Just an American Boy is a double-album soundtrack of Amos Poe's DVD documentary of Steve Earle touring in the United States and Canada in late 2002 and early 2003; most of the tracks were taken from two performances--in Toronto and in Bloomington, Indiana. Earle has not always had a straightforward relationship with his audiences--standing up in front of southern country crowds and proselytising against the death penalty isn't the easiest way to sell T-shirts--but it must have been doubly strange for a man of Earle's generally liberal sensibilities to be on the road after September 11, 2001. There weren't many people who wanted to hear a vaguely sympathetic song about Marin County Mujahid John Walker Lindh, but Earle wrote one and sang it (the title of this set is the opening line of "John Walker's Blues"). Just an American Boy includes many Steve Earle standards (among them "Copperhead Road", "Guitar Man" and a terrific "Christmas in Washington"), a rousing version of Nick Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love & Understanding" and several of Earle's lengthy between-song digressions on subjects ranging from capital punishment to trade unions. (The latter are much less of a trial than speeches by rock stars tend to be.) Earle's monologues are as neatly constructed as his songs, and there's more than a hint of his fellow Texan, the great Bill Hicks, in his accent and bleak wit. --Andrew Mueller

...When I started on my fitness craze last summer, I decided I needed to purchase some sports clothing to help me on my way as nothing in my wardrobe is sporty at all, so my partner treated me to a pair of adidas jogging bottoms and an adidas t-shirt.
The one pictured above is black, but you can get them in all sorts of colours, but I went for the white one with black stripes and logo. Looking...

...Nutmeg Slogan T-Shirts
I?ve purchased clothing from most supermarkets but we had never tried Nutmeg range from Morrisons. While shopping we came across a reduced line of their clothing and with items starting from a £1 I decided to have a look. We managed to pick up a lot of pieces for our two youngest children, and included in those bargains were these slogan T shirts. We have a number...
