Power Struggle

With THE anti-hero Deadpool debuting on February 12th in the UK, what better time to post exactly why driving a car with great power comes great irresponsibility? Burnout ripping. Rear wheel cocking. Oppo-lovin’. Oversteering irresponsibility. Screw tyres and screw the need to ‘just get from A to B’. I joke, now read. How often have…

Automotive Investment

Discussions with other car enthusiasts rarely remain grounded for long, with regularly repetition of  ‘what if’ and ‘if I had that sort of money’ tailoring the topics beyond Neverland or a galaxy far far away. Nevertheless when it comes to the cost of cars anybody who drives has an opinion one way or another, from…

Need For Speed (2015) PS4

Need For Speed. Three words synonymous with car-loving gamers everywhere, both for the the more casual dip-in-and-outer and, with promised extensive car ‘tweaking’, the more serious customers, too. No longer Most Wanted, made of Carbon, or Pro at Streeting this is effectively a reboot as far as the brand goes, given the name could only…

Audi A7 3.0TDI 272PS Black Edition quattro Road Review

Yesterday I took to my keyboard in order to provide you with an insight into the road handling capabilities of the Audi S4 Avant 3.0 TFSI V6 – a sports wagon meeting the requirements for many different purposes. Now I present to you a breadcrumb trail of thoughts leading you to decide whether or not…

Audi S4 Avant Black Edition 2015 Road Review

The Audi S4 Avant is definitely no elongated hot hatchback, even if the top of the pocket rocket market is now kicking out cars capable of equalling and exceeding it for straight line speed. It is more laidback than those beasts, with the sharp-to-respond yet somewhat thirsty 3.0L supercharged V6 and 7-speed s-tronic shunting the…

Computers and Myself

Since I was old enough to type and accurately use a mouse I have been obsessed with computers in one way or another. I didn’t go down the software coding route, however the bug for building and modifying PCs saw that I pursued hardware as my passion instead. My first build featured a Thermaltake Kandalf…

Catchup

Okay, so I’m pretty late to the party with this one, but one does not simply just catch up on the 131 games in one’s Steam library, let alone PS3 and PS4 stash and non-Steam games… That, along with reading dozens of unread books, watching countless episodes of TV, discovering films still reaching back to…

My Movember Serendipitous Pre-New Year’s Resolution

Hi again, Yes, that is the title of this post. It is the most succinct way in which I could describe the events of today, at least for myself. I’ve started to get things done. Okay, by things I mean getting rid of old clothes ready to give to charity, but it’s a start! Other…

Happy Anniversary, Blog.

Hello there internet, rest assured, I am still here. This is just a short post to say this blog has honestly just restored some of my faith in the pleasantly satisfying ideology that is serendipity. What encompassed me to check on how my, rather admittedly under-kept, blog was going.. Turns out today is the anniversary…
