Sometimes, and just sometimes… I do the right thing… This time the right thing for me comes in the form of helping raise awareness to the Animal Sanctuary in Windsor. The gorgeousness that is Tigerlilly has been running a Crowdfund Campaign to help raise funds to save the...

Cosplay Invasion Aug15

Cosplay Invasion

San Diego Comic Con has recently come to a close, marking the end of one of the biggest – if not the biggest – events of the comic enthusiast’s calendar. Though no longer on the fringes of the society – sales for comics both physical and online is creeping upon $800 million dollars per year in the United States – the comic book scene is still a little in the corner from the mainstream, most likely slurping on a slush-puppy with its nose deep inside the latest issue of Justice League. However comic conventions receive a lot more attention these days on social media through people sharing pictures of Cosplay. Cosplay is essentially...

Living in ScyFi

Living in SciFi When you stop and consider it, it is both wondrous and terrifying to see the extent to which our lives are conducted online and revolve around technology. Although this fact is no secret or great discovery, it is because we are so enveloped within technology, and in gradual stages become more and more so each year, that the import of this development can so easily slip our consideration. In 2014: we talk and share stories with our friends on social media; we converse with colleagues seated at the same table as us via Skype messenger; we find dates and hookups with apps; and ask our smartphones where we should go for supper...

The Quick Guide to Talking as if You Were a Poker Expert Jul13

The Quick Guide to Talking as if You Were a Poker ...

Poker could be the most popular game you can play in a casino. There are obvious other contenders, such as blackjack and even slot machines, but poker has a charm that a lot of people find alluring. That is not to say that everyone who sees this charm is a poker expert, but they can definitely sound like one with relative ease. In poker, appearances are just as important as the cards dealt. How’s your poker face looking? There are many varieties of poker, and arguably the most popular of these is Texas Hold’em. In Hold’em, each player receives two cards, known as ‘hole cards’ which are dealt face down, and there...

Dubrovnik’s old town: finding the ultimate snapshot Jul07

Dubrovnik’s old town: finding the ultimate snapsho...

One of the most exciting aspects of any holiday is documenting the adventures you have, whether in journal entries, by collecting tacky souvenirs, or, of course, by snapping away with your trusty camera, which should never be too far from your side in a place like Dubrovnik. Taking in the sights through a viewfinder doesn’t necessarily detract from the experience; often it reveals the energy or the mood of a place that can get lost in the bigger picture. With its dramatic history, quirky nooks and the absence of ugly shop signs, Dubrovnik is one of the coolest places to wield a camera, so here are a few shot ideas worthy of the holiday...

Come Play My Game Jun24

Come Play My Game

Everybody plays games right? I mean… even without wanting to we get sucked into some of them. I was actually chatting about that with a friend yesterday, and yes, we were talking about the damned Dating Game thing but I believe this is a VERY valid example… Sometimes we get sucked...

When The Lights Go Out Jun13

When The Lights Go Out

We’ve had a few losses in the family over the past year and whilst some of them actually floored me down I was never involved in the difficult tasks that were organising funerals and the like. Sorry bringing the vibe of the blog down but I guess this is actually important right? And I had A LOT to think whilst stuck in bed over the past couple of weeks… And yes, I am being overdramatic here but this DID cross my mind too and after reading the UK regulations for it all the first thing that crossed my mind was wow… I’d go crazy having to organise something like that… Losing a loved one is always difficult. Trying...

A little rivalry never killed anyone… Did it?!? ;-) Jun07

A little rivalry never killed anyone… Did it...

MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula 1 drivers, Lewis Hamilton & Nico Rosberg, are great rivals off the track as well as on it. Watch this behind the scenes video as Lewis and Nico work to stay ahead of their closest competition, whatever the situation! I’ve always been like that with my cousins too as kids. Always willing to push a little further to be able to claim the title of king of the castle. It would usually end up on a broken leg, of arm, flying through the air was common place and don’t get me started on the landings! Stunt double quality! (We actually all wanted to be stunt doubles at some point, wouldn’t that have...

Ronaldo’s Sruprise May29

Ronaldo’s Sruprise

Ronaldo received a surprise from fellow Brazilian football legend Bebeto as he filmed a video for PokerStars. The FIFA World Cup™ record goal scorer was surprising members of the public in a game of online poker, but had the tables turned on him by his former team mate. The surprised look on Ronaldo’s face was priceless! Well worth a watch if like me you are still a fan of the two ageing stars!!! ...

The One About (hatin...

