    Radio 4 has announced that it's seeking the 8 discs that listeners would like to be cast away with.

    In light of this, what 8 discs, book and luxury would my fellow Arrsers like to be cast away with?

    Mine are;

    Alternative Ulster - Stiff Little Fingers
    Dark End Of The Street - Moving Hearts
    Apache Tears - Johnny Cash
    I Useta Lover - Saw Doctors
    Telephone in Her Car - Weddings Parties Anything
    A New England - Billy Bragg
    Too Much Too Young - Specials
    Gyda Gwen - Catatonia.

    Book - It's not yet been produced, but a Terry Pratchett anthology would be good.

    Luxury - Either (a) A constantly refilled drinks cabinet, or Kate Rusby with a guitar.

    Over to you.

    (A bit of a cliché but) To Kill A Mockingbird.

    Solar powered, lappy with web (read only) access (preferably Mac).

    P.S. I like these threads as it gives me targets to, erm, sample from the virtual world.

    Megadeth-rust in peace


    Metallica-Ride the lightening

    Book, omnibus edition of a Song of ice and fire.

    Luxury......a boat to get off and on my private getaway Island.
  12. I had the thought and I thought to share....enjoy the gift.
  13. Bah, whatever, cool mate.
  14. So lets get this right. You are going to take Alizee with you so she can do the fishing. Are the weapons to do her in and butcher her if she is crap at fishing? Good idea as at least you will have some food. I cant work out why the sat phone though, is it so you can arrange for a replacement if French fishing skills are not up to scratch?
  15. By the time I'd finished with her the tidy litle frog nymphomaniac would be warbling like a scratched wax Edison cylinder of Edith Piaf with a mouth full of rancid monk and if I ever got really really bored with that and the island proved to be free of large game, well killing french people does still hold it's attraction.
