BenQ EW277HDR Monitor

“The eye is the jewel of the body”, Henry David Thoreau

I do a great majority of my work from home, sat at a table, hunched over a laptop. As do a lot of the people reading this I would bet. We all know what steps we should take to alleviate any health issues, but we don’t always do them.

With this in mind, the lovely people at BenQ recently sent me one of their new monitors to review, and one with some rather special Eye Care features built-in.

Difference in quality

The true GAP between sales and a bargain

Despite the world falling apart around our feet, I’m sure that some of you would have taken advantage of the sales over the new year period. And why not… It’s an excellent time to strategically get hold of those things you wanted at a more reasonable price.

I too picked up a bargain, or at least I thought I did, when I was sent an email by GAP suggesting I peruse their online sale. I had fairly recently bought a pair of 1969 boot cut jeans and was overjoyed with them (as much as one can be by a pair of jeans).

Should I advise my clients to become bullies?

Firstly, let me welcome you to the roaring inferno that is the world in which we now live. Now that the pleasantries are out of the way it’s time I insulted you… That’s how it works, right? Success and popularity comes from being a bully now, I’m sure that’s what I’ve heard… So, FUCK YOU! Why don’t you piss off to wherever you came from (probably Google, or a link I posted on Twitter)!

What can one really say about the events that have been happening around us this past year? I for one am exhausted, confused and quite simply fed up with the whole bloody thing. Not so exhausted that I couldn’t spare the time to write a few words in the desperate hope that they might be read and shared to feed my ever-present ego mind you… I digress. Consider this an outpouring of thoughts. It might not make much sense, or at times even seem that coherent but this is happening so go with it.

To the stars through friendship⭐️

Buzz Aldrin in conversation with Brian Cox

On Sunday 28 February I was fortunate enough to be in a packed theatre at the Science Museum to see Buzz Aldrin in conversation with Brian Cox. It had been a day full of space related activities, not only had my son and I marveled at the permanent exhibits of rocket engines and lunar vehicles’s but we had visited the spectacular Cosmonauts exhibition in the morning. But it was now time for lift-off…

I am the one who knocks… #lovemyhat

When I began this new #lovemyhat experience two weeks ago I was not afriad to admit that I was genuinely uneasy about it. Trilby’s and Baseball Caps were one thing, but a Pork Pie was not your typical hat choice. However, just as Walter’s confidence in his new situation starts to grow in Breaking Bad, so has mine in regards to the Pork Pie.

I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot and you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!

Traditional news media is extinct. Long live social!

Dead Dinosaur

Today, once again, social media proved itself to be the evolutionary superior of news when it scooped traditional outlets to the story of the Qatar Airways plane being escorted into Manchester airport by RAF fighter jets.


The story, which broke on social media…

Although let’s be honest, we’re talking about Twitter here as nobody ever found a story that was anywhere near ‘breaking’ on their Facebook feed…

The story, which broke on Twitter first by people who were actually ON THE PLANE, scooped the lumbering Brontosaurus like BBC by actual minutes. Clearly the time has come for these media dinosaurs to realise their extinction level event is upon them, and the in-depth investigations into corruption and their insistence on fact-checking has put them at a disadvantage in our brave new journalistic world.
