We did well but got sloppy at a penalty and gifted them an interception try. That put the game out of reach. We won the bodycount though. Scotland scraped past Italy in a very wet, very nervy game. We're up against Argentina in the quarter-final, they are finally playing to their potential so it cou...

All welcome for an internet Cipi Tao at 8pm BST tonight. Our lot are in red and seem to do little more than stride agressively towards their opponents pointing and shouting "Come and have a go if you think you're hard enough" in Tongan. Not for us the fancy hokey cokey like haka of effete ...

South Pacific Solidarity

I call upon all those with South Pacific ancestry, real or imagined*, to join me in supporting our noble Tongan brothers against the Forces of Evil in the Rugby World Cup this evening. Victory is unlikely, but would guarantee widespread hilarity and lasting humiliation. Go Sea Eagles! In other news,...

Nah, only kidding. However, the fact that they allow the continued existence of a political party whose stated goal is the dissolution of Canada scares me, just a little. It's called democracy. :D Most countries have parties who want devolution of power or a separate state for a nationalist or ethn...

Ahhh! Damn! I don't care about the years - I'd see 'em in a heartbeat! I can't tell you how many times I played "Destination Venus" all those years ago. Another band I didn't see the first time around, due to where I was living. Loved that record, though. I just checked, they have re-rele...

I mentioned this to a mate last night and he reminded me he used to own an early 1980s 7 series and it was terrible. We then got round to the laugh out loud awfulness of the FIAT X19 (a front subframe that would rust through in months, string for wiring and fragile body panels that were permanently ...

One of the strangest experiences I had was seeing the Ramones on their "farewell" tour. There were kids there that weren't even born the first time I saw them! Woof! - Scott Ramones t-shirts seem to be fashion items here, it is strange to see people wearing them who couldn't have seen the...

I only looked at a couple of these since most of the names meant nothing to me: FIAT Multipla: he says works beautifully but is ugly. This makes it one of the 50 worst cars of all time? Top 50 ugliest maybe. BMW 7 series. "Perfectly constructed, astonishingly fast and utterly besotted with tech...
