So long 2011, Hello 2012

To Hell with you 2011, you sucked!!

So 2011 is over and 2012 has began. Thank christ for that, seriously I don’t want to sound cliche but 2011 was probably the worst year for me on a personal level and one of the worst years I’ve witnessed with the crumbling of society since I’ve been alive.

Here is a list of why 2011 was crap and why I reckon 2012 will be a thousand times better.

2011 saw –

*Being one of the millions unemployed in the highest rate of unemployment the UK has seen in decades

*A consistant lack of motivation

*Being in debt

*Everton falling to pieces financially

*The UK turning into a scene from the 80’s with riots throughout the country

*The rise of brain rotting television programmes such as “It’s full of crap in Essex”, “Desperate Scousetarts” and “Geordie Tits”

*The loss of some of television, film, music and sports beloved, and in some cases less appreciated, characters i.e Peter Postlethwaite, Gary Speed, Christopher Hitchens, Liz Taylor, Henry Cooper, Jimmy Saville, Nate Dogg, Joe Fraizer, Jeff Conaway and Poly Styrene to mention but a few.

*The massacre in Norway and other various civil unrest throughout the world

*Justin Bieber and his completely ridiculous fanbase

*Maggie Thatcher still alive and kicking, unfortunately.

2012 will be loads better because –

*Im getting married in July

*I’ll finally be getting settled into a place of my own

*I feel motivated to get things going again, get back into work, out of debt, get healthy etc.

*With a bit of luck some of the mind rot tv will disappear off our screens

*I’ll get to discover loads of new projects that people are putting out and hopefully get involved with (i.e new zines etc)

*Landon Donovan has returned to Everton, this is good right?

*With a bit of luck sometime this year we may finally see the demise of Maggie.

So there, that’s my screw 2011, hello 2012 list done. I mean 2011 wasn’t all that bad, I did make a heap of new friends and got to get involved in some pretty cool activities like the parties at Weavers Door in Liverpool as well as stumbling across alot of nice new clobber. However, I feel 2012 has the potential of being the best year ever. Let’s hope this time next year I’m not saying the same thing about 2012 as I did with 2011.

RIP Gary Speed

Woke up this morning to find out that former Everton skipper Gary Speed had been found dead in his home in Chester at the age of 42. I’m absolutely shocked and devastated to hear this. I remember the day Everton signed Gary Speed, a boyhood Blue, from Leeds and being so chuffed. Although his time at Everton was short lived and he left Everton under not so great circumstances he was still loved at the club, and never gave any less than 101% every time he put the Royal Blue on.

I was devastated the day Gary left Everton for Newcastle, I’m even more devastated knowing he is no longer with us.

Rest In Peace Gary Speed
