Why Nobody Says Goodbye in Movies

There’s this strange phenomenon in movies, where certain elements of life are just not deemed worthy for inclusion. The humble hello and goodbye, and other such niceties, are scrapped for a faster paced storyline. How does this influence society I wonder. Do we just ignore this pop culture influence or does it become ingrained in us? In ...

Gym Rants: Dropping weights

It’s time for some more ranting, and because I have many things to rant about when it comes to this topic, let’s just give it a theme name. “Gym Rants.” Yup, original as ever. In this episode, I rant about people dropping weights, a phenomenon I witnessed just this week in the gym. I usually meet ...

My 1st Cricket Game

Cricket, a game invented by some old white dudes to bring the many conquered lands together under British rule. I have, to this day, never watched a full day of cricket. I find it mindlessly boring, similar perhaps to watching a snail attempt to cross the back yard. It’s interesting for maybe 2 mins and ...

Stupid Fender Bender

There’s nothing worse than that sinking feeling when something goes wrong and there’s nothing you can do to fix it. The flight or flight mode in your brain is triggered and you immediately want to run. Then reality hits and tells you, sorry, there’s no getting out of this one. That’s exactly what happened to me ...

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 ...
