    HMV into administration

    http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/national/10161464.HMV_chain_calls_in_administrators/ Im sure many zoners like me will be sad at this news. Pre-internet this was the place to buy music. Comet, Jessops, HMV, they are falling like dominoes in the High Street. No doubt the one in Southend will...

    Hideous Christmas presents

    Just queued in HMV for some vouchers and the woman in front of me in the queue had bought two CDs guaranteed to ruin any Christmas; especially for the poor sod who is going to be on the receiving end of: Military Wives and Joanthan & Charlotte.

    The End of the High Street?

    With the imminent collapse of TJ Hughes following in the footsteps of Habitat, Jane Norman, the Moben kitchens group, which also encompasses Dolphin bathrooms and Sharpes bedrooms in the past 7 days and with HMV just about on the verge of collapse with their current fire sale, is the high...
  5. What are you playing right now?

    ...maybe not right this second but what's in your games system at the minute and what has been in it recently? Thought it might be a good way to talk about/get opinions on a few games that wouldn't otherwise get their own thread. I'm playing Aliens vs Predator on the PS3. I'd heard some...

    Things I will really miss about record shops

    Because, let's face it, they're all going to shut, aren't they? The thing I will miss most is that random chance discovery. I actually don't mind being able to buy & download music as and when I want it and think it's largely great. But I've had so many great trips to record shops where I've...

    HDMI Leads - A warning for those that like me didnt know...

    Ive just bought a Blu ray player and went to Maplins to get a hdmi cable. £32 ! I didnt buy one and asked the 12 year old who worked there why they were so expensive and fair play to the chap he said dont bother, just go to HMV or somewhere and buy one for a fiver. I have therefore ordered 3...

  9. The Boxer Rebellion album (finally) in shops September 14th

We have done a strange deal with HMV, and they are releasing our album properly (not just distribution) on September 14th...never been done like this before. This will be followed by a load of HMV instores including Oxford...

    Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip

    Not sure if anyone has heard of them, or their music. But their simply superb, and local lads too. The album 'Angles' is well worth a listen. Scroobius, the guy with the Castro style beard used to work in HMV in Lakeside. Watch this clip of them singing to get into the X Factor. Quality...
  12. Which movie....

    ...do all these classic lines come from? I'm just a bloody normal bloke. A normal bloke who likes a bit of torture. Jimmy, if you keep stabbing me, you're going to kill me. Aw, look. The bloke's been my best mate since 1975. We've had our fall-outs from time to time. It's no big deal...
  13. Taking things back to shops

    Being a complete pussy, I've never taken anything back to shops, but my earphones have broken after a week (no sound in one ear, and sometimes no ears), so I'm contemplating taking them back. They were only a tenner, but they shouldn't not work after a week. Will HMV just give me another pair...

    Teamcard blues

    I don't think that too many people have been convinced by the new scheme: if you already have a season ticket you have first shout on tickets for cup games etc. anyway and the 5% "reward" is, if my maths is okay, a mere half of the discount that seasos were getting in the club shop. (On top of...

    Do Men with Umbrellas work?

    Good Morning All, Yesterday lunch time myself and my work mate decided to take a trip from our base in London Bridge over to Liverpool Street. I needed a white shirt for a funeral I am going to and my mate Ben had £20 worth of HMV vouchers to spunk off. As we got outside it was spitting a...

I was looking at in in HMV the other day but cant bring myself to buy it for fear of the embarrsement so will...

  18. Playing Musical Catch Up

    Birthday presents this week have allowed me to forget about impending middle aged by catching up on some missed albums (some of my spare funds that would have normally been spent on CD's going on spoiling my daughter instead for the last 9 months or so). First up, the new Belle &amp...

    placebo - greatest hits

    absolutely blinding. dont usually do the 'greatest hits' thing but saw this at £4.99 in hmv and gave it a go. it was a good decision. placebo has not always been to everyones taste due to there unique style but this has an excellent selection of old and new. any thoughts fellow shrimpers?
