    Hey, rather late to the party (fashionably late?- God, I hope not), but if you take into account every ‘fact’, previously written into the show- I reckon you could get seriously screwed over, especially with RTD’s “This is the way things are” attitude to the whoniverse. I mean fair enough, he seeded the show for continuity he could use later, such as the Master’s ring being picked up [“I just put that in there in case anybody wanted to use it laster, although I never thought it would be me. But I always new it would be the Director of the Prison” WTF? And likewise, the two Timelords that voted against Rassilon being turned to satues and not being able to look at anybody, that seemed to be very much RTD saying “…And this is what the Weeping Angels are.” Cunt. That’s almost sabotage.

    So in my mind Steven Moffat is entitled to take anything not previous laid down in his stories and say, “Fuck that.” Obviously some things have got to be sacorsant, but I can’t see too many viewers upset if they don’t have to google Blinovitch.

    I can never get in the groove of their albums, but they produce great tracks. ‘If You’re Wondering If I Want You To (I Want You To)’ was one of the best tracks of last year, but I just can’t take Raditude as a whole to heart. Same with the Blue Album (Heresy!…)

    I suppose one of the reasons that the quality of Who dropped off in the 80s was that it wasn’t seen as a prestigious position anymore, hence the lack of qualified/ quality writers. Fast forward 20 years and a whole new generation of writers who grew up on the series have revived the show’s fortunes. Do you think this points the way for future Red Dwarf?- looking around just this forum there are numerous writers who are in this position, and when you have people such as Duncan Jones coming out and citing Dwarf’s influence the parallels are there.

    Or is Dwarf still considered too cult? Would Doug be open to this? Why am I asking while all you fuckers are asleep?

    I’d agree with your assessment of Tsunami- to me its grown on repeated listening of the album, and probably because I listened to IYTT and You Stole… so much at the time they were released (I don’t tend to listen to HB, Everything… or TISMT as much these days for the same reasons). If you had to leave me with one Manics album though it would be Generation Terrorists- it’s an excellent ‘baseline’ of what i consider the Manic’s sound to be.

    Out of the five recent albums, only Know Your Enemy really fails for me- Lifeblood is passable, This Is My Truth was the album got me hooked so I have a personal bias towards it. I thought SATT was a real return to their traditional sound, especially the guitars. I haven’t really developed any feelings towards Journal yet- I consider it more of a historical odity, like Lipstick Traces. I know it was recorded as a new album, but with archived material.

    Is there any point in judging the sound of a forthcoming album on the basis of a lead single?

    And hey, I stand by my original comment- I guess Danodin will have no objections anyhow, since you have a a atated preference for Holy Bible/ Journal rather than ‘commercial’ Manics.

    Well, I hate to be the first nay-sayer, but I was severely doubting the potential of this tour. An entertainer who has presented nothing of note for over 20 years with chronicled health and financial problems announces a huge string of tour dates with a lot of doubt over his physical capacity to meet the demands, I think the big question was how many will he make rather than how spectacular will they be. Given the choice between risking my money on Axl Rose of Michael Jackson, I have to say I’d have gone for a GnR show…

    Yes, he did change the face of music, and I really hope he’ll be remembered for that rather than the later circus of his life. Hopefully he can RIP

    It makes sense- afterall, we do know that in all the dimensions encountered by the original Ace, he never met another Rimmer who was as cowardly and weasely as the version encountered upon Red Dwarf, therefore it would make perfect sense for Rimmer to stuff up being Ace, return to his original dimension and ‘seduce’ (for want of a better word) his rebuilt version into taking on the role.

    But to fill in the massive gap between Series VIII and BtE, how did it happen? My original thought that Ace could have showed up at the end of OtGD and convinced Rimmer that becoming Ace was better than staying on the ship getting eaten by the virus, but that leaves the plothole that the original Rimmer was trapped in a mirror universe away from the rest of the crew- but then so was the rebuilt Rimmer!

    Maybe someone has already formulated a theory to cover this and I’ve just not been reading closely enough…

    Guys, get a sense of perspective. G&T is well respected not just because of the immense knowledge of RD to be found here, but also becaue of the perspective of its users- which first and foremost seperates it from the official site forum.

    The idea of a whole lot of seperate groups across the internet pooling their knowledge of RD in seperate wikis just to prove something to… Well help me out there? If anyone wants to look up a wiki article on RD you know very well that they will be heading to another website for that data. OK, there maybe users there that don’t appreciate the level of potential there is for RD related articles, but its a lot more constructive than setting up your own site 300,000,000 years into cyberspace.

    >The thing is, that SFX article actually has quotes from Robert and Danny. They definitely said what people are saying they said, I?m sure of that much at least.

    Has it occured to you that all quotes on the internet may be coming from the one source? Little Smegger admits to posting the same stuff on three websites, so why shouldn’t wiki/SFX have a shared author? Whilst I don’t doubt that these talks are ongoing, it doesn’t seem that these quotes were the main feature of the convention. I’m guessing they were probably off the cuff comments whilst the cast were mingling.

