O.K a general warning brass cog wheels from watches and clocks can be razor sharp

although I now have a stem powered drill
it is actually steam powered

its basically one of those hobby drills like a Dremal

i got one of the flexibal drive shafts for a hobby drill mounded it on to an old drill head hooked up a pully and fixed it to a drive belt

i have not as yet worked out a way of controling the speed propelly yet but when it goes it really GOES

I was watching mile high (I watched the first series when it was first aired, never knew there was a second series iv only been watching it again as there is fuck all on TV after midnight and they have just shown the first series and are now showing the 2nd series)
Well the reason I so fucked off is in this episode they end up in jersey (apparently) they started by showing standard stock film of the island (the sort of shit you see in adverts for the island) they then do a scene in the baggage collection section of jersey air port (I’m not sure if it actually was but it bloody looked like it) they also show one of there airlines plains on the taxi way (white plane with a blue tail with red script font writing saying FRESH.
What truly pisses me off is I am one of the few active Make-up Artists in Jersey & registered with Channel Television and The Jersey Film Commission.
If they actually did film it over here I could of earnt @ least a days wages doing what I fucking trained to do!
Did any one over here remember seeing 1 of there plains up at the air port? If so please let me know.

Ok rant over

SYD Roger Keith Barrett 1946 - 2006 [Aug. 4th, 2006|02:57 am]
[mood |depresseddepressed]
[music |Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond]

Shine on You crazy Diamond

"So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here."

Ok as many of you will be aware Syd Barrett left for The Great Gig In The Sky last month (07/07/2006)

So why has it taken me a month to post about this?
Well I am one of these people who stands tall and helps others through things first and then sorts then sort my self out at a later date,
It was only on reading a friends MySpace blog that it actually hit me "You haven’t dealt with this yet"
I’m FUCKING DEVASTATED not helped by the shuffler on my computers MP3 player as i selected to play all of Pink Floyd and it managed to play all the most depressing tracks it could for the way i was feeling.

The world has truly lost one of music’s great performers / composers.

I am truly lost for words and all i can say/ask is you join me in one thing:

Please charge your glass (Alcoholic or not) and raise it with me as we toast

"Wish You Where Here Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett Shine On You Crazy Diamond"

What Type of Killer Are You? [cool pictures]

You are a Samurai.
You are full of honour and value respect. You are not really the stereotypical hero, but you do fight for good. Just in your own way. For you, it is most certainly okay to kill an evil person, if it is for justice and peace. You also don't belive in mourning all the time and think that once you've hit a bad stage in life you just have to get up again. It's pointless to concentrate on emotional pain and better to just get on with everything. You also are a down to earth type of person and think before you act. Impulsive people may annoy you somewhat.

Main weapon: Sword
Quote:"Always do the right thing. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest" -Mark Twain
Facial expression: Small smile

My Death (Apparently) [Aug. 1st, 2006|01:22 am]
[Current Location |home]
[mood |amusedamused]
[music |Godsmack ~ Vampires]

You scored as Disappear. Your death will be by disappearing, probably a camping trip gone wrong or an evening hike you never returned from. Always remeber that one guy who was hiking alone and got in a rock slide. He could have died, but he cut his own hand off to save himself. Don't end up like him (or worse, dead).
