    Really random tangent, but had the telly on last night and Eden came on.

    Anyway, Channel 4 scrapped it in the process of releasing episodes when it was happening as shit got really bizarre on there and it didn't go as expected at all. As of this week they've been releasing a few 'review' episodes of what actually happened. It devolved from 50/50 women and men aiming to live in harmony and trying to build a sustainable co-op, to the women all leaving after it got really rape-y, arson-y and assault-y.

    Not sure why I'm writing this, but seeing it's nearly all men on here, I just envision all of us in a massive drunken brawl after discussing wedding outfits or some shit.

    I'd heard of a show, earlier in they year, where they stopped broadcasting and didn't tell the contestants.. turns out this is the same one.

    Good book.

    Plenty of music to be investigated here too - maybe it's time for another mixtape swap thread?

    Top thread! *thumbs*

    Sleep - Dopesmoker
    Autechre - Montreal
    Prince - Take Me With U
    Bowie - Heroes (obvs)
    Minutemen - Little Man With a Gun In His Hand
    Kraftwerk - Heimcomputer
    Porno For Pyros - Good God's Urge
    Prong - It's Been Decided


    Book:

    Luxury:
    A cat that doesn't need feeding
    Or - if there's a curb there - a skateboard


    (side note: why is trying to decide on 8 tunes you like so incredibly hard, even when it's just for shits on a skateboard forum?)

    When have I ever done that? Talking about the music you like is like talking about your favourite colour. Who gives a fuck? It's my day job; I don't come on here to talk about that.

    You guys mistake having a strong opinion as thinking it is fact, I make an effort to try and see where others are coming from and don't immediately dismiss anything

    Got me all wrong bro

    Haha! He's annoyed that somebody isn't getting annoyed by how annoyed he is about something utterly pointless. Guy's going to have an aneurysm before he turns 20.
