Because this forum needed a place where posters can bash each other, post videos and share their drunk form behind the keyboard. Too much y0 momma talk in the other threads. Please sticky this whoever is managing this forum.

To kick it off:

I can drink any alcohol you put in front of me, and you Northerners call us Londoners 'softies'.

I just saw this weird Korean movie called Castaway on the Moon. At the start you see a man [Kim Seung-Keun] being told of how much debt he has to pay off, and on the phone he states that this is confirmation of his situation. Then the camera changes perspective and you realise he's standing on the edge of a bridge! He jumps but after all it's a failed suicide attempt. He eventually winds up marooned away from the hustle and bustle of the urban area on a small deserted island.

His life in the wilderness is pretty ****ed up. Sometimes he would endeavor in various ways to feed himself, and other times in his isolation he would go crazy at the people who to him were ignoring him, etc. There were a lot of scenes which amused me but in this first part when his character dominated, I couldn't connect to him and I felt my enthusiasm waning.

That is until the introduction of Kim Jung-Yeon who is a recluse. The scenes with her provide a strong contrast, her living inside her darkened room, lightened only by the glare of the monitor as she surfs the 'net. I could identify with her fragility and her appreciation of the Moon's beauty, and her thoughts of it - no one is on the Moon, so she is spared feelings of loneliness.

She likes taking photos of the Moon but one day when guiding her camera she happened to notice an engraving in the sand that Kim had left on the little island.

The exploration of a very unique relationship, you can say. Has some neat ideas but also uneven in places. Towards the end I felt emotional enough though to prove I cared about the characters.

City will be gunning for four trophies during the 2011/12 season and here are some dates that you need to make a note of for the three knock-out competitions Roberto Mancini’s are involved in.

The Blues will enter the Carling Cup at the third round stage this season due to Champions League qualification. That means just five wins away from another Wembley final – the dates for this year’s Carling Cup are:

Round 3: 21 September

Round 4: 26 October

Round 5: 30 November

Semi-final, first leg: 11 January

Semi-final, second leg: 25 January

Final: 26 February

The Champions League group stages begin in September and it would take 12 games to reach the final in Munich next May. The draw takes place on 25 August in Monaco and the games are played on either a Tuesday or Wednesday with the key dates being:

Matchday 1: 13–14 September 2011

Matchday 2: 27–28 September 2011

Matchday 3: 18–19 October 2011

Matchday 4: 1–2 November 2011

Matchday 5: 22–23 November 2011

Matchday 6: 6–7 December 2011

The Round of 16, quarter-finals and semi-finals are played over two legs and the final will be on 19 May at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Interestingly, all six of the Blues' group stage matches are followed by away Premier League fixtures - three in the north-west and three in London!

City begin their defence of the FA Cup on 7 January and will hope the quest ends at Wembley on 5 May. The dates for the 2011/12 competition are:

FA Cup third round: 7 January

FA Cup fourth round: 28 January

FA Cup fifth round: 18 February

FA Cup sixth round: 17 March

FA Cup semi-final: 14 April

FA Cup Final: 5 May
