22nd October 2008

Been trying to sort out my erratic sleep patterns which has mean't often I have not got off to sleep until 4am, and went to doctors where I was diagnosed with mild depression. On Friday I stupidly forgot to get a ticket from Haywards Heath to Brighton, and got a penalty ticket though due to depression I can appeal against it to prevent a £20 fine coming my way.

I went on another wild adventure with Dan Rolf and a extra man. Though not as lucky as the previous Saturday, after having a Space Invader themed rave at Rolf Manor in Rottingdean, we got a cab to Brighton starting off at the RDF bar, where we saw disturbing scenes a drunk man shockingly reluctant to get on the table with the ladies, plus the drinks were oddly poor, next it was off to Weatherspoons, having some drinks, then off to Revenge where the girls were disapointingly more intrested in the celebrity guest the guy that plays Hollyoaks gay man John Paul. I came close to pulling a 38 year old ladie but then a lesbian told me to back off even though the woman said she was single and liked men.

We tried a couple more bars before heading back to Rolfs Manor deflated. I bizarrely spent the night with a towel wrapped around me on a sofa, though was honoured to have spent the night at one of the most legendary buildings in Brighton and Hove.

Getting help from Connexions regarding jobhunting, and hoping to land some work soon, and will be at the Lewes bonfire festival enjoying the Wicker Man feel to it.

10th October 2008

A month has past and Strike Factory is back for good and is here to stay. I regret letting blogspirit down, and trying to distance myself from my Strike Factory creation, I am sorry and hope blogspirit and my fans give me another chance. Its been a tough month but getting over it, has helped a bit with Brighton stunning Manchester City in the Carling Cup, though missed the game due to ticket being late.  I also missed the Cheltenham draw due to a nasty cut, though managed a wonderful night in the town with Mr Dan Rolf, sampling two gay clubs and meeting nice str8 girls, with Rolf having luck with a nice Seaford blonde, while I managed to pull a lovely black girl from Burgess Hill, sampling fine dance music as well.

Meanwhile I am back with Rivals.net updating the Seagulls site, and hoping for a proper full time job soon, I am getting help from Connexions and also will be in touch with Central Sussex Haywards Heath again.

Music I have been listening too (mostly a retro synthpop flavor)

Kraftwerk - Trans Europe Express

Pet Shop Boys (late 80's- early 90's stuff)

Katy Parry - I kissed a girl (love that song for some reason!)

Various stuff from Cagedbaby, Prodigy, Toploader, Primal Scream, Strike, Alice Deejay, Shapeshifters.

27th July 2008

Sorry for the lack of updates in recent weeks, I have been taking a break to try and get over the depression. Firstly I would like to thank the McCarthy family for the great BBQ, thanks for the great bbq work Tom and Alison as ever. Plus thanks for being the great host Mr Scott McCarthy. There was plenty of highlights at this years one, with the first bout of violence in the pass the parcel in which yours truly won the Virgin Mary, and some plastic gloves which I forgot to collect from McCarthy Towers.

Anyway there could have been two bouts of violence with Neil Kane being involved in both incidents, as me and Kane had a slanging match throughout much of the pass the parcel it nearly turned into a melee between me and the famous Sussex County League football star. Luckily Mr Ball managed to keep his cool. Surprisingly a row developed between Neil Kane and James Calver, over how the parcel should be correctly passed. Which led to a duel between the two. The funny thing was that James Calver was trying to be a peacemaker between me and Kane earlier on in the pass the parcel competition when it looked like it would turn nasty.

If you want to check out Kane and Calver playing with Tomato Ketchup, plus the exclusive McCarthy/ Ball duet of Last Christmas along with Christmas songs sung by other guests, check out the video links at McCarthys site.


The other highlights included, Tom Withams obsession with playing the German National Anthem, due to getting tired debating with fellow Brighton fans on whether Kerry Mayo should maintain the pitch of Withdean. There was the legendary discussions with Rumble on 90's Eurodance. Testing poisionous vodkas with Jamie Jones. Mark Potter dancing to Steps with his oven glove on that he won in pass the parcel, and finally Dan Collins claim to the throne of France and England through his ancestors the Plantagenets who reigned over England. There were other stories but I could go on all day.

Then afterwards it was off to Brighton. To meet up with Wilko and co, at Audio to celebrate the 31st anniversary of Matthews birth. It was a shame that his birthday and BBQ clashed with McCarthys annual BBQ but it was still a brilliant occasion. Afterwards I enjoyed the rest of the night having beers and listening to the likes of Moby, and informing fluffer (of NSP), that I have a wide taste of dance music that goes beyond 2Unlimited.

Apart from that weekend I am planning a new project in which I need contributors details will be announced in the next 24 hours. Plus through neighbour Paul there will be pictures for my fashion section including me showing my feminine side again with a bit of assistance through the legendary Heidi Marshall. Keep in touch.
