Desperate plea for help and attention begins... NOW!
I've decided, after a few years of toying with the idea, to make a proper shot for the upper echelons of the reviewers on Amazon.co.uk. I've knocked a scant ten reviews out over the last three years, but now I'm aiming for at least one a week from now until I get bored (probably some time in May, knowing me).
This is where YOU come in. If you have an Amazon.co.uk account, you can mark my reviews as useful or not. Each positive mark boosts my reviewer score, and each negative one reduces it. It's entirely anonymous, so if you don't like what I've written you're free to kick my review sore and bloody across the car park, and I'll never know. However, if you say that you like it, angels will rock you to sleep and glory will be brought to your household. Possibly.
My last one up was 'No. 3' by JJ (don't worry if you haven't heard of it - I got a pre-release copy through Rough Trade, and it's gorgeous), but you can access all my reviews by clicking on the handy link next to my name. I review under the name Crawton Leek - readers of my NaNoWriMo will understand. Possibly.
Right now I'm ranked 32,608th. If I can break the top 1000, I'll be a happy chappy.
It's all down to you.
Pathetic pleading ends, normal service resumed.

In recent forum banter, crazymat opined that he wouldn't be against having his name changed. What glorious opportunity for new threadage, thought I! So, drop your suggestions here, and try - try really, really hard - to keep them moderately clean.

It has just been brought to my attention that the last minute of this year will be a whole second longer!!!
Apologies to those of you who knew, but this is a major revelation for me. 2009 is a second further away, damnit!
I feel that we now need to think long and hard about how to spend this extra second. It's time enough for an extra sip of your drinky, a peck on someone's cheek, a full runthrough of all of Robbie Williams' decent songs - the possibilities are brief but endless!
So, how will you spend yours? I'll be holding my note on SingStar just a little longer in celebration.

I'll be working tomorrow, and I'm not happy about it.
I also know that I'm not alone in this. Christmas Eve, damn your eyes, should be a day for sitting about watching seasonal films (Muppets Christmas Carol being a personal fave), sipping mulled wine and generally putting your feet up, not slaving away at your nine-til-five whilst other people are out having a good time.
This thread, then, is for the poor and put-upon among us who have had fate pee in their ice cream, and now find themselves working the 24th. Moan! Complain! Be pathetic and whiney to your heart's content, without fear of judgement!
For a kick-off, I'd like to point out that my shift tomorrow is entirely redundant. I work in store technical support, and the latest that our stores will be trading til is 4pm. I'm in until 9:30. Where's the justice in that, I ask you! The upside of this is that I'll most likely be able to give each one of you the sympathy and encouragement you will need to get through your seasonal shift, given that I will have nothing better to do. More accurately, nothing else to do. At all.
That's me done. Anyone else?

Whenever year's end comes round, I can never reliably remember which albums have really floated my boat. With that in mind, I invite you all to give props to the quality releases of the year as they happen. It needn't just be albums either - good films you've watched, quality televisual entertainment and excellent gaming has its place herein also.
Sticking to the albums, I've been all over the following:
Portishead - Third. Not every 'head fan's cup of char, but I love it. Very different to the earlier triphop days, but still a tremendous release.
Pete And The Pirates - Little Death. Ramshackle indie-rock, low on originality but high on tunes and energy, there's not a single song on it that doesn't put some bounce 'n' swagger in my step.
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes. Only listened to it for the first time yesterday after it dropped through the letterbox from Rough Trade, but it had an instant effect on me. Several times during listening I had to drop what I was doing, lean my head back, close my eyes and soak up the harmonic beauty.
A further shout is needed for the Rough Trade Shops Counter Culture 07 comp, too. Technicallt the best of last year, its release in the early months of this one qualifies it for entry. A simply stunning comp packed with a little bit of everything, and a cherry on top.
There will be more, I don't doubt...

*waves* Hi, Inky! I just came by to send everyone an annoying comment. :) lol Actually, I wanted to see if anyone was still around and say hi! Oh, I have a baby boy now! No, I didn't name him after you. Sorry. But I hope you're doing well! Take care!

oh, and all ye who enter here be warned -
once you find yourself under the charming, illusive Kybosh's spell, you'll have no luck getting your way out. for the rest of your days, you'll be hopelessly ensnared!
btw, InKy's totally awesome. :)
