StarLifter music from an old computer game.

Years ago, I mean a very very long time ago when I was young we had a Commodore 64 and I had many favorite games, certain musics stood out for me, but there was one game called Star Lifter and I always loved the bit style music, I always thought it could be updated to a rock track.

I just found this track on YouTube and it brings back so many memories. I just thought I’d share, please enjoy.

I said to this guy “Are you still playing Pokemon Go?”

I walked down to the shop to get some junk food and this guy was in front of me, then behind me as I passed him. I stopped to contemplate maybe getting some KFC chicken from a small local chippy then decided against it. 
Then the guy was in front of me again.

I said out loud “Are you still playing Pokemon Go!”

This Asian guy who had two mobile phones with the app running on both. I must of scared the shit out of him, he jump up and back, skipped sideways looked at me and just ran away!

I didn’t think I was that scarey but it made me laugh hard!

Bird in the Chimney

I went to watch the football at Wembley on Sunday (Spurs vs Chelsea) only to be disappointed, when I got home there was a massive mess in my fireplace, so I went and cleared it up. Straight after I had done that more mess came down so I just left it and had dinner.

I slept okay, wasn’t really disturbed, Monday came, a load more mess, so I phoned the RSPCA only to get an automated response. Told me to clear my room, turn off the gas and do it all myself!

Tuesday came, I decided to stay home and sort it out, I pulled out the heavy cast-iron Edwardian or Victorian fireplace, not sure on that part. A load of mess came out, I had all my windows in the front room open after sitting for around 10 minutes low and behold what looked like a Crow popped down into the fireplace, poor distressed bird wasn’t sure of himself and went straight for the window. I captured a bit of him on my iPhone I can only wish the fella gets better.

I did cleanup the mess before I wrote this.

 

Bye Bye Twitter

I really got sick of it in the end, I had the app on the my phone, was following a few Spurs footballers like Harry Kane and Dele Alli. I was even following the Met Office for the weather and a few other things, but in the end my phone was just going ping with stuff I really didn’t care about.

I was thinking of following Trump, but I really didn’t want to add him to my followers, maybe if everyone stopped following Trump then he would stop using twitter!

Still, here is a song that sums it up.

R.I.P Chester

I have three albums at home and on my iPod, Hybrid Thoery, Meteora and Minutes to Midnight.

To me this is some of the best music produced by Linkin Park and Chester Bennington. These albums are played more than most of the other stuff I have on my iPod but the music is that good.

I saw Linkin Park live at Knebworth House Sonisphere festival in August 2009, this was a real highlight then and now. I was fairly far away and I wish I could of been closer to the stage, even still I thought they were awesome. On the same night my friend Mark got so pissed and passed out in his tent and was upset he missed them as he really wanted to see them also. His own fault really!

Chester I have no idea what drove you off the cliff, but I hope you find peace in the next life. 

Another near miss.

Today I drove to all the way over to my parents followed by a trip to my brother and sister-in-law to see the kids. I managed to get all the way back home. Nothing went wrong! I only drove round to a local restaurant to have some dinner. It should taken just a minute or two to get home after that.

So as I hit a major roundabout where I live my gearstick went to jelly and I stopped moving! My car was in the middle lane and traffic all around me! I put on the hazard lights got out looked at the vichele and hoped no one would hit it. It was snowing and I was getting cold as I called the police watching people avoid my car and nearly hitting each other. They took 20 min to turn up, but when they did it was towed to a safer road! I had to wait another 30 to 40 min for the AA to turn up. I finally got the car back home feeling cold and ill.

I am so glad that no one hit me, I swear at least nearly 1000 cars, vans, big rigs, buses and one salt mixer didn’t leave a scratch.
