    The Southend Pound

    Question When and what made you sign up to ShrimperZone?

    After digging out some old posts from yesteryear, got me thinking about the all these posters who seem to be part of the furniture now but were no where to be seen back then. I think it would be good to see what drove us to join and when. My own story is that I used to frequent Shrimpers.Net...

    Song title game

    Here I am sitting with Shrimpero and I've introduced him to the game we play during gigs with my band (when we are setting up or sitting around waiting to play). Basically you have to contrive a song title around a subject to make it funny (or at least mildly amusing). So, for instance, if the...

Imagine you are good friends with a number of people, for this story, we'll call them, imaginary names, like Bambi, MrB, Scrounger, Chadded (apparantly, this...

    SZ Novella - Chapter Five

    Chapter Five - Red Sky At Night, Stokes' Delight Ricey sprinted down the back-alley, feet slipping and sliding on the wet concrete as he went. The sound of a gunshot echoed off the walls and he instinctively ducked, almost falling to the ground. Reaching the end of the passageway, he turned...
