Re: Back again

While I'm lurking, how in the world do you make an avatar? No matter how small or bad quality my image it will not shrink to 15KB or below??

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

What happened to this thread? Where are numbers 4 - 1? I was eight when Behaviour was released and actually received the album as a Christmas present in 1999.

Re: Poll ends soon on whether you want PSB to eventually have a "retirement tour"

Needs a final flourish...of Being Boring...in the 2020s. If it's a goodbye/posthumously tour. I fall apart at PSB at their most beautiful album conclusions. And these are on top for now.

Re: I flit

You're quite right Steve, I genuinely haven't heard much until lately when I Apple music-ified all their latest. Still ploughing through at the moment as I have to be quiet in the student house at night. Unbelievably. ;) When I've finished I'll write an annotated analysis like Lush used to. ;) You'l...

Re: I flit

I now quite like them again. This Social Media stuff is fun to bounce around to and some of their old stuff was okay. :twisted: Plus, most of the clique just reunited on my FB...my arpie quoted 'I came across a cache of old photos' and I was crying. I made some amazing friends on these pages. I kind...

Hey Forum!

Well I haven't been part of this community since 2001. You seriously need more threads about sinking ships and eating hamsters, but otherwise all seems good! :)
