Megadeth at Rock City

by Administrator22. February 2008 20:55

This monday I went to see Megadeth at Rock City with Dave and Jim. It was a great gig, we arrived in time to see the last support act and set about quaffing ales until Dave Mustaine and the rest of Megadeth appeared. (Well, Dave was quaffing shandies due to having to take anti-biotics or some such medication for a month, and due to this offered to drive as well! Nice chap.)

They played tracks off the new album and many old favourites, including Wake Up Dead, Holy Wars and Peace Sells.

Here's a clip from the night that Dave found on YouTube:

Being old buggers we were all talking about the last time we were there watching Megadeth, in 1988! 20 years ago, and Dave saw them again there in 1993, billed as Vic and the Rattleheads.


More RPS

I noticed we had almost a full moon tonight, and a nice clear sky (bloody freezing though!) so I thought I'd get my big lens out and see what sort of shot I could get of the moon.

Not too bad I thought, although it was too cold to stay out and mess around with the settings for long. Click on the picture for other shots with different shutter speeds.


Hills, hills and more hills...

Last Sunday I went on RPS (Real Photo Sunday for people that don't read maneuvers with Drill Sergeant Sadler and his trusty sidekick Corporal Pluck. As it was a nice day we had all decided to go out with our cameras and try to get some nice shots.

It was decided to go to Edale, and Kinder Scout, and perhaps we might get some nice sunsets in the afternoon, we arrived at around half 3 in the afternoon and set off into the countryside.

Being the fit and healthy person that I am, I was soon left behind, huffing and puffing up the path up towards the bottom of a massive hill. When I had caught them up, they had decided to walk around the base of the hill (thank god) towards the side that still had light from the setting sun. So off we went, looking for anything interesting to shoot. There were some trees, some sheep, and lots and lots of hills. Oh and grass... and some more hills, as you can see:

By this time the sun had set quite a lot, and we decided to head back from the little path that wound around the side of this hill that even the sheep were having trouble with keeping on, and to set up on the path that would be easier to navigate once the sun had set.

Here's some of the shots that I got as the sun set and the moon appeared:

Even with the strenuous exercise (strenuous for me anyway!) it was a good afternoon, and I got to play with my camera (which hasn't happened that often recently). Just need to remember the settings etc when I eventually get out to use it again :)

Bullet For My Valentine - Tears Don't Fall

by Administrator3. February 2008 17:47

YouTube clips from the gig me and Dave went to last night. Bullet for my Valentine, Still Remains, and Skindred played at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall. Top gig, if you like shouty metal :) The second clip has better sound, but it's from a bit further away... Nearer than we were stood though :)

We were worried we might not make it with the crap weather, as it had started to snow a little when we were leaving Belper, but once on the A38 heading out of Derby it all cleared up and the roads were dry. Made it there and back in one piece and with time to get a couple of drinks in at the pub before chucking out time.
