A Very Sad Day

Today has been one of the saddest days I can remember. A few hours ago I got home from work to find a small package addressed to me from Canada. I opened it up to find the book "Access All Areas" by Ninjalicious, the editor of Infiltration zine. I had pre-ordered it months ago and completely forgotten about it.

I've been reading Infiltration for many years now. It has always been inspirational in its content and style. It has been a massive influence on my life, and was one of the reasons I started my website and blog.

While sitting on my bed, looking through the book, I noticed a slip of paper in the package. It said the usual thank-you-for-your-support type thing, but also said that Ninjalicious had died in August. I checked this at and found it to be true.

I feel completely devastated. Infiltration meant so much to me, and since I started reading it I always saw Ninjalicious and his girlfriend(later his wife) Liz and role models. Regular readers will recall that I listed them as people I wanted to meet in the very near future. That was the 19th of August, just a few days before Ninjalicious died.

In the past few hours I've been reading various things that fans of Infiltration have written about the tragic news. It's amazing to see how many lives around the world were enriched by Ninjalicious and his zine.

RIP Ninj, you are mourned by many.

Listening at Work

Just Emily and I at work today. A few students came in, but none whom were particularly interesting. I spent some time listening to "Off The Wall", one of Emmanuel Goldstein's radio shows. Goldstein is currently traveling around the world by ship, train and car, doing a radio show in each major city. See

Listened to Off The Hook when I got home. Goldstein is on the last leg of his trip, traveling back to the USA on a cargo ship.

Catching Up

Fuck... At the time of writing this post, the previous post is dated Friday, August 26th. My sources tell me it's not even August anymore...

I will go through my paper diary and write blog entries for the last couple of weeks very soon, so hang in there, and enjoy the wait:)

Chillin' on a Sunday in da Norwich area

At 2pm Suzi and I cruised over to the Norwich Playhouse, which is being used as a cinema while Cinema City is being renovated. We watched a film made up of clips from the East Anglian Film Archive. We very lucky to get in as the 250-seater theatre was packed out. While we were queuing outside the Playhouse my good friend and jogging partner Edward Pacman walked past. We agreed to meet up with him later as he didn't feel like joining the queue. The film was reasonable, but as I hate Norwich it was difficult to be too interested in it.

We then went over to the Stranger's Hall Museum where we had tea and biscuits in the garden with Edward.
