Upgrading VW Transporter T4 Speakers

  One of the very first mods I did to my T4 was to upgrade the dash speakers. This wasn’t a permanent solution to the lack of good tunes in the van, but as a very easy and temporary fix – it’s a must. The standard head unit and dash speakers are as rubbish as you can get, so upgrading them is essential. I’d recommend getting the best head unit you can afford. The speakers are a bit more flexible…

Ale Review – Cornish Mutiny from Wooden Hand Brewery

  I met up with a friend today for a catch up. As we were in Falmouth we decided to pop down to The Front. When we arrived I scanned their every changing selection of beers. I plumped for Cornish Mutiny by Truro’s Wooden Hand Brewery as I’ve had a selection of their ales before and they’re always top notch. I had also just walked past a massive billboard advertising their brewery on Killigrew street (so subliminal advertising might have…

Three on Thursday – Darwin Deez

  This weeks Three on Thursday is the fantastic although fairly unknown Darwin Deez. They’re an indie band from New York. I love their uplifting, creative sound and the singer Darwin’s quirky look. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them live, which is a splendid experience, they pause and do cool little dances in between songs and are just generally, totally rad. (They also make awesome music videos) All of these songs are off their self titled first album: Darwin…

Christmas is Coming…

  A very short post, but today I popped into Asda. Not really a noteworthy story, but I then spotted my first mince pie of the season. I didn’t purchase said mince pie. I think it’s got to be at least October, if not November.

My Modded Kayak Tackle Box

  Now this post isn’t about what is contained within the box, it’s purely about the box itself. I have a few tackle boxes, one for storing spares at home, one for spinning, one for rigs and one for kayak fishing. My kayak tackle box started off as a fairly standard double sided tackle box. What is most important to me in a kayak tackle box, is to keep everything safe in the event of a capsize. So when choosing…

Deftones – Romantic Dreams

  What’s cooler than a guy skating around the city at night to the Deftones? I really don’t think there is a video on youtube at the moment that is as awesome. It’s directed by filmmaker Brett Novak and stars the skater Jason Park. Romantic Dreams is off Deftones’ album Koi No Yokan. Enjoy.

My Top Five Graphic Novels

  What’s that graphic novels are for geeks? Well maybe some, but not all! Anyway aren’t geeks suppose to be cool now anyway? I love graphic novels, the best ones are sublime, page after page of beautiful art and story telling. If you haven’t ever read one, then you seriously need to pick one out of this list and have a look. Yeah sure there are some nerdish graphic novels out there but none of the books on this list…

Human Slingshot

I don’t know what makes this video so cool. Is it the great filming and edit? The awesome music? Or is it just the fact that it’s an amazing HUMAN SLINGSHOT! Who knows?
