About Me

The Life of Major Mad Mike

The nickname “Major” has stuck with me since childhood, being tall for my age and now at 6ft 7 I ran though my school days strictly by the book…believe when I say this did not sit well with my fellow peers and I often had to endure ridicule and hardship.

The term “Major Mad Mike” was given to me mainly because of my anger…because I could not get away from the bullying, the teachers failing to step in and help I bottled my emotions till I exploded, my peers saw this as a weakness and redoubled their effort to get a rise out of me.

It was not until collage that someone described me as “a passionate soul of the sea, quick to anger but soothing to others if needed”, I came to the strange truth that I have always been a passionate man who very much wears his heart on his sleeve, my emotions on display fall all to see even if I did not see it.

With pride I can feel ten feet tall, with sorrow I can die a thousand times a day, with love I can fly though the heavens but it is with anger I am a war machine and very much my own worst enemy, thanks to my school days, friendships and trust I hold in high esteem, easily attained from me but once lost is almost impossible to get back, I will and have held grudges to this day something I can lay blame at the feet of my peers.

I have had trouble settling in one place,due to circumstances, moving constantly I have lived in the heart of towns, been in the remote, isolated countryside and some spots in between, I have lived in some rough areas and in some of the most beautiful and the sights I have seen has only fuelled my dream.

A writer and photographer hobbyist I have been for a long time, a dream to go professional in both I have held since I was a small lad, to have my own business in the latter of the two is slowly becoming a reality, with help from a genius, my friend “G” who should have his own knighthood with half the stuff he can do with a computer I now have a website I will soon sell my images from www.majorimago.co.uk .

With two websites, writing short stories and poems any type of writing is almost a full time thing but to get out of the house for photography is sometimes hard to accomplish, this is why I am so fond of autumn, on the rainy days (which let’s face…in the UK…it is a lot) I concentrate on the my writings and on the sparse sunny days I venture out in the hope of stumbling onto a beautiful image, places I have spotted unsuitable for normal photo shot’s will look wonderful covered in snow and is the main reason I look forward to winter.

All that I have said are the main reasons for the names of my websites Major Madness and Major Imago, it is my attempt to take something negative from my past and turn into a positive and it is something I will see though to the end.

I am MajorMadMike and I run MajorMadness.co.uk and MajorImago.co.uk and despite my past I am Living my dream!

A…B…C…hallenge…

A while back I posted about my friends A.B.C concept from her website, about picking twenty-six things (one per letter) that’s important to you…

Well I was speaking to another friend of mine and we started talking about this website and he mentioned the blog with reference to the A.B.C idea…

He tells me it’s a brilliant concept that came from my friend, the idea he thinks everyone should adopt and then proceeds to challenge me to make my own for this site…

So as I am not really one to turn down a challenge, I give unending credit to my friend Amber on the idea and I say I accept the challenge…
A… Animals…

DP0009Tiger-Posters
I am a major fan of pets and wild animals, tigers and wolfs are my favorite in the wild while the cat would be my choice of pet…

B…Books…

library-1024x691
I am a huge bookworm it has to be said, sadly most are packed due to lack of shelf space but by favorites have to be The Assassins Creed series and the series by David Eddings likes in which include The Diamond Throne, all the way to The Hidden City…

C…Comedy…

logo_ComedyZone
I am a fan of standup comedy, my favorites go from Billy Connolly to Chris Rock, from Jimmy Carr to Alan Carr and most recently John Pinette all are outstanding and even though I have been to see Alan Carr live, if ever I got chance I would go see every one of them…

D…Drink…

gm-diet-alcohol
Now while I usually only drink if the occasion calls for it, if I do treat myself to a bottle my favorites are Lamb’s Rum, Morgan Spice, Jim Bean, Jack Daniels or Red Stag, mostly bourbon but most I was raised on…

E…Extraterrestrial Life…

© Copyright 2010 CorbisCorporation
I firmly believe that we are not alone in the universe, it too big, there has to be something but unlike the rest of the crazies I don’t think whoever’s out there would disturb the locals here on earth, E.T will not be visiting for supper people have no fear…

F…Food…

recipe-image-legacy-id--11679_12
Now I will admit I do like my food, whilst I am enjoying making deserts and all, Curry is my favorite dish, I love having veg but I can promise nothing beats my Mother’s home made Lasagna…

G…Gravity…or at least the man behind the theory…

newton
If there is one man I would love to go back in time and meet it would be Sir Isaac Newton… he was an English physicist and mathematician who is recognized as one of the most brilliant and influential genius of his or any other time…

H…Hikes…

hiking-page_12
When the weather is nice I do love a good walk through the woods or even up to seven stanes bike trail were some of the views are breath taking even though I am now down south and in a town there still are beautiful sights to find…

I…Internet…

index
I do browse most of my time from working on my websites to catching up with the WWE, perhaps I spend too much time it has to be said online when I can and should be doing other things…

