In other news, that was quite possibly my first Tumblr post this year.

I would really like to write something. Reviews, features, fiction - whatever. I just can’t seem to find prolonged inspiration.

Bane and His Stuntman

Cannot tell you how much I love this. 

OH SHIT.

That is totally Buster ‘The Huddersfield Hurricane’ Reeves. Isn’t it?

Great spot. What a hero that guy is.

musicandalike:

Earlier this year I submitted a short story, called ‘The Wannabe Shamus’ to the Costa Book Awards. Alas, I haven’t made the shortlist. I’d like to think it’s because I’m so edgy and underground, but in reality it’s probably because I swear quite profusely from the outset. 

The Wannabe Shamus follows Max on his misguided journey to become a hard-boiled private eye a la Philip Marlowe.

You can read my story here, if you like.

(Warning: contains strong language, and northern vernacular throughout, lad)

Have a look at my non-award winning, sweary story if you want.

I’ll start off my blog with a few of my past illustrations. My designs mainly revolve around nature, animals, patterns and black and white. Any feedback would be more than welcome! :)

Pepe Reina is sad because after throwing a punch at the air in frustration, Suarez fell over down the other end of the pitch.

HA.

Amazing.

I laughed at this too. Definitely a strong one.

Is music radio dead?

davejames:

For anyone that follows me I’d be grateful if you will tell me if you think music radio is dead, lacking or if you do listen what stations/shows do you listen to.
Reposting muchly appreciated as well.

TA! 

Dave wants to know, so tell him. I’m also reblogging this to remind me to write my opinion later - I’m heading out the door in a minute, and I’d rather give him a decent response, ‘cause Dave’s the man.

I’ve actually nearly finished my short story for the Costa competition. I’ve pretty much written the whole thing yesterday and today, and I’m really pleased with myself that I will have actually completed a piece of fiction, as I normally sack them off after a chapter or two.

Now I need to decide some unimportant things like the name. Any suggestions? It’s about a man who wants to be a Philip Marlowe-esque private detective, even though he lives in Yorkshire in 2012. 

I’m thinking:

- The Wannabe Shamus

- The Yorkshire Peeper (Like the ripper, y’know?)

- or maybe I could use a semi-poignant line from the book?

I well should have based it in Shoreditch, then I could have called it ‘The Shoreditch Shamus’. That’s an opportunity missed.
