If you're coming to the Bloodstock forums for taste in music, you're doing something hugely wrong. :lol:

I don't like either, do I win?

Jazz is just totally unlistenable for me, I could watch Evil Scarecrow for the lols though. But didn't as I was watching bands in the tents.

I remember standing near the Rock Soc tent with Alex and Hannah when Shining were playing, thinking "What the christ is this mess?!"

I'll admit Shining isn't for everyone, they definitely had too many sax solos, but how anyone can sit through 40 minutes of ES completely bewilders me, I'm not such a fan of silly English humour so that might have something to do with it.

That's a point actually. Has anyone here ever had their qualifications checked?
I think I had my GCSE's checked for A level, and my A level/UCAS points checked for uni and that was it. Could have lied the whole time

I don't think anyone's checked mine ever, definitely not my degree if I'm now working in IT. :lol:

I had them checked for my first job after school. After that no. I don't even know where my certificates are or even if I still have them anymore. After a certain age of about 21 they are more interested in your experience than qualifications. Obviously that excludes people just out of Uni, although if you worked whilst at Uni that's seen as a bonus.

Documentary on RTE about Dermot Morgan. This is brilliant as I'd obviously known he had a comedy career pre-Father Ted but had never seen any of it. Genius stuff.

I don't think anyone really gives a shit about A level or GCSE's in a market of everyone has degrees. Everyone except me. One day I guess.

Out of curiosity, who is that in your avatar? I can feel him peering into my soul. To be honest I find it oddly arousing.
