theDuke | 5607 comments Remaining Round 8 noms:

170. Wildcard Round 4 - Any song you like, specifically new or seldom heard songs (originally an idea by Val)

Round 9 themes:

171. 'The Nurse With Wound List'. On the first two Nurse albums appeared this list of artists, said to have been influences on the group (as it was in the beginning). Mr Stapleton later claimed some didn't even exist, but research seems to suggest all in fact, did. http://nwwlist.org is where to go; click on 'artists' then on 'named' which contains all those on the list. The albums included are merely suggested. You don't have to stick with them; anything by that artist is ok. Nothing from the 'Related' or 'More' sections please. There should be plenty of bands known to all but the most sheltered of souls! You will get kudos points for the weirder side of things though. - Tim
172. Songs about getting married - Val (pipe down all you cynics! I want to see lots of brides, rings, bells, aisles, chapels, weddings, etc)
173. Songs with sound effects in them (thunder claps, breaking glass, cars revving up, roaring crowds, dogs barking etc. etc.) - KJS
174. It's not big and it's not clever, but the tunes are good. Songs with expletives in the lyrics (not necessarily in the title). It can be a single utterance or a blue tirade (though, with one glorious exception, I tend towards the one-off). - Fishy Jim
175. Songs with US state names in the title - let's hear your Californias, Hawaiis, Idahos etc. - Rob
176. Sample Example - Tracks that sample other songs - Helen
177. 'One Album Wonders - Round 2' - Same rules as before, but noms can be selected from albums released upto 5 years ago. Any one off solo albums produced by now defunct Artists/Bands - EP's, singles, Live albums, Comps also produced by the artist/band are irrelevant, but noms must come from the sole album itself. - theDuke
178. Toys, general or specified, in the title or artist's name - Brass Neck
179. 'Say I'm Your No.1' - your favourite song which topped the nation's (BBC, of course) charts. simple as.......- tech

Here's the link to nom new themes for Round 9, keep 'em coming...please!:

Evening folks.

The penultimate theme for round 8 now....so let's dive into it; this week it's Sussex's theme - Compass Points - Title must contain one (or more) of: North/South/East/West.

Another straightforward one then, but as usual, any queries, ask Sussex for clarification. Nick did ask SW if derivatives like 'Western' & 'Northern' were acceptable, but I don't think there was a reply to that yet.

Anyhoo...noms in by 10pm Weds, thank you.

The UK seems to have gone back into a mini ice age again, just when I thought Spring is here! No snow fallen in Pembrokeshire yet, but it sure is icy out there. So stay safe out folks, and have a lovely week folks.

SussexWelsh | 4964 comments Sorry, I didn't see TheFoe's question. What thread was it on?
I think I'll stick to just North/South/East/West. There should be plenty (I hope).

Hi Tim, sorry but as I said in message (No. 2), that doesn't match the criteria.

Oh pants. I was going to nominate Eastworld by T of Hate. Hmmm, will have to have another think about this one or perhaps I could just modify it to "East World"! 😉

theDuke | 5607 comments Had loads of choices for this theme....but it was a toss up between Hendrix, B-52's, or this classic hippy number...and the best version imo.

Stymied by Derek's authoritarian ruling, and I had such a good song lined up for you all to feast upon :-)

My back-up plan is a bit more mainstream than my usual offerings, sorry.

theDuke | 5607 comments Hello Folks.

Slight drop in numbers this week, but we have a nice round 15 songs to enjoy..or not...which means we get to cast the 5 votes apiece.

Today is the day, I'll be getting the first of my cataracts done this afternoon....and I can't wait for the 'fog' to lift! Unlikely as it is, there is a small possibility that the hospital may wish to keep me in over the weekend, as much as I doubt it...as I've no idea what to expect tbh, so if this round doesn't get closed on Sunday, then that's why.

Also I've been told that I'm not to overstress my sight for a few days while the eye heals up...so, using a PC could be on the banned list, for a few days. Anyway..just thought I'd mention it, should I not be available for any reason, to close this round on Sunday and set up the next one. If nothing has happened by Monday, then by all means, somebody else can set up the next round, if they want to. But anyway, fingers crossed...the result will be amazing...I really could do with clarity!

For now, enjoy the toons...and i'll see ya when I see ya! (pun intended!)

Tara for a bit! 8-)

Voting closes 10pm Sunday.

message 38: by Rob (new)

Rob Campbell | 467 comments All the best Duke. Looking at a screen for a few days afterwards sounds like a no-no - I remember from my eye injury from a few years ago - all fine now - but for the first week or so, I could hardly open my eyes, let alone look at a screen. Having said that a cataract op should be far smoother than an unexpected eye trauma!


message 39: by theDuke (new)

theDuke | 5607 comments Cheers folks!

Oh one more thing...there are a few folks yet to punt on Val AFL thread...the first game kicks off in about an hours time...if anybody spots Mc, Philip, Redjohn, Deano & Suzy about...can you let them know if they wanna paly it this year....they can tip for the remaining games if they miss today's games.

Right, that's it for me for a few days..I'll be back...some very (hopefully) clear day! ;-)
