    Well according to your profile, you're 19. So presumably your job isn't that special. If you really want to have the best doctors, just quit your job and get another one after. Although it's odd that they won't give you time off, surely you're entitled to sick leave?

    To be honest, there are far too many bands I'd like to see for my meager bank balance to support. Maybe an overdraft is in order though, because I don't want to miss out on some bands. I really regret never seeing Pantera, and now I never will, I don't want that to happen again. My sister also has some Stones tickets, she's barely heard any of their music! But will she give one to me? Nooooo.

    Yeah EMA is thoroughly retarded. I've got a couple of friends who used to get it, whos parents were both (multi)millionaires, but because of some odd living arrangement, they got £30 a week. Were you listenting this afternoon HaVoC? Apparently Cream are getting back together for a few shows this year! I thought Ginger Baker was too decrepit to walk, let alone drum, but we shall see!

    Very Roger Daltry, and quite right too! Yeah, when you're up at 6 for a skirmish, it's surprising how easy Alice is to listen to! The only downside to the station is some of the adverts, it's not too bad at the moment, but they do seem to like picking the worst ones around, and playing them far too often. And after all that bitching as well!

    Fair enough then, at least you've given them a chance, each to their own and all that. I saw the tickets for sale earlier actually, and wondered if you'd won them from planetrock! The date's not good for me either though sadly, and my bank account would probably self-destruct to boot. And I'm not, I've got the Pure Bug radio, but being played through a rotel amp and some nice Linn floorstanders. There's no point listening to whitesnake and the like if you can't feel it throughout the house!

    That post started off so well, first I'm glad to find another planetrock worshipper, then you tell me that I've got a whole afternoon of Floyd to listen to, I'm starting to feel pretty happy. But then knocking them so much, totally undeserved! You don't have to like the band members to appreciate the music, you must like the guitar work? And they were so much more original than almost anything else out there. You can't have an epic song if it's only 5 minutes long, the build up is often what makes a song. Shine on you crazy diamond is a fantastic song, and just wouldn't be the same if it wasn't almost 20 minutes long. Try to get past your hate of the band and enjoy the music itself.

    Which travel version? I'm guessing probably the 150mm? Because the 100mm would more than faff your headangle. Pretty much any handling problem can be sorted with time, effort and sometimes ingenuity though.

    What forks are you using? Not an issue I've ever had, but chances are (unless you've got a major mechanical fault) that it can be sorted with a bit of fiddling with the damping adjustment. And tractors who hide behind blind rises in fast country roads. At 6.30 on Sunday mornings. If I hadn't been so ###### off about my previous nights date going wrong, I probably wouldn't have turned quickly enough to avoid it. And farmer Giles would have been scraping me off his Massey-ferguson with a spade.
