Everything that starts with T ... 05/04/2017

Fix for Tat

Everything that starts with T ... Tattoo Fixers : Tattoo Fixers is quite a unique and artistic show about members of the public getting cover ups on their bad tattoos, three tattoo artist's cleverly turn a really awful mistaken tattoo into a genuine masterpiece. Some of these people go into the parlour with unbelievable tattoos that they regret having done in the first place and are in desperate need to get rid, whether they've been done whilst drunk on holiday (this is the case for most of them) or as part of a bet or even a joke, these people are in desperate need for these three tattoo artists to cover up their bad mistakes with works of art. It's quite a clever artistic show because some of the tattoos that need to cover up aren't always that easy to cover, it depends on what part of the body the tattoo is on (the size and area of it can be really painful for the customer) and it depends on certain colouring and boldness which can make the cover up slightly more difficult...but the tattoo artist's don't seem to have any trouble covering them at all, of course. All three tattoo artist's seem have slightly different ways of design and style when it comes to boldness, shine and colour, the new and improved cover up tattoo from three extremely talented artist's makes it seem as if the customers old mistaken tattoo never existed in the first place. Already having a couple of tattoos myself I absolutely love this show, I would be flicking through the channels on Tuesday and would sometimes find an episode ...

Under My Skin - Avril Lavigne 20/04/2016

Under My Skin!!

Under My Skin - Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne Under My Skin Format - Audio CD No. of Discs - 1 Release - 2004 Label - Arista RCA Records Price - £2.45 from Amazon Avril Lavigne's 2nd Album: This is Avril Lavigne's second successful album with Arista records label, this one was released two years after her debut album 'Let Go' the Canadian rock chick singer and songwriter released 'Under My Skin' in 2004. The genre's in this second album are alternative rock and post grunge, it's another well made and performed rock album with loads of great tracks throughout, those which are very memorable indeed. 'Under My Skin' is another of those Avril Lavigne albums that had successful tracks in the charts, it became number one on the US billboard 200 albums chart when it first debuted. The second album sold over 12 million copies world wide and was ranked in the list of top selling albums of the 2000's which of course I wasn't surprised because it's a great album and received many acclaims. It got a lot of positive responses from fans and critics because of its darker side to rock which seemed heavier in concept and sounded more of like rock metal then just ordinary rock, pop rock and punk rock, it had that darker edge to it which gave it a whole fresh look and vibe. Avril's second album first received a certified double platinum from RIAA (Record Industry Association of America) then soon after going up to triple platinum. I was over joyed to hear that it had sold a massive 3.2 million copies in America and also ...

Let Go - Avril Lavigne 15/04/2016

Let Go!!!

Let Go - Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne Let Go Format - Audio CD No. of Discs - 1 Release - 2002 Label - Sony Music / Arista Records Price - £5.40 from Amazon Avril Lavigne: An American rock and pop singer from Ontario Canada, Avril Lavigne first appeared on stage at the age of 15 with fellow Canadian singer and song writer Shania Twain. Her middle name is Ramona which I find quite unique, she was born in September 1984 in a small Ontario town of Belleville. At the age of 16 Avril signed with Arista Records music label and with them she signed a two album recording contract. Avril's genres cover pop punk, pop rock and alternative rock and she is known for playing on guitar, piano and drums as well as vocals. She is and always will be known as a punk and rock chick singer, the genres of her records and how she performs on stage and in her videos makes Avril one of the most unique and extraordinary singers to have stepped into the music industry. To me, Avril Lavigne is and always will be my number one singer of all time, when I saw her for the first time on the music channel singing 'Complicated' I just fell in love with her unique voice and in video personality. Back then, she came across as this cool young rock chick that didn't give a damn and all she wanted to do is rock the guitar and the music, it wasn't long after that the nation fell in love with Avril's unique style of music too. Her voice is so different from every other singer I have heard, she has that cool edge and distinctive voice ...

