The Return of the
Hello everyone. How are you all? Good! Glad to hear it. Me? Well…… When writing my age I have added one since the last time I spoke to you. I have had a wee break. I went on a little holiday, did a little home improvement and went to see a few gigs, oh, and recorded a single (more to come on that). But now you have all of my attention…..(sort of!)
I have started working on a couple of things now. So in the next few days look out for an overdue review of the recent Graham Coxon gig and my yearly viewing of Oceansfall at the Wee Red Bar. I’m hoping to write about my experience at the recording studio and I fancy maybe tackling Saturday night TV and the lack of new quality shows (or is it something else?). Will also review any films I see. Heard this new comic book film that’s out is ok, something about a Justice League or something ;D
Till later this week,
Hello all. You know those times in life where everything happens at once and time is not on your side. Well it’s looking like April is going to be one of those times. unfortunately it means the blog takes a back seat to other exciting projects, a wee holiday and turning 25.
Basically there will be little activity for the next week or so BUT my promise to you all is that I will pick up the pace again once I have been on my wee holiday. So about the 23rd or so. There maybe a film review or something small if I can get time.
Hope you are all well out there,
Wait for me……..
(p.s. The picture is not really relevant but made me laugh when looking for something that was.)
What is writing this blog?
So over the last few days for one reason or another I have been absent from my blog. A mixture of illness, being social (I know, this also surprised me!) and working on other projects has meant that poor wee DCOTU took a bit of a back seat over the last week or so. What surprised me is how this has effected me. I started to feel guilty. Its a bit like neglecting a Tamagotchi, it doesn’t hurt anyone to leave it alone but it some how feels wrong. So it got me thinking, if this was purely something that I do to pass time and have no real desire to keep a regular input then why was it eating at me that I had not posted in a couple of days.
I suppose it comes down to enjoying writing and having people look at my articles. Its addictive to see how many people have visited your page and when someone comments or says in passing that they like what you are doing it drives you to do more of the same. I do not believe that I am a good writer, I like to think I am at least a tad entertaining. So I suppose the best way to get better is to practice. Where better to do so than on this blog.
In a long round about way this is an apology to you, my loyal readers, for not doing anything for a few days (not sure any of you actually mind!) and to myself for being neglectful of something that gives me joy. I resolve to not leave entries as long in future. In fact I think I will work on a few just now. Maybe one later or tomorrow (then again I have promised such things before this week!)
Anyway, till next time
What a sleepy week!
Well, I managed the 7 days. At points they were hard, especially at work and in the mornings. I have started to write up my paper and will post it tomorrow.
Also had my first mug of coffee in a week this morning and it was amazing!
Later today – Muppets Review
Tomorrow – A (Kinda) Scientific Paper on The effects of Caffeine deprivation
So it begins……
Right. So for my next (kinda) Scientific Paper I am going to look at the effect that caffeine has on me. To do this I have had a few days of drinking more than my usual coffee and tea intake to see if there was a difference. Not really. But now the real pain begins. Today is the first day of NO CAFFEINE! So no Coffee. No tea while watching the TV. Not even my usual Superman mug of green tea in the morning. This is day one and after seven days (or how many I manage) I will write-up my findings.
So how was today? Was it an easy day. No, I think I picked the worst first day I could have. I woke up a little hung over from a leaving do the night before. Well the hangover is not from the party but from the cocktails that were consumed and the lack of food (school boy error!). So I had that kind of hangover that a cup of Coffee sorts right out….. dam. I can tell you I was so close to bucking after just 23 minutes of being conscious on first day. But I resisted and the walk to work cleared my head. Fine. So work would be fine. Nope! I was basically manning the doors to tell people we were closed. After see the twelfth heart broken child who couldn’t get into our wee science centre I wanted to cry into a cup of tea BUT NO! I resisted again! Win!
So I have made it to now. 6pm. 10 hours down. The next few should be fine dinner and the like but later. We have Caramel buttons to eat. I will want tea more than anything else at that point. Please, just say a little prayer for me tonight so that I can over come temptation and continue at least into Day 2!
For updates follow on twitter or facebook and see how I manage through this impossible task!
Till next time
Dark Centre Of The Universe is back! Woop!
I have changed provider and format. Rather than a big old site I was stuggling to fill, it will now take the form of a blog page. Most of the content will be by me (Fall) but I hope to have the odd article from others and i might re-post some of the older articles from the previous site.
So watch this space for more to come as I suss out this new format!
Till then all the best.
