Last weekend was pretty damn amazing. Went to see Uncle Snowy and watch the Floyd / Roger Waters 'The Wall' tour. Pretty mind blowing. Seriously.

We went to the 'family and friend guest room' greeted by a nice hamper and table of refreshments.

We then got treated to a backstage tour just before the show.

It's funny how my last post was about Charisma. There was so much of it swimming about that night, all rightfully so aswell. Brilliant.



Greek χαρισμα, meaning "favor given" or "gift of grace"

How can you teach that, how do you even aquire it? I'm not sure, it baffles me but I'm sure everyone is aware of someone with charisma, the kind of person who enters a room and instantly makes everyone bright eyed, insprired and motivated. Forever a mystery.

"Charisma is a sparkle in people that money can't buy. It's an invisible energy with visible effects." - Marianne Williamson

Why are our days consumed and overpowered with the constant pursuit of more money.

Money = Success + Happiness

I've never been too good at maths, but that surely adds up wrong.

I've spent hours already today thinking about money, what i need to get, where its all going, what i can afford. It's not the best of fun.

I'm going to go on a bike ride instead. Solution to everything.

Disneyland is a work of love. We didn't go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money. - Walt Disney

I get to play golf for a living. What more can you ask for - getting paid for doing what you love. - Tiger Woods

I want to put a ding in the universe - Steve Jobs

Is a great bit of radio i was listening too this morning, 16 mins long, but really, its great, the pinnacle being 'The sound of sunshine' 5 minutes in. Happy.

Went to Crash Doubt festival weekend just gone. It was interesting, I'm finding it hard to say i had a 'great time' the music wasn't at all too my taste, although company was good. Smiles and good times.

What does it mean when your constantly tired? It's not at all fun, hopefully the doctors can tell me whats going on tomorrow, it's getting in the way, 12 hours sleep and knackered after 4 hours. Not to mention the fact blogging time is being swapped for sleeping times.


I've been watching a lot of propaganda videos recently, videos that question everything we are told or fed from the news, by people in power.

Its quite alarming, certainly eye opening and entails you unable to watch the news again without questioning everything, murders, money issues, government quibbles, even football scores. But i like it. It's almost like an inside peek of whats really happening, I've read the blurb on the back of the 'real world' book and assuming the story inside.

Really looking forward to this weekend, its a Lincoln small 2 day festival, and in all honesty i haven't heard of many bands, nor am fussed about hearing them, its the atmosphere I'm looking forward too, having lots of friends in one place. Fun times.

Blogs are few and far between at the moment, apologies, lots going on lately. When i do write one though, i try make it matter.

Watch this.

Hopefully you catch my drift now.

Enjoy your weekend.

Impersonation is the biggest form of flattery



'Do what makes you happy'

The staple quote that everyone should obide by. Some where along the path though it's forgotten by many. Sadly. Get on it.

Cycling home from an enjoyable night with friends on Saturday morning i biked straight into some sort of cycle race. It was a sunny morning, no winds, perfect to be out. Myself in Vans classics, skinny black jeans and a white T-shirt, pushing a 70's single speed road bike, recieved some vicious stares from the lycra clad groups of cyclists adorned their carbon steeds. I imagine many of these angry men and women had probably forgot the reason they started cycling in the first place, nor still get any satisfaction in it. 

Their was one guy though, at the back of the big groups of pedal pushers, he resembled Sheldon Brown, whilst i was smiling at the other 'roadys' trying to get some sort of neutural reaction he had already made eye contact, his bike was old and battered, he wasn't wearing any high tech kit, as he pottered past he smiled and gave me a salute. This guy was keeping it real. He knew why he was out riding his bike. He was enjoying himself.


Back on this Island.

After a great long weekend away, certainly an eye opening trip, to a country of common sense, correct priorities and no inhibition.

I'm sat listening to this right now, i suggest you press play too.

Everything I've ever questioned or suggested about the day to day state of peoples suggested living in the UK was answered in a weekend of riding my bike around Holland.

Myself and 3 friends did around 200 miles, not once did we touch a road.

Rotterdam - beautiful city, everyone rides bikes, everyone. You would see business men cycling round in suits with briefcases in pursuit, travelling this way as its efficient, fast, easy, cheap. Not driving a BMW as a status symbol for 45mins, 3 miles down the road to keep an inflated ego aloft.
The main road through Rotterdam separated, in the middle of the road was a massive skatepark, live DJ's, MC's, rap battles. Everyone having a great time. Enjoying life.
Buildings that were jaw dropping, boats in rivers you could look at for hours, hospitality, smiles, happiness. It was all there.

Amsterdam - Again lovely place, too much of a holiday destination though, too touristy in my opinion. Sadly i gave myself quite bad sun stroke cycling there and spent my time feeling very sick and cold, i couldn't do much.

The only down side to Holland was the lack of cider. They didn't even know what it was! apart from Irish pubs.

Back in the UK, cycle paths covered in glass, impatient drivers aggravated at the sight of a cyclist, I've been back a day and have a new trip planned already. Lets go.
