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

Nothing like setting your goals … 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

I know I keep banging on about the weather but I really cannot remember a summer like this. Apart from a brief period of time in June, the prevailing weather in the UK throughout July and August has been cool, overcast and rainy. This sucks big, hairy balls.

Time Travelling

Do you ever time travel? I do. I’ve done it all my life. Of course, I am not talking about time travel in the sci-fi sense, but the time travelling that I suspect most of us do – or at least have done – to our detriment. Let me explain. I first time travelled as a child when the school … Read More

MOT For The Body

The Range Rover had an MoT* today. It failed. Sodding emissions. Most likely the cat just needs a bit of a clear out, which a blast up the motorway could fix but, of course, there is the worse-case-scenario where new cats are involved. I hate MoTs. Stress + Money x Time = MoT. This got me thinking. It is a … Read More

List Of The Week #8

Man, I ache! I started Yoga this week. I’ll go into it in a bit more detail below but, needless to say, it has left me feeling a bit beaten up. However, I know this to be a temporary discomfort as my body gets used to these new positions, exercises and stretches, so I shall persevere. Until that time though, … Read More
