    Interestingly also, according to this, both the main band members are 1.91 metres tall.

    Was pretty sure that the two guys from The Script were from The Liberties but I now go and look at Wikipedia and see that ... "Danny O'Donoghue was born in Dublin, Ireland, to Shay O'Donoghue, a member of the band The Dreams, and Ailish O'Donoghue. He is the youngest of six children and was...

    True. But it's hilarious using that as some sort of signifier of "authentic" working-class cred. Isn't it the case that the only high-profile Irish band who can actually credibly make this claim are The Script? And Imelda May.

    What gig did you go to last night?

    The GBV one was pre-recorded too. It does seem like a bit of a "cheat" for that reason but on the other hand it means it can be filmed/edited properly and the sound mixed properly afterwards too. There were little filmed inserts at various points as well. I mean it's really an entirely new...

    What television series are you currently making your way through?

    Caught most of this. It's fantastic. Afterwards I found myself thinking ... "say what you like about Trump, he hasn't yet started an unnecessary war that resulted in over half a million deaths and the destruction of an entire country". This should probably be in the Unpopular Opinions thread.

    What movie did you watch last night?

    I enjoyed this. Good exercise in how to make a weird sci-fi film with no budget. Watched Something In The Air last night. Oliver Assayas movie about high-school/student radicals in post-68 Paris. Very hazy and nostalgic in spite of some heavy-duty violence and protest. Deadly soundtrack. Good...
