well its 2015

yes its 2015, i know im late but here we are!!

Its been a weird year obviously still being hassled by friends, family and who ever else wants to stick the oar in!

it ranges from jealousy  to just basically knowing my name! i dont really give a fuck to be honest i just get on with my life but obviously people are not happy to see me happy with lisa. Ive pretty much summed up that most people (generally female species) try stick there fukin noses in my business  i just generally pity them to be honest but its usually because they got fuk all else to do and the jealosy just pores from them, i dont blame them really must be hard seeing me and lisa get on the wreck, stop in fancy hotels, eat in posh restaurants and spend half the year in spain, oh well haha. Probably the oddest person i know who reminds me of a little sicko sad weird stalker is that irv he still still stares at me when im out has to removed from the pubs silly ugly fuka cant get a bird because he is so weird, should try not being such a hard man when he has had a pint and hitting women why the fuk any woman wants to go out with somebody she would get a black eye of is beyond me! stalking you on xmas day and scratching your car up?! fuk that proper sad bastard. any how enough of sados….

I decided for this year to drop revival and rubber soul they have served there time and its been great but just turning into to much maintenance, so this weekend im leaving both units. The good news is i have a new bass player and drummer lined up for a new project. But mainly ive got myself a new martin acoustic and a recording console and going back to basics recording my own stuff, ive got a album to complete then hopefully work on a full set of tunes for a full gig.

technology wise ive been gearing well towards ubuntu boxes using kvm, backup services, backup servers full on enterprise stuubuntu-logo2ff.

The kvm stuff is amazing if your looking at hosting stable virtual machines, also some good external android apps available to control the boxes. Im just looking in to zentyal and UrBackup which ill be doing full write ups on.

Music wise im getting rid of the many guitars and other items ive got hanging around, ill stick with the gibson firebird as ive found nothing to match it! and ive tried a gibson les paul and two gibson standard sg’s! ive dumped of all the acoustics and got myself a martin (smart move) and although ive got a great pc rig and focusrite im just getting a small hardisk multi track recorder, basically i just want to go back to basics and learn some good mic-ing techniques then il move to the pc and do the editing stuff.

In regards to listening to music im going to start venturing out again probably lancaster, kendal and probably preston manchester. do some open mic stuff and watch some bands. Im sick to death of the shite in morecambe, you find the the places just have the same bands all the time its shite not variety or worse karaoke, load of piss heads singing out of tune. All i can say is if they like that fair play i just fukin dont, i like a real band or acoustic session – i like fresh acts – morecambe just doesnt have that the bands from round here just keep banging the same places so why do you want to go and see the same bands all fucking time? naaaa it aint about just getting pissed and watching the same shite for me.

got a few holidays planned this year in spain and some other stuff going on which ill keep to myself for now, but ill be there mid year ,round october and for sure there december, dont see the point hanging round here and getting shit of people and certainly dont plan spending xmas talking about fuking dogs!

bought us a new little 50cc scooter to use as a parking cone because i live next door to a fat munter who is a trouble maker and gets her dad to threataning to do me in, stupid bitch! she was alternating her car with her fella to stop me from parking but that cant afford to run it so got one scraper now. So i have the scooter outside the house move it and put my car in it, reserved parking is good its what i deserve because im better than her. Plus i like going for a razz on it its fun haha. Supplied by lancaster motorcycles check them out!

nice seeing my new addition harper my new granddaughter this year she is a little cracker, i love lexi to bits and enjoy seeing my daughter sian as much as possible good thing is she is quite grown up and understands I have my own life so if we miss a week or two its nothing worth crying about we just keep in touch simples . My lad james has buggered of for a while fair play to the lad nowt round here!

what we have to realise is we cant be selfish and think of ourselves if somebody is happy let them get on with it and just try and concentrate on our own lives and last but not least wether we are man or beat there is no cure for age im sorry but we all get old and we all die, just accept this.

