Ok, so recently I have started using tumblr and found
some really interesting and cool stuff there. So I have
decided to bring some of the things from Tumblr onto
this blog. So that when it comes a time when I can’t
think of something to do on here I can always place
something here that I have found previous.
The first thing that I would like to share is a video that I found
that I find pretty cool and I hope you’ll enjoy. :]

[i think it’s quite accurate to be honest]
Ok, regular readers of this blog [or if you know me] know that
I have recently moved to Wales from my home in south east
England and this is quite a distance.
251 miles [according to google maps]
Now this isn’t the first time I’ve moved away from home, but
it is by far the furthest distance away. And don’t get me wrong
I am actually constantly enjoying myself here. But for the first
time in my life on Sunday I felt homesick , which was odd,
because being totally honest I’ve never felt that before because
I’ve never really been more than an hour away.
Now was it a family member? Nope. Was it the fact that it was
my mums birthday and I wan’t there? Nope. Was it the fact that
I missed my little brothers first gig with his new band? Nope.
The thing that made me feel homesick was that for the first
time I actually felt missed, and it was communicated through
a simple facebook status update by a friend of mine
Now this isn’t to say that I don’t miss my family because I do, but I
dunno that one kinda got to me, oh well. Oh and S.C.B is Super
Chocolate Bear, a nickname Andrew gave me because he is a big
Oh and on a random thing, my hair style at the moment is the best I think
I’ve ever had it, it’s platted at the tip and shaved at the sides, really like it.
Also, think I’m gonna drag random people to Wales. Yepyep

Although I have written what some would
say are a fair few blogs, the majority of what
I write [or in most cases, what I intend to
write] gets written down in my notepads.
I have different notepads for different things, I have
one for general thoughts and feelings that I have in
my day to day as well things that I would otherwise
forget, I have one that will one day become a travel
journal [if I could just start it off], I have one for
writing down ‘Little Green Book‘ lyrics in and I have
one for writing down my photographic and video
ideas down into.
The one thing that all these notepads have in
common with one another, is that I only ever
use pencil to jot down ideas. I’m not sure why,
I’ve just always preferred them.
As always I am really into researching things and thats
why at the moment I am reading a book on Greek and
Roman mythology. But if you wanted to research pencils,
here are some sites to look at :]
‘The History Of Pencils’
‘An Entry On Pencils On Wikipedia’
Just a small note, one should always use a HB
pencil for when they are drawing [which I can’t
do anyway] or jotting down their thoughts, it
feels nicer. Almost as nice as using a biro to write
on a banana skin. Go on, try it :]

Since moving to Wales I have spent alot of time watching online videos, either on Vimeo or Youtube and I have found two videos that I would like to share with you the first was shot on a Super 8 camcorder. Giving them a vintage grainy look, which I love.
I really like this one, it has nice music and is a very nice watch. It was made by Groningen based arts duo DocterSterkenburg. Christiaan Docter is a filmcomposer and Jonathan Sterkenburg is a cinematographer. And it is a homage of sorts to their home city of Groningen.
Come on, feel the Groningen! from MUZIEKTELEVISIE.NL on Vimeo.
The second video was made Jarbas Agnelli and he is amazing at video work, and as with the first video it’s actually quite inspirational and makes me feel that I should be doing video as well. The video below was recorded by his father in 1974 and features him, his brother and his father.

I have a youtube account, but the videos aren’t that good – http://www.youtube.com/squarebracketsvideo

I’ve been meaning to write this post for some
time now, and the thing is, ut’s not lack of
inspiration thats stopping me from writing,
it’s the fact that I needed to be able to convey
But the fact that I was being so picky led to me
not saying anything. And not saying anything
can sometimes be worse than not saying anything
at all. Sometimes.
Well, here we are I have moved to Wales to live
with my friend Tabitha and four other people,
all of which I have gotten along with amazingly.
It has been so great these past few days, it all
seems new but at the same time familiar. Ah
well, haha, at the moment I’m at a girly
sleepover. And it’s jokes, drinking games
unabound. So yeah, top fun. :]
I actually had some higher hopes for this post
but can’t think of a great way to structure it,
So instead of saying nothing, I said something.
