Blood On The Tracks ~ Bob Dylan
Blood On The Tracks ~ Bob Dylan
5.0 out of 5 stars Album title meaning?, 23 Aug 2011
In this perfect song-cycle ('Blood on the Tracks') Dylan articulates what most of us can only vaguely feel. I've listened to it regularly since its release when I was a teenager and always find the songs fresh and relevant.
Something I've wondered is just what the title alludes to. Initially I thought it was blood on the (vinyl) record's tracks. But then, it could be blood spilled while traveling around (in the 'making tracks' sense). Then again, it could be a reference to blood on 'tracks' during intravenous drug use.
Anyroadup, it's a groovy title to an amazing work of genius!
Logitech diNovoEdge Keyboard (discontinued by manu&hellip by Logitech
5.0 out of 5 stars Works with Apple!, 14 Oct 2008
This keyboard works great with my Apple iBook laptop rigged up to my plasma tv screen... I got the impression that it only worked with PC computers, which was fine because I also use a Vaio laptop, but I was delighted to find that it works perfectly with my iBook... in particular using Microsoft Word and Final Draft, as well as all the other Apple applications. I thought folk would want to know this, because Logitech say it only works with PCs.
It's a very cool keyboard - nice key action, etc. Highly recommend.
P.S. Oh yeah, my old iBook isn't Bluetooth, but when I stuck the supplied Bluetooth USB stick in... the keyboard flies like a bird...
Epson Stylus R1800 A3+ Colour Inkjet Photo Printer by Epson
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
I'm a keen amateur photographer and have owned the R1800 for about 3 years now. I've printed on most sizes and types of paper (though not roll paper) and CDs.
Overall I'm very pleased with this printer. It produces sharp, clear prints right to the edges (borderless) with excellent colour reproduction. If you've not printed at A3 before then it's quite a jaw-dropping experience to see such a great picture come out of the printer. All paper finishes seem to work well - I particularly like the colour saturation achieved on matte archival paper.
One word of warning: don't use non-Epson inks!! I tried once and will never do so again. The colours were lousy and they clogged the print… Read more
