Thanks guys, open to any tips or tricks you might have.

Been working on a name shortlist. So far Daley, Clyde, Stuart, Malcolm, Dimitri and Schif have failed to make the cut.
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

Such a mediocre musician with a rabid media following her ever boring story
The spiral of silence refers to the idea that when people fail to speak, the price of speaking rises. As the price to speak rises, still fewer speak out, which further causes the price to rise, so that fewer people yet will speak out, until a whole culture or nation is silenced. This is what happened in Germany.

If you do not speak, you are not being neutral, but are contributing to the success of the thing you refuse to name and condemn.

Hahaha I was about to say the same thing. She’s extremely talented, she writes all her own music and she knocks out albums at an absolute rate of knots.

She’s not really my thing, but I can see why she’s insanely popular.

The fact she drives a bunch of old white fuddy duddies mad is just the icing on the cake.

Tute on, Taylor… tute on!

She doesn't bother me, I think she's supremely talented.

Like I said, her music isn't really my cup of tea, but she doesn't make me irrationally mad or "sick of hearing about her!"

Sounds like it’s the media you should be hating on not her. The standard of journalism is pathetic. Her on the other hand, she is killing it. I can’t not think of an artist in my lifetime that has generated the interest she has.

Selling out the MCG is massive. She'd probably sell out a second show too. I can't think of many other artists that could... maybe Bruno Mars or a few of those old rockers like ACDC or the Stones?

Not sure where to post this, but today marks 7 years since my mum passed away. She was 59, and succumbed to lung cancer.

My brother and I miss her very much.

I don't always get along with you all, but if I can plead with you to really love on your mates and family every day, please do so.

Petty differences over player selections, political parties and the other stuff can be challenging, but at times I'm reminded that all that is superfluous to what really matters in life.

So it's with a sombre drink, tilt to the sky and a thank you mum, I reflect on her and the love I've missed ever since.

Thanks, boney. I was not in a good way yday, but I'm feeling a little better today.

My in-laws are lovely people, but they had some health issues recently. Father in law had his prostate removed and had a mini stroke the day after which sent panic thru the family. Ma in law had a hysterectomy and then cataract removed, and on top of all that we're purchasing a house which has been stressful.
Can't wait to watch the Raiders to help reduce the stress, hey?
