The Red Room
This week, we discussed the brazen Scottish disregard towards traffic laws, the misery of chilblains, and the thrill of sending a good complaint email. We also debated on the merits of Twitter, on adults who use SMS language on the internet, and the phenomenon of people honking their horns while driving away from somewhere.
We discussed Jenny's embracement of technology (and her abandonment of Luddism), Thom's getting to grips with Siri (and its refusal to understand a Scottish accent), and the dangers of lighting a gas-powered grill (such as burning off all of the hair on your arms). We also voiced our dislike of onstage banter at gigs, of the snobbery of sommeliers, and of people with bad gig etiquette.
We also reviewed films by the Wachowski brothers (The Matrix Trilogy), Roman Polanski (Cul-de-sac), Russ Meyer (Supervixens), Jacques Tati (Monsuier Hulot's Holiday), and David Lean (Doctor Zhivago), as well as My Bloody Valentine's recent show at the Barrowlands.18:00 - 20:00
