Ace Of Spades - "Motörhead" - Play this track here.

¿Whats this iPod Shuffle set all about? Read about it here

Ace of Spades" is perhaps the best known song by the English band Motörhead. The 7" vinyl single was released in October 1980 as a preview to the album Ace of Spades and autumn tour. Bronze Records also released a 12" vinyl pressing in special Christmas picture sleeves, limited to 50,000 copies. The picture of the band in Santa outfits used on the cover was taken at the Aylesbury Fair, while the band were on tour.

Its a staple of their live shows and I have probably seen it played as encore three or four times. For the lyrics, Lemmy said he "used gambling metaphors, mostly cards and dice - when it comes to that sort of thing, I'm more into the one-arm bandits actually, but you can't really sing about spinning fruit, and the wheels coming down"

In March 2005, Q magazine placed it at no 27 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks, stating "This song has an intro which wouldn't be out of place ushering in the end of the world". In 2009 it was named both the 10th greatest hard rock and metal song of all time by VH1.

Up to this point the band consisted of the original trio of Lemmy on bass &lead vocals, "Fast" Eddie Clarke on lead guitar and Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor on drums.

In April 2003, Saddam's whereabouts remained in question during the weeks following the fall of Baghdad and the conclusion of the major fighting of the 2003 Iraq war. Various sightings of Saddam were reported in the weeks following the war but none was authenticated. At various times Saddam released audio tapes promoting popular resistance to the U.S.-led occupation.

Saddam was placed at the top of the U.S. list of "most-wanted Iraqis". By July 2003, his sons Uday and Qusay and 14-year-old grandson Mustapha were killed in a three-hour gunfight with U.S. forces.

On the 14th December 2003, U.S. administrator in Iraq L. Paul Bremer announced that Saddam Hussein had been captured at a farmhouse in ad-Dawr near Tikrit. Bremer presented video footage of Saddam in custody. The enduring image of the capture however, was a tabloid photo of the ex-leader in his underpants. The release of the pictures is certainly a violation of the Geneva Convention.

'Pants' is a suitable metaphor for the shaky evidence that originally was used to justify the conflict, which has had devastating effects on the Iraqi people, hundreds of servicemans families and handed Al-Qaeda the perfect environment to recruit for more global jihad. Well done politicians.

The number of completed, numbered piano sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven. 32 is in the title and lyrics of the song "32 Footsteps" by 'They Might Be Giants'.

In the Kabbalah, there are 32 Kabbalistic Paths of Wisdom. One of the central texts of the Pāli Canon in the Theravada Buddhist tradition, the Digha Nikaya, describes the appearance of the historical Buddha with a list of 32 physical characteristics.

Thirty2 is the number of teeth of a full set of teeth in an adult human, including wisdom teeth. Also the size of a databus in bits: 32-bit
The size, in bits, of certain integer data types, used in computer representations of numbers. IPv4 uses 32-bit (4-byte) addresses ASCII and Unicode code point for space

Its the code for international direct dial phone calls to Belgium.

Carlos Alberto Tévez (born Carlos Alberto Martínez; 5 February 1984) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for English club Manchester City in the number 32 shirt. He has previously played for Boca Juniors, Corinthians, West Ham United and Manchester United. He transferred to Manchester City from United in the 2009 summer transfer window, becoming the first player to move between the two rival clubs since Terry Cooke in 1999.

His energy and goal scoring rate has since made him an indispensable player for the club in the eyes of fellow players and media alike. He was promoted to captain at the beginning of the 2010–11 season by manager Roberto Mancini. In 2011, Tevez sought a transfer away from Manchester, citing family reasons and Sergio Agüero was drafted in as a replacement. However he remains a City player after his family moved back to Manchester with manager Roberto Mancini believing Tévez would stay for the foreseeable future.

