I’M WHERE I SHOULD BE

comfort-break

during last night’s show i posted this photo and titled it “comfort break” as it was how i left the desk when i went for such. i later changed my profile photo on twitter and facebook to the snap.

it is only while looking at it now that i see so much of what is me in it. some of it hard for the viewer to make out, but…

the headphones and mic, the decks, the laptop all represent my love (some would say obsession) of music.

the mixlr chat page with some of my good pals, old and new, that share that love.

the pork pie and bucket hats an amalgamation of ska/indie/mod.

“The People United Will Never Be Defeated” & Hecky WSB stickers my love of Barnsley FC and (tenuously) my politics.

the Scootering calendar speaks for itself. so peculiar that you can find so much of yourself without even looking for it.

ILLUMINATION

i was setting up Skype again a couple of weeks back and decided to try summat i once did before. i am going to try and simulcast a radio show on video streaming. now, whether this works or not is in the lap of the gods, and if if actually HAPPENS, relies on me getting a new webcam. or should i say ANOTHER webcam. cos i bought one. 

looked ok. said it would do what i wanted. and was cheap enough. too cheap. should have known really. brand new webcam for less than 3 quid. all the way from china. no p&p.

idiot.

absolute pile of rammel. it works ok ish for skype, but won’t do the job for the shows. so if i can source one in the next 24hrs we’ll be going live visually AND aurally. if not it will wait until the new year.

watch this space.

WITH TIME AND TEMPERANCE

despite the rant earlier, i feel i am changing. growing older and wiser. not growing UP exactly. don’t think that will ever happen, but still…

take tomorrow. tomorrow i will be doing TWO things i have never done in 46 years.

1. participate in secret santa.

2. wear a xmas jumper.

and the odd thing is, i’m kind of looking forward to it.

don’t get me wrong, as The Enemy will tell you, i LOVE xmas. i just don’t DO xmas until there is xmas in the day.

i HATE xmas shopping (avarice at its worst) i HATE writing xmas cards (a waste of money) i ABHOR forced joviality in the workplace/anywhere (don’t tell me how to be happy)

i swear, i ain’t a grinch. ask The Teen! ask The Parental Unit….

but this year, i have sat and written some cards.

The Enemy* has bought a secret santa gift.

and The Enemy* has also bought me a snowman sweater, complete with a sticky out carrot and a floppy scarf.

we’re also in the process of making TWO yule logs for the team buffet tomorrow.

i still draw the line at singing xmas carols though.

wish me luck

*i draw the line at venturing out into the mad crowds.

SHADOW OF THE SUN

FUCKING FILTHY SCUM RAG.

this world is currently a fucked up place. we have shit going on all over the place with various race/religion/countries/creeds fighting each other for who know’s what reasons.

and then you get this lot.

scum

worse than the idiots committing these atrocities are the cunts that work for m*****h publishing his hate and lie filled “newspaper”.

no-one…. NO-ONE needs to see this. i haven’t watched it. i don’t need to watch it. i don’t even want to THINK abut what it potentially contains. i am certain the relatives and friends of those killed and injured last night won’t want to see it.

“HORRIFYING VIDEO” it screams.

“CAUTION: GRAPHIC CONTENT”.

we don’t want to fucking see this.

they shouldn’t be allowed to even publish this.

fucking disgrace. scum. nothing short of.

i have NEVER and will NEVER buy the s**.

take care of each other folks.

HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS

never do my blood pressure any good going down t’Well, but boy did that win feel good! thought we were going to throw it away in the second half though, but we dug in and saw it out. one of the things i enjoy about social media is the “banter” you can have with opposition fans. doesn’t have to be nasty, can be light hearted…
