Postit #3

Chicken and Noodles for lunch!

Old videos!

So much nostalgia, ladies and gentlemen!
I recently re-stumbled upon some old videos that I made before/during college some 3-4 years ago!
As much as they make me cringe they also bring back good memories so here they are for all to see, hope they make you smile!

Attack of the blobs!
Fresh out of my GCSE's we were given a summer project to do before college which was simply titled 'heaven and hell on the isle of man' (of course I left it until 2 or 3 days before)
We had to show these in front of all our new class mates and embarassingly I was the only one who made a film rather than photographs- it was a long 2 minutes but it went down well!
Shot on a crappy digital camera that kept running out of batteries and animated in flash.
Awful sound, shoddy animation and terrible slow-mo stunts but it still makes me chuckle!

Best Friends Forever
Probably my favourite- we were given 39 camera techniques to use, I think i used 38 in the end. Absolute nonsense, but it made people laugh.

How to be a Man
My tutors hated this.. and I understand why, really. The brief was an 'instructional or how to video', so mine didn't really sit in well with all the 'how to maintain your guitar' and 'how to bake a cake' videos.
Basically unscripted and unplanned, very hit and miss, but it had a small cult following.. cough

Watermelon Man
We were given songs and asked to film something. Filmed with only one watermelon head, would you believe! Very slow going (and not that exciting!)

I've got a feeling that these will be more interesting for me rather than anyone else who reads this blog (but then I have a very strong feeling not noone reads this blog!)

You haven't been forgotten!

Having just spent the past few hours copying, pasting, re-dating and then filling out captchas for my bosses new blog I thought that it would probably be a good time to update my own before it disappears into the dust of ages, or cyberspace, the matrix, whereever forgotten sites go! (Although I did see the 'space jam' website the other day, that seems in pretty good nick, doesn't it? Still looks better than myspace)

So how have I been attacking the new year? I haven't done alot, really- i've put on a bit of weight (probably owed to sleeping at normal times and eating regularly- whoever said crash diets dont work should really work a few months in a busy central london bar.. and stop being such a smug genetically gifted cunt!)

I've gone all 'Apple', after years of aggresively arguing that it's all overpriced shit, I immediately sold out almost as soon as I could finally afford to and I have to say i'm very happy about it! They're just easy, and pretty, who doesn't like that? Although I don't like being judged by technology.. it was a triple letter score after all..

 'I don't like being judged by technology.. it was a triple letter score after all..'

My new phone, it even has a calculator!

Complete with an excessively massive screen, the only downside is that you cant really enjoy standard definition porn anymore
I'm still going to the gym on occasion but not as much as I'd like- but i'm too tired to try and be funny or interesting.. It'd be a waste of time to carry on.. i'll get exciting soon- promise! An unofficial resolution is to try and use this blog a bit more for things other than apologising for not blogging enough- so do come back!

In the meantime you should all set your T.V guides, or planners or whatever your tv does now to catch the new Sky living show, 'The Spa' which is beginning on the 7th of feb!!
I've seen it already and it did make me ROFL and LMAO!- maybe you'll LOL too.

The Spa which begins on Sky Living (109 on virgin) 7th of feb!
