Drugstore Film Club - we recommend:
* GOMORRA * by Matteo Garrone
Winner of the GrandPrix at Cannes 2008, this is a compelling, incredible film, that left me shaking and reeling.
Full synopsis + info on the wiki:
Set in the harsh and moral-free world of a mafia controlled Naples' suburb - the film tracks down the slippery and crooked paths of different characters trapped in its underbelly.
Don't be put-off by its mafioso setting, this is a far cry from the Godfather's velvet clad glamorous set-pieces: it's as fast, brash and dry, as Sicily itself. It feels and looks very real indeed.
From the island that gave us both Bellini and Pirandello, director Mateo Garrone lays bare the putrid entrails of humanity at its lowest.
Essential viewing.

Tinkle tinkle mini-mouse star - (yep..., another Ebay fuck-up)
I love Ebay, it's a treasure trove for the financially challenged bargain hunter.
An adventure that often starts with 'ink replacement+HPF380', but somehow ends with a 'commit to buy - vintage Snoopy bottle-opener'.
Soooo cute (ebay lingo), how can anyone resist?
There, all in favour of the impulsive, the superfluous and the ridiculous, rise and bid NOW.
Band just started getting a live set together and I was looking for some bits and bobs of percussion.
