No it’s not mine, but this site has now been online, in its current form, for two years!

2015 2016 2017


Very few format changes from last time just a bit more content.

Also on that very first day I announced the arrival of Kyle Bennett and Kal Naismith to Portsmouth and a year later (2016) I had indicated that Kal Naismith had been a disappointment. A year makes a lot of difference and now Naismith is currently one of our best players

Just got myself a Stereoping 8000 controller for my Korg DW8000. This will replace the rather clunky Philip Rees C16 which worked well but had a rather “homemade” feel about it and the functions not labelled.

This is part of a series of units they make for various synths, if it is successful then I may buy the ones they have for the Yamaha TX-81z and the Kawai K4

I absolutely love this picture from Entertainment magazine to mark the 20th Anniversary or Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Just had to include it here

From left to right Amber Benson , Alyson Hannigan , Nicholas Brendon , Emma Caulfield , Alexis Denisof , Charisma Carpenter , Seth Green , David Boreanaz , Sarah Michelle Gellar , James Marsters , Michelle Trachtenberg , Kristine Sutherland

And in front, the legend himself, Joss Whedon

If only it had included Anthony Head (Giles), Eliza Dushku (Faith), Julie Benz (Darla) and Juliet Landau (Drusilla)

20 years ago to day the greatest TV show of all time first aired.

I wasn’t into it from episode one as I thought the film was a bit so so, just remember catching the end of a few episodes as I think it was on before Star Trek. My opinion soon changed.

Well the plan for a lads day in Crawley didn’t come off due to a frozen pitch. Quite why it was called off at 9am when it’s only an hours travel time is confusing but that’s life.

So we had breakfast and then went to watch the early game, everything is a bit hazy after that. I remember lots of drinks, pool, darts and a few rounds of spoof. I also remember arriving in Emsworth and then Barnham which makes no sense. Also i got  kebab somewhere.

I guess that makes it a good day out, Sunday is not such fun though

Amanda Leigh “Mandy” Moore (born April 10, 1984) is an American singer-songwriter and actress. After coming to fame in 1999 with her debut single “Candy”, which peaked at number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100, Moore signed with Epic Records. Her debut studio album, So Real (1999), went on to receive a platinum certification from the RIAA. The title track from her second studio album, I Wanna Be With You (2000), became Moore’s first top 30 song in the U.S., peaking at number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100. As of 2009, Billboard reported that Moore has sold more than ten million albums worldwide. In 2012, Moore was ranked #96 on VH1’s list of “100 Greatest Women in Music” as well as #63 on their “Sexiest Artists of All Time List”.

Moore’s acting career began in 2001, when she made her feature film debut with a minor voice role in the comedy Dr. Dolittle 2, before co-starring as Lana Thomas in the comedy The Princess Diaries. Her first starring role was as Jamie Sullivan in the romantic drama A Walk to Remember (2002). Moore later co-starred with Zachary Levi, where she voiced Rapunzel in the Disney animated fantasy musical comedy Tangled (2010); her and Levi’s performance of “I See the Light” won them the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. Moore and Levi went on to both reprise their roles in the short film Tangled Ever After (2012) and the Disney Channel television series Tangled: The Series (2017–present). Moore has starred as Rebecca Pearson in the NBC family comedy-drama This Is Us since 2016, and was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Series, Miniseries or Television Film at the 74th Golden Globe Awards for her role.

Second Xmas event for the staff of EAB and the traditional after work trip to The Golden Hind.

This one was contained no prizes with the bill which was good news. A few hardy souls stayed on for some after drinking, not such a good idea with work the next day.

I got left looking after the pensioner but he can drink most of us under the table so not a problem at all.
