    First Gigs

    Was looking at the Gigs thread and saw someone say they wish they could have gone to the Damned gig and got me thinking about the first gigs I went to. Was only just turned 16 for the first one, seems young to have travelled all the way to London with just a mate these days! First three: 1...

    A Review of the Current session

    Just one set of fixtures left in the current session and thought that perhaps time for a quick review of where we are: The first thing that strikes me is that predicting is down to luck with just a bit of common sense, for instance Oxford v Carlisle top v bottom, although in the JPT had to be a...

  8. Pubey's DIY thread #23151

    So I'm planning to take a week off work in August to paint our house. Picked out a nice colour (Dulux Weathershield Sandstone) which is a standard waterbased masonry paint. At the back we've got a mixture of cast-iron downpipes, a PVC soil pipe and some other guttering down pipes. The previous...

    My Aunt's Boyfriend

    I thought I'd tell you all a story. My uncle (my mum's brother) died in 2001. He had a heart transplant in around 1989-1990 and his new heart was finally rejected about 12 years on. He had got to a point where he was on the strongest anti-rejection drugs possible, so there was nothing more the...

    RIP Ray Harryhausen

    Visual effects master, creator of "stop motion" animation, died today at the ripe old age of 92. Clash of the Titans, Jason and the Argonauts, the 7th Voyage of Sinbad and a host of other great films which succeeded due to his amazing talents. Hugely influential on the careers of Tim Burton...
  14. Breaking News Allegations of a Top Departure

    Word is reaching ShrimperZone Towers that allegedly our Youth Guru and all-round top man Ricky Duncan has been offered a job at Arsenal. Normally we would hint and wait for confirmation but that "we know something but can't say" provokes dissent on the Zone so we are posting this with allegedly...

    Her Birthday - The Bloke Dilemma

    It's Saturday and all I have got her is a bracelet. I'd like to spend 100-250 to finish the gift off. The problem is I have no chance to get anywhere other than Canary Wharf Shopping Centre as we are away first thing after work tomorrow. My only options are I go and find bits and bobs after...

    Aldershot very low iron girder death trap, health and safety issue!

    So they don't want to issue refunds. Then perhaps they may like a visit from health and safety about the disgusting low iron beams that i nearly concussed myself on at the back of the tiered seating stand. No warning notices just two very low girders that in the dim light you could not possibly...
