    Bass player wanted

    Land Lovers (my band) needs a bass player. Listen to us here. We'd like someone talented, enthusiastic, reliable, etc. Of course. Being able and willing to sing harmonies is highly desirable. In our dreams, it would also be nice to have someone who can play a few other things and would like to...

    The White Ribbon

    I saw this last night. Enjoyed it a lot. Thinking about it now, it seems less intersting to say that it foreshadows Nazism and what not. In fact, it seems kind of clichéd. But it was fascinating at the time. How do you do that spoiler thing?

    Land Lovers, Sleep Thieves, yeh deadlies @ The Twisted Pepper

    LAND LOVERS That's us. Pop music, a bit of a 1979-81 Elvis Costello thing at times, some catchy bits and loud choruses and middle eights and what-not. SLEEP THIEVES Sleep Thieves bridge the gap between quirky-indie and dancey-electro. According to Analogue Magazine Sleep Thieves “create music...

    Is it wrong that I love this new level of absolute advertising obnoxiousness from Harvey Norman? It's defintely some form of self-loathing. I don't deserve anything other than WOW! Harvey WOW! and I love to be told it by Harvey. WOW!!!

    The Five Find-Outers

    The best mystery-solving gang of home counties kids on summer break from boarding school in literature, bar none. THe Mystery of the Spiteful Letters was probably my favourite, but I might need to refresh my memory. The one where Fatty dresses as Napoleon is great too.

    The Thaoiseach

    Almost all news readers insert a 'h' into Taoiseach, pronouncing it 'Thee-shock'. Why do they do this? It seems completely incorrect to me but I'm afraid to scoff in case there is some RTE directive to pronounce the word like this at the behest of Gaelgoirs who know better than me, a B2 Leaving...
