    Hejsan allesammans!

    I dont know if this have been done before, if it's a possible idea to continue with or considered inappropriate for the forum etc.

    However, I thought it would be an interesting way to provide a wider space for all members on UKMIX, and to different posters unique thoughts or feelings. I'm sure that alot of exciting ideas and unexpected perspectives about stuff that would stimulate certain members doesnt reach them because of the forum being so varied.

    Similar to the "Song of the day?" topic you can here quote other members post that you think are worth more attention and perhaps worth discussing further!

    I guess that about anything could be worth paying a bit more attention to!

    I thought I'd start with the post who gave me the idea to start this fuzzy project (thanks to fercho3), and how egocentric it may seem, I'd like to quote one of my own posts

    Shakira's performance last night was the only thing worth watching!!

    Amazing performer!
    And with a charm (most) American artists doesnt seem to be aware of exists because they always perform with a egocentric and too serious, exaggerated attitude.

    Shakira (and most European artists) is so much more humble while performing. It's so nice watching!
    Simply because I'm usually discussing cultures diverse performing arts with a friend of mine. The American style is often considered the most comercially powerful, professional and perhaps even memorable. Personally I find it to be mostly artificial or non-original in comparison with the European "scene", as I experience it as more down to earth, self-minded or personal and less driven by a script.

    Hmm... I guess that's all. No need to "answer" this, I just wanted to give the thread a little push

    Well I think you've made a fair point, Shakira was indeed full of charm. She comes across very pleasant and loveable, even in a video like Loca which could have come across as egoistic and narcissistic if in the hands of certain artists.

    Let me try... Now I'm not familiar with this poster but I think he/she brings up a point rarely stated but true.

    Hear, hear! A lot of people say "drink more" water, but water isn't entirely harmless. It's dangerous to drink too much, and how do we tell we've drunk too much water, it's impossible, there are no signs like alcohol.

    This is my favourite post EVER:

    - "Memoirs" and "Angel" were capitalised and yet "imperfect" wasn't.
    - The title is slanted slightly.
    - The collage work is disastrous. They couldn't have made it look more superimposed.
    - Her body is completely disfigured and out of proportion. The way her arms connect and the top-heaviness of her body is frightening.
    - You can see clearly where they've simply sliced her waist line in half.
    - Her elbow has a chip in it. An actual piece of her arm was simply cut out due to improfessional photo-shopping.
    - The neckline changes on each Mariah.
    - The shadows of her growing breasts are embarrassing.
    - The "Memoirs" font is from the "Through The Rain" cover. Not that there's anything particularly wrong with repeating fonts. It just felt a bit lazy.
    - It was yet another cover of Mariah simply standing in front of a plain background.
    - There were three Mariahs. This is just personal taste but I absolutely hate covers with this design idea.
    - The shadows on the second picture makes her facial expression appear frightening.
    - Her aroused expression in the third photo is...interesting.
    - Are the 1st and 3rd Mariah's holding hands? Where do their arms disappear to?

    I couldn't possibly hate it any more.

    I suspected that someone would "suggest" this

    My idea, or the purpose, of this thread would be to get a chance to see posts from members who hang out in other parts of the forum than yourself, so that we may see more of what people are discussing.

    Plus, this is a forum, and a "gathering place" for quotes could hopefully start more discussions?

    I'll look and probably answer the other posts in here later

    What do you guys use?

    I have never before heard of how water can affect the body badly, but it seems nothing these days is entirely healthy.

    Very rare, but sometimes too much "liquids" can make the stomach feel out of balance?
    Would I run into scientific results proving how a certain amount of water have negative effects, I would probably reduce it. Until then I continue to follow my "health instructor" Ciara and drink a certain amount of water a day. This is perhaps imagination, but somehow it seems to give more energy to the body?

    //I remember getting told when I was younger to either use toothpaste as well or even better urine because it contains ammoniac :-? never tried any of them though.

    Urine? Now that is an odd enough remedy to actually work. Anyone willing to try and report back?

    Maybe this thread should simply be "favorite post of the day"? That would be more interesting.

    Quite like this idea - it'll encourage people to venture into forums/threads they otherwise wouldn't do and immerse in all sorts of new conversations!

    Exactly For years they said it sold 55-60 million records and from one moment to another BOOM! it sold 110 million It's funny how it sold 50 million many after its original release... maybe they're counting piracy copies too

    I know Skelofect is a fan of this too, but one of my favourite posts of all-time is:

    Quote Originally Posted by BadRapture, in response to the unveiling of Shania Twain's new single title, [url=https://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=26824&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=shania%20twain%20shoes&start=0
    'Shoes'[/url], ]Man she's tacky.

    Hang on a minute, something is wrong here. The title of the song - although typically ridiculous - is not normal Shania-esque.

    * Firstly there's no brackets in the title (you know the ones)
    * Secondly, there are no question marks or exclamation marks in the title. You know what I mean? Good!
    * Lastly, there's no corny reference (man, you know what it's like girl).

    OK, so let's go about making this a proper Shania title.

    That's better

    TRUE!

    I've been fooled by snippets too many times, for example I didnt feel the urge of buying M.I.A.'s latest album because of Born Free and the snippets, altough she's one of my favourite artists, but the previews we're so bad.

    Turns out the whole album, and actually every song, except BF, is Amazing!!!
