I do have a broader range of interests than that, DL.

I guess I’m a bit old fashioned in that I prefer to speak on public forums on areas of specialism. Obviously I don’t get to see as much of Leeds over here as other ballers, but we’ve got some insightful pundits on here and I do take a keen interest in what they have to say - even you.

Unlike some, I’m not insecure or jealous when someone has more knowledge than me about something. I see that as an opportunity to learn. And after all, I’m getting more out of the bargain. The world’s a more enlightened place when people listen objectively and learn from one another rather than closing their ears through prejudice and blind partisanship.

What shall you be drinking with the turkey this year?
I'm going Southern Rhone, Rioja Reserva and [at the request of my mother-in-law, who loves Italian wine] now searching for an appropriate splash therefrom. [Starting with a Cremant du Jura and winding up with Tokaji.]
The Aussies will have to wait for Boxing Day.
Switch threads, if you like.


We always have champagne with the Xmas turkey. A lot of Aussies go for shell fish or cold meats but we like Turkey (probably a legacy of those cold Xmases I spent in the UK.

When it comes to European reds I think Rioja still stands up - but go for a gran reserva rather than reserva - it is Xmas. Tokaji Azu? Yeah - hate sweet whites but I do have a nostalgia for that one - you may recall I offered it to Jonathan Harker in Transylvania when he visited me to act as solicitor fo those properties I bought in London!


Hey DL - that bit above in blue is suddenly topical. I see there’s a new three part film on my life - apparently already aired on BBC started New Year’s Day - and streaming in 4K over here on Netflix tomorrow (no spoilers please).

I love the way you mortals can’t resist twisting my life story with these silly variations in all your remakes - the most accurate version (albeit low budget and shaky sets) is that 1970s version with Louis Jordan and Frank Finlay.

Anyhow - no spoilers please - I await with interest the new effort - and will be impressed if they do at least get my serving of Tokay to Jonathan Harker right for once!

It's really good, Vamps. Watched part 2 last night; last bit tonight. Glad to hear you're not burnt at the edges.

Fuck me DL just watched it. Not impressed!

It had some potential - SIster Agatha interviewing Jonathan Harker was a different but fair way to get at how I toyed with JH in the Castle, and the Dmitry scenes were interesting in that Stoker never told you exactly what I did on that ship other than it was shipwrecked in Whitby with everyone dead and the captain lashed to the wheel - so fair play for anyone to take a bit of creative license there - but I think making Sister Agatha into Van Helsing (political correctness?) and then that absurd time warp to 2020 just ruined it.

Why can’t you mortals just tell my life story as it happened? It’s not difficult - Stoker wrote it all down for you (at least up to 19th century). OK he corrupted a few details - I arrived in Whitby in October 1885 on the Russian schooner “Dmitry” (shipwrecked on Tate Hill Sands) - not “Demeter of Varna” But that’s hardly material. Why can’t you just make a decent film that gets it all right?

See my update on the TV thread. Loved the first part. Second bit was OK. Third rubbish.

London types: Koko is on fire, and not in that old skool good way.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Owned by a cunt of an ex boss of mine.

Can’t say I’m not smiling wryly, at least while I believe no ones hurt.

Think it might have been the Camden Palace last time I was there.

Saw the Banshees there as one of my first gigs, supported by Vic Goddard and Subway Sect and the Thompson Twins when there were about seven of the fuckers, late 79 I guess, was called the Music Machine iirc

Wasn’t it also called something else between Camden Palace and Koko?

Can't say that I've ever thought it was a particularly good venue but it's always sad to see anything like this happen. Hope they are able to restore it as it was a nice-looking place.

Only been once to see Testament in 2018
We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

Can I remind you all, the owner’s a cunt.

Knowing him, it’s locked on an insurance scam.

I left parts of my brain in there. Remember vaguely one really raucous jungle party that ended with so many people on stage the decks kept jumping, but nobody seemed to really care or want to risk trying to clear all the rudeboys from the stage.

And those galleries were always interesting :lol:
