How do I look?
In a typical Life of Brian moment, I heared someone say ” Whats so good about it?” Which is a fair question, I mean its meant to be the day that Jesus Christ, our so called Lord and Saviour was murdered for daring to suggest that people don’t treat each other like crap. So with that in mind, maybe it should be called “Awful Friday” or “Really Pretty Shit Friday”.
Bearing that in mind, some sources actually suggest that it isn’t actually Good Friday at all, this is just a natural mutation of God’s Friday. Other sources claim that good is a greeting meaning holy, in the way that people say “goodtide” at Christmas. According to the Baltimore Catechism which was one of the most Catholic school texts in the US up until the 1960s, Good Friday is good because Christ “showed His great love for man, and purchased for him every blessing” which is certainly a nice thought.
But I think that it really is one of those mysteries that is lost to time.
some 1980 years ago Jesus sat down for a meal with some of his buddies, I wonder what they actually ate, and Jesus knowing it was to be his last meal, what do you think he ordered, do you think he just went for some water?
Jesus was meant to have been crucified on the Friday, and then slept it off for a day and then woke up at some point on the Sunday, am I right? Apparently not? What blasphemy is this you say? Well its the blasphemy of the gospel according to Matthew (Chapter 12 verses 38-40)
“38 Then certain of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying, Teacher, we would see a sign from thee. 39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet: 40 for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
So if we assume that Jesus did actually arise from the tomb on the Sunday, that would mean that he was in there all day and night Saturday, Friday and Thursday? Which Means that Jesus would have had to have been crucified on the Wednesday. Which also means that, had they existed then, the 12 disciples could have gone to Wetherspoon’s for a Steak Club as the last supper. ?
Tonight in my dual role as a member of Cwmbran Council, and Consort to the Mayor of Torfaen I attended Cwmbran Council’s Primary Schools Choral Festival
It was a lovely evening, and all the children taking part did really well, I know how nerve wracking it can be to get up in front of a whole room full of adults, and I’m almost thirty, so it must be even more difficult for the under 11’s that make up Cwmbran’s Primary Schools.
I seem to have picked up some disgusting bug, ah well, such is life. But it does mean that I’m going to be taking things easy today, so no exciting new Pulitzer worthy media creation today… Just like every other day really.

Today I attended the opening of the Generation Games Exhibit at Pontypool Museum.
The exhibit features every games console released in the UK from the early 1970’s until the present day, and is a fantastic exhibit that as many people as possible should attend, if only to relive their child hoods.
I still cant believe how difficult some of the old games were (I swear I was never that bad at Super Mario World). It was also really cool to see how gaming has evolved from the 1970’s and 80’s, right through my childhood to the current day.
The opening itself was very well attended by a whole host of civic dignitaries, including the Minister For Culture. But I’m serious if you get the chance head to Pontypool Museum to check this exhibit out.
This was something that I wasn’t a hundred percent sure of until I actually started wearing a cravat on a regular basis.
I will point out that it helps (and also looks pretty cool) if you use some form of stick pin to hold the cravat in place, and also to add that little touch of decoration that a plain solid colour cravat may desperately need.
