3.0 out of 5 stars don't believe in what you see...., 14 April 2014

The cup is lovely, but you don't get the saucer as shown in the diagram. My own fault for not reading the small print, but why not just take a picture of the cup on its own if that's all you're selling...

5.0 out of 5 stars tri-colour quality, 14 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
what a lovely pen. it's got a "weight" about it that's a real sign of quality. the nib writes beautifully and writes with the small ink cartridges. it's a nice size too and fits snugly into your pocket. a lovely little pen

2.0 out of 5 stars lose a star if you're not a fan, 14 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost Sirens (Audio CD)
It's very adequate at best. I'm a New Order fan, but even I have to admit that this is a pretty poor collection. Some it is New Order by numbers and there are very few hooks. Hellbent is the best track by far and the rest are very unmemorable.

3.0 out of 5 stars no spoilers, I promise!, 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Archangel (Blake's 7) (Hardcover)
This is the second new Blake's 7 book and the second I've read in a day. It's a simple enough read, with a linear plot. Like the first book, you can imagine it fitting in to the time period it's meant to be part of (in this case season 2). The characters are generally true to their TV counterparts, but some are given little to do. Jenna is hardly used and Vila just whines a lot though, showing little of the craftiness from the show. Avon is spot on and Blake is too, although he shouts a lot more than he did on television. Servalan is only in it in the last third, but she is well written and you can imagine her saying the lines she's given.
The plot is good up to the last quarter where is becomes rather preposterous when Servalan's real reason for doing what she is doing is revealed. It then turns into Night of the Living Dead unfortunately before a smart-arse last chapter.
It's an adequate enough book, and fans will enjoy reading new adventures with their heroes, but there is room for improvement.

5.0 out of 5 stars one that works!, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I go to the gym a lot and I got sick of:
a) having to watch Living TV or other such rubbish, or,
b) having the woman behind the desk look at me as if I'd just asked her to help me move house when I'd ask her to change the channel for me.

After trying a few different mini remote controls, I was thoroughly delighted when this little baby worked!

Easy to use, nice design and more importantly, it works!!

5.0 out of 5 stars best notepads ever!, 8 Mar. 2012

I'm a teacher and the pupils love a message on these notepads. They are of a decent size, good quality paper and the design is brilliant! They may look pricey, but you get loads per pack. Thoroughly recommend them.

4.0 out of 5 stars "we....found.....and...destroyed....the....enemy", 13 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've always had a soft spot for Day of the Daleks. Their first outing in colour and espite their only being three of them, they come across pretty well. They are at their conquering, devious best. They are happy to reduce an entire planet's population to dust or to the level of rats and then loot the place for everything they can find under the ground. Although, what Daleks would do with gold is beyond me. They then employ the heavy mob to do their dirty work! And their delight at finding the Doctor and having him in their power is a real delight!

Rarely in Doctor Who has the idea of changing history been used and although it's a fairly simple idea (it's a kids show you know!) it's a good one. The Unit family are all present and correct and the Doctor and Jo are at the top of their game.

Yes, there are faults, but they are far outweighed by the positive points.

Pour a glass of wine, have some cheese, muse about Napoleon and sit back and relax!

5.0 out of 5 stars why no follow up?!?!, 30 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Handwriting (Audio CD)
my word! what an album. from time to time an album completely blows you away by it's sheer musical force.
it's complex, densely produced and brimming with ideas, but it really is a work of beauty.

such achingly beautiful tracks, sparsely sung.

4 years on, i still adore this album. perfect music to relax to in the Sun.

Khonnor has done other bits and bobs, under other names and released an EP, but why not a full-length follow up!

3.0 out of 5 stars typically slick, but running out of ideas...?, 13 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 4 (Audio CD)
The sixth album from The Bamboos is just as you'd expect, slick, funky, wah-wah guitar and a sprinkling of guest vocalists. Whilst there's nothing 'wrong' with the album at all, there is a slight feeling that we've been here before. Every song could have fitted onto the last album, or for that matter any of the previous albums.
There is nothing wrong with the album at all, and the opening four tracks are as strong as anything they've done, but after that they slip into routine, when they should be stretching their sound and trying something new.
Maybe instead of releasing an album every single year they should take some time out to try to move their sound on and try something to stretch themselves musically.
