More Glastonbury,currently watching Madness........superb!
Even more Glastonbury, Just watched an excellent performance from Blur with more to come later.Am now watching the Prodigy who are also putting on an excellent show.
A new series on BBC 2, On Thin Ice about a trek to the South Pole with three celebrities...damn these celebrities! We have also been watching a travelogue with Billy Connoly journeying across the top of Canada and the Northwest Passage. I must be missing winter or something!
Bits of Glastonbury and enjoyed Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Internet - laptop - DAC - amp - lots of headphones.

Pan's Labyrinth on more4.
Never bothered watching it till now as not much of a fantasy fan and dont do subtitles, but am quite enjoying it all the same.
Boys Over Flowers (KBS DVD Boxset)Will soon be watching this recent K-Drama series, hopefully as good as it's popularity suggests.e
Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny on C4
I've just done a Doubt Review on The Leisure Lab, hot on the heels of Gran Torino, both of which are excellent.
Neither one is without a few weaknesses admittedly, with Doubt in particular succumbing to some shamefully hamfisted thunderstorms and dutch-tilts in its unnecessary attempts to mirror the plot's paranoia in the visuals, but still, both of them are genuinely absorbing and create real tension.
The Tour de France. Excellent commentary and presentation, lovely scenery and even though I am no cyclist the racing, particularly the tactics and Lance Armstrong being back is great.
Actually enjoying "Torchwood" this week after hating the previous series. Less annoying characters, pretty good cliff-hangers, and looks and sounds very nice on HD and Dolby Digital.
I work for Naxos but my views are my own.

Mock The Week, last night BBC2, back for a new series, funny as ever
EDIT - and New Tricks is back.
Just watched-last night- Blurays of The Italian Job, and Ghostbusters.Italian Job,forty years old still a cracking film,but Ghostbusters at a relatively modest 25 years old, is oh so dated,in fact it`s poor.
Clint saves the day and is a total hero, as it should be. Funny as well......
Last night, Knowing enjoyable until the rubbish endingNow Revolutionary Roadstill got Slumdog and Valkyrie to watch before back to BB on wednesday.Oh and Glory popped through the box last week, one of my faves.
Last night I watched Officer and Gentleman for the first time as there was nothing on. Good film though
But now we have got on a Brian Wilson Documentary/Concert.
And later I will be watching either Lord of the Rings or Quantom Of Solace undecided yet.

Watched Top Gear last night. Very surprised to see Richard Hammond had bought the exact same Lanchester my Dad's got. Except my Dad's is beige...... And works.....Glad it didn't end up trashed like most Top Gear challenge cars. I might be able to make him an offer for it for spares.
