Oh Nando

After yesterdays 4-1 thrashing of Pompey at Anfield (a game in which Torres created the first two goals and scored the last two himself) I thought it was time for a compilation of the new number 9 in action for the mighty Reds. I apologise in advance for the music.

Sweet merciful robot jeezuz. The PES 5 version of Ronaldinho's Brazilian Ping Pong (which is by no means pornographic- but i b

There is no point in trying to cover up my soccer-video-game-nerdism. It is so rampant that the only choice I have is to revel in it. With that in mind, watch this. Holy flurking shnit. This, my friends, is the end-product of what I can only assume is an entire life wasted playing video games. I wonder what the guy who pulled this off looks like. Poor soul. How long has it been since he's seen the sun? And yet I'm strangely impressed...

My birthday ain't totally happy...

My birthday- December 8- is a an interesting day (not least because it was the day I was born). Not only do I share a birthday with Jim Morrison, but it is also the day that John Lennon was murdered in New York in 1980. Now, my birthday was f&*kin' awesome this year, but this letter from Yoko Ono on my birthday to her late husband on the 27th anniversary of his death has caused me to take a bit of a deep breath and think about how lucky I am to have the life that I do.

Here it is: (from

December 8, 2007
I miss you, John. 27 years later, I still wish I could turn back the clock to the Summer of 1980. I remember everything - sharing our morning coffee, walking in the park together on a beautiful day, and seeing your hand stretched to mine - holding it, reassuring me that I shouldn't worry about anything because our life was good.

I had no idea that life was about to teach me the toughest lesson of all. I learned the intense pain of losing a loved one suddenly, without warning, and without having the time for a final hug and the chance to say, "I love you," for the last time. The pain and shock of that sudden loss is with me every moment of every day. When I touched John's side of our bed on the night of December 8th, 1980, I realized that it was still warm. That moment has haunted me for the past 27 years - and will stay with me forever.

Even harder for me is watching what was taken away from our beautiful boy, Sean. He lives in silent anger over not having his Dad, whom he loved so much, around to share his life with. I know we are not alone. Our pain is one shared by many other families who are suffering as the victims of senseless violence. This pain has to stop.

Let's not waste the lives of those we have lost. Let's, together, make the world a place of love and joy and not a place of fear and anger. This day of John's passing has become more and more important for so many people around the world as the day to remember his message of Peace and Love and to do what each of us can to work on healing this planet we cherish. Let's: Think Peace, Act Peace, and Spread Peace. John worked for it all his life. He said, "there's no problem, only solutions." Remember, we are all together. We can do it, we must. I love you!
