From Nick Bellamy’s early experiments with a toy electronics kit through to internet notoriety and career suicide, The Mourning DJ is the new pseudo-autobiography by my top media pal Neal ‘Mayhem’ Veglio.


Hi there everyone,

Just thought I’d let you guys watch a little video all about nutrition, especially for kids during the first 1000 days of their life (That’s about 2 years and 9 months, in case you didn’t just use a calculator like I just did). It’s packed with useful info about childhood obesity, swapping out sugar, what you should eat when you’re pregnant or breast feeding. It’s all very informative and well presented. You can tell I didn’t make it.


This isn’t the video, stop clicking on it. The video is at the bottom of all this well-crafted hilarious blog writing.

Obviously this interests me a fair deal, because I have one of those babies that happen currently asleep upstairs, waiting until I am at my most asleep and comfortable before kicking off asking for milk. I mean, I’m trying to get the other two kids to eat more healthy too, but if I make a fuss about that and they rebel, we’re gonna have riots in the streets, vampire/werewolf marriages, sequels to Mary Poppins, basically Armageddon in a handbag. (more…)

Hello boys and girls.

I have about an hour of sitting on my arse as we commute between jobs, so figured a bit of random internet content creation would stop me getting frustrated by the Radio Leeds phone-in show that is being piped into my ears.


On an unrelated note, I updated my phone and it now has a spell-checker. It doesn’t think arse is a word. (more…)

Hello you lot. You look like you could do with a new handbag or a hat for on your head.
Look, a newsworthy event is happening just outside your office window!

Pop Quiz, hot shot, what do you do? What DO YOU DO?


No, you don’t shoot the hostage, you get your smartphone or camera or recordable mind camera (depending on when you read this post, recordable mind cameras are the way of the future) and you film said event. Then what…?

You upload it to Newsflare, and then they make you a load of money by selling your video to news people and that. Kind of like when the newspapers go on twitter and nick videos without asking, but in such a way that you get paid! Yeahhhhhh, that’s a spicy meatball.


Hey folks, just a quickie,

ooh er missus.

Remember that there Pits and Bits towel off Body Wash I reviewed ages ago? Yeah, of course you do. Well, they’re running a funky caption competition where one lucky winner can get a ticket to the FIRST DEVIL MUD RUN RACE in February 2015. Yeah, that sounds like hard work and that.

So basically this week they want a funny (and more than likely family friendly) caption for this here photo…


So, you all remember Mitzy’s important message about her stance on internet censorship, right?

You don’t? NOW YOU DO.

Well, those lovely people over at The Pussycat Riot headquarters have gone and declared all out war against those heads of state that seek to censor the internet, banning access to YouTube and such, basically preventing the world from seeing hilarious videos of cats, among other things.

Now of course, I don’t mean actual war. Basically, constructive teasing. What have they gone and made…


Yes, now your cat can scratch away to it’s heart’s content on the body and face of Russian mentalist Vladimir Putin, as well as his pal Kim Jong-un, son of him off of Team America. (more…)

Some people say this blog is all ‘me me me’ and well, it kinda is, but sometimes I have the uncontrollable urge to pimp out other people who I think are awesome or who need their shit promoting or who paid me $5 to tell you they’re awesome on fiverr because I am a dirty whore. Well, that’s what this new feature type thing I’ve started will do. Admittedly, it might just be a one-shot, but y’know, it might work.

So without further faffery…
