Kurt Angle released from WWE

Yes, i’m in shock too. Kurt Angle has been released from the WWE.

Now, i don’t watch WWE a whole lot any more, although i did briefly follow ECW when it started again (although it was rubbish, so i’ve pretty much stopped), but it seemed to me that Kurt Angle was still a very big player.

This news comes as a bit of a surprise really, as when i did follow the WWE, Kurt was always one of my favorite wrestlers, whether face or heel, purely because he could carry a match with anyone. It was also nice to know that he genuinely had the abilities that were claimed since he had an Olympic Gold Medal.

I wish i knew more surrounding these ‘personal issues’, as from what i can see, Kurt has always give alot to the WWE, rushing through surgery just to get back to the ring and pulling in crowds when others couldn’t, and unless this is something very serious, i think its incredibly poor show on WWE’s part. No surprise there I guess…

I look forward to finding out more about this one.

Gilbert & Sullivan goes down a treat!

It was the first night of the Gilbert & Sullivan Society production of ‘The Pirates of Penzance’ last night. Overall, it went very well and the reviewers we had in the audience also seemed to think so! For those who don’t know, i’m playing in the part of Major General Stanley, and was very chuffed to get the following review from the Nottingham Evening Post:

“Andrew Griffiths is a delight as the Major General and his rendition of the tongue-twisting I Am The Very Model of a Modern Major General is delivered with confidence”

The whole cast performed excellently last night – i hope we can do as well and better in the rest of the performances!

For tickets, please contact the Nottingham Arts Theatre.

More on Pride FC Shockwave

After my post the other day, has commented and pointed me to their thread here.

I was actually aware that the event had been cut thanks to John Griffin, but I wasnt aware of the full extent of the cuts.

It’s one thing when Japanese viewers who are getting an event free get a cut down version – at least they got to see highlights of most fights – but when paying viewers in the US don’t get to see what they paid for, i think thats pretty appauling. I really hope they get their act together for the next PPV. It also makes me angry as these fighters train for weeks and put everything into a fight and then it doesn’t even get seen by the majority of viewers!

I don’t know whether this regularally happens on Pride PPV’s – I would assume not – but it has only led to my opinion of Pride dropping further! Let’s hope they get it sorted for next time.
In the meantime – bring on the 4th February 🙂

Next Gen Wars

Well, most of you know that i’m a bit of a Nintendo fanboy, and on top of this I really think the Playstation is a hunk of junk, especially at it’s new price tag! On the other hand, I’d quite like a 360 if i could afford one (which I can’t).

Anyways, came across this site, Next Gen Wars, which tracks how each console is doing worldwide.
I’m batting for the Wii, but more than anything, I want the PS3 to fail!

So remember… DON’T BUY A PS3!

Causes of casino games


In gambling people began to play a thousand years ago. Bones and simple game similar to modern backgammon appeared a long time ago. Then it becomes very popular card. In the European Middle Ages, even played chess for money, which is why the Church even tried several times to ban the game. At first, people were playing either at home or gathered in a variety of taverns and pubs, known as gambling in their castles and estates. But over time, any casino created especially for fans to challenge luck.

Why do people play casino? Perhaps the answer to this question is known to people versed in psychology. In a nutshell, the win at the casino – it’s an opportunity to have fun, and a chance to earn good money. But is it really possible to win the owners of the gambling house or a special site dedicated to gambling?

Obviously, the casino is not profitable to play at a loss. But professional players all the time trying to find some patterns in the gameplay or apply some other methods and abilities that allow them to increase their chances. Therefore, if your players lose weight, one taken separately player could beat the casino. After all, conventional casinos have started to create entire database on people who are too often win. For such people, a casino game is now – banned. It’s hard to say what is the cause of their extraordinary luck. The law, they, like, do not break. But if you allow them to play on, many casinos will be ruined. However, looking at these lucky ones, a lot of players around the world, too, think that they have a chance to stay in the win. It is possible that among them will be really few people who smile Fortuna.

The benefits of virtual casino



More and more people today are interested in the theme of virtual gambling – we can say that this sphere:

• It is becoming more and more popular;

• acquired a huge following.

Of course, amateurs, that is novices might be interested in questions relating to the differences between playing in the real and virtual casino gambling. In essence, there was no significant difference. However, many professionals insist that the benefits of still greater in online casinos as a more modern method. At least, one can not dispute the existence of unconditional benefits and advantages available to this game.

Traditional as well as online casino can be eaten by several common features – in particular, we are talking about the feeling of pleasure that can be obtained from the game. Of course, this passion, which can be exciting and undefeated. People like to feel your own luck, and besides – many of them are starting to engage in virtual gambling in an effort to earn a decent finances. You agree that additional funds can be quite useful. In addition, many people are beginning to engage in gambling as a supplementary earnings, and subsequently make their main income.

Decent wages

It’s no secret that people want to earn money, using less effort and get more money. Naturally, it is entirely without effort does not work – at least, should learn the basics of a particular game of chance, and this has needed some effort.

Among other things, we should not forget that gambling allow interesting to spend time, it is our partner, and this is also important. Often people suffer the way to kill free time – here they get a chance to see him, and exciting, and useful at the same time.

There are many games and slots, capable not just of interest to the players, but to become a favorite pastime, to which people are willing to devote many hours and even days. The possibility while still making money and not go out of your own home (except to withdraw cash) – if it concerns online casino – is indispensable and makes such gambling even more favorite among the players. No wonder that the total number of players in recent years has increased significantly and continues to increase.

Gambling atmosphere

Many people are used to the same slot machines, which were subsequently banned by law, and in virtual casinos are able enough to get all the pleasure of gambling, which they had previously enjoyed. It turns out that the online casino is able to transfer as much as possible the atmosphere, similar to that felt by people in a real casino and similar gaming establishments. The number of slots is much larger and more diverse – indeed, anywhere else such a variety of slot machines do not come across as the online casino. Experts also say that the chances to win in this case, too, it turns out to be more.

However, and the loss in gambling should not turn around mental failure: there is everything, and even the experienced and professional players from time to time to lose. It should accept it as an inevitable event. It is only necessary to develop a strategy game, try to minimize the risks and possible losses in case of loss, and in any case do not give up, do not give up.

All skills are acquired over time and do not come at once and can not be obtained from birth. Even game strategy differs special personality and produced on the basis of personal experience.
