If I Had A Mind

Go Pack GO!!

If I had mind to, I’d tear that fucking statue down and send it back to France….   A mind, they say, is a terrible thing to waste. But sometimes, in my case anyway, I’m not so sure. A mind can be very much like time and money. Money shines more brightly when it’s wasted.…

Newcastle United 2      Chelsea 0   I’ve said many times that the Gundam always wins. Same for the Valvraves and the Variable Fighters of Macross. What I mean by that is that they always win in the end. Sometimes they have to retreat and fight another day. But on the way to ultimate victory, they…

Cordially Invited To Write About Death

RIP Marco Simoncelli  1987-2011 Daniel Clive Wheldon  1978-2011 I’ve been resisting this, to be honest. There is not much more to said that hasn’t already been said, so I will not belabour it.