J…Justice…

oldbaileyjustice
I am a big believer that you commit a crime, you should pay the price, that you deliberately end a life your own is forfeit but you harm a child and you suffer before you you’re dealt with…
Justice has become a joke in this day and age, prison has become a waffle house holiday camp compared to what it should be…
K…Kids…

oasis-kids-logo
I think kids are great though I doubt I will have any of my own I think all kids should just be loved and protected, they are the building blocks of the future, with such potential, it is shame all do not think so…

L…Learning…

organize-an-offline-class-with-skillshare-c84d534271
Thanks to learning the teachings of Eddie Briggs I am now SIA trained but in life we must continue to learn from others and their experiences, from our own victories and more importantly from our own failures, this allows us to strive to be better than we are and allows us to help others when the need arrives…

M…Music…

music-notes-piano-wallpapers
Now I am not one that has a favorite band or type of music but prefer songs with a good beat to them like Linkin Park “Skin to Bone” or “Castle of Glass” or “Beautiful Liar” by Beyonce & Shakira. I do also like classical music such as “Concierto De Aranjuez” which is simply my favorite and a beautiful piece…

N…Nephew & Nieces

7214173_f520
I have had many titles in my life, MajorMadMike through school, high tower in collage, tall, lanky, BFG, skyscraper but with all my nephews and nieces my favorite title is that of Uncle…

O…Online Gaming…

online-gaming-logo
While I am no fan of playing online games for profit I do enjoy playing for recreation, for fun, everything from Storm fall: face of war to forge of empires and they say war is not therapeutic…

P…Photography…

NewNXRange-1024x591
I am avid photographer when the weather is nice and it sometimes surprises me where one can find beauty in a world of death and war, it is my hope to turn my passion into self-employment in the near future…

Q…Quietness…

quiet_zone_1024x1024
Yes…as much as I like to listen to the tunes and such, I do like some peace and quiet, granted I don’t get too much of it with my nephew around but it is the price I pay for being an Uncle

R…Romance…

real-feel-of-love-romance-5
There is nothing I love more than when there’s romance in the air, when I look and see young love blossoming all year round… Sadly I will never find love again, I had that once and I was rejected after five years…But it always seems to cheer me up when I see that someone’s respective partner becomes their entire world and I really hope everyone can find that…

S…Sport…

sports balls
Now I have been told I am sad act for watching sport but if that’s true I have millions of sad acts brothers and sisters that love sport as much as I do, from football to ruby, tennis to the Olympics…there’s just never enough hours to watch it all…

T…T.V…

my-all-time-favorite-tv-shows
I do like to sit down and watch T.V for the episodes of Castle, NCIS both Original and the Los Angeles spin off and of course the Highlander series…

U…Universal Law…

circle-of-blue-light-around-the-earth-space-hd-wallpaper-1920x1080-9141
While we have many rules that divide us, from country to religion we all must follow a universal law we cannot escape…everyone dies…so why can’t we all get a little common sense going and stop trying to kill each other…wouldn’t it be nice… just for a change

V…Voice…

voce_logo
There is nothing more powerful or beautiful then the human voice when singing, whether it is in a choir or front and center standing alone, from Soprano to Contra Alto, from Tenor to Bass, when used right it can bring anyone to tears…

 

W…Writing…

quill-and-parchment1
Another passion of mine is short stories and poems and whilst I find my time to do such gets limited daily I do want to try my hand at a novel…but again time is a factor and it will take me years to do…

X…Xbox360…

xbox_360_black_by_donycorreia-d4bf582
This is my relaxation time, favorites include the Batman series not to forget the Call of Duty: modern warfare and Mirror’s Edge, I don’t get to play as often as I did but when I do I try to have a cold beer with it…

Y…You Tube…

Youtube-Logo-1050x3360
I have to admit I am hooked on this website, mainly for the walkthroughs to new games coming out on the consoles and I am now uploading my own walkthrough videos and of course I do listen to music videos for what seems like hours…

Z… ZZZzzzzzz…

zzzzzz-keep-calm-i-am-sleeping
Now this, many would say is an easy choice but to be truthful I am what you call a night owl, my sleep pattern is completely screwed up, and it has been since my childhood…
Every minute of sleep I get is a bonus I should really get into a routine but it is difficult for me, my mind does not settle at any hour…
It is usually being exhausted that I finally get any shut eye and I fear it is something not easily changed…

thank-you
So that’s my response to the challenge laid before me, my own A, B, C list that I will post in its own post and on the about me page just to be nice.

I will admit doing this list was harder than expected and took me a little longer than planned but I got through to the end later than I would have liked but hay ho…

Thank you all for you visiting taking time out to read what was a 25 page word document…

And since someone was nice enough to do this to me allow me to return the favor and say if you own any type of website and have an about me page then…yes you guessed it…I challenge you to make your own list…

Have Fun!!!!!
