I read it as never rar, as if you had something against the RAR compression format.

I hadn’t considered that. It’s prophetic, since my father was killed by an overcompressed RAR.

Username:
This is my real life name.
Or: I prefer having an actual name to having a weird word or phrase, so I picked this name because it sounds cool and is from a great movie (but isn’t necessarily a famous enough character name that someone else would have the handle, because I use this on a few different sites).

It’s one I started using for horror movie reviews. It’s my name and a Smiths song mashed together.
It’s also this: ray afraid
I stopped responding to my real name and would only answer to ‘Ray’ when I was 4/5 years old. It’s stuck for 30 more years.

Username
My username’s origin is from a few years back when I was watching some obscure Youtube video where some russian guy called a ghost a “booman”. I think it was because he didn’t know the word for ghost in english so he called it a booman instead. The phrase stuck with me and I ended up using it for my Youtube name. I used it for my OT account too 😃

Sounds excruciatingly hot, but it made for a good picture, so it was worth it in the end.

Don’t sweat it. I often post mundane comments/replies only to think up niftier alternatives much too late.

Have you asked Jay to change it?

I guess I could, but that’s not what everyone here knows me as now.

Tyrphanax I invented many years ago because I had been using names I didn’t come up with up until then and it was a pain trying to find one that wasn’t already taken. Plus I wanted a unique identity for the Internets. The “Phanax” part I derived from old Gothic language and then I added “Tyr” because Phanax needed something else and Tyrannosaurs are cool.

My avatar is Iron Man’s Model 1 Mark III armor, an upgrade from my previous avatar which was the basic Model 1.

There are no titles!

I forget what my signature says, brb…
Oh okay, my signature is a MST3K reference which I felt was fitting for the wild west days of Star Wars preservation. The second part is a TRON quote that ends my messages.

the username - oojason - back in the day I was a N64 GoldenEye nut, so a mixture of that and my actual first name (though had to be ‘oo’ and not ‘00’ as that was just too corny, even for me).

the avatar - is Oddball from Kelly’s Heroes - a reminder not to take life too seriously, to sit back, relax catch some rays and eat some cheese and drink some wine, to work on my dog imitation - and to keep checking ebay for a cheap tank…

the title - I think I was once a Jedi Knight a long time ago, but these titles no longer exist…

the signature - pretty self-explanatory - in 1989 96 people went to watch a game and never came home. Hundreds were injured. Survivors have taken their own lives since - many have been heavily affected by the events of the day and what happened since… In a bid to push away the authorities’ faults and failures on that day they fabricated a story and shifted the blame onto others at the game. Despite evidence to the contrary available at the time - many people believed the authorities, backed by a friendly press and those in Govt - and it took 27 years for the truth to finally come out in a court of law^ - a jury ruled that the people who died were unlawfully killed. Despite the Police and other authorities continuing with their false narrative to this day - and many of them refusing to co-operate with investigations~ ongoing or resigning to avoid punishment - The Truth is finally out there.

More info can be found here - http://hillsborough.independent.gov.uk/

 

^ = The Hillsborough inquests were the longest running in English legal history.

~ = The IPCC Hillsborough investigation is the biggest criminal investigation into police misconduct ever conducted in England and Wales.

In December 2016, Operation Resolve handed over files of evidence relating to 15 suspects to the Crown Prosecution Service who are expected to make charging decisions in the Summer of 2017.

Like many others, I have no faith in the IPCC investigation or Operation Resolve (or the CPS) - though hope to be proved wrong.

 

 

on a lighter note I think I’ll go for a Brian Blessed / Prince Vultan avatar next… after a quick go on GoldenEye…

I hope it was this one (from 2016) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yIAGkOpzSk

This was also decent - by BBCV Panorama back in 2013 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaBnY-SnwxA

and this from ITV back in 2012 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXhjeZ1ri2M

plus this Hillsborough Remembered documentary by The History Channel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h27HzcLK314

Hillsborough: Smears, Survivors & the Search for Truth - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phEblvBPpvo

Hillsborough: anatomy of a disaster, by the Guardian - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMVwG2pqxeA

as well as a raft of others too (not all factual or accurate either).

^ obviously they are all pretty heavy going, harrowing and emotional at times, and am not expecting anyone to watch any or all of them, but it’s good to have a choice of options and possibilities.

 

I won’t post further on it - as it’ll likely take this good thread off topic.

Amazingly enough, it wasn’t any of those. It was this one:

http://www.espn.com/30for30/film?page=hillsborough

I thought it was excellent, although I was completely unfamiliar with it before this, so I can’t speak to its accuracy.

I think that’s the top one listed mate (I should have labelled it clearer) - by Dan Gordon for ESPN’s 30 for 30.

It couldn’t be shown in the UK (officially - cough 😉) whilst the Inquests were ongoing as to no prejudice them, and was eventually shown a couple of years later - with an updated version released in May 2016 - to include additional footage and the verdicts of the Inquests.

 

The whole 30 for 30 series is a cracking watch - I’m not up on US sports but found some of those fascinating, especially the Bets That Never Was, Pony Express, Trojan War, Kings Ransom, Small Potatoes amongst others - as well as The 2 Escobars and Once Were Brothers on a more global scale.

Oh, I clicked on the link and saw this in the title: “Hillsborough (2016) | BBC Documentary HD” So I thought it was a different one.

Love 30 for 30. I watch every single one.

I think some people do that to try and get around the ESPN/youtube copyright overlords/takedowners 😉 (or may have seen it just on the BBC here in the UK, and not aware it was also for the ESPN 30 for 30 series)

Hope they carry on doing the 30 for 30 series - despite being so many 24/7 sports channels available these days it’s quite rare to see quality documentaries like this one.
