The Magic Box’s two newest visitors seem odd even by the high standards of oddness that the Magic Box possess. A warlock and a little teddy bear carry flags, crosses of St George no less, look odd at anytime but today at least there is a reason, for it is St George’s Day and a part of the Magic Box will be forever England. That part being that darkness under the stairs, into which the warlock disappears. The little teddy bear follows the warlock but then stops and sniffs the air, he senses the aroma of cookies. He then drops his flag and scuttles off to the counter where the ever kind and generous tarasApprentice had left some munchies for the little fellow

DSOAA: I have to agree with you that Tru needs to smile more, especially seeing how Eliza has such a nice smile. I’m glad to see that she’s finally got herself a car too, even if it is an old SAAB. But I do like the colour ~ strawberry red. I know that Michelle Trachtenberg made a film called “Eurotrip”, don’t know if that’s the film that your referring to.

Gothic: I quite like the Rasmus’ "in the shadows” video, they show it quite a bit on Kerrang! tv (channel 819 on NTL cable). The song kinda grows on you too. One that I like is Bowling for soup’s “Girl all the bad guys like”, I like how the video pokes fun at Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff” ~ and just what is a two way?

Dogtrot: Belated Happy Birthday wishes. I hope that your day was filled with joy and happiness and stuff like that. Oh and presents – mustn’t forget those.

TarasApp: Yay, well done Prince! Who’d have thought that he was denied top spot by the awesome “Mower Enslavers Die! The very sublime best of Lownmower Deth” ~ what ? What do you mean I’m dreaming again?

Okay, I know that you have waited all week for this. As you should know – and if not why – today is St George’s Day and F♥ith appreciation day. In honour of this most joyous of days (well it would be if we didn’t have to go to work – no day off for us) this week’s Rack’s track of the week is….All of my love by Led Zeppelin

This is a track taken from the last studio album that Zeppelin produced prior to the death of drummer John Bonham. Led Zep are in my opinion the second greatest band produced by this country (top five are 5)The Who 4)The Beatles 3)The Rolling Stones 2)Led Zeppelin 1)Lawnmower Deth) and “In through the outdoor” ,their last album proper, sees them experimenting with synthesizers. It does wear a little thin on tracks like "Carouselambra" by works okay on the slick AOR favourite that is “All my love”
I must admit that I haven’t the foggiest what the lyrics are about, just why would Planty sing about chasing feathers in the wind is anybodies guess. There is a rumour that it’s all to do with some mysterious user of the dark arts and his love for a dark haired assassin of the undead, can’t think who that would be. It’s worth pointing out that whilst this album is over looked in favour of Zep’s earlier works (I must admit Led Zep II is still my favourite of theirs), this album was the first by a rock band to debut at No 1 on the billboard album charts. Much of the album is the work of Robert Plant and John Paul Jones as the usual driving force behind Zep, the guitar warlock Jimmy Page, was battling drugs at the time. It’s probably for this reason that the album is less guitar orientated than the earlier works, but none the less one that you should purchase to see a different side to one of Rock’s true great legends.

Right, I was gonna sign off with a piece by one of England’s greatest play writes, Bill Spokeshaver, but unfortunately Teddy has left the book I was going to quote from behind. So you’ll have to make do with this from William Shakespeare. Don’t be too hard on him, he’s a young lad with a bright future… take it away Will..

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,— This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England

Take care all!!
