Re: Attack of The Liverpool Clones.

Living in Liverpool (UK) is always interesting; due to the unpredictability of the place. 
The natives can exhibit moments of raw aggression accompanied at times with violence that would give Martin Scorsese nightmares.

If you don't believe me or disagree with my observations, have a read of the Cities Daily Newspaper: The Liverpool Echo
You'll get Headlines that will make you rush for the Anti-Depressants; yet residents always argue that the manner that Liverpool is portrayed is constantly negative?

The other side of this City can be the genuine warmth of people with an example of the amount is raised for Charity by its population. 
Along with a type of humour that's funny without being demeaning or at the expense of others. This cannot be said of my time living in Manchester or Leeds where its deemed appropriate to humiliate people under the excuse of traditional historical humour.

Yet, the reason for this Blog Entry is my puzzlement at Scouse Cultural Fashion.

Exhibit A:          

I was in a Starbucks located in the new & highly impressive Liverpool One Retail Park, enjoying the company of some former work colleagues. 
When nearly every other Adult Male that entered was wearing the above Jacket..!!
Now whilst I can recognize that trends in Fashion do exist, as without them Fashion wouldn't.

It was sort of uncomfortable watching all these Men wearing the exact same garment; in this age of the individual; why would people want to look the same?

It got me thinking that this might be something that's totally unique to Liverpool & then I realized Exhibit B.  

The young lady is Alex Gerrard or is it Curran? The Wife of Liverpool Football Captain, Steven Gerrard.

Mrs. Gerrard or is it Ms. Gerrard, what are the rules around this now? 
Do Women that are Married like to be know as Mrs. or Ms. 
Yet, being called Ms means that the Woman isn't Married... any clarity on this issue please.

Back to my point, Mrs. Gerrard is seen thee Ultimate Scouse Female as shown in the above Photo. When walking in Liverpool City Centre doing some Shopping or even on a Night-Out; it worrying the amount of Young Woman are clones of Alex.

Thus we reach the conclusion around this Blog Entry; maybe the thing that makes Liverpool unique is uniform in terms of group psychology of its resident native population that then manifests itself in actual Fashion.

As an outsider, I wish this would end but maybe this approach is what keeps the City together.
A person I know that comes from the City told me best at a time when I was new to Liverpool...

"You hate the place but then when you leave you miss it, as nothing the same anywhere".

Now after a time in Starbucks, I sort of have a handle on what they mean.

Re: Getting use to blogger & advice needed.

I've updated the layout of my blog by making it look more sharper.
Am rather pleased with myself YET what I'd like is the knowledge of putting
on my page selected Blogs that am following; as this gives the reader an insight into my personality or Social-Economic viewpoint.

Know-how, suggestions or anything dealing with the appearance of my
Blog especially from more experienced users of blogger would be most appreciated.

Many thanks.

Re: Christmas Day 2010 Message.

Whilst we celebrate Christmas Day with the majority being just out of tradition rather than Christianity. In opening presents, eating far tooo much & spending time with family & friends.

One young 22yr old faces his Christmas Day being stuck in perhaps some of the harshest conditions possible all for giving the World, truth.

The above Video explains who Private Bradley Manning is & his motivations for going against his employers the US Army. It's sad that a good person will more than likely spend the majority of his life in Prison. 

There is nothing neither you or I can do; expect think of what this Young Man currently going through being in solitary confinement facing a Military Court that will give him a 52yr sentence more than likely in solitary confinement meaning release when he reaches 75yrs old..!!

Am sure some reading this will call Private Manning; a Traitor or even stupid but when an individual is in their early 20's don't they have a 'pure view' of how life should be. The issues isn't with him but the world he was born into not being the place he was promised.

May the Force or God or whatever be with you Private Bradley Manning.

Happy Christmas.   

Re: Quality Control.

The Twelves Essential Mix by lofihighlife.blogspot

Have a listen to the above whilst reading this entry; it sort of works.

I've been away from my Blog for a while yet this isn't due to laziness just the fact that a large majority of Bloggers believe they need to update everyday.
If an individual does this then its a daily 'Captains Log' yet unlike working for 'Starfleet' they majority of these types are rather boring.

Therefore my entries will be when I feel that I got something useful to declare, provoke thought or debate... not just doing a Blog version of the 'Loose Women' (terrible UK Talkshow, YouTube at high risk)
a.k.a just talk utter rubbish cause you've got nothing of value to mention.

The thing with some Bloggers is the attraction of having Followers or even sycophants that 'worship' them.

Now if the Blogger is engaged in the Adult Pornography Business in the form of a Website; then that's fine as it's a Business / Service.
Yet, having an individual just going on about personal opinions that centre around themselves isn't healthy.
An example is how one of the most popular Bloggers on the Planet from China has no Social-Economic purpose instead expressing his life racing cars & living the high-life. Do people think that by reading how wonderful his life they can somehow 'get his secret of success'?

Therefore, I will be doing my Blogs based on the 'quality not the quantity' rule.

Why the musical link?

Well I got to know about via a Friend & it's so good in terms of quality, it gave me the inspiration as true Art does to do something creative along the lines of quality which basically means....

using intellect added with effort then some originality = 
the mentioned quality formulae.

Re: This video reminds me of....

The above Video reminds me of all the Ladies, I've been 'intimate' with in some way I love them all.

Some of them I miss; it could be a actually day or a saying or laugh.
As I get older, am starting to think of the past.

Anyways, it's a great tune.
