Things you have been slow to realise


#1882

You know that expensive vodka that’s in a bottle shaped like a skull? It’s made by…

…Dan Ackroyd.


#1883

Fairly mediocre vodka (especially for the price) but makes a mean whiskey decanter once you’re done :+1:


#1884

Chris De Burgh and Nick Drake also performed on stage together too. (As part of some end of term music performance thing at Marlborough College where they were both pupils)


#1885

I did know this once as I have read a ND Bio, but I had forgotten it so good to know!

I played rugby against Marlborough college a couple of times - my main takeaway was that their school was nicer than ours and had girls in it (which mine didn’t)

I believe she prefers to be called “woman who”…
This is a brilliant read by Jude Rogers about Threads, Where the Wind Blows and more. I watched a few clips after reading it and it’s the most frightening realistic drama I’ve ever seen. Not sure I could bear the final scene, if it’s anything like it sounds.

She’s part Irish, which is where the surname is from.


#1892

Is that because they’ve just been announced to be working on the latest Ghostbusters reboot?


#1893

It was!


#1894

Brilliant, gona try and find a copy.


#1895

I knew about that, just thought Fenty was a random word


#1896

Ghostbusters 3? Are we ignoring the sub par second film or the one that they allowed women to be in?


#1897

The fuck


#1898

oooof


#1899

They’re ignoring the Paul Feig reboot, it’s apparently going to take place in the same timeline / universe as the original two.


#1900

I just completely refuse to accept this.


#1901

If you thing anyone is going to believe that tripe…
