Offical statement on the disappearance of Baby Potts!

Dear all


Certain readers of this blog that follow Brighton and Hove Albion will know very well, a young fan called Baby Potts that has attended recent away games the Seagulls have played towards the end of last year and right up to the Villa away match when in bizarre circumstances disappeared on the 1850 Birmingham New Street to London Euston service. I would like to say I am sorry to hear about the disappearance, and wished I met him. My thoughts are with those close to Baby Potts that lost him.


However I would like say this after hearing a disturbing rumour going round pubs in Brighton, that Mr Ball of Strike Factory was behind and responsible for the disappearance of Baby Potts.


I am not in any way behind the disappearance, and never even met Baby Potts as I stated earlier. I was not on the train that Baby Potts went missing. In fact I was not even at Villa Park for the Aston Villa VS Brighton match, not able to get a ticket I listened to the match on BBC Sussex in the main office of Strike Towers. If anything the main suspects should be the 6,000 Albion fans that turned up at Villa Park or any P*lace fans in disguise after the match on the trains.


That is all I can say on the matter, and that I hope Baby Potts is found and safe or a wonderful successor pops up.

15th January 2010

Firstly want to start on a serious note I would like to say my thoughts are with Haiti and its people after their awful earthquake which has hit the poorest nation in the western hemisphere very badly, and I hope to donate a little bit of money to the Red Cross, like a few friends have done that can help this Caribbean nation!


Meanwhile the snow has impacted on my lifestyle in the last week, but I have coped much better despite having to miss two birthday partys over the weekend, thanks to a much improved coat and boots given to me by my parents for Christmas, that ensures I am not slipping about or freezing!


I have been stuck at home listening to old Namco Arcade theme music from the classic Ridge Racer and Tekken series games. I admit this is scary I know, but the Japanese game developers did hire some good DJs, though still listening to decent electro house from the likes of Soulwax etc though! Please clear snow so I can stop getting bored and doing strange stuff! haha



PS I live on land owned by Quakers the church people, not a manufacturing site, although they might make and enjoy Quaker Oats after their Sunday service at the 17th Century Quaker House! Plus has anyone got a spare Aston Villa Vs Brighton match ticket please? Get in touch if you have one!

7th January 2010

My first blog entry of this decade! Well it seems that despite a recession NYE Syndrome is waning! Before the recession I always struggled to arrange a birthday celebration or know of anyone else celebrating early January due to most people being skint from NYE. Well it seems that people do have money now after NYE. I plan to attend the birthday celebrations of Mr and Mrs Murad, and possibly Ali Jenkins in Brighton this weekend! Last year I marked 23 years on Earth, by going to a Indie Disco night at Digital with the legendary Ben Miller and getting conned for £5 in the toilets by a fragrance guy! This year I had four brave souls, travel up from the Sussex coast, to have some drinks and fun in Crawley (shocking I know!) marking 24 years. There was fun and games, and just outside Strike Towers to drop me off, so they could return to Brighton, the group of four got excited about being in Quaker land (well its owned by Quakers with their 17th century meeting house on the site and Strike Towers HQ being a tenant for the moment I am not a Quaker if anyone wonders), and Simon Sissling got excited about the Simon Turner Hall near my HQ which is partly named in his honour.

The Simon Turner Hall would witness another great moment aside from classic table tennis tournaments, BBQs, and teenage girls doing various Irish dances it has hosted down the years, when we drifted into discussions about elephant gods, porridge, jedis, Dan Rolf and pacifists in the car next to the infamous hall! We were along with the other special guests Sarah Steeples, Rakesh Pandit, and Emma Froud discussing (or trying to) philosophy, at about 3am! Though the discussion came out with some interesting views with the variety of Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Atheist and Jedi views in our group, with one the girls thinking that Quakers are a secret society of porridge makers that meet at the hall for a weekly session of enjoying munching Quaker Oats in silence, and Simon questioning whether I really was a Jedi! With a bit of drink inside I struggled to convince the group that Quakers are not just a manufacturer of porridge! This made the graves of the Quakers the other side of the car park from the Simon Turner Hall turn! Eventually we parted after this fine historic moment but not without the group getting lost in Ifield, which I would like to apologise for!

The snow has once again snowed me in once again but I have not been hit by the power cuts or phone lines going that have plagued most of Sussex luckily. But that is all. More news coming up next week, and for more information on the Quakers (Religious Society Of Friends), or Quaker Oats (the porridge) check out these sites, www.quaker.org.uk (the religion) www.quaker.co.uk (the porridge). (sounds a bit Channel 4 like I know haha)
