At least you knew where you were when it was 'the troubles'. Growing up near the home of the British army meant I had many a decent day off school thanks to one of my mates faking an Irish accent and phoning the school office with the line 'there's going to be a bang'. Great days.
I thought Utopia was mint and should never have been pulled.
Yeah was a real shame but Channel 4 ruined series two by scheduling it so late in the year and then didn't give it the same promotion they gave series one, plus they commissioned Humans and that became their main sci-fi series so Utopia got canned. I was quite surprised that Amazon or Netflix didn't pick it up though as they were offered it
Black Friday, yet another unwanted American import, watching Chavs fight over a flat screen telly so they can get 30 quid off. At least this year most people seem to be doing their shopping online so we don't have to see their ugly faces blighting the high street
I hate it that DJs these days feel the need to do something like make a mix cd full of their own edits. If you want to do something special, don't make it full of exclusives, do it like Chris Fortier did with his Balance 10 years ago. It was full of music that was all already released and people could buy, but was mostly stuff not a lot of people knew about. Man I love that mix still.
Sasha has always got to go one better though, he did the Involver series as he felt that the old style mix cd was passe and everyone was doing them so he wanted to remix all the tracks on it so they were more exclusive. What he needs to realise is that Diggers has proved with his live in series that you can do a decent mix cd with some upfront tunes and a few known tracks and it will still sell
