IMG_4621I’m Steve and I am from Scotland which is currently part of the United Kingdom.

This is a photo of my recent visit to Stockholm, Sweden. It was taken near the Royal Palace and I am walking towards it – embracing the sights, sounds and culture of this wonderfully amazing European country.

Notice how I am choosing to walk towards what my European neighbour has to offer me.

Notice how my back is turned as I am walking towards this European capital.

Europe – I’m coming to get you!

UK – I turn my back on you!

I’m Steve and I am from Scotland!

#NationalSendANudeDay – Here’s Mine

IMG_0380It’s #NationalSendANudeDay and it has reminded me of the leaked nude photos of celebrities that happened last year.

Matt Smith – the eleventh actor to play the Doctor in the BBC science fiction television programme Doctor Who was one of the victims of the nude photo online hack shenanigans that was a huge scandal. This got me thinking – if it can happen to a Time Lord who has saved the universe so many times then it could happen to anyone…

It started off with celebrities but then everyday people were having their rude snaps uploaded either by someone hacking their Snap Chat account or by a disgruntled ex in what is being called “Revenge Porn“.

Since I like to be in control of my own destiny (and nakedness) I’m not going to wait until some nerdy hacker uploads me and my bits. No, I’m going to get in first and post my own snap on my own terms.

If everyone else in the world follows suit (it could be called #birthdaysuit) then we will have beaten the hackers – next step Terrorists!

I normally include pictures in beside the text of a post. However, because (a) 99.99% of people probably don’t want to see a picture that has me completely naked in it and (b) I’m going to keep the offending image on one server only.

So, you have the choice – click here ONLY if you want to see the photo…

An Open Letter To The Daily Star – Re: Eurovision

Dear Daily Star,

Thanks for bringing to the public’s attention that there could perhaps be a security threat from ISIS to the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, Sweden this year. However, your headline sucks – whoever wrote it and also whoever approved it to go ahead, should hang their heads in shame!

This is the headline with a link to the article…


A play on words incorporating the 1969 winner, Lulu and her song Boom Bang A Bang. It’s simply disgraceful!

It’s shameful because many people have already died in terrorist attacks throughout Europe. 

It’s sad because this news reported by REAL newspapers regarding this story has actually made fans who are attending the show this year scared, me included – for the first time might I add, yet you appear to be trivialising it!

Shame on all involved in this story from Daily Star! Nul points to you! See, I can be a smart arse too I just don’t make light of potentially tragic and devastating situations to try and sell more newspapers which by the way most people these days don’t read/believe anyway! Dumb-asses!

Stay safe everyone in Stockholm – see you there!

ISIS – fuck off!

Back In A Bit – I’m Going Up The Magic Faraway Tree…

the-magic-faraway-tree-collection-enid-blyton-4-book-set-pack-14362-pEnid Blyton’s “Magic Faraway Tree” books are set for the big screen!

It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited about reading the news that a new film is going into production but when I heard that a live action version of Enid Blyton’s “Magic Faraway Tree” books are set for the big screen I almost peed my pants…

I, as I’m sure many others did, grew up reading all the books that this amazing woman wrote. From “The Famous Five” to “The Secret Seven” and all the others in between I loved them all.

The Magic Faraway Tree” books were by far my favourite and now it is still one of the few books I own.

The stories follow a group of children and their adventures at the top of a tree in an enchanted forest and include characters such as Silky the fairy, Moonface, Dame Washalot and Saucepan Man. Pure genius!

At the very top of the tree they discover a ladder which leads them to a magical land. This land is different on each visit, because each place moves on from the top of the tree to make way for a new land. Endless adventures…

 

Sam Mendes’ production company are the ones who will bring this fantastic fantasy series to life and I for one cannot wait! In fact I might just read the book again starting now.

Enid Blyton died in 1968 but her books will live on forever and the magic now lives on at an exhibition in Cantebury.

Thank you Enid!
