Messing around with my camera and listening to lots of music, that’s about it. Snow, looking evil, of Montreal, drawing.
Just a short update really with a fair few pictures. With all this snow we had on Saturday I took a couple of pictures including a very arty one which was just next to the garage, i think the shadow was coming from the tree in next doors garden. Also since i am more beardy than i was i thought i would update my facebook picture. I quickly took this and put my hood up to see what it would look like. Scary stuff and so i thought i would keep it.
Also Troy spotted that of Montreal are touring in the UK again and it’s in Leeds so i can go visit and see the band, avoiding the hell hole city that is Manchester. In anticipation i went ahead and bought the album from polyvinyl records. The best thing about them as a record label is that they give you instant access to a nice 320kbps album download. So i don’t have to wait two weeks for it to turn up from the US before i can listen to it. It’s one of their stranger albums but it’s growing on me although i still think False Priest is better.
I also finally finished Ashes to Ashes and it’s a great tv show if you get the chance watch Life on Mars THEN Ashes to Ashes. Anyway Ashes is set in the 80’s and i have now been listening to the best of The Human League. Especially Mirror Man
It’s just so good.
I used to have a tablet, back in the day a tablet was something you plugged in to your computer and used for drawing. Mine had a serial connection because USB hadn’t been invented, it’s that old. Anyway i thought it would be fun to get another one and do some cartoons again and just generally mess around with it. So i will add some stuff i do to the site even if it is sheyet.
Well that is all for this update, i’m not doing too bad at updating but want to try get a few more rants and raves going on. So maybe something next week….
Airbrush only works if the middle aged woman doesn’t stand infront of it.
Look i am keeping my promise a new journal update. Just need to figure out what i am going to write now. Henry Weston, Snow, Hit Record, Tumblr and Rota stuff. All this in the last 4 days.
Ok so i am sat here listing to Mose Allison and feeling very chilled, waiting for an achievement to pop up which won’t and in a party where no one is talking.
So its the perfect time to do a small little update and keep up my end of the bargain. I update, you read, that’s about as involved as it gets.
If you don’t keep up with the scrapbook, which generally gets more attention than any other part of the site, you will see a box of booze. It was a late christmas present from Troy, Mat, James and Rob. Totally unexpected and very very welcome thanks chaps.
I integrated my twitter posts into the site a while back and it worked ok but most of my tweets are just out of context crap. While following @burningdan i saw that he wasn’t using twitter he was using Tumblr. It is basically an expanded version of twitter, you can post images, videos and text. Best of all it links to facebook, twitter and now booshambles. So i replaced the homepage twitter feed with a tumblr feed, pictures look great on it and i can update 3 sites in 1 go. Booshambles Tumblr Page is the link, i love making other sites look like booshambles.
Hit Record.org is now on Version 4! and it’s looking better than ever. I don’t really have the creativity those people have, i can write crap and make a website look like pong on smack but thats about it. Go there look around and see how awesome this project is.
Work rota changing again so i am off every tuesday and when i work Saturdays i will be working 2:30pm – 11pm. More details next week when i get the rota through. Speaking of work it is the christmas do on the 23rd, Caribbean theme should be interesting.
Terrorists have nerve gas but Sean can’t help thinking about Frodo’s ring
Hope you like the new 24 related homepage caption I basically chose 24 so i could say WOW what a half season cliffhanger. There seems to be no 24 inside this year which is a shame but they are still making small videos about this season so check them out. They have also made a 24 game and i would love to play it but they chose the shoddy PS2. This must have sold well in the US or something and it seems a strange choice, personally i would have chosen PC and Xbox360 as very soon the PS2 will be ebayed off in the thousands for the arrival of the PS3. I actually don’t know if it is out yet it probably already is but as the leet say…”meh”.
Last Friday had to be the strangest day, watching 3 or 4 inches of snow fall in a few hours and making my brain think it was Christmas again. Well on the Saturday I thought it never snows like this anymore so i went outside and made a snowman where i always used to and for the first time ever i used real coal for the buttons and eyes nose and mouth, i know i should have used a carrot but we didn’t have any so i say again “MEH!”.
I recently bought the new Lucas Arts game “Star Wars: Empire at War” It is basically Star Wars Command and Conquer but has both land and space battles across the entire galaxy, why just this morning to capture this screenshot i moved the deathstar above hoth and blew the shit out of Mon Mothma. To view the exact moment she realised she shouldn’t have joined the rebel scum click on the screen shot on the right.