The World of Paranormal

Share Paranormal Experiences Opening the Spiritual World: It wasn't that long ago I wrote about some of my spooky experiences and sightings and there were some on my families experiences included in there as well, this time I want to talk about some sightings I have not yet mentioned or not said too much about. I also want to talk about my take on the paranormal and what I really believe is happening to those who have passed but not gone over to the spiritual world...believe it...or don't believe, but its happening all around us. I've witnessed these spiritual beings and I've felt the slightest of presence from the unknown, I'll tell you this have to feel it and see it to actually believe it and if you don't at the may be a believer after this. The World of Paranormal: An invisible world lives among us.....trapped souls who never made it to the other side still walk around in our world without real human existence or real human sighting, only a brief movement or a shadow lets us know that they are really there. Specs of orbs flash by and catch the human eye by surprise, whether its trying to scare or escape, we still catch a first glimpse of the paranormal world. We try to explain what we have just seen and even try to justify it by using coincidences and excuses, we don't want to believe that the light we'd just seen is not so innocent. When there's nothing else that shines in the room and there is no other movement you begin to analyse the situation and wonder what the ...

Everything that starts with K ... 19/03/2016

The 1st of Three Great Guys...

Everything that starts with K ... KEVIN C The Greet: He's the 1st of three great guys that I work around, it goes way back to the 14th January 2014 when BOC first opened in the area. On my first day at B.O.C I was greeted by a tall dark haired man with a tattoo on the front of his forearm, he had that look of leadership and a rather calm personality...this was on first impressions. I shook his hand and he opened with the first line: Kevin: "Good Morning sir, I'm Kevin the manager of B.O.C" Me: "Good Morning, I'm Jason, nice to meet you...I've been recruited to work here by my area manager" Kevin: "Do you know what you need to do?" Me: "Yes, Grant has already shown me around" Kevin: "Good, Good...I believe me and you will get on fine" Me: "Right then, lets begin" Kevin: "If you need anything, just ask!" Me: "Ok, I will!" From that first greet I had no idea how cool this guy was going to be, he is a down to earth, straight talking no nonsense guy from North London. Kevin is one of the nicest guys anyone is ever going to meet, he is very fair, very reasonable guy who makes every around him feel at ease. Just one thing you don't do...cross him...he takes no bull from anyone and will tell you how it is in the nicest possible way. Best Management: Knowing Kevin for over 2 years now, I ask this question... Who would want to get on the wrong side of him? he does no harm to anyone and besides, he would give even the most difficult person the time of day. He is by far the best at dealing with customers, as soon ...

Moral Dilemmas 14/03/2016

Best Night to Moral Dilemma

Moral Dilemmas Right...There's something I really need to get out in open because it's been niggling away at me for years. I have not shared this with anyone apart from the one other person involved, I haven't even told of this experience to any member of the family, friends, work colleges or people over the garage to where I live. I feel if I was to say anything to either of them about this they would start to jeer me up and say stuff like 'nice one at least you got some' trying to objectify the other person involved which I do not like. I know I can be open and very honest when it comes to dirty limericks, bowel movements and very well outspoken but, I am the most respectable human being when it comes to the opposite gender. This what I am about to tell you happened many years ago and I feel I can finally share it now because this is a wonderful community and everyone is very, very respectful. I don't know how I kept it to myself for so long, its not like its a big secret but, I definitely wont be telling the guys over the garage because of what they might say. I proberly will not be mentioning it to any of my brothers work mates either (even though we've been out for a drink on so many occasions) they would proberly start to take the mick and ask all of these awkward questions which I would not like to answer, I have more respect and dignity than that. Lastly, It winds me up the way other people talk about the opposite sex, saying stuff like 'go and nail her' you do not talk to women ...

Member Advice on Tattoos 11/03/2016

To Chameleons And Back!!

Member Advice on Tattoos Advice on Tattoos: First off, It depends on what you decide to have done, where you have it and how much it will cost. I got my first tattoo done back in august 2010, the initials JJ on my left forearm which means Jason James, my first and middle name. When I had this done I was unsure what the experience was going to be like, whether it was going to really hurt for one and how much it will cost. I must have paid a deposit price back then but cant quite remember how much it was, I can only remember the price of the actual tattoo which was £40. As I was sitting in the chair for the first time getting the letters JJ etched on my arm I kept thinking, this isn't too bad I thought it would be much more painful than this, it does feel like a sharp point on your skin but nothing too painful. Before you have one done make sure you have eaten first because it will make you feel better inside, you need that little bit of energy to get you through it. They give you a form to fill out with different kinds of conditions at the bottom (tick yes or no if you have any) make sure you let them know if you have any of these conditions, it will make them aware of what to look out for before starting the procedure. I only get tattoos that mean something, like my initials and the recent one, my birthstone sapphire symbol with its meaning behind it. Once the tattoo is then have to go to your local pharmacy and buy a certain cream to put on it, this makes it look nice and it heals in ...

