Well you know, a long time ago I probably would have. When I was in my 20′s I was pretty keen on psychics and clairvoyants and kirlian photography for auras; actually anything that delved into mystic spiritualism and the occult. Truth be told [...]
Through some bizarre twist of fate it seems everyone is getting divorced all of a sudden; from my sister back home all the way through to Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. If I didn’t know any better I’d say that there are more people getting divorced than married. I just got engaged [...]
This week I had a serious health scare, my lungs got infected with a virus and my breathing became more and more laboured and last Monday I coughed so hard I tore some rib cartilage. Each cough then became an exercise in torture like someone was jamming a screwdriver in the middle of my back [...]
Recently I’ve been thinking about changing my name. Not completely and not to avoid any criminal charges, but because I feel a growing need to do right by one of grandparents that I feel was jipped by nature, and neglected by parents when it came to his grandchildren.

Unlike other web services battles where two tech behemoths go head to head in all out war and nobody outside of the tech elite even notice, this one is special because nearly one billion internet users will have an opinion that will count. [...]
It was late afternoon and I was leaving my flat to do some shopping for a few things. As I stepped out onto the street and casually surveyed my surroundings I saw a blind man across the road standing on one side of a street, stopped and obviously about ready to try to cross it. [...]
There was a glorious time in my life when I was paid to watch a lot of Kung Fu flicks as part of my job. I worked for an internet TV company then, and it was one of the best job I ever had because I got to watch a load of kung [...]
