My Take on the Schofield/Willoughby Situation

It's been all over the news for days now, since Phillip Schofield announced his departure from "This Morning" following speculation about his failing relationship with co-host Holly Willoughby. Here's my take on the situation:

Kitten Sam

A very special, if somewhat grubby, photo, found by my brother Paul when he was sorting some books out yesterday.

My first cat Sam, taken in September 1986 on the day we adopted him. He was six or seven weeks old, and he was joined later that day by his best mate Shep. It was a new experience for everyone with Sam being our first ever moggy.

How Was I "Dealt With" Exactly?

I was going through the files on my flash drive the other day. You know how it is, you save things on there for later and then you forget it’s on there until you see it months or even years later.

The image you can see with this post comes from a Facebook post about four or five years ago. It was around the time I instigated legal proceedings against my former boss in an attempt to get back the wages and holiday pay she owed me (she never actually paid up, so that’s money I’ll never see.)

What Did Anglo-Force Look Like?

I've been playing around with one of those AI art generator things, generating images for some of the old Anglo-Force characters in a 1950's comic book style.

The Two Sheds Review is Dead

You may have noticed a slight difference to this blog in recent days, most notably the banner at the top of the page has changed. You may be wondering what's happened to "The Two Sheds Review" statement.

It's simple really. When it first launched twenty-three years ago The Two Sheds Review was really only about professional wrestling, with MMA thrown into the mix after the UFC paid their first trip to these shores a few years later.

If I Were a Soap Opera Character

Ten things that would have happened to me if I was a soap opera character and not a real person:

The First Blog of the Year

I’m going to begin 2023 with a little confession for you. It’s something I’ve only told a couple of people, but given my history I probably should have told a few more people.

You see, I’m not really a big fan of December, particularly the first two weeks, and one day in particular. I always feel sad in the run-up to December 13th, the anniversary of my mother’s passing. But this year for some reason it hit me really hard.

More Halloween Playlists

Here's some more Halloween music for you, just in case you still want your fix:

Halloween Rock first appeared as a two-parter on my old Mixcloud page last year, in response to the playlist I was forced to listen to during my shifts at Morrisons. I've combined the two mixtapes into one here and added a few more tracks, including some I found on Spotify and a few spooky WWE entrance themes. 

The Dark Side of Frogleap Studios is a new playlist featuring the somewhat darker cover versions of Norwegian Youtuber and heavy metal maniac Leo Moracchioli. There's fourteen tracks here, including a great cover of The Addams Family theme.

Finally, this one isn't one of mine. It comes from no other than the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne. Ozzy's Halloween Horrors Playlist features some of his greats from his career alongside the likes of Judas Priest, Santana, Rob Zombie and more.

Click on the highlighted/underlined text to access the playlists on Spotify. Now don't bother coming round mine for trick or treat tonight. I've got to be up early for work tomorrow!

The Scariest Thing You Will Ever Hear

All Hallow's Eve is just around the corner, so as you carve up your pumpkins and dress up as your fave monster or serial killer you're going to need some music for the occasion.

Here's a Spotify playlist that you can listen to on Halloween night. The thing is though that the music on this list is so scary, it's so frightening that once you've listened to it you'll never be the same again. This playlist will turn your hair white (if it isn't already), it'll put you off your food and give you countless sleepless nights for the rest of your life.

Dare you listen to this truly horrific music? If so then click here!
