  1. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5957869/Shocking-video-shows-driver-81-ploughing-cyclists.html?offset=372&max=100&jumpTo=comment-329570279&reply=329570279#newcomment Shocking footage shows an 81-year-old driver ploughing through a group of cyclists and sending them smashing onto the road. The motorist can be seen overtaking the riders on the busy A359 near Yeovil in Somerset, but passes so close that his front bumper clips their wheels. Lurching forward as the car hits his bike, one of the cyclists smashes into a friend riding just ahead, sending both crashing to the floor. The driver admitted dangerous driving at Taunton Crown Court on July 9. The clip was filmed on a camera attached to the helmet of Martin Wills, who was riding with the group before the incident on November 23 last year. He was the cyclist who got hit by his friend riding behind and his wife Sandra was knocked unconscious in the horror smash. Describing the traumatic accident, he said "The first I knew was a heavy blow to my right buttock". 'This sent me off balance and I fell heavily with my bike landing on top of me. One of the riders was lying in the road a few feet away with her wrecked bike next to her.' Mr Wills miraculously escaped with cuts and bruises, while his wife was left with a broken finger, cracked ribs and a bump on her head. It is not clear what injuries the other cyclists suffered. He added: 'Thank goodness we wear helmets.' Tarrant was disqualified from driving for two years and must taken an extended re-test. He was handed a conditional discharge lasting 18 months and was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £20. **************** The question on everyone's lips is why didn't he stop? The first thing he should've done is check to see if they were alright, but this guy is seen speeding off into the distance. Shocking.
  2. New song... What do you think? EDIT: OFFICIAL Video:
  3. I can't find the old thread so i'll create a new one. Just heard that Rod Temperton, (Songwriter for "Thriller", "Rock With You" and "Off The Wall") has died. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-37565125

    Thanks! I've just downloaded from youtube, but the bit rate now says 128kbps (despite specifying 320). Looks like i'll have to try another programme.

    Yeah, it really is fantastic. I've just had another listen to the album and there's really nothing around today that comes close. Brilliant on every level. Can anyone tell me where I can download the single edits of "Let's Pretend We're Married" and "Automatic"? I'm putting together a best of compilation, but the album versions are to long.

    Neither do Most overrated rapper ever.
  7. I quite liked him in the 90's when "Life Thru A Lens" came out, but he's awful nowadays.

    Yes, it's amazing how quickly time has flown, but looking back on that day, it felt like the world stopped turning. We lost of a great artist when he died.
  10. So sad to hear of her passing. She was wonderful.
  11. Omg, Imagine listening to that child scream for 8 hours with nowhere to escape...
  12. I can honestly say I would kick the living daylights out of him if he did this to me... His screams when the adult pushes him to the floor though.

    My Mother used to play that a lot. Has it ever been remastered? One would think Cherry Red records would have got their claws into it considering they've released most of the SAW stuff from the 80's.

    "Sign o' the Times" concert/film was on Sky Arts last night. Bloody brilliant.
  15. This is the moment a mass brawl erupted and onlookers were left running for cover as racegoers fought at Ascot. Just one week after up to 50 people were seen fighting at Goodwood, the horse-racing world was once again rocked by violence. Despite the Bank Holiday incident sparking an attempt to increase security at Ascot, warring spectators were caught on film throwing punches yesterday. Women tried to break up fights between men wearing three-piece suits as security staff struggled to keep the brawlers apart. The trouble then spilled out from the racing venue and up to the high street, according to witnesses. Ascot communications manager Ashley Morton-Hunte confirmed there were two head injuries resulting from the fight. Both were treated at the scene. 'Sadly, an irresponsible minority can impact on the majority. We take all anti-social behaviour seriously. We can and did eject people.' According to witnesses at Goodwood, the brawlers had been drinking all day before the violence erupted. Shocking behaviour but I laughed when someone on the DM said "Ed Sheeren looked like he was getting a good pasting".

    Aw. I wonder how his career would've turned out if he'd still been around. Such a shame to have died so young.
  17. Elderly man is dragged away and attacked by a lion in front of screaming onlookers after wandering into its enclosure at wildlife park An elderly man was mauled by a huge male lion at a wildlife park in a shocking incident caught on film. The clip, believed to have been filmed on Saturday at the Marakele Predator Park in South Africa, shows the man entering the lion's enclosure. Almost instantly the big cat spots the elderly man, believed to be the owner of the park, and gives chase. Witnesses watch in horror as the animal pursues the man towards the metal door to the pen at the park nine kilometers from Thabazimbi. Onlookers scream as he is dragged back by the beast. The hulking animal claws at the elderly man - who goes limp in its grip. The lion drags the man farther into the enclosure, into some bushes and onlookers scream for help. Then, suddenly, a shot rings out - thought to be from a warden's gun. The lion drops its prey and runs for cover. It is unclear if the man is dead. A woman is heard howling in horror at what she has just witnessed while another man is heard shouting 'get a rifle'.The elderly man remains in a critical condition. The big cat has reportedly been put down in the wake of the grisly attack. Thanks to him wandering into the cat's enclosure, that beautiful creature is now dead for simply doing what comes naturally. STUPID, STUPID Man. 😠
  18. The daily mail just posted a follow up story with the old man sitting in bed with a huge grin plastered across his face. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5681447/Family-Briton-mauled-lion-devastated-animal-shot-killed.html It clearly hasn't sunk in that his stupidity is what caused that beautiful creature to lose it's life...
  19. Ivor guest has just said on facebook that he is producing the new grace jones album. He will be giving us a step by step guide through the process.. So exciting! He produced some of Hurricane and is responsible for the Dub mixes on the re-release in 2011
  20. "He bizarrely decided to strip off mid-flight, load up some high-quality porn on his phone and lie back to have a wank", "walked to the toilet with no clothes on, pissed all over his seat and attacked a flight attendant". There's clearly something wrong with him. I can't imagine anyone in their right mind doing this in view of other passengers.
  21. Yes, Cassettes are definitely making a comeback. God knows why when it was the worst format out of the lot. I lost count how many tapes I thrown out after getting chewed up and mangled. I still buy CD's and can't ever imagine not buying them.

    Songs that you hate.

    I agree, I cannot stand anything they've released - including the Joshua Tree. I don't know what the fuss is about, tbh. I do like a bit of rock music, like Queen, Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones etc, but no...not a fan of U2 at all.
  23. Woman shares shocking video of a PetSmart groomer ABUSING her one-year-old Shih Tzu http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5346869/Woman-shares-footage-dog-abuses-PetSmart.html#newcomment I'm a lover of most animals, but as a Shih Tzu owner I found this so painful to read. Thank heaven's the sick bitch has been sacked and has been exposed for her cruel treatment of dogs. Disgusting!
  24. I can't remember the last time I saw George Michael...but it's great to see him back and looking healthy... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3981224/George-Michael-rekindles-friendship-old-flame-Kenny-Goss-seven-years-split.html Great....now get to work on your album, bitch!
