Game of Thrones and why you NEED to watch it.

  There aren’t many television programs that I’m a die hard fan of… but Game of Thrones is one of them. I had heard a few people tell me how good it was but I hadn’t taken much notice. Then one rainy day I didn’t have much to do and decided to check it out. The opening scenes get you hooked massively and from then on, its a rollercoaster ride of viewing excitement. The characters are brilliant, some of the…

My all time favourite print

This is my favourite print ever, I have a large copy of it proudly on display in my Man Cave. I love the power of the waves and the overall composition. (top trivia – it also inspired the Quicksilver logo) Edit: Totally forgot to say what it was (doh) anywho it is – The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai

Lego Mini Figures

  Am I a big kid? No way, what are you talking about!

  Here it is, the long awaited part 2, BOOM:   Juke Box – The man cave needs tunes, the retro jukebox is the only worthy provider of said tuneage.

Three on Thursday – Incubus

This week its the turn of Incubus for Three on Thursday. Incubus are an Alt Rock band from California. They’ve kinda done the same thing as Red Hot Chili Peppers and started off kinda funky and heavy and have got a bit more “easier listening/mainstream” over their career. I personally prefer their Morning View/Make Yourself period, but do like their work from either side of this too.   Incubus – Wish You Were Here   Incubus- Privilege   Incubus –…