Discovery Jalapeno Chillies in Vinegar 09/03/2016

Spice, Wind and Backside Fire!!!

Discovery Jalapeno Chillies in Vinegar THE SPICY PEPPER: I tried my hardest not to write a review on these because of the effect they have on me...But, after some unsettling bowel movements and marathon sprints to the bog I just had to express the way I feel about them. Strangely, I could only eat these if they were on a cheese and tomato pizza with other toppings, but as far as eating them out of the! I paid £1.29 for a jar of sliced green peppers only for them to immediately unsettle my bowels and burn my backside. It only takes about two small slices to set me racing out of the room and into the toilet, trying not to trip over in the process. I do make it in time but its the constant running after I've eaten them out of the jar...certainly wont be doing that again. Problem is not knowing when its coming and when it does it tends to give me that signal of wind first for about a solid hour, after just two slices I am sitting there blowing here and blowing, just wondering when it will give me that signal to run...If so, I want to make it in time. The jar I did have (recycled it now, but did put done the information contained on it) was tall slim and with a black lid and the contents of the jar was filled up to the top with slices of green pepper in vinegar. Its overall weight was 480g with the drained weight of it being 240g. It has a little message on the jar saying 'refrigerate after opening & eat within 14 days...which I did! It has the nutrition information above that message..... Typical value ...

Birds Eye Potato waffles 03/03/2016

Waffle Me!

Birds Eye Potato waffles WHERE IS THAT WAFFLE? Every now and then I go to my local co operative down the road from me to do some morning shopping. I scout and browse the aisle until I reach the freezer section, as I'm looking through the frozen section I see a lovely box of 10 waffles sitting between the sausages and potatoes. Sometimes the co op near me can be quite useless for their stuff because sometimes I try and get hold of a box waffles in there and strangely they sell out of them, I know their really nice but I didn't think waffles can be that popular and just sell out...strange?! Silly part about it...the waffles hadn't been seen in there for quite a while, until recently. So, I picked them up, put them in my basket and continued on with my shopping. When it was time to head to the checkout, I realised something.....I could do with another box. So I step out of the queue (I was next by the way) and I headed back off down the frozen section to pick up another box of 10, I wanted 20 you see (that's waffles not boxes...just image If I went to the checkout with 20 boxes of waffles, they would either think two things...he's a greedy so an so or he's a potato junkie) so, It was just 2 boxes of 10. Whilst paying the woman I noticed £1.69 came up on the waffles, I can usually get a box of 10 for £1...So, that would normally work out 10p a waffle. I began to haggle, I mentioned to the woman about the price of these waffles (proberly thought I had a cheek) I said I can get these for only a pound ...

Poems of Sadness 29/02/2016

The Screaming Fields

Poems of Sadness THE LAST BATTLE - Part One: The time has come To step out of the trenches, And fight back hard Along those blood filled fences. Many have fallen Crying out in pain, Stumbling over lifeless bodies In torrential rain. Blinded by the flashing Of unforgiving lightning, To be hit at anytime Makes this war so frightening. You see your comrade buddy Falling to the floor, The enemy once again Has picked off one more. Screaming out in anger As you start to fire, Comrades falling all around you Body count is getting higher. As you strike the enemy With a multiple of shots, Another life being taken Another life is being lost. You look around and witness The blood ridden field in shock, Many soldiers have fallen All have been left to rot. Shot comes from nowhere Right through the rain and dark, Hitting you in the chest Just inches from your heart. Rain falls down harder As the thunder continues to rumble, clutching at your chest As you begin to stumble. You find it hard to breath And slowly fall to the ground, Looking in complete shock At your blood soaked hand. As you fall back in pain Your head takes a thud, Hitting the ground hard And into the mud. Your life begins to slip away As you stare up at the rain, There's nothing you can do now To stop this unrelenting pain. Your eyes begin to close And you start to drift away, Why did it have to come to this Why did the war end this way. THE FIELDS OF HEAVEN - Part Two: You begin to come around You slowly open up your ...
