You read my mind, Piggie! I, of course, was the one who sent Cerise the "Sleepwalk" footage and whatever else I had! (Actually, I have to give Mr. X credit. If it weren't for him, I'd have nothing to give!) I also was the one who instigated the whole thing!!! laugh

(Oh, it's alright... it was my pleasure.) wink

I won't mention the countless hours I spent copying/editing and titling those 3 DVDs I did in the 1st place then...which I assume you put in the package for Cerise, Ash.

Honestly, you 2 have no shame! wink

Mrs X, firstly, the two dvd's I sent you were copies of my own [Mine For Life 1 & 2]. They weren't dvd's that were copied from someone else. Therefore, this 'Incomplete' set you mention is actually 'Totally Incomplete' as I never sent you any of that particular set.
Yes, I did get copies of Flips 3 discs and put them with the other 8 Ultravox dvd's I have. I have two dvd's that are entirely Foxx/Vox related but the MFL disc was the only one you knew about and subsequently asked for. As a little surprise I also enclosed the MFL2 dvd for you. I'm a tad surprised that you seemed disappointed by only receiving two dvd's from me even though I sent them to you as a goodwill gesture.

If you're after the Foxx/Vox dvd then I'm sure Flip will go to the trouble of sending you a copy if you ask nicely. smile

<sigh...>

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I appreciate all that you've done and I love the DVD's! Don't get me wrong!! cry

Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought the third one was part of that set or whatever. But it's OK! I got what I originally asked for, and thank you for including MFL2!! I'm so sorry if I sounded ungrateful. I am most certainly not! Again, this was just a big misunderstanding on my part, and I sincerely, deeply, and humbly apologise. Thank you very much for everything, Ash. It was very nice of you.

I feel like a complete heel... sad

Bloody hell Piggy. eek You did 'n all. laugh

Flip - sorry I should have checked with you before copying the DVDs you sent me but didn't think you'd mind as it was for CP and it was the MFL DVD I had sent you. Don't worry though I haven't made any further copies nor will I. You have sole copyright on that one. smile

No, don't be daft Mike. wink If I had the time and resources to copy DVDs I would, but I deleted all the stuff off me HD recorder once it was written to DVD and I don't have a disk copier. Doesn't bother me if you (or Ash) copy them on. smile

Cheers Squire, I reckon the more people on here that get a copy of these dvd's the better. I don't mind copying and sending on to others as it's nice to share with mates on here. I can't understand why anyone wouldn't want to share copies of their stuff really, but, each to their own eh.

Thid dvd sharing has taken off in quite a big way and that's not just down to me for starting it but to everyone else who's contributed.

Thanks to Mike and Flip for their contributions and long may it continue wink

Hey Mike, it'll take ya weeks to listen to them boots a sent yer pal biglaugh

Erm...I know I shouldn't ask, but...could I possibly trouble anyone for a copy of the FoxxVox DVD's? I will happily give anything in return. We now have a DVD burner too (and I have the Mine For Life DVD's - Thanks Ash!) so I can contribute to the spreading of the love! lurve

Hey! Im the last one to join the forum and I am curious to check out your new stuff!

1984 was a strange year. Midge & Annabel Giles, Bob & Paula used to sit in the kitchen all night. Bob loudly rubbished Ultravox in front of me many times, saying we were burnt out and finished.
PLEASE BRACE YOURSELVES FOR THE FOLLOWING VENOM CAPSULES.
This coming from a man that needed Live Aid to revive his already fledging career. As it happened, it didnt cos when music is poor, it does not really matter if you have a "holy" aura about you haha.

Quote:
Midge was laying him self open so as to be used by Bob, who was pretty powerful in his mouthy way, as Bob new that Midge lacked confidence in his own talent.
Well, well. How interesting. Annabel was hardly the quiet, mild type. A pretty girl made of steel and burning ambition that saw Midge as her passport to fame. Just like St Bob, she has only ever been able to get "bit parts" on tv and has always came across like a put on posh prat. False people piss me off.

Quote:
As well as the fantastic work Band Aid/Live Aid did for charity, and I applaud that, the Band Aid project gave him the confidence to s--t on Ultravox the group that made him.
That is so typical of bands internal politics. Ego, self promotion, false horizons, the need to be revered... I work as a music journalist and promotion officer for underground acts and it goes on everywhere, no matter the level of the band or the music genre. It's sad but I guess the music industry is downright fascist. One last thing that I have noticed, however, is that Midge's solo stuff was diluted and never made me reach the same heights that Ultravox did. Straight up. No shit. I have been a musician for many years too so I am not just spewing crap for the sake of it but never mind.

Billy's post was a small eye opener, I would need to read his book and Midge's and everybody else's...

Not wishing to recreate a sh*t-slinging session again regarding Billy Currie on this forum, but it was obvious to all who had some common sense that there was a lot of foundation and reason [not excuse] for Billy's recent comments on his website regarding the LIVE AID dvd release. Even Billy's comments above may annoy, shock, stagger certain people on this forum but I'm glad he's put his ten pence worth in the mixer. There's lots of contrasting opinions, accusations etc and whether or not anything becomes of this is another matter. Again, I'm as happy as anyone that Billy did appear and speak up. Now, not trying ti lick William's arse or nowt a must say that I personally have always thought Billy was more talented as a musician than Midge ever was.
Don't get me wrang tho'.....av got plenty o' time for 'Some' of Midge's tunies, but not many.

A great popular 'Misconception'. The opinion that a 'Frontman' is the most popular and talented band member....no thanks !!!

On a first visit to Midge's chatroom the other night I found it occupied by seven guests, all ladies <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" /> The pig joins in and immediately felt like a thorn atween sivven rose buds shocked The subject matter was suddenly Billy vs Midge vs TALENT. On waiting my turn and then giving my opinion [ as above, biased towards Billy] I was strangely challenged with an air of anger by one young damsel who fired the opening salvo.....

"Well, has Billy Currie had a solo number one hit like Midge has, I THINK NOT. No way is he more talented than Midge"

To which I replied.......

"So then, your opinion leads me to think that a person who has a number one hit is more talented than a person who hasn't had a one, yes ???
Well, if that's the case, JOE DOLCE has had a number one hit, ULTRAVOX never did [and we all know why <img border="0" alt="[Pissed]" title="" src="graemlins/pissed.gif" /> ] My point being....does that make JOE DOLCE more talented than ULTRAVOX ??/

[b]I THINK NOT
I rest my case wink

Finally, there's no particular message about what I've just said. Only, the world revolves on opinions and differences. You can't please everyone all the time eh. Some people will agree with Billy's comments, others may not.
One things for sure though, it makes bluddy gud readin......

HEY BILLY, WIPE THOSE CUBAN HEELS ON THE RED CARPET SQUIRE wink

Keep it up sunna !!!! <img border="0" alt="[Angel]" title="" src="graemlins/angel.gif" /> [/b]
How interesting is it reading through the archives! I have to laugh - yes that is so dumb re number ones v talent - I think I can guess where that came from - having hung out round the forums a while ho hum......
