Forum Thread Going on Keno's interesting facts thread - Pachelbel's Canon in D at 15:09 5 Aug 2020 This blew my mind the other day. The amount of popular songs directly lifted from Pachelbel's Canon in D. Amazing when you hear them one after the other, and this is only a short list. First, the original (written some time between 1680 and 1706); VIDEO And now the shameless copies; VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO VIDEO
Forum Thread Things you didn't expect to be any good but which surprised you at 16:46 4 Aug 2020 Ryan Gosling (he's a famous actor, Facters) decided to make a 'horror musical' with a mate, then they scrapped the stage production and just made an album of the music instead. Gosling sings and plays a fair few of the instruments. Oh and they roped in a children's choir for many of the tracks. It sounds like a disaster waiting to happen but is actually very listenable. VIDEO Edit: And proof it's really him singing and playing; VIDEO

Forum Thread I'm confused at 19:44 18 Jun 2020 Someone I know on facebook has put £100 on "blacklivesmatter" as first goalscorer in a Prem game. Apart from the fact it's a disgrace against the movement, how on earth would this work? Even if they have "blacklivesmatter" on the back of their shirts, that's not their name! Has he just thrown away £100? I do hope so.

Forum Thread Anyone see Seeing Allred on Netflix? at 12:33 7 Jun 2020 About women's rights champion and lawyer Gloria Allred. Not something I would've paid attention to ordinarily but watched because my GF was watching. Wow, what a woman. An absolute inspiration. What amazes me is that America has incredible people like this and yet they end up with Donald Trump as president! Highly, highly recommended. Make this woman president NOW!
Forum Thread Linguistic question at 16:35 4 Jun 2020 Is there a name for a word that you can ad to it and it becomes another word, or you can lob a bit off of a word and what's left is still a word? For example, venture and adventure. I was thinking portmanteau, but that's more two words smashed together to form a third.

Forum Thread Anyone got a screen cleaner they'd recommend? at 17:22 30 May 2020 Primarily for a MacBook Pro and a MacBook Air. I was about to buy one with thousands of good reviews on Amazon, but then in the negative reviews saw a couple saying it damages the anti-glare of Macs.
