These things are brilliant, absolutely brilliant. More things need to come in processed cheese style format. Unwrap one of these fellas and slap it on a rice cake! Marginal improvement. Well I paid for them so I better use them. It would be rubbish on toast because jars of chocolate spread are so much more awesome. Best I could do. Will this be bought again?

None of the ones I tried really jumped out as being amazing except one. Instead I was reminded of Harp, Tennants, Stella, and so on, but at least though I was giving the stuff a try. It turns out the Polish drinker likes his and or her beer to have a bit of kick. Anyway, the lads where not to be distracted by the huge selection of odd ball foreign sweets and chocolates or the mind boggling selections of Vodkas, which is available in gun shaped bottles, cock shaped bottles, skull shaped bottles, hand grenade shaped bottles, sperm cell shaped bottles and all sorts of hilarious shaped receptacles.
All they wanted was Carlsberg. Hardly surprising, we had been in Krakow since Tuesday, but on Friday afternoon things changed dramaticley, the numbers in the city swelled, stag parties where everywhere, and this was February, I dread to think what this city looks like in August.
It got to the stage where, when we where looking for pubs, if we heard a load of English lads, we left and went elsewhere. So back to the beer. They add juice.
Large beer with a slug of this thick juice in it. Simple as that. They also serve beer and cider hot, but I never got the chance to try that. The juice really sweetens the beer, but not in a bad way. I brought a few tins of Tatra larger home, mixed it with the juice, punk rock. Take this rock bar, Grodzka It was in a basement, like many bars, and it was dark, really dark. Plenty of choice in the bottled department, but I was all about the draught beer.
Power Metal, cheap, stinks of smoke. It smelt better than the Jazz Rock Cafe, also in a basement, which stank of shit. It tastes very sweet and the honey is really evident. Posted in out and about Tagged beerkrakowtatra 1 Comment ». February 9, by Mild Hog Ride. On a recent browse of the old Home Bargains shelves I found something that really made me think twice.
I had to sneak these into the house and then hide them in the back of the cupboard, for fear that Vicky might bar me from entering the house with my canned treat or worse, find my prized tin and chuck it in the bin.
I then had to wait until I had the house to myself to sample the delights within. My cunning rouge was rumbled though and the tin was found.
I was allowed to keep it though as long as the following happened:. If this product is too disgusting for even me to get through I am not to throw it in the kitchen waste recycling bin. I am to place it in a biodegradable bag and take it straight out to the garden waste bin. Rip open the tin and dump that gross slop into the pot. As the contents heat a smell starts to waft through the kitchen. This is not pleasant. I struggle through, one piss smelling piece of slaughterhouse leftovers at a time.
That title still belongs to the mini burgers in onion gravy, where leftover bits of kidney where probably the better cuts of meat. Posted in tinned crap Tagged canned food. January 2, by Mild Hog Ride. Posted in out and about Leave a Comment ». December 29, by Mild Hog Ride. Avenge Sevenfold, My Chemical Romance and other such bollocks.
Nothing I would be interested in. Holy shitballs batfucks! So I sit my fat ass down and settle down for some quality power metal with a touch of humour. Thankfully the official video is not available to watch in the UK, I looked it up You-tube and got this message:. Good on them I say saving hard working metal fans in the UK from being subjected to this shite. Why on earth would anybody do this? Why would Helloween take one of their greatest ever songs and turn it into a really shitty novelty version?
I could understand some other turdfaced band doing this on some second rate tribute album, but the actual makers? This is awful. I keep watching asking myself why? Over and over again. So this was recorded for a 25 th anniversary best off type thing. December 4, by Mild Hog Ride. After a bit blagging I eventually secured a cassette copy of a copy of a copy of 7 th Son. I copied it again on the family Alba minisystem cassette to cassette copying over Afterburner, Buggy Boy and a few other Spectrum classics in the process and and listened to it repeatedly on my big red Sanyo personal stereo.
