One Take Super 8

So today I officially signed up for this year's One Take Super 8 event. Which means in the next month I will be shooting a three minute silent film that will be aired in the festival. I'm not saying it's going to be good but it'll definitely be something. It's also free to come see the show, so if you're in town on Nov. 6 be sure to check it out.

Vintage Cockbook

Is it just me or does it look like this book might contain a recipe for fish flavoured cock?

Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew

Honest folks, I can't make this kind of shit up. I wish I could. I don't know that it'd make me rich, but at least I'd keep myself amused forever.
Captain Dan & the Scurvy Crew are a hip hop group that, you guessed it, sings Pirate Hip Hop. Their CD is called Rhymes of the Hip Hop Mariners which, in my opinion, is about the awesomest thing EVER.
To be honest, I'm not a Hip Hop fan (surprise, surprise). But combine it with something I love a lot, say... Pirates, and suddenly you've got something infinitely better than the original. So good, in fact, that I want it (for no other reason than to say that I own it and to get a good laugh).
Now that you're aware of this I'm sure the next gift giving-type holiday will be a breeze for you. You can get me a copy and, hell, get one for everyone you know. It's the perfect gift. Unless everyone you know happen to be ninjas. Trust me, they won't want this.

*Honestly, you have to listen to their tracks and read some of the comments. This shit is fucking priceless.

From Me To You 25

It's hard to believe that I've done twenty-five of these already. They grow up so fast don't they?

- If you're going to go to the trouble to drive an hour out of town just to take pictures (especially when gas prices are at an all time high) be sure to charge your batteries before you go. Even if you're sure they'll be fine. Or at least bring spares. Just in case.

- Newton's Laws of Motion seems to explain most cat behaviour. Or maybe that should be the other way around.

- There is a very fine line between being a realist and being a cynic.

- If you actually think you need a "life coach" to achieve your goals, make decisions, live your life the way you want, you are too stupid to actually deserve those things. If you really want to throw money away that badly you could at least be doing something useful like, oh I don't know, donating it to a fucking charity or the poor or to me. Jesus Christ on a cracker!

- There are few things more unattractive than being a fucking militant. About anything. Religion, politics, dietary choices, environmentalism, it doesn't matter. You're actually giving your cause a bad name and pushing people the other way. Here's a tip, do the research, get all the facts, put together an intelligent argument and present it at appropriate times in a calm, collected, rational manner. You'll get a lot more people listening and a fuck load more respect. Trust me.

Alien Life Form? Are You Sure?

I'm stealing a page from the book of Janna today as I'm feeling lazy and uncreative. So here is a list of 10 things ALF could stand for.

1. Anal Lube Formula
2. Alabama Llama Farm
3. Angry Lizard Fights
4. Abraham Lincoln Farted
5. Ask Laurence Fishburne
6. Annoying Lazy Freaks
7. Artichoke Leaf Fever
8. Aspic Lovers Foundation
9. Alan Ladd Forever
10. Acrid Left-over Fumes

Back Again

Sorry all, I know it's been almost two weeks with nothing at all from me. But to be honest, I really needed some time. As I keep telling people around here (here being what goes on in my "real life") it's nothing specific, it's nothing I can point to and say "that's what's wrong" and it's nothing anyone can fix. It's just the way I am and it takes time for me to get past bad patches. Right now I'm feeling much better and getting back to abnormal. So, thanks for understanding, those that do and those that don't can't go fuck ourselves. Cool? Cool.
Anyway, I'm hoping we can get back to our regularly scheduled insanity now. Enjoy!

It Must Be Some Horrible Mistake

It's not possible that I'm actually a grown up. It's a lie and I'll be found out as a fraud any day now, I know it. But I just can't explain away what happened yesterday. I can't do it and be a kid at the same time, can I? Unless I'm some kind of amazing adult/kid hybrid! That would be cool!
Wait... you want to know what happened yesterday? I guess I should explain.
I did some work for a friend of the family, folding folders (which is actually less fun than it sounds). I also got paid for doing all this. Not a huge amount, but enough for me to pay for the tattoo I've been planning on getting or buying a lot of fun shit. But did I do anything of the sort? No. No I did not.
It pains me to say it, but I took every last cent and I paid off my credit card and all of my bills. As much as that pains me, it pains me even more to say that I was actually, literally, totally, excited about paying off all my bills. Especially that fucking credit card.
Now, if you'll excuse me I have to go change in to some jammies, eat some incredibly sugary cereal while I watch cartoons.

I've been having a really bad couple of weeks and I haven't been in the head space for posting. Hopefully this will change very, very soon.

I Will Follow You Into The Dark

I have never been a fan of Death Cab For Cutie. Then the other night I was looking around the iTunes store and ended up in the "just for you" section or whatever the hell it's called, flipping through the samples they had up. I found a couple of things I liked but when I hit this one I actually stopped and played it again. Then I got it and listened to the whole thing. Then I listened to it again. I don't know what else to say except I love it.

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

No, not back to school and definitely not Christmas. No folks, it's officially time for the stores to start putting out the Halloween stuff! Yay! I personally start the countdown to Halloween on Nov. 1st, but for the stores and, well, most people now is the time to start thinking about costumes and decorations and what-not. (It's also the time, by the way, that it's best to do most of your Christmas shopping for me. Actually, you could probably just stock up on presents for me for any gift requiring holiday throughout the year. So long as you understand the difference between "cool" halloween stuff and "childish"/"tacky" halloween stuff.)
So in honour of this most festive time of year, I've been doing what I always do. Buying more shit for my house. Today I bought this guy.

He found a very happy home along with a few other things I have hanging in my living room. (Living room? Honestly, I need to start calling it something else. It's full of coffins, scythes and skulls.)

I should become an interior decorator. I fucking rock at this shit.

*I've also added a countdown at the bottom of the page.
