I hope they've sorted out all the bugs :
Presumably that youngster being "used" in the ad has given their informed consent?
No doubt about it, at all, of course it's made up.
It didnt just appear out of the Big Bang.
Being far removed from any form of Boffinry, i much prefer the Billy Connolly version :
"She shouted get him Rover and he jumped over ..."
If they really cared about the little guy, why don't all the mega rich superstars, the likes of Thom Yorke, Taylor Swift et al start up their own Music Label?
As an aside, if "stealing" music was good enough for major record companies in the 70's, then why be surprised when others do likewise? Compare :
Mr O's articles often refer to insufficient or falling revenue. But one could rightfully ask, where does all the massive increase in revenue, in relative terms, go to?
I understand that tickets to see the first Glastonbury Festival or the Derek & the Dominos tour ( a series of gigs) circa 1970 were priced at £1 , yes 1 single GBP each.
That's £15 in today's value, adjusted for inflation.
Where on earth, well the UK, the US. can you see anyone live for that amount nowadays?
Take Scarborough for example, an open air venue, yeah you get piss wet through when it rains and it does, the shittiest "bands"/acts start from £37
Also, whatever happened to half price tickets for children?
Of course i am, don't you know that my wife is the (now thankfully ex ) Home Secretary?
ps you couldn't bill me as it being "parliamentary stationery" could you?
Ooooh, i think i have a cold coming on ......a tissue.
manic depressives were much sought after too.
The animated graphic had me laughing out loud, again after all these years.
Senator Warren is a Democrat.
She rails against the monopoly power of huge business, particularly tech firms, such as Google.
Yet she's supported Obama for over 7 years. in bending over backwards for Google, notwithstanding being elected by.
And she wants to be running mate to the mega-sold out would be (probably will be ) POTUS Clinton?
Weird. Or par for the course.
At least our Sturgeon seems to be flogging a dying horse simply for the hell of it.
There were 30,000lbs of Bananas, yes there were 30,000bs of ........mashed Bananas.
And of course, the brokerage agent is likewise being prosecuted for aiding and abetting an illegal activity and profiting therefrom.
Yeah, thought not.
I wonder what the relative percentages, Remain/Leave will become when Sturgeon, sorry i mean Scotland are told that their bill is £12bn a year and their "allocation" of hitherto non-EU migrants is circa 500,000.
Oxford County Council, maybe City i dunno, here's looking at you.
Reason for my success, i had a perfectly valid ticket on full display.
The time of the "issue" would suggest the warden was chancing his/her arm just before clocking off.
It's about time that issuing such tickets in such circumstances is a CRIMINAL offence. By both the warden and the head honcho of the council. I did think of reporting it, as fraud*, to the Police at the time but am fully aware of what their response is.
well, it is a possibility that Mars will be swamped** with immigrants in the none too distant future, hopefully within the remainder of my natural life.
** relatively speaking.
To help the Mexicans build that wall? To keep the yanks IN.
Easiest of responses to France.
Apply the law, international standards :
Return those would be illegal immigrants to the last safe country they passed through ie France. By air if necessary, parachutes on request.
It is perfectly clear from the results what the one overriding issue is.
Call me what you will, but an image of Deliverance entered my mind.
In that case may Blair be allowed to file an amicus brief on behalf of the US government and become a co-defendant?
This morning a close neighbour had one fitted.
The "operative" spent one hour installing the meter followed by three more hours doing nothing but sit in his van and be on the phone most of that time. Dressed at all times in what appeared to be a very bulky and dayglo green jacket. Even though he was safely parked on her drive.
Unknown but for how long? That''s one pretty lass.
The FWB* will be along shortly to campaign to have such women removed.
Are there any as i have a few e-books and no end of friends, er i mean potential borrowers.
Prior art, non fiction too
John Kongos - Tokoloshe Man (must be on you-tube, i'm too lazy* to look)
* at the mo.
is that the existing law, as it's quoted exceptions, places "IP theft" on a far higher plane than violent and the most heinous of sexual offences.
Wow, some civilised society right there. Not.
Hell, the most likely next POTUS can't even comply with her own countries rules, regulations and laws so what chance Europe's?
should it have been ..."against the high profile UK mis-parenting site"?
Didn't Genesis refer to selling England by the pound, not Britain?
Not a particularly difficult track to learn is it?
