    Hadn't even heard of MLP until beginning of June 2016. Well I was vaguely aware that some toys of that name existed. Discovered it purely by chance on one of the UK Freeview channels. It just so happened that at that particular time of day it was about halfway through an episode, season 5 I think, but can't remember which ep. Pretty sure it was a scene showing Twilight being vocal about something. It impinged on my consciousness, so I gave it 5 minutes worth, and to cut a long story short I noticed that it would be repeated again later that evening along with another ep, so I recorded them to watch later. And recorded and watched the next day's, and the next, and so on, and so here we are. Have now got all the DVD sets up to season 4, currently seasons 5 & 6 recorded.

    Other fave cartoons include: MLP, Futurama, Family Guy, South Park, Stressed Eric, Gogs, Bernie And Corneil, Spongebob Squarepants, Angry Kid. Oh mustn't forget Larva! I am also indebted to MLP for incidentally introducing me to Larva; the Freeview channel would sometimes throw in a Larva cartoon after an MLP to help pad out what was left of the remaining 30 minutes. Larva is hysterically funny, hadn't laughed so much in ages. I also like most Disney stuff, speshly the earlier ones which made an indelible impression on me as a child. E.g. was obsessed with Fantasia for quite a while.

    Fave bands / music artists I like (quick trawl thru iTunes): Seal, Alanis Morisette, All Saints, The Beatles, Beck Sian, The Blue Nile, The Bangles, Coldplay, Level 42, David Bowie, Elbow, Electro Guzzi, Fonogeri, Genesis, Gerard Presencer, Jakatta, Jethro Tull, Joanna Newsom, Kate Bush, Clannad, Enya, Louise Rednapp, Madness, Mahvishnu Orchestra, Madonna, Martyn Bennett, Massive Attack, Morcheeba, Noel Gallagher / Oasis, Pat Metheney Group, Paul Simon, Sugababes, Thievery Corporation, This Way Up, Tiesto, Toyah Willcox, UB40 ... I'm always making playlists; I also listen to radio a lot and am often grabbed by some tune, so it gets added to a playlist. There are a few of these 'Compilations' on my YouTube channel. (search for playlists 'Compilation [Roman numerals]')

    I used to draw and paint quite a bit when I was younger, but that petered out over time, life and work getting in the way! But would like to get back into it again. In the meantime my other interests include designing and building Hi-Fi gear and tube amplifiers, and motorbiking - I currently own a Piaggio X10 scooter. Also like reading Sci-fi paperbacks.

  1. Ah, has the proletarian lumpen infrastructure been stabilised by the taking out of the pseudo-bourgeois dictator element? "Er, you mean, 'Is the drunk slug dead?'"
  2. "We talked central locking and kill switches in the side stand and oil and such (that is to say, I talked, he pretended to not look confused)"
  3. "What that spaniel? He couldn't smell his own bottom if you put it front of him"
  4. Heavy equipment fails and crash compilation
  5. More of yesterday – having a sort out, got too many tents(!) so two of them got stored in the shed. Much more room in my airing cupboard now. The new one will need to go somewhere!
  6. Spent all day planning camping that I won't be doing untl next year. Totally revised my packing list, again. Been taking too much stuff that is too bulky, or I simply don't use. (This process has happened several times before, "weight shedding".) Spent money on Internet again. Mail ordered another tent, like I really need a new one. But it's so cute ...
  7. I bought this! What the Fark is it? It's a Russian copy of the Swedish made Optimus 8R gasoline camping stove. I had one for years until recently when I stupidly got rid of it, and when now thinking I could it again. Except now they seem to be highly desirable! Collector's items even! Fetch stupid money on eBay! This one is used but more affordable (cos not an Optimus, technically) ... PS: actually it's better than mine was, cos it comes with a little spanner [wrench] (not shown – but the spring clip under the lid is for holding the little spanner) which is for removing the jet and valve for cleaning, and it also has a nice control knob instead of a stupid key like you would use to wind up a clock ...
  8. "This thing, it's as rigid as a rigid thing on National Rigid Day. It ain't going to get much stiffer I don't think without spending squillions of pounds"
  9. I'm not sure! Whatever it was it took all day. Oh well one thing I did was spend loadsa money on eBay. Again. But I need it ...
  10. Dynamite vs. gunpowder for exploding pumpkins, which is better?
