That was one reason I suggested just listing votes which can be totted up by whoever's running the show. The semi-inevitable snafus were another

Collette says:
Maybe it wasn't such a bad idea TF. No offence to what others have nommed but I'm sure I'm not the only one who's thought to myself at times 'how the ****did that pile of **** get votes when mine didn't?

TheFoe says:
To a certain extent I put this down to an age thing. I do believe there is an element of voting for 60's/70's songs almost like open defiance against anything nommed in the last 30 years. Come on Collette, we all know modern music is either rubbish or pale imitations of the 60's/70's! ;-)

Collette says:
Ha ha Foe. Silly me, eh! :0)

Oh, while you're there, have you heard from Leftin lately? I wish the daftie wouldn't go AWOL for such long periods of time.

TheFoe says:
No I haven't Collette. The last time I spoke to him, (a couple of months ago?), he was going to be on a local radio station playing his music. Maybe he's got a record contract and is distancing himself from his cyber pals? To be fair he does do a lot of disappearing/reappearing, maybe he should give up music and become a magician! Don't know about you but I'm ready for a drink. Being thinking about bringing the dance/electronica thread forward to May. The only thing stopping me is the amount of voting threads that are currently active, however I can't see that changing any day soon.

Edit - the record contract dig was meant in a jokey way.

Collette says:
He's usually not away for this long though. But, I'm sure he'll be back sometime soon. I'm a worrywart when someone does a disappearing act. What's tonight's tipple then? I'm having the usual perry and a can of lager and watching I Know What You Did Last Summer. I miss the dance thread. Be cool if it was brought forward a bit. :0)

TheFoe says:
Tonights tipple? 3 pints of Stowford Press cider down my local and then finish off the Merrydown in my fridge whilst watching BGT and then MOTD. Beats trapsing round Bournemouth, paying inflated prices and then fighting to get a taxi. I have to think that otherwise I'll feel sad! :-)

Spacepig says:
Looks like a tasty pint TheFoe, never heard of it before, another one on to the 'must try' list.

I do confess though, when it comes to cider I prefer the scrumpy version, the cloudier and lumpier the better.

Had a very nasty experience with cider when I was 16. Never touched it since!

Spacepig says:
No drink for me tonight, a bit of over indulgence last night, well, it was pay day yesterday.

Instead, a nice little lump just waiting to be rolled up, and 3 new CDs delivered yesterday. Now that's what I call prep for a nice lazy Saturday evening.

Used to love Whie Lightning Collette, tasted horrible but was my happy juice. Spacepig, if you're ever in England let us know I'd like to meet up! Actually stuff it I wish we could all meet up and have a ball!! Sorry I'm a bit drunk, but I mean what I say.

Collette says:
Last time I drunk it was when I till stayed with my Mum and Stepdad, Foe. Went bouncing off the walls and puked all over my bedroom radiator and floor. That stuff was cheap as hell and had a kick like I don't know what. D thinks white cider makes me aggressive so I stay away from it totally now. :0)

I guess somone took offence to that lump of yours, Spacepig...

TheFoe says:
Lumps are neither big nor clever Collette! But SP I am attempting to grow my own, give it till summer and we are in bizzness. I can't drink Carlsberg export Stella, or indeed any strong beer/ale cos it makes me violent. Cider makes me a laughy drunk amd red wine a mellow nice to know drunk.

Collette says:
If you ever think about growing stuff like that Foe, you're going straight to my naughty step with no reprieve at all. I don't like those bad things that some people speak about here.

D reckons whisky makes him aggressive. Good...all the more for me. He can stick to vodka. :0)

TheFoe says:
Don't want the naughty step Collette, suffice to say cannabis does less damage to your body then alcohol, very rarely results in violence and doesn't drain the NHS resources like alcohol does. Legalize it NOW says I!!

Thefoe..I live in southeast london near a mental institution and believe me the more cannibis you smoke the more it changes the chemistry of your brain..Unfortunately a lot of people where i live smoke a lot of it..It does drain the nhs resources because someone as to treat the effects of brain changing...People forget that mental health issues actually cost the NHS...

TheFoe says:
True Neph but I do believe this is down to self control. A lot of cannabis users smoke from dusk till dawn, no different Imo to some alcoholics drinking in the same period.If people choose to smoke themselves silly everyday then they must be responsible for the mental health consequenses. I choose to smoke 1 a day in the evening and feel nicely chilled, much the same as an adult in this country miight have a little drink for the same purpose. At the end of the day, how many police vans and ambulances are called to pubs and clubs where alcohol is sold legally as opposed to over 3 million homes where cannabis is smoked illegally?

Spacepig says:
Not that sure that this is the right place for this, but the fact that someone seems to object to my personal little vices does not concern me in the slightest. The way I look at it, every weekend up and down the country, thousands of people are affected by idiots who seem to think that because they are not breaking any laws by getting out of their faces on a drug they can't handle, they can behave any way they want to. So if this means insulting, abusing and assaulting police officers, medical services, take away staff, or the general public, if it means fouling our streets, terrifying their neighbourhoods, city centres or even their own families, well, in their eyes that's OK because the law says they can go and get as out of their faces as they want to.
I have smoked hash/weed/pot, whatever you want to call it for over 35 years now. In that time I have come across many thousands of like minded souls in all sorts of situations. But I have never ever seen anyone get themselves royally wasted, then take it into their heads to go and assault a total stranger, or kick the hell out of someone because they support a different football team, or abuse or insult someone because they look different, or come from another country, or even another part of the same country. Nor decide to smash up their town centre, get involved in acts of vandalism, or go home to beat up the wife and kids.
I would never say that a good toot is for everyone, I fully understand Neph's point although I have very little experience personally of anyone affected in such a way. All I can say is that for myself, I would much rather chill with a couple of toots at home with my music on a Saturday night than brave the battlefield that any UK (or Irish) town centre turns into at the weekend, all down to effects of alcohol on people who really shouldn't be allowed anywhere near it.

...and well said TheFoe and Spacepig,and yes I used to be one of those
who had a 'number' first thing and a 'nightcap'....and witnessed some ugly
incidents along the way,didn't do me any harm though as I knew when to
stop.Ceased the noble weed etc in the late 70s and now into Camra Ales.
Right now there's a bottle of 'Old Crafty Hen' (6.5%) easing down the throat
and listening to 'Bat Chain Puller' by the Captain and it's going down a treat!
