Our First Challenger! Thoughts From West Five….

Oasis-boxset Whats the story morning glory

Let’s be honest, you know that the new Oasis Box Set of What’s The Story Morning Glory is a bit pricey when you see Roman Abramovich coming out of HMV wiping his brow and muttering to himself about “daylight robbery” and “they must think I am made of money…”.

And this is from a man who bought Fernando Torres, Winston Bogarde, Adrian Mutu and Andrei Shevchenko.

Such was the thinking behind my quest to see how else I could use that £116.99 and embark upon a vinyl buying challenge…

But in addition to this wilful and some might say extravagant expenditure, I was curious to see how other bloggers might react to the challenge, and so I approached a handful to see what they would do with the same amount of cash.

They don’t have to spend the money as I am doing. If they choose, they can just see what *in theory* might be bought. They may even have their own ideas as to how to use the money – perhaps for a more worthy cause than buying mere slabs of tuneful plastic….

The first fellow blogger to join me is John Sills who writes a blog under the name of “Thoughts From West Five”and very enjoyable it is too.

I won’t steal his thunder, but John has even prepared a way for you to listen to what he has chosen…..

Thank you John!

Oh, and if you like top ten lists, Thoughts From West Five has a good list of Top Ten Air Guitar Songs here…

    Thanks for the plug, Steve. That Air Guitars ten got 7,000 hits when I first pubished it, as it got onto the Freshly Pressed page for a while. It still gets more hits than just about anything else I do! Shows the appeal of the music around the world. I also put together a follow up blog of air guitar favourites that other people suggested. There’s some good stuff on it, some of which I didn’t know. The top two, though, had been serious contenders for my list…http://tfw5.com/2012/04/28/my-top-ten-air-guitar-the-alt-selection-readers-choice/

      7,000 hits! I have never managed that holy grail of WordPress blogging, the “Freshly Pressed” title. Congratulations!
