Modern ballet? Ballet can be diverse in its application. I always recall a friend describing a hopelessly pissed man collapsing into the stage gear of a pub band on St Patrick's day, causing a load explosion, a few sparks and a near fire, as 'balletic'.

Hey, I'm not in the slightest bit disappointed. I'm just pissed off I didn't get to hang my RoI flag out of the window. The Scottish one is still safely tucked away somewhere, never to see the light of day it seems.

I don't know whether to be delighted that you've got a Saltire, or miffed at that wee jibe! I'll just be delighted...maybe one day we'll give you a reason to fly it high above the streets. I'd like to see you in a wee tammy, playing the pipes and dancing the gay gordons! :lol:

OK heres the correct answer - Spandau Ballet took their name from a Nazi guard term for the contortions of Jewish prisoners being gassed to death. There was a large gas chamber in the city of Spandau. Pretty gruesome huh?

Someone post a question please my brain is dead - I think the football killed it! :?

Crikey, that's a grim fact.
Off to see Bob Dylan tomorrow, so a Bob question. What album did he release on Island (Asylum in the US) when he was on the outs with Columbia?
