    Annoyingly, I was dying to see it and then missed the first episode, so I spent last night trying to work out who was who and what the hell was going on. Looks pretty good so far. Ralph 'Camberwell Carrott' Brown is an early stealer of scenery.

    I originally liked the premise of it, as I do with most shows, but it reeks of ITV drama and I couldn't watch it.

    So are you gonna post that in every thread on the General Forum that isn't about the Northern Irish music scene?

    There was literally no need for your sarcastic post.

    I'm raging I missed last night's episode, though I'm in the process of finding it on the interweb. I thought the first episode was good, and it seems to be quite a good idea for a show.

    Speed Demon, you're somewhat of a hypocrite,you've TAKEN PART in non-northern irish music threads in this very forum, including pro choice, and The Ulsterscot stance on a Britain without Scotland, and that's only in the last few pages of your post counts. Just because you might not like the show, doesn't make it "moronic television-talk".
  11. avatar Speed Demon
    Hmmm. Somebody's a bit defensive about watching "Cape Wrath", whatever that is.
  12. avatar i_amannie_b
    I'm sorry, but is this not the section of the forum entitled "general", and not "general music discussion"?

    Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, kids.
    Use some brains next time.

    Also, "moronic television talk"?
    I'm pretty sure that everyone at some point has watched a tv programme and then wanted to discuss it. Don't act like your above people just because you don't like the programmes they watch.

    But yeh. I think they've gotten into the whole plot too fast, what with mark starting to speak again in the first episode and danny getting arrested in the 2nd.
    Also, Zoe pisses me off. She's a typical stuck up little brat.

    General Forum: "Discussion, information, opinion and banter on the music scene and its related trappings"

    That's a [i:d2defb5ee9]guideline[/i:d2defb5ee9] though, not a commandment.

    Personally I reckon this thread is on the wrong side of the fuzzy line, unless there's some local connection I'm not aware of. I'm tolerant of such things so long as there is plenty of more relevant NI music discussion going on around it, but if there is not, then I'd prefer folks put their efforts into generating some instead of opting for celeb/tv gossip.
  14. avatar i_amannie_b
    Oh GOSH.
    Why does it matter what we talk about?
    It's pretty obvious this forum is always gonna stay mainly about NI and music, so i think everyone should just get over it.

    I think it's traditional to give everyone a little dig around their 200th post to keep them on track.
    I just passed 500 today, what do I get?

    I actually didn't know the general forum was supposed to be only music related.
    It always annoyed me when people would say "This is not music related".

    I figured most music related things were covered in the other forums.
    Oh well I'll stop posting stupid topics(somebody please sticky my crime related thread for about a month though please)

    This forum is a great place because you can talk about things with people from NI without it turning into something like this:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KR0HexmttFo
    I hope the music related rule is never that strictly enforced

    So I can create a topic about the romanian nudist drunk driver with no hands?

    So currently, in no particular order, some of the hottest topics on FF are:

    1. A house burglary
    2. Sopranos (3 seperate threads no less)
    3. TV license
    4. Jobs in Belfast
    5. Belfast Urban Sports
    6. Orange Marches

    Not to mention recent threads on abortion and Madeleine McCann wich ran on to infinity. In that respect, is TV talk really that moronic?
  30. avatar barrypeak
    shut up, you moron!
  31. avatar Niall Harden
    i think the sheer number of specific music-related fora means there's almost not that much that fits in 'general' anymore - discussion about glasgowbury is in 'gigs'; that fella's stratocaster related tax fraud is in 'equipment'; graham smith, marcus music and local music journalists have all been banished to 'industry', etc etc.
    so maybe here we might as well talk about healy going to fulham or celebrity big brother or russian anti-nazis and whatever else is happening in the real world.
  32. avatar barrypeak
    niall,
    is the plural of forum actually fora?
    should we start a new thread to discuss it?
  33. avatar Niall Harden
    a google search for "forum plural" says no. i think: http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/usingenglish-com-content/4184-fora-forums.html


    there does seem to be a rich tradition of smart-arse idiots like me feeling proud of themselves for saying "fora" though, and i'm proud to be part of that tradition.

    Hmmm. Fingers or Plectra?
  43. avatar Niall Harden
    much like forum and fora, apparently, with people slightly more keen on the latin one:

    [quote:0270155c37]
    "Plectrum" has both a Latin-based plural, plectra, and a native English plural, plectrums. Plectra is used in formal writing, particularly in discussing the harpsichord as an instrument of classical music. However, plectrums is more common in ordinary speech. In vernacular speech the abbreviation pleck or "plec" (plural: plecks) is sometimes used.
