5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete History Of Stanhope (with asst. supporting characters), 31 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stanhope's comedy is frequently pretty challenging, with jokes about abortion, babies, transvestite hookers, sex toys, drugs and a whole bunch of stuff someone will take umbrage at - but as an audience you're always aware that the tale has been ramped up for comedic effect and the truth may have been buffed to a shine for your enjoyment. This book in contrast is just straight out honest in its approach, covering Doug's childhood up to the present day and including the important stuff, not just the funny stuff - the marriages on a whim, the arguments, the mental state of Mother and her hoarding, her own acting career, his "hey there guy" father, his Marine brother and their childhood goofs, the whole shebang.

As such, it doesn't read like a Stanhope stand-up routine - but it's very very good, completely engaging, written in a way that's easy to read but with such detail and nuance that you don't want to skim read it. It starts with Mother's death and then goes back to the start and works through chronologically and doesn't pre-introduce anyone - Bingo for example isn't even mentioned (intro excepting) until Doug meets her in the progress of the story. It unfolds as it progresses.

Essentially - if you're a Stanhope fan, if you've been listening for years, you follow the podcasts, all that - you know bits of his history. This is all of it, but the important bits, not just the funny ones. It's well worth the purchase price, order it now.

Used (as one ingredient of a few) for home made record cleaner fluid - Google a recipe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old school goodness!, 24 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Old school felt record cleaner, replete with holes in the top to spang some cleaning fluid in! Handy hint - make your own fluid (distilled water, isopropyl alcohol, and a bit of Kodak water wetter - Google it, there's loads of recipes) and save a mint. Also good in a Disco Anti Stat, btw. This thing picks up the surface dust just as it should. Smart.

Nicely made but very thick, almost too chunky for a lapel. Good on a bag though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good albums bar the Trendkill edit, the slipcase is a chore though, 24 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Five albums on coloured vinyl, plus a 7", plus downloads, all in a box. The albums are pretty enough but one is edited as you'll have seen elsewhere. The 7" is fine. My only real gripe is with the box - it's a slip case, and it's a tight fit - getting all the albums in there without snagging on the inside edge of the cover wrap (where it's wrapped inside, it's lifted a bit and stops the sleeves sliding in) is a faff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine, what more to say?, 24 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a mid/high end graphics card, it runs Fallout 4 on an HD monitor and in a PC with decent CPU/memory without issue, it's quiet enough and the driver updates are no trouble as well. What more to say, really? Works, good value, I'd recommend it.

Nice bit of kit, can take a phone or a proper camera with a screw mount, and opens out into a tripod. Adjustable angle too. Glad I bought it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad news for Bad News, 7 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The various titles offered are a pretty good choice and yes there are the episodes that came after the last box set but the Bad News pair have been edited together - and then subjected to several cuts that ruin the flow and timing of the stories. Really - it's a bloody crime that someone was let loose with a copy of Premiere and told to rip out so many minutes presumably so it would all fit on the disc. Consider the track listing as it is but forget about the Bad News elements because they've been amateurishly butchered, ruining the experience.
Still, it does have Fistful and Mr Jolly too so it's not all doom & gloom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you can't afford a full on steadicam frame!, 27 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely to hold, everything bolts on nice & snug, no worries at all. The natural use of it reduces shake as well, but not as much as a dedicated steadicam with a gimballed head would of course.
