So... apologies, to anyone who cares, about the lack of updates recently. Crisis of confidence comes in many forms, but blog breakdown is a first for me.

There are some blogbabies out there at the moment who are just killing it. Straight keyboard hammers. I'm really feeling the pressure too much when mans are bringing their A game.

Here are some raw internetters who are maxing the laptizzy envelope:

DrEdson for fuzzy, nice vibes
TimDotNash for some funny, funny words.
LevTheMayorOfSouthbankAndPalaceWaywardsBoysChoir for the realness
ChromeBall for OGeeks
Jacob for consistency and japes

This is daft:

Wit and concentration escapes me today so I'm just going to whack down some random pictures from the last few days, and hope people still read my blog.

I'm off to Thailand in a bit, with these guys and because of this:

Basically, been in the armchair since friday...

...actually looking for 'funny shit' on youtube is a good benchmark for when shits gone wrong in your social life.

Or just life in general.

"lend us 50p, mate?"

Not all English people 'suck'?

Phew... and theres me thinking we were all doomed to a destiny of 'sucking'.

...for those not au fait with the term 'suck'

(for those under 30 years old) An intransitive verb indicating a negative state of affairs. Could be poor performance, bad weather, illness, general dislike, or any of innumerable negative thoughts.

(for those over 30 years old) Always a transitive verb. Colloquially used as shorthand for suck dick with noun dick understood. Synonymous with blow and bite. Used as an insult; indicates homosexuality.

(under 30) Cracka 1: Hey did you see the Simpson's last night? Bart said his father sucks!!!
Cracka 2: So, what's your point?

(over 30) Son: Gee dad, I don't want to do my homework. Math sucks.

Father: You're grounded for a week, you perverted little delinquent. And wash your mouth out with soap.

...or an alternative origin of the word:

The early Jazz musicians would say that a guy could really "Blow" if he had a good sound when playing the horn. If he couldn't play very well then they would say that he was "Sucking" on that horn. That's where the term "Suck" as being something bad came from.

He plays that horn so poorly that he must be sucking on it.

Clusterfuck Rumbles

Two top lads; one who makes films about men stripping and another who likes to watch films about men stripping.

This was the second job I did with Peter Cattaneo in less than a fortnight, although the Staples idents shoot was so dry that even the most select photojournalism couldnt have made it look even slightly interesting...

The epic August Jakobsson was having problems parking his Harley in Battersea Park, especially with all the wardens cunningly disguised as Choir singing Santas!

Stu and Matt Clyde fiddling with lights and lenses. Note Stus concentration pose... arms folded means business. Power business.
