Re: Badge making machine

I use http://www.mybadges.co.uk for our badges at the shop. Having done a review of merchandising and suppliers recently and giving consideration to the cost to do it in-house, they appeared to be the best value for money and comparable when considering the costs of purchasing all the badge bits sep...

Re: Pockets is famous???? no..... really??

You should cover Merry Christmas (I don't want to fight tonight) by the Ramones!!

I think a cover of that would sound good on the kazookeylele - maybe it's not well known enough for the Tonight show though?

Re: Pockets is famous???? no..... really??

The Tonight Show does have a talent co-ordinator called Bryan Branly. The NBC studios they fil it in are in Burbank California, which is also the area code of the telephone number you have been given.

May be fake, but can't rule out it being real either.

I'll be there from 11am to help out, but didn't want to put my name down for a shift as I am not comfortable serving alcohol (i hate asking for id and being asked by smartasses for my own id in return!!).

I will be there to help set up and help collect empty cups though.

I have a few kicking around that from last year or so, not sure how many though.

I'm not sure what state they are in, but will try and get them to you.

As I am pretty busy at the moment, it may probably be best to mail them to you - Ryan, should I mark the envelope for your attention?
