- Tour 2005: The Good, The Bad and the Percussion Section
Wind Orchestra and Brass Society went on Tour this summer, and for this tour a group of people from the music centre filmed some entertainment for the coach ride.
There were the introductory videos (to figure out who we all were) and "safety announcements" as only musicians could devise! But the main event was "Brasssoc: The Musical".
Some "hardcore" members of the music centre (mainly Owen and Andy, with help from Lu, Juicy and Stu, and the "actors") filmed a 20minute long musical. This was absolutely hilarious and was received with a resounding sucess.
There is also a CD included featuring the Colin Dean Radio Show, the Foreign Language course, and the soundtrack to Brasssoc: The Musical.
I thank everyone involved with this DVD/CD collection. A special mention must go to Andy and Owen, for all their input for the contents, and Owen for putting all the DVD/CD's together before term started. Well done!

- Thunderbirds Classic - Complete Collection (9-Disc Box Set) [DVD]
OMG! THEY'RE BACK!
After too long an absence from TV, they are back. The Tracy family and their friends are here to save the world.
All 32 episodes to entertain you, as well as quite a few extras. "Featurettes", Fact files, Cross-sections of the 5 main machines, and more.
This will keep you going for hours. It;s thoroughly enjoyable, and the strings aren't even that visible. Go and buy. The extravagance for this term!

- Shaun of the Dead [DVD] 
Right, this is my newest DVD, but I have also seen the film.
I absolutely loved it. Simon Pegg is brilliant in it, and the writing is amazing. It keeps you interested, and makes you laugh out loud. There are all the aspects of a cheesy horror film, and the comedy is hilarious.
I especially like the scene when Shaun (Simon Pegg) walks to the newsagent without realising that anything is amiss. Yet, in the background we see some Zombies staggering around, and Shaun doesn't even notice the bloody handprints of the fridge door while he takes out his can of cola!
It is very well done, and the zombies actually look pretty decent; they look like they were once human.
I hope you all see this British comic masterpeice, and have as much fun as I had.
