    Yer wan in the chase has Autism

      The Bond movie is enjoyable enough nonsense with a couple of decent twists and a fitting way for Craig to bow out as 007.

      Liked the Cuban Bond girl.

        Hi,

        Just a small post to let any IPB members know that my brother Keith passed away last Sunday. His funeral was yesterday and it was a wonderful celebration of his life.

        Keith had not been active on the poker scene for a while but I know a lot of members here knew Keith when he was active in the poker community.

        Say a prayer for him & think of him. He leaves a huge hole in our lives.

                Chapelles obsession with trans people is a bit much.
                It feels like he's been that so universally lauded that the trans pushback is the one thing he's been pulled up on in like a decade and he can't get past it.

                Even if it's not how he personally feels, he keeps trying to get his jokes over on the subject. Telling I guess, he had to explain himself to the trans bathroom bill whooper. Talk shit, attract flies.

                  Do you think Netflix should take it down though? I wouldn't watch a Jim Jefferies show, because I think he's an unfunny drunken lout. I wouldn't want to deprive the people who do find him entertaining their fun though.

                    I heard on Friday. Wouldn't have known Keith that well but had the occasional chat with him. Very sad, RIP.

                      What is the counterfactual world in which there is a different outcome? The GBS was an important cultural institution for a segment of Dublin of which you aren't part - how exactly do you expect you to see the negative effects of it being closed?

                        Fair enough. I'll admit I had a few beers on me when I read it and that combined with being quite passionate about the whole issue would have coloured my reading of your post. When I read my reply back on Saturday morning, I did question myself whether I was too OTT. Genuine apologies that I took it up the wrong way.

                        I do disagree about the pre/post situation of the GBS, but think that is more about the circles we operate in which is understandable.

                        Would still enjoy a chat about your opinions on it over a glass of vino or seven.

                          Currently I'm in Shoreditch which for a few years was a cool place full of a wide mix of music and arts... People found out and it become successful rents went up. Now it's a crappy mess of nightclub and the demographics have changed radically in a few years.
                          that's how cities evolve.
                          Just because a few good musicians played in a bar occasionally does not mean that the vast majority was from pisspoor amateurs diddilying for tourists. And it doesn't come close to making it a cultural shibboleth.

                              If you are looking for opinion on Dublin Culture - ignore the culchies , they dont really get it . If Matt Molloys was torn down to house a Mayo GAA crises centre I might listen.

                                    I'm somewhat baffled by your post?

                                    You seem to be saying that a really cool, culturally vibrant area was ruined by money/developers coming in and it was turned into a absolute mess. That surely isn't a good thing?

                                    Then you seem to just accept that there isn't an alternative, that it's just evolution, c'est la vie. Why should we just accept it, why shouldn't we do something to prevent that happening?

                                    You then seem to be underestimating the impact The Cobblestone has had here. If you do even the slightest bit of research, you will the sheer amount of people who are crediting it with getting their break, a place that was so influential to them. To label it as some tourist spot full of pisspoor amateurs is way off the mark.

Then we can start moving forward confidently knowing the wires (which the surveyor said were grand, but would need to be changed at some point as they dare from 1959) won't fry us if we add too many connections to the network. The heating in the house is electric, so we want to get in some of those new super efficient German electric heaters, but can't really without knowing the core electrics are fine.

                                                                                Does that seem like a fine decision, or more akin to a decision to live in Bray?
                                                                                If you're going the full re-wire, it's worth considering getting network cabling dropped in around the house to a few rooms. You seem like the sort who'd have a few internet-connected experiments that could benefit from it.

I wouldn't watch a Jim Jefferies show, because I think he's an unfunny drunken lout. I wouldn't want to deprive the people who do find him entertaining their fun though.

                                                                                  Would I want netflix to talk down a chubby brown special? I wouldnt really care but I'd hope they wouldnt promote it.

                                                                                      You seem to be saying that a really cool, culturally vibrant area was ruined by money/developers coming in and it was turned into a absolute mess. That surely isn't a good thing?

                                                                                      Then you seem to just accept that there isn't an alternative, that it's just evolution, c'est la vie. Why should we just accept it, why shouldn't we do something to prevent that happening?

                                                                                      You then seem to be underestimating the impact The Cobblestone has had here. If you do even the slightest bit of research, you will the sheer amount of people who are crediting it with getting their break, a place that was so influential to them. To label it as some tourist spot full of pisspoor amateurs is way off the mark.
                                                                                      Tbh, I wouldn't think of the cobblestone as a tourist destination really.
                                                                                      Any time I've been in there, the tourist element is at a minimum. Any tourist there, that I've seen, is usually brought by a local who is already familiar with the place.

That their location, in their respective hot decades, was notable at the time, but was driven by needing to find somewhere cheap. In return then those types of places help to make things vibrant. Albeit that obviously hasn't worked for 101 Talbot, as nobody followed them there.

The creative districts in Manhattan gradually became fashionable, then gentrified and the creatives were forced to move elsewhere - mainly Brooklyn.

We want that mixture, that's what gives cities their energy. The problem is how to safeguard that within a market-driven infrastructure.

Never realised how close America was to full legalisation in 1977 and how the stoners managed to fuck it up in classical stoner fashion. Worth 45 mins.
                                                                                                      "We are not Europeans. Those people on the continent are freaks."

Then we can start moving forward confidently knowing the wires (which the surveyor said were grand, but would need to be changed at some point as they dare from 1959) won't fry us if we add too many connections to the network. The heating in the house is electric, so we want to get in some of those new super efficient German electric heaters, but can't really without knowing the core electrics are fine.
                                                                                                        If it still has the original old style fuseboard, then would be worth while replacing with a modern circuit board. And you could do that without replacing all the cabling as long as there were a few existing separate circuits. From there you could also add a dedicated shower, heater, car charger circuits as needed to the new CB.
                                                                                                        Replacing all the cabling with the boards would be marginally better. But a lot more work as you'll be ripping into wall. Best do as part of another renovation imo - unless they are in a bad way obviously.

                                                                                                        I'd look at the kitchen and bathroom first. How old do they look? What are the finishes materials. Maybe they were replaced recently, but changes are they are the best place to start.
                                                                                                        Most places of that era have odd little fireplaces. Getting rid can give you back usable space in the downstair rooms.
                                                                                                        BER is likely awful. Could improve by insulating the attic. Or my adding a large well insulated extension.

Install a proper electric shower - blow the fuse box. That's why I'm thinking about the wiring. But I genuinely don't have a clue. It just seems reassuring knowing the core fabric of what a house is is grand. As well as reducing the chances of having to dig something up later.

You seem like the sort who'd have a few internet-connected experiments that could benefit from it.

It's an unfortunate thing by it's own that it happens, but it's a sign of a healthy growing city. Things change and move. The only constant is change.

The creative districts in Manhattan gradually became fashionable, then gentrified and the creatives were forced to move elsewhere - mainly Brooklyn.

                                                                                                                    We don't want monochrome cities (otherwise we would all go and live in some hellhole like Singapore). We want that mixture, that's what gives cities their energy. The problem is how to safeguard that within a market-driven infrastructure.

Population is currently down to its lowest since 1975 as so many expats have left due to their covid restrictions and policies. no one want to be there anymore and he says it probably wont get back to the way it was for quite some time.

They've loads of tall buildings and that casino monstrosity by the sea, but most of their life is lived in charming little side streets. The street food cusine is widely viewed as the best in the world. Its a great place.
