It's odd, me and my husband are some of those people that buy hard copies and special editions, put them on MP3 players and computers and put the CD and any extra bits on the shelf where it rarely comes out again.

We could save ourselves money by buying the tracks off Itunes or any other download site, but we won't do it- it doesn't make sense but there's something about owning the hard copy that is difficult to resist.

I feel the exact same, I really need the hard copy, however most of them do see a CD player once in a while

Same with me

A really good CD just isn't complete without the REAL thing, booklet etc.
I just need something to grab with my greedy fingers

Last year I made it beyond 100 original CDs ^^
Newest, bough today: Eluveitie - Helvetios
Awesome Album once again

O yeee!

Is it just me or you perpetually live on holiday and travelling abroad?

Mmmm... maybe you work for the secret service or something. although a spy with a big red beard isn't exactly inconspicuous.

Randomness as usual. today I'm talking food.

Tried to make steak and ale pie last week (win win win) to pair with some beer I had kicking around in the house. But now I'm stuck on what to do with a half kilo marzipan log someone gave to me at Christmas... can't do anything other than eat it, but not a big fan

This is proper expensive stuff, handmade by nuns, organic ingredients an all

"Handmade by nuns"

Hahaha

You can make some cool cake-decoration out of it, to put on top of a cake the next time you need celebrate something

It IS handmade in a convent. It's a Spanish thing.

unfortunately it's not the soft type you use for that, or the frangipani type... i'm thinking it may work inside puff or fillo pastry to make something like a baclava?

It's on mine too A colleague of James is involved with CAMRA so we normally go.

It's on at the corn exchange, miles away from city centre though... I think they realised last year the venue was far too small for the number of people that turned up.

PM when it's confirmed and we'll arrange to meet!

Will do. If all goes according to plan, I should be there around June 25 until July 1st. The Brewdog pub might be my HQ for that week.

Not that big a Rammstein fan myself, but we could've met up in CPH if you wanted Gnoff. Unfortunately it is sold out now. BUT when you come to the land of the potato-in-mouth speakers next time you should let me know

A friend I'm staying with is meeting me at the station, I have no idea where they live though, and I don't know the way to the venue

I know my way around Copenhagen centre, or at least how to get to the breweries and beer bars, of course. Though don't know the plans for the night yet.

I can bet money on me and my friends heading out for beers before and after Rammstein though

I arrive fairly early by train, at 13.11, looks like the doors for the venue is at 19.00.

I'll PM you my cell phone number, shoot me a text if you feel like meeting up with the beer crazy gnoff and his nutty friends and I'll let you know where we are and what the plans are set to

We should be easy to recognize, me being the tall bearded dude with glasses, my friend having pink and blue dreads in her hair and her hubby being a tall über-blonde swede

As for understanding Danish, I have a very hard time with it, but have promised I'll try this time
