Genie Smeany

“What do you mean I can have three wishes with provisos?” I quizzically ask the turquoise, all-powerful genie floating in front of me. “Well, you can have any three wishes that you long as they’re not too hard to fulfil” came a yawning reply from the mystical being. “Too hard?...But you’re a genie, one...

The drawing which got me hooked again

My inner artist lay dormant for many years after leaving school, I didn't create anything more spectacular than a stickman while playing hangman after finishing my GCSE's. Once I had stopped art classes in school, my sketching pretty much disappeared. Many, many years later (too many to disclose) a close friend of mine gave me... Continue Reading →

It’s just sitting there, away from all the other gifts, it doesn’t need their approval, out there on its own glowing in its pristineness. What’s in it?! “What is in you present”...

Wild Gorillaz!

I recently went to see one of my favourite bands of all time, Gorillaz, in concert at the London O2. This was one of the best events I have ever had the pleasure of attending. Great songs, great atmosphere and amazing guest appearances, unfortunately not from CLINT EASTWOOD though (terrible song reference I know, but... Continue Reading →

The New Arrival

Sarah is sat silently on the floor while her Uncle Gabby and Mad Sally perch on the edge of the three-piece looking down at her. Uncle Gabby’s real name is Dave, the origins of Gabby is still a mystery to this day, and Mad Sally is…well mad. Her hair looks like it’s been styled with... Continue Reading →
