The Man Cave

Unfortunately in England, you can’t be outside 100% of the time and sometimes have to retreat to your Man Cave. Here you can read about DIY, Music, Entertainment and VW Transporters!

  It’s almost Christmas time! Are you prepared? Sent your cards? Bought all the presents? Sorted the dinner? Great, then you’re ready for pretty much everyone’s favourite holiday! Christmas is amazing, you can’t deny it. What makes it fantastic is that quality family time, eating Christmas dinner, giving gifts, watching Christmas movies and of course playing games. Bored of charades, monopoly and trivial pursuit? Yeah, we all get fed up of the same ol’ games every year. Well, I’m about…

  If you’re a modern outdoorsman or someone with a hectic lifestyle, no doubt you’ll have become stuck in between the rock and the hard place which is the smart phone. You don’t ever feel more at one with nature than when you’re totally off the grid; whilst at the same time, everyone nowadays (for better or worse) feels as if they have a missing limb once they reach 0% battery. In the modern world a phone isn’t just for…

    With the clocks now set back the light is normally long gone by the time I get back from work, team this up with weather that is only good for ducks and you’ve got the possibility of some boring evenings in. Throughout the summer my friends and I would spend our evenings in or by the water, adventuring, cycling or enjoying the beach; it’s sad to think that we’ve got a long few months before we can get…

  Matt and Kim are a sort of indie dance duo from Brooklyn, New York. I first heard their song ‘Cameras’ and really dug it. Cameras is all about the modern phenomenon of constantly photographing everything (something I have a love/hate relationship with), it says how when you’re having a really awesome time, that the thought of taking photos doesn’t ever really occur to you. I then checked out loads of their other songs and really liked them. I love…

  I bought my VW T4 spoiler ages ago, I had it sprayed by a proffesional to the same colour as my bodywork paint (VW Tornado Red). Top Tip – If you want to find the colour code for your T4 van, just look under the steering wheel, it will be written on a label on the black plastic surround.   I had been putting off fitting the rear spoiler onto the van as it’s a bit of a scary…

  I’ve recently bought myself a new Olloclip 3-in-1 for my iPhone 5c. You may remember back last year I wrote a review for my 4s Olloclip, I thought it was a great, simple, easy way to get really cool photos on your iphone. Fortunately, the Olloclip for the 5c is just the same. I’ve already given this new Olloclip a good test and it lives upto its predecessors. The photos are all equally awesome. There are just a couple…

  This week Three on Thursday features a band that I’ve briefly written about once before… it’s only Pearl Jam! If you’ve been in a cave for the last twenty odd years and didn’t know, Pearl Jam are an amazing rock band who in the year 1990 formed in America, to be more precise in the state of Washington and to be even more accurate in the coastal city of Seattle. Since then they’ve released ten awesome albums. The ones…

  This is what the roof lining of my VW T4 looked like almost two years ago when I bought the van: dull, standard, generic, grey and all round generally lame…   This is what it looks like now:   Sticker Art AKA Stickerbombing I’ll admit stickerbombing is a bit marmite and I can see why, done well it looks awesome but done poorly it does look a bit rubbish. Personally I much prefer it on the interior than the…

  Formed in 2005, Nico Vega are an alt rock band from LA in the US of A. Being fronted by the awesome female singer Aja Volkman, they are one of my favourite female fronted rock bands. They’ve also toured with one of my others, Metric and would sit very nicely in a playlist together. Nico Vega have recently released their second studio album Lead To Light, which is good but a bit too poppy for me and nowhere near…
