    Synopsis
    This publication portrays the life of John "Gaffer" Rollinson, one of the most dangerous men in the country. He has made the villains' Hall of Fame through a lifetime of unmitigated violence, driven by a fearsome rage that has seen him become a guest of Her Majesty's prisons on half a dozen occasions. Rollinson could have been a boxer, but he was booted out of the sport as a teenager because his wild rages made him unfit to fight under the Queensberry rules and he was deemed an unacceptable risk even in the most violent of sports. So he became a barber, but his cut-throat razor was soon put to a bloodier use as he carved a notorious reputation for himself thoughout the clubland and debt collection circuit. Yet despite his appalling record of violence, Gaffer is not a man without compassion: ask the teenage drug addict he picked up off the street and on whom he spent thousands of pounds in a drug rehabilitation clinic; or the neighbours whose mortgage he paid for six months to prevent them from being evicted. Gaffer is a character people love or hate; there is no in-between.

    6ft, yeah why not. But then again, nothing's wrong with "expanding your horizons."
    And kyza-my goodness.


    I need to go to the library. They always have the old stuff that book stores don't have.

    Behold a Pale Horse by William Cooper

    This is a book that every free-thinking American should read - but be prepared to have your mind fucked up. It will challenge everything you thought you believed in.

    Don't blow it off as another one of those "conspiracy theory" books until you read it and do your research, if you're so inclined...

    I just got The Writer's Handbook 2005 (kinda late but) and for anybody wanting to take it to the next level should pick this up. I also got The Best Poems of The English Language by Harold Bloom, trying to educate myself and learn more about some things.
