Sad news. I wouldn't have got through my design A-level without the influence of DR, and I'm sure that's true of many other ex students of a certain age!

Season 5 starts tonight stateside, so will be freely available from messrs Bit & Torrent tomorrow morning. Sky have it from Sunday @9pm. C4 lost the rights to Lost altogether when Sky bought it and threw a mid-season hissy-fit.

Now... can I wait 4 days?

Messy Crimpsmash everyone. May you all receive tons of lovely prezzies, eat your own body weight in tasty things, and may your offspring all receive things that keep them happy and quiet for the whole day. Me, I'm going to figure out how to make an exploding pudding.
Xmas love, Tanky x

So, Amazon or ebay, y reckon? ;)
Thanks for your help chaps. I'll be honest, I didn't understand any of the software/hardware stuff, but having checked out a few 60G PS3 prices*, I think we'll be getting a 360 in the new year

*seriously, don't these people know there's a recession on?!

We're having the same conundrum at Chateau Tanky right now. If anyone can help with the following, I'd be much less confused!

1. Is it still possible to get a backwards compatible PS3 in the UK? If so, which one is it and how much?
2. Does anyone have any idea whether final fantasy is going cross-platform or staying on the playstation only? I see square have a couple xbox titles out, but I've felt let down by their non FF games before!
3. Why are there wildly differently priced 360s about? What's the difference?
4. Did anyone figure out whether a 360 can be plugged into my existing router or do you have to shell out for another?

Ahh, this old chestnut again!
Wise meme once say...
The difference between people with tattoos and people without? People with tattoos don't care if you don't have any.

This isn't something I say very often, but damn, I have to see that opera!
Did anyone catch 'Damon and Jamie's Excellent Adventure' on the beeb a while back? It's about their trip to China to get the thing made and is well worth a watch if it's still on the website/ youtube etc. The klaxaphone is truly something to behold!

On the subject of Rage Against The Machine, I wish I could remember who completely ruined "Killing In The Name Of" by pointing out that you can sing "Fuck you, I won't tidy my bedroom" to the chorus.
see also 'got a cute little tortoise'

or is that just me? :?

If you are DJ'ing a classic Rock night then groups like RATM and NOFX shouldnt be used, if you are DJ'ing a night of classic rock tracks thats differenet

Y'know what Just Might Work? Bill it however you like and play to who you see. Play the above if there are lots of people there who grew up in the 90s. Play their requests and listen to them when they talk to you about music or argue about definitions. Be nice, make time for people, be prepared for punters with tastes different from your own. Ask them what they would prefer to hear. If a random chav asks for some 'hardcore innit', stick some Napalm Death on, that'll soon shift him. Take advantage of the free booze, in case of musical emergency, play Back in Black. In case of toilet/cigarette based emergency, play Metallica (any will do, it's all half an hour long). And above all
