You've pretty much summed up why I've not bothered to get a TV, nor is it missed. Everything I want is available on demand through the internet - why bother?


Yeah pretty much this. Haven't had a TV in years, just get everything online, especially with Netflix et al stepping up their game on the original programming front.

"Hello, is this Bloodstock? This is the BBC and we would like to speak to Dee Snider about Donald Trump. By the way, do we get free food and backstage access all weekend?"

It seems that way.

The bloke doing the interviews is normally the one that does the games reviews so I'm assuming he's a fan.

Yes. It sucks so much. Get to a GP if you think it's definitely more than just a UTI (i.e. you're throwing up, got a fever, back pain that you can't massage away), leaving it can cause it to get pretty nasty. They'll give you antibiotics. In the meantime drink plenty of water.

Yeah. If you've got a kidney infection you'll pretty much be delirious with pain and throwing up etc. Sometimes bladder infections can travel up your ureta if they are left unchecked though.
You've probably just got a bladder infection, as they can give you pain in your back, kind of where your kidneys are, I get them on the regular. Go get some antibiotics!

Even the staff are cats. Although that one died they have now got a new one.

What about Felix, the Huddesfield station cat? They made her chief pest controller and she has a cat flap in the ticket barrier! She has a Facebook page. People mainly just take pictures and send her treats.
