I used to have a pair of Sony MDR-V700 headphones which lasted me a long time and gave off a great sound.

Seems they dont exist any more, can anybody tell me what they were replaced by - I'm assuming Sony discontinued the range and created a new line?

thanks for the good news this morning my old friend.


Chakrabati , As much use to society as my sweetcorn infused , heavily weighted , calcium deficient log in the shit pan. Can there ever have been, in the evolution of mankind, a less relevant entity to the  working class male going about his lawful business , going to work everyday to put food upon the table for his children, than this spacker sex dwarf ?. I think not. A 'job' lecturing diversity and human rights at Yale beckons.


Lol, superb! That has made my day, 'spacker sex dwarf' ha ha ha

Completely off topic, but what a film that is!

ETC the BDO is essential viewing mate! If only to smirk at the constant references by the commentator to 'the magic of the BDO' and the amazing way that they never ever mention the PDC at all.

Plus the standard displayed by the ladies in the tournament, who can checkout in about 25 darts per leg lol!

I enjoyed Bioshock 1 and 2 a lot, and didnt really think they could do much more with it - but Bioshock Infinite was absolutely amazing. Enjoyed it so much.

Think Bioshock Infinite, The Last of Us and GTA5 came out within 2 months of each other on the PS3 as well, great time for gamers

Enjoying this mix Homegrove, thanks for providing

I got two tickets for Underworld on 24th March this morning. Didnt realise it was the day before Good Friday so even better.

Have never seen them live yet, cannot wait!

I lasted an hour on both Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas and couldnt get on with them at all. I simply didnt really know what I had to do and got bored very quickly. Not my cup of tea really; apart from GTA I do prefer the more linear games such as Uncharted, Batman, Last of Us etc.

I also tried MGS5 this month (never played a MGS in my life) and again, lasted about an hour and gave up.

Barring Uncharted 4 I can't really see any other games I'm keen on at the moment; will play Black Ops 3 but only when my nephew has gotten bored with it.

Finished Batman Arkham Knight recently which was really enjoyable, absolutely loads to do in the game to keep me interested.

Gonna wait for Uncharted 4 to come out I think. Never been into the Metal Gear Solid games.

What is the next Rockstar game?

The BBC sportsday feed reverting to type again today, with their expert journalists posting pictures of empty press conferences for this weekend's games.

And I forgot to add the rise of the 'heat map'from matches, showing where the players were running to and from. So useful and insightful FFS!

Welcome to American-styled news reporting, fellas - where 'the news' is all about filling content and creating excitement over absolutely nothing, when instead they could be reporting about what's going in places like Benin or the Central African Republic, bu who the fuck cases about Africa, eh?

CNN are the bloody worst at doing this. I honestly don't give a flying fuck about the latest Kardashian breakdown.

Getcha.

Yep this is the way it's going sadly.

The world does not need 24 hour news channels.

I forgot to add the 'gossip' column on BBC sports football page. I could handle it when it was about transfers, but it's morphed into a load of claptrap about what footballers tweeted the day before. Oh and the latest Paul Pogba update which was the same as yesterday....

The BBC are really getting into gertcha territory these days.

It used to be that it would have to be a pretty major event for the 'Breaking News' banner to unfurl itself; now it's getting an airing 5 or 6 times a day, the latest being 'Paula Radcliffe denies cheating'. Is that really essential, breaking news?

Then there is the online sports coverage, especially on match days, where they seem to generate their own sports news by interviewing their own journalists, or asking people to tweet questions to their 'expert' Phil McNulty. All finished off with a cheeky pointless tweet from Lineker, who'll add something useful such as 'That Aguero......he's not a bad player you know'

Gary - gertcha!

13. Cookie - Choose Me (F.O.S. Mix 1) [Z Records]

An amazing track, looking forward to listening to the rest of the mix!

Fair play to Wenger. Not spending for the sake of it, especially when you see how the prices are going. 50m for Cavani really?

Not one mention of Luton which makes me wonder how it gets voted worst place in Britain?

The area around Anfield is the worst place I've been in in the UK. Had to walk about a mile to the ground and we were hassled by about eight 10 year olds threatening to stab us etc.

I have had a PS4 for about a year now and have no complaints with it. It's a slick machine - starts quickly, easy to navigate round and has loads of apps for videos etc. Some great games are starting to come out now such as Batman and then Uncharted 4 next year.

I borrowed an Xbox One from my nephew for about a month earlier this year and was so underwhelmed with it. A lot slower than the PS4, especially for installing new games - always had to wait absolutely ages for them to install and load. I'm glad I never purchased one

Against my better judgement I viewed 'Benefits by the Sea' last night on ITV and was treated to the story of 'Disco Dave' who gets £140 per fortnight in benefit and spends every single penny on alcohol and fags.

In his earlier days he was a burglar and stole to fund his drinking.

Now at what point do we say enough is enough and stop giving out free cash to people like him?

One of the guys who posted on social media said he was in the middle of an 80 hour shift. Is that legal?

Agree with point above, I don't think doctors are the problem

£6m for Schweinsteiger is superb business.

He's right about Slovenia though. That mix stunk of Ginsters Beef and Onion pasties.

Sorry guys, there's always one isnt there!

Is there anyone who doesn't like this?

If there is, they should be killed.

Hands up over here.

I can see that everybody is giving this a massive thumbs up but I just cannot get into it, and I've played it a good few times.

Whereas with London there were so many memorable tracks on each disc, I didn't get that vibe with South Beach.

Slovenia, Miami and South Beach are my least favourite of the series so far

i read about this yesterday - literally wtf

if Milner is the standard of player we are looking for to wear no.7 then might as well give up now

Never understood the fuss about wearing a shirt number that was previously inhabited by a club legend or not. Does it really matter? More media nonsense I reckon.

Inherent Vice - finally got round to watching this the other night. Trailer made it look really interesting but I found it hard going. Couldnt really tell what was going on for large parts of it.

I'm planning on watching The Master which also has Joaquin Phoenix in it - its been out a few years but I never had the chance to see it, and I've heard good reviews

Thinking about fucking it all off now and going to NOW TV, tbh i'd rather head to the boozer to watch the games i actually wanna watch.

Yep pretty much, 7 quid a month for Now TV rather than rather than whatever Sky are charging now, much better value

Arent the sports extra though? I have purchased the day pass for Sports for £6.99 but obviously thats just a 24 hour thing; is it £7 a month for the other stuff i.e. entertainment and movies?
