4.0 out of 5 stars dated but interesting, 12 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Johnny Mnemonic [1996] [DVD] (DVD)
The special affects are dated and Keanu Reeves does what he does in every film but it's interesting because of the involvement of William Gibson. Until the long awaited Nuromancer film appears there are few film representations of Gibson's view of the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars vital for historians, 12 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A vital resource for historians and history students. Acts of parliament are referred to by reginal year and this book makes translating that to calendar year easy. Knowing when saints days were in specific years is also very handy.

The introduction and notes are a clear explanation of changes in calendars and dates.

5.0 out of 5 stars one for the fans, 12 Mar 2014
The notes are comprehensive and interesting on the background to the album.
The comments from each band member on each track are illuminating.
I think the Steve Wilson remix makes the guitars a lot clearer and I like it.
Six versions of 'Teacher' is too many.

One for fans and collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars need cruise liner sized speakers to play this properly, 26 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 13 (Audio CD)
To play this CD properly first plug in your cruise liner sized speakers. Set the stereo so that everything is louder than everything else then turn the volume up to 11 out of 10 :-)

Some awesome guitar playing by Tony Iommi.

Vocals from the Prince of Darkness seem to take a little while to get going but it's worth the wait.

Geezer Butler doing a floor shaking job on bass.

The drummers manage to keep up the high standard set by the rest of the band.

Do listen to the lyrics :-)

Several tracks are reminiscent of other Black Sabbath songs so it's a bit like a best of compilation at times.

The Parliament of England, 1559-1581.
by G.R. Elton
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars THE book to get on this topic, 10 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want to understand how parliament worked during the first part of the Elizabethan Era then this is the book to get.

I was surprised to note how much of the passage of a Bill through parliament is still the same today.

The English Parliament was developing rapidly during this time so this is an important time in this history of parliament.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent review of modern research, 10 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
if you are seriously interested in the 16/17 century witchcraft trials then you should get this book. It contains articles by all the major researchers and the second edition brings the book up to date with articles from the current century.

The articles cover a wide range of topics.. This is a book which takes a while to read but is well worth the time. The bibliography is very useful for further research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits well, looks good, 10 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case fits the Slate7 well with all the buttons available. I've not found a use for the handle but think some people may.

The bullet stylus worked but seems pointless and I've stopped using it. I guess it keeps the fingerprints off the screen.

by Gregory Durston
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars an up to date review from a legal perspective, 11 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book covers the witchcraft trials in England. Although it concentrates more on the legal aspects of the trials it does look at the wider perspective.

If you are interested in this topic in history then this book is up to date with the latest research and is a very useful overview.

5.0 out of 5 stars a cost effective overview, 4 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you buy this to fill a few gaps in your collection or a varied compilation for the car it's well worth the money. This collection shows the wide variety of music that was around back then from punk to electro dance to ska.

5.0 out of 5 stars a major advancement for civilisation, 12 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lavazza Qualita Rossa is my favourite coffee. I buy others to try but always return to the well balanced taste of this coffee. It an excellent compromise between strength and taste with just the right amount of caffeine.

Being able to order Lavazza Qualita Rossa beans on a repeat order is a major advance to civilisation and should be celebrated widely.
