Having a PC with broadband connection, good sound system and hi-def big screen makes being DJ at the party as easy as clicking links on this page.

Harry (Dirty Harry) Callahan uttered the immortal words, “Ah Ah, I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five?   Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself.   But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question:  'Do I feel lucky?'  Well, do ya punk?
