For All the Stoke Fans Out There...

An essential style must-have, this shirt combines two of my most favourite things in the world, and is just perfect for relaxing at home or for going out and spending a night on the town.

Many thanks to Ms Pamela Smith for bringing this subject to my attention.

If you’re afraid of the hoodies, then you’d better watch out. It’ll take more than an ASBO to stop the:

Aided by their advanced technology, which allows lots of them to fit in a very small space ship and to remain teenagers even though they look suspiciously older, they’ve come to take over the world. Behold their terrifying extra-terrestrial jump suits and intimidating fifties hairdos.

They’ve come to conquer the earth, and they’re going to show no mercy, look at this ‘teenager’ ruthlessly threaten this chubby old geezer!

He better do as he says, or else he’ll shoot him with his terrifying gun that disintegrates your body and turns it into a plastic skeleton!

And if that doesn’t work, then they’ll unleash the terrifying two dimensional giant lobster.

Look out! It’s casting a shadow, or is it a shadow? It’s not really clear, but it is definitely evil!

If only there was one of them who was a bit of a pansy who could see things from mankind’s point of view and fall in love with some dipsy easily impressed girl before coming to our rescue

Can he stop the killer out-of-perspective lobster? Can he possibly stop this guy, I mean look at him, he’s acting his pants off!

Is mankind doomed? Will we be destroyed or enslaved by these evil ‘teenagers’? Almost certainly not, but just to make sure, watch:

A film so taut, so tense, so terrifying in its mind blowing drama that the director had a mental breakdown and claimed he was the second coming of Jesus Christ! It’s that powerful!

Far Out

It suddenly occurs to me that I haven't written yet about the Oberhausen Gasometer, Germany's premier Gasometer.

It's not just any Gasometer, it's one that doesn't have any gas in it. That is crucial to its success.

It's like entering into some strange sci-fi space craft, only there are lots of kids and some paintings and pictures and about the place. There's my good friend Matt shortly before being beamed up*.

There's also an elevator. An elevator that goes to up into the beyond...

Okay it just goes up to the roof, and the weird atmosphere is kind of spoilt by the fact that kids have realised that absolutely everything echoes like crazy and are jumping up and down on the metal floor just hear the noise. Here's the inside from the top.

And the view from the roof of the gasometer.

Okay, the pictures are blurred, but it's really dark in there.

In all seriousness, if due to some freak occurance you able to, go to the Oberhausen Gasometer, one of the wierdest most wonderful places I've ever been to.

*Hi Matt.
