beatlebug:  "the world-renowned band The Off Beats (preferably The Offbeats, but I'm going by what the program says) showed up and rocked the house."  That's fantastic, SG! Good on you for going out there and actually getting it done.  I admire that chutzpah. I'm not so sure about the name, though. What if your jealous detractors hector you by reversing the syllables?

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

I am halfway through creating Beatles Sim characters for The Sims 3. For those who play, or would like to see what they look like, they are available at:

http://www.thesims3.com/mypage.....8/mystudio

They are by no means perfect, since it's hard to get a likeness down, but I may revisit them at a later date and tweak them a bit. So far, I got John and Ringo up, and will have George and Paul up before too long. =3

(Not sure if this is in the right topic, but it's what's going on currently so I thought I'd share ^^)

 

@Midori78 I've followed your example and given the lads a go in Sims4. Blimey, they're difficult to get right! These are the results of my first attempts. Still a lot of finetuning to do, but I'm afraid I'll only make them worse if I do...! I think George turned out the best so far (or the least bad...). John's about the worst.

I voted in the Scottish Elections. 

Interesting to see if the Conservatives do beat Labour to become the second main party in Scotland; an outcome so unheard of only a few years ago. If it does happen I wonder what Labour will do in Scotland in the near future, its not like Corbyn and the rest are doing any good down in England and I'm pretty sure I read that Wales may also be turning their back on Labour. Would be in an incredible mess with a twit in charge to lead them out, bumbling from one cock up to the next whilst few in his party take any note of his opinion or leadership.

I have had a shocking last hour or so!

First I went down to vote in the London Mayor/Assembly elections.

Voted for the Labour candidate for Mayor, because the Mayor - whatever party - is pretty independent of the party, voting Green for second preference. For my two votes for the London Assembly (constituency and list - which is seats awarded proportionately depending on votes across London), and for the first time in my 30 years of voting, I felt unable to vote for the Labour Party because of the current leadership. I didn't know what I was going to do until I got in the booth, and then both votes went Green. My first time not voting Labour.

Then I went to the post office to get some money out of my account.

I knew I had around 50/60 pounds left in my account until next getting paid on Tuesday. I was going to take out half, and grab the rest on Saturday. Selected balance on the machine to check my balance, and it showed over £1400 in my account. I say at least because if I read it correctly, it was a lot more than that, a hell of lot more than that.

Now, my friend who helps me out with dealing with things like my benefits, got a phone call at the end of last week to do with something about arrears, they didn't go into details. He told me to expect a letter, which hasn't arrived about it. So I don't doubt it's to do with that. If I have been underpaid by over £1400 that is shocking. If I read the figure right it is beyond shocking. I'll know the amount for definite tomorrow when I go back down to double-check what's in my account. Either way, a wonderful surprise windfall!

And there is one vote already lost for Labour, can't wait to see how much, if any, damage has been done by voting in Corbyn. I doubt this will have any effect on him staying in charge but it will surely make a few more arsonists ready to set the camps on fires. I also wonder if there will be any sighting of the Lib Dems or if they are still in exile.

Would just like it noted that

a) David Cameron hasn't bothered his backside to come to Scotland or even look like he gives a shit about us (hopefully showing up the bullshit he spouted in the Independence Referendum that many swallowed and so won't do in the next);

b) I have no idea who the Labour leader is in Scotland. They are that irrelevant to me.

Do you have plans for what you will do with the $$, RN? You have the "new" sofa already. You just had to get a new tv. Your laptop isn't too old. I guess you could save it up for a rainy (or sunny) day.

@meanmistermustard 
I have no idea who the Labour leader is in Scotland. They are that irrelevant to me.

But isn't that more to do with you, and not Labour? Here in London, I know who the Scottish Labour Leader is - Kezia Dugdale, and I believe she is making powerful arguments about how Scotland's new powers should be used. Is it her fault that you're not prepared to look at her new Labour proposition for Scotland, or is it your fault for not examining what Labour are offering because Labour disagreed with Scottish Independence?

This is what worries me about the Scottish political situation at the moment, that instead of looking at the political offers being made, a large section of the population who were defeated in the independence aren't looking at the political offers, and which most supports Scotland in its current situation, but blindly voting SNP - who are refusing many of the powers given them - just because the SNP agree with their vote on independence.

I have three things in mind: the Lennonology book, which I've really wanted but has been outside my price bracket; a Freeview recorder, which will allow me more than one channel and not having to miss things as I'll be able to record them; and, possibly, a new laptop so that I have a backup if one goes wrong (you'll remember how scary it was for me when my last one started going wrong, and how I was trying to work out how many months it would take to save for a new one), a backup might be a wise investment whilst I have unexpected money.
