  1. What music did you buy today?

    Bought a used copy at one of the Disk Union's in Tokyo, complete with box and booklet, for 1800 yen or just below $18. That is definitely what I consider a bargain! Must have been mispriced.
  2. Game of Thrones accents

    So not Yorkshire.
  3. I had to laugh

    I'm completely ignorant about football/soccer -- could there be 15 players dressed per team in a game? That'd make it 'a tribute' package. In Canada, we get eggs by the dozen, and there are (in some big stores) packages of 18. You want just 6? Some shops may cut a 12-pack in half for you, and charge 60% of the price... Wrong sport! There are however 15 players in a rugby union team.
  4. Miles again, Amazon UK again, 'The Bootleg Series Vol. 2' for 10.17 GBP. Don't think this one is incorrectly priced! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Miles-Davis-Quintet-Europe-Bootleg/dp/B008YCMM2A/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1364968065&sr=1-1
  5. Grant Green

    OK, support for my complaint today about the board's search function. Let's face it, guys, it sux. IPB, are you listening? Yep, I agree I normally search via Google (or other search engine) & insert organissimo with the criteria Just searched under Artists, titles only and 15 threads appeared, so not sure what the problem is.
  6. My order was also cancelled. Disappointing but understandable.
  7. What Are You Watching

    Late as usual but just recorded and watched the entire 13 episodes. Really enjoyed Rubicon and wish there had been a second series to answer at least a few of the unanswered questions!
  8. Ok, a real bargain for once but don't expect it to last. The 20 CD 'Perfect Miles Davis Collection' for just over 5 pounds on Amazon UK. http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Perfect-Miles-Davis-Collection/dp/B005ELZNH0/ref=pd_sim_m_h__3
  9. What music did you buy today?

    That price is obscene ! Well it was 1500 yen so closer to $16 really!
  10. What music did you buy today?

    Nice to have decent stores here in Tokyo. Cycled over to the Disk Union in Shinjuku yesterday and picked up the following for around $1 each. Johnny Griffin - The Congregation (TOCJ) Clare Fischer - Surging Ahead (TOCJ) Charlie Haden - Quartet West Terence Blanchard - Jazz In Film Also a Mosaic set, Ike Quebec - Complete Blue Note 45 Sessions for around $15.
  11. What Are You Watching

    Same here, first time I saw him was in 'Life'. Never saw him in 'The Forsyte Saga'. I too liked 'Life' a lot and was quite smitten with Sarah Shahi as his sidekick. Happy to see she will be appearing in 'Person of Interest'. Anyone else love that show?
  12. What Are You Watching

    Found season one of 'Homeland' compelling viewing, very powerful. Agree about Damian Lewis, just saw him in the recent film 'The Sweeney' and it was strange to hear him talking in a London accent!
  13. All There, Ever Out

    Alexander,congratulations! Best jazz album of 2012 according to The Guardian. http://www.guardian....-albums-of-2012
  14. I just got these in the mail and popped them in the player... SPECTACULAR! I'm in heaven! Yes, they are both excellent, real labours of love.
  15. $19.99 for the CTI box seems like a good deal on Amazon. http://www.amazon.co...versary edition
  16. TJ Lubinsky

    OTOH, The Stones!http://www.guardian....y-fans-reaction
  17. This is a great deal on the two 'Jazz on Film' box sets. Highly recommend both of these wonderful sets. http://moochinabout.com/store.html
  18. Scheduled upgrade for 9am EST tomorrow

    I like it but does anyone know if there is a way to view the board without seeing the avatars? (As was easy to do before the upgrade).
