About mikescantlebury

There's only one word I can use to describe myself - but I haven't found it yet, so when I do, I'll let you know. It could be a cross between 'falsetto' and 'West Country', but I don't think that's been invented yet. When it is, I'll put it on the front page of all of my books, of which there are many. You can find me, smiling away, on Amazon and Kindle, which is odd, because most of my novels are Crime Thrillers, complete with big bangs, guns, car chases, brazen hussies and ice cream. I mean, it's not even as though I have a sense of humour. That would be too much to expect, from a man born in Bristol and raised in the clarity of a 60-watt light bulb. Don't expect me to say a word about vampires, or horses, come to that: I was born near to a farm, but had to shout, to get the horses to hear me. That's another field entirely.

Halo? Hello !

It’s floating in the sky. It’s obviously an Alien (or maybe Allen)

I don’t believe in UFO’s. Well, at least, I didn’t, until this strange object appeared in the sky and followed me around, from pillar to post and gateway to attic. Haunted? I should be so lucky. If I’m ever haunted it won’t be by someone I know. It will be the Taxman

Salford Uni – home

Who is this man? He’s such a rebel !

Salford University? I suppose you could call it my Alma Mater. (One of them.)

I graduated from here in 2002 with an M Phil degree and I’ve never looked back.

(Of course, if I had looked back, in the photo above, I would have seen the Salford Museum and Art Gallery, one of Salford’s great places for a cup of frothy coffee.)

Cartoons

Video

Jane and Mike from Mike Scantlebury on Vimeo.

Jane and Mike are At Home today. They are having an interesting chat. Jane isn’t happy. Look at Jane. Jane is shouting. She feels like she’s drowning

(A video? Yippee, I luv toons! Right, well, be sensible. All you have to do is click the first bit of the blue line and away you go. Awayyyyy – actually you get linked to Vimeo.com, where Mike has a table top full of short films. Check out the Oscars! (Well, not Oscar but Mike once had a dog called Buzz and a goldfish called Archie. Oscar? Archie? So close!)

No, you don’t !

Ouch, Mike’s getting philosophical.

The thing is this: we live in a modern world, and have access to the greatest store of facts ever made available to humankind. So, we all know everything, right?

Mike says No. He brings up a simple point to get started, and yes, his argument makes sense. It’s a video, shot in the upstairs room of Ordsall Community Cafe. But you already knew that, right? No? Well maybe Mike is right in what he says. You try it and see. Click on the link and away you go. It’s Philosophy Major down there in Ordsall.

Okay, guys. Click away

If it’s not ‘over’, then it’s ‘under’


“Over and Under” is a song from the skies (or beneath the ground). Either way, it’s probably new to you. Give it a try (from your seat, or from that hole in the ground you are in the process of digging for yourself).

Mercury – Part 2 of the scandal

Video

Mercury amalgam fillings 2 – “The Inner City”. Latest chapter that is the scandal of mercury fillings, the stuff that Britons don’t want to live without, but the rest of the world gave up long ago. Why? Why do we have such faith in the metal in our mouths? Nobody told you that mercury is – well, you wouldn’t believe it anyway.
