Musical Nostalgia

I was in the car today when “Kings Of The Wild Frontier” came on the radio. Adam Ant was my first musical hero, I thought he was awesome. I guess I was about 8 when I started buying his singles. Other bands from that era that impacted me in a big way include the Human League and Frankie Goes To … Read More

The End Of (Another) Era

The Sunday just passed should be the last time that Vikki and I attend a ComicCon/similar as a seller of sweary merchandise. And it is not a moment too soon. 2008 was when we first started doing conventions. The credit crunch happened and our sales dropped. We needed more of that folding green stuff (which isn’t really green and you … Read More

An Awkward Moment

Like most boys under the age of about 50, there isn’t much funnier than drawing a huge penis on something. Be it a forehead, a bible or an ancient chalk carving in an English hillside, us chaps have been representing our genitals anywhere and everywhere since time immemorial, me included. This activity is not big or clever but it is … Read More

Has Bodybuilding Gotten Too Big?

It’s a sad week for those of us that are into bodybuilding. As minority sports go, it has enjoyed it’s biggest resurgence in recent years since the 1970s when Arnold Schwarzenegger first appeared in the classic documentary, “Pumping Iron“. Thanks to the internet and YouTube, more and more people were being introduced to the strange world of bodybuilding. When I … Read More

Appetite For Life

“Appetite For Destruction”, the debut album from Guns n’ Roses, is now 30 years old. As someone who was “there” when it was released and witnessed the sweeping change it made across the rock landscape, this makes me feel really fucking old. The album still sounds as fresh today as it did upon release. It hasn’t dated a day. The … Read More

45 Not Out

It’s my birthday today (it’s OK, I know your present is lost in the post): 45 years old. I don’t think I look it and I don’t think I feel it. But, there it is. Somehow, I am 45. I used to be 20. Fuck it, I used to be 5. In fact, pick any number under 45 and I … Read More

Creating Memories

My brother, his wife and their young family are coming to visit us for a few days. Seeing our nephew and niece grow – becoming little people with their own opinions – is particularly fascinating. Not having children, I can only ever experience this third hand and find it intriguing how seemingly small events from their past have now affected … Read More

What's The Point?

I know, I know. Another bloody blog. Another irritating human being who has gone through some kind of enlightening and now thinks he needs to share his thoughts and knowledge with the world. I get it. The planet doesn’t need this blog. It won’t miss it if it isn’t here and you certainly have much better things to do with … Read More
