    Anyone have a recommendation where to get a movement upgrade to my SKX007 done? I can’t easily find a 7S26 for a direct swap and the local bloke has told me it’s not economical to repair the broken one.

    You could try it yourself. I havent switched movements on a Seiko but have done it on a Russian watch before. There are videos of people cha…[Read more]

  • so pointing and laughing at racist **** is championing meghan and the drag nazi, coolio.

    I suppose if meghan and ‘Dragnazicoolio Hewit jnr, were able to laugh at racist comments they would not be leaving the country.

  • seems the gammons don’t like their racist views being called out rather than any real interest in the desires/lives of meghan and hewitt jnr. Having to watch breakfast tv when the ex editor of the news of the world claiming that in 40 years of working in the british press he’d never come across any racism is quite bizarre. :/

    I can imagine the…[Read more]

  • Lucas couldn’t even keep track of the films. Obi Wan can’t recall owning a droid he was friends with for years. He goes in to hiding by wearing exactly the same clothes he’s always worn. Literally a Jedi uniform!

    Lucas couldn’t keep track of them for sure, however did Obi Wan Kenobi actually ‘own’ R2D2. I will let you in on a secret. I owned…[Read more]

  • So remember when I said if they were going to do it they should just give up theirs Royal titles properly? Well they just did….

    No they didn’t.

    Its 12 minutes in to this video.

    I came across it watching a video of 3 VFX experts doing a video of good and bad VFX.

    I knew who Space Marines were but no more than that. How does GW portray them?

    There are certain small details that are amazing. In the third one when one of the marines fires a plasma rife through the smoke, and the smoke creates a hole before closing up…[Read more]

    I know nothing about the Warhammer universe, but came across this animation called Astartes on youtube. It’s in 4 parts. Watch them all if you haven’t seen them they have been produced by a single fan as a labor of love. The quality of the graphics, detail and animation is breath taking. It is very violent.

    FFS Count Zero. Stop with the Heimdallr would you? 😀

    I’m deciding on getting the 62 MAS or Sub Homage, can’t decide which, I do have 3 Seiko’s now…

    62Mas everytime. I recently got a San Martin one from Aliexpress. It’s a seriously good watch for not a lot of money. Its solid and the build quality is excellent, as is the lume. It looks from th…[Read more]

  • No self respecting Bavarian drinks Paulaner…

    Interesting to hear. Crates from Germany are amazing though. I am surprised you thing Ghostship is better or comparable to what is available there.

  • alpin

    Have discovered a new beer on this fair isle…. Ghost Ship. Have sunk quite a few in the last few days. Think I might buy a few of those mini 5l kegs and take them back to Germany next week.

    Take as much Adnams as you like. Can you ship back shperior beer like Paulaner or Franziskaner Weissbeir in the opposite direction please? I can get t…[Read more]

    Just seen Kermode review Uncut Gems with Adam Sandler. He was waxing lyrical about it and, Sandlers performance deserves Oscar nomination. Limited release now, but will be available on Netflix at the end of the month. I wouldn’t normally give Adam Sandler much heed, but I will look out for it based on this review and the trailer.

  • really don’t think they give a flying **** what you think mate.

    They do though. That’s why the situation has arisen.

  • I dont know why when I try to post a link at the minute it takes me to an RSPB advert, but if you havent seen it go onto youtube and search ‘Stewart Lee Princess Diana’ Comedy Gold.

    I nodded an old Vostok Amphibia by putting a Pepsi bezel on it. You can get parts from Meranom. Their site is fantastic.

  • but fully buy in to the stroke of luck in A New Hope that Leia sends a message to Obi Wan and the Droids happen to land on the planet where he is in hiding. And of all the people that buy them from the Jawas it’s a family with a link to Obi Wan.

    Perhaps Leia had an idea of roughly where Obi Wan could be found and programmes R2 accordingly. She h…[Read more]

  • That would be the magic guy with lightning bolts coming out of his hands, right?

    I can suspend disbelief for a movie, especially six fi or fantasy films. Inception is one of my favourite films of the last 20 years, but convincing people to change their mind by infiltrating dreams within their dreams within dreams is hardly believable.

    I can…[Read more]

  • Me too, it’s Star Wars not Hamlet.

    I will get a bit ranty and will quite unashamedly say I havent seen the new one, but have seen every previous film and most of them at the cinema apart from The Last Jedi.

    I know it’s not Hamlet but expecting people to believe a character that clearly died in an earlier episode but is not really dead with no s…[Read more]

  • Good luck to them. Harry is about the only one I have any time for. Get out of that dysfunctional family asap if it were me.

    I am not a big fan of the royals, and I can see why they would want to split time between here and the US if it gives them greater access to Megan’s family, however for Harry to not tell his own family privately before…[Read more]
