Wordpress... Bah Humbug.

Well for the past 3 or 4 hours I've been messing around with photos from the last couple of gigs I've been to. After getting them all resized etc ready for the website I thought I would post a couple of reviews with a photo with each. Well think again...
A while ago I got the idea of having a couple of seperate blogs, one for general day to day stuff and nonsense and another for keeping all things music related on and try to keep the two seperate. So, I tried a wordpress blog for the music one just keeping it to myself for a bit until I decided if I liked it.
At first I was quite impressed with wordpress but now I'm not too sure if I'm going to use it, because everytime I try and do something there always seems to be a problem like the 2 hours I've just wasted writing the reviews on it and then losing them due to an error at wordpress' end.
Bah Humbug...

Hurrah, Boo and Yawn.

The last few weeks have been a bit hectic and I simply never got round to switching the computer on most nights let alone posting something. With starting a new job a few weeks ago everything has been a bit all go, so a quick few points of note from the last couple of weeks,
  • Started new job and enjoying it so far!, (Hurrah!)
  • Had to do a couple of induction and safety courses, (Boo!, yawn)
  • Heard that Peter had actually finished re-installing the universe!, (!!!)
  • Been to a couple of gigs over the last couple of weeks and been knackered at work,
  • Off to another gig tonight in about an hour, so hopefully will have some time over the weekend to get some photos and reviews done.

Hang Saddam? Let's Hang Dave Allen!

This was the first thought that came to my mind this morning when I saw the headlines on most of the daily papers.

The Comedian Chairman Dave Allen
Most people would associate the name Dave Allen with the late great comedian but unfortunately for all us Sheffield Wednesday supporters we are having to put up with our own comedian of a chairman and for the last few weeks he says he has been searching and interviewing various managers for the right man for the job of taking us back up the Championship and onto the Premiership.

After the sacking of fans favourite Paul Sturrock who was one of the best managers we've had in a long time, he has appointed in my view "a yes man" in Brian Laws. Wednesday are unbeaten in the last four games (3 wins and a draw) with a virtually fully fit squad for the first time since Paul Sturrock took over and for me it's still Paul Sturrock's team.

The chairman states that he was impressed by Brian Laws' views on football and how it should be played, he then goes on about him being from the Brian Clough school. He has never managed a club like ours and only been with smaller clubs like Grimsby Town and Scunthorpe United playing a lower level of football, very similar to Chris Turner.

He is not Brian Clough and never will be and is going to find it very hard to win over a lot of Wednesday fans (this one included)...

Me and The View in the NME online

Whilst hunting around the internet I stumbled across a link leading to a review of The View gig at the Raigmore Motel that I recently posted about. Being that it was the 1st time ever a gig from Inverness has been covered by the nme and I was there I thought I'd see what they said about it and the bonus in the whole thing is that I'm in the photo they have used from the gig!

If you look to the left of the security guy with the white shirt on I'm looking down at my camera taking the photos for my site!
