Room 101 What would you put in it and why?

Freebasing Flamingemeralds

I'd put in unofficial and out of date signs on highways.  I hate unofficial signs stuck on lamp posts and fences advertising restaurants, agricultural shows, schools, hand car wash, antique markets and car boot sales, especially if the event was last year! There's enough clutter on the roads as it is.  It annoys me that they stick them up, then don't take them down after the event.  Grrrrrrr!!!!

Political correctness for fairly obvious reasons and Chris Moyles for reasons I can't say because of political correctness.

2 posts dropped

can we drop the 'political' based posts as we do have a 'serious' forum thats members only and set up for such 

best use that for political discussion and use this one for the not so serious/political

thanks

Bootlegs - do I really need to explain?

Lots of words and phrases:

”guys” and “can I get” in shops and restaurants 

“stone mint”, “birth sleeve”, “vinyls”, “toon” and “on that floor” 

Scene-wise, people with no idea putting non-events on in order to charge folk to listen to people with no records / idea who think that fannying about behind the decks or wearing a hat somehow disguises the fact that they’ve no records / idea.

Merry Christmas  x

Adverts with girls playing the acoustic guitar or the sodding ukelele. 

It's like they're all being sung by the same miserable, breathlessy voiced chick who's being forced at gunpoint into churning out non-stop,sickly sweet covers of terrible corporate Rock and Pop songs.

I can imagine the recording process goes something like this...after they've unlocked her first from inside the cupboard they keep her in,obviously.

"yeah,that's great but could you get a bit closer to the mic please luv?"

"it's already in my mouth though..."

"yeah I know, just get it right in there... and try to sound like a cockney"

"bwike bis?"

"perfect!... now,lets stick a  shitload of compression on her voice and crank up that  ukelele fellas ! 

"blink blink-a blink-a dink, blinky blink-a blinky dink, flinky dink, blinky dink, flinka dinky ding!".....

 

Rinse and repeat forever.

Grown men wearing hats indoors.

The use of talcum powder on dance floors.

DJs who turn up just before their set and then disappear straight after it.

How big is this room?

Love that.

The 'birth sleeve' BS is just another sales gimmick from dealers. And of course there the classic phrase "Oh so soulful" to add to the room 101 list.

Records advertised as 'rare' & 'a dj must have' - if every dj should have it then it cant really be rare.

'Buddy' - people i dont know calling me 'buddy' (or even people i do know come to that)

The phrase :

"Wow. Just wow"

Never ending email questionnaires from companies who say they "want feedback'. In reality, they have not got the slightest interest in what you tell them, they just want to be able to say they "seek" feedback.

The term "Holy Grail" applied to records. Especially when they're not even that rare anyway.

And, yes, "buddy", is very irritating

Whether or not a collective noun takes a singular or plural verb depends on the context.  If you're referring to a group as a single unit, then it's a singular verb.  A group as a collection of individuals - a plural verb.

The group is singing in harmony.

The group are playing different instruments.

People who flash their lights at you to let you turn when you’re turning right , when there’s fuck all behind you or them , and especially when someone is also wanting to exit the same junction not knowing who they’re flashing for them or you ! Glad I don’t ride a motorbike anymore. Had a guy yesterday stopped on a four lane roundabout and flashed his lights wanting to let me and the wagon in the next lane to me out onto the roundabout, while three lanes of traffic were going round , it was flowing traffic ffs , so he can go in as well!

Agree with virtually all of this except 'celery' (wife uses it quite a bit in casseroles...), thought i was the only one who thinks Michael McIntyre is a total T**T.

Mmmm... I think they may have that one right...but I stand to be corrected. 'Couple' is a singular noun (although it means two) and 'couples ' would be the plural, and the rule is usually single noun, single verb, so "is" and "is" .... probably right. From someone cleverer than me, its called the 'subject-verb agreement'....but over to the grammar experts🤪
