|A Penury Saved is a Penury Earned|

Feedbacque, Aslington Church Ringers
The debut CD of this bell-ringing musical group. Their fiery arrangements prove that the clashing of church bells can achieve the same crackling feel as the electric rock guitar. The showcase track is a full church-bell rendition of Eric Johnson's Cliffs of Dover, but the disc covers a range of styles from classic rock to industrial. Then, in the closing track, the Ringers return to their roots with a twenty-minute example of change-ringing, a small part of the ten-bell peal which they performed to critical acclaim in Autumn.
Talavi Fleshless Grapes. Like seedless grapes, but more so. The skin
contains juice and nothing else. Talavi Genex Labs has produced red,
white, and gold varieties of these grapes.
Peelable Markers from Crayanti. Looks like a standard magic marker. You write or draw an image, wait a few moments, and carefully peel the design off whatever you drew it on. The ink dries to a tough plastic rather like ColorForms; it adheres to any smooth surface and can be easily removed again. A special solvent spray attaches it permanently.
Eyeflash. A small device which comes with a pair of eyeglass frames; can also be removed and attached to existing glasses. Generates a narrow beam of light which moves to illuminate whatever your eyes are focussed on. This gives the illusion of a well-lit area with minimal use of power. A simple extension of eye-pointing technology. The lightweight battery-pack is good for 12 hours of continuous use.
Car Masks. Large, lightweight mylar sheets which you can apply to
the front and sides of your car, printed with the caricature of a
famous person. More expensive masks have dangling or inflatable
extensions to simulate hair, ears, or other appendages. So far, the
highways have seen comedians, dancingers, cartoon characters, and
politicians both popular and unpopular whizzing along; more are
spotted every day. All major media corporations are quickly swinging
into action to license their characters.
Car Masks are legal in most districts as long as they do not cover the windshield, although the outlying towns of the West are considering a ban.
