Looks like we’re not going to have a good Christmas…

Looking forward to Christmas? I usually do, but not this year. Myself and my son aren’t going to have a good Christmas this year, or any year. Why? Well, let’s take a look at this wonderful Christmas advert from Asda that explains it all:

Jay & Silent Bob Do Edinburgh

Two guys talk about everything and nothing at the same time.

The man once deemed “Too Fat To Fly” and a man dubbed “Hurricane Mewes” sat on a stage talking to each other, for two hours. Doesn’t sound like much of a show, but damn if it wasn’t one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen live and in the flesh.

RIP Steve Jobs

In the grand scheme of things, there are very few people in the history of the world that can realistically claim to have affected the way the world works. To have that kind of influence, to totally shift mankind off it’s axis, even slightly – it’s unthinkable… but Steve Jobs can say he did that.

The advance and decline of the coffee shop

It’s a funny thing.

I sat in a coffee shop on Friday, on my own, for the first time in a while. The first time I sat in a coffee shop in the UK, it was 12 years ago. Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow to be precise. The Seattle Coffee Company, it was called, and it was COOL. That’s in capitals for a reason. At the time, coffee was something you made in a mug with instant powder, or bought in a polystyrene cup from a takeaway.

Quick show-off update

Well, I apologise for the lack of activity recently. I had a college thing to get out of the way, once that was done I just wanted to chill.. then the world cup began.

Once the group stage is over with, I will post a round up of what I liked and what I didn’t. I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for that.

Oh, and why is this a show-off update? It’s from my new phone, using the WordPress Android app! Mobile blogging! Huzzah!

So yeah, that’s about it for now. It’s late, or early depending on your point of view… check back soon for more stuff.

Worry not, Inno Viewers

… or one man’s battle for sanity during school holidays

I have not forsaken thee! It’s Easter hollipops here at Inno Towers, and that means – school’s are off. This also means, every waking hour of mine taken up by keeping a small, hyperactive injury prone child happy.

This has meant one trip to hospital with a broken wrist, a trip to the cinema, and a meeting with Kofi Kingston so far. One week to go… I shall blog tonight (hopefully) with one of my as live-live-LIVE recaps of Raw. Yep, that’s the level we’re operating on.

See you then, then!
