          Three.ie let you use phone credit to pay for stuff on Google Play

          With Google Play credits, not transferable to Google Pay by looks of it

          Most apps of worth direct you to a website to pay for stuff

          So pay with debit cards etc/ Even threes own website wont let you buy with the credit they say you can spend

          Have some credit about to run out...

          Anything worth buying in google store that can be paid for with Google Play credits?

          Or am i just renting a bunch of movies?

            Can you use it to pay subscriptions in the Google Play store, say an Irish Time sub for example?

              Not the Irish Times afaik. You can pay for the London Times, New York Times, and Washington Post with 3 credit though.

                Actually think it is quite nice out. Bit fresh alright but great for clearing out the cobwebs.

                  eamonhonda - I've been listening to the new(ish) Madlib single 'Road of the Lonely Ones' for the last week or so, really like it.

                  What you recommend to dive into his work - new album (not sure if out yet) or some old stuff?

                    You can pick a ton of random things that are worse for bitcoin for the environment. I'll randomly pick jewelry, just gold alone for jewelry is way worse for energy use and literally destroys the environment when getting it, let alone all the other bad uses of it, like sitting as a store of value. Won't anybody think of the whataboutism.

                      Yes but you get class shows like gold rush from that endeavour.

                        New album is great.

                        I really like his first couple of Beat Konducta albums

                        Collab with MF Doom Madvillainy is amazing

                        Did a couple of albums under the name Quasimoto which are worth checking out too

                          What about when Bitcoin takes over the world as the store of currency and its 1m X bigger... gold there’s only a wee bit left

                                Sadly i think he was genuinely annoyed, and and was a little pissed off

                                  Remember him posting he's got a new work post and bringing a colleague with him albeit in same company. He's probably maxed out with the setup of all that. Hell be back, cant help himself that lad. Unless he brought A1 Sharon with him and he really couldnt help himself.

                                    You've a lot of work ahead of you haha!

                                    New album is out and it's fantastic.

                                    He has a series called Madlib Medicine Show, half of them are production half of them are mixes, 2, 5 and 10 would be my picks but they are all worth a listen

                                    Shades Of Blue - all beats using Blue Note samples
                                    Madvillainy - album with MF DOOM

                                    Quasimoto - The Unseen - quasimoto is his alter ego where he pitched up him rapping to sound like a different character, might be a bit of an acquired taste but I love it.

                                    Pinata - album with Freddie Gibbs

                                      I didn't really understand it. It just seemed like Hitch and him were disagreeing with each other on some political point for probably the 27th time in 10 years.
                                      I only scanned it cause it was going on a bit, but it looked to be fairly cordial.

                                                    It matters what you eat, not where it is from. Transport is negligible. Energy and emissions (below) are much more based on the growth.

                                                          Could be some serious real life shit going on for all we know. I doubt he's too bothered about winning or losing a few arguments on the internet.

But that argument was minor compared to some of the arguments we had in the past, so it's not the argument alone.

So lashed it together today and to say it was a massive success would be an understatement. Lockdown is going to absolutely ruin restaurants for me. I always enjoyed cooking and trying new things but it's on another level now being at home all the time.

                                                                      Sea bass with chorizo, baby spud and feta salad was the main. And savage.

I don't know people to play it with, but it seems like if I did then that would feel very much like actually playing a game with them. Need to play it a bit more against their AI before venturing into the live play, but its a very very real experience.

Posting more cause I think quite a few people here would enjoy the podcast in general. They are all early startup investors who came together mainly from a love of poker as they all play in very high stakes private games hence the name of the podcast. The discussions around different topics are generally very entertaining and well informed.

Here's my favourite of the 3 versions of Black Flag's TV Party they recorded (for the Repo Man soundtrack) - some of the older folks on here will remember the shows referenced (Fantasy Island, CHiPs, Hill St. Blues etc...)

I was at a sound check in a fairly nondescript club. It was Sonny Rollins checking out the mike and acoustics. And when he was finished he walked down to me, and dropped a bunch of sheet music and said 'you left those behind last time'.

                                                                                                            Nothing to do with Henry obvs
