Who is Glynsky?

Aha -you expect to find some information about me, Glynsky, here.
But I decided to write something about Pete, my partner in crime, instead.

So, what is it like to be Pete.
Well, to sum up in a few words:

  • angst ridden,
  • playwright and pantomime producer (a little to keen on the ‘Dames’ sometimes),
  • a feminine side.

Big on Coy Carp, Flora and Fauna, Music, Antiques and old stuff in general and the main supplier to the UK of Lara Croft lifesize models.

He has an amazing talent to take brilliant photos without cutting off the head – or feet for that matter! People flock to his door to record their images for their posteriors.

Thinks of himself as the Harrison Marks of recent years, but uses the airbrush in the wrong places. However, Health and Efficiency was a good reference point, and his contributions to Readers Wives will go down.

Hopeless romantic, but hasn’t a clue who the ‘New’ ones are (mixes up Gabrielle Rossini with the lead singer in Spandau Ballet).

Is a punk (as defined by Dirty Harry) and can get the most out of a Stanley Steamer, but with no clue on cars other than they have back seats, with which he is intimately concerned, though he can’t find many that recline to make his research easier.

Is he amazing – yes.

Does he rock – only after Famous Grouse.

Can he whinge – in spades.

Is he cool – always leaves the front windows open in case any one in the car park bores of dogging and wants to record his seat research.

He is able to spin his silver web around any folorn maiden (or maid for that matter – age means nothing to him) and leave her dizzy, panting and bored.

Would you (or I ) like to be him, mmmm – naaaaaaah!

Who is Pete?

Instead of writing about myself, Pete, let me tell you about Glynsky.

My co writer, Glynsky, is a man of many parts. But only a few are still working.
However, I hope you will soon realize, just how talented this man used to be, and on very rare occasions still is.

There is no room on any blog to sum up Glynsky’s remarkable CV.

Apart from some of his other talents listed below, Glynsky has worked for his own Company for the last 74 years.

He somehow managed to get himself fired in a boardroom coup recently, which took some talent, as he was the only Director of the firm. Perhaps his main mistake was voting against himself.

Still his loss is our gain and he now finds time to develop his other talents, as soon as he can find any.

His previous experience included failure as a racing driver on the little known formula 18 circuit, as well as a brief but lucrative career as a part time mud wrestler and DJ.

His knowledge of 50’s and 60’s music is second to none, or so he tells me, and he devotes what spare time he now has to breeding ostriches from chicken eggs with as yet little success.

Glynsky is a keen classic car enthusiast and currently owns a small fleet of classic Alfa Romeos.
Unfortunately a bit like Glynsky himself, most of them are in pieces.

Finally I should say something, that may actually impress you all about this man. He is in fact a direct descendant of Italian aristocracy.

His great great grandfather was thrown out of the mafia for cowardice, but the family continued to flourish until Glynsky arrived.

However he has maintained his high ranking Italian heritage with frequent trips to pizza restaurants and ice cream parlours.

I could go on, but to sum things up for the moment I can safely say:
This man is a Count….

1st time here?

Dear Reader,

This is the first post
And much to everyone’s disappointment, it comes from the Engine Room.

Well, I am setting the stage for Glynsky and Pete, so to speak. They thought that they deserved an introduction. And since no one else volunteered, it fell onto me. So this is what they, and unfortunately you too, are getting.

Who am I?
The guy in the engine room, running the technicalities of the diablog. A guy, whom no one ever notices, pale, skinny, bags under his eyes, over worked, under paid. Just think of Johann in “Das Boot”. Yep, below, that’s him:


In other words, I am the least qualified person for this job. (The first sentence of this post did make that painfully obvious, didn’t it?) But, if you ever have a question about features or technical issues, send an email to:

EngineRoom |at| GlynskyAndPete |dot| com

And what is this diablog?
The diablog is Glynsky’s and Pete’s stage. Let me quote a little bit from Q&A:

The diablog is the mix of blog and dialog. Glynsky and Pete are having conversations, sometimes disputes, about stuff they know. Guy things, the good stuff in life. Like music, classic cars, movies, wine, food, traveling, etc.

And they let you listen in. Or better read in. And since it is a diablog, you may participate.

Who are Glynsky and Pete?
First of all, the guys in the front page picture are NOT
Glynsky and Pete. But one of them shot it.

Both have their own introduction pages, see here and here.

So, if they have introduction pages, why do you have to write an introduction?
Thanks, my words exactly, when I was asked to write this. But have you ever heard of or even experienced a boss listening to the guy in the engine room? See? Same thing here.

A few last words of caution:
The diablog contains humor, irony and sometimes even sarcasm. And we do not always add a smiley or LoL or other obvious hints to those posts. We believe in intelligent conversations, where the participants use their brain and think.
If you cannot stand this kind of writing or are easily offended, you might want to take the liberty to read something else.
If, on the other hand you appreciate it, let us know and participate!

Now, without further ado,

ladies and gentlemen,

I herewith give you,

Glynsky and Pete,

the diablog!

Have fun, enjoy and participate.
