Misfueling hurts so bad

Unfortunately, this first post will not be about a trip I had, as I could not complete it at the end of the day. For various reasons. One of those reasons was that I was not planning to write about it, as my camera’s memory stick didn’t arrive yet.

The second reason is slightly weirder.

Media Discovery Black Hat SEO scam

So, I received an email the other day from a company called Media Discovery, offering me monies in order to sell them advertising space for this very blog.

To make a long story short, it wasn’t a completely spam email, just spam-ish. The first email I received in January the 21th was the following one:

Zero Carbohydrates and Salt Detox Diet Overview

So, earlier this week, Sunday to be precise, I was in a moderately strict detox from carbohydrates and salt, in order to detox.

Today it is Saturday, so my detox is over. This doesn’t mean that I will start all the habits again, but means that now I can ease up a bit and enrich my diet.

I would highly suggest this way of detoxing to everyone that wants to reset his diet as well as kick-start his idle metabolism.

It is not going to be easy at all, especially the first two days, but it pays off big time in the end.

London Estate Agents Ranting

Once again, I was about to hit the road.

In a different way though, as my house contract was coming to an end and I needed to move into a bigger house, not only because I got fatter, but also because we are going to be more crowded this time.

We are forming “Yet Another Greek Ghetto” in London. Nothing special here. To be honest, I don’t miss my old house at all yet, as I felt like a giant and I was tired of hitting my toes in the passage between my desk and my bed.

So, my tale of clashing with the mafia of house agents, had begun.

Looking back in 2013

To be honest, I always think of year intervals starting from September, so days like this I tend to sit down and do a last minute thinking.

2013 was a year of big changes and a lot of work for me.

It was a really creative year for me, even though I was really pushed to the boundaries of sanity from things happening around me, as I sank deeper into my solitude.

Until Rain – Z7, Switzerland drumcam

While I was on tour with Until Rain supporting Andromeda, I managed to get some drumcam footage for some of our songs, thanks to Mr Linus¬†Abrahamson. I still can’t thank him enough for lending his zoom camera recorder for a couple of gigs.

In this post, you can view my performance from Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland.

One Full Year in the United Kingdom

So, exactly one year ago, I arrived in London Stansted Airport. But this time it was a single ticket.

I went to Baker Street via easyBus. I didn’t have an oyster card, I was in a rush and I was afraid of not catching a train before the underground closes. I didn’t have a clue when the last train was. So I overpaid a single ticket to Earl’s Court.

Earl’s Court is a place I don’t particularly like but I had to visit for various reasons all of the times I was in London. It still works as an index of my progress as a man. It is all the nice and bad moments summarized together. It still hurts sometimes…

So, back September the 12th, 2012. I didn’t have a smartphone, GPS or internet. I only had a printed street map of the area around the station and my hotel reservation along with clothes, a laptop and one thousand quid that fed me for 3 months.

I clearly remember that I was thinking the following: (I still do today)

“That’s it. This is your opportunity. No more lies. Prove yourself now.”

I didn’t really know what I was going to do. But I knew that I had to do something.

An evening with Gavin Harrison

So, yesterday it was quite a day.The weather was crap unlike the previous days, but who cares?

Gavin Harrison was in London for a clinic in Wembley Drum Centre. I arrived there with my flatmate at around seven o’clock, just a bit before the doors opened. The tickets were courtesy of this fellow gentleman and colleague.
