    Not quite the same train of thought, but my surviving grandmother (97 next month) became a Granny for the first time in 1967 (aged 47) and for a final time in 1988 (aged 68). That last one being Pandy btw.
    Couldn't tell you the range for her great grandchildren but her first one born within wedlock was in 2007. Prior to that, I remember her remarking to me that she was fond of them all but perturbed by the fact that "they are all bastards".
    Still makes me chuckle!

    Misspelling aside, I feel I'm missing some context here.

    I was going to wish you Happy Birthday as I-Wizzle, then I decided that this would be ill-advised.
    So pip pip, have a spiffing birthday, young sir! Oo-de-lally!!

    So, who's turn is it next to watch Faust? I don't remember Preston ever commenting on it....

    Yeah, really enjoyed it (having not seen most of last season). Bill's great and I'm looking forward to this TARDIS crew.
    And that 'Coming Soon' reel.......
  7. slothian added a post in a topic No rush of course, but is there a timetable for the Spectre episode?   

    I don't know what TL:DL means, but you're only half right. Yes, the raw recording is utterly fucked up, but the finished episode - whenever it surfaces - will be akin to traditional FYEO. But I have had issues with the following:
    a) current podcasts - I do two monthly podcasts, one of which I have full editing duties for. They take precedence;
    b) aforementioned raw recording issues;
    c) previous PC crashed at the end of February so I have had to buy a new PC and sort through new editing software;
    d) part of the original recording has been forever lost - luckily it's the intro leading up to the song. This will require re-recording;
    e) It's a lot of effort to devote to, well, Spectre.....
    In short, it's a massive undertaking, of which I have very limited time to dedicate to (I am currently studying for professional examinations outside of my full-time job) and isn't my main priority, hence the delay. I'm sorry if that disappoints anyone, but the Spectre episode is ultimately a one-off special for a defunct podcast which ran out its original lifespan. If you (in the general sense, rather than a specific poster in this thread) feel annoyed that it hasn't been released as of yet, then please reassess what you consider to be important in life. It WILL be completed, but at my own pace - and look at my forum handle if you need a clue....

    I feel like there's an obvious joke to be made about Donovan pushing so hard for Denzel Washington movi........OHHHHHH!!! Right......

    Why can't we upvote on these forums?!?
    Haven't watched it - don't want key moments revealed/spoiled.
  12. slothian added a post in a topic Help influence Episode 41!   

    That hardly narrows the potential list down....
  13. slothian added a post in a topic Help influence Episode 41!   

    Still very early on in the deliberation process, but the likelihood is we'll do one of his pre-Oscar roles from the 80s, one of his biggest performances from the 90s and a 21st century film. "Biggest" doesn't necessarily mean one of his Oscar wins, but the Gump backlash (relatively speaking) interests me, having not seen it before.
    Keep the suggestions coming!
    EDIT: I do not consider Steve Rogers to be my enemy, for the avoidance of doubt.

    Ah yes, that guy!
    .....*googles Milo Venti-thingamy*....
    Well, that's an impressive filmography, none of which I have ever seen! Although my filmic black-spots are so large, I could just as easily be talking about Diane Keaton...
