Got a couple of real retro things for the kids for xmas :

This for my boy (used to have it when I was little - took ages to find out what it was called!)

And this for my girl (who's a bit older) -

In the past 6 months I bought back (nearly all) of my record collection from 93-96. Bought 160+ records off discogs & ebay, and a few from Oxfam! Ouch to the wallet.

Sold my technics and record collection in 2004 to fund house purchase, regretted ever since, tried digital mixing, didn't like it, so went out and hunted it all on discogs.

Have stopped on the records for now, now putting cash aside to get the technics back.

Trainers. All of the original Adidas Torsions, a pair of Nike Air Stab, a pair of Air Tech Challenge IIs in green, and a pair of the original Red Air Max 1. There are prob some more that I've forgotten about.
I had some of that Britons space stuff as a kid. It's probably at my mums somewhere.
