5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous!, 24 Dec 2007
i first read this after surfing round the internet and bought it on some recommendations from various online journals. I have now finished reading it for the fifth time.
the quotes are one of a kind, the detail into the drug trips are A-Class and you can almost feel that you are sat in the same room as Raoul Duke as he trips on various drugs.
God bless Hunter S Thompson for sticking it to the masses with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars the most amazing album, 17 Sep 2005
This review is from: Push the Button (Audio CD)
i've never really been a big fan of the Chemical Brothers but the second i heard the opening sounds of 'Galvanize' i was hooked. The next day i marched straight out and bought every other Chemical Brothers CD that existed.
'Galvanize' has got to be one of the best songs on the album featuring one time big rapper Q-Tip who nails the lyrical content on the head perfectly.
One of my favourites is 'Close Your Eyes' featuring the Magic Numbers who i had previously not heard of until this song.
Also, 'Shake Break Bounce' is a chilled out, slow groove song that is so catchy once it starts going you cant help but want to dance around to it.
Then of course there is 'Believe' featuring Bloc Party's Kele, who's haunting voice floats over the hard bass line. (believe i blew my speakers out listening to this song...)
I recommend this album... i cannot actually physically live without it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hard Day's Night, 9 May 2005
i saw this film in my Film Studies class when studying the 60's it makes you realise how down to earth the guys are and how funny the film actually is.
John's humour is definitely a reflection of the anti-pompousity attitude that seemed to affect people of that time.
Ringo is a sweetheart in this film being the 'underappreciated' one but actually realising people need him more than he thinks
Paul is overly theatrical throughout the film but because its Paul is forgivable
And George, the ever present dark horse seems to thoroughly enjoy every scene hes in
you can definitely see the closeness of the Beatles throughout the film. and the scene in the park is great because you see the true personalities of them come out.
brilliant film by Richard Lester.
