I always assumed I liked that song based on the samples in the show.

Turns out the rest of the song is utter shit.

Why is politics so much less fun these days?

It feels like the time of spectacular gaffes, John Prescott walloping someone for throwing an egg at him, Gordon Brown's live reaction to finding out he'd been recorded calling someone a bigot, Ed Miliband and his EdStone, are over. It seems as though we're now instead in the time of conspiracy theorists and the tinfoil hatters have taken over the mainstream or that perhaps social media storms are sucking the fun out of everything.

A lower calibre of politician. Even in 1997, The Times was calling Theresa May out on being a Robo-Politician.
Blair, Brown and Prescott were equally a step down from men like Callaghan, Healey and Benn who'd fought in the war, and even they were the B-team to Attlee and Churchill.

The other problems are economics and time. You've already got weaker raw material (political personalities), now you've got to satirise them on a shoestring budget, and you need to have the whole thing written, filmed, edited and on telly by next week because we want it to be topical and even on this timescale, by next week your satire is going to seem dated. Under these circumstances, is it surprising you get so many out-of-touch, received wisdom, this-isn't-very-funny takes on Trump, May and Corbyn from people in the same social circle?

>>84499
I think even apart from alternative news, it's partially the collapse of mass media. Even if you stick to a single news site, the non-linear way you can explore it means we could both come out of a visit to the BBC News site with a completely different impression of the world. Compare with television where you'd got 4 broadly similar channels and you had to pick one of them even if it meant sitting through a documentary about flower arranging.

On Trump, I like the line a friend gave me from the Simpsons: The pie gag only works when the sap's got dignity!
The Clinton campaign shooting itself in the foot was quite funny, if you're a bit of a political wonk type of a certain persuasion, but Trump clowning around wasn't funny because he was just an undignified clown. He couldn't lower himself, and Bush had already lowered the office.

Why is his song 'Human' so popular? It sounds like utter dogshit to me. Maybe I'm just getting old.

Ironically his song includes lyrics of being "only human after all", whereas his picture instead shows a fat piece of shit.

Welcome to britfa.gs m8

I'd be inclined to agree with you but this gets more playtime than it deserves and it's even won an award. The lyrics are what especially piss me off, just droning on and on repeating the same phrase. I listen to the radio daily and whilst there's a lot of contemporary music I don't like, I wouldn't say it's the same level as this song.

Repetition and simplicity are two major features of successful modern pop music. I'm not saying that means you have to suddenly like the song, but you shouldn't be so surprised it's a popular song.

The production on it is really good, it's about as gritty, sampled, and hip-hop as you can get away with making a chart hit sound, and as the lad was originally a rapper and cut his teeth in the High Focus stable, that shouldn't come as much of a shock. His unique (in mainstream music at least) voice probably caught some people's attention too.

The song gets on my tits now because, as you say, it's ridiculously overplayed. But I think I thought it was pretty catchy the first two or three times I heard it. Now after the 800th time, it can fuck right off.

Sage for not supporting your hatred entirely.

Isn't this thread about a year late?

But yeah he's bollocks, it's just one of those pop songs that comes out occasionally that's just fresh enough to properly blow every chart-listening cunt's head off. You know how normal wankers think a trip to Nandos is a bit of an adventurous treat? That's exactly what a fat tattooed bloke is to the pop market.

You can tell it's an intentional marketing construct by the fact his album had adverts on the telly. Telly adverts for an album. Just let your mind roll over that for a moment.

Can anyone recommend a good dashcam?

I want something that I don't have to remove after I stop driving to deter thieves. So something inconspicuous would be ideal. I've seen ones that clip onto the frontside of the rearview mirror but they also seem to augment the rearview itself, putting a control menu there which I don't like.

I and a dozen others have recently begun tenancies in an old, previously empty building. We (understandably) have no active landline connection. I believe the landline is still in place, but BT require an engineer visit before we can start paying for the leased line. I'd like to know if any of the work the phone engineer might do is DIY-able.

As far as I know (and I don't know much to be honest), for a situation like yours they would send an engineer out and charge the same regardless of the state of the wiring at your premises.
Plus everything up to the socket in your house remains the property of Openreach, if they suspect anything has been tampered with, I think they are able to impose extra charges.

Tech guy here.

You should not fit one yourself. This is definitely engineer work.

As it is, don't try and do it with BT, they will charge you for this. You will not be their customer, strictly speaking, until you have a live service. So break out now.

Certain companies will cover the costs of the Openreach engineer to fit this for you. I know, for example, that the Post Office Homephone and Broadband is currently waiving engineer fees. If you sign up as a customer with them, they will fit the master-socket at no cost to yourself.

This could be done within three working days.

Quick correction on another poster. The internal socket also belongs to Openreach, just not the front cover of the socket, which belongs to the customer. So, you cannot fit it yourself, as it is not your property.

I want to check my understanding of science is correct.

