough to put a record on. That and the lack of holder for the extra weight, otherwise just magnificent.
  13. Fantastic Fungi is a fantastic doc on well, it’s obvious innit.
  14. Bought - ta v much for that.
  15. It would indeed be worth it we’re my height adjustment not completely seized! Anti skate works fine and I think it’s all in the right place but there’s no avoiding sending them off tbh. Chaka doesn’t seem to mind:
  16. Funnily enough I’ve just located my rubber mats so will see if I can tell the difference. As for the annual lube, er might be a bit off schedule there…
  17. Ha well let’s be clear. I can’t afford to get anything at all. At the very least I should be getting both decks serviced, but I have a few other first world problems to address - a watch that needs a service and a car that needs a few things. I might have a look at direct mk2 vs gr comparisons just for the hell of it but tbh I don’t know if the rest of the system would really show up the differences anyway. Currently using a Creek 5250 and a pair of AE 109’s. Need a new mixer too but let’s not talk about that..
  18. Ah well a couple of reasons. - pure want - better sound not sure how significant that gain would be) - both decks need a service as I’ve had them for 30 years - pure want I’d only upgrade one which would be the main deck Both decks were running ancient 680el’s so just changed one for a new AT - XP5 which I’m pretty happy with tbh. Toyed with a more hifi cart but really deck need a service first.
  19. Now looking at bloody turntables - I can’t remotely justify getting one mind. Mustn’t get dragged in….. Anyways….
  20. Sorry gone well off topic, less talk more vinyl:
  21. Oh I agree, and I think the 1200 is just a masterpiece aesthetically and technically. When I stopped DJing and sold my sound system I tried out a LInn LP12 back to back with my 1200 and I honestly couldn’t tell the difference- nor could the salesman so I kept them. They’re good enough to hang on the wall tbh. I’ll add to this that of the 2 Creek amps I tried, the more expensive was clearly much better sounding - but the decks were as good as identical to me and this was in a dedicate listening room, back to back, same records, all other gear the same. Was a bit disappointed as I really fancied that Linn at the time. I know it’s be in bits by now though.
  22. Well you’ve certainly ticked that box. may MK2’s are still going strong 30 years after I got them and they were secondhand then so that will stay with you for life. Why a Technics for just a single deck though? Durability, ease of use, iconic looks and more? Wouldn’t an alternative at that budget been better just sonically? I expect that would be the hifi loons thoughts, but they’re really the Submariner of the turntable world IMO. Original and never bettered. And what did you have before?
  23. Snakes alive etc. That’s commitment right there. Do you have a pair? You don’t have a pair do you? Do you? Have a pair? On a flight of fancy recently I thought I could get a pair of GR’s but was quickly brought back to earth by some work the car needed. I didn’t even mention it to the wife…
