Paul "Mad Dog" Williams. RIP

Death is so final.
An obvious statement but when it happens that finality is very stark. 
You'll never see that person again, laugh with them, reminisce, see all those little nuances that made them, them. 
All those times you spent together are now only with you.
Mag Dog was, as you may gather a bit of a lose cannon.
A crazy fucker who at his peak would smack someone in the mouth without even thinking and then go home to tend to his many rescue dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs!
A bit of a dichotomy. A vegetarian, animal loving, outspoken, hellraiser.
Cancer finally got the better of him last week. He'd battled it for six years.
Dog taught me so much about fabrication. We built my Harley together and a fair few of my lights.
He's was super talented, funny, outspoken and introduced me not only to the core hot rod scene but to a lot of good people too. Like many people gone, theres now just an empty space filled with nothing but memories. I'll really miss him.
Ride in peace brother.

Crocker&Woods 'Orse box.

Built this over the winter as a second wagon and as it turns out it's become number one. 
Small but so much easier to set up and break down than the other one.
Started as a green horesebox full of hay, now its better equipped than my cafe ever was!
I love it.

Grenfell tower. Ishmahil Blagrove



This completely preventable tragedy is disgusting. Whole families burned alive because of cost cutting and decisions based upon budgets and vanity instead of human safety. £millions spent on a flammable facade but no fire suppression system or alarms fitted. Its pretty obvious the "refurbishment" was mosty done to placate the rich who look at it not serve the poor who live in it. Surely in this day and age you build things that are fire proof?? Fuck, even my sofa is fire proof.

My thoughts and love go out to the families and friends of those who needlessly lost their lives.
I pray the enquiry is unbiased and those responsible are hung out to dry or even hung, drawn and quartered to be honest.

Anyway. This guy. Ishmail Blagrove. Strong, articulate, passionate, educated. A longtime resident at speakers corner, he's well versed, but none the less he makes some very good points. Confrontational yes but you can't argue with the truth.

Long time...

Used to be on this thing every day. 2012 onwards. Long time ago, galaxy far and all that. Then Instagram came and the blog went out of fashion for many. Looking back through blogs I followed, most end mid 2014. Shame really cos this thing was a bit of a community, way more considered than IG and a lot of fun. Was kinda therapeutic, a message board and form of communication occasionally and sort of diary like. Gonna continue to update it. Not religiously but now and again. Good to look back and see what was what. Anyhow. Here's whats happening at this particular moment in time.
