World's Weirdest Knock Offs...

I just realised today how long it has been since I added anything to this blog, I guess things had gotten away from me for a while there! :-)

Still, while I try and come up with a better idea, here are some classic pieces of knock off merchandise, available at a table top sale somewhere near you (if you are really unlucky).

Still, I reckon there is a place for things like this... After all, who wouldn't want to be a kid again just to have feel the joy of running down the stairs on Christmas morning and opening your very own 'Spaderman' or 'Robert Cop'?

I don't know which I am more drawn to the SQNY Playstation, or the PCP Station... I've just got a boring old Sony :-(

Anyway, as usual feel free to add your comments, and I'll try and do better next time!

So.... Why do I want a Les Paul?

Ok, here I am, killing time as usual, surfing through the world wide web, and what do I find but a new line of limited edition Gibson Les Paul Studio guitars.

For the longest time, like the fox in the Aesop's fable who couldn't reach the berries at the top of the tree, I had decided that Gibson Les Pauls were all played by people with more money than sense, people who would pay all that money just to have the mother of pearl 'Gibson' logo emblazoned across the top of their headstock... Whether they could play the damn thing or not wouldn't matter, as long as they had the same guitar Slash had. (Insert here any of the following: Jimmy Page, Gary Moore, Slash, Pete Townsend, Zac Wilde, The Edge, Etc Etc)

Jeremy Clarkson's Best Quotes?

English writer, and presenter of Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson is well known for his tongue, but what are some of his best lines?

Who Is The Stig?

Hey girls... Wanna go for a ride?
I am a little late to the party on this one. Mainly because I have known that The Stig was Ben Collins for about four years now, as does anyone who took the time to do a bit of internet research when they got a bit bored. If the news yesterday and today (the super injunction of a high profile sporting star being widely ignored, even in the house of commons) proves anything, secrets are much harder to keep in the computer age, especially if you are in the public eye for eight years and sell T-shirts with the logo 'Who is The Stig?'

Personal Stereo Recorder - Zoom H1?

Ok, so here's the thing... I've started singing exercises to try and fill the gaps in my range and generally improve my voice. Problem is, I can't listen to myself... I need a recorder.

Beefeater Tower of London Tour - This Guy is Great!

A friend of mine pointed me at these You Tube videos and I'm really glad he did. In a world full of political correctness it's good to see someone who has the balls to pick on everyone... After all, it can't be discrimination if you piss off everyone equally, can it?

Rules of the Air

Last weekend was a big one for me, I finally earned my full gliders licence. I can now officially go anywhere in the world and make clubs nervous about me bringing their aircraft back. To celebrate this milestone, I thought I would post some of the sage advice I have collected from wiser pilots than me. (Click 'Read More' for the Rules of the Air)
