I found my first porn mag in those bushes on the right. 3rd July, 1976 I think it was.
Did it feature the Boston dingbat?
If that's a euphemism for an unkempt lady garden, yes.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

When we were kids one of the lads had this picture from a porn mag of a woman known as the Boston Dingbat (could've been wombat) who had the biggest beef curtains ever. Made Dumbo's ears look tiny.

Yep. Wee Hes would often practice his ultrasonic bat calls while applying ghoulish make-up in his room, then go out and lurk in bushes, scaring the wee lassies until his mam called him in for his tea.

(Those are bats in the upper centre of the photo, not actually electrical connectors on the tramlines...)

Thank fuck that KISS came along when they did, and made that shit somewhat acceptable - otherwise he might have growed-up, badly liked, morally depraved, and seeking acceptance on internet forums that spend an inordinate amount of time focusing on a certain band's last album... :shifty:

More of an audio geek question, I suppose, but I want to stack my cable box on top of my home theatre box. How much of a gap do I need between them for a safe amount of ventilation?

Mine are sat directly on top of each other and I've never had a problem. I would suggest that an inch or two could do no harm though regarding heat.

Okay, thanks. I can space them an inch right now but was curious whether I should invest in some kind of spacer to increase that. I suspect the cable box will generate the greater heat and it's on top, so I hope that'll all be adequate.
