    Oh, dear. (I never liked his songs, anyway. And he only actually had 5 different ones. I've always said they were all rubbish.) Perhaps Van the Man is Oracle!

    https://www.theguardian.com/music/20...wn-covid-songs

    On No More Lockdown, Morrison sings:

    “No more lockdown / No more government overreach / No more fascist bullies / Disturbing our peace …
    No more taking of our freedom / And our God-given rights / Pretending it’s for our safety / When it’s really to enslave …”

    The song also condemns “celebrities telling us what we’re supposed to feel”, although the 75-year-old Northern Irish songwriter denied doing this himself.

    One advantage I've found of my memory getting worse and worse is that I can re-read books, re-watch films, and re-listen to music numerous times with just a short break in between, and each time it's like the first time. Mind you, for some of the books, films and music in my collection, that's not a good thing!

If so, perhaps one way to start coming to terms with your anger would be to ask yourself the same questions as you ask of others.
    Not angry at all. Covid aside life is good. However it's apparent that on this forum, more than ever at the moment, there are a few posters intent on trying to goad.

    With regard to the subject of forum identity. You'll see my name mentioned at the bottom of all my posts and I've been around on this forum for quite a while and made no secret of who I am. So your confusion over my identity is puzzling. Mind you, it's also a remarkably similar approach to a few now apparently lapsed members of the forum which suggests some previous connection to old members, maybe not, but I suppose it's best not to go down that route.

    Far better to just leave you to your own devices, which I will, although I'm sure you'll struggle to resist the urge as others also do.

    Try and fight the demons.

    Making a counter point doesn't seem to be good enough for a few of the forum members. They have to also leave a snide little cheap shot as well.

    I take my hat off to Mike here. I do disagree with him, but I do accept he knows his stuff and he is always cordial, presents his facts, doesn't play the man.
    I wish I could hold to his standards

    Seems to me that some of those who think they’re being goaded, should be goaded to look at their own goading history first before goading others about their goading.... 😊

    And, unlike me, has never (as far as I'm aware) called anyone an 'anonymous pr*ck' and justified it by saying something along the lines of "Unlike everyone else on here, I'm just a Northern lad, me, and so am allowed to call people a pr*ck?". Oh, hang on a minute, I haven't done that, either, have I? I think what I'm remembering is that someone might have said that to me, but for the life of me I can't remember who it was. Still, no matter.

    Incidentally, and just out of interest, who else am I now? I'm not still Graham Breeze, am I? I thought the tablets the doctor gave me had cleared up that little problem I had. God forbid, I'm not Oracle, am I? That would be a blow. But, hang on again. I'm pretty sure I've already published quite a detailed CV on another thread to establish my credentials.

    Alright, you lot, come on, own up. Which ones of you are me?

    I thought I'd try to move this thread back towards its topic by mentioning that, for the drive to the car park to start my run this afternoon, I chose to listen to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony in the car. So, my question is, how would people rank Beethoven's Ninth relative to Veedon Fleece?

    I thought I chose to listen to the Ninth because the tempo might get me in the mood for my run, but I later wondered if there was something more subliminal going on. When I got to the car park for the start of my run there were still a few minutes of the first movement left, so I sat in the car to listen to the end. I opened the sleeve notes to have a flick through while I was listening, and a phrase immediately jumped out of the page at me - "He begins the Ninth with an enigmatic, even irritating gesture". Was I being sent a message?
