FS: Feather Artist Club RG + 40 blades

I bought a used Feather Artist Club along with 40 blades (20 feather professional; 20 professional super) from Dr Chris a while back. Despite my best intentions I still haven't got round to using it believe it or not, and probably never will looks like! I have therefore decided to sell it on and hav...

I've honestly never understood the appeal of the nano
it's both cheaper and smaller. i have both a classic and a nano. the nano i carry with me, the classic is permanently plugged into my music system back at home. all i want it to do is play music.

it's amazing how many people, particularly our usa brethern, still believed in the lance myth and defended him right up until last year. all the evidence that he was doped to the gills has been out there for years for all to see. anyone with half a brain and objectivity would have figured it out lon...

the original fall and rise of reginald perrin with leonard rossiter is absolutely one of my favourite sit coms. i have all of the series on DVD. however i don't care much for the modern remake with martin clunes in it.

So much great history and they highlight health services? WTF? That would be like the US celebrating Social Security -- not exactly riveting stuff. How about Agincourt or the Battle of Britain? Nope, we get health services and Peter Pan. I'm scratching my head. this is hard to explain if you are no...

froome did not and will not challenge wiggins. all of this talk is media hype. although it's the individual who gets the glory in the end, people seem to forget that cycling is very much a team sport. it's not every man for himself. there is also a very strong tradition of hierarchy and sacrifice in...

ron wood is technically a much superior guitarist compared to keef and it doesn't surprise me that he is given the leads to do live. that said, keff has definitely got the raw mojo going on in his playing. plus he wrote the damn thing!
