by on Dec.28, 2011, under Plinky

Well 90% of the people who’ll read this know that i do infact play musical instruments, as i spent 5 years playing mandolin and guitar in a band, The Atomic Hound Dog and since then i’ve sat in on a friends band a couple of times, and am planning in the not too distant future to write a new song with a friend of mine, what most people don’t know is how many instruments i actually have…

If you could bring one fictional character to life for a day, who would you choose?

Well as i’m currently listening to the Harry Potter Audio books, one character springs to mind, Dumbledore, just to sit and chat over a butter beer or two (yes, geek i know) 🙂 it would be interesting to see an outside point of view on what we do

Also Jesus would be quite an interesting fictional characer to bring to life.

What do you wish you knew more about?

by on Dec.14, 2011, under Plinky

Engineery things, everytime i wat h mythbusters it shows me how little i know about that, i tried to solder a small circuit the other week and it’s gone wrong, 1/2 was working, now none of it is… But the 3D unit i’ve knocked together seems to work, and hopefully will build on that experience and make an even better one, just need to get a beam-splitter & a mirror and i’m sorted…

Would you rather have one free trip to space or free international travel for life?

by on Dec.07, 2011, under Plinky

Free travel for life, just think of all the places you could go visit, and photograph 🙂

I’ve always wanted to do a safari, then you have places like iceland, with all the volcanos & geyzers and the northern lights, plus deserts and everywhere else… (i thought i’d best wrap it up before i mentioned every landscape (including Hoth))

Where as the space trip would be space… Empty space… OK you’d get a great blue marble photo but… The rest of it… Nah…
