Choices and Change


It has been too long. Maybe this will dig me out of my hole of ideas wasted and block forming around the writing in take of my brain.
Well for those of you that follow this blog, know me in real life so probably have an idea of whats been going on with me the last few months, but I am going to recap anyway.

Like Flies Around Shit

Today has been an awakening of sorts. A day in which I have probably changed as a person, probably for the better, but also probably for the worst. I have realised that society isn't based upon hard work, or passion, or talent, or even the ability to be on time. It is built on being a top draw cunt, or at least eating the arsehole of one.

Fighting Through Fragmentation

I am tired. Tired of working. Tired of trying. Tired of life.
Many of you might think that I am just another of this lazy generation, who can't be arsed earning their crust with the attention span of a fish. However, if I told you that I, at 23 years of age, am trying to cover 3 jobs, living between two houses, across 4 different towns, without a car to get to any of them, you might find that hard to believe? This is exactly what I am doing, and I am exhausted.

Conversation, Communication, Confrontation, Catastrophe


I travel on trains. For those of you who also travel on trains you will realise that a train can be quite the lonely and desolate tube, and you only seem to have yourself and self loathing thoughts for company. Now to get away from depression, I tend to watch other people on the train and their interactions. What struck me is people's communication skills are dreadful.

Holding the Fort.

Life. The choices we make, the paths we choose, the chances we take and squander. It all effects the future and present at the same time. Intertwined with that is feelings of achievement and regret.
Deep. I have been thinking about this recently. I have had some big decisions to make in the last few months, so, being a negative person, I often dwell on decisions and mistakes. I often don't give myself credit for the few decisions that went well.

Horrendous Headlines and Hideous Hacks

I have been struggling to begin this blog. Partly because it's been a while and I am a little out of practice. Sorry about that by the way. Also I am struggling to find a way to make me not sound like a know it all knobhead. Yet in the last few days, journalism is really starting to get under my skin.

Put Away your Pet!

I can not stand animals! There I said it! It is out there in the public domain, I am not a fan, never have been and most definitely never will be. So as a simple request, please keep your pets away from me!

Pricing Me Out of My Pint.

Late to the party as usual. I have been following the news that the British Government are to be imposing a minimum price on alcohol, and I am not angry, just disappointed.

Making Mistakes

Most of the time I feel like a problem. Most of the time my attempts to be clever are bereft of any class or wit. I seem to be constantly making mistakes.

Chasing Rainbows

A friend of mine posed me a question the other day, after he had watched Middlesbrough lose terribly to Dirty Leeds. Now my friend openly admits he doesn't follow football, he watches Boro on telly if they are on but never goes to matches and doesn't really follow football in general. So his question is 'whats the point of following a team that isn't going to win things? Are you not just chasing rainbows?'

All Work and No Play Makes Me A Dull Boy!

I would like to use this blog as an apology. I would like to say sorry for being an unsociable bastard just recently. I honestly seem to be stuck in a vortex of work.

Oh So Why My Eyes?

Today has been bollocks.One of those days you could comfortably put in clusterfucked. It is also the day I found out why I am justified avoiding the doctors.

Happy Birthday Idiot!

Today is the first birthday of Irrelevant Idiot! It started on the 22nd February 2011, after being bored and a little disillusioned, and constantly seeing a blog that I thought was shit and that I could do better. Also it took a little prompting from Big Dave.

Pride in a Parmo?

I have been reading a lot of opinions recently about my local area, and its cultural identity. An especially well written response to all this was provided by my good mate Chris on his blog (Its a cracking read as well). So I have caved in to the invisible peer pressure and decided to add my own ill-advised response to proceedings, so here goes.

Behind Enemy Lines

This was the realisation of a task that I had set myself for sometime, yet I had never really had chance to do. I had always fancied testing myself by sitting within the home fans at a Middlesbrough away game. Last Saturday I got my chance, sort of.

Hooligan? Howay!

Well this isn't a blog that I was expecting to write! I wasn't even considering doing a blog covering the Tees Wear derby last night. I wanted to take in the game and the atmosphere and maybe have a bit of a shout and sing. Yet, I am going to write this blog due to what happened to me on my walk back to the car.

Superbowl Sunday!

'The Greatest Show on Turf!" Kevin Cadle crowed, yes that's right you guessed it; Superbowl Sunday! What a game it was!

Battered in Blandford

So, as you know that I try my best to keep this blog reflective, and not just me chirping on about  being hammered, unless its totally necessary. (Like here, here, here and most definately here) Yet I feel like this is one of them times. I was let into a new world last weekend, a very fuzzy world, but that of a small town with friendly faces, and more than a few beers.

Talking about Teams

So I was round my mate Dave's house last night, watching football and generally talking about sports. During the course of this conversation, and after watching a tremendous string of saves by Joe Hart, we went back to conversation we were having over Facebook about a week or so earlier; picking teams.

Hate Figure

Hate is a strong word I know. However it is a phenomenon that I have experienced as a sports fan. I am unsure if it is common, or just something I do. Yet, I have levels of hatred for all sportspeople, I just need to find which pigeon hole they fit into.

The People Problem

So this has been a blog that I have been wanting to write for a while. It is a phenomenon that I have always known was there, but yet it has never quite annoyed me as much as it does today. The fact that people, as a group, are as coherent and intelligent as a cabbage.

Cheapskate Chatterboxes

Happy New Year. My first post of 2012 and all that. Unfortunately I am going to begin 2012 by complaining. Going back to a sporting theme, I want to complain about fans.
