I'm guessing at an event like that there's always going to be at least one dickhead recording it on their phone.
It's usually not bad. I've never actually seen someone filming it, though it clearly happens:



Gives you some idea of what it's like at least.

If you can shush people over the sound of an orchestra then good luck to you :p

Yeah, it's very much about enjoying the music rather than watching the film.

Re: The Room 102 thread - for things you love or just having a bloody good praise!

- Films In Concert. I usually go to the Royal Albert Hall once or twice a year for one of these; they put up a huge screen and play a film with the soundtrack being played live by an orchestra. Every single event I've been to has been absolutely fantastic, starting with Fellowship of the Ring back i...

They do that on purpose to try and get people to pay to choose their seats.

Re: The 'I Just Bought' Thread - Technology Edition

They're absolutely fantastic. I tested them out at a launch party they had in London last year and listened to a couple of bits of music I like; I could hear parts of the underlying structure I'd never heard before - it was just mindblowing.

Nice. I've got a pair of Nuraphones which I picked up about a year ago now for £280. Great bit of kit.

How much? I'm not going to hunt the web to find out what model they are. I'm happy enough with my own expensive but totally worth it headphones :P

Re: The Elephant in the Room - Brexit

The document leaked to the Times a month ago (which included almost verbatim what's been released today) was 37 pages long. Reporters are also saying that civil servants and the government in Gibraltar are saying that some of this is 18 months old, so seriously out-dated. The fact that they've relea...

My other love is tea. Of which I currently have two cupboards full of the stuff.

I've put a tea-buying embargo on myself until I have some space ¬_¬

Re: The Room 102 thread - for things you love or just having a bloody good praise!

I am also a big lover of board games. It all started a few years ago when I was working a shit job and a few of us decided we should have one evening a week where we stopped working at a more reasonable time (7pm) and relaxed a bit. We ended up playing Risk Legacy and now... Now my collection stands...

Re: Good TV (aka, the TV series spamthread), the second series

Finished Mindhunter season 2 last night. Considering how much of a Peaky Blinders fan I am, I found myself drawn to watching Mindhunter first, it's substantially more compelling than the latest season of Peaky's. I blitzed through both seasons of Mindhunter when the second one came out and it is ve...