This interest in Iron Maiden immediately brought mockery from my friends and fellow metal fans. They where the cool bands, my love of Def Leppard and Iron Maiden was not cool. Being into metal already singled me out as a loser, now I was a loser among losers. No Prayer for the dying is released. It had gotten worse, much worse. My recent discoveries of Gamma Ray and Manowar where impressing no-one. Manowar where seen rightly as sad and not cool. They paraded about in leather loin clothes and ranted about death to false metal.

The transactions between fan and band never cease in a streaming model.
The relationship between fan and music never ends. The main issue with that line of thinking is that the labels and artists are looking at the now. Everyone wants to be paid now, and they want to be paid a lot.
Streaming is about longevity. Streaming is digging the hole for piracy. People will always pirate; that is a given. However, if fans of music are faced with a better legal alternative, then they will take it.
Bon Jovi the bandneeded to rethink their strategy. The band has always favoured the old model, of spending three to six months recording a new album, releasing that album, using sledgehammer mainstream marketing and touring for a year and a half on it.
The point of the tour was to also push the new album, hoping that it would drive sales of it. They still measured their success on how many full albums were sold. Towards the end of the band released their Bon Jovi app on iTunes and Android. It was a pretty basic application; however, it was their first step into new territory: Technology.
The rain stayed away. Driving for 30 minutes, the sun came out. After driving for two hours to get to the venue, the sun was still out and it was very humid. This is my boys second concert. Its My Life - Various - The All Time Greatest Hits Of Dance 2 (Cassette) we left for the trip, I went onto Setlist.
I assumed that since Melbourne and Sydney are treated more or less the same in relation to how overseas acts see the two cities, that the set lists would be very similar. And they were. Basically we listened to the set as we where driving up. It is a great concept and a great idea.
It took the mixer crew about 3 seconds to realise that they needed to press a button so that the rest of the stadium hears the sound. Of course we can adapt to situations and sometimes we can fake a different personality but in the end, we all fall back to how we were made and what we are. Or Wishing well? Life is no Garden of Eden.
It never was and it never will be. We have copyright granted monopolies fighting hard to control the internet. We have people working 12 hour days just to see all of their money go to the mortgage, to the utility companies and just to basic survival goods. At night, we might feel better saying a pretty prayer, but that is all it is. The World is cracked and Crazy. Both songs are designed for the live show and they work a treat. It is a great song for the live show.
Any song that starts off with that opening lyric, is designed purely for the concert. It is the call and response. A great pick me up after the lackluster double whammy from the new album. Jon really struggled with the Gm key of the song.
However, the outro jam Its My Life - Various - The All Time Greatest Hits Of Dance 2 (Cassette) between the band sure made up for the vocal shortcomings. The next four songs, was the toilet break and drink break period of the concert. I made a mention to my wife the amount of people walking toward the exit doors to stock up on booze when the song started.
From the catalogue of songs that Bon Jovi has, the 4 song acoustic part of the show was a let down. However, they finished the set strong. So did the audience miss Richie Sambora? Apart from about 5 poorly selected song choices, it was a solid set, with the actual songs as the STARS. No one cared who wrote the songs.
Will Bon Jovi do the same numbers again if they return with the current incarnation of the band? My view is NO. Watching some of the facials and the way Jon was carrying himself, it is like he knew this could be the last time Bon Jovi graces Australia.
Was it an enjoyable night? It was. The looks on my kids faces was worth it. This happened in and the actual YouTube clip from back then has been blocked in Australia on copyright grounds by Universal Music. That clip was sitting at 3. However a fresh upload Its My Life - Various - The All Time Greatest Hits Of Dance 2 (Cassette) the dance routine to the Utrend.
They compare illegal downloading of a song with walking into a coffee shop and stealing a cup of coffee. Remember the MPAA commercials from the early two thousands that equated copying movies the same as stealing a car. Seriously, are people still thinking like this in For the hundredth time stealing means that Person A has taken a song that Mark Dreyer has written and Dreyer does not have that song anymore.
Copyright infringement means that Person A has taken a copy of a song that Mark Dreyer has written. Stealing and copyright infringement are two very different things. Now if Dreyer is not getting paid for the success of his songs, then that is something that he needs to work out with the artist, publishing or label that is getting paid.
