How was the bbc coverage?


Brawn 1-2? Both Ferrari’s out? Hamilton disqualified? Trulli penalized? Vettel vs. Kubica? Thoughts? I only saw brief highlights, but the race looked amazing… I’m glad Button finally got a bit of luck.

And on a completely unrelated note, did you know the new coconut records album is called “davy”?

Burn after reading - verdict?


I’ve been keeping up with all the f1 stuff too - I’ve got a funny feeling about this season… everything’s gonna change!


That gretsch looks like an absolute gem - I can’t wait to see it! I saw watchmen last week - I don’t know if I’d recommend it. Some parts were really well done, but… it’s 3 hours long. And it’s unneccessarily violent in a gory kinda way, there’s no turning the camera away when someone gets hacked to pieces, it’s basically like one of the saw films with superheroes. Actually, it’s more like a tarantino/kill bill kind of comic book movie - just tasteless in every way. And the soundtrack is horrific… I could go on. It starts off really well though, it just really trails off halfway through. I was the only one out of all of us who went to see it that didn’t like it though, so I’m probably way off. But I was really bored by the last half hour. On the other hand, I’m gonna bring back a copy of “milk” - best film I’ve seen in ages. Have you seen it? So, are you gonna be working in the old zavvi/new hmv then? Or are you just helping to get everything set up? How’s work and uni going, apart from being busy? Everythings still good here, I’ve been sick since the weekend, there’s some kind of virus going round campus at the moment. So the last weeks been a bit crap, but a part from that all is good. Busy though. I’ve got 25 pages for my first day back, so I’m trying to get as much of that done now as possible to give me more free time at home. Anyway - I gotta go catch a bus into town - talk to you later Chard

Neil young-on the beach

Hey chardy. Sorry for the long overdue reply. I am 21 now and feeling older and frailer by the hour!  Just put a deposit down on a new guitar though! A lovely Gretsch G5122 http://www.soundslive.co.uk/common/showimage.asp?image=/images/GRET-2505812517.jpg check it out! My thoughts on the Morrissey album are that it is amazing! No more to say on the matter.

Been pretty busy lately with work and uni work.  HMV bought the big Zavvi store on Buchanon street so its been pretty mental trying to get that store open on saturday.

Hows things in sunny Portland at the moment? Hear your coming back to us soon? Have you been to see Watchmen yet? I havent. Should i wait and we’ll go see it while your back?

I’m carrying on my Neil Young education. Got “On the Beach” last week and i think it may be my fave. Will post a track from it.

You been keeping up with f1 news? you should be back during the first race!  Ross Braun bought over Honda f1 so they will be racing as Braun f1 from now on with rubens and jenson.  Should be interesting.

Bought, “Burn after reading” this morning so im off to watch that! I will give you my thoughts on it.

God speed
