Damned Disciples

Me and our Cath went to see the The Damned,like we've done for the last three years,Carling Academy again,this year Zombina and the Skellitors were the support band and were nothing short of brilliant,put everyone into a good mood for the main band.
Seamed like hours for the main band to come on but then i noticed it was a bit more full than usuall,the atmosphere was buzzing,the band came on and it was out of this world,this band may have been performing now for 30 years but they have still got it,we got all the old and new,Elloise,new rose,smash it up and little miss....we screamed for more and we got it,looking forward to next year!
The video i recored with my phone isent up to much but i was getting knocked about everywhere,hope it captures the moment?

Another Tuesday Night Weirdo

Tuesday gone Ronnie gets a fare off Yates's rank a few mins into the journey the guy says "floor it" Ronnie said he could tell he was a horrible bastard with a bad attitude so he tells him"this isn't a formula 1 car lad,it's just an auld taxi" so the guy rants on more,"just put your fucking foot down,your driving too slow"so Ron pulls over having listened enough of the guy who was now trying to get out ,but Ron kept his foot on the brake,keeping the doors locked,"let me out" "I wont,pay your taxi fare,then I'll let you out" then it happened the guy did a bull run head first though the door window (which was closed at the time) got up and ran away,Ronnie picks his jaw up off the floor and radio's through for assistance,so a load of taxi drivers are chasing after this guy who's trying his best to get away jumping over garden walls and going through the old school,then someone saw him going into the Arriva Buss Station with his coat wrapped around his arm,the people in the buss station phoned for the police and ambulance coz he was bleeding badly,when they took the coat off his arm a large piece of flesh has hanging on by a thread....
and he was arrested at the hospital and is now out on bail......All for the great sum of three pound fifty on the meter.

I KID YOU NOT

One of the lads had a bit of trouble over the weekend,so decided to take the guy the police station,(we were always told,waterloo,copy lane and stanley road were 24 hour police stations) so he decides to take him to w.loo,so on the way the operator says,that may not be a 24 hour police station you may have to take him to copy lane,so another driver was in Waterloo and said he'll cheak it out,it was closed,but their is a phone outside to talk to their deskboard,so he asks "where is the nearest police station in Sefton" and guess what.............................THEIR ISENT ANY.....................ALL POLICE STATIONS IN SEFTON CLOSE AT 10PM............................
WHAT A JOKE
IF YOU HAVE ANY TROUBLE,PREPARE TO FIGHT????????????????????????????

Too Much Turkey

Take it easy on the Turkey ppl,this is what it does to you?

CRACKPOTS

Driving down Knowsley Road (again) I see Snellys cab parked up and slow down to see if he's ok,"Gaz theirs a young girl getting a hiding here" he tells me so I do a uturn park behind him while he sees if the girl is ok,I hadn't even got out my cab when I see a police van opposite so I give a beep to get Snells attention and point to the police van,so,while the police are sorting it out,Snell comes over to tell me what happened,turns out it was just two teenagers having a scrap,then something attracts my attention to my passenger window,a small scrawny smackhead looking guy doing a mongey laugh,"what does the smackhead want" I ask,"dunno"then the walks round"what's happening"he asks,so snell says"a young girls just been battered and someone phoned the police so it's all underhand now"then the guy says "my mate got shot ye know(he mentioned his name but I forgot coz I wasn't interested)".The look on Snells face was a picture as his jaw dropped and said"did he" this started me laughing as I'd met this guy b4 and knew he was a crackpot,"I'll see ye later Gaz"snell tells me and gets in his cab,so the loon starts telling me more crap,"he's a so and so (pointing at Snell)and I've got both your reg's,I know the (gangsters name I've never heard of)they love me" "that's smashin that lad" I tell him as I start to turn my steering wheel to drive away,so I gave the guy a little hand gesture,the police were laughing at him as well.

Tony The Tiger

This guy is weird,rumors going round he was in a coma once for a few months,anyway,he's a part time driver(got a day job works the cab Thurs- Sun)so Saturday Young Harry the operator blows out anyone handy the office to change a tyre for Tony,he'd already been in the office and said"I've got a flat tyre" and Harry said "so" so we all forgot about him coz nowone likes him any way,the after a while we get the same message "anyone handy the office to change a tyre for Tony" then unbelievable someone offers to do it,came down the office and changed Tony's tyre while he stands their and watches????????I used to be a tyre fitter and I was thinking that he wanted a new tyre fitting onto a rim and was going to offer my helping hand,lucky I didn't,coz if I'd had turned up and saw he only wanted his wheel changing coz he had a flat and didn't want to get his hands dirty I would have had to give him a slap................... That is taking the Piss?

