Happy New Year to all! Hope you all had a good evening the other night.

I went to my friends in Bristol on New Years Eve for an evening of curry, drinks, bit of crap telly and some GoldenEye on the N64. Not massively interesting but New Years is overrated in my opinion anyway – bah humbug!

I did get a little freaked in a Smile supermarket that evening. We were queuing with a few supplies for the night when some homeless people walked into the shop. They were obviously as high as kites, staggering about the place falling into people and shelves. One of them moaned “Oh man! This shop is messing with my mind! They don’t sell any Special Brew”. They certainly didn’t give the stereotypical image of a drunk, smelly, dirty tramp any reason to be doubted.

Also went to see my Bath friends last night, we hired out a film called Ong-Bak from Telewest’s pay-per-view service. Ong-Bak is a Thai fighting film about a man who has to retrieve a stolen Buddah head and save his village.

Inevitably it’s not just a case of collecting the artefact from the thieves; a lot of fighting is involved. The stunts and fights are very impressive; apparently no stunts of computer images were used.

The film did not have an English soundtrack and was subtitle. Not normally a problem but when it’s midnight and you’re tired from the night before it was a little annoying to keep reading.

Onto football, Leeds comfortably won the New Years Eve fixture against Hull City 2-0. Very pleasing news to hear that The Mighty Whites are playing so well, a mix for the game can be found here.

Leeds are playing again today, Plymouth Argyle. I was originally planning on going to this fixture; I even had the tickets at one point. Sky then decided they wanted to air the game so changed it to a 5.15 kick off. This was too late for my dad who couldn’t take me in the car, I thought about going on my own and meeting up with some fellow Leeds fans but the last train back to Bath was far too early. Instead I am dragging some friends down to the local pub to watch Super Leeds (hopefully) get a 4th win in 8 days.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
