Fax From The Future release first EP “Hunter of Comets”

So, I have this friend and my friend is in a band. But who doesn’t, right?

Only, this band call themselves Fax From The Future and they are delightfully and unapologetically geeky. Which is so much fun!

I would never be able to come up with a more accurate description than their own words:

“Brighton-based geek-a-billy spock rock. Greasy blues-pop soundtrack to the zombie apocalypse.”

Do you know what that sounds like? If you’ll allow me the hyperbole (try and stop me), that sounds the way your favourite most delicious birthday cake ever tasted.

Read that again.

Now, the exciting news is that Fax From The Future have released their first EP titled “Hunter of Comets” and they are playing their first EP launch gig on 9/3/16 (TONIGHT), at the Marwood Café with Support from Shirty Music – live laser drumkit performance. (FREE entry)

You can stream or buy the Hunter of Comets EP from all the usual places.

So come out for a couple of hours of fun and free live music and lasers or listen to Fax From The Future from wherever you are and have a well-earned hump day boogie.

The Surprise at Pimlico

I took this with my LG G3 which has been producing consistently great photos since I got it. It was my first attempt at black and white. I can’t wait to get my hands on an LG V10 to try that bad boy’s camera out! Hurry up and release it already!

hard drive failure

Of course, my computer’s hard drive would fail just as I’m trying to recover the lost archives of this site. Luckily I was able to use an older database dump and partially restore the site. It will have to do, temporarily, as the old hard drive needs to be replaced before I can do any more. After a lot of similar hardware boo-boos I’ve learned to keep backups but as my approach to them seems to be “throw everything ‘somewhere’ for peace of mind, walk away, do things, repeat” I now have a number of versions of my files that I’ll need to shift through before I can find the latest version of everything. You see, I back up but I’m not very organised at it.

At least, nothing was lost this time.

I’m revamping the blog and making some changes so if anything breaks please bear with me.

Some older content will reappear as I rejig things.

Hold on tight!

almost at the 5th stage: Acceptance (of what it means to go to the gym)

It’s been a couple of weeks since I started going to the gym again. I am less whinny about it now. Yes, almost. I have come to terms with the fact that some people will smell and that some guys are committed to the whole ‘if you love your balls set them free’ thing. I have also accepted that gyms are not clean places, that you will be in contact with other people’s sweat, and your sense of smell will be violated by the B.O. of the stubbornly unwashed.

I found the following graph to be fairly accurate so far. (click to embiggen)

what happens when joining a gymI have seen only a tiny improvement in my fitness because it is still early days but I wish I could see results faster so it doesn’t feel like I’m wasting my time. Well, I’m a Generation Y-er so the instant gratification expectations are almost assumed here. However, I’m trying to take advantage of this by trying harder. I just want to see at least a small change before the thoughts of giving up start creeping in.

It’s not meant to be easy, I get it. So I will continue to be a constantly sore wreck, standing in front of the internets, asking you to keep encouraging me.
