    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.

    There is nothing here. Whatever you were looking for doesn't currently exist at this address. Unless you were looking for this page, in which case: congratulations! You totally found it.

    What was the last food you ate?

    Got some mince and bolognese sauce left over from before, tho not a lot, so bulked it out by frying up some chopped tomato with a bit of mixed peppers, a splash of garlic granules, and a (also leftover) half a small tin of baked beans, on spaghetti, sounds like bit of a strange combination but it was nom-a-licious

    Not sure what it is, but, yeah cool? And yes it is! Not half bad must be said. And the peak still good for keeping the low winter sun out of the eyes especially driving.

    Forgot to post yesterday! (Again!) Spaghetti bollog-naisey....... - And not out of a tin! (Well the sauce was out of a jar. But added a few diced peppers and the magic ingredient, ketchup. ) Todays so far was an egg and bacon fry up, on toast, with beans and tinned tomatoes
