Barnes & Mullins 'The Bowley' Ukulele

About 5 months back I decided to invest in an up-market ukulele. You can have a lot of fun with the cheap ones, but as with any musical instrument, you very much get what you pay for. I did a lot of research and finally settled on a Barnes and Mullins model called 'The Bowley'.

When I think of Spain, I don't tend to think of zombies. Tonight's film caught me well and truly off-guard.

REC is a wobbly camcorder first person thriller. Yeah, I know what you're thinking... I was thinking it too... but bear with me... it might just be worth your while...
