Excellent seller with fabulous customer service skills! I couldn't be happier with the product, price and service. lots of communcation to buyer via telephone and email to ensure you get exactly what you want, superfast postage and sublime packaging. Do not hesitate. Brilliant!!!

Product is of excellent quality, I got the 10" x 8" version which is perfect. I had it engraved in Welsh for my nephew's christening and my sister and brother in law were really touched and so happy with it too. Don't hesitate, this is the one you want!

5.0 out of 5 stars My mate comes to stay and he wee's the bed., 21 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As I said above, my mate sleeps over when he's too drunk to drive (considerate) but he's peed the bed a few times, and the couch and I once caught him emptying his bladder into my fridge (inconsiderate)...I had to throw half of the food away.

Anyway, his wife has just left him so now he drinks even more and stays over a lot more often. I make him wear these, he doesn't mind though I did take his picture when he was in a near-coma and put it on facebook, come to think of it maybe this contributed to his wife leaving him? She must have thought he was a right perv! ha ha

Anyway, he drinks like there's no tomorow when he's on a bender and he must wee out about a gallon in his sleep, but so far so good, no leakage so far. When he takes them off the weight of a nappy must weigh about a stone, such is the amount of cold urine contained within. He has a shower and all is good. My new sofa is very relieved as is the matress. Excellent stuff!!!!

Yup, as I said above, all you could ever want in a sticker that is yellow and has a silhouete of a camera and some words. You get 5 too, so that's even more cameras and words. Magic stuff indeed!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this a Joke...on us?!, 5 Nov 2011
This review is from: Lulu (Audio CD)
What? What? What is this?!!!!

This is nothing but self indulgent tripe that serves only to boost already-stratospheric egos into further flung areas of pompous narcissistic frontiers.

It sounds like a bunch of rich, past-it, has-been musicians just banging away for a laugh. A couple of songs sound like an old man moaning at his mule while some other blokes are building a shed in the background. It's just noise, plain and simple, but really bad noise....some kind of white noise that would not sound out of place in Guantanamo bay,being blasted out whilst some poor dude in an orange jumpsuit has to confess to trying to blow up the Pentagon, when all along he was herding goats.
It's not arty or avante garde, it's plain and simple AWFUL.

Thankfully I was given a copy of this soon-to-be-double-coaster set by a friend, as he thought it was the worst thing he'd aquired since he got gonhorrea... though that affliction is curable. This pile of sewer-filth will rot your soul.

Boom, Bang, whooooooooa...yeahhhh, twang, boom, whooooa, boom boom boomboom....waaaarrrrrrgh - These are my best bits of it.

This is the worst thing ever put on record.

I swear, at best, it sounds like a soundcheck - a rubbish one at that, and Lou Reed sounds like he's just been promised a billion dollar cheque if he manages to moan his way through the worst ensemble of lyrics you could ever comprehend. It would be laughable if it was not so tragic. These crooks want you to pay for this!!!

Right Metallica, you've had it from me. You've released nothing but bantha fodder now for 25 years, I'm done with you. Your talent died with Cliff Burton, who will be turning in his grave after this. Lou Reed? Well.... what have you done in the last 30 years?

So, a bunch of losers doing what they do best...SUCK!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply - The Very Best acting performance I've ever seen!, 20 Aug 2011
This review is from: Ladybird, Ladybird [DVD] (DVD)
Fantastic Film!

Althought this story is almost too sad too watch at times, I assure you that you'll watch it to the very bitter end.

In a nutshell it's about Maggie, who has her children taken away from her by the social services. You see both sides of the argument here as to why this happens and the consequences it brings on the Mother, played by Chrissy Rock, who I believe gives THE most astounding performance I've ever seen. I couldn't hold back my tears as you witness her poor heart being torn to pieces time and again, and the mental-meltdown and the emotional ever-deepening chasm that engulfs her world and very being. There are scenes that are so harrowing, all made the more unbearable as you hear poor Maggie scream as her already-battered soul takes a further physical and emotional kicking

There are other fine performances too, more notably by the character who plays Jorge, a gentle Latin American refugee, who may yet be the great redemeer for Maggie?

