Re: Member Spotlight - Curmudgeon

Invisiframe is just a transparent vinyl film added to your frame to help prevent scratches and chips. Just like sticking a screen protector on your phone.. just more expensive & even more annoying to apply!

 

I’m colour blind so individual colours don’t mean that much to me!

 

I really lack concentration and find the art of reading boring. I can’t say I’ve really read anything since school apart from Danny The Champion of the World. Roald Dahl was a genius!

 

Livery.. ooo fab question.. I’m not sure.. but what I would like is some of those little name / country tags you see the professionals have on their bikes and helmets. (A bit pretentious for a casual rider like me!)

Re: Member Spotlight - Curmudgeon

Welcome @Anonymous and I feel honoured, and slightly embarrassed, that I'm what you like best about the community. Thank you.

I see you also like Wentworth Prison and Prisoner Cell Block H (dogy sets and all). I'm a fan of both shows. I think the actress they have playing the freak in Wentworth Prison is better than the original in PCBH. She's far more scary and crazy.

We have similar tastes in music, though I do admit loving some of the new music around today, like RagnBone Man. His album Human is my favourite at the moment, and I play it a lot. Like you I love music and couldn't live without it. My tastes range from classical to rap and everything in-between. And, yes, I do like country music. I grew up watching the Grand Old Opry every week with my mum. It's still the biggest live TV show for country music.

My taste in films is a bit different to yours but you have chosen some classics.

It was very interesting to get to know you better. And I don't think you're a curmudgeon at all 😊

@Glory1 Sorry for the embarrassment..  but we have our own little corner of the forum.. how could I not mention you! 

 

I think villains in the old days weren’t allowed to be ‘scary’  just imply that they were. I think without the old Joan as a template this new Freak wouldn’t be as good as she is!

 

thank you for sharing your tastes too!

 

Hearing Opry makes me smile.. my grandad was born on the same day it started (28/11/1925) he used to say ‘I’m just as old as the Grand Ole Opry but you never call me Grand Ole Grandad! Silly old fool he was!

@Anonymous you say you're a casual rider ... where are your favourite places to go biking?

Before my son & his then fiance's mountain bikes were stolen ... they loved going to the Peak District, on a weekend, with their bikes & a picnic, they live in Leeds

Thank you for posting the Chris Froome & Union Jack sticker pic ... Smiley Happy

Yes we do have our own little corner of the community and I do thank you and appreciate the mention, embarrassment aside laughing

 

Interesting fact that your grandad was born the day Opry started. Amazing the Opry is still going strong 90+ years later. Can't think of any music show that's lasted so long; certainly not a live one. 

 

And I totally agree the original Joan was a template for the newer version. Australian TV in general has improved tremendously over the years. Some good TV has come out like The Heart Doctor, A Place to Call Home, The Doctor Blake Mysteries, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries just to name a few. Nothing like Wentworth which is unique, gripping and must-see TV for me. Can't wait for the new season to see what happens next.

 

And have you watched the latest Good Fight episode yet and what did you think? As an American who hates Trump I found it amusing, very plausible with what's being reported in the news and particularly liked the the ending LOL
