Getting Back Into Blogging

It's been over a month since I lavished this corner of the internet with attention, irrelevant GIFs, gratuitous crap gig photos and over-filtered selfies. It's true what they say - working in retail sucks every iota of joy out of life. By that, I mean I haven't even had chance to catch up on Corrie. However, last week I was at home from work with cracked ribs, so my chance to re-evaluate my blogging existence came at a price... to be exact, the cost of 3 prescription painkillers including codeine that slaps the energy right out of my already lifeless body. In the midst of ice bucket challenge binges and the organised worship of the new daytime telly god Judge Rinder, I've found my spark to get my arse back here and do something completely pointless for your entertainment. By way of apology for the absence, I've come back to explain the range of emotions bloggers go through... coming back. The paranoia, the anxiety, the blood, the sweat, the tears. You thought blogging was easy?

Sunday at Download 2014

Yes, it's been over a month since Download... yes, I'm now writing my Sunday review. Working as good as full time in retail decimates my spare time, plus I'm delaying the inevitable post-festival blues by writing this at a glacial pace. Forgive me, I'm a sentimental soul, and my heart belongs at Donington... not least for the overpriced burgers.

Getting My First Tattoo.

I did it. I finally did it. After 11 years of wanting it and avoiding taking the plunge as soon as I was legally old enough to have one, I got my first tattoo.

Saturday at Download 2014

Finally, I've got around to my Download Saturday round-up!
Following a bit of a disappointing Friday at Download, I knew Saturday would make it all worthwhile. From Fozzy to Linkin Park, the second day's lineup was looking great, but not quite as great as that dude's idea to wave a false arm in the crowd.

Punky Pins - The Darker, Weirder Side of Jewellery

When the high street stores decide skulls are no longer 'in', and when the average silver spikes of the alternative shops just won't do, who you gonna call? Punky Pins... or Ghostbusters... but Punky Pins are a lot more experienced in this kind of emergency.
