Thunder – The Xmas Show Live
Nice ones from Andersen Laine Redman, Jack Foster III, Brother Firetribe and the marvelous Flower Kings - The Sum Of No Evil who are back with another feast of prog including a 24 minute epic and 3 13 minute tunes. All the great prog bands are here but it’s still very much a Flower Kings album.

Best best of CD purchased
The Babys - Anthology
Jason Becker - Collection
Bif Naked - Essentially Naked
Queensrÿche - Sign Of The Times: The Best Of...
Tina Turner – The Platinum Collection
John Waite & Jonathan Cain make The Babys good (Isn’t It Time is a great song). But I like Queensrÿche - Sign Of The Times: The Best Of best of all.
Gig of the Month
Rob Brydon might have been a worthwhile comedy winner even he was up with others.
There were originally no music bands (because Tina Turner was ill) but then I got to see The Allman Brothers Band in New York :)
Cinema film of the Month
Lesbian Vampire Killers
Watchmen - Awesome. Literally
Film on TV
Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
Death Note: The Last Name
- and 3 watched on the plane:
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist
Death Note: The Last Name - Those Japs have engaged my brain once again. It can only be watched after the first though. I also really enjoyed Australia and though N&NIP was nice.
Rewatched Film on TV
The Animal is an enjoyable Rob Schneider film.
Help was watched with Aly & Jamie but I think we all kept nodding off
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure! was watched while playing Texas Hold ‘E with Aly & Jamie.
Best DVD bought
I got Kentucky Fried Movie for £1 from Tesco.
Green Street Hooligans 2
Walk The Line
House Of The Dead 2
Superhero Movie was actually not too bad but I liked the weirdness of Dark Corners starring Thora Birch.
I thought I would get to read one on the plane, but they had movies.
I ♥ NY T-shirt and my NYPD T-shirt too.
April has 17 days at work, 8 gigs and maybe something special :o
