2015 Moleskine Pocket Weekly Notebook 18 Months So&hellip by Moleskine
7 of 7 people found the following review helpful
This is basically a re-hash of the review I wrote for the Moleskine ’13 - ’14 pocket diary, but as the comments are still relevant & no-one will be reading that review, I’ve put it in again so you can make an informed decision.

" This is the second Moleskine 18 month diary I've had. The size is ideal for carrying in a work bag or my pocket. They're hard wearing (although I keep mine in a leather Saddleback cover) & have enough room to fit stuff in on a day to day basis. I sync it up with an A5 desk diary & the system works for me.

Best Of The Capitol Years 1995-2007 ~ Dandy Warhols
Straight away, I need to point out that I am a big DW fan - have been since about '97. Seen 'em four or five times, including a memorable gig at Nottingham Rock City when the band came out to chat to the few remaining members of the audience & pass out button badges.

The problem is, this album barely scratches the surface of their works. It is a handy place to have (some of) their singles in one place (& the new track), but for me, they have produced much better works than their singles (but that is always going to be a subjective call). What about "Ride", "Lou Weed", "Genius" "Sixteen Minutes" & that's just off the first album!! Why haven't they included anything off the… Read more
