    My musing wasn't all that Random.

    Black Lace appeared in Rita, Sue and Bob Too. They like gangbangs against the wall.

    Maybe my brain made some sort of subliminal connection.

    I quite like superman. The lead singer of black lace looks exactly like one of my mates from school. I think everything else by black lace is shit though.

    One of the most northern things I've ever done was see Black Lace in a Miners Welfare Club. It was exactly as you'd imagine.

    I wonder if any school of the time didnít have some poor cunt who got renamed Jonny Briggs due to some unfortunate happenstance of likeness and spent their years being heckled constantly with the theme tune

    It's amazing how bad tv picture quality was in the 1980s.

    No-one ever used to moan about it though, probably because tellies were so small you could hardly see the picture.
    It didnít look that bad. What you are really experiencing is how dreadful recording mediums were in the 80ís
    I dispute that - show me some live TV from the 80s to prove you are not recalling with rose tinted spectacles.

    The weight of tellys then was also ridiculous. In fact each telly came in its own furniture cabinet ready to catch fire when the telly blew up.
    Iím open to suggestions on how to achieve that...

    The definition was terrible. But remember, while the resolution was low most of us have PC monitors the same size as TVs only posh rich cunts could afford. CRTs maxes out around 32Ē.

    They were crap but when you look at an old show on YouTube bear in mind itís often what someone taped off their telly 35 years ago on their Magnavox VHS they bought from Dixsons. In LP mode

    I live about a ten minute walk from The Embassy Club.

    Once saw a woman sat calmly outside it supping a pint with an open, bleeding head wound on my ride home from work.

    That sounds brilliant and horrific. Mostly horrific but it's something to tell the grandkids (or randoms on the internet). I once saw Roddy Frame of Aztec Camera fame in a Catholic club in Euston. Bizarre mix if the usual crowd and Roddy Frame fanatics.

    Gimme the acronym. I can prolly figure it out :D

    Well, I went to RGC so..

    I dont think we know each other IRL. Be too weird if so; after about five years of interacting with user Goban we figured out that we knew each other from years back when we lived at either side of the bar in Drummonds. I talk to him regularly to this day but may well not have ever said hi to him again if not for EG and the small world theory being a biggie.

    I found myself in this thread earlier for reasons unknown... and all I could think was "How quaint, Nick Griffin seems pretty mundane vs Trump": https://community.eurogamer.net/thread/164624

    The darkest irony is Khanivor's drunk post being somewhat prophetic from 2009.

    The Tories will get in and it will all be "Let's get this proper, OK?" and then they will bore us and LAbour will get in and they will go "WhaHey!Chicken Oriental" and then the Liberals will go "Yes, at last!" and then the Tories will get in and it will be "Would you like to have the right to have children with that" and then the BNP will take over; the racists having become the 'anti-euro & poofs' fringes of the Tories and the 'rich fuckers must die (and leave their money to the Harringate Municipal Pool) and Maggie was a cow' equivalents and the paty will have become viable because the current campaign against them remains hampered by earlier efforts which were no better then 'Nah-Nah- Nah-Na-Yer-Thick Caaants'.

    This is staggering tbh, thousands of complaints over an inoffensive necklace. The irony is that the people complaining are likely the sort to call other people snowflakes without seeing the irony

    I liked Chocky.

    Chocky was a giant blob thing that would appear in your bedroom at night and teach you how to destroy the world.

    Heh, we had the Chocky book at our school which ended up being like the necronomicon. The school legend was if you read the book, chocky would possess you, so we avoided it like the plague.

    No wonder itís so scary, though. Wyndham knew what he was doing.

    Chocky was ace too, and definitely terrifying. There was also a show about some alien who wrote backwards which I seem to remember liking. I think it was part of Words and Pictures

    Most of the kids stuff wasn't really scary, it was crap, even more so in retrospect.

    There was some pretty thought provoking stuff out there though.

    Look for Noahs Castle for a bit of 1970s light kids entertainment.

    Threads was also pretty brutal and made me shit my pants. But it wasn't supposed to be for kids I think.
