I've had a compliment.

I factor into the mindset of a Bashar follower so much that they now are pulling up a picture at a Bashar event and asking if its me.  I wonder, is this an obsession thing or is it worry about what question I'll ask should I get the opportunity to do so at an event?

I am going to see a Bashar event and as I'm sure he would say "How exciting"

And footage from the last home game of the season.  Rather sad that there's no more home games, but then in the break until the next season I'm going to be away with work, back home and travelling around, so its worked out nicely in that respect.

Bashar transmission channelled by Tim.

"Good day to you on this day in your time.  We have an important transmission on the results of the Grand National that we wish to convey to you at this time.   There will be a horse race called the Grand National which will be held in the UK, that we predict with 100% certainty and at some time and in some shape or form, a horse will win.  We say this with a 98% certainty."

Transmission ends.

For the followers of mine who have no clue what this is about....it's a long story.  And to Bashar Communication legal team - I think this is obviously a parody of Bashar and Daryl Anka.  No need to get your pens out.

GIGO..... Thats the answer here.... The Internet is screwed up for you for one reason... GIGO.  Garbage in garbage out.   Theres a term thats applicable in computing.... Even in the world of Goodwill computing.  5 likes for an article? I bet you could get more for simply saying "Go Portland Timbers" with a #mls  hashtag.

Google Street Maps - The unexplained files.

The club which has been a part of my working life of this year.... Seaham Red Star FC.  Work has taken me on a merry journey covering thousands of miles over the last season.  I had the opportunity to join the Seaham Red Star FC, which I keenly took (and somehow managed to fit around travel, work, travel, work)  Being part of the behind the scenes management of a football team which is rapidly climbing in the UK Football pyramid is one of the most eye opening, fantastic experiences I've ever had.  This is a promo video which marks the Red Star getting the well earned rewards.  Well done to the entire team!  Bring on the next season!

Freaky Shack kindly indulged me in making a short documentary (Yes, I'll be back soon) and to this end a concept trailer was created.  The release of the documentary is August 2015 and the official trailer available shortly.... In the meantime, if you you've not seen it, here it is:

I think Dawkins revels in the attention.  Would anyone even know his name if it wasn't for his "technique"?    Maybe by surrounding himself with his worshippers he feels better in his views, because without the attention he'd had to face up to his views alone.   Is he really a non-believer at all, or a believer who doesn't want to believe and seeks approval from others in order to justify in his own mind
 his non-belief?
