Today I listened to my favourite band from my student days, found out their lead singer recorded an album in America some 9 years after the one with this band. No copies on Amazon UK or us...

Checked eBay us, 1 copy, price $1.41, ships from...... United kingdom.

eBay UK, one copy £1, shipping is another £1

For nearly 20 years I have waited for the second album that never got released because parlophone records dropped them, soon hopefully this rare item will be mine

I'll reveal who it is when it arrives, but the name was used by a few bands including a not very well known boy band, the name does not suit the music at all

Today I saw amazing pictures of up my own butt :shock:

Doc was having a look to make sure the blood I was passing was nothing serious. Surprisingly not as uncomfortable as I expected. A bit of inflammation, but nothing to worry too much about. Picture quality off that little camera is quite impressive on the big screen.

Sounds like you should have posted this up in the "What's Your Jobbie?" thread, Antiriad. :lol: Anyway, glad to hear that it isn't anything serious. Please tell that you didn't get a DVD of this? :lol: :D :wink:

Antiriad's idea of a small camera is kind of baffling... but I suppose it's small in comparison to the Hubble Telescope :lol: :lol:

went to the
Image
exhibition today, and it was very good, seeing all the olden days figures and vehicles
i even took some of my own 80's figures up and bragged a bit :mrgreen:

When: 18 March to 29 May
Cost: FREE
Where: Paisley Museum
On March 18th, from a galaxy far, far away comes an absolute must see for fans of Star Wars and the silver screen…

One of the UK's finest collections of vintage Star Wars toys and original cinema posters is going on display in a stunning new exhibition at Paisley Museum.

Back when the movie Star Wars broke box office records in 1977 no one could have predicted that the merchandising would go on to earn even more than the film itself. The toys of Star Wars took the world by storm and became the must-have playthings for an entire generation. From 1977 - 1985 an estimated 300 million action figures were sold, allowing children to re-enact the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo.

May The Toys Be With You is both a celebration of the now highly collectable vintage toy line and also of the iconic design work and art of the Star Wars movies. From X-Wing Fighters to lightsabers, these fantastical designs have fired our imaginations and stamped their place on our cultural landscape. For little kids and ‘big kids’ alike this is an unmissable opportunity to view many rarely seen Star Wars treasures.

With fun activities for all the family you won't want to miss this exciting new exhibition...appearing for the first time in Scotland.