For some god-forsaken reason there is this general consensus that I am some sort of dating expert or pick-up guru of some sort. I get enough messages and requests for input on it to make one think that would be the case. I mean, I have this friend that actually TAKES NOTES of my pick-up lines...

Getting Wet & W...

“So, Yuri, Do you Fancy coming and filming a ladies only gym class in the middle of Oxford street?” I think the invitation from Hanna at London Flashmobs was along these lines… I wasn’t going to say no was I?!?!?! The whole thing was just over 2 minutes long but hell...

After a whole week of #spaceshipadventure with Alpha Centauri I had a free weekend by myself with the Camper van… And some time to spend with the monkeys… So why not put the two together and see what we get? Our Mini Break took us back towards London to spend an afternoon with the...

I’m a sat in a coffee shop again… I have my headphones on blasting a song and another… The first song in my play list is set on repeat in my head though… because it’s how I feel. I am watching people pass and sipping on my coffee… I am struggling to...

Almost Human

Imagine a future in which androids will be so sophisticated they can perform tasks, any task, as well or better than any human. Is it scary or what?!?! And what if I told you that this future is not really too far away? On the streets of London, members of the public were invited to help beta-test the world’s first tweet-powered interactive holographic android in real-time by messaging it to @DroidDoThis. Cool huh?!?!  The result you can see in the video. What would YOU get this #AlmostHuman robot to do? I was sitting in the Common room at the hostel I am currently staying and one of the topics that came into conversation was...

The Maille Culinary Challenge #Mailleflavours May05

The Maille Culinary Challenge #Mailleflavours

Back in January I received an email talking about a culinary challenge going on during the Easter Holidays. First thing that crossed my mind was that it would be an  amazing idea to add to the whole Backpacking Experiment I’m going through, so I started coming up with ideas of recipes  for cooking on the go… Basic ingredients… Simple food but still with character… and most of all… Delicious! I ended up cooking it for my ExWife and Kids… But that is beside the point right?! The rules of engagement: Pick two ingredients from the list sent from Maille, come up with a recipe using them and execute! My...

Day four of the Spaceship Adventure and we are now in the last leg of Part One of our 500 mile journey. After having a whale of at time with the wild child that is The Uncivil Servant in Exeter and eating burgers as big as our hands accompanied by laughs and tales of Gay Pin-up Guys, Crazy...

You know when you are awake at 6 am after going to bed way gone 2am? And then you get up and find that you went to the supermarket and got LOADS of stuff that wasn’t on your list… And forgo the coffee?!? This is Sunday for me this week my friends… May the Forth Be With...

If  I had to choose one high point for the first part of our #SpaceshipAdventure it would have to be our visit to Durdle Door. Sorry being so upfront about it, but it is the truth. And I don’t know if it is because we were so tired, or if because the sun was shining , or because the...

The Castle Hop Apr25

The Castle Hop

It’s afternoon of day two in our Spaceship Adventure… and to be honest, we still have no idea what shape we want it to take… But it is taking some sort of shape… We squeezed all we could from Brighton and it was time to take the road. The next stop in the list was...

I have something for you to think about… Will you do that? I’d ask you to do that little thing for me… But that wouldn’t really be correct would it?!? I want you to do it for yourself… The reason I want you to do it for yourself is because you are the only one...

Early morning in Brighton and as I wake up I can already see that it will be a good day. The clouds have gone and I can see the sun shining… and apart from sliding out of the bed feet first we had a great night apart from the struggle to get the bed together in the dark we did have...

London to Brighton: Let the #SpaceshipAdventure begin! Apr20

London to Brighton: ...

Alarms that fail, Broken Tubes, hours of delay, Traffic jams and rain were most definitely NOT part of our adventure plans for  the first week of Spaceship Adventures… But they were nowhere near enough to dampen our Spirits for the adventure ahead. Your Captain Yuri, his Copilot Yuri...

And They Say Romance is Dead… Apr19

And They Say Romance...

I’m not going to say a lot… But watch the video and you will realise, like me, that maybe… just maybe… Romance isn’t dead… about 160 dancing (most of which, like me, have never even seen the happy couple before) will probably say the same… The power...

Let’s Grow Wild

Grow Wild is an exciting four-year campaign to bring people together to sow UK native wild flowers. “Why?” You ask, when we can plant tomatoes and fruits etc? Well… if you take in consideration that one in three mouth-fulls of food actually relies in pollinating insects that can mean a huge difference. Grow Wild is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and led by the Royal Botanic Gardens in Key and they believe that we can transform where we live  bringing colour and surprise to our streets. By Growing Wild, we can turn our gardens and windowsills into wildlife-friendly wild flower patches. We’re lucky to have some...
