I got one of those amazon dot thingys for Christmas and haven't really used it properly until now.
Anyway, its fucking good.
if you say 'alexa, play the stranglers' it plays allsorts from the stranglers in no particular order.
Ive just had princess of the streets and now its freedom is insane.
it cheered me up slightly


first time I've been able to listen to the brilliant stranglers since May 3rd.

You can even ask it to play a specific album. E.g. if you say "Alexa play the album Rattus Norvegicus by The Stranglers", it'll do it as long as you've set it up to access your Spotify account or equivalent...

At least you got some gratitude Jim, when we first got it, my wife was pissed and asked 'Alexa, what's a 69?' it replied 'I'd rather not answer that quesstion' then she asked 'Alexa, are you a virgin', to which it replied 'I haven't got a body'
hours of futile fun followed afterwards, but at least it seems to know the stranglers - just had love 30 followed by 5 minutes and it's still going strong.

Fanny flaps are great aren't they. I've not met a cartoonist who doesn't love them. One of the outlawed practices under the anti-FGM legislation is stretching them to make them longer. In some tribes they have to be a certain length before a girl is considered fit for marriage. Of course this is not only painful and potentially unhygienic but hinders daily activities for the woman such as, for example,wearing jeans and riding a bicycle. The Hottentot Venus is possibly the most famous example.
