Who Is AjaxPost Plays?

So, Who Am I?

Hi, my name is Adrian, and back at the end of 2015 I created a YouTube channel to share my Sims 3 Lets Plays.

To keep things 'simple' I used my Sims 3 ID 'ajaxpost'* and initially named my channel after my Sims alter-ego, Adam Slade. It sorta makes sense if you don't think about it too hard!

However, having discovered I rather enjoyed creating videos for YouTube I added more games to the channel and in 2019, realising that The Sims 3 content had become a small part of what I was uploading, I dropped the Adam Slade and became just "Ajaxpost Plays". 😄

Beyond the PC games I'm also a great fan of theatre, real ale, and 'old' music that I remember from my youth (check out my theatre and music playlists for some of my favourites). So this blog is likely to contain references to new YouTube content that I upload, beery stuff and some of the theatre I see.

You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, and various Discord servers (where my ID is just 'Ajax').

I also have a Tumblr and used to hang out on the Sims forums but, sadly, don't visit those places much these days.😢

If you fancy saying "hi" in any of these other places, just use the links in the sidebar.

* Why 'Ajaxpost'? 

Many (many, many) years ago when I was a kid for a while my nickname at school was 'Ajax' - possibly inspired by the cleaning product that was widely advertised at the time.

Then many, many, years later when I started to hang out on the Internet and didn't want to use my real name I remembered that nickname so I called myself "Ajax" instead. Not sure why I added 'post' but I started to use it quite frequently and especially on forums like that for The Sims 3. Consequently, when I eventually started creating content, mostly for TS3, I just carried on using my forum ID, "Ajaxpost". Et voilà!

On This Day: 10th May

Suspenders at the ready on this day Before The Lockdown: in 2003 Oh dear, this is rather embarrassing! I loved the film, it's iconic and a standard reference point for all of us who do not believe in conformity. Yet. I've only seen the stage show, on which the film was based, once. What is even worse is that I remember so very little of the Rocky Horror Show when I did get to see at the Wimbledon Theatre in London! It must have been fun, how could it not be? But no, I recall nothing. 😢 For some reason, I do not have a programme for this show, and I am almost fanatical in getting programmes! so the image here is one I have found on the Internet and, as far as I can tell, is correct for this particular tour An interesting side-note to this is that when searching for that image I discovered that at the time this show was running Wimbledon Theatre was in severe financial difficulties and did, in fact close for several months until it was rescued by the Ambassador Thea

On This Day: 25th May

It's time, once again, for the amateurs on this day Before The Lockdown: in 2018 Having seen quite a few amateur productions in Bath and Bristol, by both community groups and also theatre students in training, I thought it time to check out what London might be able to offer. The community based Putney Theatre Company at the Putney Arts Theatre created an evening devoted to new writing in a showcase of seven short pieces produced and performed by the PTC. Under the umbrella title of Fate Expectations each piece offered a moment in time, either realistic or fantastical, where everything could change. in 2019 The last of this year's Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Directors' Cuts season at the Wardrobe Theatre was How My Light Is Spent . A surreal tale of how one man's life literally starts to disappear. Having lost a 'proper job' and then been replaced by a coin-bin at a zero-hours fast-food joint his disappearing prospects become a physical reality
