Bought blind Primevera Porto tickets today. Anyone been before?
I know nothing about it, but want to go to Portugal soon and at 70 quid a pop you can't go too far wrong.

Really wanna visit Porto.

Whens that festival?

That's good to hear, Dwayne.
If you do go, I really hope we see each other from afar, make brief eye contact and then spend the rest of the festival worrying that we may end up beside each other and have to make awkard conversation.

No you're right. The clue is in the name. You need freesat set up for the UK channels

Ah I see, didn't say anything like that in the instructions, was wondering why I couldn't tune them in

I'm kinda of envious of that list of consoles. Though I'd never make time to play em all.

Never played the Dreamcast.

Always coveted a Neo Geo when I was a kid.

This chap's setup is pretty impressive/nerdy

That's class, I'd love to know someone who had that set-up. I'd rather it not be me though, for coolness purposes. Was playing my Sega Megadrive with some mates only a week ago. 20 years and still the same controllers too!



Bought earphones.

I've almost the exact same model as those, if there's a little button on the mic on yours double-pressing it skips to the next song on Spotify or whatever, v. handy.

Got 10 driving lessons today with the 6 month Aviva coverage thing, time to get a move on. Gonna just book my test for 10 weeks from now and blitz it.
