  1. Of the ones they listed, I'll give a pass to FFAF, Ad 7, DDF and SBF. I think Funeral was the one band of that style that kinda crossed over, had members at some point/in former iterations that were more SWM-y. Other bands in that list I liked too, like Juniper etc, but feel we could fill out a bracket of the bands that were more active here. Just from my dreadful memory of who was active when (and a list of tapes I have which helps), I'll submit The Arteries, Atomck, Bedford Falls, Captain Insano, Chains of Hate/Twist The Knife, The Cheapskates, Death of Her Money, Desecration, Dispatch,
  2. It feels so right that we've all come back together to rag on the exact same things as back in the old days.
  3. Can't see Hollywood changing your opinion on him tbh, but yeah you might enjoy the visual part. Keeping this thread on the Eisenberg topic, did anyone see The Art of Self Defense? I really enjoyed it personally, decent black comedy.
  4. That's not fair now Tim, some of these bands existed for a good 6 months.
  5. I'm just about to hit the last season too. I love and hate that show with equal measure.
  6. I got to the bit where they went to the barn at the halfway split in s2 of Walking Dead and never returned. Didn't dislike that season, but man it just seemed everyone found something they absolutely hated about that show and it just didn't sound fun. Now Mr. Robot is finished, I need to watch the last 2 seasons of that, and also catch back up with Better Call Saul as I only ever did the first season but everyone still seems massively on board with that. I blame this stupid raccoon I keep having to give bells to.
  7. I definitely am looking forward to finally seeing new Le Pub whenever I'm home and able to get around more than The Village.
  8. I never made it into the second season, people turned against it so hard.
  9. Yeah exactly, it was a good exercise in technical filmmaking and I was definitely thinking the same thing about some of the scenes with regards to mentally working out the tech side. The approach made it feel less real than a lot of other films I think. It's just too perfected, it feels like every movement is rehearsed until every milimeter of movement was nailed. I think I'd just as much watch a version of the film that was someone running after the cameraman with a handycam showing just how it was all done.
  10. I'm curious as to how Hollywood will stack up on a second viewing, mainly due to the I liked it, but it took over an hour of watching for it to somewhat click. Up til that point I was mainly enjoying the performances and the attention to detail that QT always puts in. Last night I got around to 1917, which I'm in two minds about. The cinematography is of course excellent, but throughout I was wondering if the film itself was compromised because of it. But at the same time there's plenty of good war movies already, so does it matter? It did kind of feel like a video game, but agai
  11. If you've seen Interstellar and Gravity, you absolutely do not need to see Ad Astra. What a snore.
  12. Nice, I'm gonna check that out. Thanks Coach. Ha, as I was reading this I was like 'Im sure that's the one I went to' and remembering seeing you at the end. They were always a fun band to see, and always been bummed I've not seen them play anywhere local here. I think the main thing that made me sad in the early 2010s when SWM started to fade was that it wasn't replaced by something newer, and better by young kids who had the energy and enthusiasm to do such things. I would've totally been on board with that, hell it would've probably spurred some joke war between sites or somethi
  13. I stopped the trailer halfway through because I was instantly sold, but the Kermode review made it sound like it would be a better short film or TV episode. I still plan to see it though, it does look cool but I have tempered expectations at least.
  14. OK not specifically covid related, or really a conspiracy, but Alex Jones needs some representation.
  15. Let's see if Twitter embeds automatically... (it does! just paste a link in.) This dude is my favourite person of the day. Watching the host squirm when he keeps refuting everything he says is great. Chamath used to be a Facebook guy, then went on record saying he regretted it and thinks Facebook sucks. He's good people, and he looks super high in that photo which adds to it.
  16. I want that awful indie band who threatened to fight me to come back.
  17. Adore Face to Face, one of my favourite live bands for sure. Caught them again a few years ago in a venue that was hot as hades as they were still amazing, something came up last year when I was supposed to go see them with Lagwagon and H2O locally (but it turned out I got the wrong date anyway, so should've still been able to go, dammit).
  18. So as mentioned in another thread, all the uploaded images and stuff from the old SWM are basically in unlabeled folders that you don't know what you'll get until you open them. The first thing I find is the SWM outing to El Paso where we all look super young. Guessing this was.... 2005 or 2006? Was a super fun night for sure, at Cardiff's finest Mexican eatery.
  19. Only time I saw Good Riddance was at that Deconstruction gig in London in 2000 and they were fantastic, so psyched to see them on the bill. Plenty of time to catchup on the smaller bands I don't know at the moment. I will be truly gutted if normality isn't back by then, or knowing my luck a new wave will hit just before hand.
  20. Ah yeah that's a shame you weren't into it when we used to have PPVs on all the time, I got burnt out on it all tbh... I preferred UFC before they flooded their roster with everyone from their reality show, most of whom just weren't as skilled as the big names of the time. It looks like it's settled since then, but I never got the urge to jump back in. I'd go see a live fight again for sure, they were always fun. I was always into hockey growing up, but moving here cemented the love which I wasn't expecting. Used to be a half season ticket holder for my local NHL team and a wardrobe full
  21. This all hit right in the middle of me having an insane amount of things to do... had friends over from back home and luckily they came and went before it hit, but I was supposed to go to Tampa for 4 days for WrestleMania and a bunch of other things with one of my best friends which got cancelled, I haven't seen Inter Miami kick a football yet despite having paid up like $300 to them (they still keep taking my money, thanks lads) and the hockey season got upended too, and I was going to see Adam Sandler with my inlaws. So a bunch of things got 'postponed' (read: no refunds) but at least some w
  22. The first season of Dirty Money was so good, I need to hunker down with the new ones for sure. Yeah I'll rename this one now so people bored of TK realise it's not just that.
  23. OOOOOOH yeah that was a good one. It just kept getting crazier while the parents were all just "yep, this seems completely fine". I'm going to start on Atlanta's Missing and Murdered, and How To Fix a Drug Scandal next. Most of the way through McMillions, but they kinda took a fascinating story and dragged it out a bit much.
  24. I think what annoys me the most about 5G the most is it's essentially marketing gumph, and the telcoms company a friend works for has had to sink $1bn into just so their competitors don't have a leg up over them (they're pretty small in the grand scheme of things, but big enough to be a player). You don't need to make up the world's most stupid conspiracies to find it tedious, but here we are. Alternative version of the poster I saw on Chi's wall the other day. South Wales' dumbest people all in one place. Twammers.
