Never say Neverland

The following photos are of items seized from Michael Jacksons Neverland ranch. This lot must be a psychologists dream - from statues of children, statues of Michael as a knight or a king. Cartoons of him as Peter Pan, a gold Scrabble set!!!, and even Edward Scissorhands hands! lol.

What a sad end to a man who was genuinely the King of Pop, and a world icon at one time. This is what happens if you never say no to a child. A genuinely disturbing look into the mans psyche! How the mighty have fallen.

Growing old disgracefully


A cinema has issued a letter to elderly film-goers, accusing them of "unacceptable" and "juvenile behaviour". Skip related content

The three-page letter detailed a litany of alleged offences by customers including; threatening, pushing and intimidating staff, saving seats for friends and jumping queues at special screenings for OAPs in Leicester.

Guests were also accused of taking advantage of the free tea and biscuits handed out.

"Guests have been known to line multiple pockets of clothing and Tupperware boxes with biscuits," said the letter.

The cinema has since apologised for any offence caused by the letter after some recipients said it made them feel like naughty children.

John Gough, 74, of Great Glen in Leicestershire, said: "We are not naughty schoolchildren and we object to a three-page letter being handed out. It really is disgusting."

In a statement, the cinema said: "Occasionally we have to remind our younger guests to behave in a way that is courteous to their fellow guests.

"Very, very occasionally we have to remind our more mature guests as well. This was one such instant, and was solely prompted by several complaints that we had received directly."

Do cats get Aids?

Seen in London. Not sure if I believe them! lol

Mud volcano on Mars

Is this a mud volcano on Mars? If so, could it be dredging up martian microbes? This strange possibility has been suggested recently and seems to fit several recent observations of Mars. First of all, hills like this seem to better resemble mud volcanoes on Earth than lava volcanoes and impact craters on Mars. Next, the pictured dome has an unusually textured surface consistent with fractured ice. Infrared images from space indicate that hills like this cool more quickly than surrounding rock, consistent with a dried mud composition. The hills also reflect colors consistent with a composition that formed in the presence of water. Finally, unusual plumes of gas containing methane have been found on Mars with unknown origin. These gas plumes could conceivably have been liberated by mud volcanoes, were the initially warm mud to contain methane-producing microbes drifting in a previously unobservable underground lake. A candidate mud volcano over 100 meters across is pictured above in the northern plains of Mars.

Star spotting

Small things amusing, and all that lol............ the lovely Billie Piper was filming outside our offices in Elstree today. :)

I just happened to "pop" outside of a ciggie at the same time, and managed to say hello to her on the way past. My two Dr Who geek friends have had kittens when I told them that. Small minds, eh? lol

Straight Flush

From my home game with my friends. A rare and lovely thing indeed! :)

Elstree Studios

Pre-production is in full swing on Re-uniting The Rubins. We have a suite of offices in Elstree Studios in Borehamwood.

It is such a cool place, with a fantastic history in iconic films. Pictures litter the walls from features such as Superman, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan have all been filmed there, along with a little flick called Star Wars, oh and some bloke called Spielberg did some archiology film here too ;) Oh and some programs called Big Brother and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire but we wont talk about that! lol

I've got an office with my name on the door (granted its a photocopy, but we wont go into that!), and all is groovy. I'm working with some brilliant people, and have my work cut out indeed...but its such a buzz to be working flat out. :)

The script is brillaint, and with a stellar cast (more later), this is bound to be a cracking experience.

So I'm down in London for the next 10 weeks, before the shoot goes to South Africa for a week!! lol. All is busy, but good!