A BRIGHT SPARK

Steven Ready Might be a few things but one thing he's not is an Electrician,doing a bit of DIY wiring,he switched off the mains,took of the face plate of a socket,realized then that he needed his Stanley knife.........But couldednt find it.........So he had to switch the mains back on,found his Stanley knife and started to cut back wires...........THEN ................BBBBBBBBBBBBUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ,Mains were still on and as he tried to pull away he slashed his thumb with the knife,now this is not funny and shame on any of you that laughed,but when he told his daughter the story,young Emma said,funny you should say that but,I came home the other day and the cat was standing still shaking,so she took the baby out his pram took his coat of and saw to him,then she remembered the cat,looking at him again,he was still in the same spot shaking........So she went over to it............On closer inspection,it had only bit into an electric cable and was getting electrocuted.....LOL.........But its a happy ending the cat made a full recovery......Just lost a few lives?

When I Thought It couldn't Get Any Worse

I spoke too soon about mischief night,I only got a brick through my window tonight, I saw the little bastards the corner of Grey St and Knowsley Rd, but when I got hit did a u turn to go after them they were gone?

Later on in the night Brian 46 wanted to get a few lads to go into the north park to sort the kids out,his response was dismal,about 3 lads offered to go with him,what are we working with? Is this it? Do we just let the kids walk all over us,next time it may be one of the non volunteers,will they want any help?

I'm Going To Be Rich?

From: "susan sumah" <susansumah9@hotmail.fr> Reply-To: susansumahprivate@yahoo.com Subject: FROM MISS SUSAN SUMAH Date: Tue, 31 Oct 2006 11:22:38 +0100 FROM MISS SUSAN SUMAH 521 Cocody Abidjan Cote D' Ivoire West Africa. Hello It is my pleasure to write you after much consideration, since I cannot be able to see you face to face at first. Being the only daughter of my father, late Mr innocent sumah from Sierra-Leone Africa (WA) I am 25 years of age. My father was limited liability Diamond and Gold merchant in Freetown Sierra-Leone before his untimely death. After his business trip to abidjan to nagociate on a Good Investment business he wanted to invest in abidjan. A week after he came back from abidjan , he got an accident with my mother of which my mother died instantly but my father died after five days in a private hospital on that faithful afternoon, I didn?t know that my father was going to leave me after I had lost my mother, but before he gave up the ghost, it was as if he knew he was going to die. He my father, (MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE) he disclosed to me that he deposited sum of $12,000,000,00 US Dollars (Twelve Million Dollars) in a security company here in abidjan That the money was meant for his Diamond and Gold company he wanted to establish in abidjan though, according to my father he deposited the money in a trunk box but declared it as vital family belongings. He single handed me the key of the box and the deposit certificate and instructed me to seek for a reliable and trust worthy business partner for my life time investment abroad. Now I have succeeded in locating the security company here in abidjan also confirmed the items with most honest and confidentiality. Now I am soliciting for your assistance to help me lift this money out from abidjan to your safe account abroad so that we should invest it in any meaningful lucrative business in your country because this is my only hope in life. I am willing to offer you 10% of the total fund if only you can help me out of my present predicament. Awaiting anxiously to hear from you so that we can discuss the modalities of this transaction. I thank you for your understanding while i will be waiting for your immediate response. Yours sincerely. MISS Susan Sumah


This is the first time i'v ever been sent a scam,and to tell you the truth i'm quite pleased,so i've sent them a reply saying how sorry i am she's lost her parents and i'd love to help.......only to try and drag it on LOL.

Mischief Night




While i got through last night virtually untouched(got a small metal odject lashed at me also an egg thrown that missed) some drivers wernt as lucky,Steven off 87 got hit with 11 eggs and a large baking potatoe,the police were out in force and did a wonderfull job,but.....operation TROGAN.....the police borrowed a cab,1 driving and 4 in the back and were verry hard to get in touch with,and when they were in touch with our office they said "we're just monitering the situation and when we see anything we'll radio through for unformed police" and by that time the kids were off. So we'll have to wait for a report to see if their was any prossecutions?

The Captin

I look forward to picking this guy up,he's so funny,calls you everything under the sun,new drivers throw him out thinking he's trouble but you just have to laugh at him and give him the same back.

