The Apple “iSomething” craze of the late 2000s has a lot of shit to answer for.
Ha, hahaha haha hahahahaha ha, haha, hahaha… *sigh* … I am a five year old.
I’ve taken to getting myself lost as of late.
As hobbies go it’s pretty unorthodox, but I’m finding it enjoyable all the same.
It started purely accidentally; one evening while out running I took three wrong turns in a row and discovered I didn’t recognise any of my surroundings. It took me the best part of an hour to find my way home again, but once I was back on familiar turf I realised I had discovered something while lost that I hadn’t anticipated - not so much a specific place, mind you, but the idea of one.
Despite having lived in Southampton on and off for the best part of a year now, I have much of the town left to explore. It doesn’t take me long to find myself in an unfamiliar part of town and once I do I press on further, searching for a specific type of street. They’re dotted around here and there and are instantly recognisable, not by look but by feel.
Terrifying, glass-tipped penis creature in the EE shop window. What is this and how does it help sell me phones?
Feeling the spirit today. Even my beverage has the Stars and Stripes on it.
Where the heck is everyone?
Comic Con is just over a day away. I am ready.

You are clever and you can do this. You can do this, and you will do this. You are going to do great.”]
Thank you, Tiny Meerkat. I needed this today.
what does somewheretofit mean? also do you make $ with your blog using peepspayerDOTcom?
somewheretofit, roughly translated from the original Cherokee, means “one that shall not believe any crap sent to him via anonymous spammy bloggers”. Also, “peep-spayer”? Is that something that stops marshmallow animals from reproducing?
How many scripts have you written?
Loads, probably a hundred or so in total when considering everything I’ve tried over the years from plays to films to skits and sketches. None of them ever really amounted to much, mind you - I’ve had a couple of plays performed and made a few things into short films myself, but nothing that’s ever been made commercially or professionally.
The sitcom I’m currently working on will be the first time I’ve tried to write professionally to a brief.
Sometime within the next couple of weeks, all these Post-Its will evolve into a sitcom.
This is how my wardrobe currently looks. Each door contains a section of development - top right, characters; bottom right, location; top left, gags. The largest door contains the layout of the basic story.
I’ve never really been one for planning but, for some reason, this time around all my brain wants me to do is scribble things down on little bits of sticky yellow paper so I can rearrange, replace, remove and expand on various ideas as they come to me.
It is possible that somewhere my subconscious is using this as a form of procrastination to avoid actually writing the bloody thing, but I’m hoping it’s instead a sign that I’m growing up and actually thinking something through before starting it.
Another comic-inspired image I created with my limited artistic skills to replace some of my existing profile pictures as half are outdated and the other half a tad rubbish.
Once again I’m uploading a high quality version of it here as Facebook will undoubtedly compress the living hell out of it.