A gritty, raw and brutal drama, tragicaly based on true events.

Hollywood couldn't make this film, and nor would you want them too. This is Ken Loach territory through and through. Unbelievably good.

Price: 16.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, honest, no frills dirty Rock n' Roll at it's best!, 26 Mar 2011
This review is from: Redemption (Audio CD)
This is a GREAT album! Not a week track here and an amazing return to form for a band who has been in the wilderness for the best part of 20 years almost.
If you like your music honest, clean and untampered with by modern technology and sampled blah blah blah then this is for you.
Production wise the sound is crisp and powerful and very well done, and is probably a kind of AC/DCish in comparison, even though I do admit that this is a lazy comparison by myself, though I want as many people as possible to be able to access this awesome record.

If I was to compare the sound and style/genre I would say there are obvious AC/DC comparisons that can be made, though it is essentially a powerful Blues-Rock record and although I have mentioned the 'DC in this, I feel there is a huge amount of Rolling Stones here, the riffing is especially Stones-esque, though the Stones can't claim to have done anything this good in nearly 40 years, nor can AC/DC really, not since Back in Black anyway back in '80.

The singing style in kind of gravelly and loose, this isn't Whitesnake nor does it want to be, so although the singing is very competent, it is also appropriate, as it does not take away emphasis on the rather splendid musicianship of the others.

This is just one of those records that come along once-in-a-while that forms a very close relationship with your stereo in that they become inseperable and form a near perfect monogamous marriage that lasts a very long time indeed.

A great record that merits 5 stars, and a contender for album of the year already. I'm going to see these guys in December at the Hard Rock Hell V festival where I find it impossible to believe that they won't make new friends and fans alike.

Just buy it and have a go at me later if you think I'm wrong, though I don't expect you will!

1.0 out of 5 stars About as funny as being told you smell like your grannie..., 13 Jan 2010
This review is from: The Parody Album (Audio CD)
Oh dear, Oh dear!
This man is just about as talentless as they come...he's as funny as a Phil Jupitus/David Walliams stand up show.
Having said that, he's managed to keep on to his job and make some incredible piles of cash in the process for a while now, so I'll give him that.
But... he's just a foul mouthed, uncouth lout at best, he's fortunate to have a good production team behind him on radio 1, or he would have withered and died an eternity ago.
These 'songs' might be mildly amusing if your 12, but he's no Billy Connolly or Weird Al, not even close, and he does believe he has a good voice. He confuses talent for 'loud' and he is as amusing as a new-found lump on your nether-regions.
Don't encourage him, or if you must - try a song or two on you-tube, and there's no way you'll want to buy this then.
Go away Fatty Moyles, you're just a pain in the bottom.

