So I'm here at college where someone in the year above me has decided to play his own music... Parklife! There is hope!

Edit: Scratch that, he's playing Razorshite now. :cry: :lol:

Here's a question I don't know where to fit, so I'm going on this one.
I've just (finally) opened an account on Instragram and I'm looking for accounts to follow. Are any of the boys in Blur on it and if yes, what are their usernames?
I've been drifting along in the same stale old shoes

thanks! Dave seems like the most interesting to follow. Damon's account looks like it's just a promotion tool and Graham's hasn't been used since 2013 - or he keeps it private.

Yeah, as we know, Damon's social media team is absolute shit, so it has barely anything worthwhile on it and it has barely been used even back when he was promoting ER. Dave has a lot of nice stuff on there. Also, I believe Graham is here now: https://instagram.com/tinhats/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

His woeful social media team might be a reflection of Damon's zero level of interest in social media personally.

His views and mine on a lot of issues are very similar.

Blur were just a category on Decimate, the BBC One game show. The question was "which member of Blur stood as parliamentary candidate for the Labour Party in the 2010 election?" Graham, Alex and Dave were the options and he said that Alex was the most famous so he went with him, and that is why "decimate!" was shouted at him by a computerised voice.

Was down my local ("to the locaaaal-ooohhh"!) this evening when on the jukebox came this familiar riff and I spent an embarrassingly long time working out what it was until I realised it was I Broadcast! 8-)

Does the 21 boxset come with the special edition of each album?

Yes, with the additional B-Sides disc.
