Just wondering, recently, fuel has become cheaper - I'm looking at 91.9p.

This is a good thing, yes? Then why is it that every person is not at the pumps panic filling their vehicles to the brim?

Why is it then, when the fuel prices sky-rocket - and everyone is told 'There is no issue with supply, it's just the cost going up', that people insist on panic buying? like 'Oh my God, Fuel is 20p more expensive I've got to buy as much as possible'.

On reflection, I think that this logic should apply to other items that the government don't want people to buy. So lets reduce the price of cigarettes to 20p a pack, and a pint to 50p. People would obviously stop buying it so much and will solve all issues with Cancer and Liver disease. Genius!

Gigs, Gigs and more Gigs

I've been to a lot of gigs lately, so I thought I would tell you about some of them...

Queen and Paul Rodgers; Got the tickets for a bargain price of zero pounds. Cheap at half the price. Gig was pretty good, with an especially interesting way of getting the drum kit on the end of a 50 foot ego ramp while it was being played - all good.

This one was at the Academy in Birmingham - this was a very strange gig. Okay, the desk breaks down three times during the gig and what would you expect from a professional band that have been going for 15 years? You've guessed it, the didn't have a clue. The funniest thing was the fact that the PA and on stage amps were actually working, basically their in-ear monitoring was knackered. They basically stood on stage and then left... without their songs they had nothing. The drummer eventually had a bit of a go at entertaining the crowd but with the rest of the band hanging around as though they were waiting for a bus it was laughable. The fact that they were so useless was actually entertaining in itself.

Alterbridge; This gig was down at Brixton Academy, and was my first time there. It was an amazing gig and an amazing venue.
