Chris and Leah’s Wedding

As more and more of my friends get hitched, I’m left behind watching this strange happiness that overcomes their lives. I’ve never really been in love, so the whole thing is profoundly surreal. And yet, as the grooms break down when they see their beautiful wives walking down the isle, and the family and friends ...

Managers

After my third year of being told what to do by managers, I think I’m convinced that starting my own company is the best way to avoid this. Is it the constant questioning, the blame game when things go wrong, or the complete lack of thanks when things go well? Who knows, but working for ...

The Weekend is Like

Friday afternoon is the most magical time of my week. As I drive home I usually turn up my music to deafening levels and scream it’s the weeeeekkkkeeend baby! Something I learnt from the brilliant Gareth Cliff radio show. As I drove home this week I was thinking of all the wonderful things that happen on ...

Piracy

Piracy is one of my pet hates. Being somebody that has a passion for the entertainment industry, it feels like a personal attack when people steal things and think it’s perfectly fine. I’ve had this argument with my friends countless times, and although they often admit that it’s wrong, they justify it to themselves and ...

This is war

When I was a kid I would spend hours in my garden, imagining worlds, presenting TV shows to fake cameras, and generally entertaining myself. For this week’s video I wanted to capture a bit of that world of imagination. I was also very keen to play with sound effects to sell the situation. I didn’t want ...

Billboard Number 1 Challenge

I love music, who doesn’t? Even certain religions that claim it is wrong to listen to music still have it in some form, acapella, chanting, it’s all music even if some sounds nicer than others. For this week’s video, Mandy and I created our own challenge which would allow us to celebrate some of the biggest ...

Facebook Friends

Facebook has become a strange social media land. It’s become a place of observers and over sharers. The observers don’t post anything, but they know everything about everyone because they’re still on Facebook every five minutes. The over sharers are the ones providing the content, and people ride them for it to, unaware of the ...

Drinking

One of the biggest disconnects I’ve found with people in my young adult life is drinking. I’ve never seen the point of drinking, it tastes bad, it makes you loose your mind and look like an idiot, you feel terrible the next day and it’s crazy expensive. I get that it’s a drug, it’s the ...

Running – SOTI

The series that loves to teach you things in the most uncomfortable ways is back. This time we’re looking at running. If we’re honest there are some people that look very weird when they run, there’s those that flap their arms about and some that look like they’re marching through a war zone eager to get ...

Goodbye Childhood Soft Toys

Call me a giant baby, but I’ve always loved soft toys. When we’re little, our parents give us these tiny soft creations to comfort us, keep us warm and to confide in. As we grow older they’re just decorations on the bed, and then if you’re still hanging on to them as a teenager you ...
