Four years ago I started a tongue-in-cheek video project for I’m Not Gonna Play Your Games Anymore. I recorded all the raw clips, but found that they kept freezing in my video editor, making it impossible to sync, so I abandoned the project. Well I recently changed my laptop and when transferring my old files to the new laptop, I came across these clips and thought I’d have another go. Technical difficulties overcome and here it is. Enjoy!
On Sunday 21st April 2013, I completed the London Marathon in 3 hours, 42 minutes and 57 seconds. That comfortably beat my target time of 3 hrs 45 mins, despite the fact that over the last 2 miles I was suffering with cramp in both calves and having to stop and stretch them every couple of minutes. It rather spoiled the finish for me, as I was in agony with it by then and had to stop and stretch only 100 yards from the finish line!
But it didn’t spoil the day as a whole which was absolutely amazing. Cheered on by the crowds every step of the way. An incredible atmosphere and an unforgettable experience. And most importantly, combined with the money raised from Acoustic For Autism, over £2,400 was raised for the National Autistic Society. Thanks so much to everyone that supported me.

A number of years back, I wrote and recorded a song for a girl that I would eventually go on to marry. It originally appeared on my third demo album, “Mercurial Moods”, but very few copies of this demo album were made. In fact the only time a significant number of people will have heard it was at my wedding reception – I had the DJ slip it in after the first dance! Romantic eh?!
Well, last night I was digging around in my hard drive and found it, listened to it, and thought, why on Earth haven’t I ever released this? Read more
By now it’s 1973 / 2003. Pete has become so engrossed in his ever more complicated life that he finds himself brought sharply back down to Earth when the shopkeeper reminds him that the 10 years he had to live this double existence is very nearly up. When time is up, Pete will remain in one or other of the two timelines forever. He hasn’t given it a moment’s thought before now. It’s decision time. Read more