Howard Devoto formed Magazine in the city of Manchester right after he left Buzzcocks. In early 1977 he met guitarist John McGeoch, then an art student, and they began writing songs, some of which would appear on the critically acclaimed 'Real Life' album. John McGeoch was the only original member to miss the reunion. He died in 2004 and was replaced by Noko on the tour, who had played with Devoto in the band Luxuria.

the fabulous Barry Adamson was on bass guitar. I have enjoyed his solo stuff for many years, including his 'Moss Side Story' and his soundtrack for David Lynch's 'Lost Highway'. The compilation 'The Murky World of Barry Adamson' is a good introduction to his music post mid-1980's.

No sell Out - "Malcolm X & Keith LeBlanc" - Play this track here.

¿Whats this iPod Shuffle set all about? Read about it here

I read the autobiography of Malcolm X in the late 1980's. It was a very moving book for me. One of a man coming out of criminality to lead his people, then to be betrayed by his peers.

Malcolm X (May 19th 1925 – February 21st 1965), was born Malcolm Little and also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz. He was an African-American Muslim minister, public speaker, and human rights activist. He was a courageous advocate for the rights of African Americans, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans. His detractors in his age of inequality accused him of preaching racism, black supremacy, antisemitism, and violence. He has been described as one of the greatest, and most influential, African Americans in history.

Keith LeBlanc started out as a session drummer with Sugarhill Records, early 1980's. He formed the Sugar Hill House Band with fellow Americans Doug Wimbish (bass) and Skip "Little Axe" McDonald (guitar), working with leading rap artists as The Sugarhill Gang (Rapper's Delight) and Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel on The Message and Freedom.

From his own 'Malcolm X No Sell Out', the first ever sampling record, on Tommy Boy Records (1983) to his involvement in creating the sound of funk noise giants Tackhead with Wimbish, McDonald and British dub producer Adrian Sherwood, he has gained recognition as one of the top and most innovative drummers/programmers around.

Tesco plc is a British international grocery and general merchandising retail chain headquartered in the Tesco House in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire. It is the UK's largest supermarket chain.

The chain was founded by Jack Cohen in 1919. The brand first appeared after Cohen bought a shipment of tea from T.E. Stockwell and he used those initials and added the first two letters of his own surname. The first Tesco store was opened in 1929 in Burnt Oak, Edgware, Middlesex.

During the 1950s and the 1960s Tesco grew organically, and also through acquisitions, until it owned more than 800 stores. Originally specialising in food and drink, it has diversified into areas such as clothing, electronics, financial services, telecoms, home, health, car and dental insurance, retailing and renting DVDs, CDs, music downloads, Internet services and software. It is the largest British retailer by both global sales and domestic market share, with profits exceeding £3 billion, and the third largest global retailer based on revenue, after Wal-Mart and Carrefour and second largest in profit behind Wal-Mart.

Tesco's UK stores are divided into six formats, differentiated by size and the range of products sold. Tesco Extra stores are larger, mainly out-of-town hypermarkets that stock nearly all of Tesco's product ranges. Exceptions include Hexham Extra, Kingston upon Hull Extra, Stevenage Extra, Wigan Extra, Grimsby Extra, Galashiels Extra, Slough Extra, Eastbourne Extra, Yeovil Extra and Burnley Extra, which are in the heart of the town centre and Cardiff Western Avenue Extra, Cardiff Pengam Green Extra and the one pictured here as a panorama, Warrington Extra are located in the inner-city) that stock nearly all of Tesco's product ranges.

Tesco Express stores are neighbourhood convenience shops, stocking mainly food with an emphasis on higher-margin products (due to small store size, and the necessity to maximise revenue per square foot) alongside everyday essentials. They are found in busy city centre districts, small shopping precincts in residential areas, small towns and on Esso petrol station forecourts. In Warrington alone no-one is more than 3 miles away from a Tesco.

I have a Tesco clubcard and the intelligence collected about my purchases, where they are made and how often is total. Such that at Christmas I generally get opening hours of the filling station in Scotland nearest to where I spend the festive season with my club card statement. Despite the fact that is the only time I generally fill up there. When George Orwell wrote about 1984 I think he had authority not supermarkets in mind.
