Things you have been slow to realise

Makes more sense than James to be fair


#863

There was a specific song called do the conga

I thought the dance was ONLY applicable to that song. Whereas it is just a style of dance, a rhythm, and not always in a line either


#864

What about this particular conga song:


#865

There was a great conga scene in hollyoaks the other day


#866

That it’s a good idea to buy a tablet if you spend nearly 3 hours a day on public transport


#867

Is that riverdale?


#868

Yup


#869

All tortoiseshell cats are female

#871

Might prefer it to twin peaks


#872

Woah. Apparently it’s the same with calico, too.


#873

Something do with chromosomes: XX XY YY or something


#874

all cats are female


#875

How much of an influence Ennio Morricone has been on people whose records I buy.

I’d read that there were influences in the past, but in my head Ennio Morricone is intrinsically linked to the theme to The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, which doesn’t sound like anything I’d buy. But then last week I downloaded some compilations which had some of his other work and the penny has finally dropped.

The problem for me now is that he’s so prolific I don’t know where to start in catching up.

Harry Potter:

Knockturn Alley - nocturnally
Diagon Alley - diagonally

Only just realised, am sat reading the programme for a “Nocturne” event today and it clicked.

Feel SO fucking dumb :laughing:

😂 😂


#879

that the lyric in Blue Monday is “I can and shall obey”.


#880

As opposed to…?
(I always thought that, because it follows ‘I see a ship in the harbour’ there is a tendency to think ‘something something shallow bay…’)


#881

Yes exactly that. I’m very lazy with lyrics, so never really tried to work out what the shallow bay was exactly. And in my defence there’s limited enlightenment to be gleaned from analysing New Order lyrics.

I was just amused that a song I’ve heard a bajillion times over thirty years suddenly produced a moment of clarity during an ad break just before the tennis :-).
