Re: Thunder.

November tour delayed by 6 months. Quite glad about that, as I don't fancy a sweaty crowd as we go into winter.

JLP, any views on the new thunder channel - specifically the cost? I know they'll try and engage with it, but £70 a year is a hell of a lot for a fan club.

Re: Rudi's Book

A couple of thoughts. 1. He claims to have already written a lot of this, if not the entire thing. 2. This crowdfunding effort is clearly in lieu of a publishers advance. 3. Which means that either he's been rejected by every publisher he's approached ( with a finished manuscript about Freddie Mercu...

Re: Flash Gordon 40th Anniversary Release.

I know what you mean, I'm glad they did it because otherwise we'd never know how it turned out, but on the other hand it now needs George Lucas to come in and retrospectively fix the FX!

Re: Flash Gordon 40th Anniversary Release.

I take your point, but it's unusual for that to be the case.

What did you think?

Re: The James Bond rumor topic

In these situations, I prefer to start with the source, and other than a quite from Brian saying " they never asked and they should have", I can't find anything. That doesn't mean that they didn't submit songs which got rejected, but it does, in my view, point in that direction. So, while "people on...

Re: Metallica Discussion: Metal up your a$$

It's interesting - I was never into the more extreme metals, it was always the more commercial stuff for me growing up. Of course the Black album sort of met me half way! I was never a massive fan of the rest of the material, but I have sat through a Metallica concert every Tuesday for the last 5 mo...

Re: Flash Gordon 40th Anniversary Release.

Watched the first hour last night. It does look incredible in terms of colour and clarity. However, it doesn't half expose the SFX! I obviously knew how much green screen there was, but had never previously noticed the fearsome War Rocket Ajax's translucent wings! And the sound wasn't quite sync'ed ...

Re: If wearing masks were mandatory, would you wear one?

"We do not recommend wearing facemasks for general wearing". https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-52153145/coronavirus-we-do-not-recommend-face-masks-for-general-wearing Good, but I still don't see the point in shops either.
