As a staunch 'MetalHead', I should feel guilty about some of the stuff I like to listen to. But I don't actually feel guilty about any of the following:

Bomb the Bass - Don't make me wait
Britney Spears - Toxic (one of the best pop songs ever)

Nelly Furtado - Maneater

Probably the single piece of TV drama that has stuck with me more than anything I've watched since childhood. I've only seen it once, and it regularly replays itself in my head.

It's the sudden "Oh f**k" moment you have once it registers...stunning piece of work.

Sobering moment this evening when I got home from work - my kids (11 and 9) asked if there was anything they could do to help with what is going on.

A little chat later, and they have got text together for a leaflet for them to put through the letterboxes of the estate we are on, offering help to anyone who needs it. Popped it up on the Facebook group for the estate, got a long list of names & numbers to add to the list and volunteers to help distribute the leaflets.

Kids are great.

Session 1 result:

Ran into time issues unfortunately, leaving the remaining colour work on Death to be done in the 3rd session  when leg has fully healed, along with Mortis getting worked on too.

Session 2 tomorrow - all day from 9:30 through to 5:30, with a 1-hour break for lunch. Aim is to get as much of Fear done as possible.

Looking at a 4th session in May to finish off anything needed on Fear, and get a start on Fire.

As a result of a cancellation, the first session is now Saturday coming and not 3 weeks from now :D

10:30 through to 5pm, and I can't bloody wait to see how much we get done!!

Matt Berry was an inspired bit of casting.

I really shouldn't laugh as much as I do at "BAT!!"

Here's mine:



The above were done in 2004 - due to costs and the artist relocating to Oz, they've never been completed.

And because I am very picky, I've never found the right person to complete them. Original plan was to get them filled in black, with flame for Fire, but the more recent Dark Justice etc made me think colour would be the better option when I finally got around to getting it completed.

By pure chance, an apprentice in one of our local studios recently outed herself as a Dredd fan so I organised a consult. In the meantime I found https://www.bookdepository.com/Judge-Dredd-Dark-Judges-Alan-Grant/9781684050444 in Forbidden Planet...didn't know it existed, and then saw the coloured version of the scene my tattoos are based on.

Popped in for the consult on Saturday, artist pings me the initial concept for what she wants to do with them...

Roll on 12th March.

Airbourne, on Friday night just gone down in Southampton...bloomin' marvellous.

Got Max & Iggor Cavalera on 11th December, doing the 'Return Beneath Arise' Sepultura set.....however, due to the SWR train strike crap going on I may not be able to do it as last train out of dodge that night is about 10:30  >:(

Family gig trip on 21st - Alter Bridge up in the O2 in the Millennium Dome.

As an Irish man, I dream of having a lover who grows spuds out of their body for my sexual gratification. And pisses whiskey.

Would you settle for Poitín instead?

Matt Berry in What We Do In The Shadows is absolutely making my week. "Remove your fangs, ungrateful creature!"  :lol:


He's also in 'Year of the Rabbit' on C4, coming up soon - a Victorian era cop show.

Finished it last night - my wife can be considered the fan, as she loves Neil Gaiman and anything he does, and she loved it. I'll be honest and say that I've never read the books so went in fresh - and I enjoyed it too. Drags a little in places, but overall a good romp.

So sad to hear about Peter. A gloriously warm giant. 43 years on from first his donning the walking carpet, my daughter will wake up this morning beside her cuddly Chewie, under her two Chewie posters and put on her Chewie dressing gown and then i'll have to tell her the news.


Our girls found out this morning via the radio - we (wife and I) were upstairs when we suddenly heard "No, not Chewie!" from downstairs. Thankfully they were OK with it, no tears, but felt really sorry for them when I heard that.
