    I couldn't agree more, the seller wants us to buy it without bothering to tell us what's on the album or with us having to do his job for him.

    Also, I buy a lot of vinyl from ebay and I'm just starting to get fed up with sellers thinking all vinyl is 'mint' and priceless, it seems to have become more frequent in the last month or two.

    Most sellers go by visual inspection I think and there's a great difference between looking good and playing good. I clean all my records on a Moth RCM and they look blemish free but can still have quite a bit of snap, crackle and pop in them. On the other hand I have some jazz pressings getting on for 80 years old that sound crisp and crystal clear. They took more care in the old days when sound was King!

    Then they went and made Elvis The King. Was that when it all started to go wrong?

    Software manufacturers who act like they own your PC. Latest MS update for Windows 10 took nearly two and a half hours (!) and happened when I didn't want it to, knocking me out for a morning. PC is now slower. And no, I don't want to replace Firefox with Edge so stop asking

    windows automatic fecking updates that totally destroy the operating system and require a Complete reinstall from scratch and all the hassle that entails even if everything is backed up.

    The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox
    In 4 parts without commercial interruption
    The revolution will not show you pictures of Nixon
    Blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John Mitchell
    General Abrams and Spiro Agnew to eat
    Hog maws confiscated from a Harlem sanctuary

    The revolution will not be televised

    The revolution will be brought to you by the Schaefer Award Theatre and
    will not star Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen or Bullwinkle and Julia
    The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal
    The revolution will not get rid of the nubs
    The revolution will not make you look five pounds
    Thinner, because The revolution will not be televised, Brother

    There will be no pictures of you and Willie Mays
    Pushing that cart down the block on the dead run
    Or trying to slide that color television into a stolen ambulance
    NBC will not predict the winner at 8:32or the count from 29 districts

    The revolution will not be televised

    There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down
    Brothers in the instant replay
    There will be no pictures of young being
    Run out of Harlem on a rail with a brand new process
    There will be no slow motion or still life of
    Roy Wilkens strolling through Watts in a red, black and
    Green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving
    For just the right occasion
    Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies, and
    Hooterville Junction will no longer be so damned relevant
    and Women will not care if Dick finally gets down with
    Jane on Search for Tomorrow because Black people
    will be in the street looking for a brighter day

    The revolution will not be televised

    There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock News
    and no pictures of hairy armed women Liberationists and
    Jackie Onassis blowing her nose
    The theme song will not be written by Jim Webb, Francis Scott Key
    nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom Jones, Johnny Cash
    Englebert Humperdink, or the Rare Earth

    The revolution will not be televised

    The revolution will not be right back after a message
    About a whitetornado, white lightning, or white people
    You will not have to worry about a germ on your Bedroom
    a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl
    The revolution will not go better with Coke
    The revolution will not fight the germs that cause bad breath
    The revolution WILL put you in the driver's seat
    The revolution will not be televised

    WILL not be televised, WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

    The revolution will be no re-run brothers
    The revolution will be live

    Wow that takes me back!

    I was thinking if they put a Guillotine on Capitol Hill and started lobbing off the heads of Congress, they could sell Pay-Per-View tickets and settle the National Debt!

    Agree - if capital punishments were to be held in public, you bet there would be crowds flocking to see them.

    You know I'm getting tired of this kid-centric world we live in. Why is it ok for kids to run round screaming in the pub when you just want a quiet pint, but not ok for me to have some fun in the wacky warehouse?

    Honestly they have it all their own way don't they.

    I think a lot of people my age are labelled "grumpy old men" because we are, and with good reason. When we were growing up adults were in charge. Now we're grown up it's the kids who are in charge. There was never a time when we were "boss".

    Still I had the last laugh. I did a shit in the ball pit.
