Recently found another gps game app on Google Store called Sighter. It ses to bee like Munzee but based solely of taking photos of the place you’re tracking. I’ll give it a whirl tomorrow. Need to come up with a couple of new game formulas seeings how the last one looks undoable. 46 days left before my new life begins up in Scotland. I’m so excited to see my Vic and little Cassia again. Im even ready packed for FFF2. Talk about commitment. Done a little Euromillions lotto syndicate with the lads at the workshop just for today. Roll on tonight, we’d love to all leave work 😉
So far this past few months I’ve been made a daddy, had a book dedicated to me, have my name featured in a videogame and visited Scotland for the first time. The next few months will see me meeting my childhood heroes, my name featured in another book, moving to Scotland and being with my family happily ever after.
Two years ago this would’ve been just an impossible dream. When things got bad for me to the point of #depression a few years ago , I hung in there and started changing my life. Now I’m one of the proudest and happiest men alive and its largely thanks to my wonderful partner.
I love you Victoria 😉 xxx
The artwork for the limited edition of Port Of Peril has been released. From the quills of Iain McCaig illustrator of many Fighting Fantasy pictures comes this lovely sandy toned setting from the titular Port… Port Blacksand. So far two familiar faces have been spotted. Spotted by Ben Parkinson on Twitter…Mungo, the doomed sailor from FF7 Island Of The Lizard King, can be seen in the bottom right hand corner. In the middle distance to the left we also see a FF6 Deathtrap Dungeon Easter egg represented by the elf maid with a boa constrictor.
This thrilling limited edition of Ian Livingstone’s Port Of Peril is going to be a rarity as only 500 are meant to be printed. They will be available at Fighting Fantasy Fest 2 in Ealing on the 2nd Spetember. Yes, I am going too 😉
Legendary Living Dead film creator passes into the hereafter. His first three Living Dead films set standards for what Hollywood would call the Zombie genre, (dammit they’re ghouls , zombies don’t eat people-see Night’)
These films would forever be ripped off, sometimes to great effect (Zombie Flesh Eaters), sometimes to bad (Zombie Nation) other times hapily parodied (Shawn Of The Dead).
Finally my geocaching trackable has come back onto the radar after an almost 12 month hiatus.
Sister O’Brother , aka Roamin’ Catholic, was picked up by a geocacher named Eskil while in Scotland and subsequently taken to Germany. There was an 11 and a half month wait before she resurfaced on the trackable map. Not only did Eskil fail to register this trackables movements, they also appeared to have boycotted reading her mission to reach the Vatican. Now in the capable hands of U.S. geocacher TheLF (who provided the photo above), she is enjoying a little Florida sunshine before they move her along. She has at least been clearly looked after, but how she ended up there is a mystery. Welcome back online Sister!

Just finished reading David Jason’s autobiography which my fantastic fiancee gifted me on my 41st birthday several weeks ago. What can I say about it? Well, as Pa Larkin might say…Perfec’. David takes us right back to the 1940s telling us all the things he got up to in post war Britain, then takes us through his early days as an electrician right the way up to his Knighthood in the mid noughties. Several highlights include how many injuries he’s had over the years, having to avoid the advances of a gay actor in a small room, and unwittingly being in a film that turned out was rather rude. But all of this is eclipsed by the admiration he has always had for his own idol Ronnie Barker, and the final page is a beautiful tear jerking testimony to it.
