BBC Music' Axe Factor, Best Guitarist

The latest news just spreads on the net, stating about a new best guitarists list created by BBC 6 called the Axe Factor. Well, much like it's X-Factor show, the list looks pretty much of a popularity list of guitar players rather than best rock guitarist in the past 30 years??? The list amazingly put John Frusciante as the top player, not that I don't like John, but in what terms does he can be consider the best guitar player?

Saucony running shoes

Saucony running shoes are not as common as Nike running shoes. But after I have repeatedly seen Saucony shoe adverts on Runner’s world magazine and I have decided to give the shoes a try.(who said advertising doesn’t work?)

I intend to use them in my training for 2009 stanch art Nairobi marathon.

Although the sole looked more like that of a trail running shoe I just thought the shoe would be great for tarmac running. According to the manufacturer, the outsole features XT900 rubber compound in the heel. I don’t know what that means but I hope it makes running softer and easier.
