    Derek Acorah – Famous Pet Pyschic…?

     Posted in What were you thinking? at 23:57 on Sunday, March 8th, 2009 by Mr. Rant

    I like it when you stumble on something so potentially disastrous that you can’t let go of it and you feel the need to watch the entire thing.  This is the way that I’m struck with Derek Acorah formally of Most Haunted; which is I must admit one of the most entertaining programmes that has ever been produced, not because it pertains to be serious but because it’s glaringly obvious that most of it, if not all of it is faked.  I love silly things and most of all I love to rip the piss out of something, maybe it’s a British trait that we’re incredibly good at laughing at ourselves and that we understand irony and sarcasm.

    I’ve been watching Acroah’s programme and I’m in fits of laughter. He really does take himself and his “talents” very seriously, with his spirit guide Sam; apparently a Cherokee Indian. Yes, we know he’s a cold reader, but its fucking funny to see him run about the studio and ask the audience “fishing” questions. I think I’ll apply to be in the audience and foil his dastardly plan, by just answering yes to everything he’ll think he’s hit the jackpot.

    Acorah: Have you had a woman in you life called Jessica?

    Me: Yes.

    Acorah: Did she die?

    Me: Yes.

    Acorah: Was she a clown?

    Me: Yes.

    Acorah: I’m brilliant…

    Me: Ye.. (No, I couldn’t take it that far!)

    Santa’s fucking dead!

     Posted in An Objective Opinion & Funnies at 16:12 on Sunday, December 7th, 2008 by Mr. Rant

    It says a lot when Christmas falls into a strange category of mild disappointment.  This week has seen two Lapland adventure parks close in spectacular fashion.  Christmas is supposed to be a time of magic if not for the adults but at least for the kids.

    Things have seemingly gone awry with certain aspects of these so called Laplands.  I tend to wonder what people were thinking as they booked their tickets for the Magical Adventure of Lapland in Dorset.

    Dorset come on….

    Dorset; Our own Lapland?

    Dorset; Our own Lapland?

    There’s not a lot that’s Christmasy about Dorset, but alas the adverts confirmed that indeed a field would become a magical land which would encompass the entire spirit of the season, full of snow and jolly Eskimos singing fabled songs to draw out the time between queueing for the Ice Rink and to meet the man himself, not Jesus, but Santa; the true reason for which Christmas exists.

    At anything up to thirty pounds the cost to enter this land is expensive at best, and when you see the reports of what the site looked like, you really see that a little magical design has been put into place on the website for these events.

    I think if I was a kid these days I’d be a bit disappointed if I went to a so called Lapland and there was a haggard women screaming outside the gate;

    “Santa’s gone home… SANTA IS FUCKING DEAD”

    This would put you off a bit.

    iPhone Number Two – Part Two

     Posted in Regeneration & Thoughts on Things... & What were you thinking? at 16:32 on Thursday, November 6th, 2008 by Mr. Rant

    So it was replaced yesterday and it’s still looking good, no cracks as yet.  But there is a new problem which has been occurring on and off for a few days now, it concerns the taking and receiving of calls.

    It would seem that O2 have decided that they don’t like me and won’t let me take calls when I’m at home, well that’s not strictly true.  It seems that if you have your 3G connection on, for some reason if you live in the vicinity of my house you won’t be able to receive calls or indeed make them, fairly worrying for a phone really.

    Yes, I’ve spoken to O2 at length about the issues and they’ve advised me to make a note of when the problem occurs and how often and then in their inimitable style they’ll look into the fault and make an attempt to resolve it.

    Let’s hope it’s soon because 2G is so slow, and it’s annoying that I can’t use my iPhone to it’s full potential.
