*points to avatar* =P


I think I missed the whole Heath Ledger obsession thing. I've not seen that film either.

I just have music on, don't think I can concentrate on tv tonight.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 08:06 PM


I just think he did a fantastic job as the Joker!

I can't concentrate on TV anymore. Music is a good shout!
I mainly just have the TV on in the background while I play on my phone lol

nonperson 30-12-2021 08:25 PM

I'm sure I must have watched him as the Joker...

Same. I put stuff on tv and then end up doing other things at the same time and not paying attention. There's so much new stuff I want to watch but can't because I end up "watching" the episode but having no idea what happened at the end of it. =(

Music is good. It's just making me want to be in the middle of a festival crowd though.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 08:29 PM

He's the best joker

some things I really try to focus on but.my brain is like NOPE!

Ah festivals. I miss those.
I'm going to a gig in May with my friend though!
Definitely looking forward to that!

nonperson 30-12-2021 08:32 PM

I miss live music so much! D=

It's like the only time I don't care about being around billion people at once. I'd have to go on my own nowadays though, waah.

Who're you seeing?

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 08:37 PM

Yeah same!
I went on my own last time.
It was fine!

I'm seeing poets of the Fall!
My favourite band!
They're from Finland

nonperson 30-12-2021 08:42 PM

It probably would be fine but argh, I dunno.

Hm, I don't know them.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 08:45 PM

They have a largeish following around Europe.
But they aren't huge
Which is good because it means affordable gigs!

nonperson 30-12-2021 08:54 PM

True true.

Gimme a song of theirs to listen to =P

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 09:01 PM

Carnival of rust is the first one I was shown!

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:09 PM

Listening now. I don't dislike it!

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 09:15 PM

Well that's good!

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:23 PM

But... it hasn't gripped me =P Maybe I'll listen to some other songs later.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 09:28 PM

Fair enough!
Yes do!
I'm never sure about new music tbh
I'm very set in my.ways but I made an exception for them!

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:36 PM

I'm quite obsessive in my music. Like if one song grabs me then I'll listen to that same band constantly for ages.

I'm currently scrolling through "new music" on Amazon but it's a mix of old and new.

Marylin Manson - Tainted Love!

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 09:42 PM

Yep me too!

I've mostly been listening to the same music I've been listening to for the last 15 years.
Though must say I've got quite into olivia rodrigo recently! Jasmine's influence!

Love that song!

nonperson 30-12-2021 09:47 PM

Who doesn't love that song =P

I've no idea who Olivia Rodrigo is...

Amazon music is good in that it likes to make a playlist of all my favs at the end of the year so at the moment I'm mostly listening to 2020 and 2021's most played songs. But if I take the time to listen to new stuff I do enjoy finding a new band to obsess over. That hasn't happened in a while though =|

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:00 PM

She was in high school musical the series then started a music career.
Jasmine is absolutely OBSESSED with her!
It's fun.to wind her up by pronouncing the name wrong. We tend.to call her olivier Rodriguez. Drives jasmine mental XD

I use amazon music too.
I like the 'my soundtrack' playlist.
I've discovered so many cool songs/bands that I'd never heard of through that!

nonperson 30-12-2021 10:11 PM

Ooh there's nothing worse than getting the name of someone's favourite singer wrong!

Yeah I use that too =P And the "liked songs" playlist.

Although the app likes to majorly ****ing spaz out sometimes and likes to delete my playlists and buffer downloaded songs... and then, probably once a year, likes to make me have to clear all the songs I've downloaded before it lets me open the app. =/

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:16 PM

Yep! Lol

I mainly listen to my liked songs!

I've had it for less than a year and have had no issues yet!

nonperson 30-12-2021 10:24 PM

I've had it for years and keep having issues. Dunno what's going on, but it;s currently not enough to make me move to Spotify =P

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:30 PM

I've never used spotify.
Tbh I was still using an ipod up until this year!
My entire family use Spotify

nonperson 30-12-2021 10:47 PM

I've never used it either. I know my sister does. It's probably the only alternative if I get pissed off enough with Amazon

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 10:49 PM

Yeah. I hear it's pretty good if you get premium. Otherwise you just get ads.

nonperson 30-12-2021 11:05 PM

I have premium. I don't even remember ads before then but I have been with them a long time now.

Cacoethes 30-12-2021 11:06 PM

Think I'm gonna try and sleep
I had zopiclone so fingers crossed I'll actually be able to sleep tonight!

Good night and sleep well!

nonperson 30-12-2021 11:07 PM

Good night and good luck!

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 08:51 AM

Morning everyone!

tamobhuuta 31-12-2021 10:26 AM

Hi :) how are you?

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 10:34 AM

I'm ok thanks :)
How are you?

tamobhuuta 31-12-2021 10:40 AM

I'm ok. Just a nice quiet day ahead of me. Do you have any plans?

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 11:20 AM

No plans.
Just another boring day!

tamobhuuta 31-12-2021 01:56 PM

I have a sore throat :( sad times.

one_step_closer 31-12-2021 02:00 PM

Have you got something to ease your sore throat Tamo?

Sorry you still have covid Beckie.

There's hardly anyone working in the chemist I go to because of winter illnesses and relatives having covid.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 02:17 PM

Thanks lindsay

I had to ring the gp this morning and there was a message saying they have a high number of staff sicknesses at the moment. And a pub near mum's has closed because too many staff had covid!
It's really getting around!

nonperson 31-12-2021 02:26 PM

There was stuff about that on the news this morning, how so many people are off work including NHS staff who are critically important at the moment.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 02:35 PM

It is worrying

nonperson 31-12-2021 03:28 PM

All the restrictions, or lack of, seem to be about controlling the number of people in hospital and getting jabs but that doesn't stop people catching it and the impact that has on everything.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 03:32 PM


The test and trace thing asked which place I thought I picked it up and I'm almost 100% sure I got it from work. Pretty much everyone has had it there!

nonperson 31-12-2021 03:51 PM

Most likely. Lots of different people mixing all over the place in a pub! Didn't you also say your brother had it when you went to visit?

On a better note, Mrs Doubtfire is on Film4 at 16:10!

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 03:53 PM

Yeah he did!
I didn't interact with him at all though and he even used a separate bathroom to everyone else!
But it is a sneaky virus

Yaaaaaaay!!! That is awesome news!

nonperson 31-12-2021 04:09 PM

Very sneaky.

I need to watch something like that today. I also saw that Jumanji was on and Hook is on now too. Must be a Robin Williams new years eve o.O

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 04:12 PM

Yes me too

I've got film4 on now!
Hellooooooo!!!! :tongue2:

nonperson 31-12-2021 04:17 PM

Yay =D

Although I'm going to have to abandon to pick up my prescription and watch on Film4+1 when I get back.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 04:19 PM

Oh no! Thank god for +1! Lol

I've just got my prescription.
Someone from work got her mum to get it for me :)

nonperson 31-12-2021 05:32 PM

That's nice of them!

I've got mine too. Surprised it was ready.

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 05:34 PM

I was surprised mine were ready too!

Glad you got them!
Can you relax now?

nonperson 31-12-2021 06:16 PM

Yep I'm literally laying on the sofa with a cat on me who is getting annoyed at being jiggled around every time I laugh at Mrs Doubtfire =P

Cacoethes 31-12-2021 06:24 PM


One thing that does annoy me in this film is that they keep saying Mrs Doubtfire is from England. Lol

nonperson 31-12-2021 06:50 PM

Yep! Sometimes it's English but mostly not.
