The 17th March is St Patricks Day time to celebrate being Irish! If you don’t have any Irish ancestry that doesn’t matter, most of us can cobble together a connection to the Emerald Isle no matter how vague; my sister lived there for six months, I like Guinness and like House of Pain, practically makes me a leprechaun!
Gingers Are Becoming Stronger, Fitter, Faster They may not have many friends at school, they may be the last person you’d ever consider breeding with, they may not have a soul and they may not be able to go out on a sunny day without suffering third degree burns, so in theory they should have been breed out of existence.

I don’t know a single chap that doesn’t like at least one James Bond film. Who hasn’t secretly harboured a desire to be James Bond? But why is this? This post is dedicated to the real reason – Bond girls, Top Ten of all time. It is single mindedly based on the only true measure of a Bond girl, their [...]
Like Ying and yang rap needs balance, you have had the Top Ten East Coast Rap so now its time for the sunshine (and gin) drenched West coast. Looking at the last 25 years, the West coast tunes have not been as prolific but they have created some of the most iconic and heavy hitting rappers every to make there [...]
The last 25 years has seen rap or hip hop grow from back street lyrical ‘battles’ to a multi million dollar industry. Defined by frantic, poetic verse, precision scratching, fresh beats and stylish sampling, rap is not only a music genre but also has its own culture. Being an Adidas shod, Kangol wearing, gold rope festooned double hard homey from [...]
Throughout my school years my friends and I use to always have an argument that Steven Seagal could kick Jean Claude Van Damme’s ass back to Brussels. It was obviously conversation of the highest calibre with intelligent and valid points. All of which proving that indeed if they meet in the heat of battle, Seagal’s superior Aikido skill would dominate Jean-Claude Camille François Van [...]
OK so this is my guilty viewing secret here, I’m quite partial to sitting in front of the TV to watch Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman (and the other three Kari, Grant and Tory) knock out another awesome episode of Mythbusters. Oh yes, give me: a dash of guns, a heap of explosions, smattering of ridiculous myths, and a splash of out [...]
Are you looking to take your love for the movies that step further and bring it home in a big way by getting the latest Home Theater System? Sure you could maybe go out and buy some; socks, a box, buttons and some scissors to create your very own hand puppet show to entertain you and your friends. But then [...]
The 90s, a time of bucket hats, adidas trainers, white gloves, dodgy shell suits and dance music. Whether it was trance, house, techno, jungle, drum n base or rave; the 90s were synonymous with laser and pill powered dance parties. Love it or hate it, the sounds of the 90s dance culture got people moving and even uncoordinated white boys [...]
The world has lost a great deal of talent to untimely deaths and the music industry seems to suffer the most. These young stars not only influenced the music industry but often defined an entire generation. The strange thing is that a large proportion of these young and talented musicians or rockstars died prematurely at the age of 27, is [...]
More Than Just Music They say that music can soothe the soul and take away your worries but for many, music is even more than that. It can remind them of their first love, their favourite night out, or even trigger memories from their childhood (my dad use to sing Dean Martin to me when I was a youngster and bring’s back many a happy memory, [...]
Donald Trump is the face behind one of the most successful reality shows on American TV and also sports potentially the world’s largest comb over. It’s also a little ironic to have a man who claims to be a self made millionaire and who produces books such as “Think Big and Kick Ass in Business and Life” running the show. When in [...]
Cooking shows have come a long way from the simple two dimensional programme’s showing you how to break eggs and make meals that will give you a heart attack. The cooking phenomenon now makes superstars out of its culinary wizards allowing them to demonstrate not only their great skills in the kitchen but also their passion for cooking. Sure some [...]
Music is a funny thing, it can invoke so many emotions and bring back memories in an instant. Music research at Harvard has even been linked to helping patients recover from cardiac procedures. But there are certain singers out there who have made such an impression on their global audience that they will forever be immortalized in musical history.
Are you an avid fan of the hit series Top Chef (now fast approaching double figures in terms of series)? Have you always agreed with what Tom Colicchio, Gail Simmons, and Padma Lakshmi had had to say about the contestants and their recipes?
