    the old kung fu film footage in episode 9 is excesllent.

    I loved that bit. the whole thing is amazing. my only criticism is there's not enough episodes.

    Wu-Tang, An American Saga has been great the first two episodes I watched, there’s a strong tension throughout, hope they can sustain it through the series.

    I'm up to episode 9. it slows a little in the middle but it's my fav. thing on tv for ages.

    i was expecting wonder years fred savage kid to be shazaam and it always felt really weird in every scene when he wasn't for some reason.

    I'm interested because a friend of mine owns two McDonald's franchises and his planning applications actually received community support, on the basis of job creation for young people and somewhere safe for people to hang out. They are not in London though.

    You’ll be telling us the milkshake machine works in his branches next...

    If she wants to borrow a Staffy for a couple of months...

    Staffy is my first choice of breed but if we were to need to take it later on my gf is slightly nervous around "aggressive looking" dogs and it would be a harder sell as she has the usual misconceptions about the breed. I'm sure by then she'd have come around after spending time around it though.

    interesting, I'll have a look at greyhounds as well.

    for a lot of intents and purposes it'll really be my dog that lives at my mums and for the foreseeable i'll be spending most of my time here helping her out as it's less disruptive to me to do so rather than travel back and forth repeatedly but my gf and I are looking at a poss. move down to brighton in the coming year to help facilitate me being able to pop in daily rather than stay full time so the dog being alone with my mum will be the exception rather than the rule and walkers are an option in a pinch if need be and ultimately we'll be able to take it when we have a bigger place if there's any problems.

    My mum's been making noises about getting a dog to keep her company when I'm not about. She's been unwell for most of this year and had really poor mobility but I think she's able to handle a couple of very short walks a day to take a dog out when I'm not there and actually it's good incentive to keep her moving as I think too much inactivity doesn't help her health improve anyways.

    based on all kinds of variables I think something like a mid-size cockapoo might be the ticket based on what I've read about demeanour/temperament, grooming, general needs etc. my 2 young cousins spend a lot of time at my mums and my general experience with really small dogs is they're too snappy/mental.

    obviously before I go ahead with anything I'll be doing my full due diligence on what I need but while I'm building up a mental checklist any/all advice on getting a puppy after not having a dog since I was 8 is most welcome. from best place to start to things you might not think you'll need but definitely will.

    was back home in london this weekend and went to turn on my xbone and it's stone cold dead. it's only been used about 3 times this year as I'm never there but can't imagine why that would cause it to kick the bucket. in the past I've had to reset the power supply by unplugging everything and leaving it for a minute but this time it didn't do anything.

    not sure if I should just stick with the ps4 pro until the next lot of consoles come out or get an xbone s so I can still play my existing games if i get the fancy.

    annoyingly it was the easiest way for me to watch nba league pass on my telly as it's one of the few platforms which has the app available. going to have to get a roku just for that now as the new season starts this month. anyways yankee bouncyball thread >>>>>>
