5.0 out of 5 stars Great music theory books., 17 Aug. 2011
I bought level one.two and three in this series of music theory books by Mark Harrison, and whilst this is a review of the first level book i expect that the other two will be as equally as clear and easy to understand as this. Now i consider myself to be as thick as the proverbial "two short planks" but mark harrisons excellent explaining of the fundamentals made it easy for me to easily understand, i would say though, if like me you're a beginner read this first book at your piano, or keyboard.

1.0 out of 5 stars full of untruths, 6 Dec. 2010
As with all attempts to debunk this book is so disingenuous and is so full of untruths masquerading as facts that you almost feel sorry for the author. The best books written on this subject include "plausible denial" by mark lane which chronicles his legal defense of Victor Marchetti, a former-CIA agent who wrote an article for The Spotlight about the JFK assassination and was sued for defamation by E. Howard Hunt. 'JFK, the cia,vietnam, and the plot to assassinate John F Kennedy' by L Fletcher Prouty. which focuses on the WHY as apposed to the WHO in the assassination of jfk. And finally 'Killzone' by colonel craig roberts. which suggests that the money trust, who had killed previous presidents had both motive and opportunity to carry out the "intervention in dallas" as john mcCane calls it. As bad as this book is i don't think that it's nearly as bad as 4 days in november by vincent bugliosi, in bugliosi we have a guy who still believes that oj simpson murdered nicole brown and her friend ron goldman when All [not just some] of the evidence proves that his son jason is the person that killed his step mother [oj intended to cover up his sons involvement] proving that unless it's in the court documents that bugliosi is completely unwilling or incapable of considering solid evidence, and as we know, the warren commission completely failed or worse, omitted witness testimony and evidence which did not support their pre-determined verdict.

I have read alot of these debunking efforts and they all share one common feature, they all make up their 'facts' from thin air, which is something they share with the federal reserve which likes to create it's money from thin air. then lend it to the US government, something which kennedy was seeking to put an end to like andrew jackson, james garfield, abraham lincoln and william taft before him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Third Season, 28 Oct. 2008
The third season of the wire is as brilliant as the Two that came before it. if you've seen the first two seasons then you must watch this too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most important movie of the nineties., 13 Mar. 2008
This is an excellent movie. Stone has added some 15 plus minutes to the running time and it only enhances the overall piece. The special features disc is great too. When you consider that E howard Hunt, one of the watergate burglars and bay of pigs organizers last year gave on his death bed, a confession into his and the names of his co-conspirators involvement in the assassination of jfk. Hunt along with sturgis are two of the tramps from the now infamous tramp arrest photographs taken from dallas on that day. Herein lies my only criticism of the movie,well not the movie because it does imply a mystery behind these photos. My issue is with stone's commentary in which he says that this piece of the puzzle has been completely explained and that the tramps checked out as just that, tramps. Not so. You can read about the whole thing at [...] or

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice piece., 5 Oct. 2007
The obi wan kenobi lightsaber was, to me at least always the coolest looking hilt in the saga, I have two of the force effects sabers too which are excellently made replicas. But these little ones are cool too. You could always use adobe after effects (video post production software)to make them functional.

5.0 out of 5 stars business as usual., 23 Nov. 2006
Friends of mine have been disapointed by the last couple of seasons of the sopranos because of the lack of a maranzano/castellemare like war between the crime families with the characters hitting the mattresses. but there have been wars in the previous series 5. I personally think the sopranos is as good now as it ever was. It's a show about characters and the characters are so well written and acted in this show.gandolfini and edie falco are superb again in the two main parts. The key to getting the most enjoyment out of this show is not to expect what you've seen movies like goodfellas or casino. This is more godfather than goodfellas in any case. Tony is becoming like a michael corleone figure in the sense that he's become so isolated through his own paranoia and bad behavour. I think that my friends who are disapointed by this season are also going to be disapointed if they're expecting that big gang war in the finale season of this brilliant show, because i think he's gonna die in one of three ways. he's gonna get killed by either camilla, chris or some massive heart attack. i think he'll definately be dead by the end of the show. i hope so anyhow..not sure i could handle seeing him put away by the stinkin' feds...although that is how most of these bosses end their reigns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant second season that's even better than the first!!!, 6 Aug. 2004
I have not been following this on channel 5 simply because i prefer to watch stuff like this in my own time (all at once) it'd be agony waiting a week to see the next episode if i were following it on television. I literally watched it in two 5+ hour sittings. The shield season 2 is easily better than the first. it's got the cliffhanger feeling to it which '24' brings as well as the comedy,drama of The sopranos(The best television show on television in my opinion). just buy it!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars more from this brilliant drama/comedy, 18 Aug. 2003
anyone who thinks this program is about the mafia either hasn't watched it, or hasn't understood what it's trying to do. This could easily be a live version of the simpsons. why ? cause tony is in many ways like homer simpson, meadow is the teen version of lisa, Aj is bart, and carmella, like marj simpson is clearly the boss of tony's 1st family.that's the way i see it. unfortunately nancy marchand, the actress that brilliantly played tony's mother died during season 3 so had to be written out.She was without doubt the second best character in the show.
ok season 4. all i will say is. better than the other three seasons by a mile. and it looks like season 5 IS NOT gonna be the last season. due to david chase writing too much material to close this story in 5. So looks like we're gonna be getting a 6th season with around 10 episodes in it.