    Seems very strange to me- the only evidence seems to be a rumour added to wikipedia by an anonymous IP. I wouldn’t expect anyone on here to support an unofficial convention, and whilst I know posters* on the OS support it its unlikely GNP would let them break the news there.

    So the final place to check for coroborating evidence would be on the organisers forum, which is the strangest place yet. The first post in this thread seems to support the rumour, but everyone wants to disect the event and its organisation rather than anything related to Red Dwarf. I guess its like going to see Liverpool v Chelsea and then analysing the toilet facilities and queues in the car park afterwards. http://showmastersonline.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=50721&st=0

    I expect there will be a new series though- I’m just bitter cos I’m in Australia and we haven’t even had a tv screening yet, let alone the DVD.

    If Holly hadn’t been a head, and just a voice, then he/she would have still been a key crew member when they left the ship, since a voice is easier to transport than a physical entity. Therefore, Norm killed off his own character.

    Congratulashions! You’ve just found the best gl0d stars post on the itnernet!

    An insider tipped me off to The Goldstars, veterans of the Chicago rock and roll scene who apparently got together as friends to simply play the music they loved. What brought them together was a mutual affection for the golden age of primitive rock n? roll as they worshiped the holy trinity of the Farfisa organ, the fuzzed-out guitar, and the wailing voices of American kids trying to sound like British kids trying to sound black.Chicago isn?t a foo-foo veggie burger eating town, Chicago loves the steak AND the sizzle, yet the Windy City has been starving for a meat-and-potatoes rock and roll band amongst the post-rock, punk, power pop and alt-country factions. The Goldstars are just the ticket. Sal is an ideal frontman, his white blues shout, his bass often held aloft, his mop of hair shaking, there is no doubt as to his sweaty commitment. To his right, Skipper mans the keyboards, which he has festooned with gold tinsel. Skipper frequently serves as the emcee, sometimes takes over the bass chores, but his keyboard contributions give every Goldstar tune the right amount of zip. To Sal?s left, filling in on guitar, stands Dag. This guitar virtuoso razzles and dazzles while pumping out the basic chords or concisely slicing up the crowd with a solo. Maintaining control while somehow still adding to the frenzy is the drummer, Goodtime. A band can?t truly rock without a great drummer and The Goldstars truly rock, so that gives you an idea of Goodtime?s skills. He not just the beat of the band, he?s the heart. The electricity of the Goldstars is no surprise when you study their pedigrees. Goodtime and Skipper are both members of Chicago?s most beloved party rock and roll band, The New Duncan Imperials, who have been entertaining thousands with their white trash sounds for years. Dag was last seen playing with Poi Dog Pondering & The Greenwoods. And Sal was hiding his (Gold)star qualities as the drummer for power pop titans, The Krinkles. The Goldstars are a four-man fun factory, tight as a drum, yet relaxed as can be, showing why the sounds of yesterday are worth playing today. The Goldstars recognize that a great song is a great song, and the only way to rock seriously is by not taking rock and roll too seriously.

    GOLDSTAR FUN FACTS! 1. Latest CD “Purple Girlfriend” was included on the following “Best Of” lists for 2006: Chicagoist.com, WFMU’s Three Chord Monte show, WORT’s Leopard Print Lounge show, WITR’s Whole Lotta Shakin’ show, WLUW’s Di from the Razor & Di Show, WMBR’s Aural Fixation show, WRTC’s Rock And Roll Pest Control show.2. Both albums “Gotta Get Out! ” & “Purple Girlfriend” made Chicago Sun-Times music critic Jim Derogatis?s top album list of 2003 & 20063. Supported many high profile acts such as: The Dirtbombs, Supersuckers, Los Straitjackets, Dick Dale, Mojo Nixon, Shadows Of Knight, The Romantics, Neanderthals, Sylvan Sylvan (New York Dolls), Blowfly, Plasticland, Hoodoo Gurus, Southern Culture On The Skids, The Paybacks, Andre Williams, The Horrors, Dash Rip Rock and more.4.

    I’ve followed this one with interest- in all the interviews and commentaries there are never explicit examples of the animosity, although my guess is that Craig is a wind-up merchant and Chris is altogether more straight-laiced and serious. I’m guessing at the beginning this put them on the wrong foot with each other personally (Craig has admitted to being hungover through most of the first three series), but Rob and Doug used that to develop the characters (I think you see a lot of the actors in the characters).

    As for particular examples of hostility, the only two I can recall are just Craig getting up Chris’s flared nostrils- the soaking and jibes during Dimension Jump, and sending Chris’s horse into flight during Gunmen. I wonder if this was the incident that put Chris off coming back for Series VII?

    ‘Red Dwarf Actor Not Guilty Of Non-Custodial Crime After All”- Hardly a newspaper shifting headline is it? Especially considering the charges didn’t match the alleged crime that was reported anyway. The only reason this is getting any coverage at all is the return of RD generating interest- hence the slew of single sentance [sic] headlines about the RD cast (ok, mainly Craig Charles…)
