So what’s all this about then?
This site is split into the following sections:
This is the mini-site for the Beat Motel Podcast, which is a podcast about music. There is also general information about the podcast, as well as show notes and contact details.

Veloballs is a cycling site that I ran for several years. It’s not updated as often as it used to be but still contains a lot of decent information and interesting articles about cycling, bike gear and some other odd stuff.
Go to the VeloBalls section
This section of the lawsie website contains information about, and links to, all the creative activities I get up to, including my musical projects, bands I’m in (and have played with in the past) and my creative writing.
Go to the Andrew Culture section
There are loads of other sections that act as an archive of older bits and bobs I’ve created, have a look at the footer of the site for links to those sections.
A more detailed introduction to lawsie.com
The lawsie website was originally born as lawsie.co.uk sometime around 1998 (I think). It started life as a portal and search engine. But then some lads in California invented something called Google and I figured they did a better job of it than I did, so I sat back and let the site rot for a bit.
Eventually, blogging became something that anyone could do without having first to build their own CMS, so I started up lawsie.com as a blog. It lived on blogger.com until February 2023, when I migrated to WordPress.
I have been building websites for fun and profit since 1998, and in that time many websites have come and gone. The Lawsie website exists as a long-term record of the stuff that I have done over the years. This means that some of the content on this site is badly written and may well state an opinion that I haven’t held for decades.
What do the categories in the footer mean?
At the time I transferred the content from Blogger to the site as you see it now there were nearly 500 posts, and none of them were categorised. So assigning categories was a helluva task, so I made it as simple as possible. Most posts are in the ‘observations’ category, partly because they don’t fit in any other category, but also because we all live through observations, so it’s a good catch-all category.
With that out of the way, crack on, and have a rummage.
