    How to breed antisemitism at a young age

    Like a rose tinted view of humanity? - you know full well that in any plebiscite there'll be disagreement. Young kids are impressionable, but think back to when you were a kid - you might've been awkward & questioning but you had the ken? 'Course you did. Some may blame the Jewish kid because that's the shit world we live in . Teaching is a difficult job but you shouldn't have to question a school head's common sense. Common sense after all.

    How to breed antisemitism at a young age

    Kids aren't generally stupid & they'll know that some prissy, clueless killjoy is impressing her own misguided will on 'em. Oh what a silly woman. The same clever kids will have their own descriptions of said headmistress. You can bet that any lingering bad impressions of Christmas won't be due to their Jewish friend but to their stupid headmistress.

    Musical fidelity massive!!!!!

    Ant was clearly a driven man to come up with those little amps. Two fingers to the American 'high end' being his (more eloquently stated) intention.

    Tribute bands.

    Steve Hackett Genesis Revisited - OK not a 'proper' tribute band but they were the dog's nads when I saw them recently. Firth of Fifth & Supper's Ready sent shivers up the spine. Aussie Pink Floyd top entertainment too. The lass's vocal performance on The Great Gig in the Sky was stunning.

    SRM deck spinners

    I still think the Arezzo is one of the best looking decks around & is superbly made. Sounds great too. The only niggle with it is for the acrylic to go a little dull & cloudy despite diligent & regular dusting. Yours looks spanking cris, do you polish it with anything?

    Healthy Britain news story comment

    No more stinky fag smokers in our wonderful boozing houses & equally wonderful working places. Can the exchequer compensate for the reduction in his slow death tax? Tax the vapors - make 'em pay for their past years of being anti-social .

    Pete Shelley The Buzzcocks RIP

    The 'cocks had a lot more about them than many of the Pistols wannabes back then. Smart band. 63 is no age. Sad news.

    Mood of the day

    "Still falls the rain,the veils of darkness shroud the blackened trees, which, contorted by some unseen violence,shed their tired leaves, and bend their boughs toward a gray earth of severed bird wings. Among the grasses, poppies bleed before a gesticulating death, and young rabbits, born dead in traps,stand motionless, as though guarding the silence that surrounds and threatens to engulf all those that would listen. Mute birds, tired of repeating yesterdays terrors,huddle together in the recesses of dark corners, heads turned from the dead, black swan that floats upturned in a small pool in the hollow. There emerges from this pool a faint,sensual mist,that traces its way upwards to caress the feet of the headless martyr's statue whose only achievement was to die too soon,and who couldn't wait to loose. The cataract of darkness forms fully,the long black night begins, yet still by the lake a young girl waits. Unseeing she believes herself unseen, she smiles faintly at the distant tolling bell, and the still falling rain."

    What are you listening to right now?

    Ged's keys on this now sound as dated as The Human League - unlike Al's cosmic guitar.

    What companies, out of Business, did you LOVE???

    The reasonably helpful but probably unintentionally intimidating po-faced bloke in Lintone Audio said the Rega 3 had more 'attack' than the Walker CJ55 turntable. The Rega was on a 1 year waiting list because they were hyped by Popular Hifi so the Walker was bought. How good it was too.

    Cricket thread

    The top order has been fragile for a long time & Jennings has been particularly under judgement. He's been given the chance to prove himself in Sri Lanka & he's currently smiling. Wish the lad the best to consolidate his form & confidence & cement his place. The Ashes are coming up next year & for a fifth consecutive home win a confident top order is handy
