Too Much Sex And Violence #2

Back in November 2011 I was lucky enough to get my grubby hands on a copy of Too Much Sex And Violence Issue 1. I promptly blogged, twittered and shared what I considered not only a great read and something different from the formulaic rot you'll find in your local newsagent. TMSV was written by the wordsmith known to his friends as Rol Hirst. You can find him lurking in the murky crevices of the digital world and can be found at these usual haunts.

Issue 2 can be purchased by going to either of the websites or simply emailing Mr Hirst and asking "Yo, Rol how do I procure this much hyped Issue 2? .. Please"

So what do I have to say about TMSV? What will you find? What does it smell like?

Well between actual laugh out moments and disturbing fellatio scenes you'll find clever quotable dialogue, interesting 3 dimensional characters and a set of intriguing 'chapters' that have me wondering, 'where are they heading and what will they be doing next?'

I am eagerly waiting for issue 3 to drop and I can only honestly say that about 3-4 other comics.

They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky,
They're all from Fathomby!

Until then hail to Pump Number 3!

Super Bowl XLVI Predictions - New York Giants vs New England Patriots

As a staunch New York Giants supporter I am going to try to predict what is going to happen on the Big Blue side of the ball for the Superbowl rematch against the Tom Brady led Patriots.


Eli Manning - I think due to the hot form of #10 the Giants are going to try to exploit the Pats Secondary and we'll see Manning try air it out and find one of his plethora of speedy options.

24 Completions from 39 Attempts for 288 Yards 2 td's and 1 Int


Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham are a formidable trio and will look to gain ascendancy from the beginning. I can't see the Pats containing all 3 and it isn't implausible that 2 of the 3 will have 100 yard games.

Victor Cruz - 9 Receptions for 124 yards
Hakeem Nicks - 5 Receptions for 97 yards 1 TD
Mario Manningham - 3 Receptions for 52 yards 1 TD
Jake Ballard (TE) - 5 Receptions 42 yards


Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs have been a bit hit and miss thoughout the year and their success could ultimately decide the outcome.

Ahmad Bradshaw - 14 Carries 54 Yards
Brandon Jacobs - 9 Carries 49 Yards 1 TD


With the most fearsome and potent front four rotation in the league I'm expected Brady to get a good look at the underside of this Indy Dome. There are several legitimate threats to Tommy Boys health and they are in no order: Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka, Osi Umenyoira and Rocky Bernhard. All have recorded sacks during the post-season and LB Michael Boley has dropped the QB on an impressive 2 sacks also. For the Giants to score more points than the Patriots they will need to hit Tom Brady as often and as hard as possible to try to rattle him.

JPP 1 Sack
Tuck 1 Sack
Umenyoira 1.5 Sacks
Rocky Bernhard 0.5 Sacks

Giants 24 Patriots 27

I will come back next week and look at where I was wrong (hopefully the score) and analyse the game.

Until then hail to the Vintage46!
