5.0 out of 5 stars Seminal indie-rock doc finally on DVD, 14 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At long last this (rather frighteningly for this reviewer!) 20 year old documentary is shortly to become available on DVD. Although Sonic Youth are the stars of the show essentially - a very entertainingly chatty Thurston Moore is the main protagonist or driving force throughout - it holds a lot of appeal for fans of early 90s indie-rock in general, some of which was described as "grunge" (before a slew of awful, humourless, copycat bands I wont name here - you know who they are - came along and rendered that a very dirty word).

Featuring what will be of particular fascination for many, is much footage of a pre-icon Kurt Cobain goofing around and chatting with friends, coming across not as the crestfallen and doom-destined caricature the all-too-frequently seen posters and t-shirts peddled since his death portray, but instead as a clearly witty and, at that time anyway, vivacious guy enjoying all the fun of being in a touring rock band.

There are fantastic performances from several bands, including Sonic Youth of course, Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr, Babes In Toyland, and a few others.

A must-see for those that had their musical tastes turned upside down by this wonderful music when it first emerged, and likewise anyone with an interest in the major milestones in rock history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful software and support - AVOID, 31 Jan. 2011
I have used Norton Internet Security 2010 and 2011 and both caused my PC to freeze up any time I had not been actively using it for more than 30 mins (Silent mode really does live up to its name).

Despite having Symantec engineers do all sorts of installs and upgrades by remotely accessing my PC, the problem was never resolved, forcing me to eventually uninstall this , in my opinion, dreadful software and replace it with Kaspersky 2011. And surprise surprise, no problems since!

I will never use Norton again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for Toshiba StorE Art 500GB, 25 Feb. 2010
This case is ideal for the Toshiba StorE art range of 2.5" external drives. It has elasticated straps inside which hold the drive firmly in place, and has a mesh pocket inside for holding the USB cable. Its a high quality and durable little case, just big enough to hold this size of drive without needless bulk. Some other cases are reported to be a tad too big for the latest slim-profile drives such as the Toshiba StorE Art, but this one is just right.
