Disconnect From Desire [VINYL]
Disconnect From Desire [VINYL]

4.0 out of 5 stars Stuck between the moon and New York city, 23 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Their second of what may prove to be four albums from School of seven bells. Slightly better than the Alpinisms work but not as good as number three Ghostory. Tragically illness and departures affected the SVIIB career I hope the Deheza sisters have patched things up now.

Nice enough beginning by Joy Formidable with their CD . A couple of the tracks weren't that memorable but some were very good songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blackberry charging dock, 19 May 2011

Very useful product, It takes all the wear and tear off charging the phone. Without this i'd be concerned that the usb port on the phone would get broken and need replacing. Not sure what the point of the light is but it looks good anyway.

After a year it stopped working, I guess this was a cheap copy from China or similar. I'd avoid this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall a good boot., 27 April 2011
Bought these at the start of the winter and within days was unexpectantly walking around in a foot of snow. They remained dry and importantly warm on my feet throughout.

The boots got tested out in the hills recently , the weathertite III was comfortable but hasn't the feel of a solid rigid boot. There is a degree a of flexibility in the upper as the leather has softened. The sole is strong and gave a good degree of protection from walking over stones.

I found one problem in that the laces and lacing system makes it difficult to tie the laces as tight as you would want. This meant that on downward slopes your foot can slip forward and then impact on your toes. A thicker pair of socks may help but it's not a great solution. Better laces and eyelets would improve this.
However after a day's walk I had no blisters or soreness and that is a positive for these boots.

I'd recommend these boots for medium terrain and most extremes of weather but I wouldn't consider them for 4 seasons use.

4.0 out of 5 stars ION USB Review, 10 Jan. 2011
Bought this as a gift and the recipients were " very happy with the turntable and impressed by it's quality. "

I think the lead to the amplifier could be a foot longer or have the standard connections on it for audio leads.

2.0 out of 5 stars I need a break., 13 Dec. 2010
This review is from: After the Break (Paperback)
After The Break.

I chose this book by Penny to read as the reviews for the first were quite bad and I thought I'd have a better read with this one.

It's a disjointed read with a mix of interesting scenes and recognisable media characters blended with unbelievable scenes, daft dialogue and people so flimsily and hurriedly sketched that they could be invisible. The main character Katie is so irritating at times that nibbling the book would have given me greater pleasure than reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sorbothane Insoles, 27 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sorbothane - Full Strike Insoles - Pair

Well priced, reasonable quality insole. Tried them in two different shoes and each were marginally improved.

The noticeable extra weight is a consideration in running shoes for distances but the extra comfort and support you get - well I could feel the difference in my knees and hips after ! I would definitely buy these again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Past the limit, 4 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I expected this second book to pick up where the first biography Crying With laughter had left off. Perhaps a collection of racier and more litigious stories of the scrapes Bob and his friends and colleagues had gotten themselves into during his eventful career combined with insightful and poignant views of the famous and not so famous he currently knew and had known.

Disappointingly this additional book was more the combined off cuts from the cutting room floor of the first and his day to view diary from the mid 1990s. Details of airports, hotels and venues left me bored while the majority of the anecdotes did not match the touching honesty and laugh out loud quality gags and puns from Crying With Laughter.

I'd expected a tell 'em straight, no punches pulled signing off memoir from this great comedian's life but sadly it's more like a contractual filler.
