4.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality for the price, 2 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Decent enough quality T-shirt for the price. Agree with a lot of other reviewers though - order the next size up from your usual. Shame they don't do a green sleeved one as I'd have bought another. Looking for a cheap but decent T-shirt to take on holiday? Go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Folking good read, 30 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection of English folklore is very comprehensive indeed! It's a massive tome - a way bigger book than I was expecting! The stories/info are fairly short so you can dip in and out when you fancy. The ideal way to digest a read such as this. Fascinating.

3.0 out of 5 stars Title track makes the album, 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 3 stars here are for the title track 'colors' by Ice T. The song is easily the best thing on this soundtrack. The Big Daddy Kane track is worth a listen - if only once, but the rest is pretty skippable really. I bought this for a couple of quid just to get the title track - Ice is rockin'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get the other Ice book, 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ice Opinion (Paperback)
'Ice: A memoir of ganster life and redemption - from South Central to Hollywood' is probably the better Ice T book to read as Ice is 20 odd years older than when he wrote this; his attitude and opinions basically the same but embellished with more life experience, perhaps less expletives and a more acute perception of things - alot has happened since the early '90s. At 34, when 'The Ice Opinion' came out, he gives his (strong) opinions on and shares knowledge of everything from the LA riots, sex, religion, rap and gangs to the justice system, crime & punishment, politics and controversy. All told in Ice's own cool straight-talkin' vernacular. Not sure weather some parts in the 'men, women and sex' and 'religion; one percent nation' sections of the book were intended to be funny but they are! The rest of the book is pretty interesting if, at times, maybe a little hard-going simply because it seems to be written as if it were coming directly and continuously out of Ice's gob. But then it does say "as told to..." on the cover, so there you go. As I say, he does make alot of sense on different subjects and it's a pretty engaging read but his more recent memoir is a much better read in my opinion - although I did notice that sections here and there in each book contain practically the same material. A nice touch with this book, however, is a 'Pimptionary/Glossary' for squares such as myself who might not quite grasp the meaning behind some of Ice's street talk.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad, 24 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fear Of A Black Planet (Audio CD)
I think as far as PE albums go, they reached their peak with 'It Takes A Nation Of Millions...'. There's alot to be said for this album too - with a few real standout tracks (most notably 'Fight The Power') - but it just doesn't seem as focused. The sound is very busy and urgent, which isn't always agreeable, and at times I think it even sounds a bit messy, Chuck D's vocals - though always good - are also a bit hard to make out at points. Still, it's worth owning for the few standout tracks there are and as a less accomplished companion piece to their better previous release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Likeable Geezer, 24 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ice T is probably the greatest Rap artist ever (in my opinion!). This memoir is certainly an interesting read - written in Ice's own speaking style - that is actually quite funny at times and I think it'll engage lovers and casual listeners of Rap alike. I learned alot about Ice - who is a massive fan of rock (his fave bands are Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Blue Oyster Cult - he's got his own thrash/punk/rock band 'Body Count' and he's toured with the likes of D.R.I., Exodus, Slayer, Rollins Band, Metallica among many others...) - and he comes across as a likeable 'down-to-earth' geezer. I thought he had actually done time - turns out he has managed to avoid prison, whereas alot of his homeys haven't. I agree with another reviewer that said Ice has been around and rubbed shoulders with lots of different folk and probably has many, many more stories to tell - you actually get a feeling of this while your reading - so who knows, maybe further memoirs will appear? Anyway, I would recommend this quick, easy and interesting read to anybody who is interested in music in general and how some folk - however unlikely their chances may seem - end up becoming entertainers.

This is a Gildan brand (decent quality) t-shirt with a really good ICE T 'RHYME PAYS' print on the front - exactly as advertised. At a price of £6, I was totally chuffed with such a dope superfly purchase! I've been wearing this for several days now while cold-lounging in my crib. Get one, fool!

4.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated 80s flick, 23 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Johnny Handsome [DVD] (DVD)
Under-rated 80s Rourke flick with fine performances from a good cast. Johhny Handsome is a facially deformed smalltime crook who gets double-crossed on a heist that he planned by two volatile career crims. While in the clink, he is offered the chance of a new face and life by partaking in an experimental surgery programme. With his new boatrace, will he take that chance for a straight life? Or will he use his new unrecognisable mush to trick and destroy the people that set him up? Watch and see! This has the look and feel of an 80s picture which I always like and if, like me, you are a Rourke fan, you should think about checking this one out if you haven't already. Good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Owning, 19 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Straight Outta Compton (Audio CD)
This album contains 3 very good tracks in 'Straight Outta Compton', 'F- The Police' and 'Express Yourself' - and 1 good one in 'Gangsta Gangsta'. The rest of the tracks are OK but pretty skippable really. It's very much of it's time (late 80s) and is worth owning. This edition also contains bonus material and extended versions which might interest completists. Doesn't, in my opinion, compare to THE best Gansta Rap album of all time - 'OG' by Ice T, but is still up there simply because of the afore mentioned tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job!, 30 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This s*** lasts all day! Hardens extremely quickly though so you need to get your application technique down asap! Nice occasional wiff of sandalwood throughout the day so not at all over powering scent-wise. A tad pricey but there you go.
