What don't you get

They need to a better deal, brexit was the biggest fuck up in decades. It doesn’t need to be so obstructive and isolationist.

I know I’m probably one of the curmudgeoniest curmudgeons on here, and I promise to do better (ish), but…

Clothes sites that champion celebs wearing their gear. I’m looking at you Percival (Jordan North ffs. Something else I don’t get).

Wax Clothing - “Ryan Reynolds loves our Porto shirts (or whatever)”.

Puts me off buying.

Happy Sunday. Namaste :pray:t3: x

Also the current trend for male models looking down at the floor in a ‘ moody’ way, usually wearing a cap, on fashion sites

see also: dj duos looking similarly moody on flyers/posters/mix streams, one stood a bit behind with hands in pockets as though auditioning for the Krays, Sleaford Mods or Audio Bullys

Nail on the head… lol funny to watch for a few minutes, there’s a clip from a few weeks ago where Soweto DJ Fka Mash came on after some moody duo and a booth full of clones didn’t know what to do as soon as he upped the tempo with the first track…lol

Joe Biden. Watching his speech and Q&A… fucking hell! Hard watch. He just said he chose Trump as his running mate. Embarrassing.

It’s getting to the point that Trump will be a shoe in with this idiot.

Read an article that said his doctor’s had brought in a neurologist/Parkinsons specialist to the White House 8 times in the last 12 months.

Seems to me that it’s symptoms of either dementia related to Parkinson’s or the medication prescribed to deal with it. Sadly i’ve experience of both through my parents.

He should have done more disco.

I still don’t like his voice. Vic Reeves is a better club singer.

when I first started getting into music , I did the usual thing of watching TOTP and taping the Top 40 on a sunday, This was 88-89 so a lot of cool stuff was charting - early house, hip hop, Soul II Soul etc, + all the Stock Aitken Waterman nonsense, What I could never stand was when what sounded like something from another century popped up like Rod Stewart or Elton John and you had to sit through 3 minutes of some absolute dirge, usually every week as it inevitably sold loads. Just the shittest music ever, bloated white middle aged stadium ballads and half hearted rock churned out to support an escalating coke habit.

Elton John. Sure some of his peak stuff is undeniable (and I loved it as a child) but so is the level of schlock. If I have to hear another one of his bathetic dirges… The phenomenon of Elton John reminds me of nothing so much as the rise of a corporation–some key early bits, widening outlook through devolution into mass popular taste (EJ in the 80s–not a pretty picture), carefully curated revenue streams via tours etc, and then finally exponential growth through M&A–musicals, he’s done six of them. Of course this trajectory could apply to a lot of musical acts these days, but with Elton it seems particularly apropos.

I distinctly remember the Brit Awards from 89 it must’ve been (the infamous Sam Fox/Mick Fleetwood year?). I too was finding my own way through the musical minefield and was naively expecting some Manchester Vibes in the Area or something equally as cool and edgy. Instead Fairground bleeding Attraction seemed to clean up, dull as fuck. That song Perfect, jesus goes through me, nails down a blackboard. I cannot stand it.
