I'm a big fan of Jimmy Eat World. I had most of their albums on CD, but I wanted to get all albums, EPs and live albums on CD. I got these, and then saw some signed copies, and thought I'd get those too. I then thought I'd get 12" LPs of all albums, as they seemed like quite a nice thing to have, and I got the ones that were easy to come by (some are on Amazon for a few quid, some are, well a bit rarer and a bit more expensive). I then ended up getting 7" singles, Japanese imports of CDs and advance/promo CDs, and even signed 12" LPs and unreleased demo 12" LPs. There's even a couple of cassette tapes in there. I have practically everything I can get my hands on, and there's some pretty rare and collectible items here, which I'm glad I managed to get hold of.
I'm not going to upload photos of everything, but you can see a few photos here, and if you want a picture of any particular item, let me know.
Anybody who knows me well knows that Jimmy Eat World are my favourite band in the whole world ever. There's no other band where I can have such a big back catalogue and can listen to it all without not wanting to skip any, or with so many songs that I love and really connect with. Until last year I'd never seen them live though.
They played in Norwich in 2010 (I didn't go as I didn't want to go alone), and in 2011 they played two shows in London playing two of my favourite albums (well, favourites now, one of them not so much at the time) back to back in full (which I didn't even know happened until recently), but as they had a new album out in 2013, I had to make sure I saw them. And I did.
Only PHP at the moment. Can't focus on too many things at once!
Not really, not like some others. It used to be one of my favourites but not anymore, it's probably their most well known song but I think it's a bit overrated, no way is it their best song.
Dunno really, hard to say. I like where I am at the moment but I don't really know any massive companies that are big on PHP. I used to want to be a mechanic though and if I changed what I do and did that, I'd want to work at BMW.
Look at existing code, see what it does and how it works. Add stuff, change stuff, break stuff. Write little scripts that do one thing just for the sake if using a certain piece of code or new technique. Learn by doing.
I've been to two, going to another one tomorrow and another week after next :) Last two were amazing.
I do, I have a liking for BMWs, purely because we've had them as family cars since forever, I've had one, they look great (especially older ones) and are great to drive.
