InFest 2010 [1st. Sep, 2010|09:37 am]
[Current Location |Bradford]
[Current Mood |ecstaticecstatic]
[Current Music |Ayria - Hearts for Bullets]

And so InFest returns after a year's hiatus... And I'm wrecked. Batteries of laser artillery have erased my mind and overwritten it with over-copied William Gibson novels. My ears feel like they've been pipe-cleaned. I had a lip ring in, then I ate a burger and it was gone. I got off with an angel... And then a fit girl with blue hair licked my eyeball...

So much fun, so much floor killing music, and so many wonderful, funny, fucking sexy people, new and old. My phone literally died from all the contact details I rammed into it. It was of course over all too quickly.

So, hi to everyone I met. Yes, *sigh* I'm not on Facebook. I might join if you ask me nicely, pleadingly. Maybe throw me a bribe or two, right? I take cash. Or sex.

Some photos on my MySpace. Not much of the bands, because I have photos from a proper 'tog for that later.

I have only one regret. I should've said hi to that stunning 7ft tall girl :(

For my full write-up, please see the next issue of Unscene :).

See you around, yeah?

I just can't get enough of this film. My second-favourite scene (after the first-person alligator bit).

You should all go and watch this right-a-way :D

Wanderlust in Unscene Magazine [1st. May, 2010|04:50 pm]

I can now proudly say that anyone picking up the latest copy of Unscene Magazine(which you should) will find themself staring into the deepest, darkest and most ye olde gothick of places. And when you do, you'll find me staring back at you!*

For along with my regular cadre of reviews (bands, as ever, feel free to send submissions for the next issue), I am now the proud owner of one of this issue's (that being #8) two modelling features. In it you'll find a few words about me, and some of my best shots, including ones by Daves Draken and Charsley (Decline Gothica). Let me know what you think!


Now I'm here, I feel like I should add something of an update. Many of you will know that for various reasons - mainly due to computer trouble, and the progress of Myspace's code outpacing my computer-buying - I've not been here much, over an extended period of time. I can't even remember the last time I blogged. I'm still here though... Waiting in the shadows. If you know where to look, you can find me... biding my time. Keeping it real(ish). And I'll be doing both of those things at the summer's festivals. Will I see any of you at Infest, perhaps, or Whitby this October? (Maybe even at Leipzig, depending on what can be salvaged from the wake of the volcano).

Today has already been a great year for modelling purposes, and I hope to have yet another update of classiness, fairly soon.


And now a brief intrusion of VERY IMPORTANT REAL LIFE stuff.

Apparently there's an election on.

Well, I'm going to vote. One must, under these circumstances, and I suspect even the old tagline 'Whoever wins - we lose' is becoming a tad redundant.

At least Margaret Moran has been kicked out.

Be seeing you...

Ultraviolet (TV series) on Demand! [17th. Nov, 2009|02:39 pm]

Ultraviolet (not to be confused with the awful, awful Milla Jovovich film) is now viewable online at Channel 4.


Dark, cynical, clinical, and utterly brilliant. Starring Jack Davenport and Idris Elba among others, this is perhaps the only true modern Vampire tale in my estimation, and perhaps the one thing justifying Sky One's existence. Coming out in 1997, in my opinion at least, it hasn't been beaten.

I'd love to see them come across that Mormon Edward pillock.

Finally got around to updating the name, to anyone who's been left confused.

Hmph, while I'm here, I suppose I should leave a small update:

University is finished. Or at least it is until I get something worth basing my master's degree on. I graduated. With a first, apparently :)

I say apparently... Due to a mix-up, I've not received the paperwork yet :/

As to what I'm doing at the moment: Bits of music journalism, more photos, and otherwise enjoying life.

I can't make Whitby this October, sadly. So have a good time to those of you who are. I'll miss you! :(

See you at the Project Pitchfork and DeviantUK gig at the end of the month, whoever's going :)

Also, I'm now on DeviantArt

Sort of an update, at least;

I've been wandering in an odd sort of limbo ever since University finished. A hazy cloud of anti-climax and ambivalence, with the paths of life spread out before me to pick and choose at my leisure. Apparently the prognosis is good, but I'd like to see that in writing before I go and trumpet my claims to all and sundry.

What Star Trek Character Are You? [31st. May, 2009|11:47 am]

Hello Livejournal. I haven't completely forgotten you. I just gave up writing for lent, and decided I quite like that :)

Your results:
You are An Expendable Character (Redshirt)
An Expendable Character (Redshirt)
Jean-Luc Picard
Will Riker
James T. Kirk (Captain)
Leonard McCoy (Bones)
Geordi LaForge
Deanna Troi
Mr. Scott
Beverly Crusher
Mr. Sulu
Since your accomplishments are seldom noticed,
and you are rarely thought of, you are expendable.
That doesn't mean your job isn't important but if you
were in Star Trek you would be killed off in the first
episode you appeared in.

Tinsley Towers Ended [26th. Aug, 2008|07:05 am]
[Current Location |Bradford Pod 99]
[Current Mood |sadsad]
[Current Music |Seal/Adamski - Killer]

Since time immemorial, all our jaunts north have been marked by the landmark of Sheffield's Tinsley Towers. Big Industrial cooling towers, marking the unofficial start of the grim northern wastes. We drove up past them on Friday, and when we came back, they were stumps.


Despite the earth-shattering brazilliance of the weekend I've just had: Sad face :(
