Tresemme it burns it burns!

Generally I like Tresemme as I have been using one of their products which is with moisturiser. But this version Renewal Hair and Scalp, Now I know what Jack felt like when he fell into that big vat of acid to become The Joker in Tim Burtons Batman! It burnt my face! I went all red.

I don’t know if people have had similar problems with this product or even other similar shampoo products.

What’s out there? Or is it under me? 

For the last hour I thought something was outside making too much noise, but now I am wondering is it under my floor boards?

I feel fearful a bit rat is going to pop up through my floor! Eeeeek! Struggle to sleep and it’s only 5:30 am now!! Will it go away? Please, please go away, the scratchy, beating, twisting sound. 

I need a baseball bat..

A Rustlers burger once and never again!

I was hungry this evening, so I went home via McDonalds, which annoyingly was closed at 11pm.

So I went across the road to Tesco, I still felt like I wanted a burger, I had never tried a Rustlers burger before, shoved it in the microwave and zapped it!

I didn’t use the sauce or the cheese, instead I just put some ketchup, mustard and pickle in which I had.

This has to be the worse burger I have ever had in my life. Do people really eat this shit? It tasted like recycled plastic. Chewy and gross.

I just hope I don’t have food poisoning tomorrow.

Gurban Gurbanov a man to watch

Wiki Commons: Nicat49

In this years Europa league I watched Tottenham at home to Qarabagh of Azerbaijan and I was very impressed with how Qarabagh approached the game.

They were tactically very good, very well disciplined and I saw some very nice football from the team. This was against a hungry Tottenham who didn’t make it easy for Qarabagh to play the game they wanted.

And again in the reply, although I watched the short highlights I was still impressed with how they play.

A team playing at their best and who were top of their league last season and are still strong. A lot of this is down to the manager of Gurban Gurbanov, I haven’t seen many teams perform like Gurbanov has instructed his team too. I am of the belief this man can go places. If the bigger clubs in Europe actually watch and take notes of the Azerbaijani league and notice how well Gurbanov’s effort and effect I am sure we should be seeing him in the future at some of the bigger clubs.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

Please note this will contain spoilers.

For me I was worried I might fall asleep since I went to see the 12:40 am screening. However with the 3D glasses on and the scroll down of the famous flowing narrative. Which kinda of made me laugh because already I felt this copied straight up from the previous scripts.

I felt like I was back on Tattooine of Luke’s home planet, but this is a different planet, which looks exactly the same! Apart from the fact there appears to have been a war here. Hence the fact that there is an Imperial graveyard littered after every dune.

You are met with a runaway, a girl and a droid. A few other characters and suddenly a hunt for a map. Well, this feels different and it did for a good while. But as back stories go, you will know the old characters, but the new ones? Is this mystery or a failure to give little back story?

As soon as we find Han Solo’s favourite ship which he had been hunting for himself, there seemed to be a return to the old ways.

There seems to be a collective point in the script which reverts back to what Lucas started with and how the film ended. Starting with a chase through space to a big super weapon, an even bigger death-star! O, how original.

I can’t say too much more about the script or story as that would be just unfair.

I appreciate you have a time limit for such films as you can only fit so much into a story, so they have done well with what was given. The ability to provide an authentic looking film to the series and they have done an excellent job here. The used look is back, the battered, beaten, damaged. This is the look about Star Wars which I loved the original for, a used up, battered universe.

I couldn’t really feel much for the characters and this maybe due to some flat acting at times. I did like the new droid, the young actors fitted in well. I didn’t really feel the anger from the Darkside! When he took his mask off, I just saw a pathetic looking man with shaggy hair. Poor choice of actor in my opinion.

Although JJ has done an excellent job with the script he was given, I did love what was on offer. However It feels lacking and I just hope the next instalment will be a better look, with more style and some class. And for heaven-sake, I hope some originality!

4 outa 5 stars from me.

The part loss of our electronics industry

During the 80’s and early 90’s there was a lot of inventive people playing around with a new found love in electronics. They would take peices apart to study how they worked. Then with an old broken radio they would see what went wrong and attempt to repair it. Or fail because one vital part accidentally broke.

At this period in our history stores sprang up with the answer to many people’s questions. The likes of Tandy and RadioShack would supply you with the resistors, microchips that you needed. 

These stores have since disappeared from the high street. RadioShack moved to the Internet, Tandy eventually disappeared, I think it got swallowed up by Dixons-Currys group. Now just known as Currys.

So the small trade in computer components went online. There was a small part of this large industry where a small circuit board would be recycled into its parts. 

People would unsolder its parts and sell them online to other enthusiasts to use in a project. Or simply sell the whole board. 

But now after just a few browses of eBay, it’s clear to me this part of recycling is on its way out.

Parts are cheap to buy new in bulk. There are better, smarter chips brought online and now people are just interested in extracting the gold and other materiel to make a profit.

And the invention on the computer game might be one point to ask. Did you prefer taking that radio apart or prefer playing Super Mario!?

A once interesting industry diluted and an education of how things work gone. More modern technology prevails. We are still forever inventive in our ways. But the simple peices of electronic equipment seems no more.
