    The Rob Noxious 'Me, Myself & I' Thread

    Greetings to all my fans, friends and associates on ShrimperZone, old and new - and those yet to be discovered. I thought that it might help your ease of reference to know what great things I'm up to if I plonked the relevant information here on this new 'Me, Myself and I' thread. It's my...
  2. Funny

    I'm a huge fan of Phil Cornwall the comedian and as most of you know he's a big Spurs fan. He hosts a podcast called 'The Spurs Show'. I listen to it as its funny and he takes the **** out of everybody, even Spurs. Well over the years, at the beginning of the show, he takes the rise out of...

    Cars you had that should have been s**t

    So following on from the S**t cars you had thread, I thought I'd go the other way and talk about cars you thought would be s**t but weren't I had a Fiat 131 Mirafiori 1600CL. Had a chipped piston that knocked like crazy and should have died a death but it took me everywhere, even to Cornwall...

    Did I Spot Our Man In Penzance

    For the last two weeks I have been lurking in Cornwall with the wife and kids. Now for someone who has been going down that neck of the woods for 30+ years you might have thought I would have pretty much covered the lot but nope, I doubt I have even scratched the surface. One of the places I...

    Question Devon / Cornwall

    Hello all, We have a holiday booked to Spain for the early summer (June) but thinking I might fancy a long weekend in Devon/Cornwall with the wife/kids in August sort of time. We went to Croyde a few years ago and I have been to Newquay a few times. Just wondered if anyone else can recommend...

    A Walk Down Memory Lane

    The 'Origin of The Pak' thread got me a thinking about some of the places and names of my 15 to 21 year old days I haven't heard about in years. 1. Leigh Comm. Many a running battle with rival 'gangs of Southend' started from there. 2. Listening & laughing to Phil Cornwall's impromptu...

    The Original Rude Boy

    "It's a bit like what Charlie Watts said about the Stones ... five years playing, twenty years waiting around." Sir Buttz Yoddles spoke wearily as he was in discomfort from a horrific abscess for which he had just started taking analgesic medication. His weariness was not helped by the...

    My fellow Shrimpers ... please forgive me for not keeping you in touch with developments out west as much as I used to. Ever since my radio show has taken off - I think we now have 29 listeners if I include people's pets - I've not been able to devote as much time to you as I would like...

    Hi guy`s ! I have been exiled in cornwall for the last 26 years, although i now only get to see one or two matches a season. I still have strong Essex contacts who are blues followers, so i get plenty of info and feedback on whats rumoured to be going on around the club. Do you guy`s think...
  11. Hi to all from Cornwall

    Hi to all. Phil the Cornish shrimper here. Spoke to Rob at yesterdays Argyle game and he mentioned this forum. Good to see the Blues agiain despite the last 5 minutes. I dont get to see them very often due to my location. It just makes the occasion that little bit special each time. Both my...

    Congrats to the Camerons!

    Congrats to the PM and Samantha Cameron on the arrival of their baby girl, born while the family were on holiday in Cornwall. Not sure if she's been named yet, but she weighed in at 6lbs 1oz.

    World Cup Diaries - your 'almost live' blogs

    'This is it!' - proclaimed Melba Moore on a joyous little single of yesteryear. I'm feeling upbeat that the World Cup opening day has finally arrived. Just got a bit of work to do this morning before I'm off for three glorious weeks of World Cup fever. I'd like to start a ShrimperZone World Cup...

    "Radio Radio!" (A Musical Memoir)

    Please bear with me once more good people of ShrimperZone. I'm stuck up here in the attic 'on call' awaiting (but hoping not to receive) the calls of the needy and distressed of West Cornwall. Some of you know that I was inspired by a thread on 'The Writers Bureau' and Slipperduke's ShrimperZone...

    On The Road Again

    Every now and then I leave my 'Celtic enclave' in the wild west of Cornwall to support my/our team. I don't get out enough but when I do I try to make the most of it. Following the great stories brought to us by 'Dad of Dave the Shrimper' in his 'My Life As A Shrimper,' I wondered about...

    Question Relive the best week of your life again

    If you had the opportunity to relive a week from your past what week would it be and why. When asked, I considered many options including the week my son was born, the week I got married, various Southend United experiences from Benji at Bury to Man U and Chelsea. But for some reason I...

    Record Shops I Have Loved

    This was meant to go in another thread which is closed for a few more hours, but seeing that this is ready for 'release,' I just wanted to get it 'out there' for the record-buying public of ShrimperZone. This one's a tribute to 'Carmel Records'... "Van Morrison once said that Jackie Wilson...

    Question What are you reading?

    Perhaps not quite as Facebook friendly as what music are you listening to but I imagine a few Zoners might be interested to know what their fellow Shrimpers are currently reading. To get the ball rolling I'm presently enjoying Ian Sinclair's mammoth "Hackney,That Rose-Red Empire". It's an...
