Dear Kraken Rum,

Your advert in Dice magazine worked. Also, your rum works pretty good too.


NB: In this crazy over-saturated world I spend most of my time avoiding or ignoring advertising so it's quite nice when you actually get hooked and reeled in by an advert. Fair play, effective marketing.

Spread like butter...

Gash Mechanics Tutorial #1

There are some times where smashing something with a hammer using a knife as a drift is the only way to get the job done.
Bearing destroyed and inner race seized onto the axle in a steel against alloy kind of way. There was the tiniest edge visible and I'd tried all of my flatheads to get at it but to no avail. I'd looked at the knife a coupe of times but dismissed it for being the stupidest solution. Eventually, all other avenues exhausted, the knife was fucked but the job done. Don't try this at home kids.

There she is in all her glory, the first motorcycle I ever owned.

At least the first one I remember owning. I loved that scoot. I thought it was so cool the way the wings were the handlebars. It was a good mix of eagle and motorbike, doing justice to both or so I thought at the time. With the benefit of hindsight and the experience of around 25 years of motorcycling I have to say... I was right. Fucking cool!

If I knew how much they sell for now I'd have kept the box, sold it intact with the rest of the set and bought myself a real motorbike.

Just ate the most chilli sauce I've ever put on anything ever. Ghost Pepper Sauce; not as hot as the Mad Dog Inferno sauce but if you put enough on its close. The second world record I broke tonight- fastest beer I've ever drunk.
