    If you could build the perfect 9. You'd go back and realise you should have just cloned Dupont. His all round skillet, Rugby IQ, speed, leadership and mentality are elite. He's a generational talent and a joy to watch.

    If you take away Aaron Smith's passing I can't think of another 9 that is better in any category than Dupont.

    (I'll exclude Faf De Klerk being an annoying little bollix as he's peerless in that regard.)

    Nice to see Farrell receive a thumping high but legal tackle. England using their impressive size and line speed well. Farrell at 10 is much better equipped to run that power game imo.
    England are a very average team and we'll destroy them in a few weeks. This is like watching a game from 15 years ago.

    Do you get any stats on listeners on Spotify? (Like on Youtube, demographics, retention etc)
    They have a site called Spotify for artists that breaks down your listeners by location, gender and age, and also where the streams come from. They have two new sections called release engagement and audience engagement but I've barely looked at them yet.

    Seeing the map of where all the listeners are is pretty cool

    was invited to a gig by a local band last night, completely unsure of what to expect but I enjoyed it. What I know about music could be written on the back of a box of matches but there are a fair few here with more knowledge and nous than me so in case anyone is interested there's a couple of links below. Don't think I've ever attached a video so it may or may not work but the youtube link code should come through at least.

    obviously everything is in Spanish...every day is a school day

    They finished strong with all the hits, as expected. Everyone up dancing and clapping for the encore with the cast making sure everyone stayed up instead of sitting down after each song.

    Wings, shakes and hot dogs in eddie rockets after. Grand little night in the capital.

    Full band from the movie before it splintered off into various revivals...

    Enjoy - should be a lot of fun.

    PS... oh wait... it's not the band, it's a play/musical right?
    Yeah, it's just a musical adaptation. It's better than I expected tbf and they've kept some of the famous lines from the film in. Few laughs and decent show so far.

    I've never gotten the love of steak. Gives me an annoying erection the morning afterwards every time, regardless of the quality of meat or how it was cooked. More lentils for me going forward.

    We left at least 15 points out there too. 4 tries to 1 tells you everything you need to know.

    Might seem like nitpicking but I think two of our starters have been poor in both games - Hansen and O'Mahony (whose engine is gone imo).

    Ever since I did material on stage about people illegally downloading my DVDs there has been a slow trickle of tenners sent to my agent by guilty cyber-pirates.
    It’s a bit late for that now. So if you’re feeling ashamed why not make a donation to…

    The Sathya Sai Sanctuary Trust for Nature, in Co Sligo, EIRE.

    It is a refuge for old, injured, unwanted, abandoned, neglected and abused donkeys, who no longer fit into a world geared for profit and productivity, and which is presently dominated by heavy agricultural machinery.

    A few reasons. Money was limited. It started up based on private funding and donations. So resources were limited. Then there was the death of Gaudi, all the wars and chaos. But also the towers were not structurally possible to be built in early 20th. The stone was strong enough for the weight, but not the lateral loads. So the slow pace sort of worked for technology to catch up.

    Now it’s self funded in that the construction is entirely funded by people coming to see it being built. It’s mostly the tallest towers that are left. Seems like they’ve resolved the construction. Just a case of time now, as it stays open as they build it.

    Just to be clear: Comrade was a common and generally used word to address people in the Labour Party back then, and Brother was more used in Trade Unions. Like he wasn't signed up to any Internationale https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_International
