Because it’s a live album Neal Morse doesn’t get the gong. Alos close were Blind Guardian and Ozzy.
I choose joint winners in young melodic rock from Sweden’s H.E.A.T. - Freedom Rock and old melodic rock from Billy Sherwood and Toto’s Bobby Kimball Yoso – Elements.

Suprisingly nice 90s melodic rock from Beggars & Thieves – Beggars & Thieves. Lokoing forward to seeing them and others in 5 weeks.
Best best of CD purchased
This is a sign that I am nearing the end of my super CD buying years.
Gig of the Month
Glenn Hughes - The voice of rock. Such a shame that a legend like this plays a small venue. Mind you proper full on rock and roll atmosphere it was :)
Cinema film of the Month
Tamara Drewe was a nice English film but the Sandler/James/Rock/Spade/ Schneider combo in Grown Ups tickled me more.
Film on TV
The Pink Panther 2
The Invention Of Lying
The Kovak Box
Bikini Girls On Ice
The Pink Panther 2 was slapstick funny
The Invention Of Lying was funny
Outpost turned out to be fairly good horror
The Kovak Box was interesting thriller with a sci-fi twist.
Best DVD bought
I haven’t got room for many more, even though there are plenty of great films I could buy. Or I could wait till their on telly and record them to disc :)
Nanny McPhee & the Big Bang
Shrek Forever After
Where The Truth Lies
The Fourth Kind
The Karate Kid
The very spooky Paranormal Activity
Very gory underground monsterness The Descent: Part 2
Will I find time now that my life is changing?
I’m not sure which is better – The Sony Walkman NWZ-E455 16GB MP3 Player (Black) which I could get hundreds of albums on and play through Kel’s Sony docking speakers thing or the Y cable thing to connect my music player or my laptop to the stereo, especially now I have spotify.
October has 20 days at work, which will pretty much be the norm from now, It nicely has 3 gigs plus a 3 day music fest :)
