These are the personal opinions of Gears

Stuff just comes out of my head.

Self driving cars. Still a little way to go..

Here’s a Volvo XC60 in the Dominican Republic showing off its self-parking technology. This should mean that the car can plonk itself into a space without you having to faff about trying to get out or slot it in yourself. It seems that 99% of people are too stupid to stick their car into a bloody space. Weirdos. Trouble is,… Read more →

Random dance tunes for May

Here’s some more tunes which I’m enjoying at the moment. Most of these get pumped out on Kiss or internet radio stations. The first is a really catchy tune which you may have heard yourself humming or perhaps singing the “I wanna runaway” line without realising who it is. This is “Runaway” by Galantis… This track is a great one… Read more →

Warning – Random tunes I like approaching. Post one!

This tune is testing the speakers in my car on a daily basis. I’m trying to find the Chris Lake edit of this tune but can’t locate it right now. I’ve purposefully not linked to the official video because it’s a bit violent. This one is ripped from Radio 1 and has a bit of chatting on but you can… Read more →

PPI and accident claims specialists.

Yet another call today. This time on a SIM only activated two weeks ago.  The caller said.. “Hello, I’m from (Company name) Solicitors, it’s about the accident you had last year.” Now, I get this quite a bit and it’s particularly annoying. I’ve tried putting the phone down, telling them not to call again and so on, but it happens… Read more →

Oh my good God. Words fail me…

Before you even start to get your head around the “complaint” that the lady is trying to put forward to the officer, another lady comes along with quite possibly the best finishing sentence ever.. Read more →

That Cuprinol advert

There’s an advert on at the moment for some Cuprinol fence paint. It shows two impossibly beautiful people NOT getting paint all over themselves and somehow SMILING and dancing through the whole miserable experience. Pah… So anyway. I could waffle on about this but basically the backing track on this advert is this. Rather cool old skool tunage… Read more →

Lots of these on the t’interweb. This is particularly good

If you do anything on the internet then there’s the chance you’re going to get slagged off by seemingly ordinary people who use the immediacy of the web to respond with your ill-thought-out comments. YouTube is one of the worst places to do anything, because the comments are chuffin awful. Here you go… Swearing .. lots of swearing.. Read more →


Robinsons continue to disappoint

The Robinsons squash drinks have been a big favourite of ours for many years, especially the sugar free variety. Trouble is, they’ve recently changed the “recipe” of their drinks and have “reformulated” both the Apple and Blackcurrant and the Orange drinks we’ve enjoyed. Now, without any bias, our entire family hate the new¬†stuff. The new orange flavour is syrupy and… Read more →

Goodbye (current format of) Top Gear..

A bit of a crap way for it all to end, but you really can’t get away with punching a colleague, no matter how you look at it. Especially when you rang your boss to admit it. Anyhow. Jeremy Clarkson will no doubt do a “Jonathan Ross” and hop across to another channel to continue on. In this world of… Read more →
