    If you're worried about the price going up then you can do a deposit scheme where you pay £60 now and the rest before june i think.

    My freind is making a monster suit with a camera embedded in the forhead I believe.

    I was thinking about going as a copper.

    Is there a theme?

    Rebel MC & Tenor Fly - Born Again (Serial Killaz Remix)

    The above track was one first suggested by Arcadia. However I tried using Modestep's 'Sunlight', the choice got nods of approval but had to be abandoned because of rights issues, so it was back to plan A.
