I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
acuthberto replied to your post: Thoughts on: Getting started with chapter one of my novel
I want to go all Enid Blyton on everybody and write a book about crime solving teens.
And at the end, the twist is that it was all a dream and somehow, actually a clever allegory for the current situation of the rise of wheat-free baking in Canadian cinema and it’s effects on global politics.
It’s like…a name? I might have forgotten it already. You are a spiffing chap and a chocolate bar of any other name would still get eaten.
Unless it was called a Shitflakes Bar.
The book continues to get more and more interesting and thoughtful as it continues. Sometimes stories start a little slow, I agree!
I can be quite impatient with books…but it’s purely because my reading time is so scarce. I wish I’d read more as a kid, when I had nothing but time.
I grew to love it over the course of the afternoon, but it’s very teen fiction and as such the characters suffer from being teenagers.
Which is pretty much the reason I can’t play Final Fantasy games any more. It’s just….you just want to shake the little fuckers and tell them to get over themselves. THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO END, EVERYONE YOU LOVE WILL DIE BUT YOU ARE CRYING BECAUSE THE BOY YOU LIKE SAW YOU WITH A GUY WHO IS JUST YOUR FRIEND BUT NOW HE THINKS YOU HAVE A BOYFRIEND. Also, Phoenix Downs not working during cutscenes. That stops me from suspending my disbelief.
Not that I’ve read it, but having just read the synopsis it sounds shite. Some YA books just don’t translate past their market.
Provided they don’t “Final Fantasy” too much, and waffle on about really insignificant shit like it’s significant, I don’t mind most YA. I quite liked Skullduggery Pleasant ( although I didn’t like the action scenes ) and Lemony Snicket. And I do like John Green, from the Youtubes at least.
I personally thought it was complete garbage. and I tried really hard to like it at first… but that’s my opinion.
But then, I don’t like a lot of things.
You keep reading. It’s like an aqcuired taste. It is okay to be disappointed, but it still an amazing book for Mr. Green to have written :)
It gets better. The characters definitely get more likable. I read it during a cross country flight and chapter one was okay but the rest…
This is everything I think about vidya gaems. I play skyrim to be alone in some big world where nobody bothers me. Multiplayer? No chuffing thank you.
We’re in the minority, and I’m fine with that. I know that “the future of gaming is online” and that multiplayer id only going to become a bigger and bigger thing, and maybe one day, there will be no single player. Or, you’ll have to log into a persistent MMORPG, to play your single player games. Like a cross between Steam and Playstation Home. Meh.
In an ideal world, there would also be more turn-based single player games. But that’s just me.
From all your pictures I think you and your family look like one of those cool families that I curse in independent coffee shops for being so cool and together. Ugh. Stop it. In the best way.
Yes. That’s us. ¬_¬ ( sarcasm doesn’t really work in text form, so spoiler: ««< that’s sarcasm. heh )
Although, I do favour Beanscene and Su Casa over the big boys like Starbucks or Costa. Does that count? And Katie and Sophie are cool. Katie is crafty and arty and pretty. And Sophie is a comedy genius.
Having a beard just means you’re sweet/cuddly/awesome. Do these parents not let their children have teddy bears? Jeez…
Maybe not 5 foot tall teddy bears, right enough. ^_^ I mean, the beard isn’t so much a stylistic choice ( although, I do think my face looks ridiculous without a beard ) it’s primarily a lazy thing…I just can’t be bothered shaving that often.
So, it’s not like I’ll succumb to peer pressure and shave. I shave as and when it gets to wiry and itchy that it bothers me. And nary a minute before!
It really is worth just going the whole hog and buying both the DLC’s btw, they add some pretty fucking cool stuff that I wish I coulda had in my first play through!=D
Since my plan to get Sophie toenjoy watching video gameshasn’t really come to fruition, I don’t really expect to even ever see all that Skyrim: Vanilla has to offer…I will be surprised if I manage to hit the 40 hour mark, truth be told. So, I’d begrudge paying more for more content that I’m never going to see. Hahaha.
I ran away. I ran so fast. “WHERE’S LYDIA?! OH GOD, IS SHE DEAD?!” That was my first time.
I could sneak past, my stealth skill is boss…Or avoid him…I’ve seem him run away chasing a goat. But no. I’ve heard that they can kill Dragons, so…I want his head. On my imaginary mantle.
I’ll pepper his hairy flesh with my Orcish bow. Might even switch to my more expensive Steel Arrows. Maybe even dip a couple in poison. Shout at him a little. Get Lydia to slap him about with her Frost Axe ( stupid bint…why did you bring THAT to a snow covered mountain? ) Oh, I’ll fuck him up for sure.
I may not get an achievement for it, but I’ll be happy. And that’s enough of an achievement for me.
Not recently enough. I adore it.
I haven’t seen it since it was new. Like, since it was on.
Once we finish GCB, I might grab a torrent of One Foot In The Grave.
BAHAHAHAHAHA. Lu Bu. I remember the first time I went after him in Dynasty Warriors 2. I ran. I ran so far.
I don’t think there is anything in this world that scares me more than Lu Bu.
I’ve heard tale of people who can pursue him, and beat him, but I call total bullshit on that.
Well…yes…I mean…it’s not great. I can get through a day, but if I’m out and about with music on I tend to pap it on Airplane mode so that it saves battery. I always have a charger with me too. But this is 2 years old!
Awesome. That’s more that enough for my needs. I’d heard some tales of HTCs lasting 4 hours!
I’ll not be using it for music, so that should help!
E-mail address is all you need really. I recently dropped my HTC and had to do a factory reset. All contacts came up when my email synced.
p.s. How do you find your HTC? I’ve heard their battery life is terrible…
It’s honestly one of my worst books I’ve ever read. I had to read it in high school, and like you, thought if I pushed through it, and prevailed, it would get better, but it didn’t. If I were you, if you have more deserving books, read those.
It’s a really short book so keep going. I loved it but…it’s one of those books I grew up with so I can overlook it’s…crap.
Books, like music, are entirely subjective when it comes to enjoyment. Me? I like Gatsby, but I thought Catcher was fucking crap.
I think I’m going to abandon it for now. Maybe, maybe when I’ve nothing but time on my hands, I’ll come back to it.
But right now, I’m resenting it because I’m not enjoying it, and resenting it because it’s keeping me from other books that I could be enjoying.
Did you know, I’ve not read Asimov’s Foundation books, for instance? Or ANY Danny Wallace / Dave Gorman books? Or, really, any books for the past 15 years. So, I’m prioritising. Books that I enjoy now, and the rest I’ll come back to.
Well you should. I really do like your work.
Bless, you’re too kind.
Snapshots, I’m not too bad at, I’ll admit. But anything that even borders on having to look “commercial” or the sort of thing anyone would pay money for….. it’s out of my league :(
I’ve often considered going to college, taking a photography course. But really, the only use that would be would be time….time where I was concentrating on nothing but photography….I don’t think I’ve anything more to learn about the actual functions of a camera or studio lights or any of that jazz.
But time just isn’t something I have.
