The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack
The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack
by Nicholas Gurewitch
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous and Brilliant, 13 Sept. 2011
Just received this book for my birthday and needed to say that it is simply gorgeous.

The quality of the paper, production, covers reflects the quality of the artwork contained within. This book was obviously a work of love for all involved.

You may have already seen most of the cartoons online, but there is no substitute for the sumptuous reproduction of the print versions.

I rate this book alongside Larson's 'The Complete Farside' even if it is nowhere near as voluminous.

Love it!

I bought Davros for my girlfriend's Dalek collection.

He is really detailed and makes an excellent centrepiece. Obviously he has been designed by a mega Dr Who fan.

Even the remote matches his stark design.

4.0 out of 5 stars THis is the One, 1 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you need a fan that can deal with exceptional circumstances and won't let you down, this is the one.

I have installed numerous third party and OEM fans and this is the one I keep coming back to.

Plus points: Properly set up, it delivers excellent cooling with little noise; I have not yet had one fail; it comes with silver paste in the box.

On the down side: It is a huge fan and retrofitting will mean disassembling your entire rig. It requires careful setting up and testing before screwing the lid back on.

Finally, check those dimensions before purchasing - many cases and CPU cowls prevent a fan this large being fitted.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Album That Keeps on Giving, 1 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crane Wife (Audio CD)
This album is still one of my most listened to after three years on my iPod and car stereo.

The complexity of the music and masterful production keep revealing new aspects, nuances and dimensions that continue to draw me in.

Yes I am a big prog rock fan, but The Crane Wife is both more modern and more folk based - A nice contradiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Trekkie Must Have, 28 Mar. 2010
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for a friend who is crazy about Star Trek and was always going o about wanting a communicator.

She loves it and says it is true to the original communicator as could be, so don't be afraid to buy it for the obsessed Trekkie in your life with no fear of upsetting their sensibilities.

Needless to say this one will appeal to adult fans probably more than kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Atmospheric, 28 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because we were still talking about the sound track weeks after seeing the film. It really is part of the 'A Single Man' experience.

A very well produced and arranged album that stands up well even beyond the film. It tracks the same time line as the film and so conjurers wonderful atmospheres without being repetitive.

A truly atmospheric sound track that makes great listening in its own right.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Ground up Introduction, 26 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an in depth, instructional manual that describes most vehicle electrical systems from base principles.
The writing style is very clear, though some of the pictures are difficult to interpret.

Unfortunately, some of the information needs updating. The published date is 2006, but the text occasionally refers to the 1990's in the future tense and some of the illustrations are not relevant to modern vehicles. Statements such as 'All batteries need regular maintenance, topping up with de-ionised water' may have been true in 1981.

That said, ECU's, common rail diesel engines, glow plugs and engine management are well covered and include vital post 2005 information.

Knowing very little about vehicle maintenance, I have learned a lot from this book and have not found a better introduction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value and Toasty, 26 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A double sleeping bag designed for proper camping, rather than indoor use.

This is the best double bag I have found that does not use natural down (which I am allergic to). Synthetic filling is also much better in damp weather and easier to machine wash.

It is a good size, even if you are well over six foot, and warm enough for spring / autumn camping in the UK.

My only criticism is the zip type, they are nylon and non-locking. If you move around a lot in the night they undo and often jam when you try pulling them back up.

Oh. And beware the size. This is a bulky bag and not like many single sleeping-bags that squeeze into a tiny pack. I challenge anyone to pack it to the advertised dimensions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Indeed, 25 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This remastering is of the highest quality and so much better than the original CD release.

This was the age of the 12" remix, and disc two captures the spirit of the truly extended instrumental.

Highly recommended and worthy of the Definitive Edition tag line.

PressIt A4 White CD Label (100)

4.0 out of 5 stars Still the best, 25 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used several makes and have now applied thousands of CD labels and keep coming back to PressIt's more expensive ones.

They print well, peel, place and stick reliably - which makes them unique in my experience.

Down sides - Don't expect perfect finish from a laser printer, the scoring around the labels interferes with the printing drum and occasionally leaves a shadow. The free software (that you need to download) is hopeless and it can be difficult making your own template.

It is worth buying a starter kit with the label application tool - I actually use an old CD spool, but it isn't as accurate as a purpose designed applicator.
