(sorry, Rick, that 'open house' idea of mine will have to wait a bit).

Hmmm....it's tempting though....get up at 5.30am Friday morning, drink with you guys for a couple of hours and then head in to work.....

I do hope our chat will branch out to other things. Halloween and 70s TV shows are 2 things I have no interest in, as I think I made clear last timewink

I'd be happy to sit back and listen (and drink) while everyone else talks about things in which I would normally have little or no interest or knowledge. As long as the conversation is interesting is all that matters to me. What's that Mitchum line from Out of the Past? "I never learned anything from hearing myself talk."

It's actually Saturday this time around, but still -- gruelling hours!

The conversation goes where it goes. No set themes. But preferably an ebb and flow, and not only about films or film music, so that everyone feels involved. It's important that this does not become just like Stephen's seminars.

Agreed, though I would like to know what everyone is drinking once they log on; "Cheers!", and all that.

"Now Drinking" is obligatory at every turn, of course. smile

I have a couple of different IPAs cooling in the fridge. First up will be Zombrew IPA from Epidemic Ales, which I have posted the image of the label on this thread at least a couple of times.

The next - and ONLY - "Cheers" video meeting in October will be this upcoming Saturday, October 17th, at 21:00 local Oslo time!

Set your calendars!

The link is https://meet.jit.si/MainTitlesandFSMGet-together

We'll move over to Zoom if and when the first person with issues logs on.

(sorry, Rick, that 'open house' idea of mine will have to wait a bit).

That's tonight! I haven't even glanced at this board since February - I've been in a spaceship working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, trying to figure out how to solve the problems of the planet. I am mentally and physically exhausted. I think the solution is just to nuke the whole fecking globe. We deserve it. We're stupid wankers (actually, I'm not). I can recall nothing of why I ever even posted here. What is this film music nonsense? Is it the classical music used in films, like Jonathan Strausshoven in 2001? That's my favourite film music of all time. Real music, not like those pop groups who just sing - and badly. The Beatles and The Rolling Stones are my least favourite pop groups. They encouraged youngsters to take drugs and experiment with sex, sometimes using farmyard animals and rubber contraptions.

I might click on tonight, but I've lost track of time. I shan't be drinking "alcohol". That's what caused the Romans to lose their empire. Drinking wine from lead jugs. Lead poisoning. It ate their brains away. And they also did that pop group nonsense 2,000 years ago. Drinking, bad haircuts, sex with everybody and everything. I'm not surprised they died but I'm glad they did. Filthy they were.

The spaceship chronometer says that I may be in Earth's orbit around 10, so a bit late. The signal will be weak too, but I may attempt to tune in to see what you all look like. I imagine you all look like wankers. If I do manage to get a signal I shall be sipping a cup of tea. Tea is what put the Great in Great Britain. I could drink all the tea in China. Does anyone know how the Chinese ended up with the reputation for having lots of tea? Billions and billions of tiny little Chinese people all drinking English tea at the same time would cause a tidal wave if they all jumped off the same chair in unison.

The signal is fading. If I don't make it back, I send you all a message of love. What is love? I have never heard of that word and yet I have a dictionary chip in my android brain which houses 196 trillion trillion gazillion languages and dialects from your Earth alone. Why you cry? You say you love me yet you cry. What is cry? What is love? I have never heard those words before.

Ha, ha! Sorry to hear you've been drenched in mundane activities, Graham! Feel free to join in and tell us what's been goin' on, if you're up for it. Booze is voluntary, of course.

Sorry I missed this, it being the last n'all. How dit go? I'm not too disappointed though - I've been drinking tea since March, no alcohol at all, so I wouldn't have fit in. I have to stay sober due to my having found a new job as a freelance lecturer in English at the University of Santiago de Compostela. I get "danger money" too, because I'm also responsible for breaking up the Covid parties in the student residences. If I were eighty years younger I'd just join in and take the cash anyway.

But enough of me and my "spilling the beans" about my real life. How did the Cheers meet go? Sorry I couldn't be there but I was piloting a spaceship. Why do they make them so big? As the only member of the crew my arms can't reach two essential buttons at the same time, being forty-five metres apart (the buttons, not my arms).

Ha, ha. Thank you for a great meeting, as always. I was very drunk by the end there, so understandable that we lost three-four people in the last session. I hope it wasn’t too annoying.

Not at all. I only left for dinner-eating reasons. I appreciate everyone(?) listening to my warmhearted reminiscences of "Murderers I've Known." wink

Enjoyed the Leffe, which I'll definitely drink again.

Considering the wide ranges of personal interests, I thought we all got on well.

I'm sorry to have missed yesterday's chat. I've been feeling a bit under the weather recently, so I was hoping to feel better but not to be. Certainly wasn't in the mood for drinking, which is very unlike me.

You were missed, old sport. I don't think we even talked about the '70s, except in passing, and The Twilight Zone was discussed ever so briefly.

That was a fun time! I started out with cabernet but transitioned to a 1948 Don the Beachcomber's maitai, or as Bob Dylan would say, I started out on whiskey but I soon hit the harder stuff.

From vintage monophonic synths, to murderers whom we've known, it was a varied and lively conversation.

I am now more convinced than ever that wild animals living through the 1970s indeed knew it was the 1970s. Where else could I have had this theory validated?

When I was packing them up four years ago in advance of our move, I was wondering if I was a lover of music or a high-functioning mentally ill person.

I'm too embarrassed to tell you how many boxes I filled...

Yes, once again it was a very interesting session with lots of good discussions. I particularly enjoyed the "Murderers I've Known" segment.

I was hoping for a "incidents-where-I-cheated-death-but-it-really-wasn't-that-serious" discussion. Maybe next time.
