My name is Pete Callard but you might know me as The gobby bloke on social media. I was born in Portsmouth and grew up in Portsmouth. When I was a child my idol was my mother, because she’s solid! You don’t mess with Jackie.. When I was 15, I started working in the commercial fishing industry. It was then when I realised that I need to get a new direction in life, that doesn’t make you smell, mainly so I’d become more attractive to the ladies and decided to have a proper good wash, leave the fish behind and pick up my headphones and hammer and chisel. Since then I’m very active on music and carpentry, 2 things I’m very passionate about, give me a club made out of seasoned timber and i’d be in my element.
One of the best gigs I played was Club da da at Bestival 2012. It was so much fun – Tent was packed to the rafters and the crowd was well up for it! I could of played anything.
One of the best gigs I have been to was Tame impala, Alexandra palace. I loved sharing my uber with a cross dresser.
Now I live in Portsmouth with a very old border terrier called Billy. In my house you can find lots of info on cross channel ferries, ferry spotter and my refrigerator is usually full with unrecognisable Out of date veg 😩. I enjoy finding the iPad charger for my kids and photoshopping Jon gurds head on to explicit images a lot. I can spend hours watching animal attacks on human is YouTube. One of my favorite places to visit is Barcelona, because it’s one of the best vibes and I love dodging idiots on segways.
On weekdays I make stuff from wood and on weekends I usually sit on my ass scrolling through social media correcting people’s spelling mistakes.
My favorite song at the moment is Great gig in the sky – Pink Floyd. A film I watched lately and really liked was jaws 1,2 and 3. Pure class. The last series I watched and loved was…I don’t really watch tv, but did breaking bad, I’m currently on the look out for a motor home and a large plastic container.
I am very inspired by David von day. My dream is to build my own house out of Lego. My worst nightmare is having a girlfriend that loved maroon 5.
I love enthusiastic people and hate Mazda mx5’s. I am addicted to English mustard, I just cannot stop taking the piss.
I get totally fucked up, when I visit my local pub. The next day I need to avoid contact with the outside world, unless they’re delivering fast food..
Local Suicide reminds me of the profile pic on their Facebook.
Tomorrow I I’m going to try to avoid the snooze button. Next month I will start of a new tax year 😩. Next year I will be 36 and hopefully my receding hairline will slow down a bit. In 10 years I hope that my ford transit is still running.
If I wasn’t a piss taker, I would be a popular guy.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, Fuck that! I couldn’t let my kids watch. would have the main role, because David Brent, he’s class. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be anything goes.
If I was a car, I would be a chitty chitty bang bang. If I was an animal, I would be an orca, not in captivity though, not up for that.. If I was a drug I would be Valium. If I was an invention, I would be a time machine with decent leg room. If I was an object, I would be a boat/ submarine. If I could date myself, I would tell myself to shut up and iron my clothes better.
If I could play with anyone it would be Erol Alkan. I would like to collaborate with The Hacker.
If I had only one wish, it would be to live in a world with no reality tv shows.
I would never jump in my kids bath water, because you never know what the little bastards have done in there.
My word of advice to the reader would be: dont be a sheep.
