WPress App Reactivated

Finally got around to reinstalling the WordPress App on my phone. You’ve had it now.. muhahahaha!

Revision Demoparty 2k18

We are only a few months away from the largest demoscene party in the world and I’m looking forward to getting drunk, watching the compos and chatting shit on IRC with the party go-ers.

Even though I don’t really follow the demoscene now, I still like to wallow in the nostalgia of old Amiga demos uploaded to YouTube and view old ascii collys for my textmode fix. Other than checking out Revision I don’t have a clue nor care whats going on in todays ‘scene’. Age has dissolved my interest and after dabbling with our own scene projects 10+ years ago, the stuffy attitudes and leetist BS that went on during our time leaves a sour taste in your mouth.

Saying that, they were fun times and it was good actually doing something productive instead of just bleating on about it and some of the flamewars were a riot.

Revision 2018
March 30th to April 2nd
Saarbrücken, Germany

Belated Happy NoO Year!

I know it’s nearly March but Happy New Year anyway!

Can’t say it’s been an amazing start to the year as I’ve just spent 4 weeks off work with flu and a damn chest infection.   I’m not sure what strain of flu it was but I’ve never experienced symptoms like it before and never want to again.

A visit to the doctor didn’t clarify much either and it was basically a few tests followed by a pneumonia check, then “yes it’s ok, you arent’ dying, get the fuck out of my surgery and get plenty of bed rest!” Great!

So I’m finally on the mend but the sleepless nights with back pain (due to fever dehydration) and the general insomnia has pushed me to get cracking on my web related stufzz.  Late night TV is shite too so thank gawd for the internet. 🙂

I’ve been poking around in the Wpress dashboard to try and get my head around the functions again and I noticed 4 new comments that needed verifying.

Guess what?  All utter tosh that was kicked into touch.  Bah!

Back in the game.

  • Sod all updates in the last 12 months… CHECK
  • Online lethargy… CHECK
  • Sod all updates in the last 12 months (have I said that already?)… CHECK

It appears the winter season is firmly upon us, it’s fecking freezing, it’s dark outside at 4pm and all you want to do is activate hibernation mode.

So what does this mean?

It means closing the blinds, getting all the lights on, cranking the central heating up to 10 and taking solace in our power sapping gadgets!

As this is the case, I thought it was about time to leave Phizbook and Twatter alone for a few mins and concentrate on kicking this blog into gear.

So here we go again, let the opinion orgy commence…

Did somebody mention Euro ’16?


Let’s be honest, England’s display in this year’s European championships was nothing short of fucking shambolic!

No teamwork skills, no passion and a goalkeeper who was more focused on his next shampoo commercial than keeping his eye on the sodding ball! ⚽

That aside, Wales gave back a shred of diginity to the UK by making it to the last 8 and showing their best team for a long time. Bale and the boys went out of the competition with their heads held high and returned to a heroes welcome, whilst our rabble were flown home by Easyjet and publicly buggered on landing.

Here endeth the hiatus.. Erm.. 

Mmm, well ok, I did say that I would keep this blog updated on a regular basis and after the initial burst, I’ve become a right lazy shite. 

I have the WordPress app installed on my phone so have no real excuse not to punch in some words, publish them and justify my monthly fee for server space. 

My online presence these days mainly seems to consist of: undertaking general browsing tasks (reading constant drivel that constitutes itself as entertainment), music streaming, online shopping and playing Destiny. 

Hopefully, this little flutter of productivity will continue.. [watch this space]. 

Bring me sunshine..


Morecambe and Wise Xmas Show.

Christmas has now officially started. 🙂

Rockin’ around the Xmas tree!


Well, it is the season to be jolly, good will to all men blah blah and a perfectly legitimate excuse to get totally smashed off of your face!

All this aside, I’ve been having a right old laugh at the regurgitated audio guff that manifests itself this time of year.

One tune in question, is the old classic Rocking Around The Christmas Tree by Mel & Kim. This song  has been cut by about 10 seconds because the ‘powers that be’ have deemed a section of it unfit for listeners due to not being  politically correct.

“I haven’t had this much fun since Two Little Boys was number one” is the lyric that’s been axed and it’s amused me no end.

Surely Rolf Harris’s extra curricular activities don’t really matter when it comes to a song reference but I suppose they’ve done it to spare any distress to his alleged victims.

Who knows??

Ho! Ho! Ho!


Oh no! Another interweb blog?

Yes, yes, I know what you are thinking.

It’s another WordPress blog boo hiss!

Well, it’s been about 10 years since I attempted anything web based (apart from a bog standard HTML front end) and I thought it was about time I got my arse into gear and actually produced something.

To spawn the graphical loveliness you see before you (*cough), I had to do the following:

  • Remember log in deets for web host
  • Create an SQL database
  • Install WordPress
  • Find a nice simple and punchey theme.. cue Hemingway
  • Think of some old bollocks to say as a first post
  • Hey presto!!

And there you go, my own little corner of the internet and I’ll promise to do my very best to clog up bandwidth with needless waffle and opinions wherever possible .  🙂
