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
Got to share this
Ok so im a couple of days late because I didn’t think I could really be bothered to talk about this. However, scholastic have released the cover art of Ian Livingstone’s brand new FF book, Port Of Peril. I first started reading FF during the greenspine era around 1988, and as such have been weened on the realistic lifelike strokes of such artists as Les Edwards, Ian McCaig, Jim Burns and a whole load more. The new cover art is somewhat more cartoonish, with bold colours rather than blended and angled lines rather than curved. Such is the style of the artists Robert M Ball who has taken on the project. They somewhat remind me of the old Tunnels & Trolls book coverart.
A lot of fans, myself included will take time to adjust to this entirely new look with the FF facebook threads being something of a debate on the matter. After a bit of research however I have found out kids today are favouring this new art format over the old. At least with one cover artist all the books will look consistently designed. Another nice touch Ian himself let slip is there are no more greenspines they have been upgraded to a very eye catching gold foil, as have the dagger logo and title. Who doesn’t like gold right? Apart from maybe the crap Cybermen off Doctor Who!
So as a purist, I’m going to miss the old cover art and swallow a rather bitter pill. But as for the series, I think its got a tough challenge ahead levering kids off of video games but if it works then the future of FF and likelihood of more new adventures will be in good stead. It’s a good time for us to all test for LUCK.
Got quite drunk on some Rum that Scott had bought me for my birthday and regretted it yesterday I can tell you. Gradually I’ve began to feel better, so much so I managed to visit Dad and wish him happy Father’s Day. Of course, this is also my very first as a Father and so soon after my treasured little baby girl was born. I love you XxXxX
Last night at 10:16pm I became a father for the very first time with the arrival of my beautiful daughter Cassia Hope Sophia. Words cannot say how ecstatic and proud I am with this, something which I thought would never happen. I endeavour to be the best father I possibly can, and to my fiancee…I love you both so very very much XxXxX
