5.0 out of 5 stars Shine a light!, 14 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took my wife to see this show in Vegas for her 40th, so am very happy to see it now available on Blu-ray.

It's a great show and full of classic hits

1.0 out of 5 stars Obvious why it is so cheap, 6 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So the point of this is to "blast" the pipe clean, well on the second good push the chamber cracked open...

5.0 out of 5 stars How wide? Very Wide!!!, 6 Sept. 2010
Having used the Sigma 10-20mm on my previous cropped sensors (D200 and D300) I was gutted it was not 100% compatible with my full frame D700 (anything less than 14mm and you could see the barrel and lens hood) The 10-20mm was my favourite travel and fun lens (it was permanently on the camera on a 3 week trip to America), so I knew that going full frame would eventually mean getting a full frame wide angle....

I hired the Nikon 14-24, which is a beautiful lens to use, but it is heavy and also quite big, not to mention it's expensive!!

So did a lot of looking around at reviews and photos (on flickr) from people using this Sigma 12-24, everything looking positive

So on Friday afternoon I ordered the lens from Digital-4-U as they were £75 cheaper than warehouseexpress and also offered next day delivery, I was a bit concerned when Amazon's confirmation said delivery said 6-21 days expected delivery, BUT at 8am Saturday morning the postman was at the door with the lens... THEY WERE RIGHT WITH THE NEXT DAY DELIVERY!!!

Great lens, great delivery service

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy reading, bad grammar, 23 Sept. 2009
This review is from: It's Cold Outside (Paperback)
This is a nice easy book to read, on holiday or just before bed.....

You are left wondering if there is a sub plot in the numerous occasions of bad grammer and the odd occasion where the character's names are wrong (Gary instead of Guy is a good example towards the end of the book)

On a good note though, it pretty funny in places - Justin's comment at being nominated was a laugh out loud moment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Try it for yourself......, 18 Dec. 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Bought this for my wife as a Christmas present, I had to buy myself a PS3 at the same time to play it on (but that's a different story!)

The drums are of surprisingly good quality and build, a LOT better than the Rock Band kit - you do have a bit of fear about hitting them too hard and occasionally your timing goes to wack which can be a little frustrating. Ignore the "I've been a drummer for 78 years" comments, it's a game - if the kit was of professional grade you would be paying a lot more!

The guitar is a great improvement on the previous GH models

And a bonus it that the instruments are wireless.

I can see us playing this a lot over Christmas - great game, great value

4.0 out of 5 stars Takes a few listens but well worth it, 4 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Antidepressant (Audio CD)
It's been a while since Lloyd Cole released a solo CD and you can tell that all his solo acoustic tours have an impact on this disk. On the first listen there are a lot of similarities to "Music in a Foreign Language"

Track 11 "Rolodex Incident" is by far the most instantly appealing on the first listen - very haunting sound to it.

Personally I think "Dont get wierd on me babe" is still his best solo CD!
