Bigfoot in the Redwoods (in HQ)

Remember the film of the reunion of the lion and the two guys? This one is even more touching. Really. No, really.

Sincere vow

I hereby do solemnly promise and pledge that I will henceforth abjure, eschew and refrain from all news stories and opinion pieces which attack McCain and support Obama, and vice versa.

I live in Europe, fucksake. It doesn't matter. Intriguing as it may be, it doesn't matter. There are too many other things to think about. For example, does this Camembert have another day in it, or should it be eaten this evening? Now there's a choice where there's really something at stake.

The rest of you: knock yourselves out.

Painting tips by Mark Rothko

Take the time to contemplate this:

and then whenever you're asked to paint something and you can't think of a damn thing to paint, remember this, and you'll realise it's not necessary to think. Sometimes all you have to do is paint.

Please note: The above does not apply to writing. The deployment of words in abstract shapes with no meaning will only result in the phenomenon known as "blogging".

All that’s needed now is for men to find out where the button is.

Here's a nice wallpaper I designed at BGPatterns. I was thinking it would look good in the spare room, staring back at me.

Designs are free, sign up to show in their gallery.

Still Game

A very short clip from the great Glasgow sitcom Still Game, the sixth series of which is up on YouTube. This is just a great little scene I clipped out, no sooner started than it's over.