No Law

Here in Sefton we're wondering if their is any LAW,kids can throw eggs,bricks and their household contents at cabs,I believe police cars get the same,Fire services get called out to a fire,and they get the same,surely someone knows these kids and could tell their parents, or are their parents too pissed up or off their head on drugs to give a shit,it's not only Liverpool,England IT'S EVERYWHERE NOW,Yob Culture is coming to an area near you,and what can you do about it....................NOTHING....................With Human Rights and Policical Correctness,if you take the law into your own hands ,then you are liable to prosecution,if you phone the police you could wait up to 2 hours if their bussy,that's in the day time at night.................................................................Most police stations are CLOSED..................................... YES THAT'S RITE....................................CLOSED,so if you find yourself getting attacked by a YOB (HOODY) be careful not to harm him and ask him to stay calm for a few hours till the ...POLICE...Arrive

The Royle Family


Six years this has been off our TV and I missed it like mad,so when they announced their was going to be a one off one hour special I was over the moon,got some beers in waiting to laugh my socks off,and it didn't let me down except for the second half when Nana died,I could have cried my eyes out,but it went funny again,and was well worth the wait,hope a new series is planned for the future?

CLOCKWORKMARGARET AT THE BARFLY

I know it's only the second gig,but it never went as planed,they were verry strict on the door about age,so most of their mates being of the average age of 17,never got in,being a bigger club than the Zanzibar,made it look empty,but what can you do?the main band were The Hours,and they are a great band,so they must have been disapointed with the turnout.Good news is,i know a guy who is a reporter for the Liverpool Echo(he's writing a book about the club Eric's,i got interviewed coz i got arrested on the last night...long story!)and he's going to review the band.

CLOCKWORKMARGARET THE CONCERT

The bands first gig went off great,they got a brilliant review...from chromewaves..(http://www.chromewaves.net/index.php?itemid=2328)


ClockworkmargaretSometimes something shows up in your inbox (or in this case, your MySpace friends requests) that out of the blue, just beguiles you. And by "you", I mean me. It's probably far too early to judge Liverpool's Clockworkmargaret - after all, they look barely out of their teens (if even that old), haven't had even a half dozen rehearsals and I think they played their first-ever gig last night. Yet they have some recorded output available on their MySpace and the one song - a cover of my possibly my favourite Elliott Smith song - is just wonderful. The sweetness of the Catherine's voice combined with her Scouse accent suits the song's delicate melody perfectly, imbueing the song with youthful innocence rather than Smith's weariness. And when Jini's harmonies come in at the very end, it's sublime. Barely two minutes long and yet it somehow breaks my heart. The original on offer is not surprisingly a good deal rougher, but still displays a lot of potential. As I said, it's probably still waaaaay too early to place bets but I'm definitely keen to hear what they do next.MP3: Clockworkmargaret - "Say Yes"MP3: Clockworkmargaret - "She"np - Early Day Miners / Offshore

JOKE

An Irish man An Aussie and a scouser were in a pub,they see a man sitting at a table who looks like Jesus Christ,so they send him over 3 pints,larger,guiness bitter.So later Jesus comes over to thank the men for the drinks,he shakes the hand of Paddy who is instantly cured of his arthritus,he shakes hands with the Aussie who is instantly cured of his bad back,the scouser shouts don't you fucking touch me,I'm on disability benefit!..............................LOL

While we can all have a laugh about our selfs,its only funny if you know its meant as a joke?A guy who owned a bar in Cyprus told us a shit joke "what do you call a scouser on a bike" so i ruined the joke and told him "a robber" this joke might have been slighly funny if the guy was a mate,but he wasent.so we left,and he never got a tip,but,his bar will never take off,till he learns when he knows a person good enough to insult them?

What do you think?

Nutter

I was just pulling on the Yates rank at about 12.30am when I saw an old fat guy stick his hand out at the shoe market buss stop,so I thought weird fucker and took no notice,if he wanted a cab,he only had to cross the road,so I got out may cab for a gass and looking over the road the guy looked like he had a torch in his hand,(must be his mobile phone I thought)about half an hour later I'm heading back to Yates,when I see Luke pulling away from the weird guy and joined the Yates rank,so I had to ask didn't I ?"what went on their Luke" he says "the guys a fucking nutter,he flagged me,so I pulled over,he walked in front of my cab,shone a torch at my number plate and said"I've got your number,I was only looking at my watch""
