5 tips for a most-powerful weekend!

Hey folks, here it is. Friday 15th July's top five. It's my consolidated list of all things awesome this week. Feel free to share it around to whomever you think appropriate!

Here we go;

1) Video of the week;

Hundred Reasons - Silver, live.

I always prefer the live videos, that's what the music is supposed to be, not polished, auto-tuned and quantised. I love this band, they were important in my formative years. Every album was ace. This track is featured on the album Ideas Above Our Station.

2) G̶i̶g̶ Show of the week;

Soundbreaking on Sky Arts.

Excellent insight into the evolution of recording, a great history lesson in music. Highly recommended.

3) Quote of the week;

“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

4) Documentary of the week;

It's got to be Anvil. It's a heartbreaking and heart warming story about a metal band started in the 80's. Some real good lessons in there too.

5) Thing of the week;

Sleep Master - Sleep Mask

I'd always though sleep masks were for long plane journey's and old people, but I was wrong. This one in particular goes over your ears, so if you live in a loud and bright town centre (like me) you can get a good nights sleep. Not cheap, but worth every penny. 

Speak to you Monday.
