CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR Polished Surgical Steel Gothic Cross Dropper Huggie Earring (Silver)
Offered by Silverliningz
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 13 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks quite nice; slightly gothic but not overly so.

I got mine in the silver look, reflects the light nicely and just the right size, neither too big nor small.

Its easy to fasten too, nothing fiddly at all - you don't have to twist it or anything, it just opens easily and snaps firmly shut.

Should point out that the cross itself is NOT detachable at all

4.0 out of 5 stars Even animals have out of body experiences!!, 13 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit too complicated in places and I'm not sure if I dare attempt astral projection either!!

BUT... there was plenty of information on the astral planes and particularly what happens to the astral body/consciousness after death (basically as many other's say you sort of carry on as you were - you don't suddenly become all enlightened!) I really enjoyed the information that animals frequently astral project during their lives, as we do, mainly during sleep but they are also present after death

Is it all real?? Well, who knows?! The brain maybe is just playing an elaborate trick but there is some evidence to suggest an objective reality and that we are more than just our physical body and the brains we possess. I believe the author is sincere and credulous in this case and his work is supported by other similar explorers such as Jurgen Ziewe & William Buhlman.

I would recommend their books especially and also suggest the genuinely open minded try Victor Zammit's excellent website; he's a little eccentric but the site is highly evidential when it comes to the survival of consciousness after death

5.0 out of 5 stars Get This...And The Lewis Trilogy, 13 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Runaway (Paperback)
Another stunner!!

Love this author's writing and his sense of characters is second to none. Very atmospheric too.

Really enjoyed the two separate time frames and the way they intertwined - some great suspense and in the early stages almost the feel of a road movie.

Nearly up there with the Lewis trilogy

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent series so far, 28 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Shetland: Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Ok, still only 2 episodes in (one complete story) but already it's as good as previous seasons. The photography seems even better than ever before and the island even more expansive and yet still claustrophobic, if that's possible. It proves that the UK still can match the frosty delights of all things Scandinavian. Some of the shots are just awe inspiring and I never realised until now just how bloody big those ferries are!

Douglas Henshall has really established himself now and the supporting characters are all such a good fit (and easy on the eye in the case of Alison O Donnell and the excellently maturing Julie Graham). Forgive me, but if the lady reviewers can have their say on the merits of Poldark then what is good for the goose is definitely good for this gander!

Anyway this makes up for the long ago demise of Wycliffe (well worth a reboot) and it fills the gap until the return of Kenneth Branagh's Wallander later in 2016 (just checked on Wikipedia that its back later this year!)

A couple of quite gruesome deaths here so far; especially if you don't like heights and ESPECIALLY confined spaces. Every one I know that saw this, says this particular demise seriously creeped them out

I'll just recommend Peter May's Lewis Trilogy; similar locale ie Scottish islands & a similar bleak tone - I heartily recommend all three books to fans of Shetland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series and if you like it check out the Lewis Man trilogy (books) by Peter May, 28 Jan. 2016
Shetland - what can you say; bleak, atmospheric, dark at times and best of all its not Scandinavian either!!!

Absolute gem of a series, stunning scenery and photography, genuinely breathtaking at times.

Great characters, plots, locales and as a bonus there's two of the hottest women around in Julie Graham & Alison O Donnell.

Reminds me of another favourite of mine, Wycliffe, similarly bleak & rugged locale.

I'll just recommend Peter May's Lewis Man trilogy; similar locale ie Scottish islands & a similar tone - I heartily recommend all three books to fans of Shetland


The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band
The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band
by Tommy Lee
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.08

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, all here, the girls, drugs, guns, rock n roll ..and the phone receiver too!, 28 Jan. 2016
Excellent book, exposes all the excess but still leaves room for the music (some of it was actually decent).

Some shocking stuff like the young lady and .ahem..the phone receiver - brings a new meaning to stick it where the sun don't shine!!

Always liked the Crue, saw them live in 89 at their peak and still got a soft spot for them today. As things stand they played their final show 31/12/15, saw some on Youtube and they are showing their ages now. Still a couple of good albums, some more average but far superior than the wanabes that followed like Poison or the pop rock of Bon Jovi. Tommy Lee is still pound for pound one of the best hard rock drummers around.

Just hoping that the much mooted movie of this finally gets made!

5.0 out of 5 stars Less Sci Fi BUT I think this will appeal greatly to Quatermass fans - atmosphere & nostalgia.., 28 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant movie!! Very atmospheric and despite its age, very suspenseful!!

The scenes of deserted London are eerie, doom filled and were clearly a forerunner to things like Day Of The Triffids & 28 Days Later.

There's a real sense of nostalgia, of a bygone age; indeed some of the residents of the soon to be evacuated streets could be straight out of Call The Midwife!!!!

Although only quasi science fiction, this is something that will appeal to anyone who enjoyed the Quatermass movies and other british black & white classics such as X The Unknown and The Day The Earth Caught Fire

3.0 out of 5 stars Some small gripes about the book itself but overall some nuggets in there too, 28 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another interesting book for my post death library; a little more spiritual and less science inclined than some of the other books that Ive read these past 12 months. Nothing too ott and some interesting personal anecdotes from the author but nothing to convince the more sceptical either, unlike say the books of Chris Carter, David Fontana, John T Mennella or Craig Hogan which will challenge the hard hats. Or Cyrus Kirkpatrick's breathtakingly good Understanding Life after Death.

This is one for people who already believe (or like myself are at least open to possibility)

One thing was the book looks and feels a little low budget, quite a few of the pages, perhaps even half were of a much fainter print that would be a struggle for those with poorer eyesight. I struggled a bit but I guess I just didn't want the hassle of returning and then awaiting a new copy. maybe the faint print was just a one off but the book still feels a little cheap in construction.

Overall worth reading but perhaps better at a cheaper price mind


How Black Was Our Sabbath: An Unauthorised View From The Crew
How Black Was Our Sabbath: An Unauthorised View From The Crew
by Dave Tangye
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Alright but would have liked a little more on the actual music..., 28 Jan. 2016
It was okay but I would have liked a little more focus on the music, the creative process etc

Much of what was described is surprisingly banal; better to go for Motley Crue's The Dirt is you want some real excess!

Oh, and it only covers up to the end of the Ozzy era - just a brief lippservice to the Dio years and the story afterwards - shame really as there was still good, if not classic, music long after the lovable buffoon left!

3.0 out of 5 stars Another good book but once again there are better ones available, 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It isn't the best book on this out there, really its too short at 168 pages to cover everything BUT I do feel other reviewers are a bit too harsh.
It wasn't as evidential as some of the other books are but still some interesting stuff on things like remote viewing which support the idea of consciousness separate from the body. There's some interesting personal anecdotes from the author and as someone who has known reliable people who have had paranormal experiences , I am prepared to lend it credence. The down side is not enough info on the actual post death experience and environment itself

Really its ok but youre better with the books of David Fontana, Julia Assante or Cyrus Kirkpatrick amongst others. They're more evidential, cover more of the different strands and actually provide more on what the nature of the afterlife is
