My wife has been devouring it since we found it 2/3 weeks ago and what I've seen so far, it's pure genius.

Watching Channel 4 News the noo. I know they're as establishment as the rest but give them their due, they're like a dog with a bone when they get their teeth in. It's Arron Banks getting slaughtered this week. They exposed Cambridge Analytica and ultimately put them out of business and they got Grayling over Seaborne so there's at least a semblance of independent investigation going on.

We are going back almost 10 years here rumpus (I would imagine) but minijc has mellowed in that time. I similarly was the target of his weird obsessions and gratuitous insults, an immaturity that we can't possibly forget. You might be man enough to forgive and forget but I'm too immature and unchristian to turn the other cheek.

Thought it was the weakest of all, wife thought the same.

But then yesterday found myself making reference to "the big bowl" and pointing out differences between catholics and protestants to my (Irish) wife.  :smile: :smile: :dunno:

You never once put me in my place, also who really cares it's the internet.

Rocket I've never had an obsession with you, if we go back 10 years I was still a baby so that would explain a lot for my interactions, nae an excuse for being a dick but heyho.

@minijc

If I remember correctly you were obsessed with Rocket. Kinda Love/Hate relationship.

You used to guide him to what you thought were decent shops in Aberdeen so he could buy (in your opinion) decent clothes.

The Great Man humoured you and played along, at the same time ripping you a new one which apparently went straight over your head. I found that amusing.

Never mind, all done in jest. Hope all good in your world and you're keeping well.

I don't recall that at all, I only really use two shops in Aberdeen, Hanon and Pure although been a while since I've been in either.

Finally got round to watching Leaving Neverland.
It’s pretty lurid but benefits from a very straight-forward matter-of-fact style and is absolutely 100% believable.  The second part is particularly powerful. That said, my mind was made up about Jackson years ago.

Anyone who doesn’t believe the content of this documentary can fuck off really.

Strange quote. It's impossible for anybody who is sane, who has a functioning instinct and who doesn't have any vested interest to not believe the documentary. After all, to orchestrate this many diverse  people to construct a lie would require the best acting performances of all time, from ordinary people without any acting history.

Jackson was a paedophile, period. I think how he became one is the more interesting aspect. That father of his (Michael Jackson's) has the answer would be my guess.

I haven't watched it and don't think I ever will. You got by what folk are saying, it seems that he was indeed a serial paedophile. It was obvious to those of us who grew up in the same era that he did that was a weird fucker by the time he reached the age of 21 and just became an even more bizarre character as the years rolled on.

However I do have a huge problem with all these paedophile stories emerging about him ( and others like Saville) only emerging after they've died. Yes the stories do seem to be credible but I'd far rather their accusers had come out with their stories when they were still alive so that the accusations could have been tried in a court of law. I'm fairly certain that amongst the genuine abuse survivors, there are probably a number of fake accusations by chancers looking for a wedge of compensation. You cannot libel the dead we are told so they've got nothing to lose in doing so and quite a lot to gain....nice wee newspaper serialisation of their story, possible payout from the accused's estate or statutory compo from the government etc.

It seems as if more and more radio and TV stations are banning Jackson's music. I loved his "Off the Wall" and "Beat It" albums but hated everything from Bad onwards. ( I was very young when he was doing his Jackson 5 stuff, it's ok but wasn't into music much at that point because of being so young). Very sad if his musical legacy is wiped from the annals of history but seems like that is what is going to happen.

I didn't intend to watch it either, didn't bother with the first episode but started watching the 2nd one and was captivated by the testimonies. I get what you're saying about not coming out sooner and agree with it broadly but on this occasion, the two victims could not have spoken out sooner, for various reasons. The damage Jackson did to them and their families was severe, the guilt of the mothers being deep.

I thought this weeks Alan Partridge was a huge improvement on the rest of the series so far. Almost vintage Partridge.

The Full English with 'Arry's vets was tragic viewing. But addictive too. Such sad creatures many of them. And quintessentially English, which alone makes them unlikeable.

Ach you should've said. I could've saved you some life. Limmy isn't understood nor appreciated by the vast majority of you. He only appeals to minorities like us. I went to the Fringe to see him last year. His one two buckle my shoe in the homemade show is probably my fav scream out loud belly laff I've ever had on TV. You just keep away fae Limmy. You wouldn't get it.
