I'm a reet nosey bastid, so if you get some new clothes, electronics, books, toys, games whatever, post a link/photo/description or something and let's have a look.  I might want one too.

 

 

I've just ordered a  new book and can't wait to receive it, looks immense.  I've ignored my guitar for too long and listening to 'How The West Was Won' has inspired me to get pack to doing 2 hours a night.

 

It's just a shame I don't have the drums to have a go at Moby Dick.

Got a new pair on shoes/boots, mix of both.  Merrell Continium, first non-Nike shoes I've had since about 10.  Bit sad, but who cares.  It's good though as Nike shoes aren't worth the money people waste on them, these are worth it as they're clearly outdoor, all weather boots, or whatever they're calling them.  Proper comfy.  :D

Also got Robert Fisk's book, The Great War For Civilization (The Conquest of the Middle East)

bluelaugh.gif Trust you to have one, eh! Well, I did my research and there are toy harmonicas and proper musical ones - I'm sure you must be able to make it sound nice if you practice etc.

 

You can get this little accessory (that hooks up to your computer/laptop via USB) that allows you to watch TV on your computer/laptop (and not just terrestrial either :D) - it only costs £60/70. It's useful for all uni-goers/cheapskates/students who don't want to pay a TV License too. I'll dig up a link for y'all when I get the time. :)

Led Zep are mint like, have you seen 'Almost Famous' NP (I know you're a bit of a movie buff), good film with a class soundtrack.

Aye,  loved Almost Famous.

 

I went off the Zep for a while.  I listened almost exclusively to them non-stop for 3 years at Uni and it was a bit of overkill.  Just listened to them on and off over the years but this week I've had HTWWW on constant repeat.  Jimmy Page and John Bonham are ridiculously good and they're off their head.  I'm of the age that should probably be more into Babyshambles, but as drugged up pissheads go Doherty ain't fit to eat Bonham's shit.

 

It's a shame to see people spunking all over Pink Floyd and the Who at live 8 and their record sales getting a huge boost, when (talented as they were) Led Zeppelin were the best of the lot.

Use www.yousendit.com to show us some of your skill them.

 

I don't believe it's possible for a harmonica to sound good.

 

Even Larry adler sounded shite.
