    Photo editor apps?

    Does anyone know a good app (preferably free) that I can get where I can turn a photo black and white but keep certain parts of the photo colour. So for example a photo of a nice meal with a bunch of roses on table, have everything in black and white apart from the red of the roses. Thanks in...

    This sums it up for me

    The Haircut One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next...

    Stone Roses to reform?

    So its heavily rumoured that the Stone Roses will announce a reunion tomorrow? What do people think? Anyone see them first time round? Obviously money talks but I dont see it as a bad thing. The only worry is Ian Browns voice which has never been the greatest. Their debut is a classic and I...

  9. Harshest Musician on Musician insults

    Some of these made me properly LOL! 30. Wayne Coyne on Arcade Fire “I get really tired of their pompousness [sic]… We’ve played some shows with them and they really treat people like ****. People treat Arcade Fire like they’re the greatest thing ever and they get away with it… They have good...

    To the Wycombe Players....

    Thanks. Your pathetic and very long winded ring-a-roses goal celebration I am sure had the desired effect on our team. If that did not wind up the boys then nothing would. So thanks again!
  13. Short vid of the away support at Barnet

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZrjxR1xW4E Two things of note: 1) Look at that slope! (heard about the hill, but never realised how bad it was) 2) I thought the Guns N' Roses went down quite well

    Question Use Your Illusion I or Use Your Illusion II?

    Drunken conversation between a mate and I the other day ended up with us arguing the merits of the two Guns N' Roses albums that came out back in 1991. My friend was very much in the 'II' camp (features "You Could Be Mine" and he's a huge fan of "Civil War"), whilst I much prefer 'I' (the better...

    Paul Sturrock Can do No Wrong!

    ..... Well he can't can he? If it's not doing a great job to keep one player satisfied (Granty), or showing great determination to get stuck into a sticky project, or his ability to bring in a whole new team of signings, or his ability to show he has thought of using one extra formation, then I...

    Celebrations? **** Off

    It's Roses and Quality Street at Christmas. Celebrations are a pale imitation. If somebody offers you something from such a box or tin, do the decent thing, and punch them to within an inch of their wives. They have to learn.
