  1. There is kind of a rivalry I'd say, but it's more of a friendly, banterous one. We like to make a lot of fun out of each other and make jokes of each other's countries, but I wouldn't say it's a proper rivalry! It's just because the Aussies are so similar to us I feel, and our 2 countries have quite a similar sense of humour.


    England and Germany though, now that's a rivalry :)

  2. Yep I am a huge fan! Where did you see him? I've been waiting and waiting for ages for him to come to the UK but he never seems to.


    Levels though is definitely the song of the year for me!

  3. Just as long as the local forces aren't as corrupt and incompetent as they are now. If we leave before they're self-sufficient, then it will be a mission failed.


    It'll be on their shoulders, not ours. They have to take advantage of the opportunity we gave the, we can't hold their hand all the time. That's the main thing before withdrawing, a force cannot simply call quits because it's getting too hard.


    Very true, I think the US doesn't want this to be seen as another Vietnam so the whole thing will be seen through to the end.

  4. I've just been watching some Band of Brothers again, and my God it's brilliant. While The Pacific in itself is great, yet it will always be compared to BoB and that's kind of it's downfall.


    And just to reiterate, that concentration camp scene is genuinely one of the only things on tv where I've actually been upset after it. I can't physically believe that people would be so sick as to do that to other human beings.


    Yep it was on the whole a great festival, despite me only taking trainers which was a massive mistake. I do wonder what it would be like to have so many tall people blocking your view, thankfully I'm tall enough not to have any problems. I was glad last night as well as we left around 11 just before the mad rush of traffic so I was home pretty quickly, I only live about 5 miles away from the site!


    Yeah, I got back last night, I left when it was clear the strokes weren't going to sing disco 2000 or common people before running off stage shouting ''stuff you pulp'' I would have liked to have stayed for pulp but we wanted to avoid the rush and get home and have baths ect.

    I saw the view, enter shikari, muse, the architects, the blackout, new found glory, some of bring me the horizon, the deftones, warpaint, panic! at the disco, the pigeon detectives, seasick steve, two door cinema club, madness and the strokes. We saw Tim Minchin, Russel Kane and a few others in the alternative stage. You?



    Where were you camped?


    You saw a lot more than me actually, I wasn't even planning on coming this year but my mate rang me on wednesday night saying he'd won 2 tickets in a Jack Daniels competition so I thought I'd have to go! From what I remember I saw Frank Turner, The View, Elbow, Muse, Sub Focus, Nero, Two Door Cinema Club, Madness and Jimmy Eat World. To be honest there wasn't that much I wanted to see this year so I just spent most of my time drinking/at the relentless stage or silent disco. I've been since 2009 but I kind of feel like Leeds fest isn't for me anymore, I'd really like to go to Glastonbury but that's not on until 2013 now, and I also really want to go to Creamfields as I'm more of a dance music kind of guy and there you have to be 18 to get in so there's not gonna be a load of 16 year olds running rampage after 3 tins of fosters.


    Muse were absolutely amazing though, probably the best act I've seen out of the past 3 Leeds fests. Also, when Madness came on me and a mate managed to get onto the big screen a few times, he was on my shoulders and I was wearing a fonejacker mask and he had a cape with a bird hat on, it was a ridiculous sight.


    And we camped in orange, we always do, it's good as it doesn't get too badly trashed but it is quite a walk to the arena. And it's got that massive hill in it which gets really muddy, and yesterday we thought it would be a good idea to go down it...in a wheelchair. Oh the joys of music festivals....!


    Muse were amazing!!!!! I don't really know what else to say, they were on Friday night and I LOVED IT!!!! anyway I just got back to I'm off in the bath now as I smell



    Leeds Fest? I was there too! Just got back last night, what an incredible weekend. The Muse set was just unreal, I want to go back! Who else did you see?

  5. I've just watched the interview with Rupert again and I've got to say I like how Clarkson hardly mentions Harry Potter. In recent interviews it seems like the trio have to answer the same questions again and again and again, so it's good to see something different being discussed. I would love to see Emma on Top Gear, although I know Clarkson would heckle her a bit over driving a Prius! But I'm sure he would ask her questions completely different to ones she's used to being asked.