 

life in the bubble

hi been a while since a blogged.

cars, all is well been busy with work and just got my self a new motor which im happy with , audi a6 are amazing cars really happy with it.

music, my bands revival and rubber soul are still active and the rubber soul has a active jam on a sunday lunch at the smugglers den morecambe from 3pm. keep your eye out for gigs for revival and rubber soul around the town. we have just updated the songlist with a few new ditties …  i see macca has two albums re-released digitally this month which im gonna buy! see here  (bit pricey but what the hell!)  Ive just bought a load of new recording gear which im playing with currently and just invested in another 70’s gibson SG which ill be sporting and local gigs soon… ive also started dragging along my old american 90’s strat which has been a change that nice bright single coil clonky strat sound is worlds apart from my grunty dirty gibsons and it feels like a toy compared to the firebird which feels like a mans battle axe.

linux, currently running ubuntu 14.04 on my dell xps, and debian on the imac G5 i give a new lease of life to – the ubuntu install is great on top of a low latency ubuntu studio install which im still playing with.

beer, really took advantage of the camra card and tested some great cask ales lately, i have to say the best thing i did was move from the standard every day lager to the real ale cask.  Some ive tested lately and liked…

  • dizzy blonde  3.8abv blonde
  • hopfest   3.8abv blonde
  • funnel blower   4.5 dark

im going to test out the lancaster bomber this week and another light ale called mary jane ….

life, well all is well i try my best not to connect or socialise with people just a close knit thing, its a funny thing that the people who you think are okay are really just shit stirring cunts and it makes it worse when people who you are meant to be close to believe them over you… but im always a good point of blame and dont mind being the black sheep.  nothing like one sided bullshit suppose some people like all the pity and have been so badly done to. anyway apart from that little rant in myself im great just got back from barcelona and im just packing to go to torremolinos were i can visit my favourite places, mijas, marbella and benelmadena and take a visit to Gibraltar! loving my new car 🙂 and have had some great nights out lately and had some most amazing meals and just some fukin great times couldnt be happier

on the last note im thinking some people just need to realise that things happen and change for the best its harder for some people to accept change specially when its part of there life as well. but you have to make the changes as you can just carry some things on “just for the sake of it” accept the changes, get on with life, and have a happy loving life.

facebook police

mad i get a call of morecambe police station saying ive been setting web-facebook-police-badge-A3-right-sizeup dodgy facebook accounts, because i work in IT! never heard some much shite in my life. For one im far to busy for another why would I. Some people are pathetic. I cant understand the police wanting even take crap like this on. Instead of flapping about crappy facebook accounts they could be arresting real criminals for instance

  • drunken disorderly
  • domestic violence
  • stalking
  • causing damage to vehicles
  • going equipped

could be worse could shag the girlfriends daughter? some right creepy freaks about. Isnt there….

im going to make a complaint to the police not that it will make any difference itll just end up in court one day, if it does bring ya cheque book cause your going to need it.

Any questions please feel free to email me on info@wayneward.co.uk and ill answer all your questions.

 

 

stats dropped a bit

i haven’t blogged for a while been so busy, ill have to get actively blogging because my stats have dropped!

I’ve been doing showcases and playing a lot with the band and it takes up so much time!

We have done showcases in blackpool and wigan and are getting lots of interest for gigs, ive never worked in a band that’s been so much demand than rubber soul, i think its the choice of music personally.

But if anybody is looking for a band for there xmas do or pub club or event please feel free to use my contact form and ill come back to you.

Please keep watching for some new blogs coming your way…..

and to all my good friends and family i hope you are well and having a good day, wardster 😉

 

dvla is a poor organisation

got pulled other week for being on my mobile, fair enough hold my hands up so take the 3 points on the chin. but then he says my licence is revoked and has been since 2005. Now since 2005 ive been to court for speeding my licence was sent back to dvla for points and returned active to me, also in the meantime ive rang dvla to check my licence status and also for points and have never been told the licence was revoked not even when i ve been pulled for routine checks since 2005! even my insurance company who check your licence didnt get any indication and cant understand how this happend, i called dvla and they accept no responsibilities and indicate that the department that puts points on is different from the department that revokes, so if you send your licence back for points and your licence is revoke that are so stupid and disorganised to un-revoke the licence even though they get both parts of the licence! which thats why it was revoked in 2005 apparantly!!! so the police remove my car which costs 150 get out and at a rate of 20 pounds a day storage, so i take a trader who is insured to drive and vechile to drive the car from the pound and the police wont accept his insurance as they want my insurance company to add him to my insurance and you have to tell the insurance company it is to get it out of the pound! which is a massive no no! the insurnace company wants and written explanation then they want to review and the cars going up at 20 a day and you have 14 days!! so i decice to bite it as its to much hassle so then when i ask for my new tax disk back at mac adams they want me to sign my car over to them then i can says dick turpin! then i get a fat fine!!! and 9 points!! the system is dangerous and fails to serve us properly. BEWARE ring dvla and ask if your revoked cause if you are you are screwed and you dont even know it!!!!
