Twilight Zone

Way back in August 2005, I started a blog under the pseudonym ‘Norman Brightside’, the rationale for which is described here.

I am a keen fan of football and bore people incessantly about the subject.

In August 2011, I was diagnosed with bowel cancer.

There is a UK bowel cancer charity support site, supported by various footballers, called ‘Know The Score‘ which includes and supports the ‘Mr. Brightside project‘.

Cue twilight zone music.

[ Sadly, the derivation of the Mr. Brightside project name is inevitably sad and involves the premature death of a young man who liked The Killers so don’t feel obliged to go and read about that. ]
