"Give, Get Given" - Part II

Orange Rockcorps – The Gig

As promised I’m going to tell you about the gig which was hosted at The Royal Albert Hall on the 24th of September.

We took our seats in the circle, so we had a direct view down onto the stage, I preferred where I sat last year, but it was still pretty cool. A Skillz was the DJ for the night, he started off the evening and played between the breaks too. He was really good at getting the crowd pumped. Played some good tunes, got us all out of our seats and onto our feet.

Mark Ronson and the Business INTL started off the evening. Crowd didn't go as crazy as I would have hoped they were more looking forward to the later acts. I really enjoyed the set though. "The Bike Song" and "Valerie", that was me happy, but then he decided to bring Boy George onto the stage - I swear I nearly cried, kept thinking how jealous my mother would have been, and he played "Somebody To Love Me".

I highly recommend the new album - "Record Collection".

Taio Cruz then took the stage. Teased us with the songs he didn't have time to sing in full by giving us an a capella. He did however do "Dynamite" and "Break Your Heart" so I was very happy.

Then the gorgeous Alex Zane announced we had a surprise performance in the form of Plan B, I'm not a huge fan, but I did enjoy watching one of the girls we did our project with, as she looked like she was about to fly down and have her way with him then and there on the stage. He did play "She Said" though, which made me happy as I actually knew the words.

N-Dubz took to the stage next with hits like "Number One" and "Playing With Fire" - Unfortunately Mr Hudson wasn't singing with them. The whole of The Royal Albert Hall went mad.

The last surprise they had for us was from the Orange RockCorps Allstars (Roll Deep, Aggro Santos, Bashy, Wretch32, Bluey Robinson and Cleo Sol) who sang the fist Orange Rockcorps song: 'Give a Little Love' - check out the Official Video below:

The final act of the night were the amazing Pendulum who made the whole of the hall go crazy insane. The floors were vibrating from the bass, everyone was jumping about. Such an amazing set. Really glad I got to see them again - Last year I saw them at Reading Festival, and it was in the NME/Dance tent, people were fainting in there, it was so hot and packed, this year it was nice to enjoy the music, and look down on all the people moshing instead of being dragged into a pit!

At the end of the night, as with last year, we got a USB with all the footage from the concert which was in a bracelet form, this year it was a paintbrush! And came with information and a free Monkey sim!

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
