Ya all hipsters ya all.


I have these square cheapos for ages now.



Now get off my lawn!



EDIT : I just stumbled on thread on TZ-UK.


Seems that half of TZ also ordered Casino Royale and its siblings..


Someone at Argos is probably scratching head confused


"... Lets see... Okay 15 units sold at friday..

Wait.. Wat? 1500 units sold!?

What was that about!?"

^^^Absolutely spot on! However, they’ll be scratching their heads even more when they can’t shift the extra units they ordered in from Casio on the strength of this weekend’s sales figures! :clap:

That just means you can order a spare when they put them on clearance for a Tenner.

For the Canadians on the board, Amazon.ca has them on today for $26 CAD. I might have one in my cart.

Well... I could live with FNM limited edition with their logo and Mike Pattons scream as one of the alarms... I would prefer the one from "Caffeine" in the morning as snooze alarm : "YOU CANT KILL IIIITHHHJHHHHGRHHH..."

(cant link the YouTube from phone, for full pleasure choose the live footage of the song from 1995...if there is such a thing as controlled mental break down in song this is it...)

Off topic... I saw interview with FNM a while ago, about "Easy" cover..

Since they also did Black Sabbath cover, their concerts started to attract metalhedz.. And in the end they announce "and now cover of a great song from 70ies..." and crowd goes GROOOOOOOOOARGH... And then comes the Commodores tune... [FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY]

The Casio Royale is in stock at all 6 Argos shops within a 12 mile or so radius from me. If they are getting low at the mail order warehouses there's still a bunch in the shops. Trouble is the website doesn't say how many in each shop, may be just ones or twos. I might just grab another one for modding from my nearest shop and maybe one as a little pressie for my son :lol:

I blame all of you. I ordered a cheap, plastic, digital watch that I didn't know I wanted, because of all of you.
