5.0 out of 5 stars Great Female Empowerment Anthem., 7 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roar (MP3 Download)
This is another great song sung by Katy Perry. The song represents a woman who used to nod her head and go with the flow, but who now has the confidence to stand up and say what she wants. There's a great line, "I am a champion and you're going to hear me roar," which is a bit like the early 21st Century equivalent to "I will survive." If you know a bit about Katy Perry's own history, and how she was unceremoniously dumped by her ex-husband, Russell Brand, it seems to give you the feeling that she knows what she's talking about, that she's been knocked down, but has got up stronger for the experience. It's a great female empowerment anthem, but also a great tune, a great song. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Psychedelic at the same time!, 27 Oct 2013

This review is from: Lazy Sunday (Mono) (MP3 Download)
I decided to download this after listening to it again as a soundtrack in my keep-fit class, where they only play about the first verse of it. I've got lots of sixties tracks on various CDs but not this one for some reason. It's a real sixties curiosity, a mix of music-hall humour and psychedelia with Steve Marriott singing it, to start with, in an exaggerated cockney accent. I love the way he rhymes 'neighbours' with 'ravers.' It's a mono-recorded track so all the sound-effects such as the sea and the church-bells are not multi-layered, but it still seems to sum up that wonderful lethargic feeling of relaxing on a Sunday afternoon, and it makes you smile too. What's not to love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solitaire shines., 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was attracted to this item because I have followed Jane Seymour's career over the years, and of course she shot to fame in 1973 in the Bond film Live and Let Die playing the enigmatic tarot-card reading Solitaire. I am not a doll collector at all, but I am not sorry I sent for this item. The figure is posed gracefully and the dress is quite a close copy to the one the actress wears in the film. There is a background picture at the back of the box which sets the figure in context and she is carrying some Tarot cards. I can see this item appealing to several different types of collectors, including collectors of Barbie dolls and James Bond memorabilia, so I think there should be some demand for it. I am sure I will treasure it for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Cat Calendar, 3 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this calendar because I am a cat lover and I could see the photographs were adorable. I personally don't like cat calendars with artificial looking poses, but all these cats look natural and are in the setting of a beautiful garden. The pictures are quite big and there is plenty of room on the calendar to write by the dates if you wish to, plus there is all the information you need about the month on view, such as bank holidays. Each month, we learn the name of the cat in the picture and have a cat inspired quote to read. The lovely pictures are especially nice to look at in the winter months. One of the best, if not the best cat calendar you will come across. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Say Hello to Yesterday, 19 May 2011
Say Hello to Yesterday is the story of a one-day love-affair between a young man determined to escape his drab working-class life, and an older married woman restless in the gilded cage of her middle-class life in the stock-broker belt.
They meet on a train and the young man is instantly intrigued by her prim and proer exterior which obviously hides a more rebellious streak, because she is trying to scratch off a non-smoking sign as she wants to smoke in a first-class non-smoking compartment. He decides she is the challenge, the 'Mount Everest' he wants to conquer, and addresses her as such. She tries to put off his advances and threatens to pull the communication cord, but he does so for her, and from the time they have to make a report to the authorities together, they seem destined to be linked. From then on, he pursues her through London, and despite herself, the woman becomes attracted and intrigued by him.
This title is a little gem of a British film from an often over-looked period, the late sixties and early seventies. It stars the famous actress Jean Simmons, and Leonard Whiting who is best known for his role as Romeo in the 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet.

The director Alvin Rakoff admits in the commentary that the subject matter amounts to 'a souffle', but the film has a lot of charm and captures London at the end of the swinging sixties. The characters are often seen getting on and off the iconic red double-decker buses, there is talk of mini-skirts and when they buy candy-floss it is at the pre-decimalisation price of 6d. The commentary which is by the director, and the film historian Tony Sloman, is very informative. We learn that a passer-by in one street scene is actually the famous actor Rod Steiger who just asked the director if he could have an impromptu extra role. We also learn that the veteran actress Evelyn Laye who plays Jean Simmons's mother, broke her arm during her scene, and had to cover her plaster cast with her fur coat, but carried on acting like the trooper she was.
Jean Simmons subtly conveys the vulnerabiliy of her character and Leonard Whiting is also very good as the young man.
All in all, a very good DVD. I've given it four stars. I would have given it five if it had subtitles.
