Smoke & Mirrors and Steven Seagal: The Burning Pants of Popular Culture
Smoke & Mirrors and Steven Seagal: The Burning Pants of Popular Culture
Price: £3.48

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth buying, 17 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being a huge Bill Murray fan I especially enjoyed chapter 2, but it was interesting to learn about the crazy stories of James Hydrick and Brian Pullman. The Derek Acorah stuff was hugely entertaining. Well worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was my first e-book purchase and it works well using the kindle ipad app. I really enjoyed this, coming from a small seaside town myself, and loved the way the book was put together. Great observations from the author and some laugh out loud moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Coffee Table Book, 11 Jan. 2013
This review is from: David Bowie Style (Paperback)
I had this book for Christmas and really enjoyed flicking through the photos and reading the background of Bowie's different looks. A great book to read then leave out on the coffee table for guests to flick through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, strange, twisted and sinister - an intriguing read, 9 May 2006
This review is from: Frantic Planet (Paperback)
If you enjoy the more twisted and warped side of humour, you'll love this book. Beginning and ending with a flurry of short stories, you are immediately thrown into the surreal and slightly sinister world of the writer's mind. Filled with tales of small town mentality, twisted people living in everyday (and not so everyday) worlds, robots who fall in love and just plain weirdness the stories are unique and engaging, and you're never sure what is coming next.

But nothing will prepare you for the bonafida page-turning qualities of part two, "Simple Choices" - six chapters which get more and more disturbing as they go along, as a deranged man takes the concept of art terroism too far. Sandwiched between the two sections of short stories, this is the strongest and most captivating section of the book. Thrilling and thought provoking, this is a real highlight.

So if you're after a read which is alightly off-kilter, give this book a go. It won't always be a comfortable ride, but it'll certainly be an enjoyable one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Step Inside, 7 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Neon Golden (Audio CD)
Call myself a music fan?! I had never heard of NoTwist until recentley, the sublime "Pick Up The Phone" entered my head and is now destined never to leave. Perhaps a one-song wonder, I told myself, but no: low and behold a complete album mixing the best bits of pop, electronica and beautifully deadpan vocals. NoTwist have really come up with a gem here, from the slow building One Step Inside, to the immediate out and out pop of Pilot and One With The Freaks. Then there's soaring strings over the cunning loops of Solitaire and even banjo on Trashing Days (it somehow works - dont ask how). In fact this album is such a mix of styles and influences it shouldnt work yet, fantastically, it does. If your looking for something fresh, inovative and catchy this year you have to hear Neon Golden - if you dont I promise you'll missing out on the cleverest pop album around at the moment.
