In advance of my birthday this month, my mother has paid for a couple of recently released music boxsets I wanted to get, and this is the first one I’ve received – the 30th anniversary of Def Leppard’s Hysteria album. So I thought I would do my first unboxing video before I actually listen to it and review the music.
This is the first guest post I’ve ever had on this blog, which is a nice way of marking the fact that I recently passed 100 posts. And it doesn’t have to be the last either – if any of my blogging friends would like to collaborate on something, especially those that I already follow and enjoy, then I’m open to ideas.
This post is from the Ability Superstore Blog, where they regularly post useful advice and links for disabled people on a variety of topics – in this case talking about accessibility at music festivals. I love music and going out and about, so this is a perfect topic for me.
This is being posted at the same time as a guest post by me on their site. It’s all about how I’ve grown in confidence over the years, so please go and check it out!
Thank you so much to Natalie for inviting me to do that, and for giving me permission to reproduce her post below in return. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
Summer’s here, the weather’s lovely and bright and hot, and so there’s no reason not to go out every weekend to see what the city has to offer. Especially when there are festivals and events on all the time too, there’s always something happening every week. A case in point is a weekend I spent at Alexandra Palace last month, where they had a couple of things going on. I’ll write more about it below, and link to all the videos I created, but here’s the Palace’s own video of highlights:
In this post I’m going to do a first listen review of the new album by Brian May & Kerry Ellis entitled Golden Days, released last Friday. I’m a big Queen fan, including their solo work, and have enjoyed Kerry’s previous albums too. So I’ve been really looking forward to this.
Now that I’ve listed everything in my current music and DVD collections, I can now do smaller posts on my latest purchases every so often, to show you what I’ve been buying And in October and November most years, in the run-up to Christmas, there are always a few new releases that I want to get.
I’ve already posted about the new DVDs I bought in my previous post, so this post is about the music I’ve recently acquired. Most of the music I get now is downloaded, but occasionally I’ll buy a physical set for one reason or another. So here’s the music I’ve got over the past couple of months – by Madness, Status Quo, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Howard Goodall, Derek & The Dominos, The Who, The Rolling Stones, and a little known band called Cherry Suede. Yes, I’ve been treating myself a little bit – but then I haven’t bought this much music for a while. It’s all come along at once!
This is a quick follow-up post and video to my DVD collection videos, showing the new releases I purchased during November 2016, including Star Wars, The Rolling Stones, Red Dwarf, Family Guy, Alan Davies, Josh Widdicombe and Tim Vine.
I thought I’d go through my DVD collection to show you what I have, and this video is part 12, looking at the rest of my music collection. Feel free to comment if you share any of my tastes. 🙂
