Phospha-what-now?

Phosphatidyl Serine. Nope, I don’t know how to pronounce it either, but I wanted to tell you about this somewhat miraculous supplement. My battle with depression is well documented and I have often posted or written about supplements that I have found helpful. The three that I always take to help keep my brain ticking over nicely being 5-htp, theanine … Read More

What’s Your Excuse?

His LordshipHealth, Wellbeing & Fitness0 Comments

Like millions of people around the world, I did some gym work today. Leg extensions and squats, to be precise. My gym is a bit different to most, however, as it is outside. Now, if you live in California or Barbados or some other gloriously warm, hot and dry climate, this would not be any kind of deal. In fact, … Read More

Is It Really THAT Hard To Say Sorry?

The past couple of weeks have really put my new-found ability to practise mindfulness in frustrating situations under the ultimate stress test. For a start, there has been an ongoing issue with my car. One of those annoying intermittent faults that you cannot track down, so the only solution is to gradually replace the most likely culprits until you hit … Read More

Feeling S.A.D.?

Now the clocks have gone back, tens of thousands of people in the UK will start the downhill trek toward Seasonal Affective Disorder, or S.A.D. – as apt an acronym as I have ever heard. I hate to use the word “suffer” – it makes me feel like a victim – but I do experience S.A.D. Over the years, it … Read More

Trick Or Mistreat

It’s the night before Hallowe’en as I write this. It is a special time of year for me, mainly due to the memories that it conjures up. You see, it was around this time of year, several moons ago, that my band – SPiT LiKE THiS – first encountered a whiff of success. One drunken afternoon, several months prior, I … Read More

17 Years Not Out

Vikki and I had our 17th anniversary on the 18th October. She was just 17 when we got together (nearly 18 – her birthday is on 23rd), but that small fact means that I have been a part of her life for HALF of her life. That is crazy. What is crazier though is the fact that we have made … Read More

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

List Of The Week-ish #12

Decided that I really should change the title of these LOTW. My good intentions go right out of the window as time becomes more and more limited and, when I have the time to blog, I want to write about other stuff. So, from hereon, this portion of the blog shall be known as – *drumroll* – LIST OF THE … 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

Accepting Your Limitations

When I was in my early twenties I decided the following: 1) That I was going to win a Grammy 2) I was going to win an Oscar 3) I was going to be Mr Olympia Not only had I decided on those three things, I determined that they would be within the SAME YEAR! Nothing like setting your goals … Read More
