LIMITED INTEREST Re: Public Image Limited The recent PiL tour? Doesn't interest me unless Keith Levene is involved. He is the genius behind PiL. Priceless, UK Comment posted at ASTRO BOY WONDER Re: Astro Boy I disagree [with our recent two star review of this film. I saw this when visiting relatives in the US over the holidays and loved this movie. It has so much heart, the animation is superb, and the story really pulls you in. In fact, it's my favourite animated movie. I had no idea who Astro was and now I love him! Polterkatt, London Comment posted at

NICHE INTEREST RATE Re: Cult Fiction Movies shop opens in Edinburgh I cant understand why a lot of the films this shop specialises in haven’t been released. For customers, HMVs are no good and neither are Blockbusters. Totally useless. Lester, Birmingham Comment posted at

STAND DELIVERS Re: The Stand I visited The Stand recently.

LETTER OF THE FORTNIGHT FASHION VICTIM Re: STHLM ‘go away to come home’ (photography exhibition by Jannica Honey) That was a long time coming. Super Jannica! Not so sure of journalism that suggests fashion doesn't have substance, though. That is just bad research! Retro Heads, London Comment posted at

THE LETTER OF THE ISSUE WILL RECEIVE ONE BOTTLE OF THE BLACK GROUSE WHISKY Smoky and Smooth a marriage of fine peated Scotch malt whiskies and The Famous Grouse

Although late on stage, a great afternoon’s entertaiment was delivered by Stu & Garry. Fantastic use of the audience and superb ad lib skills. Mick, Derby Comment posted at SCREEN SAVIOUR Re: The best film websites I enjoyed reading your recent article on the best film websites. I think that would also be useful to your readers. It’s an excellent site for cult films. Vision123, Swansea Comment posted at

BUYING INTO IT Re: 'Use us or lose us' challenge by Scottish independent food shops Is it time for the independents to play the loyalty card? This site examined the reward card and loyalty schemes run by a wide variety of retailers. llion, Llanrwst Comment posted at HAPPY JAPPY Re: Olivia Irvine & Fiona Jappy This is a really nice exhibition. The work of both artists is quite different but they work well together. Olivia Irvine's work is

quite magical and dream like. Fiona Jappy's work is quite dark and moody. Very good though. It's certainly worth a look. Magpie, Edinburgh Comment posted at

FREE MARKET GARDENING Re: More for less: Events It's official: guerrilla gardening is better than sex. In fact, it's better than all free activities. See: for more Guerrilla Gardening Edinburgh Comment posted at ACE OF BASS Re: Sub Club Undoubtedly the best club in Scotland for up-close-and- personal connection with the DJs. As Dave Clarke said, ‘It's like a huge living room’. A place to go to and tune in and come out wringing wet wanting more. Legendary. Simmo, Glasgow Comment posted at

LIVE FLESH Re: Flesh and Heatherette I was at this gig. Flesh were awesome and frontwoman Sharon Martin is fantastic. Definitely one to watch in 2010! LiveMusicLover, Glasgow Comment posted at
