Seasons

Several years into keeping this blog, Matt noticed pattern. Annual repetition, largely governed by natural seasonal events or advents within. A commentary of sorts.

Film is ace. You drop it off, you wait a bit and then the joy of opening the results for the first time are way better than seeing the results instantly on a digital back. Mostly. As well as that, the results are often somehow warmer. Like the valve radio vs the transistor. Like the vinyl vs the CD. I… Read more →

Reflections

A busy year. I’ve done more miles in the sky than any other year of my life. This year has had it’s ups and downs but on the whole, it’s been a heck of an adventure. We’ve lost some people (Eddie being the hardest blow for us) and we’ve gained some people. A few births, a few new friendships. I’ve… Read more →

Adventure Clocks

I’ve just completed my first ‘proper full week’ – Monday to Friday – at work since mid March. Got a new desk near a big window. Super happy. My professional life feels like it’s going through a bit of a level up which is good. I’ve done a bit of public speaking on stuff I’m passionate about (at Leeds digital… Read more →

Huh! It works!

Huh! It works!

Here’s a picture of me and my dog, kindly face – swapped, by a colleague at work who’s puts his high-end photoshop skills to good use both professionally, and for comedy value. Seeing this on here is awesome-sauce. Amaze-balls. DragonDrop is fixed. Sort of. I had a stinker of an issue where the media and images were not working. I… Read more →

Wondering

I””m in the back yard. I””ve just been handed a smoothie.. Wondering what I”m going to do with this here website. Back in the day when I was on a one man crusade to get everyone blogging, I used to say stuff like “don””””t think, just write”. I used to have people saying – oh but my life is so… Read more →

365 Project – COMPLETE

365 Project – COMPLETE

364.5 Days ago I launched a project to blog every day throughout 2013. Publishing this very post will complete that project. By way of something to write about today, I thought I’d surface some of my fave moments, and (going by view stats) some of yours. It’s been a remarkable year. Some of it I knew was coming – the… Read more →

(worky) Year End

Even thought I’ve still got a few days to go, today was the last ‘normal’ day of work for me in ’till after the Christmas break. Everyone starts to disappear from now on. It’ll be a time for mainly odd jobbery – hopefully some of those bits that get pushed to the bottom of the list O’Clock. There’s an air of conclusion… Read more →

10 years ago

Monday’s eh? They often set out to remove the last vestiges of ones weekend gusto, the erstwhile enthusiasm and creativity generated over the weekend can so easily dissipate, if you’re not careful. I don’t let them though. Oh no. I’ve got a few sneaky weapons up my sleeve for when the Monday blues try to poo poo my moves. I… Read more →

Clocks and Chestnuts

Clocks and Chestnuts

I liked my friend Daren’s facebook statement earlier: “Today has mostly been an exercise in being SURPRISED BY WHAT TIME IT *IS/ISN’T! “. Quite. It caught us out – we hadn’t a clue. No harm done though – not like the time when I didn’t notice until someone told me on Monday morning, after I’d got to work a whole hour… Read more →
