  1. A happy new year to one and all. I'm having Christmas dinner today because I was working over the festivities. I'm glad to see the forum is still thriving. Drunk again Mark? Tut Tut.
  2. Affordable watches ! Order now at:


  3. I don't really care. I'm much more concerned about Barnseleeee :ph34r: . Still. It's been worth watching MOTD just to see Man. U. disintergrating :D .
  4. Sad indeed. I managed to see The Four Tops a few times and they always managed to put on a good "cabaret". "Reach out, I'll be there" is in my top twenty singles. What a manly voice!
  5. On looking at the original ad I would have expected the watch to be working, but maybe need a service to make it a reliable "wearer". I would have probably gone down the the same path as you Alas.. One lives and learns and then forgets. This situation needed bringing to our attention though so we can judge for ourselves.
  6. I do, that was great. Just been "you tubing" Brenton Woods and George McCrae Space - Magic Fly Remember this euro hit from 1977 Mark? The genius that is Giorgio Moroder.
  7. I don't know what the deer represent Paul. They seem to be associated with the concepts of "procreation" or "fecundity". My brain is not in gear today. Laibach are Slovenian - not Slovakian. Here's their versions of "Life is Life" and "ATU". Both better than the originals IMO. The use of extreme right and left imagery can disturb some people but I think they subvert both systems.
  8. Laibach - Gebert Einer Nation My favourite from Slovakia's finest. Anybody identify the watch?
  9. Hello Ian, my little tyke, do you want me to pm some pics? Yes please Mark. Three pounds of your best black pudding .
  10. Nice to see some hot lycra short action on the forum ..........and it would be Mark wouldn't it .
  11. A good site. Thanks. Like Mark, I used to get ready for a Friday night listening to "Out on the floor." Dean Parrish - I'm on my way, Hoagy Lands - The next in line and R. Dean Taylor - There's a ghost in my house were also fanourites.
  12. Watches made from what must be one of the rarest materials on Earth - metal from the hull of the Titanic - are going on sale for up to £75,000. Salvaged by divers from the wreck of the liner - which lies 12,500ft under the North Atlantic where it sank after hitting an iceberg in 1912 with the loss of 1,500 lives - the metal has been blended with modern shipbuilding steel to make the casing of the timepieces. Coal which was to have been burned in the Titanic's furnaces and which was also recovered from the seabed has been mixed with ceramics to create black dials for the watches. A Swiss jeweller is making the watches, which will be marketed under the name Titanic-DNA in a limited run of 2,012 - a reference to the 100th anniversary of the disaster in five years' time. Some of the models have been given a unique rusted appearance using oxidisation techniques at a laboratory in Switzerland. The watches, which have been criticised as being in bad taste by Titanic enthusiasts, feature hands inspired by the liner's anchor and the small seconds dial is designed to look like the pressure gauges on the ship's boiler. Yvan Arpa, chief executive of Geneva-based Romain Jerome which is making the watches, said: "We wanted to make a watch that had history and this is the rarest, most historical metal we could get hold of. The idea came to me when I visited a friend and he had a piece of the Berlin Wall on his mantelpiece. I wanted to incorporate that idea of owning history into a watch. "This watch will give people the chance to carry a piece of history on their wrist." The watches range in price from £4,500 to £75,000 depending on the other main material used in their construction - steel, silver or gold with diamonds.
