Not much...

...except that after immersing myself in the lyrics for further analysation of my Floydmare, I finally listened to The Wall in its entirety yesterday. T'was amazing! beatlemaniacs_02_gif Excuse me for a second while I add it to my list of favourite albums. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

 

I think that @Beatlebug and @pepperland would approve of my newfound Floydlove quite a lot.*

Hooray!a-hard-days-night-george-9 Welcome to the fab world of Floyd, second only to the Beatles (oh, and Zed Leppelin of coursea-hard-days-night-ringo-10).

We made this little forum to worship them, so feel free to go over there and join in (there are only three active usersa-hard-days-night-paul-4).

Okey dokey! I'll think about joining sometime soon. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I feel obliged to listen to more Led Zep-- I've got their greatest hits album (and I love it), so I see no reason why I shouldn't get into them more.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

beatlemaniacs_02_gif Yes! They are amazing and have so much more cool stuff! (If you'd like some recommendations based off of what kinds of music you enjoy, I'd be happy to help! a-hard-days-night-george-9)

And don't stop at The Wall. There's More (not that album particularly but I mean more Floyd); this chart may aid you in your explorations. Best of luck apple01 

Thanks, SG! This'll come in handy for sure! a-hard-days-night-george-9 Hmm, I think I'll give The Dark Side Of The Moon a listen next. Then maybe I'll just skip to Syd's solo stuff since I've already heard some of that. a-hard-days-night-paul-10 Decisions, decisions!

 

And, y'know, since we're on the topic and all, I guess now you could say that I've laid down all thought; surrendered to the Floyd. a-hard-days-night-john-6

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 think you'll find that very few care about Labour in Scotland at the moment because their policies are a mess, bouncing about like a rubber ball as they try desperately to resemble something like their partners down South yet distinct enough for Scotland, no one is really sure what they stand for or what they're message is, their party is a mess, we haven't forgotten their actions in the Independence Referendum (yes it matters), and Corbyn, who ultimately gets the vote, is a total joke of a Leader. Not exactly standout candidates for the vote. But yeah, blame it totally on us for not liking Labour and suggest we've got our fingers in our ears.

Its not about blindly voting SNP, it's also that Labour have done a hell of a lot of damage over so many years but instead of acting in a decisive, united manner have done next to nothing. Johann Lamont was on BBC Scotland slapping Labour on the back for the huge step of knowing they were going to get a battering instead of last time when they didn't. Everyone who is a Labour member just keep repeating it looks like a disaster. A party ripping itself apart.

And its not just Scotland. It looks like they are going to lose control of the Wales Assembly.

Do DSOTM. There's a reason it's as famous as it is-- it's their best album (in my humble opinion).

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'.

Cool!

Cheers for the compliment about my Beatle Sims. I have to admit I modded the game. The available hairstyles, skin tones, and eye colours make it so much harder to get a likeness. There isn't any DLC for Sims 4 afaik, except the expansions, which aren't nearly as interesting as what we had in Sims 2 or 3. There are some nice mods and CC, though. 

I have all of the Sims 3 expansions and stuff packs, but it won't run on Mac, not through Origin, anyway, and I can't be arsed to spend a whole day installing and patching using the discs. It'll crash anyway, which is sad. Sims 3 had some great content and making a Beatley world is not too hard with that much stuff to choose from. Sims 4 really is a drag so far, in that regard. There aren't even any drums! So, I've got Ringo on the violin for now.

I'd pay for a Beatles expansion pack. Made a list of what I think should be in it, too. I just might email it to EA.

I am so sorry to hear that, @HongKongLady, and offer my condolences.

Knowing her daughter must reflect her mother, she was a remarkable woman.

I know she was wonderful, because you are.

I mourn your loss.