5.0 out of 5 stars LET THERE BE RAWWWK!!!, 1 Oct 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sennheiser... I hate you.
I hate you.
I hate you.
Because nothing in my life can ever compare, or be as good, as that moment i first listened to my beloved AC/DC through these 'cans'.
Or Maiden, Lizzy, Metallica etc...
My 34 life, now and forever, have.... peaked.
Sniff... quite sad really.
I believed I had led quite a life fulfilled thus far.
I was WRONG.
Some say they see happiness and love in the eyes of their children, others see it in each sunrise, when mother nature paints the heavens in beautiful shades of red and crimson, to awaken us from our slumber and dreams, whilst other folk are ecstatic at god's own house, praying for all our sins and wishing us all good health and a passport through the pearly gates come judgement day.
These are the losers without sennheiser HD595's!!!
Well I've got a set, and I'll tell you, 'Perfection Incarnate' is how they need be described, yeah... simple as.
I've bought loads of headphones, some good, some not so. i love music, but the 595's love music more. I've tried a vast variation of genres, and the 595's spank 'em all.
They have such respect for each and every instument , voice, effect etc. They can be as brutal as a kick in the bajoingazz, and as delicate as, er... snow, or something... how about '..a snowflake on a
rose petal?' No? well you do better then, see if i care!
Anyway...yeah, here's something that needs to be cleared up, as I did not pick up on it the 595's are attached to a 3m cable, that is attached to a 6.5mm jack [the big one] BUT you also get a 3.5mm connector [i pod size connector etc] so happy happy days there like.
Ok so far?!
You may have read about sound leakage? this is true. But, erm.. too bad. It's because of the 'open design' which is why they are ridiculously comfy, and don't make your ears hot and sweaty, and as a result you dont get ears that feel like a mars-bar-left-on-the-dashboard-of-your-
car-in-July syndrome. My mate Igor had to have his ears amputated for this cruel condition...not really.
I dont even know anyone called igor, I'm from Wales, not the Kremlin.
What else can I say?... oh yeah, leakage, they do leak, quite a bit, I'm not bothered, hence the 5 star rating, but it's not too bad, I mean, it's quieter for your neighbours and family than blasting a boom box, so let them thank you for buying it in the first place. Having said that I no longer listen or speak to my wife as she get's in the way of my music, I grunted at her this morning when she left for work, i think she shouted something about "...putting the pork in at 5 " but at the same time Jimmy Page pulled a killer riff on 'Kashmir' so I'm not really sure, I can't find any pork anyway, so I don't know what she was on about.
Ermm... Price wise... Phenomenal value. your life will never be the same. What price is happiness, inner-fulfillment and content ? Eh??? That's the question.... about 97, that's how much. As for me, I haven't been this happy since i made that awesome sandcastle when I was 28, or that time I broke wind from both ends at EXACTLY THE SAME TIME at my sister's wedding. It did make my mum cry though, she's never loved me.
Ok, I'm off. buy these, they are simply the best. Better than all the rest. Better than anyone. Anyone I ever met. I love you, Jon xxx

5.0 out of 5 stars THE quintessential Alice album? ...... maybe!, 28 Mar 2003
This review is from: Love It To Death (Audio CD)
9 songs,thats all.9 songs,and believe you me,this is one baby where you DONT feel short-changed.Alice's live set still contains the loads off this album,can you just for one second imagine a MR Cooper gig without the inclusion of the coming-of-age teenage angst and confusion that is 'I'm eighteen'? or the haunting,paranoid,schitzophrenic apocalypse of 'Ballad Of Dwight Fry'?(best ever Alice Cooper song?) what if he didnt play 'Is It My Body?' well here they are,along with 6 others,including 'Caught In A Dream'(this song somehow reeks of summer and good times!)and the bizzare 'Black Ju Ju'.The way 'Second Coming,'Ballad...'and 'Sun Arise'(a Rolf Harris cover...i kid you not!!!)all fade in and out of each other is my impression of musical nirvana,its just heaven!Alice fans,just take a listen.The whale-like swooping guitars,the mood,the experimental and weird noises,all combined with lyrics that could shame William Wordsworth caught swimming in a sewer of his own discontent...oh what a joy!Let it break down your musical barriers,listen to somthing different.They do say variety is the spice of life m'lady!!!! This in my opinion is the first PROPPER Alice record,true,there were some attempts prior to this album,but they were very sorry affairs,and hugely unlistenable. Its here where you get THAT Alice sound(its only here that they discovered it!)it's raw,but these musicians must have graduated from the rock n' roll high school with distinction.They're young,talented,desperate and due to the content at times,er...pretty sick individuals,all in equal parts. To be honest it was pretty bleak before this! There are no weak links here.Every song screams genius and originality,and no one (even after 32 years!)has come close,to equalling it.There are other classic Alice albums,but you see they're genius in their own right,and altogether different encounters.Only with 'Welcome To My Nightmare' and 'Love It To Death' could i be entertained in a 'what is Alice Cooper's greatest album?' argument,and i'll tell ya....there's not much in it!
