5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly melodic, 15 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Lumiere (Audio CD)
Being a Sinead o'Connor fan, I have her 'Collabrations' CD and on that album she duets with Damien Dempsey on the wonderful 'It's all good' - I'm now a big Damien Dempsey fan :)
Consequently DD teamed up LUMIERE on the hauntingly beautiful 'The West's Awake'. {See the brilliant video on YouTube} This song sends shivers up my spine.

The lovely ladies really are truly gifted singers.I can't recommend this album highly enough: Grand on the ears and you can also improve your history too by listening to the lyrics.
Fair play to LUMIERE, on producing an incredible album together.

5.0 out of 5 stars REAL History, 6 July 2011
An excellent account of what happened to a US ship, in 1967 (during the famous 6-day war).
Almost all the facts are backed-up with documents & photos. I bought a copy for an friend who now lives in Israel!
Incredible story. Well written too.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wanna be like Icke :-), 22 Sept. 2010
Having read 4 of his previous books I have to say this IS his best so far. Jam packed FULL of info. Could easily have been 2 books: you certainly get excellent value for money.
If you don't have any of Icke's books then this is an great starting point.
It's not beach-book but it'll wake you up!

1.0 out of 5 stars The BOOK was brilliant, 14 Mar. 2010
Having read the brilliant book by Eric Schlosser, I was REALLY looking forward to seeing it myself & showing it my teenage children too.
I was deeply disappointed.
It's not a documentary but a VERY low-budget melodrama which abruptly comes to an (a loose) end.

No one mentions that a lot of it is actually spoken in Mexican (with English subtitles) as it's main characters are Mexican immigrants coming over the border. Yes, interesting but not the focus I was looking for: Like in the book.

I'm an ardent Anti-Burger-Man but even if you CAN get a cheap copy, I honestly would NOT waste my time watching it (again)
BTW this is NOT suitable for youngsters either. Pity :-(

1.0 out of 5 stars Bush Propaganda, 26 Dec. 2009
A bitter disappointment. An American friend bought me this as she wanted me to see both sides of the story. I didn't actually watch it to the end, I must admit, it was too awful and obviously anti-anything Michael Moore said. A waste of time & money.

1.0 out of 5 stars What the Bleep - Rabbit hole, 19 Oct. 2009
I paid good money for these discs - The first one is simply a rip-off of The Secret with more technical jargon and a (no offence!) a deaf & dumb woman who is (sorry!) very hard to understand when she's trying to speak!

The second disc is padded out CONSIDERABLY with clips from the first disc.
A great message but I feel tricked :-(

5.0 out of 5 stars Vladimir Putin!, 15 July 2009
I certainly think MOST Brits wouldn't know who Alexander Putin was. The Russian PM is "Vladimir" Putin :-)
