The Synthetic Drey. Rarely updated.

Warning: This page is often updated really badly, generally new bits are added, while the original text remains unchanged, this can lead to some confusion, but hey! What you gonna do?

Hello, welcome to my space, pull up a chair, spark up a ciggy and crack open a can from the fridge. Or don't, I mean, it's not compulsory or anything, I'm just trying to be polite here. Thought I'd better explain myself a little better. So here's a little information about me.

About the Plastic Squirrel.

Unlike a certain well-known literary character, I am not from a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of betelgeuse, but am in fact, from Guildford, but I live in the sunny paradise of Bideford in North Devon, and have done for ages. I can still say I'm in my early twenties for at least another 5 months or so, but afterwards I will start to lie about my age. I've been a professional musician since I was just 15 years old, and so have spent a lot of time either unemployed or doing other jobs to make money between gigs. Currently I've been between gigs for about a year and a half, so it's a lot like calling yourself an artist, know what I mean?
Have recently taken up the sport of cross dressing here on h2g2, and now sport a floopy dress, a pair of Army boots, a fez, and Batty may yet succeed in the propellor bra, but I hope not. It's always fun, will keep you updated on the subject of the dresses and stuff, there was a good reason for it once, but I forget now. Oh yeah, and contrary to what some will say, I AM NOT A PERMED SQUIRREL!!
I've finally bowed down to peer pressure, you can now see what I look like, and read loads of dull info about me here.

Me on h2g2

Agh! A pigeon! Kill it! Kill it! KILL IT NOW! Anyhow, here on h2g2, I've only gone and become the official tormentor of pigeons, seagulls and other assorted birdlife of the Campaign to rename Thursday Thing, which on the whole seems to have been a good move. May join some other places, may not. Gave some serious thought to joining the procrastinators recently, but didn't get round to it. I've been putting off writing anything useful here for a while, but now I'm supposed to be recording this new CD that I've been writing, and working on for the past year, I thought it was time I did this (funny that). I've updated it again as well, supposed to be writing at the moment, so that explains it. Still haven't joined the procrastinators, plum forgot all about it. Have now. Just got round to putting it up here.
Okay, am now an official Procrastinator
Also the Keeper of Elvis Impersonations
And an h2g2 Freak (but only cos I had to press the button)
And a very, very proud member of the Anti-Abba Society
And the High Priest of the Church of the Holy Tail (which I started for Batty and must get around to building sometime)I've built it now!!
I have been known to do a little undercover work for the Anti-Squirrel League in my spare time.
I recently acquired a team of Jedi Badgers, and entered them in Oblivion's mutant games you could have a team of mutants too! Wahey!
I'm now part of the wonderful United Friends of h2g2 space as well. Are you?

Looky a Spork!!!!

Well it worked on Lifson's test page anyway!!!

Nice places to visit.

I'm often to be found at Planet-Tolkien Where I earnt the title Community fiend at one point. As a complete Tolkien nut, I can heartily recommend it as the best place on the net for other Tolkien nuts.
If you want to hear some really funny music (don't let your kids listen though, it's pretty sick stuff) then you can find my old band Lean Against The Washing Machine here. It's pretty funny, but about 6 years old now.
Or another old band, which is far more tasteful is The Dagobah System highly recommended.
Or for what I'm doing now, without all the tedious link following that you'd have to do from my main site, go to Plastic Squirrel's Tunes page and be unamazed, or amazed, you never know!

That's pretty much it for now!

Anyhow, that's all I can think of, except to say that I don't need to get any wolves off anybody as I already have one here (well, a German Shepard-Labrador cross, but it's close) The legendary nearlywolf, Rambo, who says hi. So there you go, see you around. Will put some more stuff here, like links etc when I get round to it. Oh, if you get the time, feel free to give me a welcome break in the Spam by e-mailing me at [email protected] If you need to know more then visit Squirrelworld Where you can listen to my music, read my rantings and ravings, and look at my stuff. No pics of me cos I refuse to put them anywhere (don't want to scare any kids out there).

Handy gadget, use it
