As regular readers of The Arena will know, it's not often that your humble host receives a correspondence that doesn't involve death/legal threats or just general abuse and those of you with long memories and short fuses will probably still have a warm fuzzy feeling whenever 'Megan' is mentioned.
Indeed I still get scarily threatening emails to this day regarding her whereabouts.
So you can imagine my surprise when an email from the lovely Alex from the even lovelier Man Crates: Gifts for Men arrived inviting me to put together a four item horror survival crate of my own I couldn't resist.
Especially seeing as they still have the negatives from my last gig at Amanda Bynes birthday party.
More challenging than that tho' was the thought of a designing a horror crate specifically aimed at helping me survive on my home turf.
Yup, no guns and the like here, you see I'm in 'sunny' Scotland, birthplace of such terrors as the Loch Ness Monster, cannibal king Sawney Bean, John Barrowman and The Wicker Man.
And like them my kit was going to have to be durable, waterproof and look good in Tartan.
|It's a crate! For a man! It's a Man Crate!|
|Well if it's good enough for George Lazenby...|
|Made in Scotland from girders. Allegedly.|
|"Call that a knife?"|
|OK, maybe not this big. Tho' it may be that the people featured are very tiny.|
