Fightstar

Playing On The Friday Night Project, 10pm Channel 4 on 4th February
I was totally astounded when I heard Fightstar play live on last night! I was expecting them to be ok, but the radio would say they were rubbish anyway. But in actual fact; they were utterly utterly crap. Charlie proved that his voice isn’t powerful enough without the help of two other guys singing at the same time; the backing singer guy proved that he could sing totally flat; and the band altogether proved that they cannot write a song. For their launch song, you’d think they’d make it good wouldn’t you? Perhaps even the best song on the album; so if this is the standard to expect, I’m really not going to bother listening out for any more. The only thing that might rescue them is if they stop singing live. Perhaps the actual single recorded in the studio and fiddled with cleverly, sounds better; but I wouldn’t know as I am yet to hear it on the radio.
I’m sorry Charlie, but you should’ve stuck with Busted. I get the feeling that Charlie wanted to be a lot cooler than Busted, but he should’ve looked at his industry. By the time Take That split up they were definitely credible, and bordering on cool; and with the advantage that Busted were an original type of band, I think they would’ve hit that ‘cool status’ quite quickly. It really is a shame that he didn’t stick at it.

Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
My Cornwall photo on canvas! Printed by Printerpix
October 6, 2016
Chris and I are very fussy about art for our walls, and we don’t always have the same taste. We compromise by never ending up getting anything! However, when the opportunity came up to have one of my photographs blown up and printed onto canvas, I was really excited by it. I have a massive 60% discount code at Printerpix for you at the end of this post. I chose a picture I took during our recent campervan trip to Cornwall. The old disused mine is easy to find on the North coast road near Morvah. It’s a popular spot for rock-climbers and hundreds passed us on the footpath towards the cliffs, lugging their gear with them. It was fairly early in the morning when we went photo-spotting, and I turned away from the sea and looked back at this ruined mine building….
Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
