I made this video recently going through some of the clean sounds that the Boss MG-10 amplifier can make. I’m playing through my original one that I got in ’89 and I’m also using a Steinberger Spirit guitar which I got in about 2001. I’m not using any effects between the guitar and the amp […]
Since my site is quite popular with amplifier fans, I wanted to show you this video of the Squire SP-10 amplifier, which is a little 10 watt amplifier made by Squire (who are of course related to Fender). I thought I’d post about the amplifier because I’m going to mod this one beyond recognition, […]
My mate gave me a task on Facebook: choose 10 vinyl albums that greatly influenced my taste in music. One album per day for ten consecutive days. No explanations, no reviews, just album covers. So far I have done three in the last three weeks and…so…well I am not really sticking to the rules in […]
Here are two animated GIFs which are free for you to use. I made the Happy Birthday one last week, after I printed up a bunch of birthday cards ready for the year. Because each one came out slightly different, they make for an interesting animation when scanned and joined together. I can tell you […]
I wrote an article back in 2003 about listening to the radio which was posted on a long-gone radio-related email list. Since I found it recently, I’ve published it on here, but back in its proper place date-wise. I’m daft like that.
In season 3, episode 9 of Photo Chat Vlog I spoke about using a Yashica Samurai half-frame camera with expired film, and in this episode I wanted to follow up with some other half-frame experiments with my Fuji TW3. Now this is an interesting camera because first of all it’s a Fuji camera. Now normally […]
I think it was in season 3, episode 7 of Photo Chat Vlog when I got to the end of the video that I said that there wasn’t a loaded film camera in my life at that time, and that was July this year, 2019. But I can tell you I was quite busy shooting […]

Made for my magazine, “Veeb” sometime in 1994.
Milton Keynes, 21st October 2018, Ricoh R1 using expired Kodak BW400CN film. Why post a picture like this? Big light leak on the right, processing mess, blur, lack of detail. But…I do think there is something that all that noise is giving back to the image. It was a very bright autumn day, where it […]
My friend sent me this video of Imogen Heap demonstrating her musical gloves This is a good video and definitely worth watching all the way through. However, I remember Marillion doing something similar many years earlier, and so I looked that up on YouTube and sent that clip back to him for discussion. My mate […]

From what I can tell, I get a fair few hits on this site from people wanting to know more about the Boss MG-10 amplifier, and since I have had one since they came out in 1989 (and now have three) I thought I’d post about what I know about the amp, starting with some […]

Thinking about this time last year My neighbours bought an expensive new patio table But I don’t see them sitting in the garden much these days I still find myself thinking of you (and You, and yOu and, yes, yoU too) But mostly the thoughts are different now I thought I would be already doing […]