The universe is continually growing and expanding. This is evidenced by the fact that human beings in the past were much shorter than they are today. Therefore, it stands to reason that this continued expansion will mean it won't be uncommon in the centuries to come for people to be around the 7ft mark. Eventually we will all become giants, relative to today.

Lads, I've been listening to a fair bit of Father John Misty and it's got me thinking. Is it possible to use algorithms to create music?

It's probably reflective of the slightly bland middle of the road music I seem to have settled into but literally every single song of his sounds like I've heard it before; even on the first listen to a track it's got that warm familiarity and pangs of nostalgia. Now I'm not saying the man has been created using artificial intelligence and manufactured music or imitating other artists is nothing new, but if someone turned around and said that all of his output had been cultivated in a lab with the aim of creating music with widespread appeal then I wouldn't blink an eye. I know the likes of Spotify use algorithms to recommend music they think people will like, but I'm not aware of algorithms being used to create music they think people will like.

Whilst I think younger generations are more guarded about what they say for fear of being shouted down, I don't think that's it.

There seems to be far more pressure on kids about how they look. You see parents moulding young kids into being mini models and the like; boys about the age of 10 with faded hair, skinny jeans and tops from somewhere like Hollister or Abercrombie & Fitch. When I was that age I thought I looked the shit in my grey Adidas top with grey Adidas trackies with red trim on the stripes and a zip so I could turn them into flares. Then there's also growing up in the world of social media and the way everyone presents an artificially perfect version of themselves.

The pressure on kids today to conform is enormous. We're not letting kids be kids and grow up making their own mistakes. You don't see teenage girls caked in foundation and with wonky bright blue eye shadow anymore because they've all watched tutorials on YouTube on how to apply make-up like a professional.

Those are the exact same things though, aren't they? Kids wearing what's fashionable.

It's easy for us old cunts to believe that we were the last generation to do it right, but fifteen years ago I was wearing clothes as dictated by my peers, media, and the bands I listened to. I was very much part of a music scene and there were plenty of them about, and more than enough teenage subcultures. I can't imagine any of that has disappeared in such a short amount of time.

The idea that teenagers don't for groups, cliques, or subcultures now is laughable, honestly. They may not be ones you recognise (though they still exist, I see goths all the time) but they're there.

/beat/8707 Cover songs
The Pet Shop Boys' Always On My Mind has been voted the top cover version of all time in a BBC Music vote.

The song, written by John Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, was first made famous by Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley in 1972.

Johnny Cash's cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt came in second place, followed by The Stranglers' version of Dionne Warwick's Walk On By. Jimi Hendrix's take on Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower came fourth. Jeff Buckley's cover of Leonard Cohen's classic Hallelujah completed the top five.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-29791820

Not keen on that version of Walk On By but I like the rest. I reckon I'd have to have a good think about my favourite covers and I'm sure I'd still forget some.

How does .gs feel about children? It's a topic I don't think I've ever seen discussed on here before.

Not that it's remotely on the cards for me right now, but I really don't want children of my own, at least not right now, which is odd, because about a year or two a go I felt basically the opposite. I think my initial "I would like kids" feeling came about after worrying that if I left it too late I'd up with old man spaff that would produce a terrible, half porpoise child, but that's not really a problem if you don't have them to begin with.

They seem to be doing stuff like that a lot younger nowadays. Same with proms and leavers hoodies. It's weird seeing primary school kids doing this stuff that people wouldn't be doing until they were 16. Maybe I'm just jealous I missed out on all that stuff.

Her brother's at a different school and the only time he had a residential trip was in Year 6, which was about £265 for three nights. Then again, he's off to France with Scouts next year and that's £300 for a full week.

I've got the feeling her school do a longer residential trip in Year 6. Fuck sake.

What are some 4x4s that are reliable, easy to work on, and can be had for about 2k or less?

So far I've hit upon the old Cherokee. It apparently has a great reputation for reliability in the states (the engine and drivetrain at least) but it never gained the same cult following over here, so it can be had for a modest price. I've looked into Shoguns/Pajeros and Isuzu Troopers but haven't heard good things about them.

LPG is a decent shout, it's undeniably fun to knock around in a big old american Jeep. I wouldn't ever do it because I don't like having a big tank in the back. Just make sure you're realistically close to a station that offers LPG, mind.

Fair play on the Landy front, I should say that I've never found a 200tdi or 300tdi to be any worse than any other similarly aged motor. The later ones are a bit of a nightmare with air suspension and lots of traction control stuff that breaks at the first sign of dust. but the earlier, you just need to look after them. I understand why so many are put off them, but I think I've spent less on my 300tdi than I have on my 2005 BMW.

Anyway - you're right about Land Cruisers, they're ludicrously priced. However, you definitely should be able to get a Hilux Surf for the price you're looking for. I'm just scouring AutoTrader now and I see decent ones for under a grand and a half. They're tanks.

I've also heard good things about the Mitsubushi L200, but for 2k you'll probably only find a handful of examples. Ford Rangers are worth considering too, but there's not a huge amount of them in this country.

