- 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!

I went away with Brasssoc and Wind Orchestra for a week, and loved it.
It was so much fun, we got up to loads and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
It was made especially amazing by Sopie (I miss you!).
(Sod's law that we got together on the last night, and she's off to France for a year in September! ARGH!)
In total, three new Music Centre couples were formed. From rumours of previous tours, I believe 3 is less than usual, but I'm not sure.
I can't wait to see everyone again, but that is going to be difficult due to lots of them graduating, and being a (finished) first year, I can't easily get to uni for the graduation ceremonies.
So, I hope everyone enjoyed tour, and that those of you I won't see enjoy their lives, and I hope to meet up with you all one day.
Have fun, everyone! See you all soon (hopefully)!

OH MY GOD! THIS IS SO GOOD!
As you can see, I absolutely loved this film. The books were amazing, it has to be said, and lots of people were worried about the film, but it was so good.
After fans of the books/radio/TV series have argued about the casting of Mos Def (A black american rapper) as Ford Prefect, he came across really well.
It was nice to see Douglas Adam's book on the big screen, and it was still very like the book. Lots of the "classic" gags from his written work were still there (eg: Petunias and a Sperm Whale), but not all. This was a shame, but as we all know, to put the whole book into 2-ish hours is no mean feat.
The one thing that slightly irritated me was the love story. It doesnt appear in the books/radio/TV series, but is made a very big thing in the film. It gets my back up. But even Douglas himself admitted it would have to be included if a film was ever made, so here it is.
So, in summary, GO AND SEE THIS FILM.
Weather you are a first time hitchhiker or a dedicated fan, you will definately enjoy this.
And just remember 2 things:
- Always Remember Where Your Towel Is.
- DON'T PANIC!

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!

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.
