New Music

I've bought a few albums (alba?) recently:

  • I started with a recommendation from Simon Horrell, and purchased the Arctic Monkeys CD. Simon said, "Do yourself a favour - buy it". Well, save your money - you can have mine

  • Next up was Iron Maiden's latest: "A Matter of Life and Death". There are a few really good songs on here. I particularly like "The reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg", and "These colours don't run" and "Different World" aren't bad either.

  • I thought I'd try some of their older stuff too, so bought "The number of the beast" - an album that had them incorrectly labelled as Satanists when it was released. I've only had a quick listen to it - it's a little heavy for me, but there are a couple of songs on there that are OK

  • And finally, Nik Kershaw's latest album arrived in the post today: "You've got to laugh". It's great and you can order it online

    Mac look for a PC

    I've been toying with the idea of buying another toy, this time some form of Mac laptop.

    While I'm deciding what to do, I stumbled across this link to skin Windows XP to look like Tiger.

    1980 Moscow and 1984 Los Angeles 1500m finals

    Found Moscow and L.A. on YouTube

    I'll have to keep an eye out for the 800m as well.

    Lucy learning to fly

    I dug out the simulator I used when I was learning to fly my helicopter, and Lucy has had a go. She seems to have a preference for either a Raptor 30 v1, or an Ultimate Biplane. This appears to be because they both heavily feature the colour pink in their paint jobs...
