Im considering an interesting musical project, whereby I write a review of every single album I own, either alphabetical or roughly chronological order.

Would be a fascinating thing to do for me, and I hope provide interesting reading.

Just need to find time to do it... dont hold your breath. (yet)

Currency Change and the Basildon Bond

I cannot stand 50 Cent. And that is for one reason and one reason only. He is a shit rapper.
