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?

Food Review – Fuel located in Falmouth

  Falmouth has a fine selection of places to eat. This weekend my girlfriend and I went to Fuel to have lunch and check it out.   They had a very good menu with a nice selection of slightly posher than pub food.

Falmouth’s End of Summer Fireworks

I’ve just returned home from Falmouth’s End of Summer Firework display down at Swanpool beach. The fireworks were launched from a barge out in the bay, which added the added dimension of beautiful reflections. A massive crowd packed the beach to watch the epic firework display.
