As Paul McCartney once said, hello, goodbye.


Categories: Blog, news, twitter

Dear Twitter friends,

As Paul McCartney once said, hello, goodbye.

Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. Truth is, I’ve decided to give Twitter a break for the time being. If you’re reading this, you may be looking for an explanation as to why, so here it is.

I haven’t been enjoying it for a while now. There hasn’t been a specific incident and the reasons are various. Ultimately, I think we’ve just grown apart. What I’m saying is, it’s not you, it’s me.

To those of you, who have regularly sent me messages and supported me, I say thank you and please be in no doubt you are appreciated and valued. Your creativity, passion and positivity is always inspiring.

In the meantime, I’m going to concentrate on the real world and keep working hard. There’s a lot of really fun stuff coming up and there is still every chance you will be sick of me, in no time at all.

Presently, the account will reactivate and Harmony Carrigan aka @MyDogAteLA will head up an official team to run it as an offshoot of the long running Peggster website, which is 10 years old this year. If you’re interested in news from the Pegg camp and information regarding the various charities I support, then don’t touch that dial. It will however, no longer be my own voice.

Take care Tweeple and remember to use your powers for good.

Love from

Simon x

P.S. The Star Wars trailer is fucking AWESOME, right?!!!!!!

The Disney Channel’s long-running ‘Phineas and Ferb’ has managed some impressive guest stars and tribute episodes in recent years, but its latest get is a slice of fried gold.

“I think we all mistake certain things for happiness,” explains the actor. “I think we mistake comfort for happiness and we mistake pleasure for happiness, and entertainment for happiness, when really these are just things we use as proxies for our happiness.

“We use them to cheer us up or try and achieve brief happiness, when really happiness is something much more profound and long lasting and exists within us.” — Simon Pegg

The uplifting story follows Hector (Simon Pegg) and his quest to find out whether happiness truly exists. It starts with Hector feeling trapped with his mundane daily routine and his neurotic girlfriend Clara (Rosamund Pike), so he decides to break away from his sheltered London life and go on a global quest to find out whether happiness truly exists.

Will he end up happy? We suspect so, but we’ll have to wait until August to find out.