My dad had a Grand Cherokee for years. It was cracking and would probably still be considered 'luxurious' even today. I think he had a transmission problem on it eventually, but you're rolling the dice no matter what with old 4x4s.

I'm an ex-Land Rover owner. They're fantastic cars, but generally built by seventeen-year-olds in Solihull and are fucking unreliable. My next 4x4 will definitely be the Hilux Surf, it is noticeable how all the farming types have moved over to the Toyota - they're just better value.

They can't tow 3.5t, though, can they?
I'm looking for a tow car that can legally pull my 3.5t trailer and be a general beater. Looks like a landy, a grand cherokee or a recent X5. Since I only want it for towing a few times a month, and don't need to go far, the cherokee's in with a chance, but a disco will probably win. X5 is not really a goer, especially as they apparently really suck off-road. Plenty of landy menders around here if I can't face it.

A friend of mine has an ancient, abused Jimny held together by duct tape and grit that was, at one point, a 4x4. It still drives, and I've not heard about any engine problems with it in spite of the absolute state it's in.

Not what you're looking for if you want a 4x4 for space though.

There's another side to that argument which is, despite his kinship with the african american artists, all he really managed to do was take their music, mannerisms, and performing style and mimic them all in front of white audiences for profit.

Whether or not he could have hoped at all to get an actual black performer to appeal to his white audience at the time is really up for debate, but as far as we know he had no intention of trying.

He helped to fund Appearances by Garland Anderson, the first Broadway show written by a black playwright. He was an ardent supporter of black performers in his films - consider this scene from The Singing Kid, co-starring Cab Calloway:



It's undoubtedly the case that blackface performers helped to perpetuate negative stereotypes of black Americans, but I think it's fairly clear that Jolson himself was no racist. It should be borne in mind that the BBC continued to produce The Black and White Minstrel Show until 1978, while Jolson had largely abandoned blackface by the early 1940s.

I might draw a parallel with the 1957 Wolfenden Report that ultimately led to the decriminalisation of homosexuality in Britain. To modern eyes, the report is staggeringly homophobic in places, describing homosexuality as "morally repugnant" and referring to gay men as "unfortunate creatures". In the context of the time, it was daringly liberal for suggesting that private acts between consenting adults were not the concern of the law.

>A man faces jail after being convicted of luring other men into having sex with him by posing as a woman named Ana.

>Duarte Xavier used online dating sites to contact four heterosexual men and deployed various ruses, including telling them he was married and that he wanted to engage in role play, to convince them to wear blindfolds, before engaging in sexual acts. Police said Xavier’s victims, all of whom initially believed he was female, were left “traumatised” by his crimes, which they described as being “unique in their depravity”.

>Xavier, who is from south-west London, was convicted at Kingston crown court on Friday of six counts of causing a male aged 13 or over to engage in penetrative sexual activity.

>The court heard he was a liar and fantasist whose crimes spanned several years. Posing as Ana, he would send provocative pictures to men and draw them into meeting for sex. His trial was told that he would set a series of conditions, including that the victim must wear a blindfold, and that they were not allowed to touch him. None of the victims had any reason to believe he was not who he said he was, with one telling police Xavier’s voice sounded like that of a foreign woman.

Is this tactic common? I saw the same thing happen in that Catfish TV show - fat black woman pretending to be pretty white girl got the guy she was talking to online to show up at her apartment blindfolded to kiss him, so he didn't know she was fat and/or black. I wouldn't put a blindfold on for anything but maybe blindfolded sexual encounters are the norm in this day and age.

Yeah we fully invented ISIS, and I'm more or less certain that our governments intended them to exist as a destabilising force in the region.

We were the ones selling weapons to Assad's opponents five or six years ago, and then what do you know, ISIS popped up out of nowhere like the rebels on a Total War campaign map. Suddenly the media narrative changed and we never heard a thing about the fact we'd been selling weapons ever again.

We, by which I really mean the Yanks, have always been "the bad guys" in the middle east.

It's the curse of the oil and other fossil resources. What goes on in the Middle East today is still the consequence of Britain, the U.S. and other countries liberally dividing the Middle East up among themselves into different client states and effectively oil supplier countries that fuelled much of Western industrial and technological development from the early 20th century onwards. Does anybody think that otherwise, the U.S. and Britain would have given a toss about some nomadic desert peoples that still lived in archaic tribal communities like they had been doing for milleniae, and to whom even the concept of a nation state was entirely foreign?

It was the oil beneath their feet that meant the West had a vested interest in the region and decided to install an assortment of client state governments that would ensure a secure and steady supply of crude oil. Whatever else these often despotic regimes were doing, nobody really cared about as long as the oil kept coming. It was only when some of those corrupt leaders turned rogue and bit the hand that had been feeding them, or were overthrown by revolutionary governments that the West declared it a humanitarian duty to step in, while at the same time accepting zero responsibility for the events that had led up to whatever mess was unfolding.
