I sticky tape half a crown to the tone arm, even though I don't need to. Just to get that worn stylus sound I grew up with. High fidelity is overrated anyway. When I was young, kids didn't go to concerts for clear crisp dolby sound, we went to have our eardrums ruptured. If your ears were still ringing 2 days later, that was a good show :o

I agree in terms of sound fidelity guys. I just mean for convenience. A little box that can hold 12,000 songs as opposed to 2 tons of records and a player having to be lugged round must be a good thing lol I also rip all my vinyl to mp3 with the crackle still on it as clean digital sound doesn't bother me either.

lol I get your point and I use my phone mp3. But there is something beautiful about vinyl at home. I still have 78s which I play and im only 31.

Who needs 12,000 songs in their back pocket? That's not convenience, that's gluttony! A cheesy little overpriced device manufactured in overseas sweatshops where working conditions are so bad employees commit suicide on a regular basis. Yeah, let's all go out and purchase a widget. A wotsit. Don't matter what it is where it came from or what it represents, just get one. Everybody else has one.

Same here. I feel no need to be a techno-whore just because most of the rest of the world is. It is 2012 however

I didn't mean to offend anyone, apologies if my comments seemed a bit strong.
I'd only hoped to encourage thinking about this mad cycle of dashing out to unload fistfuls of cash for the newest electronic toy that'll be obsolete within months. Or weeks. Planned obsolescence is the very foundation of the industry, it's absurd.

This is getting out of hand. It's claimed that Leonard Rossiter was in the area and although not the abuser somehow becomes a target of the media not the said disgusting abuser who still hasn't been brought to justice whilst the victim suffers mental torture . As usual media/press rumourmongers stirring up bad press for an innocent man dead for nearly 30yrs who's unable to defend himself. Sad really. :roll:

I've only seen the first 3 series of "Rising Damp" and Kubrick's "Barry Lyndon" :)


Absolute brilliant TV show!

It makes you wonder why they even bother to investigate people who have been dead for so long and can never be brought to trial. Maybe they hope the Doctor will drop in one day and use the TARDIS to transport the evidence back to the past where it can still be used to get a conviction.
I thought we'd nick a wreath off one of the graves as we went in.
