The bucket list – Is there any point?

Is there any point in a bucket list these days? Of course there is! We’re not all immortal gods and have unlimited wealth, so some of us mere mortals have to plan for the future and do things to make us feel good before we die.

I have compiled my bucket list below in no particular order. Note – this is a never-ending and constantly updated list. For now there shall only be a few things, but over time the list shall grow and accomplishments shall be ticked off. I hope to do all of them before I die.

Call of Duty Championship 2015

If you’re a gaming fan like myself and so many others then you should of known about the Call of Duty Championships 2015!

I managed to catch the majority of the tournament over the past two days, and was deeply impressed by just how well covered each match is with the commentary.

There was match to match breakdowns of what happened just in case you missed it among all the epic battles, which made for a much better watching experience.

I have included the finals below for you to watch, but if you’re interested in the final battle you should skip to 5 hours 40 minutes. It’s intense as hell as Denial takes the win for 2015!

I’ve spoken enough. I only wanted to bring you this video filled with so much skill.

Top Gear – My thoughts

You should all know what’s been happening with Top Gear by now, and if you don’t then you’ve been living under a rock! It’s been all over the news, in the papers, and all over social media!

As the main incident has now been dealt with by the BBC (the “firing” of Jeremy Clarkson) I thought I would give my two pennies on the whole situation.

I would have to agree with the decision of the BBC to “sack” Jeremy over what he did. It wasn’t professional and nor was it the right thing to do, and it was over something so stupid, however in saying this it is a sad thing that he will no longer be part of Top Gear.

Fortunately there are rumours floating around stating that all three of the boys (Clarkson, May and Hammond) will have another show not on the BBC but on Sky 1 under the name Top Speed. How true this rumour is for sure I can’t say, but if the rumour does come to fruition I will be most happy that the show is not going to die with the BBC, as I’m sure many of its fans will also be.

What are your thoughts on the subject? Do you think it should of been handled differently? Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

A fresh new start

It’s never too late for a new start, and I felt my website needed one. Not much will change, in terms of how it looks, but there is significant change behind the scene.

I know I have said this before and I will probably say it again and again, but I will try to at least keep this up to date with a minimum of one post per week on a random topic. Just to try to keep things fresh and to accommodate all types of audience.

While I add content back to my website you should feel free to comment on this post with some topic ideas that you would like me to cover for you. It doesn’t particularly matter what topic you pick, as I will try my best to cover that subject. The topics I would find easiest to cover are listed below in no particular order.

  • Photography
  • Mobile phones
  • Travelling
  • Gaming – PC or Console
  • Technology
  • Breaking news – my opinions
  • Financial advice
  • Movies
  • Cinema
  • DVD
  • Software
  • Cooking
  • Family
  • Everyday life

There may very well be other random subjects that I’ll talk about, but these are all the ones I can think of right this second.

For now though you can enjoy a lovely photo of when I went to the Eden Project.
