Confessions of an Idiot
Confessions of an Idiot
Price: 5.12

5.0 out of 5 stars Confessions of an idiot, or to many people an inspiration., 12 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Douggs has become something of an icon within the Base community and especially to fans and onlookers. I am sure he does not see it that way but I have never heard anyone speak of him with anything other than great respect and admiration.

This book is an honest and real look at Chris' life and how it was changed so much with just one jump from a plane. He is very open about the lunacy of the early years, and infact still sees the idiocy in the things he does now. However he has a very safety first outlook on how he partakes in the sport of his choice nowadays. Douggs makes no excuses for his choices in life and respects the choices of others, if you have never heard of Douggs then this is a great introduction, enjoy it.

Also congratulations to Douggs on his now 3,000th B.a.s.e jump just a month or so ago, an impressive achievement for a self confessed idiot. I look forward to the followup book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't see the need? neither did I., 12 July 2014

I always thought a mouse bungee was a bit of a silly gimmick to go with the rest of the gear gaming companies sell us now, however I like to waste money on gimmicks so I got one.

Well, I have tried playing without it since and do not know how I coped with the mouse lead grabbing the desk, this is perfect. The USB ports are a real bonus compared to your standard bungee and at only a little extra cost. Well built, looks good, not so large it gets in the way.

Great for the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Massive, Hard Wearing, Does the Job., 12 July 2014

Already had a couple of these, in different designs, massive pad for low sensitivity players. Pretty hard wearing. Accurate? Well no less accurate than any other mouse pad.
Lets not get too carried away, at the end of the day a mouse pad is a mouse pad, this does the job perfectly.


Black Books - The Complete Box Set [DVD]
Black Books - The Complete Box Set [DVD]
Dvd ~ Dylan Moran
Offered by NO_LIMITS
Price: 18.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterclass in Comedic Acting., 12 July 2014
So I guess if you are reading this review, you have not yet seen Black Books. Delay no further and buy it.

Dylan Moran's portrayal of Bernard Black a drunken, self loathing, anti social bookshop keeper, is not far short of genius. He owns every scene he is in, even when he has no dialogue he will communicate with his audience with just a facial expression or mannerism that tells you all you need to know. Although the show it's self is very light hearted and in many ways silly, Dylan takes you deep into the inner thoughts and soul of Bernard Black, a character you should perhaps dislike but will infact come to love.

Bill Bailey puts in a solid performance as usual, playing Manny, Bernard's hippy, positive, keen shop assistant come maid, carer, punch bag, general dogsbody. Often being treated cruelly by Bernard but inevitably there love for each other shines through.

Then there is Fran, who owns the shop next door, the third but certainly not least dynamic to the group. She fleets in and out of scenes, life disasters and trying to turn Bernard into a grownup.

The story line is at times shaky however there is much to make you laugh, the dynamic of the group is great and they often close the shops by 11am for lunch (3 bottles of wine).

The show is entertaining, funny and backed up by great performances and you rarely get that from comedies today.

I have given 5 stars as the cloths are as expected, they are not as soft and thick as higher priced more premium cloths. However i'd say they are some of the best I have seen inside this price range. Using for general purposes during car detailing and very pleased. Will definitely buy more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fps Gamer... this is the monitor for you! Or is it?, 12 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well first of all the monitor is fantastic at what is is designed for 120/144hz gaming with super low response time. Motion blur is very low indeed and as long as you get over 120fps then games are super smooth and you will get the benefits of the high response rate.

Straight out of the box the colours really are awful and washed out, and to be honest after trying a lot of different setups listed on forums and playing around myself they are still a little washed out. If they were a little more vibrant and saturated it would be much better.

The monitor stand and adjustments are great, you can change it to most angles and raise and lower it with ease.

So if you are purely in it to gain the advantage in your games, then this is a great monitor. Very crisp picture, no motion blurr and fast response. If you want video and graphical beauty buy something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now You Should See It..., 27 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Now You See Me [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Well where to start with this very original and thought provoking tale of deception and intrigue..

The film carries it's self very well from start to finish, we see 4 street magicians make their way to the top of their profession after they are recruited by a mystery person, they then perform in a Series of large stage shows in which they appear to pull off amazing heists and spread the wealth among their audience. My only disappointment with the story line was that we skip a year from their recruitment and go straight into the shows, there could have been a lot more depth in their progression and training together that we just don't see.
However the story line is intriguing and keeps you gripped right to the very end.

The acting itself is wonderful from the likes of Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, they play their parts very well and the characters are very believable.

I will myself be buying a copy when it is released for my collection and I am sure I will watch it many times, although some things could be improved and there could be more depth in parts of the story line and the characters this is a fantastic watch and I am surprised anyone was didn't enjoy it.

Now You Buy It.
