Jailing the Johnston Gang: Bringing Serial Murderers to Justice
Jailing the Johnston Gang: Bringing Serial Murderers to Justice
by Bruce E. Mowday
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.60

4.0 out of 5 stars The White Hat View., 13 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On Amazon US the reviews complain about the bias towards the various law enforcement agencies involved in the case and the lack of interviews with gang members, victims/family members etc. I understand somewhat peoples disappointment in this book-it is a very one sided account of an intriguing case of American true crime. The title does give some indication of the books viewpoint though and if reading forewarned the book fulfils its brief.
What this book offers is an accurate but dry account of the case-nothing more. In that it succeeds, I know much more about the events than I did previously but nothing about the perpetrators and the lives they effected. Recommended as a primer only. You will have to research the net to find anecdotes from people who where there at the time. Plenty can be found if you have the time and dig deep enough.
The definitive book on the Johnston clan has yet to be written. In lieu of this Mowday's book will have to suffice.

The 1986 film At Close Range is an fairly accurate adaption of the case. It has good early performances from both Penn brothers and Christopher Walken gives an effortlessly chilling portrayal of the family patriarch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for the actual show, 9 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One star for the cheap new packaging. The program is one of my favs but this latest release does it no justice. The card slip cases are thin and have warped and bent straight out of the box. The dvds insert into slots in the card which scratches the discs. The first two I removed had scratches. I was going to repack the dvds in plastic dvd cases but the damage has already been done. Can't recommend. Two stars and thats being generous.


The West of Wild Bill Hickok
The West of Wild Bill Hickok
by Joseph G. Rosa
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Wild Bill' Hickok comes to life., 4 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great pictorial companion piece to Joseph Rosa's other exhaustive and authorative works on James Butler 'Wild Bill' Hickok. This book is a large format paperback and the photographs are reproduced to a high standard given the paper used. The book covers the life, family, friends and enemies of Hickok and is an essential purchase for anyone with a serious interest in Hickok and the Old West.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great base cleaner., 4 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pec 12 is very useful at certain applications. In my view its performance as an emulsion cleaner is limited to use on current 35mm colour film. On older film where the chemical composition of the emulsion may have shifted caution is recommended. I would be wary of using it on any slide film emulsion and certainly never use it on Kodachrome emulsion. If in doubt only apply on the smooth base side of the film. Its better to have a print with with some flaws or a scan you can alter in photoshop than a destroyed negative.
I have used it on the base side of 1960s film to remove marks left by condensation on glass mounted slides and it performed very well.
Using a Giottos GTAA1900 Rocket Air Blower - Black then a Matin M-6328 Small Size Goat Hair Dust Brush to remove any loose debris is important. Then spray some of the pec 12 on Photographic Solutions 10x10cm Pec Pad (Pack of 100) as the final part of the cleaning routine.
Use sparingly or it will leave a residue. It is very strong so don't plan to clean a large amount in one go and keep the area well ventilated.

This review is from: Vans Boys Trainers (Shoes)
from a well known brand you can rely on. Fit and construction is excellent all round. Like the last pair of Vans Baxter I expect these to be outgrown and still look almost new. Only minus is again an issue with laces except this time they are way too long. Even with double bowed knots they hang down and drag on the floor. I swapped them out with a pair of black trainer laces and they look fine. Highly recommended.

This review is from: Vans Boys Baxter Trainers (Shoes)
from a well known brand you can rely on. Fit was fine, as expected and the construction of the shoe is excellent. The shoe was outgrown before it fell apart or wore down on the sole. The only minus were the laces-they are very smooth and did not grip and stay tied as a single bow knot. Double bowing solved this but you may want to swap the laces. Still highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Size 1UK. Good quality trainer but, 1 Oct 2014
fit is a tad too large for my child who was measured as 1F at Clarks. Construction is leather and excellent throughout-I would recommend these shoes highly. The last pair went on forever and the child outgrew the shoe before they had the chance to fall apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality baseball cap, 1 Oct 2014
Bought for a child with a head measurement of 51cm, this cap will adjust down to 52cm so is slightly too big but I knew that before I purchased.
Quality is as expected for New Era-solid construction with excellent stitching for the logo.
Go D'backs!

This review is from: Noble England (MP3 Download)
Massive fan of Rik Mayall-teared up a bit when I heard the news of his passing.
But now its time to honor his legacy and spur England on by getting this stiring track to number one tomorrow.
Last chance guys, guys? Guys!?!

Dog Days: Volumes 1 - 2 Omnibus Edition
by Gene Gregorits
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.93

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Classic, 15 May 2014
Its a crime that Gene Gregorits has not found a higher level of recognition with fans of extreme literature.
There is such power here-the words form a bestial muscled behemoth of frenzy and sleaze.
Gregorits drags you by your ankles through a world most either fear or don't even know exists-to produce what is in fact one mans sane clear vision of our skewed reality.
Highly recommended.
