Ronco's Rock 'N Roller Disco LP Review

                        Is this one of the oddest 'As Seen On TV' compilations ever released? Strap on your knee pads and grab your spangly hotpants as we take a spin around the peaks, troughs and musical switcheroos found on Ronco's not-a-cynical-cash-grab-in-any-way 1979 Disco /New Wave mutant compilation "Rock `N Roller Disco"!

From The Beatles to Bowie (And Beyond?): The Cover Songs Challenge!



After being tagged in a 'pick 10 cover versions' facebook thingy I thought I'd try and link two of my favourite covers using songs covered by the previous artist... yeah, I still can't properly explain it in words but you'll get the idea if you watch the video.

Fifine™ K058 USB Microphone: An Idiot's Guide (How Not To Use...)

 

I needed a new mic so I thought I'd get the Fifine K058 as it got good reviews on Amazon. And yeah, if you're reading this after watching the vid you'll realise that I was using it all wrong! Oh well, a lesson learned. The moral of the story: always read the instructions!

Westlers Tinned 'Burgers' in 'Onion' 'Gravy' : Welcome To The Cheap Eats #2!

 
How much burger meat can you get for a pound (£)? None whatsoever if it comes in a tin. I realise that not everyone can afford to spend their hard-earned on super-fancy cuisine but trust me; if you're skint you'd be better off buying some rice or veggies than this garbage.

My Diary: July 1983 - Octopussy, Summer Holidays and Classic Horror!

Laugh at my incredibly bad spelling! See what kids got up to before the internet! Tune in next time for more 80's nostalgia!
