Scoots and scootering / Rat Style
« on: May 18, 2016, 01:47:34 PM »
OK so last night I was with a mate who works on old scooters. In his shed amongst the mix of bikes there was an old lammer. I started chatting to him commenting on how much work it needed doing as it was beat up to f*ck and had rust over 90% of its body. He started to laugh and said it was only in for a new wiring loom and everything else I saw was as the owner wanted it and it went like a rocket. Obviously I thought he was taking the proverbial and told him where to go. But after talking further and inspecting the body closer I saw the paintwork / rust had been protected in a clear coat of sealant.  I was introduced to the world of Rat Style. So with that in mind has anybody else come across it and what are your thoughts? Personally I feel sorry for these old scoots as my first thought is to refurbish. Apparently it is big in the vdub world too. Anyway here's a link to give you an idea of what I am on about.

General music chat / NME 100 Best Songs of the 1960's
« on: March 08, 2016, 02:08:55 PM »
I came across this interesting article that I'm sure will create plenty of debate about whether these tracks should have made the list or not and should be moved up or down the pecking order:

At the very least it should help create some good personal playlists for people.....

Seems controversy follows Nina even after she is long passed. This time however it is around the choice of actress chosen to play Nina in the following film:

Spotify playlists and online mixes / 90's College Radio Set
« on: January 14, 2016, 12:32:58 PM »
While rummaging through some bits and bods the other day I came across an old hand written playlist I had made for a college radio show I did back in the early '90's. It gave me a bit of a chuckle thinking back to it so I decided to put myself out there for judgement / ridicule by publishing it on Mixcloud.

The mix itself was made with my "funk" hat on. I am a many tentacled octopus when it comes to music.

Have a listen, I hope you enjoy and feel free to offer any feedback you like - I'll try not to resent the funk out you...  :)

While looking through the available titles I noticed - Worricker: Page Eight / Turks and Caicos / Salting the Battlefield DVD collection.
I have seen all three and thought they were great. I also remember them being mentioned here I think on the "What are you watching" thread and people having difficulty getting copies, hence the post.

The discount code to use is 3420BS

Hope it's helpful.

Mod fashion and style / Bass Weejuns Sizing
« on: July 14, 2015, 09:31:48 PM »
Fellas - just wanted to check on peoples experience of sizing for Bass Weejuns.

I am in the market for a pair and was possibly going to buy online however don't want to go down the road of returns if the sizing is "particular".
Normally I take a UK 8 in laced shoes.