Music piracy is a result of the record labels inability to innovate. Case closed. Of course, due to the one-sided contracts that artists and songwriters signed, they are the ones that are doing it tough. Of course not, as there is still a lot of money doing the rounds in music.
However is that such a bad thing. But wait, streaming is bad for the artist. But wait, piracy still exists. The song is available on all the pirate sites for free, however people still decided to pay for a legitimate version of the song. People still went and streamed a legitimate version of the song. People went on YouTube and watched the clip of the song on the various channels that host it.
People still went and downloaded the song illegally. Basically, people will do what they want to do. Even Tim Millar the guitarist from Protest the Hero is a recorded music pirate. I think people should get to hear music before they buy it. So as soon as the record leaked, we sent everyone a digital download code that night. Millar gets it.
Doc Coyle gets it. Piracy is not that bad. Also, notice that the people most bothered are ones to tend to make the most money from music. No one ever cares about giving their demo away for free when they are unknown, but when you start make a living from music solely and record sales suddenly have an impact on your lifestyle and well-being, that stance changes.
This is not a knock on those individuals — just the way it is. I am not pissed off by illegal downloaders, even though I probably should be. The contraction of this industry has been devastating to the economy of music.
Do I want people to buy my albums? Hell yeah! The truth is, I buy some albums, but I also I do download some from torrents sites. The real question is, how does that affect me morally? Is it stealing in the traditional sense of the word? The internet changed the way people saw the world. Throughout history, industries and trades become obsolete or they evolve. I guarantee you that any musician that has tried to make it has pirated music. Show me one musician that says that they never pirated or infringed and I will show you a liar.
Basically the record labels, the RIAA, the book publishers and the movie studios seemed to think that people wanted the physical products to own and keep, however what the people wanted was the content. Streaming is on the scene, however it is 14 years too late. It should have been there from day one, before Napster. Now it needs to play catch up. I know Bandcamp takes 10 percent, so you know that 90 percent of that money is going to the band.
The last line is the cold hard truth. As an artist, you want fans to hear your music and then to come to a show and buy some merchandise. If that means a fan buys the album, then buys a concert ticket and then buys a T Shirt.
If that means a fan streams the album, then buys a concert ticket and then buys a T Shirt. If that means a fan downloads the album for free, then buys a concert ticket and then buys a T shirt. Great as well. Maybe they will commit on the next one. There are just so many variables out there, however the main variable that artists should be focusing on is getting the music heard. Music was never designed to be a pension fund. But hey, people hate change and songwriters are still clueless. By the end of the story line, the main character has made a decision but it is unclear what it is.
The important thing is that the main character stood his ground, however Taylor wanted to leave it up to the listener to decide what choice the main character has made. To me the house of gold and bones represents life. The Gold can be anything that you make it to be, like family, children, fun, good times, doing something that you love, wealth, success, standing up for what you believe in and love. The Bones represents hardships, doing it tough, climbing up hills with no end in sight, destitution, depression, sadness and death.
It is the main motivator for the paths and actions we take. Once upon a time, all of our heroes just wanted to create. How did he get the gig? Hell, Kael was only know to a small Las Vegas circle of musicians.
He asked Hook to check around with those musicians as he was sure he would get a good review and basically he got his foot in the door, he got the audition and then he got the gig. Connections however small they seem at the start all pay off in the end. Was Kael motivated by money? He was motivated by performing, by creating and by wanting to be in a band.
Imagine Dragons independently released three EPs and toured extensively before signing with Interscope. Then the band received an email from Alex Da Kid. He liked their music and wanted to write with them. It soon turned into the Imagine Dragons song writing effort. Were Imagine Dragons motivated by money when they started playing the Vegas casino circuit? They were motivated by the need to create and play live.
Connections leads to collaborations. For whatever purposes these collaborations begin with, they seem to take a life on their own. Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora initially started to work with Desmond Child so that they can write songs for other artists to sing. The next song was Living On A Prayer.
