I bought the set just for the commentary and special features. The love and detail that went into making these films is nothing short of epic. I will watch these over and over again.

Work great. Fold nicely for pocket storage. Buttons are hard to manipulate because they are on your head and behind you, but if you don't need to mess with the volume then you are golden.

I've been buying these for years because of the handy phone pocket on the leg. Not sure what it is really for but fits my Samsung Note 2 perfectly.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this to remind me how much fun this movie was. It would get 5 stars if not for the inclusion of "Cherry Bomb" and the crappy cover. I love The Runaways and Joan Jett but to me that song was quite different than the rest of the album. I was also a bit disappointed in the cover artwork. You don't put 'Vinyl Edition' on the actual cover, you put it on a sticker or something! The album artwork should have looked like an old 70's K-Tel record. The 4 stars are for the sound quality. Please redo the cover and send me something that is actually cool.

This review is from: Hunting Gatherers (MP3 Music)
I picked up this LP at a record fair in San Francisco. The cover had a cool retro tongue-in-cheek feel and the guy from the label described it very well. I was pleasantly surprised to find the music well written, well played and well produced. It's a brilliant mix of Metallica and Uriah Heep. If you like melodic prog metal I would highly recommend it.

This is the best 'beginner' guitar I've ever played. I'm just starting to learn and a friend who has some expensive guitars says this one sounds 'bright'. Well worth the money.

Playrix strikes again. I try to avoid anything from Playrix because everything I've played from them sucks hours from my life. This game is no exception. In fact just writing this review makes me want to get to the next level. Gotta run.

5.0 out of 5 stars From the Emerald Isle to the Big Apple, April 6, 2012
This review is from: Gone to Amerikay (Hardcover)
Like 'Stagger Lee', 'Gone to Amerikay' is collection of threads woven together to create a magnificent tapestry, and like a great tapestry, the final image is not revealed until the last stitch is in place. The book follows the lives of three generations of Irish immigrants. It jumps between a young woman in 1870 anxiously awaiting her husbands arrival, a 1960 musician and a present day businessman. We see the struggles and triumphs of the forebears and how they affect the lives of their descendants. The book draws heavily on Irish folk music and makes one wish it came with a recording of these powerful songs.

The illustrations are vibrant and detailed. The illustrator (Colleen Doran) meticulously recreates 19th century New York (including the infamous 5 Corners district and the Dead Rabbits gang), the 1960s Greenwich Village scene and today's Big Apple. She manages to easily allow the reader to jump between timelines knowing exactly whose story we are following on every page.

The author (Derek McCulloch) relies heavily on dialog (as opposed to narration) to let the characters tell the story. The characters use the slang and colloquialisms of the time and gain their own voices in your mind as you read their words.

The story itself is complex and requires the readers attention. This is not a comic book, it is an illustrated novel. If you don't pay attention the first time through you will have to read it again to understand the ending. Which is not a bad thing. Not a bad thing at all.

Highly recommended.
