Discrimination, what discrimination?

Published on January 25th, 2013. Last updated on January 21, 2019.

It has came to my attention that quite a few people seem to have not actually read the article and only read a few words and decided to go off on me with the whole – people like you should be locked up. If you read the article carefully you will see this article has NOTHING to do with being gay is wrong – people are free to be whatever they please. This article is writing about the hidden discrimination that ex-gays by some of the gay community. No where written in this article does it even comment on being gay so please at least read before you judge. And for those that is saying this does not happen then you are not looking close enough. It happens in every community and it is this one I am writing about solely because it is hidden from public eye.

As of today, I am pleased to say I am The Much Honoured Irvine Carbrey Pal Grant Mac Fhionnlaigh of Kincavel and you all …. wait someone else is already a laird of Kincavel and I can’t use it? Can I keep the Irvi… no okay.

So I have heard a lot more about people selling land which allows you to become a laird – I even looked back at it in 2007 and wondered if it was actually legal to actually buy a title. If you are wondering what I am on about check this link – Buy a Laird Title from a company you think would actually research it.

What if I told you today that you that you have a rare form of cancer but sadly there is nothing I can do in helping you treat it other than end of life care and hope for the best. What if I tend told you that when you went home, you learn on Facebook a friend of yours also has this cancer but have a new treatment that will treat it.

If I was you I would be thinking “What the hell!?, is that private?” but that is exactly what is happening today in the United Kingdom and that is a game we like to call – “The Postcode Lottery”.

As you may know I currently been doing a radio station called Tweaked for your Listening Pleasure and I asked a friend of mine called Dave over at Amazing World Music (yep, same person that provides the music in my videos) about the legal side of it and lets just say there was barely anything out there when it comes to online radio in the United Kingdom.

With that in mind, Dave went out researching and has compiled a report on what he found out. All credit goes to him and hopefully it helps someone else. Just remember none of us are lawyers and well, we can be wrong. Any comments, different view points or if anyone actually is a lawyer in this field – please do comment as we would love know the law exactly.

Final Fantasy XIII-2: My Review

Published on January 12th, 2012. Last updated on December 24, 2019.

Final Fantasy XIII-2

The review has been updated based on the United Kingdom’s release of Final Fantasy XIII-2. I am sure anyone that has a brain and who reads Tweaked for your Pleasure would have worked out I would end up doing a Final Fantasy XIII-2 review and with the power of importing, here is the review. The game is based after the events of what happened in Final Fantasy XIII so if you have not completed that, complete it first as it will make sense.

Game play wise, it does play much like Final Fantasy XIII but and I will repeat this once, does not feel the same and unlike Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years etc this game actually feels like it is a game on its own and can stand against the game before it. Continue reading

Potty Council

Published on July 7th, 2011. Last updated on July 7, 2011.

As much as everyone else in the United Kingdom, I completely love the HM Government* and this I also love our local councils but sometimes I really do wonder if they make choices based on a few illogical choices made while high while dancing around in a room naked while summoning some dark lord dolphin to random decide what they should do … or something like that.

Basically where I live the main road that is actually used here was damaged with tons of pot holes that I feel sorry for anyone that tries to ride a motorcycle on that road.

After the local council decided to spend a few million of pounds to change what is basically two roads (it was a market place) so that there is less free parking place for some really odd reason when there is a lack of free parking in the town to start with. Anyway after this was approved in the local town, they decided to go ahead with the pot hole repairs.
