Well, this has been a bit different. Tidying, sorting, recycling revising old stories and CV, catching up on stuff, seeing Rogue 1 twice and planning Dr. Rrr Series 2.

In the midst of all that, I have even begun sorting photos and clips from last few hikes and compiled a compilation of the two dozen Comic Cons/Cosplay meets and events from 2016.


It’s been an awesome journey, trying out new things, especially Anime- Attack on Titan etc and learning new things/expanding my Cultural horizons. Chinese New Year was awesome, it’s still the Year of the Monkey, and a right cheeky one it has been!

Recently I’ve become fascinated and even captivated by the concept of Bunraku- Japanese Puppetry, something akin to Thunderbirds-style, indeed Starfleet was an 80’s Bunraku that was even more popular in the West than in Japan- it was a shame a fire destroyed the original puppets though. Thunderbolt Fantasy is a Taiwan-based show and something I’d like to emulate at some point- after Series 2 of Dr. Rrr though!

Anyway, 300 videos. Ever changing-ever learning, My Cosday will go on!

Mr. Tiglet's Blog


Here it is again, the final adventure of the NeoDoctor with another cover!

I posted the story yesterday morning with The Prophet paradigm. Last night The Mona Lisa twins gave me permission to use the photo of me and Them at the Cavern Club last year for the cover. Oh what timing!

So, I have corrected a couple of typos and updated and saved a new PDF version of the story.


Nearly the same, but not quite!

Events- Southport Comic Con and back to the Cavern club

Another Comic Book Convention this weekend, along with a walk around Southport, then amble around the Albert Dock and off to the Cavern Club to see Mona Lisa Twins again. That was all yesterday, spent today working on photos and updating the Tigletverse Photography page. Need another day added to the weekend just to relax and watch Superman.


Anyway, that is the spectacular update!


Super-Sunday is a-coming!!!









Thanks Again to Robert Mann!


Anything can happen Tuesday!


Well, I went walking anyway! I did start by working on a superhero short story for an anthology submission, but my family were driving me crazy, so got out of the house and headed west into Liverpool. I thought why stop there and then thought-let’s get out further, see how far I could go. So got to the far side of the Wirral and thought- why isn’t there a ferry over or a tunnel under the Dee so I could get to Wales? Damn, so went on a circular amble from West Kirby up to Hoylake then along the beach and back down to the Marine Lake.

Might not sound that exciting, but it helped me complete a section of the Wirral Circular Trail I had not done before (just leaving a section between Hooton and Eastham to do- huzzah!) and giving me space to clear my head and get a bit of inspiration. I have to say I am chuffed with the results, four new vids in a day and an interesting NEW Series- I have had a few ideas of what to do next, though I’m back in work so there’s a time and locale limit- basically having to get to Chester every day, no matter where I go.

So, there we are, Anything Can Happen Tuesdays have begun!!!





Okay, picking up from where I left off the other day. ITA is now an archive, but I will end up putting up new posts at some point, today it’s Tiglet’s turn!!

I have been wanting to do some kind of Photography page, maybe on Facebook, along with Ian’s Travelblog Adventures, Tiglet’s Travels and Infinite Whoniverses, but four pages? Three blogs and Pinterest, plus Linked In, Youtube and Twitter, how much can I juggle? Well the ball’s been dropped on everything at one point or another, so I need to focus, consolidate, and I guess the non-updates on hiking have meant that’s the one to go. Not that I’d ever give up hiking, just writing about it.

SO, rolling everything together. I have sorted a page on Pinterest, but since it only let’s you post one pin at a time, it’ll take ages to get what I want, I guess I’ll just have to pick my best pictures. It’s a start.

And with all that said, I’m off to Beatleweek (sigh) It never ends does it?

Good job I like a challenge then!!




anniversary-2xMY 6TH BLOGGERVERSARY- PART 1-

‘So you can’t fly if you never try’-

Reluctant Heroes- Attack on Titan


So, today is my 6th Bloggerversary- hurrah for me!!

There are times when I wonder why I bother- The only Travelblog I have to write up is going up to Pex Hill, so I’m wanting to pack in Ian’s Travelblog Adventures, maybe archive the page and try and focus on turning Tiglets page into a photography page, put all my eggs in one basket so to speak. I’m also not sure what I’m doing for Beatleweek this time. Of course I’ll be catching the Mona Lisa Twins, but I’ll have to see who else is on.

I just know I’ve been fed up, disillusioned and frustrated with things for a while now. Trying to make changes, apply for jobs, write new stories rather than the four I keep submitting to magazines. It has become something of a ritual for me to spread a dozen half-completed, completed-but-need-editing and just-begun stories over my bed and go through them a sentence at a time. I have edited one story (Captivated- now Making the First Move) but after a month it’s still doing my head in. I think it’s because I saw a lot of anthologies and magazines with upcoming deadlines, so at least one is ready for the end of the week! (Splickety magazine deadline 26th August- All’s fair in love and uniform issue) So that’s one done anyway!

One thing that I have really enjoyed is doing more photography with the Cosplaying and anime crowd. The Japan Day on Saturday was brilliant, so shall have to post photos from that. Indeed, maybe I should stop wasting time with the elitist BBC and western media and submit stuff to Anime and Manga companies instead. Tiglet as a Manga? That could work! Tiglets Time Travels as an Anime- oh yes indeedy!! I am working on separate reviews for Attack on Titan and other anime, but I am surprising myself by how much I’m enjoying watching just first episodes of things and seeing what happens, dizzying but good.

So, change- I need it!!! How’s it going to happen? Zod knows, because I’m Clueless!

PS- I wrote all that this morning and a few things have happened since then-

Firstly, I have introduced drop-down menus to archive and categories on blog- viola!

Secondly, I exported Ian’s Travelblog Adventures onto a Page instead, so it’s still loading so I don’t know if it’s worked, here’s hoping!  (It didn’t!)

Nope, so I included a link, which mean I’ve got two ‘About’ pages now, looks like I’ll have to continue this tomorrow. Right, I need cake- make a wish!



The Mona Lisa Twins- California Dreaming

Mona lisa twins at bw16I have to admit that when I was a Student, I never really spent much time down in the Cavern Quarter on Mathew Street, the birthplace of the Beatles and where many, many bands have played over the years.

It might be hard to believe, with all the videos I’ve made of The Mona Lisa Twins, a few other bands and Beatleweek last summer, plus all the footage that didn’t get edited or shared on Youtube or Facebook or the blog.

Last summer I did let my inner Beatlemaniac out into the street to play, as well as getting into a 60’s groove, though I know I really need to get a new record player, get Hard Day’s Night and the best of the Beachboys down from the loft and repair a few scratches, oh yes- Vinyl will come back soon!

In the meantime- this short, three track album gives a taste of the Twins from their early-pre-Cavern days

“If you’re going to San Francisco, you’re going to meet some gentle people there. ”

San Francisco is a great opener, a fantastic harmony and gentle rhythm, a classic cover of the song by Scott Mackensie.


“All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey.”

California Dreamin’ is another favourite, and the reason I got this, as I was interested to listen to the Twins take on this classic Mamas an’ Papas song, as it too was featured on the soundtrack to Forrest Gump.


“This could be Heaven, or this could be Hell”

For some reason, I thought this had been on the soundtrack for Forrest Gump, but I was wrong. Hotel California has a haunted feel to it. A spooky quality, a creepiness like an episode of the X-Files or Supernatural.


California Dreaming is available from the Mona Lisa Twins Website-


And the videos are on their Youtube Channel-

And of course there’s Beatleweek 2016 to look forward to-

See you there!
