This is boring, show me something else

California Adventure

August 28, 2016 12:40 pm

I’ve been obsessed with the world of colour/color fountains over at Disney’s California Adventure for blinking years. It was time to finally see them. They were good.

Disneyland

August 28, 2016 12:36 pm

A glorious trip to the my ancestral homeland. I’ve been going to Disneyworld over in Florida and Paris for blinking ages. It is every Disney fans duty to visit and pay homage to the ground walked upon my Walt himself. I’ll be back with a boring type rant, but for now do you best to enjoy the video 🙂

The art

August 10, 2016 6:56 pm

Yes another boring rant. I’ve been plagued for years. At least since university. I’ve been plagued with this thing I call ‘The Art’. I have no idea what the fucking hell it is. All I know is that it lives in my heart and every now and then bubbles up to the top and spews out as awful rants such as this one. It’s some desire to create, to create something truly beautiful. Something game changing, something that makes people think, makes them cry, something perfect. Some perfect ‘thing’…I have no idea if this is music, art, video, painting, food…I...

Not having buffets in Las Vegas

August 8, 2016 6:14 pm

I had been looking forward to Vegas for ages. I’d heard it was Disneyland for grownups, a place where any pleasure is available at any time of the day. The plane took blinking ages, I’m a chap that can’t sit down, can’t watch TV and can’t play computer games. I always have to be doing something, so 11 hours sat on a plane didn’t play nicely with my body and mind. Luckily James Martin had prepared me an awful lunch. As always there was a manic rush to get off the plane, being a cool trendy guy I thought I’d...

Venice Beach – Loosing Car Keys

August 8, 2016 11:59 am

Today I lost the car keys. This actually turned into a bit of a minor nightmare. I’d assumed they would just have some spare keys somewhere? – Turns out the entire car had to be towed. After the wonderful Chuck towed us to safety, they gave us a new upgraded car full of petrol, so happy days. We then journey onto the hippy and trendy venice beach!

So what now?

August 5, 2016 6:14 pm

I’m not sure. I was happily plodding along, wearing my suit, my shiny shoes, turning up to my office super early, staying really late. (All the offices bits are true, the clothing less so.) Working like Christopher the hard worker. I think I then cracked. I’d been in that office for years, and previous offices for even more years. All of a sudden I realised that wasn’t me. I developed some kind of sickness or hatered towards hashtag corporate land. Why am I sat here doing this? I used to be a real arty lad doing all kinds of adventures…now...

Bye Clifton

August 3, 2016 7:30 pm

This is a bit of an emotional one, I will probably do a more indepth rant, I may not (turns out I did a little one here). I was in Clifton Fields for a good three years. The time had come to leave. It’s time for a change.

Highway One to Morro Bay

August 3, 2016 7:28 pm

An epic drive to the coast along glorious Highway one. Visiting Monterey Bay for some seafood and then down to wonderful Morro Bay. I fell in love with the place, a little isolated town of seaside surfer lovelyness.

Yosemite Adventure

August 3, 2016 7:25 pm

I simply adored Yosemite. Another rant on this subject to come another day. I couldn’t quite get across how beautiful this place was in the vlog. Epic, tall, mighty.

Death Valley & Big Pine

August 3, 2016 7:23 pm

And the car does actually start after a good old rest. We journey out of death valley and onto Lucious, beautiful Big Pine. I adored Big Pine so much!

Car breaks in death valley

August 3, 2016 7:21 pm

Gosh this was a scary day, we leave Vegas for death valley, see some sights, visit a ghost town – another rant to come another day on this one! The car then overheats and refuses to continue!

Day in Vegas & Gambling win!

August 3, 2016 7:19 pm

After the adventures of yesterday, today is a calm day. Wandering around Las Vegas strip, a trip to the Bellagio breakfast buffet, a swim swim at the MGM pool, a failed attempt at an evening buffet and then some night time gambling action – with a win!

Vegas to Grand Canyon

August 3, 2016 7:14 pm

We wake up blinking early today and try to make the way out of the hotel, most people hadn’t even gone to bed when we were leaving! To the carpark, and the LONG trek to the grand canyon south rim, it’s a good trek, about 4 hours each way. There was something strange about the place, I’ve another rant to do about it another day, I just couldnt quite take it in or something.

Going west – Manchester to Vegas

July 6, 2016 7:37 am

Join me on an adventure to Las Vegas, flying from Manchester. We’ll have a wee on a plane and eat a James Martin fly food. We’ll then land, hire a car, drive up Las Vegas strip, check in to the MGM Grand hotel, have a wonder, eat at the buffet and go sleepy by ready for a day of adventures tomorrow!

Blue

June 1, 2016 6:25 am

Some kind of adventure outside into the blue, a glorious place of regenerative and loving warmth.

Change

May 26, 2016 2:21 pm

Some kind of ranty update after a bit of being super poorly and realising the other way.

Meeting Warm

May 24, 2016 9:23 am

I enjoy the warm. I enjoy that gloriousness of getting stuck to your chair, that first dribble of sweat down your back, that stingy burn starting to sizzle on your arms. I’ve always adored the uncomfortableness of warmth. Many unfortunate people around me have been forced to indure ‘Holiday Recreation’ which is basically sitting in the car on a warm ish day (smaller the car the better) with the heater on full and windows rammed shut. I always sat in cars abroad looking at the temperature gauge, wishing, persuading…begging it to go above 100. Flips flops melting to your feet,...

Slooooooow bbq beef ribs.

May 16, 2016 10:22 am

This cut of meat is going to go the way of pork belly and lamb shanks (expensive) get in there quick whilst it’s cheap. If you adore your meat gloriously moist, sticky and smooth you will adore the beef rib. If you enjoy dry meat, you’re in the wrong place. There is only way to go with the beef rib, very very long and slow. More intense fans may remember the vlog ages ago with the sous vide experiments. Can a single day cook in a low oven with a finish on the BBQ yield as tasty results? We start...

Iceland vlog

May 10, 2016 7:30 pm

Rejoice in a semi music-montaged Iceland vlog! Fans of reading boring rants may enjoy the semi write up by clicking here

Nothing in Iceland

May 10, 2016 7:27 pm

This isn’t a write up, a travel guide or anything you should follow if you have landed here looking for Iceland related things. Loads of people are doing that really ace, so I’ll do something else. I’m drawing a line under the bizarre conditions about how I ended up here and won’t even go into any depth about how I spent an hour in a police station in Reykjavik…it’s not what I want to ramble to you about. I don’t actually know what I want to ramble about. I think it’s the nothing… I’m not saying here is nothing, there...

Berlin changed my world

May 2, 2016 6:04 pm

My brain had hit the end of it’s tether. I snapped, broke and found myself on a plane to Berlin. Tired of hashtags, of properness and of #business being done in a way I just don’t agree with, well not agree with, but in a way that I just dont want to be part of. I was trying to fight it, I was really trying hard to show this other way, but you know what, it’s really tiring and can be really brain lonely…there is another way… Again, I’ll try not bore of you of the other way, but it’s...