I reckon my dog could drive the kid's battery powered car around that track given 20 minutes learning time. And sufficient treats.
If Holland, as a mouthpiece, is so in favour of investment in real, actual facilties, then why such severe opposition to any municipality that wishes to make real investment in real infrastructures?
If only a fraction of what the sister-in-law, a teacher, tells me then most of the current state education system is engaged in gaming the system (for higher self reward) and producing a whole load of future operatives for such underhand tactics.
Wouldn't it be better if the NCA or similar employed this Love guy in a job, a top job?
And gave "sex and travel" advice to the Yanks.
Okay, i've booked the Ex on the first flight, no guarantee required other than it at least tries to take off.
Bonus too, 4,740 kgs spare capacity, free to a good home.
Didn't the UoEA prove this very point?
Maybe they patented their process.
And precisely where on Mars are they gonna find yellow lines, street junctions and proximity to school gates to park the damn thing?
I'm just trying to learn French and German the hard way.
Such and similar financial practices, let's say misuse of public monies, have been endemic in UK public bodies for years.
The BBC and the list of attendees of the global warming farce? For what purpose?
For sale in our local charity shop : CD's 49p each.
so i has a rummage, selects one i actually want and a couple i'll give a listen to.
Just about to sort out the princely sum of £1.47 when the lady asks for 99p.
Yeah, that's correct, it's 49p or three for 99p. What value indeed.
And the best parts of this?
When that CD was made and sold, the musicians, songwriters, producers etc were ALL paid by the record company, or more correctly were supposed to have been paid.
And NO f*cking licence. No sign of one, at all. I just put it in the hi-fi, car, optical disc tray whatever and it just works*.
And when two of em go back for resale to someone else then the various artistes were still paid.
*Mind you, these days they tend to need de-amplifying by upto 50% to be bearable.
Perhaps the makers of "Prestige" wellies (what a dreadful analogy) should pay more attention to THEIR quality and asking prices.
Can i just have the lead photo as a screensaver? That should keep the buggers away.
Fear not, the BBC news website is not much of a news site these days.
Rather more of a propaganda opinion site in which the LBGTQ's are more than well represented.
Hmmm, i did wonder where my VPN originates from.
wasn't printed on paper with rounded corners else the froggies ( can i say that?) would be owing Apple serious money.
Oops sorry. That was the UK's own ex Home Secretary's husband. For which SHE claimed reimbursement.
Whack off to wacky Jacqui.
Oops, sorry again, forgot it is mealtime on the left side of the pond.
re Stevie :
S T U F F
Do i win a cocoanut? Or a goalfish?
I'm sick of forever hearing adverts on the BBC.
I no longer need your off switch. I'm yet another MS loser to Linux Mint.
If i can install it and use it, i did and i do, then anyone can.
ps thanks to anyone and everyone who used their real intelligence and skills to develop any part of Linux of whatever flavour. Plus the many (10,000's?) of articles offering guidance, help and tuition. Much appreciated.
dancing girls look awesome on that.
Saves all the travelling i 'spose.
is it too late to enter :
"RRS Las Malvinas are ours" with a subtitle "and staying that way".
Not allowed? Shame. Ok, keep with the Boaty McBoatface and show the world the Brits retain their sense of fun.
The 19-32 age group.
Wonder (actually i dread to think) what the results would have been had they looked at the ahem, 13 to 18 age group.
Officialdom has it that mental illness in the young is on a significantly upward trend. Something is causing it.
Would be a little unfair to blame it all on the Kardashians and entourage.
Anyone know if Stevie Wonder ever gained a PPL?
Either the punters have PURCHASED/BOUGHT a download or they've leased it. Choose one only. Typical greedy twunts, "purchased" when they want our cash as revenue, but only "leased" when they want it back or prevent you passing it on to your widow/estate etc.
And in which segment of revenue is that paid by broadcast radio, eg the UK's BBC Radio 1 which i believe pays the best part of £100 ($140 or so) every time it plays a song. Some of those songs must be owned by the "US record labels".
If i want to know anything i listen to the wife.
Mind you, as with Wiki's,.i have to treat it with caution, she only thinks she knows everything.
That the dancers are absolutely female?
Who knows, in this day and age, rather like their latest OS "10" there could be surprises lurking under the covers.
Aw, a wave of nostalgia for Dudley Moore and extras from the real life "10" has just washed over me. When i say washed i may be exaggerating a bit, a lot.
