This week I’ve been indulging in the most primitive of coastal pastimes, skimming stones. It’s one of those brilliant activities that everyone and their dad is a professional at. My girlfriend and I went down to a beach on the south coast when the sea was mighty flat and practiced our skills. Everybody has an opinion on the two main skimming elements: Stone choice and throwing technique. I’m definitely of the “get low to the ground and chuck it…

  In Greek Mythology, Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian Gods (and little brother to Zeus). He is ruler of the ocean and is called the “God of the Sea”. Poseidon is usually depicted as an old, angry man with curly hair, a beard, carrying a mega pointy trident. I’ve always thought that Poseidon has a bit of an image problem.

Inspired by the constant discussion about the weather I decided to purchase this awesome T shirt from 8 Ball.   If for some reason you’ve managed to miss the near constant stormy weather, I’ve been kind…

My brother came down for the festive period and had a really cool selection of tees, which spanned funny, cult, obscure, geek, film, TV and games. I was intrigued as to where he had got these T shirts as I hadn’t seen the designs before, they clearly weren’t the ones you get in HMV that you see loads of other people with. That’s when he told me…
